Follow my Bookstagram: Grand Rapids Reads
I skimmed a couple books while watching TV: TB12 Method (while watching the Super Bowl), Clanlands (while watching Season 4 of Outlander on Netflix), and Made to Stick (one way to avoid falling for bad ideas is to know how ideas are manufactured to be contagious in the first place).
Loved this book, about barren women who become outlaws in the wild west of the late 1800s. So fun and easy to read.
I read the whole book in one sitting and I completely understand why it’s so popular right now. This book is about Nora who dies in the beginning of the book and is brought to “the midnight library” where she gets to try out all her alternate lives. The life where she made different choices, where she never gave up swimming and became an Olympic athlete, or where she didn’t break up with that boy.
I found it fascinating as a way to look at regret and what we really have control over in life. As stated in the book: “The only way to learn is to live”.
I loved all the Midwest references and recipes. This story follows Eva and her journey with life and food, which was fascinating. A Midwest/more summer-y version of A City Bakers Guide to Country Living. I initially picked it up from a library book sale because the cover is cute but so glad I chose to read it.
