Aside from the obvious age gap love story (“love story”), this book doesn’t actually have much at all in common with Lolita. The vibe I’m getting is far more Tao Lin than Vladimir Nabokov. Brooks does a great job of describing digital life as an extension of everyday life, which is really cool. —Elizabeth
So far I’m winning at my goal of reading more graphic novels in 2015. I’ve found that most of them tend to be quick reads, yet that doesn’t mean they sacrifice any depth or emotional connection to the reader. This book in particular is really hitting me in terms of the honest portrayal of preordained gender roles truly influence behavior and thoughts. —Kelly
This is the dramatic behind-the-scenes story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly: Wilbur and Orville Wright. As a history major, I have always been fascinated in David McCullough‘s ability to detail the importance of his main characters in extraordinary historical events. —Bob
Reading about family dynamics is really interesting to me because I feel like no matter how different they are, you still inevitably see your own family in them. This is the memoir of a daughter coming to terms with the fact that her mother left her family, and it’s sure to make any reader think about the ripples caused by single events and how families recover. —Kelly
