Starting this today. I‘ve been reading “The Lincoln Highway” and though I like it, it‘s been slow going for whatever reason and I need something to jump into.
Sitting outside on my deck in hundred degree plus heat with a fan pointed directly at me. Beginning this book while I watch the hummingbirds dive bomb each other.
I haven‘t been on much so I don‘t know if this topic has already come up. I joined this new book group #Literati that seems to get its inspiration from #BOMC a little bit. The premise is neat, different book influencers choose a book each month & you can have it shipped to you or buy it on your own & participate in the conversation w/ the book group online. I joined Elin Hilderbrand‘s but you can switch each month. https://literati.com/book-clubs/

THIS is my favorite Jennifer Weiner book. There are important topics tackled in this story about two Dianas - rape, family dynamics, homosexuality, teenage angst & more. There is Diana A, or "Daisy" as her husband has renamed her; & Diana B, whose identity has also been taken away but in a very different way. Both Daisys' inner voices becomes louder & by the end they are able to speak up for themselves, for teenaged daughters & for friends.
I haven't read this book yet, but I want to and this series sounds great!
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss brought to life some towering creatures when they adapted “Game of Thrones” for HBO, but now they‘re tackling some real giants. Their new project is adapting Richard Powers‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “The Overstory,” about the fundamental role that trees play on planet Earth.“

I am excited for the tagged book, which is not in my usual choice profile, which I'll be receiving from the February First Editions Club.

My #goals for Christmas Day - read the first chapter of each one of these beauties. #TBR #merrychristmas #bookstagram #bustedinnewyork #jaws #littledarlings #thebookofeating #worldofwonders #barbariandays #wellnesswitch #thebirdway #thepullofthestars #theonceandfuturewitches
I‘m having a very hard time getting a picture to post. Also, I don‘t have the Litsy handle for my gift-giver, but thank you! When I opened the box, I put the tissue wrapped things in a gift bag and stuck them under the tree so I don‘t have the box any longer and the card doesn‘t have the Litsy handle. Sorry! But I love it!
Just used up my credits on Audible.com. I always struggle with what to pick! For some reason, it feel like a heavier decision than jumping into a read-with-your-eyes book.

🍏 My iPad. I use it more than my phone! I use it for news, reading, audiobooks, music, gaming, etc.
⭐️ I would go back to the year 1876. I have two sets of 3x great-grandparents that have brick walls/mysteries and if I could be present or talk to them, I could get answers and made big strides in my family tree!
