İlk romanını 1966’da yayımlayan Ursula, bilim kurgu ve fantezi edebiyatında edindiği özel yerin yanında şiir, çocuk ve genç edebiyatı, tiyatro alanlarında da yazar ve çevirmen olarak eserler verdi. Eserlerinde özellikle Taoizm, Jung, Yunan Mitolojisi ve Varoluşçuluğun etkisi vardı.

1969’da yayımladığı “Karanlığın Sol Eli” ile bilim kurgu dünyasının iki büyük ödülü “Hugo” ve “Nebula” ödüllerine layık görülen Ursula,, 89 yıl önce bugün hayata ‘merhaba’ dedi. Onu, bizi kendine bağlayan eserlerinden alıntılarla anıyoruz… .

. - Seni tüm dünyaya bağlayan insanı bulduğunda bambaşka biri olursun; daha iyi biri. Peki o kişi senden koparıldığı zaman, o zaman nasıl birine dönüşürsün.
(Karanlığın Sol Eli) * - Gerçek kaybeden kazanamayan değildir. Gerçek kaybeden; kaybetmekten o kadar korkar ki kazanmayı denemez bile. (Karanlığın Sol Eli) * - Tanrı aşkına, kırılmış olmak hiç de kolay değildir. Hayatında güvenecek birinin olmaması, işte gerçekten kırıcı olan bu. (Karanlığın Sol Eli)

Kniha, která mě zaujala na první pohled, ale nevěřila jsem, že ji někdy budu číst. 📚📖🤷‍♀️
A přece na ni došlo. #amelieatma Proč jsem ji nechtěla číst? Protože je psaná v přítomném čase, což nesnáším. A navíc se střídají dve vypravěčky, dva pohledy, což taky zpravidla moc nevyhledávám. 🤔
A proč jsem se do ní nakonec přece jen pustila? Anotace a ilustrace mě prostě uchvátily a pořád jsem knihu nemohla pustit z hlavy. Taky jméno #amelie a ke všemu jsem na ni pořád někde narážela, takže mi jistě dáte zapravdu, že se vlastně vůbec nedalo odolat!
Dva důvody, které mě odrazovaly, se i po přečtení staly jedinými negativy, které bych vytkla. Ovšem s tím, že je kniha tak krásná, že je prostě přejdu a odpustím💞🔝
Příběh je velice krásný. Smutný, avšak s dobrým, milým koncem, v který jsem od prvních stran doufala.
Postavy jsou skvělé propracované, mají charakter. Dokonce ty dětské jsou tak věrné, reálné. 👍 A nechybí ani náznaky první lásky 😊
Já jsem naprosto uchvácena ilustracemi #lubomirkupcik 💖 to je neco nádherného! Odkazy na popkulturu jsou hrozně milé, zejména pak mě potěšila několikrát zmíněná #amywinehouse 💕 děkuji @alrauna 🤗
V knize ale najdete i sociální témata od izolace, rozvodu, nedostatku peněz až k finančním rozdílům mezi spolužáky ve škole. 👌
Ale hlavně je to o síle přátelství 🤝
Sice je to dětská knížka a já už jsem pěkný koště, ale i tak to je prostě láska na první přečtení. 💘👻

.: Book 20 of 2018 — The Outsider by Kyi Aye :.
.
Happened to read this masterpiece for umpteenth time. This book is my all time favourite of Kyi Aye. Regardless of the decade it had been published, the timelessness is one thing you can always find in her writing.

.: Book 19 of 2018 — The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George:.
.
I picked this one because of its synopsis at the back of the book. A bookshop owner in Paris recommending books to soothe the troubled souls of his customers. Except he couldn’t cure himself. It seemed interesting at first but it became a very slow and boring read.  Perhaps it’s not my cup of tea.

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green brings a lot of humor and approachability to the YA Science Fiction genre. It was a light take on the societal differences that the world experiences so much of these days. 
What held the book to only three stars for me were only two things: 1. that after reading a book that tackled very real and very heavy issues that are too often ignored (Sadie by Courtney Summers) in favor of the ideological issues covered in this novel, it felt a bit shallow, and 2. April May, the twenty-three year old star of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing was just too preachy with her ideals for the masses when considering how thoughtless and careless she was with the people who loved her most.

