Suicide Woods: Stories | Benjamin Percy

Pickpick

This is my favourite short story collection I‘ve read this year. Suicide Woods and The Uncharted were VERY good. My main issue with some of the earlier stories in the collection is they felt too short.

Even though I generally don‘t enjoy them I‘m still trying a few more short story collections for the end of the year. Hope there are some good spookers in here.

#BookReport

🌠 Finished Klotsvog which was interesting but didn't quite move me, & King Lear which was madness & chaos & just superb
🌚 Read Black Light, a short story collection that's on the 2020 Tournament of Books longlist, but I was left indifferent #ToB

#WeeklyForecast

🌺 Started The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne for #NYRBbookclub & I'm already charmed
❓ Hope to fit in one more book this week but not sure what—can't wait to find out 😁

Mehso-so

I'm not sure what it is with contemporary short story collections from the North American Anglosphere, but I often feel deflated/bored. This has received critical acclaim & good reviews, & there's no denying that King Parsons can write a perfect sentence. However, despite the raw, grimy atmosphere & focus on people on the margins, it still came off like a cool, nonchalant, workshopped to death collection that left me feeling empty. #ToB #netgalley

Letzten Monat kamen einige Neuzugänge bei mir an, weil ich die Kategorie Verlosung im #Bookcrossing Forum gewonnen habe. Darunter auch diese Sammlung von Kürzestgeschichten, die es ganz schön in sich haben 😱
