Book o the day: Sparse writing, Natalie says, like haiku. Beautiful writing, post-apocalyptic scene, odd buddy story. xo$ #thedogstars #afterthepandemic #greatbooks

Six Books To Read Now That It's Finally Nice Out

#21 - The Storied Life Of A.J. Fikry Loved this book! One of the best I have read in a long time!

Someone by Alice McDermott. "The story of a Brooklyn-born woman's life - her family, her neighborhood, her daily trials and triumphs - from childhood to old age." -The Publisher

This book is so intimate and well written - I loved every word! The similarities brought back vivid memories of my own mother, our life as a family, as mother/daugher, her relationships with others, her last year(s) living with cancer and our shared love of the written word. I will never tire of reading or hearing others stories - it reminds me of how intertwined we all are, woven from the same breath and loved by the same Creator.

Unless: A Novel by Carol Shields - I wept on a plane reading this. I want to read it again but now that I am a mother I may not make it through. Beautiful book. --- I'll have to read it.
