Flora has anterograde amnesia. She is 17 but hasn't been able to form new memories since the age of 10. She writes down everything she needs to remember — in a notebook, on scraps of paper, on her hands. Then she unexpectedly forms a new memory she can hold on to longer than ever.
⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

Kenyazero This sounds like an interesting (but difficult) read! 2w

Look Who's Back | Timur Vermes

This book is set in Berlin, 2011, where the 56-years-old Hitler unexpectedly finds himself. It is hilarious and morbid at the same time, and sometimes frighteningly realistic.

Never Let Me Go | Kazuo Ishiguro
post image
Pickpick

This was a story with a uniquely eerie atmosphere — there are people who are being bred to later donate their vital organs, but the story is not so much about that, it focuses more on the characters and their bringing up at this boarding school, how they drift apart and then find each other again later on, and how they cope with the fact that they're going to have to donate their organs sooner or later.

This took quite a while to finish due to the arrival of my PS5, a week of vacation and a 3-day reenacting event. 🙄 I wouldn't call it 'fast-moving' as a blurb says on the back, but I liked it well enough.

Alice, mother of three, finds a strange man on the beach outside her house in a 'fugue state', a temporary loss of memory. A grisly story is slowly emerging as he's regaining his memories.

Disappearing Earth | Julia Phillips
post image
Pickpick

This book took me to a place I never read about before: the distant peninsula of Kamchatka. The story loosely follows the events unfolding after the kidnapping of two young girls and deals with many different aspects of life on the peninsula: the tension between Russians and indigenous people, the conversion to a new way of life after the collapse of the USSR, or the difficulty of leaving the peninsula and restarting life elsewhere. 👇🏻

starlight97 The story lines and characters were so loosely connected that sometimes it felt more like an anthology than a novel, but in the end it all came so neatly together. ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

Jamie Conklin is a kid born with an unusual talent: he can see dead people for a few days after they die. The interesting part is that the dead must tell him the truth, whatever he asks.

An interesting alternative historical fiction novel that plays with the idea of how things would've been had Hungary won the 1848-49 war of independence against the Habsburgs. Elaborately detailed internal affairs and foreign politics, economic and social relations spiced up with spying, gunfights and bombings.

Oh man, this really is a chronicle. So here comes my #unpopularopinion: I don't mind reading a chunkster if there's good reason for it to be a chunkster. This whole 660 pages was just the beginning of Kvothe's life story which was interesting enough but I still felt like it could've been told in half the amount of pages and still not feel rushed. 🤷🏻‍♀️

“Meat with a first and last name tastes best!” - Such is the way in this world where animals' flesh became inedible due to a virus and people are being bred for slaughter. It is sick and disgusting and brilliant, I was loudly 'ugh'-ing more than once while listening. Do not read while eating!

Someone recommended this book to me, saying that if I don't like it he's willing to pay its price back to me. Well, I did like it, but maybe my expectations were a bit too high. The twist at the end was masterful but it felt a bit too drawn-out to me.

Neverwhere | Neil Gaiman

This was my first book by Gaiman and i really enjoyed his style. I would've loved to get to know more about London Below though, the world of the lost and forgotten, about how it came to be, how did things “fall through the cracks“. Maybe in the sequel...?
⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

starlight97 But I can't stop thinking, wasn't the Marquis's death irrelevant? He got the information he wanted about who killed Door's family, sure, and he managed to get back to them and he did save Richard from Lamia indeed but Door would've fooled Islington without the two of them there, right? 9mo
starlight97 Or maybe Door, Croup and Vandemar might not have gotten to the end of the labyrinth without Hunter killing the Beast? But Hunter would've gone with them if the Marquis wasn't there... ugh. 9mo