I laughed out loud several times as the humor in the novel is its biggest strength. I get why so many people will love this book and its message. Probably timing and possibly my life experience make me the wrong audience to LOVE it. It is good, though. Hank Green can definitely stand proudly next to the inevitable comparisons that will be made to his brother.

Thank you so much @riverheadbooks for these free books! I’m almost finished with LITTLE by Edward Carey and it’s SO GOOD!! Stay tuned for my review! What are you up to this weekend?!! 📖☕️
.
“In 1761, a tiny, odd-looking girl named Marie is born in a village in Switzerland. After the death of her parents, she is apprenticed to an eccentric wax sculptor and whisked off to the seamy streets of Paris, where they meet a domineering widow and her quiet, pale son. Together, they convert an abandoned monkey house into an exhibition hall for wax heads, and the spectacle becomes a sensation. As word of her artistic talent spreads, Marie is called to Versailles, where she tutors a princess and saves Marie Antoinette in childbirth. But outside the palace walls, Paris is roiling: The revolutionary mob is demanding heads, and . . . at the wax museum, heads are what they do.”

A break from health and nutrition books, because who doesn't love @reesewitherspoon !? 'Whiskey in a Tea Cup' is southern charm in book form and now I want to drink all the sweet tea and host all the dinner parties 😂😍

If you could invite five people, living or dead, to your ultimate dinner party; who would you invite?
.
.
In this book, Sabrina arrives at her 30th birthday party to find that “Ultimate Dinner Party” list she made years ago is happening right now. At the table sits Audrey Hepburn, her estranged father, her ex-fiancé and a cast of other characters. Some are living, some are dead but all have a purpose.
.

This book was really interesting and I found myself hooked from beginning to end, wanting to know just why each of these dinner guests were there and what secrets they would reveal.

It wasn’t what I needed at the time. 
I started this in early October 2018 when the now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was testifying against Dr. Christine Ford’s sexual assault allegations. Although I am a social worker and work hard for justice in real life. I did NOT want to do that while reading this book. I was mentally exhausted and perhaps that is why I did not love this book. Also, I’m from Texas where hockey fans are slim to none that I know of lol so I just replaced “hockey” for “football” and even then it was TOO MUCH. I get the small town sports politics. However, I was not impressed by the plot (trust me, even if you haven't read the story you know the story). I did not feel attached to any one character. I did have a liking to Ana, but only because she sounds a little like a friend I have which lead to a quote that got me thinking, “You never have the sort of friends you have when you’re fifteen ever again. Even if you keep them for the rest of your life, it’s never the same as it was then.” 👯
BTW my local book club was on fire with this. 💣💥 Also, there is dun dunna dunnn a sequel! Us Against You, and has over 4 stars on Goodreads. I am not sure if I want to dive into this story today, or really ever. 
Has anybody read either of these books? Should I get over the allegations on the news and read the sequel?

Book #12 for 2018: The Clerkenwell Tales by Peter Ackroyd.
Verdict: Wriiten by the author of one of my favourite non-fiction books (London: The Biography), I knew I was going to enjoy this fictional mystery set in the last year of the fourteenth century. London’s streets are peopled with fascinating characters - members of a secretive religious sect, a young nun spouting prophecies and various dodgy brothers. It’s a who dunnit and a cracking adventure set in a period which Ackroyd brings brilliantly to life with his masterful narrative. You need to stay sharp to keep up with the cast of characters. 
Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5

