Well. That was not what I expecting from a Snow White retelling! But I definitely enjoyed it. It took on a lot of topics like race, class, family & sexuality. I did not necessarily agree with or like the way some of these things were portrayed, but I think these they would make for a very lively book discussion. I'll be thinking on this book for a while.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Scochrane26 Smart. I normally wait until the paperbacks come out, but I'm going to see her speak next week about the book. So I figured I better read it before then. 😊 1w

Congrats @GrilledCheeseSamurai and thank you for the generous giveaway! #SixDigitSamurai

My fave read so far this year has to be The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It was so tragic yet fascinating & informative.

I love Litsy so much. And it means a lot to me because of all the friends and connections I've made from being here. I dont have a lot of reader friends IRL, so I cherish my fellow Littens.

GrilledCheeseSamurai I only have a handful of friends that enjoy reading in real life too. Whats wrong with people? 😅 2w

I don't remember the last time I bailed on a book, but I'm about halfway through and I have no idea what is going on. I also can't keep track of all the different characters. I'm just going to watch the show, which is the only reason I'm reading the book anyways. Maybe I'll want to revisit it after that.

I didn't love this book the first time I read it. But after a buddy read chat and this reread, I've come to understand it better & I enjoyed it much more.

(The first time around I had skimmed the letters between Neil & Naomi, as I was confused as to if that was part of the story or not. But turns out it is, and it's important for the readers perception. 🤷‍♀️ )

Ruthiella I love how conversation about a book can make a reader appreciate it more!😀 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Ruthiella Yes! I definitely had preconceived notions going into it the first time. But a good chat & a reread helped me for sure. 😊 1mo
CarolynM There are a lot of challenging ideas in this book. It's one that needs to be thought about. 4w

A historical fiction account of the first set of quintuplets to survive childbirth, written from the perspective of one of their caregivers.

I really wanted to like it. I love the premise. Overall it was fascinating, sad, and a bit redundant. Also, the ending just confused me. It didn't fit & I don't know what we're meant to take away from it.

Curious what the rest of my #lmpbc group thinks. @bookishtrish @FantasyChick @Andrea4 @StayCurious

BulkingBookie I date a girl who's triplet, and that was hard enough 😂 So, how do you place the book on the app scale? So-so? Bail? 2mo
Megabooks I took away from it that you shouldn‘t put your kids on display. Usually I‘ll catch an episode or two of Outdaughtered or Sweet Home Sextuplets but not anymore!! 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Megabooks Yes I would agree with that, that was almost too obvious. But I'm more baffled with what we're meant to take away from Emma's story line. She was so naive I wanted to shake her. Then the rape/attack at the end, that made no sense. And finally she ends up with Lewis, only for him to die? I just don't know what to make of it all. 🤷‍♀️ 2mo

@DaveGreen7777 is having a fun giveaway!!!

One of my favourite villians is Cersei from GoT. I love strong female characters ♀️✊🏼. She's a badass yet absolutely vile. You admire her, but you hate her guts and want her to die an agonizing death. It's complicated.

#TheWorldNeedsAVillain #giveaway

DaveGreen7777 Completely agree with you about Cersei! Her methods are ruthless, but she is so clever and formidable, it‘s hard not to admire her anyway! Thanks for participating in my giveaway! 😊 2mo
5feet.of.fury I remember an English teacher explaining that (we had an exercise to write the antagonist‘s side of the story). No one thinks they‘re the bad guy, even Hitler didn‘t think he was the bad guy. Multiple perspectives in novels definitely highlight that, you may not agree with the motivations or outcomes, but you can understand why they are acting the way they are. 2mo
