      Aw thank you! I feel like the headers are a bit too big but making them medium size makes it too small. Oh well, it works for now. 🙂

      Frog Music seems like a really interesting and different book than ROOM. My interest is piqued, for sure! (Let me know what you think if you end up checking it out!)

  1. Ruby @ Feed Me Books Now says:

    I am in love with both Never Let Me Go and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest so I highly recommend them. :’) If, like me, you’re one of those people who has to read the book first before seeing the movie, both films are brilliant too. 😀

    • kmn04books says:

      Yes! I always read the book before seeing the movie! Good to know they’re good reads and that the movies hold up! I’m hoping to get to them ASAP but I have so much to read! *welp*

    Intrigued by MANY books on this page and have read and can definitely recommend a few (Beautiful Ruins, Americanah). Also, fun fact: Jack Zipes was a professor in the German department at my university (German was one of my programs! He’s a really cool guy so I’m glad to hear you’re reading his translation. Hope it is as captivating as he is. 🙂

    • kmn04books says:

      That’s so cool! I actually have already read a bunch of his translations; I took a Children’s Literature course in university and he’s considered an expert in that field (as I’m sure you know!)

      And yes, I did hear about Phillip Pullman’s version of the Brothers Grimm! I embarrassingly still need to read His Dark Materials…

      • Jen @ Book Scribbles says:

        Very cool. I appreciate this as it’s sometimes hard to find people that get excited about his passion for fairy tales outside of academia…it’s really refreshing to see him mentioned and appreciated here.

        His Dark Materials was one of my favorite book series as a kid…I wholeheartedly recommend.

  3. Jen @ Book Scribbles says:

    Also, did you know Philip Pullman published a new version of the Brothers Grimm as well? Have that on my TBR GoodReads list.

    Never Let Me Go needs to move up drastically!! It is my favourite book, if not ever than at least top 5. Also, do not look up reviews/wikipedia/anything about it. Just read it as is. It will be that much more powerful, otherwise it may get spoiled for you 😛

    • kmn04books says:

      I’ve heard so many good things about it! Happy to hear that you loved it as well. I’m going on vacation next week so I’m hoping I can get a lot of reading done!

  5. Annabel Smith says:

    Lots of good books on your list. I love Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy (I notice you don’t have the last one listed but in some ways that was my favourite), also Beautiful Ruins & The Interestings were some of my favourites from the last year. happy reading!

    • kmn04books says:

      Thanks, Annabel! I don’t own MaddAddam yet because I feel bad buying the third book in a trilogy when I haven’t read the first two yet but it’s definitely one that I hope to get to at some point. I finally read The Interestings this month for my book club and I agree, it was great! Maybe I should read Beautiful Ruins this summer; it seems like it would be a great summer read!

  6. Ariel Price says:

    Lord of the Flies is one of my favorite book ever. One time I read it three times in a week! (I was traveling through Scotland and it was the only book I had… but I still enjoyed it!) And Kazuo Ishiguro is fantastic. If you haven’t read it already, I highly recommend The Remains of the Day.
