Ti is szoktatok egyszerre több könyvet olvasni? 

Engem olyannyira beszippantottak ezek a remek nyári regények, hogy úgy döntöttem, nem döntök, és párhuzamosan teszem őket magamévá.  Kimberley Freeman Csillagok az óceán felett szerzeménye /Athenaeum/ valami hihetetlenül magával ragadó, egyszerűen képtelenség letenni. Az èrtèkelèst már olvashatjátok is a blogon 

A hèten Budapestet vettem a nyakamba a Kolibri Kiadó hiánypótló és rendkívül egyedi kötetével, mely igazi nosztalgikus csemege a fővárosban töltött egyetemi éveim után. 
Miközben bevettem a Várnegyedet, természetesen szakítottam időt egy könnyed boldogan éltek, míg meg nem haltak stílusú Katie Fforde kalandra is /Libri Könyvkiadó/. Ajànlò hamarosan!

Sixth book of #2019 - 'Break Point' by James Patterson 4.5/5 

This is the first Bookshot and James Patterson book I have read and I loved it. I read it in two sittings and enjoyed the fast paced and engaging story. 
Despite the fact this was such a short read, the author was able to build up the characters and suspense very well so that the reader feels they have read a worthwhile story. The finale was unexpected and emotional. Highly recommend!

🇬🇧/🇳🇱
🇬🇧 Hello everybody! Do you guys ever read short stories? I must admit that I hardly do, but I really did enjoy these short summer romances.️ I loved that they were all very different and ofcourse I preferred some over others, but the majority of them I liked. It was also quite interesting to switch writing styles so quickly, because every story was written by a different writer. And can we just talk about this cute book cover? It makes me a little sad being reminded of amazing summer weather because in The Netherlands the weather at the moment is all kinds of crap. But apparently next week will be better! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
🇳🇱 Hallo allemaal! Lezen jullie wel eens korte verhalen? Ik moet bekennen dat ik dat zelf bijna nooit doe, maar van deze korte zomerverhalen heb ik erg genoten.️ Ik vond het tof dat ze allemaal zo verschillend waren, en natuurlijk vond ik sommige verhalen beter dan anderen maar het grootste deel vond ik leuk. Het was ook interessant om zo snel te wisselen van schrijfstijl, vanwege het feit dat elk verhaal door een andere schrijver is geschreven. En kunnen we het ook nog even hebben over deze schattige boekenkaft? Het maakt me wel een beetje verdrietig om aan dit geweldige zomerweer herinnerd te worden aangezien het weer hier in Nederland drie keer niks is. Maar volgende week wordt het blijkbaar beter!

🇫🇷 J’aime la temporalité paradoxale de l’été: le rythme ralenti, alourdi par la fatigue & la chaleur, & pourtant les semaines passent si vite! En vacances depuis à peine 10 jours: je vole quelques heures de lecture au soleil en laissant les heures de sieste défiler, je vais courir le longs des sentiers solitaires, je passe de précieux moments avec ma petite sorcière qui a déjà 6 mois. & je me suis délectée des pages de #sallyrooney: je ne m’attendais pas à ce livre, sa subtile intelligence & sa tendre ironie, la liberté sans compromis de ses filles qui embrassent avec finesse la complexités des relations familiales, amoureuses & amicales. Il donne à espérer & renforce ma confiance en l’étrange pouvoir que porte la littérature. 🇬🇧 Summertime is somewhat paradoxical: days are slowed down by the heat & my overall tired state & yet weeks seem to flash by. I’ve been on holidays for 10 days, stealing a few hours to read in the sun while the world around is napping, to run free in the wild & share precious moments with my little witch who’s turned 6 months already. & I feasted on @sallyrooney6‘s tender pages. I wasn’t expecting this book: its subtlety, its tender irony, the uncompromising freedom of its girls who chose to live fully the complexity of friendship, live affairs & family life. It gives hope, it makes me trust even more in the uncanny power of literature. —————

Just back from a big family holiday to Inca in Mallorca at the beautiful Eden Son Frare Villa (13 of us!) to celebrate some big birthdays. Lots of fun and hilarious times, not least the lilo races and I also got deeply absorbed into another fave authors book, The Family Upstairs, which I’ll be talking about in my blog tomorrow. Once again a truly awesome book from @lisajewelluk with great colourful characters and an unusual imaginative story, absolutely loved it! Hope you’re all enjoying your summer adventures and don’t forget to share at #mycurioussummer summer, ️

