A great feminist utopian short story set in India. I found this gem on #SerialReader

For reading some of the early “feminist” stories from women of European heritage, I found this short story written in 1905 by a Muslim woman reversing the gender roles very interesting.

* Recommended if you enjoyed Angel Island by Inez Haynes Irwin or Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Bookwomble It's also collected in the tagged book, an anthology of Victorian/Edwardian sci-fi stories by women authors. I'd recommended it and it's companion volumes, The Darker Sex (horror/macabre), and Sisters in Crime (detective). 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookwomble That sounds excellent! I‘ll definitely look for it! 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I bet @BarbaraTheBibliophage would be interested in that book to. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookwomble I‘m definitely interesting in finding more from other POV‘s. This one and Woman at Point Zero are two that I‘ve stumbled across so far. Both polar opposites too, but great women fiction. 1mo

I just didn't enjoy it at all and I can't really put my finger on why. Not memorable.

lele1432 I need to get to this one! I have a feeling I'm going to like it. 2mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen There‘s a personal element to my love of this book, but there is something she captures here that is raw and enduring. Ripped me to shreds. I‘ll be thinking about this for awhile. 2mo

Cinfhen Sometimes a book speaks to someone differently, on an emotional or personal level. I‘m glad you connected with it. 2mo
Scochrane26 I also loved this one, while the rest of my book club didn‘t like it that much. 2mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen 😊 That‘s why I love that a diversity of books are published!! We all can find something to connect with! 2mo
Megabooks @Scochrane26 I‘m sorry they didn‘t like it, but I‘m glad you did. It‘s interesting to see what each of us likes! 2mo

Love, love, love. It‘s taking everything in me not to run to Barnes & Noble to buy the next book (I want to support my local bookstore, which is closed.) Patience is a virtue. While I was slightly confused with all of the different names to start, I just couldn‘t put it down! Please note, there‘s a glossary in the back. I loved the magic, the characters& the intense, multiple story lines . #booked2019 #muslimauthor #newyearwhodis

Brandon_Lee_Hayes Check your local library to see if they have it! I love buying books and supporting authors but there's nothing wrong with checking out the library! 3mo
Sresendez12 @Brandon_Lee_Hayes yes I love the library! They actually have an e-book available but their server is down and you can‘t download anything. Hopefully this evening! 3mo

Continuing with the #24in48 readathon this morning. My time is nothing to brag about but I‘m happy to have finished this book. Absolutely loved it! Often the second book in a series never lives up to the first but with A Torch Against the Night, the author has written another wonderfully crafted, intriguing, intelligent and hugely entertaining instalment to the story of Laia, Elias and Helene. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #muslimauthor #Booked2019 #Booked2019summer

IvoryLunatic I haven‘t made it much further either. I‘ll be happy if I make 12 hours but it‘s still fun to make reading a priority even if life gets in the way. :) 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Nice review! And great job on checking off another prompt! 4mo
Cinfhen So many people used the readathon to knock out #Booked2019 prompts!!! WinWin ♥️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4mo

Starting this one for the #muslimauthor prompt from summer‘s #booked2019 prompts. Already breaking my heart ...

@cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft

Amiable I love Hosseini‘s works —all of them are wonderful 4mo
SimplyShelia It's a dark read for most of the book but it is absolutely worth it imho. 🖤🖤🖤 4mo
UnabridgedPod One of my favorites. I adore Hosseini and all of his books so much. (I used to teach his stuff every year. Students loved it.) 4mo

KathyWheeler This is my favorite of his books. 4mo
Ingerella I loved this one and agree..the best of his books. 4mo
TrishB @KathyWheeler mine too 👍🏻 4mo
4thhouseontheleft This is such a good book. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Amiable This is only my second of his books. The Kite Runner affected me so much that I‘ve been nervous to read this one (or any of his others). 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @SimplyShelia Sure it dark. But so well done. I‘m about ⅔ finished. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @UnabridgedPod Oh this would be so good with high schoolers. It‘s so relevant. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Ingerella @TrishB @KathyWheeler It is just so good ... all I want to do is listen! 4mo
TrishB It‘s an amazing read 👍🏻 4mo
