10/2020: When you can’t order new books, you fish out what you had/ had borrowed (this is you @bhavnasahai ). This would be my second novel by the author, the first one being #adirtyjob.

When the world is doing crazy, a book about an angel reviving the dead by turning them into zombies, which are fought by a 6’6” stoned constable, his hallucinating warrior wife, and a pilot with a fruit bat pet at the “Lonesome Christmas party” is what sounds probably alright.
Perhaps I wouldn’t have enjoyed this book in normal circumstances; the plethora of random characters being a definite reason. Being a very “Christian” novel, I expected more Good Omens type humour ( satirical, slightly deadpan) but was left disappointed. The characters themselves are very well sketched out with their quirks lending quite some laughs. I loved the small albeit passable bit of the Christmas carol little drummer boy when being sung by a drunk and almost retching man! Swipe ➡️ if you’re interested to read that 😄

May be just a ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 kind of book for me.

🍍Happy Friday friends. Hope you've all had a mentally peaceful week. I think the start of a new month is putting a bit of pep back into our isolated steps, yeah? I feel like it's done that for me.
°
°
I also feel slightly more in control of the slippery reigns of my reading life. I'm gonna leave thrillers in March, and get back to the that good good. The comfort stuff. Like Christopher Moore, who I I'd be lying straight to your face about if I said I didn't adore with my whole satire-loving soul. His writing is my midnight snack. My guilty pleasure. THIS GUY IS WARPED AND I'M HERE FOR IT.
°
°
I urgently suggest that you check out his stuff, then come back and tell me what you think, I'll be right here...

Lubicie książki z humorem?🤣 Satyrycznym, rubasznym, chwilami na granicy przyzwoitości?🤩
Hybrisa i ja, Sol, uwielbiamy, zwłaszcza w wykonaniu Moore'a😍
Brudna robota oszałamia pomysłami, hipnotyzuje i wciąga. Jest na przemian przezabawna i bardzo smutna, zawsze dynamiczna i pełna zwrotów akcji, a przy tym nie przypomina żadnej innej książki. Obecne pokolenie doczekało się swojego Vonneguta, Robbinsa i Swifta w jednym. Amen.

Death (and fun) Awaits

What would happen if you woke up one day and realized you were now a death merchant, tasked with gathering and relocating souls of the dead. How would you feel knowing your newborn was abounding with powers... potentially deadly powers. Join Charlie on his journey of death awakening and enjoy some dark humor and imaginings and travel the road of the Death Merchant. #adirtyjob #grimreaperseries

👋👋 Promise I'm still here and still (trying) to read. Honesty hour bookstagram friends: COVID-19 hit my work hard the past two weeks. I'm grateful for my job, but I dealt with some losses of coworkers and my own employees. I haven't had time to read and make videos, but found solace in scrapbooking. Hoping to be back to video making soon. How are you during this uncertain time?

Their names are Death, Disease, War, and Sparkle-Darkle Glitter-tits,” Sophie said. “They’re the four little ponies of the Apocalypse.

Christopher Moore, Secondhand Souls (Grim Reaper, #2) 📜 Back when I still loved Christopher Moore. .. the above quote reminds me of that Robot Chicken skit with the My Little Apocalypse Pony ad.. if you have never seen it, look it up on YouTube. It's short and hilarious. If you like macabre humor anyway. 📜 What makes you laugh? Puns? Absurdity? Black humor? Wholesome cute humor? Dad jokes? We all have funny bones, what tickles them? 
For me, it's really the dark and or absurd humor. I kind of have a twisted sense of what's funny. Like yesterday,  in the middle of the most insane dinner rush ever, a coworker stated an actual fact that set against the backdrop of our current situation (everyone in the weeds, dying) was completely absurd and just busted me up and I had tears I was laughing so hard and my friend genuinely thought my brain had broke. I can't lie, I do appreciate a good pun too, and this same friend is great at supplying me with punny jokes on a daily basis. 📜 Speaking of work, I worked 11 straight hours on Valentine's without even sitting down once. I got to use the bathroom twice. That was it. I'm exhausted. But.. everyone was super nice and I made good money. I'm sorry to post and Ghost again... but I'm going back to work. 🙈 I'll catch up tomorrow,  I promise!

