HUGE BOOKISH UNBOXING! video

very mini book haul! I picked up girls of paper and fire by Natasha Ngan and the hate you give by Angie Thomas. So excited to read these, I’ve heard nothing but good things, and I wanted to read the hate you give especially before the movie comes out! ✨📚 •

It’s Super Blood Wolf Moon Lunar Eclipse night and I’m celebrating with Hunter’s Truce by @ellebeaumontbooks —a werewolf retelling of the Three Little Pigs’ Big Bad Wolf. Will you be watching the eclipse tonight? I can’t because of the storm, but I’ll live vicariously through you if you are!

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”- The Night Circus, @erinmorgenstern
❤️
The Night Circus hold s Avery special place in my heart because it inspired me to complete my first NaNoWriMo challenge several years ago. I love the writing, most of all the imagery!

All my friends who still live in Okinawa are posting sakura pictures and I kind of hate them right now (totes kidding, I love you all). I loved sakura season, and this is the first time in three years I don’t get to celebrate it and be one of those touristy flower-gazers! Whine whine, gripe gripe. I don’t have a book with sakura on the cover - sakura are cherry blossoms, by the way- but I do have Shadow of the Fox, which takes place in a fictionalized fantasy version of Japan. To be honest, I felt kind of homesick when I was reading it. Especially the parts where Yumeko talks about food, because let me tell you, you all might think it’s stupid to pay $20 for a bowl of ramen, but you’ve never been to Tokyo and I have and I’ve had the ramen there, and it is worth every penny of $20. Wow, that last sentence was kind of an assault on commas. Anyway, I’ll just be over here, dreaming about sakura and ramen. Oh, and if you haven’t read Shadow of the Fox, it’s very entertaining and you really should. 🌸🌸🌸 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #books #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bookaholic #bookobsessed #bookphotography #yalovin #yafantasy #yaauthor #yabookstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #author #authorsofinstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #shadowofthefox #sakura #sakuraseason

청소년의 뇌는 역설 그 자체나 다름없다. 이 뇌는 회백질은 흘러넘치지만, 백질은 부족하다. 10대의 뇌가 금방 출고된 페라리 자동차와 비슷한 이유도 이것이다. 당장 어디라도 달려갈 듯하지만 주행 검사를 아직 거치지 않은 것이다. 바꿔 말하자면 붕붕 굉음 소리를 울리며 공회전을 하고 있지만, 정작 어디로 가야 할지는 알지 못하는 상태나 마찬가지다. 이 역설은 결국 혼란스러운 문화적 메시지로 이어진다. 우리는 누군가가 겉모습이 성인 같으면 정신적으로도 성인일 것이라고 가정한다. 청소년기 남자아이들은 면도를 하고, 10대 여자아이들은 임신을 할 수 있다. 하지만 신경학적으로 보면 양쪽의 뇌 모두 전성기, 즉 성인의 세계를 접할 준비가 안 되어 있다. p.48
_
감정적, 정신적 사안에 대해 10대가 대단히 취약하다는 사실은 아무리 강조해도 지나치지 않다. 10대는 스트레스에 대해 과민하고, 자기 분석이나 통찰 등의 능력이 부족한 시기다. 또래 집단에 소속되어 있다고 해도 그들도 같은 10대들이기 때문에 경고 신호를 해석할 수도, 적절한 공감을 해줄 수도 없다. 그래서 10대 주변 성인들의 역할이 중요하다. 방심하지 말고 지켜보아야 한다. 성인이 능력껏 질문을 던지고, 캐묻고, 접촉을 유지해야 한다. 무엇보다도 평소와 조금이라도 달라진 듯한 증상이 보이면 주저 말고 의학적 자문을 구하는 것이 중요하다. p.219
**
사고를 저질러놓고 수습할 생각조차 못하는 것도, 매일 아침마다 잠과의 전쟁을 벌이는 것도, 스마트폰에 푹 빠져 해야 할 일을 제쳐두는 것도 모두 아이의 의지 문제가 아니라 '뇌' 때문이라면 어떨까. 이 책은 두 아들을 둔 싱글맘이자 세계적으로 존경받는 신경과학자가 알려주는 10대의 뇌에 관한 모든 것을 다루고 있다. '부모에게는 자녀 교육의 지침서로, 청소년에게는 나를 찾아가는 과정에 대한 가이드북'으로 더할 나위 없이 훌륭한 책이다!

