I‘ve got a lot of books going at the moment! I finished my #LPMBC for the month, so I‘m free to jump into the MANY books that came in from the library all at the same time. 🥹

Damnation Spring | Ash Davidson

This is one of those books that leaves you feeling like you've been somewhere. I have been in this town, driven these windy, washed-out roads along the cliffs, sloshed through creeks and looked upon a ridge filled with redwoods. I've mourned their losses and worried along with these people. #LMPBC Round 14, Group B

I really like Emily Henry‘s books. This #ARC is awkward to read on my iPad because I can‘t adjust the font size so I‘m having to pinch it out and back in again, BUT — that‘s a small price to pay to read this goodie. ⭐️📚

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/

That Summer: A Novel | Jennifer Weiner
post image
Pickpick

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.

vlwelser I'm even more excited to dive into this one now. Great review! 1y

The Overstory | Richard Powers

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.“

SamAnne Oh wow! I will keep a look out for that series! 1y
