Got it yesterday, and already it's half done... I needed something light, readable and full of intrigue, especially since I have Knausgård to read afterwards. ❤❤❤ Have you read it?

This was truly a strange, beautiful and often sorrowful book. I loved this book! The magic realism of the writing is completely enchanting, and I truly do love family sagas. The writing is so lyrical, so simplistic yet beautiful and it is easy to get lost in this tale of love and loss. Also, it is one of those books that almost broke me by the end... This will be one of those books that stay with me.

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover
post image
Pickpick

This book was seductive and shattering at the same time. It deals with a single aspect of domestic violence we still don‘t know how to talk about – why do women stay in violent relationships (and not just women!)? Why don‘t they just leave? I believe this book managed to answer this question or at least give it a good shot.

Children of Time | Adrian Tchaikovsky
post image

Tchaikovsky understands good writing, and he understands the science behind his work. The level of familiarity and knowledge he has as professional of zoology is so remarkable in this book and for the first time, I felt I understand these creepy, alien creatures we refer to as spiders. The ending was perfect, inspirational and emotional. I truly wish there were more books like this one.

OhNoMersault Already stacked but I am so jazzed about this one with every review I read. 2y

Ng‘s writing style is so unique and masterful, the characters and their stories came alive easily. The true power of this book is that it tackles some very hard questions, and not really answering them it just made me uncomfortably squirm in my own thoughts, decisions, life views… Shaker Highs is a progressive, liberal community, who still seems to fall in all the traps (and tropes) of close-mindedness and fear.

OhNoMersault The fact that none of the characters really seem to learn anything or amend their behavior felt so true to the socio-economic setting. 2y
BooksRockMyWorld I agree... if it ended any other way I would have not appreciate the book like i did. 2y

It is a great book to pick up when you need something immersive and exciting, but also very easy to read. The language Sanderson uses is simple and fluent, but the world he built is deep and complex, which makes this a really, really fun.

The Fate of the Tearling | Erika Johansen

Pickpick

This was a difficult book. It systematically devours your every expectation on how the story will develop. Story is hectic, messy, cringworthy, bloddy... I think even the author struggled a lot. Also, it is not your tipical coming of age YA fantasy story.
The value of this book(s) is in its ideas. Amazing, enormous ideas that resonate deeply in these modern times. Pursuit of utophia. Value of empathy. Bravery in utter loss.
A beautiful book. ❤

Across the Universe | Beth Revis

Mehso-so

So, this was an ok book. Readable, often sweet, rarely confusing, had a little social commentary and is setting up a larger story within the trilogy. characters were ok, even though sometimes annoying, not too deep but not too shallow.
All in all, I'm not giving this book a lower score because it's unpretentious and doesn't aim high, while being consistent.
Pick it up when you need a fast, easy read, but not much more than that.

anj-neophyte This book sort of reminds me of the up coming movie Passengers. :) 3y
