“But I don‘t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can‘t help that,” said the Cat. “We‘re all mad here.”

It was fun revisiting this classic again. 🐇

1. Nothing in particular. This month I started reading unread books I‘ve had for years and rereading books I haven‘t read in years.

2. No, it‘s too distracting. I bought earplugs just for blocking out the neighbor‘s music when I‘m reading.

Thanks for the tag @Ddzmini

1. Not from reading, usually if I watch an adaptation. I mostly dream about TV and film characters and plots. Recently I‘ve had some creepy dreams with Ralph from The Outsider.

2. The Eye of the World, The Hobbit, Stephen King‘s It and Pet Sematary. I‘ve read these at least five times.

3. Write, focus more on reading, declutter around the house.

1. I don‘t vacation often, but when I do I make sure I take a small stack of books with me.

2. I didn‘t have a Kindle last time I took a vacation. I took two horror novels and a poetry book with me. I get homesick when I‘m away so I actually prefer the comfort of physical books.

Heart-Beast | Tanith Lee

‘In the snow-covered forest the beast lifts his heavy head. He kills and is unkillable. He is beautiful and horrific. He is the fear and the power, the envy and the magic and the desire. And he has come home to claim his place at last...‘

This is my third time reading this and it is my absolute favorite werewolf novel. The beautiful imagery Lee‘s writing invokes is amazing. This is a dark fairytale with a little blend of horror.

This was my first time reading this since early high school years. I didn‘t remember much of the story until I was reading it again. I‘m glad I revisited this as an adult as I probably have a better understanding of its importance now than I did as a young teen. Highly recommend.
