Thanks for the game, @Eggs !
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.
1. 'House of Leaves' by Mark Z Danielewski
2. 'Fortune's Daughter' by Isabel Allende
3. 'Bad Monkeys' by Matt Ruff
4. I usually try to ask musicians that I love for book recommentations, they tend to have really good taste...
5. 'The Familiar' by Mark Z Danielewski because it brought back curiosity into my life. (Tagged book)

I didn't go to mine...
The best series you're not reading. Briefly, the story of a little girl who finds a cat. But really so much more. It's the story of nine people whose lives are suddenly entangled. The first of proposed 27 volumes, One Rainy Day in May is a wonderful introduction. A must read for fans of Danielewski's other works, and readers of sci-fi, detective novels, YA, graphic novels and so much more will also find something they will enjoy. A worthwhile read
Pantheon Books canceled Mark Z. Danielewski‘s series The Familiar and broke my stupid, little heart. I encourage everyone who likes vibrant imagery with some real brain exercising prose to check out The Familiar and maybe we can get this series back on track.
I‘d been actively avoiding series books for years when I stumbled upon The Familiar and it sucked me back in. So far it‘s been a totally unique experience that‘s more satisfying the more you put into it. I just really hope the series gets completed. I did not jump back into this madness for nothing. 😂
Thank you for hosting this #giveaway @MinDea! I would really like to read His Dark Materials. 😃
1. The Familiar v. 6 by Mark Z. Danielewski
2. The Avengers: Infinity War
4. My boyfriend reads, but so incredibly slowly. He‘s been reading a 600ish paged book for the past 7 months, and he‘s still not done. 🙃 It hurts me a bit thinking of all the books he‘ll probably never get to. 😂😭
Thank you @Avanders for hosting this giveaway!
Right now I would most recommend One Rainy Day in May (TFv1) because it‘s an incredibly unique read. It‘s an interesting story on the surface and even more interesting the deeper you dig. There‘s also a really awesome community of TF readers on Facebook, and I thoroughly enjoyed rereading this book with them and getting to hear their thoughts on the series.
This was not my best reading year. However, I finished every classroom credit needed for my bachelors degree from April-December, with only 15 credits transferred over. So, while I hardly read for pleasure, I kicked ass in other areas. Hopefully 2018 brings more reading, when I‘m not student teaching, that is.
Excluding Harry Potter again because that‘s not even fair, my favorite series this year would have to be The Familiar. On top of just being a really interesting series, I also got to participate in a reading group for it which made the whole experience even better.
Fahrenheit 451 has been on my shelf all year, and I still haven‘t read it for some reason. 🤔
There are a lot of #CharactersWithCoolNames in The Familiar, but Xanther is by far my favorite. ❤️
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena is #SetInWinter.
And here‘s more of my tiny tree 🎄 for the #threeformegiveaway. Congrats on 3,000 followers @Tiffy_Reads!
I think Im too dumb for this book. I‘ll keep going, even so.
This book is.... Well... It's kind of odd, but in a good way. I really enjoyed this massive book. It's told from several different perspectives and each has its own font. It's really interesting the way it's all put together. Apparently, it will be a huge series, he's written up to 5 now, I have them all, but am only about half through the 2nd one.
I‘m currently in a book club for #TheFamiliar, so of course I‘d have to say The Familiar is great for a book club. There are so many things that I didn‘t pick up on when I read them on my own, so reading them with a group and getting to hear other people‘s thoughts and interpretations of things has really enhanced the reading experience so much for me.
I was torn between a 3 and 4 but I thought a 4 was more appropriate because, good lord, Danielewski definitely tried to make a uniquely experimental book of fiction.
You have to wade through a lot to get to the underlying story of a complex 12 year old girl's life. Is it really worth the effort? Could this book be so popular because of name recognition only or because it is really a good book?
You'd have to be the judge of that.
These are all of the books that I have checked out from my local public library right now... What was I thinking?!? #tbroverload
⠮ A good enough place to pause. ⠝ Today's THE FAMILIAR (VOLUME 1) Reading Group post is all about the Narcons, a favorite topic among TF readers. (And if you're not in the club, join us at www.facebook.com/groups/TheFamiliarBookClub!)
As we're introduced to them, who or what is a Narcon (p. 563) and what is its function? How does the description of the Narcons change your overall understanding of THE FAMILIAR (VOLUME 1)?

The reading club for THE FAMILIAR (VOLUMES 1-5) is happening now! Grab your copy of TFv1 and join us over in the official group page:
There will be discussions, prizes, cat photos, and Q&As with MZD. Prizes will go to those who participate the most, participate well, read hard, and go the distance. We'll be reading one volume per month leading up to the release of VOLUME 5 on Halloween!

The first volume of Mark Z. Danielewski's The Familiar is called One Rainy Day in May, and the text is arranged in all sorts of different ways (as it is in all his novels). I haven't picked up the next book in the series yet, but I really need to do that soon.
