When I saw Ai Weiwei‘s ancient vases covered in paint in a museum, I scratched my head & wondered if he was nuts. Conceptual art is like that. Reading his memoir illuminated much: what an amazing, fascinating life he has lived until now! The world-famous artist is a born contrarian who uses his creative energy to battle human rights abuses in China. I look at his work (online) with new understanding. #Audiobook read by David Shih.

Karisa His exhibit at Alcatraz was the most amazing art show I‘ve ever seen. So many human rights activists were represented, spoke about mental health, and the mediums used were so varied (from legos to ceramics to giant fabric dragons). It stretched throughout several buildings/rooms. It was stunning! 57m
Lindy @Karisa oooh! That does sound stunning. 14m

I adore Agatha Raisin and am almost caught up with the series. While I wait for the last book from the library, I found this novella on Audible Plus that is about Agatha‘s “first case”. We get to see Aggie at age 26, just starting out in her PR career. Lots of classic Agathaisms here and I recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Agatha Raisin series. 4⭐️

Ben was a baby boomer transgender man. He didn‘t transition until his 40s, so he understood the treatment of both women and men in science. He wrote this book as he was dying of pancreatic cancer. In addition to being fairly heavy on the science of his discoveries, he also shares about the sexism he encountered as a young person and his tireless advocacy on the part of women in the hard sciences. #audiobook

After reading the blurb and a few reviews I didn‘t expect to enjoy this, but if you just acknowledge that it‘s a YA romance, it can be amusing and enjoyable to know it will all work out in the end. Prudence kind of drove me crazy with her complete lack of communication skills and a bit more character growth would have been good, but it was a fun listen. The beach town setting and supporting characters were wonderful. 🏝 🦭

Despite @rachelsbrittain ‘s so-so on this one, my love of all things cultish made me want to give this a try.

It‘s a look at the author‘s childhood in and leaving the Children of God cult. I watched a show on ID about three women who were in as kids and it was equal parts disturbing and fascinating.

I‘ll tag anyone interested in my review. #NewReleaseTuesday #audiobook

Pretty sky here in KY this afternoon!

This novel is completely banana pants and I‘m totally here for it. The narrator arrives in the subdivision where the story unravels like a puzzle (glaringly, a jigsaw puzzle serves as a recurring metaphor). The story proceeds down false hallways and reveals both clues and red herrings about what is going on here. Weird and wonderful. #Netgalley #arc #audiobook

I read this novella when it first came out a few months ago. It‘s part of the A Stitch in Time series and goes between books 1 and 2. After finishing the audiobook of book 2 the other night, I decided to grab the audiobook for the novella. It‘s a Christmas story so it‘s perfect reading for this time of year. I wish more people knew about this series! If you love time travel/historical fiction then you will definitely find something to like. ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 I love these characters and really can‘t get enough of this series. Pardon my gushing! 5⭐️ 7d
Laughterhp This series is on my TBR, but haven‘t gotten to it yet! 7d
