I read three books in March and three books in April. I’m not in the mood for reading lately, which is unusual for me. I hope my mojo returns with the warmth of spring.
Women’s Work: The first 20,000 years by Elizabeth Wayland Barber. This book uses archeological tools to research that women have done throughout the history of humanity – spinning and weaving. If you are a textile nerd this is a great one to pick up. I give this book four out of five stars.
The Fallen Stones by Diana Marcum. You know the expression “you get what you pay for”? That sums up this free book from Kindle First Reads. This book takes us on the adventure Marcum had while researching butterfly farms. This book would be better if it was significantly shorter. It would make a nice essay. I give it two out of five stars.
This Time for Me by Alexandra Billings. This is the story of Alexandra Billings, a trans actress best known from Transparent. Her story is dark. She has lived through some very difficult situations. I’m glad I read the book, but the difficult times she lived through were difficult for me to read. I give this book three out of five stars.
The Nineties by Chuck Klosterman. Oh my gosh I love this book. The history! The humor! I was sad to finish this book. There were so many memoires on the pages. He calls Dave Grohl a cuddly teddy bear! If you are a member of Gen X go read this book. As an aside, I totally had the phone on the cover of the book. I give this book five out of five stars.
Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey. Hollywood PA falls for fisherman. I really enjoy reading romantic comedies. That being said, if you are my friend and you act like someone in a romcom book I will be sitting you down and having a conversation with you about your life choices. I give this book three out of five stars.
Fuzz by Mary Roach. I didn’t know that non-fiction books about animals can be funny. This book is filled with bears that steal food and monkeys running amok. Roach is incredibly funny and I learned a lot from this book. I enjoyed it so much I picked up another book of hers from the library today. I give this book five out of five stars.
