The Shining Girls is a novel by South African author Lauren Beukes. The book centers around a time-traveling Depression-era drifter who must murder the “shining girls” in order to continue his travels.

His latest book, as it is so rare cos no one wants to read it, cost him R1700 which is about $150us.

This is one page

And confirmation of this appeared page 2….

My new eye patch sleeping goggles

I am currently in bed trying them out with the light on and it’s not bad!


I tried to take a better picture then I realized that firstly I’m trying to take it with a blindfold on, and secondly, there is simply no way to take an attractive picture wearing my sleeping night eye mask
