I finally finished last month‘s #shesaid pick. Some essays were better than others but it made me realize how many stories I have not read by Asian American authors. The author highlighted the continued racism and micro aggressions she has experienced throughout her life. It‘s another book to make me think & reflect about the experiences that others have. Another good book as I continue on with my Antiracism and examining Jedi principals (justice

Satire is hard. This book makes some excellent points but was too long for me. 3 🌟

Time Is a Mother | Ocean Vuong

This is my first time reading Ocean Vuong. I don‘t know how to review a poetry collection as this, it‘s something so personal and written with such honesty. I won‘t say they‘re beautiful; but one can feel his pain and cold anger. The ones about the loss of his mother were touching. Others felt unfocused and I was lost. I‘ll probably still give On Earth We‘re Briefly Gorgeous a try.

HeatherBookNerd I struggled with this one but just loved Briefly Gorgeous. Give it a try. 1w

Life has been running at an insane pace the last few weeks, coupled with the start of constant cold season from daycare. It was so nice to come home to my #fffs swap! @catiewithac I think you‘re my sender?

I adore everything thank you so much! I‘ll be in IN next week for work and was planning a stop at the gummy bear store! I didn‘t know it existed!

Thanks to the incomparable @Avanders for organizing! #fallingforfallswap

catiewithac Happy reading!! 1w

I've read previous poems by Vuong and this collection shows a lot of maturity in the writing. Vuong paints powerful imagery with his words and overall this is a really strong collection.

Started this one a few weeks ago, finally got through it. I'm not 💯 into the author's narration, there's something about all the stops that made it feel grating but the feelings and images he creates with his words are great and very heartbreaking, really enjoyed this
