It’s not 2017 anymore but I’m still going to try and finish this list. 18/30 on my #2017bookchallenge is a book written by or about someone who identifies as trans. This book is both, and it is equal parts heart-warming and heart-breaking. I read it in a day and a half and I’ve been thinking about it ever since I closed the cover 🖤 #readabook #booknerd #rightinthefeels

September wrap up 🎁📚
All The Light We Cannot See ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Finished off the month with All The Light We Cannot See which I was actually never planning on reading because some DICKHEAD did not put a spoiler alert on their review! So I read what happens 😒. My Mum told me it was still worth it to read so I picked it up worried that the whole time I would be reading And thinking I know what happens, I know what happens, I know what happens. But good old Madre, yet again was right. I only did that like twice! And was still very much worth the read.
I love pretty much anything WW2 so I couldn't go too far wrong.
So easy to read with very short chapters that are so carefully constructed you're hooked early on.
Loved the two main characters - A young blind girl living in occupied France and a German orphan boy who attends a nazi military academy.
Nice to see some empathy shown for some of the Germans. We should feel sorry for what some of those poor bastards went through too. Anyway well done great read. I found the end a liiiiiiiiiiitle bit annoying though where I was like wait what happened then? Don't give me any of this hidden messages what the book really represents crap. Give it to me straight dammit I don't want to be left with questions! Anyway.

The Potato Factory - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Crying Tree ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Written by a journalist after she covered the first execution in Oregon USA in 30 years.
A story of a mothers' loss, her subsequent hatred and the human capacity to forgive in the most difficult circumstances. Real good.
Best month I've had in ages I reckon! Yay.

I'm raving about this dam book. And Bryce Courtenay who would have thought! An author I know so well, without having read any of his books. Other than a pathetic attempt to read The Power of one when I was like 11. The subject matter obviously too advanced for my prepubescent mind (I remember thinking pisskop? What's a pisskop?)
Bryce Courtenay has always been a staple on my Mum's bookshelf, and for years she's hounded me to read her favourite book The Potato Factory. My response always being why the hell would I want to read a book about potatoes??
But rest assured people, there is no mention of potatoes at all until at least the 500th page!

The Potato Factory is brilliant no question. The descriptions of 19th century London, then on convict ships bound for Australia, then of the landscapes of colonial Tasmania has you almost tasting what you're reading.
So brutal and devastating it had me holding my breath in parts then cracking up in others. It truly is a masterpiece. Bryce is the man! Can't wait to get my hands on book two! 👏🏼✊🏽📖📚

17/30 is a book of short stories. I used to sit in the back of my elementary school library and read all of these! They don’t take me 2 minutes anymore #2017bookchallenge #readabook #booknerd #macyelementary

16/30 I started this reading challenge in February so technically I’ve still got time for my #2017bookchallenge this is my Non-Fiction book! It’s an episode by episode breakdown of the shows themes and I’ve read it twice. I have every intention of finishing all the books on my challenge even if it takes me longer than 12 months because it’s what Buffy would do (well maybe not so much if the reading...but the perseverance for sure!) #readabook #booknerd #btvs #whatwouldbuffydo #scoobygang ps. This filter is called Willow 🖤
A fine marzo, terminato il primo round della #2017bookchallenge, ho creato un collage con le copertine dei libri bianchi e neri letti dai partecipanti. È venuto carino ed in mente mi si è costruita l'idea di farlo per ogni round, ognuno dedicato ad un colore diverso. Oggi eccoci qui, a Challenge finita, soddisfatte di come è andata, con un collage di tantissime copertine divise per colore. Grazie a chi ha partecipato, grazie a chi ha letto con noi. Vi aspettiamo per la #2018IkigaiBookChallenge (https://ikigai.altervista.org/2018-ikigai-book-challenge/)💕💕

12,13/52
Ostatnie dwie przeczytane w 2017. „Dracula” była fajna, ale to stary utwór i „sztywnym” angielskim napisany. Cieszę się, że wytrwałam do końca. „W stronę Swanna” to nudna książka, ciężko mi się ją czytało. To nie jest jakieś lekkie romansidło, opisy są bardzo żywe, rozbudowane, masa przemyśleń, uczuć, tak jak każdy z nas ma mniej lub więcej na codzień. Zero akcji, tylko opis życia wewnętrznego małego chłopca, głównego bohatera oraz Swanna, dorosłego mężczyzny, sąsiada dziadka chłopca, narracja przeważnie pierwszo- i drugoosobowa,pewnie właśnie dlatego wydała mi się taka nudna, ale napisana pięknym językiem, z francuskiego przetłumaczył Boy Żeleński T. #52booksin2017 #52książkiw2017 #52bookchallengepl #52booksin52weeks #mybooksof2017 #readingchallenge #literatura #2017bookchallenge #czytambolubię #polacyczytają #dracula #bramstoker #marcelproust
