    What books have to recently thread and what would you rate them?

    I just finished The Autobiography of Gucci Mane. I started it last night and finished it this morning. Haven’t slept yet. It kept me entertained the entire time.

  • Anyone like Red Riding? Or the lightbringer series by Brent weeks

  • Finished mortality by Hitchens the other day, last 15 pages are heart wrenching

    Going to start Blood Meridian today

    Looking forward to the blood Meridian update

  • Christmas Carol by Charles D***ens. Heard this one slaps, and it's a classic,
    Idk, his writing style ain't my thing but the book was alright I guess. Read Supermarket for the LOLs and stopped after chapter 6. No cap, it's genuinely a piece of s*** book, breaks every rule of writing including the most important "Show don't tell".Halfwayy through with Blood Meridian and I gotta say

  • Reading Underworld by Don Delillo. Loving it so far

  • Started reading The Martian by Andy Weir.

    Great book, have been meaning to read the others but yeah Hyperion is really dope or at least I think so. Got all 4 for like 4$ at goodwill

  • Been reading the Harry Potter series for about 2 months now. I used to be super into reading and grew up on Harry Potter, but I fell off of reading in high school, so I started over again and I’m on Order of the Phoenix now. Books still got the same magic that had me as a kid and I’m still blown away. Nothing quite like a good book.

    I remember when i was a kid, my pops took me to the book store to get a few new books to read. He ended up picking Harry Potter for me (when it first came out, before hype), and i vividly remember thinking to myself "I ain't bouta read this nerdy ass s***, with this nerdy looking dude on the cover" LOL. Boy was that your typical don't judge a book by a cover situation, because i ended up loving that damn book and series, and so did millions of other people

  • Is Red, White & Royal Blue really that great? It's 400 pages. I've never read a romance novel that long. I guess the only way to find out is to read the sample.

    There’s nothing like reading a book and finding sentences of quotes that really make you think.

    I got this except from the Gucci autobiography and it really made me think... sometimes even the simplest quotes surprise me

    “To start a new chapter you’ve got to turn the page on the last one. Still, every now and then I do think it’s okay to stop and look back, just for a moment, before continuing on your way. Especially when it’s a hell of a story.”

    I can really relate to that. Especially now that I’m trying to move forward in my life.

  • Finished two books in January.

    My Friend Anna: The True Story of a Fake Heiress by Rachel DeLoache Williams : Interesting true story and I like how it was written. Very personal

    Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami : It was good but kinda felt like it was dragging on

  • My next book is Midnight In Chernobyl which was on a lot of best of 2019 list

  • Just finished a dream of wessex. A beautiful clusterfuck about the unconscious, the ego and identity, whats really reality and its differences and similarites to fantasy,

    its also about sudden love and jealous possession, the fickleness of time.

    A great lil book rec’d by the late mark fisher.

    If u like sci-fi tinged romance this for u

    Halfway done with prozac nation. Recc’d by a poster. Really puts things into perspective. Depression sounds like a b****. I mean im bleak as hell but this woman is getting whiplashed by her own brain. S*** takes over your whole being. Its wild, her situation in this book is dismal as f***. Hope she finds something by the end.

    Plus the author died of breast cancer after all this. That f***in s***s

    edit: finished it. goddamn this woman was a mess as a youth. i wouldnt have enough empathy to deal with her s*** after a while. she was obssessed with her own depression. crazy how seductive such a negative emotion can be. glad she found contentedness with the ebbs and flows of life. the epilogue very prescient

  • Been slacking with my reading

  • Just finished american exceptionalism and American innocence. Due to a suggestion here and micheal parenti cosign.

    Great book outlining true facts. How we as a society have been blinded by the powers that be since the inception of their project. The book includes specific bills, events, stats and sources that back up their claims. I wholeheartedly agree and have since a little kid. also they s*** on black panther that film was always trash to me but i could never articulate why.

    Anyways, Hopefully one day our collective imagination will inspire a new world in which our progeny will thrive. But idk man we as the leading country in the world are pretty f***ing stupid ngl
