My 3 year old decided this is me and her 😂
Any fans? I started a while ago, having a very slow start through prologue and first chapter or so
Stephen Graham Jones liked my goodreads review of Mongrels so I guess we're best friends now, right?
This was an awesome book, a classic bildungsroman with a unique hook -- the unnamed narrator is from a family of werewolves and coming into his own transition late. He's dying to experience it but questioning if change will ever come. Amazing story to lose yourself in.
Newest find in my quest to read all the quantum fic
Starting this for my birthday reading !
No matter how many copies I've given away or have permanently "loaned", I seem to always find at LEAST two copies in my home library. It's like my version of the Best of Queen tape. Other books in my library are just morphing into Good Omens after awhile.
Started listening to this earlier and was laughing so hard, I couldn't actually do exercises properly. If it's the same narrator I want to revisit Unmentionable in audio
Happy World Book Day littens!
Have you all seen this new stat section on Goodreads My Stats page? Month by month bar graph of how many books you read and if you click any bar, a handy pop-up of titles comes up! (And look you can see exactly where I had horrible all day morning sickness and too exhausted to read when I was last pregnant in 2015 😂)l
I'd been dying to read All You Zombies for ages but could never find any collection containing it in any of my libraries. So I finally grabbed this on an audio loan -- it took a minute to get used to but I actually really loved Spider Robinson's narration. All You Zombies was fantastically mind bending and all four of the other stories were good too. I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for a larger Heinlein anthology to read.
This was a solid collection and well worth the read for anyone interested in female or classic SFF. I was hoping for something as phenomenal as Sisters of the Revolution edited by the Vandermeers and it wasn't quite so engaging as that but I enjoyed this.
Some of my favorite stories:
Only a Mother
The Tunnel Ahead
Created He Them
Finished last night. I don't think I'll be getting into Malazan but I'm going to give the third book a go in early 2019. I appreciate the epic scope but the story never concentrates anywhere long enough for me to feel invested or anything but removed. I said in my Goodreads review that it was like simultaneously reading a 2* and 4* novel 🤷
And my current reads. On TKaK tonight -- it's interesting, a dark YA fantasy fairy tale retelling of The Little Mermaid where the mermaid is a deadly siren that collects hearts and the prince is a siren hunter. Stylistically it's a little generic to start but an interesting enough premise to keep me in.
I've been a terrible litten lately and not posting so much so here's what I've read so far for Spooktober !
Goth - creepy Japanese teens obsessed with serial killers have some close encounters. A novel of short stories
20th Century Ghosts - solid short story collection though not my favorite Hill
13 Bullets - beast vampires and police MCs
Within These Walls - haunted house + creepy cult + true crime writer MC
Dark Tales - SHIRLEY JACKSON ♥️
Help! A few weeks ago I saw a link here to a fall themed reading challenge for horror, thrillers, dark fantasy, etc etc and I can't find it now. I want to say there was something about 13 in the name of it?
