Vamos de mestre King hoje. O premiado Escuridão Total Sem Estrelas, que consiste em contos sobre pessoas que se encontram em situações desesperadas. E, como a maioria de seus livros, esse também é bastante tenso, chegando a causar desconforto em alguns momentos... Ainda assim, vale muito a pena!! 👉🏽Sinopse: Vencedor dos prêmios BRAM STOKER e BRITISH FANTASY. Na ausência da luz, o mundo assume formas sombrias, distorcidas, tenebrosas.
Em 1922, o agricultor Wilfred e o filho, Hank, precisam decidir do que é mais fácil abrir mão: das terras da família ou da esposa e mãe. No conto Gigante do volante, após ser estuprada por um estranho e deixada à beira da morte, Tess, uma autora de livros de mistério, elabora uma vingança que vai deixá-la cara a cara com um lado desconhecido de si mesma. Já em Extensão justa, Dave Streeter tem um câncer terminal e faz um pacto com um estranho vendedor. Mas será que para salvar a própria vida vale a pena destruir a de outra pessoa? E, em Um bom casamento, uma caixa na garagem pode dizer mais a Darcy Anderson sobre seu marido do que os vinte anos que eles passaram juntos. Os personagens dos quatro contos de Stephen King passam por momentos de escuridão total, quando não existe nada — bom senso, piedade, justiça ou estrelas — para guiá-los. Suas histórias representam o modo como lidamos com o mundo e como o mundo lida conosco. São narrativas fortes e, cada uma a seu modo, profundamente chocantes." #livroprosaecia#livroseleituras#livros#bookaddict#booktips#booktime#bookshelf#stephenking#literate#livrosdesuspense#livrododia#lovebooks#loucosporlivros#lendomuito#livrosecafe#lecturarecomendada#dicadeleitura#librosnuevos#libros#instalivros#instabooks#instalibros#viciadosemlivros#viajandonoslivros#stephenkingsit#stephenkingfan
I’m so excited to be starting A Darker Shade Of Magic by @veschwab for the A Darker Shade Of Readalongs being hosted by @mrcommonspence
The first live chat is this Saturday and emegerrrd it’s going to be amazing!! #adsor
I’m really going to have to pick up my reading pace if I want to get a blackout for the Seattle library summer bingo. This book is for the environment square. It’s the second book in the Maddaddam trilogy and so far I’m liking it better than the first in the trilogy, Oryx and Crake.
What a pleasant surprise. Into the Light was an audiobook I have had sitting in my TBR library after I bought it on a sale more than a year ago.
Sara wakes up in a in a hospital with no memory of how she got there or her life before. She has a loving, but sometimes brutal husband and is apparently part of a cult called The Light.
I’m guessing Aleatha Romig and I just have different beliefs on what kind of behaviors can be forgiven and overcome in a relationship.
This book ends on a cliffhanger that just can’t be forgotten. I could not stop listening once I started, and now I am wondering just how long I can wait to read the sequel!!! Very good book. I am anxious to see how this story is resolved. #intothelight#aleatharomig#cult#thriller#dysfunctionalrelationship#audible
Dress me up and watch me die. •
Hope you guys have had a good day!!! These are my current reads and I’m absolutely LOVING Cockblock!!!! Ugghhhhh!!!! It’s amazing!!! •
What are you currently reading?
Happy Release Day @cute_chameleon!!!!! Thank you so much for sending me this gorgeous gem of a card in the mail! 😍 It was such a nice surprise to find this waiting in my mail box for me just in time for release day, so of course I had to share it with everyone. I am so excited for Shimmy Bang Sparkle and CANNOT wait to read it! 📚
You can find the synopsis down below 👇 and if you want to read it for yourself, you can find all the purchase links on my blog. 📚 The link to my blog is in my bio.
To catch a thief…or fall for one?
All Nick Norton wants is to stay on the straight and narrow…and never get caught stealing again. Then he lays eyes on her: Stella Peretti—100 percent sexy and absolutely irresistible. Especially when he sees her smooth moves lifting a two-karat diamond. Nick realizes he’s found the sparkling woman of his dreams—one so perfect for him it’s almost criminal.
The Shimmy Shimmy Bangs are master jewel thieves who are planning the heist of the century. And Shimmy leader, Stella, isn’t about to let anyone—even if he is a hunky, tatted-up studmuffin—get in her way. But when two of her girls are put out of commission, Stella realizes that Nick isn’t just a red-hot distraction. He might be the answer to her pilfering prayers.
Now, Nick and Stella are putting everything on the line for one last job. But when two thieves have this much chemistry, it’s only a matter of time before somebody’s heart gets stolen.
Sounds amazing, doesn't it?! 😍
P.S. My bookshelves arrived today so I may be MIA while I get my room together. I will be back though and cannot wait to start sharing some shelfies! 😄
Day 21: winter theme ❄️ #imperfectlyperfectaug18
Whoa winter! Let’s not jump ahead here. Not ready for the snow yet lol The Girl with Glass Feet was a pretty good read and was set in the depth of winter. The other two books I haven’t read yet but now I have two books to read when winter sets in! ⛄️-Mackenzie
"A coragem de não agradar" é um livro que envolve filosofia e psicologia.
