Here’s my favorite book of June. Here’s one of my favorite books of all times. Thank you, Tara Westover, for writing Educated, for bringing this book into the world.
I just have to say that Ali Smith is a genius. The literary quality hasn’t been compromised in any way. It must be tough, very tough. But she just manages it because she is Ali Smith, a magician of some sorts!
What a wonderful, sensitive and poignant short book! I am absolutely in love with Lie With Me by Philippe Besson. I don’t usually like to make comparisons between books. But, when I say that this book reminded me of Call Me By Your Name, I mean it in the best way possible.
I really wanted to love Can You Tolerate This? by Ashleigh Young. I mean, it was perfect for me! It’s an essay collection about youth, ambition, anxiety, the challenges of personal transformation and disappointment! It sounds right up my alley, right? Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to connect to Young’s universe.
London is definitely one of my favorite cities in the world. It's more than a vibrant, multicultural and electrifying city to me. It's the city where I have lived and learnt so much. It's a city that made me grow a lot, that led me to very special people. This isn't a traditional guide that includes the top monuments. You can find that everywhere. This is what I see and what I love and I will update it every time I go back!
Everything Here Is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee, that came out last year, is a novel that essentially deals with mental illness.
Just finished my first book of June! I've never read anything like Demi-Gods by Eliza Robertson before. While being a very unique and experimental novel, Demi-Gods, that takes place in the fifties/sixties, has a vibe that took me back to The Virgin Suicides and Call Me By Your Name.
Here’s my May wrap-up and let me just say that I am really proud of this stack. ♥️ Ten books is a surprising number especially because I moved back to Portugal this month and was busy! This was possible because most of these books were great and super engrossing!
Hi! I’m a flight attendant who travels all around the world but somehow always ends up at a bookstore. I’ve been an avid reader since I was a kid and lately I’ve been really enjoying blending my love of travel and reading on my Instagram account. I’m 28 and I have a husband and two cats. I never wanted cats but 9 years ago I ended up with Zeke and somehow I’ve turned into a crazy cat lady! So my page is a reflection of my three loves: books, travel, and cats.
Evening in Paradise is a posthumous collection of 22 stories that can be described as raw. They’re funny at times, but they’re always dark. From what I’ve read about Berlin’s life, I gather that many of these stories have an autobiographical dimension.
