“Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
– George Orwell,
“I don’t really think about the audience during my sex scenes. Getting naked feels better some days than others. (Good: when you are vaguely tan. Bad: when you have diarrhea.) But I do it because my boss tells me to. And my boss is me.”
– Lena Dunham,
Not That Kind of Girl
I haven’t read a good poetry book in a really long time. Then, I stumbled upon Tyler Knott Gregson’s Chasers of the Light: Poems from the Typewriter Series. I encourage anyone with a love of poetry and photography to buy this book. It’s. So. Good. It has easily become one of my favourite books.
Check it out here. Or here.
Happy reading, friends!
A friend of mine challenged me to complete this list. I challenge anyone who comes across this page. I would love to hear of your favourite books.
Here is the challenge: “List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way and tag ten people to do the same. Don’t take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They don’t have to be the “right” books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way.”
