IIm so sorry I am absolute trash when it comes to reading. I have some issues re: dyslexia so it’s never been a strong subject of mine and i’m terribly boring when it comes to it. BUT OKAY
what im reading rn: aka the percy jackson series, which is SO charming and perfect for anyone who loves stuff like harry potter. They are much shorter, but the world is super vibrant and it’s a really, really good read.
non fiction: Under the Banner of Heaven which is written by the Into The Wild guy. It explores a few things: current abuse in FLDS compounds, an FLDS centered murder, and sort of deconstructs the history of mormonism. It was super fascinating. I’ve always liked cult stuff so FLDS was really interesting to read about.
Gig, which is a series of rants/talks from different people who work different jobs, from frycooks to CEOs.
ANY of the Conde Nast Travelers book of Unforgettable Journeys which is me being a total sucker for travel books.
A Long Way Gone which is the memoirs of a child soldier in Africa.
A Man Without a Country, which is my favorite Vonnegut (maybe partially because of it’s straight forwardness) Its an EXTREMELY SHORT book that sort of just details some random thoughts and beliefs he had that all sort of stem from critical Libertarian Socialist POV.
favorite book: The Tale of Desperaeux which is like, it for me. I was at such a dark dark point in my life suffering from such horrible crippling social anxiety and this book was the warm blanket that made me feel protected and happy.
THANK YOU FOR READING UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN
it’s a difficult read but sooooo interesting!!!
