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. 👍🏻 1mo
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 ❤️ 1mo

I adored The Warbride‘s Scrapbook and was sad to learn my library didn‘t carry this one. I lucked out and found a copy on eBay for $3! So excited when I realized it was set in my fave time period, the 1920s. I love everything about this book: the story told in scrapbook format, with detours at Vassar, the Mauretania and Paris. Worth reading and I‘m definitely glad I own it. 5⭐️ Highly recommended!

You can justify anything if you do it poetically enough.

Any Litsy writers out there? What's your favorite genre to write in? Or your favorite subject to write about?

I can't get enough of pirates! 😍 ☠

So, writing books about pirates is a lot harder than it looks! I had to dive into oceans of research to get the most realistic and accurate portrayals of pirates, even though my new series is a historical fantasy. But this book was definitely one of my favorite sources of inspiration! ☠

Very good. Love the powerful imagery used in all parts of this book especially the War parts as you feel immersed in the action. Also love the beautiful love story which lasts down the generations. Highly recommended as it stays with you for a long time.
