Finally finished this one. It took forever, not from lack of interest, just lack of time. It's my 2nd Du Maurier after Rebecca. She's a fantastic storyteller and a master at establishing atmosphere. Great book!

It was a great haul because I absolutely love 6 of the 7 I read. This was a great idea @Lcsmcat ! I love seeing everyone's hauls!

Been working my way through this slowly between other reads and finally finished it this morning. I loved the anecdotes about authors and the history of each book. Also appreciated that it helped me understand why certain books made the list...even if I still think they don't belong there 😏 Also, some beautiful pictures of 1st editions and other notable publications.

I really liked this. It was described on the book jacket as "darkly comic." It was definitely dark, but not comic. Korede is a great narrator, and Braithwaite's storytelling pulled me in immediately. My only critique is that the ending felt flat. I turned the page, and it was just over.

KathyWheeler That “darkly comic” description bugged me too. So did the “satire” one. I loved it but found it to be neither of those things. 2mo
GloVerdino I just started this one! 2mo
Aimeesue The "darkly comic" definitely came across in the audiobook. Maybe the format made the difference? 2mo

Internment | Samira Ahmed
post image
Pickpick

In a not-so-distant future, Muslim Americans are rounded up into internment camps when the President convinces America they are an enemy combatant and threat a threat to the nation. Eerily disturbing and powerful, this book explores the possible outcomes of unfettered nationalism and the politics of fear. The author reminds us that this is our nation...all of ours, and that massive resistance and revolution often start with a single voice. #YAL

BellaBookNook Thanks for the reminder for me to pick this up off my bookshelf. I pre-ordered it when it was released and put it on my bookcase never to be seen again!☺️ 3mo

A YA take on Jane Eyre in space...what a fantastic idea! Earth has suffered super volcano eruptions, bringing on an ice age, and humans have taken to the skies, orbiting for centuries until Earth is habitable again. In this midst of this setting, Stella, an orphan aboard the farming ship, sets out to find a better life. It was a fun read #YAL

I like the way the author uses cooking, food, and spices as metaphors for family, friends, and choices we make in life. It's a unique subtopic for a YA book. Identity is a central theme as the author explores the blending of cultures and backgrounds of characters. #YAL

Great story, excellent pacing, just enough mystery to be compelling. Green explores how social media has changed human, society, fame, and news. He also speculates how our polarized society would react to contact from outside our planet. His style is casual and conversational, so I could see it turning some readers off, but I found it very readable.

"Sometimes life can pull a lot out of you, Althea. Just squeeze you dry. And if you don't have a way to get back whatever's good and precious to you, it's like losing your soul." 4 siblings, damaged in different ways by the early death of their mom and a volatile, often-absent father, have to learn to find forgiveness and a way forward in this novel about the messy love, loyalty, and resentment coursing through family dynamics. Highly recommend.

Vox | Christina Dalcher

Wow. I got drawn in quickly! The premise is wild, yet so believable. A fundamentalist govt creates the "Pure Movement"& passes laws putting women back "in their place." Trackers limit females to 100 words/day through electric shock. It's a cautionary tale about the dangers of ignoring extremism when we could speak up then finding it's too late. The conclusion is rushed & becomes an action story, but I definitely recommend it in spite of its flaws.

Refugee | Alan Gratz

3 stories, set decades apart, of families fleeing their homes intertwine in this powerful book. Though the 3 families are from different eras and regions, their stories are tragically similar. The author challenges humanity and the current rhetoric about refugees and immigrants by illustrating the desperation humans face when we choose not to embrace those who are suffering. It's an important book for YA readers and future decision makers. #YAL

Behold the Dreamers | Imbolo Mbue

This follows the lives of the Jongas, immigrants from Cameroon, trying to live out the promise of the American Dream. A secondary story of the Edwardses, the family of a Wall Street exec, highlights the pitfalls of striving. The Jonga husband/wife disagree about America vs Cameroon, staying vs going, & the best future for their children. It explores what it means to be happy, what it takes to be home, & what it is to dream of better.

mc916 I returned this before finishing it because I couldn‘t get into it. I might have to pick it up again. It was a book club read, not my first choice, but everyone (or most) seemed to really like it. 4mo

3rd book expands Binti's universe as she continues to absorb & embrace identities and cultures, finding that seemingly opposite people and worlds can live not only together, but within individuals. It weaves politics, sociology, science,math, psychology, and a coming of age story. Okarafor creates vivid creatures & worlds,evoking classic sci fi (think Weinbaum and Clarke)while addressing core issues in our society, like intolerance and sexism.

I really should quit doing this to myself. I swear off Jane Austen retellings, but then one gets lots of buzz on social media, and I get sucked in. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. It was clever in places and cringy in places. Typical of an adaptation.

My reading life has taken a hit over the past weeks, but I finally was able to spend some time on me. This book story centers around a unique protagonist, Lauren Olamina. Although only a teenager, she sees the coming demise of her world clearer than any adult and begins to prepare for an uncertain, dangerous future in an America that has collapsed into chaos. The storytelling is compelling and disturbing. I highly recommend this.
