I started reading this while in the middle of another book to check if I liked it. I ended up putting aside the one I was reading and finishing this one instead. It is a story of two people Marianne and Connel who keep finding their way back to each other despite huge differences in personality as well as class. At its heart, it's a love story, complete with all the tropes of one. However somehow it manages to escape the traps of a clichéd contemporary romamce novel. What makes this book for me is the writing style of Sally Rooney. It is crisp, with short sentences and often seems to be detached (like Marianne?). Every now and then though, there are long sentences with too many dependable clauses, (usually from Connel's point of view). What I loved, apart from the way it's written, is Rooney's ability to see things from various perspectives. That's what makes it so insightful. It gives the reader a direct glimpse into the characters they're reading about without resorting to flowery character sketches.
It is not a plot heavy novel in my opinion, but it was a compelling read nevertheless.

I used to bake once a week but now I don't do it much. I would love to start baking more, maybe once every two weeks. There are a lot of recipes I'd love to try: the black forest cake, macarons, pavlova, and some very interesting cupcakes I saw on a website.


These were lemon and pistachios cupcakes. They came a bit short but that can be fixed the next time I bake them. Bite-size deliciousness!


Pictured is one of my favourite books of all time. I literally can't stop thinking about it. I remember all the feelings I experienced when I read it for the first time. A book like this one is a book to cherish forever.


~~~~~~~~~~
Tell me one of your fav books!! I'm willing to expand my never-ending tbr list!

At the start of the year I reorganised my books and put all the ones I hadn't read in this stack on the floor. I decided not to buy any new books (other than my monthly book club book) until I've at least made a dent in my existing ones. Some of these are books I've had on my shelves for years, and giving myself this goal means I'll finally get round to reading books I've overlooked for too long.
.
Something that became really clear to me when I lined all these books up is how relatively narrow my reading tastes are. The majority of these books are fiction, and there isn't a huge amount of diversity in the authors (especially women of colour). This is a consideration that I've become much more aware of since I joined bookstagram, especially after discussions within the community the last few days, which I've been following closely and absorbing, as it's clear I have a lot of work to do.
.
Once I've made a bit more progress through my existing TBR I'm looking forward to introducing more diversity into my future choices. (Not that there is none on my current TBR, but I can do better!) I say this not to virtue-signal or to perform allyship, but because I hope stating my intentions will make me accountable (and also encourage others to self-examine in the same way).
.
Luckily there are so many fantastic accounts giving great recommendations that I don't even have to ask for suggestions - in fact the harder question is how to narrow down the list! A good problem to have. (Seriously though, does anyone else get genuinely stressed about how many good books there are in the world, the majority of which you'll never have time to read? No? Just me?!)

“Some, however, possess an unusually powerful love of the truth, and you children are among the few.”
—————————————————
✍️ I liked pretty much everything about this book, especially since I’m a sucker for puzzles, but I most loved the book’s clear appreciation for the different ways in which people can be intelligent. I have so much love for each of the four children, even Constance (you gotta admit, she’s relatable). Even though this book is meant for younger readers, I think it’s valuable for readers of all ages to get them to think about how we underestimate the abilities and talents of children.
🌟4.5/5. I was thoroughly entertained—and sometimes pretty terrified—throughout.
—————————————————
💭This book has been in my house for forever, but somehow I never got around to reading it in all that time. Very glad I decided to try it.
❓What’s your favorite book from childhood? I think I’ll always have a soft spot for the original Percy Jackson series.

Jak wiecie lub nie, Islandia w 2008 roku stanęła na progu wielkiego kryzysu finansowego. Wtedy rząd postawił na obywateli. Banki, które doprowadziły do takiej sytuacji, zadłużone i niewypłacalne musiały poradzić sobie same. Kraj wyszedł z zapaści. Islandia, wyspa na Oceanie Atlantyckim to ciekawe miejsce do snucia o nim rozmaitych historii. Przykład jednej z nich odnajdujemy w tej książce. Tylko że to nic nowego, choć czyta się szybko i z zaciekawieniem. Islandia z niewiadomych powodów zostaje odcięta od świata, jest tak, jakby wszyscy zapomnieli, że istniał taki kraj. W tej sytuacji rząd musi zapewnić obywatelom warunki do życia i postawić na samowystarczalność. Powrót do korzeni, uprawa roli, hodowla zwierząt, rybołówstwo i wynalazczość o ograniczonych możliwościach. Lektura ciekawa z punktu widzenia rozpadu więzi społecznych, nowej konstrukcji wspólnoty, nowych rządów, praw, obowiązków i dróg, którymi próbuje się do tego doprowadzić. "Z powodu nadużyć rządów dyktatorskich i innych nieudanych eksperymentów z inżynierią społeczną, pojęcie to nie ma najlepszych konotacji. Dlatego uważamy, że rozsądniej posługiwać się przyjemniejszą dla ucha i bardziej współczesną nazwą: zarządzanie zmianami." Rząd przy użyciu prasy, radia, telewizji i sił porządkowych indoktrynuje obywateli. Najważniejsze jest wspólne dążenie do tego, "by naród był solidarny, zwarł szyki i był dumny z tego, co go łączy. Nie możemy pozwolić sobie na słabość, nie możemy tolerować, by hołota różnych nacji włóczyła się tutaj i niszczyła nasze starania. (...) obca krew rozrzedza islandzką, tę którą nasi przodkowie zostawili nam w spadku kosztem wielkich wyrzeczeń.(...) Nie będziemy kalać ich pamięci pozwalając obcokrajowcom rozwadniać substancję narodową." Eliminacja wrogich elementów, opozycji, obcokrajowców, to wszystko już było w innych książkach, ale można przeczytać znowu, nie jest źle.

