Currently Reading

I'm currently reading The Art and Practice of Astral Projection by Ophiel. It's an oldie, but a goodie. I checked out reviews on goodreads and a lot of people say that this is a great book for it's time, but I think it's a solid read even today.

Granted, I admit to not having read any other books on astral 5
projection, so perhaps I'm out of the loop.

The tone is fairly conversational and I think that's what I enjoy the most. It feels like I'm sitting down with a teacher who is explaining how to go about setting this up as a practice.

Added bonus, the pace and tone of it make it a very easy, quick read (which rocks on a mama of toddler's schedule). I have other books that have taken me forever to get through, but this one is likely going to be finished by the end of the week, which is pretty amazing for me these days in terms of occult, non fiction reading.

I'm almost halfway through it and am enjoying how the text is enriching my practice.

Also just finished reading The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey. It's a zombie dystopia novel (are there any other types of zombie novels?) set in England in what seems to be about 50 or so years in the future.

Humans have caught a bunch of young zombies who display intellectual activity and are teaching/experimenting on them when the base is attacked and 1 young girl zombie with genius IQ levels escapes with a small group of humans. Blah, blah, blah. Tensions ensue between divided human beliefs and the ethics of what is right. The story ends with a twist (which is revealed all over goodreads so be cautious is you read reviews).

I enjoyed it. It was a good summer read that I was able to pick up and put down easily over the week.

I was (still am?) reading The Icarus Girl by Helen Oyeyemi but I'm finding it hard to get through. Something about it just isn't speaking to me even though it's plotline is, in theory, totally something I should like.

What are you reading? Any recommendations?
