This will be my final physical book of 2022. I‘m very much hoping to get it finished for #booked2022 #hopepunk by tonight! So far I‘m absolutely in love with it and I think it will make my top books of the year list!

Dawn | Octavia E. Butler
post image

Although published in 1979, Butler envisions a future for the Earth that‘s not just possible but probable. And amid the futuristic story, she writes about top-of-mind topics in our century. Butler teaches her readers through Lilith‘s experiences. You‘ll examine what it means to be human and how another race of beings might see us. Can‘t wait for part 2!

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Reggie 💯 Clearly, Octavia had no rose-colored glasses when observing human behavior. I‘m really trying to stretch out her books, in between wanting to devour everything quick AF. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen This would be a great choice for #partofatrilogy for #booked2023. I may use book 2 for just that! 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Aimeesue Yaaas!! She is amazing! 1mo
BookBelle84 I saw these covers at the bookstore the other day and absolutely loved them 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @BookBelle84 I agree! I read an ebook with an older cover design. This one has so much more punch! 1mo

Read this for #hopepunk for #booked2022 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was heartfelt and adorable and all the characters popped off the page for me. Teared up a few times as well.
This marks the completion of #booked2022 for me. Onto next year's challenge!

Thank you #booked2022 for introducing me to the term #hopepunk ! Hope Punk was coined in 2017. The characters fight for positive versions of future worlds.This book is listed as being a part of that sci- fi genre. Set in post climate disaster Alberta, a young woman infected with a mysterious parasite must decide whether to remain with her mother in the community that has nurtured her, or to take a chance on a different future with many unknowns.

Cinfhen Hurray!!! You‘re on a roll!! 2mo
DivineDiana @Cinfhen Only one more to finish it up! 🙂 2mo
Cinfhen Woohoo 🥳 🙌🏻 2mo

A different kind of book. Open-ending Novella, so might not be for everyone.

I see why this book has got so many good reviews. John Green‘s essays are funny and serious and I love the idea of reviewing the Anthropocene. BUT there were quite a few essays which didn‘t work for me. Some of the very American subjects I could not associate with. So, a light pick and my #HopePunk choice for #Booked22. Thank you for sending me this one Cindy 😘

Cinfhen I can see how this would not 💯 be relatable to you!! Glad you enjoyed parts of it 🧡 3mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I certainly did! And I loved his ratings! 3mo
squirrelbrain Great review! 3mo

BarbaraBB @Megabooks Exactly! I was so glad he likes soccer and is a Liverpool fan 😃 3mo
Chelsea.Poole Love this book! @Megabooks every time is see Canada geese (at least once a day! 😜) I think of him! 😂 3mo

I love the concept of this novella - that our future need not be doom & gloom. This was childlike and enchanting - a sweet escape. Works for #HugoAwardWinner #pop22 and #Booked2022 #HopePunk ♥️ #Hoopla

Cortg Excellent! 3mo
BarbaraBB Great that you ended up liking it. Did you finish pop now? 3mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! I finished pop + the bonus prompts @BarbaraBB @Cortg 🙌🏻♥️ but I won‘t be moving on with this series!!! 3mo

Cortg But you liked it! I just picked it up at work. It may sit on my desk a while and may (or may not) get read. We‘ll see. Sounds like something different though, and that‘s what I liked. 3mo
Megabooks Congratulations on finishing pop!! 🎉🎉🎉 3mo
Centique Well done you! It‘s certainly oddball but once you settle into it, it‘s a sweet story 3mo
Cinfhen Oddball is a perfect word choice @Centique but so is sweet for this one!! Thanks @Megabooks 😁I‘m excited to see the new prompts for #pop23 3mo
Cinfhen I have a feeling you‘ll enjoy the strangeness @Cortg it‘s sort of simple and comforting 3mo

Who‘d have thought I‘d like a book set in the future, with a robot? Well, I did; it was a very sweet book - not at all robot-y! I‘m not sure I‘d read any more in the series though.

This is my last book for #booked2022 #hopepunk- yay!

I‘m also using this for #hugoawardwinner for #pop22 & only have two more books to go for that challenge. One I‘ve just started on audio, and the other is the #authoramonth for November - how organised am I?! 😇

MicheleinPhilly Very. Can you please organize my non-reading life? 😉 3mo
Cinfhen Fantastic 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼this book is next up for me and will also be my final book for #Pop22 and #Booked2022 😊 3mo

BarbaraBB Are you torturing me dear Helen? The most beautiful parcel just arrived for my birthday! I have to hide it to stop myself from opening it before November 13! Thank you soooo much ❤️❤️ 3mo
squirrelbrain You can open it early if you wish! @BarbaraBB - I sent it really early as we‘re having a lot of postal strikes here so I wanted to allow plenty of time! (Perhaps a bit too much time! 🤣) 3mo
JamieArc Good job finishing the #Booked2022 prompts! This is my first year participating and I think I‘m actually going to finish with just 4 prompts left. 3mo
squirrelbrain Hopefully you‘ll finish too! 🤞 @JamieArc 3mo
BarbaraBB I‘ll wait. It‘s kind of nice to know that it‘s hidden there, behind my books! 3mo
Caroline2 Yay! I‘ll try not to bail this time. 😆 although I have been bailing like a mad thing lately!!! 🤦‍♀️ 3mo
