Six YEARS! This here is the true beginning of Scandinavian noir.

Imagine being a 9 month pregnant medieval Icelandic woman, OVER IT, and someone goes Haha they can't stay in there forever. OH YEAH, REMEMBER THAT STORY ABOUT VOLSUNG'S MOM. STFU AND GET ME GOAT MILK. Or whatever medieval pregnant ladies craved.

I love Amy Poehler and pretty much expect all the coy filler in celebrity memoirs but this was a miss for me.

Mehso-so

Started a touch slowly, a bit unfortunate in something so short to begin with, but I do love a good stranger coming to a creepy, remote household trope. Nice eerie ending.

Finally read ths quintessential Agatha Christie book! I don't know what to say without spoiling but I was super wrong in every theory. So let me just pop this behind a spoiler tag and put spaces JUST IN CASE

>SPOILER<
I was really bowled over because Wargrave was my favorite character! I look forward to reading again someday and picking out clues as I go along now that I know the ending.

parasolofdoom Jeez I apologize for the half sec I didn't edit in the spoilers thing 🤦‍♀️ 5mo

Birthday: A Novel | Meredith Russo

Started tonight. Very excited, I loved If I Was Your Girl by this author about a trans teenaged girl moving in with her father to get a fresh start at a new school. This tackles M to F identity too, 13 year old Morgan knowing he should truly be a she and not knowing how to tell anyone

Mongrels: A Novel | Stephen Graham Jones

Pickpick

Stephen Graham Jones liked my goodreads review of Mongrels so I guess we're best friends now, right?

This was an awesome book, a classic bildungsroman with a unique hook -- the unnamed narrator is from a family of werewolves and coming into his own transition late. He's dying to experience it but questioning if change will ever come. Amazing story to lose yourself in.

vivastory I've interacted with him a few times on social media. He's wonderful. 5mo
vivastory Also, how is 5mo
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5mo
parasolofdoom @vivastory he is really an awesome person. The Gone World is quite interesting but I haven't progressed far because I'm still nursing a hangover from 5mo

Good Omens | Gaiman, Neal
post image

No matter how many copies I've given away or have permanently "loaned", I seem to always find at LEAST two copies in my home library. It's like my version of the Best of Queen tape. Other books in my library are just morphing into Good Omens after awhile.

catsuit_mango On the other hand I realised my copy is in French while I was sure I had it in English... I need a 'new' original version copy ;) 6mo

Robots vs. Fairies | Dominik Parisien, Navah Wolfe

May reads! Standouts were the Cobain biography, Tenth of December, Bloodchild, and Robots vs Fairies (a lot of short stories for me this month). Also loved It Ended Badly, by the author of Get Well Soon. Both recommended for fans of tongue in cheek history books
