My newest read is this novel which someone serendipitously slipped into my #LittleFreeLibrary. I had been looking around to see if I could find a book by an author from #India to use for a #LibraryThing book challenge to read a book by an Indian author. This is a debut novel which already hooked me so I gave it the go-ahead. It‘s a Book of the Month edition. Is that why the font in this book is unusually large? Weird!

#MarvellousMay #Readathon Check In :

I actually reached and surpassed my goal 😀
I finally finished the #Librarything EarlyReviewer ARC Dark Factory by Kathe Koja (Rather underwhelmed... 😑) - that was my goal.
Started Mine by Rachael Tamayo and finished it in five days AND started my next read The Unreliables.
So - success! 😁

Thank you @Andrew65 - it seems you got me out of my reading slump! 😊🙏

I like this book and the style it‘s written in. It‘s a library book I borrowed for a #LibraryThing reading challenge to read a book whose author is from one of the “Stans” (ASIAN BOOK CHALLENGE 2022 - IN MAY IT'S THE "STANS"). The author is from #Pakistan, and this story begins in #Karachi. I set aside the other four books I‘m reading to start this book! ?

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this from the #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewers program back in 2020, and I‘m so glad I finally picked it up. A moving family memoir but even more remarkable for the gorgeous, dense writing and for its meditations on California. I now have a long list of things about my state, past and present, that I need to know more about! I will absolutely read more from Atleework if she writes it.

I‘ve heard so many good things about this book. I‘m reading it now as part of a shared read on the #TIOLI challenges for #LibraryThing.

SqueakyChu I know this book is about time travel, but my mind is already traveling back to #1970, this book‘s publication date, in which a character has an #MG. Those were the days! ❤️ (edited) 4mo
SqueakyChu I can already tell I‘m going to love this book. I‘m on page 19. (edited) 4mo

Joining #AwesomeApril #Readathon hosted by awesome @Andrew65 . 🌸
My goal is humble: making a significant dent into (or possibly finishing?) my #Doublespin book I just started - the e-ARC for #LibraryThing 's #EarlyReviewers.

Won't have much time over the following weekend (birthday of someone special 😊), but big parts of next week look good for reading... 📚

This was quite good. Written by a journalist but super grounded in a whole bunch of social science research. I like the framing of first showing how bias works and then examining some bias-countering practices that have actually worked in areas like education, policing, the workplace, and healthcare. I read this via audio and highlighted key passages in an ARC that I was fortunate enough to receive from #LibraryThing. The author ⬇️⬇️

Christine narrates and doesn‘t necessarily have that pro narrator style, but I enjoyed (might be bc she‘s apparently from the very same part of Wisconsin where I grew up, so probably her slight regional accent spoke to my soul :). There were some really beautiful turns of phrase in this, too, which kind of would catch me off guard, but in a good way. #EarlyReviewers 5mo
