Bookmarks Made by Norma – Reading in the Country

November 22, 2020

Hello Friends! Just a quick post today to show off my favorite bookish things again and today I am featuring bookmarks made by Norma! Click Etsy shop to find their shop and use  SISTERS20 at the checkout for 20% off.

I just started reading Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart They has been a bit of buzz about this one after it winning the 2020 Booker Prize so I had to check out. It’s bold and unsettling story starting in 1981 and set in Glasgow. It’s a story of a family struggling with the ruthlessness of poverty, addiction while exploring what is a “normal boy” and the love children have for their damaged parents. Sounds a little bleak for the Christmas season but Readers gonna Read!!

Lindsay and I just started Take It Back by Kia Abdullah and loving it so far! A little about this one

The Victim: A sixteen-year-old girl with facial deformities, neglected by an alcoholic mother. Who accuses the boys of something unthinkable.

The Defendants: Four handsome teenage boys from hardworking immigrant families. All with corroborating stories.

Whose side would you take?

I am not very far in but I am intrigued and feeling a sense of dread for how this one is going to play out!!
