How well can we really know our parents? In this modern murder mystery a daughter must untangle her Korean immigrant mother‘s secretive past in the hopes of getting answers to both her mother‘s death and her own life. It kept me guessing until the end.

Litsy has my December #tbr branching out to many books I would otherwise never know to connect with fellow readers here. I think it‘s perfect for this time of year. 😊

This slim 200 page novel packs in so much folklore, history, and action! It was recommended to me by one of my middle schoolers (she‘s normally more of a reluctant reader). Yemaya—a powerful mermaid orisha,Harriet Tubman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Frederick Douglas, indigenous Americans, enslaved people, and Quakers all have a moment to shine here. Celebrating heroes, compassion, and never giving up seem to be the themes. I loved it all!

Bellweather Rhapsody | Kate Racculia

I‘m so ready for this! @erinreads Your list looks awesome! I‘m planning on reading Bellweather Rhapsody before the New Year officially starts since a little birdie (. @monalyisha ) told me it connects to Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts. I‘m also planning on reading the memoir you suggested; I don‘t read enough nonfiction. Finally, I loved Migrations by McConaghy. So that‘s on my tbr to be sure! 💗

#NYWD22

Karisa P.s. @erinreads My orange tabby, Han Solo, says to tell Lucy hello. 😻 He‘s a love bucket too! Cats are the best. 2w
erinreads I too read Bellweather Rhapsody at the suggestion of @monalyisha before reading Tuesday Mooney! She was my match last time and Tuesday was on HER list for me. 😂 There is a fun little connection between the two. Hope you enjoy both and all of the ones you‘ve talked about getting to in the new year. They‘re all amazing (obviously!). 2w
erinreads Also, I have FOUR ginger cats running around, so Lucy (currently cuddled up with me as I type this!) and the others all say hi Han Solo! 😻 Now she says to start making my post for your list so you can see what I‘m most excited about diving into! 2w

I will remember the unique premise of this book for a long time and the interspersement of article clippings was clever. I feel like maybe if I was the type to love horror movies a bit more I would have appreciated this book a little better (like I was missing some inside jokes). The humor made me just sad for the characters. Is it unfair for me to be irked when a male writer writes a book with almost entirely abused/tortured female characters?

AFrostCauseReads I definitely get what you mean about the male author writing about abused women. But I have come to trust this author based off three other books I‘ve read of his that all feature female POV. He writes women as characters, with strengths and weaknesses and desires. And for this book he took his time discussing sexist issues in the genera, and I think he did it well. And it‘s pretty tough to write about final girls without featuring abused women (edited) 2w

Fledgling: A Novel | Octavia E. Butler

So freaking good! I‘m totally having character withdrawals after finishing this vampire book with a twist (or to or three). It took me a little to warm up to this world where the rules of vampires are very different. But soon I was fully invested in Shori, her symbionts, and the mystery she works to unravel to bring justice for her family.

#Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft thank you for this challenge and leading me to a great book!

Ruthiella I think Butler is amazing. The idea of a symbiotic relationship between humans and aliens is a recurring theme in her work. 2mo
rjsthumbelina It makes me sad that she never got to write the sequels 2mo
Karisa @rjsthumbelina @rjsthumbelina Her death is still a great loss! This book was just crying out for sequels. She said it was written as a fun write too (after the Parable series took so much research). The more Butler I read, the more I love her worldbuilding! 2mo

Book: Sci-fi graphic novel set in a dystopian world where humans are stuffed onboard a massive train. The outside is certain death. The inside is ranked by an unequal class system. What could go wrong? 🚈

Show: Couldn‘t find the movie, but TNT has a new adaptation that‘s well-cast and gives more of a backstory than the book. Definitely feels like the book was just a sketch that the show makes flesh. 😳😅

I really wanted to like this sci-fi novel. The premise is unique, but the writing felt stiff, repetitive. Also the author‘s romantic philosophizing just didn‘t ring true for me. I think it would‘ve worked better as a novella.

Dueling gentlemen magicians, powerful witches, familiars, fairies, disrupted social structures, race, and politics all combine in this ultimately fun novel. Cho (pictured above) is a great world builder who gives a new spin on this sub genre. Magic is not just for old white men in this fantasy‘s version of regency England.

Hey Litsy! My son is in 7th grade and loves Tokyo Ghoul and Demon Slayer. However, he‘s feeling like reading a novel because he burns through the mangas so fast. He needs a book for free reading time at school. Any suggestions?

Karisa Hey @Littlewolf1 I think you‘d mentioned you love Tokyo Ghoul too. Any ideas for him? 😅 4mo
wanderinglynn Based on the synopsis for both series, I‘d recommend urban fantasy/paranormal books, of which there are many. Maybe Jim Butcher‘s Dresden Files. 4mo

This book is rubbing me the wrong way. . . It just feels wrong that the main character is a scientist way in the future obsessed with her boyfriend. I mean I‘m 3 chapters in and 90% of it is about how much she loves him and how he surprised her with a proposal. It feels disingenuous.

Is sci-fi futuristic cozies a genre? This new book by Becky Chambers is so sweet with lovable characters and an interesting premise.

What if robots had long ago revolted and chose to live serenely in nature? What if a job of the future is offering small comforts like a free cup of tea and listening to strangers? Just a nice read cover to cover. I can‘t wait for the next book in the series!

Baz Grimm-Pitch, on the other hand, would never go to camp. His clothes are much too nice for that. Agatha Wellbelove would be in charge of the horses. Penelope Bunce would be the camp director.
