Emma by Jane Austen // ★★★.5 // I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! I’ll probably do a full review soon, but I thought it had some pretty funny moments even though the second volume was far too long.
Inheritance (Inheritance Cycle #4) by Christopher Paolini // ★★★★★ // I’ve finished my re-read of the series! It had been about 6 years since I last read this, and I remembered absolutely nothing save for the ending. It was almost like reading it for the first time again.
Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking // Read in translation: Hygge: de Deense Kunst van het Leven, translated by Barbara Lampe // ★★★★★ // This book encapsulates everything I love in life. Just everything.
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi // Read in translation: Als Adem Lucht Wordt, translated by Anneke Bok // ★★★★★ // I can’t tell you how emotional this auto-biography made me. If you don’t know, this is Paul’s story: a neurosurgeon diagnosed with lung cancer.
I started watching 13 Reasons Why in the past week! I still have about 4 episodes left, and I haven’t read the book, so no spoilers please. This show has definitely made me think about how every action has consequences, but also about how the way we view events and actions is really clouded and subjective.
That was my week! How was yours? Did you read, watch or do anything fun? I’d love to hear about it!
