This week is flying by! I’ve been slowly reading “Hero At The Fall” (book three of the Rebel of the Sands trilogy) because I don’t want it to end. I’m telling you though, this final book is BRUTAL and I’m just as scared as I am excited for how this finale goes down. . BUT, today I really want to talk about “White Tears”. This beauty celebrated it’s paperback release on Tuesday as well as just recently being announced as a 2018 Pen America Literary Award finalist. That all comes on the tail of it being named the Best Book of 2017 by NPR, TIME, GQ, Slate, HuffPost, The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and Book Riot. (I’ll put the synopsis in the comments) . That being said, the GR reviews for this seem super polarized. Half the people are giving it 5 stars and the other half are giving it 1 or 2. And with it making so many best lists in 2017, you better believe I’m even more intrigued and curious to see which end of the rating scale I fall on. . I have been working on understanding cultural appropriation better in the last several months and I’m interested to see what I might learn about it through this read. Thank you to @vintageanchorbooks for sending me this copy to read and share, I’m certainly intrigued. . Has anyone read it? I’d love to hear some non spoilery thoughts. What are some books that you’ve really loved that seemed to leave readers divided? #whitetears #harikunzru #vinyl #mixtape #paperback
