The Fountains of Silence

Why She Wrote by Hannah K. Chapman and Lauren Burke
Why: A graphic novel about some of the greatest women who wrote in history? Sign me up! It was actually the question posed in the summary got me interested: in a time when being a woman writer often meant being undervalued, overlooked, or pigeonholed, why did she write?
Where I’m reading: local library
The Messy Lives of Book People by Phaedra Patrick
Why: Honestly, I forgot I had this book on hold from MONTHS ago and it finally became available… so of course I have to read it now!
Where I’m reading: libby app
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
Why: I have been dying to see the movie, but I know I would regret not reading the book first. I like comparing how I imagine the characters to the film. How about you? Do you have to read the book first or can you just go straight to the movie?
Where I’m reading: bought from a local bookstore
The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys
Why: This year I am doing the 52 Book Challenge created by Liz over at The 52 Book Club (highly recommend checking it out!). One of the prompts is Title Starting with “F”.
Where I’m reading: personal collection
