SisterMaryDandelion
Lit: A Memoir | Mary Karr

When you‘re in my place, you‘re gonna pick up some kid‘s check. The idea that Walt was deranged enough to envision me in the position to buy somebody lunch was maybe a bigger vote of confidence than the adoption offer.

Cherry | Mary Karr

Psychoanalytic theory would label this pecker envy and seek to smack me on the nose for it. To that I‘d say, o please. Of actual johnsons I had little awareness. What I coveted was privilege.

I‘d come to have all the symptoms of a major depression— loss of sleep, appetite and libido, uncontrollable weeping, chronic backaches and stomachaches, alienation and despair, trouble concentrating on work, inability to even get upset that the Republicans had just stolen a presidential election… it went on and on.

Can you remember a time when pop culture was so white that Jaclyn Smith was the chocolate?

Coming Clean | Kimberly Rae Miller

I need more recommendations for memoirs. Some of them are required to be funny, at least partly. This one was sort of heavy.

Perilous Undertaking | Deanna Raybourn
Pickpick

I do love a well-researched period mystery with a spunky female detective. Deanna Raybourn is a meticulous researcher and this second installment of the Veronica Speedwell franchise does not disappoint. I found myself Googling all sorts of details and watching a YouTube video tutorial of Victorian era hairstyles.

deniselynn I'm reading Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily series & was just wondering about this very thing!! 😄😄 3y

Personally, I was quite taken with the notion. No one had ever suggested to me before that I might be wild. It seemed something to which one might aspire.

ALEX DIDN‘T LOOK excited about having to dazzle us. She rose, tugging at her sweater-vest, then scanned the crowd as if challenging each and every warrior to a duel. “Alex, son of Loki!” Helgi began. “Daughter,” Alex corrected him. “Unless I tell you otherwise, it‘s daughter.”

The Secret Wisdom of the Earth | Christopher Scotton

This was an amazing coming of age story. The chatacters were well drawn, believably flawed, and the author treated Appalachian culture and the complexity of the Post-Coal economy with due respect and reverence.
