Selam millet!🌿 Açlık Oyunları’nı duymayan yoktur. Aranızda bazıları hem filmlerini izlemiş hem de kitaplarını okumuş olabilir veya sadece filmlerini izlemiş/sadece kitaplarını okumuş olanlar da olabilir ama bir kesim daha var ki -umuyorum az değilizdir- ne kitaplarını okumuş ne de filmlerini izlemiş ama “Aa, Jennifer Lawrence oynamıyor mu ya o filmde? Hani sarı saçlı olup da filmde kahverengi saçlı olan kız?” Evet bayanlar baylar, ben o tayfadanım🙋🏼♀️ Teyzemin önerisiyle -ve kendisine burdan da teşekkür etmek istiyorum o daha önceden okumuş ama bana kitaplarını almak istedi😍❤️ @yeliz_minareci - Açlık Oyunları serisine bu ay inşallah başlayacağım💃🏼 (ayı yarıladık bile ama olsun çaktırmayın😜) Eğer bu seriyi okuduysanız düşüncelerinizi yoruma yazar mısınız?💙 #maebookmark (Dipnot: Fotoğrafta yer alan tombik elleri sevilesice kuzenim olur kendileri😍 ona da burdan teşekkürlerimi sunuyorum❤️)
You know, you spend your whole life feeling like you don’t quite fit in anywhere. And then you walk into a room one day, whether it’s at university or an office or some kind of club, and you just go, ‘Ah. There they are.’ And suddenly you feel at home.” .
Convinced that if she wished hard enough, good things would finally happen.” .
Sometimes, she told herself, life was a series of obstacles that just had to be negotiated, possibly through sheer act of will. She stared out at the muddy blue of the endless sea, gulped in the air, lifted her chin, and decided that she could survive this. She could survive most things. It was nobody’s right to be happy, after all.” ― Jojo Moyes, One Plus One

Bran: "Robb adamın cesurca öldüğünü söylüyor; Jon'sa korku içinde öldü diyor. Bir adam korkusuna rağmen cesur olamaz mı?".
"Bir adamın gerçekten cesur olabileceği tek an korktuğu andır" diye yanıtladı babası.
"Benim silahım zekam. Erkek kardeşimin kılıcı var, Kral Robert'in savaş baltası var ve benim de zekam... ve zekanın keskin kalabilmesi için kitaplar gerekli. Tıpkı bir kılıcın keskin kalabilmesi için biley taşına gerek olduğu gibi. İşte bu yüzden bu kadar çok okuyorum Kar".
"Good books are friendly things to own.
If you are busy they will wait.
They will not call you on the phone
Or wake you if the hour is late.
They stand together row by row,
Upon the low shelf or the high.
But if you’re lonesome this you know:
You have a friend or two nearby.
The fellowship of books is real.
They’re never noisy when you’re still.
They won’t disturb you at your meal.
They’ll comfort you when you are ill.
The lonesome hours they’ll always share.
When slighted they will not complain.
And though for them you’ve ceased to care
Your constant friends they’ll still remain.
Good books your faults will never see
Or tell about them round the town.
If you would have their company
You merely have to take them down.
They’ll help you pass the time away,
They’ll counsel give if that you need.
He has true friends for night and day
Who has a few good books to read."

“I felt I was about to say something, that the words were on their way, I just wasn’t quite sure which ones they were going to be. And when they arrived it was as if they had arranged themselves, that I wasn’t in charge of them, yet they were still born of the clearest logic.” -Jo Nesbø, Midnight Sun
Midnight Sun is the sequel to Blood on Snow, however, the main characters are different. The similarities between the two books are based on the secondary characters, whom you will have met in Blood on Snow. I recently discovered Jo Nesbø’s writing thanks to Abby at @crimebythebook and couldn’t be happier that I did. He is an amazing author and every book I’ve read of his completely draws me in. Midnight Sun follows main character, Jon, as he flees his home to an isolated area of Norway after betraying The Fisherman, Oslo’s biggest crime lord (and his boss). No one betrays The Fisherman and lives to tell the tale... Although seemingly, this has all the markings of a violent thriller, Nesbø actually shows us his softer side (though still peppered with the Nordic noir that we love) - which somehow works brilliantly in this story. Unsurprisingly, Nesbø lived up to his reputation. I finished the book in one sitting and would totally recommend it to all of you!
Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at a friend’s wedding. She’s planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple: Keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Will this one night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
GIVEAWAY: Tag your book bestie in the comments below and you both could win an ebook copy of Vegas Love! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS
- Arundhati Roy
"They all crossed into forbidden territory. They all tampered with the laws that lay down who should be loved and how. And how much."
In terms of prose style, this book is magnificent! By the end of the book, I was completely in awe of the writing style, just awesome.
Storyline is also quite interesting, the story jumps back & forth which makes you really pay attention to what is happening. And the family relationships are explored sooo well: beautiful times as well as ugly times. Estha, Rahel & Ammu are 🌻❤
GOODREADS: The year is 1969. In the state of Kerala, on the southernmost tip of India, fraternal twins Esthappen and Rahel fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family. Their lonely, lovely mother, Ammu, (who loves by night the man her children love by day), fled an abusive marriage to live with their blind grandmother, Mammachi (who plays Handel on her violin), their beloved uncle Chacko (Rhodes scholar, pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher), and their enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grandaunt). When Chacko's English ex-wife brings their daughter for a Christmas visit, the twins learn that things can change in a day, that lives can twist into new, ugly shapes, even cease forever, beside their river...
#qotd : what is your favourite family story?
✠Cosa stai leggendo?
Ho appena (APPENA = 5 minuti fa) finito Warcross. W o w. Marie Lu non smetterà mai di stupirmi E di spezzarmi il cuore. È quel libro che leggi in un solo giorno, con il fiato sospeso e... e ne parlerò meglio nella recensione, dai. Ma alla fine dá una botta di adrenalina che mi farà andare al lavoro come se avessi bevuto cinque caffè. Perfetto, perchè per lavorare la sera di ferragosto era precisamente quello di cui avevo bisogno.
✠Cos'hai appena finito di leggere?
Beh, se scartiamo l' "appena" a livello Warcross, ma l' "appena" subito dopo è quello del Libro delle Spade, che ho finito lunedì.
✠Cosa leggerai dopo?
Saperlo! Sono molto indecisa, ho le idee ancora confuse per il finale di okaylasmettodinominarlo. Forse leggerò Non è colpa della luna, forse Dio di illusioni. Vedrò 🌙.
#quotd come sta andando la giornata? E quanti libri avete letto fin'ora questo mese?
