I almost forgot to add that I finished this. I moved it to my “Book Review” tab in OneNote, which I usually don’t do until I post about it. I’ll review it like I review other short story collections by focusing on the stories I actually liked.
Title: Big Little Lies
Author: Liane Moriarity

Date Started: October 1, 2021
Date Finished: October 16, 2021
My BFF informed there’s a TV series about this book, and my brother has HBO Max, so I will be checking this out. It’s apparently very true to the book, and the book was fantastic. It had me guessing the entire time who the Trivia Night victim was.
I was on the fence about her Nine Perfect Strangers, but I think I’m going to check that out, too, before I watch the Hulu series.
Title: Maternal Horror Film: Melodrama and Motherhood
Author: Sarah Arnold
Date Added: July 20, 2019

I finished the introduction and gleaned many notes. I’ll come back to this at some point in the rotation.
Title: Being and Time
Author: Martin Heidegger
Date Added: August 18, 2017
Date Started: April 30, 2020 | October 19, 2021
I just read a bit of the Foreword and the translator’s note, which is why I’m at 0%.
Title: Elric of Melniboné
Series: The Elric Saga
Author: Michael Moorcock
Date Added: October 21, 2016
Date Started: October 14, 2021
Elric is the 428th in direct line of descent from the original Sorcerer Emperor, and that’s my birthday number lol. I love how he’s described as “a sort of Superman for Goths.” He’s also another example of a white/silver haired dragon person (he rules from Dragon Isle), and I have a whole list of them. It’s…interesting and I haven’t quite figured out why it’s a thing. I bet it’s something really simple. Anyway I’m enjoying this quite a bit. It’s interesting and I want to see where it goes.
Title: Under the Whispering Door
Author: T. J. Klune
Date Added: June 27, 2021
Date Started: September 25, 2021
It took me way too long to realize Hugo and Elias (An Ember in the Ashes) have the same job.
Title: A Sky Beyond the Storm
Series: An Ember in the Ashes
Author: Sabaa Tahir
Date Added: November 1, 2020

I’m reading this so slowly you’d think I didn’t like it, but I do. It’s weird. It’s like how I wouldn’t want to exercise but once I started I enjoyed it. It’s always difficult for me to pick it up, but I never regret it once I do.
This week has been so rough. The weather changed and my fatigue ramped up as well as my achiness. It usually only lasts a day or two, but this has been lingering. I haven’t been able to work on my WIP, and it’s been lucky I’m where I am with my editing e.g. it’s not as mentally taxing right now. It’s back up to the 70s now, and I wish the weather would make up its mind. It’s murdering us more sensitive folks.
