So I‘m a bit obsessed with national parks...and therefore I loved this book! It gives a great behind-the-scenes perspective on the life of a park ranger and the wildlife in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Anyone who enjoys the outdoors or who appreciates wildlife will find a kindred spirit in this author. 💚

I have a #SmallBlueThing ?or rather a love for the color blue & blue things both big & small. Here are nine books I have read with "blue" in their title. ?

#24in48 #readathon Update: I slept from about 12:30 to 5:30 AM & now I am up & going to do a little reading before I head out for breakfast & reading & errands. Still at 5 hours but hoping to pick up the pace today. How's everyone who is doing the #24in48readathindoing doing?

I truly enjoyed this book. Although I wish it went into a little more detail about the war, I liked to see June's journey throughout the book. The one thing I honestly disliked about this novel was Sam. He was one giant red flag after another to me..

Things get real serious in MS when your A/C stops working in July. 😭 Thankfully we have separate unit that cools our bedrooms ( if not we'd be packing up and moving in with my parents lol) but the rest of the house is miserable. It's this hot at 7 pm 😭😭😭😭

jen_the_scribe I feel for you. We recently had to replace our A/C unit after it kept breaking down even after multiple repairs. We live in FL so it was miserable. 2w
CindyMyLifeIsLit We‘ve had that problem in Houston. Thank God for dual a/c!! 😁 2w

She was thankful to him for seeing more in her than she had recognized in herself and helping her to also see it. But he wasn't responsible for it; she alone was responsible for who she was.

Camille and her brother Finley grow up together in an unstable household. They support each other but then Finley moves out and they drift apart. Although it is well written, the story rambles and goes on way too long. In the end I just wanted to be done with it.

squirrelbrain I gave this one a pick but perhaps should have been a so-so. I felt that the story of Finlay felt really distant when he moved out- like we weren‘t involved at all... 4w
BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain Yes I completely agreed with your review. It didn‘t make sense to make the story about him while he‘s not there most of the time! 4w
Librarybelle What a shame, but at least you have another state completed! 4w

Kingsolver is a masterful storyteller and just so amazing at narrating her own books. I love her smooth, honeyed voice building up these characters that become a little bit real. This one was a bit too long, and Prodigal Summer still holds the spot for my favorite of hers, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book.

This good book has been on my bookshelf for far too long. Dr. Bill Bass shares how he became interested in forensic anthropology and the progression of his career. Fascinating story of how the body farm came into existence and grew. He talks about his relationship with Patricia Cornwell and her book The Body Farm. #MountTBR #ReadingUSA2019 #Tennessee