Happy Caturday! Reading anything you’d recommend this weekend? 📖😻 . My cuddlebud Harry and I finished this book and while he especially enjoyed all the HP references, I still recommend Man Called Ove over this one. 🍂 Next I’m going to read something spooky for Halloween!
I finished November Road! What a fascinating cast of characters this book had!
.
The story follows three separate characters in alternating chapters - Frank, Charlotte, and Barone.
.
Frank Guidry is a mobster working for the New Orleans mob boss and his right hand woman, Seraphine. The early chapters following Frank around New Orleans are dynamic - the city is alive and oozes as much charm as the character’s living there. I could’ve read an entire book of just Frank’s mob adventures in NoLa!
.
Things quickly turn south for Frank, who knows too much after he’s given a job by Seraphine. After realizing that his life is in danger, he runs. Hunting him is his assassin, Paul Barone whose dark presence is felt looming over Frank through the book.
.
Charlotte is a woman yearning for more than her small town life in Oklahoma. One night, after her alcoholic husband leaves for the bar, she takes her two young daughters and the family dog and heads west. Charlotte’s drive and gumption are inspiring and you quickly find yourself loving her.
.
Along the way, Frank and Charlotte find each other, join forces, and head to Las Vegas.
.
This second half of the book is where it stagnated a bit for me. These two compelling stories merged together to become something, less? And once they reached Vegas things seemed to get a little strange and off track.
.
I will say, I really liked the ending for Frank. I won’t give anything away, but I found it poetic and really quite perfect for his character.
.
All in all, I found this to be a good book full of incredibly interesting characters. People who loved Mad Men would likely really appreciate this story.

I finished November Road! What a fascinating cast of characters this book had! . The story follows three separate characters in alternating chapters - Frank, Charlotte, and Barone. . Frank Guidry is a mobster working for the New Orleans mob boss and his right hand woman, Seraphine. The early chapters following Frank around New Orleans are dynamic - the city is alive and oozes as much charm as the character’s living there. I could’ve read an entire book of just Frank’s mob adventures in NoLa! . Things quickly turn south for Frank, who knows too much after he’s given a job by Seraphine. After realizing that his life is in danger, he runs. Hunting him is his assassin, Paul Barone whose dark presence is felt looming over Frank through the book. . Charlotte is a woman yearning for more than her small town life in Oklahoma. One night, after her alcoholic husband leaves for the bar, she takes her two young daughters and the family dog and heads west. Charlotte’s drive and gumption are inspiring and you quickly find yourself loving her. . Along the way, Frank and Charlotte find each other, join forces, and head to Las Vegas. . This second half of the book is where it stagnated a bit for me. These two compelling stories merged together to become something, less? And once they reached Vegas things seemed to get a little strange and off track. . I will say, I really liked the ending for Frank. I won’t give anything away, but I found it poetic and really quite perfect for his character. . All in all, I found this to be a good book full of incredibly interesting characters. People who loved Mad Men would likely really appreciate this story. . . . . . . #hemysbookclub  #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #readersofinstagram  #booksofinstagram  #bookworm  #booknerd  #booklover  #booklove  #bibliophile  #bookish  #bookblogger  #goodreads  #bookobsessed  #bookishfeatures  #bookreviewer  #bookreview  #bookstagramfeatures  #mybookfeatures  #amreading  #dogsandbooks  #booksanddogs  #bookofthemonth  #bookofthemonthclub  #botm  #whatiread  #fallreads  #fallreading  #bookcommunity 
📚BOOK REVIEW📚
-
12 people are trapped in an old quaint hotel during a winter storm with no way to leave or get help. So, what do you do when people start dying off?
-
With so many characters I knew going in I’d need to take notes so I could keep the characters straight. Glad I did because I went back to my notes several times and felt like I was able to enjoy the story more because I knew who everyone was.
-
This book is a good mystery that was a quick read and had me guessing all the way to the end. And that last chapter!! 🤭
-
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

„What remains is in the survivor’s memories: mirroring, imitated gestures, words, music.“ As I have spend quite some time with loved ones in hospitals recently, I felt the deep need to pick up this book again. An elderly woman, about to become a first-time grandmother, married to a man 20 years her senior that becomes the victim of a heart attack, and daughter to two ailing parents - is confronted with the thought of death and dying more urgently than she wished for. In all its sadness, i was intrigued by the writing and the glimmer of hope and peace with death this book provided. This book is like talking with a wise old friend, some friend‘s mother, over a glass of wine. It’s about strong women and where they „go“ once they passed menopause. I am still scared of getting old, but this book always reminds me to focus on the important things: family, friendship and first and foremost: LOVE. I have rented this book twice now and I really need a copy of my own. #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #booklive #instabooks #instareads #catsandbooks #whatiread #catandbook #fearofdying #ericajong #feminism #femlit @stbibkoeln

📖 The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin
2018 / Fiction / Hardcover / Finished 10/13/18
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
...
This one keeps getting compared to Grey’s Anatomy and I can see why. It’s about two friends, Zadie and Emma, who went to med school together many years ago and now practice medicine in the same city. An old colleague shows up and causes the women to reconsider some dramatic events that took place when they were all in school together. Lots of drama but really well written. And that cover! 😍

My Friday night was super exciting 😂 Spent the night in finishing this book! Romances aren't really my thing, so this was just an ok read for me. The use of an autistic character was interesting, though. Romance readers on Goodreads enjoyed it!

