Exit West: A Novel | Mohsin Hamid
post image

Have been off Litsy for a few weeks. Been so busy! But I still found time to read some great books - like this amazing work by Moshin Hamid. It is not a big book but deals with some very big issues that are happening in the world today, all the while adding an air of mystery and speculative fiction to it. Definitely a book I will remember a long time.

SamAnne Oh one of my favorites from last year. 18h

Cool little book. About the size of a paperback but has some strong short stories in it. Now if she would just make a sequel to “All the Birds in the Sky”🤤

So I‘m a pen junkie. I had to show off my new leather pen holder. Never had a pen holder before but my red Coleto (pictured) was a special present, so I wanted to protect it. Anyways, I know I‘m a nerd but look at that beautiful pen and holder.

A mysterious sound heard in the desert with the power to render nuclear warheads impotent. Miraculous healing after being in contact with the sound. Both amazing, but what is the sound exactly? It‘s a rainy day in my neck of the woods, which means it‘s a perfect day to read and find out. 📚

Started this beautiful book today. Blake Crouch is one of my favorite authors. I must have read “Dark Matter“ like 9 times now and listened to the audio version 4-5 times. The Wayward Pines series was also amazeballs. So, I don't plan on being disappointed with this one. I love the shiny cover and design!

Kammbia1 I just bought a copy of this one yesterday. I will start reading it today. Hope it meets the hype. 3mo

New Book! Time travel is now possible but it comes with many mysteries and drawbacks. This novel traces the arc of the 4 women pioneers as they travel throughout time and wrestle with their places both in and out of their respective timelines. This is a mystery of a murder that hasn't happened yet and what that means to time travel.

Look how beautiful this book is! I love everything Moreno-Garcia writes. She is able to make a story come to life right before your eyes. This one is about the Mayan God of Death regaining his throne with the aid of a daring and adventurous young lady. So looking forward to it 👍🏼

Wowza! This book was good. Definitely no let down in the 2nd book in the series. I enjoyed the way Bryan Camp intermingled old and new characters. He makes me want to move to New Orleans (or more correct...N‘awlins”)

Current read - what if 9/11 took place on 11/9? And what if the the whole situation was reversed? That is the premise behind Matt Ruff‘s book on a mirror reality to ours. I always enjoy Ruff‘s stuff so this should be good!

Happy Father‘s Day to all the fellow dads out there in Litsy Land. Been reading this one for past couple of days. Really, really like it. Basically it‘s about (and this is the ultra short-doesn‘t do it justice snippet) a rogue alchemist trying to bring magic back into the world by capturing logic and math in two children. Very good!

Started this one this am. Premise is some no name rock band suddenly explodes on the scene and their music has the power to enrapture and control people in different ways. It‘s a short novella but pretty good. Takes the perspective of a music blogger who follows the band around and witnesses first hand what is happening.

Wasn‘t to sure what to think about this book but it looked interesting. So glad I gave it a try. Such a story of family and finding ones way in the world. Also, full of magical realism as the main character, Rose, can actually taste a person‘s emotions and know what is happening in their life simply by tasting a food they have made or prepared. Really enjoyed this one and stayed up late last night to finish it.
