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.
Title: Snow White Learns Witchcraft: Stories and Poems
Author: Theodora Goss
Date Added: February 5, 2019
Date Started: May 5, 2019
My favorite story so far is Blanchefleur and that’s not just because I love cats.
Title: The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
Author: H. P. Lovecraft
Date Added: March 15, 2013
Date Started: May 9, 2019
This story almost seems like it’s trying to pinpoint the place where sanity ends and insanity begins and finds it’s not that simple of a question. The idea is Ward’s European trip was the beginning of his madness, but Dr. Willett refused to concede that point, and you really can’t. It’s not so much a switch as a continuum. This is going to be so useful in my FFVII essays…
Author: Guy Gavriel Kay
Date Added: February 9, 2016

I want to read everything this man has ever written.
Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018
I got to the most important part:
“The Kabbala represents the process of creation as a series of emanations or sephiroth out of the I AM of The Great Face.” Yassss bitch.
I’m one book behind schedule in my challenge, which is fine. I’m sure I’ll catch up. I’m almost finished the Lovecraft and nearly 90% on Tigana, though that could still be a few weeks out. That novel is like a rich meal. You can’t devour it too quickly otherwise it’ll be a waste.
What’s the longest it’s ever taken you to finish a book?