Cho dù ước mơ của bạn chỉ là một ước mơ giản dị
Hãy cứ kể về ước mơ ấy cho người khác nghe.
Đến khi bạn kể ước mơ ấy cho khoảng mười người
Thì tỷ lệ ước mơ ấy trở thành sự thật sẽ rất cao.

Hãy hành động thật tự tin
Như thể bạn đã đạt được ước mơ
Và hãy luôn chuẩn bị thật chăm chỉ.
Cứ thế, ước mơ của bạn sẽ trở thành sự thật, một cách thần kì. - Bước chậm lại giữa thế gian vội vã -

« No soy un pájaro y ninguna red me atrapa: soy un ser humano libre con una voluntad independiente. »
« I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will. »
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jane Eyre nos lleva a la Inglaterra del siglo XIX donde los convencionalismos son difíciles de romper, en especial para una mujer joven y sin fortuna. Influenciada unas veces por la moral, otras por la razón o el corazón, Jane Eyre toma siempre sus propias decisiones, no importa que sea respecto al matrimonio, el trabajo o en lo económico. Son estas decisiones las que marcan su camino y el desenlace de una novela que merece la pena leer.

Такие выходные 🤓📚 Бумажные книги читать дико неудобно, но так приятно! У второй отвратительная бумага и мелкий шрифт, мучаюсь, но все равно не скачиваю. А у миссис Пэрриш офигенное издание, только закончила и сразу заново хочется начать, чтобы еще поперелистывать :) Уже написала список, чего еще из Москвы привезти, даже уговорила Алекса взять второй чемодан большой. С собой у нас вещей нет, а вот обратно надо будет уместить все книги, батончики рот-фронт и коллеги, конечно, водки попросили. Много 😂 И стики для айкоса. Занимательная математика (с обычными сигаретами будет такая же): 2 блока стиков из Германии = 3.5 блока из Чехии = 7 блоков из России 🤔 #whatiread #bookstagram #books #bookworm #книжныйчервь #книги #чтоячитаю #чтопочитать #букстаграм

Melanie ist eine gute Mutter. Doch jetzt hat man ihr den Sohn genommen. Die Katastrophe lauert an diesem Montagabend vor dem Haus der Tagesmutter, als Melanie mit den Worten überfallen wird: „Ihr Sohn ist nicht hier. Er befindet sich in der Obhut des Sozialamtes.“ Für die junge Mutter bricht ihre heile Welt zusammen: Sie wird beschuldigt, ihren Sohn vernachlässigt zu haben, mit Kokain zu dealen, den Stoff im Kinderzimmer gelagert zu haben und darüber hinaus auch noch ihr Kind im Internet zum Verkauf angeboten zu haben. Haltlose Vorwürfe, aber wie kann sie ihre Unschuld beweisen? Und wichtiger noch: Wer will sie auf diese Weise vernichten? Als Melanie auf eigene Faust der Sache auf den Grund geht, steht sie vor einem schier übermächtigen Gegner… .

📢В эфире - моё транспортное #чтиво 📚 Книгу хочется открыть даже перед сном, что, в принципе, мне не свойственно, потому что сон для меня of foremost importance nowadays. 
книгу я только начала читать, но впечатления от стиля И.Шоу довольно- таки приятные. Кто-нибудь читал?)

Empty & The Ocean by @barakablue 
I didn’t know about Baraka Blue and his poetry but after coming back from London, and being exposed to the poetry/spoken word scene there, my heart was yearning for some poetry in SG.

My friend invited me for his poetry reading a couple of months back at @wardahbooks and his poetry hit me, right in the soul. 
Poetry is so creative and beautiful in how it manages to take abstract and complex feelings and condense it into simple phrases that can resonate for a long period of time.

