I wasn’t expecting a YA to be so gripping and dark. “13 MINUTES” went beyond all my expectations. I was quite impressed when tonight I finished it because I wasn’t expecting a such addictive and unputdownable book. If I had to describe it I would say that it is a mix of Mean Girls and Gone Girl.
Not even 10 minutes have passed since I read the last page of "Burial Rites" by Hannah Kent, published by Picador here in Australia, and I am already here to put on words my feelings.This book is wonderful! Hannah Kent is a young Australian writer and "Burial Rites" is her debut novel who earned the win of numerous awards.The book told about the story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, that is unfortunately based on real events.Her has been the last execution in Iceland along with that of Fridrik Sigurdsson, both charged with the murder of Natan Ketilsoon and Petur Jonsson in 1829.The book is enriched in fact, at the beginning of each chapter , with official records, letters and legal transcriptions.The Icelandic Influeces a lot the reading, with names and places that have been left in the original language and which I assume to be quite difficult to pronounce correctly.I have also listened to the audiobook where the names are being read with the correct pronunciation and that help to make the setting more realistic and reading more smoothly.
I needed two days to collect my feelings and thoughts about my last reading: The Gracekeeper written by Kirsty Logan, published by Harvill Secker in 2015. I don't even know where to start. This book was a blast. Just after a few pages Logan style caught me and I was lost in her waterword, I smell the salt in the wind and heard the swush of waves on the boats. This book is one of those kind of books that I do not simply like or love, is all of this thing and even more. Kirsty Logan manage to piant a gourgeous and colorful setting.
I read mostly fantasy, to take refuge in a beautiful world, because of bad things in the real world there are already enough. I've never read anything written by Orwell. I have always said it was too tragic and for the very reason that I have just explained, I always chose other books. But then my partner bought 1984 and I decided that it was finally the time to read it .
Greetings! Today I want to talk about one of the best books of 2015 and one of my all time favorite. "The Ice Twins" by S.K.Tremayne published by Harper Collins . Intrigued by the hype that was around this novel I decided to read the book . The day after, at dawn , I was still awake, curled up in my bed (and totally terrified) . The Ice twins is a publishing event, debut novel of the english writer, and mother of two twin girls, S.K.Tremayne.
