It’s time for another reading blog, and I typically write those posts while I listen to a book, but today, I’m listening to music. I need some positive power, and music gives me that. Before I start talking about the books I read this week, I’m curious what kind of music are you into right now?
I read three 2022 releases, and they were Call Me Cassandra by Marcial Gala which was translated, and I’m glad I read it this week because I needed a reminder that I’m not the only one dealing with gender issues. I gave it five and a non-fiction I recommend for the way it touched me.
The other two were Spin Me Right Round by David Valdes and Icebreaker by A.L. Graziadei, which I liked, but they didn’t give me goosebumps, so I gave them four stars. I also read the memoir of Qian Julie Wang Beautiful Country, which, be prepared you might need tissues close by because it made me tear up. Reading Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow by Benjamin Dean gave me a different view of a family’s feelings when a member comes out.
We, humans, fear the unknown, and it was cool to see some characters fictional or otherwise overcome that fear. I think this is one thought I want to take away from this week. The unknown isn’t that scary if you are open to learning it.
