I've had a slew of books on hold for a couple months. It's crazy when they get released around the same time. I like to think my late fees contribute to the library's income.
Of the three pictured, I just finished the Caitlyn Jenner book. Very interesting and enlightening. He was - and she is - such a kind, gentle, compassionate soul. But I still can't wrap my mind around this issue. One thing's for sure, it's a topic to generate hours of great discussion and deep introspection on "who are we, really?"
Jackie's Girl - is written by one of her personal assistants. I love reading about Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Shattered - I've been really looking forward to digging into this one. Originally it was to be the backstory of how Hillary won the White House. But that trajectory kinda changed last November.
pause for :)
Last week I finished Stephen King's 11/22/63 - a time travel story on how the world might have been different if someone went back in time and eliminated Oswald. If anyone ever complains to me that George R.R. Martin labors on & on in his descriptions, I will point them to this book. I'm not usually a skimmer, but I had to skim several pages of this one. The story is really good and picked up the pace near the end.
My other spring/summer reading consisted of:
- Rising Star - about Obama's rise thru the ranks.
- I'll Be Damned - Actor on The Young & Restless - Eric Braeden's auto-bio. It was so-so.
- The Ascension Mysteries - mystical/spiritual insights by David Wilcox. Actually quite interesting!
- The Fate of the Tearling - totally fun fiction. This is the 3rd in a trilogy by Erika Johansen. If you enjoy fantasy stories, try this series.
- JFK & the Reagan Revolution - super good info here, if you can wade through it, on economic history. Sadly, I could not wade through it. It was skimming only. But if you're a financial nerd of sorts, you'll find this informative.
Still to come:
- A Little Thing Called Life - Linda Thompson, on her life with Elvis & Bruce Jenner (can you imagine?!)
- Drain the Swamp - subtitle is "How Washington Corruption is Worse Than You Think"
- Origin - another Robert Langdon thriller by Dan Brown
I think I can safely say my reading interests are rather broad!
