Hurricane Season | Fernanda Melchor

Holy run-on sentence, Batman!

This book is violent, dark, raw, and powerful. A woman known only as The Witch is found murdered, and a series of narrators lead us in circles around her death. With each we learn more about the realities of poverty, addiction, abuse, and violence against women in the impoverished setting.

The writing style took me a while to adjust to but well worth the effort. #integrateyourshelf

Was lax posting at the end of 2020, but had to share this beautiful novel about a young Cherokee man working at Asheville's Grove Park in one summer during WWII, when the Inn has turned into a detainment center for high ranking prisoners of war and their families. When a young girl goes missing, a fish-out-of-water situation becomes something much more dangerous.

I'm not crying, you're crying.
Indigenous speculative fiction is apparently in my wheelhouse. After climate change and pollution have ravaged the land and a plague has caused many to lose the ability to dream, indigenous people are hunted and harvested for their immunity. Mirroring the way these groups have had to continually adapt and fight for survival throughout the last several hundred years, a moving dystopian tale. #integrateyourshelf

Survivor Song | Paul Tremblay

Pickpick

Oh. My. God. At times eerily timely (hospital workers' improvised PPE and N95 rationing, anyone?), the novel follows a pregnant woman named Natalie who has been exposed to a super rabies outbreak. Taking place over a period of just a few hours, the first third felt a little slow and then it took off like a rocket. All caps spoilers in the comments because I have so many feelings after that, and it's gonna be an epic book hangover.

WhatWouldJaneDo JOSH AND LUIS my heart!!! Their ending just about broke me. I do wonder how that worked for anyone who hadn't read Disappearance At Devil's Rock. And thank goodness the epilogue gave some resolution and catharsis or my kindle might have gotten thrown. 13mo

Felix Ever After | Kacen Callender

A wonderful YA novel (and that cover!) Felix is a black, trans boy longing for love, like most 17-year-olds. When he's the target of anti-trans bullying and someone posts old photos of him with his dead name, he's angry and wants revenge. But his plan for payback ultimately leads to exploring his own identity and relationships, and to new revelations in his art. Thoughtful and vibrant! #integrateyourshelf

A 1940s "How I Met Your Father" (although the narrator is not the Mother!) as a woman named Vivian recounts her time living at her aunt's theater, cavorting with showgirls, designing costumes and generally burning the candle at both ends.

Trethewey is an incredible writer. Here she memorializes her mother, who was murdered by her stepfather after years of abuse. She also recounts her early years being raised by interracial parents in the deep south at a time when their marriage was illegal. This is a very difficult read (I don't know how Trethewey did the audio herself) and at points made me feel physically ill but it is worth the effort.

Tough week! Like others, I had a difficult time thinking of African authors I've read who have been translated from a language other than English. The closest I can think of is Leila Slimani, who is Moroccan but now lives in France. I know I read some short fiction by African writers in French when I was in college; I wish I still had that textbook on hand!

Did find a nice article on African women writers - link in comments.

#integrateyourshelf

WhatWouldJaneDo Many of the authors in this article write in English but there are a few works in translation, and it's an interesting read in general: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/dec/15/novels-african-women-female-author... 1y

My new favorite Stephen Graham Jones novel! Four friends break the rules and go into the wrong section of the Blackfeet Reservation to hunt elk. Ten years later it's time for their comeuppance.

Super twisted! On the last day of term, a teacher sits her class down and tells them that two of them murdered her young daughter, and she's come up with her own revenge.

A great thriller for #womenintranslationmonth

Gobbled this one up in under 24 hours! An awesome thriller loosely inspired by the Gypsy Rose Blanchard case - Rose Gold Watts was poisoned by her mom Patty for her entire childhood, believing she had a chronic illness. Her testimony put Patty away. Now after five years in prison Patty is being released, and Rose Gold is welcoming her home. I thought the twists and turns were great, exciting without getting stupid like thrillers sometimes do.

Megabooks I love the twists with her father‘s family! 1y
WhatWouldJaneDo @Megabooks me too! I was really suspicious about where she got the baby, especially after we met "Phil" but I wasn't expecting that. I did feel really bad for her when the dad abandoned her - he had sought her out but I guess he just wanted to sooth his guilty conscience and not really have a relationship! She shouldn't have lied about cancer but it should have been obvious to him she needed support. 1y
