Book 15 of 2018: The was the second Stephen King book I‘ve ever read. The first one was ages ago in high school. This book was hard to get through. The first half was soooo slow. As the vampire is a little on the cheesy side. #SalemsLot #StephenKing #3KingsBuddyRead
“Alone. Yes, that‘s the key word, the most awful word in the English tongue. Murder doesn‘t hold a candle to it and hell is only a poor synonym…”
Book 8 of 2018: “When your rage is choking you, it is best to say nothing.”
Book 6 of 2018: “One of the most tenacious beliefs was that blacks did not feel pain or anxiety, which excused painful surgical explorations without anesthesia on blacks.” #HarrietAWashinton
So far so good. The 3 stories I've read have been quite entertaining. #FScottFitzgerald
Can you imagine being a 26 yr old black woman who is sent back in time to antebellum Maryland over and over again to save a young and crazy white slaveholder? Not to mention that this slaveholder is the father of your great grandmother. #kindred #octaviabutler #scifi #booknerd #whattoread #goodreads #litsy #amreading #bibliophile
This is a story of a slave girl named Lilith and a few other women on a Jamaican sugar cane plantation who eventually plan something crazy. All of the women have very interesting yet sad stories that explain why they are who they are.
The Jamaican dialect is sometimes hard to follow at the beginning and there is a lot of detailed graphic violence. Despite this I really enjoyed the book.
