    I'm currently reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I'm likely behind on the times as it seems most avid readers have already finished this one. That being said, it's heartbreaking and I can't stop reading it.

    Another I just finished that was very good was The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. Seriously a 10/10.

    If anyone needs some recs for these trying times, my list of favorites:

    'Citizen' by Claudia Rankine
    'How To Be An Antiracist' by Ibram X. Kendi
    'Between The World and Me' by Ta-Nehisi Coates

    As for me, started 'Lakewood' by Megan Giddings today.

    I highly recommend The Legend of Drizzt by R.A. Salvatore! It's a 32 book series and he is still writing! On top of that there are multiple other stories that intertwine with this one so you will have a hard time running out of material to read. Or listen if you are more into that since every one is on audible as well. It's a great series if you are into fantasy and D&D. There is a lot of things I feel you can relate with and the way he writes is just incredible. I especially loved the way he was able to capture one of the characters in their struggles of dealing with PTSD. I really liked that it could help people understand it better but also his character development is spot on! Definitely give it a try if you get the chance c:

    I finished A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (the new Hunger Games prequel) last week and as much as I went into it baffled by how anyone could expect me to empathize with the VILLAIN of the main series...I did. There were some things that didn't make complete sense, and the ending felt a little rushed, but overall it was a good read! Lots of moments where I went "OMG THAT CONNECTS TO THG" and it does leave the door open for another prequel to explain even more - give it a try if you liked THG, Catching Fire, & Mockingjay!

    My favorite trilogy is "his dark materials" (which has a show, a movie, 2 spin off books and a 4th one on the way after yearsss). I also like the series "uglies" and "molly moon", which is about a girl who learns how to hypnotize. Very fun.

    I am busy reading all the books in the Alex McKnight series. Light reading by Steve Hamilton. I am learning about all the Yoopers living in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Lots of fun
