It's #nonfictionnovember ? I love non-fiction works, and this one is wonderful so far.
Dis-Orienting Planets is pubbed by UP of Mississippi and "amplifies critical issues surrounding the racial and ethnic dimensions of science fiction. This edited volume explores depictions of Asia and Asians in science fiction literature, film, and fandom with particular regard to China, Japan, India, and Korea." (upress)
Sooooo, remember this one? How bout another go? 😊📚 All info on Facebook and the Slack group.
Been reading for over an hour, and 25% through my first book. It's creepy and atmospheric, definitely enjoying it so far!
How are you all doing? Happy readathoning!📚🙌

This is fucking brilliant! Also, I listened to the audiobook version read by Gay, highly recommended. Want to go back to Sara Ahmed and her use of 'wilfulness' and 'unruly' now, to think through Hunger 💜📚👌
I had the grandest time reading this one! Steampunk Jumanji, Hijabi Rep, friendship, exciting adventures and glorious food, this book has it all 💜📚
This is book one in my quest to read MG adventure stories this summer and I'm off to a great start. Delved into the city of Paheli from my pile of quilts in the garden with obligatory Chai and felt 10 again🙌👌

My first book for #readathon is wonderful! Love Xiao Xiao.

"Enter the world of Xiao Xiao, daughter of an imperial courtesan, and a fantastical historical Qing China, with dragons and magic and traditions. What happens when her mother adopts a baby girl found in a rice field? What does - can - the green pearl do?"
Definitely recommend this collection of horror stories, excellent Southern gothic! Should also work for those who prefer their horror less gory.

Loving my Kindle library at the moment. Hopefully I'll manage some actual reading once I can stop staring at all the PRETTY!😂😍🙈
Starting something of a study group this year. We'll be reading and discussing mostly academic non-fiction. Anyone interested, details are on the blog:
