Sometimes to appreciate a book you need to talk about it with a friend who REALLY loved it.  This is what happened with “Chicago” by Brian Doyle.  I am going to be honest, though beautifully written, I didn’t connect with this book.  So much so I picked up another book to read AND began a new knitting project, instead of finishing this one.  I made it maybe two thirds of the way through before book group.  I read enough to be able to discuss and have a favorite character.  After hearing from the one person who finished it, I decided to give it another try; yes I picked it back up and am very happy I did.  Perhaps “Chicago”could have become a novel with a fascinating plot moving the reader through the streets of the Windy City... instead the author opened his treasure chest to spill out his tale through a cast of characters.  It is described as a “love letter” to Chicago.... perhaps.  Finishing it, I believe it is a love letter to humanity, and possibly one remarkable dog.  It is a reminder, everyone has a place and a story.... we only need to be sensitive to the timing of the giving and open to receiving. “Chicago” may not go down as a favorite, but it most definitely made an impression.  And, I am so happy I have friends who will argue for a book they are passionate about.  Have you read “Chicago”? Love to hear your thoughts reading friends! #bookthoughts #booksandshares #bookstagram #autumnreads #30daysofblessings #bookworm #bookgroup

the #waywardchildren books by #seananmcguire have been some of my very favourites of this year. like, in this year’s top five, i’d say, re-reads excluded. i loved them so much; the idea behind them is so unique, and perfectly executed. i didn’t love #beneaththesugarsky (of which i don’t possess a physical copy yet) as much as the first two books, #everyheartadoorway and #downamongthesticksandbones, but i still treasure this series as a whole. i can’t wait for #inanabsentdream, which my besties @abysseuse and @librosetfeles preordered for me for my birthday and which is scheduled to come out in january 2019. i’m so excited!
.
have you found a new favourite series this year? tell me all about it!🎄

A lot of people have read this novel over the years in school. Even kids I went to school with read it, but for some reason my classes never did. Anyway, I've always been curious about it so I finally got around to it!
🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦
On the surface, I got pretty bored with this book and didn't really get the point until nearing the end. After doing some reflection and reviewing the themes in the story, I found that through the simple prose came more complex topics like racial injustice, gender relations, and class issues. I can now see why so many schools have chosen to use this book to highlight all those things. I also found her descriptions of the world around the characters as simple, yet vivid. Have you read this? What did you think?
🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦
Also, I bought this #booksleeve from @novelnuzzler as a Christmas gift for a family member and I'm so excited to see what they think! This one fits smaller novels, the Rusty!

i’m reading too many books at once, and i really want to finish most of them before the year is out, so i guess that’s what my bookish focus will be on for the next couple of weeks. currently i’m mostly into #northandsouth by #elizabethgaskell, which i’ll finish in the next couple of days. i also picked up #thesweetfarthing by #libbabfay once more and i’m getting back into the story. #eatinganimals by #jonathansafranfoer is a book i started sometime this summer, but put it aside after a while, because i found most of the information given truly depressing. i’ve only a hundred pages more to go, though, and the book reads very smoothly - i never thought a non-fiction book could hold my attention like this, but foer manages it easily - so finishing it seems like a doable thing. i’ve been living as a vegetarian for over two years now, but i feel like once i finish this book (even though foer is only giving information, not imparting his own opinions) i probably won’t be able to touch eggs, cheese and other animal products either. and i do love cheese.
.
i’m once again off to my nightshift. hope you’re enjoying your thursday - the weekend is almost here! have you read any of foer‘s books? 🎄

Republic Pictures movie mogul Herbert J. Yates merged Monogram, Liberty Films and Mascot Pictures in 1935 on what was the old Mack Sennett lot in Studio City. The studio became one of the busiest and most profitable in Hollywood’s Golden Era. Often knocked for its wafer-thin plots, Republic more than made up for it at the box-office. •
•
Behind the scenes, Yates was always keen to keep the ledgers in the black which often made film budgets impossibly tight.
•
Understanding what the public wanted, Republic would go onto churn out dozens of westerns, melodramas, cartoons and thrilling film serials on a monthly basis, utilising its sounds stages and sets that included a New York Street, cave set, miniature swimming pool and lush gardens. •
•
“Yates was scary as hell,” recalled Mildred, who appeared in half a dozen movies at the studio during the 1930s and 40s. “It was hard work and something of a shock coming from the comparative luxury across town at Metro (MGM)”.
•
Actors were often required for a crime drama on Monday and by Wednesday were riding the range. “He didn’t miss a beat” said Mildred of her boss. “Oh, Orstin! There was no waste. Everything was used and reused. I even had to share a hairbrush!”

