Recent reads #6

It was a while now that I didn't write a recent reads post, so it’s time to do it. I have been reading some really interesting books, in fact if you visit my goodreads account you would notice that all the books I rated lately have either 4 stars or 5 stars and that’s mainly because I became aware of the books I would enjoy just by the title and the author. it's like I finally found the genre that I prefer, it was a while now that I gave up on a book I started reading which is a good thing, right?

The first book I'm going to start with is Kafka on shore by haruki murakami;

This book introduced me to the surrealist genre, the book follows the story of two characters kafka a fifteen year old boy who runs away from his home and Nakata a man who can speak with cats, every thing that happens in this book is so random, it was like rereading alice in wonderland again, I don't know if there is some deep philosophical explanations to what happens in this book, all I know is that I really enjoyed it, it's now a month that I finished it but I still remember every character on it even the cats Nakata spoke with.

The next books I read were le deuxieme sexe by Simone de Beauvoir and the vagina monologues by Eve Ensler;

When I was looking for books about the feminist movement, those two books would always show up, so I started with them, le deuxieme sexe is actually  described by a lot of people by the feminist bible, I was curious to know why I know now this book is just amazing, it's like a history book written from a woman point of view, it was definitely not an easy read for me, and it made me sad to know how much ignorant I was about women about my own sexe but i'm glad I read it and I'm planning to read the second tome of it,
as for the second book which was the vagina monologues, I don't know what to say about this book, its idea is just genius, the author asked a bunch of women about their gavina, and the answers were sometimes funny others not that much. coming from a country where we get no sex eduction, no informations about our bodies even our moms don't bother to do that. I found this book really interesting we should study it at school, well I know this dream would never come true.

The last books I’m going to talk about are all graphic novels, I LOVE graphic novels I can read them all day long, well if I choose the right ones and this time I did.

La tectonique des plaques by Margaux Motin:  

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by 

A Distant Neighborhood by :

Those were the books I have been reading those couple of months, I really enjoyed every single one of them so much. what have you been reading?

Olhao garden

If you ask a lot of people about their favorite place, the place where they prefer to go when they want to clear their head,  most of them would say the beach, as for me I won’t say the beach I like the beach but not as much as I like the forest, with its trees, flowers and birds, laying down on the grass and just hearing all the sounds around me is the definition of heaven.
Spring is coming soon and I can’t wait for spring break to go with my friends out of the city and enjoy nature but till then the only option I have are gardens, Agadir does have a lot of beautiful gardens compared to other cities but my favorite one would  be olhao.

It’s written in here that this garden opened the 2nd mars 1992

What I do in this garden? I eat, read, and take pictures.
