#BookReport 09/20

Tuning in from the Omani desert 🐫 🌵!

In between enjoying all the gorgeous nature, super friendly people and wonderful culture I have read four books. I enjoyed all of them except for the tagged one, that was disappointing for me. Into the Fire and Soviet Milk are two gems 💎, really!

Blount's travelogue is appropriately subtitled "Rambles Around New Orleans". It is by no means a travel guide and by no means gives a fully rounded view of the city. But it is a charming ramble around town filled with charming, rambling stories of New Orleans and the time Blount has spent there. A good way to spend time with NOLA if you've already visited and fell in love.

I understand this book has good rating on Goodreads. I am, however, not very into it. This is a story about the author‘s family and the New Orleans East. I enjoy the portion related to the New Orleans East, but not the author‘s family history. This book got me thinking what kind of memoir I would like to read.

This one started out strong and then I became kind of bored with the characters and the predictable plot. It all felt a bit flat to me. Underwhelming. Just like with All Grown Up. I think Jami Attenberg is just not for me. #ToB2020

Megabooks Agree. Not her best. 3d
JennyM Your reading location looks AMAZING!!!! Enjoy xx 3d
Kalalalatja Perfect reading spot, though 😍 3d

Hooked_on_books She actually doesn‘t appeal to me, so I‘ve never read her. But what a great spot! 🌴 3d
Megabooks Omg, how could I not have noticed your awesome cabana?!? Enjoy the sunshine, friend!! 🎉☀️ 3d
Cinfhen I love her but I agree; this wasn‘t her strongest book. Is it that hot right now in Jordan? It‘s pleasant in Israel but definitely not pool weather. Enjoy the beautiful sunshine ☀️cute pedi color 💜 (edited) 2d
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen It‘s Oman! It‘s about 30 degrees and the pool is perfect. The sea too, for that matter 😍. We‘ve had two lazy days but tomorrow we‘re going inland! @JennyM @Kalalalatja @Hooked_on_books @Megabooks (edited) 2d

Easily one of the best books I‘ve ever read, in a way that I related to it so deeply.

She smiled a friendly, concerned smile, not a smile that said she‘d help, just one that acknowledged his struggle. Men never really wanted your help anyway, she thought. They wanted you to do things for them, but it would never be thought of as help so much as required service.

Last night @rather_be_reading be reading and I went to a reading by this highly talented author. It was an amazing presentation and Broom is a simply captivating speaker. I found this book to be a highly readable ethnography of her family, a criticism of government failures, and an uplifting story of hope and resilience. During the presentation Broom said “We are more than the sum of our disasters.” That just sums it up!

It was absolutely amazing hearing these women speak. Their stories are so different yet the same. Me and @Come-read-with-me had a great time and the time just flew.
