The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

  Clever chicks who kick ass and go back to save people and are kind to smaller children...I love Tana. There's plenty of creepy atmosphere, and vampire slaying, and gore for days, but there's no swearing or sex (if that's something you look for) and in its own way it's rather wholesome. Tana and Buffy would get along well together.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

I've made very little progress despite two bonus days at home because other family members get cabin fever and want me to do things other than read. So I 'vs been making Halloween sugar cookies and watching season 2 of The Good Place, and looking at a lot of weather maps. Also I got distracted looking up Springfield MA which is Coldtown, and has a surprisingly large stock of Victorian homes for sale.

 

But I am really liking Coldtown which centres yet another brave and impulsive heroine and a Russian connection. Two big plates o' shrimp.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

Holly Black does not mess about, she throws you into the dark straight off. I am not frightened of a vampire apocalypse, but as a metaphor about everyone having a darkside, oh yeah, she goes there. Fortunately I have cats.

 

 

Nothing could go wrong with companions like these.

 

 

Allow me to introduce Queen Luna Grey DeLisle. Luna doesn't much like Calder, but they both want very much to get all the attention.

Scarlett Eno is keeping a watch on the leaves being blown about. 

 

I'm done now with the cat pictures.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

For Genre: Horror

 

I was looking at my card to choose my next read strategically, and then looking at my list, to choose something brief and easily finished, and I dithered. Then Tash walked in and asked what I was doing and wanted to pick the next one. First pick was something I don't have yet, second was the buddy read, so third time's a charm.

 

Supposedly this was selected for the name, but also Spiderwick was a foundational series and film.

 

I confess, I don't remember what it is supposed to be about, but Black is strong and capable of serious creepiness (Doll Bones, shudder). Onward.
