What I've been reading recently (in pictures)

Almost 4 months ago, most of my pics on Facebook were food pics. Then this happened. So good-bye, cupcakes! Good-bye, deep-fried pork belly! Good-bye, bacon and butter!

Then I realized that I still have been posting pictures on my Facebook account. But this time, they're all about the books that I've been reading. Not a bad trade-off, I think.

So I'm sharing them with you, dear reader. They're not technically selfies, as I forced asked a colleague at work to take them. Sometimes, it's good to ham it up for the camera, no?

D. H. Lawrence's Women in Love is a favorite read.
And The Rainbow is actually it's prequel.
Brangwens, we meet again!
I love them Russians. I feel that Dostoevsky is the most Russian of them all.
I've read Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov.
I loved both. And I'm loving The Idiot.
I've never read H. P. Lovecraft, much as I love horror.
Unfortunately, I had to drop The Call of Chthulu and Other Weird Stories.
I just found it too, well, weird.
Rachel Joyce's Perfect is alnost a perfect novel, if ever there was one.
It's a heartbreaking read about familial bonds.
I'm a fan!
Robert Rodi writes hilarious gay-themed novels.
Closet Case is no exception.
I found it a bit dated though, but it's still enjoyable.
How about you, dear reader? What have you been reading?

Oh, I haven't read an Ed McBain novel yet, Ram! I will Google to check if I'll like his kind of books! Thanks!

I can't say that I don't miss the cupcake posts (with the monsters), but I have to say "two thumbs up" for all your hard work in avoiding them. And your book selfies are always a welcome sight. :)

Hello, Louize! I miss the monsters myself! And, some days, I do miss the cupcakes. Hehehehehe.

A nice piece of work! I'm sorry you couldn't get into Lovecraft. He does get pretty strange, though. I've been reading indie steampunk authors. I started that to support my colleagues, but found that the fresh ideas and styles are incredibly entertaining. Right now I'm reading The Volcano Lady be T.E. MacArthur. It's a fun read I highly recommend, if you ever want to try some 'punk!

Peter S. said...

Yup, very strange and weird. Hard to swallow sometimes, Lovecraft is. Maybe on a long weekend. Someday, someday...

I'm also on the lookout for local steampunk here in Manila, Jack. Not very many choices.

Hi Peter,
Sorry to hear about your "visit" to the hospital. I've been lurking but not doing too much commenting.

I read Perfect, but the others weren't on my radar. They are now. Stay well, and keep up the good reads.

Thanks, Tina!
