I’m a little late with this post but ... thanks to my husband (@droman1989) for these books for Valentine’s Day . I’m normally not a big fan of Valentine’s Day but if I can swap out the flowers and teddy bears for books , coffee , Reese’s , and Chinese food than sign me up every single year !!!! • And isn’t it amazing when someone surprises you with books that they think you’ll like. I asked me husband if he was snooping on my Amazon wishlist because I had the Immortalists on there and he swore he didn’t. Ever since I’ve told him it means so much more to me when someone sees book and thinks “oh she’ll like this?” versus me telling them exactly what I want he now makes it a point to pick the books out himself ! • Did anyone else get books this year for Valentine’s Day? at San Leandro, California

The Immortalists by @chloekbenjamin is one of those books that will stick with me for a while. It asks which is better—living or surviving? How should we deal with loss? Four siblings cope with the possible knowledge of their death dates. Anyone who has siblings (I have six) can relate to the invisible strings that pull us together while the frustration at who we become that can pull us apart. I plan on reading this again because I blew through it very quickly on the plane back from Atlanta and I want to simmer in it the next time. It was an absolute delight to read this book. #TheImmortalists #whatimreading #bookstagram #siblingdrama

This past weekend, I was able to scoot off from work a little early and see these two super talented ladies talk about two books I love! @jillsantopolo has a new book out that I can’t wait to dive into. I loved her first adult novel and I’ll definitely be checking out her kids books for my little munchkins. @chloekbenjamin wrote an EPIC story called “The Immortalists” it takes you into another world about the complexity of sibling relationships that I couldn’t get enough of. Thank you @politicsprose for hosting these two lovelies. 📚❤️⭐️ at Politics and Prose Bookstore

N•7/52 En 1969, en un barrio de Nueva York, se rumora la llegada de una adivina que asegura conocer el día de la muerte de las personas. Los hermanos Gold, a pesar de su corta edad, deciden ir y escuchar lo que les depara el futuro. Las profecías narran sus próximas cinco décadas: Simon escapa en busca de amor al San Francisco de los ochenta; Klara, la soñadora, se convierte en una maga en Las Vegas, siempre obsesionada con la delgada línea que separa la realidad de la fantasía; Daniel, busca seguridad como médico militar después de los atentados del 11 de septiembre; finalmente, Varya, la devoradora de libros, se sumerge en una investigación sobre la longevidad, poniendo a prueba la ciencia y la inmortalidad. #currentlyreading 📖🤓📚 Los Inmortales - Chloe Benjamin ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ #onebookoneweek #constantreader #bookworm #bookstagram #books #booklove #bookoftheweek #libros #librosrecomendados #quéleer #bookish #losinmortales #chloebenjamin #📚 #goodreads #reader #readersofinstagram #igreads #igbooks #onebookaweek #booklove #booklover #bookaholic #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #52booksin52weeks #52bookchallenge #nowreading #goodreadschallenge #theimmortalists

Boek 25 van 2019: De onsterfelijken van Chloe Benjamin. . 1969, New York. De broers en zussen Gold krijgen als kind hun sterfdatum te horen van een oude helderziende. Allevier gaan ze hier op een eigen manier mee om. Jongste zoon Simon neemt de impulsieve beslissing om alles achter zich te laten en jaagt de liefde na in San Francisco, de dromerige Klara wordt illusionist in het hysterische Las Vegas, Daniel zoekt zijn zekerheid in het bestaan als legerarts en de sirieuze Varya is vastberaden om als wetenschapper de grenzen van onsterfelijkheid onder de loep te nemen. 🔮 . 'De onsterfelijken' is een verrassend verhaal over de kracht van familiebanden, sterfelijkheid en rouw. Sinds de lovende Engelstalige recensies keek ik erg naar dit boek uit, maar ik had niet verwacht dat het boek me zo in zijn greep zou houden. Het zet je als lezer aan het denken. Wat zou je zelf andeds doen wanneer je weet wanneer jouw sterfdatum is? Zou je het überhaupt willen weten? En wat zijn nu de écht belangrijke dingen in het leven? ✨ . #read #reading #reader #books #bookworm #bookstagram #booksniffer #nerdygirl #instabooks #bibliophile #booksandcoffee #readmore #booksof2019 #igbooks #igreads #boekenwurm #wednesday #wednesdayreads #wednesdaythoughts #winter #introvert #literaryfiction #fiction #historicalfiction #theimmortalists #deonsterfelijken #meulenhoff #chloebenjamin #boeken #lezen

