#Aprella #WeRise ?Catch up. ?Maybe I'm tired, but with the whole "We rise... we fall..." lyrics thing I kept thinking of the sun ☀️ and moon.? since they both rise and fall. Nothing like being obvious! ?Here are three books with sun in their title and three with moon in their title--all of which I've read. ???

GatheringBooks nice! well-played! :) 2y
Cinfhen Yes!!! What @GatheringBooks said 😍 2y

Sidney Poitier rose through the motion picture industry to become the first black actor to win the best actor Academy Award and the Screen Actor‘s Guild highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award, for an outstanding career and humanitarian accomplishment. #werise #aprella #tbr

Billypar @emilyhaldi The book in the picture is actually the collected works. It's great for having them all together, though not great for remembering which you've read and which you haven't. 2y
Billypar @Cinfhen I don't know if I read all of the stories in this collection, but I liked what I did read. No shortage of drama. Though if I were recommending where to start, I would say her novel Wiseblood- such a good one. 2y
Mdargusch Sounds like I need to read this. 👍🏼 2y

Meredith3 @Soubhiville 💞💞💞yes! I almost think one of mine is mixed with some other breed because she has some very fuzzy spots, but very different from a normal shorthaired cat 🤔 love her lil fuzz butt anyways 😻 2y

“...In this luminous volume, New York Times bestselling writer Julia Pierpont and artist Manjit Thapp match short, vibrant, and surprising biographies with stunning portraits of secular female “saints”: champions of strength and progress. These women broke ground, broke ceilings, and broke molds...”

I received this book as an #ARC and I am excited to read it. It came to mind for Day 24‘s prompt: #WeRise of #Aprella 🙌🏼 #feminist #celebratewomen

Cinfhen Looks like another one to read with your girls @Reviewsbylola 2y
Jess7 I have ebook arc from #netgalley of this and it looks really good. I doubt I‘ll be able to see the artwork — so the physical book would be better for this one 2y
emilyhaldi Looks like a really cool book!!! 2y
Mdargusch I agree @Cinfhen 💪🏼 2y

Who doesn‘t love a good underdog story! This nonfiction book is about the working class boys at University of Washington who beat all odds to win gold at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. It inspired me to remember what hard work, courage, and dedication can do 💪🏻

keys_on_fire I read this for my local book club and loved it, in fact it got rave reviews from the entire club (a rarity!). Enjoy!! 2y
Cinfhen You REALLY loved this one...it was a little too slow going for me, but I agree ~ very uplifting 2y

Daughter of the Empire | Raymond E. Feist, Janny Wurts
post image

#Aprella #day24 #WeRise I went through a huge fantasy kick as a young adult. Raymond Feists RiftWar Saga is still one of my favourites,this series is a spinoff from that.Set on Kelewan, the world that initiated the RiftWar, it follows Mara, a young woman from the Acoma who finds herself ruling lady after a betrayal causes the murder of her family. A naive girl at the start, she rises to be one of the most formidable political leaders in her world.

JazzFeathers I've always meant to read this series. Must find time to do it 2y
Reviewsbylola Sounds really cool! 2y
