Grace Coffin and the Badly-Sewn Corpse by @winter_fox_books

What I Loved: This book is written in first person narrative of both Grace Coffin and Cormac, our badly-sewn corpse. The chapters alternate between each narrator. I loved their commentary, like they were each just sitting down to have a conversation with you and tell you the story. I found the writing style easily drawing me in with this.

How I Felt: I really enjoyed the story. I found myself laughing at things that Cormac says and does, he’s really kind of a likable dead-guy! There are some serious subjects as well, and I found myself really thinking about the book and the story after I closed it.

To Read or Not To Read: This is a great book for people that love Charlaine Harris-type stories. I found the characters fun, but sassy and it had the right amount of spooky/ghoulish stuff in it.

What’s This Book About Anyway?
Grace Coffin is starting fresh in Southwest Harbor, with a new school and a new house. She doesn’t make friends easily, and she doesn’t want to, but she does start to have a friendship with the boy next door.

Cormac is dead, but he’s taken it upon himself to sew everything back together and take up residence in his backyard in a ridiculously large urn he built. He has chosen to not move to the other side so that he can solve his wife’s murder. His home becomes invaded by Grace and her mom, as they move in. After some time, Grace and Cormac find themselves joining forces to figure out and set right the wrongs in both their lives.

This book was provided to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.

SHARANAM WITH JUHI CHAWLA⁣⁣⁣
Published by @rupa_publications and @epicchannelindia⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Often we miss out on our favorite shows and don't get enough time to catch up on the content. But Epic channel in collaboration with Rupa publications recently released 3 of its popular infotainment shows in book formats. One of these books is Sharanam with Juhi Chawla. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I really liked reading this book. The stories of the devotees and the pilgrim places literally gave me gooseflesh. There were positive vibes that this book was emanating. This sojourn was like reigniting or rejuvenating faith, for me. And when I finished this book I wanted to read more. And more about other religions as well. India is a country where you will find faith stories in every nook and corner and so I hope this book does have a sequel to it. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Overall, if you like reading spiritual content and if you are inquisitive to know about the history and mythology behind some of the well known pilgrim places of India then you  must surely pick up this book. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⁣⁣⁣

More about the book is updated on my blog. ⁣⁣⁣

⭐️BOOK REVIEW⭐️ It’s hard to find the right words when it comes to historical fiction, especially when it’s a book outlining the horrific events surrounding the Holocaust. (Swipe for review)

I was fortunate enough to be chosen in Year 12 to go to Poland (in a day) to visit Auschwitz and Birkenau, so Morris’ two novels have touched me and given me stories to add to the scenes I saw. Hearing the stories of the few really makes you wonder about the millions of stories that are never going to be heard, and that’s why it’s so important to keep the stories that we do have, even in part, alive. 
Have you read either of Morris’ books?

My library had evrrything
All major writers
All genres
All bestsellers
I missed my own words 
For not being a part of my library
I wanted to see a book in my name
Become a part of the little collection i have
A few months back 
I decided to live the dream
And i could make it a reality
My book joined others 
In my book collection
Right now i'm nowhere near them
There are names or title i can never match
However i have faith 
Faith in me that i will 
I can someday 
Become one of them
Till then 
My love for writing
Will keep my faith intact

They are big, massive, and seriously feels like we’re going into a REAL museum. No other words can explain these three 💙💚🧡 Very detailed illustrations and explanation, suitable for young readers 😍 For my toddler son, he just likes to see the pictures. His current favorite is Dinosaurium 🦕 because there are A LOT of dinosaurs to point out 😅

BOOK REVIEW 📚 (English below) 🇮🇹
• Titolo: Hippie
• Autore: Paulo Coelho
• Genere: Romanzo
• Trama: Una sorta di autobiografia romanzata dell'autore durante gli anni 70, il periodo di rivoluzione hippie. Karla è una ragazza olandese che sogna di andare in Nepal per dare una svolta alla propria vita, Paulo è un giovane scrittore brasiliano che arriva ad Amserdam per lo stesso motivo della ragazza. Lì si incontrano e lui decide di accompagnare Karla in Asia. Durante il lungo viaggio su uno scalcinato pulmino Volkswagen incontreranno persone di tutti i tipi, faranno nuove amicizie ed esperienze che segneranno profondamente le loro esistenze. il tutto nella cornice dei difficili anni in cui la rivoluzione pacifica e chi la sosteneva non erano ben visti.
• Voto: Primo libro che leggo di Coelho, una lettura molto piacevole e interessante anche grazie ai cenni storici su un periodo di cui tutt'ora si parla. Divertente e scorrevole, lo consiglio davvero a tutti.

Commentate se lo avete letto oppure no! 🇬🇧

A Conjuring of Light | Book Review
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
.
I am not exaggerating when I say that I loved the first two books. And the way the second book ended, I could not wait to get started on this third one. As expected, it did not disappoint at all. V. E. Schwab manages to make every page of the book interesting. 
The shadows have gathered and it is up to Kell and Lila to banish them. 
Also, huge shoutout to the author for creating a very natural homosexual relationship as part of the story. I have seen many of the books trying to forcefully write LGBTQ characters and it never does them justice. Schwab very easily manages to convince us of the love between Rhy and Alucard and I was rooting for them to be together all the way! "Anoshe” in their language is the way they greet one another. Instead of goodbye, it signifies the start of something beautiful. It says ‘until another day’ because that shows hope and solace. It helps to get over the sadness of leaving something behind. It is not goodbye, but the certainty that nothing in future is certain. And in that uncertainty, there is hope for a better tomorrow! As I put down this book, that is what I choose to say to myself — anoshe. I hope I meet Kell and Lila again someday!

I had read about 50% of this book before going to sleep... And I didn't go to sleep. I finished it waayyy past my bedtime, and it was worth every lost minute of sleep! I loved all the twists in the story that surprised me each time. I was so engrossed in the story  that I didn't even see the time fly! Full review on #goodreads, link in bio! Many thanks to #harlequinteen for the e-copy of this book through #netgalley! #crownofcoralandpearl⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

SYNOPSIS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that’s ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince—while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor’s dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home—a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren’s brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen… and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cześć wszystkim!

Przychodzę dzisiaj do Was z recenzją trylogii Czarnego Maga od Trudi Canavan, czyli serii rozpoczynającej się od "Gildii magów". Już na samym początku muszę powiedzieć, że te książki zrobiły na mnie ogromne wrażenie zarówno pod kątem fabuły, jak i budowania świata, relacji, postaci i ich wiarygodności. "Gildia magów" rozpoczyna się, gdy w czasie Czystki - corocznego oczyszczania miasta z biedoty przez magów - zwykła dziewczyna z tłumu przez przypadek używa magii. Jest to ewenement, który nigdy wcześniej się nie zdarzył, więc cała Gildia Magów wyrusza na jej poszukiwania. Sonea, bo dziewczyna tak się właśnie nazywa, musi podjąć decyzje, które zaważą na jej dalszym życiu - czy powinna zaufać magom i uczyć się na ich uniwersytecie, czy może ukrywać się przed nimi i próbować rozwijać swoje umiejętności na własną rękę.

