    TUESDAY TEN: AWESOME NONFICTION AUDIOBOOKS

            

    IN MEMORIAM: PETER MATTHIESSEN

        

    FIRST LINE FRIDAY

    "It is true 

    I was created in you.

    It is also true

    That you were created for me.

    I owned your voice. 

    It was shaped and tuned to soothe me.

    Your arms were molded 

    Into a cradle to hold me, to rock me. 

    The scent of your body was the air

    Perfumed for me to breathe.” 

    Happy birthday to an amazing woman, writer and a poet! Also, April is a National Poetry Month so let’s celebrate it with one of her amazing poems. Can you guess who we’re talking about? 

    CLASSIC THROWBACK: 

    Let’s get reintroduced to the meddlesome but lovable Miss Jane Marple! It’s a classically fun read. 

    TUESDAY TWELVE: SCIENCE FICTION AND BEYOND

               

    FIRST LINE FRIDAY

    "NOBODY EVER WARNED ME ABOUT MIRRORS, SO FOR MANY YEARS I WAS FOND OF THEM, AND BELIEVED THEM TO BE TRUSTWORTHY."

    It’s a book with a fantastically beautiful cover, a girl protagonist with a boy’s name, and so much beauty and darkness to dazzle and unsettle us all.

    What book am I enchanted with this week? Guess or check here

    JUST IN: Do not start this book tonight, unless you have a night to burn.
