Over here it’s super cold (for my standards, anyway), so I have the perfect excuse to wrap myself up in my bunny blankie and watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina all weekend. It’s so dark and twisted. Nothing like the old series I used to watch when I was a kid. Aunt Zelda is actually proper evil. Love it! There’s also a graphic novel I discovered thanks to Book Beach Bunny.
I’m also totally lost in Zoo City. Eish! It’s actually less of a sci-fi than I expected and more of an urban fantasy, but it’s pretty entertaining, especially if you are as fascinated by South African slang as I am.
Have you ever thought about what a bookworm utopia would look like? If you haven’t, don’t worry, Lashaan has got you covered. He thought of everything I would want as a reader, including the banishing of the tiresome non-readers whose only purpose in life is to dish out unsolicited opinions about books they never read.
I don’t know about you, guys, but according to Marie’s post I’m a walking cliche for sure when it comes to being a bookworm. I have a massive pile of books (a.k.a. Mountain of Doom) I shamelessly hoarded within a few months, but haven’t touched yet. It only seems to grow in size and I spend a considerable amount of time on Instagram staring at pictures of books, which to most non-bookish people still seems like an odd thing to do. Like, my hairstylist found it absolutely bewildering that there are people who take pictures of books and post them there, while his Insta is full of pictures of hair.
Whether you are participating in Sci-Fi Month, or just looking for some old school classics, Alexandra’s list will be a great inspiration and starting point. I’m totally eyeing up The Number of the Beast.
I love it when I find a kindred spirit whose words are so precisely describe how I feel about certain things. Kaleena and I share a passion for science fiction, and all the books she recommended are right up my alley.
We might enjoy different kinds of books, but as Ova pointed out, reading is like dating, and I have to agree.
So, tell me. Who (what book) are you currently dating? Any remorse?
