OK OK. Chesterton. I understand you predate the whole C.S. Lewis allegory juggernaut (I think). Seriously though. Is...what are you doing? Is it a Narnia adventure allegory, but for boys who wanted to be Inspector Lestrade? Or accountants? I am very Daniel Craig Knives Out about this.

Winter Holiday | Arthur Ransome
post image

I love that the Ransome Swallows & Amazons books are on Hoopla, I love that my library caved & joined Hoopla, it's awesome. This old-school children-roughing-for-the-heck-of-it British holiday stuff is what my brain needs right now.
That said. You guys. These kids are making my anxiety spike every other chapter. 😰

Blueberry I'm intrigued. 2y
TheAromaofBooks I've been reading through this series for the first time and I have completely fallen in love with them! I just read We Didn't Mean to Go to Sea and talk about stressful!!! 😂 2y
Bradleygirl @TheAromaofBooks I know right? it's so idyllic and then OH HELLO IMMINENT DEATH unless the kids wise up in time 😱
@Blueberry they're so delicious if, like, you want more Narnia kids but can do without the fantasy. And lots of descriptions of sailing. And can cope with it being a product of 1930s white male British nostalgia. (Fortunately not much sexism that I've seen so far)

Listening to this on Scribd audio b/c i'm too impatient for the e-library hold to come in - listening in 10-15 minute fits, and loving the (kind of difficult) west-African-accented narration, and it's **GOOD**
I'm only 20% through. 🤯

Ghost | Jason Reynolds
post image
Pickpick

Maybe cliche? but I finished this series about a group of 4 young track team members by Jason Reynolds this year, and it was so well worth it. I needed to hear those different voices in YA as someone who loves lots of classic YA literature (but it's nearly all about English/white kids).
#blackvoices (from @shyBookOwl)

ALSO this year some good ones (tagging below) 🔽

Bradleygirl Oreo by Fran Ross (retelling of Theseus myth, hilarious and arcane and weird) 2y
Bradleygirl Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis - so vivid and way sadder than I was prepared for, but still joyful 2y
ShyBookOwl I've heard good things about this one! Thx for sharing 😊 2y

Exit West: A Novel | Mohsin Hamid
post image

OK I didn't think this would be as interesting as it is, from some mixed reviews I read - it's very sparse of dialogue but it's working. Fable-like. I'm only 28% finished but this is encouraging.

I will admit. I was not prepared, on finally reading this (it's been on the list for years), to have it parallel a 21st century pandemic/quarantine lockdown & the varied reactions to it so faithfully. YIKES. (60% through)

I'm reading 2 delightful short books at the moment and it's nice. It's really nice, and restful.
(Also reading a Shakespeare history play and mideast spy history and fanfiction, because i cannot help myself. But having short sweet books is a wonderful break in all this.)
