Happy #selfieday ! 🙋🏼♀️Thought I’d take this opportunity to re-introduce myself on here since it’s been awhile. 👋🏼 I’m Megan. I’m 27 and live in beautiful Colorado where I’ve lived since I was a few months old. 🌟I didn’t drink coffee until I was 22 and worked for Starbucks and I didn’t like cats until I started dating my boyfriend 6 years ago and met his sweet princess kitty who is the best. Now I’m obsessed with both ☕️😻.🌟I’ve always loved to read but hated assigned reading (some books I did love in HS were Gatsby and In Cold Blood but I didn’t actually read many of the other assigned books). I did still read regularly outside of school, mostly YA fiction like Sarah Dessen and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and *blegh* Twilight (confession: I took a trip to Forks, WA at age 18 and it was seriously underwhelming but I did fall in love with the PNW while there. Also, I was such a dedicated fan that I quit reading halfway through New Moon and never finished the series 😂).🌟I have played the violin since I was ten, though I don’t play regularly anymore (but I hope to join an orchestra again soon). 🌟In college I majored in writing and minored in studio art. 🌟I am part of the “Harry Potter generation” that grew up with the characters and attended all the midnight book releases and movie premieres. I still reread the series sometimes multiple times per year... 🌟I fell in love with reading again as an adult after reading 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami and haven’t looked back. Sounds cheesy but it changed my life. 🌟In 2016 I joined #bookstagram and in 2017 I started my blog. 🌟 I love being a part of this community of readers 💕 thanks for following!!
Exams are finally over! 🎉 Time to sleep and read more. It's also been a last time since I've had a #shelfie post, since my bookcase got rearranged lately. I love Leigh Bardugo's books so much, but for some reason I haven't gotten around to finishing this third book in the series. Definitely keen to get back to it though! Have you read Ruin and Rising? How did you find it? ☺️
RESENHA: Mais que Amigos - Lauren Layne 3,5🌟
Li esse livro em uma leitura coletiva e achei um clichê bem gostosinho.
O livro aborda a amizade entre Parker e Ben que dividem apartamento desde a época da faculdade. Eles são amigos inseparáveis! Ela tem um namorado há um bom tempo e ele é um solteiro convicto, do tipo que pegas uma por noite!
Muitas pessoas não acreditam que a amizade deles seja apenas amizade!
Tudo ia muito bem, até Parker levar um pé na bunda do namorado e começar a procurar alguns paqueras para um sexo sem compromisso, algo que Ben não encarou muito bem...
Um belo dia, ela sugere que eles deveriam transar e que tinham que se comprometer que aquilo não mudaria a amizade deles (ops!). Eles comaçm a fazer sexo sem compromisso, mas já sabemos como isso termina, né?
Daí em diante, muita coisa acontece!
O livro é bem gostosinho de ler, previsível, mas achei o meio um pouquinho chato, mas no geral é um livro leve e fluido.
Yesterday on @radionewzealand Rachel reviewed ‘Toitoi’, a quarterly journal which showcases writing and art from New Zealand children aged 5-13. ‘Toitoi’ is a unique and beautifully presented publication, that encourages young creatives and gives them a platform. During the review, Rachel read some excerpts from her favourite pieces: ‘these will be voices to look out for’. Rachel also reviewed ‘Flamingo Boy’ by Michael Morpurgo, a new children’s chapter book that she is highly recommending, that tells the story of two children who are brought together by their differences in wartime.
Finally getting to unpacking the last of my goodies I brought back from SLC 😊 Not only did I get the newly released products, I have a 'little' reading to do, a 'few' video classes to watch, a few blends to make up (ask to smell my Royal Crown Diamond blend when you see me), all while sporting one of my new oily fun tees 😎😎 #ylconvention#freedom2018#home#reading#blends#newclothes

| Difficult Women definitely pairs with the ineffable Marlena. Marlena was a haunting & consuming read with words that spoke straight to my soul. Sadly I’m yet to read Difficult Women or any Roxanne Gay but certainly plan to remedy that very soon. What’s on your Friday hit list? |
I just flew through this southern, atmospheric, family drama today.•
I enjoyed the writing but something isn’t sitting well with me. Lots of unlikable characters and lots of depravity. But obviously I liked something about it to read it so fast. 🤔 Am I making sense? Have you read a book that messed with you a bit? Hopefully I can figure myself out for a review.

[ TEMOS RESENHA NO BLOGGER, LINK NA BIO ]
TÍTULO: Por Lugares Incríveis
ANO DE LANÇAMENTO: 2015
Dois jovens prestes a escolher a morte despertam um no outro a vontade de viver!
Violet Markey tinha uma vida perfeita, mas todos os seus planos deixam de fazer sentido quando ela e a irmã sofrem um acidente de carro e apenas Violet sobrevive. Sentindo-se culpada pelo que aconteceu, Violet se afasta de todos e tenta descobrir como seguir em frente. Theodore Finch é o esquisito da escola, perseguido pelos valentões e obrigado a lidar com longos períodos de depressão, o pai violento e a apatia do resto da família.
Enquanto Violet conta os dias para o fim das aulas, quando poderá ir embora da cidadezinha onde mora, Finch pesquisa diferentes métodos de suicídio e imagina se conseguiria levar algum deles adiante. Em uma dessas tentativas, ele vai parar no alto da torre da escola e, para sua surpresa, encontra Violet, também prestes a pular. Um ajuda o outro a sair dali, e essa dupla improvável se une para fazer um trabalho de geografia: visitar os lugares incríveis do estado onde moram. Nessas andanças, Finch encontra em Violet alguém com quem finalmente pode ser ele mesmo, e a garota para de contar os dias e passa a vivê-los.

