How did she know I needed so badly to hear that today? 😭🥰 #kismet

#WanderingJune Yesterday‘s #BookMail works perfectly for today‘s #DownUnder prompt #kismet Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish journalist, seeks refuge in Australia but is held in Manus Island Prison for no cause. He secretly smuggled out his harrowing account which is this book. I was first made aware of this memoir from @Abailliekaras who wrote a beautiful review on Litsy.

Cathythoughts I agree with you all ♥️stacking 7mo
Joanne1 The fact he wrote this book as text messages in his phone that he sent to a friend to piece together blows my mind. Important and incredible. #bringthemhere 7mo
Dragonfairykats My library doesn't have this ☹ 7mo
BarbaraBB @Joanne1 That‘s incredible. 💔 7mo
Abailliekaras I‘m still reeling from this book! And troubled that his situation hasn‘t changed. 7mo

Reviewsbylola I love Lippman but then she had a clunker a few years ago that really disappointed me, so much so that I took her off my must read list. 😆 I got a copy of this one so we‘ll see. 7mo

I just belatedly realized that this was a #nightorientedtitle - it‘s got both moon and evening in it. And while I love the artwork and the diverse supernatural creatures (werewolves, shapeshifters, fairies and more), the storyline is a bit confusing. So it‘s a cute confusing read if you‘re into that sort of thing. #booked2019

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great choice for the prompt! ✔️ 9mo

At the Morristown Festival of Books at a panel with Fiona Davis (The Dollhouse, The Address, The Masterpiece) and Kate Quinn (The Alice Network)! So fascinating listening to them talk. The Dollhouse was stemmed from a planned article. Quinn was inspired by "The Queen of Spies" moniker. #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob #bookfestival #booktalk

bookandcat Quinn shared that she named her fictional character Marguerite after daisies (due to flower themes in her novel) and later discovered THERE ACTUALLY WAS A REAL PERSON WITH THAT NAME! She took the "what if" from her research about Marguerite and ran with it. #kismet 1y
bookandcat Fiona Davis is under contract for two more books about NYC buildings (one is due in Aug, about the Chelsea Hotel) but would like to write about Europe or something after that! 1y
bookandcat Kate Quinn on research: reminds folks to start queries with "So this is for a book" when sending emails to your mother asking "What are the early onset signs of syphilis?" ?? 1y

I couldn‘t put this book down! I was not only able to learn more about the Indian culture through this love story, but I was able to establish parallels to any and every culture. I especially loved the message at the end ❤️❤️ #kismet #fate #destiny #followyourheart

Chelleo This was a super cute book! I loved Rishi 2y
