#OutstandingOctober #Readathon

As of this evening, I have finished Kill Our Sins #HiddenNorfolkMurderMystery and Our Lady of Pain #EdwardianMurderMystery, read The Heart Principle #literati #audacious #RoxaneGay for 60 minutes, started listening to A Useful Woman (2 chs) #1 #audio, and began reading Tell No Tales #HiddenNorfolkMurderMysteries.
I can tell I am needing escapism & easy reading.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 11mo
Ruthiella Who doesn‘t need escapism from time to time! 😅 Books have everything. 11mo
kspenmoll @Ruthiella So true! Thank you! 11mo

I love it when widely successful authors dox a college student for voicing an opinion in a random article! That f*cking b*tch indeed.
If you‘re as interested as I am in YA Twitter Drama and you want to shorten your TBR of bullying authors, this is the article for you:

LiteraryinLawrence Wow, I had somehow missed this whole controversy. Now I‘m up to date. Thanks! 3y
Megabooks Wow! You think these authors would be a bit more mature. Very disappointed in all of them for waaayyy over attacking this girl. It‘s one thing to legitimately argue why a YA pick would be good for college students, another thing to call someone a f*cking bitch for having a different opinion. 3y
LazyLibrary I found it disgusting what they did on social media. I took this book off my list Bc of it 3y
AnansiGirl Thank you for sharing. It‘s sickening seeing respected adult authors behave this way. As several people pointed out on twitter these women should prove how apologetic they are and donate to helping the now graduate pay off her loans. 3y

This was a rather intense book, and as much as I loved it I may not suggest it for everyone. It is a memoir of a woman who has faced severe trauma, and as a result has struggled with her body. As an “overweight”, black woman in America, I could relate to much of what she spoke of in this book— though of course her experience is her own. It broke my heart, and reminded me how important it is for books like this to be written. 🍰 #RoxaneGay #Hunger
