The Reading Forecast

If last week I read too much, this past week, I barely read. Maybe it was because I overdid things or maybe I just didn’t feel like it or even maybe because I’m having too much fun with kdramas to care about reading. I don’t know. Still, I did read some things. Let me tell you what they were.

  1. Micrographica – Renee French
    The weirdest little graphic novel I’ve ever read.
  2. Jerusalem – Guy Delisle
    A graphic traveling memoir. Very sombre in tone though there are flashes of humour from Guy.
  3. Dark Sparkler – Amber Tamblyn
    The series of poems focusing on the dead personalities was impressive. When she gets personal however, we get melodrama so that wasn’t too fun.
  4. A Pornography of Grief – Philip Huang
    Parts brilliant, parts disturbing. I don’t know how I felt about this one.
  5. The Thickety: The Whispering Trees by J. A. White
    Would have been more brilliant had some elements not been included. Ah well.

I’m reading a whole bunch right now.

  1. Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami
    I’m liking this one quite a bit.
  2. Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed
    I am still only 30 pages in but I don’t mind reading this slowly as I am really liking it.
  3. The Poet Slave of Cuba by Margarita Engle
    This is a novel in verse and tbh, I haven’t actually begun it. I’m going to though.

Books I Will Add to the Reading List:

  1. The Hanged Man by P. N. Elrod
    I want to read this now.
  2. Elena Vanishing – Clare and Elena Dunkle
    I think I just need to gird my loins and jump in. The more time that passes without me reading this, the less likely it becomes that I will read it. The book is going to be traumatic.
  3. Eolyn – Karin Rita Gastreich
