I will admit, I couldn‘t stand the narrator at first—her ignorance, her naïveté, her prejudice. But seeing her in that way first only led to a deeper bond later on as I watched her grow and learn and become revolutionary. Sooooo excited for the next one.

Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

I became immersed in this story, thinking about the characters when just going about my day, eager to get back to reading. At times a bit overwhelming in the desperation of the situations, but so realistic. I adore Kingsolver and the characters she creates. I will be thinking about this one for a while.

LeeRHarry She‘s a fave of mine - looking forward to this one 😊 3mo

Am I doing this #litsywalker thing the right way? 🤓

Kaye Looks great. Did you listen to an audiobook ? And did you measure distance or miles ? No worries if you didn‘t. 👍🏼 4mo
dialogofadream @kaye yes to the first question, no to the second, but I did measure minutes 🤓 4mo
Kaye That‘s great then. Thank you for joining in. You have beautiful scenery. 4mo

Wow! I‘m super late to the party on this one, but I‘m glad I finally read it. So much wisdom, but even more importantly, just a damn good story with a perfect ending.

WanderingBookaneer @BookishMarginalia and I were talking about this one earlier today. She suggested this one for a reading challenge as I have not read it. 4mo
dialogofadream @WanderingBookaneer yes I used this for the PopSugar “million ratings on Goodreads” category, along with my mount TBR. 🤓 4mo
WanderingBookaneer That‘s what I might use it for! Great minds...! 4mo

Well, now I can say I‘ve been mentally rickrolled by Audre Lorde??

Locking myself out of my house this morning meant reading time on the way to work and on the way home!

“What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence?” I am familiar with this quote, but was so excited to read it in the context of its essay, “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”!

I loved all of these stories. They reminded me how much I love the short story format. All of them had a very strong sense of place—Washington DC—which is a surefire way to charm my literary heart.

A cutesy book that takes itself too seriously. Facile and exploitative at times. BUT some interesting historical tidbits and a hearty reminder of the magic of intention. Also counts for three different reading challenges I‘m doing this year. 💪🏼

Ok, so I had issues with this book, but they were issues I knew I‘d probably have, so 🤷🏻‍♀️What I didn‘t enjoy was the typical Christian talk, as well as the heteronormative talk. What I loved was the stories—the ones about his kids, the “Ryan in Love” chapter and the one about Don Valencia. I appreciated his insights about “whimsy” and love in action. Lastly, the format and feel of this book was a perfect way for me to get back into audiobooks!

I will be thinking about this book for a long time. The character development was deep and slow and totally worth it. It just got juicier and more painful the further in I got. I cried my way through the last 100 pages.

RaimeyGallant Nice review! And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it.
