I finally finished my first train read! After the first few lines, my practical reasons gave way to two: reveling in more and more of Sandra Cisneros’ lush writing and giving the women in this book the center stage to share, love, and rage at the world. I'm so glad that I started this journey with Woman Hollering Creek.
This is one of my most anticipated reads for 2021, and now that I've read it, I can definitely say that all my tears over getting rejected for an ARC on Netgalley are definitely worth it.
