Happy sunday! i hope everyone is having a relaxing one ☺️ i went to the gym this morning and just got soaked in a downpour coming home, but i now i get to sit with my cup of tea and my book for the rest of the day 😌
.
seriously though, i think this whole ‘only using instagram for an hour a day’ thing has given me reading superpowers πŸ‘€ true i’ve been drawn to shorter reads this month, but yesterday i polished off changeling by matt wesolowski in a day, then started tracks by louise erdrich (pictured here) and by this time (12.30 on sunday) only have 40 pages left πŸ˜‚
.
this is why i used to love @25infive (where have you guys gone?! 😭) because readathons always make me realise how much i can read if i actually put my phone down - a s**t tonne!!
.
anyway, i’ve been very much enjoying tracks! it’s so beautifully written 😍 have you read any louise erdrich?

My endless thanks to seji @theartisangeek for introducing me to jacqueline woodson, who i incredibly had not come across before! but i’m officially hooked now. you all probably know that motherhood is one of my main jams when it comes to reading topics and red at the bone, centred around an unexpected teenage pregnancy, delivers a fantastic new aspect to the subject!
.
when iris falls pregnant by aubrey at 15, their worlds are changed but in very different ways. iris comes from money, while aubrey and his mother subsist on food stamps, so when the baby comes and ties their families together, they struggle to align both of their wants and needs. aubrey is content with his low level job in the mail room of a law firm, doting on his daughter, while iris is determined to achieve her dreams of going to college.
.
woodson’s prose is lyrical but sparse, providing a vivid snapshot of the characters’ lives. she favours short sentences, short paragraphs and short chapters, and yet at no point is it not enough. she deftly handles a myriad of weighty topics including motherhood, race, class, education, sexuality, identity, and even the right to die. although it’s a short book and obviously each topic isn’t given a hundred pages of exploration, it never feels rushed or forced, and woodson approaches them all sensitively.
.
nothing is more interesting to me than unconventional motherhood, and while we might not agree with the choices these characters make, we cannot deny them the right to make them. at 16, iris can’t know what she wants or what she will want in the future, and here we see how her decision plays out over the years, occasionally jumping back in time to see how the two families came to be where they are now.
.
after this vibrant and moving portrait of two families, i will be now hunting down more of woodson’s books! (although i hope she uses speech marks rather than italics for dialogues because for some reason that really threw me?? πŸ˜‚)
.
4.5/5⭐️

#ad | i'm wrapping up the weekend with a thriller recommendation for you guys! now available from #amazonpublishing, quantum is the first book in a new series by the international bestselling author, @1pcornwell. this pulse-pounding thriller centers around captain chase -- female nasa pilot, quantum physicist, and cybercrime investigator. i love books that feature badass heroines in roles that were once traditionally relegated to men, so it's safe to say i'm very intrigued to read this! you guys can find out more about the book + purchase a copy via the following link (i'll also have it on my stories for those of you who prefer a swipe-up): amazon.com/quantum_3 ✨

be sure to follow @amazonpublishing here on ig to stay up to date with their latest releases like this one :)
