“The war is here, the war is here, the foreigners are coming. Her heart hammers violently.”
“A gripping novel set during Mussolini‘s 1935 invasion of Ethiopia, The shadow King takes us back to the first real conflict of World War II, casting light in the women soldiers who were left out of the historical records.”

All for the love of books and our #LitsyFamily! Congrats again @MrBook !
My friend, Jayatta - though several hundred miles away - still spoils me rotten via her thoughtfulness and the postal service. She keeps me supplied with fresh bookmarks, notepads, journals, and, TODAY a signed copy of this book!🙏🏾🥰🎈#bookishfriends #signedfirsteditions #gratitude #maazamengiste #gifts
I have had a fascination with the Kennedy‘s lately (pretty much began after reading 11/22/63), and have read quite a bit of nonfiction about JFK and Jackie. I especially liked Secret Service agent Clint Hill‘s books. I thought a fictionalized story like this would be a fun change, but nothing really drew me in. I couldn‘t find anything to like about Alicia, and found myself waiting for times she was with Jack, only to be disappointed again. BAIL
My #LibraryFinds from Saturday. I didn‘t post this earlier because I was super busy on Saturday with laundry and some sewing. We were going to Dollar Tree for a quick stop for some essentials and I turned on Pokémon Go to hit some stops on the way and one of the stops across from DT was a library branch we didn‘t even know was there. So we did what any reasonable human being would do and we went into the library to scope it out. We liked it! ??
