Personal stories of America's national parks. Curious, but not sure about this one yet. Makes for good doctor's office wait reading anyway. Tick tock. ⌚️

My girls and I cannot get enough of Cozy Classics, and the mini, fuzzy versions of Jane Eyre, Mr. Darcy, and Emma 😍

Walking the Dog | Elizabeth Swados

My favorite book of the summer so far. Weird, dark, bitingly funny and a little fantastical at times. What a read!

AmyWrites I've never heard of this one! Harper looks a little worried about it though. 😃 4y
Christimariea @AmyWrites I liked that the book defied easy categorization...which was true of Elizabeth Swados in general! 4y
AmyWrites Is it magical realism? 4y
AmyWrites I ask because I despise magical realism, fantasy and sci-fi. 😃 4y
Christimariea Oh no, not at all, @AmyWrites. It's a story about a woman trying to build her life after prison. It's horrifying in parts, laugh out loud in others, a mother-daughter story, a social diatribe on the prison system...its just hard to say what it "is." I enjoyed it a lot though. 4y

Park time for girls, grocery planning and coffee for me. Been waiting a long time to get my hands on this one!

Sitting at the park, laughing out loud...wishing I'd read this a year ago when my sister told me I just HAD to get it. Bernadette did not disappoint. 🕶🚢❄️

AmyWrites It is totally a laugh-out-loud book, all the way through. I'm so glad you like it!!! 😘 4y

Such a beautiful and heartbreaking book, and my favorite beach read this week. This may have surpassed "Things Fall Apart" as an Igbo novelist favorite.

When you're recovering and your sister delivers the perfect hospital read. ❤ Funny, irreverent, poignant, and easy to read in fragments of wakefulness 📚
