Just finished this for #dungeonsofreaders challenge (an idea of an italian tiktoker) and I liked it.
Not the best one by Matthew Quick so far, but still a good one!
I guess I will start Gone with the wind very soon 💪🏻🤟🏻

The Arsenal Stadium Mystery | Leonard Gribble
Mehso-so

A so-so in relation to other British Library Crime Classics mysteries. I liked the setting and idea of the actual 1939 Arsenal side as characters, but the Arsenal side didn‘t do very much; the focus was more on the amateur team playing against them. I also thought this felt more like the 1970s, but that is probably because I watched Season 8 of Endeavour recently 😆

MrsK You‘re so right! Not one of the #BritishLibraryCrimeClassics better choices to reprint 👎 1mo
rabbitprincess @MrsKinvestigates Oh well, it should do pretty well as a trade-in at my local used bookstore! A friend traded in some and got a very good amount of credit on them. 1mo

It was a joy to write this full length review of Bitta Lundin's excellent YA novel from last year! It's about football, teen butch lesbian identity, internalized misogyny, feminist solidarity, and more. If you read my Litsy review last week you know already that I loved it!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK! There is a lot going on in Like Other Girls – effortlessly and deftly balanced, by the way – but at its core it's a story about a closeted butch lesbian teen struggling with and overcoming internalized misogyny. Also: lots of football, female friendship and solidarity, swoony romance, intergenerational queer mentorship, masculine of centre gender expression, anger management, and a whole lot of personal growth.

Fuck her mom and her blackmailing her kid into wearing a dress she doesn't want to so that she can play a sport she wants to play. I was just listening to a podcast about gender affirming parenting and this is the exact opposite!!

This book just made me mad. It was extremely hypocritical the entire time. The entire purpose of this writing was 1) dismantling gender norms, and yet all of the characters are continually using phrases like “girly” and “tomboy” which just induces gender stereotypes and 2) proving that feminine girls aren‘t inherently weaker than boys. Yet the MC thinks that the volleyball team doesn‘t take the sport seriously because they wear make up to ⬇️

Zoe-h practice. Also, the whole time they are ⬆️ragging on the football couch for being sexist (and I mean he was but it wasn‘t obvious at this point) just because he didn‘t teach high school junior girls how to throw a football when they showed up to tryouts. Annoying. 2⭐️ 3mo