It took me way too long to read book 27. I liked the story and the writer is very funny. It was just one of those times where I wasn't able to get much reading time in. Hoping to get back into a swing if things after this weekend.

*Reseña Silvia* 
Feliz viernes a tod@s, hoy os traigo un libro que leí hace algunos años y el cual me gusto mucho. 
Se trata de Un trabajo muy sucio de Christopher Moore. En algunas ocasiones tiene cosas muy absurdas o fuera de lugar pero la verdad que me reí mucho, además que la temática relacionada con la muerte me gusta y más si es en plan cómico. ⭐La sinopsis es la siguiente: "Charlie Asher es dueño de un edificio en San Francisco, tiene una tienda de objetos de segunda mano y está casado con una mujer guapa e inteligente que lo quiere por ser tan normal. Sí, a Charlie le van bien las cosas... hasta el día en que nace su hija, Sophie. Justo cuando se dispone a irse a casa, ve junto a la cama de su mujer a un extraño que asegura que nadie debería poder verlo. Pero Charlie lo ve y, de allí en adelante, comienzan a suceder cosas muy raras: la gente cae muerta a su alrededor, cuervos gigantes se posan en su edificio y parece que, allá donde va, oye susurros de una presencia siniestra. Sí, Charlie ha sido reclutado para un trabajo desagradable pero muy necesario: la Muerte. Es un trabajo sucio. Pero alguien tiene que hacerlo."⭐ La verdad que si quieres desconectar del mundo y reírte por cosas fuera de lugar y te gusta la temática oscura por llamarla de alguna manera porque no creo que se pueda encasillar un libro en solo una temática, os recomiendo este libro.

Me leí este y la segunda parte, es lo único que me he leído del autor por el momento, porque tengo varios pendientes pero como nos pasa a todos no me da tiempo jajaj ¿Conocéis algún otro trabajo de este autor tan loco? 😁😁😁. #malaga #lector #reader #libro #libros #book #books #instabook #leer #read #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #yomequedoenasaleyendo  #magia #magic #dark #oscuridad #ChristopherMoore #Untrabajomuysucio #Adirtyjob #Banshee #muerte #laparca #thedeath

Just wrapped up this book! What a CRAZY read. It's honestly an adult (and much more crude) version of the Percy Jackson series, but Celtic. Excited to review this book over the weekend!

Do you have a sick sense of humor and a love for long running jokes? Then Christopher Moore’s A Dirty Job is for you. This month I was blessed to have the universe align my work schedule with my friends in order to read this book together. The reader will follow Charlie Asher’s hysterical serendipity of becoming a dad while also becoming a death merchant. This book had me laughing out loud and curious to read more from this author and comes highly suggested to read with some dark chocolate and whiskey 🥃

...perché il jazz è un'arte zen, capito? Spontaneità controllata: non è qualcosa che si pianifica, ma qualcosa che si fa. Si fa esercizio, si imparano scale e tecniche e poi si riversano nel momento la propria conoscenza e i propri condizionamenti. «Nel jazz, ogni momento è una crisi» aveva detto Sato, citando Wynton Marsalis. «E devi fare appello a tutta la tua abilità, per superarla». Come per lo spadaccino, l'arciere, il poeta e il pittore: è tutto qui, non c'è futuro né passato. Solo il momento presente e il modo in cui lo affronti. L'arte accade. .

