  • I’m dying to decorate my house for fall! Looking at my photos from last year will have to suffice. Please leave some white pumpkins in the stores for me!😬
🍁🍂🌾🍃
I’m still trying to get into In the Woods by Tana French. To be fair, I haven’t been in a mood to read AT ALL since my surgery. I’m starting to get more energy, but my attention span is flighty. I can’t stick to one thing for long.
Have you read it yet? Tell me to stick with it and that it’ll be worth it!☺️

  • (Unbezahlte Werbung) #Rezension zu #LempiDasHeißtLiebe von #MinnaRytisalo am 23.07.‘18 bei @hanserliteratur erschienen. ⠀ ⠀
——
“Die Erinnerung an diese Zeit reibt mich auf und reißt mich in Stücke. Jetzt zittern mir die Hände. In meiner Faust steckt grünes Moos, aber in meiner Seele nur Leere, die nie verschwinden wird und schmerzt und hallt.“ ⠀ ⠀
——
INHALT: Im finnischen Lappland kehrt Viljami aus dem Krieg zurück.
Er erinnert sich an damals, wie er sich in seine Frau Lempi verliebte. Trotz Abitur und ohne große Ahnung vom Landleben zu haben, zog sie nach der Heirat zu ihm auf den Hof. Sie verbrachten wunderschöne Tage zusammen. Doch das junge Glück hielt nicht all zu lange an, als Viljami 1943 zum Kriegsdienst einberufen wurde.
Laut ihrer Magd Elli, die selbst ein Auge auf den Bauernsohn geworfen hat, soll seine Frau während seiner Abwesenheit und nach der Geburt ihres Kindes, mit einem Offizier nach Deutschland gegangen sein. Doch Viljami will das nicht glauben... ⠀ ⠀
——
MEINUNG: Dies ist ein Buch, das während und nach dem Lesen sehr zwiegespaltene Gefühle in mir auslöste.
Es ist in drei Abschnitte gegliedert. Der Reihe nach erzählen Viljami, die Magd Elli und schließlich Lempis Zwillingsschwester Sisko aus ihrer Perspektive einiges über Lempi und lassen den Leser dabei an ihrer Gefühls- und Gedankenwelt teilhaben.
Die sprachliche Gestaltung empfand ich dabei als besonders markant: Leicht poetisch und zu Beginn wird häufig das Konjunktiv verwendet. Das war erst mal etwas ungewohnt. Und da Viljami zudem am Anfang sehr schwärmerisch auf seine Lempi zurückblickt, könnte es auf den ein oder anderen Leser durchaus etwas zu kitschig wirken.
Da mir vor allem zu Beginn die Sprache sehr gut gefiel, konnte ich an dieser Stelle darüber hinwegsehen. Durch äußerst atmosphärische Schilderungen, hatte ich zunächst einen leichten "Wow-Effekt" beim Lesen und ich konnte Viljamis Schmerz regelrecht spüren.
Doch mit fortschreitender Handlung, fiel es mir immer schwerer, Viljamis Jammern, sein Selbstmitleid, sowie anschließend den Hass der Magd Elli auszuhalten. Irgendwann war ich nur noch genervt von den beiden Charakteren.

  • 🎨LA COULEUR DES SENTIMENTS🎨

Une couronne de fleurs, des sourcils fournis, des jupes bohèmes et des bracelets qui s’entrechoquent...
L’iconographie de Frida Kahlo est connue du monde entier et est souvent synonyme de culture mexicaine.
Mais elle, qui était-elle vraiment ? Quelle femme, quelle amoureuse ?

Dans ce magnifique roman lumineux et incandescent, Claire Berest se glisse dans la peau de Frida pour nous faire vivre son histoire d’amour passionnée avec Diego Rivera, el gran pintor de Mexico.
Grâce à une écriture transcendée et enflammée, elle nous dévoile la rage de peindre et d’aimer de cette artiste qui souffrira toute sa vie dans son corps et dans son cœur.

