⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️.5 This book is a social commentary about the limits placed on women‘s agency & decision-making, especially WOC. I recommend it for readers who enjoy leaning into a critical lens that explores oppressive systems & mechanisms of resistance. If you enjoy magical realism, you may also enjoy this book. I did have trouble escaping into the world that the author was trying to build. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/5189143639

BarbaraBB We‘ll be discussing this book on March 5 as part of our #IndependentWomen weekend hosted by @Cinfhen and myself. You‘re very welcome to join us. Let me know if you‘d like to, then I‘ll add you to our taglist (edited) 1w

@BarbaraBB @Cinfhen NYPL BOOK OF THE DAY 👀

The Women Could Fly: A Novel

A novel about the unbreakable bond between a young woman and her mysterious mother, set in a world in which witches are real and single women are persecuted. Jo is 28, and any woman who is unmarried by age 30 must be monitored by the state. What does her future hold?

My Christmas book haul provided by my friends and family with vouchers and cash. I don‘t tend to buy new books throughout the year so this is a real treat! 💚♥️
The tagged book I bought because there is a buddy read happening on Litsy in March I think? But I can‘t remember who organised it. I‘m sure I will get a tag! 🤣

Cinfhen It‘s us!!!!! Me and @BarbaraBB #IndependentWomen ❣️❣️❣️Great haul 😍 1mo
Reggie How nice! 1mo
BarbaraBB So many good ones! Looking forward to our #IndependentWomen buddyread! 1mo

jlhammar Wow, great stack! The Bass Rock, The Colony and The Trees are all favorites of mine. I‘m really looking forward to The Twyford Code since I enjoyed The Appeal. 1mo

What. A. Book.
My heart stopped in the last pages and I don‘t know if it will ever beat the same way again. This is a book that doesn‘t solve. Doesn‘t answer. But leaves so many beautiful terrifying energizing questions. And some weird form of hope I‘d lost previously. Writer- you are magic. Writing, next to rainstorms, is my favorite form of magic. I will def be rereading this soon. More then once. #magic #women #love #live #5stars #fav

Deblovestoread Love this review! Will be reading next year for #IndependentWomen buddy read on March 5. 2mo
