I should have used my brain better this morning.
I didn‘t bring my book with me today and I now have 1 hr lunches (new job). I‘m really bored.

JenlovesJT47 Kindle app on my phone is a lifesaver! 2d
Linsy Oh no!!! @Jenlovesjt47, me as well! So many times I've forgotten my ereader or current book, I've been so glad I can read on my phone. What does one do when they have no book??? (edited) 2d
OrangeMooseReads @JenlovesJT47 I don‘t have Kindle on my phone, I may have to put it on. I always forget about Serial Reader. I put that on my phone specifically for times I forget my book or the wait is longer than planned. 2d

Oooof.

Not sure I‘m up for writing a coherent review, but yes, I will be reading whatever Tommy Orange writes next. I love his writing, his big-picture histories, and his characters, his ability to make us care about each of them in the space of a short-story.

The chaos of the end- so stressful, so well done, but I‘m glad he didn‘t tie things up too tidily. Connected, messy lives- still connected, still messy, maybe different.

Still. Ooof.

squirrelbrain I loved this one too! ❤️ 5d
RachelO @squirrelbrain Somehow I didn‘t expect that ending, even though it had been building up to it from the start. 5d

Since this is a #LocalAuthor for me, I am also using this mystery as my #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge book for #USA- though most of the action is in #Chicago- there are also some scenes in surrounding states! I enjoyed this book- told mainly from two perspectives- sheltered Alice and more worldly Merrily, their lives intersect over a missing person and a lifetime of secrets begin to unravel! It‘s hard to put down and definitely entertaining!

8little_paws Is the author chicago based I take it? 1w
TorieStorieS @8little_paws Yes, indeed! 😃 Though Milwaukee and Indiana are also featured here! 1w

1. The tagged book. It‘s a lot to digest at a time so I‘ve been moving through it slowly.
2. Crafting and eating ... eating is a hobby, right?
3. Not sure probably something light and easy. I‘m an emotional reader so whatever title strikes my fancy when I finish my current read.

Such an important read, especially in light of the resurgence of white supremacy in the US. This story proves that only love and acceptance can drive out racism and hatred.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
