I‘m a huge fan of legend adaptations, so of course I‘ll read another adaptation of Journey to the West. Naturally, this made me nostalgic for manga I read as a teen line Saiyuki that also adapt this story. This has a fun balance of silly & serious. I laughed when Genie didn‘t react to Sun Wukong‘s identity reveal. I picked this up because I loved Yee‘s work in the Avatar novels & because I needed a local author read for #ReadingWithMaja @maich

Kenyazero I used this for Mimikyu: someone isn‘t what they seem in #GottaCatchEmAll @PuddleJumper 7d

This book I grabbed from the book sale. Grove Press was founded in 1947, known for international works & being the first to publish in the U.S.books formally deemed obscene by censors. Think Henry Miller & D.H. Lawrence. I didn‘t know this author, apparently Khrushchev wasn‘t thrilled w/him, but during the Cold War “thaw” Voznesensky was able to travel. A strong collection that carries a mid century vibe.

maich An interesting decision💕 1w

A sad and dark #poetry collection but I like it. Poems about loneliness anxiety hearbreak... Some of them was written in 2020 during lockdown.
We always need to say that we are okay. But are we really okay? That is the question the writer ask us.

I loved this thriller. 2 secret agents (one slovenian and one from the UK) trying to solve international business crime in Ljubljana. Author is tv presenter and comedian. You can find his comedian side in the book.

I found this short #sci-fi #novella on #amazonkindle and really enjoy it. It was interesting gothic and a little scary. A pageturner for me🫨 the end was shocking.

Read 1 poetry bk. per month.
Houses
Time & the weather wear away the houses our fathers built.Their ghostly furniture remains:All the sad sofas we have stained with tears of boredom & guilt,
The fraying mottos,the stopped clocks..& still sometimes these tired shapes haunt the damp parlors of the heart.
What Sunday prisons they recall,& what miraculous escapes !
