The History of Love by Nicole Krauss – Book Thoughts

“One thing that struck me most about life, is the capacity for change. One day you’re a person, and the next day they tell you you’re a dog. At first it is hard to bear, but after a while you learn not to look at it as a loss. There’s even a moment when itContinue reading “The History of Love by Nicole Krauss – Book Thoughts”

Two unforgettable fictional heroines – Circe and Isabel Dalhousie – Book Thoughts

I had the pleasure of reading two great books in the last weeks. Books that are completely based on the female protagonist, and these women make you think, a lot.

The Runaways & The Kiss Quotient – Book Thoughts

I really need a good book to get me out of the two unsatisfying reads that I read last.

If I say I didn’t like a particular book, IContinue reading “The Runaways & The Kiss Quotient – Book Thoughts”

Can you believe it – this is probably the first book that I’ve read, which has won a Pulitzer Prize! And, lo and behold, it was readable and absolutely lovable!

Looking for Alaska by John Green – Book Review

I think the problem with reading a John Green book is that if you started with the exceptionally heart breaking but amazing book of his – The Fault in our Stars, then every other book that you read, although good in their own way, kind of falls short in comparison. I had read Paper TownsContinue reading “Looking for Alaska by John Green – Book Review”
