MOST RECENT

Currently reading ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ by Celeste Ng. I’m only about 100 pages in at the moment. As it’s a character driven book I’m finding it a little bit hard to get into, it’s definitely not a fast paced read for me which after a reading slump isn’t very good! I’m still enjoying the character development tho 🤙🏻What are your thoughts on Little Fires Everywhere?

What? Is this normal posting resuming?? I guess it is, because I am back home for the summer!! At last I am reunited with my beloved bookshelf and actually have time to reeeeaaaddddd!!! 🌻🌻

I love stories like this...stories that reveal how different a person’s inner and outer life can be; that gap between what we think we know and what the other person is actually experiencing. This was really good storytelling! #readgoodbooks #celesteng #everythinginevertoldyou

I’ll give this one 3,5⭐️ (well 4 on Goodreads). “Little Fire Everywhere” was easy to read, but at first I didn’t particularly connect with the characters and the storyline wasn’t at all what I had expected. Then again, I picked it up because of the hype (and the cover) and didn’t give the plot a second thought. Then, and perhaps worst of all, the fire imagery that runs throughout started getting on my nerves. At first I was like, oh yes, this is nice, I get it. But by the second time it showed up I was like: “fine, I get it, this is important, this a literary thing you came up with, but it’s too obvious, too forced, putting the spotlight on smaller elements and screaming “here! look! this is important”. I know it’s important, and if I don’t notice it, I quite enjoy being surprised, so stop making it this obvious!”
Thankfully, by the second third of the book, as Mia’s backstory (finally) gets revealed, I got really into the story and hardly let the book go, and enjoyed reading the raining hundred pages or so very much.
So quite mixed feelings. Good food for thought, well crafted plot, and a writing style that occasionally annoyed me (only during the fire metaphors). All in all, I don’t regret having picked this up, but I have mixed feeling and that’s just the way it is 🤷🏼‍♀️🔥

My first blog post is here! Make yourself a nice cup of tea, and come on over and have a read! #thecheerfulmum #bookreview #celesteng #littlefireseverywhere #tea #firstblogpost

I know I'm late to the game on this one but.. wow. I loved it! I'm a sucker for a solid opening line and I'm adding this to my list of favorites: "Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down."
.
In idyllic Shaker Heights Ohio in the 1990s, privilege abounds. Mia Warren and her daughter Pearl enter the bubble and rent a house from the Richardsons and the two families lives quickly intertwine. At the center of the story there is an adoption that causes the community members to choose sides and go against each other, but the book really is about much more than that. It's not a mystery or thriller- it's a story about family and fitting in, and realizing that life might not be able to be neatly categorized as some might like. I LOVED Ng's writing and plan to get her debut novel, Everything I Never Told You, right away. I loved the omniscient narration. I am feeling like there is more of this story to tell- I wonder how they'll portray it on screen! The rights to this story were bought by Rewce Witherspoon and will involve Kerry Washington. Can't wait!

My two favorite things about today: (1) a cloudy rainy sky which means no pressure to go out and frolic in the sun, bec even tho i love it, it hates me 😡 and (2) finishing a book, in this case LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE by @pronounced_ing. This book is so masterfully written and layered and I agree with all the (well-deserved) hype. What are you reading this long weekend? Did you read Little Fires Everywhere?? Off to pick my next book... 🤗📚 #bookstagram #amreading #littlefireseverywhere #celesteng #botm #bookofthemonth

"..She had felt, finally,......, as if she suddenly saw that the solid walls penning her in were actually bars, with spaces between them wide enough to slip through..." I was enthralled by this book- read until I fell asleep and started again as soon as I woke up! Its been on every book club list in the world practically at this stage and there's a good reason... #littlefireseverywhere #celesteng #goodreadschallenge2018 #booksofinstagram @reesesbookclubxhellosunshine #sinead&;rick'smustreads #readuntilyoufallasleep

How do you like to start your Sunday? This morning was especially relaxing as I finished, quite possibly, my *favorite* read for 2018. Little Fires Everywhere is written with such character intimacy you feel like your neighborhood is Shaker Heights. It's a quick, easy-to-read, can't-put-it-down novel that's perfect for summer. Let me know what you think! .

Recent acquisitions.

An Asian American hardcover #stacksaturday for the month of May.

Indeed I am a day late, but this week has been a little crazy with hosting a birthday and family. It's hard to believe May is almost over. Before I know it, June will arrive. I guess it's time to start looking at summer readathons and beach reads.
I hope everyone is having a safe and happy weekend with lots of reading! And have a happy Memorial Day if you are in the US!

Hallo ihr Lieben, ich habe mich noch nicht ganz mit dem Buch angefreundet, aber vielleicht bessert es sich ja noch. Heute geht es nochmal aufs Volksfest mit meinen Eltern. Was verbringt ihr den heutigen Tag? Genießt die Sonne! 💛

Sundaze™️: Dirty hair, no makeup, a good book and a cuppa tea, sounds about right! ☕️ I swear it was Friday like 9 minutes ago! Hope everyone had a good weekend × #sundaze #celesteng #weekendvibes

This book is getting so much hype! I enjoyed it, but it wasn't amazing and I'm not going to lie, the ending was a bit if a let down for me. Very well written though!
