Bookmail! Anyone read this book? I'm quite looking forward to this one. I find that the older I get, the more I'm aware of the inequality between men and women.

This was a bit of a disappointment after The shafow of the wind. David Martin slightly annoyed me and I just couldn't care what happened to him. The ending was exciting though.

Letzten Monat kamen einige Neuzugänge bei mir an, weil ich die Kategorie Verlosung im #Bookcrossing Forum gewonnen habe. Darunter auch diese Sammlung von Kürzestgeschichten, die es ganz schön in sich haben 😱

This book definitely broke my heart. The story of two women in Afghanistan, born to completely different circumstances and generations, who end up married to the same man. It is a story of friendship, betrayal, war, loss, abuse and ultimately love. This book will stay with me for a long time and will ultimately be one of my favorites. It‘s ready to travel and hopefully touch another reader. #bookcrossing #bookcrosser #bookmail

I selected this book at a #BookCrossing meetup to release in my #LittleFreeLibrary. The problem was that I browsed through the book before placing it on the bookshelf. You guessed it! I‘m reading it now...and I never did release it on my bookshelf. This book is cruel and mean so far. That‘s okay because it fits with what I‘m seeing my country becoming. What‘s the answer? Maybe the answer is in this graphic novel.

This book started off pretty slow but I eventually got sucked into the story. Very descriptive writing but I felt that the characters were a little one dimensional. Since there were a lot of characters it would have been hard to really get to know them all but I felt a little disengaged because of the underdevelopment. Overall a pick and a good story but not going to be a favorite. It‘ll be on its way to a new reader soon. #bookcrossing

marleed I liked this book as I read it. Upon reflection though it bugged me though that the author gave Maya the moral high ground. I don‘t think Maya deserved that distinction. I‘ll be interested to see how the series develops the characters. 3mo
Kaila-ann @marleed I kind of feel the same way. Mia made a lot of mistakes and hurt people in the process, deeply hurt people. And yet, she is portrayed as being above it all and someone that all these damaged/broken people turn to in their times of need. 3mo
marleed @Kaila-ann I hope the series gives the suburb mom a break! I bet they do otherwise Reese‘s character will play too much like she does in Big Little Lies. Mia thought of no one but herself in her early actions and the consequences were suffered by those she left in her dust. It‘s hard for me to find her the champion of the story. 3mo
Kaila-ann @marleed I'm really curious to see the adaptation of this one myself and I agree, Mia was prideful and selfish in the past. I don't think she deserved to be put on a pedestal at all. 3mo

Finished this one last night and really enjoyed it. It was a quick, easy read but also heartfelt. I really enjoyed the way the story was told, alternating between Daniel and Natasha‘s POVs with some of the side characters thrown into the mix with their POVs and little stories. The other two books are TBR for this weekend as book swaps. #bookcrossing #bookswaps #booktrades #weekendtbr

Needing a break from my other book. I was already halfway in this one, so...
I'm sending this one on to a #bookcrossing friend when I'm finished with it. Bought it last December at #betterworldbooks.
