“Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.” Sarah J Maas – „Imperium Burz”
Książki Sarah J Maas moim zdaniem należą do najlepszych pozycji jakie przeczytałam.😍 Autorka każdą swoją książkę wykreowała idealnie. Nie mogłabym im nic dodać, ani ująć. Wszystko od przedstawienia postaci, ich charakterystyki, opisu miejsc, dialogów pokochałam od pierwszych stron. Od roku jestem zaznajomiona z całą serią „Szklanego Tronu”. Myślę, że nawet za 20 lat powiem to samo. 🙈✨Ta seria nie jest dla każdego, ale śmiało może ją przeczytać młodzież. Trzeba mieć nieskończoną cierpliwość do autorki, która prowadzi historię tak, że nikt się nie spodziewa tego co się wydarzy dalej. Od roku wyczekuję ostatniej części, która swoją premierę będzie mieć w paździerku. Mówię o „Kingdom of Ash”. Od chwili podania tytułu zastanawiam się, KTÓRE królestwo popiołów, co się stanie z moją Aelin i resztą głównych bohaterów..😭😭
ACOTAR to najlepszy romans-fantasy jaki mógł mi zostać polecony. Przez tą serię lista moich mężów literackich powiększyła się o 5 osób. Tak jak Maas dała popalić czytelnikowi w drugiej i trzeciej części to nie wiem czy jakiś autor byłby wstanie to pobić.😶 Trzecia część złamała mi serce i dała poczucie pewnej satysfakcji. ACOFAS czytam aktualnie i moim zdaniem jest fajnym dopełnieniem serii.😀 #bookstagram#bookshelf#bookworm#sarahjmaas#throneofglass#throneofglassseries#acotar#acomaf#acowar#book#szklanytron#samsunggalaxy#bookishlove#bookphotography#czytam#czytambolubie
“I swear, people can’t wrap their minds around the concept of a fat girl who doesn’t diet. Is it that hard to believe I might actually like my body?”
― becky albertalli, leah on the offbeat 🌙
So I finished Leah on the Offbeat yesterday and ahhhh, it was so 👏🏼 dang 👏🏼 cute 👏🏼
Leah is a prettier, cooler and way more talented version of me with more friends.
Can she come across as unapproachable and mean? Yes, but god damn do I love and relate to her so much. She is secretly such a sensitive soul who is so passionate about her beliefs. She is so pure and perfect and awkward and beautiful.
This entire book was just me falling in love with her.
Minus all her talent, we are the same: sarcastic as hell, have a resting bitch face, bad at expressing our feelings even to those we care about, extremely cynical, love to read fanfiction, and we both are giant nerds who love anime. (SHE LOVES FRUITS BASKET!! can I marry this girl?)
I loved her in Simon and I loved her even more in this book.
She is a bisexual queen in every way.
I guess my only complaint is it got a bit too teen angsty with a lot of miscommunication, especially toward the end. I also had a problem with the whole Nick and Garrett thing, the ending was kind of rushed. I just wish the characters would just communicate and talk with each other.
But overall, Leah on the Offbeat so adorable and pure. I loved Bram and Simon so much. Also, I clearly need to reread Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda because HOW DID I MISS ALL THE SIGNS?? Maybe Simon is more of an unreliable narrator than we first originally thought. Like, I love you Simon, but you're an adorable, clueless, unobservant little poop.
Have you read Leah on the Offbeat? What did you think of it? 💛

