White is for Witching
White is for Witching | Helen Oyeyemi
110 posts | 90 read | 6 reading | 220 to read
High on the cliffs near Dover, the Silver family is reeling from the loss of Lily, mother of twins Eliot and Miranda, and beloved wife of Luc. Miranda misses her with particular intensity. Their mazy, capricious house belonged to her mother’s ancestors, and to Miranda, newly attuned to spirits, newly hungry for chalk, it seems they have never left. Forcing apples to grow in winter, revealing and concealing secret floors, the house is fiercely possessive of young Miranda. Joining voices with her brother and her best friend Ore, it tells her story: haunting in every sense, and a spine-tingling tribute to the power of magic, myth and memory. Miri I conjure you . . . ‘Superbly atmospheric. The dark tones of Poe in her haunting have the elasticity of Haruki Murakami’s surreal mental landscapes’ Independent ‘The kind of prose that creeps off the page, crawls up the spine and burrows deep into the reader’s paralysed mind’ Daily Mail ‘White is for Witching should establish Oyeyemi as an ambitious voice in modern macabre; master of the light, lyrical touch and dark, half-hinted suggestion’ The Times ‘Entrancing’ TLS ‘Helen Oyeyemi was a literary prodigy. Now, she is ready to make the transition from wunderkind to established author. Remarkable’ Daily Telegraph

#BewitchedBotheredandBewildered #MayMovieMagic
I'm about to post a gushing review of my first Oyeyemi and after I finished it I immediately added more of hers to my TBR.
You could say I was *bewitched* by her magical style, *bothered* that I don't have more of her books on my shelf, and *bewildered* that I haven't read her before now.
@rohit-sawant @Cinfhen

Aimeesue She‘s one of my faves. Boy, Snow, Bird is my favorite of hers, I think. Or Mister Fox. Or Gingerbread. Scratch that, they‘re all good. 3w
Billypar @Aimeesue I read Mister Fox: I didn't want it to end. I could have gone back to the beginning and started over- not something I usually feel, even with books I like. 3w
Cinfhen I wish I could appreciate her uniqueness more but her books just don‘t work well for me. I do have and will try soon 3w
See All 6 Comments
Billypar @Cinfhen I don't know how her others compare to Mr. Fox, but I could see how if you weren't on board with the overall style, it would be a little frustrating. 3w
Aimeesue @Cinfhen @Billypar I love her style, but I can see why some don't. Warning, though: Gingerbread is probably the most Oyeyemi of all there's a loose plot, but you'll probably be lost a lot of the time - not a whole lot of sensible coherence. 3w
Cinfhen I‘m a little worried @Aimeesue 😬 3w

In this novel we meet the twins Miranda (Miri) and Eliot, and their dad and grandmother. The story is told in first person, and since that would switch through the novel I had problems with knowing who was telling the story when. This made it hard for me to connect with the characters and the writing style.

Aimeesue Beautiful cover, though! (edited) 3w

I most confess that I haven‘t been given this much thought, but I love literary references in books

It‘s been too long since I read “Wuthering Heights” and I‘ve only watched the TV series of “Vanity Fair”, so I don‘t know if I agree with the conclusion here.

This one wasn't for me, but I definitely want to read more of Oyeyemi. Her writing is lyrical and there are some lines that really stand out. But this book was too ambiguous for me, the kind that makes me feel like, am I too dumb to understand this abstract symbolism? Or is it just maddeningly vague? Read it if you like: fractured narratives, lyrical writing, creepy settings, and feeling adrift in hints.

A haunted house book unlike any I've read before. Very Shirley Jackson-ish in the writing style and story with it's threads if mental illness and dysfunctional family. Not for everyone and don't expect a typical horror story, but very good.

I just finished my favorite October read so far! It‘s a dark, creepy, unsettling, and strange book. Oyeyemi‘s writing is beautifully strange and meandering, following the living as well as ghosts, making you question what‘s real and what‘s not. She also tackles themes of racism and xenophobia in unexpected ways. I highly recommend this to readers of magical realism or literary fiction who are looking for something to put them in the October mood.

#TBRtemptation post 5! Described as Gothic horror with magical realism. In a vast house on the Dover cliffs, the Silver family is reeling from the loss of Lily, wife & mother of twins. The house itself isn't doing well, with its creaks & maze of rooms & winter fruit when there should be none on the trees. The daughter, Miranda, becomes more attuned to the house's spirits than her father and brother. Then she vanishes. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

So just finished this #LMPBC read. Really struggled with finishing it as it definitely wasn't my cup of tea but honestly loved reading something I wouldn't normally have chosen to read. This was also my first experience reading anything that I can recall from the Gothic genre. Getting ready to mail it out this weekend to @VanChocStrawberry . You should have it in a few days 🙂

Happy Pi-day! Not even making the connection, I baked a pie with winter apples the weekend we finished White is for Witching. Our discussion at the book club consisted mostly of questions, and we delved upon the many allusions and metaphors that may (or may not!) fill this strange, fascinating book.

FlowerFairy That pie looks delicious! 1y
GhostStories Thanks, @FlowerFairy, it is pretty good! The apples I used were so sweet I ended up not having to add any sugar. 1y
Meredith_From_STL Wait....so winter apples actually are a thing? Are they red and white in real life? 1y

Readers of group F. I have something to confess. I am only on page 73 of my book because I rrreally don't love it. I keep waiting for the magic to happen. I've loved every word of her four other books. I guess maybe there's a good reason this is her least known, least talked about book. Maybe it's just me? I hope so, for your sakes! 😬 How is everybody else doing?

RainyDayReading Haven‘t managed to start mine yet ^^‘ I was going to today but decided I would reorganize my bookshelves real quick. Well here I am 4 hours later still reorganizing haha 😅 1y
whatsthEStorey There is no reorganizing bookshelves "real quick!" ?? 1y

VanChocStrawberry Do you want to switch to a different book? Or just power through? 1y
whatsthEStorey @VanChocStrawberry oh that's too bad! Hope she's ok too! As to switching, I'm on the fence. I mean, just because I don't like it, doesn't mean you three wouldn't. But if you don't, it's not an easy read to get through. 1y
Amanda61 Sorry. Completely missed this conversation 😞 Definitely not to late to switch. Though sometimes, pushing through a book when you aren't loving it can be rather rewarding as well! Hopefully it picks up for you though. 1y

Aiming to send it out Friday since that‘s the next time I‘ll be able to make it to the post office 😪 I think the next step, if you‘re finished with yours, is to send it along to the next person. I think you‘re sending your book along to me and I‘m sending my book along to @whatsthEStorey 1y

Amanda61 @VanChocStrawberry @RainyDayReading @whatsthEStorey I've finished reading my pick but am just working on going back and marking it up (which is way more difficult than I thought it'd be). Aiming to have mine mailed out on Saturday so this weekend works perfect for me. 1y

Read for “Litsy Markup Postal Book Club” Round 1. Oyeyemi is a very interesting writer. This particular book was a little more confusing than I would have liked. Thankfully, @Natasha.C.Barnes indicated who was speaking when the narrative voice changed. Without that, I‘m not sure I would have totally understood what was going on. Always better with a little help from your friends!

#LMPBC Group A @TheBookHippie @LauraJ

Natasha.C.Barnes Oh yay! I was worried that marking that would make it seem like I thought y'all wouldn't be able to figure it out, but I figured it was more a time-saving measure. We're all reading so many books, no need to spend the time to decode it. 1y