Has anyone read this book? (No spoilers please).... Author Chloe Benjamin was our guest speaker at the Madison Knitter's Guild meeting tonight. She gave a wonderful presentation even though she was recovering from a migraine (can't imagine). This will be the first novel I have read in years. Swipe to see knitting inspired from the cover- a cowl pattern by Caitlin Hunter of @boylandknitworks and a yarn bundle from @quinceandco. #madisonknittersguild #chloebenjamin #theimmortalists #theimmortalistsxquince at Madison, Wisconsin

Even though I didn’t make it to my last #bookclub I did read the book. #theimmortalists asks what is destiny and what is choice. How much does what we are told shape our future? Four kids go to a fortune teller to hear the dates of their deaths and their lives are never the same. #cholebenjamin #fantasy fantasybooks #booknerd #booksbooksbooks #reading #bookstagram #instabooks #bookstagrammer #booklover #bookworm #bookish #kindle #kindlepaperwhite #kindleofinstagram #instakindle

DE ONSTERFELIJKEN - Chloe Benjamin 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Het duurde even, maar eindelijk heb ik dit prachtige boek uit (swipe vooral even naar rechts➡️). Ik weet het, ik weet het: don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Maar in dit geval ben ik blij dat ik het heb gedaan. Het boek gaat over de de 4 kinderen Gold: Daniël, Simon, Klara en Varya. Op jonge leeftijd bezoeken ze een waarzegster, die voorspelt wanneer ze komen te overlijden. Dit brengt natuurlijk de nodige stress op bij de 4 kinderen. Wat zo mooi aan dit boek is, is dat het in vier verhalen verteld is, ieder deel vanaf een ander personage en dat Benjamin deze verschillende personages zo goed heeft geschreven. Zo kan ik mij helemaal inleven in elke broer en zus, ook al zijn ze heel erg verschillend. Ook de band van de familie staat heel erg centraal in dit boek, wat ik erg mooi vind. Waarom dan niet ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️? Ik vond het einde niet zo spectaculair. Het leek wat afgeraffeld hier en daar, en daarom kom ik uit op 4 sterren. Heb jij al De Onsterfelijken gelezen? . . . . . #Bookstagramfeature #Bookstagrammer #Bibliophile #Bookish #Bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #Bookblogger #Bookphotography #Currentlyreading #AmReading #ReadingTime #ILoveBooks #LibraryofBookstagram #BookRecommendations #Booksofinstagram #Instabooks #Igreads #bookstasam_ #booklove #reader #booksarelife #bookcommunity #totalbooknerd #deonsterfelijken #chloebenjamin #theimmortalists #boekstagram #boekenwurm

Just crossed this one off the 2019 list and, oh man, it was excellent!! I loved this story that follows 4 siblings throughout their lives. As children they visit a fortune teller who tells them the exact date of each of their deaths and we see how this experience impacts each of them in their own unique ways. An excellent, excellent read and an easy 5/5 ⭐️. Pick this book up immediately!! • • • • #booksofinstagram #instagrambooks #instagrambookclub #bookstagram #bookwormsunite #fortheloveofreading #loveyourlocallibrary #coquitlamlibrary #theimmortalists at Coquitlam, British Columbia

