FROM THE CORNER OF THE OVAL (memoir by former White House staffer Beck Dorey-Stein): Oh boy am I torn about this one. Maybe I didn't read the description closely enough or it's one of those cases where I should've read other reviews first. But this was so different than what I expected. Have you ever felt like something you read wasn't at all what you expected, for better or worse?
.
Yes, this is a chronicle of a staffer's time at the White House during the Obama administration. There are lots of funny and poignant anecdotes about POTUS and the people around him. As a stenographer, she is in the unique position of observing many events big and small from the sidelines, and her storytelling is enjoyable.
.
What I did not anticipate was the rollercoaster ride that was this woman's love life in her late 20s, which seemed to dominate the book. (Spoilers) Her ongoing affair with a man in another relationship (when she herself was in a relationship for a time) made me cringe over and over. But I sat with it and kept listening and challenged myself. Why am I judging this woman so hard? Why do I get angry with her every time she can't resist this guy who is clearly a serial cheater? Why do I think less of her (and this book) for having so much boy drama??
.
In the end I felt like I 1) really enjoyed the trip down memory lane of the Obama presidency and 2) learned a lot about my own biases and assumptions about relationships, fidelity, and love. If infidelity is a trigger for you this is not the book for you; I felt like I was able to appreciate her story in the end, and it's admirable she was able to grow from those experiences. I do hope she finds happiness and fulfilment in whatever comes next for her, and that she keeps writing along the way.

Book #2 for 2019: I have a vested interested in Korean things after living in Seoul for a year ... this book was absolutely insane. It’s crazy to think while I was bombing around Seoul all privileged AF teaching people English someone not that far away was slowly dying in a concentration type camp. How is this still a thing?!

Today’s #libraryhaul ♥️♥️♥️ Now I just need to get myself in gear and get some reading finished!!
.
I am in a weird reading slump, and it feels like I’ve been in it FOREVER! I’m enjoying everything I’m reading, but I’m just having a hard time focusing.
.
QOTD: Do you have any tips to break out of a slump?

Routine
.
.
Get yourself in a routine to write every day or every second day. We all know that it takes about a month to develop a consistent habit, and so don't worry if you slip up or you have to force yourself to write for the first little while. It will become easier. Some people prefer to write early in the morning before work or in the late hours of the night. Choose what is best for you. As mentioned above, don't stress out about making huge commitments off the bat, start small and work your way up if it's working out.

In our story, you can sense that wedding bells are forth coming once the pages close. But in real life some men always complain, well, if you love him why do you need the ring. Sir, its about the commitment and the knowledge that you want her special brand of love forever. Divorce rates and all those statistics not withstanding.⠀

Books everywhere... literally 👀
.
.
This is my current work stack that has accumulated; either from being lent out or finishing and forgetting to take them home. I do enjoy getting to my humble cubicle and seeing my books. It’s kind of a home-y feeling 💭
.
.
From this stack I’ve read 4 of 7 which include:
📕 The Universe of Us 📕 Our Kind of Cruelty 📕 Baby Teeth 📕 The Wisdom Of Sundays 📕
.
.
Anyone read any of these?
.
.
Happy Friday to all! 🤘🏼
Very happy to have a three day weekend! 😆

Hey bookworms! Hope you guys have had an amazing week! It’s been super busy on my end so sorry I haven’t been as active as I would have liked (I know it was my New Years resolution - whoops 🙈🙊), and after not having a lot of time to read, I am SO hyped to start The Wicked King! I have heard great things about it; also, who else thinks that these book covers are absolutely GORGEOUS 🙋‍♀️



QOTD: Do you prefer to read a book as soon as it comes out, or would you prefer to wait until the series is complete? ‘


AOTD: Although I would much prefer to have a complete series (there is nothing like the torture of waiting for the next book to come out!), I don’t think I could resist a new book from my favourite authors! ‘

✨Потерянные Боги✨
🗝Только что вышедший из тюрьмы Чет Моран стремится к новой жизни. Со своей беременной женой Триш он покидает город, чтобы начать все сначала. Но древнее зло не спит, и то, что казалось надежной гаванью, может оказаться чем-то совершенно иным… Пойманный в ловушку неведомым древним ужасом и зверски убитый, Чет быстро понимает, что боль, страдания и смерть - отнюдь не привилегия живых. И что еще хуже, теперь жизни и сами души его жены и нерожденного ребенка тоже висят на волоске. Чтобы спасти их, он должен отправиться в глубины Чистилища и найти священный ключ, способный восстановить естественное равновесие жизни и смерти. Одинокий, растерянный и проклятый, Чет собирается с духом и шагает навстречу невообразимым ужасам в темную пучину смерти. Заброшенный в царство безумия и хаоса, где древние боги сражаются за мертвецов с демонами, а души плетут заговоры, надеясь свергнуть своих господ, он ведет опасную игру, чтобы спасти свою семью. Ведь проигрыш сулит ему вечное проклятие.

