Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That’s how you’ll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. You’ll end up looking at the sky.”

Midwinterblood


✨In 2073 on the remote and secretive island of Blessed, where rumor has it that, no one ages and no children are born, a ritual sacrifice takes place. 
It echoes a moment ten centuries before, when in the dark of the moon, a king was slain, tragically taken ,  torn away from his queen. Their souls searching to be reunited, and as mother and son, artist and child, forbidden lovers, victims of a vampire, they come close to finding what they’ve lost. 

But can love last forever? ✨

Readers’ Problems

As readers we all have our own reading habits. Some are mobile readers, which means they move a lot and change many positions while reading. others are immobile or still readers. However giving into reading passion can also cause problems. But do we stop reading ? NOO

In this post I will be talking about my main three reading problems.

Weaken eyesight 

tired-funny-girl-student-glasses-reading-books-crazy-library-39352840

The more you spend time reading in the dark the more you get eyestrain and weak eyesight. EXPERIENCED!

 

Hunched Posture

things-women-do-13

Yeah, But i don’t really get how to sit straight. It makes me annoyed.

 

Reading Slumps

This is when i feel guilty, angry and sad. I dread reading slumps because it makes me feel like I almost betray my beloved book. However I think we should not force ourselves. The mood for it will come eventually.

Few tips:

Bookstagram – watching those lovely photos and comments and posts makes me really hungry for a good read

Scented candle – just make the mood for it

Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert 

“People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other’s personalities. Who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that’s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner’s faults honestly and say, ‘I can work around that. I can make something out of it.’? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it’s always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you.”

 

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak


✨No Spoilers✨

This book leaves me satisfied, confused,sad ,happy .. basically an emotional mess.

The setting of The Book Thief is Nazi Germany. The story is narrated by Death. The main character a girl named Liesel Meminger who lives with her foster parents.

Positive Comments

What I like most about the book is Zusak’s characterisation. It is so diverse  it makes you ponder on each character and their role on the book. Death, Liesel, The foster mother Rose, the foster father Hans, and even the trivial characters like the two guards at the train station, the gravediggers  contribute immensely to the plot.

The incorporation of German sentences here and there in the book is so effective it gives this sense of authenticity, that we are actually in Germany while reading.

The book is witty yet heart-touching.

The use if symbolism is beautiful.

A real quick read.

Negative Comments

However the truth should be told. I did not feel connected with the protagonist or the narrator or the book. No doubt the characters are beautifully crafted but still there’s something missing.  I did not get that spark once I finish the book. I really wish I had.

Reasons being some of the literary techniques didn’t work well with me. For example the Death narrator says about a dark chocolate coloured sky . I mean why? I find some of these references absurd.

Do I Reccomend? 

The answer is Yes.

Why?

This book like I said earlier can be absurd at one point but it’s a beautiful read. It is definitely not your everyday novel. It has a unique writing style.  So why not try something new right.

So

Go ahead with this uniquely enchanting book!

Happy reading 💛
