Roll the Dice | Wayne Avrashow

Just finished my #Roll100 booklist for 2024. I hope @PuddleJumper is continuing this reading challenge! Either way, my goal for the new year is to focus on my owned books!

PuddleJumper Oh yes it's carrying on! 1m

This is a tenderly funny look at a bunch of middle aged men who gather each year to reenact the football game where Joe Theismann‘s thigh was snapped. Bachelder did a great job of giving each man a distinct personality in a very short space. I rarely read a book that gives a group of men such emotional depth. #roll100

Ruthiella I loved this book and I don‘t even understand football as a game. 😂 15h
Reggie They were all so neurotic in here. 8h

Barbara is such an interesting person! As a woman of her generation, she married young and unconditionally supported her husband whether it was moving to Texas or running for president without asking her opinion. But she did have opinions of her own and expressed them as she could be it was wearing a pro-choice button at the 1980 Republican convention or working with AIDS charities when others in her party were turning away. #roll100

Tamra Wow, I wish more were so courageous now! 3d
Megabooks @Tamra yes, and in her final interviews with the author before her death, she said she no longer considered herself a Republican because of the direction the Party was going under Trump. They asked many of the other people interviewed if HW or W would‘ve been president without her influence and the older generation said yes, HW would have, but Boomers and younger gave her the credit I (Xer) thinks she should have! 2d
Tamra @Megabooks 👏🏾👏🏾 2d

Asexual Fairy Tales | Elizabeth Hopkinson
post image
Panpan

This is not an anthology of asexual fairy tales or even fairy tales reimagined with asexual people.

If I'm being kind, it could be more aro than ace but I'm not being kind because this book is offensive.

Most of the stories were about people avoiding unwanted marriage or avoiding or escaping sexual assault.

⬇️

PuddleJumper There is one story that involves raping a comotose woman but it's ok because they were together before she fell into a coma.

Throughout the different stories there was a ‘sex bad and disgusting‘ vibe and that people were virtuous for not wanting it. There are sex repulsed asexual people (and other people) and that's ok but not everyone that is ace thinks that.
⬇️

PuddleJumper It does not represent asexuality at all. The stories didn't even include asexuality. It's very confusing and offensive. 4d

This was cute! It dragged a bit in the middle but Williams did a great job of keeping the story interesting and finding fun ways for Daniel and Nadia to keep missing each other.

Roll 90 for #roll100

Adult on child sexual abuse is a hard pass for me, especially if that‘s what the whole second half is going to revolve around. DNF at 52%. #doublespin 💔😢

TheAromaofBooks Sounds like a good decision 😕 5d

Suet624 There were just so many things I disliked about this book but I would have to write an essay to explain my issues with the book. 5d
Megabooks @Suet624 I felt like she was punished for enjoying sex. Like she‘s gotten her groove back but boom that makes her a horrible, thoughtless mother all of a sudden. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 4d
Suet624 That‘s it EXACTLY but I wasn‘t sure how to put that into words. It really pissed me off. I was a single mom when I read the book and I felt as though the book was saying I was a bad mother if I found a guy who actually liked my child too. And no sex for me until my daughter moved out of the house. 4d
Megabooks @Suet624 right? At first I kind of liked her portrayal of an amicable divorce, but just because a man gets along with your child and satisfies you sexually doesn‘t automatically make him creepy or with ill intent. 🙄 it really sent the wrong message. 4d
Suet624 I‘m so glad to hear you say all this. I figured I was the only one who felt this way. 4d

My #bookspin and #doublespin, and some of the other books I‘m choosing from. I‘m thinking of doing a bingo board for the first time in months, too!

I‘m already ⅓ into Good Mother, which is a #roll100 choice, and Lake House is for #AuthorAMonth! 👍🏻🎉

Caryl I love your rainbow of books! 📚 6d
