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. ❤️
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.
