It’s cold here and getting through the tail end of winter would be hard for me if I didn’t have some good books to read. A few of my choices were in honor of Black History Month.
Read All Day: February
1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.
2. Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We repeat what we don’t repair.
3. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Don’t judge your feelings; notice them. Use them as your map. Don’t be afraid of the truth.
4. Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
And I get up because it is the only thing I can do.
5. The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I’d subliminally determined at this point that the only way to really know what was going on in the world was to listen to women talk. Anyone who ignores the chatter of women is poorer by any measure.
6. The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Dare ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I feel a free that I didn’t feel in long time and when I smile, it climb from inside my stomach and spread itself on my teeths.
7. The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have learned that under certain circumstances, a fib is not only permissible, but can even be an act of perfect grace.
8. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel ⭐️⭐️⭐️
What I mean to say is, the more you remember, the more you’ve lost.
Now, Go. See. Do.
