Lovely Marina from the extraordinary, super magical and dreamy blog https://booksofmagic.wordpress.com created a beautiful post joining Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. There is a different themed post of top 10 choices every week and this Tuesday’s theme was just perfect! I adore lists, although I am the worst person when it comes to all kinds of decisions. You have been warned:)
The love of my life…My obsession and the reason why the question ”What’s your favourite book?” is the easiest ever!
One of the finest, most haunting, beautifully sad books…A shuttering debut by one of the most talented writers of our times…
A mystical adventure in the heart of Lappland. A tale of secrets, magic and evil…A story of two strong, captivating heroines and the world beyond our own…
It is one of the rarest of cases when I couldn’t stop myself from reading the last chapter when I reached about 80% mark. I just wanted to know. This is how deeply I feel in love with Hoffman’s novel.
A marvelous novel rich in atmosphere, suspense, feelings and intriguing characters….
The finest play ever written….
Historical Fiction isn’t about tenderness and romanticism. The way I see it, it is about avoiding the faults of the past. And Leine’s novel provided a thoroughly satisfying result. You just have to proceed with caution…
It is a novel to be cherished and appreciated by readers who desire meaningful stories and knowledge in the hands of a trusted artist. It is a human study of the darkest hours of our existence, when we’re faced with despair and death and don’t know in whom to trust our hopes. It is a book by Hannah Kent. This should be reason enough for you to read it..
In my opinion, this is a hugely underrated masterpiece and I’m not even particularly fond of Coelho…
The last word belongs to the greatest of the greats…
Well, this was even harder than I thought…I am sure that -with a few exceptions- if I were to write this list again, I would decide on different books but this is the joy of reading. This theme clearly demonstrates the magic of books, the ability to travel to places you may never visit, to eras that have come and gone….
