A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You // Amy Bloom
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This short story collection explores what love means to different people. It follows the love a mother has for her daughter as she becomes a man. In another story we see the love a husband has for his wife as she battles breast cancer and the love her best friend secretly shares for her too as she cares for her friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I have made the best and happiest ending that I can in this world, made it out of the flax and netting and leftover trim of someone else’s life, I know, but made it to keep the innocent safe and the guilty punished, and I have made it as the world should be and not as I have found it.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was not my favorite short story collection but there were a couple stories that resonated with me.
Definitely looking forward to my next short story read 💕

🌹"Rise up. Tell me that whatever this costs, however pointless this is, the pleasure of it is so great, your need for me is so tremendous that however this will end— and we are too old not to know that it'll end either this way, with common sense and muted loss and a sad cup of coffee or with something worse in a parking lot somewhere a few months from now, and it's not likely to cover either one of us with glory— it is somehow worth it."
—Amy Bloom,
Where The God Of Love Hangs Out

On a day when turning a year older isn't an option... it's important to remember that you ARE beautiful. Embrace those curves that each baby has blessed you with, and those scars and stretch marks that have somehow became a part of your once tight and toned body. Look at those laugh lines and remember how happy this life has made you. There is so much beauty to be seen if you just look close enough ... love yourself for all that you are and all that you are yet to be.

Two books I read recently that I absolutely loved, so much so that I'm keeping them. I recently got rid of a bunch of books because I needed to clear out the room that is going to be the nursery but I of course kept my favorites. Can't wait to read more from these authors! 📚📚📚 #booksofinstagram #amybloom #isabelallende

I got to hear Amy Bloom speak and get a signed copy of her new book. :) Fun fact: when she writes sex scenes she finds it so cringe-y that she types them with her eyes closed. 😜😂 📚🙈 #amybloom #booksigning #breakwaterbooks

White Houses by Amy Bloom is my current read. This was my #busymamabookswap gift from the very kind @bookworm.j ❤️ This is the author’s fictionalized story of the love between Eleanor Roosevelt and her secretary “Hick.” It’s a gentle, absorbing read with an accurate insight into life in the 30’s and 40’s. I’m really enjoying this so far ❤️ Happy Saturday book love worms 🤓❤️📖xx

I decided a long time ago I was going to embrace my imperfections and acknowledge my shortcomings.
—————
It would be such a disservice to myself to continuously compare myself and my work to others, to look at another person’s success and to minimize my own, and to let those things hinder my forward motion.
—————
Imperfections are those tiny, little spots in our lives that give us our “flair.”
You are beautiful. Your work is beautiful. And in case you were questioning it, you have something wonderful, unique, and worthwhile to bring to this world.
Embrace your “flair!”✨

Flawed. And still worthy...💥 .
.
.
.
Perfection is an illusion. A lie. A falsehood. An unrealistic concept of “ideals” based on blind, social conditioning over time. Simply put, perfection is bullshit. .
.
.
Having spent most of my life aspiring to unrealistic ideals, I now often refer to myself as a “recovering perfectionist”. Here’s the thing - the moment you let go, is the moment of ultimate freedom.
.
.
.
Just in case you need a reminder, there is no right way. Everything is good enough. You are good enough. You are amazingly, beautifully, perfectly and imperfectly magnificent, exactly as you are. .
.
.
You are love. You are light. And everything you’re searching for already exists within you...

📚Book Review📚 White Houses by Amy Bloom is a historical fiction novel based on letters between Lorena Hickok and Eleanor Roosevelt. 
Apparently, there are 3000 letters between Eleanor and Lorena in the FDR Library in Hyde Park. The letters are written with so much love and drama that their relationship could not have been platonic. It seems that over time historians have come to accept this. In 2018, the idea is more dramatic than scandalous, but the thought of a homosexual relationship for a first lady makes for great fiction, which Amy Bloom has brilliantly and tenderly created. Lorena narrates the story of how they met, the way they loved one another, how circumstances separated them, and how they were reunited when FDR died in 1945. Lorena, also known as Hick, is an extraordinary character from a very poor background, raped by her father as a young girl, sent to live as a housemaid when her mother died, and found work for a time in the circus. Because of her determination and brilliance, she became a journalist, meeting Eleanor on FDR’s first political campaign. She had to resign from the Associated Press due to her lack of objectivity about the first couple, so Franklin helped her get a job within the White House. While there, she was able to continue her affair with Eleanor unrestricted and with the full approval of Franklin, who, of course, was having his own affairs. There has been so much written of his affairs!
Amy Bloom is a wonderful writer. This story is told as if Lorena is writing her autobiography. This is a book that you can get lost in, forgetting it is fiction. I would love to see the letters shared between these two women. Eleanor Roosevelt was an amazing woman, who helped the country through some difficult times, all the while never really being loved by her husband. I hope that the historians are right and that Lorena and Eleanor shared a love. She was deserving of this kind of love. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Amy Bloom, White Houses