i began listening to the #audiobook of #harrypotterandthephilosophersstone at work ... again. because i want to and i can. it’s wonderfully calming, makes the time almost fly by, fits the season and i love the narrator a lot. #jimdale has the perfect reading voice and does wonderful pitches and dialects and overall it’s just amazing, and if i sometimes mouth along with dale, because i basically know this book by heart, no one at work will ever realise.
.
i hope you’re having a good wednesday! which harry potter book is your favourite? i’ve always been very fond of #harrypotterandthechamberofsecrets. 🎄

You can only choose one book to hail as the greatest ever written. What do you pick?⠀
⠀
For many few years now my answer has been The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Here are some of the reasons why:⠀
⠀
🍁 An academic setting — all of my favourite books seem to be set at a school of some sort, at least in part. This one is a magical university.⠀
🍁 Magic that makes sense — I love a good magic system.⠀
🍁 Magic that doesn't make sense — because we all need a bit of mystery in our lives.⠀
🍁 Mystery — of many kinds! Seriously, I've been reading and writing fan theories on this book for years.⠀
🍁 A sequel — because it's the kind of book you never want to end. There's a third book that may or may not come out in the next twenty years...⠀
🍁 Diversity — fantasy isn't known for this, but Rothfuss creates a world that isn't entirely straight and white, and there are some amazing female characters!⠀
🍁 Music — this may be the core reason why this book touched my heart to the extent it has. No one writes about music like Rothfuss does, and I was shocked to find that he isn't a musician himself.⠀
⠀
If you're looking for a book to gift someone this Christmas, look no further than this one. If you haven't read it yourself, I'd recommend getting yourself a copy too.⠀
⠀
This bookmark was from my #inktober series. It is available as a print on my website, link in bio.⠀

Dziarska ferajna od @warszawski_kizior
z @tak_czytam na Pradze przygotowała największy kopiec książkowy, jaki - pod Bogiem - żem na oczy widział. Książkami ponadto, jadłem i napitkiem obdarowali. Względem tego złożyłem sygnatury, gdzie proszono i teraz wyzewnętrzniam Państwu Szanownym, co następuje: Tyrmandy z podpisami i ex librisami zakupywać można w dobrej, warsziaskiej księgarni. Serwus!

Book #4 of #nonfictionnovember.
.
This large coffee table sized book is a lovely illustrated micro history of New York City. 4 stars. #kisiwareads
“Oh, George was just a doll,” Mildred tells a journalist from The Guardian. Mildred has been invited as a special guest for a lunch to launch a George Cukor season at the BFI. The first in the event programme is his 1939 classic, "The Women". Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Mary Boland, Joan Fontaine and Marjorie Main lead an all-female cast.
•
“After my first take in the famous bathroom scene (Mildred played Crawford’s French maid, Helené), George put his arm gently around my shoulder and said, ‘Now Mildred dear, that was very good, but I would like you to try the scene again. I didn’t get the feeling in your eyes’. •
•
“Of course, he was right. I’m supposed to be a little irate at ‘Madame’ (Joan Crawford as Crystal Allen) who is obviously rather tiresome. Joan was the star, but you know what, she gave me a wink from that outrageous bathtub, and encouraged me to do the scene again, even though by now she was as wrinkled as hell from the cold bath water”.
•
“Did you socialise with Mr. Cukor?” asked another journalist.
•
“Well, he would host these marvellous soirées, Joan was almost always there, as was Billy Haines and Roz Russell. You know, his closest friends...” Mildred laughs at the memory. “George’s choice of waiting staff was always the same; usually these big beefy farm boys from the Midwest with their fingers in the caviar. George loved to surround himself by pretty things, even if they were rather rough around the edges”.

what’s the book on the very top of your christmas wishlist? i think currently im most excited to read #little by #edwardcarey and i already know my mum will give it to me, too, so i’m excited. on a related note: i haven’t bought a single christmas present yet and i feel awful, but i’m also feeling so uninspired. i’m the worst gift-giver in the world. maybe help me out here; what are you getting your parents and grandparents? mine are mostly non-readers so there goes the one idea i always have. great!
.
i’m having some burger king now, because why not, and then i’ll spend the rest of the evening reading. hope you’re enjoying your day!🎄

y tiritan, azules, los astros, a lo lejos". El viento de la noche gira en el cielo y canta.

