Hello everybody, I feel like I have been slowing down on my reading. But it’s summer so I’ll take some sunshine over more books right now. I think I’m still recuperating from a very very…..Very long winter. So I have two books to quickly mention this week.
Little Nothing by Marisa Silver ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Once again I am having a problem giving a recap of this book, I might suck at this….Or as I would like to believe this is a hard book to describe. The novel is set in a unknown country, but judging by the names somewhere in eastern Europe or Russia, in the early 1900’s. The story follows to life of a girl that is born deformed, and then magical transformations in and out of human form. This is my first book that I would call magical realism and I really liked it. I enjoyed that the magic is just there almost in the background, how it happens or why isn’t really relevant to the story. It focuses on her changes as a person, not just physical. I was completely engrossed and I hope to give this genre another try. I hope to do a full review shortly…ish.
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – This is a modern classic so many of you may have read this one. It is about a man who has an IQ of 70, who undergoes a medical procedure to up his mental capacity. It then follows how he changes along with the changes in abilities and knowledge. I loved this book, I read some parts of it when I was in high school for class, I liked what I read back then and I loved it now as an adult. Watching the development of his character is so sad, it’s almost tragic. I will be using this book for my On This Bookish Day post next moth if you guys are interested in that.
I am still currently reading What If? by Randall Munroe, I read a little bit every day, and it’s still really fun. Since I literally just finished Flowers for Algernon, I haven’t picked my next book yet, any suggestions?
