The Little Blue Kite | Mark Z. Danielewski

Reading #TheLittleBlueKite again. This illustration gets me, every time. I can't wait for this to come out next month, so you all can read it, too. I need more people to talk to about it! #love #fear #Kai #kidlit #middlegrade #alsoadults #MarkZDanielewski #MZD

Yep, the t-shirt and pin arriving from @outofprint yesterday just as I finished the book I was reading last night means it's re-read time.

One thing I love about #TheLittleBlueKite is despite all the parts geared toward the youngest readers - there are multiple ways to read it - those of us who love #MarkZDanielewski 's other works have all kinds of things to find and pick apart or just enjoy. This is one of the illustrations that strikes me most, on initial reads. #TLBK #HouseofLeaves #OnlyRevolutions #T50YS #TheFamiliar #love #joy #fear #Kai #kites #flying #skies #kids #kidlit

I cannot tell you all how special a book this is. It's for children. It's for middle grades. And it's for adults. Depending upon which way you read it; there are at least three or four ways to read it. #joy #fear #loss #love #HouseofLeaves #HoL #OR #OnlyRevolutions #T50YS #TF #TheFamiliar #MZD #MarkZDanielewski #BeaHymnforGood

Death's End | Cixin Liu

Finally on the last book of the trilogy. This story is excellent, but I feel like each book stoutly plods along until it picks up the pace near the end. Not a bad thing, mind you, but good to know so you know if it suits your current reading mood.

Better late than never, The Three-Body Problem has been on my wishlist since before publication. I recently realized how long it's been when my favorite author recommended the entire trilogy. Bonus: books one and three are translated by Ken Liu, whose most poetic voice has never failed to make me happy. #TheThreeBodyProblem #LiuCixin #CixinLiu #KenLiu #scifi

JessicaThunstromNelson SO SO GOOD! 5mo

I had to get the 1-year subscription to Gagosian Quarterly when Mark Z. Danielewski announced his new story Love is Not a Flame would be in it in four parts, from Spring 2019 to Winter 2019. All of his stories are connected, but this one is said to connect heavily to The Familiar. I'm excited to finally dig in. And of course I am reading the rest of the quarterly, too.

JessicaThunstromNelson I did read the first single issue on Comixology forever ago, but this is my first collected arc, I think. Also, I don't have the ones that follow, so I've been hanging on to this for awhile, but I give up waiting. 12mo

Starting this lovely tonight! It isn't in Litsy's library yet, though. 😕 Luckily, the author has a thing to do with #TF though, so I can still connect this to him, however loosely. 😁 #ActivatingCities #NoamAssayag #merrywanderer

Someone not only left a word out of this book's title, they also attributed it to the wrong author. 🙄 Yes, I submitted the correct information, but I'll be long finished reading it by the time it gets added. #irritation

Skipping over volume 29 since I've read it a few times and the last wasn't terribly long ago, and moving on to volume 30!
