My great grandparents were from Poland and my aunt has visited there several times over the past few years and found it beautiful.
And thank you for this conversation. This is difficult subject and these books are important for us to read so we never forget, but they always fill me with both inspiration (because of the incredibly courage of the people) and anger (because of the atrocity). But I will happily read your recommendation so I educate myself better.(less)

The Secret Life of Trauma: Why Remembering is Important

I didn’t realize what trauma looked like until I was told it had happened to me.

That may sound a little silly, but I had never thought of myself as a person who had a traumatic experience. Trauma to me was seeing someone violently murdered or being brutally attacked and left for dead. Trauma didn’t seem to be what happened to me as a child.

But for 30 years – from the time I was 8 years old

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
"*3.5/5*

I felt like this book was way too slow paced for how short it was, and it sort of bugged me that the big reveal and explanation was left to the VERY end. It was like nothing nothing nothing BAM EVERYTHING.

However, the ending was crazy and..." Read more of this review »

"2.5 Stars. Unfortunately, I did not love this book and it is probably my least favorite of Gillian Flynn's work. As this was her debut, I'm happy to say I feel her later works show great improvement and a lot of strength.

Ugh. This book is dark. And from what I typically like, brother that is saving something. As someone who trains and educates others on mental illness, the subject matter of self-harm did not brother me. I thought Flynn handled this well and even, hop ...more

"*3.5 stars* (rounded down after more consideration)

It’s almost inevitable that this book will be compared to The Girl on the Train, which is a pretty flattering testament to the magnitude of a book’s success.

Hawkins always keep us guessing. A great who-done-it with a new perspective.
We see the characters - thankfully listed on the front page of the book - move seamlessly throughout the small town as the body of local author Nel is dragged from the water

“You can't go forward until you go back.”
Laureen Peltier, Hungry For Touch

“I don’t want you to think too hard about this,” he [Dr. Erickson] says cautiously.
But I am thinking about it. I’m thinking about how I hate to be touched, how I push men away, and how deeply afraid I am of sex. For the first time in my life I wonder why. What happened in that room that permanently stopped me from having intimate relationships?
What did I do?”
Laureen Peltier, Hungry For Touch

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

“You won’t understand what I mean now, but someday you will: the only trick of friendship, I think, is to find people who are better than you are—not smarter, not cooler, but kinder, and more generous, and more forgiving—and then to appreciate them for what they can teach you, and to try to listen to them when they tell you something about yourself, no matter how bad—or good—it might be, and to trust them, which is the hardest thing of all. But the best, as well.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life
