Thank you Liv @4thestatebooks #partner for sending me this beautiful ARC of We Must Be Brave by Frances Liardet! The story sounds amazing and I can’t wait to read it! 💙
A woman; a war; a child that changed everything.
December, 1940. As German bombs fall on Southampton, the city’s residents flee to the surrounding villages. In Upton village, amid the chaos, newly-married Ellen Parr finds a girl sleeping, unclaimed at the back of an empty bus. Little Pamela, it seems, is entirely alone.
Ellen has always believed she does not want children, but when she takes Pamela into her home the child cracks open the past Ellen thought she had escaped and the future she and her husband Selwyn had dreamed for themselves. As the war rages on, love grows where it was least expected, surprising them all. But with the end of the fighting comes the realization that Pamela was never theirs to keep…
Out February 2019.
What newly released books are you looking forward to reading!
Finally finally they are starting to ‘get’ reading. I have held my breath and crossed my fingers for ages that books could tempt them away from their iPads and Netflix and SkyOnDemand, but was worried. Oh let them feel the joy I feel when I walk into a bookstore- the wonder and possibility, the excitement of a new book and the smell of its pages- reading all night because you have to know what happens - reading in the bath and adding more hot water with my toe so I can read the next chapter- being able to pull a book out of my bag on a train or on a plane or sitting on a beach, or sitting in a pool of sunshine on my sofa - and entering another world, learning new things, exploring cultures, understanding people- laughing, crying, having a better understanding of the human condition. I pray so much that they too will come to feel these things and know the gift of a beautiful book. Fingers crossed.

||Book Review|| Halfway to Asphodel by Vishvaraj Chauhan||
This book contains the major and best works of Vishvaraj Chauhan. It consists of five sections – Contemplative Philosophy, Personal, Romance, Letters To Silence, and Poetry.
Contemplative Philosophy contains of articles where the author discuss philosophically about the minute details of life.
Personal articles is the part where the author explains his journey, his feelings, what he was before and what he is now.
Romance- Hold on! This section doesn’t contain only love stories. It explains where he went wrong in his love life, his expectations, heartbreaks and the lessons that made him more stronger.
Letters to Silence- Courageously the author wrote his unsaid words, feelings, his dreams. Not everyone can bring out the thoughts that are our really personal.
The poetry section is the author’s attempt at poems, which are often of the rhyming variety.
There is a phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Likewise don’t judge this book by reading first one-two chapters of the book. Complete the book and you will feel like its a complete beautiful journey.
You won’t feel bore while reading the book because the author discussed some serious issues through some small stories.
He used motivational quotations in between the articles which you can read even after completing the book.
About the writing style, only in few articles I felt like the things could have been explained more easily. But the rest of the articles are worth reading.

My latest read is "Heir of Ra" by M. Sasinowski. It is a book filled to the brim with adventures, mystery, action, mythology and history. I really enjoyed this book! It was a quick and entertaining read, which left me intrigued for more elaborate mythology and history, which I hope book 2 will bring. It felt like a mix between "The Kane Chronicles" and "Tomb Raider". It's the debut novel from the author, and the first book in a series of unknown quantities. Thankfully, "Heir of Ra" doesn't end on a big cliffhanger, so the wait won't be bad! But the ending did leave me wanting more!! The writing is alright. The characters feel a little flat, and I wish there had been more suspense and more magical elements. Nonetheless, it was an entertaining read! I give the book 3.5/5🌟 and I recommend you to check it out if it sounds interesting! Could be fun to read something few knows about, from a fresh author! 😁

