I'm reading The Beguiled by Thomas Cullinan, because I saw the new movie. I have to read it fast, because the library wants it back in 10 days.

I never did finish Beren and Lúthien, but that's not a surprise.

I'm also reading Neil Gaiman's The View from the Cheap Seats, which is nice, short essays and therefore easy to sneak in around the other stuff I'm reading.

I'm reading Neil Gaiman's book as well. Quite a different one, though. As Marvel's "Ragnarok" will be released soon, so this is an opportunity to learn Norse mythology. Gaiman retells stories about Odin, Thor, Loki and other gods in his specific way (funny and captivating).

I'm reading (actually, I 've almost finished) a book written by a very popular Polish composer Krzesimir Debski. However "Nic nie jest w porządku" (eng. "Nothing is right") has nothing to do with music. In his book Debski described his family story: very sad, traumatic, full of pain and death. On July 11, 1943 in Debski's hometown everything changed after almost all people were killed by Ukrainian nationalists. This was only one episode of Volyn genocide (massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia). Thousands of civilians were slaughtered, shot, hanged, drowned, raped, burned alive ... total madness. It is hard to read ... and hard to believe that nowadays there are still people who trust ethnic political propaganda.

I'm reading Ecce Homo by Nietzsche right now... and either I am one of those people he talks about who are too stupid to understand his writing and feel therefore offended, or maybe the guy was just not a very nice person... who knows. I can only read it in single page steps... but it's pretty thin, so progress is good.

Also approaching page 200 of leviathan wakes. I am enjoying that very much, though i do fear that stopping after the first book might be a bit hard. We'll see about that.

Impatiently waiting for the 5th 'Expanse' book and cursing the person at the library who is always one book ahead of me. I found 'Leviathan Wakes' okay, but have really enjoyed the following books.

Until that arrives, Harry Potter re-read.

I'm reading Bite at First Sight, by Brooklyn Ann. It's the third novel in a series of vampire romances that are exactly as good (and, frankly, as much fun) as they sound.

I started a novel called Snow Child yesterday, but it opens with a description of a late-term pregnancy loss, and honestly, I don't think I want to keep going, no matter how good the blurbs are, or how cool it is that the author's name is Eowyn.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

I'm embarrassed to say ... After watching "Blade Runner" (1982) several times I've just started reading the book. BR2049 made me do it. Well, better late than never, they say. I'm in the middle of the story and I like it. It's different than the movie, more grim and apocalyptic.

I'm reading Something Red by somebody named Douglas. All the reviews told me I wouldn't be able to put it down once I started. After 100 pages it got interesting. If it weren't for the Tanith Lee blurb on the back I would have tossed it.

I'm also reading a collection of Beauty and the Beast stories edited by Maria Tatar.

I'm reading The Black Opera by Mary Gentle. It's long, but it's everything I love about opera without having to sit through one!

I finished the Tatar book, and I'm waiting for a book about martyred sisters in El Salvador to come in from the library.
