This was in today‘s mail, via #LibraryThing Early Reviewers. I‘m very much looking forward to reading Leduc‘s perspectives, especially since I‘m Deaf which is considered a disability.

Emilymdxn That‘s so fascinating and I‘m so glad this book exists (or will exist soon)! I just saw a panel discussion earlier this year which touched on disability in fairy tale and it was so great. I have a chronic condition, which i never know if I should define as a disability or not, but it‘s made me have a more personal stake in these issues. 15h

Winter Birds | Jim Grimsley

I really know nothing about this book or author. I decided to read it for a reading challenge on #LibraryThing to read a book with something connected to #winter in the title. The book seems as If it will be a sad family story. I‘ll keep reading it to see if it keeps up my interest.

SqueakyChu What beautiful writing, but what a terribly sad story. I have about 50 more pages to go. 1d

The Heap: A Novel | Sean Adams
post image
Pickpick

“The Heap“ uses dark humor, ironic narrative distance, and intensifying action to give the reader a eerie and delicious sense of dystopian déjà vu. Despite weak characterization of the primary characters, I recommend it to fans of the genre.

Aimeesue Yay! And it's good with salsa! 3d
jillrhudy @Aimeesue I knocked water onto it last night and washed off the salsa. Stella will find it tasty anyway. 3d
Aimeesue @jillrhudy Well, she would, Miss SuperNose that she is. Weirdly, this book showed up when I did a search for "funny sardonic sci fi books," looking for a Jalabokaflod present for Ian. ? (edited) 2d

Another #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer book arrived yesterday. I‘m always kind of wary of books and videos that purport to teach singing technique, but the author here has excellent credentials. I‘m keeping an open mind.

VoraciousMind Keep us posted! I would be curious to know how good the book ends up being! 1mo
Lynnsoprano @VoraciousMind Right now it‘s looking like a mixed bag! 4w
VoraciousMind @Lynnsoprano That is too bad. ☹️ 4w

This is a nice collection of personal essays by women who have chosen to do freelance work. What I liked most about it is that the women shared, in their own (seemingly only lightly edited) words, a variety of reasons and rationales for working outside the traditional 9-to-5. And the writers are from all over the world, so the big differences in cultural context for women working in much the same online workspaces were highlighted.

Christine Thanks to #librarything #earlyreviewers for the ARC. 🙂 1mo

So excited to finally start this one. I had given up hope on it actually arriving, but bring on the nightmares, people! I‘m ready! (Please be good. Please be good.) #Bailey is uninterested, of course.

Book Mail! Received this ARC this week, from LibraryThing‘s Early Reviewers August list. At least I think August 🤔 I have one other nonfiction ARC to read first. I love folktales of all kinds, so I expect this will be a good read! #folktales #earlyreviewers #librarything #ARC

The Nanny | Gilly Macmillan

Pickpick

Although probably not my favorite Gilly MacMillan novel, this one was decent and kind of creepy/evil. Is the Nanny who she says she is, or is she not? Several unlikeable main characters and the ending was a bit far fetched, but the story did keep me guessing.

Not the tagged book but by the same editor.
A collection of stories about fairies using each letter of the alphabet.

This was an interesting anthology, some of the stories were really good, others were too short to really understand the story properly. I loved the alphabet link to the stories. I enjoyed trying to guess what the word might be. My favourite story was G is for Gentry.
