    What Are You Reading Part 3

    Continued from here:
  2. Hey, FJ friends, this is a long shot, but maybe someone can help me out here. I am old as dirt, and I am trying to remember the title of a book I read when I was a kid. This was probably around the late 1960s or so. The book was about a friendship between a white girl and the black girl who came to her school during integration. They become friends but have to keep it a secret, so they meet behind the stage for lunch every day, sharing their lunches and just being friends. Of course, the adults find out and there is drama. I think - think - one of the characters was named Sybil? But not really certain on that. A plot point I think I remember is the black girl wants to be a botanist when she grows up. This book was my introduction to race relations and the difficulties the black children faced. I really want to re-read it and see how the story holds up after time. It was a formative book for me. So, if anybody else remembers this book, please let me know? I know it's not much to go on, but I figure if the book made an impression on me, maybe it made an impression on someone else. Y'all are great!

    Summer Reading

    So I've been in a long reading slump. I have so many books I start and just can't get into, But someone gave me the first Outlander book and I was super excited. I've seen clips of the show and it looked like something I would like. Time travel, men in kilts, the struggle between choosing between two different times, all things that appeal to me. But holy fuck. I'm not sure I want to watch the show after reading this, not unless they changed it.
  4. The old thread got too long, so let's start a new one! What are YOU reading now? Anything good? Anything to avoid?

    Recommend a book to me

    I thought I would start a thread where we could tell what kind of books we like to read, and other people can recommend books that are similar that they think we would like. I'll go first. I like cozy, curl-up-under-a-blanket, Jane Austen-type books. Any recommendations?

    Summer Reading

    What are you reading this summer? Some of my recent favorites are: The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen Hendrik is in his eighties and lives in a retirement home. Some of his entries are funny, while others are sad. The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin Tells the story of early Hollywood screen writer, Frances Marion and Mary Pickford. The book was fiction, but I found it fascinating. Arabella of Mars by David Levine Arabella was raised in the Mars Colony until she was sixteen, when her Mother decided she needed to return to England (and Earth) to become a lady. Left poor when her father dies, she poses as a boy to work on an air ship to Mars. This was very readable Science Fiction. I'll add others...

    Thank You For Your Suggestion

    So yesterday I saw a meme on Facebook that made me go hmm. It triggered - or rather confirmed a direction for my writing. My writing has been on hold for a while. For many reasons that I'm going to spare you here. Because that is not the point of this entry. Although the start over in the meme is what I'll probably do with the project that won't go away. That I tried to set aside and, yes, is again nagging at me. And when I shared, I did put a line or two about my writing when I shared the post. Some friends hit like. I appreciate that. Then there is that one friend. The one trying to be, shall we say, overly helpful. She hit like but she also replied that she had gone to a local library and heard a mystery writer talk and had I read her books. I did the virtual version of smile and nod. Or in this case, replied that I had just finished (no, really, yesterday) a book by this author. Did not say that I found the novel adequate but lacking (the concept was good, wanted to smack the protagonist and I just can't love a book where I dislike the protagonist unless you are, say, Patricia Highsmith and we are talking Ripley). So thanks for your... what do I call that? Support? Although that is not support. I know you think it is. Because for me it was a books suggestion from someone who knows I like mystery and suspense but doesn't really 'get' what I really read and enjoy in a book (and I can be very very nit-picky) And while I'm on a ramble about suggestions, can we talk about reading suggestions. You've seen them around the net. Books to read if you loved "Gone Girl" for instance. This is not helpful to me. What I need is suggestions for books to read if I read "Gone Girl" wanted to love "Gone Girl" and found the whole experience a load of hooey and I should have gone with my initial gut reaction and skipped it but didn't because I wanted to see what the big deal was (after the movie came out). And, okay, I may have read it to check out the whole unreliable narrator aspect. By the way, the friend above babbled to me in person about "Girl on the Train" and said, paraphrasing, I had a hard time getting into it but then I did and I figured it out way before the end. This, by the way, was a glowing recommendation. No, really, because it confirmed my suspicions (see all comparisons I had read to Gone Girl) about my not reading the book. I don't want to figure it out long before the ending.
  8. I went to the library today and here is what I got! Today is the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, so I mostly picked out some books by Latino/a authors. I actually wasn't planning ahead for this theme and didn't request any of them, so I just kinda found these by browsing the shelves. From top to bottom: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (DVD) Esperanza Street by Niyati Keni Ways of Going Home by Alejandro Zambra (I think I will read this one first!) My Documents by Alejandro Zambra The Story of My Teeth by Valeria Luiselli The Miracle of Castel di Sangro by Joe McGinniss (my BF requested this one so I picked it up for him lol) What are you reading this month?
