I really enjoyed this book! I had to get used to the teenage blogger narrator (found her lexicon very annoying initially, particularly on audiobook). It's a dystopian story (chillingly only slightly different than our dystopian reality) where two teenage girls are fleeing false accusations of terrorism for a pro-choice bombing at a purity ball. Thought-provoking, disturbing at times, tender at others. Extra points for a sweet trans kid character!

I think I liked this series better at the beginning. That being said, I still gobbled this one up. I'm a sucker for a cosy mystery these days - such a great escape from the news cycle!

Not book related but does anyone know what this plant is called? I want to look up how to care for it but don't know what it is.

gradcat I don‘t know what it is, but I love the way it looks. I hope someone finds an answer for you, and that they post it here. ♥️ 2mo
gradcat I tried to find it...is it possibly an African Spear Snake Plant? 🐍 🌱 ❤️ 2mo
Bibliogeekery @gradcat that's it! Thanks SO much!! 🌿💕😍 2mo

gradcat I was right? Yay!! I just put a literal description in Google images, and found it that way. It is a striking looking plant, I must say. ♥️ 2mo

Next up on audiobook!

Prairiegirl_reading I had no idea this was coming out. I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped in at Starbucks for a quick coffee and decided to check out the indigo that is attached and found this on the new release shelf! And on sale to boot!! I loved the girls and the mountain story. This one sounds so good, I‘m so curious if it‘s any good. Btw stopping at Starbucks is just an excuse for book shopping. 😉 3mo

Room Full of Bones | Elly Griffiths

Mehso-so

This was my least favourite Ruth Galloway novel so far. I felt like there were too many different things going on in this one. I also felt that even though I think she meant this one to be respectful toward Aboriginal Australians I still thought it came across as "othering" and exotifying. She also mixes gender and sexuality up repeatedly. I still care about these characters and want to read more but this one was not as strong as the others.

I read this one aloud on the way home from my road trip. (I didn't have wifi so am posting all my trip books today). This was another fun reread for me. I love Binti and the complex coming or age issues she faces - becoming part jellyfish, have alien DNA activated in her - you know, the usual stuff. 😂 Looking forward to book three!

Another enjoyable foray into Ruth Galloway! Cosy mysteries (that have a bit of intellectual content) are so satisfying to read. It always make me laugh though, at how much misfortune happens in these small communities!

This was a good holiday read for me. I'm not sure how much I would have enjoyed it otherwise. It feels like it's trying to be gritty and transgressive but still read like a pretty fluffy book to me. That being said, I was immersed in the world she created and felt attached to the characters. I can definitely picture book club discussing this one over white wine!

rachelm Ditto all that! I enjoyed it. It was a good audiobook too! 3mo

This was a powerful collection of short stories. A definite content warning for sexual assault for people considering reading this one! Gay has woven such a variety of different narratives that centre Haiti or Haitian people, from the mystical to the mundane. Well worth the read! #queerbooks

I just revisited this old favourite. Such an exquisite book. This is how historical fiction should always be written. It's romantic, gritty, and evokes the lives of the people who worked to build parts of the city I live in (Toronto).

Moray_Reads I've read a couple by Ondaatje but I'm not familiar with this one. Adding it to the TBR 3mo

Binging this show is getting in the way of my reading! 📺📚 Has anyone read the comics? Are they as good as the show?

GrilledCheeseSamurai I loved the comics and the show pretty much equally. The comics are a tich more crazy than the show as they can get away with a bit more. An example would be in the comics they all have jet packs to zip around on. 🤷‍♂️😅 3mo

This was a delightful collection of LGBTQ2SIA+ stories. It's full of whimsy and magic and romance with great artwork. The back of the book says "Our stories have heroes who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and asexual, from creators who share these identities." ?️‍?? #queerbooks #transbooks #nonbinarybooks

Gingerbread: A Novel | Helen Oyeyemi

This book was beautiful and exquisitely written but also was somehow hard for me to get through. Oyeyemi creates an abstract, whimsical, gritty, deeply complex reimagining of gingerbread narratives in fairy tales. I loved it at times and was dying for it to end at others.

Aimeesue Yep. It was a tough one. Glad I read it, though. 3mo

Thanks for the suggestions for group reads for my road trip yesterday! Today I am looking for suggestions for my own reading on the trip. I'm in a bit of a slump. I'm looking for fun queer books, whodunnits (similar to Louise Penny or Kate Atkinson), shortish engaging not devastating narratives etc. Any suggestions?

Road Trip! | Jan Fields
post image

I need some suggestions! I am going on a road trip with two well-read sci-fi fantasy geeks and want to find some good collections of short stories, or fun relatively quick reads that we can read to each other or listen to on audiobook. I'm less into sci-fi than them so nothing too technical. Any thoughts?

Zelma Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, The Martian by Andy Weir or 3mo
xicanti Bujold‘s Vorkosigan books are all relatively short and enjoyable on audio. SHARDS OF HONOUR is a good starting place. Ditto JANE, UNLIMITED, an SF + other stuff novel by Kristin Cashore, and DOUBLE STAR by Robert A Heinlein. For short fiction, HOW LONG TIL BLACK FUTURE MONTH? by N.K. Jemisin is great, and the Clarkesworld podcast has tons and tons of free short fiction. 3mo

Big Sky | Kate Atkinson

This wasn't my favourite Kate Atkinson. I think she wrote her odious men too well and also the trafficking girls and women narrative was just too real for me. That being said, I'm giving it a "pick" because I couldn't stop reading it and cared about the story and some of the characters.

I forgot to post a review for this book! This is a weird, funny, fast-paced novel set in the Galapagos with a very interesting and entertaining take on global apocalypse. I don't want to say much more because it would be too easy to spoil this story. A very quirky enjoyable read - it was great company for me in the Galapagos!