Die Unsterblichen von Chloe Benjamin war eins der Bücher, die ich im Januar gelesen habe. Dieses Foto ist sogar noch aus dem Januar, ich habe einfach vergessen es dir zu zeigen. Geht ja gar nicht... Das Buch hat mich mit sehr gemischten Gefühlen zurück gelassen, weil es insgesamt recht wenig Handlung hat. Gleichzeitig ist genau das seine Stärke, denn im Vordergrund stehen die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten mit dem Wissen umzugehen, wann man sterben wird. Glücklicherweise ist es nicht ins übernatürliche oder magische Setting abgedriftet, was ich durch die Wahrsagerin zunächst befürchtet hatte. Schön finde ich außerdem die scheinbare Ambivalenz zwischen Titel und Inhalt. In jedem Fall ein Buch, über das ich nur schwer ein finales Urteil schreiben kann. Hast du es bereits gelesen?

I really enjoyed this novel about 4 siblings that see a psychic in their youth who forecasts their date of death. It was interesting to read how each character handled that news. Could they have done anything to have prevented their death or did that knowledge actually hasten their death? It was a terrific and thoughtful family story. #bookstagram #bookstoread #bookworm #bookaholic #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin

What would you do if you knew the date you would die? How might your decisions and how you live your life change? What effect would it have on your psyche? These are just some of the questions Chloe Benjamin explores in her fantastic second novel, “The Immortalists”. Opening in 1960s New York, we meet four siblings age 13-7 who pool their pocket money for a Romney woman who can apparently tell them the date they will die. The book then splits into four sections showing us the years preceding each sibling’s death. Spanning half a century and the full width of the US from the aids hysteria of 1980s San Francisco to 2000s small town suburbia New England and the Iraq war. The central family are Jewish and faith plays a central role (either in its oppressive presence or the guilt in its absence) in the novel; immigration, migration and displacement has a really interesting undertone and adds a deeper layer to this story; and of course death and grief are key, yet it’s strangely not depressing. Benjamin is far more interested in how these people actually live their lives rather than the death itself. The reader is invited to consider whether they made decisions in light of knowing their death date sending them hurtling towards an otherwise escapable fate - two of the characters being almost too obviously fitting into this camp, which some critics have been frustrated by - or was their death pre-destined? As a believer in no spoilers I’ll leave that somewhat vague, but if you have read it I would love to discuss that more! Benjamin’s writing isn’t sensational but it is strong. I really enjoyed the story and it was clearly extremely well researched including incredible detail (without boring you) on the Romney history, the history of magicians and illusionists and anti-ageing genetics research all of which were central to different characters’ stories. In summary: great, easy read that will make you think without making you work too hard. #amiecaitlinrecommends #bookstagram #whatimreading #bookreview #chloebenjamin #theimmortalists #bookworm

Happy Sunday! I still had not shared my TBR list for February, so here it is: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - “The Hound of the Baskervilles” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. ( for the #coffeeandclassicsbookclub) - “The Two Hearts of Eliza Bloom” by Beth Miller (@netgalley ARC). I’ve already finished this one so it shouldn’t be a problem ;). - “The Immortalists”, by Chloe Benjamin. (Currently reading it and loooving it.) - “An American Marriage” by Tayari Jones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That makes my usual four books, but because some of the books I picked up this month are a bit short, I got brave and decided to add a fifth one to the list: “The Fifth Child”, by Doris Lessing. This was not inspired by its title, I promise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apart from these, I’m halfway through “Miss Dalloway” by Virginia Woolf. It’s a very short book but it demands to be read slowly, with attention, so I’m not including it in this list to avoid unnecessary pressure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What have you planned to read this month? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #43reads #bookstagram #booklover #instareads #bookworm #readeveryday #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #bookphotography #bookandshares #bookstafeatures #toberead #februarytbr #booksandflowers #theimmortalists #thefifthchild #thehoundofthebaskerville #thetwoheartsofelizabloom #anamericanmarriage

Initially I was sceptical about this book, but I grew to really like it. The characters had so much depth (possibly too much, especially in the fourth part with the sudden hit of backstory and mental illness that I found slightly unnecessary), but even still, the characters were likeable and intriguing, the story complex and gripping, and I enjoyed the concept of the book and the questions it raised and the thinking it inspired.

