I am now the VERY proud owner of the entire @backmansk collection thanks to @offtheshelfofficial 😍 After reading and loving Ove, I cannot wait to dive into the rest of this seriously impressive stack! Bonus - I already owned three of these books, so be on the lookout for a giveaway 🎉

Tell me your fave Backman novel! Which should I pick up next?

@thebookend.diner wants to know: If you could have coffee with a character from a book, who would it be? I had some trouble with this one because I tend to want to have coffee with the authors that thought up the characters! Here are some I came up with for my #charactercoffeedate
•
Bookish Life Of Nina Hill, Nina Hill: Obviously we would instantly become best friends. DUH.
•
Before and After, Everyone: I would love to meet everyone in Before and After. Their stories were so fascinating, I would love to get to meet them and hear more about their lives.
•
American Royals, Samantha: One, she is a princess! She also happens to be the fun one. I think she and I might go for a glass of wine instead though….or maybe just straight tequila!
•
Beartown, Maya & Amat: They are easily two of the best characters, plus I really want to give Maya a huge hug.
•
The Escape Room, All of them: Though I would like to be the one behind the camera watching all of this take place while eating popcorn and drinking my coffee (or maybe wine), I’ll stay off the elevator please!

Who would you want to have coffee with?

My final TBR of the year! It features some Asian literature, non-fiction and some highly anticipated reads based on your recommendations such as Beartown and The Bear and the Nightingale! 😄

What's on your TBR this month? Have you read any of these? 📚
If I manage to read five books this month, then I will have reached my 2019 reading goal of 60 books! 🙌

Thankful that there are a couple of challenges this week so I actually have something to post 🤪 Today I’m joining @jordys.book.club & @kraysbookclub for #bookstathankful
___
@beauty_andthebook_ when I actually listen to her book advice and find out she’s right 😂 The Simple Wild and Bear Town! 🙌🏼🥰
.
*not pictured* The whole Pucked series by Helena Hunting was amazing and I blame @nerdybooknurse for making me fall for Hunting’s books! 🏒
.
Thankful for @kraysbookclub & @downtogetthefictionon and #notyomamasbookclub because I probably wouldn’t have read The Kiss Quotient and the BR chats are always 🔥
.
Thankful for book reviews that are legit on the gram. After reading @jordys.book.club review for Necessary People I bought it and ended up loving it 🙌🏼 Twisty and wild which is exactly what I like.
.
I definitely would not have read the After series if it wasn’t for @jennsbookvibes and her excitement over the books. So trashy and good 💯
.
Last but not least @suspensethrill @novelgossip & @gareindeedreads for all things SLAUGHTER! They got me to read her Grant County series which was sooo good. I still need to read the last one and I want to also dive into Will Trent.
___
See any favorites?!

Beartown by Fredrik Backman ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Beartown is a small town, it’s also a hockey town. The hopes and dreams of it’s residents fall on the junior ice hockey team. When a violent act rocks the town, no one is left unaffected.
-
In Beartown, Fredrik Backman uses hockey as a motif to explore themes of community, family and tragedy. The novel hinges on a violent event and goes on to explore the social (and legal) impact it has on both individuals and groups. I found it fascinating to read about a community whose lives are so deeply rooted in sport. For me, it was kind of reminiscent of early seasons of One Tree Hill in a way, the sports-based community paired with heavy emotional drama told in a poignant way. I really and truly loved it.
-
It’s kind of a slow build because Backman has a lot of characters to introduce. He does so in little vignettes which I really enjoyed, I mostly listened to this on audiobook so at times I found it a bit tricky to keep track of whose perspective I was reading from but I got back on track quickly. For a book that follows almost an entire town, the characters are vivid and their emotional lives are explored in-depth. It’s definitely a dark novel and at times a difficult read emotionally but for me it was completely worth it. -
You don’t have to love hockey to love this book (I certainly don’t) but you do have to be prepared to go on a journey with these characters. Beartown was gut-wrenching and deeply compelling.

📚 New to you author #bookishbellesjuly19

What book took you the longest to finish?

