There were some lovely prose here but the majority of this #poetry collection felt pretty cliche and listening to a #MillennialAuthor the age of my kids offer life and love advice left me a little jaded. This probably wasn‘t written for me 🙄 #JennyIs30

jenniferw88 Quick question: because I'm a mood reader can I jump around with the #booked2020 prompts? I'm just aware that when it comes to the quarterly check-ins that they might not all belong to one season! 😂😂😂 @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 23h
jillrhudy I feel that way about so many things. Starting to feel like a dinosaur 🦕 23h
Cinfhen Yes!!!! 💯JUMP as you like @jenniferw88 23h

Another great one in the series- although these are marketed as a crime series these are becoming more and more supernatural/gothic. Love the stories and characters.

Since I‘m the last person on earth to read this book I‘ll just share my thoughts 😂 This started out as SO much fun!! 🤗 then turned very VERY dark... but all throughout it was brilliantly written with passages about love that I have felt but could never express. Probably very daring for the time it was written. All in all it was a fun ride. Somewhat sinister at times.

This was one of those books that makes your life better for having read it. The author brilliantly called BS on the whole patriarchal system. She called out misogyny, racism & homophobia. Plus I don‘t think I‘ve ever heard anyone so accurately call out microaggressions and the way oppressed groups are villainized for even mentioning the oppression. I hope this is a best seller because more people need to hear this message. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2 out of 5

HOTPock3tt Prompts for this book= #Jennyis30 #Feminism. This author totally has my attention. I look forward to reading Shrill and watching her tv show!! 😃 (edited) 3d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt oh Shrill is so good! I‘m glad you loved this one. Lindy is awesome. ❤️ 3d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I got this one from your page!! Lol 😆 I read your review on it and that‘s how I became interested. She is AMAZING. She so clearly sees beyond social conditioning and says the things we are thinking but can‘t quite put into words about the patriarchal system in general. I was so impressed I will definitely check out her other work!! 🤗 (edited) 3d
Leftcoastzen Nice review! I found it funny and profound! 3d
HOTPock3tt Thank you!! 😃 it really was!! @Leftcoastzen 3d

That‘s my ‘family‘ book. The Logans were such a wonderful family and I learned so much from all of them, even the little kids, they just became one of my favourite families in a children‘s book ever.

AmyK1 I need to read this. I started it once 23 years ago when I was subbing at a school but didn‘t finish it. I bought it a couple months ago but just haven‘t gotten to it yet. 3d

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind | William Kamkwamba, Bryan Mealer

Pickpick

This memoir was about so much more than just a disadvantaged Malawian boy creating a windmill for electricity. At its core is a tale of ingenuity in the face of adversity, coupled with the power of friends, family, and strangers who believe in you and your potential. 4⭐️s! Other topics tackled included: scarcity, famine, effects of hunger on the brain, predatory price-gouging during famine, school fees and the cycle of poverty,👇🏽

lele1432 “Magic” and superstition used as a scapegoat for HIV/AIDS and famine, deforestation aiding in flooding and drought, farm livelihood dependent upon weather and fertilizer, and government corruption. It packed in a LOT and I admit some of the technical parts went over my head. But overall, an inspirational story I‘m glad to have read! Thanks @RachelO! (edited) 4d

RachelO Your prompts!! Brilliant! 🤣😂🤣 So glad you enjoyed it - he really did pack a lot in there. It shouldn‘t have, but the school fees thing really shocked me - it had just never occurred to me that the family would need to pay for his education in those circumstances. 3d
lele1432 @RachelO yes! I know here in the States we really take free primary/secondary education for granted. The school fees situation creating this cycle of poverty despite his obvious talent and ability to learn was heartbreaking. But it had a happy ending! 😊 3d