One of the only places I like as much as yarn shops is a bookstore (and a cafe, especially when it’s right next to a bookstore). I was so happy to find out #TheImmortalists author @chloekbenjamin was coming into town on her book tour again. I LOVE going to book events. I LOVE listening to authors talk about their passion, their writing process, their characters. It reminds me to get back to my writing when I get buried under knitting, homeschooling, and SAHMing. I’m so excited to dive into this book #TheAnatomyOfDreams. Lucid dreaming? What? That’s my jam (besides aliens, of course) 😎

Having finished the Mistborn Trilogy and feeling a bit lost - my next book up was always going to be tough. I know The Immortalists will be not on the same level, but think it’ll still be quite good? . Spending the weekend in Glasgow with my lovely sister in law and her husband. They’ve been doing some serious work on their new house and have let us stay in the only completed room in the house - their bedroom, before they even stayed there themselves. Such gorgeous people, I am blessed with the best family! . . . #currentread #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin #saturday #weekendaway #glasgow #travel #reading #books #bookblog #bookblogger #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #reader #reading #read #book #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #bookish #review #alwaysreading #lovereading #lovebooks #thisgirlreads

Honrando o "essediafoi" que este perfil carrega no nome: marque aqui um(a) amigo(a) que deveria lhe dar livros de presente. 😊 Na última segunda (4), ganhei esses três de uma amiga que me disse mais ou menos assim: "Só gosto de dar livros para quem eu sei que gosta de ler E QUE VAI LER. Não gosto de dar a quem só vai acumulá-los na estante para se gabar de volumes." Esse foi um presente e tanto, porque há 2 livros bons para leituras de entressafra (@harpercollinsbrasil) + 1 livro de ensaios/artigos/resenhas/etc. de #CSLewis (@thomasnelsonbrasil), que tenho certeza de que contribuirá para o aprimoramento da minha visão de diferentes aspectos de diferentes literaturas. ❤ Ontem à noite, comecei a ler "A outra Sra. Parrish" e preciso confessar: estou na página 281/430 e o livro me parece um completo déjà vu. Não vou dizer com quais obras ele se parece até agora, para não dar spoiler, mas, se minhas expectativas em relação à trama se confirmarem, ele tem muita coisa igual a um outro livro famoso cuja história já virou série igualmente famosa. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Mas chegarei ao fim, porque é leitura vapt-vupt. Independente de qualquer coisa, é massa quando alguém vê livros e pensa em você, né? 😍 #HarperCollins #HarperCollinsBrasil #ThomasNelson #TheImmortalists #OsImortalistas #AOutraSraParrish #TheLastMrsParrish #CriticaLiteraria #literatura #literature #livrosemaislivros #leiamulheres #leiamaismulheres #DesafioMulheresMEM #bookstagram #readingtime #livrosemaislivros #livros #instabooks #instalivros #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookaddiction #bookworms #desafio1livropormes #bookhaul #leiamais #readmore at São Paulo, Brazil

New York, you were a dream. @purlsoho was the most generous, beautiful (!) host, and an inquisitive audience of knitters, readers, and knitter-readers made me feel profoundly honored. (I can only hope my secret plan worked, and a few new knitters headed home from the event with their first project in hand. 🧶) . Swipe to the last pic to see the adorable kits of #pocketposy @purlsoho put together in honor of the cover of #theimmortalists! I nabbed two and you can bet I’ll be whipping up some socks as soon as I touch down in Madison. You can get the same yarn packs online; I’ll link to them in Stories. 🧡 . And now it’s off to D.C., where I’m doing the last of six events with the lovely @jillsantopolo. We’ll be at @politicsprose at 6pm. See you there? ☺️

Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of sharing a meal with my friend @sere_k_nity in NYC. We then walked a few blocks to @purlsoho where we met @chloekbenjamin who’s currently on her paperback book tour for the Immortalists. I even got to see @thenewyorkyear and @b.woolens! Finally, I indulged in a bit of retail therapy — talk about best day ever! • Christine spotted this @uashmama metallic project bag the MOMENT we walked in the door and because there were only two left in stock, we both snagged them. I had plans to mix this Tussock mohair with other yarn in my stash, but now I’m thinking I’ll mix it with this mulberry merino skein I picked to knit the #boyfriendhat • All in all, a wonderful Friday filled with lots of laughs and many, many skeins of glorious yarn!

so many books I’m excited about were released in paperback this week! Loved seeing #TheLineBecomesARiver, #TheFriend, #TheImmortalists, #AStateOfFreedom, #ThreeDaughtersOfEve, and others in @harvardbookstore’s New in Paperback display 🧡 Growing up, my mom forbade hardback books in the house (mainly because they take up more space and our house was always overstuffed with books). The idea is still ingrained in me to some extent, so I always feel indulgent when I buy a hardback, even if it’s cheap and/or used. I’m actually considering re-selling my hardback of #FranciscoCantu’s The Line Becomes a River to buy the paperback—it comes with a new afterword (which I already read in the @nyrbooks), so that’s partially how I’m justifying it, though it’s mainly my desire to have a paperback copy that takes up less space in my overflowing shelves 🙃 Do you see any favorites in this window display? Do you have strong feelings about reading vs. collecting paperback vs. hardback editions of books? #bookish #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #browsing #bookaddict #bibliophile #independentbookstore #bookstore #bookdisplay #weekendreads #paperback #hardback #newbooks #sigridnunez #elifshafak #neelmukherjee #chloebenjamin at Harvard Book Store

*Werbung | Buch wurde zur Verfügung gestellt 🌳🖤🍂 Im Sommer 1969 suchen vier Geschwister im New Yorker East Village eine #wahrsagerin auf, die ihnen den genauen Tag ihres Todes voraussagt. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt ahnen die Kinder noch nicht, dass diese #prophezeiung ihr zukünftiges Leben nachhaltig beeinflussen wird. Als ihr Vater stirbt und die nunmehrigen jungen Erwachsene ein letztes Mal aufeinandertreffen, bevor sie getrennte Wege gehen, wird das Wissen um ihre Todestage noch einmal zum Thema. Denn auch wenn sie jahrelang versucht haben die #vorahnung als Unsinn abzutun, verfolgte sie ihr Sterbedatum bis heute. Im Verlauf der Geschichte werden nun die vier Lebenswege der einzelnen Familienmitglieder erzählt. #chloebenjamin erzählt eine besondere #familiengeschichte, die der Frage nachgeht, wie wir unser Leben gestalten würden, wenn wir wüssten, wann es vorbei ist. Ich fand es sehr interessant zu lesen, wie unterschiedlich die Geschwister mit der Prophezeiung umgehen und welch verschiedenartige Wege sie einschlagen. Nicht alle schenken ihrem vermeintlichen Todesdatum gleichviel Bedeutung, doch je näher es rückt, desto intensiver setzen sie sich mit ihrem Leben auseinander. Unweigerlich denkt man auch darüber nach, wie es wohl wäre, seinen eigenen Todestag zu kennen. Wie würde man sein Leben gestalten? Lebt man bewusster, intensiver, leidenschaftlicher? Versucht man, dem Schicksal ein Schnippchen zu schlagen? Baut man auf Sicherheit, um der Voraussage zu entgehen, oder lebt man frei und risikofreudig um jede Sekunde auszukosten? Ein Roman über #lebenslust und #vergänglichkeit, der nachdenklich stimmt und ein geheimnisvolles Flair versprüht.

