>What have you read recently?
Pic is the books I've read so far this month.
>Favorite books you've read this year?
My favorite books that I've read are probably Illuminations by Arthur Rimbaud or My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh (the latter of which I liked a lot more than I thought I would).
>Books that you found memorable
A Season in Hell by Arthur Rimbaud and the Process by Brion Gysin.
>Books that you found bad (and why)?
I didn't find the book bad per se, but lacklustre. On the Road by Jack Kerouac, which supposedly is the Beatnik manifesto is underwhelming and leaves something to desire, especially the way he describes women as if they were mere objects instead of human beings. What I enjoyed about the book was his description of Joan Vollmer and Burroughs; that's the only part worth reading for me.

I'm rereading Fenrir by M. D. Lachlan right now.
>Favorite books you've read this year?
When God Was A Woman by Merlin Stone and Death and Burial in Ancient Egypt were so good. You know that feeling when you finish a book and all you want to read next is another book exactly like it?
>Books that you found memorable
Limiting to just the past year?
Right Wing Women. I finished it just in time for RvW.
Roar by Stacy Sims. It's really informative, I refer back to it all the time.
>Books that you found bad (and why)?
Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void. First chapter had the main character's internal narration go on a fanfiction-tier tangent describing her appearance and how attractive she is in the middle of talking to people. I quit the book immediately.

I'm still in my summer reading phase, and Sally Rooney is a blast.

>books read recently
Ana Karenina and The Three Comrades
>fave this year
I guess Three Comrades. I don't read often anymore unfortunately
>memorable books
East of Eden, Clockwork Orange, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
>bad books
I dunno, I don't continue reading a book that I am not in the mood to read at the time so it wouldn't feel right to label them bad

Considing starting Catch-22. Are there any potential fanfic fodder/close male relationships?

Anonymous 26574

>>26571
In the novel itself there's no relationship that are that close, but if we're talking purely as potential here there IS the matter of the chaplain and Yossarian… plus everyone has enough personality so that you can easily expand on your favorite ones

Chaplain pairing? I'm intrigued, this sounds very tickling of my thing for religious boys (Who are sadly too rare).

Ooh yay a book thread! Give me some recommendations for some Mexican American stories dealing with familial generational trauma?

>What have you read recently?
Read an old Shivers book (a Goosebumps competitor from the 90s, they're cute kid books) and a Stephen King novel, I've decided the man is a freak and I'm not a fan
>Favorite books you've read this year?
The Simple Wild, Tampa, The Smell of Other People's Houses, My Dark Vanessa
>Books that you found memorable
Tampa; Bunny; Valley of the Dolls
>Books you found bad (and why)
Nothing But Blackened Teeth, it was barely a horror story and tried way too hard to be woke; The Silent Patient, idk it just sucked and wasn't shocking; White Ivy, it had a nonsensical ending and the MC was very entitled and annoying

What have you read recently?
Gideon the Ninth, Harrow the Ninth, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire
Favorite books you've read this year?
Definitely the Locked Tomb (Ninth House) books!
Books that you found memorable
See above. Gideon the Ninth in particular
Books that you found bad (and why)?
Throne of Glass. Omfg. The author is so bad. By Heir of Fire, she's finally getting a little better, but this is a whole new level of Mary Sue. She's the chosen one…..she's also THE SECRET DOUBLE CHOSEN ONE! Also she romances ever fucking man she meets. My god.

I love the secret history! I read it recently and could not put it down until I finished it - wish I could find another book that sucks me in like that. I started Donna Tartt's other book, the little friend, but it's not as good so far.
