Cursed Bunny | Bora Chung
post image
Pickpick

I can see why Cursed Bunny is up for a lot of rewards. Head and The Embodiment (the first two stories) were my favorites. I thought the first two stories were setting the tone for the rest of the book, but the other stories included sci-fi and fantasy; so it‘s not just for horror fans. There is a nod to the societal treatment of women in almost every story, so that made it very interesting to discuss with my book club.

Mehso-so

This was my first “Sherlock” book. Do not rely on me to solve any crimes 😬. I gave it a so-so because I‘m not a huge mystery fan.

#wintergames #USS #UglySweaterSquad
I have little detective skills, but I am proud of my point check in number: 13,758! 🥳

dabbe When I taught SH to my students, I discovered that a big trait in a detective story is that we are NOT supposed to be able to solve the crime; that's why the detective is so brilliant and usually odd. We're just the Joe Schmoes sitting on the couch, eating potato chips while the detective tells us how he easily solved the crime. And yes, we usually feel stupid afterwards. And #woohoo for your points! 💙❄️💙 2mo
AnnR Way to go! 👍📚🎉 2mo

I‘m glad I read the book before looking at Goodread reviews, I may have passed on it.

I actually like the MC, and yes some of the women characters are a bit on the screechy side lol (so I can understand some of the negative reviews) but it did not stop me from liking the book.

#Scarathlon is keeping me spooky.

3. The Ballad of Black Tom (excellent, I love LaValle‘s storytelling)
4. Octavia Butler‘s BloodChild & Other Short Stories 😍
5. Shirley (the movie about Shirley Jackson, so good)
6. AHS Delicate, I‘m enjoying Kim K!

I loved the idea of the hotel, but I was expecting more time travel. This story focuses more on action and mystery. I still recommend this book, and will read more from the author.

Radiance: A Novel | Catherynne M. Valente
Mehso-so

This book was a struggle, so close to DNF. One chapter would totally excite and captivate me, and then the storyline would switch topics, discarding what interested me.

It‘s a fun mix of sci-fi and old Hollywood but by the end I was just straight up confused 🤣

Fun and scary! I admit I am easily scared 🙃 so take that into consideration.

I would describe it as a horror mystery ghost story with a new twist. I figured a couple of things out early on, but not everything, so that kept me interested.

The Shirley Jackson inspo vibes are high. 👍🏾

Just After Sunset | Stephen King
Pickpick

Yay, finished Just After Sunset, missed the #losersclub date by quite a bit 🤣. I‘m not a big short story fan, but this is The King, so I enjoyed it. My absolute favorite was N. It was wonderfully, stressful because I could see myself easily slipping down that rabbit hole. In the author‘s note he mentioned “The Great God Pan” as inspo. This is a book I recently heard about but decided not to add to my TBR. Of course now I have to read it.

5feet.of.fury I had read that with #losersclub and totally forgot about N being inspired by The Great God Pan, which I have also not read, but read a reimagining of 12mo
Reggie Is N the one about the ocd people trying to keep out inter dimensional monsters with their repetitive rituals? Cause I loved that one. 12mo
NikkiM5 @Reggie yup, that‘s N. I still think about it 🤣 12mo
NikkiM5 @5feet.of.fury oh wow These Fleeting Shadows sound really good. And it would cover my book about inheritance for the 52 Book Club. Thank you! 12mo
