Went dark for a while. A friend read this in one sitting last night and came in raving about it this morning. Must be good. Adding it to by TBR pile.

Reads like a story in the Enquirer. Easy to read but lacks reference to sources. In the author's note Wolff states that many of the stories herein are an amalgam of multiple sources and that he's made the judgment about what is likely the truth. I still feel that Trump is a horrible leader but I don't need Wolff to tell me that. Trump does it himself in the speech he made to the CIA. Reading his speeches is more painful than listening to them.

Had my friends over to watch the Outlander season finale on Sunday. Let the droughtlander begin. At least I'll have time to read Drums of Autumn before the new season starts.

A friend has been raving about French's Dublin Murder Squad series. Thought I might give it a shot.

Whether or not you agree with her politics, sexism played a significant and terrible role in her defeat.

Listening to this on audio book and I really want Ron Perlman to narrate my life. He would make it sound way cooler than it is. What a great voice!

He does speak some truth only a smoker would understand. 9 months smoke free for me but he's right when he says "Whether I actually smoke or not, my personality is a smoker‘s personality. My story is transfixed by cigarettes, and my body cannot forget what I put it through during those years. The life I led is smoke-screened to such an extent that I have to get very close to even see it. Sometimes it makes my head spin.”

Got sick and had to go to a walk in clinic instead of her book talk at the tpl last night. But @ElvinaGB got me a signed copy. Can't wait to get started!

ElvinaGB I finished it in one sitting. A quick read but so worth it. I love how she ended the story. 2y

The Book of Negroes | Lawrence Hill

This pic came up on my Facebook feed today. A few years ago Lawrence Hill came in to give a book talk to our English classes. He was engaging and thoughtful. The kids loved him and so did the staff. He surprised me by sending me this signed copy of his book. Such a lovely man.

Bakingbookworm Jealous! He's on my 'authors I want to meet' list. I know he's been to Blue Heron Books in Uxbridge in the past. 3y

What a great story. He's a talented story teller. I really enjoyed his accounts of growing up with his mom. His admiration and appreciation of her is obvious The book is about his mother as much as it is about him. The only thing that would have made it better would have been listening to the audio version narrated by Trevor himself.

Wow! She had an awesome sense of humour. My only complaint is that the book was too short. RIP Princess.

I was really loving this book until the end. Without giving anything away, it felt like the resolution was given short shrift. A bit disappointing.

I know I'm not the intended audience. It was a student request. He told me he liked it. Figured that before I buy more of the series I should see how well a video game translates into a novel. Whatever it takes to get boys reading. 🖒
