book-discussion

We read books together and discuss the problems together with experts from each field. It’s true that we still lack a lot but we believe that we can grow by listening to criticisms and by thinking. We will humbly accept criticisms and accept to improve.

Thought I’d drop this here, especially considering what’s been going on lately.

I know the prop design and little allusions to the books are amazing in the show, but look at this. We see Beatrice’s letter to Lemony in TMM pt2:

it reads as follows:

Book Discussion Challenge Day 2
Prompt: Animal
I spent a long time trying to think of my favourite book about animals, or with an animal as a character, but I simply couldn’t, because I kept being interrupted in my thoughts by this gal, ^^ Laila!
She’s my reading buddy, and my hot water bottle, and as essential as a good cup of tea when I sit down to have a good long reading session. When it comes to books, she’s the only animal I need.
Do you have an animal reading buddy? Tell me about them!

Book Discussion Challenge || Jan 5 || Female Author

Sarah Waters is a Welsh author, best known for her novels set in Victorian society and featuring lesbian protagonists. I only just found out about her last year, and I’m so glad! She’s already turning out to be one of my favourite authors.

I’ve so far read only two of Waters’s books: Tipping the Velvet (1998) and Affinity (1999), of which Tipping the Velvet was one of my favourite reads of 2016. The next one of her books I’m going to read is Fingersmith (2002), which is already waiting on my shelf, and I also can’t wait to get to read the rest of her novels – The Night Watch (2006), The Little Stranger (2009), and The Paying Guests (2014).

I love reading historical novels, especially if they feature queer protagonists, and Waters’s novels have premises that sound absolutely fascinating to me. Plus, Waters’s writing is beautiful, descriptive, and full of details (exactly the kind that I love the most!).


Have you ever read any of Sarah Waters’s books? What did you think? Who are your favourite female authors?

What newbies think Heathenry is: It’s like any other Pagan tradition, but with more drinking and manliness.

What Heathenry actually is: Constant vigilance. A game of “spot the racist”. A mountain of unread books. Arguments. Discussions regarding which deity is gayest. Everything eventually becoming a conversation about Odin. “I started with one deity and now there are twelve help???”

Book Discussion Challenge

12/1 - Beginnings

I read The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger late last year, because I LOVELOVELOVE Stephen King and I found paperbacks of the first three in the series at a library book sale.

I have all seven now, thanks to more library sales and Thriftbooks, but I haven’t read any of them yet. One of my goals for 2017 is to reread this one and read the rest.

I know I few people who started the series ages ago and never finished, because they’ve been published over so many years–but has anyone out there finished the series? Am I in for a wild ride or a tedious one?

IS NO ONE ELSE DESPERATE TO KNOW IF DORIAN EVER FINISHED THE SMUTTY BOOK, "SUNSET'S PASSIONS", THAT CELAENA GAVE HIM IN TOG?!? BECAUSE I SURE AM!!!!!!
Booklr Discussion: Bookish Pet Peeve

100 Days of Booklr: 21 of 100

I don’t find myself having too many pet peeves when it comes to books. I have issues with authors that fail to use at least a semblance of proper grammar or friends that don’t return borrowed books. But for real pet peeves I can’t think of anything right now that truly bothers me.

Do you have any bookish pet peeves?

A concept

Namjoon lowkey doing book recomendations once in a while. He just casually starts talking and then shows some book he is reading at the moment and talk a little about it. Since I like some of the same books Namjoon likes, I’m pretty sure he reads some interesting stuff that we don’t know.
