Fat Girl Finishing School

Fat Girl Finishing SchoolFat Girl Finishing School by Rachel Wiley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn't like all of the poems in this collection. For example, the Bette Midler one went completely over my head. So why 5 stars? Because I did like several, and loved several, and found many notable lines, and in a collection of poems, finding multiple you love gets 5 stars.
"My excuse is pumpkin ice cream and three seasons of Luther on Netflix."
"I wanted to love you like a landmark
Now you just be some Fotomart."
The beginning of, "Blood Tongue".
Lot's of great lines in "Wife Material".
An interesting introduction to a lifestyle very different from my own.
I got a chance to read this for free through Netgalley's ebook program.

Review of Ghost Moon by Kathryn Knight

Ghost MoonGhost Moon by Kathryn Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A nice little paranormal mystery romance set in a small town in Cape Cod. I enjoyed the story, the mystery of who the ghost was was well done. My only complaint would be I would have liked Jesse and Lark's story to be a little more fleshed out; book seemed a little short. I guess that means I liked them.
I would recommend for fans of paranormal romances.
I received a free copy of the ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Health Issues And Getting Back To Work

Prior to this, my last post was May 2018. It's odd to think it's been almost two years. Odd but accurate. You see in June 2018 I had surgery to remove a tumor from my left lung. They removed 40% of the lower lobe of my left lung to get at the tumor and remove it.
I didn't start feeling at all like myself until at least February 2019.
I've basically been reconstructing my life ever since.
It's surprising how life alteringly exhausting it is to remove a piece of yourself.
