Beautiful language, great storytelling and interesting plot. This would be a pefect 5 🌟 book for me, if it wasn't so anti-feminist.

I have read hardly any German/ Austrian Literature since school. When I once criticised it for beeing mostly too dark and terrible, my German teacher told me that there will come a right time to read certain authors/books. I feel like the time to read Horvath has come for me. He was one of my least favourite authors in school, so let's see how it goes...

Sarah83 Really? Haven't seen a Thalia like that. The ones I know have a lot of green in their decoration 5mo
tina_b.ooks @Sarah83 It's the one Thalia I like. I usually prefer independent bookstores, but English books aren't that easy to get in Vienna and this one has at least a bit of a selection and is almost in front of my doorstep. 5mo
Sarah83 I forget that you live in Vienna. 🤣 For sure it looks different.. 5mo
tina_b.ooks @Sarah83 I've actually never payed atention to the way they look, so I couldn't even tell how other Thalia stores look 😅 5mo

Sadly, I hardly have the time and energy at the moment to read during the week. I do listen to a lot of audiobooks, but I wish could actually read more.

This is probably a good book for bookclub or class, as you can find a lot of good starters for discussions, but apart from that... I did neither like the story nor the character(s).

I've been in bed with the flu for the last couple of days, only able to listen to audiobooks. Today is the first day I'm feeling a bit better, so I'm trying to change to print for a bit.

This is a novel about a strict patriachal society living on an island by it's own rules. Reading about the daughters' lives in this comunity was really disturbing and it would often have been hard to cotinue, if it hadn't been for the wonderful style of writing.

This wasn't the most original story I've ever read, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I did't like the male main character at all, or at least not in context of the relationship of the protagonists. However, I think, especially people that are into erotic romance, will have a good time reading this book.
🌟🌟🌟 3/5

Thank you again @LittleBug for giving me this book! I think in future I won't completely avoid the romance section anymore.

Caroline2 Hmm, although I‘d like to take the credit I didn‘t give you that book I‘m afraid! 🤷‍♀️ 9mo

Also, I am not going to buy any books for myself in 2019 🙈

So excited about finally starting this ?

My reading goal for 2019 is to read books by female authors (or books about women/ the life of women) and to learn more about feminism/ feminist movements.
It's not 2019 yet, but I think "Becoming" is the perfect book to start and I don't want to wait any longer...

I wanted to read this book because it's an early dystipian novel (written in 1920) that may or may not have influnced other great dystopies such as "1984" or "Brave New World". However, I didn't like it nearly as much as I wanted to.

I've wanted to do a Harry Potter reread for some time and decided to try the audiobook. I'm happy I made that choice as there seems to be so much to do these days and I haven't really had the energy to read a lot. Hearing this story again was just the right thing at this time.

Lel2403 I think it‘s time for a re-read for me too. Well a listen as I love Stephen Fry‘s narration 11mo
