Picked this one up at the Hachette Book Club Brunch after listening to Susannah Cahalan's talk. So excited to dive in!

Well, here's a good reminder to make art and not worry about waiting for the right tools.

This delightful little book takes a singular focus of mindfulness and looks at ways that different cultures apply it. It is a perfect introduction to a lot of practices with descriptions and how-tos. A reader can then research any of these ideas further if they want more details and background. The illustrations make this a fun book to flip through and engage with. The Serenity Passport would be a great gift for its beauty and simplicity.

Wow. This is a powerful -- and so very difficult -- story. I couldn't stop reading. Rickardsson's life is much different than anyone else's I've known. I appreciated the candor with which she wrote. We need more stories like these to teach us what we don't know or choose not to see. This book will need to be recommended with plenty of trigger warnings, but it is important and very well written, so proceed. Just do so with caution and gentleness.

Great choice for those looking for a little clarity on your own life from a spiritual (Christian) standpoint. Accessible with plain language, very brief excerpts from the Bible, plenty of conversational advice, and anecdotes from the authors. The writing doesn't come across as directive; rather it feels like an open conversation where you can imagine the authors saying to you, “Tell me more about that (situation/feeling/etc.).“ Thanks #NetGalley!

I love this book! This is one of the easiest-to-understand astrology books I have come across. I love that Robinett uses astrology as a tool, but also relies heavily on intuition when making decisions, even if it "goes against" what her chart says. I plan to buy a copy of this book upon its release. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy.

Empaths need to read this book. It goes beyond telling you how to guard yourself and tackles some of the ideas around enlightenment that can hinder empaths -- for example, that one must be light and positive always. Emotions are a very human experience and we can't always talk our way out of them with affirmations and positive thinking. Rather than guarding against emotions, North offers guidance on how to feel your emotions and work with them.

I like the idea more than the execution. I learned some interesting tidbits about Zora Neale Hurston, but what this book did was make me want to read an actual autobiography about her (which I will now plan to do). The storytelling was choppy, jumping from one time in Hurston's life to another without context or connection.

Meh. I found the story to be interesting and the illustrations not interesting. I get what the author was trying to do, but felt it was done on a subpar level.

Elizabeth Gilbert's writing, as always, is glorious. This is my favorite book by her yet. Main character Vivian takes the reader on quite a ride. Just when you think her story is winding down, the ride swirls around a corner and picks up speed. This is a wonderful story with flawless writing.

William's job was fascinating to me; that aspect carried me through this book. The few chapters that focused on Clare detracted from my overall liking of this book. I didn't feel like her character was as well fleshed out as William's. I appreciate what the author was trying to do by giving both sides of their story, but I think it missed the mark in Clare's case. All in all, this is a good story -- not great, but good.

Diving in. I'm excited for this one because I've been getting back into my own photography, and this is a historical fiction about photographers Lee Miller and Man Ray, whom I know nothing about.

Briget66 Tell me more about the notebook you have in back. Is it what it looks like? A place to write about the books you‘ve read? And to date your reads? 10mo
sherri @Briget66 I pulled out a notebook to track characters in a book I was reading a few months ago. I have trouble keeping them straight when there are many. But I found I enjoyed having a few notes, so I'm trying it out with more of my reading now. This time before starting to read the book, I wrote down what made me choose it. I'm making notes along the way about timeline, characters, and thoughts about the writing. 10mo

I finished this book three days ago and I am still thinking about it. The storytelling is somewhat fragmented, but that matches how the characters' lives are fragmented. I can't decide if this book tries to tell too many stories or if the gravity of all the situations bring a necessary weight to the family. In any case, I liked reading about the various plights of these grown sisters and their loved ones.

Soft Magic. | Upile Chisala

This beautiful poetry collection is about self-love, power, depression, relationships, and understanding. Geared toward women and perhaps teens or young adults of color. The words Chisala chooses are as beautiful as the ideas she expresses. I recommend this book for poetry lovers. I suspect readers of color will find themselves seen and heard on these pages, and white readers can see the need for inclusive and “own voices” writing. #NetGalley

The latest book of poetry by Lang Leav is every bit as wonderful as her previous books. I am a fan of Leav‘s for her ability to make poetry accessible. She once again explores past love with this collection of poems, but she also delves into self-love through poems written to herself. I was able to relate to many of her passages. I have recommended her poetry books in the past, and I wholeheartedly recommend Love Looks Pretty on You. #NetGalley
