Fruit of the Drunken Tree | Ingrid Rojas Contreras

Pickpick

A beautiful come-of-age story of family, friendship, trust, love and loyalty. Inspired by the author's own life, this story is full of heart and soul. My heart went on an emotional roller-coaster on this one. A must-read.

Thank you @Soubhiville for this wonderful gift. You must get to your audio book soon. But get a box of tissue ready... ❤️

Soubhiville You‘re welcome! I‘m glad you enjoyed it. I can‘t wait to read it. 😊 5d

A book that speaks truthfully; that opens your eyes and mind to lives of people we don‘t often read about; a book that challenges your perspectives; that makes you uncomfortable because of the truth it holds. However, the style that it's been written in might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Inland | Ta Obreht
post image
Pickpick

Obreht is back with her lush lyrical prose, this time set in the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893. Meet Nora, an indomitable frontierswoman, and Lurie, an outlaw turned cameleer for the Camel Corp. Their stories told in different timelines - Nora's in one day, Lurie's over decades. The ending blew me away. Very slow paced but beautifully written. Obreht is truly a literary genius.

Full review on my blog.

Definitely gonna be one of my top reads of the year! I loved everything about it! It had got very strong character portrayals (even the minor roles!), and plot and pacing were on point! Felt like it was for YA but not targeted/marketed as so. Still, it was a very good read! Strong pick!

The Gown: A Novel | Jennifer Robson
post image
Pickpick

Heartfelt, captivating & beautifully written. Yes, this book is about THE gown; go behind the scenes of the making of Princess Elizabeth‘s gorgeous star-patterned fan-shaped bridal train that was 13 feet in length, designed by Norman Hartnell & learn about the dedication & hard work of the embroiders who worked for him. It is also about love, loss, & grief, and covered topics like rape, the Holocaust and anti-semitism without being too heavy.

My girl loves asking questions about food. This book's perfect for her! It has questions like what makes bread rise, why are tomatoes red, why we love food, what makes popcorn pop. It also shows different ways of cooking and has various science experiments you can do with your child!

I don‘t normally go for fun nor feel-good books like this with happy endings because, you know, real life is so far from it. But I just couldn‘t resist the sight of books on the cover, plus it was on Amazon First Reads. So I thought, why not! And my, was I surprised that I enjoyed the story! I‘m gonna coin this term #fff fun-funny-feelgood book!

I had a teeny weeny bit of a problem with this one. First, it's how a person not making a mistake is celebrated, with paparazzi awaiting her outside her house everyday. And nobody knows her name except for her moniker (the title of the book).

Second, mistakes that her brother made - dancing with hands, playing the piano with his feet aren't mistakes! Even drawing with green beans!

An epistolary. A letter written to the MC's mom about many things–pain, love, homosexuality, immigrants, family, war, violence, trauma, drugs, desperation, devastation, beauty, nature, of being foreign & different, of being invisible.

Writing might be a little grandiose/OTT for some. And it had got no plot. Snippets here & there, back & forth. But it was an eye-opening read for me. Therefore, a pick.

Set in the Depression Era, Ellis Reed, a journalist, got a big break in his career when his story with a picture of a sign that read '2 Children for Sale' was published. Sympathy & help came pouring in to help the children in the picture. All was good until the story took an ugly turn.

A quick, yet thought-provoking read! A great cure for a reading slump, especially if you enjoy #historicalfiction!

Congratulations Debra @Kdgordon88 on this achievement! 🎉🎉 Hmmm.. Tough to pick a fav but if it's from my latest reads so far, it'd be 'Miracle Creek' by Angie Kim or most recent 'Erotic Stories for Punjabi Women' by Balli Kaur Jaswal.

Most wished for book? Anne Frank's Diary: The Graphic Adaptation ☺️

Even though there weren‘t any concrete plot or strong characters, her skillful storytelling kept me going. All in all, I‘d say it‘s between a pick and so-so, leaning more towards a pick. If this is food, I‘d say it‘s very much an acquired taste. If you‘re one for dreamy, magical realism with vivid imagery and lyrical prose, you might enjoy this! I‘m excited to read her upcoming novel ‘Inland‘!

One of the best books I‘ve read so far! It had all the ingredients I love – a great plot, wonderful characters (love love those Punjabi widows!), emotional, funny, thoughtful, provocative and unbiased! This book made me cry too – there were some very touching scenes...Being able to put all that into a book and making it such a great page turner take great skills and talent. Kudos to the author!

(eARC) Switching between 2 stories & timelines - The life of Wang Di as a comfort woman who served the Japanese soldiers during WW2 & Kevin whose grandma left him a mysterious message that led him to finding his family roots. But what do these 2 individuals have in common?

I just couldn't connect to the characters, & the ending was a little unsatisfactory. Full review on my blog. ⤵️

Jee_HookedOnBookz Thank you #Netgalley & #HanoverSquarePress for a free eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 4mo

This book was absurdity at its best! To enjoy this ride, you need to get out of your comfort zone and suspend belief as you enter the convoluted world of legalized narcotics and filtered extinct animals, where unicorns are real, and exotic dodo birds are fried and consumed at dinners! 😱

Thank you #Netgalley & #FSGbooks for a free eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.
