Heartbreaking graphic nonfic about a woman's experience being a comfort woman to Japanese soldiers during WW2. Hard to read at times but definitely an important history to learn.

This was both what I was expecting and exactly NOT what I was expecting. I'm not too good with stream of conscious and soc adjacent books and it tends to be a killswitch for me.

I love this book so hard. Short but fun and packed with the THING I love that Scalzi brings to his writing. Definitely recommend it for a lighthearted romp.

I've just started this and wow it's so good! My copy is nearly falling apart but if I love it I'll probably invest in one that is in one piece.

Finished this one yesterday. It's not quite what it says it is and is more of a memoir of Totenberg that frequently mentions RBG. Yes, they were friends, but the title and what it implies leaves a bad taste in my mouth when it's really just a memoir of the author's own life. Still had interesting information and I'm glad I listened to it.

Starting this one.

I've been using dice to roll for what books to read next to get through books I've had for so long but haven‘t gotten to. Really is helping me get rid of the tbr 🤣🤣

But anyway, I hadn't planned on being able to finish this but I'm home from work sick. So.

Either the lawyer is lying to the daughter or the author is very confused about what white collar crime is. I hope it's the former 😬😬😬

New cozy. Enjoying it so far.

I'm trying to wittle down the amount of cozy series I have/am reading (there are so many) so I think I'll finish the books I own in this series and then stop. Nothing really against it, just the construction cozy isn't my thing 😊

I wanted to have sympathy for the mc but knowing that her position is mostly missing a time when anyone not pale(white) and upper/middle class was treated like vermon makes it hard to feel much of anything.

I must confess this book was assigned reading in uni and I didn't read it. I just finished it and I ust say I disliked it. Not even for the racism and misogyny. It was written in 63 and I expect those to be there. But it was just overall not remotely the best commentary I've heard on mental health institutions and them vs us/person vs system.

At this point I feel like I'm working through classics so I can say exactly WHY I hate them.

Getting ready to finish this one. Gonna be a 5 star. Loved The Untamed and I love this book.
