What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Life on Mars

Life on Mars - Tracy K. Smith Smith explores some interesting science/astronomy related themes in her poems, and creates some very compelling ones.

I'd suggest her memoir first ([b:Ordinary Light: A memoir|22889754|Ordinary Light A memoir|Tracy K. Smith|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1422216506s/22889754.jpg|42459909]), though. It brings the same poetic writing style to analyzing her relationship with her mother and religion, which informs her poetry in an interesting way.