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche. 
Yo la quise, y a veces ella también me quiso.

En las noches como ésta la tuve entre mis brazos.
La besé tantas veces bajo el cielo infinito.

Ella me quiso, a veces yo también la quería. 
Cómo no haber amado sus grandes ojos fijos.

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche. 
Pensar que no la tengo. Sentir que la he perdido.

Oir la noche inmensa, más inmensa sin ella. 
Y el verso cae al alma como al pasto el rocío.

Qué importa que mi amor no pudiera guardarla. 
La noche está estrellada y ella no está conmigo.

Eso es todo. A lo lejos alguien canta. A lo lejos. 
Mi alma no se contenta con haberla perdido.

Como para acercarla mi mirada la busca. 
Mi corazón la busca, y ella no está conmigo.

La misma noche que hace blanquear los mismos  árboles.
Nosotros, los de entonces, ya no somos los mismos.

Ya no la quiero, es cierto, pero cuánto la quise. 
Mi voz buscaba el viento para tocar su oído.

De otro. Será de otro. Como antes de mis besos.
Su voz, su cuerpo claro. Sus ojos infinitos.

Ya no la quiero, es cierto, pero tal vez la quiero.
Es tan corto el amor, y es tan largo el olvido.

Porque en noches como ésta la tuve entre mis  brazos,
mi alma no se contenta con haberla perdido.

Aunque éste sea el último dolor que ella me causa,
y éstos sean los últimos versos que yo le escribo. - Pablo Neruda, 20 poemas de amor y una canción desesperada ❤️ #bookstagram #booklover #bookreader #fantasticworlds #bookclubcollective #bookclub #bookescape #whattoread #autumnreads #bookphotography #artcollective #literaturelover #writer #wordlover #imagination #poesia #poetry #pabloneruda #poeta #veintepoemasdeamor #literatura #literaturaclasica #bookish #bookdreamer #instalibros

i’m finally, but very slowly getting back to part three of the #gemmadoyle trilogy by #libbantay, which concludes with #thesweetfarthing. i really want to finish this series before the year is over. have you any unfinished duologies, trilogies or longer series that you feel the need to complete this year as well?
.
i’m off to dinner with my grandparents and some family friends and then i’ll get to bed as soon as possible, because i have an annoyingly early start tomorrow morning. i don’t mind the waking up, but it’s so terrible having to walk to the train station when it’s dark and cold. hope you’re enjoying the new week! 🎄

November books: I’ve had a really good run of books recently 🍁🍂🦔 Every one a winner! I absolutely love Ali Smith’s abstract, tightly spun stories, and I can’t wait for Spring! I also read my first Joan Didion in November and I’m now obsessed - just got my hands on two more. There’s also a great doc on Joan on Netflix if you haven’t seen it - definitely worth a watch #autumn #winter #bookstagram #bookpost #playitasitlays #joandidion #alismith #femaleauthors #authors #winterreads #autumnreads

“Knitting Pearls” was my read today.  I was pretty sure it would give me the urge to pull out some wool and start a project.  You know I’m like the mouse in “If You Give A Mouse a Cookie”.🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve enjoyed reading the essays, but I’m going to agree with others, I enjoyed the first anthology a bit more.  With that said it is a good read. Enjoy! #booksandshares #bookstagram #booksandwool #bookthoughts #bookworm #autumnreads

So I finished Stalking Jack the Ripper, and it was sooo good. I did see the plot twist coming from miles away. But that was fine haha. So 4,5 stars for this wonderful book. 😍
•
So now it's time to finally dive into the Leigh Bardugo books! I think I'll have to start with the Grisha trilogy first. Let me know what your thoughts are about this series! ✨
•
Q: Which book surprised you this year? 🎊

I really enjoyed ‘The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy’! I don’t think this is the end of the series, at least I really hope not because there was a LOT left unanswered...

have you read any classics this year? if so, what’s been your favourite?
.
i definitely loved #wutheringheights beyond measure. i thought #emilybrontës writing to be just beautiful - eloquent and captivating. and the story is so unique und takes such unexpected turns as well. i also loved #wehavealwayslivedinthecastle, which i’d consider a classic. #shirleyjackson held my attention from the very first sentence onwards and i do hope to explore more of her work in 2019.
.
we’re celebrating my grandma‘s 70th birthday today, so the whole family is around and there’s lots of food and cake and i truly want to take a break and read a little. i hope you’re enjoying your sunday! 🎄

