Finished this yesterday. I think I said this as soon as I started it, but this is my fave SMG.
Rereading this for spooky season. My first time reading on audio and it‘s incredible.
More kids‘ books with trans characters, please! 🏳️⚧️ This is a gentle book about a kid who had a brother but now has a sister. It rhymes, it‘s light, it mostly talks about how his sister is all the same things, just had a different first name. Real nice, real age appropriate, just a cute one.
Obsessed with this multi POV story so far. Got one chapter from everyone at this point.
Liked this one! I‘ve been in the mood for westerns lately since reading the American hippo novellas.
Soft pick for me! Liked it better than the second one for sure though! I think maybe I‘m not the target for a cozy mystery. The description of food really gets in the way of the mystery for me. I did, however like the mystery and I‘ve always loved all the characters.
I‘ve only seen glowing praise for this story so far. I did enjoy it, but really didn‘t love it like everyone seemed to. The narrator and mc, Sam was entertaining and I liked being in her head. The neighbors and mother were fine and the grandmother was interesting. The ending just fell really flat and it all came together so quickly. Too easy for me.
Definitely a must read for those who consider themselves feminists or claim to care about all women. We all have blind spots, internalized racism, and prejudice. Even if we are constantly working to combat those things, we still live in a society that values white, straight, able-bodied, and not poor individuals over all others and we need to constantly be uplifting voices of those society doesn‘t seek to protect. This is our fight too.
This is a wonderful look inside one woman‘s life as she struggles with the best way to love three members of the same family; a husband, a wife, and their young son. Nora is obsessed with each person in a different way and working out why and if they are as equally obsessed with her is fascinating. A book about art, education, aging, friendship, and deciding your own fate.
.. white feminism is going to have to get comfortable with the idea that until they challenge their racist aunts, parents, cousins, and so on, it is definitely all white women who are responsible. ✊🏻✊🏼
