Dracula | Bram Stoker

I finished reading Dracula today. Overall, I found it to be a wonderful book. Only slightly repetitive in a few chapters with events with Lucy early on, but I loved it! A great book to finish on Halloween! 🧛‍♂️🎃

paulfrankspencer Used to be my #1. It just always used to bother me how oblivious the protagonists seemed at times. Otherwise, basically perfect. 2w

“Fiction is then sort of a verbal Adam molded from the primordial dust in the Author‘s image and infused by the Author with the breath of life” A.M. Manguel theorizes that fictional characters are immortalized for us and our our friends. This book is not about just monsters (it‘s a quote from Lewis Carroll) but a series of ideas of how Manguel sees these characters and how we might also. I love his books that i‘ve read and loved this book as well

I‘m a big fan of the 13 Treasures trilogy and so it‘s not really a surprise that I loved this prequel too. My favorite character was Turpin she was just so delightfully mischievous. I feel like the plot was thought out really well without spoiling the next book, but i can‘t say exactly what I mean without spoilers myself. I love the way Michelle Harrison tells stories and wouldn‘t mind seeing another adventure with these characters in the future.

Dante, the Divine Comedy: Hell | (Dorothy Leigh), . Sayers

Pickpick

I started reading this book at the end of February and only recently finished it as I kept reading other books in between. This is a work that I would have liked to discussed in a class setting even having read the entirety of the notes. Within a few stanzas at any given time Dante alludes to Roman myth, Biblical stories, and Italian politics/people of his own time. The Inferno was by far the most interesting for me.

Nebklvr I liked Inferno the best too 4w

One of the cool elements about this book is that the heroine, Lydia, likes to read gothic fiction like The Monk and Mathilda, and yet she somehow becomes entangled in a story of her own just like the same kind of books she reads about: shocking, dramatic, uncanny. I loved the meta idea entwined. This book reads more like a gothic book with a Regency Austen romance blended in more than an outright witch story. Another pick.

Read this graphic novel story collection last night with the dim glow of amber fairy lights, the candle, and just my booklight. Some great stories, but I think my favorite was “His Face All Red”. Quick and spooky pick for Halloween.

esurient Oh gosh I had loved this one. I need to pick up more of her works. 4w
Palimpsest @esurient This was my first time reading a book by Emily Carroll, but I‘ll definitely be looking for others. I picked it up because it was on display at my library. So glad I did! 4w
esurient I found her early webcomics first and had been just amazed. Her art for 'The Prince and the Sea' was particularly well-suited for the webview medium -- ditto with that one scene in 'His Face...', climbing down. 4w
esurient ...er, as the character was climbing, I-the-reader was scrolling, and it gave an excellent seat-of-your-pants thrill. 4w

The Master and Margarita | Mikhail Bulgakov

Hello friends! I‘ve been wanting to read The Master and Margarita for awhile and had picked this version up at a Half Price for a few dollars. However, I would like to read the best possible English translation. I also want to read the complete version. I like detail, but also would like it to read as close to the original as possible. Internet searches on Reddit have been helpful, but I wanted to ask the Litsy community, which version is best?

Palimpsest Hey friends, still want a recommendation on what is the best complete English translation? Thank you! (edited) 1mo

How to Do Nothing | Jenny Odell
post image
Pickpick

My issue with this book is that perhaps the people who will pick it up and read it are already conscious of the harm in over-productivity. It has some great ideas about where we choose to focus our attention. On social media sites and if so which ones are best for us? I loved the thoughts on bioregionalism and getting involved in our own communities. I already ask my son all the time to stop and listen to what he hears around him, but this book

