17 posts | 14 read | 42 to read
Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster familythe wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: Let them see me!

I've never thought of Edgar Allan Poe as a teenager. I just assumed he came out as a wild looking 40 year old misunderstood pioneer author. I think this book struggled a bit in spots in terms of pacing and plot but overall still an enjoyable read from Winters.

Cat Winters last two books were very "the cover God loves me." lol Like the cover AND under dustjackets are designed. Edgar Allen Poe and a muse sounds awesome

Poe is hands down my favorite author, so any re imagining of his life is a complete draw for me. As someone who has spent a lot of time in Richmond, VA, the atmosphere portrayed in this book is spot on. From the locations to the people, it is well researched. This was such an original idea and is a creative take on Poe's inspirations and psyche.

I‘ve been looking forward to this. More YA Poe.

Did an event earlier this week with the author Cat Winters on her book about a teenage Poe and his muse, which was held at Richmond's Poe Musuem. Loved the book, and the cover is good, but I prefer it without the slipcover. #nakedbooks #Poe

Jee_HookedOnBookz I overheard a conversation at one of their stores that they do sell their prices as online as long as you're a bn member. I'm not sure if it applies to all stores coz I haven't tried that but that lady got her book as per the price online ☺️ 4y
bookish_wookish I was able to do that a few months ago but they said they were only doing that as a trial to see how it went. 🤷🏼‍♀️ @Jee_HookedOnBookz 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @bookish_wookish they should just continue with it, don't you think? It's so much more convenient and makes sense too but your shady move is too good! I'm gonna do it next time I'm there and I find a better deal online hahaha 4y
bookish_wookish absolutely! I think they should keep it going! @Jee_HookedOnBookz 4y
