Woohoo I made it through week 1! There is so much participation in this challenge, that it makes it so fun. I had a great time and tried to visit everyone, although I think I missed some bloggers near the end, due to my schedule and Halloween.
This week is all about book pairings!
Week 2: (Nov. 4 to 8) – Sarah’s Bookshelves is back to host – Book Pairing: This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story. SARAH
My first pairing is The Radium Girls with A Beautiful Poison. I love Lydia Kang and her books always send me down a rabbit hole to track down more information on what she writes about in her fiction. She is fascinating, and so are the real histories, although tragic for these women.
My second pairing is The Children’s Blizzard with The Long Winter. This would be an interesting duo to “buddy” read with a child. I always loved this Little House book but when I got older and read the real history of that winter, I saw just really how lucky to survive Laura and her family were.
