this is actually supposed to be another Book Wrap-up, finally, I am sorry I haven’t done one last month, but I hadn’t red anything and I wasn’t in the mood to make a favorites neither, but back I am in the game. It has just been 1 books this time, but you know, holidays are here and I’m gonna have a full month of things to do, and I’m packing some favorites in here too.
Extremely Loud and incredibly close by Jonathan Safran Foer
Yeah, one book of my Wishlist #3 done!
Description: “In a vase in a closet, a couple of years after his father died in 9/11, nine-year-old Oskar discovers a key . . .The key belonged to his father, he’s sure of that. But which of New York’s 162 million locks does it open?So begins a quest that takes Oskar – inventor, letter-writer and amateur detective – across New York’s five boroughs and into the jumbled lives of friends, relatives and complete strangers. He gets heavy boots, he gives himself little bruises and he inches ever nearer to the heart of a family mystery that stretches back fifty years. But will it take him any closer to, or even further from, his lost father?”
This book is a true little patch of emotions, that will bring everyone through a phase of thinking, either when reading it or when having finished it. This boy is so well written, the stories, thoughts and advent ours are so scurril, still so haunting. I loved the writing style of the author, the changes between time and persons are quite irritating at first, but to me all made sense while going further into the plot. It is a bit like a maze/adventure for the boy and so you feel when reading from the past and the present. Not only does this book contain multiple facts I did not know but loved to read about, but it did also entertain with pictures forming in your head of beautiful packed apartments and sights in New York. Coming to my last point, it’s New York babe, it’s worth it! Go n’ read.
London, if you can’t tell, hell. :))
Holidays, another point checked off my Wishlist #3, haha.
I have been really thinking about the vegan, vegetarian hype and I am not sure if I think about it all, than how I thought about it a month ago, because I am not feeling very good. Yup I’ve said it and yup, I know animals are dying (I am not a person who closes they eyes again) but I’ve talked to really nice people who told me how much milk the animals they have give and for how long. I am loving vegan food, but i am not feeling good anymore either, so yeah. Thinking again. You always have to find your way, for now I am staying vegan, but I am not sure I can make it that strictly. I actually want fall, yup that is weird. I have love painting, doodling this month and I will be happy to do all that all summer now.
