Beauties from “Minchanka” talked about their favorite books – these volleyball players have good taste – Girl of the day – Blogs
If Belarusian football continues in spite of everything, then in other sports in our country the situation is different – for example, the volleyball federation stopped domestic competitions in March, and the other day extended pause until April 20.
And the main women’s club in the country has been on hiatus since the end of February – just then ended regular season in the Russian championship. The Belarusians did not have time to go to the knockout rounds – the tournament was also stopped. Club director Alexander Mishin at the end of March, by the way, spoke with great skepticism about the ongoing tournaments in other sports: “I am in favor of suspending [турниры], because all these small-town issues should fade into the background. First of all, there must be people, health and life“, – shared his opinion functionary.
So the volleyball players of “Minchanka” are now probably racking their brains over what to do with the free time that has fallen on them. But part of it clearly goes to reading – at least the girls in club instagram shared their literary preferences with fans. Let’s see what the girls recommend to us – and at the same time on themselves 🙂
Oksana Kovalchuk – “The Master and Margarita” (M. Bulgakov)
This athlete needs no introduction: Oksana Kovalchuk is the captain of the national team of Belarus, “Minchanka” and a real legend of our women’s volleyball. She chose the book to match her status – a mystical classic from Mikhail Bulgakov
Natalia Dumcheva – “Sister Carrie” (T. Dreiser)
Russian diagonal Natalya Dumcheva has been in Minsk recently – since the 2019 season. She made her own literary choice in favor of the work of the writer Theodore Dreiser: but not his super-popular book The Financier, but the American’s debut novel, Sister Carrie, written in 1900. Well – a non-trivial choice from Natalia.
Victoria Panasenko – “Mind of Champions” (D. Afremov)
If her teammates prefer fiction, then the young libero Victoria Panasenko is clearly aimed at books that can help her develop her sports career. In the annotation of Jim Afremov’s book “The Mind of Champions” it is written: “Your main goal is to develop a champion mindset. If you want to show results like the best of the best, you need to think like they are.“.
So this is definitely the right choice from the 23 year old volleyball player!
Olga Bogdanova – “My Life” (A. Duncan)
We are opening yet another genre together with the Russian volleyball player of the “Minchanka” Olga Bogdanova – she recommends us the autobiography of Isadora Duncan. This famous American dancer-innovator, the founder of free dance is known not only for her professional achievements – in addition, she was the wife of the Russian poet Sergei Yesenin. And a crater on Venus is also named after her!
The life story of such a person is definitely worth familiarizing yourself with.
Angelica Borisevich – Flowers for Algeron (D. Keys)
The 24-year-old Belarusian blocker returns us to the world of fiction – her choice settled on the science fiction story “Flowers for Algeron” by Daniel Keyes. This novel, tied to an experiment to increase intelligence, is recognized as a real bestseller – and in 1966 it won the Nebula Award for Best Novel of the Year.
Victoria Sekretova – “The Catcher in the Rye” (J. Salinger)
Another portion of American classics is the story of the American writer Jerome Salinger “The Catcher in the Rye”. In it, on behalf of a 16-year-old boy named Holden, he frankly tells about his heightened perception of American reality and rejection of the general canons and morals of modern society.
This book is probably included in all lists of the best works of the 20th century – so you’ve probably heard of it. And if you haven’t read it yet, then this is perhaps worth fixing – an unambiguous mustard from Victoria Sekretova.
Anastasia Kononovich – “A Thousand Splendid Suns” (H. Hosseini)
The 26-year-old binder invites to pay attention not only to classics, but also to contemporary fiction. “A Thousand Splendid Suns” is the second novel by the Afghan-American writer Choled Hosseini, written in 2007. The book describes two Afghan girls – both are forced to marry, both are going through the horrors of war and the nightmare of personal submission to the will of their spouse and society.
The pain and resentment that has accumulated over the years will launch big metamorphoses in their lives – if the story hooks you, then you can thank the volleyball player for the recommendation 🙂
Anastasia Lopato – Flowers in the Attic (E. Bronte)
Flowers in the Attic is the first book in the Dollangenders series. Its plot starts this family saga and contains extremely obscene things in the form of an incest theme – because of this, the book was banned at various times in several American states. Nevertheless, the book became a bestseller just two weeks after its release, selling 40 million copies worldwide.
Non-trivial advice from a 23-year-old Belarusian binder!
Vlada Prosolova – “Three fatal instincts” (A. Kurpatov)
One of the youngest volleyball players of “Minchanka” is the 21-year-old forward Vlada Prosolova. But, despite her young age, the athlete suggests turning to a serious topic – psychology and the problem of neuroses. To help with these difficulties in human life, in her opinion, a book from the famous Russian psychiatrist Andrei Kurpatov can help.
By the way, if the topic worries you, but you are too lazy to read, then you can familiarize yourself with YouTube channel this doctor.
Ekaterina Sokolchik – “45 personality tattoos. The rules of my life “(M. Batyrev)
But the gamer Ekaterina Sokolchik is clearly concerned with the topic of self-development. Her literary advice in this regard is the book of the famous Russian manager Batyrev. “45 personality tattoos. Rules of My Life “- his third work after the super-bestsellers” 45 tattoos of the manager “and” 45 tattoos sold. ”
You will definitely see these books in any bookstore – decide for yourself whether this recommendation is sufficient for you.
Vladyko’s Hope – “Seasons of the Sea” (M. Streksnes)
The book that Nadezhda Vladyko recommends to us is called a fusion of a psychological travel novel and adventure prose with elements of a family saga – and its plot revolves around the pursuit of a huge Greenland shark in the waters of Norway.
By the way, its full name is “Sea Times, or How We Caught a TAKEN shark from a TAKUSEN inflatable boat.” We think this is an unambiguous application for the most unusual recommendation on our list 🙂
Nadezhda Joiner – “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” (R. Kiyosaki)
And Nadezhda Stolyar closes this literary parade from “Minchanka”. Her literary recommendation is also related to self-development – and this book is perhaps the main one in this area. The story “Rich Dad Poor Dad” has been translated into 51 languages and sold in 109 countries around the world, and the New York Times recognized it as the # 1 bestseller. Perhaps the rest of the words will be superfluous – one hundred percent mastrid!
Whose recommendation did you like the most? Or maybe you yourself have something to recommend to the “Minchanka” and the readers of “Tribuna”? Share in the comments!
