Angela Carter Week – 8 -15 June 2014

Angela Carter Week is finally here. What started as a casual remark on Beautyisasleepingcat, one of my favorite blogs, led to a one week event co-hosted by Caroline and I, as part of the Once Upon a Time Challenge.
Here are the guidelines:

– The event lasts for a week
– Choose one of the two badges for your blog/website
– You can read/listen (to) anything by Angela Carter
– Leave a comment with the link to your review here or on Caroline’s blog (or both) at any time starting today until the last day of the event.

Anyone can join, just leave your name in a comment. You can find my intro post with a list of Angela Carter’s work here and a list of all the participants here.
For this week I plan on reading a short story collection – The Secret Chamber, and a novel – Nights at the Circus. I’ll post the review for the first sometime next week, and hopefully I’ll get to finish the second by Sunday, the last day of the event.
Thanks to all the participants for taking part in this. I look forward to reading your reviews!

    I’m very curious to hear your thoughts on both books. I’ve read a collection of stories and The Magic Toyshop.

      Well, I just finished The Bloody Chamber and trying to find my words now… I’m a bit conflicted.
      The Magic Toyshop sounds promising, looking forward to the review.

    Thanks for hosting this event, Delia! I can’t wait to get started on my Angela Carter book. I love the badges.

    Here is my post on “The Man Who Loved a Double Bass”, Angela Carter’s very first published short story.

    Glad to see this event.

  4. I’m joining in and am reading Nights at the Circus, loving it so far. It’s my first foray into Angela Carter’s work!

    • Delia says:

      Hi Cathy, and welcome to the event. I’m reading Night at the Circus as well, though I’m not as enthusiastic about it as you, I think. It would be interesting to read your review.

    Unfortunately can’t fit one in at the moment but hoping all the reviews will inspire me to pick one for the TBR – I’ve never read anything by Carter. Good luck with the challenge!

    I see you’re also reading Pure at the moment – when I read it a couple of years ago I gave it 4 stars, but unlike most books it has really stayed vividly in my memory and I’ve realised it really deserved 5. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it. 🙂

    • Delia says:

      Ok then, looking forward to seeing your choice.

      I really enjoyed the beginning of Pure but then I lost interest so I took a break from it for Angela Carter Week; I’m hoping to pick it up again next week.
