I'm a Chinese student studying in the U. S.. I like reading and talking about books I like or dislike.
Please add me as a friend if you want to.

Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins - Emma Donoghue Read it b/c it's a monthly book in a GR group. The premise is similar to CMV's Orphan's Tales as both are nested fairy tales that heavily feature cross-generation collaboration of women, while the minimalistic language reminds me more of the YA works of Francesca Lia Block. It may seem less original nowadays as it was in the 90s b/c since its publishment a number of writers have done similar stuff, although IMO few of them can write as well as Emma Donoghue.
