Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This month 5 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Your “Secret Subject” is:
What’s a book/book series/article you’ve read, a documentary you’ve watched, or podcast you’ve listened to in your life that you think everyone needs to partake in and why?

Lately, I guess it comes from today’s environment and trying to see where it all leads I’ve been reading a lot about WWII and Nazi Germany. The similarities are so terrifying to me. I loved the book The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak, it has always stuck with me. It left me emotionally raw and still moves me today when I think of it.
I also just finished a really good book called The Warsaw Orphans by Kelly Rimmer and I think it is also one that will stick with me. As an empath, emotions are always in play. I feel what other people feel. If you hurt, I hurt. If you cry, I cry. I can’t help it and it makes my life exhausting sometimes. Yesterday, just the Virginia Governors race sent me to bed in tears.
I have had to limit my news intake because of the pain that I feel whenever I watch it. I’m terrified for the country that I love and it seems to me that Republicans seem to be following Hitler’s playbook. We cannot let this happen here. We must hold Trump accountable for Jan 6th. We have to make everyone pay their fair share, and we need to start taxing these churches that are buying up the country with their tax-exempt status.
Also, another book that floored me was Where The Crawdad Sings by Delia Owens. It shows just how people cruel people can become when there is money involved. The Baby Thief by Barbara Bisantz Raymond tells the story of Georgia Tann who stole thousands of babies from the poor people in Tennessee and sold them to rich white couples. She was able to do this for over 20 years in AMERICA!
I would also like to say a big Happy Birthday to these two who turns 7 today! I love you to the moon and back.