I don’t remember anymore how I came across A Man Called Ove, but according to GR I listened to audiobook in July 2016, and it became immediately a favorite of mine. I was so enamored with Ove and the story that I told my girlfriends to get the audiobook PRONTO!! I was intrigued by the author, and My Grandmother Asked me to Tell You She’s Sorry only confirmed his amazing talent for storytelling.

And then came Beartown.

It took me TWO years and TWO tries to come to grips with this emotional and thought provoking book. The first time, in 2017 didn’t work out too well for me, but then earlier this year I gave it another try, and as it happens sometimes, the timing was just right. And listening to Us Against You right afterwards was the easiest decision I ever made.

I think the biggest issue I had with Beartown, was that I compared it to Ove, which is such a heartwarming and funny story, and Beartown is the polar opposite. Sometimes, it takes detours for met to get where I want to, but as long as I get there, I’m not complaining - lol.

I’m breaking all the rules with a book pile instead of a stack 🤷🏻‍♀️ I saw so many of the books that I picked in other stacks like Daisy, Alice, Evelyn etc. I loved all of these books!! See any faves?

It looks like I pick up a lot of romance or family dramas when I’m feeling slumpy!

There are quite a new followers here. I cant express how incredible this community is and I love that you are here for my part of #bookstagram. Books have never been just about reading for me. Books truly are for my sanity. Did you read in my bio? I have four children aged 10 and under. I'm in need of sanity in any form I can get.

If you are new, or maybe haven't gathered, I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's quite possible that if I could I would buy a copy for every single follower here, I would. It's my press for all any and all book recommendations.

Backman has a way to feed me that dose of sanity I crave when I enter into the town of Beartown. Have you read any Backman? Have you entered Beartown? Do you have plans to? If not, I'm sure I can find a way to talk you into it. My gal pals @words.n.wonders and @bookishbaker_ are both reading it for the first time. You could join them!

Happy Saturday folks! I was tagged by @emmas.biblio.treasures to share a #bookstagrammademedoit stack. This is just a selection. Not pictured are The Flatshare and Daisy Jones and the Six which are on my Kindle.
When I joined bookstagram I had no idea I would be so influenced by others but I love seeing all your books and reviews and have found so many new books and authors to read. 
I have to say all these books are great and I'm so glad to have read them and Station Eleven and Bear Town are now all time favourites.
I'd love to hear what books you've discovered thanks to bookstagram 💓

I love to share my books! Here is just a small stack of some of my favorite reads from 2019. 
I manage a small bank and periodically I’ll bring in a stack of books for my tellers to go through and pick out one to borrow. If it’s a really good one, we all take turns reading it. We did this No Exit and A Man Called Ove.

One month left on the book bracket!!!
. . . .
I didn't realize how hard this would be! Picking my favorite of each month has been ok, with only a couple of months that were tough. But oh man, pitting the books against each other when they're so different is tricky! Especially without any sort of comparison standards! 😂
. . . . 
I am going to need a REALLY good book to beat out #miraclecreek, which I'm not convinced will happen. However, both #wellmet and #beartown were very unexpectedly great contenders, so it could get interesting!
. . . . 
I don't really have a planned TBR, so if you have a worthy opponent title, let me know! I'm hoping it's a warm colored cover so it balances out the page 😂

The lovely @3starsandup and @readwithangie  came up with a cool challenge! I can’t pronounce the name, but #tituluminvenio is what they came up with when you find the name of your book within the book! How cool is that?! •
•
I’m currently reading Beartown, and basically every single page mentions the name of this small town 😆🙌🏻
•
•
Such a fun challenge! I always love finding the title of the book within the actual pages! Also when you get to the point in the book where the title makes sense is a pretty cool feeling too. 😎

I just made Rice Krispies with my fav girl I’m babysitting, and now we are watching Harry Potter and reading! ⚡️📚🥰 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookchallenge #titleofbookinthebook #beartown #hockey #smalltown #bookish #bookcommunity #currentread #reading #readreadread #readersofinstagram #canadiangirlsread #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookworm #booknerd #bookobsessed #bookaholic #bibliomania #bibliophile

Travelling solo and digging straight into this one. Loving it so far - it’s written in a way that makes me want to savor every every word, every sentence, one morsel at a time. •

I’m a mess today 😅
I’m thinking of all my favorite books today, and although Bear Town is up there, I’m not sure if it’s my all time favorite.
I kind of want to make a list of all my favorite books and narrow it down to one winner.
When someone asks what your favorite book is, which do you say?

