All’s quiet in Thimble today....... .
Mrs Mend, the seamstress has had a mare of a day trying to make curtains for her newly decorated lounge. She’s made them, hung them, unpicked them, thrown them to one side and screamed!

#Bookstagram #Book #9 of the year. #JustFinished #Rapture by @nnbrittauthor 📖
Well, this was an emotional rollercoaster. I dare you to start reading this and have plans and things to do and real life to live. This is a definite “don’t talk to me, I’m reading” book.
📖
This debut novel, which is billed as a sort of heavy metal 🤘🏾 dark romance isn’t out till March 14th but I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. That said, I always say if I’m not fond of a book and why, even when I’m tagging the author. As a heavy duty book purchaser myself, I’d never leave a BS review because I got it for free. 📖
I’m not particularly into “darkness” or heavy metal, and so if that’s not your thing either, don’t worry, this angsty, HIGHLY EMOTIONAL debut tackles grief, alcoholism, addiction, family, fame/notoriety in such a sensitive and insightful way that you can’t but be drawn in, and even through the dysfunction, root for #Jazel 📖
The premise is like your standard Notting Hill-esque trope of a celebrity falling in love with a schmegular Joe/Jill and “Schmegular J” finding out that indeed “celebs are just like us” kinda sorta. But this novel is sooo much more than that- it never feels contrived and the trope makes sense here. Hazel, a former housewife whose life and marriage has broken down after losing her young son, reluctantly agrees to help Justice, a global rockstar (metal band variety), who’s kind of lost his way musically and otherwise after his childhood friend and band are OD’d in front of him. This book is angst dot com dot net dot org executed in the best, heartbreakingly raw and broken way.
📖
#ReadThisIf you’re interested in the world of rockstars or care about struggling people finding love in the midst of grief. Not recommended if you’re easily offended by strong language or sensitive to what Lady Gaga called so aptly, a Bad Romance. This isn’t even my preferred type of romance, yet it’s one of my favourite reads in a LONG TIME!

#justfinished Cabal! I was floundering about how much I liked it throughout the book. My final verdict is I really liked it a lot. I knew nothing about it going in, and as a result, I almost felt a little lost at the beginning. It's a strange story and goes by quickly (this hardcover copy is only 204 pages). I was afraid the book would focus a great deal on the inhabitants of Midian, but it didn't, and I think that's for the better. All in all, a great, gory horror book (the movie Nightbreed is based on this book apparently!) #clivebarker #cabal #horror #horrorbooks #books

This book has gone and stolen my heart. I found the movie captivating enough to pick it up, and oh how I fell in love with the characters. And all through letters, mind! ⠀
What are you reading this weekend?

“Because we never got out. We never got out of the green. Our generation died there.” •
The five stories in this book follow a generation of kids from the 60’s and explores the impact of the Vietnam war. The way that King wove these storylines and times together was beautifully heartbreaking and left me in tears on multiple occasions.
Not to mention the many Dark Tower references that had me fangirling all over the place 🤓 While it still would have been amazing regardless, having read them first made it so much better. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tackling my TBR like a pro 😎

Started reading “Brit(ish)” by Afua Hirsch in November last year. And I don’t know why I stopped. Probably because this is a very intense book. And it’s not very uplifting. But it’s fierce and oh so important. A nation (a world?) that claims to “not see color”, and therefore whitewashing reality.
.
.
.
Highly recommend this, if you’re interested in identity and race. This definitely didn’t get the attention it deserved last year.

Just Finished: Where the Crawdads Sing
🐚
This book was moving, heartbreaking, and inspiring. I decided to “read” this book by listening to it on audio. It was the best choice for me because it’s not the type of book I typically read. Toward the end of the book I found myself actually swelling with pride for a fictional character.
🌾
I’m looking forward to the #readwithkat discussion with @readwithkat !

