Books | The Rest of 2016

Books: The Rest of 2016 | No Apathy Allowed

In August, I shared my thoughts on the 10 books I had read so far in 2016 — so it’s long overdue for me to share a bit about the 8 books that rounded out the year… Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi was by far my favorite among this group. It starts with two half-sisters born in Ghana in …

My Top Books of 2015

Favorite books of 2015 | No Apathy Allowed

At the end of each year, I love taking a look at all the books that have been my companions during my commutes and the quiet moments at home (see my posts from 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011).  I’ve loved reading since I was a kid, but I’m not as speedy as some of my friends …

Americanah

I’ve been reading like crazy lately and I love it!  I had fun sharing my winter 2014  roundup of books, so how about we talk about spring?  (Especially since I just started A Tale for the Time Being and Das Schloss — both 450+ pages —  which will certainly last me well into summer.)
