Gods of Want: Stories | K-Ming Chang

Pickpick

A collection of short stories interpreting generational trauma, self discovery, & queerness.

This was such a fascinating read! Change‘s use of fabulism & body horror felt almost ephemeral. I felt like I was trying to catch smoke in my fingers. “Dykes” and “Resident Aliens” were probably my favorite stories.

Definitely going to seek out more of Chang‘s work! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

BookmarkTavern The Chorus of Dead Cousins, brief reference to suicide; Anchor, child death by gunshot; Nüwa, brief references to suicide; Dykes, cat death; Episodes of Hoarders, brief references to suicide; Resident Aliens, brief reference to child death; Mariela, brief reference to miscarriage; Meals for Mourners, self harm, infant death 3d

50 must do adventures for each of the 50 states!

This was just as gorgeous as Siber‘s other book. Lovely bright colors, a diverse array of people portrayed, and in depth explanations of beautiful and unique experiences in every state. Also loved the recognition for various Native tribes that used to live, and still live today in different areas. The nibling loved reading this one to me! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

Patca is on the run, seeking refuge with her uncle. Unfortunately, when she gets to Bucharest, she finds her uncle murdered, her family book of magical recipes missing, & a city in chaos.

Patca was such a plucky protagonist. She's only 14 years old, but immediately takes charge of her own life. & the magic! I loved the magic of the recipes!

The style took some getting used to, I definitely had to reread some sections in the beginning. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

A collection of Ursula K Le Guin‘s essays discussing science fiction and fantasy, writing, inspiration, and humanity.

Le Guin‘s nonfiction is just as insightful and inspiring as her fiction is. She had such a powerful way with words as she discusses the evolution of sci-fi and how her writing has grown. Every single essay made me either want to reread everything of hers, or get started again on my own writing. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

Perigee, in an effort to fix everything for their father, arranges for the two of them to get invited back to the Puzzle House built by their grandparents. But nothing is what it seems & the house has ideas of its own.

It‘s time for Ashland‘s annual springtime chocolate festival! Everything‘s going great for Juliet‘s bake shop when a rival baker seems to die of an allergic reaction right after sampling her wares.

This was charming! I loved the relationship between Juliet & her mother, & the fact that the centered romance was actually Juliet‘s mother & her new beau. Loved the descriptions of food, & I would have loved more of the 2ndary characters. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

While the women of Greek myths have, more often than not, been sidelined or villainized, Haynes‘s book tales several of these characters & examines the context, the different versions of their stories, as well as the modern interpretations.

This was amazing & makes me want to seek out more women centered Greek myth retellings. This book provides a nuanced understanding of such interesting characters. Can‘t wait to read more by her!🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

A thorough explanation of everything you never knew you needed to know about gynecological health.

Wow! There‘s a part of me that‘s embarrassed about everything I didn‘t know in this book, but more of me is angry. For most of my life I thought debilitating pain & long heavy periods was all normal. It was nearly 20 years with a period before a doctor took me seriously.

mrsmarch The onus should not be on the patient to have more medical knowledge than the doctor and convince the doctors something is wrong. Shame on your doctors who for twenty years did not educate you about your body or take your pain seriously. I have friends who are doctors who get mad at my doctors for not telling me stuff and putting the shame of medical onus on me. 3w
PuddleJumper Glad there are more books coming out that are talking about things like this. It's not just lack of knowledge but also medical bias. I work a lot with clients with endo and most of them don't get diagnosed for years and usually only when surgical intervention is needed 3w

May Kimble, grieving her mother‘s death, joins her family in San Francisco in 1904. Hoping to find love & acceptance, she instead a finds secrets, drugs, & corruption. All in time for the 1905 earthquake.

An incredibly slow start, with an overly passive protagonist & I was bored up until 1/2 way through. But it was a book club book, so I persevered. & I did like May‘s growth & her journey for justice. Just wish that last 1/2 was more. 🌕🌕🌗🌑🌑

A queer, polyamorous retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice set in modern day Miami.

Good god, but I loved this. This is a novella told in verse, written beautifully, and examining who our parents try to make us be. A sweet romance, which could have been developed a bit more, and I definitely want to read this again as an audiobook.

I was a little thrown by the lack of dialogue related punctuation, but I did eventually get used to that. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

When sourcery returns to the Disc, & throws the wizards all into chaos, what is a cowardly Rincewind to do but put together a ragtag group to maybe save the world? Or run away, one of the two.

Sophy & Vyerin are each mourning a lost sibling when they have the idea to compare the letters their siblings shared. Between all of these letters a larger mystery starts to unfurl.
