It's a classic for a reason & a lot different than what I expected! Riveting, cleverly-constructed Gothic fiction that also works as a mystery. Love the forms of text incorporated into the narrative. Underlying it are issues percolating around womanhood, female sexuality, & fear of Others. One of those interesting novels that is a compelling read despite the author's iffy politics (that was in view in full force in The Lair of the White Worm).
Yesterday I had a little time to myself. My rehearsal ended early and I needed to get lunch before heading home. I may have tripped and fallen into BN on the way to lunch and ended up with this #bookhaul. Well Met was so fun I needed my own copy, and Jeaniene Frost comes recommended by Ilona Andrews, who have never led me astray before. Not sure when I‘ll get to them...
Both are TBR. Here's the description of Amatka from an online article:
"The eponymous city...is one of four colonies, a wintry, agricultural commune that grows fungus for sustenance. No one talks about the fifth colony, the one that was lost so long ago.."
I was immediately intrigued by Rowe's "Enter, Night" when I heard it described as a Canadian 'Salems Lot. #ghosttown #MOvember @Cinfhen
I'm not going to feel guilty about folding the laundry slowly. It gave me an excuse to keep listening.
I'm thinking I should start reading the book though because I'm at a section that feels a little rambly (Lucy at Whitby and her proposals.) I'm having trouble focusing on the audiobook. @Cinfhen @batsy @erzascarletbookgasm
I have started a re-read before the new book comes out. I am doing a slow re-read with The Cincy Underground Facebook group, which suits me at the minute timeline wise, though I may jump ship to the Goodreads read along with Kim at some point!
It‘s been ages since I read these, and I had forgotten a lot! But I love Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks, and I can‘t wait to see more of Al. I never warmed to Trent or Nick though, Rach has terrible taste in men!
