Going to my first IRL bookclub at my library. No idea what to expect. Topic book club and the topic this month was Mountain. Also mailed my #spookysummerswap yesterday @Bookwormjillk @paperwitchs Also, I‘m hoping we can show what the Majority of Americans want at the polls. Also I hope everyone is able to feel safe and loved in whatever body and space they are in.

Chelleo Hope your book club meeting goes well and is better than expected 5h

Another thriller that I really enjoyed. A boarding school with an elite group of students with cuestionable morale. Family drama with a disappearance of a family member, a suicide, betrayals and a murder. Is everything connected? Who is lying? What would you do just to keep your image and power? Is everything related with this elite group? It was a fast read. I couldn‘t put it down. A particular situation was so unrealistic to me. 3.8/4⭐️

Gissy I finished this one this week for June 2022 #Buzzword (all) @Booksandlala YouTuber

OK, so I can't find two of my July #roll100 hits---a genre-blending Verso Books London Jenny Hval volume, and a guide through the economic depression of the 1990s by an analyst from India---so, here's some other progressive economics I either need to get to finish (one of them just ordered from 7Stories Press); and my third hit, #75, a middle-grade by a Latina author. And some library loans.

A feel good coming of age novel set in #Eswatini (former Swaziland). Two teenage girls with completely different backgrounds are brought together on boarding school. There is a lot of racism and prejudices but once they get to know each other, they have much more in common than they thought.

Librarybelle Oh! Jane Austen inspired! 3d
LeahBergen This sounds good 👍 3d
BarbaraBB @Librarybelle I was wrong… I meant Jane Eyre 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d

A mixed race girl, Adele, who was always been in the popular group, has been nudged out of the group & must share her dorm room and school year with a poor girl who‘s always the butt of everyone‘s gossip and ill will. Through good times (reading Jane Eyre together) & bad (enduring the popular girls‘ bullying), they become best friends. As frustrating as Adele is at the beginning of the book, I think she is described perfectly—what I think her ⬇️

Texreader reality was like always trying to fit into the popular crowd. And we see her growth to a beautiful dynamic ending that I don‘t think you can fully appreciate unless you listen to the audiobook. I learned a lot about the racism in #Swaziland and what life must be like there. Recommended. #readingafrica2022 7d
BarbaraBB Great review. I‘m about to start this one. 7d
Texreader @BarbaraBB I hope you enjoy it. I struggled with the first half or so because Adele is really very annoying for a good long time. But it served its purpose for the story and was worth it. 7d
Librarybelle Great review, as always! 7d

Mehso-so

3 stars, This was creepy AF. It was okay, I liked most of the characters but I don't think we got enough of Sumera or Simon. Only the two very main characters were properly developed. I also thought the final fight scene was way too drawn out.
