So now do you see why books are hated and feared? They show the pores in the face of life. The comfortable people want only wax moon faces, poreless, hairless, expressionless. We are living in a time when flowers are trying to live on flowers, instead of growing on good rain and black loam. Even fireworks, for all their prettiness, come from chemistry of the earth. Yet somehow we think we can grow, feeding on flowers and fireworks, without completing the cycle back to reality. Do you know the legend of Hercules and Antaeus, the giant wrestler, whose strength was so incredible so long as he stool firmly on the earth? But when he was held, rootless, in midair, by Hercules, he perished easily. If there isn’t something in that legend for us today, in this city, in our time, then I am completely insane.

i know this is your book blog but i was wondering what shows you like to watch

I watch too many shows, honestly. Right now, I’m watching Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Orphan Black, and The 100. I also watch loads of kdramas and I’m keeping up with Angel Eyes, Doctor Stranger, Hotel King, and Witch’s Romance. (Though I’m probably going to drop two of those.) Yesterday, I finished both seasons of Darker than Black

Hi there! My friends and I are going to California this summer and we are looking for some novels taking place there, do you have any recommendations?

Hi! I immediately thought of John Stienbeck. His books, Of Mice and Men, Eden of the East, The Grapes of Wrath, and others, take place in California. I’d also suggest: The Luck Joy Club by Amy Tan, The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, The Faith Healer of Olive Avenue by Manuel Munoz, Invasion of the Body Snatchers by Jack Finney, The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon, and House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. I’d also suggest looking at this list for more suggestions. 

My followers suggested Anything by Ken Nunn and Play It As It Lays by Joan Didion.

I remember you vaguely talking about reading manga. I was just wondering what you've read.

Hi, I honestly haven’t read that much. The ones I’ve actually finished are a lump sum of two, No. 6 and Ouran. I’m keeping up with five that are currently publishing right now. They’re mostly shoujo. I’m planning on starting some more this summer.

One night she came back from her daily walk stunned by the revelation that one could be happy not only without love, but despite it.
