Saving Agnes: A Novel | Rachel Cusk

"I always believed there would be a point where I would definitely know if I was happy - when I would become myself, if you see what I mean, instead of just impersonating what I thought I should be. And now I feel as if I've suddenly woken up and things have gone by without me seeing them."

I just adore Rachel Cusk's use of language.

The Mesmerist | Barbara Ewing

I got more into this book as it went along. I liked the characters, I just didn‘t like some aspects of Ewing‘s writing style. It got a bit over the top at the end. But it was an interesting portrayal of how precarious life could be for many people in Victorian London and I enjoyed reading the rise and fall and movements of the Misses Preston and their family.
6/10

Wow, this book is incredible. It‘s long, but also so interesting. I didn‘t know about Sor Juana de la Cruz before reading this book and she is now one of my hero‘s. What an incredible women in history. I also wasn‘t much on poetry before reading this book, but it taught me to read poetry you need to slow down and take it in. There were interesting, scary, disturbing, inspiring moments in this book. It really makes you think, ponder and reflect.

“I would hate to have to choose, but I think I‘d rather have travelling than sex.”

If that‘s not a captivating first line I don‘t know what is 😆 I‘ve had this book on my shelf for almost ten years🤭 something finally drew me to it yesterday and I‘m pleasantly surprised! A quirky and fun style of writing, pirates, an isolated island, volcanos, and love - I think I‘m in for another good read 👌🏻

I have waited for this book for a long time, but it has definitely been worth it. Absolutely marvellous so far, and I don‘t really want it to end. #emilystjohnmandel #theglasshotel #fiction book #books #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookcommunity #literaryfiction #contemporaryfiction #newyork #vancouver #britishcolumbia #canada #modernfiction #booklove #bookish #booknerd #bookporn #jamesreads
