What are you reading this week?

Hi all! I'm just curious about what everyone is reading!! I love checking out books other people are enjoying just to see if it might be my style, too.

Right now, I'm reading a few things:

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

This is another Pride and Prejudice retelling (WHICH I LOVE. I have a whole collection of Jane Austen spinoffs right here if you wanna check them out!!) I've been waiting to be able to get this ebook from my library for weeks, and I finally got it yesterday!! Yay!! I will probably read it all this week.

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

My loan expires on this tomorrow and I just started it so I probably will have to check it out again!!
This is the (fictional, inspired by real stories) story of three different women in different circumstances during World War II. I've really loved it so far, and hope I can check it out again soon so I can finish it this week!!

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

Yeah....this one was on a ton of book lists and I just finally picked it up. It's all about how to clean in a certain way that should last forever if you do it properly. I'm not yet convinced, though. I'll let you know if I think it will work haha. It's definitely an interesting read if you like instructional or non-fiction style writing.

What are you reading? Let's talk in the comments!

@deilig Ooooo I love the intricacies of spy related books usually :) I'll look it up!!!
@ValerieOrozco Cool! Thanks :D
@timeturnerjones Yeah lol the first book is called the 5th wave.
It was good and it needs to be read slow as not to get confused on who side everyone is. The first book actually was made into a movie.
@deilig I think I've seen those in the store but never read them! How is it?

3 Korean Authors To Add To Your Reading List
I recently made a video about Haruki Murakami, and a few of oyu asked about some Korean authors you might like. Here are 3 and a half suggestions First is Kyungsook Shin, who I haven't read yet. She wronte "Please Look After Mom" which was a huge success internationally. She has had some scandals surrounding her though, because she plagarized a bit of her work from other authors... Now onto the authors I HAVE read! 1. Han Kang Most recently known for The Vegetarian, she writes in a creepy but realistic style. Everything that happens is believeable which makes it so much scarier. I'm about to read her historical fiction piece, Human Acts! 2. Chang Rae Lee I read On Such A Full Sea sometime last year and really enjoyed it. It takes place in a distopian society and is a really interesting look into how we interact with people around us! 3. Young Ha Kim I adore this author and if you're going to read anything on this list make sure you read Black Flower. It is about the true history of hundreds to thousands of Koreans being brought over to Mexico to essentially be slaves on plantations. Its a part of history I never knew about, and Young Ha Kim explains it in a really fascinating way. Have you read any of these authors?! Here are links to the books if you're interested in picking any of them up^^ Young Ha Kim BLACK FLOWER: http://amzn.to/2mltxHU I Have The Right To Destroy Myself: http://amzn.to/2m1fyGG Han Kang The Vegetarian: http://amzn.to/2lLKvOn Chang Rae Lee On Such A Full Sea: http://amzn.to/2m1jEyQ Kyung Sook Shin Please Look After Mom: http://amzn.to/2m1uXqs
A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
