The Hours Before Dawn | Celia Fremlin
post image
Pickpick

A sleep-deprived mother of two young girls and a baby, and an oblivious husband take in a lodger. She soon become suspicious of the lodger but between the chaotic household routine and her exhaustion, are all the sinister going-ons part of her imagination? Good plotting and great atmosphere, it also portrays the challenge of motherhood in the 1950s with a little humour. The tension and suspense mounts slowly, the writing rambles a bit, 👇

erzascarletbookgasm ..(cont) but it serves to add to the state of mind of the unreliable narrator. A satisfying psychological suspense read. Recommended. 👍

The Hours Before Dawn | Celia Fremlin
post image

In my current read, Louise is a young housewife with two young daughters and a baby who cries every night, leaving her awake to nurse her baby intermittently. Already lack of sleep for weeks, she is overwhelmed by domestic chaos, prying and complaining neighbours, and a growing suspicion of her new lodger. She cannot differentiate between dream and reality and things turn serious when she ‘keeps losing her baby‘.

Salvation of a Saint | Keigo Higashino

Pickpick

This police procedural will have you wanting to finish it in one sitting. Det. Kusanagi, his partner, and physicist Yukawa dubbed ‘Det. Galileo‘ once again work together to solve a crime. The plot is simple, the crime is brilliant..an almost perfect crime. From earlier on, we are led to suspect a character, but that doesn‘t take away the suspense and will still keep us hooked on. An absorbing ‘howdunnit‘. I liked this better than the first book.👍

Cinfhen Do you need to read the first book to appreciate this one??? It sounds really good!!! 5d

I liked how the book was set up, alternating between the present and letters written by Ingrid. An intriguing story about love, motherhood, hope, and regret. The story is engaging, especially as insight of the marriage is revealed, and there are parts which are beautiful. I‘m in the minority here.. didn‘t love it as I thought I would. 🤷‍♀️

I‘ve been fascinated by the Bronte sisters, after reading some of their novels. This book is a very readable biography of the sisters, told in clear prose and included some archived pictures. It captures pretty well the life and times of the Bronte family. However I find it not detailed enough to be deemed as a biography. I‘m not in favour of the author including a summary of each novel written by the sisters in here. It acts as a spoiler. 👇

erzascarletbookgasm ..(cont.) I guess this book serves as a good introduction or companion to younger readers who are not yet familiar with the Bronte‘s works. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1w

”You cannot put a Fire out”

You cannot put a Fire out —
A Thing that can ignite
Can go, itself, without a Fan —
Upon the slowest Night —

You cannot fold a Flood —
And put it in a Drawer —
Because the Winds would find it out —
And tell your Cedar Floor —

By Emily Dickinson.

Picnic at Hanging Rock | Joan Lindsay
post image
Pickpick

This classic is unlike any mystery you can imagine. Three girls and a teacher mysteriously vanished from a girls‘ boarding school field trip. A search and police investigation ensued, and other characters in the story tried to unravel the mystery. More significantly is how they cope with the disappearance, and how the bizarre incident changed the course of their lives forever. The picnic scene is described with beautiful dreamlike narrative. ?

erzascarletbookgasm ..(cont.). The whole story is a surreal mix of ambiguity and haunting mystery. I‘m going to search for the 1975 film, said to be a great success, and also the 2018 tv series, which gives a backstory to some characters. 2w

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.