⚡️FRIDAY FLASHBACK⚡️Sunshine, stories and learning - I homeschooled/unschooled for ten years, Larissa (my middle child, eldest daughter) didn't go to primary school at all, she's now an Education and Developmental psychologist - she has worked in schools and is now in Private Practice (if you live in Melbourne and need support for you or your children, she's a gentle mama herself).
Sarah went off to Steiner(Waldorf) school for her last two years at primary school. By then I had the 'bonus baby' and couldn't give her the structure she craved. She was a feisty girl at school, knew her own mind early on, dropped her academic subjects in year 12 for art and photography. I had to field phone calls from her teachers who were sure she was 'throwing away her academic future'. I responded that I was happy she had discovered a passion and that I believed this was her journey and she could follow her own path. She studied photography then travelled, later becoming a manager at Flight Centre. For the last few years she has been the director of Boobie Bikkies and has managed my business.
I'm embarrassed to say I haven't stepped foot in a public library in probably 15+ years. Why would I when Amazon will deliver a book straight to my door?! Because my reading list is dozens of books long and this budget doesn't have room for a book fund.

Hi everyone ❤ I spent a few hours to finish this today, after starting it long long ago. Progress was slow, mostly because it's non fiction. I need time for digesting all that information on The Great Gatsby and Fitzgerald's life. Honestly #SoWeReadOn deserves so much praise! MUST READ for fans, and If you didn't like TGG, it may change your mind.
First of all #MaureenCorrigan 's research is super thorough. Her love for the novel just seeps through pages of this tribute. Works inspired by Gatsby, and other treasures (objects used by Scott, letters, manuscripts...) are mentioned. You may learn more than expected about Scott's life, but it's necessary in order to dig deeper, to understand how the plot took form in the writer's mind. Reading about that is quite depressing as only a few people appreciated TGG before he died, not seeing its "greatness".
Corrigan also shares her own experience in teaching and watching adaptions, never shying away from themes like social class or sexuality. Her words remind us that this story from the Jazz Age is still relevant, even "unsinkable" in 21st Century. There are some parts on American culture and history which I didn't know as a Chinese. Afterall, Gatsby is the "great American novel". She tells us what's so great about it, with those symbols, references, emotions, the lasting truth in it,😌 showing a full picture. At the end, this question remains:
What price are you willing to pay for your dream?
How did you feel while reading #TheGreatGatsby for the first time?
#READING THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS TONIGHT & IT IS INDEED BLESSING ME!!!! THE BIBLE.... THE GREATEST BOOK I EVER READ!!🔥🔥🔥🙏🏾🙏🏾 #I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN!!!

Quem conheceu #Simon nos cinemas se apaixonou pelo seu jeito fofo e compreensivo, claro que a sua maneira de ver mundo é um pouco particular, isso vemos mais intensamente em sua obra literária da autora #BeckyAlbertalli com o título: Simon VS A agenda Homo sapiens.
Com pequenas mudanças entre cinema e livro, o livro apresenta com um humor a situação de Simon e sua realidade, me incomoda como certas coisas fluíram, mas não interrompeu as minhas perspectivas com relação a história, mas a grande sacada da autora foi levar até o final a curiosidade de seus leitores para saber quem era o segundo personagem mais importante da história #Blue.
Quem leu amou, e quem não leu se apaixonou por Simon nos cinemas! Mas tem alguns detalhes muito importante que não foram ao ar, então quem quiser se apaixonar e ir mais fundo na história fica à vontade, não será um tempo perdido.
Nota do Livro: 8,0 .
As I put the finishing touches on my manuscript, I'm feeling so grateful to have the opportunity to share God's Word and love with others. He truly can use anyone, and I never take for granted that I get to do this.
the books I have to read as fast as possible. the first book is missing 150 pages. I hope to finish tomorrow 🙌
os livros que tenho para ler o mais rápido possível. no primeiro livro faltam 150 páginas para o final. espero acabar amanhã 🙌

Sobre a Ira/Sobre a Tranquilidade da Alma
As obras latinas que deram origem à terapêutica retórica para o alcance da tranquilidade de espírito. Escritos na metade do século I d.C., em formato epistolar, os dois diálogos contidos neste volume foram provavelmente as únicas obras latinas dedicadas a expor uma terapêutica para a superação da ira e para o alcance de um estado de perene serenidade. Ambos exemplificam a concepção que Sêneca - preceptor de Nero e um dos maiores filósofos da Antiguidade romana - tinha da filosofia: uma disciplina prática, destinada não só a elevar a qualidade ética da vida humana, mas sobretudo a promover um processo de ascese espiritual, conforme a perspectiva afirmada pela doutrina estoica. Em função disso, a abordagem é minimamente teórica, sendo privilegiados os recursos de uma linguagem retórico-literária exuberante, que visa dispor o ouvinte ou leitor à transformação de seu estado de ânimo e à busca de uma conduta moral permanentemente elevada. Leitura indispensável para a manutenção da serenidade em tempos conturbados.
