Oh, this week…. So life decided to do this to me the past couple of days.
Everything’s good, just lost time, which is needed for a Readathon. I’m going to have to drop Reincarnation Blues off this week’s TBR. I’m working just to complete The Book Thief and Serena, I definitely should get one done, as long as life decides to behave…
Life, I’m watching you…
Now let’s catch up with some challenges!
Day Three Challenge: Book Spine Rainbow
“Take a selection of your favorite book spines to make a rainbow!”
I went with Murakami:
Day Four: If you like this, try that . . .
“Put your recommendations hat on, #boutofbooks-ers. For this challenge, pick a book, author, or trope (or whatever!) from your TBR and suggest similar books.”
Right now I’m in the middle of reading The Book Thief, which is set in WWII Germany. There’s a boat load of WWII books, and could easily be its own genre. Below are some recommendations for WWII books, some that I have read and love, and three that I want to read in the near future.
Maus I/II – Art Spiegelman
All the Light We Can See – Anthony Doerr
Slaughterhouse Five – Kurt Vonnegut
On My TBR:
The Diary of Anne Frank
In the Garden of Beasts – Erik Larson
The Nightingale – Kristin Hannah
Day Five: Leave a book review
“Did you know? Book reviews help other readers discover new books. For today’s challenge, we encourage you to write a review of a book you’ve read during the readathon (or recently) and publish it where other readers make their purchasing decisions (e.g., Amazon, Goodreads, etc.).”
I was already planning on doing this with the books I completed this week. So you’ll just have to wait till Monday!
