A Night in the Lonesome October

Nel's Perspective: Have you ever been in a situation in which you really liked a book but a few minor issues are preventing it from being one of the perfect ones? Well, this is how I feel about A Night in the Lonesome October. Before I continue further, a few disclaimers: I don't want my … Continue reading A Night in the Lonesome October

The Corset by Laura Purcell - Bookcover

The Corset By Laura Purcell

Nel's Perspective: Vel made me happy this summer, not only by visiting me, but also by bringing books along with her. đź–¤ This was very fortunate, because our plan for the year included Dacre Stoker’s Dracul and we were unable to get the book on time to write a proper review. However, I think one … Continue reading The Corset By Laura Purcell

If They Come for Us Kindle Book Cover

IF THEY COME FOR US BY FATIMAH ASGHAR

Nel's Perspective: I haven’t had this much fun researching words, phrases and historic events I’ve only heard in passing in a long time. This is why I like learning languages in the first place - each language represents a different way of perceiving the world and the things surrounding us. And while analysing contemporary issues … Continue reading IF THEY COME FOR US BY FATIMAH ASGHAR

The ebook versions of The Tattooist of Auschwitz on two Kindles.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Vel's Perspective: Firstly, I'd like to mention a few things about the edition. I read the book on a Kindle, ebook published in 2018 by Zaffre, where barely 85% of the contents is the story of Lale, the Tattooist of Auschwitz. The rest of the book is filled up with notes from the author, Lale's … Continue reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Side View of the Book Cover of Catch 22

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

Nel's Perspective This time I don’t even know how to start my review... And I still have no idea whether I like the book or not. I hope I get to a more precise opinion by the end of this review. Joseph Heller’s Catch 22 is a very bizarre experience from start to finish. The … Continue reading Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

The Outsider by Stephen King on the Kindle

The Outsider by Stephen King

Vel's Perspective Stephen Kings is an extremely prolific writer, with nearly 60 novels published to date, and I doubt there are many places in the world where people haven’t heard of him or his stories. The settings for his novels vary widely from science fiction, to today, to a post-apocalyptic future. Overall, his writing explores … Continue reading The Outsider by Stephen King

Circe by Madeline Miller

CIRCE BY MADELINE MILLER

Nel's perspective I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Greek Mythology. On one hand, I’ve always been interested in stories about heroes, magical creatures, and adventures. On the other, most, if not all, of the characters in Greek mythology are all-mighty, none can be beaten, none can be bested. This irritated me. If all of … Continue reading CIRCE BY MADELINE MILLER

CHAMKORIA BY MILEN RUSKOV

Vel's perspective I received a long-awaited parcel from Nelly around 6 March, and along the treats she always sends me was Milen Ruskov’s bulky creation - Chamkoria. I started reading right away. Though many days I was unable to revisit the book due to personal engagements, I managed to finish the book right before the … Continue reading CHAMKORIA BY MILEN RUSKOV

The Spine of Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock

Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock

Nel’s Perspective: I braced myself for the second round of fantasy stories and it was a bit of a challenge. Robert Holdstock has a very unique way of story-telling, which was a bit difficult to follow at times. This was not because the language was unnecessarily heavy or convoluted, but because I usually read in … Continue reading Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock

A partial cover of the Bulgarian edition of Master and Margarita

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

Vel’s Perspective: Reading Russian literature is always a bizarre experience for me, even when I know something odd will be going on, I am still amazed at just how odd things become. After reading a collection of Gogol’s short stories I thought I was ready for anything, and of course I wasn’t. Now, after The … Continue reading The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