Repost from @chloekbenjamin - Today is the paperback publication day for #theimmortalists, which means it’s been a year since the hardcover came into the world and over five years since I started this crazy book. It’s only day two of the #immortalistspaperbacktour and I already feel like I’m talking about myself too much, so instead I want to tell you about the village it takes to bring a book to life—so, so many more people than the author who winds up getting the credit. There’s the agent (my sister @margaretrileyking & the incomparable @wmebooks), the editor (my queen, @sallyjkim), and the publisher (@putnambooks & @penguinrandomhouse, who packed this process with so much verve and heart, I’m still astonished), but just as important are the booksellers and librarians readers trust to lead them right, and of course YOU, dear readers, without whom none of this matters at all. . Today, I’m so thankful. I can only try to live up to the honor of this hubbub by buckling down and doing my best work tomorrow, and all the days afterward.

A clever psychogram set amidst a derelict manor house. Highly recommended to those who liked Eleanor Oliphant and are interested to explore a more literary take on the topic. (Missing in the picture, I already gave this one to a friend.) ~~~ 2. Rupi Kaur: #milkandhoney . This one shook me up and reminded me once again of the power of words. Even the shortest sentences can have a lasting impact 🙌 ~~~ 3. Chloe Benjamin: #TheImmortalists . Clever contemplation on death and living, as well as living on when a loved one passes away. A little too close for comfort this month but I found the novel quite wonderful nevertheless. Benjamin surely knows her craft. A writer to watch out for! ~~~ 4. Various authors: #LiteraryStarbucks . Laughing-out-loud funny. "If you don't get it, you should read more" (that's what they say..) 😂 ~~~ 5. Mariana Leky: #WasManVonHierAusSehenKann . A German bestselling novel that totally lives up to the hype. I cried and laughed and was deeply moved. Definitely my reading highlight of January 💕 . . . 🗣️ Have you read any/all of the above?

Wow! This book is chockful of thought provoking characters and situations. This is our Chicklits bookclub February selection and I’m excited for the discussion. There is so much to talk about! The story begins with 4 siblings, who during their childhood, go to visit a neighborhood fortune teller. They each go in to see her alone and when their turn comes she tells them the day they will die. So then we follow each sibling through their life. To me the fascinating question is how does knowing or “thinking” you know your death date affect how you live? Do you live with abandon or do you live constantly worried about death? Also intriguing is how different each sibling is. If you have children, you know this. Each child is completely unique even though they come from the same parents. I don’t think I appreciate enough how amazing this is. I really enjoyed this book as a whole but there were a few things that happened that I found a little far fetched (parts of Daniel’s story). There is some magical realism involved or at least hinted at so if that bothers you, this may not be the book for you. And there are some explicit sexual situations fairly early on in the book, so if that is a concern you may want to avoid this book as well. But these were not problems for me personally and I absolutely loved the ideas it explored and gave me so much to think about. The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin 7.5/10⭐️ at Louisville, Kentucky

The Immoralists by Chloe Benjamin follows the story of four kids who are told by a psychic medium the day they’re going to die. With each individual given separate dates and ages, Benjamin explores how each person uses the time they have left in this life. It’s set in the Harvey Milk era, during a time where race and sexual orientation was a high target for discrimination, when AIDs didn’t even have a name. As the four kids grow up and try to make the most of their time left, It begs the question; if you had the opportunity to find out the day you’ll die, would you take it? As I’m currently writing a novel about a psychic medium, I was keen to explore how other authors have taken this subject and made it run. Benjamin has eloquently produced a gripping novel while keeping us guessing whether the world is more than what we just see. Are psychics able to predict the future or do their messages influence what we do? But whether their psychic powers are real or not, the message is clear, make the most of every day as none of us are immoralists. And lives which have lasted the longest are not necessarily the most lived. #theimmortalists #chloebenjamin #author #bookreview #authorsofinstagram #psychic #medium #clairvoyant #afterlife @chloekbenjamin
