"Who knows when supreme patience took hold and the wind's wandering among it's leaves was enough of motion, of travel." • My feelings towards Mary Oliver's works were mixed, but I do know this: against my own pervasive restlessness and discontent, she inspired me to slow, root, notice, and appreciate. For that I'm grateful.
so, i read this short book about a week or so ago and i really enjoyed it. one of my reading goals for this year is to read more sci-fi/fantasy written by black authors (i’ve got some butler, jemisin, and hopkinson already on my shelf) and i have to say i’m off to a good start. there was definitely some very interesting world building and lore happening in this story and i really wish it were longer. i recommend this if you’re looking for a short, but interesting and captivating read.

'How do you heal from the grievous wounds from the sexual violation, rape, neglect, betrayal? How can you mend a broken heart? How is a stolen identity, lost innocence and trust restored? How can you live again? Mirabelle is a story that addresses all these questions and offers hope, revealing the source of healing and restoration.’ - Amazon Review amazon.com/Mirabelle-Sandi-Wilson/dp/1788482301/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1543196335&sr=8-1&keywords=9781788482301 barnesandnoble.com/w/mirabelle-sandi-wilson/1129563986?ean=9781788482301 https://www.austinmacauley.com/author/wilson-sandi https://sandisparklewilson.com/2018/10/04/mirabelle/ @austinmacauleypublishers, @kiwi_neil, @stephaniehornell, @juliannahornell #author#bookgrowth#booklove#instaread#authors#instaauthors#authorgram#instabook#bookstagram#bookgram
You don't have to be reading TRAVELS WITH ALICE to answer this discussion question: What are your road trips like? A race to the finish or do you meander and stop to smell the roses? Here's a favorite paragraph from the first essay: "I later found out that the English, who don't have nearly as much ground to cover, tend to view the American approach to highway travel as somewhere between baffling and pathological. A couple of years after I got out of college, some English friends of mine were given a ride from northern Spain to Paris by an American we all knew, and to their astonishment he drove straight through without stopping. They came to the conclusion that he was suffering from a latent death wish. I informed them that our mutual friend had merely driven from northern Spain to Paris the way any red-blooded American boy would drive from northern Spain to Paris: he made good time." 🤣 All ordered copies of TRAVELS WITH ALICE have shipped out! There's still plenty of time to order your copy and read along with with us.
Самиздат и литература, или накипело... ⠀ ⠀В эпоху вседозволенности и открытости Интернета, люди почему-то стали более уверенны в том, что при доложенном внимании и упорстве они могут добиться всего. С одной стороны этот максималистский настрой помогает добиться определенных высот, а с другой делает из обычного человека - человека с уверенностью «непризнанного, но великого». А это уже плохо, и для самого индивида и для общества в целом. ⠀ ⠀ Основной целью создания самиздатов была помощь обывателям с талантом пробиться наверх и найти своего читателя быстрее, чем через классическое издательство. Но максималистский подход к делу и желание разбогатеть привели к тому, что сейчас каждый уверен, что если возьмётся за перо, то у него непременно выйдет гениальное произведение. Написана куча книг и статей о том, что и как писать, но нет ни одной, которая бы сказала «не лезь не в свое дело», потому что это действительно так. ⠀ ⠀ Литература создана, чтобы воспитать в человеке личность и дух, она призвана помогать видеть и чтить внутреннюю красоту каждого человека. Она знакомит нас разными

Have to admit, I didn’t really like ‘Truly, Madly, Guilty’ - which was such a shame because I usually find Moriarty’s novels that excellent balance between fun and ‘keep-you-reading-ness.’ 💫 I’d say skip this underwhelming offering and try ‘The Husband’s Secret’ or ‘Big Little Lies’ instead! 👍
A long work week always calls for solid reading plans. I’m loving the idea of adding more novellas to my books stacks. I enjoyed a handful last year and @night_worms are fulfilling my wishes by having several in their packages. Tonight I’ll be diving into Stirring the Sheets by @chad_lutzke! • Synopsis: An elderly funeral home worker, struggling with the loss of his wife, finds an unnatural attraction for a corpse at work resembling his late bride in her younger years. A story of desperation, loneliness, and letting go. 🖤
"Beauty was your armor. Fragile stuff, all show. But what's inside you? That's steel. It's brave and unbreakable. And it doesn't need fixing." - #ruinandrising by Leigh Bardugo Happy Fri-yaaay!