This book is a collection of “Sufi” or spiritual reflections and poems by Baraka Blue. My favourite of all is shared in the next pictures (swipe). I tried my best to fit in all the words😅 It’s called “Ancestors of the Future”. I found this poem so heavy because I was asked earlier this year “What type of ancestors do we want to be for our future generations?” #bookstagram #poetry #whatiread #poems #islamicbooks #islamicreads #islam

All the books I'm currently reading and trying to finish before the end of the month.

What books are you reading or planning to read before the end of October? Anything spooky?

Impressions on these reads so far include: being intrigued yet unsure about The Secret History - like I hate everyone, but the concept is brilliant; crying at Dumbledore's end of year speech in the Goblet of Fire and having no real impressions on The Autograph Man or Ghost Stories as I've only just started them.

Anyone else participating in the #8inboo readathon this weekend? I managed to read a bit over four hours from my sick bed yesterday and hoping to read another four hours today.

My Saturday was put to good use, just finished #hollythrosby #cedarvalley What a great read. I loved how the story slowly revealed the secrets of the folks of Cedar Valley with a few red herrings for good measure. Thanks @allenandunwin for my copy. #australianfiction #goodread #bookworm #book #whatiread 📖
I don't recall if I was aware of the fact before but it was while watching the TV show Kim's Convenience last month that Mr. Kim's constant proclamations of, "In 1910, Japan attack Korea!" brought to my attention Korea's history with Japan. But it wasn't until I read White Chrysanthemum almost immediately after that I understood what exactly this meant for the people of Korea (you can find my review of the book a few posts back). Then I picked up Pachinko and realised it was also set in Korea (and later in Japan) during the same time. I haven't finished that yet (I got distracted by some library books that needed to be returned) but I'll be getting back to it soon.
🌸
While fantasy still holds the place of my favourite genre, I also love reading more realistic fiction like these because it often tends to be educational, helping to broaden my horizons as I gain some insight into the lives of the different people around the world and from different times.
🌸
These books (and, yes, even Mr Kim😋) have awoken my interest in Japan's invasion of Korea so I wanted to ask if any of you had recommendations for books set during that time in Korea. Or even Japan. It would be interesting to see the story from a different perspective as well.

I’m 60% sure I’ve already read Me Talk Pretty One Day, but I know for a fact that we don’t have a copy at home. I’m spending this evening finishing up Ariel Levy’s The Rules do not Apply (a good friend here in Boston just read it too and wants to discuss tomorrow) and then diving into some Sedaris. Do you have a favorite author that you know will always deliver, regardless of the topic at hand? David Sedaris is absolutely that author for me.

THE CACTUS by sarah haywood (fiction) prickly, tightly-wound, but loveable susan finds her well-ordered life spinning a bit out of control + witty & warm = 👍🏻
🌵
“It’s strange how something you never planned or desired can have such an effect on you. As you know, I never wanted to be a mother. More than that: I positively recoiled at the idea. If you’d told me a year ago that in twelve months’ time I’d be in the late stages of pregnancy, I’d have been horrified; I’d have done everything in my power to prevent it from happening. And how do I feel now? Now I feel that my world has changed.”

Now I feel that my world has changed.” 🌵 #thecactus  #sarahhaywood  #whatiread  #becausereading  #fiction  #bibliophile  #littlebookreviews  #books  #readingisfun  #readinglist  #readingrules  #booklover  #bookworm  #bookish  #bookstagram  #instabook  #instaread  #ilovebooks  #voraciousreader  #readbooks  #instabooks  #readabook  #readmore  #readmorebooks  #igreads  #thefinchbook  #whattoread  #whattoreadnext  #reader  #brettlikes 👍🏻
Today’s book review is A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L’Engle by Sarah Arthur
📚
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves biographies, loves Madeline L’Engle or who finds it hard to fit in a specific mold (like Christians who enjoy Harry Potter). It is very revealing and thought-provoking.

