“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.”

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

TheBookAddict You have a really good friend. Enjoy your gifts. 😊 5d
readordierachel What a lovely gift! 5d
Lesliereads @TheBookAddict @readordierachel ....and I had been down in the dumps because of some setbacks but now all I can think about is how the power of moral support, kindness, and delight amongst friends (gifts like those pictured are the whipped cream and cherries on top!) keeps us afloat when other things are letting us down🥰💘. 4d
readordierachel So true 💞 4d
TheBookAddict So true! 💕💕 it‘s always to have those people in our lives who care about us. 😊 4d

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! ??

TheBookAddict It‘s a small branch, way smaller than the one we usually go to, but it‘s closer to us and it‘s quiet. I had to get these books when I saw them in the “new arrivals” shelf (except for Raven Boys - I looked for that one). I‘m going to sound like a total nerd, but I‘ve only heard of “The Shadow King” in an episode of the XMen cartoons when Storm goes back to Africa to find out what‘s going on with her people and a kid she fostered/adopted. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 1w
TheBookAddict @MrBook I think I‘ve found my TBR pile for your #LitsyPartyofOne #Readathon! I‘m so excited to get to read these! Have you read or heard anything about these books? #LitsyLovesLibraries 1w
MrBook I‘ve heard good things about all of them! I think my library might have copies of each. 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1w
TheBookAddict @MrBook 🙂👍🏽 I‘m glad you‘ve heard good things about them. I hope I enjoy them as well. 1w
