  • I have been hearing about the new novel Mischling by Affinity Konar all over the place, and this NY Times review by Michiko Kakutani made me even more intrigued. It’s the story of two sisters growing up subject to the horrifying experiments of the infamous Dr. Mengele in Auschwitz. Should be a very moving read.

  • Book Marks is a website I just discovered that aggregated results from reputable book review resources online to assign books a grade (like for movies on Rotten Tomatoes). Looks like a great resource for finding some titles to add to my ever-growing TBR pile.
  • Hopewell’s Public Library Of Life published a post about a reading app called Serial Reader. It’s an intriguing modern version of the serialized novel concept by providing short segments of classic novels on a daily basis to subscribers.
  • It’s Latinx Heritage month and I’m planning on participating in Naz’s Read Diverse Book’s link-up by reading The City Of Palaces by Michael Nava and posting a review. Here are Naz’s other suggestions for applicable books to read in honor of Latinx Heritage month and year-round.
  • The Effortless Chic had some good Fall Book Club picks, including non-fiction pick Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, which I featured in my September 2016 releases post earlier this month.

  • I loved the simplicity of this list of 20 Easy Things You Can Do To Improve Your Life. There are a lot of similar lists out there but this one has easy suggestions that I’m planning on implementing, since I’ve had a bit of a stressful week.
  • If you have anxiety like I do, this My Domaine post about how anxious people have higher IQs may make you feel like it’s all worth it after all.

    Update–loving Serial Reader. It’s just “right”. I did pay for the upgrade to get highlighting capability.
