What We're Reading


From Head of People and book club afficiando Asta So:

I read Naomi Alderman's The Power. (TL;DR: Holy moly, this was really good.) It's set in an alternate reality in which girls entering puberty are suddenly able to generate electricity from their hands and learn to use it as a weapon. So the premise becomes, what would happen if women could overpower virtually any man? The book then exploresin a very smart, well-constructed wayhow this affects politics, religion, and everything else. It was a page-turner, and I read the last 2/3 of it in one sitting. My only caveat is that there are some very disturbing scenes (but I never thought they were gratuitous).

What We're Reading


Book coverWeb Engineer Genevieve Crow recently read How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don't, by Lane More:

Reading this book felt like sitting down with my funniest friend just out of a rough patch. Lane Moore hosts Tinder Live, fronts the band It Was Romance, and is a former writer for The Onion and sex and relationships editor for Cosmopolitan. I want to say her memoir was a light read, but it was actually pretty devastating. Moore unapologetically addresses the role of privilege in the arts, family trauma, romance (in media and in life), intimacy, and dating in the age of dating apps. It’s LOL-funny but raw, and she swears a lot.

What We're Reading


Marketing Manager Keriann Strickland recently read Sing, Unburied, Sing, by Jesmyn Ward:

This has been on my reading list for awhile: It received overwhelmingly good reviews when it was published last year, and was one of the New York Times’ 10 Best Books of 2017. When I finished it, I was only sorry I hadn’t read it sooner. The novel tells the story of an African American family facing dissolution via addiction, imprisonment, racism, and death—and two restless ghosts tied to their pasts. Ward’s writing is lyrical and haunting, especially in her aching descriptions of the inseparable bond between two siblings, 13-year-old JoJo and his toddler sister Kayla, and the detachment and self-annihilating tendencies of their mother Leonie.
