Thank you to @suzyapprovedbooktours , @spkoslow and @harperbooks for my copy of this book! Where are all my Great Gatsby and F Scott Fitzgerald fans at? If that's you, this book is for you! Sheilah is a gossip columnist in the 1930's. She covers all of the Hollywood stars. She changes her name in order to be more "anonymous" and at the same time F Scott Fitzgerald is trying to make it big while also supporting his own demons and his family, especially his wife. Sheilah and F Scott end up falling for each other but their love affair is a complicated one as F Scott would never leave his wife while she is not well. Over time they have to work hard at their relationship and as that time passes their secrets start to come out. I'm not a huge historical fiction fan but I do love a good love story with some complexity as well as historical fiction mostly surrounding women. The thing that stuck out to me most was the writing of this book. It flowed really well for me and I can't help but love the old glitz and glam of the 1930's. It almost makes me want to transport back there to experience it! If you are looking for a good historical fiction love story I would recommend picking up this one this summer! #anothersideofparadise

We all live in glass houses. We are vulnerable to each other. We break even when the tiniest pebble of judgment is thrown. We are victims of dysfunction. We spider crack into dark crevices when emotional or physical abuse is endured. We are acceptable to disease. We shatter when Stones of debilitating illness wreak havoc through our bodies We all live in glass houses. IT HELPS US SEE THE LIGHT Broken glass is still clear The light cannot be extinguished.

Escribir desde y para las feas, escribir para aquellas que no encajan en el molde que por décadas nos han impuesto; Las frigidas, las camionetas, las mal folladas, las infollables y todas las que no somos buenas chicas; ese es el objetivo de Virginie Despentes en su libro “Teoría Kong Kong, en el que busca hablar con total franqueza, abandonando los tabus acerca de temas como; La prostitución, la violación, la pornografia y la represión de los deseos. #feminismo #feminista #feminist #feminism #booktime #reading #literaturafeminista #recomendaciones #LasRosasRecomiendan

#aristotelesydantedescubrenlossecretosdeluniverso es un libro que nos narra la historia de dos amigos. El libro nos narra la historia de un chico llamado Aristoteles, el cual es un poco apático en algunas cosas y es algo antisocial aunque también es un chico muy sensible. Él quería aprender a nadar por lo que asiste a una alberca y ahí es cuando conoce a Dante, que es una persona muy agradable, divertida y con el cual siente una seguridad y tranquilidad que nunca había sentido con nadie, a partir de ese momento Aristoteles y Dante se vuelven inseparables. Se presentan algunas situaciones algo fuertes y ahí es cuando veremos cómo Aristoteles se descubre a sí mismo y con ello descubriendo los secretos del universo. Es un libro que disfrute muchísimo leyendo, me ayudo como persona y hasta el momento es uno de mis libros favoritos. #aristotelesydantedescubrenlossecretosdeluniverso #lgbt #pride #gay #homosexual #bookstagram #books #book #bookworm #booklover #reading #bookish #booksblogger #instabook #bookstagrammer #bookaddict   #love

