Aimee Jodoin, Book Reviewer

A former editor at Foreword Reviews, Aimee Jodoin now lives the library life in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She prefers to be surrounded by books of the contemporary literary and science fiction variety; her favorite authors are Haruki Murakami, Zadie Smith, Karen Russell, and Kazuo Ishiguro, though progressive debut novels are what truly give her joy. Her interests both in and out of books include feminism, healthy living, environmental sustainability, and cats. She is currently—perpetually—writing a novel, of course.
