Smoke and Mirrors | Neil Gaiman

I would listen to Neil Gaiman read a new york city phone book. Including the ads. I swear he'd make it interesting.

This book is not it for me. Uninteresting characters, everyone is miserable, bad thing after bad thing (and I LOVED A Little Life, y'all), and worst of all, I just don't care for the writing.

Book club discussion will be interesting.

Starting this audiobook. Hilarious so far 🤣 I love these types of memoirs

KathyWheeler I really enjoyed his memoir. He deals with some heavy stuff in it, but always with humor. 3mo

KathyWheeler @CoveredInRust I‘m glad you‘re enjoying it. I also listened to Tan‘s and Karamo‘s memoirs, but I liked Jonathan‘s the best. (edited) 3mo

Prater Violet: A Novel | Christopher Isherwood

Another novel based on Isherwood's life--this time on his experience writing for a film. Awesome look into the film industry and the social setting of early 30s England with the looming threat of Hitler.

Not the best cozy I've read. I don't like it when I feel the need to throttle the main character for acting like a 12 year old when she likes someone and is jealous.

Really loved this one. Wild turn of events halfway through. Definitely recommend it. I hope more of this author's work is translated in the future. Don't skip over the really sweet afterward written by the author talking about her excitement for one of her books to be translated. :)

Carr nails the creepy atmospheric wonderfulness that I love to read/watch in books/films. However, the actially mystery portion was only sufficient. I found myself squinting a bit, if you know what I mean.
