This is so brutal. So brutal. And here I am. Eating a pizza without a care in the world.

The London Satyr | Robert Edric
post image

I‘m probably the first person to mention this book on Litsy. It‘s all about Victorians being hot and bothered and repressed.

Autumn | Ali Smith

It‘s definitely autumn in a full swing in London. We drink hot tea and wrap up to save up on the heating. This is a perfect book companion.

Ghosts of the Tsunami | Richard Lloyd Parry

This is harrowing. I cried on the train today.

This book is about the state of feminism and women‘s rights in Poland. Originally published in 2001, this is the new edition from 2008 and the author laments that things have deteriorated. If only she knew how much more they would deteriorate by 2017. ☹️. (This is also way too much food for one person‘s brunch)

Saga: Book One | Brian K. Vaughan

I loved it so much. I‘m too poor to buy book two now but ahhh if I could only get my hands on it. It‘s an absolutely bonkers and touching story taking place in an entirely made up universe full of spaceships and magic and robots. There is love and war and sex and jokes

Wake | Lisa McMann

Mehso-so

A really interesting premise (the main character gets sucked into other people's dreams) but the plot really fizzled out quickly. The whole thing lacked proper narrative and was put together from little snippets, which did convey the choppy quality of dreams but did not make for a good novel. The story was really far-fetched and I don't mean the dream catching part but the part that was supposed to be realistic.

The Sheltering Sky | Paul Bowles

This is how I like to start my day. I'm going to dedicate the entire Sunday to this book so it'd better be good.

Augustdana I don‘t know what it is about this book, but i love it. I hope you enjoy 5y

Right. This is going to take a while.

Hysteria | Megan Miranda

Friday evenings are for light and undemanding reads. This caught my attention - a story about a girl who supposedly killed her boyfriend but she doesn't remember a thing.

You guys need to read this book. But it's gonna make you mad. I'm only a third in but really going to town with my index post-its. That chapter on Walmart...

Only so long can you be in the head of a sex offender before somehow starting to emphasise... 😬

Fascinating. Even if sometimes way 'too accessible'

Ammar25 I'm getting a copy of his next book Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow this week. 6y

Taking bets on what I'm going to drop in the bath first - my phone or this 700 page hardback. I will start writing a diary again. I'm inspired. I'm sure my thoughts are relevant too.

This time I'm doing it right. No meat. I'm being slightly put off meat by this book. Thanks a lot. Just in time for BBQ season.

The Vegetarian and chicken teriyaki bento. Because I'm such a contrarian.

The Sellout: A Novel | Paul Beatty

Yeah. Pain au chocolat and a mango smoothie for dinner. Because I'm an adult and can do what I want! My friend told me that 'Sellout' reminded her of my writing style. Let's see if that's a good thing or bad thing.

Waiting for Tesco delivery (i.e. Breakfast) and reading to forget about hunger. This collection is not exactly what I hoped it would be but Still Life by Vinicius Jatoba is really good. Other stories seem derivative and boringly middle class.
