What a grest book! It was heartbreaking and made me so so thankful for being able to grow up and live in a safe country with basic human (female) rights 🙏🏼 the story follows two woman through their hardships, forced marriages, brutality, loss of rights and wars. 5/5⭐️

Gissy I thought the same when I read this book. So much to do though. Heartbreaking novel 💔 9h

It‘s the first of December already😱 insane how this year is almost over. According to my list of unread physical books I‘ve read… 4 books this year 😂😂 maybe next year I‘ll be better at not adding to the pile in the same pace I‘m reading- but before my bookbuying ban I HAD to get this one- look at the pretty cover😍 I hope the story is as lovely!

I mean I HAD to buy the book- my name is on it? It‘s also supposed to be a modern feministic retelling of 1984, so I was extremely intrigued!

CSeydel Oh interesting. Julia was such a strange character in 1984; I never felt I really got a handle on what she was about. I‘d be curious how this retelling frames her! 4mo
squirrelbrain I think you‘ll like it. And, yes, probably a good idea to re-read 1984 first, particularly if it‘s a while since you read it. 4mo

Kirby helped me to finish this book in indeed one sitting. I didn‘t really expect much but it was reaaaally good! It might be small but it definitely holds a lot. It‘s touching and thought-provoking! It plays around christmas and is in fact a great christmas story about altruism and grace of charity. I also did not know about the Magdalen laundries.

Finally finished this book I started months ago😅 The story is really interesting- but at times I wished for more! There are many snippet‘s of people‘s lives and I was invested in so many and was hoping to learn more about each of the characters, but we never dove deeper into one of their stories. They were mentioned and entangled in other stories but I wanted more! I do recommend it nonetheless! 4/5 ⭐️ (Kirby is excited about it too😂)

This book. Well. I usually never DNF anything but this book really was not for me at all. I read 70ish pages and it felt soooo long already. There is no real story, just random weird snippets. Don‘t get me wrong- I LOVE weird random snippets. But this felt so pointless, boring and pretentious. So, I‘ve decided to give up. I have another Robbins book at home and hope that that one will be better.

This book actually disappointed me. I had high high hopes but I just couldn‘t connect with it. It reminded me maybe a bit too much of Murata‘s Earthlings, which I‘ve read recently, maybe that‘s why. I was hoping for a new favorite book but it ended up being 3/5 ⭐️at best.

Starting a slow saturday back in fairyland with an all grown up Gertrude 💚 I was afraid it might not be as good as the first four volumes as those had a pretty decent ending and I thought it would not be continued, but it was once more a fun (and violent) read 4/5⭐️
