Physical book: This is How it Always Is, by Laurie Frankel.
This is a story about a mtf trans child and her family’s efforts to support her while worrying about how the rest of the world may be less understanding. The parents in this story spend a while trying to ignore the obvious, until one day they notice their child getting smaller and smaller in each picture she draws of herself and her family. They realize that simply letting their child wear whatever she wants isn’t going to be enough when the rest of the world is going to judge her for it; what can they do to make her feel confident when she steps out the front door and has to deal with a world that’s far less accepting than her family?
This is June’s pick for my book club.
Audiobook: In a Dark, Dark Wood, by Ruth Ware.
Nora is a bit taken aback when she receives an invitation to her old friend’s hen night, ten years after losing contact. The story periodically flashes forward a bit, with Nora waking up injured, under guard at the hospital, and with a big, gaping hole in her memory. Interesting so far, with a bit of a The Girl on the Train vibe.
Kindle: Born A Crime, by Trevor Noah
I’ve been dying to read this for ages and finally made it to the top of the waiting list at my library. Born to a white father and a black mother at a time when interracial relationships were illegal in South Africa, Trevor was living proof of his parents’ crime, something to be kept hidden, and always at risk.
I’m really looking forward to getting into this one.
What have you recently finished reading?

Overall, I was not impressed with this one. Full review to come tomorrow.
What do you think you’ll read next?
My TBR pile at home is ridiculously out of control, so I really have no idea, but I have a couple of unread Margaret Atwood books laying around. I might move on to one of those next.
