Books lately - July&August 2016

More about books. Cause I like a good one.

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - a book about Hadley Richardson and Ernest Hemisgway. Hadley was Ernest's first wife and the book focuses on mostly on Hadley.It is a very lovely book, althought the end is sad, and through from the beginning you know whats coming, but still. It is written very well, you understand the main character and want them to overcome everything, just like in every lovestory.

All the Light We Can not see by Anthony Doerr - I don't think there are thing that were not already said about this one. I can assure you it is a great book.I the beginning you need to focus a little because its all written as a lot of short stories, with time jumps, and character jumps. But when you get used to it, it all good.

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai & Christina Lamb (audible) - I thought about reading this book for a long time and had it in audible forever, but could not bring myself to it. This book is all about girls getting an education and the Taliban rule over Pakistan, I did enjoy the book, but the polical side of it was a frustrating for me.

Looking for Alaska by John Green (audible) - a very 'real' book to me, the characters felt real, their life in boarding school and their thought on life and consequences of their actions.

The Vacationers by Emma Straub - I remember this book was everywhere few years ago, but to me I did not understand the hype. It is a very 'slow' book, but maybe it was meant to be like this. The main thing I liked about it is the end, that felt possible and realistic.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling - I think I started to like Mindy after listening to Why Not Me? and her first book is no exception, its fun and easy going and puts a smile on my face while I listen. So I will recommend to listen to the book, cause I'd really enjoyed it.

Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard - a shortish priquel to the Red Queen,a story about Queen Coriane and her struggles in court. 

The Assistants by Camille Perri - I thought this book would be totally different than it is, unexpected much. Did not like the plot, the end or the characters. 

Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven't Told You by Kunal Nayyar (audible) - ooh I love this, its funny and somehow fresh and very entertaining. 

Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie - I'm still reading it. It is a long book with a lot of details about the last Russian Tsar and his wife Alexandra, their relationship, WWI and revolution.
