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. 🥰 🦋

Golem Girl: A Memoir | Riva Lehrer

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! 📚 🥰🎉

The Witch of Blackbird Pond | Elizabeth George Speare
Pickpick

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.

tpixie I read this as a child and loved it someday I should maybe read it again- maybe in October! This last October I read witchy books 2y
Lchnessmnstr It‘s so good but I wouldn‘t classify it as witchy, the only monster is ‘civilized‘ society... 2y

Fun read! Maybe if I wasn‘t an only child, I would have more accurately guess the ending? 🤔

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.

Riot Baby | Tochi Onyebuchi
Pickpick

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.

Yes Please | Amy Poehler

The first half, I was kinda disappointed: it was just ok, a lot about motherhood that seemed redundant with other working mom celebrities. The second half, she talks more about her career and Parks and Rec that makes sticking with the book worth it!

While I thoroughly enjoyed this novel of nonsense and tomfuckery, I might as well be under one of Puck‘s spells for my inability to tell you who did what to whom at the end.

Listening to David Sedaris read his stories from 2015 in 2020, I just can‘t help but wonder what he‘s thinking and feeling now... 2015 Sedaric: Trump is running for president?!? Conspiracies about the CDC, seriously?! oh man...

I read it because ‘it‘s on all the lists but atleast it‘s short...‘

OMG It‘s SO good! Left me with the warm and fuzzies and the inspiration to do good things and enjoy the journey along the way. Great adventure without anxiety.

What I Know For Sure | Oprah Winfrey
Mehso-so

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.

This gets the worst rating because it gave me such hope for the first 200+ pages and then went down hill fast. Predictable, generic and unbelievable conclusion that had so much potential. I‘m glad I didn‘t buy it or I‘d want my money back...

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...
