Women in Translation 2020

Welcome to WITMonth 2020!! This is that time of year when we remember and celebrate those women writing books not in our first language. You may remember from prior years that translation is terribly low in the US and into English, leaving plenty of opportunity out there for fabulous books that we just aren't getting...

I'll be reposting the recommendations on the days, but this is a head start for planning your reading. Also, don't for get that it's Women in Translation Month hosted by book blogger Meytal...

July Reviews

I decided a few weeks ago to change things up a bit and do reviews a little differently. Listed are the books I reviewed this month with links to find them. I've moved reviews to Instagram to see how that goes. Follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/feminismandyoga/?hl=en This should open up time and space here... Continue Reading →

Ember Queen by Laura Sebastian

As with the first two parts of this series, I love this finale! Sebastian is amazing and I love the world she built. Though life hasn't allowed much time for posting, I have been reveling in amazing worlds last month. I finished this series and then The Belles and the Firebird series (end of that...

The Belles and The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton

The Belles and The Everlasting Rose are the first two books in Clayton's The Belles series. I had read The Belles last year during my hiatus but never reviewed it. There is an untitled third book in the works according to Goodreads too. As it is, these two were originally written as a duology but... Continue Reading →

June International Days

Recommendations from readers would be much appreciated! Also, I recognize this is terribly late, but even with the lapse in punctuality, these books are still worth recommending. Despite...

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

I had a decent rotation going for my posts to make sure I covered all my interests for a while there, but now life has intervened. Nothing bad, just busy and hard to keep track and I made a plan to not let things get crazy so I'm letting it go. It's actually kinda funny... Continue Reading →

Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson

I first heard of Temple Grandin because of the 2010 movie of her life. It was amazing to watch the changes she made in the cattle industry captured within the movie. Don't get me wrong, the movie involves a lot more than her innovation when it tells her life story, but that part of it... Continue Reading →

Inspired by kids books

I loved reading bedtime stories to my son when he was really little. We fell off it for a long while when he was old enough to read on his own, though. As mentioned a few days ago, we recently started reading at the dinner table instead. It's had me thinking about some of his... Continue Reading →
