What is this I don't even.

I've decided that I shall have to track down quipquipquip and force Suikoden III on her like a venereal disease. She will probably fall asleep before we get to the good parts.

But for the important part of this post!! I decided for one of my resolutions I am going to try to read more books, because I've fallen out of the habit. So help me, Flist-wan Kenobi!! Vous êtes ma seule espérance!! Give me book recommendations.

I will try any book once: I am a loose woman of literature. But, here's a helpful list, of like, ideas. Feel free to ignore and just recommend that book you recommend to everybody. You know the one.

  • Left to my own devices I will pick Novels of a Certain Length that usually predate Hemingway. I revel in verbosity and grandiose yet impractical sentence structure. This makes me feel smart.

  • I will also read anything if it has a vampire in it.

  • Non-fiction is A++ I like me some popular history, and sometimes I even read philosophy and it doesn't feel like arguing with a needy child. (In the way conversing with philosophy majors often does.) BUT YES, I love books, not just novels.

  • Is there a ship? Are funny nautical hats involved? These omens bode well.

  • I like most genres, but hard sci-fi is generally not my thing. There are always exceptions!!

  • ASSASSIN PRIESTS, always a winner.

  • I like my high fantasy like my Final Fantasy: with lots of backstabbing and set in Ivalice. I am more about the political drama than the high magic or randomass invented languages. Or dragons Dragons are silly. Yes I know why haven't I read a Song of Ice and Fire.

  • I'm fully capable of reading a book for the prose and not the plot.

  • Also: cats are cute.

    1) It's very hot outside but the cat is large and warm and also he really wants to sit in people's laps. Perhaps he is senile. Has he not realized…
