Bekah grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to Olympia in the fall of 2016 to pursue her undergraduate degree at The Evergreen State College. When she is not working at the bookshop or the hospital or studying-- you can find her needle felting the microcosms of her imagination or eating shrimp tacos at QB. She loves to get lost within depressive forms of literature-- recommending the light and fluffy has been a welcomed challenge.
This book spoke to my soul and made me re-evaluate my relationship to myself and others around me -- I highly recommend it!
Renee Nault constructs a beautiful adaption of The Handmaid's Tale -- a dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood. Set in the near- future in the horrific world of Gilead -- where women are denied their rights -- the protagonist, Offred, is only valued for her fertility. Read the novel first, then the graphic novel!
A prose meditation on grief, death, writing, and love. I cried through most of this novel.
brown invites readers to engage wtih Emergent Strategy in non-linear ways. Start at the beginning, the end, or halfway through! But don't skip the chapter on resilience -- it's the most magical. Also, if you love Octavia E. Butler, read this!!!
Hopkinson's stories tend to bore a small hole in your heart and rest there long after you have finished reading. The ordinary is blended with the magical and the horrific. "The Glass Bottle Trick" is my favourite.
I resonated so much with Julie's art and her words. A beautiful meditation that I will constantly return to."
A great read for anyone struggling with chronic depression and anxiety and/or PTSD-- looking for alternatives to prescribed medication. Waldman's writing is witty and relatable.
