I‘m absolutely loving this book so far. It‘s described as a sort of Western meets Mulan which speaks so me on so many levels. Our heroine has such a powerful and unique voice. Can‘t wait to see how this unfolds.

This book is 🔥🔥🔥. Discovered this delightful (and steamy) read while lounging at our Peruvian Amazon lodge. Not a bad way to spend some down time.

A fun, fast freebie on kindle #ebook! Great characters that I‘m looking forward to getting to know more as the series progresses.

I do not remember ever buying this book, but when I was looking through my stack for a beach read I found this. And it was light weight and packable. Win! A little melancholy for the beach, but I‘m enjoying the writing style! #beachread #vacation

hermyknee It‘s not a beach read at all, but it‘s one of my all time favorites ♥️ 9mo

“Maybe that‘s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom is...realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.” — A. Bourdain. **Saddened to hear about the loss of this brilliant human and writer. No Reservations was one of the first biographies I ever read and made me realize that I actually liked bios! Or maybe I just liked Bourdain‘s dry humor. RIP

Informative and beautiful! Not sure if it‘s a book or a work of art. #popupbook

Wearing my kicks while listening to Shoe Dog on #audiobook. Almost done and loving it. I‘m not usually drawn to #nonfiction, but this has kept me completely captivated. #swoosh

Just started this collection of short stories by Tom Hanks. Yes...THAT Tom Hanks. Had the privilege of seeing him speak last night at the #politicsandprose event in DC. So far I'm loving it! #shortstory

Finally getting to my summer reading list! My mom suggested The Diplomat's Daughter after she heard a review on NPR. Happily picked it up at the local Politics & Prose in #DC. So far so good! #summerread

Stunning artwork and non stop action. I only wish I could join Delilah on her next adventure! Great read for anyone who always wanted to see a female Indiana Jones. The only annoying bit is that the story is still from a man's perspective which leaves our female hero somewhat underdeveloped. Hopefully her character will become more well rounded as the series continues. Also rumors of a film adaptation! #graphicnovel

A Walk in the Woods | Bill Bryson

Woke up at our campsite on the Shenandoah river to finish reading Bryson's laugh out loud book. Wonderful mix of adventure, history and environmental commentary that still resonates. I was not disappointed. Just skip over the bear attack chapter when reading aloud around the campfire in the middle of the woods at night!

A Walk in the Woods | Bill Bryson

Finally getting a chance to read this classic! Bill Bryson is one of my favorites. Years ago, my high school English teacher gave me a copy of "I'm a Stranger Here Myself" because she said we had similar (probably sarcastic) writing styles. It changed my view of writing and nonfiction. I didn't know books could be so funny! #billbryson #travelwriting

Absolutely devoured this book. I discovered this heart pounding mystery though @OverDrive and Big Library Read. It's like Downton Abby + Criminal Minds. All of my favorite things.
