Bel Canto still my favorite Patchett. Despite some slow pacing, I enjoyed this.

More than halfway through this series on audio. Its despicable characters are solidly holding my interest.

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline
Mehso-so

Too Manson-like to be unique.

blurb

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline

I read Helter Skelter in the front row of Geometry class sophomore year of high school (1976, if you care to know). It scared me sh$tless because it really happened. And the pictures! Yikes! If The Girls wasn't so reminiscent of this crime/era, I might have reacted differently. Anyone else? 3-stars

"Life a continuous backing away from the edge." Isn't it true? The Girls by Emma Cline

We're All Damaged | Matthew Norman

Who doesn't want a fresh start like shaking an etch-a-sketch screen? Remember those? This book was light, fresh and exactly what I needed. Lots of laugh out loud moments. Some cringeworthy, too. Great on audio. 4-stars!

It turns out I am not a huge e.e. Cummings fan. But I do love me some erotica!

Erotic Poems | e. e. cummings

This one is a little dicey to read at the hair salon. Graphic drawings abound!

Sydsavvy Lol I love e. e. cummings and had no idea about this! I guess the small private Baptist college I went to, no matter how liberal, didn't quite fill me in on all of his works HaHa! 3y
GinaF1003 @Sydsavvy Hahaha! I only discovered this recently as well! I feel more well rounded in e.e. just by reading it! I like his other work better, though I'd definitely recommend it to an e.e. lover. Give it a whirl then let me know what you think. Beware the drawings! 3y
