Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 4, SLIGHT-MID SPOILER 

@zephasaurus_hex the amount of lovecraft references was funny, when i saw someone with the last name innsmouth i felt like shouting at the screen for her to run

bent¢ent boosted

@heatherhorns i can't draw, at all but i still love art sqool, i have the soundtrack saved 'cuz i really like it!!

finally got around to readin' gaiman lately, finished good omens and american gods, does anyone have any suggestions for others i should read, please?

slightly mh adjacent poem i read 

one of the best phrases i've ever read, in "Space Struck" from Paige Lewis.
"I'm the vice president of panic, and the president's missing."
[line breaks condensed]

finally got around to readin' Good Omens, finished about half in one sitting. kinda regret not gettin' it earlier, really enjoying it!!

@lapis it's especially nice when you consider murakami is quite good, but writes some of his characters in...poor taste. this doesn't have that in the slightest, an' is super good!!

it was described to me, in part, as "gay murakami" and i wholeheartedly agree.

just started 'the stone gods' by jeanette winterson, really enjoyin' it so far!!

By the Book Podcast; witchcraft; alc mention in name of podcast 

@lapis a books podcast i've reallly been enjoyin' lately is 'drunk booksellers.' it's really good!! i've been listening to a lot of book podcasts lately now that i think about it.

sharin' my reading list, anyone have any reccs out of these i should put on top of my pile?
The Stone Gods (Winterson)
Bats of the Republic (Dodson)
Docile (Szpara)
Paradise Rot (Hval)
The City in the Middle of Night (Anders)

@lapis well i put it in quotes wrong so it looks like i'm doubtint they're a housekeeper, but my idea got through, i hope.

@lapis i picked up a copy of "the housekeeper" and the professor, but i gotta finish my "the dark descent" horror anth first.

just finished "revenge" by yoko ogawa, excellent "horror-ish" collection for spooky season. the book does get graphic, so be warned. i really enjoyed it, i've seen multiple people describe it as a "lethal ensnaring web" of a book, and after finishing it, i see how good that desciption is. i won't give spoilers, but the way the stories connect reminds me of silky threads.

@lapis 1001 Arabian Nights, and worst of all, I have seen the adaptation for youngs kids.

violence, books, bad pun 

i've always been confused as to why book comes before club in book-club. i know if i were to club someone i'd sure book it after.

shoutout to the person who responded "it'll be fun" when i told them not to follow any faerie lights they see into the stacks of books. too bad i didn't ever see them leave.

@lapis i like to go by the practice of (retail or just recc-wise) never telling someone not to read a book, just what i personally found notable about it. either they like it or they don't, and if they don't, know they're better versed it knowing the type of book they don't like.
