I‘m only about halfway through, so no spoilers please, but can‘t Jocasta do better than Quentin? She even wants to pop in and clean his awful fish flat!

(Sadly, this is not my copy; I‘m reading on Kindle. 😏)

rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Thanks for the warning! 2w
quietjenn @rubyslippersreads @Ruthiella Kindle for me, too! I love the price and the instant gratification. And I do think Jocasta is the real star of the story and deserves so much more than Quentin. 2w

Little Souls: A Novel | Sandra Dallas
post image

This novel about the influenza epidemic in 1918 Colorado is fascinating so far, but there‘s one line I just can‘t relate to.

The two sisters often tell each other “Dream of clowns,” the way most of us would say “Pleasant dreams.” It‘s because they have fond memories of a childhood trip to the circus, but clowns are the last thing I want to dream of! 😳 #coulrophobia #ARC #HappyHalloween
