Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is: 5 of my most loved reads & five of my most disappointing or 1 star reads.
5 of my most loved reads
Amazing. I could relate to it in some sense. The audiobook is worth a listen. His voice is perfect for this. I want to read or listen to more books written by him.
Amazing art work and a story that makes you think.
I wish I would’ve thought of this. Love the idea.
Very well written. Realistic characters.
Another graphic novel with amazing art work. Loved the second volume more than the first.
5 of my most disappointing reads
Not what I expected from reading the synopsis. Depressing.
Basic feminism for every white, middle class, cis-gendered and able bodied woman.
Also, according to Solnit, a woman who wears a niqab/ hijab/ jilbab cannot be a feminist and should be treated like she doesn’t exist e.g. “I realized with astonishment that what I had taken for drapery or furniture was a fully veiled woman… Whatever all the arguments may be about veils and burkas, they make people literally disappear”.
Maybe someone (man or woman) should explain to her what literal means.
Thought it was a different kind of story of a unique situation for a character.
Most of it didn’t make sense.
Made me feel angry for the protagonist. So many things seemed unresolved.
Have you read any books I’ve mentioned here? If so, how’d you feel about them?
Thank you for reading and I hope you’re having a great day.
