I forgot to mention in my BookTube video that today I ordered the latest novel by Siri Hustvelt titled, "The Blazing World". The writer Siri Hustvelt has become one of my favorite writers all of sudden. I enjoy watching her many videos in YouTube. I plan to get ALL her writings for our library. What I enjoy about Siri Hustvelt is her intellect. She is a very smart writer and I love what she reveals of her inner self in her novels and other writings/essays. Hustvelt is real. Her writings touch me both intellectually and emotionally. She speaks to something deep inside of me.