El 2019 va con buen ritmo. El reto de este año son 100 libros (aunque estoy pensando en bajar a 50) y ya van 5 💪
.

Acabo de terminar de leer "Menfreya al Amanecer". Como siempre, Victoria Holt no defrauda. No he leído un solo libro de ella que no me haya fascinado. Soy adicta al trabajo de esa autora. .
.
Ahora voy con "El Príncipe Lestat" de #AnneRice. Será difícil acostumbrarme a su ritmo a veces lento, después de Victoria Holt, pero siempre es bueno volver a las páginas de mi autora de terror favorita.

Si estás leyendo esto es porque, tal vez, compartes conmigo un amor inmenso por los #libros. Un texto puede tener un valor especial para una persona y puede que, para otra, no; ese es el increíble poder de las historias. Estas nos permiten compartir sentimientos y percepciones, así como disentir desde lo subjetivo, debatir con libertad y poner en práctica el respeto por las opiniones de los demás. ¿Qué decir de los libros que nos acompañan como amigos en momentos difíciles, que brindan consuelo y nos unen en torno a las emociones y los argumentos; que tejen entre lectores una red ilimitada de sentido? Esos libros nos cambian y, por ende, también a la vida. Eso ocurre en #LaSociedadLiterariadelPasteldePieldePatatadeGuernsey (2008), de #MaryAnnShaffer y #AnnieBarrows, quienes cuentan cómo los libros ayudan a un grupo de personas a enfrentar con ahínco la invasión alemana a Inglaterra durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En la novela (que es epistolar), la escritora Juliet Ashton comienza a escribirse cartas con algunos habitantes de la isla de Guernsey, específicamente con los miembros de la sociedad literaria que da nombre al libro. Lo que comienza como mensajes entre varios apasionados por las letras, se convierte con el tiempo en amistades fuertes hacen entender a Juliet, Dawsey, Amelia, Eben, Eli, Isola y los otros personajes que, de no haber sido por los libros y los lazos construidos en las reuniones de la sociedad literaria, el miedo y el horror de la guerra los habrían consumido. Las autoras narran, con humor y ternura, el dolor de una época, el nacimiento del amor y, sobre todo, el verdadero significado de la literatura para la humanidad: nadie está solo mientras haya libros.

Nos encantan los libros de @ediciones_salamandra. Este en particular es cuidado de principio a fin, con una foto delicada y dulce en la portada y un epílogo conmovedor de Annie Barrows.

QOTD: ever taken a road trip?
Two years ago I went on a road trip around Australia. It was awesome going from my home city To Uluru and home again. Saw so much, like this beach.

Relaxation with a great book is always a good vibe😜💁🏽‍♀️
_
엄마라는 보편성을 버린다.
'...해야 한다'는 강요를 외면한다.
아이와 나의 관계는 오로지 단 하나,
우리만의 특수한 관계이니
우리에게 맞는 삶의 규칙이 필요함을 인정하고 실천한다.
때때로 중심을 잃고 쓰러지면
밖으로 나가 햇빛을 쐬고 탁 트인 공기를 마신다.
몸을 움직인다.
운동을 한다.
뚝뚝 떨어지는 땀방울을 닦으며 터질 듯이 요동치는 심장을 느낀다.
달아오른 체온만큼 나는 다시 뜨거워진다.
더 이상 눈물을 억누르지 않는다.
나는 종종 눈물을 흘린다.
내 이야기에 공감하며
진심으로 귀 기울여 들어주는 사람들 앞에서의 눈물은
절망과 우울을 털어내는 치료제다.
나의 감정을 보다 주의 깊게 살핀다.
나의 하루를 더욱 풍요롭게 가꿔가려 노력한다.
[아이가 잠들면 서재로 숨었다_김슬기]

I’ve already asked YOU a question today, so feel free to ask ME ANYTHING!
.
.
Fun update: I got EVERYTHING on my list done from earlier today. I had some serious doubts about it actually being completed. I took the day slow, and at my own pace, and it definitely paid off. I feel very accomplished. .
.
My next pet project is going to be clearing some clutter. This includes clothes, bookish items, papers, etc. I will likely look to give or sell some of the items as I really want to be freer. Not necessarily whatever seems as “minimalist,” but minimalist for me. 😊 .

