From Here to Eternity by Caitlin Doughty
The author of this book also has a youtube channel that I watch called Ask a Mortician where she talks about death and what she does as an alternative funeral director. That's where I first heard about her book, and I was very interested in reading it. I found it while browsing through Barnes and Noble and had to pick it up! In it, Caitlin explores death rituals around the world and analyzes why Western culture is so afraid of death and everything relating to it. So far it's been great and I look forward to reviewing it!
Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This was another find at Barnes and Noble. I've read another book by Laini Taylor, and I was absolutely in love with it, and I think I'm going to have the same experience with this one!
New Encyclopedia of Gardening- vol. 1
I was in a thrift store a couple of weeks ago, and I saw this book and had to have it. I sort of just flip through it and read whatever section I come across. But if it's to do with gardening, I will probably buy it.
The Swan Thieves- Elizabeth Kostova
I actually don't know much about this book, but the title sounded interesting so I went ahead and picked it up. I'll be very interested to read it in the next couple of weeks!
