The Merchant of Venice is undoubtedly anti-Semitic, with anti-Jewish stereotypes, persecuting a Jewish villain. The plot is predictable but how we get to the result/end is worth the read. 3 stars.

My Brilliant Life is about Areum, a 16-year-old boy with a body of an 80-year-old man. He looks like an 80-year-old and has illnesses of people of that age. Knowing that he will die soon due to his sickness, accelerated-aging disorder, he decided to write about his parents love story. Achingly good ending. 4 stars.

When the World was Ours is the story of three life-long friends. They were happy together and living peacefully and then the war came. It turned out to be a happy story for one of them but tragic for the other two. It’s not heavy on facts about the WW2 but good enough to give you an idea of what happened during that part of history. Well-written, engaging and an important story. 4 stars.

Currently Reading

I haven’t finished The Jews yet, I think I still have a hundred or so pages more to go but I am learning a lot from it. I am also currently reading Rules of Civility and as with Amor Towles other books, I am also liking this one.

Reading Next

I plan to read Hamlet, another Shakespeare, this coming week and I am excited to read my first Mario Escobar book, The Teacher of Warsaw. I have his other works but haven’t really tried reading them but The Teacher of Warsaw sounds very interesting to me so we’ll see!

Our Last Days in Barcelona – I did not know that there were other books before this since this is my first Chanel Cleeton read… and definitely not the last. It tells the story of the Perez family and this book’s focus is Isabel and her mother, Alicia. I loved the writing, I loved the characters and the story. I will surely read the other books about the other Perez sisters. Historical fiction has always been my favorite genre and this is one example why. 4.5 stars.

North to Paradise – This is the story of a man’s journey from Ghana to Spain. Inspiring and motivating. 4 stars.

This Time Tomorrow – This is a delightful time travelling story that made me miss my dad so much. In the story, it’s Alice’s 40th birthday, she’s drunk and stumbles in the guardhouse just outside his father’s house. When she woke up, she was mysteriously 16 years old again. I loved Leonard, Alice’s father. I liked Sam, her best friend. I didn’t very much like Alice. I liked the mid-90s references. I liked the father-daughter relationship. I liked the talk about time travel. All in all, a good read. 4 stars.

Currently Reading

I’m almost halfway through The Jews and it is very informative. I’m taking my time reading this as I want to understand it fully. It’s truly an interesting book. I have just started with My Brilliant Life and so far, it’s a compelling read.

Reading Next

I randomly chose both books for my next reads so let’s see what stories they have in store for us!

Remarkably Bright Creatures is a fun, charming and heart-filled story. Tova takes a cleaning job at a local aquarium after her husband and son died and became friends with Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus. Marcellus is old but very witty, a keen observant and senses Tova’s grief and so he becomes a big part of the story. I absolutely love this book. So 5 stars!

The Hacienda was kind of a combination of Rebecca and Mexican Gothic. There were interesting parts of the story like the daily life of the people in the hacienda, the exorcism, the oppression of the Mestizos, however, I didn’t find the story strong enough. I wish it was more creepy, gothic and unpredictable? Plus, it’s a slow read. It was a fine read all in all but not something I’d recommend. 2.5 stars.

Currently Reading

I am currently reading The Jews by Howard Fast and I should say it’s so far, fascinating. Also, I am enjoying Our Last Days in Barcelona by Chanel Cleeton and I must say I like her writing style.

Reading Next

Up next on my reading list: My Brilliant Life by Ae-ran Kim and This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub. Both first reads from these authors.

Growing Up Bin Laden – This is my first book from Jean Sasson. A friend of mine is a big fan of her works and highly recommended to me. It was a fascinating and insightful read about Bin Laden, his family, his beliefs, their culture, etc. 4 stars.

Walking with Ghosts – I have only watched a few of Gabriel Byrne’s films but he definitely is a great actor and after reading his memoir, indeed, he is a gifted writer. I hope he writes more. 4 stars.

I have finally started with Kaikeyi and it is an interesting read so far.

An Unlasting Home – A story that portrays multi-generational women in Kuwait, Lebanon, Iraq and India — their struggles, their history, their choices, etc. 3.5 stars.

The Housemaid – Entertaining. Intriguing. Disturbing. 4 stars.

