Thursday Tea (June 23): Zoo City

I think I’m technically on a tiny blogging break right now, or at least I don’t feel like blogging much beyond memes. Or really doing anything beyond refreshing Tumblr a lot and watching movies. I hope this doesn’t mean I’m getting sick– my parents are sick and I’m sort of just waiting to see what’ll happen to me. Anyway:

The book: I am now 41% into Zoo City by Lauren Beukes, which recently won the Arthur C. Clarke award for awesomeness! I can see why, too, as it’s written with precision awesome, like Ms Beukes is a literary sniper or something. I can’t wait to review it! I’m sure it’s going to be horrendously difficult.

The tea: Okay, no, it’s coffee right now actually. I did manage to find a packet of Earl Grey hidden in the cupboard (again), but I’m saving that in case I really do get sick and need some comforting.

Do they go together? Actually I kind of think coffee and Zoo City do go together! The extra oomph of caffeine that coffee has compared to tea just seems to work more with the style and world of Zoo City.

Other tea drinkers

The Book Gatherer is reading Goodbye Sarajevo and drinking spicy chai tea.

  1. I took a quick peek at what Zoo City is all about, and it definitely looks like a coffee kind of book.

    I hope you don’t lose your blogging mojo for too long. I’ve been trying to get back in to the swing of things for the last month or so. I don’t have much of an excuse, either. I spent more of the last week watching Lost in Austen on Netflix than I care to admit.

    I may to watch it again right after this…

    1. I feel much perkier this week, but getting back into the swing of things after a break is always difficult. Plus now I’m addicted to playing games on OMGPop, and that’s another time suck I don’t need…eh. Summer’s always slow for me, anyway. I think we should just embrace our laziness and worry about productivity in the fall. 😀
