Can I just say I am so incredibly glad that I finally have my love for reading back?!? I think I've talked on here before about how Covid and quarantine and lockdowns just killed my reading back in the spring of 2020. It has been so great to feel like me again, when it comes to my reading. So with that preamble, here's what I've read in May, thus far.
I don't know how this book came across my radar but I have to say, I didn't love it. I think it was meant to mimic a Jane Austen book and it kind of fell flat for me. I never got really invested in any of the characters and I found the story so choppy. If I rated books on Goodreads, I would give this 2.5 or maybe 3 stars. It just felt like it was missing...something.
I bought this book earlier this year and was so looking forward to reading it. I finally picked it up on my birthday and read it in one day. Cole is a journalist who lives in Toronto and it was so eye-opening to read about racism in Canada (although it shouldn't have been). Canada likes to whitewash our racism and Cole's book holds us to account. This should be required reading for every single white Canadian. And any non-Canadian who wants to know what our racist tendencies are.
