I read Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Emma, and Northanger Abbey for the very first time this year. Here's what I thought about each entry into the Jane Austen canon!
This summer I read CL Polk's Witchmark, Tamsyn Muir's Gideon The Ninth, and Lindsay Ellis' Axiom's End. Here are my first impressions!
There is one particular short story in The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis that I’ve adored since the very first time I read it, called Cockroaches in Autumn.
This month's #DrinkTeaReadBooks: Silvia Moreno Garcia's Gods of Jade and Shadow, the first three Witcher books, I finally read Frank Herbert's Dune, amongst several others! And a shout-out to Book Rant Podcast for being awesome.
Split Tooth, Lettres en forêt urbaine, All Systems Red, Les brutes et la punaise, and more: there have been so many good books read this year!
This sequel continues the theme of found family from the first book, and is bursting at the seams with several themes common to a lot of disabled, queer, and trans experiences: dysphoria, dissociation and depersonalization, healing from traumatic childhoods, gender fluidity, to name just a few.
