I was at this delightful evening tonight! 😍📚
Listening to this on audio, fabulous by the way, and I hear what is supposed to be a New Orleans accent. Why do movies, tv shows, and audiobooks depict people from New Orleans and even Louisiana in general as having a heavy southern accent and sounding like a Georgia bell? We don‘t! It irritates me to no end. Do your research!
It is suddenly freezing in Toronto with a lot of snow, so I couldn‘t have come across this passage at a more perfect time.
“The weather. It‘s like a poem. Where each word is more than one thing at once and everything‘s a metaphor. The meaning condensed into rhythm and sound and the spaces between sentences. It‘s all intense and sharp like the cold and the wind.”
Here's a free download for Starless Sea. Hope the link works.
Happy Pub Day!!!! So excited for this one to be on shelves.
Such a beautiful, atmospheric book. I love the world Morgenstern created and enjoyed the book—however, sometimes as I was reading along, I would find myself completely lost. Perhaps that‘s how the characters felt too. I think people who loved The Night Circus will probably love this too.
Happiest early birthday to me! A day early on their release and I know my birthday isn‘t till Thursday but this is the absolute best way to start celebrating especially after the day I had 🖤 I hope there is something that brings you joy this Monday 🖤
How is everyone doing on #boutofbooks? I haven‘t been posted much but I have been reading a lot! I am so happy it‘s the weekend and I plan to read all weekend with maybe a movie thrown in
✨The Starless Sea✨ by Erin Morgenstern
Underground Libraries and magical doors weave a setting of the magically subterranean. This book tells a story through many different stories.
I loved the shit out of the Starless Sea. I loved the characters, the setting, and the intertwined plot lines. I think this book succeeded because reading it felt like diving deep into a rabbit hole, and resurfacing afterwards felt like it was all a dream.
Sob! 😭 I can't attend BEA (BookExpo) this year, but if I could go, here are just some of the general fiction titles I'd be looking for. Fall is going to be A-MAZE-ING -- your wish list is going to explode. 📚📚📚 Look up the titles here on Litsy or check out my blog post https://www.bethfishreads.com/2019/05/13-novels-for-your-wish-list-or-what-to.ht...
