This is how I study for a test on pediatric hypertension, cholesterol control and diabetes....
Booked my hotel room for Austen Book Festival so will be able to do the Lit Crawl for the fist time ever!!! So excited. Anyone else going?
A solid 3.5 stars. Not 4 because it took me over a year to read it. I would start and stop. Maybe if I had read this before some other true crime.....but that being said Capote has a way with words and now I‘ll be reading his other stuff too.....so. It‘s a win! Definitely read this if you want to see the advent of the “true crime” novel.
Loved this book. A quick read with fascinating pictures.
I‘m only a third generation American. My great grandparents came over and made new lives as Americans. There is so much that is easy to forget and to take for granted. This helps to remind me that save for Native Americans we are all the products of immigration. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My new Libby pick. It came up as a Harry Potter alternative so here‘s to escapism!
4 stars. An awesome cozy mystery. These are my go to warm and lovely feelings. It‘s genre book that hits the tropes BUT is a lovely read anyway. Especially for those that love books. And the end had a little bit of twist so that was nice! I‘m hooked and will probably read the 2nd book coming out here shortly!
This was absorbing and easy to read for someone who doesn‘t know a lot about Marilyn Monroe. I will say the author seems to take liberties with thoughts and feelings in people presenting them as facts, but I‘m not a stickler for scholarly authenticity in my pop culture icons. It was very interesting and readable.
Current read. It is so sad and fascinating. It‘s like reading a train wreck.
Book haul from Gramercy Books in Bexley, OH. When I am overwhelmed and stressed bookstores are my happy place and an independent bookstore is even better!!
I really enjoyed this book. It wasn‘t so in depth that it was drudgery but moved along fast enough that I actually finished it two days.
While this was really good, it read a bit like I imagine a Jane Austen novel would read (I have yet to read one). And I‘ve attempted Austen multiple times but have yet to actually finish any of her novels. This one I did finish and will probably keep up with the series.
Before bed tea and a chapter. Pathophysiology lost the good fight....I‘ll study tomorrow:)
Because I just can‘t concentrate on pathophysiology one more minute…
When life, responsibility, and adulting become too much I save my favorites for re-reading and they never disappoint:) Kate is independent, stubborn,and a loner in an Atlanta slowly crumbling from technology back into magical madness. She‘s a broke mercenary who suddenly needs to figure out who killed her Guardian. Madness, mayhem, and snarky smart-assedness ensues.
“....history‘s pivotal themes-getting and keeping power. Whether it is the power of faith or force, the power of ideas or ideology, the power of propaganda or persuasion...”
5 stars!!! I'm in hangover. I'm in shock. I want to sell my house but an RV and head out to hang out with these people! Their stories are heartrending, uplifting, scary, and everything in between. This was a well written book by an author who approached her work with respect and love. I will read this again and probably gift it and rave about it!!
Nora Roberts is my guilty pleasure. This one is really good so far. Alot darker than her usual. The sections are so pretty.
That time!!! Woohoo #botm
I received an arc from net galley in exchange for a fair review. The story of how the beloved Little House books came into being. Very compelling and read like a novel vs dry nonfiction. The author did a particularly fabulous portrayal of Rose Wilder Lane, a difficult person to like on a good day. You not only learn about Laura but a glimpse of the whole family‘s history. A definite must buy for grown up fans!
It came in early!!! I love Libby:) but it throws my tbr off:(
