Bloody Bookish Bits

23 Feb

Ugh way too much alliteration, sorry. But I’m over at Bloody Bookish today waxing philisophical on Women in Horror Month for Blood Chatter.

Okay, it’s not philosophical at all, actually. I just like that expression. Thanks for the chat, Mary!

My planned Women in Horror Month reading is going very well. I’ve been stretching out the Linda Addison stories and poems over the course of the month, but I’m running out now. Looooove the voice in the shorts, and a few of the poems are insta-love so far. Already finished House of Fallen Trees, which was a — okay, this is a weird word to use for a horror story, but it was a delicious haunted house tale. Read Peter the Wolf, which was difficult for a lot of reasons, but extremely well done and more than worth reading. I’m well into Theatre of Curious Acts now — probably polish it off this weekend because it’s just so lovely to read. And then one more, the next Hexslinger installation, and I’m all good.

It’s been a fun month. I gotta remember to do this next year, too. Nice to take a month off and not let myself write anything new, to be honest. Sometimes one really needs a break from the voices. If you know what I mean.

And I know you do.

    I keep meaning to buy Gemma File’s books. They look so darn tempting.

    Now I shall head over to Bloody Bookish.

      I didn’t get to it before the month was out (brainhijack!) but oh man. The first one is soooooooo good.

    I know exactly what you mean, and those voices are threatening to burn me out! I need to just take a weekend and READ.

      Yeah it really, really does wonders! Of course I ended up spending THIS weekend writing furiously, but… sometimes we just don’t have a choice. When we do, mmmm, boooooks.

    Screw reading. My prescription is some serious food&wine porn in Italy!
