Island of a Thousand Mirrors | Nayomi Munaweera
post image
Pickpick

A hard-hitting and engrossing novel about the Sri Lankan Civil War in the 80's and 90's. There is a lot of tragedy in this story, but joy too, and interesting descriptions of Sri Lankan culture and food.

This is my third book finished for the #MarvellousMay readathon, and it is also my #DoubleSpin choice for #BookSpinBingo. @Andrew65 @TheAromaofBooks

Andrew65 Sounds great, well done 👏👏👏 6h

This novel was nominated for the 2022 Aurora Best Novel award and the entire series was nominated for a 2022 Hugo award.

I liked this final book very much but it didn't amaze me the way Witchmark, the first book, did.

Finished my first book for the #MarvellousMay readathon, one of the 2022 Aurora Best Graphic Novel/Comic nominees. The story is lighthearted and fun, and I loved the cheerful colours of the artwork. I'm sure the story would resonate with anyone who has had to live with an annoying sibling! 😄

- Make progress on my needlework project while #audiostitching for this month's #LitsyCrafters theme.

From the World of the White Rat Series, which was nominated for a 2022 Hugo Best Series award, this is an enjoyable story, with good characters, suspense, comedy and romance (though maybe a little too much romance for my tastes). I've enjoyed a number of other works by T. Kingfisher (a.k.a. Ursula Vernon).

Red X: A Novel | David Demchuk

This is a horror story about men mysteriously disappearing from Toronto's gay village, reflecting real-life events that happened in the city. I found this book deeply disturbing and provocative. I recommend it with reservations, as it's quite graphic and the format is unusual, but wow, Demchuk sure can write horror!

This story follows the paths of several people living in China during the Cultural Revolution who eventually make their way to America. There were some weaknesses in the writing, but the characters and strong storytelling, along with the interesting historical details, more than made up for the deficiencies.

This story imagines the life of Ana, spouse of Jesus. The story on its own is a good piece of historical fiction, showing the challenges women faced in that time period.

This #ToB22 book has elements of All's Well That Ends Well and Macbeth mixed into a wonderfully crazy story about a high-school drama teacher suffering from chronic pain. Miranda tells her students that Shakespeare's play is both a tragedy and a comedy, and one can say the same of this version of All's Well.

I wouldn't recommend this novel to everyone, but I really loved it myself.
