This book broke my heart. Painful story of a native Ojibway Canadian taken to an abusive and horrific residential school who finds some solace in playing hockey, but even that joy is tainted by experiences he must confront. Saul‘s story and what so many children went through will stay with me. Beautifully written. #indigenousauthor #booked2019.

I had to read The Marrow Thieves in short increments, because it was stark in a way I did not enjoy. Lean descriptions and character interaction that served the purpose, but left me wanting more. I did appreciate the themes of heritage, connection, and hope in uncertain times, and found myself compelled to continue reading to the end, despite experiencing a lack of comfort throughout. Ultimately, an intense book I don't regret reading.

I‘m heading straight into my third #NFNov audiobook for the day while I get all comfy and ready for bed. Another book that‘s been on my personal shelf for far too long. I‘ll be jumping between the audiobook and the physical book for this one.

Sweet dreams, my fellow Littens! ♥️

Wrapping up #ripxiv - Readers Imbibing Peril XIV! I read the 12 books shown above, and also watched all 8 episodes of Amazon Prime's UNDONE (twice!) and 8 episodes of LOVE, DEATH AND ROBOTS on Netflix. THE MARROW THIEVES and FRIDAY BLACK were my favorites. 📚 #thriller #horror #zombieapocalypse #ghoststories #psychologicalthriller #politicalthriller #speculativefiction #scifi #fantasy #sff

There was so much good but the plot never felt clear. Best part was the indigenous people.

Thanks to @andrew61 for putting this book on my radar. Told in multiple POVs, Stella a young indigenous mother, witnesses a crime through her window but based on both her heritage and location it‘s nearly 4 hours before the police arrive bringing with them their own prejudices. It‘s an honest but bleak look at stereotypes, cultural differences and unacceptable norms, cycles of violence & aggression especially towards native women. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Reagan-reads Great review! This has been on my list for a while but I‘ll have to bump it up! 2mo
