Joined September 2016

When I'm not reading I write poetry and collect dragons.

I love getting books in the post! So excited to have finally found a book of Goran Simić's poetry! Looking forward to diving into Giraffe too.

Asylum | Sean Borodale

I love Sean Borodale. He's difficult and I often have to reread lines, but every now and again there's a straightforward phrase that hits you right between the eyes.

Ballard's writing is just awesome. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to reading him.

Larkinland | Jonathan Tulloch

I saw Jonathan Tulloch read from and talk about Larkinland this evening. I love the idea so much and his reading was funny, charming, and wonderful. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

Have I mentioned that my bookmark is awesome? I never really used bookmarks before because I just remember where I am but I go out of my way to use this one. Also the dangly fangs glow in the dark!!!

Born to Run | Bruce Springsteen

Up to now I was keeping up with my book-a-week plan, but this is taking forever and a day to finish! Springsteen's writing is lush and I'm really enjoying it, but it's somehow dense and it's put me way behind schedule!

This is absolutely the geekiest book I own and I love it. Using it now to provide a glossary for a pretty geeky poem.

When I really, really like a book (and I loved this one), I make a playlist for it. If you'd like, you can listen to the one I made for Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore here: http://8tracks.com/glimmerkin/mr-penumbra-s-24-hour-bookstore-1

Pickpick

THAT WAS SO GOOD. I'd have finished it in 24 hours had it not been such a busy time right now. I was totally gripped, and loved the writing style and the interweaving of the themes of books and new technologies, and the sense of adventure! This is one of the most "me" books I have ever read. This book and I understand each other. Thank you, Robin Sloan!

Myrren's Gift | Fiona Mcintosh

I have less than 200 pages to go but Myrren's Gift is taking some effort to finish! at 600+ pages each I don't think I'll be reading the following two books of The Quickening, but I've come too far to give up on this one now.

I watched Immortal Beloved last night for the first time and it inspired my next book choice! I bought this after listening to Rita Dove's Poetry Society Annual Lecture just over a year ago. Looking forward to starting it today or tomorrow.

As the first book in a long time that I've pulled off a shelf having never heard of it before or been told to read it, I'm enjoying this one so far. The writing is not brilliant but I'm really drawn by the characters.

'We too have been there; we can hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more.'

Rereading Peter Pan in preparation to write a series of poems. I love it even more than I remember!
