What are your answers to the questions? Did you enjoy the book you most recently finished? I would love to know!
I’m enjoying so many of my current reads right now! Forest of Souls is AMAZING, and I’m enjoying Unmarriageable so much that I’m interested in picking up Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen for the first time. I’m not much of a classic reader and it is very rare for me to want to pick up a Jane Austen so Unmarriageable is definitely doing wonders. I also started a buddy read of The Betrayals with Stephen @ Stephen Writes 🥳
The only current read I’m slightly hesitant about is The Wolf in the Whale. It is a story of a young, nonbinary Inuit shaman at 1000AD. The writing is magical and the story is interesting so far, but I just found out that the author isn’t nonbinary nor has any Inuit heritage. I’m a bit hesitant about whether she can provide a respectful portrayal of the Inuit and the experience of being nonbinary when she comes from a position of power (she’s white and cis if I have understood correctly). Let me know if you have any thoughts on this – I’m not sure if I can fully enjoy the book when I’m stressing about whether the representation is good or not.
Thank you so much for reading! Hope you have the best of Wednesdays filled with books and cake and relaxing moments ✨
