Nowhere Else I Want to Be by Carol D. Marsh

One of the great things about books is getting to live through experiences completely removed from your own. This was a random library pick up, and it was certainly something very different.

The author started and lived in/worked in a house/program i

Once again, I fell for the pull quote. This time it was Ellen Kushner who got me.

And actually, this started out well enough. The second medieval fantasy in a row (completely by accident), which was an interesting enough setting to intrigue me. And it

This was a really fast read, but well-written, and a brutal truth. The voice felt very 90s to me - and I mean that in the best way possible. Ariel Gore or Bee Lavender...someone who wrote for Bitch, back in the day.

Once upon a time at some point about 20 years ago, I owned both Rusalka and Chernevog. I didn't know there was a third book. At some point in the last year I discovered its existence, and one night, with the questionable assistance of bourbon, I orde ...more

I picked this up on a whim. I like travel books, I like arctic books, sure!

This book was not the lighthearted trip I was expecting. The writing is evocative. Remember being a teenager, and being in a situation that didn't seem quite right? And when y

I have not been having a good run of books.

On the surface, this sounds like it's just up my alley- dystopian, set in Minnesota, Native characters. But I should've run away when I realized this was *shudder* literary science fiction. I don't understa

After a run of books that were a slog, I was pretty glad to get a Toby Daye. That's always a good time, although this was maybe not my favorite. But, hey, there have been 11 books, and it's still good. Some backstory, too, which is cool. Also a novel ...more

I picked this up because it had a pullquote from Ursula K Leguin, and South American sci-fi sounded intriguing.

Yeah, this wasn't for me. It felt like a fantastic-ish retelling of the coming of the Europeans to South America, with a bit of the narrat
