I'm not reading anything but I think I'm gunna re read spiritual graffiti by Mc yogi.
Great book about breaking the mold of drug addiction, rough upbringings, etc and also a really engaging story about spirituality. Also he is super humble which makes his reading more impactful I think.

I saw the widower, long and narrow, as though in flight, sit, patiently undoing the petit point on its stretcher, that lovely harmony of a mountain landscape swept away by the man’s reckless fingers; such was his skill (as though he’d done little else in life) and zeal in untangling the colored threads that soon that perforated skein displayed its natural tint — of soggy snow.

i’m reading Never Let Me Go. bland. easy to read. don’t remember how it ended up on my list, but i understand why. coming of age story featuring strong childhood friendships between female children.

title is from a song. like Let the Right One In, which is also a coming of age featuring strong friendship — albeit between a girl and boy.

My friend Tomie is dead. Pieces of her body were found everywhere.

I always thought that McCarthy was overrated personally. Just my personal preference but I don’t like writers who construct a large block of text that’s composed of a single sentence. Faulkner was another one who did massive sentences, I find it annoying.

He’s definitely a good/imaginative writer but people were losing their shit over that guy back in the day, I explored his stuff a little bit (“Blood Meridian” and “The Road”) but ultimately his writing style just isn’t for me

I have read All the Pretty Horses and also The Road multiple times. Back in the day? How many notches do you have on the kitchen wall? I get that it’s not your pleasure .. but I’m looking for something special, turn me on please.
