I have two midterms today and one on Wednesday. I CAN DO THIS. Took this lovely picture and an absolutely amazing caffe in Chelsea yesterday while I was taking a break with a cappuccino and some Vegetarian. Happy reading 📚❤️ { #thevegetarian #hankang #bookstagram #bookworm #reading #currentlyreading #read }

#deweysreadathon is over! I read for 7 hours and 9 minutes (I prioritized sleep since I am still recovering from being sick). I finished 4 books and read all but one chapter of #catdaddy during the #readathon. I finished it soon after. It was fun, can't wait til April! #thevegetarian #nicky #adulthoodisamyth #angelcatbird

🇩🇪 Hauptsache ich bemerke es erst jetzt, dass ich euch mein anderes aktuelles Buch hier noch gar nicht gezeigt habe 🤣🙈🙈
.
Ich lese gerade das kurze Buch ( nur 188 Seiten) The Vegetarian von Han Kang und wow. Also bereits nach 60 Seiten kann ich nur sagen: wow!!! Dieses Buch beinhaltet so eine krasse Thematik und es schockiert, berührt, verstört, lässt mitfühlen, lässt einen zornig werden und so so vieles auf den ersten Seiten.😲😲😲 literarisch ist es für mich etwas ganz ganz Großes und da geht das Herz der Geisteswissenschaftlerin in mir auf. 💕💕💕 .
Anspruchsvoll und dann wieder simpel und so viele Thematiken, so viele Ansätze von Mentalität, Verhaltensweisen, sozialen Strukturen und vieles mehr ist in diesem Buch. Ein Blick auf die süd-koreanische traditionelle Lebensweise/ Ansichten etc und ach, wartet die Rezi einfach ab 👍🏼👍🏼 .
🇬🇧I started to read #thevegetarian by #hankang today and even if I've only read 60 pages so far this book kills me.... it's unbelievably good. It's intelligent style of writing and referring to an amount of unspeakable topics, with the background of social life structures in South Korea is a mind blowing experience 💕😲💕😲 you really should read this book 👍🏼

Finished my first book for #deweysreadathon! #thevegetarian #hankang I'm still recovering from being sick, so my drink of choice is an orange juice box! #ratbookdrink #readathon #book #bookstagram  4/5 ⭐
A bizarre story about a young women in modern day Seoul stopping to eat meat and claiming she was turning into a tree, which caused chaos in her life and her family. 
A masterful novel with intense feelings, some artful graphic and a bit of violence. The translation was beautifully crafted. This book deservedly won the Man Booker International Prize in 2016.

Late lunch and a new book. ❤ #wales #21stofoctober #hankang #thevegetarian #reading #personal
An extremely strange but ultimately very satisfying book about bodies, independence, passion, obedience, and more. Told in three sections with three different narrators (none of whom are “the vegetarian”) we learn more about a woman who suddenly decides to stop eating meat and everything that happens as a result of that. That sounds like a silly premise, but it’s not. #bookstagram #books #goodreads #reading #TheVegetarian

"Quello che aveva davanti agli occhi era il corpo di una bella ragazza, convenzionalmente un oggetto di desiderio, eppure era un corpo dal quale era stato eliminato ogni desiderio. E non il rozzo, crasso desiderio carnale, non nel suo caso: ciò a cui la cognata aveva rinunciato, o così sembrava, era piuttosto la vita stessa che il suo corpo rappresentava"

Crap! The world is mostly garbage. These books are not. These books have ladies being gross and dark and strange. My whole reading life sometimes feels like a process of me discovering, book by book, that the horrors and magic I encountered were not in my imagination — they were being experienced and imagined and written down by other people. What a gift. What horror. What a gift. #herbodyandotherparties #bitchplanet #thevegetarian

Heute hat mir ein Klassenkamerad den neuen Roman von der koreanischen Autorin Han Kang ausgeliehen. Es heißt 'Menschenwerk' und ich bin schon richtig gespannt. 😍 Denn ihren Roman aus dem letzten Jahr, 'Die Vegetarierin', fand ich zwar skurril, aber sehr gut! Es war interessant mitzuerleben, wie ein Mensch eine so drastische Veränderungen durchlebt und dabei sein gesamtes Umfeld auf den Kopf stellt. Und das nur mit dem Verzicht auf Fleisch. 😊📚