📚 Book blurb 📚
Shevek, a gifted physicist from the planet Anarres, travels to its sister planet Urras to meet other scientists in the hope of finishing his theory on the Principles of Simultaneity. The two planets have a long and twisted history, and travelling to Urras might mean he would never be able to return.
Well, where to begin with this one... What a writer! What a book! Absolutely everything is spot-on: the beautiful writing, the whole and oh-so-human characters, and above all I was blown away by the depth of the two worlds she created. Anarres, arid and just-about-liveable, is relatively recently colonised by a group of idealists from Urras, who set up a nonauthoritarian socialist society. Urras is much like the western world I know: green, glorious, ruled by a hierarchical, patriarchical, capitalist few, largely to the detriment of the many.
Le Guin’s power lies in her ability to show both societies wholly, from their most shining examples of greatness right down to their darkest mistakes. Yet I still know which world I would take in a heartbeat.
I read somewhere that this book is the anti-Ayn Rand, but I think it is more the flipside to Rand’s coin. Shevek is, after all, looking for the best way in which he, personally, would grow to his fullest potential. He just always sets this personal search within the context of his society, so that as a whole it can grow, too. Marvellous stuff.
THE DISPOSSESSED by Ursula K. le Guin. Highly recommended.

The Little Teashop of Lost and Found by Trisha Ashley:

Fun, light-hearted and nice. A lovely book about discovering the past, setting down roots and life coming full circle. As with all her books this one is beautifully written and full of a feeling of contentment and nostalgia. The characters are real and believable with connections, that as a reader are almost expected, but would be highly unanticipated for them. It left a cosy comfortable feeling and was an enjoyable, easy read ⭐⭐⭐⭐ .

"I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." Maya Angelou

#book2of2019#currentlyreading. Decided to read Maya Angelou's books this year. Oprah's interview with her on Super Soul Sunday made me want to read all of her books. This is my first pick.

Please leave some recommendations which of her books I should pick up soon.

Steinbeck is an author I wanted to read for a long time and with this vintage modern classics edition I got to tick off two of his titles.
Of Mice and Men surprised me a great deal. It's quite short, but so packed with emotions and events. Things spiral fast into a surreal climax that I really didn't expect, but completely understood. It is a really amazing feat of writing.
Cannery Row is threading on the line between novel and short stories, with the point of building an atmosphere of a place and its people. I didn't get into it that much, I think I wanted a more united narrative.
Looking forward to reading other Steinbeck novels. And giggling at my cute book mouse Pip, who says hi!

JUST FINISHED: Misery by Stephen King. 4 out of 5 stars. I finished this King classic a few days ago and throughly enjoyed it! It was intense! I am starting to realize that King novels take me a little longer to get through. I can't blaze through them like other thrillers and I am starting to appreciate that. He is definitely not short on words and really allows us to get into his characters heads. This makes for a slower read but also makes me really invested in the characters. Sometimes so invested that I become scared to read on because let's face it, this is King, and bad things often happen to the characters you love. And this book was no exception... Paul felt real to me and I was terrified of what was going to happen to him.

Just finished listening to Sleeping Murder for @maidensofmurder book club. I really wanted to participate, but I already have so many books to read right now, so I decided to listen to this in the car. I liked this one. Glad I was able to join in! 😄 #agathachristie #maidensofmurder #sleepingmurder #justfinished #audiobooks #bookstagram

Finallerle boğuşmaktan anca bitirebildim. Ne desem tam olarak bilemiyorum aslında. Çok fazla eksik var bana göre. Eksik derken yapbozun kayıp parçaları gibi hikaye boşlukları yani. Yoksa yayına hazırlığından dolayı değil. Yanlış anlaşılma olmasın. Mesela en son bölüm. Neden? Hadi tamam insanlığın savaşı kış yüzündendi de size noldu? Loki nasıl kurtuldu? Balder nasıl geri geldi? Bu kalan Tanrıların özellikleri ne? Neden ölmemişler? Kabul ediyorum çok şey öğrendim bu konuda ama bir o kadar da soru birikti. Gerçi böyle düşününce aslında bir kitabın yapması gerektiğini yaptı sanırım #iskandinavmitolojisi öğrenme isteğimi tetikledi. Muhtemelen gidip bir sürü yerden araştırma yapıp yukarıda bahsettiğim sorulara ve kafamda dönen daha nicelerine cevap bulmaya çalışacağım. 🤓

#qotd How is your reading year going so far?
#aotd I just finished my fourth book! I am right on track to finish my reading goal, according to goodreads.
This series was so good. I am kinda sad that it is over. I loved the characters. There was so much sass in this book, and I loved pairing the audiobook with the physical book. There was so much artwork that is missed with just the audio, but the audio does add so much to the experience. I definitely recommend pairing them!
