My youngest niece and I read this book. It outlines some classic middle school "mean girl" dynamics and has a good moral. We enjoyed it!

Melissa_J My daughter is reading this one right now 😊 2d
Autumnscribe Sounds like exactly what my daughter needs. With any luck it will help...there are a lot of mean girls in jr. High. 2d
Bibliogeekery @Autumnscribe ugh! Sorry to hear that. Mean girl stuff is so difficult! 2d

This was a cute, short, sweet book written for bookworms. I wanted a bit more from it but still enjoyed it on a rainy day at the cottage. It had me reflecting on my own history as a lifelong book lover in a pleasant way. 📚😍

This was my least favourite of the Cormoran Strike books - which is not to say I didn't like it - just that they will, won't they between Robin and Strike is just dragging on too long and not terribly interesting to me. I did quite like the mystery part of it though.

Crudo: A Novel | Olivia Laing

Pickpick

This book was a short, quirky, delightful read. Part memoir woven into a biography of Kathy Acker (I said it was quirky) Crudo takes us through the anxieties of living through Trump's election and the climate breakdown in exquisite, raw and very relatable ways. I already want to read it again.

This was such a powerful and well written book. A boat of Sri Lankan refugees appears near Vancouver and Sharon Bala takes us through the narratives of some of the refugees, the immigration lawyers representing them, and the adjudicator. She skillfully portrays the complexity of Sri Lanka and create nuanced, intersectional characters. This book provides such important humanity and insight into the plight of refugees. Highly recommend!

This was an enjoyable short story collection. I regret that I engaged with it as an audiobook because I found myself losing track of what was going on at points and I think that was more about me than the stories. I might revisit it in print. Lovely to insights into Montreal over time.

This book was such an eye-opener for me. Levine's approach to understanding trauma is so different from classic ideas about trauma and trauma treatment. He outlines how trauma is such an embodied experience and that treating it must also be an embodied experience. It's making me rethink my therapeutic work! #therapistreads

Homes: A Refugee Story | Abu Bakr al Rabeeah, Winnie Yeung
post image
Pickpick

This was an excellent book. It is the story of Abu Bakr and his family who moved to Syria from Iraq for a better life and eventually came to Canada as refugees as life in Syria became more and more dangerous. This book blends the atrocities of war with sweet recollections of friendship and family love. It is a book that really humanizes refugees and the hugely difficult decisions they have to make to stay safe. Highly recommend!

This story was about profound love, trauma, addiction, racism, healing, incarceration and all the painful ways these things interact with each other. It was gutting and sweet, paradoxically. I listened to the audiobook and I think this would be better in print. I was confused about the timelines and characters for a bit (one is a ghost!) I read an outline online and that sorted me out!

A rare case of the movie being better than the book for me! I still enjoyed this weird little foray into Lee Israel and her celebrity forgery business. It's so interesting to see how proud she was of her letter-writing, attributing her skill at it to her background as a biographer and how very little remorse she expresses for her crimes. A quick, interesting read! #queerbooks

This was a raw, honest, generous memoir from Roxane Gay. She discusses how thoroughly and devastatingly she was impacted by a terrible sexual assault when she was 12 (I feel like I'm the last person to read this but if you haven't mega content warning!). She talks about her body, her fatness, the ways that the world treats fat people and her pathway to healing from trauma. Powerful read! #queerbooks