The Overnight Guest – Told in three different timelines. First in the past where a girl survived a crime, second where a little girl and her mother are locked in a basement and third in the present, a crime novel writer trying to finish her writing when she found a little boy unconscious in the midst of a snowstorm. Not very shocking if you’ve read thrillers before but it’s a fine read. 3 stars.

Lessons in Chemistry –  Adding this to one of my favorite reads so far this year. Refreshing, smart and fun. I literally laughed out loud several times. Beautiful and delightful debut from Bonnie Garmus. 4.5 stars

Growing Up Bin Laden was recommended by a good friend and it is so far, informative and interesting.

I was supposed to start with Kaikeyi a few days ago but I got into Growing Up Bin Laden first so hopefully this week. Also, I found a copy of Walking with Ghosts. I know Gabriel Byrne is a good actor and so I can’t wait to find out his story.

I enjoy Greek mythology retelling but I didn’t find Medusa very exciting. Given that the retelling is from Medusa’s perspective, it could have been far better. 3 stars. 

I came across Galatea, a short story by Madeline Miller who also wrote Circe. I enjoyed reading Circe so I read it without hesitation. It’s quite different from the original story, though. Interesting read but too short that I think it would’ve been better if it was made a novella. 3 stars.

The Future Library is a heart-wrenching short story (or novella?) and I can’t believe it’s actually a real thing. You can check it out here. It talks about nature, love and loss. Very intriguing but also very sad. 4 stars.

It took me three long weeks to finish Hell of a Book. No, it isn’t a bad book. I was actually hooked when I started reading it and I also think it’s creative. But somehow, I lost interest in some parts. 3 stars.

Currently Reading

I’m halfway through Young Mungo and I’m liking it more than Shuggie Bain but let’s see how the second half of the book goes. I’ve also just started with The Porcelain Doll and since I’m not an expert in Russian history/politics, I really appreciate how easy it is to get into it plus also very easy to understand.

Reading Next

Still on my next reads is The Book of Mother, I’m supposed to start with it but haven’t yet so hopefully this coming week. I’m also adding to it An Unlasting Home and The Overnight Guest.

I’m not a big poetry reader but I love Ocean Vuong and Time is a Mother is his second poetry collection and I loved it. 4 stars.

Smaller and Smaller Circles is a fairly mediocre crime novel set in the Philippines. The characters were interesting though I think adding a little bit more of a backstory for Father Saenz would have been better. The ending was very predictable but that’s okay. 3 stars.

I guess I expected too much from The Diamond Eye because I enjoyed The Alice Network a lot. The book is still wonderfully written although repetitive at some parts. I couldn’t totally engage myself in it and I didn’t particularly like any of the characters. But overall, still a good read but somewhat flat at times. 3 stars.

Currently Reading

I’m having a hard time to focus whenever I go back to reading Hell of a Book. I’m not sure why but I feel like it’s not the right time to read it? I dunno but I’ll give it another try this weekend. Anyhow, I’ve started with Young Mungo, the second book from Douglas Stuart (Shuggie Bain). I’ve only read a couple of chapters but I think it’s going to be a great read.

Up Next

Up next on my reading list are The Book of Mother, The Porcelain Doll and Medusa.

The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea was a charming and magical read. There were some parts that I got bored but it ended pretty well for me. 4 stars!

The Dinner Guest started with a murder but of course, a lot of twists comes with it and it definitely had me guessing until the end. I enjoyed this book but I can’t really pinpoint why I can’t rate it higher than 3.5 stars. Hmm…

When the War Came Home is a gentle, heartwarming story set after the war. I adore this book a lot and surely, I will be reading more of Lesley Parr’s works. I loved the ending, too! 4 stars!

The Younger Wife started out strong and surely hooked me but I wasn’t satisfied with the ending and I just cannot overlook how the men here are almost perfect and the women are a mess. 3 stars.

Currently Reading

I’ve read almost a quarter of The Diamond Eye but I am not enjoying it a lot. Maybe I have to read more? I did not make much progress with Hell of a Book, I’m kinda losing interest actually.

Up Next

Can’ wait to start with Ocean Vuong’s new poem collection, Time is a Mother. I also discovered Smaller and Smaller Circles out of nowhere and I’m intrigued. The Book of Mother is on my next reads as well, I’ve been seeing this all over so I hope to get to it, too.

