Her Body and Other Parties | Carmen Maria Machado
post image

I worry sometimes that when we think of “diverse books“, we revert to thinking about kids/YA and school reading lists. I've written today about the importance of ALL readers diversifying their personal reading lives. Diverse reading makes us better people, and the world a better place. Plus, Her Body & Other Parties is a PERFECT spooky Halloween read! http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/diverse-books-reading-lists/ #DiverseBooks #DiverseReads

I'm working my way through this police procedural series set in Los Angeles. Detective Lou Norton is witty, clever, brash, and smart. She's great at her job. But not so much at her personal life. I love the complicated layers of this character and the plots so far have been exciting and unexpected. Recommended for anyone who likes mysteries but especially recommended if you love cop shows like Law and Order! #diversereads

MicheleinPhilly I have the first one of these. 2mo
valeriegeary @MicheleinPhilly I'm really enjoying them! I just finished the 2nd. Lou is turning into one of my fave detectives! 💪💪💪 2mo
MicheleinPhilly Excellent! May have to move it up! 2mo

This was not my favorite book of the year, but such an important one. As a white woman, raised in a two parent household, I acknowledge my privilege. I have no personal experiences to relate to those of the characters in this book. That is why, even though at times I didn't particularly enjoy it, I think it is such an important book to read. #diversereads #booksaswindows

A really good book I enjoyed listening to in 1 day. #lgbtq #comingofage #ya #diversereads

I know I‘m late to the #BFCr3 check-in, but it was a bit of a crazy day. My friend got hired Thursday at a new school and they have open house on Monday, so we went in to help her setup her room...all day.😔 so I didn‘t get my mental health goal in today, like I had planned, but I surpassed my 77,000 steps goal, I only drank 1 sugary drink, and read 1 book.

TheBookAddict I forgot I was supposed to track water intake, but I do know that I at least met that 64oz water goal half of the week. I also worked out Monday - Friday, no yoga though. #BFC (edited) 2mo

Fell asleep before posting last night, but one book done for #24B4Monday!
I am just barely giving this a pick. Mainly due to the very lovely dive into Chinese American culture. There are definitely some glorious food porn moments as well. I didn‘t live the main character though, she was just a bit drab to me. I enjoyed all the side characters though & still recommend! #audiobook #diversereads

Yeah, so...I'm an idiot and didn't grab this when it was featured in an #Audible sale. My mistake. My hold came in from Libby, and I am falling in love with Elizabeth Acevedo's narration!! I may have to go ahead and use a credit for this one, because I can see myself re-listening to this in the future! #audio #audiobook #popsugarreadingchallenge #pop19 #classics #retelling #ownvoices #diversereads #diversebooks

Sorry for the delay but this is headed your way Carrie!

I'm not entirely sure what I just read lol. Equal parts anti-war satire, social critique, musings on family & dealing with grief, ending with a fever dream of revelations...this book was indeed weird & lacked cohesiveness, but I like weird books! I've heard his non-fiction reads better. He has some powerful 1-liners & I felt some emotion towards the end, so I do see potential! Maybe ⭐️⭐️💫?

CSeydel Ack, I need to get a move on - I‘m still reading 4mo
lele1432 @CSeydel I did feel like that one needed a lot of focus to take it all in! 4mo

😍📖🤗❣ #LibraryHaul #BookCoverLove #Contemporary #DiverseReads #Romance 💘

So thrilled to pick this up from my local public library❣

Just because I work in a library myself, doesn't mean I don't visit and support OTHER libraries....as IF! 😜🤓 #LibrarianLife

Hope you're all having a great start to your week!🙋🏻‍♀️

Librariana We have a reciprocal agreement in our city that allows us to have library cards with both the city AND county system (where I'm employed 😁) I love supporting both and love encouraging customers to become library power users! Not to mention, there's also digital downloads! Yay libraries!! 4mo
Coleen_Nieto This one is on my wish list! Happy reading !! 4mo

This was sitting patiently in my TBR stack for a while gathering dust. Glad I brushed it off and read it finally. Complex, dramatic, humorous, and heartbreaking, it was also very empowering. Told in multiple voices, on the surface it‘s about wife number four joining a family and their struggles to adjust. In truth, it‘s about Bolanle living life on her own terms, even though it‘s hard. Beautifully told.
