Kudos: A Novel | Rachel Cusk

Pickpick

I finally got around to this one. I read, I think on LitHub, that Jeff Vandermeer recommended this as a beach read and it got me to finally start it. Now that I've read it, it totally makes sense. Kudos is somehow an effortless read without sacrificing it's depth. Great writing.

Here is my Top 5 Character names, requested by @shadowspeak17 I wasn‘t sure if you were asking for my favorite characters or names I thought were the coolest, so I did both. The purple are my favorite characters, the red are the coolest names. I stuck with book characters for this as well!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: I had seen the movie, and this is my first Wolitzer. Her writing just swept me away. Really enjoyed revisiting this story in book form. #BookToFilm

Cathythoughts Great writing! I really enjoyed this book too 3d

i haven‘t been reading as much as planned, nor as active as i wished i‘d be by now on here. but so much has happened this summer. so many things i wasn‘t sure how to deal with, how to process... and somehow between all that, this was the best book i could pick up to put things within some kind of context and give them some kind of meaning...

"Even I have lied about writing. I have told people that writing this book has been like brushing away dirt from a fossil. What a load of shit. It has been like hacking away at a freezer with a screwdriver."

I‘ve been really enjoying reading fiction and non fiction pairs. I‘m equally enjoying shopping for them! #bookhaul

Palimpsest I like this idea. I read Frankenstein last fall and a biography about her recently that just added so much context to the story. I‘ve also recently read a few of Shirley Jackson‘s novels and so I‘ve stacked this. 😊 1w

eraderneely What an odd cover for The Lottery 1w
Soubhiville Oh cool! Are you reading this for #authoramonth? I think I‘m going with We Have Always Lived in the Castle. Mostly because I love the title 😊 and the creepy sickly looking people on the cover. 1w
Mitch @Soubhiville oh - I didn‘t see that it was Shirley Jackson this month! Happy coincidence and now glad I can ready along with you guys 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1w
Soubhiville Yay! I‘m curious about her life now, and what might have made her write so much dark stuff. You‘ll have to let us know about her ghosts. 1w

@AkashaVampie posted this lovely collage for Book Lovers Day!!! I thought it was perfect and the sunburn meme made me chuckle out loud! :)
Happy Book Lovers Day indeed!! I used to read obsessively when I was a young girl through high school and it could feel really lonely to not be able to share that magic with anyone else. Litsy is such a huge blessing now that I'm nearing my 30s. There are book lovers like me!! Love to you all!

AkashaVampie Thanks hun! 2w
SamanthaMarie @AkashaVampie Thank YOU for letting me use it 💕 also, can't wait to see your hair. I need to get mine cut. It has so many split and dead ends, oofda! 2w
AkashaVampie @SamanthaMarie U are so welcome. Thanks, I hope it comes out good. i've never really cut my hair myself before unless you count bangs. My hair is bad and i'm super cheap, so i am doing it myself. I keep looking up on youtube, videos that people did it themselves. And i look at it this way, i don't go out but to go grocery shopping and its just hair... it grows back! haha 2w
SamanthaMarie It totally grows back!!! But I've known many people who do exactly what you are doing, YouTube videos and the like, and it works!! So you've got this!! 2w
