The Book Thief | Markus Zusak

"People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spot blues. Murky darkness. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them."

The main character almost annoyed me, but as the story developed I could see her side. There were twists I did not expect, and the story was intriguing, even if disturbing.

I don't know how I feel about this book... It can definitely be classified as a collection of weird anecdotes. 😁 At times I laughed so hard I cried, but then some times it felt she was trying too hard to be funny.
However, the way she described how her mental illness feels and affects her was very honest and real. Chapters We Are Better ThanGalileo. Because He's Dead. and The Big Quiz, especially, really hit home for me.

I can't possibly put into words how good this book was - I suck at writing reviews. 😝 But the story was very captivating, bringing up some touching issues like motherhood, race and social class. I also enjoyed Celeste's writing style, showing different points of view.

I entered #goodreads 2018 challenge around September, and I did not have high hopes for myself. I'm still glad I read 12 books last year though.
Hopefully this new year I'll read more often!

I love Bunmi's writing, the book has plenty of witty, funny moments, but the main character is so hard to like- or even sympathize with. The amount of work she puts towards pretending she is someone she is not to impress some unknown mom's on an online group just made me think would be time better spent accepting her messy, but down to earth life style.
It's still a fun read, but I had expected better.

I'm not an avid reader. I don't read hundreds of books in a year. I don't collect books (lack of space mainly). But there is something about these "time travel" objects that are absolutely fascinating to me.

I have mixed feelings about this book... It caught my attention right away, and at times there was so much suspense I could not put it down, but there were some confusing twists in the story and it also dragged in some parts. Let's just say I wouldn't not read it. 😁

My #favouritebook this year! It pulled me right in, I had never read anything like this before. Any recommendations of similar books are welcome.

DanTheClam If you liked the writing style, and different perspective, try ‘Room‘ by Emma Donoghue, which I found quite similar in style and equally as enjoyable :) 12mo
kayo @DanTheClam Thank you for the recommendation, I read Room a few years ago. It was an interesting read. :) 12mo

This was the first ebook I purchased, and it did not disappoint.

ChristySevern I have the ebook too but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet 😣😕 I think a part of me is not ready for the seriousness of it despite knowing it's a super important book... I'll get to it eventually lol 13mo
kayo It is an important topic, but it's such an easy read, I enjoyed it! 13mo