Ponieważ będzie to recenzja zbiorcza, muszę postarać się ograniczyć trochę moje zachwyty nad tą serią, bo - jak już pisałam - jestem pod jej ogromnym wrażeniem. Jeśli chodzi o fabułę, to muszę powiedzieć, że pierwsza część porwała mnie najmniej - co nie znaczy, że nie porwała mnie w ogóle! Była naprawdę ciekawa, ale przy kolejnych tomach może wypaść blado. Druga część, "Nowicjuszka", jest zdecydowanie moją ulubioną i wywołała we mnie mnóstwo pozytywnych emocji i sprawiła, że sama chciałabym znaleźć się w świecie Sonei. Jednak to trzeci tom, "Wielki mistrz", zapewnił mi największy rollercoaster przeżyć. Tutaj, w przeciwieństwie do poprzednich części, zupełnie nie zgadzałam się z główną bohaterką. Przez całą książkę miałam ochotę uderzyć Soneę, powiedzieć jej, żeby się nie zachowywała w ten sposób, bo rani wszystkich dookoła. A mimo tego nie mogłam przestać czytać.

Spośród wszystkich zalet tej trylogii największą dla mnie są bohaterowie. To za nich trzymałam z całej siły kciuki, to z nimi się śmiałam, bałam i poznawałam świat i to oni nie pozwalali mi ani na chwilę oderwać się od czytania. Wszystkie postacie są niesamowicie wykreowane i realistyczne. Każda z nich ma swój charakter, cele i poglądy. Temu, jak są stworzone, nie mam naprawdę nic do zarzucenia. [ciąg dalszy w komentarzu]

C'era poi il paesaggio, dove stava lentamente scendendo col motore tossicchiante e i comandi mosci come posate in un piatto di minestra. Rispetto al solido giallo del deserto cui era abituato, sotto la fusoliera del Falco iniziò a squadernarsi una inquietante varietà di colori e forme. Le fluttuazioni del telelevel si erano finalmente chetate sullo zero. Il volo risentiva di piccoli vuoti d'aria che facevano oscillare dolcemente le ali.⠀

Сборник "Тайна угрюмого дома". Ну "сборник" - это громко сказано. На самом деле состоит из одного романа и одной повести. Н. Д. Ахшарумов "Концы в воду": про автора никогда даже не слышала, однако роман на удивление хорош. 19 век, история одного убийства в виде дневниковых записей двух участников, рассказанная каждым "со своей колокольни". Читается на одном дыхании, правда, концовка слегка подкачала, на мой взгляд. Как будто под конец автор "сдулся".
А. Цеханович " Тайна угрюмого дома". Бандитский Петербург еще царских времен. Кража, точнее ее попытка, с двойным убийством и элементами мистики. Попытка автора "наворотить"сюжет превратила эту повесть в пошлую бульварную книжонку. Как эти два произведения ужились в одном сборнике - я не понимаю. Но " Концы в воду"читать определенно стоит.

Читается на одном дыхании, правда, концовка слегка подкачала, на мой взгляд. Как будто под конец автор "сдулся". А. Цеханович " Тайна угрюмого дома". Бандитский Петербург еще царских времен. Кража, точнее ее попытка, с двойным убийством и элементами мистики. Попытка автора "наворотить"сюжет превратила эту повесть в пошлую бульварную книжонку. Как эти два произведения ужились в одном сборнике - я не понимаю. Но " Концы в воду"читать определенно стоит. #bookworm #bookreview #книжныйобзор #pocketbook

Good morning! Here is my surprisingly instagrammable breakfast - pear and banana pancakes on #thechickenplate along with The Water Cure.
*
Honestly i didn’t love this book. I thought the writing style was fabulous, and that’s what drew me in to read it from the first line (‘Once we have a father, but our father dies without us noticing’). This style was wonderfully haunting; the constant present tense reflected how stuck the girls were in their situation, and also lent an almost stressful immediacy to the events that occur. But as for the actual events, I couldn’t help but think: ‘so what?’. There just wasn’t enough plot to get stuck into, it served more as an eerie snapshot of a life than a story. If this had been the first 250 pages of a longer novel of self-discovery and exploration it would have been wonderful, but as it stands I had too many questions remaining at the end to enjoy it for what it was.

Has anyone else read The Water Cure? I know it was longlisted for the Booker Prize last year so I assume that other readers enjoy the mysteries we are left with?

#readingjournal books pre September when I wasn’t making note of what I thought of books and wasn’t reading very often. Two books to add still as I forgot about them and yes I only count some HP books as 4 stars 😂 I’m harsh but there are two books there from my favourite author that are rated 3 and 3 stars. I really need to come up with a standard star rating system. 🌟 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaddict #bookaddiction #bookish #readersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #igbooks #booksofig #journalling #bookreview

В детстве и юности я очень любила книги с мифами и легендами, в моей библиотеке их было достаточно много, но это были мифы и легенды чужих стран.Различные интерпретации мифов Древней Греции, Египта и Рима.Томики Кельтских и Скандинавских мифов.🐾
⠀
С возрастом коллекция разрасталась, в ней появились книги по восточной и индийской мифологии, легенды стран Азии. Но не было ни одного издания наших, таких родных Славянских сказок и легенд.🙄
⠀
Я уже практически отчаялась найти подходящее для себя издание, пока не наткнулась на эти чудесные томики "Славянских Сказок" от издательства «Северная сказка». 📖
⠀
Книги основаны на сохранившейся древней мифологии славян. В них, как боги, так и люди, бывают разные: благородные и мудрые, завистливые и мстительные. Главные герои сказок преодолеют множество испытаний на пути к своей цели, получат помощь оттуда, откуда её не ждут, избавятся от злых чар и пройдут множество испытаний. И поймут, что главные качества — как Бога, так и человека — это умение любить, сострадать, помогать и творить.🌾
⠀
Мифология славян на свой лад рассказывается мудрым дедом Матвеем. Сказы про человечных богов и благородных людей напомнят нам об искушениях, о тёмной стороне мира, о мудрости предков и о силе светлой любви.🕊
⠀
От этих книг сложно оторваться как взрослому, так и ребенку.Книги прекрасно оформлены и дарят чувство тепла на душе и в сердце.❤️
⠀
❓А вы любите книги связанные с мифологией? Мифы и легенды каких стран/народов вам ближе всего по духу?

