Thank you @vonnie862 My brain is a little fried from working corporate retail on Black Friday, but I plan to start this when it recovers enough to follow a story. #LMPBC #GroupC @suvata @Bookwormjillk

vonnie862 It's an easy read so no rush in getting started. 4d

Finished this last night for
#round16 #groupC #LMPBC

This was a story Clara Luna who was not happy with her life. One day, she received a letter from her grandmother inviting Clara to stay with her in Mexico for the summer. Being in a small village with little electricity, no plumbing, hearing Mixteco, and her grandmother being a healer would change Clara.

It was a little slow at first but I was engrossed the 2nd half of the book. 4⭐️

Audible brings Deepak Chopra to its members in the form of a podcast titled, Living Outside the Box: Mind Body Zone. There are 12 episodes and I like that I could listen to them in order, back to back. I love Deepak‘s work, so listening to him interact with his guests was a true pleasure. Each session had a guest unique to the topic. This series is well produced, interesting, and thought provoking.#MountTBR

We Are the Light | Matthew Quick

I loved the movie “The Silver Linings Playbook” but never read the novel (or anything by Matthew Quick). This is my first Quick and it pains me to say I‘m underwhelmed. I love writers that choose to portray the ripples from a tragic event in a small town (Russell Banks‘ The Sweet Hereafter is an all-time fave) but I just struggled through this one. I think the epistolary format didn‘t help. Are there other Quicks worth exploring?

Read this if you want to understand the lasting affects that trauma has on people. It‘s incredibly interesting

This is a wonderful book about grief and guilt in the aftermath of a mass shooting. It will make you both laugh and cry. We follow the character of Lucas, who lost his wife to the event, through his letters to his therapist. Quick explores what these seemingly ever more common events do to the survivors of the victims and the family of the perpetrators, as well as the effect on the town as a whole. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 4/5 stars.

Well, this book changed my life. I highly recommend reading and discussing with your therapist.
