The Breakaways | Cathy G. Johnson

Pickpick

My niece told me to read this and so I did. It is a cute graphic novel that delves into the lives of a bunch of people playing in a soccer league. There are diverse characters - including trans and queer kids - and lovely themes of friendship. I would have read a separate book on each kid - it felt like it jumped around a bit more than I would have liked. I did quite enjoy it! #middlereaders #queerbooks #transbooks

Nute I love when we get entertainment recommendations from the younger people in our lives. My niece recommends books on occasion and my nephew enjoys advising me on keeping current with music!😃 3d

This collection of short stories is beautifully written and bizarre. Some of the stories are downright creepy and unsettling. They centre on women's bodies in inventive and sometimes unexpected ways. It was thoroughly enjoyable to read! I will definitely come back to it! #queerbooks

Bibliogeekery @readordierachel how are you finding it? 4d
readordierachel I loved it. Not as moving as Shrill and some of it feels like preaching to the choir, but I guess I'm part of the choir b/c it resonated. You? 4d
Bibliogeekery @readordierachel I am about halfway through and loving it! I hear you about preaching to the choir but am also just enjoying her naming things that are so clearly happening and fucked up! 😆 4d

This tiny book was such a beautiful read. Richard Wagamese wrote such poignant and succinct meditations on life, on pain and on belonging. I felt a sadness reading this knowing he is gone but was also comforted by his own words on grief.

I really enjoyed this book! I had to get used to the teenage blogger narrator (found her lexicon very annoying initially, particularly on audiobook). It's a dystopian story (chillingly only slightly different than our dystopian reality) where two teenage girls are fleeing false accusations of terrorism for a pro-choice bombing at a purity ball. Thought-provoking, disturbing at times, tender at others. Extra points for a sweet trans kid character!

Not book related but does anyone know what this plant is called? I want to look up how to care for it but don't know what it is.

Prairiegirl_reading I had no idea this was coming out. I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped in at Starbucks for a quick coffee and decided to check out the indigo that is attached and found this on the new release shelf! And on sale to boot!! I loved the girls and the mountain story. This one sounds so good, I‘m so curious if it‘s any good. Btw stopping at Starbucks is just an excuse for book shopping. 😉 3mo

Mehso-so

This was my least favourite Ruth Galloway novel so far. I felt like there were too many different things going on in this one. I also felt that even though I think she meant this one to be respectful toward Aboriginal Australians I still thought it came across as "othering" and exotifying. She also mixes gender and sexuality up repeatedly. I still care about these characters and want to read more but this one was not as strong as the others.

I read this one aloud on the way home from my road trip. (I didn't have wifi so am posting all my trip books today). This was another fun reread for me. I love Binti and the complex coming or age issues she faces - becoming part jellyfish, have alien DNA activated in her - you know, the usual stuff. 😂 Looking forward to book three!

Another enjoyable foray into Ruth Galloway! Cosy mysteries (that have a bit of intellectual content) are so satisfying to read. It always make me laugh though, at how much misfortune happens in these small communities!

This was a good holiday read for me. I'm not sure how much I would have enjoyed it otherwise. It feels like it's trying to be gritty and transgressive but still read like a pretty fluffy book to me. That being said, I was immersed in the world she created and felt attached to the characters. I can definitely picture book club discussing this one over white wine!

rachelm Ditto all that! I enjoyed it. It was a good audiobook too! 3mo

I just revisited this old favourite. Such an exquisite book. This is how historical fiction should always be written. It's romantic, gritty, and evokes the lives of the people who worked to build parts of the city I live in (Toronto).

Moray_Reads I've read a couple by Ondaatje but I'm not familiar with this one. Adding it to the TBR 4mo

Binging this show is getting in the way of my reading! 📺📚 Has anyone read the comics? Are they as good as the show?

GrilledCheeseSamurai I loved the comics and the show pretty much equally. The comics are a tich more crazy than the show as they can get away with a bit more. An example would be in the comics they all have jet packs to zip around on. 🤷‍♂️😅 4mo

This was a delightful collection of LGBTQ2SIA+ stories. It's full of whimsy and magic and romance with great artwork. The back of the book says "Our stories have heroes who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and asexual, from creators who share these identities." ?️‍?? #queerbooks #transbooks #nonbinarybooks

This book was beautiful and exquisitely written but also was somehow hard for me to get through. Oyeyemi creates an abstract, whimsical, gritty, deeply complex reimagining of gingerbread narratives in fairy tales. I loved it at times and was dying for it to end at others.

Road Trip! | Jan Fields

Thanks for the suggestions for group reads for my road trip yesterday! Today I am looking for suggestions for my own reading on the trip. I'm in a bit of a slump. I'm looking for fun queer books, whodunnits (similar to Louise Penny or Kate Atkinson), shortish engaging not devastating narratives etc. Any suggestions?
