Thursday Tea (August 5): Ring

Thursday Tea Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the answers to these questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.

The book: I’m about halfway through Koji Suzuki’s Ring, the book that Ringu and The Ring were based on (also The Ring Virus, which I haven’t seen). I already know the basic plot because I’ve seen the movie(s) before, so the creepy ghost stuff isn’t really creeping me out. I’m still feeling really tense reading about it, though, because, one, Mr Suzuki has a terrific hand in building tensions, and two, because I know at the end something awful is going to happen and I’m nervous for the characters in the book.

Also, I keep thinking about how the ghost looked in the movies and that is a scary ghost, okay.

The tea: Seriously, it’s too hot for hot tea (but not for coffee?!), so I’m drinking some iced peach tea my mother made. Refreshing and delicious!

Do they go together? Ha! Uh, no way. Maybe if the iced tea was so cold it gave me chills down my spine, they’d go together.

What are you drinking/reading this Thursday?