Picked this up at the library yesterday. As part of the Popsugar challenge I've been looked for a book published posthumously and this is it. Marina Keegan died tragically in a 2012 car crash, shortly after graduation. These are her stories and essays.

As a mom finding fun activities to do with my children is important. I love that the Pan Macmillan line-up includes story CDs, drawing activities, finger prints, colouring in, slime, puzzles, and even a fun pop up book. These are all great ways to have fun with your children this year and encourage time away from technology too. So get ready for 2019 and stock up with these fun crafty things!

Check out my top crafty picks from Pan Macmillan for children of all ages in my new guide on the blog. Which is your favourite?

The quote is from J.M.Coetzee, a South-african writer who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003. I first read a book by him during my studies and it was "Waiting for the barbarians". I participated in an exchange with the University of Amsterdam and we all held lectures and some of them were even published in a book - my first and only publication, but I am still proud of it 😁

At the beginning of the year I read yet another book by Coetzee, Summertime, and found myself questioning how far we, as readers, can and should go to find out more about the authors life. I wrote a short book review and my final thoughts about this topic on the blog. The link is in the bio📚

Dzień dobry? Czy raczej nie pytać?;)
Dziś na blog wskoczy opinia o #zamiana. Widzę, że zdania o niej są podzielone. Według mnie jak na debiut jest naprawdę dobrze, chociaż nie obyło się bez uwag.

Guten Morgen liebe Bücherfreunde,
Nutzt ihr eigentlich Bookish Maps um zwischendurch nachzusehen, wo sich die Protagonisten grade aufhalten? Ich liebe es, die Handlungsorte auf einer Karte mitzuverfolgen und zu sehen, wie ein Land oder eine Stadt aufgebaut ist. Durch Bookish Map bekomme ich eine viel detailliertere Vorstellung davon, wie es in einer fiktiven Welt aussieht und mit welchen Lebensumständen ihre Bewohner konfrontiert werden. Meine Lieblingskarten sind die von Nevernight, Die Chroniken der Verbliebenen und vom Grishaverse
.

Good morning dear bookfriends,
Do you use bookish maps to look up where the protagonist is? I love to do so and to see how a land or city is built up. With the help of bookish maps I get a better imagination of how a fictional world looks like and in which circumstances its citizens live. My favourite bookish maps are from The Remnant Chronicles, Nevernight/Godsgrave and the Grishaverse .

Judul : Memeluk Takdir
Penulis : Nurul Miresi
Penerbit : Grasindo
Tebal : 142 hal
•••
❝Itulah yang namanya takdir, Mbak. Memang garisnya harus seperti ini.❞ - hal. 131

Kisah Wafa dan Mentari—dua sepupu yang saling jatuh cinta—ini memiliki konflik yang benar-benar menguras emosi sejak dua puluh halaman pertama. Bisa bayangin, gimana mulai bab awal aku udah mewek bombay? Dan ternyata gak cuma di awal aja dong, pertengahan dan halaman-halaman akhir aku mewek lagi ehehehe.

Tenang, nggak cuma ada sedihnya. Novel ini pun diselingi kisah manis yang sukses bikin aku senyum-senyum sendiri hahaha... Jadi, perpaduan antara sedih, senang, jengkel pun semuanya sangat pas. Dan aku pribadi sangat suka sama buku yang bisa bikin pembaca nangis.

Dengan narasi yang mengalir aku sama sekali nggak bosen walau cukup banyak konflik sampingan. Justru dengan munculnya konflik baru, aku semakin penasaran akan ending dari kisah Wafa dan Mentari. Karena kalau diteliti, semua konflik dan tokohnya saling berkesinambungan satu sama lain.

