And She Was: A Novel | Cindy Dyson

A day-drinking cocktail waitress who lands in remote Dutch Harbor, Alaska may not be your ideal heroine, but if you give Brandy a chance, this book is both an exploration of forgiving unreliable parents & a fascinating look at 3 Aleut Alaskan women ready to kill for their village and their tribe. Good reading for my recent bucket-list Alaska cruise! #alaska #remotesetting #unique #Aleutcharacters #drinkingnarrator

#BBRC #A2Z wrap up! I read 54 picture books; it was hard to stop at just one for most letters! Tagged a favorite, but almost everything was a solid 👍read.

I love the growing diversity in picture books. Characters included LGBT, Muslim, deaf, PoC, immigrants, Jewish, blended families, strong female characters, and more! Topics include: white privilege, poverty, segregation, the immigrant experience, and inclusive fairy tale retellings. 💜

LibrarianRyan Yeahhh. co grata!!!!!!!!!! 6mo

Aww, I loved this bilingual story about a young girl who embraces her uniqueness and love for things that don‘t match. Inspired by the author‘s experience growing up biracial, with red hair and brown skin, and told in both Spanish and English. This story is a gentle reminder to kids that it is okay to dance to the beat of their own drum.

Cathythoughts What a crazy brilliant cover 6mo

The pictures alone make this a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 read! I think I spent 5 minutes just gazing at the cover, absorbing the different glasses, clothes, bodies, facial expressions. Little text, but big impact. Sporty is represented by a person with a prosthetic leg, which I 💜. Dedication was also 👍👍.

I would certainly try the olive, pickle and green bean sandwich.... but definitely not the banana cottage cheese delight. 🤣🤣#BBRC #A2Z @LibrarianRyan #picturebooks ♥️

LibrarianRyan I like cottage cheese and applesauce. 7mo

3.5⭐️ This is standard and typical fare about being yourself. Over all it‘s nice. It has a Jamie Lee Curtis feel, but sometimes the rhymes come out harsh. I believe this to be because of how the illustrator highlighted certain words and phrases. It‘s beautiful, but that emphasis on a strong word may not be in the rhyming pattern therefor throwing it off. This story is quite nice, but not destined to become a classic.

I suppose you could say this was a #unique read for mystery #bookclub because a giant bomb isn‘t your standard murder weapon (Thank God!!), and it also fulfills the #newtoyou author prompt. I‘m not sure if I‘ll read anything else of his, but it was a@real page turner.

Photo is a unique plant we saw at the botanical garden. “Blue tango”

Susanita Oh snap! Upon further research, I discovered that he isn‘t a new author for me after all. 😳 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 12mo
