Yesterday was Jane Austen's death anniversary - an author whose books I love and have reread many times. I still reach for them to reread my favourite sections.
Pictured here are a couple of bookmarks I made for a bookmark exchange. I hope that the recipient finds them a little whimsical addition to her bookmark collection.📚

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What a great book, the author has such a clarity in explaining all her points and she has such a powerful voice. I cannot explain enough why this is such an important read. The book does such a great job of explaining the kind of treatment minorities have endured through throughout history, i can honestly say that i myself didn't know much about it and i gained a lot knowledge from it.
This is definitely a must - read for everyone.

I went to @thebroadmuseum with my cousins yesterday and found that this work by Barbara Kruger really goes with my most recent read from @haymarketbooks. This painting was inspired from Roe v. Wade decision, and it’s an unfortunate and ridiculous reality that the bodies of women— especially women of color— are still being regulated and violently affected by various institutional systems of oppression. (Looking at you, potential all conservative Supreme Court...... and also you, ICE....) The world is fucked up. But I will say that the little bit I’ve begun reading of Feminist Freedom Fighters is hopeful, inspiring, and empowering— a reminder that while our bodies are still very much battlegrounds, the fight we’re facing can and must be conquered together.

I heard about Rupi Kaur's poetry through Instagram and so I thought what a better platform to praise her book than the very platform that introduced me to it. What I love the most is how she expresses her most intimate feelings, pain, love and suffering through a simpler language and beautiful sketches. Almost anyone could decipher the feeling.
For the longest time I had been postponing getting a hand on this book, until @oursharedshelf put this up as the book of the month for jul/aug and I had myself thinking, what a better time, than to start now! I must admit that these verses leave a lot of unspoken feelings to be felt , so brace yourself!!
This book has such a beautiful and insightful collection of verses. Reading this has been a Felt experience.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I’m hoping to read it this summer. I know it’s been very popular so I’m looking forward to it.

Have you read this one?

I just picked up the latest edition of the Vintage Classics Woolf Series, Flush. Beautifully designed by Marimekko designer Aino-Maija Metsola, Flush tells the story of an English cocker spaniel by the same name belonging to Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Do you see the dog in the cover design now? I only saw it after I read what the book was about. Woolf learned of the dog through the Brownings’ love letters and found him so amusing, she couldn’t help but write about him.

How do we feel about book collections constantly adding new titles? Do you find it exciting? Frustrating? Does your wallet weep heavy, salt-filled tears like mine does?

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
▪️
An absolutely beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking collection of poems. ▪️
Although it’s a quick read, it deserves to be slowly read and re-read. ▪️
A must read for anyone dealing with a breakup.

Wednesday afternoon. I’ve been wanting to read this book for several months now, today I finally begin 🖤

I've read 40 books so far in 2018. I have not finished Persepolis 2:The Return but thus far Satrapi's graphic novel about growing up as a young girl in the midst of Iranian war has to be one of the most enlightening and educational stories yet. I have a feeling this one will stay with me a while after I'm done reading it, as all I can currently do is obsess over it. I'm so glad to find out Emma Watson promoted it for her feminist book club Our Shared Shelf, bringing light to this subject matter which otherwise perhaps some people would not have previously read. Decided to take a photo like hers because she's iconic and books like Persepolis, never go out of style.

This should be your next summer read. It’s so amusing, and although the story, or main plot, itself isn’t something completely new, there is so much insight about same sex relationships in a conservative society. Regardless of the era the book is meant to be set in, there are lots of communities that frown upon such a relationship, if not outright condemn it, and just reading a different perspective casts a new light on things.

Grief is odd, one minute you are fine, the next minute it washes over you, just like a wave that came out of nowhere.
Have you discovered @rupikaur_ ? If not, you should. A modern poet who talks the truth about life. Her book Milk and Honey is the @oursharedshelf book club book of the moment.

Cuando era chiquita soñaba con ser 🎤 #cantante 💃#modelo 🏫 #maestra 📚 #escritora. Y a veces llegue a estar cerquita de ser esas cosas, porque todos somos un *de todo* muy grande. Pero lo que nunca pensé es que iba a ser #feminist 💪y dejar esa pequeña marca a lo largo del camino ✏️. Hoy estoy leyendo sobre #MujeresInsolentes 👩🏫 de la historia para, algún día y si tengo la oportunidad, mostrarle a les niñes que sean mis alumnes que hay muchas mujeres 👩‍❤️‍👩 con las cuales sentirse identificade, que ellas también escribieron la historia 📖 y que todes podemos hacer una diferencia en el mundo 🌍
.
De todas las cosas que quería ser cuando era chiquita, 💫 elegir ser docente mientras se desata esta ola feminista 💚 fue la mejor decisión que podía tomar 🌷

Gracias @mauritojavierlucas por dejarme el libro de @felipe.pigna 📗

QUE LIVRO,QUE MULHER, SENHORAS E SENHORES! 👏👏👏👏👏
Muito mais do que lutar contra um grupo radical, Malala luta contra séculos de tradição em um mundo onde a mulher não mais relevante é que uma mercadoria nos mercados centrais. A luta pelo direito de estudar, que tantos brasileiros desprezam diariamente, mostram os abismos culturais no mundo, os níveis e perigos de não se calar em um ambiente dominado pelo terror e o caos.
Malala esteve no Brasil este mês e foi vítima, embora provavelmente não saiba, dos filhos de um certo "mito" que postaram em suas redes sociais que a mesma prega o desarmamento, porém, anda com +-16 seguranças armados.
Malala foi alvejada na cabeça pelo Talibã e sobreviveu para contar sua luta ao mundo e ganhar o prêmio Nobel da paz, porém, ainda é um desafio ao grupo terrorista que não esconde que sua cabeça e um prêmio aos mesmos. Oremos por Malala, agradeçamos por sua força, aprendamos com sua obra, sejamos Malala. #oursharedshelf #fightlikeagirl #malala #malalayousafzai #feminism #empoweringwomen #empowerment #proud #nevergiveup #neveragain #book #bookworm #livros #bomdia #gutenmorgen #goodmorning #bonjour #buongiorno #buenosdias

