    To be brutally honest, I only am reading it to make my friend shut about about me reading it lol. Only reason I read Truman too. In general, I love historical fiction and biographies are a hit for me too….as long as they aren’t too dry. Truman was just so blah.

    I would rather have a tooth filled than read Truman

    “Lincoln in the Bardo” is kinda amazing. Highly recommend it. That ending sticks with you.

    The concept took a bit to get used to in my case but by chapter 5 I was hooked.

    Reading “Final Theory” by Mark Alpert for like a week or so already. It’s so cheesy yet bad yet good
