Leftcoastzen @BarbaraBB Yes , I loved it . I think a person who enjoys reading anthropology,myth ,or women‘s studies would enjoy it. Her extensive field work kept it lively. 2mo

Just added to my TBR pile: a steampunk set in Civil War - era New Orleans, complete with airships and African orisha. Anyone read it or familiar with the author? #steampunk #urbanfantasy #neworleans #orisha #bravegirls #pocprotagonist

RadicalReader @Momoniqui I completely understand that feeling when reading a book and enjoying it so much you don‘t want it to end but then wish there was a sequel in the works or a film being made to enjoy it more 1y
Momoniqui @QuoteQueen thank you so much! 1y
