  • “That's why people get into fandom and bands and stuff. They just want something to hold on to something that makes them feel good. Even if it's all a big lie.”

Happy Friday! It’s my last weekend before starting my last uni year (my 7th 😱) and my new job, so I’m a bit stressed out. (I’ll explain to you all why I’m still going to uni this weekend over my stories, I promise!)
.
My plans are to work (I’m still not ready lol), to organise myself and to breathe a little. I’ll probably watch some more Gilmore Girls (the perfect tv show to watch after a hard day, right?) and read! I want to read one book this weekend.
.
What are your plans? ✨

  • Πολλοί άνθρωποι, και μερικές φορές ιδιαίτερα έξυπνοι, πιστεύουν πως τα χρήματα είναι το παν. Έχουν δίκιο.

Κισόν Εφραίμ ✒️O Εφραίμ Κισόν ήταν Ισραηλινός σατιρικός συγγραφέας και δραματουργός. Γεννήθηκε στην Βουδαπέστη μια μέρα σαν σήμερα  ως Φέρεντς Χόφμαν, όπου σπούδασε γλυπτική και ζωγραφική. Στη διάρκεια του B' Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου συνελήφθη από τους ναζί γλιτώνοντας ως εκ θαύματος την φυλάκιση σε στρατόπεδο συγκέντρωσης.

  • Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights (1847). Penguin, 1994.
:
:
“My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it...as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath..., I am Heathcliff!” Feverish, passionate, and destructible! Perhaps the greatest love story ever produced. This woman wrote just one novel in her whole life and it became a milestone! Pure hellish! I remember I had a high fever the day I finished this novel. This is a story of two generations with the orphaned and mad Heathcliff at the center. Destroyed and resurrected in the love of Catherine, Heathcliff comes back to take revenge and claim the ownership of both Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange. From a conflict of love it quickly escalates into a conflict of class. But there is also a gap in the novel: we are never told how Heathcliff becomes a rich gentleman after he runs away from the Grange. Nevertheless, the death of Catherine followed by Heathcliff’s digging up her grave to sleep in her coffin throughout the night with her in his arms is quite doleful. As the spirit and visions of Catherine start haunting Heathcliff, he violently meets his end on a rainy midnight in Catherine’s old bedroom. He is buried next to her as an existence of her beyond herself!

  • I rarely buy things for myself. But when I do, it’s books. Lots and lots of books. Here’s my weekly #thrift book haul that cost me less than a vanilla latte. We all have our vices! 🤪 What’s the last book you purchased?

  • Nell’immensa solitudine 
dell’essere io soltanto io,
sentendo il cuore,
come soltanto mio,

il vento mi accompagna,
col suo brusio nella notte,
ed eccomi solo sulla montagna,
sotto la divina frusta.

Non c’è tuttavia nulla
intorno a me se non
solitudine muta
e questo cuore.

3.7.1930

Fernando Pessoa.

  • Victor Hugo explains his ambitions for the novel to his Italian publisher: I don't know whether it will be read by everyone, but it is meant for everyone. It addresses England as well as Spain, Italy as well as France, Germany as well as Ireland, the republics that harbour slaves as well as empires that have serfs. Social problems go beyond frontiers. Humankind's wounds, those huge sores that litter the world, do not stop at the blue and red lines drawn on maps. Wherever men go in ignorance or despair, wherever women sell themselves for bread, wherever children lack a book to learn from or a warm hearth, Les Miserables knocks at the door and says: Open up, I am here for you.

Toward the end of the novel, Hugo explains the work's overarching structure:  The book which the reader has before him at this moment is, from one end to the other, in its entirety and details ... a progress from evil to good, from injustice to justice, from falsehood to truth, from night to day, from appetite to conscience, from corruption to life; from bestiality to duty, from hell to heaven, from nothingness to God. The starting point: matter, destination: the soul. The hydra at the beginning, the angel at the end. #victorhugo #lesmiserables #literature #litlove

  • BANK HOLIDAY FREE READ

This weekend for the Bank Holiday there is no excuse not to download your FREE copy of INTO THE DARK, the first feature-length novel in The Magdon Series.

Written by a unique mind the series was born to rekindle that sense of adventure born from a childhood in the 80s. That rare twist of Indiana Jones, Romancing The Stone, The Goonies and those classic adventures that throw normal everyday people into impossible worlds of secrets, danger and intrigue.

Having grown up with these sorts of foundations the story was originally set as a five-part novelette series trying to encourage a sense of adventure in a new generation. It grew into this story which continues to evolve with a sequel already released (From The Dark). Into The Dark drags one unwilling family into a dark world of forgotten monsters, secret societies and villains that will stop at nothing and sacrifice anything to achieve their goal. The only question is will it be fight or flight... Bringing adventure to different places was key (we've all journeyed to infamous cities so it was time to bring adventure home). Into The Dark sees mystery come to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park Mount Snowdon Summit and less well-known locations, why? Because adventures don't just happen to those who search for it in places that everyone knows.

Get your copy FREE as an EBOOK 24-26 August Bank Holiday Weekend.
