Olympic Book Tag

Olympics are over, but I was tagged in the Olympic Book Tag by Lois @ My Midnight Musing and I decided that I’ll do it anyway. It’s all about books anyway, not Olympic Games. This tag was created by Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight, and all graphics are from her.

It’s a Polish book, and it’s not translated into English (yet, hopefully, it will be). I love the story, it’s beautifully sad, the writing is phenomenal. So I really wanted to share my love for this book with you guys, even though most of you cannot read it just yet.

I don’t recall any road trip books that I read, so I don’t have any favorite. But I’ll go ahead and put a new addition to my bookshelf, a book that you might have seen in my TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books set in Iceland post. It is a story about a young woman that sets off on a road trip across Iceland with her best friend’s four-year-old deaf-mute son as a passenger.

I don’t like love triangles, and I didn’t read many books with them that I enjoyed. But The Hunger Games is an exception, I love the story and it has a love triangle (that ends up just like I wished for).

I really don’t know what to make out of this book. It is a multi-generation tale of a family that is, let say, obsessed with Time. Story spans hounded years of history, takes place in Czechoslovakia, Austria and United States and mentions historic events and science inventions, there is a bit about Holocaust, and there is something about Einstein and other scientists, relativity theory, there is event something about Gustav Klimt and his painting “The Kiss”. So there is a lot going on in the story. And I just didn’t fully get it.

Set in the summer in late 1960s, in California. And is there ever not summer in California? It just seems like you can enjoy endless summer there. Check out my review of The Girls here.

Currently reading this one. It is a slow paced, and that’s why I’m having troubles reading it. But the writing is so, so pretty, and I like the characters. I’m liking it, but I’m having troubles focusing on reading it anyway.

As you can conclude from the cover, there is a talk about squirrels in this book.The main character likes to talk with them.

Yeah, it wasn’t easy for me to finish it. I didn’t like the story that much and it is a really long book.

As it says on the cover, a tale of an unexpected and unlikely friendship, and this friendship is truly great.
