Trynda here, today I’m going be bringing you a book bag video where I talk about HP Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Compendium as well as Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot.
I started reading the Lovecraft Compendium back in October sometime and I finished it up at the beginning of November and I just haven’t had a chance to shoot a video for it. But I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would, I really couldn’t connect with a lot of the characters because they just seemed to talk down to other cultures and it didn’t really sit well with me, I knew going into HP Lovecraft Compendium, what kind of writer he was and I thought that I could kind of get past it but it really just stuck with me and rub me the wrong way. I like how he often chose academically driven characters that were interested to know more about this culture of this like squid monsters but they always came off condescending and just downright disrespectful to other cultures and that didn’t sit well with me even remotely. I think of the short stories that were included in this collection, I really like The Call Of Cthulhu the best, it still had those same things that I didn’t really enjoy very much from the others but for the most part, that was really the only one I enjoyed and near the end, I was kind of just pushing through just to be done with it because I wasn’t enjoying it at that point.
All in all, I’m glad to have read this Lovecraft compendium but it didn’t really sit well with me and I probably won’t read H.P. Lovecraft’s work again.
So now that I’m done with the Lovecraft compendium, I’m actually going to be reading Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot instead of Victoria and this is because I’m going to be working on the draft for Time to let go instead of On Fallen wings and I wanted something that had more of a Tristan in his old field because that’s what the main characters are kind of based off of in my work in progress and not so much of a strong queen-like female protagonist that On Fallen wings has. I really wanted to get my head in the Tristan in his old theme so, that’s why I’m going to be going with this one instead.
So, I think that’s it for now guys, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more like them. If you have a recommendation that you’d like me to check out, then feel free to leave a comment down below. And I’ll leave links to all the books that I mentioned here today. And I think that’s it.
So, I’ll talk to you guys next time.
