An American Marriage | Tayari Jones

“ I don‘t believe blood makes a family; kin is the circle you create, hands held tight. There is something to shared genetics, but the question is, what exactly is that something? It matters that I didn‘t grow up with a father. It‘s kind of having one leg an inch and a half shorter than the other. You can walk, but there will be a dip.” - Andre “ An American Marriage “

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

So excited to be reading this book. It‘s being compared to “ The Glass Castle” which is one of my all time favorites. Also, I have tomorrow off, sooooo......

ReadingSusan I haven‘t read The Glass Castle but this is my favorite read of 2018 so far. I wouldn‘t say it‘s an easy read but so moving. 2y
Trina_L Yes! I‘ve read great things about this book. Glass castle was the same way, sad but also moving . 2y

Wow! Interesting , very interesting plot twist . The book ended very open ended for me. I went online to see what others were saying after reading this book & in doing so saw that Alice Feeney has a second book coming out called , “ sometimes I kill” I am hoping this has some answers to my questions!

A lot of characters to keep track of, but two interesting main characters that you start to care about. Good plot, the story moved at a good pace . I say it‘s a “ pick” 👍🏻👍🏻

G dammit , her books ! I have a love/hate relationship with Kristin Hannah! Love all of her books , hate that she doesn‘t have a new one for me to read every month . This book was full of Grit, Love , strength , weakness , courage , heartache and heartbreak . I just loved Leni so much and love Kristin even more for introducing me to her. Thanks Kristin for choosing to write as your profession. ❤️❤️❤️

Every time I️ read a book like this , a book about dying , especially written by the person who is dying , I️ wonder why do I️ do this to myself? Why do I️ read such sad books? I️ just finished this book & I️ just wonder where these people get their strength , their bravery from? How are they so strong? I️ read these books to be reminded that I️ am lucky. Rest easy sweet Nina.... ❤️

Does anyone do any type of book journaling ? I️ am going to start and am looking for ideas . What do you include , do you enjoy it , why do you do it? Any feedback is appreciated !

CatLass007 It‘s a great jumping off point for someone new to book journaling. 2y
Trina_L @CatLass007 thank you so much , I️ will try that! Thank you for your input :))) 2y

missevievelyn I‘ve been book journaling for over 10 years! Just finished up my second one this year (one of the moleskine book journals). I think you have to figure out what works for you and what you want to record! The moleskine journal didn‘t actually work well for me because it has a large page for every book and a huge section for quotes, when all I really care about writing down is the author and a couple thoughts. Moving on to just a blank journal next. 2y
Trina_L Thanks so much @missevievelyn ! I️ am looking to add quotes and how I️ felt about the book :) can I️ ask what specifically you love about book journaling? Also, 10 years is really impressive . I️ really wish I️ had started earlier . 2y
missevievelyn @Trina_L sometimes I like to add quotes too! But it‘s too much work to do for everything I read—that‘s why I‘m excited to move to something more flexible. I‘ve been writing down what I read and what I thought since my parents told me I should start, when I was around 10 years old (I‘m 24 now). My favourite thing is definitely being able to look back on all those years of books! Seeing what I thought of books when I was 10/11/12 is pretty funny. 2y

REPollock After loving her first book, I had high hopes for this one. Just finished it and am deeply underwhelmed. 2y
Trina_L Agree. I️ didn‘t read her first book ( I️ do plan on it) it just didn‘t do anything for me. Based on the reviews and the synopsis I️ was expecting WAY more. 2y

Just finished this book. It started off cute, but got incredibly annoying and redundant towards the end... however, the author was very descriptive with Josh, so much so that I started to have a crush on him. 😊
