@CSeydel headed home! I didn't necessarily "enjoy" it, but Baldwin didn't write to entertain; he wrote to make you think. This was a masterclass in characterization. With depictions of the Black church, family rallying together for the birth of a child, Black love & the policing of Black bodies, I was in awe of the writing. Some things didn't age well, lack of chapters at times made it difficult to digest,& I wanted more closure at the end. 3.5⭐️s

Jee_HookedOnBookz I've received your book from @arubabookwoman, Kaleah! Thank you Deborah! @lele1432 Kaleah, I might take a little longer than usual to finish it. Is that OK with you? 3mo

Well, #LMPBC #Round5 #GroupD kind of sizzled out. I‘m not sure where we ended up. I mailed my book (Maid) to @BookishMarginalia back in March. April would have been LazyDays‘ book. She sent me @WanderingBookaneer‘s book (Off the Rails) in May, which I read and passed along as well. I didn‘t ever receive Gloria‘s book for June. I think life happens. 🤷‍♀️ It was still fun. Will you ladies send along my book when you get a chance?

BookishMarginalia 🙁It fizzled but didn‘t die. End of school year is always tough for teachers. Until the 21st there was summer school, then we spent the week at a teacher training and today we leave for three weeks overseas. We‘ll mail to you at the beginning of August. Thank you for your understanding. 4mo
thebluestocking @BookishMarginalia Oh man. I can only imagine how hard the end of the school year can be! I‘m not too worried about it. I just had the end of the round on my calendar and thought I‘d follow up. 😀💙 Enjoy your trip! (edited) 4mo
BookishMarginalia Thanks! 💜 4mo
thebluestocking @BookishMarginalia Hey! I hope the school year is shaping up well. Will you send my book back when you get a chance? Thanks!! 4w
BookishMarginalia Will do! Sorry about that! 4w

Sorry for the delay but this is headed your way Carrie!

I'm not entirely sure what I just read lol. Equal parts anti-war satire, social critique, musings on family & dealing with grief, ending with a fever dream of revelations...this book was indeed weird & lacked cohesiveness, but I like weird books! I've heard his non-fiction reads better. He has some powerful 1-liners & I felt some emotion towards the end, so I do see potential! Maybe ⭐️⭐️💫?

CSeydel Ack, I need to get a move on - I‘m still reading 4mo
lele1432 @CSeydel I did feel like that one needed a lot of focus to take it all in! 4mo
