Living With A Bookworm #1

Living with a bookworm. Expectation: person says 'Hey--' to comic-me who is reading surrounded by bookshelves and hisses 'SILENCE IN THE LIBRARY' at them. Reality: comic me gets a vibes, looks over sees other person reading, slithers along the ground, sneaks behind the couch, pops up yelling 'WHATCHA READING?'

    I have discovered Steven King, after years of refusing to have anything to do with him. I don’t like horror, but I’d heard that the covid situation was reminiscent of The Stand, so … It’s really good! Only occasionally gruesome, mainly a powerful story about well developed characters dealing with a frightening (and worryingly real) situation.

      I enjoyed The Stand! I read it a couple of years ago and particularly the beginning part with the flupocalypse. I’m not 100% I would find it quiiiiite as fun now (but then I did re-watch Contagion after the pandemic and enjoyed that, so who knows).

    I am reading The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells. A sarcastic machine, what could be more delightful!

      I LOVE Murderbot! I read the first one the other month, and it was just amazing. So keen to get onto the rest of the books at some point.

      I’d never heard of her, but I just looked her up and I really enjoy old-school murder mysteries, so I will have to look out for her books now!

        I enjoy the vicarious rich person lifestyle fallen on hard times but still having servants and big houses in the country aspect. Kind of time travel. Plus appealign characters and always a little romance. I just finished The Swimming Pool, which I think is my favorite. I also like The Album.

          That sounds like exactly something I would find very comforting.

            I also like the books of Mignon G. Eberhart. There is a series with Nurse Sarah Keating and then quite a few standalone mysteries. And then there is Christianna Brand, I recommend Green For Danger. I could go on and on, I love this type of book.

    Hahaha this is like me. Whenever I see people with books, I have a compulsion to find out what they’re reading. If it’s someone I know, I’ll ask. If it’s a stranger at a cafe/ on the bus/ wherever, I try to glance surreptitiously at their book.

    I’m currently still reading Albert Camus’ “The Plague” (pandemic-related reading seems really popular these days), and re-reading “The Hobbit” (to get a break from all things pandemic and real-life related!)

      Pandemic-related reading does seem popular! I’m also re-reading comforting books along with new reads to take the edge of the world.

    Well that’s terrifying! Haha. FYI, The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M Auel. Unless the light in the bedroom is turned off early by a certain someone wanting to go to bed (who’d do that?) in which case I’m working through a HP Lovecraft anthology on my Kindle ;)

      I’ve heard of The Clan of the Cave Bear, but I have not read it myself. I do also have an anthology of Lovecraft I’ve mostly worked through. Sometimes mind-shattering weird is just the thing.

      Thank you so much! I’m honoured that you nominated. I don’t, however, accept these style of awards. It’s just that the acceptance posts don’t fit my style of writing, so they stick out like a sore thumb on my site. I will answer your questions over on your post though. Again, I super appreciate that you thought of me.
