For intowhiteness

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them

1. The Secret History - Donna Tartt

2. The Ballad of Lee Cotton - Christopher Wilson

3. Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides

4. Kafka on the Shore - Haruki Murakami

The Master fucking hates Scotland. He fucking hates it, and as he limps into the Edinburgh police station with a mangled leg and some blood that isn’t his on his hands, slams them down on the counter, and glares at everyone in the vicinity, he decides he hates it even more than he did two minutes ago.

“There’s a fucking cannibal and she tried to eat me. Dairy farm out in the middle of fucking nowhere with the grumpy ginger? Grumpy ginger got my leg caught in a damn bear trap and then tried to attack and eat me,” he announces. “And no, I don’t want to make a report. This is my good fucking deed for the day. Consider it an anonymous tip,” he snarls, then storms out, muttering about how he’s never coming back to this country again.