I was tagged by @feanoreads and Kak @yuniaa.d about #last5reads, so here we go: • Undeniably Asher • Finding Alexei • Ruang Hampa Prada • Verity • Ruin & Rising If you were tagged, you know what to do ❤
💬 What is a series you’ve had on your TBR for years & still haven’t read? Confession: I bought this series purely for the covers and even though I’ve owned them for a couple years now I still haven’t read them 🙊 I have a goal this year to read books/series that I’ve owned for awhile and this series is on that list. Let’s hope I can stick to it because all I hear are good things about these books 💙
Wow, a great read to kick off 2019! The Underdog Parade revolves around Peter, a middle school preteen who is spending his summer avoiding the heat and his bully, Chipper. That is, until Josh shows up with a divine message to build an ark. His sister, CJ aka Wonder Woman, and his wheelchair-bound Uncle Herb follow closely as they all cope this the struggles that each make them underdogs. . . THOUGHTS: This was a really uplifting, inspiring read! This author did an amazing job of capturing the various struggles of each character and how they relied on each other to cope and build their strength. He perfectly captures the innocence yet perception of children, especially with struggles at home, while also capturing their optimism. I loved this book and would recommend it to any teen looking to build their own confidence! . . . . . . . . #books#booksofinstagram#reader#bookstagram#bookish#instabooks#igbooks#igreads#bookaddict#read#booklover#booklove#booknerd#bookphotography#bookworm#bibliophile#coffee#coffeegram#coffeetime#shelfie#instaread
🔎 No Cover serie 🔍 Virginia Woolf es una mujer que admiro demasiado, ya sea como escritora o persona. Leí algunos de sus ensayos, cartas o manifiestos antes de decidirme por una novela suya. Escogí "Los Años" para comenzar, pero, sinceramente, fue difícil. Su complejidad y detallada descripción del entorno y comportamiento de los personajes, hacen que sea una lectura pesada. ¿Qué pasó? No lo terminé 😐 pero es otra de mis metas para el 2019. ¿Qué libro han leído de Virginia? ° ° ° ° #virginiawoolf#books#reading#bookcollector#booktube#bookspics#booksphotography
Książka, którą dostałam w prezencie. Z tylu, na okładce ma napisane "Jeśli dostałeś ją od kogoś w prezencie, pomysł o nim ciepło, bo zapewne zależy mu na Twoim powodzeniu w życiu."👌 Godna polecenia, posiadania, przeczytania. Spoko koleś ten Miłosz. Momentami można się natknąć na oczywistości, ale czasem warto o nich sobie przypomnieć. Takie ponowne przemyślenie, może zainspirować, dać siłę. Szczególnie jeśli przedstawia oczywistość od innej strony, a Brzeziński robi to dobrze. Na dziś przytoczę tylko jedną przypowieść, która została w niej zamieszczona i jest tak bardzo na czasie. "-Wewnątrz człowieka toczy się walka dwóch wilków - mówi stary wojownik. - Jeden wilk to wilk złych cech: lenistwa, próżności, zemsty, obłudy, obojętności. A drugi wilk to wilk cech pozytywnych: pracowitości, pomysłowości, empatii, pomocy innym ludziom, miłości do ludzi i zwierząt. One wciąż toczą ze sobą walkę, kąsając się do krwi. - I który wygrywa? - pyta młody Indianin. - Ten, którego karmisz.” #czytambolubie#miłoszbrzeziński#zyciologia#wyzwanielc2019#ksiazkawprezencie#bookstagram#instaread

🌟🌟🌟🌟 So I finally read the first book in The Court of Thornes and Roses series! Yay for me. ⚘ So opinions I really rather enjoyed it. I will hold my hands up and say that I had very low expectations because there was so much hype around them. I can sense that this story develops so much, I can only imagine what happens next. ⚘ #acourtofthornsandroses#sarahjmaas#biblophile#igread
On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder. This is the most important non-fiction book you’ll read this year. Snyder is a Professor of History at Yale. And in 128 tiny pages he reminds us what happens when we forget the lessons of those that have gone before us. It is the perfect book to accompany the political climate of our time. If nothing else, search ‘Timothy Snyder and Bill Maher’ and watch him speak. One of the most eye-opening interviews I have ever seen. Bill tries to be funny but Tim’s not fuckin’ around. He brings particular attention to The Reichstag Fire (if you don’t know what that is - be sure to look it up). As soon as the segment ended; I ordered his book on Amazon. RATING 5/5 stars. RECOMMEND FOR: any voting adult, history buffs, and anyone who loves talking politics. IF YOU LIKED THIS YOU’LL LIKE: Animal Farm by George Orwell (fiction).
What is your favourite children's book? These along with The Little Prince are some of my favourites.I also loved The Graveyard Book to bits.Coraline is another favorite. . I feel like children's books are really hard to review because there is so little to talk about yet so much to say. . Among the three of the books here I'd say Wonder is the best one as the topic it deals with- facial deformity and all the effects of it on a young boy and his family - is unprecedented in a children's book. I know the book kind of sugar coats it with a cheesy happy ending but it still manages to open your eyes about judging people by their appearance. And in this age where most people put sole importance on looks alone, this book really shows why we should think twice before doing that. . . . . . . . . . #bookstagrambd#classicbooks#bangladeshiphotographer#bibliophile#goodreads#booksofinstagram#bookgeek#instaread#bookstagrammer#igbooks#ilovebooks#bookstagram#instareads#bookworm#epicreads#bookish#bookcommunity#bookishfeatures#booknerd#igreads#bookdragon#booklove#bookaddict#reading#bookfeaturepage#ilovereading#bookblog#bookaholic#bookphotography#instaread#instabooks
