My Life My Choice

 

I am currently reading “educated” by Tara Westover, although I am enjoying this book very much I cannot wait to finish it so I can move on to the next book. My to-read list is growing far faster than my finished reading list and my nightstand is stacked with unread book but that does not stop me from buying more books, and I feel no guilt about this whatsoever.

Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives -- a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys. Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.

3. Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson

 
An unexpected teenage pregnancy pulls together two families from different social classes and exposes the private hopes, disappointments, and longings that can bind or divide us from each other. As it explores sexual desire and identity, ambition, gentrification, education, class and status, and the life-altering facts of parenthood, Red at the Bone most strikingly looks at the ways in which young people must so often make long-lasting decisions about their lives--even before they have begun to figure out who they are and what they want to be.  Release date: September 17, 2019.

4. The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

 
No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden. In Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. The Grace Year examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.  Release date : October 8, 2019.

Release date: November 12, 2019.
