Pickpick

My first Winterson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She is so adept with novels and themes that she can play with structure and sentences and make UP become DOWN like some kind of literary juggler. And all the while I‘m watching the things in her hands, applauding myself when I recognise spinning tea kettles and toasters.
All of which is to say that Winterson plays with the novel Frankenstein and the life of Mary Shelley - a subject I love ⬇️

Centique She creates a kind of mirror image of the stories and themes in the near future, broadening them to encompass AI, transgender and non binary states of being, intellect versus body versus soul. It‘s a spinning top of a book that will make you breathless but may also leave you with unanswered questions. 😍 (edited) 2w
JennyM Great review - I‘m stacking! 2w
Moray_Reads I saw Winterson at the Edinburgh Book Festival and she sort of performed some sections of the books using film and sound, recreating some of the conversations and it was brilliant 1w

Loved the illustrations in this picture book.

It is also so touching and a bit heartbreaking that Mary Shelley would sit at her mother‘s grave to read. #NFNov

This picture book tells the story of Mary Shelley‘s life although it ends with her writing Frankenstein.

There is a four page Author‘s Note at the back that talks about her life after the novel, but it doesn‘t go into great detail. It is the fantastic moody illustrations that make this book. I‘ll post a separate blurb of an interior illustrations.

If you are interested in Mary Shelley, I also highly recommend the poetic Mary‘s Monster. #NFNov

So is Hozier like Shelley, or Shelley like Hozier?

I obviously made some great reading choices in October because out of 28 books, over half were 5-star reads. There's a round up on my blog: https://lindypratch.blogspot.com/2019/11/october-reading-round-up.html

Rissreads Wow! That is alot of books! Do you spend alot of time reading? Or do you read fast? I've struggled this month and I'm not really sure why. I haven't struggled to read like this in a couple of years. 2w
Lindy @Rissreads I spend 4 hours a day reading (sometimes more) and I read fast. I count audiobooks, picture books and graphic novels in my totals. Some people are more productive with their spare time. I read. 🤓 2w

I took an #audiowalk to the library to pick up the tagged book. But after a quick browse, I came home with four extra books 😅
