It’s November, and if you’ve been hanging around the book-ternet, you’ll know that non-fiction is all the rage this month. (You can check out Non-Fiction November if you don’t believe me. Kim from Sophisticated Dorkiness, Becca from I’m Lost In Books, Leslie from Regular Rumination, and Katie from Doing Dewey are hosting it!) Now, I’m not huge on non-fiction, but I was inspired by the event to choose a non-fiction title that I’ve been meaning to read for AGES as our Fellowship of the Worms pick this month. We’re going to be reading Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed! Check out the Goodreads synopsis:
Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills—and it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice.
Tiny Beautiful Things brings the best of Dear Sugar in one place and includes never-before-published columns and a new introduction by Steve Almond. Rich with humor, insight, compassion—and absolute honesty—this book is a balm for everything life throws our way.
I’m really excited about this one! I’ve heard raves about it from lots of other bloggers (cough cough, SHANNON at River City Reading, cough.) If you’d like to participate in the discussion, we’re going to start chatting it up on Monday, December 15, 2014. There will be discussion questions and a link-up option, as per usual. I hope you’ll join me!!!
UPDATE: I wrote this post last week. Then I read this book. I absolutely devoured it and I’m DYING to talk about it. It’s been less than 24 hours and I’ve already recommended it to two friends. Seriously, y’all. Holy guacamole.
