Good morning everyone! I hope you’re having a great day so far. We had a great weekend — got loads of stuff done, and managed to play outside without a big heavy jacket for probably one of the last times this year. We also put Will in his Halloween costume for the first time — he’s a dragon — and he while he originally hated it, he eventually forgot he had it on. It is hilarious watching a little dragon push cars around on the floor.
Anyway, I hope your week is a good one, friends!
I’m a sucker for werewolves – as you all know – and I saw this one on someone else’s blog last week and immediately added it to my TBR. Anything with werewolves, and I’M IN.
SUCH SHARP TEETH BY RACHEL HARRISON
A young woman in need of a transformation finds herself in touch with the animal inside in this gripping, incisive novel from the author of Cackle and The Return.
Rory Morris isn’t thrilled to be moving back to her hometown, even if it is temporary. There are bad memories there. But her twin sister, Scarlett, is pregnant, estranged from the baby’s father, and needs support, so Rory returns to the place she thought she’d put in her rearview. After a night out at a bar where she runs into an old almost-flame, she hits a large animal with her car. And when she gets out to investigate, she’s attacked.
Rory survives, miraculously, but life begins to look and feel different. She’s unnaturally strong, with an aversion to silver—and suddenly the moon has her in its thrall. She’s changing into someone else—something else, maybe even a monster. But does that mean she’s putting those close to her in danger? Or is embracing the wildness inside of her the key to acceptance?
This darkly comedic love story is a brilliantly layered portrait of trauma, rage, and vulnerability.
Have a wonderful week!
