Want a book on race, representation and Hollywood or are considering a new exercise routine
I recently read "In Five Years" by Rebecca Serle and I loved it. In the beginning I was worried it was headed in the "Something Borrowed" territory, but I was so glad it didn't. By the end I was sobbing and grateful for my best friend.
I loved Interior Chinatown, even if I had to reread a few paragraphs every once in a while to make sure I understood what was happening. I recently saw The Secret to Superhuman Strength in my local library, so I'll definitely check it out!
I read ‘Interior Chinatown’ earlier this year and enjoyed it. Good rec! Speak looks really interesting. Adding that to my list. Thanks!
I'm looking forward to reading Because Venus Crossed an Alpine Violet on the Day that I Was Born by Mona Høvring, translated from the Norwegian by Kari Dickson and Rachel Rankin. Pretty sure it's the most unique (and longest) title I've ever seen.
Just finished The Vixen. Growing up in the1950's & 60's, I was fascinated by the McCarthy hearings and the Rosenbergs' trial. This is the setting of this non-fiction book.
The Katherine Hepburn book is not about Out of Africa, a movie in which Hepburn was not cast, but about the 1951 movie African Queen. I haven’t watched it since I was a child in the 80s, so I’m not sure how it holds up, but it was one of the Hepburn movies my Silent Gen mom made sure I watched.
I am reading Libby Klein's mystery series Murder Is... ( am on the third book), a biography of Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), and Their Eyes Were Watching God.
I have recently finished “ Velvet Was The Night” by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and it was great! I love her take on historical fiction and I always learning new information about history from her books.
I have a hard time finding new graphic novels with themes that interest me, so thanks for mentioning the Bechdel book. Looks perfect!
I finished reading "Circe" by Madeline Miller a few weeks ago and I loved it so much! I had no idea what to expect but it blew me away. It really made me think about The Odyssey in a different way (which I also recently read - Emily Wilson's translation is so good!).
I just received The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina and I can't wait to dive in.
