Hot cider, donut, and a good book. Ng's writing prowess is such that my heart is aching in anticipation of what comes next as I turn the last few pages. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We Never Asked for Wings: A Novel | Vanessa Diffenbaugh
post image

Mm...London Fog, chocolate croissant and I started two books I can't put down. Why do I do this to myself? The Art of Fielding and We Never Asked for Wings. Vanessa Diffenbaugh's The Language of Flowers hooked me on her writing. Her characters find a spot in my heart. TAofF is a baseball book. It is like getting hit in the head by my childhood.

Erdrich's writing is stirring. Evokes every emotion. I sometimes wonder how I can survive the pain. She walks me through it. I, as well as her characters, come out the other side better people. So much love. Must read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What did y'all think of this book? I was disappointed by the failure of family and counselors. Tell people you love them if you can...

HeatherBookNerd I actually felt like it covered a real range of actual responses to mental illness and the reality that so many do not get help. But the author was great to address that too at the end and made sure to point to options for help. I thought it was great. 3y

Captivating. I felt uneasy. Very good read. Bel Canto-esque. Read this book, y'all.🐒

An act of terrorism in Jerusalem. How does Daniel grieve for his twin brother while caring for his young children. How is a relationship sustained while a man does not allow himself to feel anything? What happens when he finally lets go? I could not put this compelling book down.

#RiotGrams My local library Carnegie Public Library, Escanaba,MI. This building is now closed but is home to many memories of days spent with good books. I never borrowed a book I didn't pay a fine for. My way of supporting my local library. 📚 First grade grand read Brave to me just minutes ago. I wish I could visit the Bodleian Library in Oxford, please.

MrBook Nice! Awesome building. #LitsyLovesLibraries 3y
