What an adventurous read! Dorothy wants to be rescued from the strange land she happens to be in accidentally and wishes to go back home, but before that, she goes on a series of thrilling events with her friends (Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Woodman) and her dog Toto. I absolutely loved reading this tale.

Centique This was my first Toni Morrison and I fell completely in love with this book. 😍 3w
Tanisha_A @Cinfhen I have read only one as of now, The Bluest Eye, and that should be read (strongly suggest it). But i have heard brilliant thoughts about Sula and Beloved. You could consider this one too (see above comment by @Centique). Is this for a Litsy bookclub read? I would love to buddy read Sula if so. 3w

My Antonia | Willa Sibert Cather
post image

There was a basic harmony between Ántonia and her mistress. They had strong, independent natures, both of them. They knew what they liked, and were not always trying to imitate other people. They loved children and animals and music, and rough play and digging in the earth. They liked to prepare rich, hearty food and to see people eat it; to make up soft white beds and to see youngsters asleep in them.👇🏽

📷: Bantam classic cover of My Ántonia

Tanisha_A They ridiculed conceited people and were quick to help unfortunate ones. Deep down in each of them there was a kind of hearty joviality, a relish of life, not over-delicate, but very invigorating. 1mo
Tanisha_A It's amazing how Cather draws up characters, just so distinct - loving, funny, disliked, complicated. Savouring the last of Prairie trilogy. 1mo

Earnest. Honest. Bare. Heartbreaking. Harrowing. Chaotic. Lyrical. Captivating. Statements crafted aesthetically. Story delivered with thought, care and grace – story of struggle and survival, of language, of the world in Vietnam and USA, of facing the truth, of being one's true self.

I had a beautiful time reading this.

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang
post image

Fun and fast paced. A romantic novel which takes a country girl from Vietnam to the US and makes her a stronger, confident person amidst all the matters of the heart. There is depth to the characters and the plot ends its journey smoothly. A total palate cleanser and has great potential for getting one out of a reading slump.

I could totally see a movie being made out of it.

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders

Pickpick

I loved loved loved this book. It is a work of fiction born out of historical truth, providing an immersive literary experience. Set in the times of Civil War, President Lincoln loses his young boy Willie, & it's his grief and pain which Saunders paints in a beautiful prose – emotional, lyrical, humorous (yes!) – with writing which flows like a tranquil creek. Very atmospheric and savoury.

Looking forward to reading short stories penned by him.

Purple Hibiscus: A Novel | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Pickpick

A disquieting and powerful read. Set in the military ruled Nigeria, Adichie weaves a gut punching story consisting characters enduring religious fanaticism, abused and loveless childhood, broken relationships, but also finding freedom, love, happiness, laughter elsewhere. Even though situations are usually upsetting through the course of the narrative, it's sprinkled with a sense of hope. Just so raw and captivating.

TheBookAddict Made me cry. One of my favorite authors. 💜🌺💜 4mo
sudi Great review 😊👍. I'm going to read this for the #authoramonth challenge. 4mo
Tanisha_A @TheBookAddict Same, i was angry, and so distressed. She is a gem of a writer, loved reading Americanah too. I want to read Half of a Yellow Sun next. 4mo

Tanisha_A @sudi Thanks Sud! I think you will appreciate this one. She is brilliant at evoking emotions. And to say that, this was her debut. 😳 4mo
TheBookAddict @Tanisha_A same! I found myself having to take a moment to regroup, because I just wanted to jump in the book and give him a piece of my mind and fists 😔. I also liked Americanah, it was my first Adichie book. I want to read that one too, but I haven‘t gotten to it yet...so many books. 😅 4mo
Tanisha_A @TheBookAddict Ugh! It makes me utterly depressed to think that such people could exist for real. 4mo
TheBookAddict @Tanisha_A right! 😔 4mo
BiblioLitten My favourite read this year.💜 4mo
Tanisha_A @BiblioLitten Just so good. ❤️ 4mo

Finished reading this sometime back, & i am so happy to have come across this bundle of satisfaction. All hail queen of fiction, Tartt!

Rich characterization, smooth & logical flow of events, brilliant descriptions/analysis of some of the famous works of art by old masters, emotionally gripping, thrilling, beautiful portrayal of relationships, philosophical elements through stories, loved reading it. Looking forward to get my hands on next DT.

Cathythoughts Great review! I loved Secret History, and did start this one & never got too far. Your review makes me want to go back ♥️👍🏻 4mo
charl08 Another fan of this one: completely absorbing. 4mo
CaroPi I also love it. Didn't feel all the pages. (It maybe also because I read it in my Kindle so it didn't look that big 😜) I hope the movie does justice 4mo

BekaReid Yes, I need to read more Donna Tartt. I've read and loved both this one and The Secret History. 4mo

Tanisha_A @charl08 That's the word, absorbing. 4mo
Tanisha_A @CaroPi I am excited and not excited about the movie. Like you said, hope it's just. 4mo
Tanisha_A @BekaReid This was my first. Looking forward to her other works. 4mo

Goodies from library. ☺️

sudi Oh, you're lucky to have a library. We had one library close by for many years, but it shut down 😞. Now the only remaining ones are far away and flood during rainy season. 5mo
Tanisha_A @sudi These are from my office library. I can understand, distance is a problem. 4mo
