Though the last one is not done

I will be selecting my next book because I still haven’t found the time to rewatch the movie for 2:1 seal I got planned for y’all. I am very excited about this book since I found it through my library. The pretty cover grabbed my attention so I glanced it over a bit and decided, yeah this sounds like a good one. It was only later that I discovered that it is very fitting to my blog so I get to share with everyone this awesome read (I hope) since i have already sent the e-book library loan back twice, third time is the charm! It referenced Jane Eyre on the book cover so that’s a reason 5 million and infinity why I have to read it.

Guess what?

Unable to find time during the week to finish my review I instead started re-reading! Go “Everything is Illuminated!” I’ve read it twice and I still greatly prefer the movie but I felt like something not terribly serious so Jewish magical realism it is. In the meantime enjoy some videos from the movie. Maybe I’ll do a two in one review!

Fun fact: did you know that Alex in the movie is played by Eugene Hutz, the lead singer of Gogol Bordello?

How gorgeous is the land of my birth?

Too many choices are paralyzing

I feel like switching up right now. I know I’ve been saying for a month that I want to do Maggie Anton’s book next but last night it dawned on me that last time I went to the library (yes actual physical building that happens to be conveniently two blocks away from my work), I grabbed only books that would be blog appropriate. So there are three (count them three!)books that seem exceptionally promising sitting on my desk right now gathering dust while instead I am reading about George III on my tablet. How am I over-committing myself already? Its only going to be my fifth review.

So…….I shall be choosing amongst the three very different books below (interesting how all the covers feature woman but only in Anton’s book do we actually see a face – must because in the ancient times women were less shy about their faces?). Maybe I’ll review the next one. Maybe I will read for pleasure of it alone.

So it may be I will next find myself in Babylon with Hisdadukh or Istanbul with Hannah amongst the opulence of the Ottoman court. Or perhaps in NYC again with the sequel to Unorthodox.

Next up “Apprentice: A Novel of Love, the Talmud, and Sorcery (Rav Hisda’s Daughter, #1)

This is what I have planned for the blog next. I read “Rashi’s Daughters” series a few years ago and really enjoyed it so when i found out about this series i knew i had to give it a shot. This is history of my people  we are talking here, the time of the birth of Talmud. What fun to come! Who is excited? And maybe after, I re-read “Rashi’s Daughters” and jump forward in time?

Check out this book on Goodreads: Apprentice: A Novel of Love, the Talmud, and Sorcery (Rav Hisda’s Daughter, #1) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13542525-apprentice
