I was browsing books on my five star shelf here on litsy and when I came to this one I realized my post from 3 years ago about it was the third post! Lol. Totally lovely, definitely underrated paranormal read set in the Arizona desert before paranormal was fashionable. Rattler courtesy of our local zoo 🐍🌵☀️ #30junebooks @howjessreads

Thank you @BarbaraTheBibliophage for this amazing book. It made me want to go back to Tucson and wander the mountains. I also loved that the author described the art in a way that made me want to go and see it.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m so happy you liked it! 👏🏻👏🏻😍😍 2y

I have had a very bad week at work, then today was payroll. I opened my #booktoteswap from @BarbaraTheBibliophage I know what I am doing this weekend! I love the skulls on the bag so I had to take a picture of it with the collection!!!!Also working in Social Services the post it notes are perfect!

BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m thrilled you like the tote! It matches your collection, which is super. Enjoy the Bardugo and Wood Wife! Hopefully you‘ll feel more relaxed with them than you have this week. 😘 2y

So much of this book is wonderful, and over half of that is that it is filtered through the view of Maggie Black, the mostly-narrator and my #girlcrush. One of the few books where I didn't just daydream myself in the place of the protagonist. Incidentally, this book also introduced me to surrealism and cemented my love for magical realism, so there's a lot of crushing going on. Crushing all over the place.

"We're talking about poems, words on a page," fox said tapping his knee, "and what those words turn into when they slip inside your brain." He tapped his head. "It's magic; and magic disappears if you Try to hard to pin it down."

"The desert wasn't as she'd imagined it at all: a Sahara landscape of sand and dunes. Rather, it was a Japanese garden made of stone, a sage-green land of low, gnarled trees, creosote bushes and cactus."
