My Lovely Wife | Samantha Downing

I loved this book. The unnamed husband actually had me rooting for him.

A few of the books I bought for my five-year old daughter for Black History Month 2019.

Pretty relevant to what's happening right now in the U.S. and abroad when it comes to asylum seekers. Children specifically. The author spent time as a Spanish-English interpreter for undocumented migrants coming to the U.S. from Central America. This essay is about her experiences.

When you go into a popular book completely blind and realize that the reference to dead literally means "undead." Ahhh. Ok! I've been in a slump (reading nothing but contemporary adult aka chick fiction to get me through) and this cured me. I needed this book and I needed Bahni Turpin's beautiful narration to see me through.

Broke my book buying ban for Black History Month. I purchased five (one on backorder) books by Black American (female) authors.
Books shown: Little Leaders Build Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison, Compound by Monica Mingo, Angry Black Girl by Elexus Jionde, The Perfect Find by Tia Williams

Life on Mars: Poems | Tracy K. Smith
post image

My first poetry read of the year. I'll count this toward my black history month reads. This quote is from the last stanza of part one of the second poem in the book. It's specifically about a rural library... But it's really about the universe. Or perhaps awareness of the universe and how small one man, rallying against the world, truly is. At least that how I took it.

Pretty Girls: A Novel | Karin Slaughter

My first Karin Slaughter. I don't know why I'm choosing a 700 page book when I'm 6 books behind my reading goal for 2017, but I just had to check it out. This book is ummm descriptive to say the least.

I guess I'm in a sci-fi mood. I've started listening to this and reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch today. I'll give them both a good 40 page read/listen, hopefully they are vastly different so that I don't have to put either down.

Kinda gross, very predictable. I'm not sure how I feel so far. I'm 40% through this.

Started journaling again recently. I decided to add a mood tracker to figure out what's annoying me most days. Haha! The answer is usually "everything." Flower petals for the day will be colored as my mood changes and I will journal about that mood... if it's a drastic change in emotion. Saw the design idea on pinterest.

Nute I like this idea. Are you still doing it? Has it helped to figure out somethings? I think journaling is extremely beneficial and rewarding. 4y
Nu20 Nope. I am just way too lazy. 😄 4y

Citizen: An American Lyric | Claudia Rankine

Interesting. Read it if you don't quite understand racial micro- aggressions. She beautifully explains why it's so exhausting for the victims of such behavior and why this kind of racial prejudice can be dangerous.

Started this on Tuesday. I don't love YA and romance is low on my list, yet, I keep doing this to myself. Save me!

Mariposa_Bookworm This one is really good and not your typical YA, I think. Might I also suggest 5y
Nu20 @Mariposa_Bookworm, I've completely forgotten about that book. I heard about it on #booktube a while ago and the cover is gorgeous. 5y

We Were Liars | E. Lockhart

Why?

elkeOriginal I thought this book was the WORST. I do not understand how it became a bestseller and has so many positive reviews. 🤢 5y
Nu20 @elkeo, I was so annoyed throughout the entire book. Even the absurdly short chapters got to me. 5y
BookswithB I agree 5y

Bunch of meh. Found this incredibly boring, filled with characters that I didn't care about at'all and way too much flowery language.

This is the last volume available at my library via overdrive. I guess I'll have to actually go to library soon to do more than renew my card. 😃

Just checked this out. I rarely read books over 500 pages as my attention span won't let me be great. I think I'll attempt to start this next month. Too many great reviews.

BookswithB This is on my tbr as well! 5y

I'm an 80's baby who's heavily influenced by R&B so listening to this is bringing on all da feelz. Learning even more about how "cruel" the industry is.

This was a cute and easy read tailormade for RBG super fans. If you're looking for an in-depth story about her life this isn't the book for you. If you want an intro into her career, beliefs/life and her cases, here you go.

The author has a lot of thoughts crammed into 350 pages. Perhaps this should be two books.
