Chatterbox: Blab About Books

book log 2023
this is basically...

this is basically a reboot of Lupine's Monthly Book Log. if you don't know, what you do is post the names of the books you've read every month/week/whatever, and at the end of the year (if the thread doesn't die) you can see how many books you read that year. plus, you can get lots of book recommendations from other people's lists! if you want, you can include a bit of what you thought of each book, or its genres, or maybe how many stars out of five. do as much or as little as you like.

so, yeah! very simple in theory, but a cool idea. here we go. (happy new year, everybody :D)

I tried this once. I lasted for three months, I think—pretty impressive for me :) maybe I'll do better this time...?

I just finished a book called Ella Minnow Pea yesterday. It was really creative. I'd reccomend if you're interested in languages/English/society.

Cool! I'd forgotten about that thread, I think it died after a few months. We must keep this one alive!! I'll definitely post when I finish a book.

The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green. It's a young adult romance, unexpectedly philosophical, quite sad by definition of its premise. this was a reread; i received it for Christmas last year.

All the Crooked Saints, by Maggie Stiefvater -- wonderfully written, cool weird story, not my favorite book of hers but pretty good. i'd recommend.

Lord of the Flies, by William Golding -- quite dark and disturbing, of course. i realize now that this is probably a large source of inspiration for Lost.

The Princess Bride, by William Goldman -- the two William Gold-'s are just about polar opposites. this is funny and fantastical and odd.
