Melismatic
Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

I really loved this book - even tho it‘s not something I‘d typically gravitate toward. Featured two distinct timelines (that related), expertly showcasing how history repeats itself. All of the characters were truthfully human and believable in their flaws. Definitely recommend!

I wasn‘t expecting to like this book as much as I did. It follows a year ( each chapter covers one month) of the Alvarado family. Oscar, the patriarch is a born & bred Angeleno of Mexican descent, who comes from a line of prosperous ranchers/farmers. Oscar understands & respects the importance of weather & all of its implications. His wife & 3 daughters take most things for granted, as each has achieved levels of success. 👇🏼

Cinfhen The book opens with a life changing event, which then escalates. A lot occurs in this one year, but sometimes life throws shit at you. Umm, hello 2020!! #Booked2022 #AboutSisters #Pop22 #LatinxAuthor @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @Megabooks @BarbaraBB @KarenUK @Cortg @Laughterhp @RaeLovesToRead @jenniferw88 @Kalalalatja 20h

BarbaraBB Oh 2020. 😊 13h
Megabooks Glad you liked it more than I did. 👍🏻👍🏻💜 8h
Cinfhen Yeah, this book is set in 2016 with the arrival of a Trump Presidency @BarbaraBB @TrishB and it kind of ends on a cliffhanger so I‘m curious if the author will write a sequel. I‘d be totally open to that but not sure if @Megabooks would 😁 5h
BarbaraBB I think I‘ll like it. #stacked 4h
Cinfhen I do think you‘d like it @BarbaraBB it‘s not OUTSTANDING but definitely compelling. It would make for a great TV series. (edited) 4h
Megabooks Lol no 😂😂 now

I really enjoyed this book. It‘s my second by this author and I plan to read more. It‘s a beautiful story of a grandmother, her daughter, and her granddaughter and the charms on her bracelet that have many stories for living that she wants them to know for them to use in their own lives.

I‘ve seen lots of mixed reviews but so far I‘m intrigued. I like that the mom is of Mexican Jewish decent. I have several friends here in Israel who are originally from Mexico, their relatives fled from Eastern Europe before & during WWII and settled in Mexico. #Pop22 #LatinxAuthor #Booked2022 #AboutSisters

Megabooks I wondered what you‘d think of this when I read it, but I didn‘t like it enough to recommend. 2d
Cinfhen I remember it was a meh for you @Megabooks but I‘m liking it 💓💓💓 2d

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you so much for this lovely gift! I can‘t wait to read this book, the lovely bath salts (am I right this is for the bath?), note cards, candy and hot chocolate! But the little reader‘s journal….Ha….we sell these in the hospital gift shop! I had bought a few for swaps and gifts but not for me so thank you! You are so sweet and kind. Thank you for your friendship. 😘

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yes, they are bath salts! Let me know if you like them! I love those little journals! I found them at a shop in the mountains! I‘m happy it arrived safely! Thank you for your friendship all of these years! ❤️❤️❤️ 3d

This is an entertaining MG story with all the ups and downs of middle school, kitten siblings, a taxidermied opossum and a walnut tree. Definite Flipped vibes (although they aren‘t exactly the same) with this one. Also a good story about making friends, moving and settling into a new place, family and history.
