So I‘m doing a shameless plug...today I am debuting my first #instanovelette (an Instagram Story that‘s a story), A Fairly Conventional Tale!!! It‘s about an office worker who discovers that her new place of employment is not as conventional as she expected—it serves as a counseling center for fairy tale characters. If you‘re on Instagram, come check it out! I‘m at alysonimagines. Making this was a blast, and if you do read it I hope you enjoy! ❤️

Our Mutual Friend | Charles Dickens
post image
Pickpick

As the last novel Charles Dickens completed before his death, Our Mutual Friend displays the author at the height of his sharp wit and observation of human nature. No shortage of evocative descriptions, colorful dialogue, and magnetic characters here. So overall I give this a thumbs up, although it‘s not my favorite of his. Like most Dickens novels, the gist is: characters scheme and suffer, and a lucky few make it to a (relatively) happy ending.

Today‘s #bookhaul from Half Price Books. When the heat index is 104 F, not much to do other than stay inside and...buy more books! 🥵 Been curious about Middlemarch and was excited to find this lovely hardcover edition for $12! Also curious to read more stories by the author of “The Yellow Wallpaper.” #hpbhaul

Eyelit Middlemarch was my pick for this month‘s book club! It‘s so good! Be prepared for LOTS of detail though 😄 1mo
alysonwrites @Eyelit Nice! I would have loved to hear your commentary, so sad I didn‘t make it to the meeting. Well I just finished reading another super long Victorian novel—my pick was Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens. So I think I am up for this...later, after I take a break from Victorian doorstops, haha! 😅 1mo
Eyelit Ooh, one of the Dickens novels I haven‘t read yet. Looking forward to your review! We can def talk Middlemarch when you get around to it 1mo

Sure Signs of Crazy | Karen Harrington

In honor of National Book Lover‘s Day, here is a bookish quote from one of my most favorite books of all time. It‘s the sweetest coming of age novel I have ever read, and every summer I laugh and cry my way through it like catching up with an old friend. To add to MC Sarah Nelson‘s astute observation here, I believe the best books, like this one, get better and better each time you read them. ☺️❤️📚

Soul of the Sword | Julie Kagawa

Pickpick

THIS is the epic Japanese mythology series I have been looking for all my life. Oh. My. Sugoi!!! I loved the first book, but I loved this gorgeously cinematic sequel even better. The magic is darker, the enemies are more dangerous, and the battles are more intense. Yet the fierce loyalty of half-kitsune (fox shapeshifter) Yumeko and her intrepid companions on a quest to save their friend is out of this world inspiring. Mad, mad love. 👊🖤

Eyelit This sounds awesome! What‘s the first book? 1mo
alysonwrites @Eyelit The first book in the trilogy is Shadow of the Fox. It‘s sooo good! Reads like an anime movie, and I mean that in the best way. 1mo

CJ‘s family motto is Katsuyamas Never Quit. It‘s a lot to live up to when her mom is a high-achieving career climber and the only thing CJ feels she‘s good at is working at her aunt‘s flower shop. But CJ is about to bloom with her own brand of moxie. This book packs a lot of tough issues—racism, teen pregnancy, LGBTQ equality, and the dark legacy of the WWII Japanese-American concentration camps—while also being boldly optimistic and funny. 🖤

Under the Dome | King, Stephen
post image
Pickpick

OK, I‘m a big scaredy-cat. I don‘t usually read horror. But I have been curious about Stephen King. So I decided to try this 1,000-page thriller and wow. This confirms King‘s rep as a master storyteller (who likes to throw in lots of blood and severed limbs). Reading Under the Dome was like trapping a group of humans in a jar and watching how quickly they turn on each other. A horrifyingly fascinating study of human nature—good and very, very bad.

Soubhiville Wow, good for you! That‘s a huge undertaking for a genre you don‘t usually read. I‘m glad you enjoyed it. 2mo

If you like your Indian mythology with generous dollops of adventure, friendship, humor, and Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings references, then start reading the Aru Shah series, like, yesterday! What I love about this second book is that both the heroes and the villains have baggage, and you can‘t paint anyone as purely good or evil. The characters are real and relatable, while the magic is delightfully over the top. So much fun! And wisdom too.

OK, I am officially rebranding my book review backlog as a Book Review Roundup.

As France enters World War II and Nazis invade the country, two sisters—one a rule-follower, the other a rebel—struggle to make the most of the few choices they have in this difficult time, even when none of the choices are ideal. Which sister is the braver one? Which sister is the Nightingale? I dare you to decide by the end of this heart-wrenching, cinematic feast of a page-turner. P.S. Be prepared for some ugly crying.

alysonwrites Note: I actually managed to read almost the entire 500+ pages in one day!! 😌 (All but the first 80 or so pages, which I read the day before.) It is that engrossing. 4mo

The Emissary | Y?ko Tawada
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve never read anything quite like The Emissary. The story revolves primarily around the viewpoints of Mumei, a frail but vivacious boy, and Yoshiro, his spry great-grandfather, who are living in a post-apocalyptic Japan where the elderly never die and the children age prematurely. More stream-of-consciousness than linear narrative, this book is sad, bizarre, and satirical by turns, but maintains a dreamlike and surprisingly lighthearted tone.

