Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Golden Compass | Philip Pullman

When I was younger, this was one of my favorite books. It‘s been about 20 years since I‘ve read it though. I‘ve also never read the other two novels in the trilogy.

I Am Legend | Richard Matheson

I was kind of disappointed with this one. I ended up reading the whole thing in one day. I‘ve seen the movie based on it once, and it was a long time ago, so I don‘t really remember it. I‘m going to hold off on reading the short stories included at the end of the book.

This book is combined with short stories. I‘m not sure if I‘ll read those right after, but I‘m at least reading the main novel.

Legion | William Peter Blatty
post image
Pickpick

Blatty‘s novels are always interesting. While reading, I kept thinking that some scenes seemed so unnecessary. Long pointless dialogue, overly descriptive narrations. Everything ends up making sense later in the novel. I haven‘t seen the movie. I‘ve seen The Exorcist, of course, but it‘s been awhile.

My current nightmare. I bought a new bookshelf so I could replace a very old one I‘ve been using. I removed it and put all those books on the one I‘m keeping. This is what it‘s going to look like until I build my new one. I‘m dying.

It‘s 2am, so I probably won‘t start this until after I wake up for the day. But this will be my next book. I loved The Exorcost, so I definitely wanted to try another novel by Blatty. Also, I definitely thought they‘d accidentally sent me a VC Andrews book when I first opened the package 😂

I could not put this book down. I read most of it while I was at work. As soon as I got home, around 12:30am, I continued to read it. This was after I added a few things I‘d ordered to my earthquake kit. (A 7.1 hitting less than 150 miles from my house was a wake up call.) It‘s so creepy. This could be a real story. It‘s not vampires or dead things coming back to life. It‘s a creepy stalker.

This book is so unnerving! Just the fact that what is happening to this kid could actually happen. Holy crap. I can‘t stop reading. I‘m on page 113 and that‘s just what I‘ve managed to read at work so far tonight. Good thing the phones are quiet! I probably won‘t sleep tonight until this book is finished.

This book was definitely interesting. Sometimes I felt like I was losing interest and then something sucked me back in. It‘s weird. But that‘s Palahniuk‘s style.

I‘m a bit over 100 miles away from the epicenter but we‘ve been getting a few shakes the last couple days! Ridgecrest is getting hit pretty good with all these aftershocks. I really hope everyone is okay over there. That 7.1 they just had was pretty bad. I work at a hotel and everyone is calling wanting to cancel their reservations. All those markers are individual earthquakes from the past couple of days.

Another crocheting project putting a dent in my reading time. I read for a bit last night but I feel like I‘m coming down with something. I went to sleep early since I had work at 7am. I don‘t know if I‘ll be going to work tomorrow. 😷

Johanna414 Do you ever listen to audiobooks while you crochet? 2w
LiterarySloth @Johanna414 I‘ve tried listening to audiobooks. I just can‘t get into them. When I try to focus on more than one thing at a time, I feel like I‘m not putting enough effort into whatever I‘m doing. I even tried driving and listening to audiobooks and couldn‘t focus on the book. 😭 2w
Johanna414 That makes sense - I never used to be into audiobooks for the same reason. I think being a mom has made me better at multitasking... need to make the most of any alone time I get! 😂 2w
LiterarySloth @Johanna414 haha that would help! I try to plan what I do based on the time of day. During the day, I‘ll usually crochet and watch tv. At night or at work, I read. It‘s been too hot lately to crochet during the day though. 2w

I finally had a chance to finish this. I sometimes had a hard time reading it at night. It gave me some weird dreams. Not nightmares, just weird. It‘s creepy. I can‘t say for sure if I believe this particular story but I definitely believe it‘s possible.

I don‘t want this book to end. Finishing this means I have no more Hosseini novels to read. Although, I do have Sea Prayer. I‘m a little more than halfway through. 56% according to goodreads. I‘m so happy my literature class was assigned A Thousand Splendid Suns to read. I may have never picked up one of his books.

Dancing on the Edge of the Roof is such a great book. I was looking through my books on goodreads to see if any had a low amount of ratings. This one has less than 500! There is also a movie on Netflix called Juanita, which is based on this book. #day3 #30junebooks #underrated
