People aren't so good at being good to one another. We try hard enough, but something essential was left out in the making of us, some hard little patch of stone in the fertile soil that's supposed to be our hearts. We get hung up on the bad, and we focus on it until it grows, and the whole crop is lost.

I think this arc hits especially hard because everything was going so well.

Kind of interesting I couldn't remember how this started, with the sister of the main character cutting off his arms and leg to eat for his birthday dinner, and making him a cake using his fingers and toes as "candles." Either the rest of this volume was bland or I just have a really bad memory.

I don't even remember what happened in the first volume, which is never a good sign. I think I might have to actually re-read it 😣

Tomitake lived for 9 pages this time. That's a new record! Last story arc it took him 25 pages to die.

It just feels right to read Higurashi this time of year.

It hit him later, when he was comfortably settled on his belly in the bed, his wings open and gently supported, and Jaenelle and the wolves were out doing walkies—a silly word that struck him as an accurate description of the intricate, furry dance three wolves would perform around her while taking a late afternoon stroll.

Remind you of someone? 🐺

"What do you want, Lord Greer?" Saetan asked.
Greer stared at the floor. "I was wondering if you had any news about the young witch."
The room felt so deliciously cold, so sweetly dark. One thought, one flick of his mind, one brief touch of the Black Jewels' strength and there wouldn't be enough left of that Warlord to be even a whisper in the Darkness.

I have a feeling he's going to regret not doing just that.

Was going to read the Bishop book but didn't feel like it. Started a Batman graphic novel and got bored but then I remembered I'm behind on Gotham. Time to get caught up! Court of Owls ... yesssss. That's one of my favorite story arcs of all time, even though it's pretty new.

Anyone else get discouraged by the position of a bookmark? Like OMG I still have so much to read.

They're sawing off the dude's penis too but I was thinking that wasn't right. Eunuchs still had at least that! But according to Wikipedia China, among other places, did take the whole thing. So carry on with your maiming, book.

And now they're making a eunuch. For entertainment. As an audience of women and two very uncomfortable men watch.

It's funny, The Others had almost zero sex, but this is like ...
"Casual incest! Prostitutes! Magical cock rings that keep sex slaves in check!"

I've been on a roll with novels lately so I think I'm going to give this behemoth of a book a chance.

Now I remember why I stalled here. Honestly this book should've already been over. We've gone through the climax but there's still 150 pages or so to go. It just feels awkward; like the party is already over but some people haven't left yet.

Haha whoops I was only supposed to read to chapter 12 ...
I'll say one thing, this is nowhere near as flowery as I thought it'd be. I feel like Shiver was worse but it's also possible that I have a terrible memory.
