BarbaraTheBibliophage
Trail of Lightning | Rebecca Roanhorse

Pickpick

This is fundamentally a good read, in its genre. A little too YA for me, but reminds me of the best parts of early Anita Blake books. Roanhorse could improve her skill at writing dialogue. But her vision of a post-climate catastrophe world is unique and interesting, especially the supernatural elements. Might borrow not buy book 2.

Cinfhen Since most disliked their #ClFi pick yay for you and this works for #IndigenousAuthor too ❤️ 3w
Addison_Reads Great review! I read this and enjoyed it, but I agree with your points on her dialogue. 3w
Susanita I agree the dialogue was awkward, and Maggie is a little two-dimensional, but I do want to see where the story goes. 3w

Susanita @Cinfhen I had picked American War originally, and I just couldn‘t get into it at all. 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Right! I already did my indigenous author book. The #clifi prompt has been a sword hanging over my head. Gone now! 👊🏻🤪 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Addison_Reads @Susanita Glad the dialogue discomfort wasn‘t just me being picky. 👊🏻 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Susanita @Cinfhen I definitely think #clifi is our collective #leastfavorite2020prompt. I had intended to read Oryx and Crake for this. Still want to give it a try. 3w

It‘s official...Angie Thomas and I are besties (she just doesn‘t know it yet). I was telling her that THUG was the first book where I saw myself in the Mom! The music references (Juvenile) made me feel officially old when I read it 😂🤣😂 She apologized 😂😂😂 She was great...if she‘s anywhere in driving distance...get in your car and go! #blacklitsy #blitsy #pocauthor #readdiversebooks #ownvoices

I really enjoyed this short novel set in Zimbabwe — the plot starts out relatively lighthearted and then amps up the stakes.

I have mixed feelings about the ending, which felt a bit abrupt and, in my opinion, wasn‘t fully satisfying in terms of consequences for one character‘s actions. Can‘t say anything else without getting into spoiler territory...

Been looking forward to this...here‘s hoping I don‘t end up in a serious #mood today. It‘s read by the author who‘s voice and pace work well in this audiobook format. I usually hate when authors read their own work. #blacklitsy #blitsy #ownvoices #readdiversebooks #blackgirlmagic #blacklivesmatter
