It looks like I read more than usual this month, but two of these books were short poetry books and two were short stories.

The Light of the World: A Memoir | Elizabeth Alexander

• ModernMrsDarcy.com #MMD book club pick for March 2022 #MMDBookClub

I was pretty sure that I didn‘t like poetry. I guess the real problem was that I hadn‘t found the right poet for me. Well, Elizabeth Alexander just touched my heart with her words in unimaginable ways.

In The Light of the World, Elizabeth Alexander finds herself at an existential crossroads after the sudden death of her husband.

tokorowilliamwallace Something similar occurred to me with a recommendation of Wislawa Szymborska almost three years ago. Though it probably was mainly the person who recommended and the context of the situation at hand, with the opening of my emotionality and sentimentality which I'm sure allowed for it---perfect storm, so to speak. 3mo

Suzze What did you think of E.R. Nurses? I bought it when it first came out, and haven‘t been hearing much about it. 4mo
suvata @Suzze I don‘t like to be harsh but, here is the review I posted after reading it: 5-stars to the courageous health professionals who shared their stories
2-stars to the authors and publishers who slapped this book together in a money-grab
(edited) 4mo
Suzze @suvata That‘s what I was worried about. I should have known better. 4mo

suvata @Suzze Yep. Me too. 😆 4mo
Larkken @Suzze @suvata I just finished a dif “nonfiction” book by Patterson and was similarly let down! Think I‘ll steer clear of him in any form from now on. 4mo
suvata @Larkken I think the only ones he writes himself are the Alex Cross books. And maybe the Women‘s Murder Club. All the rest of them have a co-authors names on them. I‘m pretty sure he doesn‘t write them himself. There is no way anyone could write a book a month by himself. I think James Patterson has become a corporation. 4mo
Larkken @suvata ewww lol 😂 4mo

Reading instead of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
for • ModernMrsDarcy.com #MMD book club flight pick for February 2022 #MMDBookClub

Not for me at this time.

From the Publisher:
A baker in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, must travel to Paris to uncover a family secret for her dying grandmother—and what she learns may change everything. The Sweetness of Forgetting is the book that made Kristin Harmel an international bestseller.

I couldn‘t enough of this story about three generations of woman in this family from Toronto. Nine-year-loss, Swiv, has been expelled from school for fighting. Mooshie is Swiv's pregnant mother and relies on her mother, Mooshie, to look after Swiv‘s father leaves them. The relationship between these three is absolutely dysfunctional yet, surprisingly, enviable.

I‘ve read all three of Amor Towels novels and this was my least favorite of the three. It is an interesting story about a 1950s American trip embarked upon by a couple of 18-year-old boys and an 8-year-old boy who never quite make it to their destination. To me it seemed a bit wordy and slow moving. Of course, you may have a totally different opinion. Still worth the read.
