A light, fun read for anyone who has ever drawn their style inspiration from people watching. Great illustrations, too.

Randomly bought a book that has been on my Amazon wishlist for 5+ years. Because why not.

Remember when being able to draw parallels between GoT and the real world was funny? 😖

I could not have found a more perfect book to help me deal with my post-election fear and sadness. I am so grateful for the recommendation of @Amanda and @bookriot

Family never really fit the image we seem to carry of the "good old days."

A Feast for Crows | George R. R. Martin

It's amazing how Jaime's POV makes you like him more while Cercei's makes you like her less (if less is even possible). And yet, her perspective is always fascinating.

My favorite of the series so far. Iconic events from wall to wall.

A little more meandering than the first, but necessarily so (mostly). Could do with less description of food and clothes, though the texture is nice. Still hooked and hungry for the next.

Onward to more heartbreak. Thanks, George.

Well, I'll be damned. I was expecting to hate this and it turns out I really, really liked it. Martin is no great stylist, but his world building is kind of amazing.

NMLifeinWords I had Completely the same opinion and God I need the rest of the set now! 4y

Finally giving it a go. I'm skeptical, but we'll see.

MrBook I'm torn between this series and the Outlander series. Have you read any of Outlander? 4y
atroskity @MrBook I haven't, but a friend and I are hoping to do a buddy read of the first Outlander book sometime soon 4y

I can't believe I let this sit on my shelf for years! So, so good and really insightful about humanity and even the religion it so lovingly skewers. I think I read it in a little over a day.

This might be the first book I've ever read with almost zero exposition. Amazing and confusing all at once.

booksteachocolate I actually read the "The Battle of Candle Arc" short story in Conservation of Shadows first, and found that helpful! 4y
atroskity @booksteachocolate cool! I've been wanting to read his short stories anyway. 4y
booksteachocolate @atroskity Do it! I loved the collection so much I have it as an ebook and in physical format :) 4y

Rules of Summer | Shaun Tan

Holy shit this book is beautiful. The art takes my breath away and the story is so not what you would expect from a children's book- mostly because there is no story, per se. The book is just what it says: rules. But the pictures take it to a whole different level. Surreal and astonishing.

Fun Friday Photo: pets with books. This is Ina and she often guards my shelves. (Since there are a bunch of books here, I chose a title at random to link, but I do want to tackle Ha'penny eventually.)

FFP: fave ending. Maybe the happy ending is too good to be true, but it always makes me feel a little better about the world when I finish it for the umpteenth time. A great modern fairy tale and full of witchy goodness. The movie is not nearly as good (that's right- fight me!)

LA_Mead I agree--the book is better. It's one of my favourites! 4y

This book. I don't know what to say. It's good- but that word doesn't fit. The hard sci-fi elements are hard for me to grasp, and yet I'm still captivated.

New HP swag (part of a set but I'm going minimal today). And yes, I am very, very pale.

Readingismyescape Love this! Where did you get it? 4y
atroskity @Readingismyescape it's part of a branded set I got at a local game shop e-starland games. 4y

This series is batshit crazy in the absolute best way. It's like Donnie Darko and Stand by Me had a baby and that baby grew up to save the world at twelve years old and with bitchin' 1980s hair. I want more.

Grimlock This sounds amazing! 4y
