Bookish Week 2/10-16

Finished
Pope Joan- I liked it. I just feel that the story and Joan did not reach their full potential.
Switchcraft- It left much to be desired.

Updating the Queue

  • Balzac and the little seamstress-  Dumped. I was not feeling it.
  • Deep in the Heart of Trouble { The Trouble With Brides}- I think the story for this one is better so far than Courting Trouble.
  • A Game of Thrones-not into. Just need to read it in March when the commercials will give me Game of Thrones fever.
  • Anna Karenina-good.
  • Fools Die – surprised by how good this book started off.

Thoughts/Phases

  • Thinking about how much holding on to books under the excuse of giving them a chance. It is time to be ruthless and get rid of more books.
  • If I get in the 200s for books left to read, I would be so happy.
  • I find it weird that I heard about the Pope retiring while reading Pope Joan.
  • Giving away books is fun. I gave my little cousin some books. I feel like I am helping a fellow reader. I wish people I knew some people who actually read. So I could get and give books.
  • 24 hour book break. I was not into reading and wanted to watch my Taiwanese show, Love me or Leave Me. ( I did not finish seeing it because Hulu started acting up. I started watching Temptation of a Wife.)

Plans for next week

Finishing two books this week makes me want to finish more books. Strange Addiction is back. I want to read something that corresponds to the commercials on there. There are 12 commercials since there are two episodes. That is 120 pages if I read ten pages each commercial break. Honestly, I have a feeling that my plans are not going to work out. I feel like a reading slump is coming along. That is going to be so fun.

Bookish Week 2/3-9

Main Read

Hunchback of Notre Dame

Updating the Queue ( I have been misspelling it for weeks now)

  • Sacajawea- good but feels like something is missing. I think it is feels rushed, the author does not make me care about the characters, and a lot of things happen that make no sense. I am excusing all of this because the Lewis and Clark part is going to be long. I hope that is why the author is not spending that much time making me relate to the characters. All was okayish, interesting at times.Then something happened that made me hate every character except Sacajawea. I’m going to be honest do not get creeped out. I hope Lucy from Elfien Lied or Carrie  comes and just annihilates the entire village leaving Sacajawea by herself. I thought about it. It is getting dropped. 100 pages and no character investment in a 1300ish book. I just cannot stop thinking about what was I feeling 100 pages into Lonesome Dove, Roots, Les Mis, or even Pillars of the Earth. I have so many books on my shelf. I don’t have time to question should I, shouldn’t I. It probably would have been better as a non-fiction book. That was the only interesting part of the book the customs and stuff.
  • Snow Falling on Cedars- I do not like how it is written.
  • Life of Pi- I don’t like how it is written. So it is put to the side tell next month when the movie comes out on dvd.
  • Tale of Desperaux- I don’t care about the characters so it is dumped.
  • The Secret History of the Pink Carnation- seems like average historical fiction fare. The main characters need something to stand out. Put to the side until further notice.
  • Twentieth Wife- It is really good. The main character seems to get favor easily which is kind of annoying. Put to the side until further notice.
  • Hunchback of Notre Dame (THOND) – awesome. I somehow always amazed at the readability and action in classics. Victor Hugo, I love your books but please stop doing entire chapters about the architecture of France.
  • Me Talk Pretty One Day-okay. Not a memoire person so that might be it. Put off to the side.
  • A Dark Thin Line- good prologue. I felt like I was missing something. I realized it is part of a series.Put off to the side until get first book.
  • Vampire Lestat- Its cool. I think I need to commit to read instead of reading it here and there to get the enjoyment out of it.
  • Anna Karenina – Really good. I find myself reading it even though I am supposed to be taking a break from it.
  • Sultans Wife-okay. It probably suffers from me starting 4 other historical fiction novels. Put down for later.

