In the Woods | Tana French
post image

“. . . I described my classmates as “a herd of mouth-breathing fucktard yokels who wade around in a miasma of cliché so thick you can practically smell the bacon and cabbage and cow shite and altar candles.” Even assuming I was having a bad day, I think this shows a certain lack of respect for cultural differences.”
This is my first Tana French. So far, so good!

Oh, how angry and despairing I am! I already knew and agreed with Synder‘s big points on healthcare in the US, but he is very good at weaving in the details, the effects, the havoc . . . This book is tiny, but mighty. Another one I wish I could make all people in the US read.

Megabooks I appreciated this too. Good insights. 1y

First, I read it slowly - a few pages at a time- to make it last. Then I read it again in one sitting. A vampire and a werewolf fall in love. Not Sarah Anderson‘s usual Sarah‘s Scribbles stuff, but just as adorable.

(In the summer of 2016) “. . . it was common to hear in certain circles the disbelieving cries, “This is not America,” or “I don‘t recognize my country,” or “This is not who we are.” Except that this was and is our country and this was and is who we are, whether we have recognized it or not.”

Bookstore haul! Got these beauties. (Am currently re-reading Wolf Hall to get ready for the new Mantel.) Plus - cute kitty sticky notes. Remember, bookstores make a lot more money from the sidelines than the books, so get those socks, pencils, stickers, etc. when you get your books.
