A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian

(viewed 1166 times)
Book Two.

I got hold of this book through Book Crossing. I was drawn to it because of the quirky art and seemingly-random title. And… it was pretty funny. Nikolai is an 84-year-old widow who marries Valentina to help her acquire a British visa, and he gets much more than he bargained for. Nikolai is a hilarious character and was pretty much solely responsible for the moments i laughed out loud.

The Book Thief

2013: Book One.

The amount of times this book ripped my heart out, stomped on it a little and then gently picked it up and carefully placed it back into my chest is unbelievable. Yes, i cried. (And if you don’t cry at books filled with words, characters and situations that are constructed to toy with your emotions, then please don’t read this book—it will be wasted on you.) I cried, but i also smiled and laughed and gasped and winced. And it was all worth it.

I am rather in love with this idea. Stick googly eyes on any- and everything to make faces out of them. Food is one of my own favourites, apparently. And teaming them with moustache paper clips, obviously.

The 50 books i read in 2012. They look quite impressive in one tall pile.

I set my 2013 goal as 25 books, with an aim to read some longer books. I'm undecided as to whether i'll continue to post them here or not...

Crome Yellow

Book Fifty.

My last book of 2012. It was hilarious, with some brilliant end-of-chapter punch lines, amusing descriptions and bizarre stories. It was also quite hard to read at times and had a habit of making me very sleepy...

The Time Machine

Book Forty Nine.

I bought this on a whim from a charity shop. It was highly enjoyable. I laughed, i was sad, i was anxious. And it's short enough to enjoy in a day, apparently.

Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters

(viewed 1211 times)
Book Forty Eight.

I had no idea what this was about when i bought it, but i loved The Catcher in the Rye, so i wasn't going to turn down a J.D. Salinger for 49p. It's two stories: Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: an Introduction. The first, i loved. In all the ways i loved Catcher. The second... was good, and interesting in some ways, but very, as the author admits, very long winded. I would get physically tired after any more than 10 pages, and although i enjoyed it, it was a huge struggle.
