The Secret Life of Bees | Sue Monk Kidd

Justifying today's #bookhaul by pointing out that these are all generally short books and are therefore equivalent to having only purchased one, maybe two, long books. Fair, right? 📚📚😆😆 I think I will start with The Secret Life of Bees!

JamieArc The Devil‘s Highway is excellent. I love Urrea‘s writing, fiction and non-fiction both. 1mo
BarbaraBB I just finished that one, it‘s lovely! Also - I loved The Reluctant Fundamentalist! 1mo

I've been sent home sick so I'm all wrapped up on the sofa, switching between watching netflix and starting Washington Black.

What an amazing book. Edugyan focuses on the title character, George Washington Black. The book opens on Wash's childhood on the Faith Plantation, where he comes to know Titch, his brother‘s owner, an eccentric scientist who recruits Wash. The book covers the next five years of Wash's life, which force him to consider his life, his freedom, & his place in the world. The writing is gorgeous, and Edugyan's portrayal of Wash is incredibly affecting.

What are the odds that on the very day of #ManBooker2018 shortlist announcement, one of the authors on the list is at my local #independentbookstore 👏🏽🙌🏽. What luck!! It was such a pleasure meeting Esi Edugyan and I‘m looking forward to reading WASHINGTON BLACK! Congrats Esi! 📚🥂

#2018ManBookerLonglist #Netgalley #WashingtonBlack

My first book from the Longlist and for me it was a 3.5 star book I enjoyed the adventure side of things but overall a lot of the things that happened felt unrealistic.

This is a thought provoking book about the idea of freedom and how humans treat each other.

Full review and panel ratings to appear here soon https://thereadersroom.org/

In #WashingtonBlack, Edugyan writes about slavery, race, and identity, but in the form of an adventure novel. A very accessible read for a #Booker nominee, but also intelligent story with some depth. #mbp2018 #manbooker2018 #finestfiction #indiebuddyreads #netgalley #arc

JenniferP I‘m not planning to read the whole Booker list but this is one that sounds intriguing to me. I don‘t think it‘s published in the US yet. 1y
MeikeReads @JenniferP They pushed the pub date forward due to its Booker nom - maybe you should check again to be sure, see whether it's available via kindle or apply for an ARC at Netgalley! :-) 1y
