Some of you know my passion for reading has been sparked like a wildfire! The Library (which is a Cafe/City Livingroom with lattes, kids playing freely, multimedia fun, No Shhh-ing, YA-loving, books haven!) has become a hang-out.
Here are some gems I uncovered:
On Writing: Stephen King
Killer book from excellent writer. I’m so grateful for him sharing this! He used to be an English teacher and truly loves the Craft. Shares a bit about his past, lots of tips and wisdom, and massive encouragement to write, to be brave, to write true, to not be daunted at all if “polite society” is through with you.
Eragon: Christopher Paolini
Holy Smokes! Lovely little tale of fantasy, destiny and the most amazing take on dragons and their relationship with us I’ve ever seen. As I came to the close I realized we weren’t going to make it with the pages left. I’m in for the ride!
Read & Riot – A Pussy Riot Guide to Activism
This book blew my mind. I’ve checked it out a second time. It’s full of deep sh*t. Everything from smiling as an act of Resistance, relevant comparison of RU vs US leadership, exposure of (“Christian”) hypocrisy, and coming of age when focus on self gives way/makes room for fighting for others.
Anything I write about this book may sound trite compared to its raw content. It’s a banger.
