A biweekly post updated every other Wednesday detailing my current reading projects and what new titles I’ve added to my to-read list. Title links go to Goodreads, and if you have an account there feel free to friend me! I’d love to see what you’re reading and/or planning to read.
This…is not a happy story. It makes an important point that should lead to better outcomes, but it probably won’t. If recent events have taught me anything it’s that we as a species learn nothing from the past. I’ll more to say when I review.
Title: Snow White Learns Witchcraft: Stories and Poems
Author: Theodora Goss

So far this has been delightful. This is an author who, while I don’t know her personally, is connected by about only two degrees. She’s much farther along in her author journey than I am (or may ever be, but eh, that’s why we day drink). I just finished her take on Sleeping Beauty and the final line really sticks with me.
I am waiting, like you, for the canary to lift its head from under its wing, for the Empress Josephine to open in the garden, for a sounds that will tell us someone, somewhere, is awake.
I love double (and greater) entendres, and the hope that someone, somewhere is awake a call of a larger order than what it first appears.
Title: The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
Author: H. P. Lovecraft

I have to be almost finished with this. Friends of mine did make a good point/reminder when I complained about our boy HLP not getting to the point/showing the monster. That’s not what he does. He creates the atmosphere for your mind to fill the monster in…but does he have to take so bloody long???

To my extreme self-dissatisfaction I haven’t read a page of this in the past two weeks. Oof…I think it’s because I haven’t had the proper amount of time to devote to this breadth of storytelling.
Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018
What can I say but I’m kinda slacking in the reading department. I mean I did finish one novel, so I’m not doing that bad, but writing/editing has taken precedence.
