About to start listening to this while trying to finish knitting a scarf I‘m making for my charity box.

I am honestly surprised how high the rating on this one is. But then I scrolled through looking for any reviewer who was not white and could not find anyone. This book is racist. The Black characters are drawn as cartoonish and the N word is used with great abandon. The R slur is used throughout also which is always jarring.
I finished it, there was some charm in the areas she stuck to writing about the white characters, wish it was all that.

Cortg I didn‘t care for it either. 3d
marleed I read this book 2 years ago - many years after watching the movie. I gave it a pick and was glad I read it during a tumultuous time in our history. This was the book that confirmed my need to be anti-racist. The language in this book was grueling to read. With 80s mindset we thought it was okay coming from ‘non-racist‘ characters. No! For that reason I thought it was an important read in the 2020s. We must be better. 3d
ChaoticMissAdventures @marleed sadly I think a lot of people still think this way. The same people who defend flying the confederacy flag. I think because I came from a family that had all different races in it (my grandma liked to call us her UN babies) and this language was never appropriate it might be more jarring for me. The author I felt doesn't delve deep enough into why this attitude was bad which I fear makes it miss its mark. I am glad you found good in it 3d

Audio book day as my eyes continue to adjust from Lasik. Getting the plants watered to feel productive.

This book has a grating racist undertone to it that I am not enjoying. I think it is going to be one of those few books that I enjoy the movie more.

Going to attempt to join! I am getting Lasik today so I might be doing most of my reading this weekend in audio.

If I am able to read a bit I want to finish Careless by Kristy Capes

Audio I am going to read the tagged and Far From the Madding Crowd.

LiteraryinLawrence Hope the procedure goes well! 6d
ChaoticMissAdventures @LiteraryinLawrence thanks! I am super nervous. 6d
Andrew65 Hope the procedure has gone well, given that audiobooks are definitely the way to go. Great to have you with us given the circumstances. 6d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved this!! We need more YA like it!

Although I couldn't relate to everything Yamilet experiences as a queer young woman of color, I can relate to being raised under the shadow of the Catholic church, attending Catholic school, and having a brother who struggles. Finding comfort in art class and the thrill and lightness of young love also reminded me of my high school experience.

⚠️ Comes with a trigger warning.

Fulfills the single parent category for #SapphicBingo2023. Protagonist Molly is a single mother. Loved this novella.

Starting this today!

I'm traveling, so I'm trying to get through some of the ebooks I had previously purchased. I am not the best at keeping up with ebooks. I prefer to have a book in my hands!

A sweet story of an American student painter in Paris. The illustrations are lovely.

AnneCecilie I bought this some months ago not knowing anything about because it was set in Paris and I love that town. I glad it‘s a good comic and I love the illustrations you posted. Now I really have something to look forward to. 1w
