The Postman Knock #30 or I Am Back!

Hello, peeps!
I'm back at last and trying to sort everything out - not enough time in the day.
How have you been?
I admit I didn't even look at my Google Reader or Twitter while I was away, it was a whirlwind.
Photos are not ready yet, because most of them were done by our friend Ben, who needs to send them to us first...

Thanks to all my friends for fantastic guest posts and reviews, I don't know what I would have done otherwise :) I'm in your debt, peeps.

Here is what I'VE READ:


10 books is pretty moderate, considering I had 3 weeks, right? In my defense I'll say that me and the hubby also watched 1st season of Supernatural :)
THE AGE OF ICE is a very long and pretty epic book about a man who lives through 3+ centuries, his  adventures, loss of everyone he loves and a truly fascinating retelling of major historical events. I really enjoyed this book. THE DEADLY SISTERHOOD disappointed me, mainly because it failed to create some sort of structure out of the lives described in it. It also failed to engage and was too chaotic for my liking. THE AGE OF MIRACLES is an amazing and very touching read. I'm glad Blodeuedd brought my attention to it. THE BOOK OF MADNESS AND CURES is lush, quirky read full of charming little details. If you are easily bored, this is not for you, but I loved it. A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL was way better than I expected, and I actually quite enjoyed its intense gripping plot. BLOOD AND SAND was pure guilty pleasure on my behalf, and of course I loved it. BORN OF ILLUSION is refreshing. I don't know about anyone else, but hours flew by when I was reading it. On the other hand, LEXICON like the previous book of Max Barry I've read, blew my mind. He gives you such massive food for thought, it's impossible not to love his writing. UGLIES was meh. I pretty much skimmed it, and I blame the oversaturation of the book market with exactly the same type of YA dystopia. At last, THE GATHERING DARK left me torn. I loved the world-building, but  disliked an unnecessary secondary love interest. Still, I'll be reading book #2 for sure.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
