The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer.

Reviews on this blog: I posted reviews for On Bullshit  and The Red Tree (also posted on GoodReads).

Last week was Horror Week on the GoodReads blog, which posted this list:

The 50 Most Popular Horror Novels on GoodReads (the list also includes some short story collections)
I’ve read: 
Poe’s stories & poems 
The Haunting of Hill House
We Have Always Lived in the Castle
some Lovecraft stories (but not an entire collection)
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde
On my list: 
The Ballad of Black Tom
House of Leaves

Of the classics on the list, the big one I haven’t read is Dracula, but I don’t know if I want to read it. 
On Sunday I posted The Monday Poem again for All About Books. I picked “Alone” by Edgar Allen Poe. I’m also doing next week. 
I finished Manfred by Lord Byron. It was great, but I still need to write a review. This will be my first book review for the Classics Club and my third review for the Readers Imbibing Peril Challenge. (I think I heard of this play originally from some review of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Manfred is mentioned, and quoted, in that book, but not by name, if I remember right. And JS & MN is one of my favorite books, so this has been on my to-read list for a while. (Also: I really wanted to have some books by the Romantic poets on my Classics Club list, but reading this reminded me that I haven’t read Prometheus Unbound, which I completely forgot about when I made my list. So, I’ll keep it in mind and maybe if I find something on my list that I don’t want to read, I’ll read that instead.) 
After that, I think I’ll read at least one more book for the RIP Challenge.

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.
