I am in the last few chapters of Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows and eager to begin my second book here in Bali for our #ScreamsByMail #HorrorPostalBookClub and #WomenReadWomen2019. Our private villa has an in-house chef who makes the most mouth-watering dishes. Truly delicious.

Kalalalatja 😍😍😍 7mo

Seed | Ania Ahlborn
post image

To say that I am utterly creeped out by this novel is an understatement. I am only in the first few pages, but I can tell Ahlborn is a master at building up the suspense and the creepazoid factor that is simply goosebumps-inducing. Paired with my fave premium coconut ice cream with green jelly, toasted coconut flakes and peanuts in a bowl of coconut. Because we celebrate tropical goodness the whole year round. #ScreamsByMail #HorrorPostalBookClub

ephemeralwaltz I'm so excited for this one! I loved her book for round 1. 😍😍😍😍 Yummy! 10mo
scripturient Glad you like it. 😁 10mo
Purrfectpages That snack looks so interesting! 10mo
Lindy Young 🥥❤️Delicious! 10mo
BookNerd9906 Everything she writes is absolutely terrifying. I have The Seed, haven‘t read it yet. I couldn‘t even get through the one I recently picked up 10mo

Sula | Toni Morrison
post image

Yeah, 451 characters can‘t do this book justice. There is so much in this 176 page book. If I had a bookclub I would force this on them so I could have someone to talk about this book. This is my first book of Morrison and I would like to read more. This was challenging and I don‘t think I got it all. Instead of getting something nicely wrapped up in a box, I have dirt under my fingernails. I‘ll probably reread it some time later. A pick!!

Cinfhen Great review!!! Missed you!!! 10mo
Reggie @Cinfhen Thanks!!! And hi 🙋🏽‍♂️!!! 10mo
SaturnDoo I just started reading this tonight lol 10mo

Cathythoughts Great review, I read this one too. Loved it & I would also need to read it again. ♥️💔 10mo
sprainedbrain Excellent review, as always! 10mo
Reggie @SaturnDoo I work at a casino so I‘m gonna go with my token “Good Luck” on this book. I hope you like it but it‘s more like I hope you become intrigued by this book that has a lot to say about community and parent/children relationships, and how evil or the presence of a villain might be necessary, or how friendships are important in the most mundane and spectacular ways. There is a lot. So good luck!!! Lol 10mo
Reggie @Cathythoughts @sprainedbrain Thank you!! It‘s been a couple of hours and I still have that “I just read something that is better than I can explain it smile” on. 10mo
GatheringBooks any chance that we could have a literary version of our #horrorpostalbookclub #screamsbymail? i have yet to read this one and would love to read it alongside the others like @ephemeralwaltz @scripturient @kamoorephoto @BookishTrish @danibolahood - unless of course literary fiction is a no-no for the others. 🧚🏼‍♀️😂📚💕😍 10mo
ephemeralwaltz I looooooved Sula. Morrison's work is amazing beyond words. She is other-worldly. My first of hers was Song of Solomon and it. Blew. My. Mind. 10mo
ephemeralwaltz @GatheringBooks I would love that!! Literary fiction is what I read the most so I would be down. 10mo
GatheringBooks @ephemeralwaltz you were the first person that came to mind, actually! hopefully the others are good with it too. we could do it in 2020. or after round 2! 😂🧚🏼‍♀️📚💕 10mo
Reggie @GatheringBooks I haven‘t sent off my book yet. But if the others are ok with it, I wouldn‘t mind going back and doing a journal for this book instead and if everyone else is ok and Clara is ok rereading this one. 10mo
GatheringBooks @Reggie i was thinking along the lines of round 3 (hahahha), as i think the others may be expecting horror stories for round 2. unless, of course Sula also has horrifying elements thrown into the narrative. I know Beloved has that creepy ghostly vibe. 10mo
scripturient @GatheringBooks Literary fiction for round three sounds awesome! 10mo
Blaire My favorite of hers is 10mo
Lindy Back in the 1980s, a book-loving friend told me about a complaint from a colleague (they were nurses) that her new book club had chosen Sula. She had started the book but gave up on it. “It‘s all about Black people. They expect me to read a book about Black people?” I remember how sad my friend was, at having a coworker with that attitude. Thinking about it now, I hope that nurse went on to read books that opened her mind. 10mo
BookishTrish I haven‘t read this since the 1990s and I LOVED it then. Would be up for a reread for round 3. 10mo
Tanisha_A The first and only (till yet) book I have read of hers is The Bluest Eye! Her writing rips my heart right out! 10mo
rohit-sawant Terrific review, man! I haven't read her yet but hoping to change that soon! 10mo
Redwritinghood Great review! 10mo
danibolahood @GatheringBooks @ephemeralwaltz @BookishTrish @kamoorephoto @reggie @scripturient I am definitely not a fan of literary fiction for the most part but would definitely be for you lovely people to attempt to change my mind with your choices. As long as you don't mind having your notebooks full of my whining about not getting it lol 10mo
Reggie @Lindy what is it about nurses?!!! In college I remember there was this nursing major quoted in the campus paper saying that all gay people should just keep their dirty blood to themselves when it came to blood donation. Where is the empathy!!! I hope so, too about your friend‘s coworker. 10mo
Reggie @Blaire @Tanisha_A I will look into both. Still today at work I was walking around thinking about this book. 10mo
Reggie @rohit-sawant @Redwritinghood Thanks!! 10mo
Centique Great review! And man once you‘re on the Toni Morrison train, there is no getting off! I love love love her. I‘ve only read 4 so there‘s plenty more to go. I‘d love to see what you think of The Bluest Eye. So beautiful and so heart destroying all at once. Must bump Sula up the list! 10mo
Suet624 Ahh, you‘ve reminded me to sit down with one of her books. For years I was avoiding her because I knew she would rip my heart out. Now my heart has developed a bit of a callus and I think I can handle it. 🙂 10mo
Reggie @Centique @Suet624 Paula, depending how this month goes I might get to The Bluest Eye because I am intrigued. Sue, I think Sula would be a great place to start because it didn‘t rip my heart out but I was left stunned. I can‘t explain it. Just stunned. So much to think about. Both of you would like Sula. 10mo
ValerieAndBooks This was so good! Complex, but good. 10mo
Reggie @ValerieAndBooks there were times when I didn‘t know how to feel about Sula. 10mo
minkyb Brilliant review as always! 10mo
ReadingEnvy I really liked this one. 10mo
readordierachel I just read this in one sitting on a plane a few days ago. So good! Love your review! 10mo
Reggie @readordierachel Thanks, yeah, this book, lol, it put me through the wringer. 10mo
