My favorite book of the fall came out this week! 👻💀
Ohhhhhh yes. I can't wait to start this - if you haven't read her book Our Endless Numbered Days, run don't walk. Sooooo good
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO FREAKING MUCH. I love cultural histories that look through a very unique lens, and this book rang all of my bells. I dig the spooky subject, but this book also illuminates so much about American history and culture. All the stars, and bonus stars for featuring the Ridges, which I've visited and felt creeped out by due to all of the reasons mentioned in Chapter Ten: The Stain. Look for this one in October!
I held off on reading this for as long as possible so that I wouldn't have to wait a long time for the next one, but I needed a fun read this week AND DAMMIT I CAVED. Nothing pulls me out of a reading rut like one of V.E. Schwab's novels.
It's so difficult to describe this book as it's just such an incredible reflection on life. Every chapter felt profoundly meaningful to me, despite how different my life is from that of the author. This is a beautiful memoir about family, race, art, and the heartache of growing into adulthood.
I'm in week one of a community reads screening process, and it's so great for catching up on some paperback backlist. This memoir is incredible! It's so difficult to explain what it's about because it's just LIFE written in the most beautiful way. I can't get enough.
Brought some reading to the park today! This is my first Connie Willis, and while the sheer amount of dialogue took some getting used to, I can't stop thinking about these characters. One of my new favorite authors for sure.
Just started this, and I'm already so fascinated. Science + personal narrative is my jam.
Saturday night plans.
