ARC Review: The Divorce Colony

The Divorce Colony: How Women Revolutionized Marriage and Found Freedom on the American Frontier by April White April White’s The Divorce Colony is set during the Gilded Age, in the America of the late 1800s.

Review: Too Much Is Not Enough: A Memoir of Fumbling Toward Adulthood

Too Much Is Not Enough: A Memoir of Fumbling Toward Adulthood by Andrew Rannells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Listened to the audiobook and Rannell's reading of his book is really good, and the story is funny and was a lot of fun to listen to. True to the subtitle, it ends when his childhood dream comes true - with his debut night in a role on a Broadway musical. If you want to pick this one up I really recommend the audiobook, as it was really fun to listen to.
