Haunting, Haunted, Sad and Diverse – In Case I Go by Angie Abdou A book that can't decide between horror and historical, and that's a good thing

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★☆  4 stars In Case I Go caught my eye instantly. The blurb makes you feel like it’s a book struggling with its identity – should I be a horror? A historical novel? Just a contemporary with magical realism? AND I LOVE THIS. Mixtures between genres make the best stories! If you’ve…

September Stats Fever! And Sunday post #26

Ah, September… The beginning of my favorite season. However much I love autumn, I must say, September has been tough. Basically, think of a fire-breathing dragon that’s beautiful, and wild, and… very deadly: (Yup. That there is September, and that poor bastard at the bottom is basically me) I’ve had so many visitors, so many parties, so many social events…

Sunday post #24

So this past week? Let us try to solve this as a mathematical problem (*gasp!* don’t run away yet.) Given: First of all, every day there is work to do till 8.30. Secondly, there is roughly a metric ton of fatigue. Thirdly, I think time has shrunk? (Must be some weird quantum effect in action.) Problem: How much reading will the…

Whoops… I didn’t like Maya Angelou’s most famous work. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★☆☆  3 stars So this is awkward. You start a book that everyone knows so very well. The book is also written on this immensely important topic – rather, several of them. And as you trawl and trawl through it, you only come to realize that it’s murdering you with how uninteresting…

I Feel Bad About Not Liking This One, But… The Golden House by Salman Rushdie

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★✬☆☆  2.5 stars Well… You never feel great when you are about to give a not-so-glowing review to a really well known, acclaimed writer’s work. But the review’s gotta be honest. So honest it will be. In fact, I’ve recently written a post about how to write a review for a book…

Discussion, WHAT DO???

Oops, I Don’t Like A Famous Book WHUT DO???

So I’m starting a new meme. Again. But this one’s totally awesome! (They’re all totally awesome. I didn’t say that.) It’s going to be dedicated to all those bookish problems and their solutions! It’s also all about discussion posts as well, but I wanted to make a separate column for this. Hope you enjoy the WHAT DO??? meme! And today we’re…

What If Men And Women Could Bear Children Equally? The Growing Season by Helen Sedgwick

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars I don’t think there’s a book by Helen I could hate. Maybe if she wrote it backwards with her left foot, while riding on a gray mare, also backwards over muddy marshes..? Yet, still. I think I’d love it too. There’s just something about Helen’s style and topics that always appeals…

State of the ARC

State of the ARC #1 Introducing new meme!

I’ve been wanting to get started with this meme for a few months now, but didn’t have the time to finish the idea up. However, I have been walking around laughing like a little nerd about the name I came up with though – State of the ARC! How ingenious, Evelina. But anyway! State of the ARC is meant to be a meme…
