#GratefulReads Day 16: This was a case of #ThoughtYouWouldntLikeButDid. This is the perfect poolside read: plot-driven, lots of funny dialogue, story-within-a-story format, death, mystery, and erotic stories. I am glad that this is my first Singapore read for #WomenReadWomen2019. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kpZ

#GratefulReads Day 4: My current read is #Under250Pages as I am bringing it on my upcoming overseas trip to New Mexico in two days‘ time! Seems like a fitting collection by a female novelist for our #WomenReadWomen2019 theme.

My weekend. Still have around 72 boxes more to unpack. Meanwhile, working on an entire shelf filled with only women writers - predominantly women of colour. #WomenReadWomen2019 at GatheringBooks.

Repost for @GatheringBooks :

#WomenReadWomen2019 Question 2 of 3 is here! The book tackled issues of im/migration, self and identity, and crossing geographical/linguistic/cultural boundaries quite fearlessly. Looking forward to your responses to this one. Just indicate spoiler if your responses will be fairly detailed.

Thanks to @andrew61 for putting this book on my radar. Told in multiple POVs, Stella a young indigenous mother, witnesses a crime through her window but based on both her heritage and location it‘s nearly 4 hours before the police arrive bringing with them their own prejudices. It‘s an honest but bleak look at stereotypes, cultural differences and unacceptable norms, cycles of violence & aggression especially towards native women. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Reagan-reads Great review! This has been on my list for a while but I‘ll have to bump it up! 2mo
Cinfhen I hope you do @Reagan-reads It was a powerful read and a real page turner 2mo
TrishB Great review 👍🏻 I thought this was a good, tough read. 2mo

Thanks to @youneverarrived for co-hosting #NYRBBookClub September's selection. Thanks to everyone in the group for a thorough & lively discussion yesterday! I'm looking forward to co-hosting October with one of the first Littens I ever interacted with @LeahBergen I can't wait to see your choices for November @Leftcoastzen !

MicheleinPhilly I will read this one! I‘ve been slacking BIGLY. 2mo
GatheringBooks Thanks for this! Unfortunately, I will have to skip this title again because of our #WomenReadWomen2019 theme, but will still follow closely and watch from afar, until the next title. 2mo

MicheleinPhilly @saresmoore I‘ve actually read this one before. It‘s SOOOO good. 2mo
batsy Thank you! Can't wait to read this one! It's been TBR for ever so long 😆 2mo
Aimeesue Could you add me to the group to be tagged list, if such a thing exists? I'd like to keep reading with y'all, but I know I'll forget if I don't see the posts. Thanks! 2mo
Leftcoastzen The pressures on ! 2mo
LeahBergen Yessss! I can‘t wait, my long-time Litsy chum! 😘 2mo
sprainedbrain Ughhh... this one is still on hold and I‘m getting nervous! 2mo
sisilia I‘m a bit scared to read this. Must I put it in the freezer when things go wild? 😅@vivastory @MicheleinPhilly @saresmoore @batsy @Aimeesue @Leftcoastzen @Liz_M @LeahBergen @sprainedbrain 2mo
sprainedbrain @sisilia the freezer is always an option! 😂 2mo
Leftcoastzen @sisilia 😂Freezer book! I may have to do that!This book has been on my radar for years , glad I have some reading partners for it. 2mo
Leftcoastzen @sprainedbrain if you have a little paperback exchange in your town,the old mass market might be sitting there. 2mo
sprainedbrain @Leftcoastzen I‘m thinking pretty seriously about doing the Audible free trial and listening to it. 😬 2mo
Leftcoastzen @sprainedbrain understand your frustration, I don‘t have audible cuz I don‘t listen enough to make it pay..free trial tempting when you are in a jam. 2mo
