Important issues in this book. A must read, I think.

Rai is quickly becoming a favorite author. All the audiobooks are so wonderful and I am a sucker for a cute, cartoon cover.

I think I am reading this series backwards. I know it doesn‘t really matter; still loving Alisha Rai!! Just cut the grass and sitting outside enjoying the cool evening.

This is a reread for me and I‘ve forgotten most of the stories. I only remember the one told from the dog‘s point of view. My favorites so far this time around are the ones which take place in the sex toy shop and the health clinic.

Loved this story, loved the author‘s note too. I think this is the graphic novel cover, though I listened on audio.

There are so many striking covers of this book. This isn‘t the one I have, but it‘s wonderful.

BookwormM Ohh that is a clever cover I love it 3mo
DimeryRene @BookwormM There‘s one that has a broken face on it, looks like a plate that shattered. That one was my second favorite! 3mo

I thought I loved the first cover design. I love this one even more. In this one Binti goes back home after her first semester at university. She brings a friend. 🐙

I came to this book for the main hook: a young boy falls into the sea which is currently full of sharks, but instead of being harmed, he is gently delivered back to his family on a boat. After that initial encounter he is seen as housing old Gods within him, he‘s some sort of deity now. This story is more about what that treatment of him by his parents does to his siblings. What do you do when there is a clear favorite child your family?

Chelsea.Poole Nice review! I read this last year and it‘s really stayed with me. 4mo
DimeryRene @Chelsea.Poole I think I will come back to thinking about this book a lot. I have two siblings and a story about sibling relationships always resonates with me! 4mo

DimeryRene @sprainedbrain Yes! I live in Texas and hadn‘t ever been to Arkansas. I guess they call it the natural state for a reason. There were so many trees! 6mo

I‘ll read the next book for sure. I liked this one okay! I think I was distracted and it took me too long to read. Maybe would have liked it better if I wasn‘t so stressed and in grad school!

I went to Jenny Lawson‘s bookstore last weekend. It was incredible and I got to meet her and chat a little. I love all her books, and it was very special. 😭😭😭

Cinfhen She owns a bookstore??? Where??? That‘s too awesome 🤩 Did you know @Megabooks @britt_brooke I feel like she would have discussed that in her books yet I have no memory of her mentioning that 🙄 11mo
