Birth of the Butterfly - Mimi Milan

*bookish meme created by Moonlight Reader

 

Incoming:

+1. Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America by Nefertiti Austin - I have had this on my wish-list for awhile. I first heard of this book from the For Real podcast (from the Book Riot podcast family). It was a Kindle Daily Deal and I didn't think twice before hitting the one-click button. 

 

Outgoing:

-1. Once Upon a Wedding by Various Authors - DNF the first story, skipped to the two stories I bought the anthology for, and DNS the rest. I don't regret the 99 cents I paid for it because the two stories were worth it.

 

-2. Birth of the Butterfly by Mimi Milan - and with this book read, I finished all the Mimi Milan works on my TBR!

 

Needle hasn't moved much but there is progress being made I promise. I might the weekends no-Internet days to catch up.

How not to be a parent: a guide
Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me - Adrienne Brodeur

I hated Malabar the whole book. And for a while I hated her daughter too. But then I had to remind myself she was just a child and was pretty much brainwashed into all this drama. My own mother was like this. She would rope me into schemes to torment my stepdad's ex and think it was perfectly fine to include a 12-year-old in adult problems. That is why I hate Malabar so so much. She never learns anything. She keeps being selfish. And all she fucking cares about his her boyfriend and her stupid necklace. It was of some comfort that her daughter finally broke the cycle, but for a while I felt like she was just continuing the cycle. Some people just shouldn't be parents. What an exhausting read.

Little A-holes Everywhere
Little Fires Everywhere - Celeste Ng

Okay, so I'm "medicated" right now and hormonal as Hell. This should be fun.

 

Pros: well paced and in a unique town

 

Cons: I. Hate. Everyone. In. This. Book.

 

Every character was a cookie cutter walking stereotype. And the plot was so damn obvious I had it figured out about a quarter of the way thru. The only character I felt really bad for was the baby. My god. Insufferable petty white-people bullshit. And I'm white. I felt second-hand shame for these people. What was supposed to be political statements came off as just plain racist because of the blatant cliche of it all. 

 

But I had to finish this shit because I wanted to see how many things I had guessed right. The tally? All of them. Lord help me.
