Love Medicine: A Novel | Louise Erdrich
post image

WOW! What a month! While I didn‘t accomplish all the reading I planned, I did great! And I even added a cookbook to my list (obsessed!!!). #SheSaid #AuthorAMonth #PemberLittens #AuldLangSpine

PS: #LittensLoveRomance don‘t waste your time with the next Covens of Eaton Falls. It has the same issues we complained about, which is a shame bc the premise is good! Very disappointing.

StayCurious Thanks for letting me know! 1d
MoonWitch94 @StayCurious You‘re welcome! No need for anyone else to waste precious reading time 😆 20h

Four Souls | Louise Erdrich

It was a quick read and beautifully written. The story of Fleur Pillager (told from her sister in laws point of view) and her need for revenge - as well as Nanapush and Margaret's 'love' story (more comedic). All the characters are well fleshed out and I can only imagine what reading the whole series would add to this book. The way revenge was handled throughout the book and the way it ends is magnificent. I absolutely loved this book.

I @Soubhiville forgot to post my #AuthorAMonth read for January. I finished it last week. And I really liked it. I think I might have to add more Louise Erdrich to my TBR. I like finding new to me authors. Thanks @Soubhiville

East meets West (US, at least); modern meets ancient; living meet dead. So many comings together, but also some moving apart. Erdrich paints a picture neither romanticized nor bleak. We love her characters for their noble actions and in spite of their foibles. I love immersing myself in her worlds. #authoramonth @Soubhiville

Currey I just finished The Sentence and was delighted by all the references to books I love. She is an American treasure 7d
Lcsmcat @Currey I can‘t say there‘s any book by her that I haven‘t liked. Some more than others, but all are amazing. 7d
Suet624 I agree that she has never disappointed me. Such good stories. If you like her, have you tried her non-fiction book? I thought it was beautiful. 7d
Lcsmcat @Suet624 I haven‘t read that one, but I did enjoy the nonfiction 7d
Suet624 Oh that looks interesting... 7d

4/5⭐ Not an easy book. It depicts the grim reality of living in the USA as a Native American woman: the racism, police brutality, sexual assault & rape, murder, kidnapping, cultural annihilation, dehumanization, & injustice at every level possible. The author's voice shines through with so many emotions & self-reflections. These are the historical & current issues that can't be brushed under a rug & can't continue to be unrepaired. #roll100

I finished 1 of my month-long reads today. The first Norton Anthology of Native Nations poetry features 161 poets spanning from hundreds of years ago to the present, most of whom I would be interested in reading more work from. This is separated into 4 geographical regions following pre-state boundaries, and I was surprised to see how much more I connected with the poetry of regions I‘d lived in. #Pantone2023 #AiryBlue #Sharreadathon #20in4

Tracks | Louise Erdrich

I tried. I promise I tried. I gave all three of these a shot and I just couldn‘t do it. Tried print and audio. Clearly there is something wrong with me. I just do not enjoy Louise Erdrich. Definitely not her fault. So I have DNF‘d three books in January. Can‘t wait for February #authoramonth crew!

Tamra Her books have been hit and miss for me, but two of them are my favorite reading experiences. Who knows? Sometimes things click and sometimes they don‘t. 🤷🏾‍♀️ 1w
Bklover I am going to try Tracks and LaRose again in the future. It may just be timing. @Tamra 1w
dabbe Nothing wrong with you whatsoever! Two years from now you might love her. Or not. Glad you moved on! 👏❣️🤗 1w
