I completely understand all the hype surrounding this book. It's gorgeous! It's a novel written as a letter by Little Dog to his illiterate mother. He discusses the abuse he experienced at her hand, the traumas she and her mother faced in Vietnam during the war, his queerness, his first love, addiction and the complex bonds of family. The prose in this book is so rich and lovely. #queerbooks

CaroPi Is in my TBR and hopefully I will read it soon.... 4d

This translated novel is such a beautiful love story between Mari and Jona that apparently has resonance with Tove Jansson and her longtime partner Tuulikki. It is written in such a stark, spare lovely way. I thoroughly enjoyed it! #queerbooks

Revisiting this old gem. It's so different reflecting on it now versus when I first read it in high school.

marleed I absorbed every version of THT so when I noticed the discs at my library with Claire Daines narrating - I had to go there. The Homeland vibes are so appropriate. I hadn‘t listened to a book on CD in years so it was great to slow it down to one cd through my surround sound a day! 1w

This was a gorgeous read! A queer trans woman is grieving the death of her best friend and unrequited love. She compiles an encyclopedia of the characters of her friend's favourite TV show to process her grief. Each entry weaves reflections on her friend into descriptions of the characters. Hazel Jane Plante created a complex fictional television show just to write this book! So smart, so tender, so nerdy. #transbooks #queerbooks

Lindy Hey! I must read this! This must be the Hazel that Onjana writes about in 2w

The Tiger Flu | Larissa Lai
post image
Pickpick

I read this book aloud to my partner over the last many months. It was so weird and wonderful I am almost at a loss of what to say. A post-apocalyptic dystopian tale - rebellious back-to-the-land clones who regenerate themselves meet flu ridden urban apocalypse survivors and hijinks ensue. Women turn into fish is elevators. People have catsuits that are somehow alive. I don't know what else to say. It's brilliant if you like weird, smart writing.

swynn I agree, this is brilliant. I read it last year (apparently during a time I was neglecting Litsy), and I plan to read more Larissa Lai in 2020! 2w

Akin | Emma Donoghue

I have devoured everything Emma Donoghue has ever written. This offering felt a little clumsier in places than some of her other books but I still enjoyed it on the whole. A seventy-nine year old man brings an eleven year old nephew he has just met to Nice for a week and hijinks ensue. It's a tale about family connections, WWII intrigue and human relationships.

Tamra I have loved her work too, but I‘ve started the audio version of Akin 2x and it just didn‘t hook me. 😢 2w

My nieces and I really enjoyed Dragon Pearl. We've been reading it as our book club book for the past while. It blends Korean folklore with science fiction, fantasy and space travel. There is a non binary character and shapeshifters which both challenge traditional gender expectations. We can't wait for the second book to come out! #nonbinaryboks

LibrarianRyan the Rick Riordian imprint has done such a fantastic job of choosing books. I last read Sal and Gabby break the universe and I'm now on Tristan Strong. This is on my TBR but each one has been excellent. 1mo
Bibliogeekery @LibrarianRyan thanks for sharing those titles. I'm going to check them out! 1mo

This is such a sweet and beautifully illustrated memoir. Maia Kobabe takes us through eir journey of understanding eir non binary asexual identity. This book does such a careful and clear job of explaining what gender queer and asexual means to this author. I will definitely be using this book in therapy with my non binary and/or asexual clients.#queerbooks #nonbinarybooks #asexualbooks

My niece told me to read this and so I did. It is a cute graphic novel that delves into the lives of a bunch of people playing in a soccer league. There are diverse characters - including trans and queer kids - and lovely themes of friendship. I would have read a separate book on each kid - it felt like it jumped around a bit more than I would have liked. I did quite enjoy it! #middlereaders #queerbooks #transbooks

Nute I love when we get entertainment recommendations from the younger people in our lives. My niece recommends books on occasion and my nephew enjoys advising me on keeping current with music!😃 2mo

This tiny book was such a beautiful read. Richard Wagamese wrote such poignant and succinct meditations on life, on pain and on belonging. I felt a sadness reading this knowing he is gone but was also comforted by his own words on grief.

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!

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.
