Reviews by Micah Orsetti:
This book gave me an opportunity to see new possibilities for this favorite classic, ones that grow with the times and include more of us wannabe explorers.
I’ll be honest, I cried after finishing this one, and I’ve never been more sorry not to see a sequel.
This film is less about zombies eating brains and more about examining what humanity means, and I’m completely on board with that.
In a world where it is easier to nurture an us vs. them mentality in the midst of radicalization, Shamsie offers a bold opportunity for compassion.
It’s a slow-burn-yet-gripping sort of mystery that really fits the style of Downton Abbey.
This gem of a comedy is a superb accompaniment to a pair of fuzzy socks, a blanket, and a hot beverage. It gave us permission to relax and live a little..
It’s 1870 and with hard work and steely determination, Bathsheba’s able to rock the boat and hold her own in a man’s world.
I thought that Viceroy’s House would be a heartwarming tale of a new nation being born, but what I saw was far more important.
Not all of us are called to defend the existence of the Holocaust in a high court of justice. But we are all responsible for remembering.
The Cloud Leopard’s Daughter stirs both memory and imagination. I feel robbed that I haven’t been exposed to more of Deborah Challinor’s work!
A collection of women stand together and use every ounce of courage they possess to work outside of the law to right the wrongs of their society.
This film did something different. Nathalie is a woman of incredible self-assurance. She knows who she is and what she doesn’t want in her future.
Beyond the flying trapeze artists and corset fetishists, Ribchester’s sassy and detailed style is wonderfully dimensional for the novel’s early 1900s setting.
Erin Morgenstern’s debut novel is a whimsical delight of autumn, and by that I mean all things wonderful.
In a series of secretive confessions, each woman shares her burden with Sabine since she’s an anomaly. She’s dared to live life independently.
Dido began to beat and claw at the beautiful, dark skin that signaled to society that the rules were different for her. I cried, people.
I laughed (a lot). I told all of my roommates about you as I tried to put into words the window you’d opened into the art world for me
There really is something about a really nice book that makes you happy and keeps making you happy long after the last page has been turned.
