Spent my Sunday in Sydney revisiting my trading with a good friend. Books have played such a big part of my life. I’ll happily admit I’m a bookaholic and now create books for indie authors instead of wasting my life behind the wheel of a 250t dump truck... might be a book in that 😛 #tradinglife#haveacrack#unordinarylife#accentia#ilovebooks
ИСКРОМЕНТЫЙ АНГЛИЙСКИЙ ЮМОР📚
Заряд Вам бодрости на понедельник, читающие☕️💌! 🍁
Наконец состоялось моё первое знакомство с таким замечательным британским автором как Пелам Вудхаус. Ранее я много слышала о том, что этот автор пишет искрометные комедии с такими известными героями как, например, Дживс и Вустер. Итак, моё первое знакомство состоялось через книгу «Положитесь на Псмита».
Представьте: Вы живёте в загородном доме с Отцом, любящим «шебаршиться» в саду в любимых цветах, жадноватой теткой, её мужем-подкаблучником и небольшим штатом прислуги. И вот вам на благие цели нужно похитить (или по-просту украсть) бриллиантовое колье вашей же тетки, но сами вы этим озаботиться побаиваетесь. А тут так удачно подворачивается объявление в газете, что некто «Псмит» готов на любые виды работ, не связанных с рыбной промышленностью...
Чувствуете, уже в завязке сюжета есть некоторые несуразности❓ А это только начало❗️
Далее- весь сюжет строится на безумных совпадениях, которые только вот в таких замечательных английских романах и возможны! Путаница в именах, случайные встречи, авантюрность героев - это минимальный набор составляющих «винегрета» от шеф-повара Вудхауса!
Роман читается максимально легко и весело, а множество невероятных фразеологизмов романа хочется выписать и запомнить - до того они интересны!
Про Псмита есть ещё несколько книг («Псмит-журналист», «Псмит в Сити»), и после прочтения этой книги я горю желанием их прочесть- уверена, чудесное настроение обеспечено!
А вы читали Вудхауса❓как вам❓
Отличного дня всем❤️ #booksblogger#книголюб#книжныйчервь#bookstagram#bookstagrammer#instabook#чточитаешь#чтопочитать#ilovebooks#read#lovereading#instabooks#книжныйблог#книжныйблогер#followher#followme#bookaddict#книга#букстаграм#книжнаяполка#книгочей#читай#мирдолжензнатьчтоячитаю
It's true what they say - when you send your intention out into the Universe, with good energy, the Universe conspires to make it happen.
I've always been completely dog crazy, and ever since we got our puppy, Sydney, in December last year, I've been longing to write a dog story. I'm immensely grateful to have received the opportunity to do so. When things are meant to be, nothing comes in the way. It's easy; it flows. This book has been magical from start to finish.
So here's my 'Lucky, It's Diwali'; my newest baby. I so love this book. It holds a special place in my heart. It's an early chapter book; a fictional story, set around Diwali, told through the eyes of four-legged Lucky. I hope you love my Lucky, as much as I love her.
Huge thank you to Tina and her fabulous team at @harpercollinsin . Incredible how this fell in place. And @shamikasdoodles , you are immensely talented, just as dog crazy as I am, and such a joy to work with. Each illustration made my heart happy.
It takes a village, and so, apart from the husband and the sons, I'd also love to thank, @preeti.vyas , @ellenlangmead , @ohaganannemarie , Natasha Rodricks and my niece, @just_your_local_houseplant. Thank you for reading the very raw drafts, for making time for me, and for giving me such valuable feedback. Also to Sydney Sorensen - thank you for lying on my right foot, and keeping me company as I wrote this one.
The link to pre-order is live on Amazon. You’ll just need to type in the title, as I can’t post a link here. (Photo credit: @shamikasdoodles )
And, after 22 days on the road, I'm finally back home in KC. 😊 It's been a crazy journey! I'm sad to leave my adventuring buddies @stephaniehwarner and @carailona, my college roomie Amy who I got to hang out with this weekend (sorry, she's not on Instagram or I'd tag her 😉), and all of my #ACFW2018 buddies (I'll post more about the conference in the upcoming days!), but there's something very comforting about coming back to your own home and bed. Does being from Kansas make it too cheesy to say, "There's no place like home?"
