Hello and welcome to our February Book Avengers post!  Today we are featuring The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.  As you know we are at a crossroads in America with the amount protests, election questions, etc.  Now I personally cannot discuss candidates or say anything that is for or against someone due to my IRL work but I can discuss books!  What better way to keep our nation’s current turmoil fresh in both my mind and others by reading books that show the strength of persons when they are limited in their rights?  Keep reading to find out what we thought of The Handmaid’s Tale and what we selected to pick from for March!

handmaid

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…

#YADiversityBookClub: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

August’s pick:

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.  

I’m luck enough to host Ms Yoon on Gone Pecan today.  Please welcome her and see what she has to say about her book.