Sınavların ortasında başladığım ve dün üzülerek bitirdiğim güzel kitabım ❤️
Jane Eyre’nin insanı bir çok yönden etkileyebilecek bir kişi olduğuna inanıyorum ve kişilerin kendisinden bir parça, arzularından bir parça, bulabileceğine. Jane’nin kendi özgürlüğüne verdiği önem, laflarını özenle söylemesi, hayatında dengeyi bulmayı çalışması bir çoğumuzun empati kurabileceği olaylar. Kitaptaki bir çok karakter dönemin karakteristiklerini ortaya koyuyor örneğin Bay Rochester, Helen Burns ya da St. John. Jane Eyre’ı okumak oldukça kolay bir çok kişi en başlarda sıkıcı olduğunu söylemesine rağmen kitabın en başından beri Jane’ e karşı büyük bir sevgi duyduğum için kitap bana kalırsa en başından beri oldukça akıcı bir kitaptı 👌🏻. Kendisini ona sert davranıldığı zamanlarda daha güçlü hissetmesi ama nazik davrananların yanında ne yapıcağını bilmemesi biraz daha zayıf hissetmesi benim en çok empati kurabildiğim kısımlardandı. Jane’nin her şeyden önce kendi özgürlüğüne verdiği önemse en çok sevdiğim özelliklerinden biri. Fakat Jane’nin olayların tuhaflığını uzun bir zaman sonradan anlaması kitabı biraz da olasa yavaşlatan özelliklerdendi. Ve şunu da söylemeden geçmek istemiyorum klasikleri @canyayinlari gerçekten çok güzel çeviriyor bu yüzden Can Yayınlarını öneriyorum size 🙌🏻 4.5/5

Do you guys think alien exit?👽
.
.
I don't think big eyed and green skin type of aliens exist. But yess some kind intelligent life may exist, and they have probably found their way to earth but are really good at blending in with humans.
.
.
I really loved this spin off series by @jennifer_l_armentrout in which the humans now know about the existence of aliens which live among them. But no matter how many promises they make to live in peace, humans fear them just because they may seem strange.
.
.
I loved how in the second book the burning shadow, we really get to see that if one person commits a crime we tend to put blame on the whole group, because they seem to fit the niche. But everyone is different, and the actions of some cannot be placed on all.
.
Evie thinks she finally has a grasp on her life, but there are strange things happening to people around her and to her. But at least she has the support of Luc (an offspring of an alien and human). Luc made me laugh out soo many times, I love his vibe and attitude and he would always put her life above his!!!

Well hello everyone,
As the title suggests this book is indeed about the women who 'Inspire'. During the summer break this year, while my kiddo was busy reading books by Sudha Murty (I will share a post on that as well) I engulfed myself with this wonderful piece of writing by Gunjan Jain. This was her debut novel and was published in year 2016. 
The book talks about 24 Indian women who are a role model to many of us. Women who have stood tall against unfavorable circumstances or the conventional social conditioning that we all receive and have influenced the world with their success.
There are stories of women from different fields like bollywood, media, sports and the corporate world- Nita Ambani, Sudha Murty, Indra Nooyi, Priyanka Chopra, Saina Nehwal, Shobhana Bhartia .. to name a few! 
And not just that, the book also has small interviews by people who have seen them during their struggling phase and then their success. Some of such anecdotes are shared by Mukesh Ambani, NR Narayana Murthy, Sachin Tendulkar, Ranveer Singh, Sanjiv Goenka and more.. Highlights:
So this book is a perfect read for people who are:
A) fond of reading biographies;
B) are looking for some inspiration
C) believe in Feminism

The book consists of 550 odd pages and is divided into 24 chapters. The vocabulary is pretty comprehensive.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ .

Oh wow, this was absolutely incredible. Probably THE most 2019 book that will ever be. Bernardine Evaristo tells the story of various different, mostly black and all British, women. She discuses race politics and gender politics and sex politics and about every identity politics  there could be through the perspectives of very different characters. She expires different ways of living and of looking at life and power dynamics but, at the end of the day, this book is all about "being/together." The way these characters' lives weave together is moving and powerful. This book so deserved to win the Booker prize (on it's own.) HIGHLY recommend!

To Best the Boys @maryweberauthor 
This book is a solid 4 star read and very underrated since I have not seen or heard much about it. 
We have the story of Rhen a 17 year old girl from the lower class part of town who wants to be come a scientist one day. 
The Crippling Disease is spreading and fast. Now it has affected her mother. Rhen and her father work hard to find a cure but with no money, a higher education and the upper class not taking the situation into consideration Rhen feels hopeless. 
Then she remembers the letter everyone in town received. All the towns boys of a certain age are eligible to compete to win a full scholarship to the esteemed all male Stemwick University 
The task is simple, Don a disguise, survive the Labyrinth and pray she doesn’t caught before the competition ends. Not all who enter the magical and haunted labyrinth will return. 
What I liked about this book: There is such a powerful story of a daughters  love for her mother, to go after your dreams no matter what society thinks of you or tells you to be. This story is like many others out there now in regards to women being treated as possessions, how upper class society treats people they feel are beneath them. Issues many face still to this day. Many of us have heard at one time or another “You can’t do that, your a girl”

It was well written with characters you will love and many you will hate. There is suspense and a little bit of romance. 
What I was a little disappointed about was the amount of time time written in Labyrinth. It was such an amazing challenge for the characters to compete in and I just wanted a little more of that horror they had to face as well as the elaborate problems they need to solve to win. Also I do see the point of story was more about will and determination so I do understand. You will see many of characters development as well at this point. Some for the better and some for the worse 
The ending definitely summed up everything up nicely and left you feeling hopeful for Rhen and her future.

Ally is watching the Discovery Channel when a team exploring a cave system in Moldova, that was cut off from the world for millions of years, is attacked by carnivorous bat like creatures. They escape and multiply rapidly, decimating the human & animal population as the infestation spreads across the world.

The vesps hunt by sound. Ally has been deaf for many years and her family is well equiped to survive in a world of silence. As they flee across the country to someplace remote hoping to sit out the plague, they discover that there is more than one kind of monster.

This book was riveting and unputdownable. I'm not saying I was blown away by the book or it added something new to the apocalyptic  genre but Ally & her family are remarkable protagonists and I was quite invested in their survival.

The reading experience was cinematic. And since I'd already seen the Netflix adaptation, I could picture everything clearly. I loved both the book & the movie. Giving this one a big thumbs up.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Illuminating, enlightening, and uplifting, A New Earth is a profoundly spiritual manifesto for a better way of life—and for building a better world.

Gli sdraiati — Michele Serra.
.
.
Chi sono gli sdraiati? Gli adolescenti, figli di genitori distratti, assenti. Gli sdraiati sono tutti quei ragazzi che passano la vita dormendo, vivono davanti ad un cellulare, non parlano, non danno segni di entusiasmo. Michele Serra in queste 100 pagine racconta il distacco, il disinteresse, i mille dubbi, le insicurezze, i dispiaceri.. ma con un finale sorprendente che ci fa capire che probabilmente questi ragazzi avrebbero solo bisogno di stimoli.
Lettura leggera direi, interessante, ma leggera: 100 pagine piacevoli. Michele Serra, con un tocco di ironia, sarcasmo ma a anche serietà, è riuscito ad aprirmi gli occhi su alcune cose a cui non avevo mai pensato. 3/5 🌟 .
.
«La narcisizzazione dell’umanità ha punti di crisi? È un processo reversibile? Oppure ognuno è destinato a diventare il Grande Fratello di se stesso, sorvegliare filmare fotografare riprodurre ogni proprio gesto, ogni proprio respiro, ovviamente ogni vestito e ogni accessorio, modellarsi autisticamente giorno dopo giorno senza che il cozzo con gli altri lo deformi, lo scomponga, lo confonda, lo innamori, insomma lo alteri, lo riconsegni al caso e alla natura, alla gloriosa confusione della vita?».

