My current library book stack:
📖 Zoli by Colum McCann
📖 The Tenth Island by Diana Marcum
📖 The Absent One by Jussi Adler-Olsen
📖 Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe
I‘ve already listened to Say Nothing on audio, but sometimes I like to check out the print version of a book as well, to help me find my favorite parts again or see if there are any pictures included.
1. Snarky detective stories are my literary mac n cheese.
2. Party tomorrow afternoon!
3. One of my favorites so far.
4. I can put my hands flat on the floor while standing without bending my knees. Mostly because I have short legs.
New to me author 2.0 for #Booked2019 and written by a journalist for #ReadHarder as well as a #blameitonlitsy book.
The author is a bit quirky, and the story sometimes circles back on itself, but I thought it was charming and interesting. Now I want to visit the Azores!
Diana Marcums life changes when she discovers a group of immigrants from the Azorean Islands living in the Central Valley of California, fleeing a Portuguese dictator and a massive volcanic eruption, between 1950 and 1980.
Her energy and fascination can be felt throughout.She learns of a culture that makes her question her own.a land she never knew existed and a land she can not forget.

This book was definitely interesting although it made me realize how my educational experience was sub par in the geography department. I had never even heard of the Azores before, but they sound incredible; full of rich culture and wonderful people.