Libro #19 de 2019: "Doce Cuentos Peregrinos" de Gabriel García Márquez, 1992 Cuando Gabriel García Márquez soñó con su propio funeral, surgió una idea que más adelante se materializó en 72 relatos cortos que fueron olvidados a lo largo de los años, a tal punto que cuando quiso recuperarlos sólo fue posible rescatar y re-escribir 12 de ellos. Y fueron suficientes para demostrar los talentos de Gabo para narrar historias cortas, en esta ocasión contadas a través de un elemento común entre ellos: la muerte. Estas 12 historias, tan diferentes e impares entre sí, nunca pierden el acostumbrado tono de narración al cual nos acostumbró Gabo con sus reconocidas novelas publicadas. Nos encontramos con personajes Latinoamericanos que terminan de extranjeros en Europa, algunos en situaciones plausibles pero no por ello retorcidas, y otros en medio de su categórico realismo mágico con tintes de fantasía urbana. Mis cuentos favoritos: "Me alquilo para soñar", "Solo vine a hablar por teléfono", y "La luz es como el agua". Son historias asfixiantes que, aunque pueden no necesitar un comienzo y un final establecidos, nos transportan a entornos de ensueño que liberan toda una catarsis de angustia. Algunos de los demás cuentos son fácilmente olvidables o podrían parecer inacabados, aunque esta apreciación es totalmente subjetiva. Una pieza más del rompecabezas literario de Gabo, que tal vez sea prudente re-leer cada ciertos años. Y una adición más a mi objetivo de leer más libros de autores Colombianos. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m currently in a reading slump where I’m reading the first 50 pages of books and then start a new one. And now I’m reading four books all of a sudden! Does this happen to anyone else? 📘📘📘 One of the books I’m reading right now is “A Girl Goes Into the Forest” by @pegapursell. It’s a short story collection that’s a mixture of fables, sorrow, and relationships—all with the forest as a metaphor. 🌲🌲🌲 #currentlyreading #books #reading #booktube #bookstagram #bookworm

So moving sucks. House hunting sucks. It all sucks. You’d think after years of military life we’d be used to it, but turns out moving to a place you intend to stay indefinitely, is actually harder. So today I decided I needed a little book therapy, so to the thrift store I went! I think I found some good stuff! Do you see any favorites? . . . #readallsummer #ilovetoread #books #bookstagram #bookstagramnewbie #newtobookstagram #readersofinsta #readersgonnaread #reading #readingislife #girlswhoread #booksonbooks #booksbooksbooks #bookstagrammer #stackofbooks #booksandreading #books 📚 #ilovebooks #thriftstoreshopping #thriftstorebooks #retailtherapy #bookbuyingtherapy #movingsucks

love this pic by @yasofthemonth aaaaand love this book!!! it’s been a while but i’m glad to say im back with my reviews and book pics!! might as well start with a book i was waiting for since i read saint anything!! here is the goodreads bio: mma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges. Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family—her grandmother and cousins she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl. When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is divided into two people as well. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her. Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well. For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her will win out? i ADORED this book! i loved saylors character and development. i also loved her development and ROO I LOVED TOO WOW I WANT HIM AMIRITE?! saylors dad and step mom are quite lovable until one moment when the step mom shows how supportive she is and how she isn’t just marrying saylors dad, but also ready to be a mother. i missed the typical sarah dessen setting but LOVED this change up! it was different and fun and exciting to learn more about it! i also loved the other characters and the mysteries of saylors mom!!! 10 out of 10! #sarahdessen #therestofthestory #yasofthemonth #books #reading #lovereading #lovebooks #bookrecs #love

A novel that kicks off with a bang and never lets up. The tension that the story emits from page one hooked me and the writing had me freaked out on so many occasions. I love a book that can bring you in like that and Dean Koontz never disappoints!

Think about it for a minute....what book pops into your mind immediately that just stuck with you for a long time. Even now when you are thinking about that book you can see the characters and remember events in the book. The heartbreak, the sadness, the joy.📚📚📚❤😊 🌸 Whatever it was. It still resonates within you.

Favorite reading spot? I’m currently reading SAY YOU STILL LOVE ME by @katucker_ ( @atriabooks #partner ) and wishing I was reading inside this painting😝 — Ok, so I’m 65 pages in and I’m loving it🙌🏼. I love stories that weave between the past and present and this one does it 👏🏼so👏🏼well👏🏼! I love Piper as a character. She’s so badass in the workplace and I love reading her interactions with her friends. I also love that the past takes place at a summer camp. Definitely makes me wish I went to camp at least once as a kid🌲 — A special thank you to @isabelrosedas for being so kind and gifting me a copy! — Synopsis: Life is a mixed bag for Piper Calloway. On the one hand, she’s a twenty-nine-year-old VP at her dad’s multibillion-dollar real estate development firm, and living the high single life with her two best friends in a swanky downtown penthouse. On the other hand, she’s considered a pair of sexy legs in a male-dominated world and constantly has to prove her worth. Plus she’s stuck seeing her narcissistic ex-fiancé—a fellow VP—on the other side of her glass office wall every day. Things get exponentially more complicated for Piper when she runs into Kyle Miller—the handsome new security guard at Calloway Group, and coincidentally the first love of her life. The guy she hasn’t seen or heard from since they were summer camp counselors together. The guy from the wrong side of the tracks. The guy who apparently doesn’t even remember her name. Piper may be a high-powered businesswoman now, but she soon realizes that her schoolgirl crush is still alive and strong, and crippling her concentration. What’s more, despite Kyle’s distant attitude, she’s convinced their reunion isn’t at all coincidental, and that his feelings for her still run deep. And she’s determined to make him admit to them, no matter the consequences. (Out 8/6)

