The Afterlife of my quest to examine my strength—or, The Afterlife Reading Challenge

Today marks the century of not blogging. The endless ‘to blog or not to blog’ dilemma must come to an end. Moreover, the fact of having a stalker (some men are mad, never takes no for an answer, never to understand: what is merely a pure friendship), which turned my life into the five stages of grief—to the understanding that I am too strong for this childish game.

2020 marks the beginning of a new decade, so I shall tickle the areas of fantasy and Gothic literature this year—like every day for my past 32 years on earth, which drew me to The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand realizing that I wish to read more concerning the afterlife—in the aspect of amusing fictional manner, not hellish fires.

Because of Cynthia Hand‘s The Afterlife of Holly Chase, I will start a challenge of reading books that include: ‘The Afterlife of’; with a character that is living in-between life and death, fulfilling an achievement following their afterlife; or the setting in the afterlife.

Books on my list (so far):
