Hey guys! Today is August 31st, and We Love Memoirs Day. Do you guys have any favorites? I believe mine is still I Shall Not Hate, by Izzeldin Abuelaish. It is beautiful and heart breaking. You can get it here. So….
What’s up with me?
For the last week up until yesterday I was basically on radio silence. I had some serious dental issues and ended up going on a leave of absence from work so that I could get it taken care of. Four pulled teeth and antibiotics later, I wasn’t really feeling coherent. I read a lot to work through the pain, and all of my reviews are now up. The removal was Monday and I do feel much better. I have to admit my teeth are bad- I have a fear of dentists irrational as it is. Also, control issues. Seriously, I can’t even get a manicure unless I trust the person because I have issues giving up my hand. I had a really bad/ mean dentist when I was young and I just can’t relax. This one, though, made me very comfortable and I believe we will do well together. Sorry if this is oversharing.
What’s New In News?
Gene Wilder- actor, icon and legend- passed away on the 29th at the age of 83. We all knew his work, I grew up watching him. Through his role as Willy Wonka he was an integral part of many children’s lives. I hate that the world lost this brilliant man, I love that he can now rest easy. Here’s a good article about him.
What’s new in books?
The Reader by Traci Chee comes out on the 13th. If you haven’t heard about it, my review is here. Honestly, I just loved it! I can’t wait to see what others think of it.
Well, that’s it for now loves. What’s new with you?
