    镇魂 (Zhen Hun/Guardian) by Priest
    This beautifully written novel have a lot of mistery, murder, fantasy (creatures, spiritual cultivation, reincarnation, gods), drama, funny moments, etc~ but the main plot is about two beings bonded to love each other despite the struggles and the consequences...
    (ToT)/♡ I've read this novel countless of times without getting tired of it...

    “The children that time forgot” ~ Peter and Mary Harrison.
    One of the very first books I read many years ago on the subject of reincarnation. I just happened to read it again :)

    I’m reading David Copperfield by Charles Dickens currently.
    If you’re into classics there’s a channel on YouTube called Audio Books that has tonnes of audiobooks for older literature, I like to listen to some when I’m drawing

    I’m currently reading Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall. It’s very funny. It’s definitely in the Bridget Jones’ Diary arena but with the central romantic relationship being two men. Of course they are polar opposites and one is quite unrefined and always making an arse of himself like Bridget but he’s essentially a good bloke. His dad is a much lived aging rockstar which puts his shenanigans in the papers. The other is a barrister blissfully unaware of his name intensity and serious nature. They agree to have a “Fake”relationship to further their individual goals. See the similarities. It’s really very witty even with the cliched Rom Com bits, but I have no shame and love these innocuous reads. It would make a fantastic film.

    He will really enjoy it if he likes the subject. It’s an old book now but still interesting. It is made up of many different people’s Accounts of their children suddenly talking about “when they were here before” or “my other mum used to say this/do that” etc.

    Other books I would recommend to your friend on the subject of reincarnation are ones written by Brian Weiss, an American Psychiatrist.


    This sounds fun to read! I’m going to put that on my list of future reads. :)

    I’m currently reading a book written by the Sports commentator, Andrew Cotter. It’s called Olive, Mabel & me.

    During lockdown, sporting events were cancelled and so he was home, and decided to make fun video’s of his two labradors, Olive and Mabel, whilst making fun commentaries. These hilarious videos went viral. He and his two beautiful dogs became famous! So he wrote the book (of which I’m really enjoying). Below is one of the funny video’s he did of his two dogs.

    You’re welcome!

    It’s funny because I’m not at all interested in sport either lol. He was asked to commentate on these penguins for a good cause and this is absolutely hilarious! It always makes me laugh out loud! I know you’ll love this one...

    I finally got round to watching that one. I did like it. Of course I have the soul of a child so I still laughed when he poo’d “That’s probably why” but my favourite is “He’s building an extension with his winnings”. We’ve gone off task so I’ll bring us back around. Gay Penguins. Books. Who’s read and Tango Makes Three?

    The last book I read was “Reluctant Fundamentalist.” It’s a novel I had to read for a college class on globalization in literature. It was okay.

    The last book I read was Dating Sarah Cooper by Siera Maley and I'm currently reading Colorblind by Siera Maley and I'm on chapter thirteen. When I'm done with Colorblind I plan to read On the outside By Siera Maley. Man I never realized it before but I really like books by Siera Maley

    I am in the middle of reading (again after a long time) one of my favorite books. Krabat (Otfried Preußler)
    My next book will be Septimus Heap (Angie Sage).
    I love fantasy novels.
