I hope you find something you like! Sounds like a good time for some just-for-fun reading.

I agree this sounds like a tough book to review, but it sounds very worth reading. I haven't read his other book either, but I do read his essays in The Atlantic.

This is one of my favorite books. I read it many years ago, but I find I make references to Stepford wives ALL the time. I don't think I've ever seen a good adaptation of it.

I haven't read this one yet but definitely plan to! And like you I'm reading a lot more authors of color this year. Since you liked this one, if you haven't read The Hate U Give, I highly recommend it.

I'm glad you loved this book as much as I did! Can't say enough good things. I hear the audiobook is great because he reads it -- but I felt like I could hear him in my head as I was reading. I think he's getting better and better on the Daily Show. I liked him already but I see him differently now that I know so much about his childhood.

I love this graphic! Good job with the POC and non-US authors. I've been reading a lot more of those this year too. Don't know what my percentage would be though, I may have to do a count.

You've got a great list! I've only read The Aeronaut's Windlass but I loved it. I'm curious about Maria Doria Russell's book, since I thought The Sparrow was fascinating.

Thanks for the heads up! I don't know how the comment feature got disabled but now I know to watch for that.

Lonesome Dove is such a great book! I haven't read your other authors. Some of mine were Belinda Bauer, Amy Stewart, and Celeste Ng.

I really liked this book, and I liked that Douglas was a mostly nice guy but not a perfect husband and father. At times I felt like I was reading about my parents' horrible marriage, which should have been awful but I found the book really insightful. I also really liked the travel aspect. I'm a big fan of One Day too, but liked this one better.
