I thought I would make a topic in which we could collect interesting reads in order to inspire people to read more books and try to come back to the nice and cozy feeling of curling up with a good book on the sofa and trying to escape our accelerated and technology based lifestyle.
Books in every language are welcome, maybe you can make a short description of what the book is about and whether you liked it or not?
Let me start with the following one.
I bought a book that has been widely recommended to me by friends. This weekend my husband will have surgery and I will have plenty of time in waiting rooms and I am anxious to get started with it.
It is called Where the Crawdads sing and is the first novel of American author Delia Owen.
It is about a girl who was abandoned in a marsh by her family and her coping with growing up and dealing with the outside/modern world.
It also has a criminal aspect to it since a murder happens which needs to be resolved.
This book has been on the New York Bestseller list for 150 weeks in a row and now it was made into a movie as well which was produced by Reese Witherspoon and is to be released in July of this year.
As soon as I finish reading it, I will give you an update on my opinion. Have any of you already read this book?
I would love to see more recommendations coming in and can not wait to find out about your favourites!
Have a lovely weekend,
