Is there anything more summery than baguettes and fruit? 🥖🍑(I know it’s a butt, but right now it’s a nectarine lol)
•What’s your fave picnic food?
•I’m in this weird place right now where I have no idea what my life is going to look like in a year? Like I graduated a month ago and half of my friends know exactly what they’re going to do while the other half is just as clueless as I am. 🤔
I’ve always been a planner but there’s something thrilling about the fact that for once in my life I have absolutely no clue how my life will be in a year. 😶It’s still terrifying though🤫
Any advice? What did you feel when you graduated? (If you have graduated) 🎓
•So sorry for my inactivity guys🙈I’ll post more frequently soon. Promise.
Anyway, I finally got a photo featuring this lil baby🐱
•Do you have any pets?
•Oh and how’s your week been? Done anything fun? I’d love to catch up with you guys💕
“ Se os tigres tem alma, e acredito que tenham, imagino que a dele seja triste e solitária. Olhei dentro daqueles grandes olhos azuis e sussurrei: – Queria que você fosse livre.” Com essa e muitas outras frases lindas eu fui ao poucos, em cada livro amando mais e mais esses personagens e essa história. Passei muitos momentos felizes, momentos com o coração apertado, momentos de angústia e também aquela raivinha (não posso negar) mas graças a tudo isso que eu senti, graças a esse misto de sentimentos e emoções hoje eu sou leitora.
Foi tão bom e inusitado sentir tantas coisas a partir de uma história que eu só li por que a capa me chamou a atenção, afinal eu ainda não tinha o hábito de ler livros. Tão mais tão bom que eu busquei mais, que eu quis muito mais, tanto que não parei até hoje.
Já senti inúmeros sentimentos e emoções, já conheci incontáveis personagens, já viajei, já fiz coisas que jamais sonhei imaginar graças, A Maldição do Tigre. O primeiro livro, a primeira série, o primeiro contato. Sou tão grata a essa história que nem consigo expressar.
Ao receber a notícia que @colleen.houck estaria lançando mais um livro através da @editoraarqueiro foi tão incrível que mal posso esperar para conhecer mais uma história dessa autora que fez tanta diferença na minha vida!
E você, qual livro ou história te trouxe para esse mundo literário?

THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS
- KHALID HOSSEINI . 💡"Learn this now and learn it well. Like a compass facing north, a man’s accusing finger always finds a woman. Always. You remember that, Mariam."💡
If I were to describe the book in one word, I'd say TREASURE. The book recounts the tale of two women, Maria and Laila. Mariam is an illegitimate child of a wealthy man who lives in the town with his 3 wives, while she lives in a kolba with her mother. She pedestalises her father, who visits her weekly, despite her mother's cold attitude towards him. It is Mariam's blind faith in her father which changes the course of her life forever. Her fate leads her to a forced marriage with a man who is three times her age, thus, an unhappy life.
Laila, on the other hand, is the daughter of a teacher. The love of her life is Tariq. But if only love was so easy. Laila's life is turned upside down in the ravages caused by the incessant wars in Afghanistan.
Fate throws both the women in each other's path and in each other, they discover family and strength beyond measure. Despite the strong patriarchal society of Afghanistan and mindless laws, both find a purpose in their lives, an eternal joy, and a bond that can never be broken.
Hosseini has created his magic in the best possible way. This is by far his best work. The book is a mix of emotions. It will break you, tear you apart, crush your soul, leave you with horrifying images, but never let you go off the hook. The traces of hope between the lines will always keep calling you back to it's pages. If you are a true bookoholic, then this book should definitely have a place in your bookshelf. . 💡"One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs,
Or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls." 💡

"What award ?" Billy commented. "You mean the one that our team will win? Well I'm going to put the trophy on my nightstand by my Sports Illustrated for kids magazine along with my Diary of a Wimpy Kids book," Billy said boldly.
Waking up would be easier if there was coffee, the Caribbean ocean and 85 degree weather outside. 😆☕️🌊
I wish I were still on my cruise. 😆 Where do you wish you were?
Do you ever mix up books in your mind? For some reason these 2 very different books are interchangeable in my mind. Sadly they are both on my unread shelf!
One day I’ll tackle all those unread adventures waiting for me while I buy new adventures!
On Wednesday’s I’m going to try joining in on #booksnotbullies tag. Thank you to everyone who helps to keep bookstagram a safe space to share. 💙
What you need to do is go faster through the text than your brain is capable of hearing every single word. The speed can vary between readers – but the lowest reading speed I recommend you attain is 400 words per minute. This is high enough that it is simply impossible for you to read aloud at that speed – even silently – word for word. ...more on this in my book - available on Kindle:

Have you read KINTU yet? If not kindly grab your copy from us. You can also DM or click on the link in our bio to place your order from @ solushop. Limited stock.
History in the form of an unrelenting curse pervades the present in this epic novel that questions if we can ever fully recover from the wounds of the past.
Kintu opens with unbridled authority and mercilessness. In just a few pages a man has been hunted down by an angry mob in Uganda. He is then brained with a concrete slab; his woman is left in widowhood and has the hard task of dealing with her man's debt. Blood flows easily, and quickly, when your family's steps are haunted by a curse that spans generations.
One of Italy’s most popular authors and creator of the Inspector Montalbano series, Andrea Camilleri has died at the age of 93.
Camilleri, who was born in Sicily in 1925, was taken to hospital in Rome in June after going into cardiac arrest.
The author had written a handful of historical novels when, in 1994 at the age of almost 70, he wrote The Shape of Water, the first book starring his now famous Sicilian detective. Set in the fictional town of Vigata, Camilleri was originally going to call his central detective The Commissioner, but decided to pay tribute to the Spanish writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, the Spanish author of novels about the investigator Pepe Carvalho.