Forever fighting against instagram cropping my pics but hey that's life

The Vegetarian by Han Kang takes place in Korea. I don’t quite know how to summarize it, to be honest. In brief, it’s about a woman who becomes a vegetarian who then descends down the path of mental illness and it is told in 3 parts via the husband, the brother-in-law’s and the sister’s point of view.
.
Honestly, my first thoughts after completing this book was that, this is very bizarre! Many people on goodreads wrote that they felt powerful, strong emotions; some even felt moved to tears! And that just made me feel like I read the book wrongly or something.
.
For such a short story, there were actually many themes raised. I will just mention a few.
.
1. Gender inequality - The most glaring instance was the way the main character’s husband treated  her. Even taking into context that Asian culture usually has gender based roles for husbands and wives, the husband’s attitude was still too selfish for my liking. But I’ll throw another less obvious example to muddy it up more. While Yeong-Hye (main protagonist)’s relationship with her husband gets a lot of scrutiny and criticism, I think it’s also worth looking at her sister’s (In-Hye) marriage. In-Hye’s marriage is almost the opposite of Yeong-Hye’s. Where Yeong-Hye plays the traditional housewife role, her sister is a shop owner and supports her artist husband & young son as the main breadwinner of the family. Her sister’s husband is envied (and at the same time also despised) by the main character’s husband as he “does not need to work and can enjoy life”. It reminds me of what Sheryl Sandberg mentioned in her book Lean In, that as society progresses to accept women in dominant work roles, it should similarly learn to accept men in non-dominant work roles or non-working, family roles (the modern house husband).

수상작은 도리어 기대에 못 미치는 경우가 많은데 
일단 술술 잘 읽혀서 놀랐다.
예상만큼 독특하고 
일상적이지만 비정상적이고 
우울함을 넘어 그로테스크하다.

🇬🇧 I read The Vegetarian earlier this year and I’m still not entirely certain what I actually thought of it! 😬 It’s definitely a book that has stayed with me and made me think; whether that’s actually a blessing or a curse though I’m not so sure. 😜 🇸🇪 Jag läste Vegetarianen tidigare i år och jag är fortfarande inte helt säker på vad jag faktiskt tyckte om den. 😬 Det är definitivt en bok som har stannat kvar och fått mig att tänka; jag vet inte riktigt om det är bra eller dåligt dock. 😜

During the readathon I plan on starting and finishing Kings Rising. If there is time left I'll also start The Vegetarian (or I might continue reading the book I'm reading right now, we'll see). Graphic novels are always nice for breaks.

I re-started to read this Man Booker International Prize winner last weekend, and finished it in 2 days.
.
I really don’t know how should I feel about the book.  This obviously isn’t a casual read.  It was emotionally intense, weird, strange, disturbing, confusing, sensual, violent...
.

To be honest, I am not sure what I was supposed to take from the book. It’s irritating.
.
And, I feel frustrated that Yeong-hye’s dream was never actually described in details. What was it? Did I miss something? 😓
. 
PS:  I really want to see this book as a movie.