Laissée pour presque morte à 18 ans à la suite d’un grave accident de tramway, abandonnée dans son lit de longs mois durant, elle découvrira la peinture pour extérioriser ses démons.

Sa rencontre avec Diego bouleversera sa vie et sa façon de voir le monde.
Lui l’éléphant et elle la toute petite chose cassée.
Habitée par une fougue amoureuse et sensuelle, elle passera sur toutes les trahisons de son mari, des plus douloureuses à celles qui la feront souffrir au-delà de la raison.
Diego sera sa déraison.

A travers de courts chapitres, portant tous une couleur différente et chaque fois évocatrice, Claire Berest nous peint de manière exaltante la femme, l’artiste, la sœur, l’amante,l’amie.
A la lecture d’une biographie je suis parfois peu convaincue par les pensées imaginées par les auteurs. Véracité ou lubie?
Mais ici Claire est Frida et ses pensées et ses paroles ne peuvent être autres. 
Elle a réussi à faire complètement corps avec le personnage et à nous livrer sa vision de cette histoire, de façon résolument incarnée et possédée.

Un énorme coup de cœur pour cette plume envoûtante et cette héroïne passionnée.
Le noir n’est définitivement pas une couleur ! 🎨————————————————

  • 🕯 La couverture me ramène instantanément à Dickens et son Oliver Twist. Dès les premières lignes, je suis dans les rues boueuses et sales du cœur de l’Angleterre...
1860, le monde bouge et Londres subit une crise économique, industrielle et sociale. La pauvreté jonche les rues de la ville, indifféremment contournée par les plus riches. L’opulence côtoie la misère. Un enfant va grandir dans cette ville au bord de l’insurrection. Sans nom, sans origines. L’enfant de personne.
Il s’appelle Freddy. Sa mère ne veut pas de lui. Son père se fait appeler le Maure.
Freddy est le fils caché de Karl Marx, figure du communisme et de la révolution prolétarienne. Charlotte, jeune irlandaise qui a fui son pays en proie à la famine, recueille et élève cet enfant dont personne ne veut. Elle sera bien plus que sa nourrice. Elle sera sa mère, sa "bonne-maman", celle qui fera tout pour lui. Absolument tout.
Les années passent, durant lesquelles Karl Marx écrit la Révolution alors que Freddy lui, en viendra à la faire, prenant les armes pour défendre les opprimés, les broyés de ce monde...
De Londres à Manchester, en passant par l’Irlande, avec en toile de fond la crise du coton, la guerre de Sécession et l’indépendantisme irlandais, Sébastien Spitzer nous conte le destin de cet enfant illégitime, né dans la honte et le mensonge.
"Le cœur battant du monde" est un roman d’une force romanesque incroyable, aux personnages profonds. La bonté et la dévotion de Charlotte, l’ambiguïté et les contradictions d’Engels, l’égoïsme et les paradoxes insoupçonnables de Karl Marx, la force de caractère de Freddy...
En mêlant réalité et fiction comme lui seul sait le faire, Sébastien Spitzer récidive et signe un roman palpitant et passionnant.
Un très grand roman.
À lire absolument!
❤️

Parce que ce roman a l’étoffe d’un Goncourt...

  • The Unforgiving City by Maggie Joel
.

Thank you to @allenandunwin for an uncorrected proof of this book. .

This book is set in colonial Sydney right at the end of the 19th century and in the lead  up to the vote for Federation. It focuses on government minister Alasdair Dunlevy, his wife Eleanor and their maid Alice. .

All have secrets that they are hiding and are unsure of how to resolve their various predicaments....and when they each make their individual choices, nothing quite turns out as they were expecting. .

I very much enjoyed the story and the characters. Alasdair was not a likable character and Eleanor was very aloof and distant, however I liked what each character brought to the storyline. .

