Excellent, excellent. Trust me, this is the (ultimately) WWII story you want to read.
Great book, about a young female Dominican immigrant in New York. The audio has an excellent author interview at the end. The book is based on the author‘s mom‘s experience, who thought she was so ordinary and boring. (Anything but!) Also, interesting to see the racial tensions between multiple groups, all while important movements are ongoing (in the 60s). Definitely worth the read.
If you want to know about ale, lagers, IPAs, and beer, (and trust me, you do), esp. in that humorous Fargo tone (sans the murders), this utterly delightful book is for you. Marvelous! Perfect for fall, football, and when you need a lift, such as because you just took the boy to meet his dreams in Spain, with tears and smiles.
Loved so much of this. Why aren‘t we all reading and talking about this book? #empowerment
Super fun romance, so very much to love. Yes, I read it in a day, on the beach. But then, what‘s not to love in a story about a woman who—as a favor to niece—enlists for small town summer Renaissance fair run by a taciturn English Prof, and said prof also just happens to be a swoony pirate with more to him than meets the eye.
Well Met, indeed. Loved!
Just finished directing this play. It was a lovely beast. Super proud.
The absolute best way to bring in the New Year!! 🎉❣️
This is excellent!!!
What do you do as a Director of Shakespeare in Love in your local community theatre? Read this for fun!
A delightful blizzard of strange American and French characters who will absolutely not behave.
This book blew my mind. When I was a quarter in, I thought: ok another Glass Castle and Hillbilly Elegy. But then it became its very own page turner. It grieves me that there can be such willful ignorance and control and violence, and yet, there is. Reading, deep and wide, I.e. educating ourselves, is the only way to truly test the waters and find truth. This book confirms those opinions.
When I read this and other British authors, I wonder if the Brits have done better about not giving over the slow build absolutely brilliant novel. It is a slow build, so wait for it. Kind of like how Fall doesn‘t happen over night, but then builds to a crescendo of falling leaves. It‘s worth it, as I knew it would be.
Wow a history non fiction for #BOTM ❣️🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🎉. Excited about the others too.
I love this book. I‘ve got a growing fascination with Lady Bird going on right now. And boy, is she inspiring me. Who knew? What a woman.
Loved this book so much!
Columbia late 80s, and the choices women and girls make while as Pablo Escobar and guerilla warfare makes its inevitable way toward them. Told with a bit of magical realism, the magic exudes from the voice of Chula as she grows and gains understanding of the events which reordered her life. Also sheds light on political refugees. So glad this well told story is getting the attention it deserves.
For my writer friends, I liked this book more than The War of Art. Some big truths in it. I listened twice. #iwrite good stuff.
What to read when in Paris???
I❤️❤️❤️ Revel books, and this one looks great. The hope of Azure Springs, by a debut author.
