“From my childhood I have been,’ said I, ‘the object of the untiring goodness of the best of human beings; to whom I am so bound by every tie of attachment, gratitude, and love, that nothing I could do in the compass of a life could express the feelings of a single day.”

Excerpt From
Bleak House
Charles Dickens

In the mood for some fiction. Nonfiction has been too depressing lately for me to read. There's enough depressing things going on in the world right now, I don't need to add to it by reading about history and politics. 😆

"About his large bright eyes that used to be so merry, there was a wanness and a restlessness that changed them altogether. I cannot use the expression that he looked old. There is a ruin of youth which is not like age; and into such a ruin, Richard’s youth and youthful beauty had all fallen away.”

Frage zu #Bookwyrm 📚 :

Es gibt ja bereits zahlreiche thematische Listen bspw. https://tomes.tchncs.de/list

Die meisten sind auch als öffentlich/ open definiert, d.h. "Alle können #Bücher hinzufügen" (ich nehme an alle mit Bookwyrm-Account, oder nur von der jew. Instanz?)

🧐 Ich finde aber die Option nicht, wie ich nun ein Buch einer passenden Liste hinzufügen kann (auch in der Doku leider nix)

Weiß jmd, wie das geht?

Ooh! Books from the Fediverse! Thanks! (now... to focus and get enough time to read these before tucking them in the free library outside...)

Yes by Gods, it’s another book.

Henri Lefebvre’s Critique of Everyday Life, and a bowl of cherries.

Finished “I Cheerfully Refuse” by Leif Enger & LOVED it. It’s so many things, but at its core, it’s a dystopian novel, dealing with grief, loss, and yet hope.

Enger’s prose, like all really compelling art, deals in the dynamics of contrast, the necessary tempo, an awareness of when restraint is required, and the occasional flourish. I found myself rereading certain passages because they were written so beautifully, so unexpectedly, so perfectly.

5/5 stars

Two thumbs up for @aptshadow's Alien Clay.

I don't think I've found a single bad book of his but this one is right up with the best of them.

After a near death experience, one woman creates her "reverse" bucket the things she wants to do after death.

From New York Times bestselling author Julia London comes an uplifting and heartwarming story of second chances and the power of finding out what makes life worth truly living.

sounds (well, you know what I mean) like a very interesting book. Saw the Swedish edition, as well as the second in the series (in English) in the shop today. I have a mile high TBR pile, so I never brought them home.

I should have, shouldn't I?

Currently reading by and enjoying it.

Just finished by , and loved the whole series.

I finally Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero. Been meaning to get to this one for actual years now. Scooby Doo meets cosmic horror with a healthy dose of humor thrown in. A bit like what Laird Barron did with the Hardy Boys in X's For Eyes, but without the hard-boiled tone of all of Barron's work.

I love book recommendation lists but they often tend to upset me. My favorite kinds of lists are either international lit (where I am usually upset that there are not enough women represented) or books by non-male folks (where I am upset that it's often mostly English-writing folks).

So: here is a list of my personal recommendations of books by women in (English) translation. One book for every day of June. Feel free to join - doesn't have to be every day!

Maryna (and Serhiy) Dyachenko - "Vita Nostra"

For everyone who loves mindbending speculative fiction or linguistics. Or both. And no, it's not just for folks like me for whom languages are a hobby - my Latin grammar PhD friend loved it, too (wink)

I've seen it advertised 'Harry Potter'-like. No. There is nothing similar except for a boarding school of sorts. Emphasis on "of sorts".

It's deep, it's clever.

(Independent of two other novels in the cycle)
