Long time no see! Unfortunately we had to put The Resistance Bookclub on hold during exam season, hence why you didn't hear from us... but we're back! We've uploaded some more reviews on goodreads and summer reading is under way. Stay tuned fellow littens

⭐⭐⭐⭐

"With a great many stories using neurodiverse characters as tokens, mostly inaccurate and offensive portrayals, [The Colour of Bee Larkham's Murder] is refreshing..."
Salvador Bonaparte

For today's #happinessisresistance entry of "take pride in yourself", I have chosen the first book featuring a lgbtq character that I read. The Resistance Bookclub takes pride in championing queer, poc, female and neurodivergent authors.

For today's #MarchInBooks 'books and music', I have chosen the soundtrack to Nordwand (English title: North Face) as it is simply stunning

Joining a bit late (again) but here is my first entry for #MarchInBooks . When I read the tag "set on an island" I knew I had to choose this book. A book which makes you think

This is my #happinessisresistance entry for today. Reading and colouring are both a form of self care for me, and the result made me 😄

Loving this reading challenge! Anyone got any suggestions for more I can join?

Joining in the #happinessisresistance challenge three days in with the tag #flowers . I adore the cover of this penguin modern classic edition! And couldn't help but include these gorgeous #notebooks

From the Read shelf and the TBR shelf of the Resistance Bookclub. Both are #penguin #modernclassics but with two very different covers. I normally prefer illustrated, but the Confessions of a Mask cover is so striking maybe I'm changing my mind... do you prefer illustrated or photograph?

I was excited to read this as a fan of Brüder Grimm, but was left disappointed. Unfortunately, I did not manage to finish it. (Very unlike me). How did others get along with it?

Right from the dedication, Saenz welcomes not only all the world's misfits, but specifically the boys. This is an important aspect of the novel which touches on themes of masculinity, particularly within the Mexican-American community, from the point of view of what it means to 'belong'.
