This! This right here is what I have been trying to tell people. People don‘t like the idea of institutions but they do not want to run elbows with mental illness when they walk down the street. ERs and police are not the social support system for mental illness that people think they are. The system is broken and those with mental illness are suffering the most

BookDragonNotWorm I agree completely! It creates a domino like problem down the line - the same people cycling through hospitals and circles of care with in-house psych wings over and over getting a temporary fix for a long term problem. 1w

Spending a super windy fall day curled up in my favorite chair with a book and a cup of coffee. My house is quiet, and I‘ve been reading for three hours straight. This is a rare and beautiful morning.

Free Lunch | Rex Ogle
post image
Pickpick

I‘m in a book club with two teachers so, while this wouldn‘t have been my pick, it was right up their alley. That being said, I LOVED this novel. It broke me up, made me anxious, and I hurt so bad for Rex. It did not reflect my childhood but strongly reflected my husband‘s. And I think bc of that, I felt this story. I highly recommend Free Lunch, especially if you work around children.

marleed I love being challenged by my bookclub. 1w

Wayward Son | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Pickpick

This was for bookclub this month. All of us decided we needed a feel good, easy read, so Rainbow Rowell was our go-to gal. I enjoyed this almost as much as I did the first novel. I breezed through it in two days. Certainly a refreshing read amongst some of my other heavy hitters I‘ve been reading lately.

This book is bound to have a cult following! And if you have a jewelry Etsy shop let me know as soon as you start making bee, key, and sword necklaces!! I listened to the audio of this and it did not disappoint! But how could it, Bahni Turpin narrated part of it.

sprainedbrain Agree wholeheartedly with your review and assessment of the audio, and please let me know if you find a jewelry seller. 😆 3w

Dear Mrs. Bird | A J Pearce
post image

I picked up the tagged book the other day at a free little library. And for some reason instead of immediately shelving it, I left it out. Well it‘s been staring down my wife so she started reading it today and is half way through. Y‘all she‘s not a big reader. This feels like my happy dance!

veritysalter I read Dear Mrs Bird with my book club, we all enjoyed it. Happy reading to you and your wife 📚📚 3w

Oh wow. I was not ready for how much this story would pull me in. I didn‘t want to leave this world, I didn‘t want to leave Alex, so I read the last 100 pages at a snail‘s speed. I‘m relieved and excited to know there will be another book. Bardugo is truly a master!

lele1432 So glad to hear it's a winner! Also, is the snake on your copy embossed? It's beautiful. 😍 3w
Copwithabook @lele1432 yes it‘s embossed! @bookish_wookish gave it to me in a Halloween swap. I‘m so glad I have a beautiful hard copy of this book to hold on to 3w

I enjoyed this so freakin much! It kept me up all night and made me want to call in sick. At the end of the day, I couldn‘t wait to get back to it. Some people may have problems with the science behind this but it‘s called sci-fi for a reason.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Did you read Dark Matter first or does it matter the order??? 3mo

I love reading a passage that isn‘t part of my culture, in a city I have never been to, but something about the order of those words, the feelings they invoke become real. I can feel what the author is reaching for. A memory that is a feeling, but also a smell, a taste. I love when good literature does this.

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane
post image
Pickpick

Ah yes, literary fiction done oh so right! There were sentences in here so perfect that I would pause and reflect on its resonance through my soul (not an exaggeration people!). While there is one main event that drives the book, it is mostly focused on character development. Character driven books can sometimes bore me, however, Keane kept me engaged with her characters. Even the less likable ones.

A friend of mine told me I just had to read this book, and she was right! Westover‘s point of view felt original and new. Her writing style was factual but contemplative, and there were times I actually said wow out loud. Education is obviously what she feels brought her up out of the muck of isolation and abuse. And I can definitely get on board with that. I‘ve already made this a Christmas gift for friends.
