Eggs
The Angel's Game | Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Mehso-so

Pulp fiction writer David Martín is struggling to stay afloat. When he is approached by a mysterious publisher offering a book deal that seems almost too good to be real, David leaps at the chance…after that the plot becomes intricate and mind-boggling. David has a brain tumor, then he doesn‘t. He becomes an unreliable narrator. I think I need to go back and read Shadow of the Wind in hopes it will all make sense.

I couldn't let November slip by without paying homage to Harriet and her count in The Etruscan --- eggs, pomegranates, boars are all symbols of rebirth in the novel, a gothic tale set in 1922....

Here is my Bookspin for December 🎄📚 @TheAromaofBooks

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and down in the dumps this week. My plan for now is to focus on what I'm already reading and take the pressure off myself.

I may be on track for a November Bingo, but I don't want to count my chickens just yet... 😋

TheAromaofBooks Good luck!!! It can be hard when some of the fun challenges/goals turn into chores. Just remember that you can take a break any time you need to!! 1d
RaeLovesToRead @TheAromaofBooks Thanks! 😊 I'm just going to take it nice and easy and if I get any Bingos it's a bonus. I look forward to Bookspin every month. Thanks for all the work you put into it 💕 1d

11-24-21: My 119th finished book of 2021! The sad story of the Blackwood sisters, Mary Katherine and Constance, who live with their ill uncle, Julian. The rest of their family is dead, poisoned, but by whom? The villagers despise the girls, who live a quiet life outside of town, but the sisters adore each other. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣1️⃣9️⃣

66% ...the plague is in full force now, and it's a bit difficult to read it now since Covid. 😐 (But check out this nice cover of the book that I found online!)

This isn't a book to be read in a single sitting; space it out a bit to enjoy it properly. I think it‘s enduring appeal is due to the fact that it‘s a deeply multi-layered literary novel, disguised as romantic fiction. You come for the spooky Gothic love story, but you stay for the evergreen interrogation of women‘s subservience to (and subversion of) the rule of men.