It’s here! Guys, I’ve been in love with the Shadowhunter Chronicles since I first discovered them in 2011 and I can’t believe how far it’s comes since then. -
-
From the City of Bones movie, to the Shadowhunters TV show, to Magnus and Alec getting their own story in the near future. -
-
I’m so grateful for the humor and adventure these books have brought into my life. I didn’t know a character could be so hugely multidimensional until I met Jace Wayland*. I didn’t know I could actually kind of appreciate and value the heartache a love triangle can bring seeing as I usually hate them but Clare found my one loophole — make them all love each other equally. Long story short, I’m so excited to see where The Dark Artifices will conclude. I’m so happy to finally have this beauty in my hands (and on my bookshelf 😉). Check out my story for my unboxing! -

i spent the whole morning and part of the afternoon outside, watching a big sport event that happens each december in my small town. my fingers are only now beginning to warm up again; the wind was brutal today. apart from that, i’ve been enjoying a lazy saturday, though.
.
featured above is a book that my mum got me for st. nicholas day. in germany it’s quite common to give little presents on this day, and lots of chocolate-y sweets. it’s a german edition of #yuvalnoahharari‘s #sapiens: #abriefhistoryofhumankind. i’ve been eyeing the book for a while, but it’s a bit daunting, because it’s huge and non-fiction and i’m always afraid i’ll get bored when i attempt books like that. have you read sapiens? how did you like it? 🎄

#thewickeddeep by #sheaernshaw. 2.0/5.0 stars ⭐️
.
sadly, oh so sadly, this was a really mediocre read and i’m so disappointed. the premise to this novel was amazing and eye catching, the execution was horribly lacking in lots of ways, though. i actually loathed the writing, which i feel bad for saying, because someone put their heart and soul into this book, but here’s my honest opinion for you: the wicked deep is not the first book i’ve read that’s written in a very simplistic, stereotypical style, but this time around, for whatever reason, it annoyed me terribly. i felt at times ernshaw was compiling words just for the sake of it, just to fill up her pages - here’s what i mean in a few examples: who folds soaking wet clothes? who puts on a jumper to run after someone, but foregoes shoes? how can a character have thin, straight her, but then move her “mass” of hair over her shoulder? am i being nitpicky? maybe. but truly, there was no sense to some of the actions and descriptions - in particular of the main character and especially after considering some of the twists and turns this book has taken. it just wasn’t believable. apart from all that, i think the editor of the novel did a rather poor job, too. there were quite some spelling mistakes in the beginning of the book and i think my aforementioned examples should have caught attention, too. all in all, i expected this to be way more atmospheric and grand. it was an entertaining, diverting story for a while there, i’ll give you that, but it didn’t impress me at all.
.
do you sometimes feel you’re too harsh in your criticism of books (or other forms of art)? just now, for example, i’m thinking i’m being rather vicious; but then again, this is my honest opinion and that’s what i intend to express with any review i write. i guess being honest isn’t always compatible with being nice and sweet. what’s your opinion on the wicked deep, if you’ve read it?🎄

Q: Do you love Outlander? ♥️

I'm currently finishing up Stalking Jack the Ripper soon and then I will probably start with HP and the Prisioner of Azkaban. 💀

Mystery Tag ⌚🕶️ Mystery and detective books are those witty enough to play with the mind of the reader and grant the exact dose of intrigue, enough to keep you hooked to the story, but without revealing the enigma. 
I can say that the best mystery books I've ever read are those from Agatha Christie. The Queen of Crime does never disappoint me. However, there are several detective books I'd like to give a try to like "Falcó" or "A Study in Scarlet". This is not my favourite genre, but I think that classics like these are worth reading. > What do you think about mystery books? > What have been your favorite? 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞 And here I present you my #seventhingsiloveinabook challenge