Random Thoughts/Phases

  1. How many books can I finish in a month? I had this brilliant (and by that I mean was going to fail before it got started) idea of pick 15 books to read a little bit of everyday. So that I could read at the least 11 books a month. That would be 122 books at the least at the end of this year. The main problem is that I felt pressured first of all. Second reading  a little bit of 15 books could make up my entire day. Thirdly, I just did not feel like it after picking 7 or 8 books.
  2. I looked at my reading number in 2011, to see if I am behind or head of myself in books finished. I am actually on track which makes me laugh. I need to chill it out with worrying if I am behind.
  3. Is this what ya readers think all adult literature is like? ( in response to trying to  reading Life of Pi and Snow Falling on Cedars) I just want to pick up a good adult book and put it into their hands. This is not all of adult literature. We can do better. I can do better.
  4. I am still infuriated/sad by there not being enough people of color in historical fiction.

Bookhaul: 25 books, do not worry. This book haul has made me realize I have been being too nice with a lot of these books. It is time to drop some books like there is no tomorrow.

Plans for next week

I am going to finish Pope Joan and Balzac and the little chinese mistress.  I have only under 200 pages left for these books. I’ll listen to Anna Karenina on audiobook. So that means Hunchback of Notre Dame is probably going to be put down until next week.

Bookhaul 2/8/13

My blog decided not to show most of the pictures.

Historical Fiction 
  Native Americans
Even though just yesterday I was thinking  that I do not like Native American stories. I just feel that I need to give Native American stories another chance.

Let the Drum Speak by Linda Lay Shuler- This one is apart of another series.

And in usual fashion I did not find the first book in either of the series.

Latin American

Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros

 Spain

The Time In Between by Maria Duenas

England

Jasmine Nights by Julia Gregson

Italy

The Wedding Officer by Anthony Capella

China

Shanghai Girls by Lisa See- To find this book after going on my rant about historical fiction is pretty nice.
Authors Liked in Past
Beauty’s Punishment by Anne Rice.-I just realized that my cover is very naughty. This cover is the clean version. I’m not probably ever going to read this. I want to collect all of Anne Rice books.

Late Child by Larry Mcmurty-turns out it is a sequel

One Piece volume 3 by Eiichiro Oda – I need to find more manga to read.

Switchcraft by Mary Castillo  – I did not realize until later this is by an author I read before. I hope it is good. A lot (at least the ones I have read so far)  of the body switching books are okay at best.

Mystery

 Blood On The Vine by Jessica Fletcher and DonaId Bain-(written based on off of  Murder She Wrote) read a book in the series I think last year. It was okay. I hope this one is better.

Anatomy of Murder by Imogen Robertson- I did not realize until I got home that it is an arc. The book was to be release last year on February 20th. It would be awesome to read this book before it reaches its first year anniversary. I probably won’t though. I need to take a long break from historical fiction. Oh, wait turns out it is a sequel also.

Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell- apart of a series that I do not have the first of. These sequels and series are killing me.

Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews

Fantasy

Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley- This book is nicely designed. I’m going to be honest. I do not think I will like this book. It seems to be about popularity and school. I’m completely not into that. I like the book design. Yeah, I only got this book for the design.

Little Women and Werewolves by Louisa May Alcott and Porter Grand

Special Interest

All Things Bright and Beautiful by James Herriot – Animals are awesome!

Gypsy Lady by Shirlee Busbee – turns out she is not a gypsy. So that interest will not be fulfilled.

Action

The Town by Chuck Hogan

Fools Die by Mario Puzo

Depressing?

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards

Why isn’t there a gisaeng?

I do not know if I have already said this but I love asian culture and  historical fiction. One of my hobbies is looking at asian dramas, specifically Korean. One day after watching an awesome historical korean drama, I had a thought. It would be awesome to read about a gisaeng, a more or less korean geisha.

So I went on google and excitedly looked up gisaeng. What I found made me mad and sad. It sad because asian dramas and culture shows so much more. There is an entire place that is not getting reported on. It makes me so mad because I know for a fact that Korea has so much rich culture. To all historical fiction authors we know that you have all the English families covered can we move on now. I like historical fiction set in England but to realize that is ALL there really is to the historical fiction genre is very annoying/boring.

My Historical Fiction Wishlist

  • Korea ( with a gisaeng would be nice )
  • African America that is not slavery or civil rights movement
  • Africa
  • Anywhere in South America
  • Asia in general really
  •  African-Americans in foreign countries ( like France)
  • Poc in foreign countries
  •  Anywhere outside of America ( that has nothing to do with world wars)
  • Exception: native americans,  it can be in america but just not dealing with any of the world wars, maybe showing the history of a race that is not the average players

Here are some sites if you are like me and have a historical fiction wish list. If you have a historical wish list please comment or post it.