Recommended read 🤓📚if you’re interested in improving your self awareness and better understanding other people’s behaviours.

I’ve taken many of the major personality tests and in my opinion this was the most accurate and useful. It teaches in detail how and why your personality was shaped by your childhood experiences. It’s a guide to moving beyond your personality to higher levels of being. Fascinating.

Dihubungi pada waktu petang tadi, seorang bomoh membuat pengakuan, Ustaz, saya dah pakai ilmu sihir dan Jin .. Kalau saya nak buang semua tu dan bertaubat masih ada kesempatan?
.
Jawab saya, Ya ... Selagi roh tidak sampai ke pangkal Ghargharah. ( Halkum ). . Dia menangis . Entah apa yang difikirkan dan disesalkan. Ustaz, banyak sangat benda syirik yang saya  buat .. belum sempat dia menghabiskan ayat .... saya sambung .. biarlah keaibanmu, antara awak dan Allah sahaja yang tahu.
.
Kisahnya, setiap malam dia diganggu setelah badannya lemah .. "benda" itu sebenarnya ingin memakan tuannya kembali. Ketahuilah, Jin dan Iblis mereka hanya pandai menipu daya.. Saat kau kuat, mereka akan turutimu namun disaat kau lemah mereka akan menghancurkanmu .

I have read this long time ago. Absolutely loved it. The story is filled with rebellion and hope and joy, and yet, just beneath the sufface a sense of foreboding flew throughout, materialising in the end.

Have you read it?

“We are our pyre. We only lit to cool our soul in flames. Dear Radha, we are our dreams drowned in our pyre. Neti Neti Neti”.
•••
Mahabharata is one of the grandest epic tales of Indian culture. All Lies, Says Krishna by J. Rajasekharan Nair is a fresh take on Mahabharata retelling the deep-rooted myths and then busting them with new perspectives.

I was delighted to read this book that kickstarts with Krishna visiting Radha after 50 years and narrating his life ridden with guilt, pain, and lies to her. It was beautiful to read their intimate conversations which reflect only pure love and ecstasy of meeting your beloved.

I have never read such an interesting and unique retelling of Mahabharata. The best part of this book was that the author has told the stories of lesser-known characters such as Kunti and Shakuni. How Kunti was violated at a tender age that resulted in her becoming a fiery and cold woman, how Shakuni had to breathe the death of his loved ones to keep the fire of revenge in him intact! Why Draupadi became the object of utter humiliation,  why Bheeshma didn’t object to it, why no elder in the courtroom raised their voice. How did the game of dice become the means of destruction? How Draupadi became the shared wife of five rapists? Aah! Her abject sadness and ignominy saddened me the most. Her silent whispers and muffled tears disturbed me the most.

I wouldn’t be giving away a lot of details because I want all the readers to read this brilliant narration of Mahabharata. Through the POV of Krishna, the story comes alive as the author puts life in his characters. A beautiful writing style coupled with wonderful narration totally kept me reading it. The meticulous choice of words, the seamless flow of the narrative, the breezy vibe of the plot – everything summed up for an enriching reading experience. The depth with which the author has taken us on a tour of Krishna’s insides was terrific. I am still in awe of this book. I am a sucker of beautifully articulated words and this book satisfied me immensely. For the first time, I realized what it takes to make a human wrong and how terrible the deeds of humans could be in the disguise of morals.

그런 의미에서 나는 소비형보다는 생산형을 선호하며, 그중에서도 늘 베풀 수 있는 전문적인 취미를 가지고 싶었다. 나이가 몇이건 상관없이 말이다. 그때 떠오른 것이 조주기능사였다.
_
이 구절을 읽으며 나 또한 떠오르는 게 있어 메모하지 않고는 지나칠 수 없었다. 작가님은 베풀고 싶어서 전문적인 취미 생활을 하고 싶으셨다는 대목에서 아차, 싶었다. 나는 그저 내 영혼이 쉴 곳만을 찾아다니며 그 물결 속에서 발견한 피아노가 좋았고 그림이 좋았고 와인이 좋았는데 말이다. 역시 한 사람의 그릇은 그가 하는 행위의 동기를 들여다볼 때 나타나는가 보다. 나는 참 클래식한 모든 것이 좋은데 그러한 클래식함 속에는 오랜 사랑이라는 온기가 느껴졌기 때문이다. 클래식하다. 즉, 고전적이다. 다시 말해서 오랜 기간 사랑받아왔다. 이 자체만으로 '낭만'이 아닐 수가 없다. 그래서 나는 클래식함을 사랑하는데 그러한 사랑이 깃든 작품들을 대하고 늘 마음에 담아두면서도 정작 나는 단 한 번도 타인에게 사랑을 베풀기 위해 내 취미를 사용해보고 싶다는 생각을 한 적이 없었다. 소믈리에 자격증을 취득하고 싶었을 때의 동기조차도 조금 더 깊이 와인 맛을 음미할 수 있기를 그래서 더 깊이 책과 함께 사색할 수 있기를 이란 마음에서 비롯되었던 것이지, 주변인들과 나누며 그들에게 와인이 주는 맛의 즐거움을 전하고 싶어서였던 적은 없었기 때문이다. 나는 취미를 참 열심히 소비해왔구나 싶었다. 이게 나쁘다는 것은 아니나, 책을 읽으며 취미를 베풀 수도 있겠구나 싶어서, 인생의 작은 목표를 향해 가는 동안 힘이 되어줄 따뜻한 동기 하나가 더 부여되는 순간이었다.
_
나는 여전히 좋아하는 것들은 더욱 깊이 파고들고 어떤 기회에는 첫 경험을 맞이하며 새로운 좋아하는 것들을 추가하는 중이다. 그러나 시대의 흐름은 말한다. 모든 빨리빨리 변화하며 나를 따라오고, 적응하라고. 그럴 때면 클래식함을 사랑하고 클래식하고 싶은 나는 도태되는 느낌을 지울 수가 없다. 그러나 이 책이 내게 전달해준 가장 소중한 깨달음은 좋아하는 것들을 꾸준히 지켜나가야 한다는 점이다. 좋아하는 것이 내 일이 될 수 있을까 아닐까에 대한 고민은 현재도 진행 중이지만 탐독 중 어렴풋이 찾을 수 있던 추상적인 해답은, 나는 좋아하는 것들을 향유할 때 행복한 사람이므로 그것이 곧바로 나의 일에 접목되고 스며들지는 못하더라도, 꾸준히 사랑하는 것들을 추구하며 잃어버리지는 말아야겠다는 것이었다. 좋아한다면 그것으로 반드시 성과를 이뤄야 한다 와 같은 대전제는 어디에도 없다. 그러므로 그저 끊임없이 관심을 기울이고 내 곁에 두며 마음껏 담뿍 좋아하고 사랑해야겠다. 그러면 훗날 이 조각조각들이 모여 내 삶의 커다란 등불이 되어줄지도 모를 테니.