Ад и Лиссабон
⠀
На эпилепсии неанглийские английские штуки не закончились — латинский есть и у Пуаро:
⠀
‘Unfortunate that she is so intelligent,’ he murmured.
⠀
‘Who?’
⠀
‘Megan Barnard. Mademoiselle Megan. “Words,” she snaps out. At once she perceives that what I am saying means nothing at all. Everybody else was taken in.’ [...]
⠀
‘What I said could have been comprised into one short sentence. Instead I repeated myself ad lib without anyone but Mademoiselle Megan being aware of the fact.’
⠀
Из всех переводов книжки «ad lib» исчезло — Пуаро без конца повторялся, но вот как именно, даже Орёл объяснить не смог. Зато смогла Википедия — латинское «ad libitum» значит «по своему усмотрению» и применяется, когда нужна импровизация: актёры сочиняют забытый текст на ходу, музыканты играют как душе угодно, а подопытные кролики едят сколько влезет.
⠀
У Пуаро «ad lib» — наречие, но бывает и глагол:
⠀
The big dog didn’t seem to be interested in eating Charlie, just holding him there. Every time he tried to slither out from under it, the thing growled and pushed harder.
⠀
‘Down. Heel. Off.’ Charlie tried commands he’d heard dog trainers shout on TV. ‘Fetch. Roll over. Get the fuck off me, you beast.’ (He ad-libbed that last one.)
⠀
А мне «ad lib» напомнило адскую библиотеку бесконечных импровизаций великих творцов, которые продали душу, чтобы попасть в рай. Или хотя бы в «Ad Marginem».

🍍Happy Friday friends. Hope you've all had a mentally peaceful week. I think the start of a new month is putting a bit of pep back into our isolated steps, yeah? I feel like it's done that for me.
°

I also feel slightly more in control of the slippery reigns of my reading life. I'm gonna leave thrillers in March, and get back to the that good good. The comfort stuff. Like Christopher Moore, who I I'd be lying straight to your face about if I said I didn't adore with my whole satire-loving soul. His writing is my midnight snack. My guilty pleasure. THIS GUY IS WARPED AND I'M HERE FOR IT.

Маленький великан

У Фоли французского больше нет, зато есть у Кристи — Пуаро половину книжки говорит на родном языке, и это никак не переводится. Почти вся французская речь там действительно французская, но есть одна международная штука:
⠀
‘As to your question,’ went on Thompson, ‘it’s perfectly possible for an epileptic subject in a state of somnambulism to commit an action and be entirely unaware of having done so. [...]
⠀
He went on discussing the matter, speaking of grand mal and petit mal and, to tell the truth, confusing me hopelessly as is often the case when a learned person holds forth on his own subject.
⠀
Если прочитать только второй абзац, то опять ничего непонятно. Но если начать с первого, можно догадаться, что речь про эпилепсию: «grand mal» — это большой припадок, а «petit mal» — малый припадок. Потому что по-французски «mal» — болезнь, а «grand» и «petit» — её размеры.
⠀
«Grand mal» называется «тонико-клонический приступ», и выглядит очень жёстко:
⠀
In Salt Lake City, I’d pitched what’s called a tonic-clonic seizure, what people used to call a grand mal seizure. I woke up in the back of a screaming ambulance [...] A blanket wrapped with belts held me flat, and I could smell shit. I asked the med tech, What happened? And he stuffed his wallet in his back pocket, saying, “Buddy, you don’t want to know …”
⠀
«Petit mal» называется «абсанс», он же «absence», и выглядит почти безобидно:
⠀
Ray was sure he hadn’t looked away, he didn’t even think he had blinked, and he would have seen any sudden move Charlie might have made. Reverting to the Beta Male’s tendency to blame himself, Ray wondered if maybe he’d had some kind of petit mal seizure that had made him black out for a second.
⠀
А запомнить всё это мне помог маленький мальчик Петя — в детстве он топал ногами и катался по полу, а потом вырос и стал грандиозным Петром Первым. Но ногами топать не перестал.

March comes to a close with 21 completed reads. With not working full time because of all that’s going on, I’ve been able to double my time spent reading since being stuck at home in my free time. Slowly I’ll get all 163 books on my tbr tackled.

My top three books read this month would have to be A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore, Virgin Flyer by Lucy Lennox and Our Dreams at Dusk volume 2 which all rated 5 stars in my opinion. I had ten 4 star reads, seven 3 star reads and one 2 star read this month. Hopefully next month I can add some more 5 star reads to the mix!

10/2020: When you can’t order new books, you fish out what you had/ had borrowed (this is you @bhavnasahai ). This would be my second novel by the author, the first one being #adirtyjob.

