The story of a man, who starts his life as a slave. The Underground Railroad. Remembering the past. And maybe a little magic.
A brother and sister, their bond, the house they grew up in, and what happens when they don‘t live there anymore.
I really liked the first few short stories. Roth is great at adding technology or magic to the existing world. But the last two stories were set in the carve the mark world, which I did not care for.
Not the book I thought I was going to read. A murder case. Harper lee covered it. Talks about her life, her friendships. And what may have happened to this story.
This was a book club book, but I was excited. Nonfiction about women who worked for the English government before d-day and after. It was strangle familiar, I think because I read a another book about the same people (code name: lise).
Another audiobook for me. This one was recollections and histories of children during ww2. Specifically in Russia and areas under Russian rule. Some stories were very short, others longer. Some more terrible then others, in terms of things witnessed. Though they were told by older folks, they were memories of childhood.
I did this as an audiobook. It was pretty quick, a talk she has given before. Powerful and meaningful.
Nonfiction about the mosquito, how it can spread disease, and how it has altered the course of human history.
This book was amazing. Wow. Timelines and alternative histories. Great characters. I loved this one. Crouch rocks at sci-fi.
I love books about three sisters. And also historical fiction. And also books about witches. So this was right up my alley. I also love how much the name of the author sounds like a witch name too.
I have been reading this book in fits and starts literally since the day after it came out. I love pierce brown, but he writes a dense book. This was was huge, with wall to wall action and fighting. It took me a while to get back into the universe, characters, and action. But once I did I was all in.
I love Ben folds. I went into this book excited. And it was totally worth it. I did it as an audiobook and Ben reads and also plays piano and even sings sometimes.
Non fiction about a bootlegger, his wife, corruption, and murder. I didn‘t already know the facts of this very old case, so I enjoyed being surprised by what happened.
