How to Pronounce Knife: Stories | Souvankham Thammavongsa
post image
Pickpick

This was such a delightful collection of short stories. I feel like poets often have such rich, tight purpose and this book certainly supports that theory. Centering the experiences of Laotian people in Canada, Thammavongsa writes a series of complex and endearing characters. Very enjoyable.

This was such an excellent book. It's gritty. It paints an unflinching portrait of trauma and addiction and poverty in Scotland under Thatcher. It is so well written it makes you feel so strongly for the characters and their struggles. Glad to have started the year with such a great read. #queerbooks

Women Talking: A Novel | Miriam Toews
post image
Pickpick

I had been nervous to read this book because of the subject matter (a Mennonite community where women and children are being drugged and raped at night) but I'm glad I finally took the plunge. The book is about the women deciding what to do in light of what has happened. It's about justice and collective decision making and faith and autonomy and love. It's powerful and funny and sweet at times, heart-breaking at others.

Reggie Yeah, she did a really good job of not having this book be a one note of anger kind of book. I really like this. 2y
Bibliogeekery @Reggie that's SUCH a good way of putting it! 2y
Moray_Reads It's so well done, so much nuance. I love Miriam Toews 2y

This was such a well written tale of the Spanish Flu in Dublin told through the eyes of a midwife named Julia. She toils for three days in a small fever maternity ward in the book and we learn so much about loss, deprivation, resilience and love. Very intense to read during the current pandemic but that also made it extra poignant. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am sad to be done it. #queerbooks

Just starting this book by one of my favourite authors. I attended a zoom launch for this book where she spoke about the wild coincidence of her writing a book about a pandemic in Ireland during the war right before an actual pandemic. The publisher actually pushed the publication date ahead a year because it was so timely. #queerbooks

Reviewsbylola I enjoyed this one so much. Hearing her speak would be amazing! 2y

This was such a pleasure to read. Madeline Miller is so skillful at breathing life and vitality into mythology. Even though I knew so many of the stories she told through Circe's eyes I was riveted with her telling of them. So enjoyable.

I decided it was time to revisit this beloved audiobook. So gritty and heartwarming and real. Also, my psychotherapist self likes to imagine being so directive and bossy and definitive with my clients even though I never would be like that.

The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern

Pickpick

This book was the perfect whimsical escape from the pandemic dystopian reality we are living in. At a book launch for it I heard the author describe the concept for it as if someone didn't go through the door to Narnia as a child and then had a second chance when they were older. A mystical library, stories within stories, and an impossible seeming quest (or two). A great read!

Hi folks. So I'm sick, my doctor has reported me to public health with presumptive COVID19. I can't get tested because I don't work in a public setting so I'm in isolation at home with instructions to go to the hospital if I worsen. I haven't been able to concentrate on reading but books and book people are so comforting to me so thanks for being here, Litsy pals. 💕 (I also find pictures of jellyfish comforting)

I love this billboard in Toronto! My nervous system needs a little pandemic soothing - practicing social distancing and curling up with a bunch of books. I was supposed to fly to Cuba today for March break but had to cancel due to COVID19.

How is everyone's pandemic anxiety?

AlaMich Through the roof on Friday. I work at an elementary school and we were waiting to see if we would close. Also concerned about elderly family members. 3y

Bookwomble Despite having just discovered I'm classed as vulnerable, I'm actually not that bothered. I'm taking sensible precautions, which is all one can reasonably do. Not sure what's happening at work - I meet members of the community in one-to-one appointments, and I'm wondering whether we'll be made to socially distance soon. I'm thinking next week's team meeting should probably be cancelled, though 🙂 3y