Filthy Irish by C.M. Seabrook & Frankie Love Synopsis When the summer nanny arrives, I know the job is more than she expected. After my mam passed, it's been me looking after my five feral brothers. I'm running the family bed & breakfast to boot. I need her help - I'm over my head as it is. And the moment I meet Wendy, I'm also head over heels. She has a way with the boys that is gentle yet firm. But considering she slaps me across the face the day we meet - I'm gonna need to win her over one charming line at a time. Trouble is, I'm a filthy Irishman. And she's the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Dear Reader, Ewan O'Brion may be Irish, but he's never gotten lucky. Double virgins mean double the fun. And this time we promise there will be more than one happy ending. Wink. Wink.

Matilda Bookshop June Book Club, words by @_mollymollymurn_ . This month at Matilda Bookshop Book Club, we read the wondrous, sublime and unsettling Lanny by Max Porter. Porter writes with the sensitivity and sensibility of a poet and his experimentation in layout and typography is beautifully realised. Our book club agreed that to read this story, is to be immersed in a language and style that reminded us how viscerally words can move and inspire us . Set in an English village, with a glorious and unusual child, Lanny, at its heart, this story houses so many themes—the interconnectedness of all things, the powerful force of nature and what it means to be at odds with nature, small town intolerance and small town generosity, friendship between children and adults, parenting, the transformative power of art and folklore—and yet the writing is spare. Whittled, even. . Our book club felt very lucky to have had this book cross our paths. The best literature, we agreed, shows us something new.

* memory from 3 years ago * This month's book is The Autumn of the Patriarch. This stream of consciousness writing with little punctuation and no paragraphs is very hard to physically read. The language is the main exhausting character aside from the General of the Universe. It's been a 3 week slog for me and although the cover says it deserves to be read more than twice, I think I will leave at one - albeit a good one. This is from a book critic "The novel is unendingly bizarre and fevered, but ultimately not difficult. Yet it is difficult to enter: a densely rich and fluid pudding that begins at the end and makes Faulknerian leaps forward and backward in time. Sentences at times run on for three pages, with dialogue neither quoted nor paragraphed. García Márquez has compounded the problems by making the novel a puzzle of pronouns, consistently changing narrative points of view in mid-sentence. For instance: ". . .he saw more infamy and more ingratitude than had ever been seen and wept over by my eyes since the day I was born, mother. . ." The he, the my, and the I all refer to the General." #bigbooks #gabrielgarciamarquez #tbt #reading #australianwinter #books #bookstagram #booknerd

Dneska jsem svým způsobem ukončila roční experiment. Vybrala jsem dotazníky a udělala rozhovory s dětmi. Poděkovala vyučujícím a odjela. Dál se tomu budu věnovat, ale teď už jiným způsobem. Je až děsivé, jak ten rok utekl. A rozhodně bych neměnila. Dalo mi to spoustu nových podnětů a myšlenek. Ale o tom třeba jindy. Odpoledne ale bylo ve znamení odpočinku. Usnula jsem (což vysvětluje, proč jsou tři ráno a já nespím), zašla nakoupit, dala si zmrzku, hranolky (uznávám, dnešek nebyl zrovna zdravý den), chvilku trénovala na kytaru a nakonec jsem udělala domácí koblížky. A teď v noci se mi povedlo přelouskat kus Elantris, takže je možná dočtení téhle knihy v dohledu. Jen jsem opravdu zvědavá, jak zítra budu vstávat. Rozhodně ne s úsměvem. #girl #smile #summer #glasses #tattoo #inked #ink #cute #goodday #experiment #somethingisending #reading #elantris #sp ⭕️lu

