    1. L. Timmel Duchamp says that Love's stories consist of "fairly plain words (and never very many of them)," in her introduction to this collection. That might sound like faint praise indeed, except that the rest of the introduction praises those same words' "amazing, amusing magic" - and she's right. It's also why, when Alisa Krasnostein (of Twelfth Planet Press, who put this collection out - yes, fair dealing, she's a friend) asked what I thought of it I had to pause, and think through my respons [...]


    2. The Secret Lives of Books by Rosaleen Love is the tenth volume in the Twelve Planets series from Twelfth Planet Press. This volume collects five unconnected short stories (unconnected in terms of plot; like many of the other volumes in the series, there are connected thematic elements).The first story in the collection is the titular The Secret Lives of Books. There is a deceptive simplicity about Love's prose which is especially evident in this story. Expect no baroque prose here, but rather an [...]


    3. A slender collection of short stories, each one packing quite a punch. Love's writing style is quite pared back, understated, and the subtlety of the stories is a delight. Each story interrogates a different aspect of culture and/or politics, investigating the domestic and small, as well as the world-spanning and world-changing. Well worth a read.


    4. Secret Lives of Books, is the tenth book in the Twelve Planets series, released by Twelfth Planet Press, which showcase the talent of female Australian authors. There is now to be a thirteenth in the series, but that's a review for another time. The brief given to authors was to write several short stories of up to 40,000 words in total. The stories could be separate, discrete narratives or linked through character, setting or theme.This collection contains five short stories that don't appear t [...]


    5. The Secret Lives of Books is the tenth in the Twelfth Planet series of short story collections, showcasing female writers. Five stories showcase Rosaleen Love's quirky and distinctive point of view. The title story "Secret Lives of Books" feels like a cautionary tale for book hoarders -- even if you could live amongst your books, would you want to? "Kiddofspeed" feels strangely apt in the age of "fake news" and online memes. The truth is rarely as interesting as the fiction created online. "Qasi [...]


    6. Secret Lives of Books by Rosaleen Love is the latest volume in Twelfth Planet Press's Twelve Planets series of collections. With this one, I wasn't sure what to expect going in — other than feminism — since I'm not familiar with any of Love's other work. And it was about feminism, although that was mainly the last story, which I suspect is the one to stick in people's minds.It's called Secret Lives of Books, but I think what it's really about is the secret lives of stories. All five stories [...]


    7. This review forms part of my contribution to the Australian Women Writers 2014 Reading Challenge. All my 2014 AWWC reviews can be found here.Secret Lives by Rosaleen Love is the 10th book in the Twelve Planets series from Twelfth Planet Press. It is a very quick read, coming in at 80 pages.Now what did I think of the collection? In summary: beautifully written, surreal verging on absurdist, punchy, insightful and satisfying.I've debated how much to write in this review, as I'm almost certain [...]


    8. Secret Lives of Books was on my list of ‘Absolutely Must Buy’ books to get at Continuum, and I grabbed it almost as soon as I could. One of the absolutely brilliant Twelve Planets series of books, it’s a collection of stories which almost feel like thoughts and dreams.Rosaleen Love’s writing really felt like nothing I’d come across before. It was so calm and even and you found yourself being lulled into the story, gently carried through it. Until something twists, and you find yourself [...]


    9. I received a free copy of this book through a Giveaway. However, my opinions below are my own. Although I didn't like this book, it was a well written, creative group of stoires. It simply wasn't my type of book. The Secret Lives of Books is a group of short stories which are linked by transporting the reader to another world of some sort (e.g. mars or even a world of books). The concepts behind each of the stories were interesting, and I think I might like it even better if they were full nove [...]


    10. There were aspects of this book I enjoyed, but for the most part I found it too esoteric for my tastes. The stories, while constructed from straightforward language and easy-to-digest sentences, felt rambling to me. The author seems more interested in setting and mood, and in playing with concepts, than in telling a story. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn't particularly work for me. I found myself consistently wishing that she'd hurry up and get to the point, only to find that th [...]


    11. 3.5 stars. I had mixed feelings about these stories - a couple I very much enjoyed, but others weren't as much to my taste.