alysonwrites BTW its surreal quality makes this book the perfect companion for insomnia. I read a good chunk on a sleepless night, and I felt like I was dreaming with my eyes open! 4mo

I could say this is a story about numbers. The Professor is an elderly mathematician whose memory only lasts 80 minutes (the result of a car accident in 1975), and he navigates life through numbers. He encourages both the Housekeeper who looks after him and her son to see the poetry of math as he does. But this quietly moving story is really about the enduring friendship these three characters develop and the family they become for each other.

alysonwrites Note: My ebook copy doesn‘t have a proper cover, so I designed a quick and ready cover image for better aesthetic appeal. 🙂 4mo

In this essay collection, young refugee women from around the world share the hardships of fleeing their home countries. What struck me most is that every girl carries something precious: her faith, her childhood memories, the love of a relative she had to leave behind. All carry fragile hope for a better life, and many carry an abiding love for their country. Fleeing one‘s home is not a choice, unless personal safety is considered a choice.

I 🖤 this book so hard! Never read a biography of any of the Brontes before, and their story is even more enchanting and tragic than I could have imagined. It‘s delightful to know the Bronte sisters often wrote and read their work to each other at home, and heartbreaking that all their lives ended so soon. Claire Harman tells the story of my fave Bronte with such sparkle and poignancy that it reads like a novel. More wonder that it‘s all true.

alysonwrites @MellieAntoinette Thanks for encouraging me to ditch my TBR for this gem! 💎 (And it took me much less than a month to read, I‘m just slow to post my review.) 4mo
MellieAntoinette @alysonwrites So good, right! And the book design is beautiful! So glad you enjoyed it!! 🤗 🤗 ♥️ 4mo
alysonwrites @MellieAntoinette Yes, it‘s beautifully written and beautifully designed! Speaking of the Brontes, have you seen the PBS miniseries, To Walk Invisible? I finally finished watching it yesterday. I ❤️ the cast, especially the sisters, and the acting is great. But I‘m glad I read this book first, because the miniseries doesn‘t tell the whole story. 4mo

The nice thing about having my books on actual bookshelves again (instead of buried in plastic bins in my closet) is that I‘m picking up titles I haven‘t read in years, like this old favorite. I chose this for a quick binge read yesterday and really enjoyed it. Such a simple yet captivating YA mystery, and it‘s got a touch of Jane Eyre gothic, if Jane Eyre were 12 and went to work for a moody employer in the Berkshires instead of Thornfield Hall.

Hooray, my first #shelfie!!! As of last night, I finally have bookshelves in my room for the first time in approximately a million years! I know it might sound crazy to other book nerds that I‘ve gone so long without them, but I used to move every few years and I just got used to hauling my books around in giant plastic bins. It‘s so nice being able to see my books on display and not have to dig through bins in my closet anymore! More below...👇

alysonwrites I absolutely love these Container Store shelves—no assembly, just unfold, and they look fantastic! (My photo doesn‘t really do them justice.) This shelf is in my reading nook; I have another shelf by my bed and one in my closet. I want to stack a fourth shelf on top of the one by my bed but will need some help with the wall brackets, so that‘s a project for later. (edited) 4mo

”The energy of book titles and the words inside them are very powerful. In Japan, we say that ‘words make our reality.‘ The words we see and with which we come into contact tend to bring about events of the same nature. In that sense, you will become the person who matches the books you have kept.” Came across this advice while waiting for my new bookshelves at the Container Store. Never thought about this, but there might be some truth to it. 🤔

I loved Austin Kleon‘s Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work, so I had to read his latest. Each of his books tackles a different aspect of creativity, and this one addresses the timely dilemma of how to keep making art when you “feel as if the world had gotten dumber and meaner overnight.” A pep talk both inspiring and practical, illustrated with Kleon‘s newspaper blackout poems and other art, plus lots of great quotes.

alysonwrites TL;DR: I‘ve read “The Lottery” but none of Shirley Jackson‘s other stories, so I was excited to find the tagged book. Haven‘t read much Stephen King at all (because I‘m a scaredy-cat 🙀), but been curious about Under the Dome for a while and there‘s something appealing about a giant book for $9.99. Also appealing is snagging an expensive literary mag for over 60% off—this Granta issue is all about Japan so yay cool! 🎌 5mo

This book is high voltage. Naomi Alderman portrays a world very much like the real one with a cataclysmic twist: women are stronger than men, awakening the ability to generate shocks from an organ in their bodies. Although some aspects felt like poetic justice to me as a woman, this is still a dark dystopia. As long as any people group is oppressed, justice cannot be complete. Most terrifying are the parallels this book points to in our own world.

I finally pushed myself to read this, and I‘m glad I did. What I expected: a terrifying dystopia. Check. What surprised me: how beautifully Margaret Atwood paints this dark world. It‘s like reading a novel-length prose poem. The language Atwood uses is painfully exquisite, as if the MC sees for the first time the beauty of life and love that has been stolen from her—which makes the dystopia she lives in more bleak and horrifying in contrast.
