We, the Drowned | Carsten Jensen

Denmark has 8.750km of coastline, and you are never more than 52km away from #thecoast, no matter where you are at. This book (which I haven‘t read) is set in a little coastal town on a small Danish Island, and tells the saga of four generations of men going out to sea, and the families they leave behind.


Mitch I loved this book... 👍🏼 3w
KarenUK That cover is beautiful 😍💕 3w
LeahBergen I‘ve had this book on my shelf for a couple of years now. 😬 3w

Tamra The blurb sounds really interesting, though it‘s a chunkster of an investment. 3w
BarbaraBB Great post! 3w
Henrik_Madsen It is a chunkster but it is not a hard read. I absolutely loved it when I read it after it came out. (It is also a tale of two cities, one oreoccupied with farming and the land, the other one focused on the sea. Jensen sides with the mariners.) 3w
Kalalalatja @Mitch @LeahBergen @Tamra @Henrik_Madsen I have wanted to read it for ages, but for some reason I keep forgetting about it. Good to know, it is worth it! 3w
Cinfhen #pagecountphobia 😱😨but I‘m curious enough to think about it!!! 3w

#wanderingjune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB #walklikeanegyptian This is a book about an Egyptian handmaiden, who I think looks quite like Kate Winslet in her Titanic days 🙂

erzascarletbookgasm She does look alike! 😁 1mo
rubyslippersreads I thought it was Kate Winslet! 😄 1mo

I may or may not be considering some of these books for #sits @Chrissyreadit !

@JaneyWaneyB do you prefer short or long books?

CaramelLunacy I love the quirky voice of 1mo
Cinfhen Lots of interesting titles 1mo
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen 3 of these will give you #pagecountphobia lol! 🤣🤣🤣 (City of Brass 544, River God 704, Nefertiti 432) 1mo

Cinfhen For sure this one 🤪🤪 1mo
Cinfhen I tried reading City of Brass but it was SO HEAVY to lug around and my brother really wanted to read it.... of course he never returned it 1mo
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen I first read City of Brass for #freakyfriday and borrowed from library... I now have books 1 and 2 on my Kindle! 🤣🤣🤣 1mo
Chrissyreadit Those titles seem like good picks! I had to add them to my TBR and I did not even know I was interested in Egypt! 1mo
BarbaraBB Wow, you‘ve had inspiration! Lots of Egyptian themed books 🙌 1mo
JaneyWaneyB @jenniferw88 I was looking at Nefertiti the other day 🤯 great minds 😁 I loved Circe and The Song of Achilles so an Egyptian adventure is right up my street. If I get to page 100 and I'm enjoying the story I always stick with the book no matter the length 1mo
jenniferw88 @JaneyWaneyB 😁🤣😂 well, please don't buy Nefertiti - it's under serious consideration by me to buy lol! Not actually buying anything yet as I'm on holiday next week so won't be in for parcels, but actively looking! 1mo
JaneyWaneyB @jenniferw88 consider me on a book buying ban 🤣...that will last till pay day maybe🤔☺ but I promise to stay away from historical fiction of all kinds. Have an amazing holiday 🌞 1mo

#wanderingjune #londoncalling

If you go #calling in Victorian #london for a call-girl, you might meet our fabulous protagonist Sugar who knows all the ways of wooing. This book shows you behind the scenes and all is not as it seems!

And while we‘re at it - I LOVE The Clash. Probably my favourite band of all time. 😍

BarbaraBB So much London in this book. Great choice. And how cool that you like The Clash so much! 1mo
Cinfhen It‘s still on my TBR but I think I‘ll be adding it to my next book order 😉 1mo
batsy Such a good book! 1mo

Cinfhen I know @Reviewsbylola which is why I keep putting off buying it 🙄#PageCountPhobia 1mo
Cinfhen But you love it @Reviewsbylola and so does @Kalalalatja and @Centique that I think im ready to commit 1mo
Kalalalatja Do it, do it, do it @Cinfhen 👏👏 I promise, the pages will fly by! 1mo
Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi loved it too! @Cinfhen I can‘t think of anyone that didn‘t love it. 1mo
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen I promise you the pages will not be an obstacle once you get started... I didn‘t want it to end! 1mo

#WanderingJune #Russians

A novel by a Russian and set in Russia 🇷🇺
A beautifully rendered story about the pressures of society and how scandal can ruin lives. Lovely movie, too; starring my favorite actress Kiera Knightley!

Centique I just watched Keira in a really sweet movie called Begin Again - if you want a movie recc! I haven‘t seen Anna Karenina yet but I have read it and loved it 😊 1mo
BarbaraBB I loved this book! 1mo
Cinfhen #pagecountphobia maybe I should just watch the film 🎞 🤷🏼‍♀️💜 1mo
CrowCAH @Centique I haven‘t seen that one yet, but a goal of mine is to watch all her movies! 1mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen yes it is a chunksters for sure! 1mo

#Booked2019 ¤ 104F=Summer? ¤ #BooktoMovie

Stretching a wee bit, @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage & @4thhouseontheleft, and using the challenge as an excuse to finally start watching Outlander adaptation. ?

I've read the first three books and have heard glowing reviews of the adaptation being well cast. So much so that every time Jonathan Randall aka "Black Jack" comes on screen, I can hardly watch knowing what's ahead. ? #BookwormProblem ?

Cinfhen Ooohhhh, maybe I should watch adaptation since I‘m never going to read the series #PageCountPhobia 😉 1mo
Karisa @Cinfhen I hear ya! Definitely why I stopped after the third book. It was such a time commitment to start each one. 😂 Adaptation seems to be capturing the first book perfectly--not for the faint of heart. The author was heavily involved. 1mo
Cinfhen Now I‘m really pumped xx thanks 1mo

Susannah I‘ve never seen #pagecountphobia, but I know I have it, @Cinfhen, and will be using it again. 😉 (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen Ha!! @Susannah it‘s REAL!!! And I‘m a long term sufferer 😂 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m okay with the stretch and I will add #pagecountexhaustion to @Cinfhen ‘s hashtag. Last month I read a couple of super long and intense books. Now I can‘t stomach anything over 300 pages. #needabreak 🤪 (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen There‘s something really appealing about a 265 page book @BarbaraTheBibliophage 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen I agree 💯— done in a day or two max! 1mo

TrishB @Cinfhen I loved it 💕 2mo
Reggie @Suet624 Are there crab cakes at the wedding? 😘 @Cinfhen I think you should try it. Once you‘re in it the page count won‘t even matter cause you won‘t want it to end. @gradcat😊❤️ 2mo
Suet624 @Reggie haha. We are in Boulder so I doubt it. 2mo
Reggie @Suet624 Colorado!!!! You know what that means!!!!! Pot brownies for everyone!!!! Lol jk. 2mo
