===================

In April…

[BIOGRAPHY]

Rennie at What’s NonFiction?  enjoyed Three Martini Afternoons at the Ritz by Gail Crowther about poet’s Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, “Crowther impressively shows how these women defied (or sometimes struggled with) the standards and expectations of their time while making art from pain, art that has been so meaningful to so many people. But it’s more of a compare and contrast exercise than about their personal relationship.”

[FOOD]

Of The Search for God and Guinness: A Biography of the Beer that Changed the World by Stephen Mansfield, Tina at Turn The Page wrote “There were so many, “Oh I didn’t know that, how interesting” moments that I would stop and call out to [my husband], “Listen to this” and proceed to share parts of this book.”

[BIOGRAPHY]

Outback Legends by Evan McHugh, “gives a quick overall view of some outback heroes; people who have been stalwarts in their community and made such a big contribution that they deserve any honours they’ve received….This book makes me want to travel around Australia and visit some of the places mentioned.” says Suz of Suz’s Space

[HOBBIES]

“I highly recommend this for armchair explorers who want a glimpse of a world that few humans will ever see.” writes Jen of the Introverted Reader of Into the Planet: My Life as a Cave Diver by Jill Heinerth

[SELF HELP]

Lifeofabookwormdoc thought Complete Guide To Self Care by Kiki Ely was excellent. “This is a beautifully photographed and laid out book which has good suggestions in each category of self care.”

    Thanks for sharing mine! It was one of my favorites this year already. Into the Planet sounds so fascinating too. I’m trying to be better about linking mine up, I think I could actually be further along by now if I’d been better organized! In any case, it’s a lot of fun, thanks again for hosting this 🙂

    All these books sound so fantastic. I enjoy learning about the poets and anything memoir related so I may pick a few of those up.

    Thanks for linking to my review!

    I’ve added The Bell Jar to my Classics Club challenge, so maybe I’ll check out Three Martini Afternoons once I read that.

    I don’t know if I need to read a book that makes me want to visit Australia! I’ve already got an unbearable travel bug! The book sounds interesting.

    Some great books, but I think that cave diving book would give me nightmares 😆