Lecture du week-end. Très beau récit de #RichardFord qui convoque ses souvenirs pour dessiner la vie avant lui de ses parents, leur influence sur sa vie, la vie de veuve de sa mère pendant 20 ans. Le livre est écrit en deux parties, la première consacrée à ce père absent du lundi au vendredi et comment la vie quotidienne s’est tissée autour de cette absence. La seconde partie est consacrée à sa mère et principalement aux années qui ont suivi la mort du père, comment elle a réussi à trouver de l’intérêt à une vie pour elle, sans mari et sans fils, un fils à l’université, puis un fils marié. Plus que touchant, je trouve le récit très honnête et qui interroge la fidélité de la mémoire et la filiation en imaginant ce qu’ont pu être les espoirs, les peurs, les désirs de ces étrangers qu’on appelle parents.

Book Review (for now) - The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
.
Have you ever had an it's not you, it's me relationship with a book?  With Hugo Cabret and I, the problem must be with me because there's certainly nothing wrong with the book.
.
Hugo Cabret, a novel in words and pictures, has some of the most beautiful artwork and movie stills I've seen in a graphic novel (scroll left for images). Unlike some graphic novels where the quality of the artwork surpasses that of the story, Hugo Cabret has both, each complementing the other beautifully. It's a tender, spellbinding story of secrets, loss, discovery, and redemption. Right from the outset it addresses you, the reader, and warmly incorporates you into the telling of the story. (I love when books do that!) It's got achievement through perseverance, which I'm a sucker for.  Mystery and magic?  Yep, it's got that too.
.
So what's the problem? Well, I feel like I was dragging my feet to get through this one. I finished it, but it took much longer than it should have. I kept getting distracted and finding other things to do. This has been a difficult year for me with family and work drama, making it harder to focus on reading. I've needed books with more compelling or engrossing story lines, but haven't wanted anything too heavy because one can only handle so much emotional weight at a time. Hugo Cabret is not heavy. But it wasn't compelling enough to grab me by the eyeballs and command my attention. And so I drifted.
.
To extend the relationship analogy, I'm sure Hugo Cabret and I will meet again some day.  In fact, I look forward to it - when things have calmed down and we can start over again, fresh. Some books deserve that, and this one certainly does. So, until the reread...
.
Have you ever felt this way about a book?  I'd love to hear about it.

Team stare książki czy nowe? Mi jakoś trudno się określić 🤷‍️. Z jednej strony mam antyczne wręcz wydania niektórych książek (jak powieści Musierowicz z lat 70.) i jestem do nich tak przywiązana sentymentalnie, że nie wyobrażam sobie mieć ich nowych wersji. Z drugiej - w bibliotece ta najbardziej zakurzona i zżółknięta wersja zawsze przegra z nową okładką . Co czytacie przy niedzieli? Przymierzam się właśnie do trzeciej części „Stulecia winnych”, ale najpierw chyba wycieczka do jedynej otwartej Biedry w Krakowie

Have you ever had one of those days that you wanted to do absolutely nothing? Yes, it's pure bliss, especially with a book. That's why today at MM, we're spotlighting Dear Daughters by @susiedavis of @acfellowship. Read along with us by grabbing a copy of her book at Amazon and until then, unwind with this book excerpt in the link in the bio. Book quote below. There you go, one of our MM summer picks, but we want to know, what are you reading this summer? Let us know in the comments below! Happy reading! - Sarah. I’ll leave you with Thérèse de Lisieux’s words. She says, 'Holiness consists simply in doing God’s will, and being just what God wants us to be.' Here is what God wants me to be today: a garden-tender, an errandrunner, a house-tidier, a note-writer, a wife, a daughter.

I am reminded that when I am doing those simple, little things, I am pleasing him.

I hope this was a reminder to you too. @abingdonpressbooks

I just added Joe Biden’s Promise Me, Dad, to my #KnowYourCandidate2020 challenge. This book took me into the life of The Biden’s. It was interesting to learn about the family dynamic and how close knit they were. I was surprised when Biden shared his frustrations with the healthcare system in America and the hoops they had to jump through to get treatment for his son’s cancer. It’s crazy that even the Vice President’s son is not immune to all the healthcare bureaucracies. Overall a good inside look into Biden’s upbringing and history. I would like to follow this up with something that touches more on his views on policies which I know have progressed over the years.