#StoriesWithEpicWonder18 Day 23 - Overcoming
"The worse part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared." - The Giver
Our theme for today is overcoming. There are plenty of epic adventures out there with characters who overcome big bad enemies, and don't get me wrong - I love those stories. But I went a little different direction for my post today.
Many of you may have read #TheGiver by #LoisLowry as an assignment for high school (my little sis says it's one of her favorite school reading assignments). In a society dedicated to "Sameness," 12-year-old Jonas is assigned to become his community's next Receiver of Memory. As part of the process, he is introduced to color and pain and love, and a million other things his society has chosen to forget.
Jonas doesn't face a "big bad" villain. He faces the fear and terror of change and of something unknown. He faces the daily challenge of knowing and feeling things his family and friends can't possibly understand. He faces the difficulty of unseen pain and memories of war and brokenness. A couple days ago @arwenauthor commented regarding her appreciation for the "quiet, understated heroism of getting through a difficult life day by day," and I was so challenged by her words. I think that's part of the beauty of The Giver's brand of overcoming.
QOTD: Do you have a favorite book with a character who overcomes?

I was working one day when I met this woman who had asked what my tattoo meant. I went on to tell her it was a quote from one of my favorite book series and she told me that she has been writing down her favorite quotes and has notebooks filled with them. Which really got me wanting to do the same. So here's my first notebook with my first quote💕💕
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I really wasn’t sure what to expect but had seen The NY Times write up and thought I would give it a try. I thought it was well written. I also thought it was a balanced look at Lisa’s life. She didn’t demean her father but instead showed a honest and fair look at who he was, a man challenged with connecting to his daughter. I think she showed equal honesty when writing about her mother in the story. I am giving it: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hello, hello Dreamers!!!
I am so sorry! I meant to get this shoutout up first thing this morning. And then I completely fell into my book. And I have couldn’t even put it down to eat. But I figured if anyone could understand that, it was all of you beautiful Bookstagrammers!
So here are the amazing photos for this week of #BookQueensSept18 !
Thank you so much to everyone who continues to participate and support us!! Be sure to check out my fellow Queens for their shoutouts!
And remember to share kindness. ❥
Sometimes I force selfies on my dog. 😂 He poses really well by himself, but add people and he’s like a rabbit staring down a fox: crazy eyes and the need to bolt. But I do it anyways. (You can find him at @superowen_theschnauzer.) 🐶 I hope you’ve had a great Sunday!
"Funeral of the Heart is Leah Hayes' stylistic tour-de-force and graphic novel debut, featuring a series of short stories by Hayes and illustrated entirely using the otherworldly medium of scratchboard. Hayes creates a world of unease and ambiguity populated by obsessive characters, forlorn animals, and mysterious, inanimate objects; odd occurrences, unnerving deaths and unconventional but genuine love bind these characters and their stories together. In "The Bathroom," a middle-aged couple discover a mysterious tunnel in their poolhouse after a neighbor's child accidentally drowns in their pool—leading to an immaculate bathroom and another drowning. In "The Needle," two sisters suffer the death of their grandmother as well as her possible resurrection at the hands of the woman with the needle.
The stories are hand lettered and juxtaposed against stark, highly stylized, graphically powerful, black and white images. Stories with titles like "The Bathroom," "The Needle," and "The Hair" sound innocuous, but they aren't fables that should be read to one's children—unless your children enjoy being made uneasy by beautiful things."
what is the one thing which attract you the most to buy a book, for me it's cover of the book.I do read contents before buying a book but one thing that I look before buying any book it's his cover.It screams at me when I buy a new book (abhijeet you have to buy me , just look at me,how beautiful I am) like this 🙈😁🙈 So let's start with my first book, Harry Potter and the prisoner of the Azkaban.The colour and theme of the book is blue and white which is so awesome isn't it guys ! and the illustration is just “Wow”.Before turning to second book I wanna tell you guys I love black colour and it's my favorite. And let's move to the second book it's Eclipse in twilight series.
This is one of those reason why i love twilght. 😘Book is fully black with one red strip which makes the book look more beautiful.
Literally guys twilight is just like a hangover,if you think that you can rid of it, But it will never happens.🙄 And the last but not the least and the most beautiful book The children of blood and bone, i haven't read it yet but i had purchased this book because of its beautiful cover, i know the book is also good and i'm definitely gonna read it soon.😉