Today was an incredibly rainy and drizzly day, so the bulk of the day was spent reading — no complaints here! In an amazing feat of reading, I somehow managed to read all of The Vegetarian last night and today. Those of you who talked about how gripping it was were completely correct. I found myself stopping after each section and just sitting there for a moment, reflecting, because the story really was thought-provoking. So needless to say, I have thoughts! The thing that really intrigued me about the book was what the main character Yeong-hye actually does in the narrative. The story essentially focuses on the way the other characters in the story interpret her actions and the little bit of dialogue she has. But really, she doesn't do much directly or on her own (that we see as readers). So it seems that female agency in the novel is figured in a complicated way. Is it a destructive agency? Or is it only presented that way because Yeong-hye is so inscrutable to those around her, so her actions are read as destructive or passive. I don't think she is a passive character because her negative choices (i.e. The choice to NOT DO something) are action; choosing to not eat meat is an action, refusing what others want her to do is a choice. I could also see how someone used to "feminism" within the western context would find the female characters and the narrative less...positive? progressive? than other texts, but that being said I am happy to see female experience figured in a non-western context. I also wonder whether the focus on Yeong-hye and the vegetarianism is a "red herring" — the other characters have their own inner impulses and desires that propel them towards equally destructive/problematic outcomes. This is not a cohesive response to the novel 😂 I am still processing it all BUT wow I see what you all meant. And also WOW that was the fastest I've finished a book in a long time.

The sweetest mail with the most thoughtful message. This postcard is from Melissa of @avidreader25, who is one of my good friends that I've met online, thanks to this not-so-little book community we get to have. 
She recently visited Iceland with her husband and toddler, and I was so inspired by their adventures together as a young family. 
This postcard got me thinking how crazy it is that this bookish world online has lead me to build relationships with such great people, all through our shared love of reading. Now that I'm thinking about it, I remember I first "met" @avidreader25 online in 2010 when we were both book bloggers. It's crazy to think that almost a decade later, we are still connected.

I haven’t seen humour and social commentary done so effectively in such few words... maybe just maybe people are right when they deem Han Kang to be the Kafka of Korea. #words #from #books #extract #thevegetarian #hankang #psychology #fiction
„The image of a man and woman, their bodies made brilliant with painted flowers, having sex against a background of unutterable silence. Their shifting limbs matter-of-fact in that vacuum. A progression of scenes lurching from violence to tenderness, with no extreme left unexplored. One stripped-down, drawn-out moment of quiet purification, extremity sublimated into some kind of peace." #aboutlastnight #bookclub #hamburg #thevegetarian #hankang #korean#literature #toosexyforyourmaidenaunt #bizarre #bookrecommendation

One stripped-down, drawn-out moment of quiet purification, extremity sublimated into some kind of peace." #aboutlastnight  #bookclub  #hamburg  #thevegetarian  #hankang  #korean #literature  #toosexyforyourmaidenaunt  #bizarre  #bookrecommendation 
The best travel companion for me is a good book. I finally picked up this highly praised novel by Han Kang and am thrilled to dive in 🙌🏼🤗

It's Friday and I am mostly dead ☠️ Woke up last night with a fever...the demon cold has worsened. My husband took one look at me and was like, “Uh, you’re staying home.” So he’s off to eastern Pennsylvania for a friend’s courthouse wedding (big wedding next year), and I’m staying at home all sicky and miserable. I guess that’s Friday the 13th for ya. •
.
For an appropriately creepy/haunting book recommendation, I’ve chosen Han Kang's The Vegetarian. This book is a three part novella, translated from the original Korean. Each part is told from the perspective of someone close to the quiet and unassuming Yeong-hye---her husband, her brother-in-law, and then her sister. They each try to manipulate or control her after her seemingly abrupt decision to become a vegetarian. It’s surreal, cinematic, and completely mesmerizing. It offers both a unique look at South Korean culture--especially in regards to feelings such as shame and desire, and issues like marital rape--and a depiction of womanhood that is entirely universal and relatable. As the people around her try to control her body, mind, and spirit, Yeong-hye struggles to maintain autonomy and free expression. It’s a perfect Kafka-esque book to lose yourself in on this spooky day. •

I am in love with Fall, you wouldn't be able to guess since it hasn't been fall here yet. Still pretty summer-y, but once it hits, I'm there. Fall and Winter are my absolute favorites, I wish I could post photos from there all year long! QOTD: What is your favorite season?

