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 1d
jillrhudy I feel that way about so many things. Starting to feel like a dinosaur 🦕 1d
Cinfhen Yes!!!! 💯JUMP as you like @jenniferw88 1d

This is a dark & beautiful book. Searching the depths of human feeling ... the characters are wounded physically & emotionally. Speaking of those they had lost to wartimes , Sonja says “ maybe we try to find them in other people, in kindness & generosity “
Such truthful & brilliant writing.
I will use for #millennialauthor #booked2020

DGRachel One of my favorite books of 2017. I‘m eternally grateful to Litsy for the recommendation, as it got me out of a slump. 22h
Billypar Great review: glad you stuck with it! I kept putting myself in the characters' shoes, which is terrifying given the violence described, but it gave me a new appreciation for what it must mean to be brave in a situation like that. 19h
Cathythoughts @DGRachel A great book. I‘m eternally grateful to Litsy too ... almost all the books I read now are Litsy recommendations ❤️❤️❤️ 13h
Cathythoughts @Billypar Thanks Vinny, , it took courage to put yourself in their shoes ...💔. I loved the way life& love were seen as always having been here before we were born & will always be here after we are gone .. I loved that 13h

Cathythoughts @andrew61 Thanks Andrew ! It‘s a memorable book for sure 3h

All. The. Feels. This book was primal for me. Her story touched a raw nerve in my body. Her experiences are specific and universal at the same time. I can see how it was her kuleana (obligation in Hawaiian) to write this story of her, her mother, her father, of being queer, of being Chinese/Hawaiian/Jewish, but also the story of her being a human girl in an imperfect body and all that comes with it. 5⭐️

Reading by my fire , I want to bail , but the writing is waking up a part of me that wants to hear this/these stories - of war & the people who lived through this time - 2004 the second Chechen war , I‘ve become very invested in the characters now , it‘s too late to bail , a woman curved like a comma , an eclipse, metaphors that cut to the truth 👍🏻💔❤️ Thankyou #booked2020 I‘m reading books I might never have #millennialauthor

TrishB Looks like a gorgeous reading spot ❤️ 3d
Tamra So comfy! This one is on my shelf so I‘m curious. 3d
Cathythoughts @TrishB there‘s nothing like the fire 👍🏻❤️ 3d

I enjoyed this book for the most part, but the second half needed something. It wasn‘t a favorite read, but it was fast and entertaining.

First book down for #NewYearWhoDis and it was a good one! I found this book fascinating and well written and also very frustrating. 🙃

Cinfhen Well played 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼💕 7d
BarbaraTheBibliophage I just read this. It‘s so good. What a unique (and harrowing) life! ♥️📚👊🏻 6d
klarusu I totally agree on the frustrating. I had to keep putting it down and coming back to it because I was exasperated. 3d

This was like, the third time I started it. Thanks to #booked2020 I actually got through it this time. I‘m glad I did. Elizabeth is a bada**. #millennialauthor #girlsrock

4thhouseontheleft Three times a charm? 😃 4d
LeticiaToraci Good to know that Kiersten is a millenial author, I'll pick another book by her. I read "The Dark Descent..." last year 3d

#Booked2020 #Winter #MillennialAuthor I love Lindy West! She is fierce and not afraid to tell it like it is. She can tackle difficult topics directly and still find wit and humor in the process.I read her previous book & watched the Hulu show Shrill, enjoyed that too. Hope I am up to the challenge this year, my last quarter didn‘t come together last year.🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️Gonna try to find most books for the prompts from #TBRmountain

BarbaraTheBibliophage Glad you‘re joining us—keeping it fun, right?!?! I‘m anxious to read this book. 7d
Cinfhen Great choice for #millennialauthor 🙌🏻 7d
