It's about autistic boy and it's really lovely.

    ReplyDelete

    Favorite Books(s): "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri (all her writing is great). Also anything by Edith Wharton (especially when she writes about New York society). "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert is a very good read (in many ways a feminist manifesto, that's why man like to complain about this book) her newst book "Commited" is good too.
    I also love Adam Gopnick"s "Through The Children's Gate" And "From Paris to the Moon".
    And my favorite novella is Theodor Sturm's "Der Schimmelreiter" (Sorry, not clear what the title of this book is in English).

  99. Some lovely picks on here! It's too hard to just pick one, but books I've liked recently include "Slow Man" (Coetzee), the novels of Javier Marias, "The Lost Books of the Odyssey" (by Zach Mason - great stories to read to your honey in bed before drifting off to sleep)...

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am not a big reader (perhaps a novel a year? Some people think this makes me a heathen of some kind)
    However I like to think the books I finish are therefore well worth reading.
    One of my favourites is Germinal by Emile Zola. An unpretentious epic, so evocative and page-turning and absorbing, you feel shock and injustice, wonder and despair, it's wonderful. Not a word wasted... that's how I like'em.
    I will try and read some of the other picks here!

    ReplyDelete
  109. One of my favourite books is "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole. The story is set in New Orleans in the early 1960s. The central character is Ignatius still living with his mother at age 30. He must set out to get a job. In his quest for employment he has various adventures with colorful French Quarter characters. -> Very funny!

  141. Dear Sandra, this is very hard to choose, but I think my favourite book is a childrens book: " The Miraculous Journey of Edward Toulane" by Kate DiCamillo. It's about losing and finding things and about real friendship. It's a fantastic book which made me cry in the end. You can read it in one evening.

  142. Hi Sandra

    Those are great looking wrist worms!

    One of my favourite books is "The Old Man and Mr. Smith" by Peter Ustinov. I've read it at least three times since I first got it, and each time it's as funny and brilliant as the first time. Another book I really enjoyed reading is "The Jitterbug Perfume" by Tom Robbins.

  143. An equal music by Vikram Seth.
    I love to win this one

    ReplyDelete
  144. Oh I want to win these really bad! My favorite? That must be 'My name is Asher Lev' of Chaim Potok. I remember how I felt reading it and I even read it again (something I never do).
    Thank you for doing this give away!

  145. My alltime favourite is 'The Brothers Karamazov' but currently I love The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro. There's a movie of it with Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, it's great, too. I like your smart giveaways!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Hey, I just finished watching the movie that brought me far away from my self and- at the very same time- very close to. Though it is extremely different- it somehow reminded me of "Alice in Wonderland". I keep thinking of the tea drinking scene; I long for something like that very badly at the moment.

  157. "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood is the last really great book I read.
    Wikipedia describes it as a "feminist dystopian novel" but don't be put off - it's actually a real page turner!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Dark passion, turmoil, revenge, hate, true love, wilderness... my favourite book has to be Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë (but "The Member of the Wedding" by Carson Mc Cullers and "Eureka Street" by Robert Mc Liam Wilson, aren't far behind)...

    ReplyDelete
  159. "the shadow of the wind" by carlos ruiz zafón is absolutely beautiful. you can't stop reading it!

  165. I am currently trying to better my German by reading some translations of my favorite English books so that my familiarity with the story will help me understand the German. The current book I am (slowly) getting through is Salinger's Franny and Zooey. I remember so clearly reading this book for the first time as a teenager and feeling really warm and at home in its melancholy yet erudite and cosmopolitan world. I love, love, love it.

    ReplyDelete
  166. hmm... there are so many books i really like.
    i recently read
    "looking for alaska" by john green which i really liked.
    two "classics" i really enjoyed - and do so still - are "the catcher in the rye" and "the bell jar"!

    some time the day will come and i'll buy a pair of your lovely wrist worms anyway! :)

  172. my favorite book of all time is moominpappa's memoirs by my big idol tove jansson. i'm currently reading it out loud to my husband bit by bit every evening. it's my bible.

    ReplyDelete
  173. There are fortunately too many brilliant books out there to name the one and only. But as the colder times of the year are approaching I fondly think of "Snow falling on Cedars" by David Guterson, which convinced me to give crime stories a chance - not for the worse ...

    ReplyDelete
  174. i have so many favourite books that i find it difficult to say exactly one is my favourite. however, some of my favourites are a wolf at the table by augusten burroughs - in fact, pretty much anything written by augusten burroughs is a bit of a revelation in my opinion. i also loved the book thief by markus zusak, shantaram by gregory david roberts and one of my all time favourites is to kill a mockingbird by harper lee. i hope you find lots of great books to read over the swedish winter and i am keeping everything crossed that i win those delightful wrist worms!

  183. Hello Sandra, you did put us in acction with your nice giveaway.
    I love your blog and your work. To be honest I was just to afford myself one of your wrist worms, but I would try my luck first ;)
    My two favorites are: Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart and Hosseini's The Kite Runner (last one was adapted into a film of the same name, that's great too).
    Have a nice time and a lot of fun reading ...

  200. Hi Sandra,
    I must admit I just bought a pair of wrist worms, but you can never have too many, right?
    One of my favorite books is called "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. In the US it's listed as young adult, but it's an amazing read for all ages. It' set in Austria during WWII, narrated by Death, but it's really about love and ties between people who have difficulty expressing it. Inspiring and moving.
