Yes. I'm getting Wilder Girls energy from this book.

She couldn't remember the first book she had eaten.


This book is about so many things and yet manages to be about absolutely nothing... I felt this frustration from start to finish, because looking at this structually, everything should have come together and paid off in a way that felt good, but instead to me it was just incredibly flimsy.

I loved so many aspects - the book-eating, the genius connection to the Agatha Christie book, that eerie ending, and especially Jane's battle with her

I will do HORRIDble things to get my hands on an early copy of this book (and yes I've made that HORRIDble joke before and I'm sorry if you abHORRID but I couldn't help it, I still find it HORRIDbly funny).

(For real, though, the blurb alone tells me this could end up being my favorite Katrina Leno yet... and that is saying a LOT! Also, HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
