"Where does one live when one fits nowhere but in fiction and insanity? Even today
that's what we call our in-betweens: insane.
We give them lithium and bus passes and hope they melt into the crowd."

From "Postulation on the Violent Works of the Marquis de Sade" by Elizabeth Bachinsky

I won an arc! I got the package from Hachette today and was happily surprised. This one sounds strange, funny, and queer which means it should be right up my alley.

"We must all get away from the false commercial standards of "beauty" imposed on us by movie moguls and advertising firms, because the youth/beauty hang-up sets us against one another in a frenzied competition for attention, and leads in the end to an obsession with self which is death to real affection or real sensual love."

So I almost never read thrillers. The only one I remember reading that I really loved was My Sister, the Serial Killer. I decided to give this one a try because of the gentrification premise. I think all the information on gentrification was very interesting and a great part of the book. The thriller aspect was what lost me. The action, gore, and violence just wasn't for me. I think I'll check out her romances instead.

This book was exactly what I needed. A regency romance that was laugh out loud funny and had enough adventure to keep it interesting. I'll definitely be checking out more of Georgette Heyer's work.

I finally finished this after reading of and on through the year. It's hard to review because of the wide range of writings. I found some great authors through this but there were also many pieces that were mediocre at best.

"Each character poses for the camera and therefore the viewer. There's an awareness that she will be looked at, that she is styled as the object of male desire. However, Sherman challenges our expectations by morphing from character to character, revealing the artifice of on-screen femininity. Not one 'version' is real; they are all constructs"

I devoured this book! It was so immersive, which has been rare for me with my short attention span lately. The story was suspenseful, creepy, and at times grotesque, but the imagery was beautiful and there was a deeper meaning/metaphor that made it all the better.

Getting close to finishing the spring issue of The Paris Review. I ventured outside in my mask to get a boba tea (Blueberry Aloe Vera Chia Seed - so good!). This pandemic has made my social anxiety even worse. It's so rare that I interact with strangers now, I'm out of practice.
