MrsJoseph: Books, Life & Wine

I’m currently on the run from the Amazon Empire. The Empire recently used it’s planet sized money to destroy devour my previous safehouse: Goodreads.


I read a lot. Have a bit of a tendency to review as well. So…this is mostly a book review site. Unless its not. But I’m not taking review requests.


Cause sometimes I’ll write about whatever I feel like, book or no.


Things I [currently] like:


So, I’ll talk about that stuff. Unless I don’t.


That “life” part in the site title is all about flexibility, lol.

[REBLOG] Can We Agree? (Blog Read 2)

Reblogged from Gurglings of a Putrid Stream:

For our second blog read, do we have agreement on any of the following titles? (I'm cheating and adding a bunch of other ones myself, both because the last couple of days have been pretty light on activity here at BL and because I'm pretty much limited to my own collection and those of the three small libraries in my area.)

Anyone can suggest alternate titles. I've only read two (maybe three) of the books below.

Legion by William Peter Blatty
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
The Burning Court by John Dickson Carr
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Diva by Delacorta
Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said by Philip K. Dick
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
Time and Again by Jack Finney
She by H. Rider Haggard
The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson
Ape and Essence by Aldous Huxley
The First Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
A Most Wanted Man by John Le Carré
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
This Perfect Day by Ira Levin
The Magician by W. Somerset Maugham
The Seven-Per-Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer
Love in the Ruins by Walker Percy
The Witches of Karres by James H. Schmitz
If You Could See Me Now by Peter Straub
The Space Vampires (or Lifeforce) by Colin Wilson
The Gentlemen's Hour by Don Winslow

If you've suggested a book and it's not in the list, it's because neither I nor my local libraries have it. (I'm the same as Bookstooge: I'll read just about anything, so it's certainly not because I've rejected it for some reason.)
