The Library at Mount Char
The Library at Mount Char | Scott Hawkins
A missing God.A library with the secrets to the universe.A woman too busy to notice her heart slipping away.Carolyn's not so different from the other people around her. She likes guacamole and cigarettes and steak. She knows how to use a phone. Clothes are a bit tricky, but everyone says nice things about her outfit with the Christmas sweater over the gold bicycle shorts.After all, she was a normal American herself once.That was a long time ago, of course. Before her parents died. Before she and the others were taken in by the man they called Father.In the years since then, Carolyn hasn't had a chance to get out much. Instead, she and her adopted siblings have been raised according to Father's ancient customs. They've studied the books in his Library and learned some of the secrets of his power. And sometimes, they've wondered if their cruel tutor might secretly be God.Now, Father is missingperhaps even deadand the Library that holds his secrets stands unguarded. And with it, control over all of creation.As Carolyn gathers the tools she needs for the battle to come, fierce competitors for this prize align against her, all of them with powers that far exceed her own.But Carolyn has accounted for this.And Carolyn has a plan.The only trouble is that in the war to make a new God, she's forgotten to protect the things that make her human.Populated by an unforgettable cast of characters and propelled by a plot that will shock you again and again,The Library at Mount Charis at once horrifying and hilarious, mind-blowingly alien and heartbreakingly human, sweepingly visionary and nail-bitingly thrillingand signals the arrival of a major new voice in fantasy.

I loved this book. I‘m still decompressing from the most amazing ride my mind has ever taken.

post image

“With this particular species of crazy, you stop trying to make things better. You start trying to maximize the bad. You pretend to like it. Eventually you start working to make everything as bad as possible. It‘s an avoidance mechanism.” Jennifer looked Carolyn directly in the eyes. “It can‘t actually work. That‘s why they call it crazy.”

post image

“ Of course, genuine emotion is the very essence of self. It cannot ever be unfelt, cannot be ignored, cannot even be channeled for very long. But, with practice and care, it may be hidden. “

This book is wild, y‘all .....and I‘m into it 👏🏾.

Billypar Creepy- I was literally just thinking about this book, and then it's the third book in my feed, lol. Guess that's a sign I need to check it out! 2w

FINALLY finished this weird ass book. It was good, but was hard to follow at first because it just jumps head first into craziness. I wouldn't label it horror per se, but there were some pretty horrific characters and some pretty #gory scenes. 😬 (6pts. 5 for book, 1 for post)

#SoaringScores Not quite the #LibraryofCongress but a uniquely different and interesting library. This was a total #BlameItOnLitsy read 🤓It was whacky and weird and slightly wonderful. If you want to try something different and a little creepy too, #GoForIt and this is a new cover I haven‘t seen before...thanks Google 😜

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Cranked it up to 2x speed and pushed through. I didn‘t hate it, nor did I like it exactly. Urban fantasy just isn‘t my thing. This story is totally bizarre, confusing, and grotesquely violent. If it had been reined in a bit, the whole might‘ve made more sense. Hidden in the weirdness is an elaborate revenge story, rooted in friendship. My favorite parts were the childhood flashbacks and the badass cover.

Erinreadsthebooks It is a great cover 😍 2mo

I purposefully went into this with as little knowledge as possible except that it is weird, so I wasn't expecting the ultra violence. Not quite a holiday read lol though the dark humour is great. Fascinating, inventive and addictive, but I still don't know what I think! 150 pages left to decide 👍

Well, we made it to our Up North destination. What this sign should say is "Welcome to Spider Hell." Trying out a new place this year and between the legion of arachnids, sulfuric stench of the water and the soul less gaze of taxidermied animals lining the walls, I am hoping that The Library At Mount Char will be creepier then my real life situation? Thankfully the weather is beautiful and we can spend plenty of time outside. ?

Kaila-ann I think the book was more weird than creepy in my opinion but I think it should be enough to take your mind off the cabin for a while lol. 5mo

When I saw #Shocking was today‘s prompt in the #30JuneBooks challenge, I immediately knew what book I‘d tag. Refreshingly original with a cast of characters so bizarre they were fascinating. Unfortunately, as much as I liked the first half of the book, by the second half it felt like the author was just trying to outdo himself with the increasing ultra-violence. A good book that could have been a great one if the shock value had been toned down.

LauraJ Great pic! 5mo

DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Thanks, Becky! I‘m torn myself about possibly recommending this book to you. On the one hand, some of the writing is so original and almost poetic at times, I think you‘d get a lot out of it, but then other parts are really horrific! 😔 The worst parts are later in the book anyway, maybe you could start it and if it gets to be too much, stop reading when it gets too violent? 🤔 5mo
DaveGreen7777 @CouronneDhiver I totally get that. I‘ve heard stories about interference from editors and publishers hurting an author‘s original vision, but in this case, I think maybe an editor reining in the author and preventing him from getting so carried away would have been a good thing! 5mo

Something strange happened. I went from not being able to read scary stuff AT ALL (like nightmares for months) to being able to stomach almost anything. Why, I wonder? What changes are you noticing in your tastes as a reader? Do your tastes ebb & flow? 📖🌊
📚 I‘m currently reading The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins. It's pretty horrifying. But it's also gripping. Will let you know what I finally decide when I'm done. #fantasy #horror

CouronneDhiver I‘ve noticed that too... I‘m a more picky reader now than I used to be. But I‘m ok with it. 🤓 6mo

I am very vulnerable to outrageous ideas even when they fail. This book doesnt always work.its a very very weird book. But the parts that do, really fucking do. I will be reading whatever Hawkins writes next. I dont know what it says about me that i was rooting for carolyn. May God forgive me, but please keep bringing on the weirdness.
Any good book must entertain, and this one does.

