What We’re Reading This Week! — A Cautionary Tale from Jenn
I like to think I am made of pretty stern stuff — but Sara Gran and Rachel Klein have wrecked me this week. I’d been saving up Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway for a time when I was desperate for a suspenseful read, and it just so happened to be the same week that I got my copy of therejectionist-recommended Moth Diaries, and between the two of them I feel like I can’t breathe. In a “OH MY GOD THESE BOOKS ARE SO GOOD” way! But still. Claire has gone off her rocker and is drowning in drugs and remorse, the narrator of Moth Diaries is also drug-addled and having supernatural visions, and my dreams are … well. Let’s just say that as soon as I get to work I’m going to read as many picture books as possible. And if you have any CHEERFUL NON-BREATH STEALING PREFERABLY NO ONE DIES book recommendations for me, I WILL TAKE THEM.
