Kafka on the Shore | Haruki Murakami
post image

“The drowning girl‘s fingers
Search for the entrance stone, and more.
Lifting the hem of her azure dress,
She gazes—
at Kafka on the shore.”
🌞 My #islandinthesun in this book is Japan, but the picture was taken in sunny Scottsdale.

Treasure Island | Robert Louis Stevenson
post image

“TO THE HESITATING PURCHASER If sailor tales to sailor tunes, storm and adventure, heat and cold, if schooners, islands, and maroons, and buccaneers, and buried gold, and all the old romance, retold exactly in the ancient way, can please, as me they pleased of old, the wiser youngsters of today: so be it, fall on!”

This is the last book I read that was set on an island. Bleaker Island is not an #IslandintheSun though! #SongsofSummer

This beautiful, thoughtful novel illuminates a world turned upside down, one where the women are in charge, engaging in dangerous physical work, and the men take care of the children. A classic Lisa See story—one of women‘s friendships and the larger forces that shape them—The Island of Sea Women introduces readers to the fierce and unforgettable female divers of Jeju Island and the history that shaped their lives. #islandinthesun #songsofsummer

LibLib Oh my goodness! I was on a plane and read in their plane magazine about these women. So glad there is a book about them because it was an interesting read. 4d

The Island | John Heffernan
post image

#SongsOfSummer Day 12: The description of this #IslandInTheSun reminded me of Singapore with its hurried cityscape and people rushing from one end of the island to the next. This island was transformed, though, by the blind boy‘s laughter as he discovered what the islanders initially perceived as a ‘monster‘ with its multi-colored scales and tentacles.