Untuk novel barunya yang menerangi para pembaca dengan lembut, Bloom menampilkan ribuan surat yang mengungkapkan hubungan antara Eleanor Roosevelt dan Lorena Hickok, mantan reporter Associated Press yang diam-diam tinggal di lorong Eleanor saat dia menjadi Ibu Negara Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Bloom mengisahkan ceritanya dari sudut pandang "Hick" - seorang perempuan yang mengaku udik, perokok dan peminum yang berterus terang tentang pola asuhnya yang keras, hari-harinya dengan korps pers dan cintanya yang abadi untuk Eleanor.

Eleanor beralih ke Hick pada tahun 1945 setelah pemakaman suaminya FDR, dan dia dihiburkan - minum alkohol, mendengarkan Cole Porter, tidur siang. Sementara itu, Hick menyuguhi kita dengan kisah pertemuan mereka pada tahun 1932, waktu mereka di jalan, pertemuannya dengan FDR dan bahaya serta indahnya mencintai orang yang berkuasa.

Do you have oak cabinets?😝
Well, paint ‘em black... and don’t worry, cabinets that came down were lightly filled w things never even used. Plenty of cabinetry and a pantry on other side of kitchen. You know the money saved? A bunch🤑:). We saved the countertop, undermount sink, etc. Oh, and black dishwasher! You didn’t notice that, did ya😉. Designed by Spundesign.

Happy Sunday! I want you all to remember your worth today. Constantly remind yourself of all the incredible things you have done and continue to do. It's easy to get caught up in the now, but you can't forget what helped mold you into getting there. Think about how you came to achieve your success- maybe it was joining the right organization, or nailing a job interview, or maybe it was because of a mistake or two. Always, always, ALWAYS keep growing, but glance back at all you've done and appreciate the hard work you put in. Don't strive to be perfect, strive to be you.

Every September I make a bit of an effort to read short stories, which I (like many fiction readers, I'm sure) tend to struggle with. Here's how I fared this year: https://bookishbeck.wordpress.com/2018/09/28/short-story-collections-read-recently/. The Amy Bloom and Helen Simpson collections, in particular, were wonderful. #books #allthebooks #bookblogger #bookaddict #shortstories #amybloom #sarahhall #helensimpson #danielwoodrell #dirtyrealism #prettycovers #instabook #bookstagram

I don’t know much at all about American history - some vague memory of the Depression and the New Deal from school..so I found this novel intriguing. It’s narrated by the journalist Lorena Hickok who was the real-life friend and possibly lover of Eleanor Roosevelt and lived in the White House during FDR’s presidency. Vividly portrayed with believable characters. I was shocked to learn that FDR was a womaniser, they never mentioned that in school history lessons!

It’s #ThrowbackThursday and today I want to talk about a book I read earlier this year...WHITE HOUSES by Amy Bloom was @purewowbookclub pick for the month of April and I read along with them that month.

It’s #ThrowbackThursday and today I want to talk about a book I read earlier this year...WHITE HOUSES by Amy Bloom was @purewowbookclub pick for the month of April and I read along with them that month. My thoughts are over on the blog (girlwithnoselfie.com) but I’m more curious about yours. Have you read WHITE HOUSES What were your thoughts Is it on your TBR pile 📚♥️✨

White Houses by Amy Bloom. A fictionalised account of the romantic relationship between Eleanor Roosevelt and journalist Lorena Hickok. It was a pleasure to be immersed in this love story and think about how love and romance can encapsulate big, explosive moments but also the tiny gestures, touches and words that fortify how you feel about yourself and the person you love.

Went to the #GetLitBookandWine book club with @chsbookmobile #ItinerantLiterate . The food was amazing, fun company, and I continue to sample wine to find something I might like. I did like the moscato and the blonde bloody mary today. #WhiteHouses by #AmyBloom was an interesting read about Eleanor Roosevelt and her lesbian lover, Lorena Hickok. It's historical FICTION so, well, some characters and events were fabricated. I'll let you read it and decide.

Yesterday I went to The Provincetown Book Festival, and the lineup was impressive. This picture is from a session on the business of books. Author Jamie Brenner (right) moderated a great panel discussion with editors, literary agents and publishers. The day concluded with a First Ladies of Fiction conversation between Amy Bloom, Curtis Sittenfeld and Julia Glass. It was all so much fun for this bookworm. XO, Tara

“I am interested in the gaps between one piece of sidewalk and the next. I am interested in the things for which we don’t always have a name, and the things that are not easy to articulate - the difference between what we think and how we feel.”