You know what, I think I’m really starting to get into this series and here’s one reason why.⁣
⁣
I’ve noticed that despite them being targeted to a younger audience, the dialogue between characters isn’t cringy. ⁣
⁣
I enjoyed Scarlet, and it’s becoming more layered with the introduction of new characters and intermingling plots. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. ⁣
⁣
I don’t think I’d necessarily recommend it for the 30+ age group; unless like me, you love fairytale adaptations or fantasy reads. But again, the lack of the cringe factor so far has made it a real enjoyable read.⁣

Earlier this month, I got myself a spooky little present: 👻 this absolutely beautiful 200th anniversary, illustrated edition of Frankenstein, to add to my personal library collection. 🖤 ...and I just finished reading it. The last time I actually read Frankenstein cover-to-cover being whilst I was studying literature at university. 😱
Fyi: it's still bloody brilliant.

I can't talk up this edition enough. If you're also cultivating a personal collection that leans heavy on the gothic, you MUST add this to your list, my fellow bibliophiles. 😏 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - 5 stars

It just feels right to read a western in the desert.
Or is this an anti-western?
In any case, John Williams, whose Stoner I loved, isn’t letting me down.
My first #buddyread with @alexkennedyfishing 🌵🏜
Have I mentioned how much I love NYRB books?

Hi all! I haven't really been active lately, mostly because I've a) been finishing and handing in my MA thesis, b) started a new part-time job, and c) am dealing with a ridiculous amount of life admin in general at the moment. But I'm determined to be back to reading more now, and I have many plans concerning my tbr shelf that you'll hopefully hear more about soon. .

Here's a fledgling poetry shelf (and some Tolkien) to make up for my absence - spot any favourites?

Scenes from the @foliosociety headquarters on Tuesday, where I was kindly invited to have a little peek at the latest books in their collection, as well as these beautiful editions from the archives 😍 
If anyone is feeling generous feel free to get me the beautiful new edition of Middlemarch (story highlights under Best of 2018). It’s a weight but it’s also the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. 
I also loved seeing some of my favourite bookstagrammers (@thebookboy @thereaderswardrobe @pagesandplays) and meeting some wonderful people (looking at you @rcsreads!) .

32/2018 📖 František Niedl - Inspektor Prevít. Kniha je krimirománem o vtipném smolaři, inspektoru Prévitovi, který se shodou okolností ocitne u několika zločinů. Je dalo by se říct outsiderem, ale velmi schopným policistou. Kniha je plná vtipných momentů, čte se velmi dobře. Ale vytkla bych poměrně velké množství chyb/překlepů. To mě trochu mrzí. A od pana Niedla doporučuji také jeho skvělé historické romány z doby Václava IV. nebo Jana Lucemburského. ☺️ #frantisekniedl #inspektorprevit #dnesctu #dnescitam #reading #books #knihomol #whatiread #knihyjsourelax #bookstagram #ctete #ceskaliteratura #nofilter #fall #autumn

It finally feels like fall here- this week has been sort of insane (anyone else?!) so I haven’t been reading that much. I started this cute rom-com & the chemistry is 🔥 Looking forward to spending the weekend cozied up by the fire!
.
“The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.
.
When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her….”

We made it to Friday, my dudes! How excited are you for this weekend? I have a very busy one in store full of fun surprises! I am doing an instagram takeover this weekend for my friend @desaraelee to help promote her amazing new series of children’s books! I have so much fun planned, so be sure to give her a follow so you don’t miss out! 🖤🖤

I like to dabble in self help books from time to time; they can help re-centre thoughts and life goals for me. This one wasn't really for me though; there were some good chapters, but some didn't really apply to me... A lot of the advice was generic, but written in a "I'm such a cool badass, look at me!" way. Ah well, not my style 🤷

De mol van Bart Debbaut.
Dit boek gaat echt om het bekende spel van de tv: wie is de mol? Maar je gaat niet zelf op zoek naar de mol. Nee het gaat om de opnames van het tv programma en die worden gesaboteerd. Er verdwijnt een kandidate. Mare hoe, wie, wat, waar, waarom? De redactie tast in het duister. Hoe kan dit?
Leuk en spannend boek. Korte hoofdstukken. Elk hoofdstuk is vanuit een ander persoon geschreven. Zo leer je alle personages goed kennen. Je hoeft inderdaad niet zelf op zoek te gaan naar de mol, want die is halverwege het verhaal al bij je bekend. Tot het einde blijft het spannend hoe dit gaat aflopen. Zeker een aanrader als je zelf ook naar de mol kijkt op tv.

