Cecily's book reviews

In general I've written reviews of every book I've read since I joined GoodReads (RIP) in May 08, along with one or two I read prior to that. More recent reviews tend to be longer (sometimes a tad too long?). I always carry a book, though I don't get as much time as I'd like to get engrossed - life is busy, but in a good way. Too many of my favourite authors died without writing enough! Apart from reading, and writing about reading, I enjoy Scrabble, good restaurants, woodland, and attending the theatre.

Encyclopaedia Of Snow

Encyclopaedia of Snow - Sarah Emily Miano An alphabetical list of entries, though you can actually read it in any order - a non-sequential novel, though novel is hardly the word. Some entries are related to snow, but duality and alchemy are major themes too. Gradually, threads linking some of the entries become evident, especially the longer ones. Self consciously clever and beautiful.
