"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Silas Palmer is America's golden boy when it comes to Rockstars. His band is what dreams are made of, and he's lived those dreams to the fullest. But he's also done -- done with the band, with the fame, and with all the rest that comes along with it. He needs something different. He needs a reason to remember why he loves music so much in the first place.
And so, these two opposites meet by chance, and thus the ride begins. Literally, on the side of the road when she picks him up, and figuratively, too.
I had meant to read Clutch a while ago, but life got in the way for me. So it lingered on my kindle far longer than it should have.
Pansy is what some might consider to be a bit of a flake, but really, she's just trying to figure out this life thing. She doesn't know what she wants, and she's never found something that gets her excited enough to continue to pursue it with her whole heart.
And then she does ...
And she is amazing.
Silas is at a point in his life where the sex, drugs, and rock and roll just isn't doing it for him. He's worn out, used up, and he knows it. He knows if he keeps going, it's going to leave him with nothing, or it's going to kill him. Add in baggage like shoddy parents and a troubled bandmate, and it really makes for an interesting storyline.
He, too, is looking for something he hasn't yet found. A muse for life.
And then he does.
And he is amazing.
The book is a slow burn. But by the end, everything is perfect and wonderful. I am a huge fan of epilogues, so getting that thrown in there was a treat, too. Also loved the formatting in this book -- all the chapter headers were very cute.
I am a huge fan of SM West. I am so proud of how well she's telling these stories, and how I can really see her growth with each new book I pick up. I don't know if enough people are telling her or not, but she is doing the thing! Doing all the things, I swear.
I can't wait for Green.
And everything else, too.