Tammy killed her husband. She shot him between the eyes with his Timber Classic Marlin. The bastard deserved it, she confessed.
.
Did he?
.
It’s Luna Goldwyn’s job to convince a jury he did. That Tammy killed a sleeping man in self-defense. There’s just one problem. Luna’s never first-chaired a murder trial. Her client list runs long with petty criminals facing probation violations and drug court, but never a cold-blooded murderer.
.
Until now.
.
When Mikey George, Tammy’s lawyer, drops dead three days before closing arguments, the job’s left for Luna to finish. Not only must she convince a jury to consider Tammy’s reasons for murder, but also to keep her from death row.
.
When Luck Dies is the first story in the Murder Lawyer Series. Get your free copy. Link in profile.

A great start to reading in 2019 courtesy of this free book from @randomhouse.
I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
.
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker came hot out of the gate and sucked me in! I love dystopian and I loved the unique story and setting. I couldn’t put it down for the first 80 or so pages. .

As the book developed, the pacing slowed, but it kept me turning the pages nonetheless. The various points of view and different stories were interesting, but kept me at a somewhat emotional distance. I would get wrapped up in one story and then have to switch gears and reinvest with someone else. What I love about these sorts of stories is that they make me think about what I would do in the same situation. It’s not a spoiler alert to say I would be a hot hysterical mess. Ha ha! What makes it so compelling (and alarming) is how plausible this scenario could be.
.

Overall, this was a creative, enjoyable read. There were slow spots but also moments where I held my breath. I recommend. .

Who else has read this? Thoughts?

Dinner for one, a glass of wine, and a good book. A wonderful evening indeed. Something about the name of this one struck me.

I hope your evenings are as good as mine, and filled with cheer aplenty.

Do you like books that make you cry? Are there any specific books on your shelf that make your eyes misty? I checked the Amazon reviews for REDEMPTION GROVE recently and noted how several reviewers mentioned how the book made them shed some tears. I'm truly honored for the reviews. I'm also truly humbled to know my book made readers feel something. For me, that's what it's all about. You guys rock! 😊 I ❤ My Readers.

Hello, friends! Our book today is THE ROUGH PATCH by Brian Lies, a heartbreakingly lovely story about loss and healing.

Evan and his faithful dog did absolutely everything together. They played games, shared treats, went exploring and on long drives, always side-by-side. The thing they loved the most was working in Evan’s beautiful garden, working day in and day out to grow healthy, happy vegetables and plants. That is, until one terrible morning when Evan’s dog is suddenly... gone, and the farmer must lay his friend to rest in a corner of their garden. Heartbroken, Evan shuts himself inside, no longer interested in tending his plants. In desperate grief, he emerges one morning and hacks to garden to pieces, destroying the healthy, fertile plants and letting sharp and stinging weeds take over the soil - since he is bitterly sad, so too will the garden be. That is, until a small pumpkin vine wheedles it’s way in, and begins to change everything.

Powerful. Using the garden as a moving metaphor for emotional and mental state, especially after a traumatic loss, Lies spins a deeply poignant story about overcoming depression, and does it well. Most impressively, the story walks a delicate line that encourages the reader not to let their sadness poison what makes them happy, yet promises that if they do, this is a normal and understandable reaction, and there is still hope. It’s such an important message, and beautifully done: Evan’s vine eventually grows a massive pumpkin, which brings him to the fair, where he reconnects with old friends and activities that made him happy. The compassionate, atmospheric art is pitch perfect, and the attention to detail superb. The length is great for any age, and we loved it - an affecting tale with an important message, and Baby Bookworm approved.

