Fun Fact
Pressing J while looking at a Tumblr blog or home feed will scroll up on the page, pressing K will scroll down. This is helpful considering a lot of the Tumblrs feature infinite scrolling.

Oxenfree is an amazing atmospheric game available on Switch. It is a modern ghost story without jump scares and with great characters and dialogue. There's an element of choice, but the game never seeks to punish or "trick" you through the choices thankfully. It is very worthwhile to play 'blind'. It is very well-written, I think you would enjoy it. Please let us know if you do!
Okay, I just searched this, and it sounds AMAZING!! I'm always looking for fun, spooky games to play. Thank you for taking the time to recommend it!!

On War and Peace: it's worth it! Sometimes I did have to force myself to continue because some chapters can be rather dull, but I'd totally read it again. Also, there is a ridiculous amount of characters involved, so if you wanted to not lose track, maybe a kind of overview might be helpful?
Ahh I'm sorry I didn't respond to this sooner, I'm so bad at responding to asks πŸ₯Ί
Thank you for the advice, this honestly makes me so much more excited to read War and Peace!!
I found that was also the case when I was reading Anna Karenina. There were so many characters with similar sounding names, it was difficult to keep track of. I'll probably try and find a family tree or something similar online!! πŸ–€

OH WOW. I-
I'm so emotional right now... we hit 10K!!!
Tumblr started off as a place for me to share my love for books. I wasn't expecting anyone to follow me, or even care about what I thought. I never would've thought that I'd reach 10 fricking K!!
This blog has become a place of comfort for me, and I'm so grateful for every one of you that follows, likes, shares, interacts or even just reads my random posts.
I hope this blog has become a safe space for you, just as it has for me. Ily πŸ–€

One of the characters in this book, The Overstory by Richard Powers, has literally just up and left her entire life behind. She had 4 months left of her Uni degree, and had the courage to just leave behind the toxic lifestyle, the damaging societal expectations, in order to pursue a life of peace where she can care for nature. It only took her to almost die in order to make this decision, but still...
I'm *manifesting* this energy.

Anyone else *love* it when the male character in a book/film has white or silver hair.

A quote from this book that honestly made me tear up: (a woman is talking to the trees)
"Thank you for the tools. The chests. The decking. The clothes closets. The paneling... thank you for all these gifts you have given." And still not knowing how to stop, she adds, "We're sorry. We didn't know how hard it is for you to grow back."

Currently reading The Overstory by Richard Powers for Uni. I won't lie, it's taking me a while to get through because it's quite dense. But wow, it's amazing!! If you're a fan of literary fiction, you should definitely give this a try πŸ₯°

It is a very slow read, it took me SIX months to finish... yeah. Six months.
I think the best advice I have is to not force yourself to read huge chunks of it. What I did is divide the book into small sections, and read one section every day. And then I did this whilst reading other books alongside it. This way, it won't feel as exhausting to read.
Another thing, maybe switch up the format? So switch to an audio book (if you have that option) and listen to it when you're cooking/cleaning etc. You'll get through the book much faster, and again, it won't feel as tiring to read.
The edition that I own is the Vintage Russian Classics edition. The translation is by Louise and Aylmer Maude. I can't comment on other translations, but this one was good.
Anna Karenina can be quite difficult to get through because of its size, you have to put in a lot of work and effort, but I think the payoff is worth it πŸ₯° YOU GOT THISSS!!!
So last year I read Anna Karenina and it's one of the greatest achievements of my life istg. I think this year, I might try and read War and Peace??

'You have given me a thing I could never have imagined, before I knew you. It's like I had the word "book," and you put one in my hands. I had the word "game," and you taught me how to play. I had the word "life," and then you came along and said, "Oh! You mean this."'
β€” The Overstory, Richard Powers
