#TBRtemptation post 4! From the author of “Bird Box” comes another tense read, according to the reviewers! J is one of 26 boys are being taught as prodigies at an isolated school deep in the woods. On the other side of the forest is a parallel school for just girls. K has never seen a boy, J‘s never seen a girl. They meet and work to figure out what their schools are up to...and learn about themselves. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

#WeeklyForecast

The two on the bottom left & center are #currentreads which I hope to finish soon. On my plate for the week includes selections for #NFNov & #nonfiction2019 and my last book for #mgme #bbrc which also overlaps with a #pop19 prompt.

The Goodreads Award nominees are announced this week, so I may throw this forecast out the window then. 🤣💨

#TBRtemptations post #4! On the National Book Awards‘s fiction longlist! This is an intimate letter from a son addressed to his single mother. It is a novel of revealing one‘s self, the complicated relationship between mother and son, and understanding one‘s own familial background, in this case to Vietnam. The poet has written a novel that seems to be unanimously loved for its prose by reviewers. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
