September Book Reviews:

  • The Lady Maid’s Bell by Edith Wharton (2/5): I really liked the style and language of this short story, but the plot was so ambiguous ie the ghost and the state of the relationship between the Lady/her husband/the neighbour. I feel like I should like Wharton ghost stories, but this one wasn’t so great. Edit: I just read on she was anti-Semitic? So, nevermind about that.
  • White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi (4/5): This house is bigger than you know! Haunted house books are really cool. I guess they’re also a haunted family. It’s about a girl who has pica, her twin brother, her love, and the house that wants to keep her forever. The house’s narratives are especially freaky. 
  • Tastes of Paradise by Wolfgang Schivelbusch** (3/5): I only read a few chapters as research for mah stories. I think I’ll denote my research books with a ** because they’re not really reviews, it will just be how much I found them helpful. This one was semi-good, but it wasn’t really what I was looking for. It is from a European and later 19th C standpoint (on intoxicants), and I need earlier and from an Asian viewpoint. I will keep looking. 
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (3/5): Good book, I recommend. It’s very popular but if you don’t know it’s about a boy who follows his grandfather’s stories about children with superpowers to Wales after the grandfather is killed. I liked the main character, he’s like a tamer and more honest Holden Caulfield. I want to read the next one.

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x

3% of Canada’s population is Indigenous women, but 60% of Canada’s missing persons list are also Indigenous women.