"After all, we are what we are, either in dreams or for real.” - Love, Power, Infinity - Shekhar Raja🌺🌹
.
Plot - 🌺🌹it is a short story with a very unique take on love and how its meaning is tasted when it comes in a different form. Since it is short story , the best way to read it is to jump into it without knowing much about the plot.🌺🌹
.
🌺🌹
The story is thought provoking with plot twists that I definitely did not see coming . To the last page I was pleasantly shocked with the sudden change in narrative. 
For a short story, it was just enough conclusive and open ended to allow our own interpretation. 🌺🌹
I will give this short story a 4 ⭐.
Until next time ,

Here's one more interpretation of some classic Jane Austen that I (Jen) absolutely loved!⠀
⠀
After I finished Sonali Dev's Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors, I still felt as if I was in the world she'd built. She took the most essential parts of Pride and Prejudice and transformed them, building a modern world in the midst of an Indian family living in America. Dr. Trisha Raje, the protagonist, has been (sort of) disowned by her family after a mysterious mistake that threatens her brother's political career. When she meets DJ Caine (DJ stands for Darcy James. Ha!), their relationship seems to be built on immediate repulsion. But of COURSE (because it's a Jane Austen re-telling), that initial conflict is hiding something more. Dev uses the class conflict that lies at the heart of Pride and Prejudice and embraces the horribly awkward misunderstandings that characterize the protagonists' relationship. Over the course of the novel, she addresses the pros and cons of assimilation, the medical field, the art of cooking, the #metoo movement, racism, and police brutality . . . and so much more. And all of that is wrapped up in a subtle, complex, yearning romance that is just gorgeous. I'll definitely be reading more of Sonali Dev's catalog.

CW: internalized homophobia, PTSD from very religious upbringing, panic attacks.
8/10 on the Rainbow Scale™ 🌈: very gay, very funny for most of the book. It has the feel of a fluffy Friends to Lovers fanfiction while simultaneously making fun of shipper culture, which is a joy to read. The two "romantic leads" don't really have the best chemistry and sometimes they're hard to root for, but the parts about Brandon's PTSD from his religious upbringing are incredibly honest and can be found relatable by many readers. All things considered, a really good YA novel.

나는 책을 구매할 때 주로 서점을 애용한다. 이유는 책을 펼쳐보고 구미가 당겨야 후루룩 읽을 수 있기 때문이다. 그리고 그렇게 산 책은 여러 번 읽게 되기 때문에 당연히 소장을 해야만 해서 사는 것이다. 그런데 이 책은 늘 궁금했던 한 사람의 창업스토리를 알고 싶었기에 서점으로 발걸음을 향하지도, 책을 한 번 펼쳐보지도 않은 채 인터넷서점을 이용하여 구매했었다. 그러나 부수적인 이유도 있었다. 글에는 한 사람의 성품도 온기도 사상도 담기기에, 도대체 그는 어떤 사람이기에 이러한 시도를 과감히 했었고 성과를 이뤄낼 수가 있었는지에 대한 궁금증을 해소하기 위해서였다. 그의 바에서 저자의 책을 2시간 동안 탐독하여 완독한 뒤, 이 책에 대한 나의 소비를 평가했다. 결과는 별 다섯 개, 대만족.
_
즉 '요즘 시대의 일과 삶'에 관한 내 나름의 현재진행형 이야기다. 고민과 시행착오가 늘 함께했던 여정에 대해 모두와 이야기 나누고 싶다. 시대의 흐름에 흔들리지 않고 자신의 목소리에 귀 기울이며 나아갈 수 있도록.

프롤로그를 시작으로 나는 책에 빠져들었다. 이 책은 단순히 절차적인 창업 이야기를 담은 게 아니라 창업을 하게 이끈 동력이었던 그 자신에 대한 탐구가 담긴 책이겠구나 싶었다. 그리고 내 예상은 적중했다. 책을 읽는 내내, 내면의 목소리가 철학적 질문들을 하며 내게 말을 걸어왔다. 너는 무엇을 좋아하는가 그리고 너는 어떠한 삶을 살고 싶어 하는가. (진지한 사고 중임에도 불구하고 바에서 잔잔히 No Other Love의 전주가 흘러나올 때는 에어팟을 빼고 책을 잠시 내려둔 뒤, 곡을 감상했었다.😂) 과연 나란 사람은 무엇을 좋아할까? 모든 사람이 그러하듯, 나 또한 외향성과 내향성을 동시에 지닌 사람이다. 그러나 그 무게가 어느 하나로 치우치질 않아서 나도 나란 사람이 외향적인 인간인지 내향적인 인간인지 쉽사리 판단하기란 쉬운 일이 아니다. 예로, 때로는 스피드 레이스를 즐기고 싶어 스포츠카가 좋고, 그 차만이 지닌 고유한 감성을 느낄 때 행복한 꽤나 활동적인 사람이지만, 한편으로는 겉보기에 정적이나 가만히 느끼다 보면 예술가들의 예술을 향한 광기가 들끓는 음악을 미술을, 그리고 태풍의 눈을 숨긴 채 조용히 자리하고 있는 모든 글들을 사랑하기 때문이다. 거칠게 질주하고 오면 가만히 음악 감상을 하며 와인 한잔한다든가, 조예가 깊지는 않지만 그저 좋아서 바라보게 되는 그림들을 마주하고, 작품이 내게 조용히 손짓하며 이끄는 영혼의 안식처로 빨려 들어간다든가, 하는 것이다. 그렇다면 과연 나는 어떠한 삶을 살고 싶어 하는 걸까? 이 질문에 대한 답은 내 고민에 대한 답과도 맞닿아있다. 삶의 곳곳에 예술을 품고 다니고 싶음에도 불구하고 여전히 해야 할 일만 하며 고의와 자의로 만든 미로 속을 헤매는 이유는, 알고 있는 답과는 달리 나는 여전히 무엇을 할지 보다, 무엇이 될 것인가에 집착하고 있기 때문이다.

📖 with🍸1 _ 나는 책을 구매할 때 주로 서점을 애용한다. 이유는 책을 펼쳐보고 구미가 당겨야 후루룩 읽을 수 있기 때문이다. 그리고 그렇게 산 책은 여러 번 읽게 되기 때문에 당연히 소장을 해야만 해서 사는 것이다. 그런데 이 책은 늘 궁금했던 한 사람의 창업스토리를 알고 싶었기에 서점으로 발걸음을 향하지도, 책을 한 번 펼쳐보지도 않은 채 인터넷서점을 이용하여 구매했었다. 그러나 부수적인 이유도 있었다. 글에는 한 사람의 성품도 온기도 사상도 담기기에, 도대체 그는 어떤 사람이기에 이러한 시도를 과감히 했었고 성과를 이뤄낼 수가 있었는지에 대한 궁금증을 해소하기 위해서였다. 그의 바에서 저자의 책을 2시간 동안 탐독하여 완독한 뒤, 이 책에 대한 나의 소비를 평가했다. 결과는 별 다섯 개, 대만족. _ 즉 '요즘 시대의 일과 삶'에 관한 내 나름의 현재진행형 이야기다. 고민과 시행착오가 늘 함께했던 여정에 대해 모두와 이야기 나누고 싶다. 시대의 흐름에 흔들리지 않고 자신의 목소리에 귀 기울이며 나아갈 수 있도록. _ 프롤로그를 시작으로 나는 책에 빠져들었다. 이 책은 단순히 절차적인 창업 이야기를 담은 게 아니라 창업을 하게 이끈 동력이었던 그 자신에 대한 탐구가 담긴 책이겠구나 싶었다. 그리고 내 예상은 적중했다. 책을 읽는 내내, 내면의 목소리가 철학적 질문들을 하며 내게 말을 걸어왔다. 너는 무엇을 좋아하는가 그리고 너는 어떠한 삶을 살고 싶어 하는가.

