Lionel Shriver: We Need to Talk About Kevin
We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver

This book is excellent in every way. This was not the right time for me to read it. Even with the anxiety it caused in me, however, I couldn't put it down. Now that I have finished it, I wonder if I will pick it up again...perhaps once my kid has survived high school (touch-wood).

Reading progress update: I've read 93 out of 190 pages.
The Solitary Summer - Elizabeth von Arnim

More baby talk about the hereafter, occasioned by the "June baby"'s insistence that she doesn't want to go to paradies because there's nothing there for her to play with, which prompts this response by her sisters and her mother:

"'Why, she can play at ball there with all the Sternleins if she likes!'

The idea of the June baby striding across the firmament and hurling the stars about as carelessly as though they wre tennis-balls was so magnificent that it sent shivers of awe through me as I read."

The stars' tennis balls, out of the mouths of babes -- what say you now, Messrs. Shakespeare and Frey?

I love the three "babies'" schoolroom debates.  And their debates while playing.

 

And Elizabeth must have had great confidence in the linguistic prowess of her readers ...

Review: “The Flesh Cartel #18: The Long Road (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation)” (The Flesh Cartel, #18) by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau
The Flesh Cartel #18: The Long Road (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

 

Please note that this is my rating for the entire series!

 

This 19-book novella series felt more like a long book that's been divided into 19 chapters, and it feels kinda weird to rate each chapter of a book individually (and it also couldn't possibly do the whole story justice this way).

 

But if I HAD to rate this instalment on its own, my rating would be:

 

 

~ 4.5 stars ~
