Couldn‘t find a proper translation so here I go reading in german... Dictionary ready. This series was referenced by an author I love, Magda Szabò, and so curiosity had me.

julesG I've never read it. Only watched the films when I grew up to reenact them with friends in the fields around our home. 😁 Let me know what you think about it. And, don't hesitate to ask should you stumble upon a strange phrase. 4w

The two on top are new to me and bought by impulse today, Sophie Podolski's have been on my wishlist since it was released, and finally arrived in the mail. There's a heavy thunderstorm also known as perfect reading weather outside. Me and miss Molting-season will have a perfect evening under a blanket.

On point perspective of an ordinary life and the struggle against mortality. The lies, the greed, the unnoticed forsaken duties are all portrayed. Easily transferrable to any time and country, a human truth of how we must face death, and so we must live good lives, even if we don't really excist in ourselves until the 11th hour. I love this story as much as its' author.

The Sisters Brothers | Patrick DeWitt

Western but not spaghetti, some strange merge of genres, that at first I did not know what to make of. I still don't, but I liked it, and think a lot of people ought to read it.

P vegne av venner: essay | Kristopher Schau

"New to me book" for RAT bingo, nice smallish break

The book is about the amazingly crazy musician (who I've been in touching range of haha) and how he decided to attend funerals arranged by the public. People who had no one else to see to their final resting place. Have no expectations, just picked it up randomly.

Can't believe I've been literate for 21 years and this, is my first time in discworld!

Aimeesue It won't be your last! This one's not my favorite, but the books get better as they go. I'm a little envious of all the fun you have ahead of you. 7mo
Tex2Flo Disc world was a recent find for me, too. Love the th absurdity of it all. (edited) 7mo

Started this on top of many other open books. Figured I needed a change and this audiobook provides it by both genre and voice. And it is perfect from the first "page"! Thanks Litsy for bringing this book my way. (Also what even possessed me to think I was cured of reading more than one at the same time?)

Slajaunie You will never be cured but that is okay. 🤪 7mo

I Hid My Voice | Parinoush Saniee
Pickpick

Even at work I had to hide away to read a few pages, and I didn't sleep until it was over. (Under interesting cicumstances this book also joined me in the ER) it is such a competent story about what it means to be a sensitive child/person, what true genius is, and family relations both good and bad. This is one of those very honest novels. It tells a truth and doesn't try to be more than it is.

M.V Whohoo thanks 😄🌷 7mo

This book is a mystery to me, does anyone who sees this post know anything about it? I find nothing on neither author or book other than that it's deemed culturally important!

Chess Story | Stefan Zweig
Pickpick

Absolutely brilliant, masterfully lined with simultaneously different meanings. That feeling of being able to tell many moves ahead in chess, chased through my body as I was reading this. And not because it was predictable, no, because it invoked a certain sensation of intuition.

I was picking books from the shelves of the library, first thinking they where at random, afterwards noticing they have a lot in common. All have "women" in their titles as the most eyecatching. A good warm up for the 8th?
