This book was so much more than I expected it to be. I wanted something light and it did make me laugh. But, it‘s about decisions and regrets and things you wish, as a parent or a child, you‘d done better. It‘s about family and how you love them and how they annoy the hell out of you. It‘s about figuring out who you are and finding love and knowing that it‘s all gonna be OK. I was really touched by this book.

This book makes me really appreciate the friend who recommended it. Homegoing is beautiful: it breaks your heart, makes you think, takes your breath away.

Shadowplay | Joseph O'Connor

Shadowplay is a lovely, engaging work of historical fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed it and spent a little time learning more about Ellen Terry, Bram Stoker, and Henry Irving and their time at the Lyceum. My eyes popped when I found this picture of Irving…inspiration for Dracula? Ya think?!

Finally got around to reading this book and loved it. It has stayed on my mind. Terribly sad, but a fascinating account of a period of which I had only surface knowledge.
