    Book review: The Necrophiliac by Gabrielle Wittkop

    Book review of The Necrophiliac by Gabrielle Wittkop This book review of The Necrophiliac will perhaps be weird and surprising. As art has a tendency to do, conflicting emotions appeared when reading The Necrophiliac. The subject in itself is quite morbid and disturbing, but here’s what the book did!

It’s written in a diary format that plainly records the thoughts and actions of Lucien, a middle-aged man of some means who suffers a terrible loneliness that can only be assuaged by having…

    What I read in May 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in May 2020. Let’s wrap up the month and see what books I read, liked, didn’t like and more. I’ll also dive into a few readathons I’ve participated in. Maybe I made progress on my reading challenges in May 2020? First of all, I just want to stress the fact that I don’t see reading as a competition and I do have months where I don’t read anything, and other times where I read a lot of books. It all depends on my mood, my sparetime and whatever else is going on.  So please, don’t feel…
