Blogmas Day 19! 🎄

Hi everyone!

Last book related post of Blogmas. What I’m currently reading/will read. I borrowed this book above Alice au Pays Les Trop Vieilles from my library. I was mostly attracted to it because of the illustration on the cover. Yes, judge a book by its cover. It’s been very comical so far and it’s written in the style of a daily journal. It’s basically about the life of a 41 year old women navigating the ‘old’ title.

Next on my to read list is this, Fiesta: The Sun also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. I just want to see what the fuss is about with Hemingway. I had previously read The Old Man and The Sea, which I thought wasn’t anything overly special so thought that I would give another of his books a chance.

What are you currently reading now and what book do you want to read next? Let me know in the comments below!

Blogmas Day 15! 🎄

Hello everyone!

I thought this week I’d do a book week topic for blogmas this week. Now that I’ve finished uni, i feel like I can read without falling asleep now. I’ve spent a few years working at a bookstore as well so reading is one of my jams.

I think I first saw this book ‘The little coffee shop in Kabul’ by Deborah Rodriguez at an airport and made a mental note to see if my local library had it. Then I completely forgot so it has been a long time coming. Until now! I started December off with this book so I thought I would start off with it.
P.S. I judged this book by its cover.

The main story line revolves around an American lady who owns a coffee shop. In Kabul. I don’t know the technical term but it’s written in a way where each character has their own story line from beginning to end and their lives link up. Alittle like Love Actually. If you enjoyed The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, I would describe this book as similar to them theme-wise. I found it enjoyable and easy to read so would recommend!

Have you read The Little Coffee Shop in Kabul and what did you think? Let me know in the comments below!

Weapon of Mass Instruction

Weapon of Mass instruction

On the streets of Buenos Aires, an unsightly vehicle roams its streets. Created by Raul Lemesoff, this quasi military tank carries books which are free and offered to anyone after some words. What a great spin on all things associated with war.

Maybe if we did more reading and book swapping and less fighting, the world might be in a better place. Just a suggestion.