2017 has been Stephen King's year in television and movies. It, Gerald's Game on @netflix, Castle Rock on @hulu, Mr. Mercedes, and more. I'm glad his works are getting so much attention, so while you're at it, consider binge-reading all his books because THEY ARE PERFECT. Weirdly enough, my favorite King book is NOT horror. It is Green Mile. Messed me up emotionally. As far as my favorite King horror, it's Misery. For movie adaptations, it's hands down The Shining. What's yours?

yesterday was #mentalhealthday and #helloyellow so even tho i'm late i wanted to share some of my fav books abt mental health ✌ 📍📚
han kang - the vegetarian 🍎/ it's a really interesting, Kafkaesque novel abt a girl that after "a dream" decides to stop eating meat and basically the plot revolves around her mental illnesses (schizofrenia and anorexia nervosa) and how they worsen as the time goes by// rupi kaur - milk and honey 🍯/ the worldwide famous feminist anthology that literally everyone can relate to and learn from. the poems are so simple yet they express really well the feelings and sorrows and even the recovery process of the writer//
ariel - sylvia plath 🌱/ plath suffered from MDD and by reading this poetry collection you can actually feel the same raw, deep pain that she felt during her life and it can give an understanding of how it feels to actually suffer from depression to someone that has never experienced this illness //
ps. soz for my black fingers, i've been writing all day long and the ink stained my hand #lefthandedproblems

Reading this strange book translated from the Korean about a woman who suddenly cannot stand the idea of eating meat anymore and becomes nearly mad in the process while undergoing a physical metamorphosis. Man Booker International 2016.

Ho letto questo libro in due giorni, non perché mi sia piaciuto ma è un libro che ti mette una certa turbolenza dentro. L’ho iniziato ridendo delle battute, anche perché mi sentivo totalmente uguale la protagonista. Mi dicevo: ma sono io! Però ben presto le cose sono cambiate ma ormai ero già dentro la storia e non vedevo l’ora di uscire. Un libro bello, molto bello ma non credo per tutti. Io adoro questo genere dove la mente la fa da padrona, dove si può esplorare questa zona molto difficile e a volte incomprensibile. Il libro è diviso in tre atti. Il primo dove chi parla è il marito della vegetariana, questa donna che ben presto si verrà a sapere che ha qualche problema di mente, la seconda parte è parlata dal cognato della vegetariana e la fine da sua sorella. Un libro intenso da leggere tutto in una sola volta, un libro che fa male, disturba ma questo mi ha fatto capire di quanto mi sia piaciuta la scrittura di questa scrittrice. Ho letto alcuni commenti che dicevano di non aver capito bene, io ci sto lavorando, credo che scriverò un post dedicato a questa lettura. Voi l’avete letto? Cosa ne pensate?

Please excuse me but I’m still currently in SHOCK after reading such an elaborate body of work. #thevegetarian by #hankang tackles elements of self inflicted pain and isolation, abuse, obsession, lust, and leaves you questioning what human “freedom” truly is ALL IN UNDER 200pgs. I’m already planning to reread this novel and it’s deserves all of the stars!! ✨✨✨✨✨/5

Ich konnte gestern Nacht nicht schlafen und hab auf Spotify nach einem Hörbuch gesucht. Als ich "Die Vegetarierin" von Han Kang gefunden hab musste ich unbedingt rein hören. Ich habe bis jetzt eigentlich nur gutes davon gehört. 
Nach einem Viertel des Hörbuches muss ich sagen, dass es ganz anders ist als ich gedacht hatte. Es gefällt mir bis jetzt ziemlich gut 😊
Ich glaube aber, dass der Titel "Die Veganerin" mehr Sinn ergeben hätte 😅🌸🌺 #dievegetarierin #hankang #hörbuch #schlaflosenächte #audiobook #thevegetarian #bookdarling #instabooks #bookstagram #buchnerd #booknerd #spotify #spotifyhörbuch #spotifyaudiobooks

