I bought this one a few years ago, and I still need to read it, but I think it's perfect for #TuneintoNovember #Overpowered. Sybil is one of the most famous cases of multiple personalities disorder. She is overpowered by blackouts when one of her 16 other personalities take over.
As my #litsypartyofone continues, I'm enjoying my first Adichie very much. Not easy to witness how #overpowered the 15-year-old main character and her family are from her father's ultra- strict interpretation of what it means to live a godly life.
This #tuneintonovember post is a day late because I looked up Roisin Murphy and listened to her album with the tagged song today- great stuff- thanks @Robothugs for introducing me to her 😃🎶
I really enjoyed this creature feature!! It‘s exciting, well-written and just plain fun! It‘s a darkly exciting sort-of sciencey #Fantasy that draws easy comparisons to similar books in the sub-genre with humans #Overpowered and fascinating creatures with a #Bellyful of manmeat! Hard to put down!! #NoteworthyNovember #TuneIntoNovember #YESvember17 @Jess7 @Cinfhen @Robothugs @Libby1
So on first listen, #overpowered sounds like a break-up song, and this was he first book I thought of as a recent read that was about (potentially) a breakup and all of the feelings that go along with that. It wasn‘t a favorite read for me, but it was pretty solid. #tuneintonovember @Robothugs @Cinfhen
#TuneIntoNovember #day3 #Overpowered Playing catchup already, there's so many great photo challenges, I feel like I need to do them all but then I get really behind like last month and give up. So I'm keeping it to my fave 3. In The Hatching, the world is being overpowered by giant flesh eating spiders. This book made my skin crawl, j kept thinking something was crawling on me & freaking out. Plus the nightmares were awful. Not for arachnophobics!
#TuneIntoNovember #Overpowered I don't think I'm overpowered by them, but I do have several food & cookbooks with 'power' in the title or subtitle & after looking up this (unfamiliar to me) song's lyrics, they mention 'amaranth feelings' & brain oxy-toxins. Amaranth is grown & processed as food-it's GF & has protein & a host of other nutrients. Although I didn't go & look, it could easily be in one of these books. (See how I made that work?!)😆👍
This novel is about a seemingly ideal, quirky and sweet family and how they are #overpowered by an awful event. I ended up absolutely hating a couple of them! It‘s beautifully written but tells how families can be awful which might be hard going depending on your head space. Still lots to think about in terms of feminism here. Made me reassess some assumptions for sure 😳
