A wonderful memoir. It‘s not just about Patterson‘s role as mom to a transgender child, though of course that story is compelling. I was equally moved by her stories about her life as a black girl/young woman/professional/partner/mother of five - always relatively privileged, but with her own challenges around family, identity, and purpose. And her writing is great enough to make that as much of a reason to read this as the absorbing content.

This popular science book looks at a variety of current projects intended to bring back extinct species—wooly mammoth, passenger pigeon, aurochs, dinosaurs. She also looks at attempts to engineer the DNA of corals and the functionally extinct American chestnut. Ethics issues are addressed. I found this book to be fascinating and balanced, there is a lot to think about! Also: cloning is not a thing for extinct animals!

Sometimes it is a really bad idea to look at other early reviews before you start reading an ARC because now I really don‘t want to read this, but it publishes on Tuesday, so I must slog through it. *sigh* #Bailey is settled in for the long haul.

Somewhat entertaining and a very fast paced plot. This satire of Harvard life definitely hits some blows, but, overall, still seems to be impressed and in awe of the University as an institution and, in spite of featuring diverse characters, still the underdog heroes had more than a whiff of elitism and deference. #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

Aww this is such a cute story. It's fairly obvious how this story will go and yet I loved it so much. It's a nice and light read with the odd moment of drama in it. The story flows well and the ending us just beautiful. I love Londyn she's so much fun and Callum is great too. What a pairing, a lovely summer romance novel.
