They Drown Our Daughters | Katrina Monroe

Bailedbailed

Mara Wilson's great audiobook narration can't save this book for me sadly. Something about it isn't grabbing me and it feels unbearably slow. I'm curious to know how it ends so if anyone wants to jump in and spoil it, let me know! Queer ocean horror gothic sounded right up my alley, but alas.

What Moves the Dead | T. Kingfisher
post image

Oof this is sadly not a good narrator. Weirdly overenunciated, too slow, and like, just not a good fit for the spooky content! The last straw was a terrible effort at a British accent. I am going to seek this out in print, because I am liking the story itself so far.

DimeryRene Ooof. I agree. I am listening to this too and I like the story, but I‘m having to listen to it on 1.4 speed and it still sounds like normal talking. 🤔 20h
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @DimeryRene haha, not a good sign! I kept thinking of the narrator of Dead Collections by Isaac Fellman who is nonbinary and did an amazing job with that spooky book and trans guy protagonist. They should have got them to do this book too! 18m

A Sentimental Education | Hannah McGregor

Essays from analyzing the politics of whiteness in beloved classics such as Anne of Green Gables to discussing the mechanics of podcasting and how it engenders intimacy and authenticity. The book is a master class in the seamless integration of tones, going from formal citations of Sara Ahmed to sentences like "Frankly, podcasting made me into a real hard-line bitch about open access". It made me laugh and cry as well as think and reflect deeply.

Gods of Want: Stories | K-Ming Chang
post image
Pickpick

I admired but didn't always love this collection of short fiction, including flash fiction as well as more traditional length short stories. K-Ming Chang's writing is so unique, full of strange and beautiful images and ideas, which the book focuses on more than character or plot. Her style feels more akin to poetry than fiction, especially the flash fiction which was my favourite. The stories are surreal, dark, sexy, queer, deeply weird.

Spear | Nicola Griffith
post image
Pickpick

A gorgeous old fashioned but also very queer King Arthur fantasy (a retelling of Percival the Knight, specifically) written and read by Nicola Griffith. I was very content to let this story take me on a ride of adventure, history, nature, and 6th century Welsh lesbians! Peretur is an interesting gender nonconforming heroine, half human and half god, whose superpower is being really in tune with the natural world and the environment around her.

Soubhiville I‘m waiting for my audio hold from the library. Glad you liked it! 💜 3w
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Soubhiville the audio is great! Nicola Griffith has a very soothing voice and it's cool to hear the Welsh names pronounced! 3w

Sirens and Muses: A Novel | Antonia Angress
post image
Bailedbailed

Unfortunately half of these characters (the women) compelled me and the other half (the men) didn't. These days an author would have to do some pretty extraordinary character work to make me care about cishet white men. This is despite lovely, smart writing, especially about making art and the art world. I was also interested in Angress's characterization of the different desires for genders that Louisa and Karina felt as bi women. 🤷‍♀️

I continue to deeply admire Melissa Febos: her beautifully crafted writing, rigorous feminist intellectual work, and her commitment to delving into topics others avoid: writing sex scenes, memoir as a feminized form, her own mistakes / growth as a writer. I suspect I would have gotten a bit more out of this if I was a creative writer myself instead of a reader, but even still a lot of her discussions resonated with me from a readerly perspective.

A very queer and very funny delight, this memoir about Michelle Tea's years long project of getting pregnant and having a kid which she started at the ripe age of 40! From inseminating at home with her drag queen friend's sperm to doing IVF to implant her partner's egg in her uterus, the memoir is super candid, casual, and reassuring. She reads the audiobook and adds a bunch of chutzpah to it that I really enjoyed.

Split Tooth | Tanya Tagaq
post image
Pickpick

A truly unique book that exists effortlessly in its own Inuit world. Split Tooth is very strange, haunting, and beautiful, moving seamlessly between realism and myth, if you can even separate them, which I'm not sure you can/should. It charts the story of an Inuit woman growing up in Nunavut in the 70s/80s. The audiobook is stunning, read in Taqag's hypnotic and melodious voice, interspersed with her Inuit throat singing. CW: sexual assault.

All This Could Be Different: A Novel | Sarah Thankam Mathews

One of the best books I've ever read: so viscerally real but at the same time so brilliantly crafted. The sentences frequently stunned me with their sharp insight, exquisite beauty. An intimate, generous, and honest portrait of Sneha, an aloof, emotionally cautious woman making her way in that post-college period in an American recession as an immigrant from India. Work, friendship, romance, food, sex, housing, all the millennial life stuff.

The Romance Recipe | Ruby Barrett
post image
Pickpick

This wasn't quite the romance for me, but I think overall it did what it set out to do very well. It's about a celebrity chef and her restaurant owner, both of whom are already pining for each other when the book begins. This romance set up doesn't interest me much. But the chef, Sophie, is a newly out bi woman at age 30 and the depiction of her later in life coming out and encountering biphobia, was excellent. Also steamy sapphic sex scenes!

Okay this might be an unforgivable mistake for an audiobook voice actor to mispronounce "poutine" when it's supposed to be a Montrealer saying it! The other character even remarks on how she pronounces it!! (The actor says "poutin" instead of "pouteen"). ????

