Starting this!

Happy world book day!

When I was living in the UK, we had World Book Night which is the first Thursday in March (they moved the date because it conflicts with school holidays).

You used to apply to give away the selected books. You‘d find people who don‘t read often or at all and give them a book (provided to you for free). I think now bookstores and libraries give them away.

It was great! I wish we had something similar here.

Ruthiella They did do it for at least one year in the US because I snagged a copy of Patty Smith‘s “Just Kids” from it. This would have been in maybe 2014 or so? But it was ultimately discontinued I guess. 7h
Kitta @Ruthiella Oh cool, that‘s before I moved to the US so I guess I missed it. I remember when that was a choice! I‘m sad they don‘t do the free books here anymore. But I guess I‘m not their target market - they‘re trying to get more people to read and I already do. It was a great way to meet people as a giver of the books. One year I gave out like 50 copies of (edited) 7m
Kitta @Ruthiella which was weird because I read it and didn‘t like it, but I see the appeal for others lol. I didn‘t get to choose which book I was giving out. But I was happy to give them to those interested in it. Maybe it‘s just me but everyone else seems to love it 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 6m

Yay voting day for #CampLitsy24

My choices:

- A Sweet Sting of Salt by Rose Sutherland
- How to Knit a Human by Anna Jacobson
- Clear by Carys Davies
- I Cheerfully Refuse by Leif Enger
- Knife by Salman Rushdie
- Extinction by Daniel Preston

It was so hard to choose!

Getting excited for camp now and to see what the final books are! Thanks so much to the organizers @Megabooks @squirrelbrain @BarbaraBB

BarbaraJean So quick! I will need time to obsess over researching all the titles! 😆 Still, I‘m sure I Cheerfully Refuse will be one of my picks—and probably Clear as well! 3d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow, I loved this. On the edge on my seat and finished it in two days.

It‘s about a newly graduated Black nurse in Alabama working at a family planning clinic in 1973, shortly after the uncovering of the Tuskegee syphilis experiments. She fiercely fights for her patients, including a pair of young girls, ages 11 and 13. This novel jumps through time between 1973 and 2016 where she reflects on their case.

Highly recommended.

I‘ve really been focusing on lgbtq books this year and succeeded in readying a lot so far, although this includes novellas, short stories, and poetry so they aren‘t all big chunksters.

Going for a full card by the end of the year.

An interesting sapphic/queer dystopian science fiction gender swapped Sherlock Holmes and Watson retelling, set on Jupiter.

Mossa‘s investigation starts after a man disappears from one of the less often visited platforms they live on. Potential suicide? Or is there something more going on?

Here‘s my nominations for this year‘s #CampLitsy!

Excited to be a camper again and interested in what we will be reading!!

Went for a nonfiction as the first one, it‘s about a woman with psychosis and sounds fascinating. I doubt it‘ll be for everyone (I love a mental health memoir but they are really tough to read sometimes) but I‘ll just read it anyway if it doesn‘t get picked.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cute story about finding yourself and your gender presentation.

Dawn discovers a love letter written between two women dating from the 1950s in a book she‘s rebinding and follows the mystery of who they are and what happened to them. What enfolds ends up mirroring her life in unexpected ways.

Predictable, but a good story and what I needed for the moment.

I had such high hopes for this, but really struggled with it. In part because of the language. (I had to look up several words I didn‘t know in the dictionary, and English is my first language!) I found it hard to focus, it was so dense.

Very damning of Canada in terms of the treatment of indigenous peoples and an interesting perspective on NDN queer life, I‘m glad I read it but wouldn‘t recommend it.

Great book of poetry. They cover hard things like trauma, homophobia, transphobia, colonialism and family dynamics. Lots of trigger warnings.

My favourite poem was the first one, about sea glass and being shaped into something soft, instead of sharp with jagged edges that cut. It‘s about trauma and the face we present in order to be accepted.

It‘ll stay with me.

My 1st book for the #transrightsreadathon and I thought it was great! I very much want to read his memoir now.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

JVN discusses queer life in a series of personal essays complete with research and data to back up his opinions (love a good reference). Covering grief, public perception and imposter syndrome, as well as his HIV+ status and the HIV safety net, among other things - this was a great quick read.

Starting this for the #transrightsreadathon. I saw him speak last year and he signed my copy!

JVN is famous for doing hair & makeovers on Queer Eye but is also known for being outspoken about being #nonbinary (he/they/she pronouns) and for living publicly with #HIV. He was well spoken and I hope the essays in the book are interesting!

He‘s also written a memoir: “Over the Top: A Raw Journey to Self-Love”

Interesting debut by a trans author!

Centred on an intense friendship in a New York City high school that begins on 9/11, this novel kinda slightly missed the mark for me.

I was interested in the fate of the characters but the chapters using AIM chat and livejournal blog posts were off putting to me.

Something about Nell and Fays blog really made me uncomfortable? I don‘t know how to articulate it.

“What‘s the oldest book you‘ve read by publication date?” ~ @BookmarkTavern

I had to look this one up on my trusty goodreads stats page and the oldest book I‘ve read written in English is A Midsummer Nights Dream by Shakespeare.

I‘ve also read Tao Te Ching which was published in 401 but I read a 1997 translation so that doesn‘t count.

Some aspects really resonated with me while others did not. I don‘t cry easily and really struggle to allow myself to feel emotions. Her depression and utter heartbreak is relatable, but I didn‘t see myself in this.

I listened to this as a audiobook, narrated by the author. The version I had from #BOTM had her reading out the numbers of each chapter and this bothered me because there‘s so many chapters and it took me out of the story a bit.

Trigger warnings for rape and eating disorders

I‘ve had this on the TBR for years because I knew there was a description of rape, and as a survivor myself, I wasn‘t in a place where I could read it.

I‘m glad I did.

Our stories are similar. We both suffered sexual assault and gained weight as a defence mechanism. We‘re queer. We both hunger for more. More food, more love, more acceptance.

I want to tell my own story one day. #botm

Full of magical realism, this story of slavery in the southern USA hits pretty hard. I love Jesmyn Ward (Definitely recommend Salvage the Bones!) but there was a bit too much about spirits for me and the subject is very heavy.

Loved this story intertwining multiple generations of a family across their lives in the Caribbean, the UK and the USA.

A book about how family recipes can link us, about family history and how it defines us, and about love.

I really liked the history of the ingredients and recipes, the influence of multiple cultures and countries coming together, and the ocean science scattered throughout.

Fantastic first novel!

Devastating and powerful mis of prose and poetry. Love, loss, longing for what could have been.
