Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront

Pickpick

This did not age well. I loved this book when I was younger. And the only reason that I gave it four stars instead of 3 was because Jane is such an amazing heroine. But the men in this book are terrible.

This book should be required reading in our schools. It is an important perspective that every person should read. #audiobook #45of65

I‘ve gotten a little behind on posting my books. I‘ve also abandoned all reading challenges because life is too short and my TBR is too long.

This book was a lot. But it was also excellent. It‘s the first King I‘ve read and now I want to read more.

This was a good middle grade book. It provided a good picture into what life is like for a girl in a Muslim country, but ended with an optimistic sense of agency.

This was not good. It was so homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic. It reads like it was written 10 years before it was. On top of that it‘s full of plot holes and boring tropes.

I‘d seen someone say somewhere that they didn‘t care for this book and was prepared to dislike it. So I was even more pleased when I absolutely loved it. I can‘t wait to read the next in the series. Butler‘s Tale is fascinating and the characters are rich and complex.

I didn‘t read as much as I hoped to in May. Hopefully I can catch up in June.

The Marrow Thieves was a clear standout. While the New Jim Crow should be required reading, I absolutely adored The Marrow Thieves. Honorable mention also goes to The Power.

Literaturenut @hgrimes My husband built it for me. He used to do landscaping. I don‘t know that it was hard, but there is some skill to it. You have to measure and trench it and then level each stone and hammer it in place. (edited) 5mo
