What a wonderfully strange collection of short stories set in a city-state skyscraper of immense proportions in Korea. It's a bit sci-fi with robots, a bit absurdism with dog actors and elephants reaching nirvana, & a bit dystopian with gov ineptitude and corruption centered around things as absurd as elevator routes. I absolutely loved it & managed to read it in only a handful of days despite being in a terrible reading slump.

I had a tie for the month of February, the tagged novel and How High We Go In The Dark. I chose The Seven Spears because it was fun and I'd read it again.

The House of Rust: A Novel | Khadija Abdalla Bajaber

1. Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neale Thurston.

2. This is hard! I don't know if the tagged book has a storm in it, but the father of the mc is lost at sea, so I'm counting it. Other candidates include Storms of my grandchildren by James Hansen and Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala if m in the mood for sad memoir.
3. Any, but especially storms when I'm cozy & dry inside.

This is a staggering, challenging, beautiful book and one of the best I‘ve read in a long time. Seeking to rescue her father, Aisha risks the sea with little skill and no knowledge of the dangers. Guided by a cat, she faces three monsters. On her return she must choose the life others want for her, or to seek the promised House of Rust.

“Her destiny stretched before her. And eager, and afraid, and whole of heart, she went to meet it.”

A collection of 3 interesting short stories, one of which is being followed up with a series of novels, which I will look out for.

#October #20in4 #Readathon Check-In: 6 hours.

A BIT short of 20 hours, right? 😁
Well, for me, the #20in4 #readathons are a nudge to me to make more time for reading as on any usual workday - on a 'normal' day? 30 mins daily, if I'm lucky... 🙄
So, 6 hours aren't THAT bad, if you think about it... 😉

Another book finished for #Scarathlon2022 and one I specifically chose for #Necronomathon.

In this final installment of the Rupert Wong series, the Malaysian cannibal chef and friends go on a road trip in the US to prevent the end of the world. Gods, monsters and other strange creatures (including an embodiment of the Internet) show up everywhere.
