A little girl takes her father‘s hand and the two of them wander away as her brother begs them to bring him an ice cream cone. Today that sort of beginning feels ominous: what‘s going to happen?

I‘m really enjoying this series. It‘s really well-written! It‘s nice to see the blossoming friendship between Khattak and his partner, Getty. I also appreciated learning about different facets of Islam. #hoopla

I haven‘t been able to review this gorgeous puzzle of a novel on Litsy because all I want to do is gush about it. Now that it‘s won a Governor General award, I will give it my best shot because it‘s got a low rating on this app. What‘s it about? Existence. The joys and griefs of being alive in a world that‘s falling apart. It‘s philosophical and whimsical, with prose crafting that thrills my language-loving soul. #LGBTQ #CanadianAuthor

Suet624 Sounds right up my alley. 2w
Lindy @Suet624 😁👍 2w
Penny_LiteraryHoarders I had this sitting on my table, borrowed from the library during the Giller anticipation time. When it didn‘t make the list I returned it. Sounds like I need to borrow it again! 😊 2w

💛 easy read; literally bolted through it in less than 12 hrs. A bit predictable, great pacing, and overall very heartwarming. Reminded me of Love and Other Words a little too much, but I‘m a sucker for this kind of story no matter what!!

Felting project is starting to shape up!
It was good to be stabbing away while listening to this book, which is about five people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities and sent to an awful, awful “Indian school.” Truly heartbreaking, and I was angered on their behalf. Humans can be so terrible to one another.

Tamra Lovely! 2w
Ann_Reads Pretty! That must be relaxing to do except when you're listening to a frustrating, incredibly sad audiobook. 2w
Aimeesue @Ann_Reads It‘s a lot of stabbing, so it‘s pretty therapeutic 😉 2w

Aimeesue @Tamra Thanks! It‘s a present, so I hope it turns out well 2w
tpixie Lovely I‘ve not heard of this craft 1w
Aimeesue @tpixie I found about 100 skeins of wool yarn at the thrift store, and I don't knit much these days, so I wondered if I could tear them apart for felting. I'd done 3 dimensional needle felting before, but I hadn't tried flat wool "painting." I really enjoy it. It's popular in Great Britain -lots of sheeps- and in Ukraine, of all places. 7d
tpixie @Aimeesue interesting! thanks for info! 7d

This gave me more to reflect on and has some very hard passages that cut to the bone. It is beautiful however how Good brings the reader into the process of healing that only some of her characters can complete. Very moving and generous.

Fantastic. I couldn‘t put it down.

Now I‘m sad it‘s over.

A coming of age story told by 30 year old Percy that recounts meeting Sam when they were just 13. Almost a YA book, I wouldn‘t designate it as such due to described sexual tension and a couple sex scenes. I was unsure about Percy because she almost comes off as whiny and needy, almost. I‘d have loved a few chapters from Sam‘a point of view. Book #72 in 2022
