Binti | Nnedi Okorafor

I always want to love Okorafor. But in the end I usually am more confused with a bunch of questions then I am happy and entertained. There is no denying that her imagination and creativity is out of this world I personally need more story and depth to her works to really enjoy them.

The 50's style lingo felt a bit forced. I also did not enjoy what felt like a flow between the story telling, a diary entry and a loosing of the 4th wall. The writing style was a total miss for me while the story was almost too close to reality and the characters were interesting and diverse. So in all the book was a mixed bag for me.

Excellent and necessary. But not easy.

This was a beast of a book. 900 pages - 40 audio hours. I knew before going in that my American history is incredibly bad. But the thing I learned went far beyond Douglass' life.
Some of the criticism (especially of the women in his life) I found potentially problematic. I felt a lot of the authors opinions might have been better left out. But it did bring an extra layer of interest to the book. And a real reason to do more research.

Alice Walker. I mean what more can a person say. This collection has all the things you could want. Social commentary, humor (the first story has really stuch with me), sadness and just pure great writing.

Starting this, and a bit worried it is going to be over my head.

Got my signed first edition! The book is incredible, especially since it is based off a very real story you can research.
One of the more important novels to come out this year.

Persuasion | Jane Austen
post image

1) The Satanic Verses by Salmon Rushdie
2) Persuasion by Jane Austen (over and over again)
3) 484 (totally not kidding)
5) The Feather Thief 4 stars would recommend. It was facinating.
5) Meh I don't tag, I invite anyone who wants to to play.

I just finished and have all sorts of mixed feelings. I cannot believe I read an 800+ page book and literally felt nothing for any of the characters. Literally not a feel in sight, I used binoculars and found no. one.
The book was an easy read though and I appreciate that it is a stand alone, I wish more authors would do this for those of us who struggle with series.
The world building was impressive too.
Just literally no connection.

This took me a minute to get into. The writting felt a bit choppy and Simon can be a typically awful teen. But about half way through I fell totally in love with him. The story is cute, and clever - mixing emails and narration - and all of the characters are distinct and creative. By the end I was completely hooked and I am so sad it is now over.

The Secrets We Kept | Lara Prescott
post image

Starting this one - the Cold War, Russia, spying, and the book Doctor Zhivago.
Only 20% in. The writing is good, plot is everything I would want. I am having trouble keeping with who the characters are. Hoping I just need to dive in to figure it out.

ChaoticMissAdventures Finished! I see that it has been picked for Reese Witherspoons book club, I am excited to see what others think. Personally I think there were too many points of view (the few chapters from the men especially could be taken out) but the writing is good. It was a close hit but just didn't dI it in the end for me. 2w
