Evidence Of The Affair - Taylor Jenkins Reid

 

This was my first time reading a story of letters, and I loved it!
What a clever way to tell a story, and done so incredibly well. I believed in all of these people and the feelings they held. It really takes you on a roller coaster ride!
For such a small story it has a huge impact!
I definitely want to read more from this talented author, who this was also my first from her.
Big double thumbs up from me!

If The Fates Allow - Rainbow Rowell

I don't know what I was expecting when I saw a Jell-O mold on the cover and read the title, but it wasn't what I got. Probably a good thing though. 
This is a COVID romance of sorts. We are living in this unusual new normal time and the story was appropriate for the events with wit added to it. I actually laughed out loud three or four times. There were moments that were cute, and moments that stuck home. 
I really appreciate the authors' writing. She just has a way of telling a story that makes a reader want to hear it. This little story was no exception! I also loved how she incorporated her own surroundings in the story. I haven't read a story with a Nebraska backdrop before. It was cool for me. I like to armchair travel.
Anyway if you haven't read anything by this author, which I highly doubt, start with this little ditty. You will enjoy it too!

The Witch's Vacuum (And Other Stories) - Terry Pratchett
The Witch's Vacuum Cleaner: Deluxe Hardback Collector's Edition - Terry Pratchett
I got a free audio copy, so I decided to give it a whirl. I'm so glad I did! What magic lies within!!
It is a great anthology of short stories. Each one is different and most of them had me engrossed. I did lose track on a couple, but audiobooks always do that to me. 
The narrator was great, and I like the use of some sound effects. It brought some of the stories to life.
I really enjoyed The Great Train Robbery, An Ant Called 4179003, and Wizard War. To be fair, this set has me wanted to read more from the author.

The Backbone of the World - Stephen Graham Jones

 

I read the synopsis and was so intrigued, I had to read it!
Also being Native, I am drawn to all things surrounding Native culture.
This was also my introduction to the author. So I had many great reasons to be happy going into this.
It was kind of weird though. Not gonna lie. It was also kind of genius. You really have no clue what's happening until the very end, and then you totally get everything.
I loved Frog. She was a character.
I really like those kind of stories. Sadly, they can often be the ones you see other people DNFing, because they don't keep going they miss the brilliance of the whole tale.
I look forward to reading more from this author.

EARTH GIRLS ARE DIFFICULT by Frances Pauli
Earth Girls Are Difficult - Frances Pauli

9 short stories that range in tone from creepy to funny. Each has a paranormal theme.

My favorite story was Forbidden which has Lorenzo, a vampire, bemoaning the fact that no one is afraid of him like in the old days. He also craves garlic and has a way to get it but giving in to his craving contradicts his moaning.

 

Another favorite was Bad Dog who is Hatach who is a hellhound. He is rescued by a human. He is funny also.

 

El Emperador is also fun as you get the woman's thoughts and the horse's. The horse seems smarter than the woman. They are an interesting mix.

 

Silent Partner was good with Charles and the tattoo artist. Charles and his significant other, Janine, reminded me of Howard and Eunice in What's Up Doc? I am not sure if Charles was dreaming or if he had the tattoo. It's a little iffy.

 

The rest of the stories were okay but not as good as the ones I mentioned above. These stories are worth the few minutes it takes to read them.