JamieArc I‘m so curious to hear how she pronounces it! She doesn‘t pronounce it like putain does she? 😂😂 1mo
AlaMich I always wonder about that with audiobooks. Is nobody listening to how the narrator pronounces things, or do they just not want to tell the voice actors they‘re saying it wrong? 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @AlaMich yeah, don't they read the book beforehand and then do research to make sure any unusual words are pronounced correctly?? This is an American production, so I assume they don't know the actor was saying it wrong? 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @JamieArc yeah, Putin but with the emphasis on the othe syllable! 1mo
AlaMich Probably, although I‘m American and I know how it‘s pronounced. 😉 1mo

A searing portrait of a borderline unlikable character, Cass. On the precipice of big success as a queer feminist playwright in NYC, she has to flee across the country in the wake of a scandal. The book is about women and rage, ambition, making art, desire, jealousy, friendship (+ lack thereof). Also: bisexuality, queer friend/mentorship, self sabotage, internalized homophobia, failure, intimacy, theatre. Amazing characterization, amazing ending.

Nothing Will Save Your Life | Nancy Jo Cullen
post image
Pickpick

Excuse the ratty appearance, my baby has been playing with this poetry book! Many poems use traditional forms while a lot of content is focused on 21st century life, including climate change and social media. But aging, death, and nostalgia are prominent themes. Also: dogs, motherhood, domesticity, Catholicism, sex ("wicked boxes of delight"), parents, and fatphobia. Often sad but also sometimes funny and joyful, even occasionally bawdy.

An accessible and thought-provoking book that shares ace perspectives on feminist politics, disability, race, consent, relationships, and more. I thought the mix of Chen's personal story, those of other aces she interviewed, and her more academic writing on the topics worked really well. The observations that hit me the hardest were those about feminist attitudes to sex, consent and sex in relationships, and rape culture. Recommended!

I Capture the Castle | Dodie Smith

This classic would have resonated with me more if I'd read it closer to the protagonist Cassandra's age (17). But it was a wonderful reminder of how I thought and experienced life at that age, despite being set in 1930s England / written in the 40s. What an interesting cast, portrayed honestly but lovingly by Cassandra. I loved how the story played with a Pride and Prejudice setup and then turned it upside down. The ending truly surprised me!!

"If having sex were merely cool, this would have bothered me little. However, sex had also become feminist, and this I cared about. Through a subtle series of twists, like in a game of telephone, sex for liberal women has become more than a way to enjoy ourselves or even prove that we are desirable. Conspicuous consumption of sex has become a way to perform feminist politics."

?? so much interesting food for thought in this book!

The second Monk and Robot book is a spiritually nourishing very funny queer utopian novella about two increasingly close companions, a nonbinary monk and a sentient robot. This book is so thoughtful, kind, and curious. It's full of conversations and open-ended questions and abundance and comfort and joy. What do humans need, especially in a society where all their basic needs are met? How does one find their purpose in life? I want to live here!

Something about the writing in this series just doesn't do it for me. I tried the first book too and felt bored? I feel like I'm being told about the characters and story instead of being in it. It feels emotionally removed, journalistic almost? Not for me, but definitely for other people.

A surprisingly heartwarming (??) feminist revenge thriller about a woman serial killer who targets men who are abusers/rapists/etc. Scarlet moonlights as an English prof but her true passion is giving terrible men what they deserve. Interspersed is the story of shy awkward Carly, a first year student at the same uni in love with her roommate who was recently sexually assaulted. Extremely cathartic and satisfying to read. Bi representation galore!

Pretty Baby: A Memoir | Chris Belcher

Bailedbailed

I am not into the tone of this book. It feels like the author is trying to scandalize and titillate me with the sexual content. That is just not something I'm interested in. Belcher's writing is propulsive, readable, and she can set a scene. But for memoirs about queer coming of age and sex work, I prefer Amber Dawn and Melissa Febos. I'd be interested to read reviews by sex workers because it feels like it's written for a non-sex worker audience.

A soothing collection of poetry most often occupied with the natural world, but with a lot to say about humanity. It felt apt I left this book outside in my backyard and came back to find a bird had pooped on it. Limón reminds us to decentre ourselves, to revel in our own unimportance. She shows us there's a lot to learn from nature: how play is work, death is ordinary, there is wildness in everyone, desire is not something to rid yourself of.

An incredible collection of essays: personal, literary, analytical, and investigative. Her beautiful writing is fiercely feminist, queer, and dedicated to complexity. Febos tackles narratives girls/women are taught that prioritize the comfort, success, feelings, etc of men over even women's safety, let alone freedom or happiness. She discusses consent, voyeurism, slut shaming, beauty standards, mother/daughter relationships, sex work, and more.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK! There is a lot going on in Like Other Girls – effortlessly and deftly balanced, by the way – but at its core it's a story about a closeted butch lesbian teen struggling with and overcoming internalized misogyny. Also: lots of football, female friendship and solidarity, swoony romance, intergenerational queer mentorship, masculine of centre gender expression, anger management, and a whole lot of personal growth.

It seems unfair to say my only problem with this novella is that it's too short but it's true! That said, Cat Sebastian fits in a lot, including some lovely character development on the part of Alice. She begins the story a meek spinster who lets people bulldoze her to a woman getting what's owed her, stealing diamonds, and having middle of the night lesbian sex! As usual, it's delightful. That's the end of my Cat Sebastian streak, for now!

A truly incredible collection of poetry. Themes include queer love and desire; pop culture; immigration; racism and being othered; pets and plants; diaspora; myth and folklore; parenthood and childbirth. Intertextual in nature, the poems are delightfully and fiercely innovative in their form, style, and word play. (One is a crossword puzzle!) Her word choice is often uncanny, making mundane words strange and wonderful in their unexpected use.

I see you, adult men on Goodreads giving this book negative reviews because a) it's about a young woman and you just can't take any young woman seriously or it might erode your manhood (did it occur to you this book isn't written for you?)

or b) asserting your enjoyment despite yourself, joking ironically (you're not being sexist it's a joke ladies!) about how its femininity might rub off on you.