Saying 👋 to the work week and HELLO to the weekend! I’m hoping to make some yummy fall desserts with all these apples this weekend! 🍎

I’ve been reading The Air You Breathe and really enjoying it so far. Admittedly, I always get nervous to read super hyped up books, afraid I’ll be let down. So far though, this book is living up to my expectations! What’s the last book you’ve read that has lived up to your expectations and the hype?

"Motherhood: All love begins and ends there" - Robert Downing.
〰️
I pick THE PERFECT MOTHER for my next read. I've been waiting to read for this book for awhile. So, when it's finally available on the local library, I was super excited! 😃
〰️
I finished THE WINTERS yesterday and I loved it! I've  never read the classic "Rebecca" nor watched its movie adaptation  by Hitchcock, so I have nothing to compare to. But I'm fine with that. THE WINTER is absolutely fun to read.
〰️
The plot is opened by introducing characters to readers, followed by the development of romantic relationship between the narrator and Max Winter. That part is a bit slow. Then our narrator moved to Max's mansion in a secluded island. That's when the plot is starting to get interesting. All suspenses are leading up to a bizzare ending. Overall THE WINTERS is highly ENTERTAINING!
〰️
Thanks to @vikingbooks and @penguinrandomhouse for providing me with an advance copy of #TheWinters

Schon wach? Nein? Dann hilft vielleicht Dave Eggers neuer Roman.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Zur Erinnerung: Dave Eggers ist der Autor vom Google-Roman „The Circle“, der mittlerweile ja mit Emma Watson in der Hauptrolle verfilmt wurde.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In „Der Mönch von Mokka“ erzählt Eggers die wahre Geschichte von Mokhtar. Er ist als Kind aus dem Jemen in die USA eingewandert. Mittlerweile ist er 24 Jahre alt und weiß nicht so wirklich, was er mit seinem Leben anfangen soll. Doch dann erfährt er von der alten Kaffeetradition seiner Heimat. Der Jemen war mal ein großes Kaffee-Land, denn über die Hafenstadt Mokka wurde der Kaffee in die Welt transportiert. Mokhtar will das Kaffee-Business in seiner Heimat unter fairen Bedingungen wiederbeleben. Mutiges Vorhaben, denn im Jemen herrscht Krieg. Mokhtar reist trotzdem in sein Heimatland und was er dann erlebt, hats ganz schön in sich.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
„Der Mönch von Mokka“ ist eine Mischung aus Abenteuerroman und Migrationsgeschichte, denn anhand von Mokhtars Leben sieht man ganz gut, was es heißt in zwei Welten aufzuwachsen. Mein Fazit: Spannender Roman, packend erzählt mit einer echt sympathischen und liebenswerten Hauptfigur. Mokhtar ist ein Chaot, aber einer mit viel Mut und Herz. Gesa 👧🏼

There aren’t many books that make me cry. Films or TV on the other hand, and I cry a river (like with A Star is Born last weekend where I sobbed my heart out in a darkened room full of strangers). I’m apparently cold-hearted because even The Book Thief didn’t reduce me to a snivelling mess. However, The Great Believers had me crying huge ugly tears in a coffee shop before work one morning; I had to stop to read the final chapters before starting my day. It broke me but in a wonderful, enriching way. 
Read this book. Shortlisted for the National Book Award in the USA it is the story of the 1980s AIDS epidemic in Chicago, with a second connected strand set in  Paris in 2015. Yale Tishman (and Roscoe the Cat!) will warm your heart, then break it, and possibly make you cry 🧡 #thegreatbelievers

Reading the awesomeness of Spinning Silver and cheering for all the strong female character representation! The multiple narrator got me lost at first but once you get to know them, it gets easier to shift worlds. My goal is to get this done by the weekend in time for the group discussion for #spinningsilverreadalong ! 🤞🏼

I am headed off to bed ❤️
But reposting the stack of books - the books I tend to reread frequently. Most are multi tales, I always reread a #stephenking book here and there. ❓❓What do you read? ❓❓
