Mehso-so

I‘m not a fan of metaphorical stories so this is a miss for me. This novella is haunting and atmospheric- a perfect winter read for readers that enjoy allegories.

Reviewsbylola Yeah that‘s not for me either. 4d

Mdargusch Well.... @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I almost bailed. It was very much about her sexcapades the first half of the book. Then there were a few twists and I started liking it. 3⭐️ 2w

My Struggle: Book One | Karl Knausgaard

Knausgaard's series is an introspective on his life and perhaps #humannature as well.

#GratefulReads Day 11: This thin novella has #CharacterYouHateToLove. A single mother and her young son have just moved to a small, seemingly-remote town in Norway where people seem to know everybody else. The boy who is about to celebrate his 9th birthday is convinced that his mother has something special planned out for him; while the mother has seemed to have completely forgotten about it. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kS1

Hey guys! This is my first post ever on this platform. So who am I? My name is Didre and I'm mostly active on Instagram. I love books and like to challenge myself by reading diverse books and genres. If you have tips please let me know and leave your instagram so I can follow you there too! I'm currently reading Autumn by Karl Ove Knausgaard.

@TheDaysGoBy tagged me in the #namechallenge game but I was traveling so couldn‘t get to my books. Then I got overwhelmed. But I definitely wanted to do it so, better late than ever. I restricted myself to books on my already read shelves and none starting with “the” just to make it tougher. 😉

TheDaysGoBy Great job! 👍🏻 2mo

My Struggle, Book Four | Karl Ove Knausgaard
post image

While I don‘t resonate with everything he says, Karl Ove captures nicely the awkwardness of being an adolescent boy, maybe one who thinks all his friends have had sex while he hasn‘t but is desperate to, one who is always second-guessing what the girls are thinking, etc. Brilliant writing.
