The Dumb House | John Burnside
post image

I'm reusing The Dumb House because I came across this line today and it jumped out at me and made me think of the #youngandbeautiful prompt: "Ten years before, she would have been considered pretty; now, with the lines around her mouth and the stain of persistent disappointment in her eyes, she was almost beautiful."

I think that's a compliment?? ?

Cinfhen Have u read it??? I‘ve been curious about this title!!?? 7mo
Mdargusch I think there is more minutiae about Victorian life than details about the murder @Cinfhen so it depends on which part you would be interested in. 7mo
Cinfhen Hmmm, that‘s good to know @Mdargusch not sure how interested I am in Victorian Life as opposed to reading about an epidemic ( which sounds more fascinating to me) 7mo
emilyhaldi I haven‘t read it yet... someday!!! @Cinfhen (edited) 7mo
Reviewsbylola I couldn‘t get into this one. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo

Less Than Zero | Bret Easton Ellis

I'm stumped by the #80stoyinbookform challenge so I present for your consideration books by two '80s playboys. #bestIcoulddo

katedensen Different kind of toy 😉 3y
GinaAnderson My thinking exactly! 3y
Qemorio ❤️ Less Than Zero. I read it for the first time this year just before reading The Sellout which references it, a great reading moment for me. The sequel is on my TBR shelf. 3y
GinaAnderson @Qemorio I'll be interested to see how you like the sequel. I've not read it. 3y
ValerieAndBooks I've never read either for some reason... maybe for my birthday challenge reading I will 😊 3y
