Summer: A Novel | Edith Wharton

I finished the chapters for this week early this morning and couldn‘t stop. I had an idea where the story was going, and I just wanted to get through the rest of it and know for sure. The more of Wharton‘s writing I read, the more I decide I appreciate her shorter works more. I really enjoyed the description in this one even as I watched the events unfolding with foreboding.

I‘m halfway through the book and caught up for tomorrow‘s discussion. A lot happened in these chapters, and I‘m curious to see what happens next. Having read a few other Wharton novels, I‘m also worried about what will happen next.

LitStephanie With Wharton, it will likely not be happy. 1mo
Daisey @LitStephanie Exactly, that's what I keep telling myself. This is most likely not going to end well . . . 1mo

The House of the Vampire | George Sylvester Viereck

I somewhat enjoyed this tale of a vampire who feeds on artistic inspiration and thoughts rather than blood. Some fun melodramatic, gothic, and bisexual vibes, but unfortunately also some racism and sexism. Published in 1907, and if I'd read the author's wiki before reading the book, I wouldn't have read it, since Viereck later became a Nazi propagandist. 🤮

I found The Haunted House disappointing, but I'd check out some of the collaborators' stories another time (which weren't included in Three Ghost Stories). The Trial for Murder was fine, but didn't hook me. The Signal-Man, which I've read before, was enjoyable - there's a reason it's the most famous of the three 😂 Read on #SerialReader @SerialReader

Very short and mildly interesting for literary history reasons. I enjoyed some of it, but the ending was dull and abrupt. Overall, it was nice to read this once, especially in a month where I'm reading a lot of vampire fiction, but I'd not read it again. #Scarathlon #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash #Pointsathon #BookSpinBingo #SerialReader @StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES @SerialReader

I‘m reading this on #SerialReader, so there‘s no actual cover, but this is the first page. It‘s been maaannnyyy years since I‘ve read this… so it doesn‘t really feel like a re-read.

julieclair @sprainedbrain I had never heard of Serial Reader until someone mentioned it here on Litsy. I love it! #BlameItOnLitsy in a positive way. 👍😀 2mo

The Railway Children | Edith Nesbit

This classic certainly had me reaching for a few tissues.😭The mother‘s devotion to her family, the sweet sibling bonds, the overwhelming kindness and unconditional love—touched my heart. Living in today‘s crazy world, I‘m always up for a happy ending. And since Edith Nesbit had quite a tumultuous family life, I guess these happy endings made her feel better too.
