The artwork in Saga is so good!
Beautiful, sunny day to think about making our space more nature friendly. Happy to say our bird feeders are never without activity and our garden is full of healthy bugs. Plan to add some milkweed to the mix soon to feed the butterflies. 🥰 🦋
I‘m still finishing up my last selection from the previous box but as soon as I got this message I started hitting the track button more than was reasonable! My first picks were so good with Gollem Girl being the hidden gem that I would have never found in my own. So excited for new books! 📚 🥰🎉
I loved the rebellious characters so much that I was worried I couldn‘t handle an ending that wasn‘t perfect. Unnecessary, the story did not disappoint.
I really enjoyed this book, her narrative and those of her selected patients are heartwarming.
While still a Pick, it does have a fairytale feel. I can‘t ignore the lack of system or monetary issues facing these characters. No one‘s therapy is rushed for lack of resources or coverage, the problems addressed are not compounded by societal inequalities or need. The experience reads genuine but from a limited class perspective.
One week to get this one under my belt for class. Already feels like a nice change from theoretical articles... #thatPhDlife
I really liked how it was written, the voice and imagery are amazing. Ella's powers felt like a tease but built just enough for understanding. I was unsatisfied by the ending. This may be from lifetime of happy endings and a major issue addressed by the book is the lack of happy endings for people of color in every day America. We'll all need to continue to work for positive changes in the real world, so these stories can become true fantasy.
I‘m starting to get into the suspense but I need to stop reading before bed! I woke up 2 nights dreaming about lava flows with heartburn and last night swore there was something in the house! 😱 🐱 😆

I listened to this on Audiobook, read by Oprah. Her voice is so soothing. There were no major ‘ah-ha‘ light bulb moments but this is exactly what I needed during this time of global chaos - like listening to the encouraging words of your mama.
There were some interesting snippets into Oprah‘s life that I didn‘t know before.
“She got lost in my heart, I think. Couldn‘t find her way out. Your grandma always had a terrible sense of direction.” 🥰
Anyone else buy this on for the title??? (Plus, it‘s on sale on Kindle!)
Are we sure this is fictional history and not a predictive text??? Great on audiobook!
So, my husband transported bodies for a couple years from morgues to the state medical examiners office, sometimes nursing homes, funeral homes, airports, etc. They all drove Grand Caravans and as long as the family wasn‘t involved they wore jeans and T-shirts...