Br.9 Najbolji muški lik 2/2⠀
U ovom savršenstvu Fredrika Backmana teško je izdvojiti glavni lik. Svakome se liku posvetio jednako i svaki lik Medvedgrada priči doprinosi podjednako. Ali jedan je ipak mrvicu posebniji, a to je Benji. Divlji, neuhvatljivi, tajanstveni i mračni tinejdžer, zvijezda svoga hokejaškog kluba, slamatelj ženskih srdaca i apsolutno nezaboravan lik. Od svih Backmanovih likova, a to su vrhunski likovi kao Ove, bakica, Elsa, Britt-Marie, Benjiju dajem mjesto na karakternom tronu jer on je lik koji je ostavio najjači utisak. ⠀
⠀
Slažete li se sa mnom? Znam jednu koja se sigurno slaže, jel' da, @tutus_and_sons ?⠀

For me, that book is ‘Beartown’. Honestly I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet...probably my mile long TBR 🤷‍♀️⁣
⁣
I have wanted to read ‘Beartown’ since it was released and still haven’t picked it up. I am considering trying to read it this month but am currently buried under ARC’s so I’m not sure. ⁣

Have you read this one yet? What did you think? ⁣

I figured I might as well stick with my tradition and be late to my wrap up/goals posts for the month 🤷🏼‍♀️
•
This might look like a sad wrap up pile because you know .. it’s not a pile. But I have to say it was great. My reading brain just wasn’t active so I got to just slowly savour this read for the month of November and I loved it. •
Normally I rate all the books that’s I have read for the month so of course I will do that still but I’ll do a little review here too. •
BEARTOWN
•
I had heard only great things about this book prior to picking it but but I never actually heard what it was about. I went in blind and was very pleasantly surprised. This book starts out with a BANG (literally you will see) and I was hooked! I will say there was a few slower chapters at the beginning after the first one because they were giving us a back story. Once I understood that I appreciated the wealth of information on a sport I already enjoy .. hockey. •
This book will surprise you and keep you intrigued and on your toes. It is emotional and a good for anyone read. It impressively hits on a lot of modern day issues and deals will them beautifully. I recommend this book to both readers and non readers, both men and women. •
4.5/5 —————————————————————-

My final TBR of the year! It features some Asian literature, non-fiction and some highly anticipated reads based on your recommendations such as Beartown and The Bear and the Nightingale! 😄
.
What's on your TBR this month? Have you read any of these? 📚
If I manage to read five books this month, then I will have reached my 2019 reading goal of 60 books! 🙌

Have I told you that I am the biggest mood reader?✨⠀
.⠀
Well if I haven’t made it clear before, I am now! I am the biggest mood reader! I’ve been meaning to read the sequel to ‘Beartown’ by Fredrik Backman for forever. It’s literally been over six months since I read the firs one and it completely completely crushed my heart and I absolutely loved it. But even if I loved it I haven’t been in a mood to read the sequel and I don’t know why... Am I interested to see where the story goes? Yes! Am I ready to have my heart crushed again? Yes! So why am I not reading it? We don’t know...⠀
.⠀
Speaking of things that crushed my heart, I read ‘All Your Perfects’ by Colleen Hoover today... It was such a emotional book. Such an important story and I really loved the way it was written. Even though I had a few problems with it, I still really loved it and ended up giving it a 4.5 star rating. Like I said the subject is so important in my opinion and it’s not shown enough so I would highly recommend you checking it out! ⠀

QOTD: Are you a mood reader or can you stick to TBR? ✨
