This book helped me realize how narrow my definition of slavery in America was— a compelling read that showcases the vast differences in the slave experience among various states.

Took me quite a while to get into, but once I was, I was hooked! I recommend reading this one in as few sittings as possible. 🤓

I...I have no idea what I just read. 😳
That was the trippiest book I've ever read.

My first Bhutanese novel! Enjoyed reading this while in Bhutan and learning about the country and female roles through the eyes of Tsomo.

Heatwaves call for ice cold Arnold Palmers and staying indoors reading! I never got around to reading The Help back in the day, but I'm glad I am now.

Skip the movie and read the book! A raw, real look at what life looks like during death and the search to find a new normal.

I enjoyed this book more as I got further into it. I could've lived without all the references to her lover and her frequent digs at Christianity... But this is her memoir and she can do as she pleases. Overall, an interesting look into a slice of North Korea that no one gets to see.

I remember reading the epilogue of Book 7 and thinking, "What the?! Is this fan fiction?"... I felt the same about Cursed Child, although I did enjoy the last third(ish) of the play. Even so, would love to see it in London! ??I'm curious how they're pulling off all the magical special effects... ⚡️

Overall: No regrets reading it, but probably will stick to the books. ?

A bit of a dark read and I thought it dragged on much too long, but the last 30 pages or so added value.

Orbeck33 Totally agree. 3y