Well . . . it‘s finished. I‘m not 100% sure how I feel about it. The story was fascinating and also way over the top but in the end, I think the ending is what made me decide so-so. I can‘t quite put into words why the ending left me feeling just meh but that‘s what I felt. Definitely an interesting read all in all tho.

DaveGreen7777 I agree with a lot of what you just said! Overall I liked the book, but it really lost something in the third act... what I found most interesting was the different librarians, and when they all got unceremoniously dispatched in one scene (except for David), I just wasn‘t as invested anymore! 😕 7mo
Kaila-ann @DaveGreen7777 agreed. Even the ones that had been Carolyn‘s friends like Jennifer - that seemed harsh. And Steven getting turned it to the sun and her just being ok with it - wasn‘t a fan there either. Overall, I enjoyed the book even tho it‘s not my normal type of read but the ending felt, I dunno, kinda rushed maybe? 🤷🏻‍♀️. (edited) 7mo

This was a roller coaster ride, totally #blameitonLitsy , I‘m not even sure how to categorize this book. Probably horror. Trigger ⚠️ warnings- bad things happen to children. It‘s a pick but it‘s not for everyone. A demon ? decides to raise twelve orphaned kids as his acolytes in what he calls his library. What happens when he goes missing and the twelve are let loose in modern America? Mayhem!

Happy #JolabokaflodSwap! My (chocolate) cup runneth over! Thank you, @staci.reads for the lovely card, the gorgeous bookish book and the yummy chocolate. I may share the chocolate with the Hubs, but the Godiva is allllll mine!
Thanks for giving me a great match and hosting the swap, @MaleficentBookDragon ❤❄🍫📚

staci.reads Yay! I'm so glad it got there on time! I was such a slacker not getting it sent sooner! Merry Christmas, and enjoy! 11mo
MidnightBookGirl @staci.reads Oh, if you only knew how much of a procrastinator I was! Honestly, it's probably good I got to open it today instead of having to practice self control! Your gift was the perfect balm to a hectic day! 11mo

My bestie, the Boulder Library, has decked this tree out in such a way I can‘t help but think of sea anemones
When I got home I discovered I had some #listymail
Thank you so much @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled and @Avanders for your kindness and generosity!🖤

Avanders Lol your bestie does have an anemone tree!! 👏🏽💙 And you're quite welcome 😘😘 11mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Im so glad it actually arrived!! 😁 ❤️ 11mo
jmofo @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled it‘s cool you liked it so much you wanted to share. (Also, I usually remove the dust jacket while reading a book so I don‘t tear it, so it‘s okay by me it‘s a nudist. 😬) 11mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled 🤣🤣🤣 let me know what you think when you get to it! 11mo

This! I finished the Library at Mount Char last week and have since started five books but I've been unable to really get into any of them #sendhelp!

abbielistenstobooks It is so hard! Sometimes I have to cleanse my palate by completely changing genres, and/or reading something for which I have super low expectations. 11mo

I love to read snuggled up with coffee, and a #BookAndBlankie! This is one of my favorite blankets, made for me by my godmother, 40+ years ago. 💖

I started this book last night and I like it so far, but I'm not quite far enough along to really get what's going on, lol! This morning I'm snuggled up reading with a cup of Bluesberry coffee, which is surprisingly good. Bones Coffee is the best! #coffeeandabook

SexyCajun Blueberry ICED coffee sounds delish! 11mo

CoffeeNBooks @AmyG I'm obsessed with it, lol! What flavor did you get? 11mo
CoffeeNBooks @SexyCajun That does sound really good! 11mo
AmyG I got Shark Bite. Very clever....a rum flavored coffee. Yo ho ho. 11mo
Velvetfur I've just googled that company and now I want all the coffee, and a tote bag and a mug, lol 😂 They ship internationally too so when I get a job and some money I'm going to buy loads, haha! 11mo
CoffeeNBooks @AmyG Yum! I haven't tried Shark Bite, but I have Coconut Rum- super yummy! 11mo
CoffeeNBooks @Velvetfur I've bought too many sampler packs because I want to try all the flavors, lol! I also have a t-shirt. They had a promotion recently where you got a free tote bag with a sampler pack purchase, so I have a tote bag now, too. The coffee is a bit pricey, but it really is extremely good. 11mo
Velvetfur @CoffeeNBooks Ah yes but one gets what one pays for with coffee, I find, so it's worth it ☺️ 11mo
AmyG @Velvetfur Oh, it‘s worth the price. I find the coffee to be excellent and it lasts a long time. I am a huge fan. And I love the flavors. 11mo
Velvetfur @AmyG OK now I'm drooling, haha! 11mo
