First literature I have read for homework this semester. A really fun quick flash of a story that leaves you with your jaw dropped. New neighbors move in across the street and when the Bortons daughter starts spending a little too much time across the canyon conflict arises. Found the anthology Troubled Daughters Twisted Wives edited by Sarah Weinman. #homework #litmajor

The story just gets more and more intense as the search for the Dark Tower advances. Seriously, this saga is nothing like any other King work I‘ve read. There is a magic to this work that goes far beyond the name of its creator. Read away friends, read away.

"If a customer spends eight thousand dollars for a signed first edition[...] it makes perfect sense to put that book away in a safe place where it can be admired but not touched. If the fellow actually wants to read the story, let him buy a vintage paperback. [...] books can be objects of great value. That value is created in different ways. "

The White People | Arthur Machen

This book has been seen as a foundation piece for supernatural literature, which makes me a tad upset I didn't like it more. It lacked any real incline to its plot and when the big moment of what was suppose to be the climax came I felt like the firecracker fizzled and never went off. I did enjoy the folklore aspect to the piece and overall didn't mind spending the time to read it. Basically it's just one big shrug.

As always Fitzgerald is a delight! His story telling abilities are really highlighted in this novel, he wove short story with so much going on and so many historical events to account for and yet the narration stayed whimsical. It was an absolute joy to read.

A favorite read this year! The Anthem takes place in a society where everyone is a We, instead of an I. When one citizen starts to question what he has been told he begins to ask the definition of individuality and humanity. Ayn Rand tells this story with power and purpose, I was blown away by how fitting this message is for our current society. You are one person, and is enough to change our entire reality. Humanities flaws are every changing. 💡

Simple yet complex in his writing Bierce is able to send chills up your spine by simply giving you something you can't see. I really enjoyed this story and have a feeling you will to! If you have an extra half hour someday download the Serial app and give it a whirl.

The Yellow Wall Paper | Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Out of the three short stories I read this month this one is my absolute favorite. Nothing like a little insanity and horrid wallpaper to make you fall down a sinister rabbit hole. With many symbolic touches to the ideals of feminism this story escalates with each page and by the end has you wondering if you are apart of the yellow wallpaper.

I am a sucker for gothic literature and actually read this gem via an app called Serial (I recommend). The story was perverse and suspenseful, the more you read the more sinister it got, and overall was an absolute thrill to read. If you struggle with classic lit this a great book to dip your feet into the genre with.

The Stand | Stephen King

Mehso-so

I am probably going to get shit for not giving this a higher rating but I was actually underwhelmed by this book. As always King's writing was near perfection but the characters were so well fleshed out that when their deaths were bland I felt almost cheated as a reader. But, it'sone Stephen Kings more iconic works and if you haven't read it I recommend you do.

Nice relaxing detour in the world of The Dark Tower before heading into the second half of this series. Can be read as a standalone but is much better with knowledge of the series. As always King is a master storyteller!

Best book so far. This is where we finally get to understand the humanity of Roland and just how much the Dark Tower has taken from him and who it has built him to be.

Wizard and Glass | Stephen King

So do we pass the ghosts that haunt us later in our lives; they sit undramatically by the roadside like poor beggars, and we see them only from the corner of our eyes, if we see them at all. The idea they have been waiting there for us rarely crosses our minds. Yet they do wait, and when we have passed, they gather up their bundles of memories and fall in behind, treading our footsteps and catching up little by little.

Only Stephen King can take cyborg bears, an evil AI train and a dog/ raccoon hybrid put them all in the same story and have it be one of the best books in the series so far. #ibowdowntotheKing

Ellen Hopkins can capture a character and their moments in simple prose in a way some authors cannot achieve with whole books. Tricks is haunting and poignant and it achieves it goal of making you feel filthy yet full of hope for redemption.

6. Rereading a book I read years ago and getting to be reminded why I loved that book and reading in general.
7. I didn't really like War of the Worlds and I feel bad because it was written really well.

You know an author is phenomenal when you devour 279 pages in three hours. Hopkins can say more with prose than some authors can do with an entire book.
