This Only Hurt a Litte by Busy Phillips
About the author – Busy Philipps’s autobiographical book offers the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that her Instagram followers have come to know and love. Hence, from growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona and her painful and painfully funny teen years, to her life as a working actress, mother, and famous best friend.
Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood. Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens large and small. From film to television, Busy delightfully showcases her wry humor and her willingness to bare it all. This book the first choice of Nate for his February 2019 Books reading collection.
There Your Heart Lies by Mary Gordon
This is the second among the February 2019 Books recommendations. Marian cut herself off from her wealthy, conservative Irish Catholic family when she volunteered during the Spanish Civil War. An experience she has always kept to herself. Now in her nineties, she shares her Rhode Island cottage with her granddaughter Amelia. A young woman of good heart but only a vague notion of life’s purpose. Thus, their daily existence is intertwined with Marian’s secret past. The blow to her youthful idealism when she witnessed the brutalities on both sides of Franco’s war. Therefore, the romance that left her trapped in Spain in perilous circumstances for nearly a decade.
Marian has cancer. Personal and ethical challenges nearly unthinkable to Amelia’s millennial generation. Hence, the unexpected gifts of true love and true friendship. Marian’s story compels Amelia to make her own journey to Spain, to reconcile her grandmother’s past with her own uncertain future.
A Call to Speak
This novel explores how the character is forged at a particular moment in history. Passed down through the generations, is especially relevant in our own time. Therefore, its call to arms. A call to speak honestly about evil when it is before us. Equally about goodness will linger long with its readers. Another choice of Nate Berkus for his February 2019 Books reading collection.
