A western, but make it woman-centered and queer. Wish Netflix would do an adaptation of this.

Look. It‘s not my fault that there is a bookstore near the medical center. One deserves a treat for getting one‘s physical.

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. 3y

Please shop at indie bookstores either online or in person. Let‘s keep them alive during this pandemic. Remember that they make more money off non-book items, so indulge in candles, cards, and more!

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.
