When We Were Birds | Ayanna Lloyd Banwo

I rally liked this novel. It's told from the point of view of Yejide and Darwin. Both of them deal with conflicts within their family. It's a story of loneliness and love with a ghost story and magic realism as well. The rhythm of the prose took a little getting used, but by the end it was flowing along.

#WyrdAndWonder day 14: a book within a book

I love stories featuring storytelling; but I can‘t go past AJ Hackwith‘s Hell‘s Library trilogy for this prompt. A universe of untold stories and characters stepping out of their unwritten pages to save afterlives.

shanaqui One day, I really will get round to reading that series. >.> 3d

I‘m not setting any goals for the #MarvellousMay #Readathon, except to get some reading done for #WyrdAndWonder. My mom is in the hospital and then will have to be transferred to a PT/Rehab facility, so I don‘t know how much reading I‘ll get done.
Thanks again, @Andrew65, for hosting. 🙂

bthegood I hope all goes well with your mom🤗 5d
Andrew65 Sending best wishes for you and your mom. Take care. 😍 5d

The House of Rust: A Novel | Khadija Abdalla Bajaber
post image
Mehso-so

I really wanted to love this book, and it had a good beginning. However, the author didn‘t do as well with the ending. It was well-written, yet the House of Rust didn‘t even come into play until the last 60 pages. The ending was rather ambiguous about what was going to happen. It was nice to read a fantasy set in Africa, though

#marvellousmay starts Saturday! And perfect timing because I have many, many books sitting in various piles waiting to be read.

My goal: read at least 3 books from my #WyrdAndWonder stack

Andrew65 Good luck, have a great Readathon. 😊 5d

#WyrdAndWonder day 12: step into another‘s shoes

I love reading about epic adventures, but if I‘m going to trade places with fearless protagonists I‘d rather step into the shoes of one of the Camherst girls: Isabella or granddaughter Audrey. You get to study dragons (or the Draconean language), enjoy indoor plumbing and get up the nose of the establishment - sounds right up my street!

#WyrdAndWonder day 11: weapon of choice

I‘m going slightly left field for today‘s prompt with a book named for a weapon that has been on my TBR for far too long (I‘ll get to it, I swear. One day) - Battleaxe by Aussie author Sara Douglass
