I liked it, but did not love it as much as I thought I would. I have never seen the movie so I‘m not comparing it. 🤔
The writing is beautiful, Capote does have a way with words.

This short story has been on my Kindle for ages and I finally read it. Not sure how to describe it - mystery, historical, fantasy, clockwork, steampunk? I liked the setting and characters, so someday I might read the rest of the series.

I‘m so out of practice of going into the office regularly that I actually forgot to pack my current book, but luckily I‘m never really without one with my phone. Starting my 4th read from @Karisa‘s #NewYearWhoDis list on my commute home and already into after the first paragraph. 😂

Also, I owe you some reviews, girl! I will say I have really liked to LOVED the 3 that I have already read, so your list is a hit. 💕

Karisa I feel the same way about your list! I just started Office if Historical Corrections and it is soooo good! I don‘t think I would have picked it up otherwise because I usually am not drawn to short stories. We are so in sync with our book picks! Love it! 11h
monalyisha I love the vibes/connection! Happy this match worked out so well! ✨ 11h

Thankful to reading a review here. Quite odd story but a perfect weekend kindle read.

Six-Gun Snow White | Catherynne M. Valente

Mehso-so

Snow White is the daughter of a Nevada oil man and a Crow woman named Gun That Sings. And with a ruby encrusted gun named Rose Red, she is determined to find her place in the wild West.

I read this 6 years ago, and I‘m glad I tried the audiobook. The narration was absolutely perfect, melding the western with the magical. The story is a fun & fierce retelling, but with an abrupt ending & a level of racism that just felt heavy handed. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

Wow. For such a short book, there was a lot packed inside. The writing was crisp, insightful, and packed a punch. Brown now a must-buy based on this one. Look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

AkashaVampie The cover looks amazing 2d

I will not be distracted by Saturday book mail, I will not be distracted by Saturday book mail, I will no—

The Girl in the Tower actually completes my collection of the hardcover editions of Arden‘s trilogy (one of my favorites ever). The other two are new to me and may in fact have the power to distract me. We‘ll have to see. 🤷‍♀️😂

GondorGirl I just picked up a copy of Among Thieves, as well. It sounds so good! 2d

“The wilderness was not known for letting the foolish return.”

It speaks volumes that I‘m low key hoping Dex doesn‘t. But this is Becky Chambers, so I guess they‘ll be fine and will survive to get a bunch more side eye from me.

shanaqui Uhoh, not a fan of Dex? XD 3d
imyril @shanaqui not at all; and the story repeatedly rewards them for acting like an asshole, so I‘ve finally found a Chambers story that set my teeth on edge in spite of all the positive world building. Hohum. Lots to like, but finding it hard to like! 1d
