OK, I just started reading Jessica Simpson's memoir and it's GOOD! I'm not sure she had help - she's been super open so I think if she had a ghostwriter she would have noted that but who knows. Anyway, so far so good....

My college roommates have decided to do a book club after doing an alumni webinar a few weeks ago from one of our favorite professors on geopolitics. So we're reading Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall, and in a few weeks, we'll have the first of our discussions. I've never been in a book club before! ;-) This one will be tri-continental!! We're in the US, UK, and Mozambique.....

Really enjoyed Jessica Simpsons memoir. Who knew?! Had our first book club for Prisoners of Geography on Saturday and that was amazing. We talked for 3 hrs - and some of it was actually the book! ? Next book club in a month...

Half way through The Woman Before Wallis by Bryn Turnbull - historical fiction about David, Prince of Wales mistress before Wallis, Thelma, Lady Furness. Aunt of Gloria Vanderbilt too...Very well written and y'all know I have a minor Wallis obsession so this is an interesting piece of history/fiction to add. It's her first novel too, I think.

I decided to re-read The Stand.  Haven't read it in over 20 years, but seems appropriate :)

Didn't they just remake that? I was living in Salt Lake when they filmed the original - lots of it in City Creek Canyon, right next to where I lived. So normally I hate steven king (I can't do scary!!) But I had to watch that....

I hear they are doing a mini series on one of the cable channel streaming services later this year.  I think CBS?  Whoopie G. plays one of the leads.

I didn't like Sex & Vanity as much as the first trio - Crazy Rich Asians etc - but he's a good writer and I enjoyed it. I ADORE Eloisa James 😍

Dropped off library books today. Didn't expect to go in but I did. Oops. Found 4 books to take home. I've had a bunch reserved on kindle through the library but they've updated the system - I can request a "redelivery" if a book on hold becomes available and I don't have time to read it.....

Next up - most recent Jim Butcher book in the Harry Dresden series - Battle Ground. Last book - if anyone wants a lovely queer historical romance - Cat Sebastian is a great author. Alison Weir's fiction series on Henry VIII's wives - up through Katheryn Howard now.
