I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi

White is for Witching - Helen Oyeyemi

29/8 - I read up to page 58 then took the time to skim/read Richard Reviles Censorship's review to see if my problems with the book were mine alone, it wasn't encouraging. I hadn't liked the writing style or four different voices from the first lines I read. I didn't like the fact that it was ambiguous as to whose voice I was hearing from, I had to work it out from which of the other characters were mentioned by eliminating them one by one. A character called Ore had a portion of a chapter right at the beginning, some 30 pages before we actually find out who Ore is - a strangely (and needlessly) confusing situation for the reader. The blurb on the back was so promising, but was ruined (for me) by the strange language, although I may not have continued even if the language had been more normal considering some of the other problems other reviewers have pointed out.
