One Lady's Mockingjay Wings

One, by Katherine Otoshi
The words were a bit too didactic for me, but oh! the pictures. Such life, in simple sweeping strokes.

A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains, by Isabella Bird
Bird was an intrepid and sensitive person, and reading this was mostly delightful, although I got pretty irritated with her assumptions from time to time.

Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins
A bit of a slow start, but once I was swept up, I stayed swept. Start with The Hunger Games. I found this concluding volume morally satisfying, which is not always the case with dystopian YA.

As Though I Had Wings, by Chet Baker
Drifting recollections of a life I still can't really imagine. Among the life story fragments, there are some really striking insights about jazz. I didn't read this closely, but I am very glad I read it.
