Hi everyone,

From now on, I will be posting my reviews every Tuesday. Next Tuesday, we will be discussing Bridget Jones’s Diary, which I hope will be a nice light discussion after the grief of Refuge. To spice things back up again, we will take on Parrot Pie for Breakfast, which is an anthology of stories about and by women pioneers. I think the title itself promises an excellent read and some very fun discussion possibilities. (Would you eat parrot pie?)

I will also be posting every Friday a more relaxed discussion on books that I have reviewed and upcoming events.  I’ve felt confined lately by the review format of this blog. I want to open it up and hopefully stir up conversations. In this space, we can compare books to each other or other things happening in the “real” world.  Or I can describe a little bit more of the reading experience itself.

I really enjoyed reading Eat, Pray, Love because there were so many layers to the book. You could just read it for the story itself. You could read it as a travel journal. Or you could read it for inspiration. The story lends itself to any kind of mood. It was also a fun book to read.

Refuge, on the other hand, was very hard to write about. I appreciated the book and loved the descriptions of nature and the character’s interaction with nature. I had difficulties, however, separating the story from my own grief. Refuge also made me want to take up bird-watching because it sounded like a fascinating hobby. Her descriptions of the appearance and characteristics of various birds charmed me. I could see them, in my mind’s eye, and wanted to be able to actually meet these lovely animals.

What Boudica books have you read this month? Any books challenge you, as a woman, to look beyond the expected. Any books make you rethink what it is to be a woman? Or did you read a pleasant story with an awesome female protagonist? All of these are Boudica books and I would love to hear about them and your experiences.
