Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

    Four years is impressive. Your blog is such a well written and eclectic catalogue of book reviews and is one of my favorite places on the web.

    A book I'd recommend. Ooh so many but I'm going to plump for The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom.

  13. Happy anniversary - 4 years feels like a good, serious chunk of time and it's not easy to maintain! I've been meaning to explore Glattauer, so thanks for reminding me.
    Book I'd recommend from my recent reads? Jonas Karlsson's The Room - a surreal satire of corporate life which really resonated with me.

  14. I think one of my favourites so far this year was All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. It totally broke me, but it's such a wonderful and deeply affecting read! Highly recommend it (alongside ice cream and plenty of Kleenex!).

    Happy Blogoversary!! <3

  20. Hi Lindsay,

    Congratulations on your blogging aniversary!

    I must admit that I never have kept track of when I started up Fiction Books in its very basic form, however your post and having a couple of minutes free time, set me thinking and checking things out. I was completely amazed to discover that I published my first post in April 2010 and that Fiction Books is almost 5 years old!!

    I was quite tempted to enter your great celebration giveaway, however when I checked out your excellent review, I got the impression that the ending had somehow been left up in the air, ready for a sequel. As I am not a great series or sequence reader, that kind of dampened my interest, I'm afraid.

    Good Luck! to all who decide to enter :)

    Yvonne
