sputteringwords  asked:

Have you ever read The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian? If so, how did you feel about it?

Nope! Haven’t even heard of it.

My Goodreads friends seem to love it, but…it’s a contemporary. I’m not into that. At all. I don’t doubt that it’s an interesting discussion of race, based on the blurb, but I tend to read books for my entertainment (which includes this blog).

I mean, I might give it a try at some point, but it’d take some heavy campaigning from friends.

anonymous asked:

What are some of your favorite books? I'm looking to do some good reading this summer. You're one of my fav writers so I just your judgement.

Sorry for replying so late, my alerts on mobile are p much nonexistent. I’m always happy about book recs, though. 

American Gods by Neil Gaiman is def a fave. 

Anything from Jamaica Kincaid, but esp At the Bottom of the River and Lucy

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld. That damn book. Really all I can say. 

Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier. So much vivid imagery and detail, god bless.

I was rec’d The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, so I’m passing it along, because it’s def worth a read. 

There’s a few more, but those are the ones I can think of, off the top of my head. I’m still working my way through bell hooks’ All About Love, but I like it so far.
