Alright, so this was supposed to come up a while ago, but I had to give away my laptop to the apple store, twice, and I couldn't do it. Now I will write here what I will read/ and already have read, actually, in November. No Movember for me, because I can't grow a mustache, at least not yet, I'll put more effort in, but as I am a woman it seems unlikely.
Anna Dressed in Blood is a book that I have already read. It's really good. It's about a ghost hunter, called Cas. His name is actually Theseus Cassio, which is the best name ever. He hunts ghosts and he goes to Canada to take down this ghost named Anna Korlov, or Anna Dressed in Blood, who is haunting this town in Canada. He meets her and he can't really bring himself to kill her. I really liked it, it has a very Supernatural (the TV-show) like, in the beginning. I haven't seen it lately cause I really wanted it to end after like season 3 or 4, but this book is like seasons 1 and 2 of Supernatural. I loved it.
I don't know why I'm giving it so much gusto. Anyways. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was the second book I read. I was taking a train back and forth to my hometown. And I had two train journeys of six hours each. Good reading time. I liked this book. I was worried, cause I'd heard so much about it and I worried it'd let me down. It didn't though. I like Charlie, he's obviously sort of damaged. The books is a series of letters written to an un-named "friend" from Charlie, which is a false name. He basically tells this friend what he is up to, his friends and his family, and first girlfriend. I liked it quite a lot actually.
Three French Hens!
And now I'm making it weird. I read Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. Uh. I liked it. The writing is sort of beautiful. I love both Will Graysons, I love the randomness of their meeting. I like Tiny. I like that they are all sort of fundamentally flawed, but that they learn and grow. I like the concept of the book. I like how being gay is a big deal and at the same time sort of nothing big. I like that they're comfortable. I just really liked it. Well done guys.
Four books of the Apocalypse!
I'm going with this theme of weird. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is the fourth book. I'm bloody excited about it. I think it's going to be fun. I like Gregory Maguire, I've read Wicked, and I think he's a brilliant writer. It's set in 17th century Holland and it's about Iris, who will become Cinderella's stepsister. I'm not entirely sure what the book is about, but I'm assuming it is a sort of retelling of Cinderella from Iris' point of view.
The Bookson (it's a horrible Jackson Five Joke, because I have to explain it) Five!
I will find a better joke for the next one. The Hobbit
. So my mum read me this when I was like, seven, maybe. I don't know. She read it to my sister and me, and I might have been older. Anyways. I am about as happy as a four-year-old getting cake about the movie. That's a bad sentence. I am really excited so I thought I'd reread the book. I read it myself when I was like 14. It's about a Hobbit, called Bilbo Baggins. He goes with 12 dwarves and a wizard, Gandalf, on a mission to see the dragon Smaug, and get the dwarves' gold back. I'm very excited and childish and I've started reading and it is awesome.
Six books under!
I don't know that that is better, but I did try. If I feel up to the challenge, and have the need to feel overworked, I'll try to squeeze in one more book. I'm not sure which book. I'm thinking maybe that I will read Deathless
by Catherynne M. Valente, she of the Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her own Making. The Girl who circumnavigated was awesome. And Deathless seems fun, I say fun. It seems interesting. It's based on this Russian folklore called Koschei. Koschei seems to be some sort of Witch or Devil or something and the book is about a girl named Marya who is supposed to marry the Koschei. I think it'll be fun.
