Anna Karenina | Leon Tolstoi

My 2022 TBR 🤟🏻🤟🏻
Only 7 books but they're massive 😂 6.299 pages total ❤

From top to bottom

1. L'orda del vento - Alain Damasio
2. A little life - Hanya Yanagihara
3. From here to eternity - James Jones
4. Anna Karenina - Lev Tolstoj
5. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke
6. Winter's Tale - Mark Helprin
7. The priory of the orange tree - Samantha Shannon

Did you read any of these? Did you like them?

UnidragonFrag 😲 the year of chunksters! I haven't read any of these but A Little Life and The Priory of the Orange Tree have been collecting dust on my shelf. Really need to get them read. Anyway, good luck! 3h
Ast_Arslan @UnidragonFrag same of these are in the shelf from years, so I easily relate to you 😂😅 3h
UnidragonFrag @Ast_Arslan there's just so many other good books to read! It really is endless 🥲 3h

HollyBolly Oh boy! Good luck! 3h
Ast_Arslan @HollyBolly thank you 😂🧡 3h
Ast_Arslan @UnidragonFrag and more have to come 😱 that's truly endless 3h
RaeLovesToRead A little life is incredible but full of pain and suffering. I also have priory of the orange tree, Anna karenina and norrell and strange on my to read list. Not sure whether I'll get to them in 2022 though - it took me 18 months to read War & Peace! 3h
Ast_Arslan @RaeLovesToRead a lot of people told me the same about A little life that's why I can't wait to read it 😂 Don't say that, you scare me 😂 I have War & Peace in my list since childhood 😂 3h
RaeLovesToRead 😄 despite the pain and suffering, it is one of those books that you never forget! 3h
AnneCecilie I‘ve read A Little Life, Anna Karenina + Norrell and Strange. I‘ve loved them love. 1h
Ruthiella I love long books because you really LIVE them as a reader! I loved Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell. I‘ve also read Anna Karenina and From Here To Eternity, both of which I appreciated, but occasionally found challenging. (edited) now

That's what we have in Bologna ❤

No other city in the world has as many porticoes as Bologna: they cover more than 38 kilometres only in the historic center, but can reach up to 53 kilometres if those outside the medieval city walls are also considered.
In 2021 the porticoes of Bologna have been declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

'Night is falling everywhere
Rockets hit the fun-fair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But he won't scare you

Hey! Sexy boots
Get on your boots yeah!

Free me from a dark dream
Candy floss, ice cream
All the kids are screaming but the ghosts aren't real
Here's what we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity if joy is real'
