Hi Divers,

This is where we will discuss Dumplin' by Julie Murphy after reading it. SPOILERS are allowed here which means read this thread at your own risk. You can post the links of your reviews here too.

---Watch out for our reading sprints on twitter @DiverseDivers every Wed/Fri/Sat/Sun nights at 8 p.m onwards.

--We'll also have a movie night for this book since the adaptation is on Netflix but we still don't know when. What date works with you all. Comment please.

Hi everyone! Have you started the book yet? I'm currently on Chapter 9 and I truly enjoy Willowdean & Bo cute relationship! I haven't watched the movie, but I believe the meteor shower scene will be amazing!


thelibraryofalexandra (thelibraryofalexandraa) | 10 comments Hi guys!!! Okay, so I’m really loving the way Murphy writes - which I think I have said before haha but is anyone else finding the character Ellen to be super annoying? Is it just me? I don’t know, something about her and how she treats Willowdean kind of frustrates me...I can’t put my finger on it.

And I loved that meteor scene too! I really hope that’s in the movie - it made me breathless but I wish Bo would just talk haha. But I’m kind of enjoying the fact that the romance element at the moment is in the background? And it’s focusing instead on Willowdean and her journey to basically being a queen 😜

I kinda get what you say about Ellen Allie and I think I'll point it out clearly as I read more... hehe.

HONESTLY ME TOO! She's being so oblivious when Will confronted her to not join the pageant. How can one be so blind?!
