An absolutely fantastic collection of literary haikus, I don‘t think I stopped laughing the whole way through!

The Day Before the Fire | Miranda France

This one was a nice change of pace and I learnt a whole lot more about wallpaper restoration than I ever thought I would 😂
A great look at the importance of memories, knowing when to try to fix things, and when the past should give way to the present. The only thing that really let it down was the ending which left way too much unsaid for my liking

The Snow Queen: A Novel | Michael Cunningham

As much as I wanted to love this book I just couldn't connect with the characters or the story itself. Their "search for transcendence" proved to be a bit much self-indulgent introspection for me to enjoy

I love a good retelling and this one was amazing! Pride and prejudice from the perspective of the servants definitely gave a fresh opinion of the actions of the Bennets and the times that they lived in. It was interesting to see the different views and experiences of the different classes within the one household. It was also nice to see that Mrs. Bennet remained as impractical as ever if not more so 😂

I love anything to do with robotics so this was a clear win for me, not to mention the questions it raised about the practicality of robots and human nature itself.

"What could he and she really know of each other, since it was his duty, as a 'decent' fellow, to conceal his past from her, and hers, as a marriageable girl, to have no past to conceal?"
Absolutely loved it (especially all the commentary on society) and who could go past a book with such gorgeous endpapers? ?

"How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important. About something real."
A world without books, horrifying to think about but an amazing read!

Madame Bovary (1857) | Gustave Flaubert
post image

"And Emma tried to find out what one meant exactly in life by the words felicity, passion, rapture, that had seemed to her so beautiful in books"
I absolutely loved the book and I absolutely hated Madame Bovary herself for her many self-indulgent actions that ultimately were to the detriment of everyone around her. While her feelings of powerlessness were understandable, she seemed like a woman that nothing would ever be enough for...
