Kim Ji Young, Born 1982: Finished reading this last night. Personally, I feel that if viewed as a social document rather than a fictional work, chances are this book may infuriate you in many ways, as it did me. I don't think I'll be able get over it anytime soon.
But, if seen solely as a work of fiction, you can certainly explore different narratives.

“ Azriel's fingers lingered at her nape, atop the first knob of her spine. Slowly, Elain pivoted into his touch. Until his palm lay flat against her neck.
It had never gone this far. They'd exchanged looks, the occasional brush of their fingers, but never this. Never blatant, unrestricted touching.
Wrong -- it was so wrong.
He didn't care. ”
A Court of Silver Flames, by Sarah J. Maas

Love is for those who know the griefs of time, for it goes hand in hand with loss. An eternity, so burdened, would be a torment. And yet—” He broke off, drew breath. “Yet what else to call it, this terror and this joy?

How NOT to write a Latinx character
If you’re writing a book with a latinx character, here are some stereotypes you should avoid.
TW: microaggressions, straight up r*cism
They’re the only character to be a drug dealer → of course, if you’re writing a book where all your characters are involved in drug dealing and general crimes, this won’t apply, but if you have, say, a group of 6 people and the latinx character is a drug dealer things are getting stereotyped.
They’re servants to white people (maids, etc)
They can’t speak English without an accent and people mock them;
You’re writing them being bilingual incorrectly (@prosebyanngie has great posts about bilingualism, check them out!)
They’re poor, uneducated etc.
They’re undocumented, clandestines, etc
They’re sexualized for their race → if you have a latinx person and you always describe them as lascive or sexual, this is not good. Try instead treating them like a person who likes to be intimate only with people they actually like.
They’re that character that “steals” the mc’s love interest
This is not a comprehensive guide but definitely this will help you shrug off some of these stereotypes!

'People who pop a painkiller at the smallest hint of a migraine, or who need anaesthetic cream to remove a mole, demand that women giving birth should gladly endure the pain, exhaustion, and mortal fear. As if that’s maternal love. This idea of “maternal love” is spreading like religious dogma. Accept Maternal Love as your Lord and Savior, for the Kingdom is near!' -Cho Nam-Joo, Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982

1K PAGES READATHON - AUGUST 2021
Hello bookish bees! 💖
Without further ado, I present to you The 1000 Pages Readathon - I-LOST-COUNT EDITION! 😅🤷♀️
These are fun and you guys seem to really enjoy them, so here we are 😂😌 It will take place for 10 days, between August 14th and 23rd - my actual birthday woooo 🥳
We’ll each start and end on our own time zones, so when midnight hits on August 14th, you’re free to start reading! 😊
The goal with this readathon is not to read a certain number of books, but to hit 1000 pages read in 10 days. It can be a single book, or 5, as long as you manage to read those 1k pages. Of course, you’re more than free to read more than that! 😊
We’ll be using the tag #1kpagesaug21, so make sure you tag whatever posts you might make with it so we can find each other and have fun together!Hope to see a lot of you participate!!
P.S. Totes cool to spread the word!
P.P.S. My ask box is open for any questions you might have, so feel free!
P.P.P.S. If you want to challenge yourself, use these prompts (the same book can cover multiple prompts):
