Tamra What patience! 3mo
Aleida Thanks! She taught me and it‘s not too bad. I would have the patience to make a half dozen, maybe. Then I‘d be done. 3mo

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

Didn‘t have a pic of the book so this is what you‘re getting. Loved the book, but two things really struck me: How did these people survive their injuries without modern medicine?
How do you get three PhDs in a family that‘s rarely if ever actually homeschooled? I think our bodies are far more resilient than we think. And I think that after going to school for twelve years, kids can‘t wait to be finished and their curiosity is beaten out of them.

Just finished Becoming and Educated. Both were great and although this is very different, I‘m really getting into this. Not an easy read, but I care for these characters.

Two eye-opening books that read in the eighth grade. Terrific books that I would recommend to anyone.

Lcsmcat I remember reading Go Ask Alice in junior high and glorying in being shocked. 7mo
Aleida Yes! @Lcsmcat I think it was one of the reasons that I never tried hard drugs. 7mo
BookBabe Ditto what @Lcsmcat said! 🙊 Just seeing the cover of that book makes me feel queasy. 7mo

Sworn to Silence | Linda Castillo

Really enjoying this thriller. Headed up by a former Amish turned police captain, the small town police department is overwhelmed by the case of a brutal serial killer. Characters are well written and I can‘t help but think this woman would be part of my tribe irl. A lot of fun on a cold night.

Banker's Wife | Cristina Alger

This was an easy, quick read perfect for summer. However, what I liked best about this story is that unlike most thrillers where the wife, girlfriend, daughter dies, all the protagonists survive. The Wife, and the reporter (both main characters and women) solve the crime AND live.

The Power | Jennifer L. Armentrout
post image

Not sure why this isn‘t in the Litsy database so I added the author. An interesting book about women suddenly attaining the power to electrocute others and how this changes and potentially can break down societal norms and power structures including major religions. I wish it delved a bit deeper into the characters‘s thoughts and plans. But it‘s a good ride nonetheless.

Zelma This one is in the Litsy database if you search by author. Just an FYI. 1y
Aleida Thanks. 1y
