I have started reading a book by Chuck Paluhniuk called Haunted. I knew I had started to read this at some point, but had forgotten I'd read at least a few chapters of it. So now I have read the story Guts twice... it's not nice, but it's pretty awesome. To evoke so much talk and disgust about one of the parts of your book surely shows what an awesome writer you are? I think I will start reading more Chuck...

Anyway, last night, I went out for something to eat with the lovely Tanaz. We went to a place in town called La Vita, which is known for being probably the only pizza place in Wales (that's quite a grand statement!) to use vegan cheese if asked. So I rang ahead the other day to see if they needed me to let them know to get vegan cheese in. They said they had some in anyway. So last night as we go to order food, they say they haven't got any. Bummer. But anyway, it was still a lovely pizza and food in general, and it was lovely to spend time with Tanaz again. After we had eaten there, we then went to Buffalo Bar(where Vintage Pretty is held)which was nearer to where Tanaz was parked (and just minutes away from home, as I live a 5 minute walk from town). It was such a lovely evening! I think also it's good to get out as it makes you appreciate the time you have at home more.

This post is so random... and I don't really have much to say, but I thought I would try!



  1. Oh my goodness!! Palahniuk is my favorite author! Haunted is one of my favorites by him,, but Invisible Monsters is by far the best thing he's written. All of his books are incredible, but that one takes the cake for me. I also really enjoyed Lullaby and Survivor! I love finding people who like him, because although I think he's really great, he's very dark, and some just can't get into that! I hope you love the rest of Haunted!

    Oh, and the first time I read Guts...I nearly vomited, so that showed me that he is incredible, because reading pretty much never does that to me!

  2. Apparently when guts was read at public reading people passed out..which is nuts!

  3. I've had the book for some time but have only read the first few pages.
    I'll have to make an effort to finish reading it.

  4. I just wanted to shout out to all my favorite bloggers. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to everyday! :) Keep on keepin on xo you are amazing

  5. Guts is SO gross! Haunted is such a weird book. I think Palahniuk is a great writer, but I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I actually liked Haunted. Let me know what you think when you are done.

  6. I'm actually finding Haunted really difficult at the moment to get into... maybe it's just that Guts can't be outdone? But the other stories just aren't gripping me right now...
    I'm very keen to try Invisible Monsters though!

    (And thank you so much Tyler, you're so lovely!) xoxo
