mine + ours: books #9

MINE: Circe: I feel like this word is cheesy, but I really was dazzled by this book. Ha! It was so beautifully written! I don’t know a ton about Greek Mythology so I wasn’t sure I’d even care about this story, but I was totally enthralled by it. And my friends who do know a lot about it said it stayed true to all the stories and characters, so I felt like I learned a lot about the subject too! I listened to it and was obsessed with the narrator, but there are pros to reading it. Right off the … Read more

April was a GOOD reading month for me. I had lots of travel time and the book picks were all excellent so I cruised through!

February Book Picks reviewed! MINE: I read Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. This is my FIRST Picoult book I’ve ever read. Holy cow. It was beautiful. I was breathless several times. Got chills several times. The story is so well done and it’s an amazing audio production, too. All about racism and redemption and equity over equality. I absolutely loved it. 4 stars, easy. The language is tough, but only in the white supremacist’s chapters. It’s already in development to be a movie so hurry and read it before you can’t unsee the actors in your mind.  OURS: Hayes … Read more
