Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
Ah, that’s history. Read it back to back with Klara and the Sun and they had wonderful, bittersweet resonances I’m still feeling. Life really is beautiful and horrible, isn’t it?
If the person who translated "My Best Friend's Exorcism" into Turkish, got paid then there is no god.
It is that time of the year...
Also the time to complete my goodreads reading challenge with graphic novels and poetry because I don't have the attention span with all these exams fffff
How many are you aiming for this year? I’d put 30 for mine but only read 20 so far, haven’t found it as easy to lose myself in a good story as I used to!
I managed last year... thanks to the lockdown but I'm at 30 now and I don't know if I'll manage ffff
I only set a target of 24, but I’m thinking I’ll land on 52 - just started My Brilliant Friend as my fiftieth of the year.
I am half tempted to jump over to Storygraph next year, which allows you more interesting challenges, e.g. monthly themes or targets around number of pages rather than number of books.
Should I read Flowers for Algernon? I don't wanna cry Ddddd
No dust jacket
Drop that damn font, honey
That's gonna be his brand from now on, isn't it ñññ
I also want to! It's been mentioned in Bewilderment and now I'm curious dd
Currently on 35 books this year but not sure I’ll finish my current read in time for new year.
I have never tried setting a goal but might try it next year due the incentive
currently on The Islanders by S.V Leonard and liking it but I’m a bit worn out and lacking in energy to read right now. Hopefully now I’m done with Uni for the year and have no pressing engagements I’ll pick it up again.
I'm on my 35th and it pains me that there's no way I can get to 40...
Graphic novels. Or short stories. Not only do they add up but they are a great break from long full length novels.
The UK retailers are revealing their books of the year.
Choosing McCartney is kinda gross, to be honest. Especially when it costs £70.
Pleased for Natasha Brown though — Foyles generally makes much more interesting choices.
I’m so beyond excited for “To Paradise”. I know it’s out in just over a month but that hasn’t stopped me feverishly entering every competition to win ACR going nn
Hanya can’t relate!
I love Billie but nobody needed a photobook from an 18-year-old.
This was so embarrazzing.