@Regrann from @enthalpybooks - #BookHangover
Ini tipe novel yang harus dibaca sekali langsung selesai dalam satu hari. Sulit untuk melepaskannya bahkan ketika setelah selesai menamatkannya. Cerita yang luar biasa, jadi salah satu novel terbaik yang saya baca tahun ini.
.
Sekilas mungkin cerita di novel ini sederhana, tentang seorang istri bernama Kim Yeong Hye yang memutuskan menjadi vegetarian setelah diganggu mimpi buku terus menerus, dibumbui kisah erotis terlarang dan berakhir di rumah sakit jiwa. Namun, saya merasa kisah ini adalah semacam pemberontakan yang kuat, gugatan perempuan terhadap lingkungan di luar dirinya untuk secara independen memiliki tubuhnya sendiri. Mimpi buruk yang tiba-tiba hadir pada malam-malamnya Yeong Hye sungguh mengherankan dan menimbulkan banyak pertanyaan. Apakah tiba-tiba ? Apa ini bentuk akumulasi selama hidupnya ? Ada hubungannya dengan pengalaman masa kecilnya, dengan ayahnya, ibunya, saudaranya, suaminya, budayanya ?
.
Hang Kang sungguh piawai tak terkira dalam membalut rangkaian cerita. Karena tinggal di Indonesia saya dapat memahami bahwa budaya di Korea Selatan juga mirip dengan di sini dengan budaya patriarki yang kental. Sungguh keadaan yang tidak adil sejak bayi perempuan dilahirkan. Banyak hal yang mengatur apa yang seharusnya dipakai, bagaimana dilekatkan pada tubuh bertubi-tubi datang. Tindakan Yeong Hye  terhadap pemakaian bra yang mengekang jadi wujud  penolakannya. Ia ingin memiliki tubuhnya sendiri. Utuh.
.
Buku ini layak diganjar banyak penghargaan, lebih dari itu layak diperbincangkan oleh laki-laki, perempuan, dikuliti dan dianalisa dari berbagai sisi budaya, sastra dan psikologi.
.
Malam tadi setelah habis paragraf terakhir, saya lelah dan langsung tidur dengan perasaan dihantui oleh cerita ini. Pagi harinya masih terasa pengar di kepala. Sungguh buku yang sangat memabukkan, layaknya soju yang keras dan enak.

Divided into three acts representing different characters' points of view, this is a chilling novella about one woman's metamorphosis after decidedly refusing to eat meat. Displaying nuances of gender roles and societal expectations with short beautiful prose, we witness the upheaval of the lives affected by this decision. #thevegetarian #bookworm #bookstagram #booksintheair #bookreview #bookreviewer #ilovebooks #readmore #manbookerinternationalprize #hankang #novella #kafka

Somewhat a not so easy read... the Object of this book (Yeong-hye) first seems to be docile and average, until she has a violent dream and decides to become a vegetarian. Defying her husband, parents and siblings as she physically withers away, yet becomes so fixated with living as part of nature. 
Leaving behind the humanity's violence, being one with nature.
I disliked all the male characters in this book by the way... 😠😠

"The feeling that she had never really lived in this world caught her by surprise. It was a fact. She had never lived. Even as a child, as far back as she could remember, she had done nothing but endure. She had believed in her own inherent goodness, her humanity, and lived accordingly, never causing anyone harm. Her devotion to doing things the right way had been unflagging, all her successes had depended on it, and she would have gone on like that indefinitely. She didn't understand why, but faced with those decaying buildings and straggling grasses, she was nothing but a child who had never lived." - The Vegetarian, Han Kang

She didn't understand why, but faced with those decaying buildings and straggling grasses, she was nothing but a child who had never lived." - The Vegetarian, Han Kang

Though Han Lang’s book, The Vegetarian, is titled so it talks little about the diet and lifestyle choice of not eating meat. More of a metaphor for something bigger, the main protagonist Yeong-hye struggles with those around her and the life changing decision she has made. Now she’s in charge, and they might not like it.

Taken at @konyvbar where the degustation menu is based solely on a book. Great concept! This was peach and almond “creme brûlée” from the book “The Vegetarian” by Han Kang. When your boyfriend takes better photos than you you simply just have to steal them! 📷 credit @markrfletcher #cremebrulee #hankang #thevegetarian #konyvbar #budapest #travel #foodblogger #foodphotography #peach #dessert #pollen #vegetarian
