Girl, Woman, Other | Bernardine Evaristo

Loved this (bar the only reference to bisexuality being about it being a phase hmm) about the variety of black British womens experiences. What really struck me was how beautifully everything linked up, how everyone‘s lives came together to form something bigger, and the ending which I won‘t give away about connection, legacy and identity which was so satisfying and touching. I‘d love for this to make the shortlist. #bookerprize2019 longlist 9/13

Megabooks You‘re screaming through that list! #impressed! 3mo
rwmg I enjoyed her "The Emperor's Babe" so I'll be rooting for her. 3mo

#Hr36challenge for the #24in48 #readathon is a #LiteraryLoot theme. This is just a fraction of the swag I have in my library, since I got sick(er)it‘s in s bit of chaos, so a lot is buried. I‘m very proud of my Potterverse loot, including Hermiones wand that the hubby recently bought me. I‘m also proud of my pin flag & my bookmark obsession is still going strong.

LauraJ Nice swag! (edited) 4mo

Here is the steps I walked yesterday with my fur children. I also swam and did some canoeing. According to the conversation chart I should add another 2,610 for the canoeing and 2,715 for the swimming. It seems high so I am adding 2,500 to my total and call it fair. Total is 9,486!

jillannjohn Nice! 5mo
wanderinglynn I think you underestimated you other activities. Canoeing & swimming both take effort. You are doing great! 🙌🏻 Way to go! 5mo
TheDaysGoBy You had a great, active day! 5mo

“Against Happiness”

“At-risk youth - a tribe apart.
Unequal childhoods, savage inequalities.
Scattered. Lost. Fear overload.
Amazing Grace.”

TheSpineView Love how you were able to incorporate so many things into one post! Very imaginative! 💜💜 5mo
LiterRohde @TheSpineView Thanks. It‘s started with the spine poetry. My mind is still on teaching (it was a rough year) so that‘s what I decided to write about. I‘m not exactly a poet. Whether it fits all the other prompts, I‘m not sure if it fits them all perfectly, but I tried. It made sense to me. (edited) 5mo

The Similars | Rebecca Hanover
post image

An elite high school is thrown into a tailspin when 6 cloned students are invited to attend the school. These students‘ “originals” are attending as juniors and seniors at the school. When they turn into each other, it sparks all kinds of mayhem

This was highlighted as a buzz worthy YA book at BEA. Honestly it was all rather silly and way too predictable. The premise is interesting but so predictable as to send me into fits of eye rolling.

JenP I will say that despite the fact that is was painfully lacking in subtlety, I still felt entertained at times. It probably will be a blockbuster 1y
Cinfhen Great review!! Well done 😄you‘re making early progress #booked2018 #impressed ❣️ 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Interesting premise. Too bad it was still a pan! 1y
BookHoarder32 I agree, the entertainment value lay in the ridiculousness of it all. 12mo

A Skinful of Shadows | Frances Hardinge
post image

I‘ve never read any Frances Hardinge before, but WOW was this good!! This is technically a Children‘s/YA book, but honestly I‘d recommend to anyone of any age. The writing is gorgeous, the characters are vivid, and the storytelling and magical realism element are totally unique. I had the pleasure of meeting Frances at Hay this year, & she is absolutely delightful - when she signed my book, she drew a goose! #author #impressed

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront
post image

Hello! I‘m new here, and I am stoked 😍 I am a 90s baby, a hippy dippy mom who apparently uses words like “stoked” 🤦🏻‍♀️
Anywho... I love classics, and anything Jane Austen, or Bronte! Of course It‘s rare that I find a book I don‘t like. My husband got me 20+ books for Christmas 😍 so I‘ll be posting about them. I‘m stoked to be able to share my thoughts and comments!
Also- I write in my books 💁🏻‍♀️ used books with inscriptions are my fav❤️

BookishMe Welcome to Litsy 👋🏾 👋🏾 #LitsyWelcomeWagon 2y
BookishMe Your 'Have Read' seems more than 'To Read' 👍🏽👍🏽 #Impressed look forward to your sharing! 2y
Amabear @BookishMe thank you! It‘s defiantly a full shelf! They are books I‘ve collected and read and decided to keep through years of growing up and such! Iv read wayyyy more. But these are all keepers. 2y
