Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. Here is what I have been up to this last week.
A Happy Tail!
Rover was adopted this week and went to his fur-ever home! I am so happy for him. I will miss that goofball.
WHAT I WATCHED
I found this series very interesting. I don’t struggle with clutter but I do like to organize and get rid of stuff. Her theory of keeping only things that Spark Joy inspired me to focus on things and memories that are the most important.
This is taking me awhile to get through but it is enjoyable.
I have read this book and seen the movie but I just love Louisa, the main character so much that I decided to listen to the audiobook on my commute to work.
WHAT I READ THIS WEEK
I liked this book because it dealt with a topic I haven’t seen a lot. The main character’s mom is suffering and dying of MS. She has asked her son to help her die with dignity. The author did a great job showing the anguish in Bobby’s decision whether or not to help his mom. There were many gut wrenching scenes and my thoughts and opinions changed throughout the book because the author presented both sides of this controversial topic so well.
This was my first Lisa Jewell book and I am now a fan! I loved how the mystery was revealed throughout the story by multiple points of view. The ending wasn’t a big surprise but there was a small enjoyable twist. I will definitely be reading more by this author.
Stacking the Shelves is put on by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. Here are the books I have added to my TBR list this week.
I received this from NetGalley.
When a beloved family dog is stolen, her owner sets out on a life-changing journey through the ruins of our world to bring her back in this fiercely compelling tale of survival, courage, and hope. Perfect for readers of Station Eleven and The Girl With All the Gifts.
My name’s Griz. My childhood wasn’t like yours. I’ve never had friends, and in my whole life I’ve not met enough people to play a game of football.
My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, but we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other, and our dogs.
Then the thief came.
There may be no law left except what you make of it. But if you steal my dog, you can at least expect me to come after you.
Because if we aren’t loyal to the things we love, what’s the point?
This was a free e-book from Tor.com
Not sure I will be able to read this due to the animal cruelty but it isn’t a very long book and the radioactivity story intrigues me.
In the early years of the 20th century, a group of female factory workers in Newark, New Jersey slowly died of radiation poisoning. Around the same time, an Indian elephant was deliberately put to death by electricity in Coney Island.
These are the facts.
Now these two tragedies are intertwined in a dark alternate history of rage, radioactivity, and injustice crying out to be righted. Prepare yourself for a wrenching journey that crosses eras, chronicling histories of cruelty both grand and petty in search of meaning and justice.
The Book Blogger Hop is put on by The Coffee Addicted Writer . There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question.
This weeks prompt is…
Is there anything that drives you bonkers when you’re reading a book and makes you want tell the author a thing or two?
I read a book recently that every other page referenced Harry Potter or Hamilton the Musical. It was so distracting to the story!
