Day 4: Beyond the Borders + Giveaway!

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

"A reader lives a thousand lives." This quote is so true, and it's been proven time and time again, given that there have been so many stories written that have transported me to countless worlds. From creative characters, settings, themes, plot lines, to the overall feel and atmosphere of a book... they all made me have the ability to step into somebody else's life, somebody else's world, somebody else's shoes.

Books That Transported Me Into A Different World/Culture
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosselini - a familial story set during many periods from the fall of Afghanistan's monarchy all the way to the rise of the Taliban regime. 
  • Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum - offers a different perspective of a realistic character about her life in Germany during World War II. 
  • A Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie - gorgeous writing about a Native American teenage boy growing up in an all white high school. 
A Book That Transported Me Into a Fantasy World
I can easily list the world of Harry Potter here as well as LOTR, but I won't because that's kind of a given. Instead, I want to mention a book that is fairly well-known, but also strangely underrated, and that is The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. There is something seriously twisted and creepy about this book, and the world that the author portrayed is familiar (fairy tale retelling), yet such a foreign place at the same time. And how the author writes... fantastic and brilliant!

Latest Book That Made Me Step Into Someone Else's Shoes
There have been many books that made me see different perspectives and worldviews that it's a bit hard to come up with a list. I will name the last book though that made me experience the life of a different human being, and the book that gave me that opportunity was Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. I absolutely love and appreciate the outdoors, and one of my favorite things to do when/if I get the chance is to explore different National Parks. But the man that this book is about is totally beyond me and any adventurous person I have ever known.
The non fiction book is written by a writer and mountaineer, primarily known for his stories about the outdoors, and covers Chris McCandless' venture alone to Alaska. Chris M. gave everything away and left everybody he knew, and went on an adventure, into the wild. I completely immersed myself in this book, even doing additional research on his life outside of this book. I will never truly understand the way this man thought, how his mind worked, and why he made certain decisions, but it was a very surreal and interesting experience to hear about his story.

Giveaway Time!
The prize is ONE book up to $20 of your choice from Book Depository! I believe this website ships internationally, so anyone is free to enter.

  1. You know, I think you'd enjoy reading either Prayers for the Stolen by Jennifer Clement or Swimming to Elba by Silvia Avallone. Goes along with the theme today: different cultures, stepping into someone else's shoes. Both are tough reads, but powerful.

  5. While I don't see any paranormal in your books on my quick trip over to Goodreads, I would highly recommend the Psy/Changeling series by Nalini Singh. If not I see women's fiction is something you read and I highly recommend the Goddess Anonymous series by Emilie Richards.

  6. If you haven't read Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns, I find it even better than The Kite Runner. It's so good. I also recommend Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abadellah (I think I spelled that right!) which is about a Pakistani Muslim woman who lost her husband in the WTC on 9/11 and deals with all of the anti-Muslim sentiment at the time.

    1. I'm glad to see soneone else liked Thousand Splendid Suns better. I thought I was the only one.

      Another book I'd recommend (and I am jumping on here since I can't see a link to leave my own comment) is Murder on Bamboo Lane by Naomi Hirahara, which features a young female Japanese American bike cop in LA.

  7. Lots of great books have been suggested already, but I'm going to go with The Marrying of Chani Kaufman by Eve Harris. Transported me to a world i didn't know (that of Orthodox Jews) that live in a cities throughout the world.

  8. The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle. Not only is it a really cool horror/thriller YA, it also is set in an Amish village, so teaches you a lot about their culture.

  10. Shameless Self-promotion: Calico (Children of the Shawnee: 1) by Allison Bruning. Many of my readers have remarked how much they have enjoyed being transported into the Shawnee world. The book is told from their perspective. You get to experience the culture of the Shawnee people in the 18th century.

    You could win a copy of Calico from the giveaway on my blog.

  13. I think you might like Cecelia Ahern's A Place Called Here. It's really light hearted and fun and it's about where all the 'missing' things go in the world. Like odd socks, keys... people. It's so original and written beautifully! I highly recommend it. Actually, it's been a few years since I read it, I must read it again soon!

  31. The Book of Lost Things is a fantastic book! I've been meaning to re-visit it, I remember being rather impressed by the story, the way it unfolded, and the themes it touched on.

