Diverse or Nah | Conflicts with Identities and Culture in Firekeeper’s Daughter

Diverse or Nah | Conflicts with Identities and Culture in Firekeeper’s Daughter

Hello mersquad and other friends.

I’ve been feeling like I wanted to talk more about what I’ve read so far in Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley, most especially some of the commentary on a character’s connection – or lack thereof – to their Indigenous heritage. Being someone who is in a very similar situation, and like this character, being dismissed and ostracized for it, it hit a spot in my heart.

If you haven’t read this yet, or like me you haven’t finished it yet, don’t worry. Nothing of what I’m typing is considered a spoiler, and it takes place within the first few chapters of the novel. However, if you don’t want to be spoiled by anything in the book whatsoever, this is where you should stop reading. No hard feelings if that’s the case! I totally understand.

For anyone that does end up reading the rest of my post, thank you so much and I appreciate your support.

#FaeFriday was created to help fill the hole in Kristy’s life after #FridayFavorites was discontinued. The idea behind this weekly blog prompt is that each Friday will have a bit of magic sparkled on it with a bookish prompt inspired by the Fair Folk! #FaeFriday is the creation of Kristy from Caffeinated Fae! This blog tag would not have been possible without the help & encouragement from Leah at www.leahs-books.com!

Thursday Quotables | The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Hello mersquad! I’ve been gone for a very long time, due to a lot of familial and personal health issues. I have mentioned some of what has happened in previous posts, and I did talk a little bit about my personal health issues that I’ve been dealing with for the past few months. So far, I am doing better than before, but I’m still taking it one day at a time. I’ve been looking for some new memes to participate in, especially for Thursdays since I never seemed to have anything consistent for that day, and I was lucky enough to have this meme recommended to me! I’m excited to share my first Thursday Quotables post with you, and I hope to have a lot of fun with these posts in the future.

Welcome to Thursday Quotables! This feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines will be, and you’re invited to join in! Hosted by Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies.
