Monday Memories is a weekly feature hosted by Miss Print and the Book Bandit. Just take a photo of a book from your personal library (or a library book that’s significant to you, etc.) and talk about why it matters. Is it your first ever signed book? The first book you reviewed on your blog? Whatever it is, write it up in a Monday Memories post and share it. Just please link back if you decide to join!
This week for Monday Memories I’m talking about And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard.
I read And We Stay in January right after it published. I got a copy through Amazon Vine when I was taken by the cover and intrigued by the premise. When I saw that Elizabeth Wein also blurbed this book, I knew that this one would be a winner.
It did not disappoint. In the intervening months I have found myself thinking about this book often as I return again and again to the smart things Hubbard, through her characters, had to say about feminism and friendship in this story. The integration of poetry is also stunningly done.
This is a quiet book. Maybe even what could be called a slow burn. But it is also an exceedingly satisfying read whether you are a poetry lover or not.