I love this genre of domestic suspense novel because while it  keeps you guessing and is full of tension, twists and turns... it’s also plausible because the characters are regular folk. Families and friends instead of professionals like detectives or James-Bond style characters. Therefore to me it’s more relatable, yet still gives me the thrill of a mystery. This book is a case in point. I especially loved the setting at a summer camp run by a family, and their tangled history that slowly comes unravelled during the novel. Secrets can form a bond of sorts, yes...but the truth will out in the end, and then what? 🤭The ending came as a surprise and altogether, it hit the excitement-at-a-safe-distance note I had a hankering for. By the way I was interested to learn the author is a Canadian lawyer. #domesticsuspense

When I reviewed The Swallows by Lisa Lutz for Booktrib I thought, yet again, about how one cannot forget what male supremacy does to females. Lutz's novel takes place at a fictive boarding school where the girl students are subjected to cruel treatment. We're immediately drawn into the drama and the price of revenge. *

GRAPHIC NOVEL PERSEPOLIS “In life you'll meet a lot of jerks. If they hurt you, tell yourself that it's because they're stupid. That will help keep you from reacting to their cruelty. Because there is nothing worse than bitterness and vengeance... Always keep your dignity and be true to yourself.” – Advice to Marjane from her grandmother.// .
.
.
 Persepolis is author's autobiographical graphic novel. Volume 1 is about her childhood in Iran during the Islamic Revolution until her parents sent her to study in Austria in order to get away from the turmoil. When I read about other countries' politics and history, the stories seem distant, but when I read it from one child's perspective, it gave me a different impression. 
The book is funny and poignant. One thing is certain, I will read the vols. 2-4.// Have you read it or watched the movie? .

Way behind on posting my summer reads, so my Instagram might go into overdrive the next week or so. I dragged out my HP re-read a bit because I was enjoying it so much, but now it's done and the books are back in the overpriced chest from Barnes & Noble. Reading this series again has made me appreciate the books' themes, world building and careful, intricate plotting even more and Deathly Hallows ties it together so perfectly. Plus, The Prince's Tale and King's Cross chapters are just so darn good. Reminding myself to not wait another six years before reading again! #instareads #summerreads #hp #ravenclaw

If you’re looking for a good, fun summer read in these last couple weeks pick up the Broken Hearts & Revenge books. I actually did the opposite and read them at the very beginning of this year during the winter but boy did it make me long for the warmer weather.

This would make such a fun Netflix film. You got the beach setting, a love story, a redemption arc gone wrong, and lots and lots of revenge.

Artemis by Andy Weir 
I don’t know about y’all, but I love some realism with my science fiction. The Martian oozed realism, and that’s what drew me to another of Weir’s books. Artemis was a little bit different though... not necessarily in a bad way, but in a way I didn’t want it to be. The mobster-based plot felt a little heavy to me, because I would’ve enjoyed it if it has revolved more around the science-y stuff. Like The Martian did! That being said, I still enjoyed this read. Overall, it was just okay, but still captivating and entertaining. The narrator, Jazz, was a pain in the rear though. Totally unlikable. But I guess that’s part of what makes her an effective character. 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Saturdays are for family . Today I had a girls day with my sister, cousin and aunt. It was nice to get out and spend time with them away from the men that out number me daily. But I have to say coming home to them is always amazing.

Logan has been reading a lot today. We have read Crock Hunt multiple times and he just made us read the Marvel Alphabet three times. I love listening to him get excited over the Marvel Universe, reading and the alphabet! .

I'm back! 
The social media detox was needed SO badly.  Addiction is real ya'll! 
I read 15 books since I unplugged.  I have a lot to share with you.  Some were great, some okay and a few doozies too.

Remember I mentioned I lost a book I was reading.  Well when we were cleaning out the car to pack the car I found it!  So of course it was the first book I had to finish. 
Mended was okay. My favorite part was in the beginning and her example with the pitcher ( not going to share in case you read it ). Book #18 focused on picking up the pieces when you are broken.  I think I can't give this book a true fair rating as I didn't read it fluidly.  Had I not lost it I think I may have another opinion.  Don't let this keep you from reading it though!

|We Are Displaced|~From her own home in the Swat Valley to other accounts of refugee girls who share their own stories of strength and resilience. I am once again in awe and inspired by @malala . No words can give this book or this woman justice. ️Her movement and activism in promoting education for young girls and for anyone for that matter gives me chills. I am touched and moved and ashamed at how I realize I could be more grateful for the life I have. It’s definitely taken for granted the ability to have an education without running to school looking over your shoulder in fear or listening at night for bombs and gunshots. This is so relatable to the anti-immigration movement being led by Trump and the rest of the US who is against welcoming anyone. Give this book a read, share about it, buy it, tell your local library to buy it and just borrow it, but all proceeds made from the book profit go to fund children’s education in war torn countries. Rate: / (that’s how good it was, btw I read this in a day in between studying so clearly I was hooked!!)🤭