Me hice el propósito de leer mínimo 8 libros a partir de este mes a lo que resta del año. Llevo 3 (creo qe voy bien). . Siempre me ha emocionado entrar a librerías o bibliotecas pero la verdad nunca me obligue hacerme un hábito aparte no sabía que comprar me perdía entre tantas opciones. Cuando entré a la uni fue cuando empecé a leer más pero me limitaba a libros relacionados a mk profesión (psicología). . Ahora quiero leer sobre diferentes géneros literarios. Unos días me dedique a buscar referencias de algunos libros para saber por donde empezar. Este que estoy leyendo tenía muy buenas reseñas y la verdad es, que si me esta gustando bastante. Después les hago un pequeño resumen. . . #Book #bookstagram #reading #lee #lectura #tea #teatime

I finished Swallows and Amazons last night, a very enjoyable piece of children’s fiction, escapism and nostalgia . Something I enjoyed a lot this time from my ‘children’s therapist’ eyes was how much freedom children appeared to have in the 1930s when Arthur Ransome was writing, to take risks and explore outside without adult supervision. Children’s play has become less and less risky over the intervening decades, and I can’t help but feel it’s the poorer for it . I saw a horrendous ad on my Facebook feed this morning from a tutoring company arguing that more leisure time meant students would lose focus on their studies; this in Hong Kong where learners as young as 3 are tutored to within an inch of their life, and play is seen as a waste of valuable time. This also in HK where there is an astonishingly high rate of child anxiety, depression and suicide. I wonder how long it will take for people to make the connection - it certainly hasn’t happened yet . So here I am at one of the schools I work in, soaking up the glorious sunshine on my last day here before they break for the summer. Wishing all these kiddos holidays full of freedom to play, with risk, without supervision, outdoors, and for no particular purpose 💪💪

Delivered!!! 📫📦 so excited to dive into this devotional! It really goes well with my newest book collection 😆 Sacred Marriage from the same author. New goals, to be the best person I can be that God called me to be, with all my imperfections ☺️ and how to be the best wife I can be for my husband. Everyday is a battle and fight spiritually, I need every truth, wisdom and biblical encouragement to stand all the wiles of the enemy! 🙏❤️ most often they start from within, like the whispers of lies from the enemy and situations from our past and childhood that we have hidden and carried throughout the years. And allowed us to control our emotions and thoughts. I have learned that changes must start from within. With each passing season, new challenges comes. Just because I have been born again, it doesn’t make me free from suffering, pain, trials and tribulations. But those circumstances allowed me to deepen my relationship with Jesus and help me see life differently. And I am thankful for the journey and the blessings ❤️ So here’s to new season, new studies and next chapter! 🙏❤️ God is good!!!

Good to Great by Jim Collins • "The single biggest danger in business and life, other than outright failure, is to be successful without being resolutely clear about why you are successful in the first place." - Robert Burgelman • This book was given to me for free, which in hindsight doesn't even seem monetarily fair when compared to the amount of value/insight I've gained after reading it. I love when a book comes along and totally wrecks my mental stagnation; shakes me me up; and injects a whole new vigor into what I'm doing. If I could sum this book up into my own words it would be, "Wow, someone who finally understands me!" • I always thought I was great, but now I know why I'm great 💪🏼 • #book #bookstagram #bookshelf #read #reading #authorsofinstagram #author #learn #learning #selfhelp #motivationalquotes #motivation #inspiration #inspire #inspired #great #greatness #goat #literature #reader #readersofinstagram #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurs #WatchMeDoIt #photography #productphotography #commericalphotography #products
