No Judgements, Please!

Okay, okay. Let’s get one thing straight: I will ALWAYS prefer real books… not electronic. The shuffle of pages and the smell is delightful to my senses. However, with my current job, I don’t always have time to go to Barnes & Noble, but I feel a tad empty without a book to read, so I had to improvise this morning.

As I was researching books to read, I stumbled upon Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang; this appears to be her debut novel. I looked at her Goodreads profile and we seem to like similar things, so I think I’m going to like the novel! I was reading reviews that people had read, and they were very mixed and wishy-washy. So I had to find out for myself what this book holds.

I was able to read the first few/several pages and have come across these quotes one seems to be a theme in the novel; the other is for my pure enjoyment:

“‘What’s your name?’ he asked. ‘I love hearing what different people are called. Someday, I’d like to meet someone by every single name.'”

And this quote just makes me smile: “My wife once said she’d had a better conversation with a donkey, but she agreed to marry me, anyway, because I was a good listener and was slightly better looking.”

I will keep you updated! …and I’ll probably go and by the real life version in my free time; if that exists!

Go lose yourself in your pages!
