The Island | Armin Greder
post image

#MayMovieMagic Day 8: #GimmeShelter says this foreigner in ”The Island.” In return, he experienced glaring xenophobia and outright rejection. While most of the stories we have featured for our immigrant theme share narratives of assimilation and a renegotiation of one‘s identity, this ‘foreigner‘ was never given that opportunity to even feel remotely a sense of belonging. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-40F - a truly harrowing picturebook.

rohit-sawant This sounds heartbreaking. 4mo

This was def one of my #stranger reads from 2018 but I thoroughly enjoyed every page! If you‘re a fan of “You” by Caroline Kepnes, you should check this one out!

Stranger in a Strange Land | Robert A. Heinlein
post image

Sometimes I zip through IT tasks without a care; other times I feel like a #stranger in a strange land. I‘m about to throw my work computer out the window, so I‘m too frustrated now to keep butting heads with this #20things request. (I‘ve enjoyed reading everyone else‘s, though!)

So here are a few things:
-Litten since July 2016
-Live in Maryland
-Mystery fan

New followers: I‘m flattered! But please make a post as #proofoflife


LibrarianRyan 👍🏻😁🤓 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m with you and totally agree!! 8mo

The Little Stranger | Sarah Waters

I loved this book. There‘s something unsettling and eerie about the mansion and the story, especially the ending, but it‘s not a ghost story. It‘s slow burn and if you submit to its unhurried pace, you‘ll be rewarded with something elegant and mysterious.

Cathythoughts I loved this book too 👍🏻♥️♥️ 8mo
vkois88 I love the cover. It already instills the chills... 8mo
