My first introduction to Kafka was in Prague, Czech Republic. The Head of Franz Kafka is a moving sculpture by David Černý which is 11 meters tall and made of 42 rotating panels. A year later, thanks to The Big Book Box, I received Metamorphosis as part of their January 2021 Anniversary box. Huge shout-out to the @TBB team for including this lovely novella with so many other bookish goodies!
Franz Kafka was a Prague-born and based German-language writer of Jewish origin, one of the most influential and appreciated writers of the 20th century . His work fuses elements of realism and the fantastic. Metamorphosis is one of the finest examples of absurdist fiction. So if this is your first time reading about Kafka, let me point out why this is a must read that can be finished quickly.Continue reading Metamorphosis

Picking up my brushes, painting and filling out my journal with small pieces of floral art has made me feel content.

Before getting my hands on this eBook from Edinburgh Libraries (forever thankful), I have seen rave as well as one-star reviews of this book on Instagram. I own two books by this author – Notes on a Nervous Planet and Reasons to Stay Alive. I would not consider it a complete self-help book, but it is about the author writing his views, thoughts and experiences while dealing with his mental health. Matt Haig is a person who brings forth issues about anxiety, mental breakdown, panic attacks, depression and so on in his books, and The Midnight Library is a fictional story that weaves in all these issues. In this book, we meet Nora Seed, our protagonist who suffers terribly from loneliness.
