“She opened her eyes as she spoke, but when she heard the door slam after Beth she closed them again quickly, yet it seemed as if she did it needlessly, for the darkness which rushed over her came not from outside but from within.”

Loving this book, intrigued where it is headed. #buddyread #readICT #Flowers #Platycodon

BkClubCare “Her features became disorganized as she attempted a look of animated interest.” LOL 23h
BarbaraBB I just read another wonderful book by her: 18h
BkClubCare @BarbaraBB - yay! You enjoyed it. I love this author. 17h
BkClubCare “Even sitting still she was conscious of the violence of the emotion which assailed her, as if it had an origin outside and away from her.” 16h

“No gulls escorted the trawlers going out of the harbour, at teatime, as they would on the return journey; they sat upon the rocking waters without excitement, perching along the sides of little boats, slapped up and down by one wake after another. #FirstLineFridays #BuddyRead #readICT

Tamra Love that cover! 5d
BkClubCare @Tamra - I ordered this edition because I was excited to read the Sarah Waters Introduction (which I will read AFTER!! 🤣) 5d
Tamra @BkClubCare funny, I do the same! 5d

Devil House | JOHN. DARNIELLE

Pickpick

I think I read one too many reviews of this excellently-told, creatively-expressed, fascinatingly-built story within a story within another. I enjoyed it - but give yourself the time. And though this has horror described, I wouldn‘t call it “Horror” — it is more like fictional true crime. #readict

Photo upleft is a “devil house” of Tauy Creek KS and the other is a close up of #CoconutCreamPie for May8. #CaresPieShow

EvieBee Mmm. Question: does this in any way involve supernatural elements? That‘s the part of “horror” and are just a no-no for me. But the true crime aspect interests me. 1w
BkClubCare @EvieBee - nope, nothing supernatural other than investigating rumors of such. It is about a true crime writer trying to find the real truth through the rumor. (edited) 1w
EvieBee Awesome! I‘ll need to get on this asap. Thanks for the recommendation! 💙 1w
BkClubCare @EvieBee - great! Let me know your thoughts. It has some high praise and some NOT. I think no expectations is best (but that is SO hard!) 1w

BkClubCare @Nutmegnc - hey, sure why not! I am only sharing in @xicanti ‘s theme for the month. #gaymay 2w
BkClubCare @Nutmegnc - no? Just haven‘t had time to review and attempt all the videos you sent me!!! (Send me your blank template?! Or did you) 2w
Nutmegnc @BkClubCare I can only send a blank bingo card because it will only save as a static image, you wouldn‘t be able to move the numbers around. And @xicanti count me in #gaymay (edited) 2w

I am participating in a Buddy Read (not Litsy - but feel free to join with me) of this AND Ann Patchett‘s Truth & Beauty. I am going to try reading a chapter here then there etc, even if I doubt the texts relate in that manner. Will be interesting, I‘m sure, either way! If the spirit catches on either, will devote focus there. #Memoir #Nonfiction #Debut #ReadICT

This image is my “Poetry Bookmark”. In some ways, it is my Coronavirus Journey Log. What you see is every poetry collection I have made my way through, a poem every day, since 1/1/2020. I am shocked and/or humbled that I have touched this slip every day for 800 days. (I looked it up.) 😳

I started the tagged book today.