📚 Let’s talk about men’s mental health • Did you know that only 50% of men feel comfortable to discuss mental health issues? Even though 12.5% of men are diagnosed at any given moment with a mental health condition?

Anxiety. Depression. Panic disorder. You name it. Men have been recognised in the mental health field as a vulnerable group & yet also identified as “hard to help”. Why?

Men are usually less likely to reach out for help when struggling with mental health issues. @lidpublishing Positive Male Mind breaks down the stats and reality of men’s mental health, while also offering us strategies and action steps to end the stigma among men.

I came across a book by stormie omartian (not sure if i can even remember the title) when i was a child but of course i couldn't really comprehend whatever message she was trying to pass across.
•
Fast forward to September 2019, i came across another book - POWER OF A PRAYING WIFE. I decided to read this book instead of letting go like the previous time. I picked this book from a shelf and well it was given as a wedding gift to someone who has never read it before. (problem of a typical Nigerian, lol)
•
Don't wait till the storm comes before you pray for your husband. Pray for him today; pray for him always. We tend to pray only when we are in trouble but prayer is powerful when you pray before the storm. If you are not married, pray for your future husband.
•
This is one of the many books that has again opened my insight in the spiritual realms; some things are beyond the ordinary and physical. PRAY ALWAYS! There's also THE POWER OF A PRAYING HUSBAND. I would try as soon as possible to read that too and share my reviews. LOVE & LIGHT ALWAYS ❤️❤️💥

Look what's arrived in-store just in time for the gift-giving season! 💥 If you're a fan of comedian Jenny Slate of Parks & Recreation fame, you need to check out Little Weirds 😍 Kate said: "When I first learned that comedian/actor Jenny Slate was publishing a book, I was keen. More recently I've learned that it is a bonkers and impossible to categorise collection, a mystifying mish-mash of personal essays, poetry and fiction, and I am now the keenest of beans. I can't say I would have this reaction if this was produced by anyone else's brain, but it makes perfect sense for Slate. If you too love her nutty, tender, excitable humour, make sure you lay your hands on this gem of a book."

THROWBACK THURSDAY!
The Ruin - Dervla McTiernan

Ok so this would be a throwback to most people (it came out in 2018) but not to me because I've only just read it! 
This poor little book has been sitting in my Netgalley arcs for over a year! Shame on me! I finally decided to read it this month and couldn't believe I'd left it sitting there so long, it's really good!

Hands up whose heard of this book? No me either! Guys, your missing out! 
A crime thriller featuring Garda Cormac Reilly as our main character, we follow him as he reopens a case from 20 years previous which is linked to the body they have just pulled out of the river.

This book has so many twists and turns by the end I was totally gripped to find out what happened, it's a cliché but I could not put it down! .
.
The ending was great and I'm pleased to say there were plenty of surprises, I didn't figure it out at all! 
Cormac is a great main character to have, he has all the qualities of a good detective plus there's clearly a few secrets lurking in his past. As this is the first in a series, hopefully more about him will be revealed in future books! .
.
The book is set on Galway, Ireland and you can practically feel the wind and the rain coming off the pages (or perhaps it's just easy for me to imagine since it's exactly the same right now here in Wales!) It's so atmospheric and I loved all the Irish names and accents in the book! .
.
If you are looking for a new police procedural novel to sink your teeth in to, I would definitely recommend this one! Detvla McTiernan is now firmly on my radar and I will be keeping my eyes out for the next book in the series!

4/5 stars from me!

Many thanks to @netgalley @littlebrownbookgroup_uk
And @dervlamctiernan  for an advanced copy of this book.

Parlons BD aujourd'hui avec Faut pas prendre les cons pour des gens de Emmanuel Reuzé​ et Nicolas Rouhaud chez @fluide_glacial . Si le titre vous plaît, je suis certaine que vous apprécierez ce que la BD a à vous offrir! Par le biais de l'absurde et d'une exagération de nos travers, les auteurs dénoncent et soignent l'indignation par la rire. C'est cynique, surréaliste et parfois un peu subversif mais ça fait un bien fou!

Buenos días, chicas
Hoy os traigo una nueva imagen del  #RetoBookPhotoStar.
Foto 13: Libro favorito de la infancia.
Dicen que es difícil hacer que los niños lean, pero en mi caso, y supongo que en el de la mayoría de vosotras, fue muy fácil.
.
El libro de la foto lo he elegido no porque sea el que más veces leyera o el que más me gustara cuando era pequeña, si no por su importancia en mi historia lectora.
.
Fue con él con el que conocí a Harry Potter y me aficioné a leer aún más de lo que ya leía.
Os estaréis preguntando por qué empecé por este y no por el primero. Pues todo tiene una explicación.
.
Nos regalaron a mi hermana y a mí, cuando hicimos la Primera Comunión, los dos primeros libros que se habían publicado del joven mago. Sin saber que se continuaban elegimos uno cada una y comenzamos a leer. Ya cuando llevábamos unos capítulos nos dimos cuenta de que seguían un orden, pero yo no quería parar de leer y continué.
.
Tiempo después me leí el primero, pero para mí "Harry Potter y la cámara secreta" siempre será especial ya que fue el comienzo de muchos años disfrutando de esta mágica saga.
.
¿Cuál es vuestro libro favorito de la infancia? ¿Conocisteis a Harry Potter siendo niñas?

Oh. My. Goodness 
It's not even world kindness day anymore.

It's not often us Brits are so open with our praise, but when we are ... blimey.

I am two weeks post major surgery on my pituitary gland (hormone king) so I'm hormotional anyway, but this... This made me go and put the kettle on to stop me shaking. I hate to use a phrase my Mum uses enthusiastically about a sandwich from M&S but I'm blown away.  #virtualassistant #businesstips #va #flexibleworking #freelancelife #bookreview #vabook #tweetsfromtwitter #vatips #beyourownboss #womeninbusiness

📚 BOOK TOUR REVIEW 📚
Thank u to @ospringauthor for sending me a review copy of 'Love Offline' in return for an honest review. This is my first ever blog tour review so I'm super excited to share my thoughts on this book.
.
5🌟
.
I can only describe this book as funny, witty, laugh out loud and I couldn't put it down. The friendship between Emily and Chloe I really enjoyed. I reminded me of me and my best friend when I was younger and hopeless in love. When social media took over your life checking how many comments or likes on a picture, how many friends I had on Facebook so I could def relate to Emily and the modern world of social media. I laughed out loud in parts, cringed with awkwardness and sometimes shouted at my kindle lol it was also a great book to remind us to sometimes just take a break from our online presence. Enjoy the life out there on ur doorstep. It just made me feel good and fuzzy inside 😊
.
Definately a book to curl up on the sofa with a warm blanket and a cup of tea. I'm already so excited to read more from this author.
.
For a full synopsis of the book head over to my blogs later today... Links in my bio.

