Am I actually posting something else besides reviews on this blog for once? Well, I’m shook. I shook myself. I am shooketh.
Anyway – I came across this Goodreads tag over at Emma’s blog @emmareadstoomuch and thought it looked fun so I decided to do it! I joined Goodreads back in 2011, was kind of active for a while, and then academia took over, causing me to abandon reading – and the site – for ages. I think I only started properly updating my account again last year. For me, Goodreads is mostly a place where I can keep track of what I’ve read and what I want to read. I’m not active in the sense that I join in on discussions or post reviews, I just lurk and like and add, but I often check my shelves and I also like to keep up with what others are reading.
Alright, so enough rambling – here we go!

A week or so ago I made a short post on Instagram with books that in some way are about books or a specific book. Also, in my reading experience, chances are that a book about books will use the story-within-a story technique to some degree. I had a look through my shelves and picked a handful of books that I think meet these two criteria. Some of these are really great books as well, so I figured I’d write all of this up more thoroughly here!

The lovely Ally @the.imperfect.library tagged me over at Instagram for the #midyearbookfreakouttag, and I also saw that Bill @ Kenyanlibrary made an awesome summary with this tag last month! I liked the questions and thought it made a really nice little summary of my reads so far, so I figured I’d make a post on the blog too. I’m not tagging anyone on here right now, but if you see this and want to do it then please feel free!

The longlist for the Man Booker International Prize 2017 was announced last week and I’ve been looking into the books that made it on there. I have to admit that I’ve usually not paid a lot of attention to the Booker Prize (or all that many other prizes honestly). Little over a year ago I also wasn’t reading as much and as widely as I do now, so that probably has a lot to do with it as well. But since reading (and really loving) Han Kang’s “The Vegetarian” last year, which was the 2016 international winner, I made a mental note to make sure I properly check it out this year!
I probably won’t be reading everything on the longlist, but I’ve listed some books below that definitely have caught my attention and that I would love to read soon.
