What I'm Reading Right Now (14)


Quote of the day:
My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence. 
-Edith Sitwell 


I am done with the Archer series for now. Moving on, my current book is by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. If he sounds familiar its because I started reading another book of his in March, although I never did finish the 800 pages to the end, I hope to get back to it at a later date.

This current book is titled 'Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage'. It centers around Tsukuru Tazaki who has four best friends at school. One day they announce that they didn't want to see him or talk to him again. And since that day, Tsukuru, he floats through life, seeking meaning and acceptance. It's a haunting tale, dark, sensual and even poetic at times, and with detailed characters. It dwells on relationships and emotions. A brilliant piece of work, and its a great read so far.


What book are you reading, or what's on your reading list?

  4. Love the quote. I crave silence at times, and always appreciate quiet. The book you are reading sounds fascinating.

  5. What a wonderfully dark tale. I'm not reading anything right now - in between books - but this one certainly sounds worth checking out.

  6. I'm on page 332 of an 831 page tome...The Familiar by Mark Danielewski. Not sure what it's about besides going to get a medical dog for their daughter who is an epileptic but it's more like channel surfing on TV during the commercials with all these other story lines in the mix. and the main story lines can have 5 sets of parentheses in a single sentence. it's like all the chatter that goes on in your head while you are talking is in there too. crazy and I don't know why I am still reading it.

  15. Someone insisted that I read Murakami. I haven't read his books yet, but I'd like to.

  16. Love the quote at the start of this post - last but not least because I have a soft spot for the Sitwell family. One of my favourite houses in one of my favurite places is their house in Scarborough, now a museum.

    My reading is still the same as last week, with the addition of a paperback given to me by my mother-in-law while I was on holiday. So, I am parallel-reading three books at the moment, and still have not written the review for the last one I finished.

  17. This book sounds interesting and a take on some bullying and how one copes with it. Being ignored and dropped is a form of bullying. I just finished a book by Peter Bogdonovich about all the famous people he has met. I am now catching up on my archeology magazines

I know u like 2 c things rosy and positive, B ... sooo ... just sayin, just sayin ... hmmm? ... Love, cat.

  23. Makes me wonder why his friends rejected him, but so often in life we never know the whys. I hope he realized that those people weren't really friends in the first place. :)

  26. Are you finding this book sad? It sounds like it, but I hope you make it through it. I am read the Girl in the Spider's Web, which is the newest book in the Millennium trilogy, but this one by a new author since the author of the first 3 books has since passed away.

  29. I will read almost anything. Right now I am reading a novel and re-reading a fantasy series. I like biographies the most. Of course there are the classics and fluffy little easy-to-read books. Put a book in front of me and I will probably read it.

    ReplyDelete

    my favourite pastime is silence but my world is never silent no matter how hard i want it to be :)

  48. I love that quote, but generally, I love most quotes. I'm reading another MG, The Funeral Director's Son. I don't think I'll have any trouble finishing its 144 pages.

  49. Sounds interesting--have you read Endo's "Deep River" (Another japanese novel?)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Currently reading 2 books at once, which is unlike me - Purpose driven life and Mahatma Ghandi's Bio. I had to do 2 in 1 because Purpose driven life forces you to spread the reading over 40 days.

    Anything for the Boys?
