The Unquiet Dead: A Novel | Ausma Zehanat Khan

Was surprisingly half decent. While there were aspects that were clunky, I thought it was an interesting topic to broach. 4⭐️#bookreview #bookstagram #letteru #u #litsyatoz2019 #litsyatoz

My first impression of this book was that the four main characters, prostitutes in Antwerp, moved there from Nigeria, had all chosen that life of their own free will. Reading deeper into each woman‘s story, it became clear that was not the case for most of them.

Obviously sad, and full of triggers, I still enjoyed getting to know these four ladies.

Chosen for #LetterU #LitsyAtoZ

ShyBookOwl I haven't read this book but I'm not sure free will is much of a factor for a lot of women in such scenarios. It's really quite upsetting. 1mo
Soubhiville @ShyBookOwl I think you‘re right. It‘s very upsetting. 1mo

I just love coming across interesting new-to-Me words while I‘m reading. This is a good one!

I wasn‘t sure how this book would be, I chose it entirely because I needed a #LetterU for #LitsyAtoZ authors. I‘m really enjoying it!

It‘s the story of 4 African women who move to Europe to try to improve the financial standing for themselves and in some cases for their families.

Well. Apart from being slightly disgusting & that awful chapter at the end about hysteria & a females lack of having a say about her body or future, it was an hilarious read. I don‘t think it would work as well on audio, it‘s the pictures that make it so entertaining. 4⭐️ #NonFiction2019 #SomethingThatMadeYouLaugh #MountTBR2019 #Bk6 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterU & #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #BookPickedByALittenYouAdmire

This is a good creepy suspense novel - who‘s killing the people who are stranded in this hotel during a snowstorm? I must admit that I had no idea! #LitsyAtoZ #LetterU

Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

Kingsolver mixes two story lines in this historical/contemporary fiction mashup. I connected with both for different reasons. The current story illustrates complex family relationships and societal issues. The historical story is less about family and more about science vs. status quo. It felt insightful without being too heavy. Still, just a 3.5 for me.

8little_paws I really liked this too. It wasn't perfect, but she was trying to do a lot of interesting stuff at once here and i appreciated what she was trying to do. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @8little_paws Yes, I agree. It makes me realize how much I MUST get to her other books also. 4mo
