Reading project, week ending 19 June 2022

What have I read this week?

Earwig by B. Catling

This is a novel about a man named Aalbert who has been hired to look after a girl who lives in an apartment and has teeth made of ice. I didn’t really like this; I didn’t really like the characters and didn’t really get the point of it. I probably won’t read more by this author.

The Seep by Chana Porter

This is a science fiction novel set in a future world where an alien entity called The Seep has interconnected everything and everyone on the planet. It follows a trans woman named Trina who loses her wife to The Seep. I really liked this; I found the idea fascinating and the characters were interesting. I will probably read more by this author.

Tell Me I’m Worthless by Alison Rumfitt

This is a horror novel about Alice, Ila and Hannah, three friends who go into a haunted House. I am not sure how I feel about this one; it raised a lot of issues about modern Britain and the rise of anti-trans rhetoric and modern fascism. It was definitely interesting and I would probably read more by this author.
