Doris Kearns Goodwin makes American history interesting and easily consumable in this book covering the turbulent events faced by Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Online life and reality collide in this teen romance.  It is quirky and humorous but don’t mistake it for a lightweight.  This book deals with some serious topics.

“The Art of Swap” is a fun revisit of the “Freaky Friday” trope. Two girls, one in 1905 and one in the present day, find themselves “swapped”.  There is a steep learning curve as Maggie (1905) is introduced to TV, pizza delivery, and cell phones and Hannah (present) is introduced to a more restrictive social order. This novel took on a lot as the girls attempt to solve an art heist and introduce women’s suffrage.

Life is hard when you get hungry and accidentally eat your best friend. This very simple children’s book is just what you need at the end of a hard day. Heck, you could even share it with the kids should you so decide.

This translated novel is all the rage right now on book tube. If you like quirky, unusual characters with a dark, satire-like storyline.  This is the book for you. I consumed this as an audiobook on the free libby app and so can you!
