Holy cow, this week got away from me. Another Friday Fifteen already! Here are this week’s book reviews in fifteen words or fewer.
2. Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins by Emma Donoghue
Short story adaptations of fairy tales. Mostly I remember the fairy tale-crossover transitions.
3. The Ersatz Elevator (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #6) by Lemony Snicket
First time I remember encountering the word ‘ersatz.’ Enjoyed the depiction of the elevator shaft.
4. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
Quieter than I expected, but in a good way. Touching story, beautiful writing.
5. The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins
Everyone wants to come over when you’re making cookies.
