Reading Mary Oliver is always a bit like coming home. My favorite thing about this was rereading the six essays in this that were reprinted from Winter Hours. I found rereading them in a different context fascinating. They took on a very slightly different cast surrounded by the new theme of this collection, while mostly retaining their individual characters, and gave me a lot to think about.

BeeCurious A nice review! 🙂 I have a HB copy of Devotions sitting on my bookshelf and hope to start reading it in April. 20h

One of my favorite reads in quite some time! I restricted myself to reading a year‘s worth of letters a day to try and get a sense of the actual time passing in their 20 year friendship and love affair. The window into the lives and minds of these remarkable women was so special, and the writing itself stunning!

In the 4th installment Murderbot meets back up with its original crew and continues to question the nature of its existence. I‘ve been loving these as novellas, and I think this is the last short installment, so we‘ll see if I like the story as much in long form going forward…

Bookwomble I ordered this one yesterday; hope to have it by Wednesday 😊🤖 5d

This did a great job of showing the ways Van Gogh and Gauguin were able to inspire, influence, learn from, teach, and compete with each other during the 9 weeks they lived together, and how it changed and informed each of their work during that period and also going forward. This interplay between artists is something I‘ve always been fascinated by, so I loved reading about this! BUT I found the writing style challenging. 👇🏼

IndoorDame It seemed at times to be narrative nonfiction, and at times to be academic writing without clear transitions between them. This made it hard for me to follow some of the more biographical sections, especially the last few chapters where he traces Vincent‘s spiral into cycles of mania and depression. I think I‘d grab another book if I wanted to read more in depth about his self mutilation and his illness. #bookspin 6d

The 3rd installment wasn‘t my favorite to date, but it was definitely a lot of fun! And I found myself marveling that Wells was able to once again draw me in and get me immediately invested in a new cast of characters while still advancing Murderbot‘s main storyline all in the span of a short novella.

IndoorDame @dabbe yes! Though, I grabbed it off the internet not out of my copy of his book this morning and I also saw a version done in dark blues that looked more his style… posted this cause it was easier to read, but I‘m not sure if he drew both or if this has the colors digitally manipulated 🤔 7d

I need help!!

In general my life doesn‘t work smoothly without an audiobook option at all times, but I must have tried almost a dozen different audiobooks over the last few months and switched over to print versions of all of them because I couldn‘t concentrate on the audio for some reason…

Above are some of my favorite audiobooks from the past 5 odd years (my taste is somewhat eclectic). I‘d love recommendations of anything you loved on audio!!

The Talk | Darrin Bell
post image
Pickpick

This opens in 1981 with his white mother giving 6 year old Darrin The Talk, and ends in 2020 with him giving his own 6 year old son The Talk. For a GN, it‘s not a quick read, or an easy one, because the weight of 40 years of processing the ways in which racism and racially motivated behavior affect his life are fatiguing even just to read about. #blackhistorymonth

Sadly I don‘t get to keep this around another week, so I read the last section right after we finished our #sundaybuddyread chat yesterday. I found the way things wrapped up satisfying for the most part, but also predictable for the most part. I‘ll keep the rest of my opinions to myself and see everyone Sunday 💙❤️🩵

Finished this small powerful book during #hyggehour last night. Rice‘s quiet new take on a post apocalyptic scenario in an Anishinaabe community explores the dual threats of reliance on infostructure and technology and what happens when we suddenly loose that, and the menace of the white world constantly encroaching further and how the community can best band together and stay true to their values in the face of that onslaught.

I was reading along with the #JaneAdjacent crew and really enjoying this when I felt the pace start to lag and I got itchy too see what happens. Also I spent yesterday sick in bed not able to concentrate on any of my more taxing reads, sooo… Suffice it to say the pace definitely picks up and this quickly turned into way more of a classic melodrama than I was expecting! A super fun, light read!

IndoorDame Thanks for picking this one @StayCurious I‘ll definitely be checking in to see what the group thinks ❤️ 2w

I love that I wasn‘t the intended audience for this book. It allowed me to really appreciate which pieces hit home because they were completely shared experiences, which resonated deeply from an outsider perspective, and which passed me by because there‘s something in them I still haven‘t seen. #blackhistorymonth
