Maryann reviews "The Shaman of Heaven and Hell" by Chris Kim:

"Kim spins a fasciamting tale out of Korean myths, spirits, and demons... the worldbuilding and descriptions were done very well - full of creative ideas and a suspenseful atmosphere. I would love to see what Kim writes next."


4th read so far this year! I'm quite impressed that I'm finding the time...
Anyways, as with the others, A Million Little Pieces - James Frey was thoroughly enjoyable!

Next up is a new book, bought solely on the strength of a 'Staff Recommends' card in Waterstones


Blake Crouch

An interesting approach to the multiverse, but hampered by a revenge plot I just couldn't get into. (I imagined the main character as Tom Jayne's method actor from Arrested Development.) The few female characters repeatedly meet a gratuitous end.

Talk to the boat next door.

CM Nitish releases the book 'Loktantra Ke Peharua' based on the collection of articles and speeches of Rajya Sabha MP Bashistha Narayan Singh.

"Tobacco Merchant" (2014)
Maurice Duke and Daniel P. Jordan

FUNNY, SAD, SILLY, wise novel about the end of a long relationship and what comes after that. Strong characterizations and a distinctive voice take this a level or two above the ordinary. B PLUS

How little we know of ourselves at any moment how distinctly human that is. There is such little grace given to the perfect messiness of desire.
You can be a stranger to yourself: you almost certainly will be, at some point or another. It is inevitable, as inevitable as the moment of rupture that sends you hurtling toward the self you were always going to be.

I am inordinately proud of the fact that I hung a shelf. All by myself. Only mangling the drywall a little bit.

I needed the shelf because I have more books than shelf space.

To celebrate hanging this shelf, I think Ill buy even more books

Spent my birthday tokens. One about death, one about 18th century menswear. Very me!

I did have my usual qualms - will they take up too much space Should I buy something more sensible WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK But I'm trying to get over the last of those questions as it's been ringing round my head for years, and lockdown taught me the answer is IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THEY THINK. So I got my books on men and morbid art.

"Nightshade Emporium by Hayden Thorne:

"The characters are the authors take on Greek mythology, but with different names. I enjoyed seeing how this immortal family interacted with mortals firsthand, and earned a new appreciation for what they go through in life and death. 4 stars."
