Somehow, this reminds me so much of Alfonso Cuaron's Roma. An equally good one too.

bookladyreads I love this cover too. I'm going to buy it from Book Depository. 3mo
PSreads73 Indeed the best cover for Daisy‘s story. It shows how colorful was the life she lived. I think it‘s also a representation of the 60‘s and of the psychedelic drugs Daisy took. 1w

The best non-fiction I read this year. Felt heart broken for Maggie. Lina's story is so surreal. Highly recommended 👌👍😍♥️

Reggie The whole part about the trial for Maggie made me sooooo angry!!!!! What teacher has any business talking to my daughter (I have no kids) after midnight for 4 hours. Those jurors were stupid. 3mo

Read an interview of the author, where she says she relates to Lina the most. I +1 that. Almost feels surreal to think that she is not a character, rather someone in flesh and blood.

Who do you relate to the most among the three?

Branwen Definitely Lina! 3mo

#BlameItOnLitsy hits and misses..
Hits:
Tomie - loved it for the wild, macabre ride
Brazen - Yummy artwork and lovely women, need I ask for more?!
Cabin at the end of the world - Very relevant, in these intolerant times..

Misses:
Vox - too loud but flat
Annihilation - too complex for me, didn't understand much

Which is your favorite story by Poe? I loved "The Cask of Amontillado"
I found "The tell tale heart" to be very modern, and the "Raven" a masterpiece
Great illustrations set the mood wonderfully.
Highly recommended ??

A wonderful book on physical geography, and how its principles influences the geopolitics. What the leaders of nation think and do are influenced by a big mountain, a plain, a desert or an ocean. Reminds us of the Joker, when he says ".. Show the schemers how pathetic their little schemes are.."

Love the book. Started slow, and the violence was distracting. I held on, and .. what a finish! A woman‘s voice in crime writing, in our not so perfect world, never felt more relevant.
Take a bow, Karin 👌🏻❤️👍🏼😻

TheBookKeepers I read The Good Daughter by her, and the violence was intense in that one too. But overall the story was enticing! 2y
