Yerba Buena by Nina LaCour

I thought this book was a lesbian romance – and it is – but it’s so much more too. It’s the story of two women and the difficult pasts they emerge out of. I really enjoyed how LaCour wove together their processing of that trauma with growing into young women, making questionable choices, finding themselves, and ultimately each other. It’s heavy at times, but also beautiful. I really enjoyed it. Thank you, Tess, for the gift. ❤️

Once Upon a Time I Lived on Mars by Kate Greene

A brief book report.

The Storyteller by Dave Grohl

I checked out Dave Grohl’s new memoir from the San Francisco Public Library as an audiobook after a friend recommended it to me. Broadly, it’s a series of anecdotes from his life, many of which include famous celebrities and musicians.

Dave seems like a really genuine person. Throughout the book he expresses his gratitude for the people who’ve supported him along the way. He’s been through many challenging experiences too, and reflects on them with a positive attitude. I enjoyed his humor and humility, and the pearls of wisdom he’d earned from those experiences.
