Pickpick

I enjoyed this memoir that blends the story of the author‘s season in a traveling sideshow act with her mother‘s life after a serious stroke. The way the two parts were woven together worked well, but I did enjoy the stories about the sideshow more. It‘s not something I ever really felt the need to learn, but it was interesting. I also enjoyed the bits of history she included (see the comments for my favorite).

I started this month‘s @litsybookclub pick on my way to work this morning and continued listening on my evening walk. I didn‘t quite know what to expect from the blurb, but so far I‘m intrigued by the stories of joining the sideshow.

Daisey @BarbaraTheBibliophage I think I saw your review when I shelved it on a Goodreads last night. I'm really enjoying the stories of the sideshow so far! 3mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Daisey Nice! It‘s certainly a unique story. 3mo

My library haul. The electric woman is this month‘s @litsybookclub selection. And I can‘t wait to watch the movie as I loved the book!!

4thhouseontheleft I watched the movie recently, it was good! 4mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @4thhouseontheleft If it‘s anything like the book, I will love it. I am also sure that I will cry as I did when I was reading the book! 4mo
CaramelLunacy I liked the movie, but thought the book was better - just because it pieced together so many other connections 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @CaramelLunacy I haven't watched the movie yet but hoping that I like it. The book is always better. :) 3mo