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. This YA novel is a mash-up of every superhero story you’ve ever read or watched. John Smith is a teenager (like Spider-Man) from a distant planet (like Superman) who is developing supernatural powers (like the X-Men). He’s being hunted by the people that destroyed his home world. It checks all the cliche boxes: the misfit hero who moves to a small town, the beautiful cheerleader, the bully jock on the football team (who used to date the beautiful cheerleader and now hates the misfit hero for dating his former girlfriend), the geeky friend, the wise father figure, and the loyal dog. If I didn’t love it so much I’d hate it! Eye-rollingly predictable but fun. RATING: 2/5 on an adult scale but if I had read it as a young teenager it’d probably be a 4/5. RECOMMENDED FOR: superhero fans. IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU’LL LIKE: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.

I had two favorite books when I was a kid that I would read quite often. •
One was The Secret Garden. 🌹

Do you have any favorite books from your childhood that you remember you would reread?

📚Book Review! ⭐⭐⭐
So I picked this book out at a library sale, not knowing what it was about. It caught my eye because of the review from Stephen King on the title: ". . . one of the premier horror writers of his or any generation." I also liked the cover art and the name of the book. •

This book is broken up into four different short stories according to the seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. There's a story about an obsessed lover who becomes a killer, a child who eliminates her mother's lovers with storms, a group of people trapped in a Post Office that get picked off one by one, and a dark figure that stalks a stressed woman and gets rid of what makes her unhappy. They're creepy short reads that I enjoyed, but were pretty predictable. I still had fun with it, though. 3/5 stars.

📚Book review! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wow...just wow. I came across Summer of Night through Bookstagram, and I'm so glad I did! This novel reminds me of It mixed with Stranger Things. When I read books about childhood adventures, I always imagine what it would have been like throwing mud clots, jumping in ponds, playing baseball, and getting cuts and bruises. When I was a kid, I shut myself in my room and read.😅 Now I can relive my childhood that-never-was through these amazing stories. If you want to follow five 12-year-old boys on the adventure of their life, during a summer they will never forget, in a town full of secrets that don't want to be brought to light... I highly recommend this novel. Summer of Night will haunt me for quite some time, I'm sure of it. 5/5 stars.

📚Book Review!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Check in. Relax. Take a shower...."

I've always loved the movie Psycho, so I thought I'd try out the book! Extremely well written and definitely a page turner. Multiple personalities have always interested me, and Robert Bloch sets up Norman Bates' character so well. You can't help but feel sorry for him even after all he has done. If you want a quick read for the Halloween season, if you loved the movie, or if you just want to read a good book, I definitely recommend Psycho! 5/5 stars.
I love stumbling upon hidden gems!

@thetomsnowden and I went to a historical cemetery and ended up finding a ghost town!

I bought this book at their antique shop. Have you ever played with a Ouija board?

I'm going to do mine as a Stephen King edition because we all know I'm that obsessed 🤷‍♀️😅

⚰Character that impressed you the most: I'd have to say Sai Roland Deschain of Gilead from the Dark Tower Series. From becoming the youngest gunslinger, to his long and hard journey to find the Dark Tower..he never gave up.
⚰Title that convinced you to read the book: Desperation. I just love that title and the artwork on the cover. So creepy.
⚰Book that taught you something: I feel like all of Stephen King's books teach me something..but if I had to choose one, I'd choose It. That book was full of friendships, family, loyalty, and bravery. •
⚰The book that gave me a passion to read: my first Stephen King book I ever read was Pet Sematary when I was in elementary school and I was hooked. Then I read The Green Mile, Cell, etc. •
⚰A book that made you cry: Oh lord. The Dark Tower. That ending had me messed up for days. Still has me messed up. •

I'm going to tag @treppy13 @shane_of_the_dead @sai_tannhauser to join in the tag. You dont have to do it as a Stephen King edition as I did, but it was fun that way😅
