Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image
Pickpick

Finally finished Educated. It was on my tbr for awhile, but a friend told me she loved it, so I moved it up. I think I liked the same theme as my friend did—the struggle to be someone different than your family wants you to be and the loss associated with it. At one point, I was willing Tara to go to therapy, glad she finally did. I thought it was weird that her father watched tv, even if it was old shows, yet couldn‘t go to church w/ out 👇

Scochrane26 Condemning women for wearing normal clothes. And I would have liked to know more about how Tara learned cultural norms of school in enough time the first semester to get all a‘s. That was a little sketchy, IMO. Her relationship w/ Tyler was a strong point. #wintergames #thefilthyanimals #TBRread @Clwojick @StayCurious 29m

The Testaments | Margaret Atwood

This was a worthy sequel to The Handmaid‘s Tale. I think your opinion on this book will greatly depend on what you think about the narrative choices Atwood makes which differ from from the first book. I also wonder how much Atwood was inspired by the TV adaption (and vice versa) in the expansion of the world of Gilead and beyond in this book. The narration of the audiobook is fantastic with 3 different main narrators and cameos by Atwood herself.

A story about Benedikt, and his two companions Leo, the dog, and Knasken, the sheep. Their Christmas tradition is to head for the mountains and look for lost sheep and get them home before Christmas. There‘s a lot of descriptions of the nature and the places the companions stay.

In the afterword it say that the story is based on true events.

This is an excellent book. The author finds that his Grandfather played Secret Santa during the Great depression, 1933. He advertised in the Canton, OH paper under an alias inviting people to write to him as to their wishes. He handed out $150 in increments of $5 to those he deemed worthy. The letters will touch your heart. This is a book worth reading.

Let me start off by saying I knew what I was getting into with the description and having listened to Meghan March books before, however WOW! This book was an adventure from start to finish, it kept my interest and was quick. I have to say while her books have a certain subject matter, the plots are really good and thought out. This end on a cliffhanger and now I want to read the next one.

I had a harder time getting into the Sea of Monsters, compared to the first book, and didn‘t like it quite as much as The Lightning Thief. The second half was excellent though, and I breezed through to the end!

This book was...odder than I expected. Most of it was one or the other getting beat up or the butt of a joke. The end just seemed....anticlimactic to me after all that. But it does cover 2 bingo squares (gift given and scrooge type character)
