It‘s 10am. Time for my morning coffee break and a read session. Hubby got it for me the other day when he watched a story about this edition on tv and knew it would interest me. I chose well and he chose well ☺️🥰🧕🏾📚📺☕️

Kids and I decided to fly over and surprise my mum for her 68th birthday. She was surprised 😮🥰We went to Serbia with one suitcase and we came back with two. In suitcase #2, books and snacks... essentials really. Our 5-day trip was a complete success! 🇬🇧✈️🇷🇸🎂📚 🧳 👩‍👧‍👦🍫🥜

Today‘s buy. Went in for 2 minutes on purpose as I wanted to keep my book count at only 12,976,336. Came out 5 minutes later with these three plus Educated that I already wrapped as a present for a dear friend. Driving home, thought to myself ‘who the hell am I kidding?!?!‘ One book... please... 🙄

Friday off school due to snowfall in southwest England. We started the day with some snowballing, snowman making in the garden right after our brekkie. Now we have coffee and more good food on the go, Ludo, toys, books and drawing while cat is napping on the footrest by the radiator. Easy does it. 🥾🧤🧣❄️⛄️🛋☕️🧸🖍🐾🥰

Awaiting for Litsy to add ‘Well, Thank You Very Much‘ (my translation) by Marko Vidojkovic. It‘s an sf novel about parallel universe where Yugoslavia never fell apart, we‘re all rich and healthy and doing well. I‘d love to find a door to that universe! 👀 Hilarious, entertaining yet serious and provocative. Love it! Daring Greatly ☺️

Nigdje, niotkuda | Bekim Sejranovi?
post image

Now, I don‘t know if this book has been translated but I hope it will be if it hasn‘t. It‘s a thought provoking and emotional blend of family and the late 20th century Balkan history intertwined with the refuge and immigrant questions of where are we going from and where do we go to. Nowhere to, from nowhere (Nigdje, niotkuda).

Maintaining our bilingualism. Reading Serbian children authors and good translations in both, Latin alphabet and Cyrillic. It‘s cool to see how they connect their knowledge, create links, analyse and compare. Human 🧠 is amazing! I‘m jealous 😋

Loving this debut novel. Close to home but with brand new insightw. It is imaginative, innovative, fun but also disturbing and multilayered. Two inseparable yet incomparable stories and lives. One of my favourite reads this year. Recommend 👌 #debutnovels #debut #newauthor #LGBT #booksintranslation #diversereads

A beautiful and entertaining read that can be used every day as a reminder to take a moment and be mindful. Also, as an essential prompt for ‘why can‘t we have ice lollies for breakfast?‘-conversations, especially when they happen six mornings in a row... 🤨 #BreatheAndCountTo10

I know I‘m in minority here but I loved the first half and then just got disconnected as if there was a part of the book invisible to me. Beautiful and provocative writing on a difficult, current and important subject but it seems that Cora and I didn‘t click in the right way. 🧐🤔💭

This one surprised me and I didn‘t know what to expect. Story told by Shunsuke, the salaryman and by a silicon doll. Written by an awesome Brazilian but set in Tokyo. Gripping and disturbing, insightful and short. Worth a read, recommend. 😮🤷‍♀️🇯🇵🇧🇷#surprise #booksintranslation #diversereads

We visited some friends recently and they were left, through some (un)fortunate circumstances, a whole private library with some of the books dated 1888, 1892, 1896, 1902, 1903, etc. At one point during dinner, they tell me ‘You should go and check those books. Take whatever you desire...‘ I came home with three big boxes 😍. This was closest to my dream come truej of inheriting a library 📚 🙃❤️😊📦📦📦📜🌈🦄💃

Mr B‘s Emporium of Reading Delights. That is the #bookstore you simply must visit if you are anywhere near Bath in the southwest England. Tourist in England? Yes. Where to go? UNESCO protected Bath. What to see? Mr B‘s Emporium... Mr B‘s is, fortunately, only 16 miles away from my house and my first stop in Bath. My today‘s purchase there (although I always feel like buying the whole place) is close to my Yugoslav-born heart ❣📚🛁👁❤️

quote
Biljana

'It was to understand that in order for a body to be reborn and re-yoked, first it needed to be destroyed and freed. It was emancipation and it was slavery, the ashes and the phoenix. It was beauty and destruction, it was that old trick. That was the contract.'

I am not sure about this one. Some parts I loved and others, I dreaded. Undecided about the book but loved the quote.
