    Book Review: Why Stuff Matters by Jen Waldo

    Why Stuff Matters is the second book written by author Jen Waldo. Her debut novel Old Buildings in North Texas was a funny, quirky, and slightly dark work of fiction that felt truly original (you can find my review here). This novel was a strong follow up to her first and did not disappoint – I loved it! While the author has returned to her Caprock, Texas setting, this is a standalone book. Read on to learn more about the book and author. I was provided a copy of the book for review purposes; this post may contain affiliate links.