Palimpsest Has a lot of valid points and suggestions as to how we view the world. I didn‘t care for the chapter on communes, but understand its inclusion and how it doesn‘t work to run away from the world, but to be in balance with it. it would have been good for me to read in one or two sittings instead of the small snippets I read it in. It didn‘t change me as much as remind me of what I love about being in nature and paying attention to what counts. 1mo
Andrea4 I was just talking today with someone about how our culture is so "production" focused to the exclusion of basic health (mental, physical, and spiritual) and also focuses on instant results/gratifaction etc rather than putting any long term thought into actions. 1mo
Palimpsest @Andrea4 absolutely. Jenny Odell addresses the issue of smartphones and e-mail and constantly being available for work. Also, with the attention economy and influencers how we are unable to focus on any one thing or soon forget about it, seeking the gratification of “likes”. This book doesn‘t completely pull out, but suggests where we could focus our attentions to have better lives and more meaningful relationships within our communities. 1mo

Andrea4 @Palimpsest omgosh, the lack of focus I swear is bleeding into actual human relationships. As someone out in dating world, there's a pressure to constantly be entertaining so one doesn't lose interest (in like 1 week!!!) 1mo

I liked Small Spaces so much that I got the sequel, Dead Voices, from the library and I liked it even better than the first one. This time Ollie and two friends go on a skiing trip over winter break. The hotel, they are told, used to be a school, but they weren‘t filled in on some backstory of the creepy happenings until they are snowed in and it‘s too late to leave. It‘s up to Ollie and her friends to solve the mystery. Freaky & fun!

Ollie and her classmates visit a local farm on a school trip where the fun day quickly evolves into a nightmare. This book is intended for young readers, but it was a fun, creepy read perfect for this time of year. I also liked that Ollie takes clues about their predicament in the mist from an old book! Really enjoyed this one.

If you love books about books like I do then this book is a must. The feel of the paper alone will make a book-lover giddy. Incredibly well researched this book is divided into four sections discussing the page and how paper was produced, the text from writing to typesetting, illustrations from illuminations to woodcuts and lithographs, to the form and why books are the size and shape they are. Illustrations throughout and labels for book parts ♥️

House on Mango Street | Sandra Cisneros

I love the prose in this series of vignettes that makes every scene so palpable. We hear a voice of Esperanza who in turn is speaking for every other voice in her neighborhood, but mostly women, many of whom seem to have their voices elided either because of being female or a language barrier. This book in parts is both serious, joyous, and funny and I think everyone can recognize themselves in how awkward coming of age can be. Wonderful book.

Ubookquitous One of my favorites- I love Cisneros - especially her poetry. He prose is very poetic as well. 2mo

Another non-fiction that caught my eye at the library thanks to the famous phrase. This book is not about Byron, however, but about the fathers of Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, and James Joyce and how they played a part in the works of their sons. I enjoyed this quick book and it makes me interested to read more about the authors themselves and more of their works than I already have read.

I took this out of my library, but now that I‘ve read it I feel this is a book I want to own and slot next to my other reference books, yet it‘s so much more than just a reference book for me. Parts were laugh out loud funny and informative without being condescending. It covers grammar, but also common spelling errors and confusables. Five stars for this one. ❤️

Nice light end of summer read about the Waverley family who have always possessed strange gifts. I enjoyed the relationship between sisters, Claire & Sydney who try to connect for the first time after Sydney chooses to return to her hometown to escape a dark part of her life. I liked quirky characters, esp. Evanelle and the apple tree. I wasn‘t as interested in the old frenemies like Emma. I‘m not going to read the sequel as it is 9 years later.

All seven stories within this book are in the public domain, but this collection has enriching illustrations by Bill Bragg and cool gothic endpapers. I completely enjoyed sampling these authors‘ Victorian ghost stories which left me with just enough feeling of the unsettled and uncanny with none of the modern demonic or slasher horror. If you, like me, like the old-fashioned things that go-bump-in-the-night light scare then this is for you, too.

Who isn‘t familiar with Jekyll & Hyde and the images conjured up by each name? One represents a likable, upstanding citizen the other a monstrous persona. This novella is terrifying when one realizes the evil essence wasn‘t just brought about by an alchemical reaction, but was a part of him that he wanted to indulge. I like the way every person who encounters Hyde is struck by intense fear as though it isn‘t human, but something wildly different.

