I was worried that Alix Harrow's second book wouldn't be as good as her first... boy was I wrong! I LOVED this book on witches and women and suffragettes and would love to see witty, tender writing like this in my inbox! #MSWL
How to Do Nothing is pretty revolutionary for me... I'm always busy doing something, and this book really helped me slow down and think about WHY. Highly recommend and would love to see something similar in my inbox! #MSWL
I read All You Can Ever Know in one long afternoon and like everyone else, I adored it. It's a wonderful memoir about adoption and race and family and should be required reading for everyone. #MSWL more memoirs like this!
I read A Ghost in the Throat on one sitting on New Year's Day and it dazzled me. It was literary and lyrical, about motherhood and the forgotten women of history and it's one of the best books I've ever read. Please send me literary fiction like this! #MSWL
This is the BEST book I’ve ever read by a physician because it shows the divide between patients and physicians, and helps patients learn how to advocate for themselves while also telling some beautiful and tragic stories about high risk pregnancy. #MSWL!
Catherine Cho’s memoir about her time with postpartum psychosis is achingly beautiful. It delves into the intricacies of motherhood and mental health and deals beautifully and empathetically with an incredibly difficult topic. Please send me books like this! #MSWL
The Book of V is an insightful, multi POV and multi timeline story that connects three women, including Esther and Vashti from The Bible. I adore stories that take these ancient tales and connect them with modern stories. Please send me more! #MSWL!
Wishing I was back at the pool reading this funny, insightful book about what it’s like to own a Downton Abbey-esque home in the 21st century... it was golden and light and immensely enjoyable! #MSWL
A brilliant and harrowing novel from the POV of Mr. March from Little Women (though I probably loved Marmee’s parts the most...) I love novels that take old topics/stories and turn them on their heads... please send me more! #MSWL
I drink it when I’m sick or sad or cold... I adore almost all tea (particularly earl grey de la creme!). I also love learning about tea! This book teaches about the history, methods of preparation, and I loved reading it. #MSWL fiction or nonfiction about tea!
Sarah E. Patterson @spattersearchI do not wish to read another story anout "geniuses" & how they spent their time w/out the corresponding info about who was doing their cooking & cleaning. Someone compile that into a book (if they haven't already) & call it "Who was cooking for Darwin?"
