Nicole's Picks

I primarily enjoy literary and strange fiction. Many of my favorite books deal with grief and healing, tough ambiguity, and compelling characters. Quirkiness is a plus! I also really enjoy science fiction, fantasy, and YA that feature marginalized characters and socially conscious writing. I'm also finding myself drawn to personal narrative and memoir, as well as the occassional thriller.
