Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie
Rate this book
Clear rating
Ancillary Sword was easier for me to follow than the first book because I’m already familiar with the mind-bending concepts of this world. That’s not to say it’s actually easy though. I really had to concentrate as I was reading, and it’s a tricky ma ...more

Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
Alias Grace
by Margaret Atwood (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
In this novel, Atwood has created an incredibly rich and detailed world. She has clearly done tons of research, but it doesn’t read like a big exposition dump (‘Look how much I know about this time!’); instead the research does just what it’s suppose ...more

Homesick for Another World by Ottessa Moshfegh
Rate this book
Clear rating
I wouldn’t recommend this collection. While other people might find dark humour in it, I thought it was just dark, and I didn’t find it very enjoyable to read. In fact, I felt dirty after reading it. In Homesick for Another World Moshfegh manages to ...more

Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is an impressive collection. At times the stories can merge into each other because their atmospheres and settings are pretty similar, but it’s well worth a read for that quiet, creeping feeling that Shirley Jackson is so skilled at creating.

Fen by Daisy Johnson
Fen
by Daisy Johnson (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
I think Fen is a confident debut from a writer who can clearly write very well. However, I never entirely forgot that it was a debut, and sometimes Johnson makes her world so distant and strange that I couldn’t quite get a grasp on it.

City of the Beasts by Isabel Allende
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was an experiment in rereading something I loved as a child, and I'd say it was semi-successful. City of the Beasts is an interesting read. It has a few problems, but there are some good characters, some great moments of adventure/discovery and ...more
