Mehso-so

I get that this book caught some attention, but I just couldn't care much about Oscar's misfortunes. Not very wondrous, but repetitive and clichéd.

I learned a lot about Dominican history, which I honestly knew nothing about. That's a big plus, thank you #foodandlit

The vulgar narrator may be a provoking idea, but it left me with the feeling that this is what you do when you have nothing else to contribute.

@Catsandbooks @Texreader

Susanita Between the vulgar narrator and the extremely long sentences, I was horrified that I had recommended this for my book club. now
Texreader I‘ve read wonderful reviews so I keep waiting for the “good part” to start! So it isn‘t just me who‘s underwhelmed—at least so far now
Lunakay @Texreader Looking forward to your overall review! now
Lunakay @Susanita I get that! I was hooked by the Pulitzer and now the prize lost some of its meaning to me. I also wonder how people are expected to get all the Spanish, I got like 85% and was still lost at times😅 now

#FOODANDLIT ??

Hilda Burgos author of middle-grade novels Ana María Reyes Does Not Live in a Castle,Miosotis Flores Never Forgets and this book. The daughter of Dominican immigrants, she lives with her family near Philadelphia, where she works as an environmental lawyer.

All her books are excellent. I read this one once a week to kids in similar situations: do not have a bed or bedroom or sleep elsewhere at night.

Started to listen to this one for #FoodAndLit 💥 it‘s pretty powerful so far. I‘m really enjoying the audio of this :)

TheBookHippie All her books are so good! 2d
ElizaMarie @TheBookHippie I am loving it. Especially hearing the author read it herself! So, the part about the tampons and her mother... really hit something in me. My momma is Mexican-American and she had very similar thoughts on tampons, I mean, my father (Anglo) was able to explain to her things, which as a young teen girl (first born) it was mortifying! 2d
TheBookHippie @ElizaMarie My mom was similar!!! 👀😵‍💫 2d

ElizaMarie @TheBookHippie Do you know if she does more Spanish in her other books? So far (I am 32% in), I want more Spanish! 2d
TheBookHippie @ElizaMarie El ingrediente secreto de Emoni Santiago (Spanish Edition) https://a.co/d/cnE9SWo I believe most of her books are published in Spanish. She has a new one coming in August. 2d
Catsandbooks I liked this one! So glad you're enjoying it! 🇩🇴 2d
ElizaMarie @TheBookHippie ooooo thanks!!! 1d

My #FoodAndLit #DominicanRepublic book won‘t be here until Tuesday, but I couldn‘t wait to make this Dominican Chimi Burger. 😋
I still have plenty of recipes for the rest of the month, so it‘s okay. 🇩🇴

Texreader Oh goodness. When can I come over and share?? 😋 3d
Catsandbooks Looks so tasty! 🇩🇴 3d

Starting this one tonight on audio! I love the way the book is written as a conversation and the narrator really brings it to life.

This book will cover two 2023 challenges:
#FoodandLit Dominican Republic
#ReadHarder2023 (BookRiot) Listen to an audiobook performed by a person of color of a book written by an author of color.

Catsandbooks Conversation style sounds fun! 🇩🇴 3d
Texreader I hadn‘t heard of this one! Glad it‘s on my radar now 3d

OK, so we are 5 days in, but here is my February TBR. I won‘t read this many books & as always, it‘s subject to change to my mood, but I think I‘ll get through the first couple of rows including the books from #SundayBuddyRead #Pemberlittens #DiverseCozy #SeriesLove2023 #FoodandLit and #IndependentWomen buddy reads.
