In June, I’ve finished reading only one book – Zrób sobie raj by Mariusz Szczygieł, Polish Czechophile. July was much better for reading. I read or finished reading 6 books, including comics.
- fantasy/sf – 3 books (1 comic, 1 anthology, 1 novel)
- based on memories – 2 books.
- novel – 1 book.
- India – 2 books (1 comic included).
- Indonesia – 1 book.
- Germany – 1 book.
- Czech/Slovakia – 1 book.
- Argentina – 1 book.
- 2 books by ladies.
- 3 books by gentlemen.
- 1 anthology with ladies/gentlemen’s stories.
I’m quite happy with the diversity on countries/topics. I don’t care about the author, what’s important for me is the plot and topic.
A comic on Indian superheroine. Quite interesting in both plot and the superheroine depiction. I’m sick of the made-in-USA-heroes, it’s not my target. Things like “Devi” are more for me. I bought the 2nd volume lately.
Reread. In English.
Turbulence by Samit Basu
I loved it, and the references to popculture from other countries. Something USA productions lack.
Both titles will be used by me on my lecture on “Indian superheroes” this week on Avangarda 9 convention in Warsaw.
Waktu Aku Sama Mika by Indi
A book you’ve read about already, either from the quote or from mentioning along the film Mika. All book & film related posts are labelled with Waktu Aku Sama Mika tag. And to think, I just recently read the book but haven’t watched the film.
There’ll be more posts on it, because I liked the story, even if it could be labelled for “young adults”. Read it Indonesian, it was on halt for around 2 months.
It was a great read on a difficult topic related to identity and borders in the post Second World War in Europe. Written by German about Poland, Polish and not.
A book that I recommend, even if you don’t like science-fiction.
I have already reviewed it. A short book with two good stories. Nothing special to remember after a month has passed. Nothing in there that would make me wanna read it again in the future.
Did you read any of the books? What do you think of them? Or maybe you would like to read one of those books?
