Published: Pantheon - February 5th, 2019

A lyrical biography; an elegy for forgotten female scientists and thinkers, the extent of their lives and the intertwining of their work (every person's work, really) with their contemporaries and with our current lives. A view of science that regards the entire weave, instead of slicing it into sections or pulling single threads. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

I discovered Huda on Instagram under her handle @yesimhotinthis; a name which perfectly summarizes the humor and honesty Huda deploys to talk about being a Muslim woman in America. As instructive as it is funny, this book will make you giggle aloud (I did) with hilarious truth. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Finally, a book for Valentine's AND Galentine's. I've read some of these aloud on a date, and they set the mood *quite* nicely. A tantalizing read to be savored at leisure. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Reading these short stories feels equivalent to knowing someone before they were famous. Each one is a seed strong enough to grow into a great novel. For Jemisen's introduction alone - a powerful critique of the publishing industry, its response to afrofuturism, and its evolution over the years - I recommend this book. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

When I say these are poems about love, I mean these are poems about the envy you feel for your lover's attachment to the dog, the love-poem you imagine being written about you, odes to the way red lipstick can raise you from the grave. When I say this is a book for everyone who's ever thought about love, I mean your relationship status is Read this Book. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus
