I haven‘t posted on Litsy in ages but trying desperately to hit my Goodreads goal of 75 books before the end of the year! I‘m only like...17 books behind now!

This book is fantastic, beautiful, and heartbreaking. This is a piece of history I knew nothing about and it's a story that has so much going on it it - women's history, science, corporate greed, inspiring court battles. And Kate Moore's writing brings these girls to life. Highly recommend.

Mehso-so

I've recently gotten into a Downton Abbey podcast which in turn has gotten me into doing some reading about Edwardian England. This book gets into the nitty gritty about what it was like to be in service and some of the rigid social customs of the time period. The writing isn't very engaging. It's pretty dry. But informative if, like me, you wanted to know the difference between a scullery maid and a parlour maid and things like that.

Guess who's reading a depressing (but really good book) about radium poisoning (spoilers - it's me) (also I'm only like 1/4 of the way so maybe it'll get super happy!)

Training Your Pet Rat | Gerry Bucsis, Barbara Somerville
post image

I saw a video online recently of adorable rat tricks and it made me miss my rats . A couple of years ago I had 2 pet rats, Marlowe and Boas (named after Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe and anthropologist Franz Boas, respectively). They were wonderful little critters. I actually got this book from my mom as a Christmas present but sadly never used it to teach them tricks! Rats make great pets but sadly their lives are too short ☹️

I google image searched "Victorian finishing school" hoping to get an appropriate picture to go along with this book and this was the best thing I found. Though it has nothing to do with the book. But this was an often fun, sometimes scary, sometimes touching romp involving a group of finishing school girls and a brush with the magical/paranormal.

I knew very little about Wonder Woman and her origin story before starting this book. It was a great, exciting adventure with gorgeous art and introduced me to some of my favorite new side character (I ❤Etta Candy). Also baby Alfred Pennyworth is in it! #tbrreadathon

I've just discovered that the movie 'Carol' was filmed in and around Cincinnati. So next time I visit my grandparents, I can make them take me to the restaurant where Carol and Therese ate creamed spinach and poached eggs.

Hallucinations | Oliver Sacks

Bailedbailed

I feel bad bailing on this one, especially since it's an interesting topic, but for some reason could not get into it. I've never read an Oliver Sacks book but always enjoyed his stories on Radiolab. I did this as an audiobook though and could be a case of just having a not-great reader. Maybe I'll try this again later as a book-book.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I'm reading this one today too! 3y
BestOfFates @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Lindseyastin Have you guys read Renae De Liz's Wonder Woman origin story? It's my favorite. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BestOfFates Anothee one to add to the list @NovelGirl82 and @lemonlime799 just told me about this one after I was reading The Rebirth series. I'll definitely check out The Legend of series too now, it looks like it might be the only one with a female writer so that might make a nice perspective. (edited) 3y
Lindseyastin @BestOfFates I def need to check that one out, stat! 3y
iread2much If you get a chance, you should totally read Wonder Woman the Hiketeia; it is one of my favorite comic books and I think it's one of the best Wonder Woman comics period. 3y

Bailedbailed

I feel bad, because this is the second book I've bailed on in a week. I liked playing the Oregon Trail game as a kid. And was intrigued by the premise of this guy trying to make that huge, arduous trek. But I just could not get into it. I feel like there was an hour spent talking about just wheels.

MrBook I feel the same exact way seeing this on the shelf. Thanks for the insight 😊. 4y
