All about the non-fiction this month!

Ever wonder where the Falkland Islands are? Wonder no more! "Bleaker House" follows an author as she travels to an isolated island to write. Interspersed with fictional chapters. 
Looooved "Too Fat Too Slutty Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman". Who doesn't love reading about badass females that continue to do what ever they want?

Spoiler for "Dead Wake" - The US enters the war at the end. I love a good Erik Larson deep dive, and this historical non-fiction about the sinking of Lusitania is extremely detailed. 
Finally, "The Little Book of Hygge" (still no idea how to pronounce), is very cute and full of ideas on how to keep your house and life cozy and Danish. It would make a great housewarming gift!

A book with a family member in the title #readingchallenge2017 #book44
Even though I snapped a picture of my current book at home before I started reading it... I couldn't pass up snapping a picture of it with my current scenery. The second book in the Everlife series. #book44 #bookstagram #readingchallenge #52booksof2017 #bookdragon #bookstagramfeature #pacificbeach #california
August Round-Up! #Book43 #Book44 and #Book45 of 2017.
.
Lamb by Christopher Moore. Re-read of one of my favorite books. Hilarious retelling of Jesus' missing years.
.
Space Team by Barry J. Hutchinson. A funny indie book, Hitchhiker's Guide meets Guardians of the Galaxy.
.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. Most of this fantasy novel about magical dimensions felt like a prologue to the series, but the middle of the book had me racing to the end.

โ€œAll animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.โ€ This could have been written about our current political state. Another book that I should have read before, but sadly saved it for a more stressful time where lies, fear, false threats, inequality, and power hunger are on the main stage of every day life. 
It was a reminder to stay informed and active or else the pigs in charge will continue to take power and act in their own self-interest. #resist

Finally onto the next book. I first watched the movie adapted from this book with Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum. I thought it was an excellent movie, then learned it was a book as well. They did make some changes in the movie (of course), but the story stays the same. A wealthy woman in her mid 30's is in advanced stages of ALS. Bec is the adrift college student who answers the want ad to be her caregiver.  Their closeness transforms both of their live's and relationships. #book44 #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #readingchallenge #52booksof2017

Ok... the title intrigues me the most. "The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of A Window And Disappeared" is certainly a mouthful and that is what attracted me to the Swedish writer. I didn't even know what to expect when I bought the book. My verdict? Awesome book! Not the kind of book that I always go for. But everything works out in the end. Adventures this man went through are so interesting! And I loved the follow up book "The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden"!

I decided to take a break from YA Fantasy and get into some nonfiction. I canโ€™t believe I never read any of the books that @barackobama wrote! It is almost depressing to read this book now but that mentality really goes against everything he writes here. Iโ€™m excited to read more!

#book44 Itโ€™s the 22nd century and whatโ€™s left of America has survived the second American Civil War (fought over the continuing use of fossil fuels after the coasts have eroded from climate change). The book is told by a historian, looking back on the war that killed 10 million and the reunification plague that killed another 100 million, with quotes from โ€œprimary sources.โ€
The premise of the book is excellent and the first half of the book is well-executed.  If I had rated the book during the first half, Iโ€™d have given it 4 stars.  Unfortunately, the second half of the book stumbles, with the passage of time feeling rushed and the changes to Sarat feel like the author gave up on her.  The second half is more like 3 starsโ€”good, just not as good as the first half.
Itโ€™s a timely bookโ€”for those who look at terrorism coming out of places like Syria and wonder how it could happen that someone could be sucked in by violent ideologyโ€”this book shows how it happens.  Ultimately, the book is about how you radicalize and destroy a childโ€”and how the damage done to one child can have far broader effects than anyone might imagine.
The author has a background in war reportingโ€”Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, the Arab Spring in Egypt, and on-the-ground in Ferguson.  His experiences come through in his writing and lend the story of how Sarat was made vulnerable and then radicalized authenticity.
Not a perfect book and I wish the second half were as good as the firstโ€”but one I still recommend. (I listened to the audiobookโ€”the voice is a good pick, the only caveat is that this is a book you have to actively pay attention toโ€”you canโ€™t zone out for a minute or two and then easily come back.) โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ1/2

#book44 #warporn by #royscranton was a wee bit of a disappoint! It is extremely disjointed and unengagingly disruptive. Its only when you get to the last fifty pages or so that the book really picks up what it's meant to be talking about - the manner in which sexual atrocities were conducted on Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib and elsewhere and the perverse depravity they were subjected to. The author wants to say that war damages and messes up the soldier as well and it's not just PTSD that it can be attributed to. The fact that the soldiers' psyche is completely debauched post war just takes too long to be established in this story and when it does, it's neither a moment of enlightenment nor shock. #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #bookreview #booklove #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #bpbspine #booklist2016 #booksarebetterthanbrownies #vancdiaries #vancitybuzz #burnabypubliclibrary #igersvancouver

Initially upon reading I was awed by this book as it discussed how people often ignore their heart's desires and stay put and settle, as the fear of losing what you currently have is more than the fear of not obtaining your true and somewhat unclear desire if you try for it; it's a risk and it takes courage to pursue your true destiny. Layers of metaphor embroil the protagonist in a series of unfortunate events that mean he loses everything and yet he truly loses nothing. It inspired me to live my life fearlessly, but not recklessly, and to trust that I am a resilient, resourceful and capable human being; life goes on regardless. There is always another chapter to the story and the omens are there for you every step of the way if you choose to observe them.

That said, the book is excruciatingly religious and mythical in the last part i.e. talking to the wind and the creator. I feel I'm a very spiritual person but within the scope of logic; what was described was beyond farcical however metaphorical was its intend. I was also disappointed with the ending but I suppose it leaves you with the take away message that no matter how much searching you do, and whether you find love along your way or not, your treasure is right beneath your feet #Book44 #Bookstagram ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ…

"Traveling through the worlds gives you perspective. It makes you value what you have." // Unlike most of young adult books these days that lean towards depression and teen angst, has a protagonist who's confused and pathetic, this book has a strong-minded main character - Marguerite. She's not out to find herself, but to save herself. In A Thousand Pieces of You, I didn't buy the romance angle. But here in the second book? Romance in a multiverse? Loved it! Huehue ๐Ÿ˜œ I will get to the final book early next year! #book44

#book44 Because nothing makes me more aware of the fact that I was born in the wrong time period than reading Jane Austen. #bookstagram #booklover #classic #nikkikt13reads #janeausten #love #reread
This book is amazing. 
I have no idea how I haven't read it before now.

What a crazy, creepy book. I immediately wanted to go back and reread it after reading the ending. A bookseller in #stlouis at #leftbankbooks  recommended this when I said I like suspense books that grip you right away. This sure did the trick. #my2016readinglist #myreadinglist2016 #book44 #inadarkdarkwood #ruthware

I had to read this for work. I did not enjoy it. As one of the "Appalachians" she so condescendingly described, I find her book a little off-putting. Now I have to go brush my one tooth and wait for my husband to get up so he can tell me what I'm allowed to do for the day. #book44 #book44of2016 #whydonttheyjustgetajob #didntlikeit #wontreaditagain #doesntdeserveotherbookhashtags
