A sumptuous insight into Chinese folklore, ancient superstition and the afterlife.
This book will have you grinning like an absolute nutcase, have you smirking on the bus whilst the person perched next to you gives you a dirty side-eye.
Lies, adultery, a loveless marriage, some men being super pricks, scheming staff and a hint of sneaky romance on the side. Everything you could want in a book.
You don’t have to give up on books just because your brain is wired a little differently. You just need to adapt.
I love you little book with a hint of witchy vibes. You are the perfect read for winter nights.
Perhaps I’m dead inside. Perhaps I just ‘didn’t get it’, or perhaps my humour, haunting or dark detection switch was set to off that day, but Convenience Store Woman wanders its way into the meh-you’re-alright-but-also-totally-average pile.
I wanted to love you (I really, really did). You had everything I like in a good read – a pretty holographic cover, a post-apocalyptic setting and a twist on the traditional vampire take. It should have been perfect.
