Unpopular opinion. This started out quite intriguing and then fell flat for me. Jane is badass, no doubt, and the narrator was awesome. I think it may have been just me wanting more zombie 😂 Will still read the sequel though.

@Mdargusch passed this one on to me after she read it a few years ago. I absolutely loved it—a fictionalized account of a murder wherein the dead bride supposedly comes to her mother after death and tells her that she was murdered by her new husband?! Yes please! This really happened (the circumstances—not the actual haunting. Unless it really did. 😆 #skeptic) Google Greenbrier Ghost. #soaringscores #didimakethemostoflovingyou

Hollie Yes! I talk about this in class and the students are always like wtf when I tell them they allowed testimony from the murder victims ghost into the courtroom 😂 4w
Reviewsbylola I‘m using this one for #personofcolorMCparanormal. Half of the book is told from the perspective of one of the attorneys that defended the ghost‘s husband, and the attorney was a POC. @cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage 4w
emtobiasz They told this story on an episode I just watched of the show Drunk History! 📺 4w

My Soul to Keep | Tananarive Due
post image

This was supposed to be a #screamathon book, but despite being shelved as horror on GR, it‘s definitely not a scary book. It is, however, really well-written urban fantasy/paranormal that I enjoyed a lot. Very original and thought-provoking. I loved Jessica, but the other main character was hard to like most of the time. I will continue the series.

This was also my #PersonOfColorMCParanormal for #Booked2019. 🙌🏻


Butterfinger Love the cover. 1mo

Kindred | Octavia E. Butler
post image

Generally I don‘t do very well with science fiction novels but Octavia Butler was exceptional. (I loved Parable of the Sower, need to get to the 2nd book). Kindred is remarkably haunting, intense, and powerful. A compelling read that combines thought provoking questions effortlessly.

Reviewsbylola I enjoyed this one. I haven‘t seen this cover before—love it! 1mo
batsy On my TBR! Sounds really good. 1mo
Ruthiella Butler‘s sci-fi is different from other writers. She keeps it at a very human and relatable level...no space wars or opera necessary. 😀 I admire her guts too...she goes places where others fear to tread and exposes our complicated natures. (edited) 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm She is admirable @Ruthiella , and the keeping things ‘at a very human and relatable level‘ is exactly what draws me to her stories. You hit the nail on the head on why her books are ‘readable‘ to me! 😊 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm This pretty edition is a UK paperback published in 2018 by Headline. Joining the #coverlove 😊 @Kalalalatja @DrexEdit @Tamra @Reviewsbylola 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm Hope you‘ll get around to read it, @batsy 👍 1mo
kspenmoll I love your cover!!‘ 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage This is a perfect pick for this prompt. The second Parable book is darker than the first, but so worth the time. 👊🏻♥️📚 1mo

An Orchestra of Minorities | Chigozie Obioma
post image

It‘s an extraordinary journey this man goes on , his chi - his gaurdian spirit. ..narrates the story & refers to the farmer ( MC ) as his host , there is no human narrator.
I felt the story very strongly.
“ We imprison them & kill them when we want because they are not so powerful “
An orchestra of minorities - they can only wail & cry. Now , he did go on a bit towards the end , but still, it was 5 ⭐️ #Booked2019 #Personofcolormcparanormal

Cinfhen I agree, it got a tiny bit off the rails but by then I was already completely won over ♥️ 3mo
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen me too - I was completely won over. Great story telling. He just has SO much to say ... a lot of words. But brilliant 3mo
Tamra If you liked it I‘ll check it out! 3mo

Cathythoughts @Tamra I think you might like it ♥️👍🏻 3mo
TrishB Great review 👍🏻 3mo
Simona I‘m a little over halfway and I‘m not as excited as you are 😕 3mo
Cathythoughts @TrishB thanks X 3mo
Cathythoughts @Simona oh dear 😬... the first half was my favorite. Maybe the second half will be yours 🤞🏻 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m bummed you‘re not loving this book @Simona 😩😩😩 3mo
Simona @Cinfhen I‘m not disappointed by the story per se, it‘s only that I have problems with the narrator .... 3mo
Cinfhen The chi?? Or are you listening to an #audio? @Simona 3mo
Simona @Cinfhen No, I have ebook, and yes, Chi was my problem. I finished the book and I really don‘t like his almost pleading voice ... 3mo
Cinfhen Interesting @Simona I thought the Chi was the best part of the story 🤓 3mo
Simona @Cinfhen I like it as an idea - how powerful narration tool this is .... 3mo

Binti | Nnedi Okorafor
post image

My rating is merely a consequence of the fact - that I don‘t like sci-fi. 🤷‍♀️

#Booked2019 #PersonOfColorMcParanormal

4thhouseontheleft This is one of my choices for that prompt...but I do like sci-fi and fantasy! 9mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job, Simona! I‘m hoping to read all three Binti stories this year. I‘ll need a reread on the first to slide into the rest of her trilogy. (Yeah, I like SFF also, which helps.) 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m with you @Simona and I don‘t care for GN / comics either 🙄 9mo

Simona @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage As I said - it‘s me, not the book. Absolutely nothing is wrong with the story, but my interest is lost whenever intergalactic travels starts.... but occasionally I do like soft fantasy. 9mo
Simona @Cinfhen Under the influence of Litsy, I read few graphic novels and I must admit that I was not disappointed 😘 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m reading one now which is good but I just don‘t enjoy the medium that much. Another case of #ItsMeNotYou 9mo
