Decided it was a good time to join in, and to read @oursharedshelf’s book selection for September/October. I must admit I’ve never #read anything by #DaphneDuMaurier, but #Rebecca seems like the perfect one for me to start with. A #book that ties in well with the onset of #autumnal days, and gloomy skies. Oh, and yes, I am eating cake for #breakfast! #oursharedshelf #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booklovers #books #oatlatte #vegancake #coffee #bostonteaparty #btpcafes

😁 Thanks for the fun fact 'best' Rebecca 👍@beckibunn_ ・・・
I’m beyond happy that #EmmaWatson’s bookclub @oursharedshelf are reading #Rebecca by #DaphneDuMaurier this month, because it’s a bloody fantastic book about a women’s place. 📕 Fun Fact: The film ‘Rebecca’ was released on 27th March 1940 - exactly 60 years before the best Rebecca ever entered this Earth 💁🏻‍♀️😂 #bookclub#booklovers#currentlyreading#oursharedshelf#feministliterature#feministreads#coffeeandbooks#readingisfundamental#bookstagram

Even in a desert, dusty and abandoned, Emma Watson’s Sept/Oct book club pick has found me 📚🌍 It is fate and the blessings of the magical Emma are real, guys ✨ (sorry I don’t have a cool aesthetic; I only have so much to work with here 🤷🏼‍♀️) #oursharedshelf

SP🎃🎃KY TREAT 📚 the Sept / Oct @oursharedshelf members’ choice winner is Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.
•••
It’s a gothic thriller with three well-drawn female characters and some prophetic feminist themes. Don’t want to give anything more away 👻 this one’s a creepy classic! ENJ🍬Y!

and yes, that is Yoda.

🐜Hej x. Postanowiłam z okazji wybrania w #OurSharedShelf (@emmawatson @oursharedshelf) Rebeki autorstwa Daphne du Maurier, wrzucić ją i tutaj.🐜
.
.
.
🐜Słynne pierwsze zdanie Rebeki tj. 'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again' pewnie wielu z was jest znane. Często pojawia się w innych książkach, czy filmach; do prozy tej autorki czy do klasycznych filmów realizowanych na podstawie jej książek powraca się wciąż i wciąż, vide ostatnio choćby prześwietna 'Nić widmo' P. T. Andersona. Du Maurier pisze klimatycznie, kreśli zacne studium psychiki swoich postaci, a sama książka, co podkreślono w #oss przechodzi test Bechdel; trzy wiodące postacie kobiece są wyraźnie zarysowane i sportretowane nie tylko w odniesieniu do mężczyzn.
Myślę, ze współcześnie więcej osób zna film niż książkę, zresztą du Maurier cały czas jest na nowo ekranizowana, ale warto ją i przeczytać, ponieważ w dużej mierze film i ta akurat książka się od siebie znacznie różnią. Ja zresztą polecam bardziej 'Rebekę' z powodu słów niż z powodu fabuły. Klimat, zwłaszcza gdy główna bohaterka przyjeżdża już do osławionego Manderley, budowany jest naprawdę zręcznie.🐜
.
.
.
🐜Oprócz książki zachęcam też do przeczytania poświęconych jej tematom na #OurSharedShelf, czy przyjrzenia się życiorysowi du Maurier, który rzuca nowe światło na wiele poruszanych przez nią problemów.🐜
.
.
.
🐜I to właściwie tyle na dzisiaj. Oglądam miniserial 'Alicja', ciekawa interpretacja. Jak ktoś lubi motyw, można spojrzeć.🐜

Rebecca has been sitting on my shelf for so long and I’ve just never got round to reading it 🤷🏻‍♀️ But now that @oursharedshelf has announced it as their book of the month, it’s the perfect excuse to get it read! •

A book about a woman who struggles to find her identity when her new home is a shrine to the ghost of the woman who came before 💀


I’m shouting out and spamming everyone who can guess where that skyline is! 👆🏼

I have always loved books and reading. However, throughout my lifetime, I’ve had an interesting relationship with poetry - periodically falling in and out of love with it. In school, deciphering the meanings and counting beats felt like a chore. Now, enter @RupiKaur_, whose poems give words to feelings. They aren’t full of hidden meaning or ambiguous. They are direct and gut punching. She brings what once felt like something I would only read in an academic context into my everyday world. I understand what she writes because they reflect some of my emotions, some of my experiences. If I am ever struggling to explain my inner thoughts/feelings, there is a high chance I can find the words for them through her work. Thank you for birthing such brilliance, Rupi! ❤️ #NationalReadABookDay #MilkAndHoney 🥛🍯 #OurSharedShelf
