“I am surrounded by forgotten women.”

I swear I didn‘t do this on purpose…but, damn if that isn‘t timely.

I see you getting things you don't deserve, living it up.

This book has the same kind of narrating style as Joe in You. I'm only 15% in but I'm enjoying it so far.

“We slept in what had once been the gymnasium.” -Atwood. The ominous tone of this story of women valued only for their fertility is frighteningly appropriate! Anyone who can get pregnant in America lost today. People of color and poor folks will of course pay the highest price. Rape survivors will be re-victimized when forced to carry their rapist‘s child. Women will die. Welcome to America. #firstlinefridays #reproductivehealthcare

Cap Joyce was a cowboy who ran an Arizona dude ranch called the Spur Cross because acting like a cowboy, for tourists, was more lucrative than the actual herding of cattle.... He was my great-grandfather.

There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Ilúvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made.

In the Ghorami household sex was never mentioned. If the television was on & a kissing-with-tongues scene threatened the chaste & cardamom-scented home, it was swiftly terminated. . . . When Yasmin began her first period her mother had slipped her a pack of . . . pads & murmured instructions not to touch the Quran. This was confusing because Yasmin never touched the Quran anyway, except at the behest of her mother.

Riding shotgun beneath the clouds in a rattling De Havilland Otter, George Plafker gazed down upon an Alaska he‘d never seen before.
