So I came across the 2021 NetGalley and Edelweiss Reading Challenge and thought this would really help get through my shelves. Read on to see how to join the challenge.
The themes in the book are relatable as they were back 40 years ago when the story took place, to now. The overarching theme of the book that I took away was identity. Brit addresses the issues of colorism, Gender identity, and who exactly am I. All the main characters grapple with this existential problem.
Not until this year of 2020 did I understand what it meant to be a mood reader. I can say with certainty that I’m indeed a mood reader. My mood dictates how and what I read; even when I read.
Without a doubt LoveCraft Country is my favorite book, I’ve read this year. I read and listened to this book in the span of 3 days. Matt Ruff’s writing is sophisticated and naturally flows. There was a certain air to his writing that made the novel purposeful. Matt Ruff as a white male author does an extraordinary job writing Black characters.
