My June Pride Reading



My super-belated June reading is introduced to you by Furiosa! All the books I chose for June had LGBTQ characters. This time year I tried to feature more countries. (You can also check my Pride readings from 2014, 2015 and 2016.)

The reviews contain some spoilers, though I try not to spoil plot twists too much (with the exception of the book that angered me).

Books:
  • Meredith Russo “If I Was Your Girl” [USA]
  • Chinelo Okparanta “Under the Udala Trees” [Nigeria, USA]
  • Tittamari Marttinen “Ikioma perheeni” [Finland]
  • Julia Ember “The Seafarer's Kiss” [USA, UK]
  • Salla Simukka “Musta kuin eebenpuu” (Lumikki Andersson #3) [Finland]

What can be better than spicy food when you have a cold? =D
A raita spice mix, made in Pakistan.

And Namaskaar takeaway: palak paneer and chana masala. ^^

Guttation [Daily Photo #651]



When I bought a Monstera last year I knew that they sometimes drip water from their leaves. And it finally happened yesterday for the first time! =D Small joys in life. This process has a fancy scientific name – guttation, and it's perfectly normal. (You can read more about guttation here and here).
