A short history of tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka

I have been aware of this title for a while, but did not know what it was about. Maybe I was aware because shortlisted for Orange prize or because author based in UK.

I was underwhelmed. Tractors just about only appear in italic sections and you do not have to read italics, right? Still I found it dull. Very colloquial and did not have impact or come to a meaningful conclusion.

Wednesday What I’m reading and Want To Read – Anyone read The Geurnsey literary and potato peel pie?

I still have Tractors in Ukraine by Monica Lwecyca to finish.

I have also started Century Girls by Tessa Dunlop.

Century Girls

I have Tender is the Night by Scot Fitzgerald to read for May book club.

I have also been reading about The Guernsey lottery and potatoes peel pie society which is a book, that is being released as a film in UK on 20th April. Apparently it is written in the form of letters; therefore film will be very different. It sounds interesting, but I do not know if got time to read.

My answers to Belgian Reviewer’s question’s (their answers are below).

What did you recently finish reading?

 Just finished the Life left Behind by Collette Mcbeth. It had two narrative strands one, was a woman who had been attacked in her past and the other was narrative of a women who had been murdered speaking from beyond grave. A thriller about, were they both attacked by same person and who attacked them. I had read it before, but could not remember at the beginning. By end when remembered more was keener to finish and read something new but it is a good book if like the gone girl type of thriller genre.

What are you currently reading?

After reading the Life left behind, I should have gone back to A Short History of tractors in the Ukraine by Marina Lewycka. But I’m a little bored of A short history and had received a new Amazon order. So I started reading All the Breaking waves by Kerry Lonsdale.
What do you think you’ll read next?

At some point soon, I need to go back to Short history of Ukraine because if I do not then I will lose the will and never go back.

I’m going to a book club, the first Tuesday in April forb Harriet Harman’s autobiography A Woman’s work. I have read it but want to refresh memory.

Then book club for May is Tender is the night by F.Scot Fitzgerald. There is pressure on it as if it is good, I may read Great Gatsby, seen as I enjoyed Great Gatsby immersive theatre experience s much that it inspired me to start my blog.
