I read The god of small things by Arundhati Roy for the first time this summer, and fell in love with everything, the story, the characters, the language..

I've heard that "I Was Told There'd Be Cake" good. I'm reading the "Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis... very intriguing!

Hmm... I'm usually a reader. But I'm sorry to say it hasn't been very much since I got the kids. Hope to start again :)

Well, I just read, "Devotion" by Dani Shapiro. Read it in two sittings. Just saying..

Mijn favoriete boek is Alles is verlicht van Jonathan Safran Foer, maar ook Extreenm luid en ongelofelijk dichtbij, ook van hem is fantastisch.
Verder alles van Dave Eggers, en Zweedse thrillers (als je van dat genre houd)
Fijne vakantie, groet..

ik heb nog eentje op mijn lijstje maar die is volgens mij nog niet uit in het nederlands.
Kain van José Saramago

Voor vakantie kan ik wel wat fijne dingetjes aanraden

"brieven van doornroosje" van Toon Tellegen
"de god van kleine dingen" van arundhati Roy,
eventueel iets van Amélie Nothomb, John Irving,...

Maybe something about Italo Calvino or Alessandro Baricco. Both italian writers. Both in a world full of imagination.
Perfect for summer days.

my summer-must for several years now: "Dandelion Wine" by ray bradbury ...

it reminds me of this special summer-feeling as a kid ...

Alles van Henning Mankell en Hakan Nesser, lekker ontspannen met Zweedse spanning! Tip: reserveer de boeken bij de bieb, ze halen ze uit heel je provincie naar jouw bibliotheek voor 1 euro.

Hunting and Gathering - Anna Gavalda

Loana said...

you should read "her fearful symmetrie" by audrey niffenegger. she writes about familiar relationships in a lovely and at the same time spooky way. i read it this summer in about 4 days - pretty good!!

if you're into humour and want something not too heavy, I'm a massive fan of nick hornby myself.
