"With bread and margarine in your belly, you go out and look into the shop windows. Everywhere there is food insulting you in huge, wasteful piles; whole dead pigs, baskets of hot loaves, great yellow blocks of butter, strings of sausages, mountains of potatoes, vast gruyère cheeses like grindstones. A sniveling of self pity at yhe sight of so much food. You plan to grab a loaf and run; and you refrain, from pure funk." #bibliophile #bookstagramfeatures #bookish #booknerd #nerd #geek #bookworm #photography #bookphotography #book #subscriptionbox #theimmortalists #photooftheday #booklover #literature #igreads

#book 41 was #TheImmortalists by #ChloeBenjamin I was moved by this story’s sheer power and uniqueness! Four siblings visit a #Gypsy who’s known to predict the day when you die and this event changes their lives forever! Simon, Klara, Daniel and Varys jumped off the pages and wrestled with my heart and brain. #bookstagram #bookclub #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #booksbooksbooks #booklist2018 #bookish #50booksin2018 #lovebooks #reader #reading @kimmersbooks @book

Moje streszczenie "Immortalistów" (kto wpadł na pomysł takiego tłumaczenia?) mogłoby wyglądać tak: rodzeństwo dostaje od szemranej kobiety daty swojej śmierci i robi wszystko, żeby jej przepowiednie się sprawdziły. Wszystkie dramatyczne pytania z okładki, czyli jak przeżyłbyś swoje życie, gdybyś wiedział, kiedy umrzesz, tracą zupełnie sens po przeczytaniu trzech pierwszych historii. Historie najmłodszej dwójki rodzeństwa przepełnione były fatalizmem, który skojarzył mi się z "Małym życiem". I chociaż dostrzegam słabe strony takiego prowadzenia opowieści, to jednak jestem na tyle dużą fanką cierpienia bohaterów (jakkolwiek źle by to nie zabrzmiało), że czytałam te dwie pierwsze części z największym zainteresowaniem. Historia najstarszego brata, choć sama w sobie nie była ani zaskakująco dobra, ani zniechęcająco zła, zakończyła się w tak idiotyczny sposób, że nie miałam już żadnych wątpliwości co do tego, że bohaterowie w jakikolwiek sposób próbują wykorzystać posiadaną wiedzę na swoją korzyść. I ja nie mówię, że to byłby zły pomysł na powieść. Jeśli tylko zostałby poprowadzony w odpowiedni, wiarygodnie psychologicznie sposób - moja mroczna dusza byłaby szczęśliwa. Tymczasem jedynym w miarę wytłumaczalnyn przypadkiem jest Klara, która ewidentnie cierpiała na zaburzenia psychiczne, choć ich wątek został potraktowany zupełnie po macoszemu. W ostatnią część z kolei nie byłam w stanie się zaangażować emocjonalnie, bo choć historia Varyi miała najwięcej sensu, sama bohaterka była dla mnie niewiarygodnie bezbarwna. Całość jest dobrym czytadłem (połowę książki przeczytałam w trakcie jednej podróży autobusem), ale niestety niczym więcej. Bohaterom brakuje racjonalizmu i głębi psychologicznej, a z dramatyzmu ich życia robi się tanią historię, która gdzieś w połowie traci sens. Mamy też jakieś zalążki wątków magicznych, które nie zostają w żaden sposób pociągnięte dalej. To trochę za mało, żeby zaliczyć debiut autorki do udanych. #bookstagram #bookstagrampl #polishbookstagram #polskiebookstagramy #bookphotography #booklove #bookslover #czytambolubie #instabooks #bookstagramtopasja #igreads #takczytam #bibliophile #BDLoves #booklovers #mybookfeatures #theimmortalists

#64: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. I kept seeing this book pop up on friends’ lists, and my curiosity got the best of me. The blurb made it sound interesting, but this story was far more than interesting. It had a depth of emotion that isn’t often found in mainstream fiction. By the time each section concluded, I found myself longing for more, continuing to think about the story of each character. A beautifully crafted novel about life and inevitably death, and what what it means to live authentically. A solid four stars on #goodreads and this is one I’ll recommend to my reader friends.

Hey guys.. Staurday is here finally.. And i hope to complete Immortalists by @chloekbenjamin in the weekend❤️ I started this book for the 3rd Prompt of #bnbreadathon (A book nominated for recent award) and i am so loving it till now.. . . Blurb : Its 1969, and holed up ina grimy tenement building in New York's Lower EAST Side is a travelling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the date they will die. The four Gold children, too young for what they're about to hear, sneak out to learn their fortunes. Such prophecies could be dismissed as trickery and nonsense, yet the Golds bury theirs deep. Over the years that follow they might attempt to ignore, embrace, cheat or defy the 'knowledge' given to them that day - but it will shape the course of their lives forever. . . QOTD : If you knew the date of your death, how would u live your life!? . . ______________________________________________ #unitedbookstagram #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #indianreaders #indianbookstagrammers #indiabookstagram #booksandflowers #bookishcandle #bnbreadathon #bookflatlay #bookstagramista #readersofindia #readersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #allthebooks #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin #historicalfiction

Book thirty of 2018. I’m ashamed to have waited so long to finally read this. I have not tried to savor a book more this year than this one. I adored @chloekbenjamin’s debut novel, and knew this would be great, but I was not prepared for its emotional impact. To say the characters resonated with me would be a gross understatement. This story has depth, heart, intrigue, and teems with originality. A must read. #amreading #chloebenjamin #theimmortalists

When I read a book, I write in it the date I started and the date I finished so that one day when I revisit the book I will remember at what point in my life I read it. From there I can remember the impact it had on me at that time, and compare the impact it will have on me now (the future) as I have grown and changed. I also hope that this will be of value to my future family; kids, grandkids, great grandkids, etc. Does anyone else do this? #bookstagram #reading #theimmortalists #books

I loved this book. I am very late to it and I know lots of people have raved about it. It is definitely worth a read. It tells the story of four young siblings (Simon, Varya, Klara and Daniel) who in 1969 visit a psychic who can predict the date of your death. The book takes each sibling, youngest first, and tells you about their life. They are all so different and as the book tells life stories it covers different periods of history from the 70’s on different topics. I won’t list them as I don’t want to give anything away. #bookstagram #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin

I chose this for my next book club discussion at work, and I found the premise enthralling. Chloe Benjamin tells the story of four kids who go to a fortune teller to reveal their dates of death, and the novel follows them into adulthood. This book poses an interesting question: Do we control our destiny, or is our fate predetermined?

My next read is The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin - kindly lent by @iamsarahkelso! She recommended it but said that it probably wasn’t one that our mum would enjoy 😂 The bookmark was cross stitched myself using an @englishheritage kit! 📖 Drinking: matcha latte protein powder because I’m gymming quite a lot at the moment and it’s SO GOOD 😊 📖 Do you lend your books out to other people or not? 📖 #booktography #bookstagram #bookstagramflatlay #bookstagramuk #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin #matchalatte #bookmark #crossstitch #bookstagrammer #instabook #bookdragon #bookobsessed #igbooks #bibliophile #biblioholic

Currently Reading || I am so excited to be joining in on @the_book_ends_ book club this month! Our first novel is #TheImmortalists written by #ChloeBenjamin and I am diving right in! Its not too late to join in! I have always had a love for reading. My mom and I would sit and read all her yellow hard cover Nancy Drew books when I was younger. Reading is something I always make the time for, and have even recently convinced my husband that the best way to wind down a day is reading a book in bed. While he prefers his #WilburSmith I am open to anything from thrilling murder mysteries to witchy fantasy and a good heart felt romance. What do you reach for when reading?
