Modern Book Reviews

With the millions of books being released each year, it can be challenging to know which ones are worth the time to read. Here are my reviews of modern books, to help guide you in knowing which to invest your time in. I keep this list separate from the classics and the top sellers of all time - I think both of those categories are "must reads" to help a person be current with themes and ideas which will be commonly found in our modern culture.

Bitter Sweets - Roopa Farooki
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz
Bright Lights, Big Ass - Jen Lancaster
Eat Pray Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
