It’s been a long time but it’s Terrific Title Thursday! How many of you are Cormac McCarthy fans? I finished The Road the last part of 2022. It was my top book of the year! Where to start?? Disclaimer-This book IS NOT for everyone-especially highly sensitive readers. Set in a post-apocalyptic world we travel with an unnamed father and son as they try to survive. Equally heartbreaking and hopeful (or at least in my opinion) this story will stay with you long after you finish the last page. Have you read The Road or other Cormac McCarthy titles? Let us know in the comments.

It’s time for Terrific Title Thursday!! Where are all of our non-fiction fans? Before and After is an account of the children impacted by the corrupt baby business in Memphis, TN at the Tennessee Children’s Home Society by Georgia Tan. It is not an easy read, trigger warnings abound but a very honest, brave account of the children (now adults) as they trace their roots and find their birth families.

A great book flight is the fictional account inspired by their stories-Before We We’re Yours by Lisa Wingate. BOTH titles available for you to check out.
