The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline
post image

Poor girls. The world fattens them on the promise of love. How badly they need it, and how little most of them will ever get...Then the dreams are taken away with such violent force; the hand wrenching the buttons of the jeans, nobody looking at the man shouting at his girlfriend on the bus.

"It seemed Doctor Who fandom always carried the whiff of Old Boys Club and in the hierarchy of Who, the girl fans hovered near the bottom. Is this perception correct? It depends on who you talk to and where they fell in that hierarchy...Perception is a tricky thing, but in terms of fandom power, influence, and control, it was primarily a man's world." Hmmm.

"Love and loss," he said, "are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be."

Great start to my #LitsyAtoZ challenge (title that starts with N)! I love Neil Gaiman and Neverwhere was wonderfully fantastical and semi-realistic all at once. I really enjoyed the world and the characters, and I would love to read even more adventures. Really fun!

I loved this book. Lada is such a complex character and the writing conveys her so wonderfully. I also loved how we got to see things from her brother's perspective, and the interesting and complicated web of relationships that results from their friendship with Mehmed. Can't wait to read the next one!!

Totally just made myself a spreadsheet to track my reading habits in the new year. Thanks to @Amanda and @bookriot for the idea!

MARIAN | Ella Lyons
Pickpick

A retelling of the origins of Marian and Robin Hood, this is an engaging novella for sure. Marian is a strong and independent character, and I really loved the story about her meeting and falling in love with Robin, who is a female in this version. Catching hints of other characters who will eventually be important was also nice. Some trigger warnings for sexual assault. Really hoping this is the start of a series!
