When living in Sweden I used to read... about one book a week. Since moving to Berlin I've read... maybe 5 books a year. Now I plan to read more, spend more time at home and less time out and about because I have neglected the lonewolf side of myself for quite some time and now this wolf is howling like a maniac ;)

Did you read anything good lately?
I just bought The little friend by Donna Tartt, love her books and have been waiting to get it in Swedish but ended up buying the German version as I don't know when I will see Sweden again. Looking forward to start reading it!

Also, thank you so much for all your Wrist Worms purchases! I just love the colours in the picture above.

  1. Last year I read "Eat pray and love" by Elizabeth Gilber but I think that isn´t the kind of book you will like.
    Two books I really recommend is "The Inhabited Woman" by Gioconda Belli a Nicaraguan writer and "Voices" by Ursula K. Le Guin (If you like science fiction)
    Happy new year from Argentina!

  2. Donna Tart's "The Secret History" is also good, though maybe not as good as "The Goldfinch" (thanks again for recommending it). If you like whodunits, try Ruth Rendell's "The Face of Trespass". A bit old, but really good (hippy London, bohemian writer, seductive woman -you'll read it in one go). If you want something light but not silly to cheer you up, try "The brightest star in the sky" by Marian Keyes (sexy but gripping). If you are looking for high-brow literature, "On Beauty" by Zadie Smith will make you feel intellectual while enjoying yourself. Oh, and "Eat Pray and Love" is good too, especially the first two parts. Enjoy your enclosure and happy new year from Jena!

  3. My favorites that I read last year are The Summer Book by Tove Jansson and Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink by Elvis Costello (I actually listened to him read the audiobook version and it was fantastic!) I also read/loved a few non-fiction books by Jon Ronson (Lost At Sea, The Psychopath Test, and So You've Been Publicly Shamed), but I can't decide which of those I liked best.

    I really loved The Little Friend, but sadly I don't see it mentioned as much as The Secret History and The Goldfinch. I just love Donna Tartt.

  4. I recommend everything written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, especially Americanah. Deeply interesting and entertaining at the same time and her use of language is fab.

  5. I've read I know why the caged bird sings - I know it's not news, but if you haven't read it also, I recommend it.
    and as always in January, I'm rereading Paul Auster's Winter Journal...

  6. I just read the latest from Peter Hoeg. Loved it (as the other ones too) and highly recommend!! Happy reading times - and howling too. I know exactly what you mean by that. =)