Продуманный мир, герои которым сопереживаешь, шокирующая развязка...
Но, будучи уже знакомой с творчеством Брома, я и не ожидала хэппи-энда😜
А теперь подробнее📚:
🗝Выйдя на свободу, Чет Моран твёрдо намерен начать жизнь с чистого листа. Для начала он отправляется к своей беременной подруге Триш (они встречались до того как он попал в тюрьму) намереваясь сделать ей предложение.
Семья девушки, и раньше была не в восторге от ее выбора, а теперь и подавно.
Чет предлагает все ещё любящей его Триш, сбежать из дома, к его бабушке Ламии, голос которой он иногда слышит в своей голове.
Побег проходит не так безоблачно, как хотелось бы, Чет сбивает человека (в будущем ему это ещё ой как аукнется) и теперь бабушкин домик в дали от цивилизации их единственное спасение.
В старом доме, на острове молодых людей, встречает добродушная, гостеприимная старушка...
Новое место жительства кажется им чудесным но, выйдя посреди ночи на крыльцо подышать, Чет оказывается убит.
Вот тут-то и начинается все самое интересное🔥🌪🔥

My latest book is A Homemade Life. I’ve had it on my shelf for ages and was inspired to finally read it after working my way through the early episodes of the @whatshouldireadnext podcast, and it was recommended to one of the guests. I’m really enjoying the podcast and have already added several books to my TBR (just have to read some more off the shelf before I can lift the no-book-buying embargo).
.
.
The book is a collection of recipes with short memoirs that recount why the dish means so much to Molly Wizenberg, who began food blogging while studying in Paris. My husband @msg oodstagram started Foodstagramming at the same time as I started Bookstagramming and I’m sure he would love this book too. If only he would read books 🤷🏼‍♀️

I'm a list maker. I use asana for work to keep an overview of my tasks. There I plan things for a month but then I also have an agenda where I write tasks for the upcoming days. Plus I have a note pad where I write more detailed overview of my tasks. And I have my personal agenda where I write my school schedule, work appointments and personal appointments. I wish I could say "that's it" but no. In addition to everything, I have a bullet journal (or sort of a junk journal) where I make lists of tasks for weekends, months and years.

So for this weekend I planned this:

Saturday
• Wake up early and take photos of the frost
• Work out
• Read the book from the reading challenge for an hour
• Read one chapter from the marketing book
• Steam clean the floors (the whole house)
• Study for two hours
• Have a lunch date with T.
• Buy: gloves, oil for hair, mascara
• Watch one movie from the list

Sunday
• Power walk with M.
• Read for an hour
• Study for two hours
• Finish the letter for A.
• Work with the junk journal
• Watch one movie from the list
• Prep lunch for two days

Let's see how it will go.

I cant believe this is real! I drove past this bad boy on the road. No photoshop!⠀

I LOVE the Jurassic Park...BOOKS! Although the original movie is part on cinematic history the following 4 movies lower the quality of the franchise.⠀

If you haven't read the books, go out of your way to do so!⠀

Anything Michael Crichton wrote really. This guy was amazing and his body of work he left behind is on another level. He is the author that turned me into a read...well that and comics!⠀

5/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I don’t even think I will do this book justice with this review. I really only picked this up after the drama with Nora and Tomi a few weeks ago to see how good Nora’s books really were. Everyone had come out of the wood works on twitter saying her books were amazing so I grabbed a copy and dug in.

This was fantastic, everything from the world to the characters. Nora has a way of writing it all together so you visually see and feel everything. The world and the magic were all so amazing I couldn’t put the book down.

You follow different pathways for each set of characters. Lana and Max are a couple trying to escape the doom and raiders while trying to learn their new abilities. Jonah (paramedic) and Rachel (a doctor) are doing there best to help people when Katie gives births to twins and takes on an orphaned baby from the hospital, they all have to find a way to escape safely. Arlys and Fred are escaping New York after Arlys gave her last broadcast telling the truth that over 2 billion people have died from the doom. Everyone is trying to escape New York and get some where that’s safe.

What really through me for a loop was discovering that some of the people immune developed powers. They were elves, fairies, witches, sorcerers, etc. watching them deal with the plague, death and raiders on top of getting these powers was amazing and really different from most apocalyptic novels I’ve read. Nora’s Plague was rooted in Magic. It put a spin on the book I wasn’t expecting and I fell in love with it even more.

Seeing them all go through this journey throughout the book I didn’t have any hope in humanity. Everyone was so cruel and evil, killing, raping, vandalizing, etc. when a new character would come along I waited until they tried to do something horrible. I’ve honestly never had that feeling while reading a book before, congrats Nora 👏🏻 One thing that does happen after a massive disaster or plague is people trying to rebuild. The community and everyone coming together actually gave me hope for all of them.

This book is dark is certain scenes. There is constant mention of murder and some talks over rape, so it may possibly trigger you.
