Does this even really need to be said? It‘s so busy and backed up this time of year. 😩 Sorry ‘bout it.

MrBook *big hug* This isn't your fault, Litten. It's happening on an epic scale this season and affecting many people. Hang in there. 2y

winemom I don‘t want my lovely people thinking they aren‘t worthy of all the presents, because they so are. One of my parcels was taken to the office, where it sat for a week, then got kicked back to UPS for a couple of days, then over to the office again, and finally brought to my door. “Why didn‘t you claim your package?” WHY DIDN‘T YOU TELL ME I HAD ONE? 🙃 The entire postal service is out for my blood. 2y

This is the gospel. As a first time mom of someone who‘s on the cusp of toddling, I identify heavily with this book. Bunmi is hilarious and not afraid to say that parenting sometimes just plain sucks.

Johanna414 So true! We just got a few little gifts for our 2 year old - give him a matchbox car and he‘s happy for hours. The grandparents don‘t have the same philosophy and I‘m pretty sure have gone waaaaay overboard... 2y

The Ecco Anthology of Contemporary American Short Fiction | Joyce Carol Oates, Christopher R. Beha
post image
Mehso-so

I was excited to get my hands on a new short story by Oates, but I don‘t know what to make of it. The ambiguity is thick. Is it a story of a teacher acting inappropriately towards her students? Is it a story of a boy who couldn‘t suppress his sexual deviance and “embellished” their interactions in his own mind? A little of both? It would be a much better as a full-length novel, rather than a 70 page quickie.

This book is giving me so many feelings. Could you imagine having to stop caring for and feeding your own child because you‘re forced to feed and tend to someone else‘s? The traumas black wet nurses experienced then are still felt today; though they have increased, there is still a large discrepancy between the breastfeeding rates of black mothers and white mothers. This is why events like Black Breastfeeding Week are so critical.

I wasn‘t going to start yet another book (What is that? 4 now? 😶), but I needed something I could listen to on my run. This was probably the wrong one to choose, because I was crying while trying to run and breathe and push a stroller. I looked like I really hate working out, when I was just that moved by this powerful book. The best narration I‘ve listened to all year!

The Butterfly Garden | Dot Hutchison
post image
Mehso-so

First and foremost, if the subject of sexual abuse is particularly bothersome to you, please just avoid the book. I enjoy Hutchison‘s wry writing, just not the way she develops her characters. Most of this story is just not believable and pretty convoluted. It was hard to connect to the main protagonist and share in her motivations. I felt like screaming “DO SOMETHING.” the entire time. Luckily, peripheral characters saved the story for me.

The Silence of the Lambs | Thomas Harris
post image
Pickpick

The feminism is strong in this one. Mr. Harris develops his female characters quite impressively. He doesn‘t reduce them to love interests or use as catalysts for male characters to flourish; they fight, resist, and use their brains. Not often are they helpless, but when they are, they don‘t need a knight. Starling is the most badass, tenacious feminist character I‘ve encountered this year, hands down.

And how can you not love Dr. Lecter?

bookloo Sold. 😍 2y
winemom @bookloo Yay!! I read a few reviews saying how flat Starling‘s character is, so I went in with low expectations. Idk what book they read, but I thought she was a force to be reckoned with. I don‘t even think the movie captures the full extent of her character. 2y

Naked Lunch: The Restored Text | William Burroughs

This makes sense, considering the book does not. I suggest reading the last 80-something pages, before you try the first 200; they explain his, uh, thought processes or lack thereof. It‘s not necessarily a bad book, especially when you understand the backstory. Just don‘t expect it to flow with much logic.

I‘ve been slowly incorporating more veggies and health into my diet. Last year, when I decided to adopt a “more vegan” lifestyle, I found out that I was pregnant and had HG, because of course. I could only tolerate salami sandwiches and grits for about 4 months. This cookbook is equal parts hilarious and helpful. Any vegetarian/vegan Littens who‘d like to throw in some tips or recipes for my new journey, they‘d be greatly appreciated. 😙

Isn‘t this wild? Nowadays, a large majority of people (in the US anyway) can‘t even handle seeing an infant being breastfed in public, so I‘m sure the same people look at a mom like she has two heads if she dare breastfeeds a child over the age of two. When did something so natural and beneficial become such taboo?

Okay, I‘m descending my lactivist soapbox.

I rarely read much poetry and when I️ do, I️ like to go back to it every now and again to digest it slowly, but I read this in one setting. I️ couldn‘t help it. Not every poem is pretty and flows easily. Some are quite purposely jarring and crass. I️ love them all the same. Calling it now, Flose Boursiquot is going to be huge. I‘m honored to have her first published book.

Every time I go to buy books, I try to grab something at random in a genre I️ usually don‘t buy. This time I picked up Flose Boursiquot‘s debut book of poetry. Her work is so raw and feminist, bravely shining light on the current issues that plague our nation and world, including but not limited to, racism, white privilege, misogyny, sexual assault, and class inequalities. She‘s a powerful voice for this generation.