When the world is doing crazy, a book about an angel reviving the dead by turning them into zombies, which are fought by a 6’6” stoned constable, his hallucinating warrior wife, and a pilot with a fruit bat pet at the “Lonesome Christmas party” is what sounds probably alright.
Perhaps I wouldn’t have enjoyed this book in normal circumstances; the plethora of random characters being a definite reason. Being a very “Christian” novel, I expected more Good Omens type humour ( satirical, slightly deadpan) but was left disappointed. The characters themselves are very well sketched out with their quirks lending quite some laughs. I loved the small albeit passable bit of the Christmas carol little drummer boy when being sung by a drunk and almost retching man! Swipe ➡️ if you’re interested to read that 😄

May be just a ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 kind of book for me.

A DIRTY JOB by CHRISTOPHER MOORE
🌟🌟🌟
.
.
My first Christopher Moore book. At first I thought it was going to suck, but it didn't. It was actually really funny and adventurous. The story is as playful as its cover. Though it had its moments of pure morbidity, there were a lot of light moments which balanced the whole story. .
.
I've been seeing a bunch of Christopher Moore books in thrift book shops around Baguio. Go grab 'em, folks! .

This was the first ever Christopher Moore books for me. One of my dearest friends @ brandiland07 had suggested this book to me a few years back and well I never got around to getting it or reading so for my birthday she surprised me with it! I’m so happy she did because it was FANTASTIC! ••••••••
First couple pages I was like “oh no this is going to be a sad book!” I immediately txt my friend and she assured me it was not a sad book to keep reading. It was hilarious. Also I have to say I was super impressed with how our main character handled everything he was dealt, I will not give any spoilers other than being Death seems like a crazy gig while raising a daughter! I highly (speaking of high, sour diesel was a wonderful pair with this book!) recommend it. •••••••
Have you ever read this or any other Christopher Moore books? If so, which one and what did you think?

A dirty job, but someone has to do it...⁠
April 2017. Outside Hamarikyu Gardens in Tokyo, Japan. This was a lone worker in a muddy trench that glistened like crude oil. At the top of the ladder were five people, one in a suit, discussing the hard work going on beneath them. ⁠

Their names are Death, Disease, War, and Sparkle-Darkle Glitter-tits,” Sophie said. “They’re the four little ponies of the Apocalypse.

Christopher Moore, Secondhand Souls (Grim Reaper, #2) 📜 Back when I still loved Christopher Moore. .. the above quote reminds me of that Robot Chicken skit with the My Little Apocalypse Pony ad.. if you have never seen it, look it up on YouTube. It's short and hilarious. If you like macabre humor anyway. 📜 What makes you laugh? Puns? Absurdity? Black humor? Wholesome cute humor? Dad jokes? We all have funny bones, what tickles them? 
For me, it's really the dark and or absurd humor. I kind of have a twisted sense of what's funny. Like yesterday,  in the middle of the most insane dinner rush ever, a coworker stated an actual fact that set against the backdrop of our current situation (everyone in the weeds, dying) was completely absurd and just busted me up and I had tears I was laughing so hard and my friend genuinely thought my brain had broke. I can't lie, I do appreciate a good pun too, and this same friend is great at supplying me with punny jokes on a daily basis. 📜 Speaking of work, I worked 11 straight hours on Valentine's without even sitting down once. I got to use the bathroom twice. That was it. I'm exhausted. But.. everyone was super nice and I made good money. I'm sorry to post and Ghost again... but I'm going back to work. 🙈 I'll catch up tomorrow,  I promise!

*This is both a list of what I’ve read and a rank of what I’ve read so far*
.
.
I’m down 4 books so far this year. 2 physical and 2 audio. I only just discovered Christopher Moore last month and I have officially found somebody else who tells the kind of stories I love to tell. A Dirty Job asks what would happen if a hypochondriac became a grim reaper. It’s an amazing story and the performance on the audiobook will have you dying with laughter. Who knew the words “like bear” would make me belly laugh and become my new favorite combination of words. I bought another book by him after my first day of A Dirty Job.
.
.
Catch and Kill, read by Ronan Farrow, will obliterate your soul and make you want to vomit every couple of minutes, but it is so so worth it. These women and Ronan are amazing.
.
.
Outliers is such a wild and interesting look at how luck and chance can help us succeed. Malcolm is a straight shooter and a man of facts. I can’t wait to read another book by him immediately.
.
.
Slade House...the only meh, boring book on the list. It also is the shortest lol You’re better off skipping this one no matter how much they try to tell you that it’s worth it for King fans.

