Today on Book Riot:
I love Mohsin Hamid’s work! And Lois Lowry’s!
As I mentioned in the article, I didn’t like Life of Pi.
Another very popular book I disliked from my early teens in the early 2000s was The Da Vinci Code. I’ve Tweeted this since 2018, but I’m just copying my opinions from Twitter to my blog:
CN genitals; ableism
What did I hate more? The ableism of The Da Vinci Code making a character with albinism seem creepy because of his disability? Or the TERFiest part of The Da Vinci Code, comparing a cathedral’s arches to the goddess’ vulva?”
I’m watching Broadchurch. I like David Tennant’s work a lot.
I liked The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman and am reading Ghosts in the Schoolyard by Eve L. Ewing, which is a great, non-fiction, academic book. Eve is really nice and an excellent poet and essayist too.
Last week, I wrote about the ableism of Elspeth Barker’s novel O Caledonia.
