- Heaven's Official Blessing by Mò Xiāng Tóng Xiù (heed content warnings!)


@laughwhilecrying I'm halfway through Manhunt by Gretchen Felker-Martin.

It's very trans, very deeply upsetting, very deeply gruesome and completely bittersweet. Every word I read from it feels deeply in love with women, but at the same time scornful of humans. I picked it up because I saw it being review bombed by TERFs and fell in love with it.

I strongly recommend heeding content warnings, it's put me in proper upset moods - not at the book, but at the events and at people in the book.
