Remarkably Bright Creatures is a Remarkable Treasure: A Review of Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
Shelby Van Pelt’s debut novel, Remarkably Bright Creatures is a full stop flat out masterpiece. This may be cliche, but words are not enough to express the way I feel about this novel and especially its surprise, unexpected, delightful sometimes narrator Marcellus, the giant Pacific Octopus with three hearts of gold. I won’t spoil it but it is safe to say that tears were shed in a way that I have not cried over a book being so beautiful and moving since grade school and my time with Charlotte’s Web or Bridge to Terabithia.

The best way to experience Plath's writing is to read her letters. Her poetry is like living in a beautiful world, but her letters are like experiencing her electrical insights. The sight of such a prolific poet in utter despair will make you sad, and you will wonder what you can do to save such a beautiful soul. This book will give you an entirely new reading experience. She addresses most of her letters to her mother, Aurelia, who is the editor. The most interesting part of the book for me is when she tells about her interviews with Marianne Moore, lecturing with W.H. Auden, and later, dining with T.S. Eliot and his wife. Her early letters show a glimpse into her life. When she meets Ted Hughes in these early letters, she reflects her love for life. The beauty of it all is her love for life. And yet, her tragic end is truly heartbreaking.
5 Classic Books That Never Get Old
An homage to classic literature that can stand the test of time. Book genres can be pretty subjective. To some, American Psycho is an unadulterated horror; to others, it’s a simple dark comedy.

Another way in which fiction reflects reality so well
I really wish I could remember who recommended the Six of Crows duology to me so I could thank them. I don’t typically go in for fantasy-type novels, but I am so glad I gave this one a try. I’m now on the next duology, King of Scars, by the same author, Leigh Bardugo.

The month that celebrates poets and poetry is April
Most people say no or look at you with a blank stare or a shrug. A poem speaks overtly or covertly to you with words and their meaning. The sound in each sentence with its ebb and flow can produce shock and awe or loud guffaws. April is National Poetry Month. The acronym for this month is #NaPoWriMo. There is also a global poetry effort called #GloPoWriMo. Both encourage people to write poetry every day in April. Prompts are distributed on many sites to give you a catalyst to create new work.
The Time Traveler's Wife Made Me Fall Back in Love With Fiction and Reading
“When I was young I didn’t understand, but now, I know, how absence can be present, like a damaged nerve, like a dark bird.” ― Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife.
The Joy of Reading
If there's one skill I value above all others, it is the ability to read. My mom told me that at an early age I could read back some of my favorite stories, though she wasn't sure whether I had just memorized them. In any event, reading came easily to me and I was always quite good at it.
