Current TBR Pile #20


My TBR is like my disgust for Donald Trump. It never stops increasing.

Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan


This looks amazingly well-written, and I love the concept of a civilization finding out their gods are killable.

Vittorio, the Vampire by Anne Rice


Does Vittorio ever appear in The Vampire Chronicles?

No.

Do I have any idea who he is?

No.

Or why I should care about him?

No.

But am I trash for all Anne Rice's vampire stories?

YES.

A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston


Like Renee Ahdieh's The Wrath and the Dawn, this is a retelling of Thousand and One Nights. The writing style in this one looks absolutely gorgeous, and I LOVE the storytelling choice of never revealing the main character's name. I may end up liking it more than The Wrath and the Dawn??

The Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman


This short mystery/cop novel isn't something I'd usually read, but my grandma gave it to me for my birthday with fervent recommendation. I've loved the last two books she rec'd me, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan and The Martian by Andy Weir, so I'm going to give this one a try!

Mexico City Blues by Jack Kerouac


Because I am cOMPLETE AND UTTER KEROUAC TRASH. This one is actually on its way right now, and I'm super excited to FINALLY have my own copy of what I consider the greatest poetry collection of one of America's greatest poets.

Heaven Water Blood by N.L. Shompole


This is another poetry collection, this one by the author of Lace Bone Beast and Other Fairytales for Wicked Girls, one of my favorite ever poetry books. N.L. Shompole is such a fantastic writer, and I genuinely don't understand why she's not more well known.

  4. I haven't read any Anne Rice books since she renounced and then un-renounced the Vampire Chronicles, but I loved Vittorio, the Vampire when it first came out. Hope you like it!