This book had been on my tbr list for years. I loved the first portion about the storage of scrolls, codices, chained books, books in presses and on rotating lecterns. The illustrations are a great addition to this book. I was less interested in the engineering of bookstacks in more modern times as it is quite technical, but overall found this book informative and interesting. Do read the appendix which makes me want to re-arrange my own books!

“Loafe with me on the grass...loose the stop from your throat.” I finally got around to reading this poetry collection and I‘m happy I did. It feels much more contemporary and is more sexual and physical than I expected. I loved the mix of the natural world and then the people who inhabit it. It‘s clear how different this body of work is from other poets of the time and is worthy of its praise.

Since I don‘t know when or if I‘ll get the chance to visit Shakespeare and Company this book is the next best thing! There is a section at the beginning highlighting Sylvia Beach, but the book centers on the new shop of the same name owned by George Whitman, his early travels (fascinating) the start of his bookstore in the 1950s and his vision of being a frère lampier. This is the history of the poets & writers who frequented the shop. Love this!

Winner of the Edgar award, this cozy mystery is about Milo, twelve-year-old, who is pulled into the secretive affairs of the guests of his parents‘ hotel over Christmas break.

Stories are told throughout which unveil clues on all accounts. A fun read!

This book takes place during the Meiji timeline into modern society and not that many decades after Japan had opened its boarders to Westerners. It looks at these generational differences though the college student and the man he calls Sensei. The story is divided into three sections. First from the point of view of the young narrator and his country parents and the 3rd from the Sensei. Themes of change, isolation, and inaction. Enjoyed this one.

I‘ve shared this page because it was one of my qualms with this book in suggesting she felt a certain way or that literature resonated with her a certain way that she might have read. I also prefer texts to be linear. I enjoyed reading about the books Mary read pertaining to her interests or where she traveled. This book assumes the reader knows the basics of her life, but fills it in with richer research. My sympathies lie with what she endured.

This is the first horror book (or shall I say “terror” after visiting Radcliffe‘s ideas of what separates the two) that I have ever read. I did find some scenes disturbing as they are supposed to be psychologically, and as silly as it sounds only read it during the day. Hey, I‘m a highly sensitive person with strong beliefs about the spiritual world. It was no We Have Always..., but an intriguing read that I‘m glad I bolstered my nerves against.

I am not mentally prepared to do justice to this book in a true review at this time, but I am too excited about how much I loved this little book not to share my enthusiasm. I can see why this is considered Jackson‘s masterpiece, it‘s brilliant. I loved looking at this world through the eyes of Merricat, one of the most interesting characters I‘ve seen in a long time.

This book is the story of Collingwood Ingram; a man who started off as an ornithologist and through his travels became enamored with the Japanese Cherries. The book talks about his eccentric family, his time spent in Japan and how he became a keeper of cherries eventually returning the Taihaku cherry to a country that almost let it go extinct. Also talks of history of Edo through Pacific War and what the cherry symbolized at different times.

This was my first experience reading a collection by Oliver. I feel that in order to do a poem justice it really should be read a few times. I didn‘t break each poem down, but I could feel the coalescence of nature, stillness, a quiet moment. With any collection I enjoyed some poems more than others. One of my favorites was “I happened to be Standing.” I will definitely be returning to Oliver‘s poetry again.

I‘m a bit torn over the Mary Shelley biography I‘ve been reading, In Search of Mary Shelley. There seems to be a bit of supposition to the point of overreaching to form a connection in how Mary viewed herself in the world. Also, I can tell the author despises Percy Shelley. I do like a lot of the other info, but my husband surprised me with this biography which includes Mary Wollstonecraft as well. Now I‘ll compare. Cake was a Mother‘s Day treat!

I should get into the habit of reviewing books right away or jotting down things I want to say because I finished this Thursday and forgot all the lovely things I wanted to say already.

Though written for teens, a few parts made be get giddy with delight in a “yes!”