❄️December is here!!! Went to the Köln Christmas market last weekend and got the full-on Christmas vibes 🎄💖
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of the books in my December TBR are:
◽️The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell (🎧)
▫️The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (📖)
◽️The Valley by Steven Hawke (💻)
▫️Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling (🎧)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a mood reader I never usually make TBRs, but I’m quite behind on my ARCs and I think I might try to focus on that next month as well — on top of reducing my physical unread books, of course 😅
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wish me luck for the last month of 2018! 💓🤞

another exhausting thursday is, in part, over now. i’m done with uni for the day, but almost off to nightshift now. i’ll squeeze a quick trip to the christmas market in between, because i’m dead tired tonight wether i take an hours nap now or not. maybe some mulled wine takes the edge off (or makes work infinitely worse). i can’t wait for christmas break and also for a new semester and another timetable, but that will have to wait till next spring.
.
are you a fan of #madeleinelengle’s #awrinkelintime series? i’ve only ever read the first book (in the confines of a not long lasting bookclub) and wasn’t into the story at all. i guess i see the appeal, but neither plot nor characters made me want to return to this timeless children’s classics series. i also haven’t seen the movie yet, though it would interest me to see how they translated this story onto screen. how about you? are you a fan of the books and/or the new movie?
.
i’ll enjoy my mulled wine now! good evening to you! 🎄

It’s hard to focus on work when you just want to read about murder all day. (These are the sorts of sentences that worry people, but it’s TRUE.)

Hola grupete 🙋 voy a empezar en un rato RETRATO DE UN ASESINO.Crimen en Navidad de la escritora Anne Meredith.
Gracias a @albaeditorial . . .«Adrian Gray nació en mayo de 1862 y murió violentamente a manos de uno de sus propios hijos el día de Navidad de 1931. El crimen fue espontáneo e impremeditado, y el asesino se quedó mirando primero el arma dejada en la mesa, luego el cadáver, a la sombra de las cortinas de tapiz, aún sin miedo, sino incrédulo y sin palabras»: así comienza Retrato de un asesino(1934), una de las primeras muestras de novela policiaca «invertida», donde la identidad del asesino es conocida desde la primera página y el suspense se elabora a partir de sus coartadas y de la incógnita de si será descubierto o conseguirá escapar. Al mismo tiempo, la novela pertenece a la noble tradición inglesa de los crímenes en Navidad, punto de partida, por lo general, para un siniestro retrato de familia. Anne Meredith no desaprovecha ninguno de estos elementos y se adentra en la psicología criminal creando un gran personaje de asesino artista que entronca con otra conocida tradición británica, el esteticismo decadentista.

El crimen fue espontáneo e impremeditado, y el asesino se quedó mirando primero el arma dejada en la mesa, luego el cadáver, a la sombra de las cortinas de tapiz, aún sin miedo, sino incrédulo y sin palabras»: así comienza Retrato de un asesino(1934), una de las primeras muestras de novela policiaca «invertida», donde la identidad del asesino es conocida desde la primera página y el suspense se elabora a partir de sus coartadas y de la incógnita de si será descubierto o conseguirá escapar. Al mismo tiempo, la novela pertenece a la noble tradición inglesa de los crímenes en Navidad, punto de partida, por lo general, para un siniestro retrato de familia. Anne Meredith no desaprovecha ninguno de estos elementos y se adentra en la psicología criminal creando un gran personaje de asesino artista que entronca con otra conocida tradición británica, el esteticismo decadentista. #retratodeunasesino  #theportraitofamurderer  #crimen  #crimenennavidad  #englishbooks  #englishwriters  #inglaterra  #england  #novelanegra  #novelapoliciaca  #thrillerpolicial  #lectoresinfinitos  #lecturadeotoño  #lecturadenavidad  #lecturarecomendada  #novelarecomendada  #megustaleer  #leeresvivir  #sumergidoentrelibros80  #autumnreads  #autumn  #otoño  #otoñolector  #feliznavidad  #merrychristmas 
Anything better than a lazy morning of breakfast in bed with a good book? I'm going to try and recreate this coziness this weekend.

QOTD: What's one new genre you'd like to read next year? 
I think I'm going to try and read more nonfiction, specifically history books. I know, super exciting!

Uhm fall is almost over but okay, this is my fall #tbr and I have actually read one book from it. Jeej... I need to read 14 more books to reach my reading goal so I think I might have to accept that I am not going to reach my goal this year. #sadtimes

Day 2 of the #OwlCrate November Box Photo Challenge is GOPAF & Purple! The theme this month was Rise From the Ashes.
📃🔥📃🔥📃
I'm really excited about this month's book choice. And this cover...😮 Included was also this sticker, so I need to decide where to put it. What do you guys do with stickers aside from putting them on your laptop??

i’m trying to set some reading intentions for 2019, because obviously i want to start strong and decided into the new year!
.
so here’s a general overview of where i’m focusing my attention:
- the unread books on my shelves, like the one pictures above
- classics, for general education, my conscience or whatever
- new releases, because i’m just never up to date
- all the pretty books that catch my attention throughout the year
.
really, though, i’ll probably just go with the flow. that has always worked for me and i’m not the strongest in sticking to (bookish) intentions. what are your rough reading plans for the next year? 🎄

