Marrying the Marquess | G. L. Snodgrass
post image

So, Anthony and I got married yesterday! As my last name is (and will continue to be) Marquess, the tagged book was perfect for this post. It was simple and sweet at the courthouse with my best friend and his sister by our sides. We are waiting until the photographer gets us photos to inform folks, but I wanted the Littens to know. We are off to a spa day this afternoon and counting down the days until our May 2022 Santorini honeymoon!

I loved this book and so did my students. They thought it was amazing. One of them, though, who works in a tiny town‘s grain elevator, found his copy in his work‘s trash can. His boss had thrown it away and said to keep that “communist bullshit in the trash.” What an ass. WBWQ is funny, moving, touching, and full of fun info on Brooklyn‘s queer history. It‘s a really approachable non-fic read and my students tell me the audio is fantastic.

mom2bugnbee Wait, what? 10mo
Hollie @mom2bugnbee right? The town is super conservative and the boss is like 80, but no reason to take a kid‘s homework and throw it in the trash. Not sure where the whole communism thing came in, either. 10mo
mom2bugnbee I guess that if you're queer you must be a Communist? Or if you're a Communist you must be queer? Asinine. 10mo
Hollie @mom2bugnbee we couldn‘t figure it out either. 10mo

These are my top 6 fiction books (of 43) I read in 2020. It was a difficult year for reading- I had to suddenly record all my lectures for 4 classes in March- then re-record them in August because I made them semester specific in March- I taught 2 extra classes this fall, and I researched/wrote an article so that took up a lot of time. Maybe next year, I‘ll have some more time to read outside of student papers- so many student papers!

A Promised Land | Barack Obama

Last week I got a text from Owen “have you read the new book by Brock Obama?” Then this present showed up, wrapped by his step mom. When I mentioned that Anthony was getting me a couple books he asked which ones (Chasten Buttigieg and Billy Jensen‘s) and then made me promise I wouldn‘t buy anything for myself because he‘s afraid I might buy what is in this box. I‘m pretty sure my boy picked out A Promised Land for me! Stay tuned on Xmas 🎄.

I‘m getting a remote start installed in Anthony‘s truck today and expected the shop to offer to take me to my office. They didn‘t. So, here I sit, waiting for 2-4 hours and I just heard the phrase “I seen” twice and “them seats.” Ugh. Good thing I put this book in my purse. Oh and did I mention they aren‘t wearing masks? Western Kansas is apparently deeply committed to idiocy.

Leftcoastzen Looks like an interesting read. 14mo
Hollie @Leftcoastzen I‘m not far in yet, but so far, it is! What makes her work even more groundbreaking is that many of these trans men lived in rural communities- LGBTQ historiography for so long as been centered on urban life and a “community” whereas these men desperately sought a more “normative” experience. 14mo
Leftcoastzen I read this one years ago , about an individual though 14mo

Hollie @Leftcoastzen that is weird!! Kansas is weird in general, though thankfully no one in my life does the negative/positive responses you‘ve just described. That would drive me crazy! 14mo
britt_brooke @Leftcoastzen My husband used to do that (when we first started dating 20ish years ago). He‘s a really smart person and I don‘t know where he picked it up. I broke him of it. 😂 He grew up on farms in IL and Ky, so maybe it‘s a weird farm thing, lol. No clue. (edited) 13mo

Luster: A Novel | Raven Leilani
post image
Mehso-so

I‘m torn on this one. There were parts that I loved- some of the prose is lovely & I love a NYC setting & an unlikeable narrator. The MC makes a slew of bad choices & oof, the guy she gets involved with is even worse. There were other parts of this book that just didn‘t work. It felt like the author tried really hard to be edgy, but needed an honest friend to read it & provide feedback. It started strong and the end was ok, but the middle-meh.

Hollie @vivastory @AmyG I wanted to like this one more than I did- it has so much promise but under delivers in some ways. She has spots of brilliant writing, but her storyline needs some work. Hopefully my other BOTM pick will be better 🤞🏻 1y

Research for my article on 19th c. prostitution in Hays City has been fun throughout. One of the books had a list of creative professional names (a fav was Whorey Dory) but I think Scarlot Harlot might be my new favorite. This book should add in a little sex-positive feminism in viewing prostitution. I‘m also quite certain that all of my recent library searches/amazon purchases have me on a list somewhere!

Jo is a Chinese American actor turned show runner who never comments on her love life. Her assistant, a Jewish, bisexual younger woman helps get her through all her stressful days. When a tabloid rumor spreads that they are romantically linked, it stresses them both out, but causes them to wonder if there is something there. If you need something lighter, something happy, something LGBT friendly- I highly recommend this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
