Ben was a baby boomer transgender man. He didn‘t transition until his 40s, so he understood the treatment of both women and men in science. He wrote this book as he was dying of pancreatic cancer. In addition to being fairly heavy on the science of his discoveries, he also shares about the sexism he encountered as a young person and his tireless advocacy on the part of women in the hard sciences. #audiobook

After reading the blurb and a few reviews I didn‘t expect to enjoy this, but if you just acknowledge that it‘s a YA romance, it can be amusing and enjoyable to know it will all work out in the end. Prudence kind of drove me crazy with her complete lack of communication skills and a bit more character growth would have been good, but it was a fun listen. The beach town setting and supporting characters were wonderful. 🏝 🦭

Despite @rachelsbrittain ‘s so-so on this one, my love of all things cultish made me want to give this a try.

It‘s a look at the author‘s childhood in and leaving the Children of God cult. I watched a show on ID about three women who were in as kids and it was equal parts disturbing and fascinating.

I‘ll tag anyone interested in my review. #NewReleaseTuesday #audiobook

Pretty sky here in KY this afternoon!

britt_brooke I haven‘t read much about this cult. #stacked 2d

This novel is completely banana pants and I‘m totally here for it. The narrator arrives in the subdivision where the story unravels like a puzzle (glaringly, a jigsaw puzzle serves as a recurring metaphor). The story proceeds down false hallways and reveals both clues and red herrings about what is going on here. Weird and wonderful. #Netgalley #arc #audiobook

I read this novella when it first came out a few months ago. It‘s part of the A Stitch in Time series and goes between books 1 and 2. After finishing the audiobook of book 2 the other night, I decided to grab the audiobook for the novella. It‘s a Christmas story so it‘s perfect reading for this time of year. I wish more people knew about this series! If you love time travel/historical fiction then you will definitely find something to like. ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 I love these characters and really can‘t get enough of this series. Pardon my gushing! 5⭐️ 5d
Laughterhp This series is on my TBR, but haven‘t gotten to it yet! 5d

This is good historical fiction that is also perfect for bibliophiles. I grabbed the audiobook and really enjoyed it. It‘s set in London at the beginning of WWII, during the Blitz. Grace gets a job at a bookstore with a slightly cranky old man and works hard to get the store in better shape. Along the way, she falls in love with books and reading, something she never really did before. It‘s like living vicariously through someone who is just ⬇️

Crazeedi I've borrowed this twice and never got to it. I really need to get again and read!!! 5d
JenlovesJT47 Discovering the wonders of reading and watching through their eyes as they see the huge world awaiting them in the pages of books. This is easy listening, and although the war looms throughout the story, I love seeing her transformation into a booklover. Yes, I am a nerd. 🤓4⭐️ 5d
