this series!! total unexpected enjoyment. I love the world (re)building, and the characters are brilliantly formed. if you like a little zombie/necromancy in your alternate universe, along with strong female characters, this could be the series for you ❤📚

BookFreakOut This is on my list for this year! Yes, the well-formed characters are excellent, and the necromancy with the bells is great! 3y

And Still I Rise | Maya Angelou

I've been inspired by several posts this morning. One of you darlings (@LauraBeth i think?) made a checklist that included picking a non-profit and volunteering your time, and i am grateful and thankful for the wise suggestion. I had a good wallow in despair, and i'm ready for action and forward-thinking. I will stand up for my gender, my heritage, and my sexuality today. i will not let the bigots in this country speak for me.

LauraBeth 😽😽 3y
acc5446 @LauraBeth thank you so much for your post. it sincerely moved me this morning - it was exactly what i needed to read. 3y

So fab. Recommended for anyone who wants behind-the-scenes glimpses into several of the most recent White House residents. The pacing wasn't stellar, and some of the grouping of stories didn't always make sense, but the gossip is top-notch.

LOVING this so far. also, the book has a gilded finish on the page edges - a much nicer touch than deckle edges (which I loathe.)

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I loved the gilded pages too, and the significance comes through after youve read the book, huh?! (Deckle edge is infuriating). This book was fascinating. Loved it! 3y
