This book challenges you to see these wives of ISIS fighters as humans, not monsters, subject to the same foils as the rest of us. So many of the young people in this book were frustrated by broken promises of radical change. Are there lessons we can learn here, say, for the Climate Strikers that politicians have failed to mollify? Perhaps.

5⭐️

Focused on the influence on elements, Pollan takes the reader through a journey of fire, water, air and earth. He shows how in our modern civilizations we have become rather disconnected from the food we eat. The influences the 4 elements have on our daily lives is very apparent when you take to time to actually observe what is happening to our food and how it is made.

3.5⭐️

A fun collection of stories focused on strong women in world history. I did really enjoy the wide variety of class levels, time periods and cultures/ethnicities being portrayed in the book. These are great resources for young women to gain access to because of the opportunities of inspiration and finding a new role model.

Paperbacks from Hell | Grady Hendrix

this was a quick but interesting read 😊 I really enjoyed Hendrix's analysis of various pulp-y paperbacks though I wish parts of the books were organized better (history of horror fiction vs specific themes/recurring topics) and I would also love to hear more of Hendrix's recommendations for specific titles. Still, I enjoyed the analysis of the various time periods and how they influenced many of the books.

Loved loved loved this book. Not only is it a biography of the first female creatives in Hollywood, but it is also a memoir of O‘Meara‘s journey of researching Milicent and how little has changed in Hollywood in the 70+ years since Milicent began her career. 5⭐️#biography #memoir #2019 #nonfiction #bookreview

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Truly worth the #PulitzerPrize.
An absolute thrill to read. Mukherjee does an excellent job of taking such a complex and technical subject and bring it to a level that the average reader can understand.
This book is perfect if you're trying to get a better understanding of what cancer is and why we haven't discovered a cure yet.