Best book of the year so far. Oakland through the eyes of beautiful characters representing the richness of the Native American cultures. Gertrude Stein and Radiohead mixed with Native voices and Orange’s unique prose.
“We don’t have time, Nephew, time has us. It holds us in its mouth like an owl holds a field mouse. We shiver. We struggle for release, and then it pecks out our eyes and intestines for sustenance and we die the death of field mice.”
Kashmir is the real test of secularism in India. - Mahatma Gandhi
Behold, I shine, narratives of Kashmirs women and children, is the stories of those fifty percent of the population, which generally remains hidden from the general public, and especially when someone is living in a land which is under 24 x 7 surveillance.
THE stories in this book is almost same of all the kashmiri women the Author talked with, like the sudden - disappearance of their husband/son, fake encounter's, sexual molestation, and the struggle to survive and their zeal to fight the battle ( legally ) alone against the mighty Indian State/army.
Although the Author herself visited kashmir several times, and talked with the various families who had lost their family members in the conflict between the azadi protesters and the indian army, but i guess her knowledge of geopolitics is very poor, Because Kashmir issue is multidimensional, now it is not a issue between India and pakistan, And now several global terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda and Daesh ( ISIS ) have their own plan for kashmir. The term like khurasan is one of the examples. And also the rising influence of wahhabism is now penetrated deep into the sufi-mystic culture of kashmir.
At last thanks to the Author for telling these stories which most of the times remain hidden from the Indian public. I will end this with these lines-
'' When it comes to kashmir, the conscience of average indian is dead.''
A Obscena Senhora D, de Hilda Hilst.
Considerado como um dos livros mais desafiadores de Hilda, é muito diferente do que as pessoas estão acostumadas. O texto foi construído num fluxo surreal de frases e palavras, propositalmente em desacordo com as normas gramaticais. A autora combina com maestria o sublime e o profano para lançar muitas verdades em nossa cara, não se importando se irá chocar o leitor. É um livro intenso, melancólico, áspero, pode ser difícil de ler, mas é quase impossível de abandonar. É uma obra para ser mais sentida do que compreendida.
Superficialmente, conta a história de Hillé, chamada de Senhora D, D de Derrelição, que quer dizer desamparo, abandono. Hillé é uma senhora de sessenta anos muito questionadora que perdeu o marido, mora no vão da escada, está deprimida e enlouquecendo. Aos poucos, o seu comportamento começa a incomodar os vizinhos, ela assusta as crianças e se mostra nua, por exemplo. Enquanto alguns têm pena e tentam ajudá-la, a maioria a ridiculariza.
O livro é muito mais do que isso e só lendo para entender. É um experiência única de leitura!
What’s your Favorite Harry Potter Quote? .
There are so many that I love, basically anything that Dumbledore says turns into a favorite quote of mine. But I also love featured quote by Hermione 💜💜.
Thank you Asma @wizarding.letters for sending me this gorgeous artprint 💜.
The illustrated edition of PoA was send to me by the lovely @shotmeinthebook last year on my birthday, remains one of my favorite gifts ever 😍💜
This is the third book I picked up for the Golden Man Booker Prize award. I didn’t really know what to expect with this book, and I did not read anything about it before I began. What I found was a full novel that explores the intricacies of various people who are all somehow stuck orbiting one man whom they call the English patient because they do not know his name.⠀
The war is over, yet some people seem at a loss to figure out how to move on. Hana has decided to stay in Italy to nurse a patient who is burned beyond recognition. She is left unprotected, and she makes her choice despite the army urging her to leave with them. When Caravaggio, an old family friend of Hana’s who was a spy in the war learns her whereabouts, he heads her way to try and convince her to head home to Canada with him. Finally, they are joined by Kip, a Sikh who has been hired to dismantle bombs after the war. He is quirky, which makes him the perfect addition to their little group.⠀
Needless to say, the characters in this book have undergone many changes and challenges in their short lifetimes, and the novel explores how these four people have handled the events pushed upon them. Readers hear the story from all four perspectives which allows us to really understand the inner thinking of each of the characters. This can be confusing at times since it’s not super delineated to define who is speaking, but it can be figured out withou too much effort.⠀
Overall, I really enjoyed this book for its deep dive into the human psyche and for its depiction of a time in history I am fairly unfamiliar with, especially from the perspective of these four people. I don’t want to reveal the ending, but it will surprise you in the quiet way a book can surprise you. If you’re up for a challenge, pick this book up!

Даремно на обкладинці написано "історія про кіно і тіло". Бо ця історія власне про думки і вибір. Коли йдеться про порно індустрію, то здається, що там усе з примусу й точно не з власної волі. Що там не сильно й розмірковують про принципи й цінності
Найдивнішим в історії "Saint porno", записаній Богданом Логвиненко, є те, що свій шлях у порно кар'єрі героїня книги обрала сама, цілком свідомо й добровільно. Вона має своє ставлення щодо цього, як і до всього, що відбувається в її житті, свої принципи й віру. Вона не відчуває себе жертвою й зовсім не соромиться того, що робить. Це її шлях, її тіло, її життя
Не зважаючи на присмак цинізму й іронії у розповіді, десь підсвідомо розумієш, що це не просто монолог - це свого роду сповідь
Бо якими б незалежними і впевненими ми не були, завжди знаходиться інше, нове мірило всього, здатне змінити навіть ідеальні пропорції
Happy Publication Day to BRING ME BACK by B. A. Paris. I know this one has gotten some mixed reviews here in the bookstagram community but I really enjoyed this one. The plot was fast paced, the characters were likeably unlikeable and I will never look at nesting matryoshka dolls the same way again. I thought I had the final solution all figured out, but I was only partly right. I just love a big surprise at the end. This is a fantastic summertime read. Pick up your copy ASAP! Thanks so much to @stmartinspress for my advance copy in exchange for my honest review. 😱❤️📚

It's been a while since I posted about my #currentread. Both the books that I am reading at the moment are impromptu reads that I had no plans of reading!! Both as diverse as can be, am honestly very excited to be reading my first Perumal Murugan. Knowing me, one might know that I have been disappointed one too many times by present day Authors of Indian origin, but this one- I really hope won't let me down! The few books that I have enjoyed from the home land have been translations of Authors who write in the regional languages from across India. They sure have the a charm that most fellow Authors of theirs lack as they try to write something that more westernised and "cool".. would love to hear your thoughts on it! Do you reckon that regional writing is much more impactful than the Indian writing in English? .
For those of you who would like to know what poonachi is about, here is the #goodreads summary:
Through a seeming act of providence, an old couple receives a day-old female goat kid as a gift from the cosmos. Thus begins the story of Poonachi, the little orphan goat.
As you follow her story from forest to habitation, independence to motherhood, you recognise in its significant moments the depth and magnitude of your own fears and longings, fuelled by the instinct for survival that animates all life. Masterly and nuanced, Perumal Murugan’s tale forces us reflect on our own responses to hierarchy and ownership, selflessness and appetite, love and desire, living and dying. Poonachi is the story of a goat who carries the burden of being different all her life, of a she-goat who survives against the odds. It is equally an expression of solidarity with the animal world and the female condition. The tale is also a commentary on our times, on the choices we make as a society and a nation, and the increasing vulnerability of individuals, particularly writers and artists, who resist when they are pressed to submit.

Most of the books I’ve read this year. As you can see, I’m currently really enjoying these hood novels. Takes me back to grade school when I used to read Fly Girl using a broken book light.
Comfy days off, missing this perfect yellow armchair in our old place 😭. It was such a dreamy reading spot, right beside the big window for all the perfect natural light for reading 🙌🏻.
Where do you like to read? I don’t normally enjoy reading on my bed but I don’t like the couch in our new place so I’ve been gravitating towards the bed more and more.
