Here I am with the next installment of the sugar challenge! I’d wanted to arrange things so that all my Russian reading would kind of coincide — because I will in fact be reviewing House of Special Purpose on the heels of my character discussion from Sunday — but I already had this book from the library and therefore things are going to be less thematic than I would like. However, I am proud to report that it’s finally not an abysmal disappointment and I have some nice things to say at last!
Week nine, A book by a female author.
I had initially considered this book for several different locations on the challenge — including thriller, classic romance, and short stories, as I found out more about it — but in all honesty I couldn’t be happier about keeping it where I initially put it in my first iteration of the challenge. Because with it being “book by a female author,” I really want to focus on the author. Without further ado, I give you . . . some of the most fundamentally brainscamming short stories I’ve ever read from a truly mad mind.
