House of Leaves | Mark Z Danielewski
post image

I knew immediately what I will be choosing for #TPRC Katherine Martell - a book you had/will have to push yourself through.
My kryptonite book is House of Leaves. I tried solo, buddy reads, chapter a day. Only to pull the parachute cord and bail. 🪂
YouTuber Oskar/A Theory Reader has taken on the brave task of audiobooking HoL. I want to wait until he‘s finished with it before I make another attempt at it.

SconsinBookyBadger @Leftcoastzen last time I read HoL I made it half way through. I‘m more hopeful now that a YouTuber is audiobooking it. 😸 4w

#SundayFunday on a Monday Runday.
My go-to reads are usually Alice in Wonderland, The Princess Bride, Watership Down, Black Beauty, and Octavia Butler‘s Parable duology. Occasionally other books get thrown in the mix. Some time down the road I plan on re-reading Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman graphic novels.

The day to read the hexalogy series has arrived. I had to complete my set since I stopped at Library of Souls. Distracted by other books was more of a cause than lack of interest that paused the continuation of reading the Peculiar Children series. I have to finish The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home. Then it‘s onto MGHfPC

A little book splurging therapy after enduring a chaotic work week. I ordered all of them online since they‘re listed as out of stock at my B&N. And now I wait for the Shanghai star crossed lovers and their gang to arrive in the mail. Except Our Violent Ends. That‘s a pre-order to a June release.

As I mentioned in previous post. I was inspired by a random booktuber that YT recommended based on my watch history. First prompt from Benghis Kahn‘s video is Standalone. Tagged book gets the win on this.

Good timing to hop on Litsy to see a readathon taking place. This reading slump that continues to drag me down needs to be away with. idk what goals I plan on setting except open a book!