“He saw him standing on the shore of the Vistula Spit, scanning the sea with his binoculars – ‘When are they going to come and get us?’ – while behind him the refugee wagons rumbled from the east to west and west to east. Jonathan pounded the armrest with his fist and the words kept hammering in his brain – all for nothing! ALL FOR NOTHING! He didn’t mean the death of his mother or of his father, who’d had to ‘bite the dust,’ or the sofa beds his uncle manufactured, but the suffering of all creatures, the flesh lashed to the stake, the calf he had seen bound and gagged, the torture chamber in the Marienburg, the shuffling procession of mankind beneath the condemning sky.
It's all for nothing, he thought again and again. And: Who’s to blame?”
Homeland by Walter Kempowski (Granta, 2018)

I’ll be honest. Before I received Homeland from the publishers, I had never heard of Walter Kempowski before. However, the good thing about reading literature in translation is that you discover voices from all over the world, not just from the English-speaking and writing world. 
In Homeland, the story is set in 1988, pre-Berlin Wall fall. We follow Jonathan Fabrizius, a writer who goes on a press road trip from Hamburg to former East Prussia/Poland and ends up revisiting the homeland he never really knew. 
A common theme that runs throughout the work is an existential angst associated with the futility of war, violence, suffering, and death. 
Reading this work, I was also sharply reminded of my short story “Homecoming” in We Mark Your Memory that explores similar themes of identity, homeland, and belonging. 
He’s definitely a writer I’d like to read more of. Have you ever read him? What did you think?

I did my waiting! 2 years of it(actually feels like 12), in America(Azkaban)!

I’m so happy that I got my hands on Queen of Air and Darkness today(shoutout to Shreya cuz she has to wait until this weekend to get it). •
I won’t post any spoilers and you better not put any spoilers in comments or dms(yes I got spoiled once on a major release *sad face*).
Also the cover looks so good with this lighting ahhh.

Well hello everyone, how come it's December already?! I'm currently dipping in and out of "Friday Black" by @king_nk recently published by #rivverrunbooks. Although I must say I don't think I truly understand some of the short stories in this book (especially as white privilidged woman, also not American, so some references will pass me by, even though they might be obvious to others!), those I GET, are really terrific, they make me pause and think about stuff I never thought about. The stories are funny, strange, disturbing, sad and intense or all of the above.. I'm so glad I've got to read them. 📚📚📚📚📚 Zbiór opowiadań, z których nie wszystkie może rozumiem, ale te które rozumiem, robią wrażenie. 📚📚📚📚📚 #nanakwameadjeibrenyah #fridayblack #riverrunbooks #arc #NetGalley #shortstories #currentlyreading

Juro solemnemente que no me he enterado de nada😌. Eso fue lo que pensé al terminar "Poeta en Nueva York".
.
Este año leí "Bodas de sangre", también de Federico García Lorca, y lo disfruté. 
Pero pasar del teatro a la poesía con este autor ha sido demasiado, soy consciente de que no lo he disfrutado porque mis conocimientos de poesía son mínimos.
.
No me enteraba de nada, no le veía ningún sentido 😫. ¿A alguien más le ha pasado? ¿Con qué clásico os habéis decepcionado? -------------------------------------------------------------#bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramespaña #book #read #libros #leer #bookaddict #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophile #bookpic #bookphotography #readersofinstagram #bookcoholic #bookgasm #1984 #georgeorwell #poetaennuevayork #federicogarcialorca #clasicos #autumnreads #fairylights

i’m finally making progress with #thewickeddeep by #sheaernshaw. at this point, i’m about halfway through the novel - it reads quite easily and if i had some more time to spare and wouldn’t fall asleep as soon as i get into bed at night i’d be through it in a day or two. the story still intrigues me very much, though i’m already pretty certain about some of the twists and turns that await the characters. admittedly, i’m not very impressed with ernshaw’s writing; it’s rather plain and frugal and speckled with stereotypical phrases and descriptions.
.
earlier today i was tagged by @bibliokleptomaniac to post a picture of an #openbook. fittingly, i took just one such picture today, so - mission accomplished.
.
what are you reading currently? something festive and christmas themed, perhaps? i’m not big on seasonal reads myself, so books like these rarely make it on my wishlist.🎄