The last of my summer reads included some notable ones. I’d have to say my greatest pleasure was found in reading Art of the Commonplace. This book is a compilation of agrarian essays. I’ve grown to love the prose of Wendell Berry. When I read his words my heart aches and I’m brought to new places of thought and reflection. While I don’t agree with all of his points, he does cause one to think deeply about how they live, think, act and interact with the community and all of creation that surrounds them. “In this state of total consumerism - which is to say a state of helpless dependence on things and services and ideas and motives that we have forgotten how to provide ourselves - all meaningful contact between ourselves and the earth is broken. We do not understand the earth in terms either of what it offers us or of what it requires of us, and I think it is the rule that people inevitably destroy what they do not understand.”


I also thoroughly enjoyed the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Shaffer. A book centered around the love for reading and the importance and impact of great literature in the lives of all, even the unsuspecting folk of Guernsey...how hearts and minds of the individual are shaped and communities thus transformed. The best of the fiction I read this month   1. A grief observed (I paired this reading with Becoming Mrs. Lewis and gained entirely new insight. Highly recommend this pairing)
2. Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Callahan
3. What if it’s true by Charles Martin. 4. How to Raise an Adult by Lythcott-Haimes 5. The art of the commonplace by Wendell Berry 6. The Guernsey and Literaey Potato peel society by Shaffer 7. Seabiscuit by Hillenbrand (excellent)
8. The end of reason by Zachariahs

On the way for a swim in the bay, I put a copy of The Last Book Party in the little free library at Corn Hill beach, with a note on the title page asking whoever reads it to sign and date it and return the book to another of Truro’s little free libraries when done. I have this crazy idea that some time next summer I’ll come across the book again at another little free library at another beach. (Oh, and thank you to the person who left a copy of Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney!)

Liane Moriarty had me hooked from the second I opened ‘Big Little Lies’ a few years ago while traveling to Germany. I had purchased the book on a whim in the Atlanta airport and couldn’t put it down. So I only found it natural to pick up ‘Truly Madly Guilty’ when I saw it on a “summer reads” table at my local bookstore. This book did not disappoint! From the very first chapter it made me eager to find out what happened at a seemingly normal barbecue on a beautiful day. It kept me guessing with its plot twists and multiple story lines. It shows that everyone makes mistakes, and sometimes they come back to haunt you. #summerreads #read #ilikebigbooksandicannotlie

For any of you that have read this book, you might get the Happy Chef reference in the background! Kitchens of the Great Midwest was a really nostalgic book for me since I grew up in Minnesota. It had so many great references to the state and it was fun to figure out the real names of some places Stradal referenced - I believe the old money lake lodge Hutmacher’s is really Lord Fletcher’s?? The story line is so unique in this book, as the reader learns about and sees the main character grow through points of view of many other characters. If you’re from Minnesota, this is a must read. If you’re not from here, it is still a fantastic read that reminds you we never really know what other people have been through or are going through. Plus, you might get a few good old Minnesota recipes while you read! •

I was craving a good biography and my buddy read with the lovely Ash @mydarlingbookshelf and the gang gang couldn’t have arrived at a better time. I’ve only read a quarter of Three Women but so far it’s pretty darn thought provoking and hard to put down. I only wish I had ordered the North American cover that everyone else has instead of this one. So shallow of me right?

“Deep blue, and black, the Isthmus is in my memory; blue sky above, with seldom a cloud to break it; and always on the right, black plunging rocks with their feet in a blue sea. The pink dusty road before us, the scrub and the dark pines, lay always between these depths of blue. The sea was calm; as one looked down, it drowned the eye like a second zenith, but bluer still; bluer than lapis, or sapphire, or whatever flower is bluest; and then again, in the dark clear shadows round the deep roots of the rocks, green and grape-purple, like the ring-dove’s sheen. It must have been seldom I stood in quiet to gaze at it. My eye was sharpened for other matters. Yet it is the blue that I remember.” // Oof, a scene so perfectly rendered you reread it three times before you can move your eyes to the next paragraph. The King Must Die was first published in 1958. It tells the story of Theseus, from his childhood as a fatherless princeling to facing his destiny with the Minotaur. The writing is beautifully detailed and the story is surprisingly clever in its interpretation. I couldn’t find a single place where the writing lacked or the plot dragged. It’s the most enjoyable book I’ve read all summer, a perfect companion for a long late summer day with cicadas singing in the trees at dusk.
