Mickey Meets The Giant

We loved it

Secrets, lies, and crawfish pies
by Abby Vandiver

View in Library Catalog



Fun read with interesting characters. Enjoyed.

Me Talk Pretty One Day David Sedaris
by David Sedaris Me Talk Pretty One Day

View in Library Catalog



Classic book of essays covering his family life, years as struggling artist working odd jobs, and, as the title suggests, his time in France and attempts to learn the language. Witty, self-deprecating. Sedaris' audiobooks recommended to get a sense of his personality.

Untamed Glennon Doyle
by Glennon Doyle Melton Untamed

View in Library Catalog



This is a great read that combines personal anecdotes with self-empowerment. Reminiscent of books like Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic (the author references Gilbert as a friend/mentor). Focuses a lot on parenting and on her relationship with wife Abby Wambach. Will probably make a lot more sense if you've read her previous book(s) first.

Simon And The Homosapien Agenda
by Becky Albertalli

View in Library Catalog



Delightful YA novel that is significantly better than the movie. Gives a lot of insight into the character Simon, who is even more likable here b/c he is less manipulative. Gives much more depth into the relationship of Simon and his pen pal Blue.

Wasn't expecting a "to be continued" book. Very good!

If you enjoy southern writing and stories about real life Sean Dietrich books are for you. Ever read Rick Bragg?? You'll love Seans!

I'm a Stranger Here Myself
by Bill Bryson

View in Library Catalog



This is a classic work of essays by Bryson told in his inimitable style. Is a unique perspective on American life after his having lived in UK for 20 years. Witty and insightful. Somewhat dated to the 90s.

I Love My Mommy Because

This is another one of my daughter's favorite books. We do all the sounds to it and when we're done we always reread it again and again.
