Picked up all but one of these in a second hand book shop this weekend with @literaryjourney and @lizzieksbookishways . The bottom of the stack is a new memoir called Educated by Tara Westover. I think I’ll read it first. Please share what you know if you’ve read any of them.

Icy Sparks is the sad, funny and transcendent tale of a young girl growing up in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky during the 1950’s. At the age of ten, Icy, a bright, curious child orphaned as a baby but raised by adoring grandparents, begins to have strange experiences. Try as she might, her "secrets"—verbal croaks, groans, and physical spasms—keep afflicting her. As an adult, she will find out she has Tourette’s Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, but for years her behavior is the source of mystery, confusion, and deep humiliation.

Narrated by a grown up Icy, the book chronicles a difficult, but ultimately hilarious and heartwarming journey, from her first spasms to her self-acceptance as a young woman. Curious about life beyond the hills, talented, and energetic, Icy learns to cut through all barriers—physical, mental, and spiritual—in order to find community and acceptance.

My entertainment for this week. Being in the hospital I decided to bring a little piece of home with me. Books include: The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Murder on Orient Express by Agatha Christie, and last but not least....Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hyman Rubio. I also brought one of the rocks Kalif brought home for me because I have a crazy rock obsession! Some coloring pages, markers, and headphones!#murderontheorientexpress

There is more treasure in books than in all the loot of treasure island remarked Walt disney.

This is a part of my mini hunt collecting treasures and devouring page after page like Lucifer. Books really do give us quiet in a noisy world.
