Originally published in 1985, “I Am Your Sister“ is a short yet insightful essay regarding the homophobia and heterosexism in Black communities and how it is used as a silencing tool to divide and further oppress Black women. This is a critical read for all feminists, anti-racists, and/or LGBTQIA advocates.

The more romance I read, the more I start to learn about the tropes. I haven't read a lot of male/female regency romance but apparently this counts as regency, between a countess widow and a female astronomer who is also skilled at translating. There is a thread in this story about artistic embroidery that may have been my favorite part (and not just one character doing it!) ⤵️

ReadingEnvy I then read an overall positive but fact-checking review from another romance writer, KJ Charles, who pointed out that in this era there was a quite famous lady astronomer in the UK, and she is never mentioned in this book. So perhaps the historical fiction elements are more fantasy than factual, but it is still an enjoyable read. I also like the beautiful cover even if it doesn't really match the character descriptions. 2d
Cathythoughts It is a beautiful cover ✨❤️ 2d

Lorde wrote a powerful book about coming of age in the 50s.Black, poor , Lesbian, she knew she would be a poet.She also knew all the things she was will make her voice unforgettable.Leaving home at 17 , she worked grueling jobs to keep herself alive .Plath knew she would be a poet too . Her book the Bell Jar and Lordes book both have sections on NYC in 1953 where the execution of the Rosenbergs are on the minds of both women.

Today is book club day and due to holidays our group did a collection of short stories so we could skip around if necessary. I read the whole book but I wrote down my faves. Finished just in time too!

#NovemberWrapUp
This was a great book month! And while most everything I read this month was awesome in their own right, my #BestReadOfNovember is, hands down, Heartstopper Volume 2! There were several close contenders, but this one just really connected with me, there's a reason I read it twice this month!