My go to type of book when I feel in a bit of a book rut are light mystery reads. It was a pleasant surprise stumbling upon this series - chockful of humour and the twist was not evident (to me at least) until the end. This book was also full of London Underground history. Loved it so much that I went out and bought the rest of the series. So much for trying to shrink my TBR this year.🤣

Este es el libro del mes de julio y agosto de @oursharedshelf, tenía mucho escuchando sobre esta autora y quería ver qué tal era su poesía. Me deja un poco de sentimientos encontrados porque el tema del que habla se me hace bastante personal y está divido en 4 partes hurting, loving, breaking and healing. Hay algunos poemas que se me hicieron buenos que podrían ser considerados poesía moderna pero creo que hay algunos que son como oraciones partidas a la mitad. Y creo que la parte más profunda y más completa es la primera. ¿Han leído a esta autora? #milkandhoney #rupikaur #poesia #poesiamoderna #oss #oursharedshelf #paradalector #clubdelectura #poetry #poemario #lecheymiel #bestseller #nytimes

O Ódio que você semeia de @Angiethomas 💪🏾🥀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The hate u give little infants fucks everybody (T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Era uma vez um garoto de olhos castanhos e covinhas. Eu o chamava de Khalil. O mundo o chamava de bandido.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“ O ódio que você semeia” é um livro necessário. Ele é narrado por Star, uma adolescente de 16 anos que divide sua vida entre o Gueto, onde mora com a sua família, e a escola particular em que estuda. Ela parece conseguir conciliar esses dois mundos distintos até que seu melhor amigo é assassinado por um policial na sua frente. Agora, Star percebe que precisa buscar por justiça, por ela, por seu amigo e por todos de seu bairro - Para isso, a melhor arma é a sua voz.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Com uma leitura leve, rápida e muitas vezes, engraçada, “ O ódio que você semeia” aborda temas de extrema importância como racismo, abuso policial, família e amizade. É um verdadeiro soco no estômago de tão real.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Isso tudo aconteceu porque ele supôs que não tínhamos boas intenções. Porque somos negros e por causa de onde moramos. Nós éramos dois adolescentes vivendo, sabe? A suposição dele matou Khalil. Poderia ter me matado.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nota: 5+ 🌟

Monday again!
Women who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés is my current reading. A psychological study about the wild woman that inhabits inside us. It is a technical reading, but I'm enjoying it a lot, although it's still too early to say more 🤷🏼. I’ll inform you better ASAP💪🏻.
Has anyone read this book or planning to?
👉🏻 The picture on the cover is "The women running on the beach" by Pablo Picasso. There are plenty of women artists much more interesting than this man to put on a feminist book cover... don’t you think?

¡Lunes de nuevo!
Hoy os dejo mi lectura actual, Mujeres que Corren con los Lobos de Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Un estudio psicológico sobre la mujer salvaje que habita en cada una de nosotras. Es una lectura muy densa y algo técnica, pero aunque lleve poquito he de reconocer que me está gustando mucho, aunque aún es pronto para decir más 🤷🏼‍♀️. Os iré informando 💪🏻.
¿Alguien ha leído este libro o tiene intención de hacerlo? 👉🏻 El cuadro de la portada es “Dos mujeres corriendo en la playa” de Pablo Picasso. Que anda que no hay mujeres artistas con cuadros mucho más interesantes que los de este señor para poner en un libro feminista...

Just a few of the books from my TBR pile. A couple of these I’ve had for YEARS (Anna Karenina and Great Apes) and the other 2 I’ve picked up much more recently. Somehow the more recent picks usually seem to win when I pick what to read next but I’m trying to be a lot better about reading some of my older books this year.

Trois millions de filles et de femmes sont prisonnières de l esclavage sexuel.
Ces cinquante dernières années plus de femmes ont été tuées parce qu elles étaient des femmes que d hommes ne l ont été sur les champs de bataille du XXe siècle. Deux millions de petites filles meurent de faim chaque année parce que leur parents ont préféré nourrir et soigner leurs frères. Une femme meurt toutes les minutes en accouchant. Toutes les dix secondes quelque part dans le monde une petite fille est excisee. Trois millions de fillettes sont mutilés chaque année sur le seul continent africain. Cinq mille femme dans le monde meurent chaque année victime de crimes d honneur. En Inde une femme est brûlée vive toutes les deux heures et une petite fille meurt à cause de la discrimination toutes les quatre minutes. Trois millions de femmes sont victimes de fistules obstétricales, des lésions consécutives à un accouchement difficile qui provoquent une incontinence urinaire, voire la mort.

La moitié du ciel souhaite éveiller les consciences, mais aussi entraîner les lecteurs dans son combat.

HEART OF A MAN.
... From the book ‘A Poem Is A BrAve Thing’. Available on amazon and barnes and nobles.

#beaman #strongman #manenough #mendontcry and all the other cliches around the definitions of a man that is as claustrophobic as the other labels, we as mankind (a superior race) wants to often brand people with. Make them choke in it.
... Basking in the glory of an element of ephemeral superiority, we reduce them to a mere cliche, when there exists a beautiful world around us.
