Written in 1940/1941 in China and never finished as the author died. Finished by her long time translator - so really a book with two authors. Following the antics, and cowardly behaviour of its reluctant hero Ma Bo’le as he runs away from the approach of Japanese forces in 1930s China. It’s both a satire on the western- Chinese collision of the time, with Ma Bo’le’s family being Christian, and venerating western traditions and consumer items , and a fascinating look at China during the war. #mabolessecondlife #xiaohong #howardgoldblatt #openletterbooks #pgcbooks #readtheworld #lunenburgboundbooks #independentbookstore #instabook #bookworm #bookstagram #bibliophile #2018books #summerreading

On a Wells & Wong binge!

Hello #bookstagram

I am so happy about the reactions to my "5 reasons why I love Jane Austen"
I want to thank you all for your comments and interesting interactions. .
It's raining and the air is so fresh outside. I love this weather and it always feels like I can read better when it's raining. I have picked back "Deathly Hollows" and I just can't remember why I've put it down already. I read about 200 pages in one sitting and I was having all sorts of feelings about it. I can't wait to finish it and reread the whole #HarryPotter seried. .

“Someone always pays. Bullet don’t have nobody’s name on it, that’s what people say. I think the same is true for vengeance. Maybe even for love. It’s out there, random and deadly, like a tornado.”
Book: An American Marriage
Author: Tayari Jones
Genre: Fiction
Summary: A young African American newlywed couple is torn apart when the husband is sent to prison for 12 years. 5 years into his sentence he is released hoping to be able to pick his life up were it left off, but life doesn’t stand still.
What I liked: The characters and their relationships were complex, but not unbelievable. This books attempts to get to the soul of what a marriage is and what marriage means. The writing itself was beautiful and mesmerizing. No wonder it’s an Oprah Book Club selection. It also manages to discuss race, the justice system, and the complexities of family.
What I didn’t like: Sometimes the characters are frustrating, but that’s realistic as well. Can’t really find anything else to complain about with this one.
You might like this book if: You like books that reflect on real life, but are fiction. You like stories about human nature and relationships.

James Hadley Chase "Ehtiyatlı qatil" 🔪
Səhifə sayı:231 📖
4.5/5🌟
James Hadley Chase zamanının ən məşhur detektiv yazarlarından biridir. Bir çox kitabına film çəkilmişdir. Yazıçıdan oxuduğum ilk əsər oldu. Qanun nəşriyyatının 2 manatlıq kitab endirimindən əldə etmişdim.Düzünü desəm belə maraqlı olacağını gözləmirdim😁 Yazıçının yazı tərzini bir az Aqatanın yazı tərzinə bənzətdim. Kitab çox maraqlıdır,harda görsəniz düşünmədən alın.🌸 Necə başladı necə bitdi bilmədim. Sonu gözlənilməz oldu.

🎶Tell me lies, Tell me lies, Tell me sweet Little Lies 🎶
Ahh... This book was an addictive read. Most of us ladies have been there or at least have a friend who has fallen victim to it...Toxic relationships that never end well. •Girl meets boy. Boy has a girlfriend. Boy doesn’t care and says all the sweet things that the girl wants to hear. All lies. Really Good Reads review:😍

Subversive stories set in Indonesia and inspired by horror, myth and fairytales. For #WomenInTranslation month: 🍎 Apple and Knife by #IntanParamaditha. #WITMonth [📷: @glaiza_echo]

The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho is a book not unlike most of his other works- vague. It talks of The Tradition and magic and magii and similar things which all Coelho readers know of. As with his other stories, Pilgrimage too focusses on the 'road' more than the destination, which is fine with me, but, not much about this particular road impresses me. This is the Road to Santiago, a road taken by certain pilgrims from many centuries and the one Coelho has take in order to get back his 'sword' that will initiate him as a Magus.
I did not like the book.

I’ve been reading a lot this summer but I’ve forgotten to post about them. Oops! Anyways, one of my favorite reads this summer has been How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. Due to a rare condition, Tom Hazard has been alive for centuries, and he must decide whether to remain stick in the past or start living in the present. It is the perfect mix of mystery, romance, loss and hope through the ages. 4.5 stars #amberkatrinareads #goodreads #2018books #howtostoptime #summerreads #matthaig

My copy of The Secret to Southern Charm was provided by the publisher via @netgalley Thanks!

This is the second book in the Peachtree Bluff series. A problem I had in the first book of the series, Slightly South of Simple, was the focus on appearances and weight. Though this book didn’t have nearly as much it was still there. I am not from the south. I do not live anywhere near the south. So I am wondering if this focus on appearances, on not having the way you look on the outside match what may really be going on, is part of the whole “southern charm” thing?
