I Miss You When I Blink: Essays | Mary Laura Philpott

Essays but also sort of memoir. Witty and fun while covering some more serious issues.

#30JuneBooks - Laughter: When searching for a book for this prompt, I realized that I have far more books that made me cry than made me laugh. I really need to hang out in the humor section of the bookstore more often or search out authors who know it‘s okay to laugh at yourself.
This book made me laugh before even opening... the cover is hilarious 🤣 and perfect for the content.

Andrea313 Perfect choice for this prompt! I love Samantha Irby, and this book, so much. I can't wait to read her next collection! 7h
Megabooks She just announced a new collection coming out in 2020!! 3h

Even though I have this book in print, I checked the audiobook out from the library because I haven‘t read it yet, and I felt like listening to Neil Gaiman‘s voice. Goodnight, y‘all.

JaclynW Listening to Neil Gaiman's voice is always a wonderful idea! 😍 16h

Can You Tolerate This? | Ashleigh Young

With a poet‘s quiet flair, these award-winning essays meander from personal relationships to body image to living a creative life. Ashleigh Young grew up in a small town in New Zealand, nurturing her rich imagination and paying close attention to people around her. I enjoyed viewing the world through her windows. #newzealand

Don‘t count on anyone else to remember anything; they‘ll remember it wrong or they‘ll remember it mercilessly. She must write it all down before it‘s too late. She doesn‘t need to use a pseudonym but might consider changing some names here and there.

Lunchtime book stack with spicy hummus & carrots. THE GABRIEL HOUNDS didn‘t pass the 50-page test—a major disappointment, given how much I loved my first Mary Stewart—but A MIND SPREAD OUT ON THE GROUND is excellent so far and I think I might‘ve finally found my way into TO YOUR ETERNITY with volume 3.

Thinking of using this one as a supplemental text for my first year students. I think Keegan‘s ability to write an essay would be perfect and relatable for them!

Cathythoughts I love the title 👍🏻♥️ 1d

I‘ve come to yoga without any knowledge of its philosophy. I have only a desire to free myself from an awkwardness that I experience as something continually toppling and rebuilding itself deep inside me, and from the stark loathing of my body I‘ve felt as long as I can remember; it encases me as seamlessly as my skin.

“Can you tolerate this?” he asks. You try to nod. You hadn‘t known that vertebrae could reach so far up, right to the back of the brain.
“Oh yes. The vertebrae go all the way up to the head, like a ladder. Humans are really just highly evolved ladders.”
