We aren't even a vegetarian household, and we cannot wait to try *so many* of these recipes!

Been wanting to read this one for a long time. When I noticed the second book hitting store shelves, I knew it was time.

I really need sleep, but it seems forever away. So wearily onward toward the dark tower we go.

Moving on in my #TheDarkTower re-read. Book 5 is one of my least favorite. This is definitely going to be the volume where I find out if my depressive rut needs me to read something else instead.

My Dark Tower re-read is going extra slowly, because I'm also re-reading Mark Z Danielewski's The Familiar series. #love #fiction #TheDarkTower #StephenKing #TheFamiliar #TF #MarkZDanielewski #MZD

I have been reading disappointingly slowly this year, been very distractable. I have so many new reads waiting, but so many re-reads demanding their due time. I am trying to not beat myself up over 2019, and to look forward to the books of 2020. 🤞

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

The Little Blue Kite | Mark Z. Danielewski

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
post image

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

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.

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
