Nobody Cares by Anne T. Donahue
Publication Date: September 18th, 2018
Rating: 4 Stars
In this series of essays Anne T. Donahue entertains us with stories of work, school, failure, motivation and so much more. Immediately, her writing puts you at ease. Rather than reading this non-fiction curled up in bed, you are transported to a *bar* (or other such *fun* atmosphere) as you hysterically laugh at Donahue’s encounters, failures and attempts at “adulting.”
Canadian or not, Nobody Cares summarizes experiences we’ve all faced, but rather than looking back with bitterness, this work of art shows us the hilarity of growing up. One cannot help but connect with the struggles entangled in the essays within, similar in nature to that which Lincee Ray gives us in Why I Hate Green Beans.

Publication Date: January 8th, 2019
Rating: 5 Stars
Jessica Farris finds herself entering a psychology study on ethics and morality conducted by Dr. Shields that promises generous compensation as a reward for participation. But, upon advancing beyond the INTENSE questionnaire portion she begins to wonder how far she is willing to go. Is the manipulative nature of her tasks too much? What are the ethical and moral issues Dr. Shields is working to uncover?
When a duo of authors such as Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen combine to create a book like the masterpiece that was The Wife Between Us one can’t help but assume “maybe it was a one hit wonder.” But then, you find yourself engrossed in their upcoming An Anonymous Girl and you can’t help but KNOW you may have stumbled upon a pair of super heroes better than even Batman and Robin. These two are clearly unstoppable as they create another sure hit in this one!
