Reading progress update: I've read 51 out of 335 pages.
The Leavers: A Novel - Lisa Ko

There is something terribly racist about adopting a Chinese child who is 12, speaks fluent Chinese and knows no other life; and changing their name to something so white it might as well be called Wonder Bread, scolding them for ever speaking Chinese and speaking about "minorities" to them as if the child isn't one. Then when said child says "um... I'm a minority", they correct the kid with "we raised you better than the others". 

 

I hate people.

American War - Omar El Akkad

Angsty teen + war trauma = even worse angsty teen

 

Sarat isn't exactly a likeable person, but like Katniss, it's understandable.

American War - Omar El Akkad

This book seems more like ghosts of Christmas Future than fiction. Frightening.

 

Anyway, this book marks my halfway mark through my Book of the Month catchup. I think I'm making good progress.

 

 

I've had a low grade fever all week, so I am under the care of Nurse Fluffers. If I'm in my chair, you can bet money she's in my lap. If I'm in bed, you can guess she's curled against my hip. Good thing she's a tiny little girl. 

 

Bryan was given a rental truck. A 2017 Dodge Ram 4x4 that even has remote start. It's so nice it's depressing is to know we will have to hand it back over in a few days. But I got to drive it. Talk about nice. It's so tall I had to literally lift my bad leg into it because it couldn't reach that high. 

 

Think positive thoughts. My son tests for his blue belt in the morning. :)

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI - David Grann

Oh Hell no. Tell me I can't handle my own money and I need a manager because I'm not white. Let me give you my middle finger. God, I'm glad I was born in the 80s.

Native American culture is something I have always loved but never known a lot about. I was always told I was heavily Native American on my mother's side but then everyone backtracked and said they never told us that. My husband is from Oklahoma and I have been told he is part Native. I hate how an entire culture and race of people was damn near eradicated because they were considered less than the white man. This sort of mind set makes me sick.