LOTD-  black dress, red lip, pearls. .
Need I say more?
.
Heading to the tasting lunch for the Bacchanalia Gala-  one of my perks for being the Gala Chair (which is a volunteer position).
.
It is an excellent perk!  Mostly because I don’t get to enjoy the entire menu on the evening-  too much else to do!
.
So I woke up early and worked out so I’m still on track- but ya my food is not going to be today!- extra hard morning sweat might equal that out.

This was my favorite book for a very long time until I read #thestand by #stephenking but I still and will forever hold this one close to my heart. It’s the story of Charlie Asher, he is a socially awkward pawn shop owner who just so happens to find himself in a precarious situation as he becomes death, or at least something like it. It’s a dark comedy that’s heart felt and hilarious, it has good guys, villains and lizard people! Nothing short of perfect. #christophermoore #adirtyjob #book #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #shelfie #bookphotography #read #alwaysreading #reading #comedy #darkhumor

So, I just got these two. The second book of a dirty job, which was a really good novel, and one of my favorite alien comics, which has some incredibly amazing xenomorph and character designs. I found there was an extra chapter in this comic seperate from the one I was reading online, so that's new! And they give more sketches and concept arts for the alien which will help me a lot lol.

Día 8. Morrigan
El de ayer, que no me dio lugar a entintarlo.
Quizás me ha quedado más arpía que morrigan, pero me he basado en la imagen que me dejaron las morrigans que describe (o que tengo el recuerdo que describe más bien) Christopher Moore en Un trabajo muy sucio. Lo de comer ojos tampoco recuerdo si está sacado de ahí, pero en una deidad basada en el cuervo tiene que ser plato de su gusto.

Rereading is a comfort.

For years I read a book once and didn’t revisit it. I thought, “There are too many books out there to read. I can’t waste time on one I’ve already read.” But I’ve come to understand that I don’t have to read to reach a quota. I don’t need to reach a Goodreads goal or a page count. I should only do it for fun. That would make me happier. I rewatch movies when I want something I already like. It’s no different with books.

Lately, I’ve seen posts dissing rereading in favor of hitting a higher book count. If this makes you happy then proceed. But I get more out of books when I spend time processing them or rereading them. There is no wrong way to enjoy reading, but you wouldn’t know it by the snobbery you come across. I’m guilty too. 
This is my favorite author, Christopher Moore. His books are HILARIOUS.

I will try to read for the love of it. I will read slowly. I will let others enjoy books their way.

"Charlie Asher: 'I accidently shagged a monk last night.'
Minty Fresh: 'Sometimes, in times of crisis, that shit cannot be avoided.'”
―A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. 
I don't own a lot of funny books and there aren't a lot that have made me laugh out loud except this one. It is a gem of a book.

"In order to hold off the Forces of Darkness, you will need a number two pencil and a calendar, preferably one without pictures of kitties on it."
.
I finished A Dirty Job yesterday. It was pretty funny and I liked that characters from Moore's vampire trilogy were infused in this story.
. 
Charlie Asher starts seeing red glowing objects after his wife dies. Things just get weirder for Charlie as he collects and redistributes souls while trying to raise his daughter and run a business.
.
The personalities in this book are so odd. The unlikely relationships between characters is what I liked most about this story. When the freakishly strange starts coming off as normal, you know the book has captured your imagination.
.
If death merchants, sewer harpies, little girls with 400lb Hell hounds, and 14 inch squirrel people are your kind of thing, then this book is for you 😂 It's goofy and strange and charming. Such a fun read. I look forward to the sequel.

Have you read any Christopher Moore? What's your favorite from his books?
