Rachel_nyc Cool! I‘ve been looking forward to this since I heard she had a new one. 10mo
Chrissyreadit Agh This book has so many components I love- matriarchy, multicultural, historical fiction- but I‘m terrified to read it because I can‘t bare sad endings and the book comments all indicate heartbreaking. 10mo
tpixie What a fun trip!! Looks like a moving story. @Chrissyreadit (edited) 10mo

Day 27 - Historical Fiction
I love this book, and it‘s sequel Dreams of Joy. I learned a lot about the Chinese immigrant experience during the 40‘s and about the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution in China under Mao. It was fascinating!

Went to a used book sale today with @Blueberry 😀 I didn't find any of the books I was looking for, but I did get these. All books I've tried getting from the library and never arrived 😂

I never realized how many of my favorite authors are named “Lisa”, same as me! Here are the “Lisa” books that I read in 2017. #LisaWingate, #LisaScottoline, #LisaSee, #LisaGardner, #LisaJackson.

One of my fav books from the past year, it‘s a sweeping epic taking place during the rise of Communism in China that‘s emotional & revealing in what it means to be a mother, as well as the naivety of being young, impulsive, & idealistic. It‘s the sequel to Shanghai Girls, which is a story about the struggles & profound bond sisterhood in a time of war.

Holy shit, this book took all my emotions & threw 'em into an intense-as-fudge meat grinder & marinated it w/tension. I'm such an incoherent mess right now.

The detailed storytelling of life during the 1st decade of Mao's reign & communism is heart-shatteringly raw. The book explores the brutal reality of the era w/courage via deeply complex characters & unbelievably captivating prose. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
