This is a really interesting book and I would recommend it for most people. Dr. Blackstone speaks to some of the concepts reflected in other recent works regarding how the body holds memories and experiences, and she takes things a step further teaching the reader how to bring awareness into their body to those places, and perhaps most importantly, to release. ~ Reviewed by Arabella Peterson

I am a massive fan of this book. Written with trauma survivors particularly in mind, the grounding postures and practices here would be helpful also for those experiencing a lot of stress, those dealing with their bodily autonomy being threatened, or for anyone who needs some help bringing their awareness and energy back into their body, and creating a safe space within themself. ~ Reviewed by Arabella Peterson

Bobby Western, an experienced salvage diver, finds the bodies of nine people in a submerged jet off the Mississippi coast. The remains of a tenth person should have been aboard the plane. The fate of the missing passenger begins to haunt a life already teetering on a narrow ledge of sanity. If there is anything Bobby doesn't need, it is another ghost whispering in his ear. In a startlingly original novel that is, by turns, exasperating and exhilarating, McCarthy leads the reader into the bleak forest of one man's tortured soul, where the light is dimming, the briars draw blood, and the winds of regret never stop blowing. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

A 1793 date rape in New York City brought to meticulous life. The 17-year old victim did something unheard of: she pressed charges against the assailant. Her story, and the city itself. are intimately detailed, and the heavily patriarchal 18th Century culture disturbingly resonates today. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

This is a great book. The recipes here range from the classic, simple, and straightforward to the layered, infused, or otherwise inventive and modern. As such, it is a great book for anyone, whether you're a whiskey drinker (like me) or open to becoming one. ~ Reviewed by Arabella Peterson

Merciless takedown not only of a former president, but of the sycophants within an increasingly radicalized party. Leibovich delivers the goods with gallows humor that prevents his outrage from curdling into self-righteous anger. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