To naprawdę pocieszające że gdy mam zły dzień i najchętniej zakopałabym się pod biurkiem na najbliższy rok czekają na mnie małe przyjemności. Zupełnie się tego nie spodziewając listonosz zapukał dziś do moich drzwi z nową pozycją od @moondrive.shop 
Już się nie mogę doczekać aż się za nią zabiorę. Jednak musi jeszcze chwilę poczekać bo przecież drugim najlepszym polepszaczem humoru jest kino w dobrym towarzystwie. Dziś będzie to "Narodziny gwiazdy". Więc ja uciekam do kina, a Wam życzę miłego wieczoru 😘

It's the penultimate #mentalhealthmonday guys! 😅
It's weird saying that when this year has been so slow for me... It's felt more like 5 years rolled into one... 😣
.
Now, I don't really talk much on here about my mental health... Or my health in general really... Maybe I'll post about the odd thing here and there, but I try and keep things separate..
And you may think it odd I've paired up The Priory of the Orange Tree by @say_shannon with the MHM tag, but after her recent tweets over the last few days regarding her anxiety, I felt like I might talk about mine... 😊
.
My life this year has been incredibly difficult, and even though I wish it was getting better, it seems to be beating me whilst I'm down. I recently got diagnosed with anxiety and depression, and anxiety is my worst enemy...
And the past few weeks have been the worst...
My boyfriend, the person I rely on to keep me sane, has a new job 2 hours away, and has moved to be closer. And that sucks. And my mental health has taken a major hit because of it... (Hence my mini breaks now and then) 😕
I'm having the learn to be kinder to myself and ignore the voices in my head. But it's difficult. So I've stepped back from my "commitments" to try and save myself a little bit. And that's okay! It's a good thing to do when you're feeling down!
So if you feel down, or need a break, take one! I promise we don't mind ❤️

which books do you plan on finishing before the end of the year? as always, i’m #currentlyreading way too many books and i’ll be honest: i won’t finish all of them this year, which is a bit disappointing and also quite annoying. but i promised myself i would finish at least some of these books. among them: #northandsouth by #elizabethgaskell, #aroomofonesown by #virginiawoolf, #thewickeddeep by #sheaernshaw and #thesweetfarthing by #libbabray. so, i guess that’s my december tbr. what’s on yours?
.
speaking of reading and finishing books, i’ll get back to that now. i’m in a flow right now, enjoying my additional day off, so i’ll better use it! 🎄

November wrap up minus Sharp Objects which I returned to a friend and Autumn which I loaned to a friend. Last month I enjoyed pretty much everything except Today Will Be Different. Standouts included Autumn which was a five-star read for me and An Anonymous Girl and The Autobiography of Gucci Mane. I'm hoping to up my reading this month to make my way through my reading goal of 52 books this year!

Recent reading. Not done a wrap-up for a couple of months because I had a big old reading slump and things were patchy. Also read Goodbye Vitamin but have passed that on to a friend. 📚

Got back into it with Transcription by Kate Atkinson which was compelling, clever and witty 💕

Normal People made me vaguely sad and empty, in a way I can’t articulate. I’m from Northern Ireland rather than the Republic, live in England and am at least a generation older than the protagonists but some things really struck a chord. Well-written but I’m unsure of my final thoughts yet 💚

Hunger is visceral, at times uncomfortable reading, but I heartily recommend. Challenging, perceptive and above all, honest 🖤

Broadsword Calling Danny Boy. Loved it. Made me laugh out loud and love Clint Eastwood even more. What else do you want from a book? ❤️ #bookstagrammer #booksread #novemberreads  #bookstack #readingnovember #bookstagram #books #bookshelfie #readabook #instabooks #autumnreads #booksbooksbooks #bookstagramuk #kateatkinson #sallyrooney #roxanegay #geoffdyer #booknook #reader #lovebooks

✧ Can we talk collections? ✧⠀

So I am a total Nancy Drew fan. I know, I know. I’ve heard it all. I know the criticisms of plot and character. I. DONT. CARE. Nancy is brave, inquisitive, and a born leader. She was ahead of her time. Women belong in the crime solving world; I am living proof of that. ⠀
.⠀
I have been collecting old / vintage editions for years, but not seriously. I usually only keep one of each and pay a few dollars at fleet markets. But recently I’ve been thinking that I might take this more seriously! Looking for first editions, extra chapter editions and secondary covers. Is this a good thing?! Or am I getting in way over my head?!⠀

