Fight Club - Chuck Palahniuk

Bloody hell ! How could Mr. Palahniuk write something like this? How the hell  does his brain work ? Compilations of three different plots on one page are totally normal for this book. I admire you Mr. Palahniuk, not only for the writing but also for the super weird plot. 
It aint my favourite book, I will not read it again but I admit that it indeed is a masterpiece.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson

Super cute! This book is fantastic summer reading, really fast not difficult at all. I loved the energy that Alan spreads around him. The main character is flawless. If anyone needs to cheer up just grab these 400 pages of positivity.

Closely watched trains - Bohumil Hrabal

…Miloši, I fell in love….
So childish so naive…. like a dream. 
I love the perfect combination of humour and tragedy in this book. 
It filled me with joy !!

Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov

Now, this is hard…..
This book gave me goose bumps and also made me happy and worm.
On one hand you have to disapprove the sick “realationship”, but on the other….it is tale of  obsessive Love. Love so strong, that it made man go mad. YES it really is beautiful even though it shouldn´t.
Congrats Mr. Nabokov!! You wrote such a wonderfully beautiful masterpiece that no one cares about the weird-little girl molesting part!

PS: And of course, WHAT AN OPENING LINE/PARAGRAPH!!

IT - Alexa Chung

I don’t know what to say. Well it’s awesome to learn stuff about someone’s life and stuff they adore. PLUS when this person is Alexa Chung it is supposed to be triple awesome BUT, I have to say, I expected more… much more.
Sorry Alexa but, I could write book like this in a week…………..ofcourse if I got chance to do so.
