My bookofthemonth pick this month was also reesesbookclub and pick for the month so I knew it was gonna be a good one ! This book, set in the Depression era in Kentucky, is about 5 women who became known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. Loved reading this historical fiction about a time and place I was totally unfamiliar with – I love that about books! I had never heard of this initiative which was championed by Eleanor Roosevelt to bring books to more rural parts of the country. The book did drag a bit for me after 3/4 of the way through but still well worth reading… I do want to mention that there is some speculation that there may have been some plagiarism and although it’s not proven, it is unfortunate to hear. I did not factor that at all in my review but it definitely gives me some pause and I personally think it’s worth mentioning. I plan to read the other book shortly so I’ll have more thoughts after I’m done! 💙

  1. Thanks for the honesty in your review, I always like to know going in if there’s some controversy😬. Now did you make a cocktail with that bourbon or drink it neat?
