A heartfelt story of friendship, motherhood and what constitutes a family. Betty is a single mother, raising her son with the help of her lodger & colleague; Mr. Chetan. When Betty shares a secret with Mr. Chetan the fallout threatens to destroy her relationship with her son. This book set in Trinidad contains all the flavors, colors, foods and energy of the Caribbean. I LOVED IT!!!! #Booked2022 #TitleRepeats #Pop22 #FoundFamily

Mehso-so

I really vacillated between rooting for Amy & disliking her. I can‘t say why. This memoir had some interesting bits but overall it was #MoreMehThanYeah and I didn‘t care much for the structural choices either. Amy a self taught chef lives off the grid with her boyfriend/ husband Aaron until one day she decides to move to NY to attend culinary school. #TriggerWarning if you don‘t consume meat this book is a hard swallow, even for meat eaters 😉

Cinfhen Curious to hear your thoughts after your done @Megabooks 😘 13mo
Cinfhen I feel like I might have bailed but since we were #BuddyListening I stayed with it and I‘m grateful for that, Meg. Thanks xxx @Megabooks 13mo
Megabooks It‘s a low pick for me so far. I‘m at 41%. I‘m not sure whether I‘ll finish today or tomorrow. I‘m such a mood reader, and like you said, this isn‘t particularly fantastic. I‘m glad you finished though. She‘s just moving back to MN where I‘m at now, so I think the meat parts are coming up! 13mo
TrishB Not for me then! 12mo
Cinfhen Definitely NOT for you @TrishB 12mo

Unpopular opinion: I listened to the first 10 or so chapters and didn't want to continue. #triggerwarning I think it was related to all the bad stuff happening to animals. The main character experiments on mice and does brain surgery on them, the mice get in a fight and one is basically left to die, her mother killed a baby bird that she and her brother saved, and someone threatens a dog with a rifle 👇

rjsthumbelina I don't actually know how the scene with the dog ends - I turned it off before finding out. Disappointing, bc I liked the other elements of the story. But this one just wasn't for me 2y

Just wanted to pass along booktriggerwarnings.com, which I was made aware of this weekend. I know that there is some content that affects my weak stomach, and since this is community based, I‘m sure at least some of us can help with adding information!

Breathtaking, heartbreaking, beautiful, powerful, intense, intimate... clearly written by a poet - this is not your run-of-the-mill ‚comming to america‘ narrative, but an authentic fresh perspective combining past vietnam war trauma with current american issues like immigration, queerness and the opiod crisis. A testament clearly written by a beautiful soul stuck in an ugly world! #triggerwarning

TrishB Not seen that cover before 👍🏻 2y
Heideschrampf @TrishB it‘s a small german publisher called ‚book guild gutenberg‘ that specializes in designy hardcovers for a very select catalogue. Like a less fancy folio society. 2y
TrishB Ah! That explains that, it looks lovely. I really enjoyed it too. 2y
Centique Beautiful cover! 2y
Tanisha_A I loved this book. That German edition is gorgeous 2y

Didn‘t see Be My Light by Nia Arthurs in the database. Wanted a distraction read. This dealt with sensitive subjects, but in an interesting way. Saw mixed reviews online, but few books are without critics. No, it wasn‘t perfect, but I liked it. Apparently towards the end of a series, but I could see reading the others, since they‘re also stand-alones. Sweet read.

5⭐️

Fortuna is faced with new obstacles, challenges and impossible decisions. Picking up right after the first book, we follow Fortuna as she steps into this new role while trying to protect her remaining family and “normal” life.

Check out my Goodreads review for my thoughts and also #triggerwarning : https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3239065538
