Such a Fun Age | Kiley Reid
post image
Pickpick

This is a surprising debut from a new American author. It might look like a light summer read, but underneath lurks a searing critique of race, class, and good intentions. Such A Fun Age is one for fans of An American Marriage, and other contemporary fiction that tackles the most important questions of our time.

So I am just a little late, life has been so busy! These are the books that I took home to read over the summer. They were all really great, but a few really stood out to me: Enchantee, Sadie, The Hazel Wood, The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge, We Are Okay, and Heretics Anonymous. #summerreading #favorites #2019reading

Lord of the Flies | Golding William

I really didn‘t enjoy Lord Of The Flies. In fact, I kind of resented it. Assigning it to school kids feels like force-feeding them a cautionary tale: “behave the way that the hypocritical adults tell you to, or look how you‘ll end up!”. Really, could it be any more patronising? Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/lord-of-the-flies-william-golding/ #SummerReading

I didn‘t read nearly as much as I planned to this month but at least I checked these off my long term tbr. I‘m not sure if it was a coincidence or my subconscious at work but these authors were all part of the ‘Beat Generation‘. I feel like I‘ve been living in an era just before I was born. #augustwrapup #summerreading #august #wrapup

George wakes up in an empty room and doesn't remember how he got there, he only got instructions to listen to.On his way, he meets people who, like him, have been abducted from the earth.
An interesting, tense well-written short sf story.