Setelah membaca novel ini, aku jadi semakin belajar untuk lebih ikhlas, tidak terpuruk dan tetap melanjutkan hidup walaupun diterpa masalah seberat apa pun. Karena lagi-lagi, semua manusia sudah memiliki takdirnya masing-masing 💞

Kekurangan novel ini? Well, aku nggak menemukan kekurangan yang berarti selain beberapa typo dan kurang tebel hahaha... Selain itu, menurutku juga fontnya agak kekecilan ya ehehehe 😂 But, diluar itu semua, novel ini tetap bagus karena pesan moralnya sangat waw 💃Intinya, novel ini recommended loh serius 😉

Yasss, terakhir terima kasih untuk Kak Nurul yang telah menciptakan sosok Wafa dan Tiara :') so yeah, aku sangat kagum sama mereka, terutama Tiara 🙈 Dan maaf bila ada kekurangan dan kata-kata yang kurang berkenan hehehe Sukses dan ditunggu karya lainnya, Kak Nurul 💞

50/50

Torn between the half of the book that is incredibly beautiful depictions of imagery and scenery of the places HCA traveled to and the little drops of inspiration for his stories.
And the other half that is needless explanations for things that don't matter and tons of name-dropping.

Almost more than Turkish Delight, apples remind me of Narnia. They feature quite a bit in The Magician's Nephew, and, for some reason, the beginning of the Prince Caspian movie always leaves me craving apples even though no one eats any in that scene. What foods do you associate with books?

😱Я ем книги??
_
😏 Просто на отдыхе буквально их «проглатывала», а в рабочем режиме вообще не успеваю читать!
_
👇Пара обзоров из «съеденного»:
_
📖Франк Тилье «Шарко»
🏅7/10
🤩 Кому понравится: любителям детективов.
Динамично, захватывающе, многосторонне и с очень правдоподобно прописанными характерами.
🖊Супруга детектива совершает преступление, которое выводит следователей на запутанную паутину заговоров и нечеловечных безумств.
💩 Оставлю это поле пустым, так как неожиданно для меня автор оказался вполне себе👍
_
📖 Стивен #Кинг, «Воспарение»
🏅 Рейтинг: 5/10
🤩Кому понравится: тем, кто ни разу не читал Кинга
🖊 Рассказ о мужчине, который начал стремительно терять вес (не путать с другим произведением - «Худеющий»). Попутно в его маленьком американском городке селятся по соседству две лесбиянки-рестораторы, против которых ополчился город, и главный герой переосмысливает всю свою жизнь🥴
💩 Я поклонник Стивена Кинга, но это «ну такое».

🧐Что бы ещё (реально) хорошего прочитать?

(🇫🇷⤵️)To all Addicted to You fans, are you team #lilo , #raisy or #coballoway
🔥
My first post in 2019
A unique series
A gang like no other: sisters, boyfriends, family, kids, enemies: a complex environment written with such talent by the wonderful sisters @kbmritchie .
🔥
The 8th book in the Addicted series, and I don’t feel that this series is about books anymore; it is rather a means of staying with characters that we love and know even more than real people around us!
We know where they come from, how they’re all different yet all related, each one playing an essential role in the group.
They face obstacles, they stand up for each other, they grow up and develop ... right in front of us
🔥
CONNOR COBALT and ROSE CALLOWAY are not typical: Their love is inward and intellectual and they love verbal sparring and mind-challenging games
▫️
They seem stiff and detached but deep down they love their family more than anything and are ready to protect them at any price.
And in this book, they want to shield their children from traumatizing cameras and paparazzi because they’ve been through it and they believe that their children don’t deserve that
▫️
The battle is not an easy one
Facing the media uproar comes at a high price
The past cant be hidden anymore
Who is Connor Cobalt? Only Rose knows him well ... except that now the media is trying to expose him in public .
▫️
✍🏻“I am proud of the choices I’ve made in life, and I won’t let other people dig beneath my skin and make me feel ashamed of who I am.”
▫️
✍🏻“There are rare people who will fuel the fire inside of you, who will awaken a dormant passion, who will challenge you, who will push you and better you. She alone is my rarity.”
▫️
📝The book was a bit slow at the beginning; I love Rose and Connor but I can’t understand all their thoughts and actions ... and then midway the book picked up and I couldn’t put it down! The ending? Simply amazing
▫️
📖 CR: A Long Way Down
and yes I am definitely team RAISY 😍 .
▫️
Buddy read with @bookgerm .

One of the first pieces of advice most writers have beaten into them is “Show don’t tell.” The reason this advice is hammered home so hard is because it is, in fact, good advice. The story is almost always better when you show something, rather than when you tell it. It immerses the reader more in the world, the stories, and the characters who are living in it. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Check out my blog (link in bio) for how I suggest handling exposition when you have to tell instead of show.

Day 16: Falling in Love for #kbookschallenge .
.
Here are two lovely books sitting in my TBR, hopefully part of #readyourshelf where I actually read the books I buy. I can be like a dog sighting a squirrel with any new book in my vision, but I've heard such great things about both of these beauties. .
I'm ready to fall in love with these books about falling in love. ❤

Have you read His Fair Assassins? I finally finished up this series last year, and I couldn’t believe how long it took me to get to this series. I had these books on my bookshelves for almost two years and finally read it last year. This series was so good that I read it one after the other and binged through it. Now and days it’s so rare for me to finish up trilogies, I was so surprised with how much I just loved this series. •

What book or series did you end up finally reading that’s surprised you? How long did it take you to pick it up?