Ebbene sì! È giunto il momento anche per la sottoscritta di parlare della saga che ha letteralmente fatto impazzire Instagram: #Nevernight di #JayKristoff! Il primo volume era così chiacchierato che all’inizio è stato persino difficile trovarlo in libreria. Ma poi ce l’ho fatta e mi sono finalmente dedicata a questa lettura. #Nevernightmaidimenticare è un romanzo fantasy, il primo di una saga, che vede protagonista la giovane Mia Corvere dal passato difficile decisa a vendicare la morta del padre. Per fare ciò decide di intraprendere il cammino per diventare una Lama, ossia una spietata serial killer pronta a combattere.
Ma non voglio soffermarmi sulla trama, che sicuramente è qualcosa di noto, ma su ciò che mi ha più colpito della storia.
Perché si, Nevernight mi è piaciuta. Ti coinvolge e vuoi assolutamente proseguire con la vicenda MA ci sono dei difetti assolutamente non trascurabili:
👉🏼 l’inizio è decisamente confusionario e poco chiaro. Il lettore viene buttato nell’universo creato da Kristoff senza avere delle coordinate con cui orientarsi. In certi punti è proprio difficile capire cosa sta dicendo (anche se qui ho i miei dubbi: forse è la traduzione che non rende?)
👉🏼 le scene di sesso sono grottesche e tratti patetiche. 👉🏼 le note a piè di pagina che spiegano alcune vicende del passato della storia sono eccessivamente lunghe, rendendo la lettura frammentata e poco chiara.

Riassumendo: la trama è molto interessante, la protagonista adorabile e apprezzo molto il modo in cui Kristoff decide di sbarazzarsi dei personaggi anche importanti senza troppi problemi (differenziandosi così da molti fantasy dove i personaggi chiave difficilmente vengono sacrificati), ma non sempre la storia è chiara. Sopratutto all’inizio.
Non vedo l’ora di leggere il secondo per sapere di più della vicenda e per capire se questi elementi negativi iniziali migliorano 😊
Un plauso ad @oscarvault che ha realizzato un’edizione davvero splendida, curata nei minimi dettagli!

Come voto direi un bel 7.5/10 ⚔️

Is there a book that you loved when younger but that you now look at differently?
.
When I was 13 I read a Portuguese translation of this book for class. I fell in love with Haggard's description of the landscapes, the voyage element of it all, after all I was a keen adventurer and had already moved countries a couple of times and houses a lot. So I loved it, and as far as an adventure and discovery and journey type novel goes it was great!
.
Now through the eyes of a person who knows better, and realises that this is a 'classic' and perceptions were different then, the writing of African characters is problematic. Firstly, Haggard was, to an extent, breaking the stereotypical portrayal of this character by including a gentleman 'of colour' as he puts it in the novel, to contrast directly with the 'barbarians'. This is a huge issue, as he seemed to have been implying that Western culture and English influence is what turned people into gentleman, suggesting therefore that any other etiquette or custom is barbaric and brutish. Haggard also included a relationship between a black woman and a white man, which would have been groundbreaking had he gone through with it to the bitter end. But he kills her. That's right, he killed her off because in his reality it wasn't fathomable. Haggard may have not been the worse in his depiction of characters of African Descent but he certainly believed in the British Empire and its ability to 'improve' people. In this way he propagated the belief forward in his writing that British-Ness was something all should aspire to. This is something that is still identifiable today at times, not so blatantly perhaps but it is still visible. (watch out for my review of Natives!) .
It still holds a special place in my heart for this book because it was my first English classic read, although a translation of it. But I now know and see how much of a problem book it is, a book that promotes these stereotypes and beliefs that seem to be coming back into fashion, which is absolutely frightening!

Is there a book that you loved when younger but that you now look at differently? . When I was 13 I read a Portuguese translation of this book for class. I fell in love with Haggard's description of the landscapes, the voyage element of it all, after all I was a keen adventurer and had already moved countries a couple of times and houses a lot. So I loved it, and as far as an adventure and discovery and journey type novel goes it was great! .

👩 Kim Ji Young, born 1982
Tác giả: Cho Nam Joo
🌟 Rating: 4/5.5

Nữ giới luôn là đề tài yêu thích của mình. Mình từng khóc cạn nước mắt vì cuộc sống khổ cực của những người phụ nữ Trung Quốc trong thời kỳ Cách mạng văn hoá, nể phục sự dũng cảm và hy sinh của người vợ, người mẹ trong thế chiến thứ II… Với cuốn sách viết về nữ giới của Cho Nam Joo, cũng là một trong số ít tác phẩm Hàn Quốc mình từng đọc, thật khó trình bày cảm xúc của mình. Đó là câu chuyện khiến mình day dứt và bất lực. Đâu đó ngoài kia, trong khi nhiều tổ chức, con người đấu tranh cho nữ quyền thì những người phụ nữ Hàn Quốc vẫn đang và sẽ câm lặng chôn vùi cuộc đời mình trong định kiến giới.

Sở dĩ cuốn sách mang tên Kim Ji Young vì đây là cái tên được đặt nhiều nhất cho các bé gái ở Hàn Quốc năm 1982. Nhân vật chính của chúng ta, Kim Ji Young là cô gái nhút nhát, yếu đuối, mắc chứng trầm cảm sau sinh. Trong thời đại “cái tôi” được đề cao, câu chuyện về Ji Young mờ nhạt, không nổi trội nhưng cô gái này lại đại diện cho nhiều người mẹ, người vợ Hàn Quốc đương thời.

Kim Ji Young cũng phải trải qua những việc như chúng ta đã từng trải qua. Đến đây thì sẽ có sự nhầm lẫn: tôi là Kim Ji Young hay Kim Ji Young là tôi. Bởi vì Kim Ji Young đang sống “cuộc đời của người phụ nữ", trích đoạn bình luận của học giả Kim Go Yeon Ju.

Kim Ji Young là con gái thứ hai trong gia đình có ba chị em. Từ nhỏ, cô và chị gái không được bố và bà nội quan tâm, phải nhường hết những gì tốt đẹp nhất cho em trai. Ra ngoài xã hội, cô trở thành mục tiêu cho những trò quấy rối nhưng bố cô tin rằng, lỗi này thuộc về chính con gái mình do mặc váy ngắn.

Ở công ty, dù nỗ lực hết sức, cô cũng chỉ xếp sau cánh mày râu vì phụ nữ dễ sinh con rồi nghỉ việc, chỉ đàn ông có khả năng gắn bó lâu dài mới được coi trọng. Trong hôn nhân, cô phải cảm thấy may mắn vì được chồng “giúp” chăm con, phải tiết kiệm dù chỉ 1.500 won (30.000 đồng) mua cà phê nếu không muốn bị nói là đồ sâu bọ ăn bám vào chồng. Kim Ji Young đã từ bỏ tuổi thơ cho em trai, nhường cơ hội thăng tiến cho đồng nghiệp nam, một mình chăm con sau sinh không dám oán trách một lời.

