It's Black History Month!✊💜 What are you reading? Here's an excellent read If you're looking to learn more about Black German history 👌👌👌

#wocreads #bhm #diversebooks

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I'm reading this! It's really great so far, set in the American civil war with an African American spy heroine with an eidetic memory! 2y
WOCreads @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Ooh I've seen the amazing cover around, but it's a romance right? How heavy is it on romance? Cause your summary sounds👌👌👌 2y
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @WOCreads It is a romance for sure! But I'd also say the other non-romance plot is equally important. 2y
WOCreads @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Thanks! Then I'll put it on my Try pile 😁 It does sound badass✊💜 2y
WomanistBibliophile I just read a book on the experience of Black women in Germany that was excellent and this one also looks intriguing 1y

It's #nonfictionnovember ? I love non-fiction works, and this one is wonderful so far.

Dis-Orienting Planets is pubbed by UP of Mississippi and "amplifies critical issues surrounding the racial and ethnic dimensions of science fiction. This edited volume explores depictions of Asia and Asians in science fiction literature, film, and fandom with particular regard to China, Japan, India, and Korea." (upress)

This is fucking brilliant! Also, I listened to the audiobook version read by Gay, highly recommended. Want to go back to Sara Ahmed and her use of 'wilfulness' and 'unruly' now, to think through Hunger 💜📚👌

#diversebooks #audiobooks

ReadingEnvy I've read it but still want to hear her reading it! 2y
batsy Oh that's great about linking to Sara Ahmed. I've read her essays but not her books and I really should. Are you thinking about Willful Subjects? 2y
WOCreads @ReadingEnvy Yes do! Her narration is excellent 👌 2y
WOCreads @batsy Yes exactly! And on unruly bodies you can find it through most of her papers. Course there's lots of work that touches in this since the whole body turn, but Ahmed is one of my fave scholars 😊 2y
batsy @WOCreads Cannot believe I have not read her books yet! I've read some of her essays and I find her work so rich and necessary. 2y

This is book one in my quest to read MG adventure stories this summer and I'm off to a great start. Delved into the city of Paheli from my pile of quilts in the garden with obligatory Chai and felt 10 again🙌👌

God Smites is a cozy crime, a coming-of-age story with a hilarious protagonist and also a book of social commentary on Islamophobia.

Highly recommened!💜📚
