Loved this book...insights into many of the ways “Chinese food” has been defined in Canada through the author exploring diverse experiences of restauranteurs, mostly in small towns,on a cross-country trip. This is interesting enough, but greatly deepened by Hui‘s own story of engaging with her aging parents and learning things she had never known about her restaurant-owning family‘s history in China and Canada.

Dogs on Doorsteps | Suzanne Stevenson

Definitely my #hiddengem for #booked2021 - so hidden that I had to add it to the GR database myself! This is a book of photos born from the pandemic... portraits of dogs on doorsteps.

The Haunted Vagina | Carlton Mellick

Who knew a book about someone‘s vagina being a portal to another world could actually be heartwarming. As usual, you never know exactly where his stories will take you but you can trust that the journey will entertain, surprise and delight you.

At only 90 pages I‘m using this for #Booked2021 prompt under 150 pages

Book 7 on #BookSpinBingo

Yuki_Onna wtf??? 🤔 🙌 😆 🤘 😂 9mo
Yuki_Onna @magyklyXdelish learning that such a book with this premise actually exists and you give it four stars is just hilarious and restoring some of my faith in humankind... 😅🤣
Thank you for brightening my week! 😘

The Opium Prince | Jasmine Aimaq
post image

Set in 1970s #Afghanistan, amid the West‘s attempts to eradicate the poppy fields used for opium and the beginnings of a Communist takeover of the Afghan government, The Opium Prince is a twisty thriller that alternates between the tales of two men whose lives becomes entwined. The story is engaging, with twists I didn‘t anticipate (and one or two I did), and I highly recommend the audiobook version of this. #readingasia2021

DGRachel ...and if you, like me, prefer genre fiction over travelogues for Reading Asia, you cannot go wrong with this one. 9mo
DGRachel I‘m also going to count this as my #hiddengem for #booked2021 because (1) I‘m the only one who has posted about it on Litsy so far, (2) there are only 60 reviews on Goodreads, most of those from NetGalley readers, and (3) only 7 ratings, including mine, on Storygraph. @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage 9mo
Cinfhen Awesome 👏🏼 👏🏼👏🏼great review! If I had‘t read #Afghanistan I would have tried this book 9mo
BarbaraBB Great catch and review 😍 9mo
Librarybelle That cover is so striking! 9mo

Snow Falling on Cedars | David Guterson

Bk2 of March is done. This is a beautifully written novel about the murder trial of a Japanese/American man, accused of killing a white man on a small Puget Sound island after WWII. It‘s also about the teenage love between a Japanese girl & the reporter that‘s now covering her husbands trial. But mostly, it‘s about race relations at that point in time & how hate can blind you. #Booked2021 #UnderratedBook #LitsyAtoZ2021 #LetterG #PennyPerPage #416c
