Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King, Owen King
blurb

Curious George | H. A. Rey, Margret Rey

A fantastic study of the effect of Stockholm Syndrome on African wild life. Perfectly worded, so that even the youngest aspiring psychologist has full clinical understanding of the trauma that precedes the condition.

My husband wanted to know which part of waking up a woman and that causing her to be violent was fictional. Smartass

Waiting on new brakes, because having a car is much better when it‘s able to stop. Also my sweater matches my book.

Suet624 My brakes failed once. Frightening! Fortunately I was in a parking lot. 👍🏼 1mo
Echo @Suet624 that is still pretty terrifying! Hate that happened to you! 1mo

Halloween read with the pupper

blurb

Let's talk about self-aware book characters. I first stumbled upon this particular part of my wheelhouse with Jasper Fforde and I haven‘t found anything quite up to the speed of Thursday Next until this book. I love a good character that knows they‘re a character. Is there anything else along these lines that I can delve into? How do you feel about characters that know they‘re characters?

From the description this will be Fforde-esque and I am totally down for self aware fictional characters.

As someone working in the medical field, I‘d like to point out how totally fucked up the OD scene is. But I do like the phrase “jumped off the cap of a pillbox”. Literally treating ODs like a plumbing issue freaks me out a bit, but at the same time, I GET IT. Which is a horrifying thing to say about yourself. Thanks Bradbury. I‘m confirmed fucked up.

My favorite reference to the book in pop culture has to be this song. This song was my jam long before I read the book.

I love this book. I‘ve taken a while to read it because it is one of those books that needs to be absorbed. It‘s beautiful, well written, and endearing. You need to read this book and take the time to savor it.

TracyReadsBooks I have this book in my TBR pile—sounds like I should move it closer to the top! 3mo

Middlesex: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides

People were falling in love, getting married, going to drug rehab, learning how to ice skate, getting bifocals, studying for exams, trying on clothes, getting their hair cut, and getting born. And in some of those houses people were getting old and sick and were dying, leaving others to grieve. It was happening all the time, unnoticed, and it was the thing that really mattered.

Suet624 This reminded me of how much I liked this book. Thank you!

“Posthumously declassified” is my new favorite thing to call what my family likes to do a funerals.

“... suffering the the anxiety that modern conveniences would induce in her over the years...” perfectly describes my mother.

If you don‘t get a sense of the family being dysfunctional by page 4, you haven‘t been paying attention. The brother isn‘t named as of yet, only referred to as “Chapter Eleven”. 😂😂

I actually pegged the plot pretty early on. But the ending was a twisty ride. Easy read, fast read, good and suspenseful.

Quiet American | Graham Greene

Wouldn‘t we all do better not trying to understand, accepting the fact that no human being will ever understand another, not a wife a husband, a lover a mistress, nor a parent a child? Perhaps that‘s why men have invented God - a being capable of understanding.

Starting this one. One review hinted at meandering and no real plot, another hinted at it falling into several genres. All of these things appeal to me right now.📖📚

Lumberjanes | Shannon Watters, Kat Leyh

I love how inclusive this series is. Magic, badass hardcore lady-types, and an overall feel-good read. This scene is such an easy concept that so many people don't understand. I have asked many of my patients how they would like to be addressed. It's not hard to respect someone in a way that makes them comfortable. Kudos to the LumberJanes for getting it!

I‘m am not far into this and I already am cringing. I have 4 yr old girls (twins) and I can‘t imagine letting them cook for themselves, shoot a gun, or making them bounce around the country. It‘s a true showcase of the parents mental problems and paranoia.

In-laws are pretty much the same across all demographics. I snorted at that last line. This books is a must read. I love how in amongst the heavy age has woven a few lines that can make anyone with a strong-willed, slightly crazy family smile.

Taking a break from the heavier book subjects for a light, fun read. Yeah, I‘m 30. But I was an Usborne Rep and feel in love with world saving yetis. (Just finished The Dovekeepers & also reading A House for Happy Mother‘s)

This was my first Alice Hoffman book. She wove a brilliant tale. Historical fiction isn‘t usually my jam but this one (passed on to me from my mother who loves historical fiction) is quite good.

God made mud.
God got lonesome.
So God said to some of the mud “Sit up!”
“See all I‘ve made,” said God “the hills, the sea, the sky, the stars.”
And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
Lucky me, lucky mud.
I mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.
Nice going, God!

All I need in life. Nelson Mandela endured so much to make sure that South Africans could have the peaceful life that I am enjoying right now. His sacrifices and determination give me hope that there are always good people in the world, even when the US government seems to be in flames constantly.
