I loved this book. Marilyn's story is both beautiful and tragic. I think what I took away most from this is that she was just a woman who wanted to be loved and respected as an intelligent person, not just admired for her looks. I really appreciated how the story captured what it was like to be a woman, especially a woman in Hollywood, during this time period. I wonder if a lot has really changed today?

I really enjoyed Wild, even though Strayed at 26 is a hot mess. She‘s also endearingly human and navigating relatable emotional and physical losses. Even if I can‘t imagine being lost and alone on the mostly isolated Pacific Crest Trail. It‘s also better now that all the hype has died down too. 🤪

After the emotional rawness of On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous, I needed something fun and uplifting. So I'm starting on this one for my #YearofReadingLitsy. This was a gift from the one and only @monalyisha (and her Moxie) and I'm excited for some fierce riotgrrrl reading!
Bonus: it's also a #OneWordTitle for #ReadwithMrBook @MrBook
Diving into this new-to-me book (tagged) by one of my favorite authors! I love the little details on the hardcover 🦋 #ReadWithMrBook
You go in expecting a rainbow of holiday merry making: dancing fairies, dazzling sugar plums, vibrant nutcracker toys and are instead greeted in the Black Forest of the Hinterland with the harsh tones of the Brothers Grimm. Talk about polarizing!
So in the words of Meryl Streep playing Julia Child: “Good. But not great!” #ReadWithMrBook @MrBook
