Well after last Monday’s post and being slammed with many library book holds coming in at the same time, I decided to read When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams and I am madly in love with this little book (I had to show both covers). I started with the hardcover from the library and then had to have my own copy so the family did me a solid and picked up one just in time for Mother’s Day. I just don’t know how I am going to review this book that is now an all time favorite. It has gutted me over and over. Although I don’t know Williams or had any type of similar childhood experience, I feel as though she has taken emotions and thoughts out of me and put it down on paper. I am rereading it as I read it. *Sigh*
I finished The Shore by Sara Taylor, which completely blew my mind right off. Discussion is needed. STAT! From the stack I also decided to keep H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald, which I look forward to starting this week. Seems appropriate with birds and all.