Can you believe that Queen of Air and Darkness comes out in three days?!
This is a very interesting moment for me because before TDA I used to binge read Cassandra Clare’s books because all of them were already out at the time but the thing with TDA is that I have been reading it over the course of a few years and as the books were being released which I had never experienced with Cassie’s books before. And now that this trilogy is coming to a close it’s been a bit emotional(it doesn’t help that I’m sick lol). Also I was 12 when I was first introduced to Emma and Julian and they were also 12(City of Heavenly Fire). And now I’m going to read Queen of Air and Darkness and be the same age as Kit and Ty(Kitty if you will). I think that it is very symbolic and meaningful that I got to read about Cassandra’s characters my same age since the age of 12 and got to relate to them in certain ways.

"Als sie den schweren Deckel öffnete, war es ihr, als drängten ihr fast vergessene Stimmen entgegen, als blickten sie vertraute Gesichter an. Wie zerlesen sie alle waren... 'Ist es nicht seltsam, wie viel dicker ein Buch wird, wenn man es mehrmals liest?', hatte Mo gefragt, als sie sich an Meggies letztem Geburtstag noch einmal jedes ihrer altvertrauten Bücher angesehen hatten. 'Als würde jedes Mal etwas zwischen den Seiten kleben bleiben. Gefühle, Gedanken, Geräusche, Gerüche... Und wenn du dann nach vielen Jahren wieder in dem Buch blätterst, entdeckst du dich selbst darin, etwas jünger, etwas anders, als hätte das Buch dich aufbewahrt, wie eine gepresste Blüte, fremd und vertraut zugleich.'... - [Cornelia Funke: 'Tintenblut']

“Have no fear of perfection - you’ll never reach it” - Salvador Dali
.
Did you know Salvador Dali wrote a novel? It’s called “Hidden Faces” and was published in 1944. As soon as I heard about it I knew I had to pick it up and the time has come - I present to you my first December read. 📖
.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday! ❤️

✧❅Winter Reading❅✧⠀
.⠀
I’m pretty excited about this stack! But first, check out my Autumn review in my story for my ratings on last season! My winter goal is to post more reviews, and thoughts on books as I’m going through them. ⠀
.⠀
These books are my main TBR this winter, but will be punctuated with others as I pick them up (or get as Christmas gifts!) ⠀
.⠀
Have you read any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts 🖤⠀

#currentlyreading  this wonderful book by @rebekahnbryan 💓Brit With the Pink Hair💓
inspired by Jane Austen's Emma.
In this story, our heroine Brit is a rock-n-roll socialite with magenta hair and rockin' agenda.
And look at this gorgeous cover! My photo doesn't do it justice. Go check it out for yourself.

“The heat of the sun seemed to split the earth open”  Laurent Gaudé, The House of Scorta 💛 ~

A small, lyrical Goncourt-winning book. Over 100-year story of five generations put in a frame of no much more than 200 pages. Heritage, dignity, pride, honour and forsaken love…  And continuous struggle with poverty and self-perpetuating stigma. "Smoke, Don Salvatore, it will do us both good." Worth reading not for a plot, which is extremely, almost absurdaly simple, but for a unique, mythic sens and atmosphere.  And that captivating charm of Italy… burning sun, olive gardens, smell of dried tomatoes... Delicious! 
_________________________________________________ „Moje życie to ziemia wyschnięta od słońca i pragnienie morza.” Laurent Gaudé, Słońce Scortów 💛 ~ 
Uhonorowana przed laty Nagrodą Goncourtów, maleńka książeczka na jeden dwa wieczory. Saga? Może z definicji, bo zmieściła losy pięciu pokoleń włoskiego rodu Scortów. Ale to saga wielce nietypowa. Opis wędrówki założyciela rodu na objuczonym ośle przez wypaloną słońcem ziemię Apulii zajmuje więcej niż opis jego burzliwego życia. Przypowieść to raczej niż powieść. I w treści, i formie.  O zmaganiach z losem, naznaczeniu piętnem,  społecznym wykluczeniu. Język prosty, ale liryczny. I dla nastroju właśnie warto ją przeczytać, bo sama historia, choć twardo osadzona w realiach jałowej, spalonej włoskiej ziemi, jest raczej baśniowa i symboliczna.  Czuć żar palącego słońca, kojący cień gajów oliwnych, zapach suszonych pomidorów. W tym upale sączą się uniwersalne prawdy o znojach życia, dziedzictwie, godności, honorze, dumie i miłości. Ładne to. 💛 ~
