I have been searching for a book like this, this beautiful book about Aloha, a culture, and a people not smothered by colonialism.
A real Hawai'i.

New set of picks from Book Riot‘s TBR service. I have never heard of this, but apparently this is the most read book in Canada. Looks interesting.

shaynarae I‘m so curious about Book Riot‘s TBR. What do you think of it so far? 4y
Lauren.Archer @shaynarae I am a little mixed on this. My first picks left a lot to be desired but on that note I totally understood why they picked the books they did. They gave me someone new to pick my recommendations so I am super hopeful. Just the blurbs sound way better to me this time around. 4y
TelevisionNeighbor I‘m always blown away at the number of books and other things I‘ve never heard of but are so popular it‘s like how did I miss this. Definitely adding this to my TBR. 4y

Jolynne This, is one of my #alltimefave books. I‘m glad to see Indigenous authors being recommended, they are often not visible in mainstream media. 4y
Jolynne I also do the TBR, my first round was okay and this second round seems iffy. We shall see. 4y
Reviewsbylola This one is new to me too! 4y
CouronneDhiver This is my all time favourite author... he was an outstanding storyteller 🖤 4y

One of the sad things about this book (and there are many) is that the people who would benefit most from it will never read it.
This was an amazing read, there‘s nothing particularly happy in the book and I feel very flat and sad now, it‘s basically heart breaking, but I‘m glad I read it 🤷‍♀️ This is an important read.
Thank you Amy 😘

Cinfhen Very timely read!!! 4y
Katerina Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Although I'm not American, I think there are parallels to other countries as well. 4y
TrishB @Cinfhen very 😔 4y

TrishB @Katerina I‘m not American either - it translates well across all countries with immigration. 4y
Cailey_Mac Definitely adding this to my tbr. 4y
AmyG My pleasure. I am glad you “enjoyed” it. 4y

Creadnorthey On my list but maybe I‘ll wait for a string of guaranteed sunny days. 4y
That-Bookish-Hiker This book made me cry so hard. And I still think about it. One of my favorites of this year. 4y
Jolynne This is one of my favorite books. #alltimefave 4y
TrishB @Cailey_Mac @heidifk @Creadnorthey hope you get as much from it as I did. 4y
TrishB @That-Bookish-Hiker @Jolynne I don‘t think I expected it to be so sad - a real punch in the guts. Amazing read. 4y
Cedricsmom @AmyG that's always the way it is, seemingly. So we stay divided. 4y
alisiakae This has been on my TBR for a while! 4y

Louise White Elk and Baptiste Yellow Knife, beautiful, strong and courageous lovers hell bent on self destruction. Both wanting only to survive brutality and prejudice. #alltimefave

JazzFeathers This has been on my TBR list forever. So it's a good one? 5y
Jolynne It is very good. 5y

Stunning! I wanted to finish this before it won the so deserving NBA but I was a few hours too slow. So much to think about and so much to feel. #alltimefave

What an incredible story of survival!

As my journey to read all Richard Wagamese‘s writings progress I can‘t help but feel the sadness of knowing that he is gone. #alltimefave
