Sly little reference on the new Queer Eye reboot!
This book is 💯
I can identify with the subject of this book
First book of the year! Off to a good start 👍
I just feel so "meh" about this. Is that bad? A coworker lent it to me so I could see what all the fuss is about, but I just don't count it as an official story of the HP universe
"..the only thing that 100 percent of rapes have in common is a rapist. You can shroud women from head to toe, forbid them alcohol, imprison them in their homes- and there will still be rape."
These books can take me a while to get sucked into, but once they do.. Damn this is good.
I blew through the first half of this book, hit a wall and then didn't pick it up for several weeks. I was skeptical about being able to get back into it. It's hard to judge a book as a whole when you take such a long break. But I finished the last half in one night and ended up thoroughly enjoying it! Loved the setting and the character development. I read a lot of WW2 books, it seems, and they tend to be plot heavy. This book was a nice change!
I tried to savor this book as slowly as I could. Terry Tempest Williams is so inspiring! I ran out of tabs marking my favorite passages in this book, and it ends with the greatest quote by her friend Doug Peacock: "We lose nothing by loving." Will be rereading this book many more times!
Best birthday gift ever! Combining my love of books and national park nerdiness!
Got my signed copy today! I went to an event last night where Terry Tempest Williams read excerpts from this book and the National Parks (a Utah band) played songs in between. She's such a lovely human! So glad to live in the same state as her!
A cookbook that I'm finding myself reading like a bookbook! Teigan has a cute sense of humor
So far a very tragic, but beautifully written memoir. Klebold's grief is almost tangible #botm
This book, this book, this book.. I felt as though TTW was translating so many of my own emotions into verse. If a book can be a soulmate, When Women Were Birds is mine. Thank you, Terry Tempest Williams.
You had me at "imagine if Jane Austen got angry." Feels good to get back into this series