    One novel that I love and enjoyed and that I think you will enjoy is Hannah Kent's Burial Rites. I can't believe it took me a whole year to get around to the novel, it's absolutely gorgeous and haunting <3 I can't recommend it enough, really, lol

  32. I'm opposite of you. I recently read The Book of Lost Things and I found it extremely boring and I wouldn't have finished it at all, if it weren't for a challenge I was doing so I had to finish it. It took me like a week because I disliked it so much. :(

    I'll recommend to you the two books I listed in my own Beyond the Borders ~ The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

    So, definitely going to recommend These Broken Stars, Far From You by Tess Sharpe, The Beginning of Everything, and Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson. These are all very different from one another, so hopefully a. you haven't read them all and b. there is one just for you!

  37. I love anything by Richelle Mead. Her Vampire Academy series was given to me. I've never been a big vampire book reader so I dismissed the series at first but once I sunk my teeth in the book (pun totally intended), I was hooked. It reminds me of Harry Potter because it's a group of teenage friends coming together to battle with the dark forces of the world.

  41. I haven't seen anyone mention The Book of Lost Things in ages! I took it out from the library a few years ago and purchased it as soon as I finished reading it. Loved it, a great grown-up fairy tale.

    I worked in a national park a few summers ago (Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada) and it was a great experience. My family used to visit Jasper a lot when we went camping in the Rockies when I was younger. I would love to visit some of the national parks in the States, especially those along the west coast.

    For a book that transported me to another culture, I recommend The Icarus Girl by Helen Oyeyemi (gothic lit about a young Nigerian-British girl).

  42. One book....hmmm... I think I'll go with Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe - a book I recommend to EVERYONE :)
    It's both LGBT and PoC, and it's one of my all time favorite books. I hope you pick it up (if you haven't read it already...)

  43. If you read young adult at all, I would highly recommend the Pushing the Limits series by Katie McGarry if you have not already read it. Those books had a profound effect on me and they transformed me in a more metaphysical way. The books and scenarios and situations are very, very real and I haven't seen much else like it.

  56. I saw that you had read The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear on Goodreads. I'd highly recommend The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. Patrick Rothfuss recommends it to fans that love his books. I'd also recommend The Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron. It's a great fantasy book about a thief!

  57. Very cool and generous giveaway! I've wanted to read Into the Wild since it was first published, but for some reason I haven't gotten around to it. This might be a weird question, but what time of year do you think is good to read it? I sometimes base my reading selections on seasons. :) ...As far as a suggestion, have you read Lust for Life by Irving Stone? It's fantastic! One of my all-time favorites... historical fiction (well researched and beautifully written) about the life of Vincent van Gogh, based on the letters he wrote to his brother.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I adore The Book of Lost Things! Have you tried his Samuel Johnson vs the Devil books! I highly recommend them, great trilogy. Another book I think you might enjoy is Stiltskin by Andrew Buckley, and Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson.

  64. My rec is probably a little off the beaten path but I'm going to throw it on the table figuratively for you anyway. It has a little of everything fantasy, adventure, romance, suspense. I'm going to say the first in the series although the 2nd is about to come out because this is a series that builds on itself. TimeMasters is the series title Book 1 is subtitled "The Call" author is Geralyn Beauchamp. It is only in ebook at the moment I think but was recently priced at .99 for the ebook. The author also has a Facebook page and a Blog if you want to find out if/when she plans to port the book to print again. There is also more about this series in my Beyond Borders post. bibliophilesretreat [at] gmail

  73. I was looking at your books read for this year, and I think you'd love The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan.

    It's about this man who was frozen in ice about 100 years ago, and then brought back to life with science in our current era. It's one of my favorite books and it's both very scientifically plausible and a great human-psychological story as well.

    Here's my review if you're interested: http://www.hazelleevaughn.com/2013/09/15/review-the-curiousity-by-stephen-p-kiernan/

  80. I don't know if you prefer to read books of one particular genre, age range, etc., but I'm going to take a chance and recommend a few books. The first is The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I've read two outstanding MG books recently that I would recommend for anyone. Both really made me think, far after I'd closed the book. The first is the Junction of Sunshine and Lucky by Holly Schindler; the second is A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd. Then, if you want to be transported to an entirely different reality, try The Others series by Anne Bishop: Written in Red is Book One and Murder of Crows is Book Two. Both are outstanding.

You might like Lev Grossman's books if you haven't read them, about what's kind of like a very adult version of Narnia: The Magicians, The Magician King, and (coming in August) The Magician's Land. (I'm hoping for an ARC of The Magician's Land from NetGalley!)
