Today I mourn for someone that had a profound impact on my life. A couple of years ago I picked up “Searching for Sunday: loving, leaving, and finding the church” it was exactly what I needed at that time. Rachel Held Evans your impact has been great and will continue on, but for now I sit heart broken for your family. Thank you for your words, your influence, and your assurance that I am not alone in all my questions and doubts

This morning I picked up a book that has been hanging out on my unread shelf for too long. The story caught my attention from page 1 and I love the cover (minus the annoying Bookclub label, but I guess that label does help sales) #weekendreads

Stranger Diaries | Elly Griffiths
post image

When visiting one of my favorite indie bookstores #murderbythebook the bookseller pressed this into my hands and assured me I would love it. Spot on. It hit all the gothic mystery elements that I love. An old school, a book intertwined with a book, a diary. I hope to read more of Elly Griffiths very soon.

JackOBotts Sounds like a great read! 1mo

I Miss You When I Blink: Essays | Mary Laura Philpott
post image
Pickpick

I want to put this book on every woman‘s radar. It is a collection of essays in memoir style telling very honest and heartfelt stories from the authors life. The writing is hilarious and moving. Some of the essays were like a window into my inner thoughts and all of them made me want to march myself up to Mary Laura and tell her that she has to be my BFF. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

BekahPat “...life will surprise you. You‘ll hit dead ends & detours. There will be times when you can‘t fathom what comes next. When that happens, remember yourself as you are right now. Remember yourself as you were when you were even younger. Who were you when you weren‘t wondering who you were.” 2mo

Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver
post image

This is my first ever Barbara Kingsolver novel but will not be my last. Her writing is absolutely beautiful. Kingsolver does not shy away from big issues in this novel, Life/ death, the environment/ climate change, science / religion, healthcare, the current political climate. I can see this novel not being for everyone, but it was for me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Such a cheesy cover, such a cheesy title, but actually a very enjoyable story. I chose this read to satisfy my hallmark movie yearning for the season. I am glad I picked it up. I am interested in the characters and it is set in Scotland so that is definitely a win.

Waiting for Eden: A novel | Elliot Ackerman
post image

Waiting for Eden by Elliot Ackerman shook me to the core. I will be thinking of this story and the questions that it poses as you read for a very long time. Eden is a war hero and a lone survivor, but not really a survivor. He exists. Mary is his wife. Andy is the daughter that never met her father. Their story is told by Eden‘s friend who did not survive. It is beautifully written, and uniquely told.

Texreader If you are a Harry Potter fan then Universal Studios in Florida. I loved the bookstores (the Strand) and million other things to do in NYC. But my fave is the Jamestown, Virginia area for all the amazing history. 6mo

Fiona Davis is one of the most delightful and talented souls I have ever encountered. Through her writing I have experienced the Barbazon Hotel for Women, the Dakota, and now grand central station. Her books are so well researched and full of interesting facts, they will hook you with the mystery and the plot twists. 5 stars.

“there were these individual moments that I could still appreciate. Like drinking that first cup of coffee in the morning. Working on something fine in my workshop. Watching a baseball game on TV.” She thought that over. “But…” she said. He waited. “But…is that enough?” she asked him. “Well, yes, it turns out that it is,” he said.
This is my first Anne Tyler, and I found it to be delightful. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My eyes glistened with tears at just the first few pages. I am not sure if it was the note from the author or the opening scene that brought me to tears. Maybe it is because Willa‘s father shares the name of my own father.

Bostonmomx2 😡 I get so annoyed when @litsy doesn‘t have a book synopsis attached to the title. What‘s this about? 10mo
Samplergal Too new? Love ❤️Anne Tyler. 10mo
BekahPat @Bostonmomx2 it is a character driven novel focusing on the life of Willa Drake. The reader sees her life through scenes set when she is 11, 21, 41, and the last half of the book takes place when she is 61. So we get to know her quite well through childhood parent issues, to engagement, to being a widow, and ultimately as she desires to be a grandmother. This is my first Anne Tyler. 10mo

KateFulfordAuthor If you like Maggie‘s style, perhaps you could consider my debut? Reviews are saying: “I loved this book more than I initially thought I would. Fulford infuses her characters with intense personalities that are prone to clashing with those of others. I loved Eve from the very beginning..."
