Wednesday Shelf Control: Flowers for Algernon

Wednesday Shelf Control is a meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies on a weekly basis.

Hello world, once again!

I think it should be understandable that we, book bloggers, can’t keep up with constantly writing book reviews, especially those who has main jobs, plus those who doesn’t have the reading speed of light, or are still not used to reading books in English*


And that’s when weekly fun memes are coming to help! So from now on, I will have 2 weekly memes which are Top Ten Tuesday, and this, Wednesday Shelf Control. Also, expect weekly Thursday Tags, and The Sunday Posts! Now, moving onto the topic of today’s post…


Today’s featuring book is…

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

How I got it:

I bought an Ebook (Russian translation) from Litres.

When I got it:

January 10th, 2017

Why I want to read it:

I like sci-fi, but I haven’t got a chance to read more of that genre, so I picked up this book after reading multiple reviews from my friends (and they loved it). Plus, the synopsis really remind me of Mikhail Bulgakov’s Heart of a Dog (if you haven’t read that, here I’m recommending it to you!), and since I like that book, I believe I can also expect a lot from Flowers for Algernon.


I know this is not a book that have been on my electronic shelf for that long, but it’s been on my TBR list for at least two years, so I think it’s fair enough to mention that book. Because who knows when I finally get to that, considering how many other not even less exciting books I have on my pile!

What do you think of this week’s choice? Have you read it? Did you like it?

See you next week,


Make sure to find me on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Goodreads.

    1. Sometimes I crave something really emotional, so I hope Flowers for Algernon won’t disappoint me here. As for Russian schools, I vaguely remember it was included in our summer reads.


I'd love to hear your opinions!
