This entire series is outstanding! The graphic format works perfectly. The art is powerful and provocative and the story pulls you in from the first frame. I cannot recommend this series highly enough. #nonfictionnovember2016

It was a little slow for me at the beginning, but once I got into it, I was in for good. The Muse brothers were taken by a circus and kept from their mother for years. Macy explores their individual story, some of the history of circuses and sideshows, and the Jim Crow south that made it difficult for her to find and protect her sons. Weaving through all of this was a wonderful story of intergenerational family love. #nonfictionnovember2016

Bleak, but engrossing read. Dystopian non-fiction, it's hard to wrap my head around the fact that is is reality for millions of people. #nonfictionnovember2016

Books about religion are not in my wheelhouse, but this one really worked for me. The focus on grace and acceptance was a message I appreciated and was a timely reminder to me that true faith isn't what we often see in the media and it isn't something that should ever be used to exclude or judge. I needed this more than I realized when I picked it up. #NonfictionNovember2016

Interesting look at the drug wars on the US/Mexico border. Good mix of context material and direct stories of several American teenagers moving up in the cartels. This is an incredibly violent world and it was clear that there are no easy answers to these problems. #nonfictionnovember2016

My #nonfictionnovember2016 hasn't gone as I originally planned. I haven't read that many books of that genre because the one I started with was so deep, dark and depressing that I needed a break. Now I'm ready to get back in line with this. I so enjoyed the first book. I hope this is just as good.

Martta @Suzze Yes! I so love the non-fiction books that tell about the society from a different angle. I think I need to watch the tv-series when I'm done with these three books. 3y
GlitteryOtters I've read the first and watched the series (yes, you definitely need to see it!), but I haven't read this one yet. Definitely let us know how you like it! 3y

Enjoyed the audio of this. This one touched on a lot of topics that I want to explore further including the level of vitriol people use when shaming others as well as the impact of shame as it is used in the criminal justice system. #nonfictionnovember2016

tpixie Great and true quote!!! 3y
Meg11726 Oh enjoy! I will be interested to know what you think. I read this in one day (actually during a very slow shift) and there were times I laughed out loud and times I feel like I may have had some dirt in my eye and how much on point and true it really is. I wish I could have actually found a hard copy of this novel. I had to download it on my kobo. 3y
Godmotherx5 @tpixie The book had some great quotes. 3y

Godmotherx5 @Meg11726 EMTs and paramedics have a hard, dangerous job. This book was honest without restraint. I hope this book brings their important role to the forefront so they receive the accolades they deserve. I worked with a few during transports when I worked L&D. They taught me a lot. Especially what to do when you see them in traffic. People are terrible drivers & it's so simple to stop if you can't pull over. 3y
Godmotherx5 @Meg11726 You deserve the book more than I do. I'd be happy to give you my copy. You can inbox me on Goodreads if you like. 3y
Meg11726 @Godmotherx5 you're an absolute doll. But that's quite okay!! Thank you though for the thought. I will find you on goodreads though regardless. Enjoy it 😘 3y
Meg11726 @Godmotherx5 okay. So I have no idea how to search for people on goodreads!! My user name is Meg on there and it's a wedding picture. I can't be that complicated can it?! 😂 3y
tpixie I've only used good reads as a place to keep track of what I've read. Not as social media. 3y
Godmotherx5 @tpixie I use the email for people I've met at book functions. Works well when necessary. 3y
Godmotherx5 @Meg11726 I'm having trouble with my Internet access on my laptop. I'll look you up on goodreads as soon as I resolve the issue. Can't add friends from the phone app. 3y
Meg11726 Ah that explains it. I've only used it on my phone! 3y
Godmotherx5 @Meg11726 I can't find your name. If I just search "Meg" it brings up several & the photos are blocked. In the meantime, here is my link on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/8372971-tina

Meg11726 I got ya!!! Gosh, who knew electronics and apps can be so complicated 😂 3y
Godmotherx5 @Meg11726 Exactly 😊 3y

SCOTUS has been in the news a lot lately and a book about two women with different political views working together seemed timely. This was absolutely riveting. I learned so much from reading this and will be seeking out more about SCOTUS and the justices. Also, RBG is my hero. #NonfictionNovember2016
