This is a breathtaking collection about, among other themes, growing up, being a woman, and fairytales. Highly recommend.

Current obsession. To the extent that I just ordered a book of Russian fairy tales.

My a second BookTubeAThon book. This was a chilling play about black rage in 1920s Chicago set in a recording studio over the course of one afternoon.

Y'all. The characters in this book are making me have so many feelings just by being them. I'm not even mad about the US cover being ugly anymore because it has a picture of their patchwork ship on the cover. 😍

My June Wrap-Up will hopefully be up on my channel tomorrow, but here's a sneak peek. Not a bad book in the bunch.

Partner: Did you finish that book?
Me: I want to live inside of it.
Me: *looking longingly at book* How can I live inside of you?!

...that kind of book.

Cataluna6 Sound like I'm going to have to pick up a copy of this. 3y

and then the thought of that one gift which it was death to hide--a small one but dear to the possessor--perishing and with it myself, my soul--all this became like a rust eating away the bloom of the spring, destroying the tree at its heart.

Mark Strand is amazing. Possibly my favorite poet. This collection is a great sampling of his huge body of work.

This was very strange and left me with a lot to think about. I enjoyed it overall, but feel like a few things just didn't add up.

I could've read this story forever. It kept me up way past my bedtime.

Fiction's nice. Fiction lets you select and simplify. This isn't a nice story, and this isn't an easy story. But it is a story about fairies, so feel free to think of it as a fairy story. It's not like you'd believe it anyway.

This was really cool, a little weird, profound, and moving. Definitely worth the hype.

The Argonauts | Maggie Nelson

This book was so much more than I ever expected it would be. It was an intensely personal narrative which leant itself to a very intimate reading experience. I know it is something I will revisit again and again.

My writing is riddled with tics of uncertainty. I have no excuse or solution, save to allow myself the tremblings, then go back in later and slash them out. In this way I edit myself into a boldness that is neither native nor foreign to me.

At the same time, every word that I write could be read as some kind of defense, or assertion of value, of whatever it is that I am, whatever viewpoint it is that I ostensibly have to offer, whatever I've lived.

Started this last night and couldn't put it down. Really intriguing characters!