**Book Review Post 41**
THE LIGHT IN THE BLACKOUT: 
The author Farah Naqvi has beautifully portrayed the simplest emotions in a way that can hook the reader. Her writing style is simple yet intresting 
The book is a simple story of lifeline of a girl Alizah who developed the problem of epilepsy at a young age. The story is simply heart-warming and emotional. The prpblem started with her childhood, her studies, to how she faced the initial symptoms of epilepsy, her family and how they supported her.
The book is amazingly written. Usually, long reads are bore but this one was intresting. 
The characters are very strong and well defined. 
The protagonist's struggles are kept real!
The story is superb and captures the essence of hope, love and life.

Wonderful read .

I really wanted to love this book. The first half was wonderful. I loved the way it was written and the wonderful concept that essentially runs with the idea that life flashes before your eyes in the moments after death and runs with it. I loved Tequila Leila and how we saw through these flashes of memory the girl she once was and the woman she became. But unfortunately once we got past the 10 Minutes and 38 Seconds heralded in the title I thought the story lost its impact... It became a bit ridiculous and unbelievable and the dialogue even felt a bit clichéd, undermining the poignant and important message of the first section. If you’ve read this one, what did you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🦚🍃

It's a Good Read 📚📚📚 - DKU staff recommend their favorite books. This time, biology professor Anastasia Tsigkou talks about “The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins.
**
Why recommend? The immortal gene will question evolution, philosophy and religion. This book is one of my all-time favorites and a must-read for all students.
**
Favorite quote/part of the book “Biology without selfishness is nothing but fiction.” ― Abhijit Naskar
**
According to a review in The Guardian in 2012, "The Selfish Gene" discusses that "Since individual life is short, and life on Earth is a 3.8-billion-year epic, what matters must be the information transmitted from generation to generation. So it's the genes that control the future: An animal is just the chromosomes' way of making another chromosome. Individual life becomes a punctuation point in the DNA's blind, automaton desire for eternity." If you're interested in evolutionary biology, check out the e-book via our library website!

Сегодня покажу вам прекрасное коллекционное издание двух книг, которые относятся к достаточно редкой художественной жанровой форме -"пьеса-сказка".✨
⠀
Карло Гоцци "Турандот". Переводчик Михаил Лозинский. Художник Денис Гордеев
Восточная сказка очаровывает красотой сюжета. Смелость, отвага, коварство и любовь - все присутствует в великолепной трагикомедии. Искрометный юмор, сюжет и великолепные иллюстрации ставят ее в ряд замечательных произведений, которые одинаково интересны и детям, и взрослым.💔
⠀
Морис Метерлинк "Синяя Птица". Переводчик Николай Любимов. Художник Екатерина Силина.
Забавный и грустный, лиричный и умный рассказ о приключениях двух детей, разыскивающих Синюю птицу - символ счастья, проникнут верой в доброту и силу человека, в его победу над еще непознанными, но познаваемыми силами и законами природы, над страданиями человеческими. 🕊
⠀
Данное издание это подарочный комплект из прекрасно оформленных книг в шелковых переплетах с трехсторонним золотым обрезом, шелковым ляссе и итальянской бумагой.🌹
⠀
❓Знакомы с данными произведениями? Читали книги или возможно смотрели постановку? А может знаете еще пьесы-сказки, с которыми стоит ознакомиться?

#PointLecture #AvisLecture 🖋Les silences sauvages de Karin Serres, publié chez @almaediteur 🖋 "Cadeau" de la @librairie.caracteres pendant la journée montoise avec les bookstagrammeurs du sud-ouest 💜. ※※※
✩ Il y a des romans qui ne laissent qu'une petite empreinte sur le lecteur et puis il y a ceux qui nous font réfléchir et que l'on a besoin de mûrir avant d'en parler. Ce roman fait partie de la seconde catégorie. ✩ ※※※
★ Dans ce livre, Karin Serres nous livre trois récits mettant en scène chacun des femmes au croisement de leurs destinées. Elles vivent toutes trois un moment où violence, misère, solitude, abnégation et résilience ont malheureusement leurs places à des degrés différents dans le quotidien de ces femmes. ★
※※※
✩ Chacun des récits fait écho à un instant - plus ou moins durable - dans la vie de ces femmes dont on ne sait que si peu de choses ; leurs vies ne  nous sont révélées que petit à petit. Elles doivent affronter la vie pour se relever et Karin Serres raconte ses instants de trois vies avec une écriture énigmatique, des bouts de phrases alternant entre violence et amer réalisme. Elle ne dit finalement que très peu de choses sur ses personnages et pourtant on ressent toute la sensibilité et d'empathie qu'elle éprouve pour elles, enfermées chacune dans la solitude, le silence et les douleurs de la vie. ✩
※※※
★ Je me suis laissé emporter par les univers dépeints dans chacun des récits et je me suis surprise à lire puis relire à voix haute certains passages tant ils sont beaux à écouter et tant ils me parlaient. A la fin de chacune de ces histoires, on en ressort séché car on a vécu le temps de quelques pages la brutalité de la vie des personnages. Chaque histoire fait réfléchir aux thèmes mais également aux caractères des personnages autant qu'à la fin qui tombe comme un couperet nous séparant de la vie des personnages que l'on a suivi le temps de la lecture. ★
※※※
✩ En bref, Karin Serres offre ici un recueil de trois nouvelles, chacune riche en émotion qui ne laissera sans aucun doute personne indifférent. ✩

Эта осень выдалась плодотворной на книжные открытия, сегодня расскажу и покажу книгу, которая покорила мое сердце, подняла настроение и разбудила внутри дух путешествий, которые немного поутих за последнее время.🍁
⠀
"Сказки странствий" это результат работы трех невероятно талантливых людей.Тексты Натальи Чернышевой и Позняковой Светланы буквально перенесут вас в разные уголки нашего мира, а иллюстрации Александры Косячной помогут полностью погрузиться в истории и декорации тех городов, куда вы отправитесь. Герои сказок-странники.Странники, которые пытаются в своих путешествиях познать мир и себя.Их ждут невероятные приключения, случайные встречи(Хотя мы то с вами знаем, случайные встречи совсем не случайны) и конечно волшебная атмосфера новых городов и стран.Вместе с героями вы посетите Москву, Лондон, Париж, Алма-Ату, Прагу, Лиссабон и Флоренцию.И поверьте, вам будет крайне сложно удержаться от того, чтобы не броситься покупать билеты на самолет.✈️
⠀
А теперь добавьте к таким чудесным сказкам совершенно фантастическое оформление, ее так приятно держать в руках и перелистывать странички.Ее хочется рассматривать снова и снова.Тексты легкие, но оставляющие приятное послевкусие для раздумий, их хочется смаковать и обсуждать с друзьями вечерами за чашечкой кофе или бокалом вина.🍷
⠀
❓А вы любите путешествовать? Расскажите о ваших любимых городах и странах? Возможно у вас есть какие-то невероятные и интересные истории, которыми вы хотели бы поделиться.
