One of the best books I've read this year!!! With lessons on finding your voice, being yourself, activism, and that there are two sides to every story. I loved this book and think that it should be required reading.

My Interpretation:

Miserable and mediocre women living lives in transition making questionable decisions and not happy with themselves or their situations. The quote that seems to sum all the stories up for me was, "It's ridiculous this waiting for something else, when this is all there is." I think these stories were a tough read because the actions, emotions, and lives of these women were not only average but entirely real life.

Does anyone else keep a reading journal? And if so what all do you include? I started one this year and I've just been adding quotes and passages that I find thought provoking or hit my feels... Just looking for some ideas

Tanner That's what I do, too. 3y
Bindrosbookshelf I listened to the audiobook of Tiny Beautiful Things and it was amazing! I started using Bookout app to track my reading, mainly pages read per day and now I save my quotes for each book there, but I do have a journal I record each book and some thoughts, why I picked it up in the first place etc 3y

On Living | Kerry Egan
post image
Pickpick



I'm going to describe On Living as a book written by a hospice worker that shares the secrets, wisdoms, and regrets of the dying. Mrs. Egan does a terrific job of inspiring, and takes what seemingly would be a tear filled subject and turns it in to a thoughtful little book of lessons and insight. I Loved it!

As a serious athlete in high school I can really relate to young Ms. Devon Knox in some ways. When you are dedicated to a sport it seems as if the rest of the world falls away. I loved how this book kept me guessing, I def didn't expect it to end the way it did. There were a couple of issues I had with the ending but I would still recommend this book to everyone.

Terry Tempest Williams stands at the top of a mountain screaming to my soul while I rest in the valley listening intently to every word. The Hour of the Land celebrates our national parks while attempting to define what they mean to us, all while dredging up hard but cold truths. She is showing her soul, not begging us to care, but instead showing us how much she does.
I adored this book and meditated on several passages. Protect our wilderness!

This book is getting me into this mindset... A nature lovers perfect getaway inside the cover, a bit political at times, but its acknowledging the truth of what our National Parks, these wild and untamed places, are truly up against.

The Hike | Drew Magary

Pickpick

I thought that this was like a wizard of Oz type adventure; except instead of a wizard you have a producer and instead of a displacing tornado the main character just saunters off into the woods and onto a nightmare of a path .... Oh and did I mention instead of ToTo you have a talking crab sidekick at one point. Loved this adventure!!!! And the ending👌🏻

This book was very random and took me longer than normal to plow through, I loved the idea of the story but thought the writing was a bit too choppy for my mind to latch on to. I tended to side with Patricia most of the time, because DUH witches RULE! Haha

Dark Matter is a mind altering book. I don't feel that anyone could read this book and not wonder about the paths they have taken in there lives. And what worlds they would have opened the doors too.

BookBoggart Looove this book! I have his wayward pine series. I want to read more by him. Alas it is very difficult to find him. Without having to order it in. Even then lots of places with it don't deliver kindly to Canada. 😂 3y
