So this is my long awaited #bookhaul from the #yycreads book sale yesterday. I had no idea the tagged book or a beautiful mind were books! I‘ve also been recommend to read a house of sand and fog many times but never seem to get around to it. As you can see @TobeyTheScavengerMonk your influence is most definitely coming through 😘

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Greenmantle! Onion Girl! Ooooo Embassytown! I still haven‘t make it around to Widdershins yet, but I‘m gonna. That is one sweet #bookhaul friend! 2y

Jabberwocky @BookishTrish It‘s a memoir ish about life in the rough parts of Siberia/life in its jails. I was intrigued 🤷🏻‍♀️ Glad you are a fan of my other picks! Your opinion is valuable to me! 1y

I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic biography of two extraordinary women, Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller. The persistence and determination of Annie Sullivan was inspiring; their beautiful friendship and how they bonded makes this story such a heartwarming one. The illustrations are beautiful. It's a good light read.

The Life She Was Given | Ellen Marie Wiseman

As always, #EllenMarieWiseman never ceases to amaze me with her flawless writing and #poignant yet #heartwarming story. This moving tale is told from two point of view alternating between Lilly Blackwood in the #1930s and Julia Blackwood in the #1950s.

I felt #ambivalent and conflicted about this book. But overall, it was an #intriguing and #whimsical novel. If you're the reader who likes a lot of descriptions and don't mind the slow pace, you'd enjoy this book a lot more.
