The Greater Inclination | Edith Wharton
post image

Our newest #litereads selection is The Fulness of Life by Edith Wharton! Thank you for your patience. This short story is one of Wharton's works from the 1890s that she wasn't as fond of, but is now considered to be reflective of her life and marriage. You can find links to read with your eyes or your ears in my full post linked below. Once you've had the chance to read the story, drop a comment to share your thoughts!

Celebrations in Nunavut | Aviaq Johnston

Pickpick

Our most recent #litereads pick, Tarnikuluk by Aviaq Johnston, has a full review available! Thank you for your patience. This story is beautifully constructed, incredibly moving, and powerfully painful. Those interested in reading it should be aware that it is potentially triggering due to content about suicide being centered. My review discusses this content as well, but you can find my full review in the link below.

Our double week #litereads selection of Bread of Sacrifice by Samira Azzam has come to a close. Despite issues with the copy I was able to provide for access to read, this was an intense, emotional, and hyper realistic depiction of a Palestinian man's experience as a soldier in the 1947-1949 Palestinian War. Drop a comment about what you thought. Full review in the link below. New selection announced tomorrow.

Our latest #litereads week has ended with our completion of A Lady's Maid by Sarah Gailey. This story is a Victorian comedy of manners full of secret android technology. It was completely to my taste, and I had a lot of good laughs throughout. You can read my full review in the link below. Drop a comment to share your own thoughts on this story!

Our new (and late, I'm sorry!) #litereads pick is A Lady's Maid by Sarah Gailey. This steampunk short story was published a couple of years ago by the B&N SFF blog. You can find the link to read the full story in my full introductory post (in the link below). Drop a comment to share your thoughts on the story described as "A Victorian comedy of manners: Androids, bad clams, bad men, and one ambitious kitchen girl."

This past week's #litereads pick for the #halloweenreads #octoberreads season (our final as part of our spooky fall reads) was Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler. This scifi modern classic story is a fascinating read that deals with an alien culture, pregnancy, love, and coming of age. I definitely enjoyed it, and you can read my full review in the link below.

elizabethlk Apologies for being behind schedule, my health has been especially disagreeable recently. I'm hopeful that everything should stay back in the Sunday-Saturday schedule after this. 1mo

Our most recent #litereads #halloweenreads pick was The Fruit of My Woman by Han Kang, and the week for it has come to an end. This story of a woman transforming into a tree is a wild ride, and one I found to be engaging and enthralling. You can read my full review in the link below. Drop a comment to let us know what you think of the story.
