#MMDBookClub pick for September 2022

Today we are battling too much information in a society changing at lightning speed, with algorithms aimed at shaping our every thought—plus a sense that history offers no resources. The modern solution to our problems is to surround ourselves only with what we know and what brings us instant comfort. Jacobs's answer is the opposite: to be in conversation with, and challenged by, those from the past.

suvata @JamieArc It will definitely change the way I look at old/ancient literature. 7d

#StoryGraph: fiction historical literary video games emotional reflective sad medium-paced
401 pages | first published 2022

In this one-of-a-kind novel, two friends—often in love, but never lovers—come together as creative partners in the world of video game design.

5-stars from me. 😎

#StoryGraph: fiction historical adventurous emotional mysterious medium-paced

This is the fifth book in Chanel Cleeton‘s Perez family saga. Alicia and Isabel's lives intertwine, and the past and present collide, as a mother and daughter are forced to choose between their family's expectations and following their hearts. The entire series was exceptional.

#StoryGraph: fiction literary emotional reflective medium-paced

In the vein of Jesmyn Ward‘s Salvage the Bones and Sue Monk Kidd‘s The Secret Life of Bees, a coming-of-age novel told by almost-eleven-year-old Kenyatta Bernice (KB), as she and her sister try to make sense of their new life with their estranged grandfather in the wake of their father‘s death and their mother‘s disappearance.

All I can say is Elizabeth Zott is a badass and she didn‘t deserve any of the treatment she got. I loved this book. The characters were great and I loved the way Elizabeth came with the names for her dog and especially her daughter. I‘m recommending this to everyone! #77 #BookSpinBingo #17 #BFC22 #MMDBookClub #SRG #JubilantJuly

Since I am originally from Michigan, this story held a lot of meaning and memories for me. But you don‘t have to be familiar with the area to enjoy this amazing young adult mystery.

Eighteen-year-old Daunis has never quite fit in, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. She dreams of a fresh start at college, but when family tragedy strikes, she puts her future on hold.

GondorGirl This book was really phenomenal! 3mo
suvata @GondorGirl I thought it was also. I loved it so much I just sent a copy of it to my granddaughter. 3mo