I found it really interesting to read about Sydney of old (particularly the part about Frog Hollow, which still exists but as a park these days) and the journeys to the outlying towns (Bathurst, Albury and a few others). .

I felt the wretchedness of Alice and the very few options that life presented to her over her storyline and was struck by how desperate the many poor people of the time would have lived. .

It was a great read and although I wish the ending could have been a little less rushed, I’ve given this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as I very much enjoyed every moment I spent with this book.

  • Reader will find anything,anywhere and start to read....!!!!! Sunday's spot was @libertybooks  at @luckyonepk . A good place with lots of books. My personal choice is fiction but I can read anything which I find interesting. 
The book I chose to read is of "Sir Manto". Manto is always close to my heart. Maybe many of you find him bold and blunt but reality is this that he always highlight those bitter  realities of society which we all secretly agreed but afraid of confessing. I suggest everyone who read this that atleast once in life...read MANTO and your way of thinking about society will change..🌸🌸🔥🔥 . .

  • Posted @withrepost • @my_book_journey_ Happy Sunday, book friends! I am absolutely loving this fall weather! Cool, crisp mornings to take Lily for a walk, wide open windows with a warm breeze coming in during the afternoon, and evenings spent around the fire. What could be better?! I truly love Fall.
🍂
I am really looking forward to this week of reading! After seeing the Downton Abbey movie I was feeling like I needed a good historical fiction read, so I picked up The Last Train to London. I’ve been hearing good things about The Others Gold so I added that to the pile. Finally, I had to add my Book of the Month pic, The Reckless Oath We Made. I’m trying to read my BOTM pics the month I get them (I know, I’m funny) and I can’t wait to see what Bryan Greenwood has done to a follow up of her debut novel.
🍂
I can’t wait to hear and see what you are all reading this week! Today is going to be a gorgeous day - hope you enjoy it! ❤️📚 Thank you to the tagged publishers for gifting books. 😘

  • Today's topic: Growing Out of YA
.
As I graduated from college, I didn't enjoy YA books as much and I gravitate more towards something like classic novels. That feels kinda strange since there are still a tonnnn of YA books I do want to read and get to. I started being afraid to pick them up and be disappointed.
.
Have you ever been like this too? How do you deal with it?
.
(Also I am so excited to read Head On! It is a sequel to my favorite book I've read last year! If you have read these please please let me know! )

  • I don’t have to 
alter myself in 
order to make 
you happy. You 
embrace who I 
truly am and 
even bring me 
back to myself 
if I lose my path. 
I love you for that 
and everything 
that I can’t explain.

  • 🎀Book of the Week🎀

This is a tough one. I was very split on this book. I loved the OCD MC, the romance subplot and the general writing because... John Green. But I didn't care much for the main plot which is weird, because if there was no main plot, I'd say it's boring. At least it was never that.

But it's important to show love to writers who are as genuine as John, so this is my book of the week. (It would have been the fault in our stars but I've watched too many video essays on it to continue loving it). P.S. this reviewer summed up exactly how I feel when I read John Green: "I keep getting my heart broken by books, not boys. And yet, like love, I won't stop because it feels so good and the moment is so beautiful." Also, we should be friends 🤔😋🤗 □♡◇♤■□◇♧♡■□□♡◇◇■□

  • If you think someone’s not telling you the truth, there’s a very good chance you are wrong… Malcolm Gladwell covers this extremely interesting phenomenon in his latest book “Talking to Strangers — What we should know about the people we don’t know.” I just finished this one tonight… And it’s pretty eye-opening. Did you know that judges are only 54% correct when they think a defendant is lying? If seasoned judges get it wrong so often, how does this phenomenon affect the rest of us in our daily interactions?

After recommendation from a friend, I ordered Jack Daniels “Daniels’ running formula.” Just started this one tonight because I want to increase my distance through better technique... both books are not what I typically read but so far, very good.
