Hi dear friends ✨

Todays video is a bit different right ? We’ve never made a book haul until now so we’re very excited to share some of the treasures we’ve accumulated in the last few months…I mean, we have an excuse for buying so many books and that is quarantine TT many libraries around us closed and it was quite boring to read the same books all the time so we refreshed our little home library with lots of new books !! We still haven’t gotten to read all of them but so far everything is more than enjoyable 🙌
I’m very curious to explore new worlds and new stories and definitely can’t wait to share our thoughts on all of these in the future ❤️
Please leave some of your favourite books as recommendations in the comments too ! We’d love to see what kind of books you read and you know,, we might need new excuses to get even more books…so your comments might be helpful !!

Always stay safe and healthy.
Hope you enjoy and as always thank you so so much for watching ❤️
~

Lots of love,

🍋// books and their synopsis

Kim Jiyoung born 1982 by Cho Nam Joo
https://amzn.to/3eHsFVL 
"Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 is the life story of one young woman born at the end of the twentieth century raises questions about endemic misogyny and institutional oppression that are relevant to us all…”

Convenience store woman by Sayaka Murata
https://amzn.to/2VyTBPV 
“Meet Keiko. Keiko is 36 years old. She's never had a boyfriend, and she's been working in the same supermarket for eighteen years. Keiko's family wishes she'd get a proper job. Her friends wonder why she won't get married. But Keiko knows what makes her happy, and she's not going to let anyone come between her and her convenience store…”

Normal people by Sally Rooney
https://amzn.to/3ifOCxc 
"At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He’s popular and well-adjusted, star of the school soccer team while she is lonely, proud, and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her housekeeping job at Marianne’s house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers – one they are determined to conceal…”

Pachinko by Lee Min Jin
https://amzn.to/2NHRKEa 
"Richly told and profoundly moving, Pachinko is a story of love, sacrifice, ambition, and loyalty. From bustling street markets to the halls of Japan's finest universities to the pachinko parlors of the criminal underworld, Lee's complex and passionate characters–strong, stubborn women, devoted sisters and sons, fathers shaken by moral crisis–survive and thrive against the indifferent arc of history.” 

What a time to be alone by Chidera Eggerue
https://amzn.to/2ZlUWe5 
"In What A Time To Be Alone, The Slumflower will be your life guru, confidante and best friend. She'll show you that being alone is not just okay: it's just about the best freaking thing that's ever happened to you. As she says, 'You're bad as hell and you were made with intention.' It's about time you realised.”

To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee
https://amzn.to/3ggYMMt 
"Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behaviour – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature”

The forest of wool and steel by Natsu Miyashita
https://amzn.to/3eLETNh 
“Set in small-town Japan, this warm and mystical story is for the lucky few who have found their calling – and for the rest of us who are still searching. It shows that the road to finding one’s purpose is a winding path, often filled with treacherous doubts and, for those who persevere, astonishing moments of revelation.”

The girl who drank the moon by Kelly Barnhill
https://amzn.to/3dMmH4z 
"Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.”

A little life by Hanya Yanagihara
https://amzn.to/2VuzwtW 
"When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride. Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he'll not only be unable to overcome – but that will define his life forever.”

The book thief by Markus Zusak
https://amzn.to/31tElrh 
"1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier. Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.”

A wrinkle in time by Madeleine L’Engle
https://amzn.to/2ZtTUwO 
"It was a dark and stormy night. 
Out of this wild night, a strange visitor comes to the Murry house and beckons Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure—one that will threaten their lives and our universe.”

Mirai by Mamoru Hosoda
https://amzn.to/2ZkKEuE  (I only found the German version)
"Little Kun isn't too happy about the latest addition to his family. With the arrival of a new baby sister in the house, he worries his parents may not love him as much as they used to…But when a teenage girl shows up and tells Kun that she is his sister from the future, it may be that there's more to this new relationship than Kun ever could've dreamed!”

The time machine by H.G. Wells
https://amzn.to/3igr4bH 
"When the Time Traveller courageously stepped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the year 802,700–and everything has changed. In another, more utopian age, creatures seemed to dwell together in perfect harmony. The Time Traveller thought he could study these marvellous beings–unearth their secret and then return to his own time, until he discovered that his invention, his only avenue of escape, had been stolen.”

Chess story by Stefan Zweig
https://amzn.to/2BWQjyT 
"Travelers by ship from New York to Buenos Aires find that on board with them is the world champion of chess, an arrogant and unfriendly man. They come together to try their skills against him and are soundly defeated. Then a mysterious passenger steps forward to advise them and their fortunes change. How he came to possess his extraordinary grasp of the game of chess and at what cost lie at the heart of Zweig's story.”

Bear town by Fredrik Backman
https://amzn.to/2ZrItW8 
"Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. “

The automobile club of Egypt by Alaa Al Aswany
(Couldn’t find it online, found in a second hand book store) 
"Cairo at the very end of Ottoman rule. Behind the doors of the Automobile Club of Egypt, Egyptian staff attend to the every need of Cairo's European elite – the way they always have done, it seems. But soon the social upheaval out on the street will break its way through the club's gilded doors, and its inhabitants above and below stairs must all confront their choices: to live safely without dignity, or to fight for their rights and risk everything."

Return to the why cafe by John P. Strelecky 
https://amzn.to/2NHThKq 
"The sequel to the #1 Bestseller- The Why Cafe. 
On a random night, along a forgotten road, John's life was forever changed when he wandered into a tiny little place known affectionately as: The Why Cafe. After spending an entire evening there, he walked out with a new perspective about the meaning of life overall, and about his life in particular. To his great surprise, ten years later he suddenly finds himself at the cafe once again. There are more questions on the cafe menu, along with new adventures to be had. And as before, his time at the cafe launches his life in an inspiring and new direction. "
