Crying in H Mart: A Memoir | Michelle Zauner

Pickpick

So, I didn't know this book was about a girl's mom dying of Cancer - suuuuper depressing. That said, it's not ALL about her mom dying of Cancer. It's about their bond and culture and the unique ways in which the daughter attempts to keep that alive after her mother's death. It's an honest memoir that reminds us that family dynamics aren't always what they seem and a reminder to enjoy the time we have.

Picked this up on an audible sale and so glad I did. I love to fly so it was great learning more about the history of flight attendants too.

Very excited to receive my October BookPage today!

Can‘t wait to get my hands on the new Kate Atkinson (might need to make a bookstore visit this weekend) and also interested in the Annie Proulx. The dystopian Celeste Ng is a maybe for me. I really liked her debut and mostly liked Little Fires Everywhere.

The tagged graphic memoir is ready for me to pick-up at the library. BookPage gave it a starred review and features a Q&A with Beaton.

Aims42 Ooooo! Can‘t wait to grab my copy from my library this weekend 🤓👻🎃 19h

This book covers so many tough topics, substance abuse and the generational trauma & physical abuse buried behind that. All must be unburied and cleansed on the hard road of recovery, yet it is somehow still so compelling it‘s hard to put down. Knott manages to be open and vulnerable, while also being direct and tough. I‘m very glad she found the way and the will to write this, and that I had the good luck to stumble onto a review and read it.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir | Jeannette Walls

In the amount I have read in this book so far, we have been learning about Jeannettes child hood. How she lived, where she lived, her family dynamics and how she interacts differently with each member of her family. If you like books that are memoirs you would like this one. One theme that is present in The Glass Castle is family poverty, we see this with where they live, how they live and how many times her father switches jobs

MissYaremcio Thanks Ryder! 6/6 2d
