ManBooker

Both finished yesterday...the delicious #luxemburgerli maccaroons from Zurich (with substantial help from my kids) I loved passages of #thegodofsmallthings describing athmosphere and emotions along with playing with the words, but there were passages for which I wandered why they were a part of this book #arundhatiroy #book #bookish #bookstagram #instabooks #novel #manbooker #bookerprize #goodread #bog #bogsnak #desmåtingsgud #godbog #knjiga #dobraknjiga #bogmajhnihstvari #sprungli #zurich #spruengli

Unfortunately, I won’t have time to review this book on YouTube, but Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders was an amazing book. This exploration of grief and death was poignant, hilarious, and painful. I loved this book for its originality. The form of the book is that of a Greek Chorus. The form is admittedly disorienting at first, but eventually grows very contributory to the book’s messages. This reminds me of Hamilton (the musical) in the way it humanizes an American figure. This is one of the best books from this century that I’ve read, and George Saunders is a force to be reckoned with. Sorry for such a short review, but I’m a bit busy today. Be ready for my upcoming review of Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade on YouTube. #georgesaunders #lincoln #abelincoln #oakhillcemetery #willielincoln #lincolninthebardo #manbooker #manbookerprize #bardo #saunders #book #books #literary #bookreview #literaryreview

Swimming home by Deborah levy is a surreal melodrama set on two families holiday for a week in a villa on the Cote D’Azur. Their trip is derailed by a young woman found swimming naked in their pool the day after they arrive - and with there being nowhere for her to stay, she’s invited to take up residence with them in the home. But why is she there? And is she really a stranger to those staying in the house this week? This book has frequent moments of unnerving anti social events, odd human behaviour and vague motives. All quite unsettling stuff - one to sit with. But certainly anyone who has recently enjoyed Hot Milk by Levy will also enjoy this. But for now I think I prefer her more contemporary novel. #mylifeinbooks #bookreview #bookstagram #book #cushion #velvet #bedspread #bedframe #copper #swimminghome #deborahlevy #hotmilk #manbookerprize #manbooker #manbookershortlist #manbookerprizeshortlist #&otherstories

“I began to see a world that suited me in a different way. I came to prefer the inside to the outside, the armchair, the blankets and cushions, the tea and the teacakes, the curtains and the polished brass, and Vivien’s books, and the comfort of it all. And while I sat and read and drank tea, Cathy walked or ran through the fields and woods and, in her own way, she read the world too.” - Fiona Mozley, Elmet. The announcement of the new Man Booker Prize longlist is just a week away! I've been growing more and more restless and impatient to find out which books have made it this year, so this seemed like a good time to pick up some of last year's books that were still on my tbr shelf. Mozley's debut novel took everyone by surprise last year but it was on the list for a good reason; I read Elmet the other week and loved it. Such a beautifully written, dark and atmospheric story, it was the perfect antidote to the unbearable summer heatwave we're having right now. Are you looking forward to the longlist announcement? Which books would you like to see on the list?

“Scars are like years he said : one follows the other and it’s all of them together that makes a person who they are.” . Andreas Egger, has no clear memory of his mother and is raised by a harsh distant relative, living out most of his life in a small village located in an Austrian valley in the mountains. Set in the 1930s, this is a story of one man’s life, from his childhood to his younger years, middle age to old age, all stages covered with great depth. This novella packs the true meaning of life, the ups and downs, loneliness, grief, love, loss and death; in just 150 pages and so beautifully! Heartfelt, simple and atmospheric. I highly recommend this one and give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.25/5 Also, thanks to @booksteaandmore .. from where i picked up the recommendation❤️ I’m definitely picking up The Tobacconist as well😊 QOTD : Do you often compare/ find similarities between two author’s writing styles while reading a book? I loved how descriptive this one was and it kinda reminded me about one of my favourite author Steinbeck. Robert Seethaler’s writing is one of it’s kind but the beautiful descriptions of the Austrian valley and village reminded me about Steinbeck’s dedication to the landscapes.

Spotted this in Vibes & Scribes second hand shop and HAD to get it. It's one of my favourite movies and it recently won the Golden Man Booker Prize AND it was only €5! Shur, ya couldn't leave it there! Anyway, well done to The English Patient for winning the Golden Man Booker Prize. There's a very interesting article about the win in The Guardian I recommend reading :) I know links don't work in Instagram posts but here's a short one https://buff.ly/2Nz56kO . . . #bookstagram #manbooker #goldenmanbooker #bookphotography #bookish #books #vintagefeels #vintagephotography #vintagebooks #igreads #igbooks #instabooks #bibliophile #literature #reading #booknerd #bookaddict

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4 Stars for this modern adaptation of Antigone, a play written by the Greek playwright Sophocles. Though you dont have to know the play to appreciate the book, I did enjoy reading the Wikipedia synopsis of the play after I finished the book and clearly saw the parallels. I think the author did a great job of giving such a contemporary and relatable twist to that ancient storyline. Coincidentally, I also started listening to a podcast called Caliphate while reading this book, which follows a journalist's quest to understand ISIS, and that really added to the experience of reading this book. It was long listed for the ManBooker in 2017 and has won the Women's Prize for Fiction in 2018 - so the writing style is a bit more "literary", but very readable nonetheless. #HomeFire #KamilaShamsie #antigone #modernadaptations #modernretelling #contemporaryfiction #literaryfiction #fiction #book29of2018 #unitedbookstagram #unreadshelfproject2018 #isis #manbooker #Caliphatepodcast #booksofinstagram #bookworm #books #booklover #bookreview

Sunday set up, with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on in the background and a joint of beef from the farm shop roasting in the oven. Sunday dreams are made❤. We also have a cheese board for later. Literally best Sunday ever. I'm reading Patrick McCabe's Butcher Boy at the moment. It's taking some concentration because it's written from the perspective of a young boy so the sentences can be long and blend together to give it the pace of a child recalling a story. There are also no speech marks or 'he said' 'she said' so I have to try and concentrate on who's speaking otherwise I have NO IDEA😂. This has a name but I've completely forgot, 3 years of an English degree and 2 years of English A Levels really served me well😂. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #patrickmccabe #manbooker #harrypotter #sundays #knitting #crafts #bookblogger #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworm #bookstagram #igreads #instabooks #amreading #whatimreading
