Hello folx! For September's club pick, we are reading "Forest of a Thousand Lanterns" by Julia C. Dao!
August we are reading Wilder Girls by Rory Power!
The book for July is "The First Rule of Punk" by Celia C. Pérez.
If borrowing: I think you want this one physical. I've heard it has drawings in it, but if you're reading on like, a phone or tablet (like a Fire) it's probably fine.
The other ones I've heard raved about, especially George, so I'll probably check them out too, if anyone wants to talk about them too.

@zephasaurus_hex It's 6 AM and there is NO NEW EPISODE to put into my ears!!!! Give me your lunch money or something!
I finished "Forest of a Thousand Lanterns" today. Which may have been a poor choice. Not for spoiler reasons.
More for, I wanted something to read in front of my happy light, and I was at like, the 66% mark, figured I'd read for 30 minutes, and at some point figured I was close to finishing the story.
A while later I finished. You're supposed to get 20-60 minutes of light, and I think I got at least 80. 😅
My head hurts...
#Kobo just sent me an email saying "It's your turn to marry for money". It's like they know I want to marry an American Man just to steal his house! Mwahahaha! 😈
I'm not getting into the "spoilers" aspect of it.
I don't like introductions in Classics and such because they seem to assume I've already read the thing, which seems to defeat the point of the very WORD "introduction".
On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the distilling it's doing in this assignment is better than I will get from reading Rousseau.
YAMGBookclub October: Nominations + Idea
Did we want to do a theme for October? (it's ok if we don't) I just thought since October happens to have a lot of holidays in the US this year it may be worth doing.
LGBT history month
Asexual Awareness week
Ntl coming out day
Intersex Awareness Day
Mental Illness Awareness Week, Etc
Indigenous People's Day (It was Native American Day in SD)
Either way hmu with recommendations, #YAMGBookClub
Ah, yes. "Brothers."
The only plausible explanation.

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns ~40%
It was a bit of a slow start to get me interested in the book (And I had 3 others I had to read besides the ones for class), but now that Xifeng is clearly stepping down an ominous path I'm interested.
According to Psychology today and???? (plz help, having trouble searching) Ambition is p bad in Eastern tradition, like the opposite path of virtue.
She seems to want to be saved from herself though... Later book?
Very very important news: for my library, at least, Mariko Tamaki's Harley Quinn graphic novel is available to borrow on Hoopla!
It is called "Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass" and looks completely amazing. Don't you want to see a Harley reimagined w/o her identity revolving around Joker? I sure do!
Also it's Tamaki and Poison Ivy's a major character, so I'm betting it's at least a LITTLE gay.
I fucking loved this episode, but Jesus. Kevin sure is a great friend for trying to "catfish" Chic. (I hope Betty has to play a nerd game with Kevin to make up for it) To make it true Catfishing of the modern era, Kevin should have worn an anime girl mask or something.
There's something really bugging me. Why didn't Betty just write anything down instead of GESTICULATING WILDLY.
I don't even care about the damn couple but this is painful to watch. #MonsterPulse
A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.
Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.
Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.
Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.
This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
