Hello Flist! Happy Friday!
The week is almost over, and I hope you all are going to have a splendid weekend off!
Before I start with the question of the week, I wanted to share a piece of news. Here, at the International Airport of Fort Lauderdale
, today there was a shooting
and people died! I am glad no one I knew was at the airport today, but the thing scared me more than expected! I live 10 minutes away from the airport, and I can still hear outside a lot of police cars, and ambulances and sirens in general outside! It is scary! And, even if I didn't know anybody there I feel a sense of connection with these people! And I'm taking it almost personally! They caught the guy but I need to know why he did it, and how was it possible that he made it to Gate 2 with a gun! I know none of you on my FList were traveling down in Florida or out of it, so I am pretty sure you're all right! <3
But let's move to a brighter topic. Here's your question(s) I have for you today:
What are you reading at the moment?
What is your favorite genre?
Do you have set your goodreads goal for the year? What is it going to be?
BONUS: Mention 5 books you REALLY enjoyed in 2016
I am now reading Somerset by Leila Meacham
. This is a prequel of the book (I think) made her famous: Roses. It's a very long book and I am very proud of myself for picking it up! It's over 600 pages and I am already 200 pages into it. It's a very easy read... If you are a fan of movies like Gone With The Wind, this might be the book for you!
My favorite genre is probably Historical Fiction, followed by SciFi and Romance (but not the kind of romance books with a Fabio on the Cover... I need more in a book that just romance).
I have set a goodreads goal and I set it again to 30. Last year I ended up reading 40 books! This year I want to read more than that, but I want to start with 30 and see how I go before changing it!
The 3 books I've enjoyed the most this past 2016 were:
- The Gravity of Birds
by Tracy Guzeman
- The Edge of the Earth
by Christina Schwarz
- The Violinist of Venice: A Story of Vivaldi
by Alyssa Palombo
- Beautiful Ruins
by Jess Walter
- Man Walks Into a Room
by Nicole Krauss
I can't wait to read your answers! Stay safe this weekend! Love you guys <3!
