My TBR is driving me crazy. I‘m talking about books that I already own but haven‘t read yet. I hesitate to even say how many because it‘s an obscene amount. So for the rest of April, I am going to concentrate on 2 books that I have already started, 1 book for #LMPBC, and 6 audiobooks that I purchased on #Chirp. Moving forward, I would like to tackle the #KindleUnlimited books that I‘ve download. Being this disorganized makes my brain itch. 🧠

I think it‘s easy for me to purchase another followed by another because I can‘t actually see the piles of books stacking up in my physical space. Although, I do have physical stacks of books everywhere too (end tables, coffee table, shelves, etc). It is a bit out of control, if I‘m honest. 💕 1w

The Stranger in the Lifeboat is about the flaws of humanity and survival which led to Ordinary Human Failings about a teenage mom and a missing child. Not a great connection between the two after all is said, and done. The next book will be The Night She Disappeared which is also about a teenage mom and a missing person. I think it will be much less of an obscure connection.

3 stars • Ordinary Human Failings delves into the issues of class, trauma, and family secrets. Set in 1990s London, the story revolves around the Greens, a family of Irish immigrants. Their lives are marked by a teenage pregnancy, escalating alcoholism, and a dead child on a London estate. As the police close in on a suspect and tabloids hunt their monster, the family confronts the secrets and silences that have trapped them for generations.

Titanic or Olympic: Which Ship Sank?: The Truth Behind the Conspiracy | Bruce Beveridge, Steve Hall, Art Braunschweiger

Pickpick

• 3 Stars • Most of us are familiar with the story of the sinking of the Titanic. But did you also know there was a “sister ship“ that was nearly identical to the Titanic? She was called the Olympic. And, as they do, conspiracy theorists claim that the previously damaged Olympic was swapped out for the Titanic. ⬇️

suvata Why? Just follow the money and think insurance claims. It‘s a convoluted story, but the authors make some plausible points on both sides of the argument. But ultimately they want you to belief that it was, in fact, the Titanic that sunk. Of course, how can those ‘sworn to secrecy‘ say otherwise? 🤪 This was a very well documented and interesting assessment. 🚢

It took me over a month, but I finally got through it. Very macabre.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American writer of weird and horror fiction, who is known for his creation of what became the Cthulhu Mythos. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors of supernatural horror fiction.

I‘m sure this book is considered controversial in some circles but I thought it was spot on. Of course, my opinion is based on the fact that I raised a son as a single parent, and practiced what the book would call “authoritative parenting.” My son is now a sensible 42-year-old man with two well-adjusted kids and a loving wife. So, when I read a book that affirms my parenting style, what‘s not to like? As they say "the proof is in the pudding." ⬇️

suvata “Bad Therapy: Why the Kids Aren‘t Growing Up” by Abigail Shrier is an investigative work that delves into the mental health industry‘s impact on American children. Shrier argues that the industry is causing harm rather than providing healing. She presents evidence that Gen Z‘s mental health is deteriorating, with rising youth suicide rates and widespread antidepressant prescriptions. ⬇️ 1mo