The Authenticity Project has a good premise. It started quite well but I got bored somewhere in the middle and it started to get predictable. It’s not a bad read so I’m still giving it 3 stars.

The Strange Library is a quick read. I was not supposed to read it actually but I suddenly miss reading a Murakami. 4 stars for this little gem.

Currently Reading

I’m looking forward to finishing The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea. Unfortunately, I didn’t make any progress with Hell of a Book but I’ll pick it up again in the weekend. The Dinner Guest keeps me guessing so I’m excited to find out which of my guesses are right. 🙂

Up Next

I’m very enthusiastic to reading The Diamond Eye. I enjoyed The Alice Network before, also by Kate Quinn, so I think I will enjoy this one, too. When the War Came Home is another recommendation so I hope to get to it as well. And I’m excited to get started with Time is a Mother, a collection of poems by none other than Ocean Vuong!

At Night All Blood is Black is bloody and brutal. I’m halfway through it.

Daughter of the Moon Goddess is becoming so predictable, like I’ve already heard a story the same as this before. I hope there’s more excitement and surprises and twists in it.

Ariadne, so far, is so-so.

And so far so good with The Ride of a Lifetime.

The Golden Couple and The Leviathan are both recommendations so I’m looking forward to reading both.

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers is a beautiful, gentle and hopeful story about one’s purpose in life. 4 stars.

The Copenhagen Trilogy by Tove Ditlevsen started quite well for me but I ended up a little disappointed. The writing felt impersonal somehow as I read on considering she’s a poet. So maybe I’ll give this a second read. But still I’m giving it 3 stars.

A Lullaby for Witches by Hester Fox was not as good as I was expecting it to be but it was still a good read. 3 stars.

The Violin Conspiracy by Brendan Slocumb is my favorite read of the week. Wonderful story. Definitely 5 stars!

Currently Reading

Both books started out excellently so I hope to enjoy both to the end.

Up Next

I am interested to read Robert Iger’s The Ride of a Lifetime after reading a lot of good reviews about it. Also, Pandora by Susan Stokes Chapman looks like an exciting read as well, so I hope to get to it next.

i'm thinking of ending things

I’m Thinking of Ending Things was recommended to me and I think this book isn’t for everyone. Creepy. Dark. Puzzling. Sad. It’s easy to spoil it so I will not say anything more.

Currently Reading

I’m more than halfway through A Tale for the Time Being and it’s getting better. I’ve also started reading Fear, another Bob Woodward book. And also, Dear Senthuran by Akwaeke Emezi.

Next Reads

At the moment, I haven’t decided yet what to read next. Actually, I might take a break from reading, maybe for a week or two. Why? I dunno. I just feel I have to but we’ll see.

Anyways, happy reading and keep safe, Homo sapiens!

Number the Stars was a quick read, I’ve finished it in one sitting. 4-stars.

Currently Reading

I’ve made very little progress with Shuggie Bain and The Thing Around Your Neck. Hopefully, I’ll have more time to read during the rest of the week.

Reading Next

Last week, I’ve included The Song of Achilles for my next read, however, I’ve decided to read it sometime in the middle of the year. So I hope I can start with The Memory Police and The Push this weekend.

I am not liking this as much as I expect to like it. Should I go on or not? Any thoughts?

Up Next

I’m so excited to start with Shuggie Bain and The Prisoner of Heaven. I think both will be 5-star reads!

cilka'sjourney

After reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz earlier this year, I was really looking forward to this book, Cilka’s Journey. Cilka was the most interesting character in The Tattooist and so I was very interested in her story. I still didn’t quite like the writing and it felt somewhat unemotional, like in The Tattooist, which don’t really happen to me when reading books relating to the holocaust.

Currently Reading

I’m not enjoying The Ten Thousand Doors of January as much as I’ve anticipated where I’m now a quarter through with the book. Not sure if I’d still continue or just abandon it. Tsk.

I am enjoying Purple Hibiscus so far and I hope to enjoy it to the end. It’s my second read from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

All the Bad Apples is pretty intriguing. I really hope it keeps me intrigued to continue reading.

Up Next

My next reads are all Christmas-y. I really hope to read these three this month since I don’t really read Christmas-themed books.