I love bookstagram so much because I’ve discovered loads of different books that I wouldn’t normally have picked up.
It’s that time again, I’m in need of some more book recommendations to add to my TBR list - I get a bit concerned when the list gets too short! I’m sure there must be a name for that...? Any and all suggestions welcome as always!
Happy hump day, folks!
@doubledaybooks #partner 🔪 “Satire meets slasher in this short, darkly funny hand grenade of a novel about a Nigerian woman whose younger sister has a very inconvenient habit of killing her boyfriends.” 🔪
I’ve been really picky about which books I accepted the past couple months... and going forward. I’m trying to create some illusion (at least to myself) that I’ll make it through my TBR this year. BUT when a book like MY SISTER, THE SERIAL KILLER by Oyinkan Braithwaite crosses my path, I can’t say no! It sounds just different and exciting enough to demand that I find time to read it. 🔪
SYNOPSIS: Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola's third boyfriend in a row is dead. Korede's practicality is the sisters' saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her "missing" boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit.
A kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where Korede works, is the bright spot in her life. She dreams of the day when he will realize they're perfect for each other. But one day Ayoola shows up to the hospital uninvited and he takes notice. When he asks Korede for Ayoola's phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and what she will do about it. 🔪
"Operation Love - Herzflimmern in London" von Lisa Torberg - Autorin.
Trisha Latch, Agentin des MI5, Deckname Miss Smith, hat das Limit des Erträglichen erreicht. Sie ist das eingefärbte Vogelnest auf ihrem Kopf, die klebrige Mascara, den schwarzen Lippenstift, vor allem aber die Tonne Metall leid, die sie tagtäglich von den Ohrläppchen bis zu den Boots mit sich herumschleppt. Und ihren schmierigen Vermieter Schrägstrich Zielobjekt, der seine Griffel nicht bei sich behält. Sie explodiert, setzt die Undercover-Mission im East End in den Sand und landet unweit der Billionaire’s Ave bei dem Mann, dessen Bruder vor ihren Augen ermordet wurde – und der eine pelzige Matratze im Gesicht hat. Und sie hasst Vollbärte!
Troy Raven, Anwalt und Privatermittler, traut seinen Augen nicht. Blackshaw, der das MI5-Team leitet, das dem Killer seines Bruders auf den Fersen ist, schickt ihm dieses Gothic-Biest, um seine schwangere Assistentin zu ersetzen? Eine Frau, die er nicht einmal mit der Kneifzange anfassen würde – wenngleich sie fantastisch riecht, ein heißes Fahrgestell hat und ihm 100.000 Volt durch den Körper jagt, als sich ihre Finger berühren ...
Bree, Troys beste Freundin und Noch-Assistentin, fasst ihr Aufeinandertreffen in Worte: Das kann ja heiter werden.
Atticus - the dark between stars.
It’s so interesting to me that this person has been able to find the words for all the things I didn’t know how to say, and I don’t think I could ever thank them for that🖤 @atticuspoetry #newbook#thedarkbetweenstars
I’m thankful for this ministry and the opportunities God has given me to encourage others. I’m humbled that He would use me. The last several weeks I’ve been working on my first book. It’s not the one I thought it would be. But it’s the one God wrote several years ago. I tucked the old manuscript away almost 8 years ago. It was time. It’s Selah’s story ... and our story. But the good news is that it’s coming out in November - just in time for National Adoption Month!
For right now, it means I’m back to blogging ❤️ The #MomentsofHope link-up will be back tomorrow along with some fresh new content! Plus ... there are going to be some #giveaways to celebrate a fresh new look to the website! The new design happened in early summer, but I couldn’t pull off a party then so we are doing now 😊💃🏼 P.S. Have I ever mentioned how thankful I am to every single one of you who have encouraged and cheered me on along the way? Well ... I am! 💕I am beyond thankful for you! #thankyoujesus#gratitude#encouragement#newbook#adoption#blogging#linkup#lovewell#friendships#newblogdesign#thankyou
#ResenhaComplit | Livro: Entre Quatro Paredes | Autora: B. A. Paris | 4,5🌟 •
Grace está casada há quase 1 ano, com quem aparenta ser o marido perfeito, Jack, um grande advogado especializado em casos de mulheres vítimas de agressões domésticas. Se apaixonou logo de primeir.a quando notou o seu extremo carinho por Millie, sua irmã mais nova que tem Síndrome de Down. Não tinha dúvidas de que ele era o homem perfeito pra ela. Mas será que o relacionamento dos dois era tão perfeito assim? •
A história flui muito rápido, a escrita é muito bem detalhada com a presença de flash backs que nos advertem de cada momento vivido por Grace naquele relacionamento que não era tão perfeito quanto ela imaginava. •
Jack a vigiava em cada gesto e passo que dava, com quem conversava e até mesmo quando estava sozinha trocando de roupa. •
Mas tudo o que Grace fazia, ou deixava de fazer, tinha um propósito. Salvar Millie.
Recomendo muito esse livro pois você se sente totalmente dentro da personagem principal, vivendo tudo o que ela vivia. 💜

Like a cinematographic city tour through time, Berlin of the Roaring Twenties takes in the urban scale and the intricate details of this transformative decade, from sweeping street panoramas, bejeweled with new electric lights, to the foxtrot and tango steps tapped out on dance floors across the town. With characteristic graphic mastery of light, shadow, and expression, as well as a silver-printing sheen, illustrator Robert Nippoldt intersperses portraits with cityscapes, revealing the changing scenery and dynamic hubs of this burgeoning and rapidly industrializing capital, as well as the extraordinary protagonists that made up its hotbed scene of art, science, and ideas.
Night Falls on the Berlin of the Roaring Twenties is available in-store and online at shop.neuegalerie.org

After working 14 yrs for @benabbotttx (I started at the age of 10 😉) It’s finally time to say goodbye. I’ve worked along with some of the same people since day 1, they’ve seen me grow! The office was my second home and at times it was my co-workers that helped me get through the hard stuff. I learned so much about the business and about life. I will miss most of you💕
On that note, I’d also like to share with you all that I have accepted a position as a News Anchor/Reporter for Telemundo in Abilene, TX. I am beyond excited but more importantly grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given. I didn’t get here alone, thank you to everyone that has ever helped me 🙌
I’ll be back Dallas!
Let’s do this 💪🎥✨📺💚 #WorkingWomenWednesday#NewChapter#NewBook#TalkAboutBeingLoyal#WithGodICanDoAnything#TrustHisTiming#Blessed#MoreLatinosInNews