Bookish Week 1/27-2/2

Finished This Week

Roots  – The beginning was beautiful. Then as the story went on the beauty kept fading. It is still powerful. I just find myself not feeling that sad or emotion toward it now.

Bookhaul

  • Our Old World Background (inherited it from my great-grandfather)

Updating Que

    • Anna Karenina– putting down for a while. Not feeling it right now.
    • Exiles (Ruins of Ambrai)-  the work that the author put into creating the world is cool ( graphs and stuff in the back of book) but feels wasted because… feels like style over substance,characters are not built ( do not understand why characters did what they did), and still don’t exactly understand the world. I thought of other fantasy books that I’ve read so far that did/does it better. Verdict: DUMP. Overall it just felt like nothing was happening.
    • Pope Joan– really good but not on the level of when it first began.The annoying love took the magic out of the book.
    • World Without End–  the problems with putting books down for a long time and picking them back up. It is really good so far but I do not remember exactly who every character is and their story.
    • King Arthur and His Knights -DUMP maybe. I want to get another edition that is not confusing.
    • Courting Trouble –putting it down because it is romance. It is good. I just want the building of the romance to be better.
    • Alyzon Whitestarr– putting down because it is ya. It is actually not bad but I am taking a break from ya for a long time.
    • Before I go to sleep– good so far. I kind of want it to be a mystery novel but it is a psychological thriller.
    • Hunchback of Notre Dame– Victor Hugo’s birthday is on February 26th so I’m hoping to finish it by that date. I’m always surprised by how easy it is to get into most classic books. I listened to the first two chapters which made the book feel disjointed. I’m going to have to read this book for the most part. I do not want to do the same thing I did with Les Miserables.
    • Mythology by Edith Hamition- all the awesome supernatural creatures and gods. Awesome!
    • A Game of Thrones (AGOT) -read some more still not into it. I will put it down for a while again. I wanted to finish it before Game of Thrones Season 3 comes out but that does not seem like it is going to happen now.

Random Realizations

  1. I have been reading a lot of historical fiction.
  2. The 100 book challenge was not the only factor in my reading all the time versus doing any other hobbies. I am not all that into my other hobbies right now. This week there were so many people who came over to my house so I could not get on the computer and watch my Korean dramas. So the only thing I could do most of the time is read.
  3. I need to read more nonfiction
  4. I have so many books. First, when my mom helped me organize my room.  She had to help me find places to put my books. I only have two shelves ( a small one and a tall one). Second, when my shelves on my tall bookcase were about to break.

341: Roots

When I read the book I did not look at the synopsis.  All knew about it was from what  I remembered from the miniseries.I chose not to put the synopsis because I don’t like it. I feel that for one thing it is too long. In addition it takes away from the ending of the story.

Even before starting Roots  I knew about the plagiarism in general terms. When I finished it so many things popped up.plagarism. forgery. didn’t write the book. The story was really discredited.
I should hate this story now. But I do not.

 Review

The Good   The strongest point in the story is when it is with Kunta Kinte. That is when I loved the book. The setting of historical Africa was interesting. I felt like I was there. I cared about every character in the village. I was so invested in the story. I was invested with Kunta Kinte because of seeing him grow from a baby.  Something that really surprised me is that is not just a slave story. There were so many topics that could be  and need to be discussed such as how Americans view Africa. The Ending was emotionally satisfying. I read this book in a month. Yes, I read this book for an entire month. I have to really like a book to read it for that long. Even books that I really like get put down after a week or two.

The Meh the latter half of the book, specifically the characters. They were not fully fleshed out. That is crazy to say about a 688 page book that it felt rushed but it did.

Final Thoughts What surprises me is that I do not have that much to say about the story. Also, when I think about it now I don’t feel that feeling of instant excitement. I feel not that much towards it now. I have to reminisce about the beginning to feel something.

I’m happy that I finished my first book in my goal to read books with different type of characters. It really opened my eyes and makes me want to read more books with characters who are outside of the norm. I would encourage whoever is reading this to do the same.
