Gilmore Girls Book Club: The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

If there was any other way to combine reading and the love of Gilmore Girls, this group of women clearly know how to do it right. Introducing the Gilmore Girls Book Club! A colleague of mine found a list for 13 Books Coming Out for Gilmore Girls Fans in 2017 and gauged interest from us and the rest is history. To clarify, none of these books are directly related to the Gilmore Girls nor are they on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. They are books reminiscent of small town living and the quirky and lovable characters we’ve grown up with.

Book Review: Soup Stories: A Reconstructed Memoir by CLS Ferguson

Title: Soup Stories: A Reconstructed Memoir

Author: CLS Ferguson

Published: 2017

Pages: 222

Genre: Memoir

Format: Print copy mailed by author in exchange for an honest review

My rating: 4/5

Synopsis:

Soup Stories is a coming-of-age memoir set at a salad buffet and bakery restaurant. It is a “reconstructed” memoir; a mixture of memories and fantasies, combined with the truth of perspective and experience. While each short piece stands alone as a complete vignette, the collection also reads as a cohesive narrative. Beginning in 1998, the story follows Ferguson’s ten-year journey, from being hired for the first time (outside of babysitting and household chores) to finally completing a PhD in Communication, and being hired as a full-time professor. Ferguson deftly weaves heart and humor into these tales of sex, drugs, heartbreak, failure, and redemption. While the narrative is derived from Ferguson’s reconstructed memory, memories of other’s reassigned as her own, and some complete fantasies, names (other than her own) and identifying details have been changed to protect those she loved, learned from, and ultimately released.
