The Poe Shadow | Matthew Pearl

Bailed on this one not even 100 pages in—is it just me, or is it unnecessarily confusing?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Like all Agatha Christie novels I‘ve read before, this was quite the ride! It kept me guessing until the very end, and shocked me more than once. Totally recommend!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love this! Larson is so good at what he does; both books I‘ve read by him are well-researched and written in such a way that I almost forget it‘s true events.

Brigid of Kildare: A Novel | Heather Terrell

#redroseseptember #hitthenorth I think this qualifies as north, right?

Cinfhen Ha!! 2mo
arlenefinnigan I loved this. I heard an interview with Neil Gaiman where he said the only bad review he'd seen of it what someone saying "there's no original stories here, it's all just old Norse myths!" "well..... I thought I'd made that clear in the title.... It's like buying a pizza and complaining 'this is just dough with tomato and cheese on!'" 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Maybe it‘s just because I read the graphic novel, but I found this to be kind of lackluster. It seemed to pass way too fast, with a time skip every couple of pages, and the mystery wasn‘t the most interesting. I did like Harper‘s unique ability, though.

Overall, I think this either didn‘t translate well to a graphic novel form, or wasn‘t that great to begin with.
