Also #ColorMePretty #RedAndBlack
Another #Classics That has been on my #TBR
Been wanting to read this epic tale but still waiting to be in the right mood to fully enjoy the writing. And I‘m still looking through different translations to find the one that suit me. I don‘t want to rush but slowly enjoy every details of it .
Are you picky when it comes to translation too? Or just me?

Caroline2 Yes!! I read this awesome article in The Guardian about different translations of Russian novels. Fascinating!! Now I do my research and google the book and different versions to see what people say. 👍🏻 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Caroline2 Oh! I did not realise such article existed! It sounds like one that I‘d love to read about and learn more about how to pick the right translations! I‘ll need to google about it! 😆🙌🏼 Thank you so much for the info ❤️ 4mo

#ColorMePretty #RedAndBlack
Reminded me of this #Fantasy series & first book I‘ve read by VE Schwab. About parallel Londons including Red, Grey & Black London. I was hooked by her writing & magical world building but most of all the characters she created! You might get hooked by the adventure but stay for the villains you‘d end up rooting for!

Sweetkokoro I have to say I like these covers so much more then the usual ones I see floating around at my B&N. I have yet to read it, but I feel I would be more enticed if I had seen these versions on the shelf. 4mo
julesG Loved this series! We do have a lot of books in common, it seems. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Sweetkokoro Haha I normally prefer the US editions but in this case I do love the UK ones better too 😆❤️🖤 Oh I hope you‘ll get to read this soon! I‘ve now read most of her books & love them all! You can order this edition from bookdepository which offers free delivery internationally 👍🏼 4mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG Awww that‘s awesome!! 🤗How lovely we have similar taste in books! 😱💖 I love her YA duology too, which I think is a little under appreciated 😐 Still need to read the new one Vengeful tho🤗 4mo

Day 15: #redandblack
I almost picked a different book and then I saw this and was like yah we are doing that. This is actually my sisters volume and it‘s gorgeous. The story is also super amazing, Bloody and gruesome and just all around great. I originally read it online but having this volume around is so much better.

Crazeedi How are you today? ❤ 4mo
Blueberry @Crazeedi Thanks for asking. I met with a friend today for lunch and bible study and had a great discussion. I'm doing okayyy with my mom passing. My dad also died last year at this time also. That one still gets me sad. It was a stressful trying year with a lot of angry people and lack of communication. Not a happy way for anyone to spend their end time. 4mo

#colormepretty Day 15: #redandblack @sweetkokoro

The first time I read this book, my dad and I had an impromptu contest to see who could finish it first. Needless to say, he underestimated my speed-reading skills ... 😆

BooknerdsLife Love your reading contest with your dad 😂👍🏼 I never underestimate my daughters‘ reading speed tho 😆 4mo
Sunraven @BooknerdsLife: It‘s funny in a certain way — he underestimates me while everyone else seems to think I‘m a vaguely alarming superhuman. Where‘s my Goldilocks to come along and get it just right? 😆 It was fun having the reference point, though, since I don‘t feel fast or slow, I just read how I read. 😉 4mo

Sunraven Wow, flashbacks and warmfuzzies at the same time. I was terribly obsessed with that movie when it was in theaters. ☺️ 4mo

I didn't think I would have nearly as many books for #redandblack as I did, this is only a handful of them! #colormepretty #monday
