    A+ book haul!! I can't handle paperbacks – they're too easy to bend/show wear. But hey, that's why we have options. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that this was a book haul mixed with a few little reviews since you'd already read some of them. So fun to get a little of both! I absolutely adored The Flatshare. And I'm so excited that you finally get to read A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor! It's SO good. I read it last year and am now listening to it. The audio is also fantastic.

    I really loved What whites people can do next and we do this till they free us. They are very my thing I guess. Iโ€™ve had the flat share for a while on my shelf and have just never picked it up but maybe I should.

    My Sister The Serial Killer has been on my TBR for *ages*!
    Idk if you need any more book recs but "The Silence of the Girls" by Pat Barker is definitely worth checking out! It's basically a retelling of the Iliad from Briseis' perspective and talks a lot about the women and their lives that we never normally get to see.

    The Flat Share has been on my TBR for so long. This video is a definite reminder to read it asap.
    Also, a quick suggestion- have you considered diving into South-Asian literature? It'd be so interesting to hear your thoughts about a few of those. โค๏ธ

    I've heard amazing things about A Dowry of Blood, mostly from Monica Kim. What White People Can Do Next is excellent, I can't wait to pick up Don't Touch My Hair by Emma Dabiri next. Her writing is A+

    This was so fun! The End of Policing is a book I recently finished bc I'm curious about the abolition movement too

    A Dowry of Blood is so good! if im correct in my definitions its actually kinda both polyamory AND polygamy ๐Ÿ˜‰ when i first discovered it i felt like it was written for me, im bi, interested in poly stuff and i love the dracula story ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love book hauls! And especially loved that you chose to support a small booktuber and participate in her amazing readathon with such great reads! And I know you donโ€™t need to hear this from a stranger on the internet lol but i felt so proud when u admitted you didnโ€™t know why or how people wanted to โ€˜defundโ€™ the police so picked up a book and educated yourself – can everyone do this please! ๐Ÿ’œ

    I would love to see a video of your favs/recommended "work" books! Your recent videos have inspired me to create a book wishlist (its already 3 pages long ๐Ÿ˜…).

    Oooh definitely adding these to my TBR. Not the nanny one though, I like a satisfying ending to a thriller or I become stuck

    Really interested to hear what you think of โ€žMy Sister the Serial Killerโ€œ once you read it! I thought it was a fairly entertaining read but somehow I expected it to have feminist themes and then when I read it it seemed to me rather anti-feministโ€ฆ. Lots of the behaviour of the main characters were really hard for me to comprehend.

    Dowry of blood sounds really interesting and a new spin on the Dracula story line going to have to get me a copy of this one I think.

    If you want a fictional book that blends sci fi and discussion about climate change; I'd highly recommend the Ministry for the future by Kim Stanley Robinson. It's amazing and really opened my mind and eyes.

    I got really stuck on The house of COMMONS and the House of LORDS.. like can the UK get any more classist ??
    Clearly I donโ€™t live in the UK and I know very little about the political structures/systems but that naming really got me

    When it comes to poly relationships I enjoy the Anita Blake series but they are a bit much for some. The supernatural mixed with crime mixed with a whole lot of intimate interactions which all are a bit grafic, some might say even gory. The author is also in a poly relationship which is a reason it has become so important in the books I think.

    My Sister, the Serial Killer is so good! One of my favorite books I read last year

    mariame kaba is absolutely brilliant! she spoke at my (american) university for mlk day this year and hearing her was something i'll never forget. additional to police abolition she encouraged actions of solidarity w incarcerated people i.e. writing letters and sending books to incarcerated people, donating to bail funds etc.

    Nice to see you read something other than books about bodily fluids. Suggest you read "Klara and the Sun" by Kazuo Ishiguru. A wonderful thought-provoking and poignant book, It is about the human heart in the poetic sense and what makes each of us special and individual. It may be fiction but it is really damn good fiction. An impulse buy, I am a Russian literature buff, but very glad I read it.

    I recently read an absolutely incredible anthology of short stories and poems called Common Bonds, which was edited by Claudie Arseneault, in which every story centres around aromanticism and platonic connections. It spans such a range of genres and types of story-telling, and I adored it so much. Some stories explicitly talk about aromanticism (including incorporating it into folklore and story tropes like demon-hunting and werewolf packs, which was super cool) while others have characters who nebulously talk about not wanting relationships, and others just have stories where the relationship at the centre is between friends or siblings or queerplatonic lovers. Can't recommend it enough for people who are aspec and looking for stories about their experiences, or just for people who really want stories that don't focus on romance <3

    A book that has good polyamory rep in my opinion is The Fifth Season! It's not the main plot point, but the whole book is incredible and the romance really added to it!!

    Just out of curiosity, why do you avoid hardback books? Aren't those more durable?

    I've read My Sister The Serial Killer and I thought it was so fun!! It's a good pageturner. I'm not sure I'd call it a 'thriller' though, unless I'm massively misunderstanding them having not (I don't think) read one? I also enjoyed the Flatshare and appreciated its realistic depiction of intimate partner violence and critique of carceral justice amidst this lighthearted romcommy book? Also I listened on audiobook and being Irish it was so nice that they had an irish narrator for Leon given he was Irish (although it may have been unrealistic given he seems to have grown up in England?). I read some of Palestine +100 when I first got it when it came out, but then I hit a reading slump. I must go back and continue on with it! So I appreciate this reminder. Also A Beautifully Foolish Endeavour is great! I liked it even more than the first book.

    I haven't read Emma Dabiri's new book yet, but don't be fooled by it looking like a short read. "Don't Touch My Hair" was the same, but it took me a while to get through because she just packs so much in there. Great book though. A Dowry of Blood sounds very interesting.

    I just finished reading "My sister, the serial killer" yesterday! Really excited about your opinion on it!