Escrito por Ichiro Kishimi e Fumitake Koga, o livro utiliza das ideias e ensinamentos do filósofo e psicólogo Alfred Adler para ensinar que a vida é simples e a felicidade está ao alcance de todos. -
Se você gosta de se apaixonar por personagens e viajar para lugares diferentes enquanto está lendo, não recomendo que o leia. "A coragem de não agradar" é um livro de ensinamentos e questionamentos, ou seja, de autoajuda. ⠀
Eu gostei muito e realmente me interessei sobre o assunto. Até hoje me pego refletindo pelos ensinamentos.
As ideias de Adler são fascinantes! Uma pena que elas não sejam simples de colocar em prática. Os argumentos da psicologia adleriana são fortes e jogam a realidade na nossa cara. Realmente é preciso coragem para colocar tudo em prática. A vida e o mundo seriam bem mais fáceis se tudo que é dito no livro fosse colocado em execução.
Posso definir o meu pensamento sobre os ensinamentos utilizando um fragmento da obra:
"Jovem: Como teoria entendo. Para o meu cérebro racional, faz sentido. Mas minhas emoções não conseguem acompanhar um argumento tão arrogante."
18°) "O teatro de Sabbath" - Philip Roth: Depois de 3 meses finalmente concluí. Um livro que oscila entre a prosa aguda e ás vezes árida do já saudoso Roth com momentos de puro deslumbramento com reflexões sobre vida, morte, envelhecimento e as pessoas que vamos perdendo pelo caminho. Ah e claro, sem falar nos trechos cheios de sacanagem que fazem o leitor olhar para o lado pra se certificar que a vovózinha ao lado no ônibus não vai acabar desmaiando. Um livro que só tende a ganhar com o tempo e com a releitura.

🍁Is it too soon to start decorating for fall?🍁
I’m starting to get that itch. That same kind of itch I had when summer started and I wanted to read all things summery. As the weather cools down infinitesimally and the days get shorter, I’m feeling the pull to drag out all of my Stephen King books and choose a spooky TBR for October. I want to find all of my autumnal reads and create a cozy reading stack, light a yummy fall candle, bring out my snuggly blankets, and curl up with a good book. Come on autumn!!!
New book to check out. I’m starting to get into a Star Wars kick after finishing Ahsoka so let’s see how I like A New Dawn. May have started it on kindle and decided that I needed it in book form it was already so good. I kinda want to keep this one in physical form, I can feel it.
"𝐈'𝐯𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐦𝐞𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮, 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐱."

#FromHereToYou by @thejamiemcguire is AVAILABLE NOW! Get ready to SWOON, my friends, because from what I’ve read so far...I’m in LOVE! A big THANK YOU to @foreverromancebooks for this gorgeous paperback! Have you picked up your copy yet?
As Darby Dixon sits in a tiny Texas church bathroom on her wedding day holding a positive pregnancy test, she realizes that marrying her fiancé would be the worst decision of her life. She's never been very good at standing up for herself, but she'll sure as hell stand up for her baby. With very little cash and a ton of courage, she flees town to take a new name and start a new life.
As a Marine, Scott "Trex" Trexler worked in the most treacherous, corrupt, war-torn places on earth. With his new top-secret security job, he finally has a chance to return to the one place he's felt at peace: Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The moment Trex checks in at the hotel where she's working, Darby knows he's dangerous. He may want her to think he's another hotshot firefighter, along with all the others battling the nearby mountain blaze, but something doesn't add up. No way will she get involved with another man she can't fully trust - and Trex clearly isn't telling her everything. As Darby's ex gets closer and closer to finding her, both she and Trex will soon find out that what you don't know can hurt you.
Happy Pub Day to Something Borrowed, Something Blood Soaked by Christa Carmen! Thanks so much for the book - the cover of this book is 🔥🔥 and I can't wait to devour these thirteen stories of horror! #ladiesofhorrorfiction
Book: The Last Time I Lied
Book of the month: July 2018
Started: August 13th - August 16th
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 Stars
Why I chose it: This book was all the talk for July, i kept hearing incredible things about it, so I added it as an extra for my August box 👻😲
Plot: the protagonist Emma Davis was 13 during her first summer at camp nightingale, when Vivian Allison and Natalie disappeared in the middle of the night. Now, 15 years later she returns once again to camp, surrounded by the air of secrecy and whispers, controversy and conflict. She shares her old cabin with three new girls, Miranda, Krystal, and Sasha. Emma can’t shake the ghosts of her past, and it’s starting to haunt her present as well... 📖📖
Picking up this book was essentially instantly being transported back to summer camp. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve got mixed memories of camp, both good and bad. This book was extremely well written, both in the aspect of the overarching mystery, the simultaneous parallels, and the dramatic reveal at the end. I was continuously surprised, which doesn’t happen much. It’s a must read, both for those who have fond camp memories, and those who have never been to camp but love a good mystery.
