🥳 Happy Birthday Seaweed Brain! 🥳
.
.
That’s right, it’s Percy Jackson’s birthday! I’m sure he’s celebrating with a large blue birthday cake right about now... or maybe a batch of his mom’s famous blue chocolate chip cookies 😉💙
.
.
@rickriordan ‘s “Percy Jackson” series will always be one of my favorites! The humor, the mythology tale reimagining and little Easter eggs for the diehard myth buffs, lovable characters... this series is just delightful for any age! .

Tell me an older series that you love and think more people should read???
.
I have a lot of older series I love but one I think most people would really enjoy is the Mistborn series by @brandsanderson!!! I know this is pretty popular series but if you like fantasy and you haven’t read it yet I highly recommend it!!! It’s so unique and very well written!!!

Okay. So we all know I'm a @bookofthemonth freak. These are the 4 beauties I found at my local @halfpricebooks this week, with part of my unread collection as the background. 😍📚

Happy Monday bookworms! It’s 6:45am for me and I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and start watching MINDHUNTER on Netflix. I’m obsessed with Criminal Minds so I think I’m going to love it!
To tie in with that, my #qotd is: what is your favourite crime/thriller book or TV show? It’s one of my all time favourite genres and I’d love to talk to you guys about it! What are some you’ve been meaning to start but haven’t gotten around to? What’s the one you keep rereading/rewatching? 🖤🕵🏻‍♀️
.
.
One of my favourite #crimereads of 2019 has to be #thesilentpatient 🖤
I read most of it in one sitting and I loved how well crafted the story was and how well plotted it was! I can understand how some people wouldn’t like it but I really did!

 #selfiesunday though I didn’t take this picture today because I worked all day then came home and took a 2.5 hour nap and now I feel like (and resemble) a zombie. ⠀⠀ Might as well throw some caffeine on top of that and finish my current read, Hush, Hush by Lucia Franco! ⠀⠀ What are you up to this Sunday?

Another amazing buddy read with @shihtzus.and.book.reviews and @csuderbrand154 , we always have the best time with our picks.
•
We had been flying through books lately and through a light fun summer read would be good for us! & since were all devoted @bookofthemonth members, we picked this fun add-on.
•
Julia portrays to have the perfect life but, when things start to go wrong she is not sure how she is going to keep this image up. She can’t spend her summer at their Hamptons house so she must stay in the city. While there she discovers a new gym and a new pet project. Will Julia be able to stay on top of her social pyramid while living her summer in the city?
•
A super fun and quick read for those who love light easy beach reads!

Horror just may be my favorite genre to write. 🖤📝.
.
.
.
I'm here writing my "dark fantasy" series, and one of the story arcs is just turning into plain horror as it spills out. This series is evolving to be a lot more Claymore and Berserk-style fantasy and a lot less Eragon or Lord of the Rings.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: Verity by @colleenhoover -
Lowen Ashleigh is a writer who is hired to finish writing a series for Verity Crawford. Verity was in a car accident that left her in a state where she is not able to finish the series. Lowen moves in the Crawford house with Verity’s husband, 5 year old son and Verity herself who lives upstairs. As Lowen tries to get in Verity’s head she starts to wonder if she is crazy or if something truly disturbing happened in the Crawford home. -
Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors and her writing does not disappoint. In true CoHo fashion I was hooked from the beginning. I wasn’t has creeped out by this book as I thought I was going to be. Though I spent the majority of the book questioning what was true and what wasn’t and making up ideas in my head that by the time I got to the end I wasn’t so disturbed. -
Adults only book!

Lecture terminée : le titre est assez explicite . On visionne la naissance du monstre . Le style de thomas harris est particulier. Le conteur abuse du sens des details et de l’humeur parfois acide . On peut trop bien s’immiscer dans cet atmosphère qui est encore mi tragique mi psychiatrique sur fonds de vengeance glaciale..

Lost myself in the overwhelm for awhile, but found me again in the wilderness this past week. I’m feeling refreshed, renewed, and determined to start again. It’ll be slow going, but I think it’s time I come back to all of you wonderful humans. So sorry for the absence, but hopefully you’ll be getting a better version this time around!
•
I’ll be posting mostly #bookish & #writing content on this account now, but where it relates to both of those things you may see some travel photos as well- because that’s my biggest inspiration and most important refuge from real life. Hope you’ll stick with me, but no hard feelings if eatdrinkreadrepeat was what you were looking for and the new writingtwaddle doesn’t do it for you!

BOOKER REVIEW: Oh, my goodness. Lost Children Archive is about marriage, family and sacrifice. It’s a book about the history of the Apache tribe, a text about the current refugee/immigration crisis, a transcript about America. We follow a family on a road trip across the U.S. (will it be their last as a family?), where they discuss life, loss, America’s historical past, tumultuous present, and frightening future. The parents’ marriage is on the cusp of collapse. The kids are happily oblivious and ready for adventure (but are they really that oblivious?). ----- The parents spend a lot of time entertaining their restless children with oral histories of the Apache tribe, but Luiselli plies this section with several inconsistencies and contradictions. The parents are always disagreeing over what is fact or myth. My take is that Luiselli is trying to demonstrate that all can not be known about the Apache because much of their history has been erased or distorted due to the debilitating effects of colonialism. ---- America’s current refugee crisis is another part of the narrative. The mother takes an interest in child migration, specifically what happens to the “lost children.” This quote floored me: “They weren’t looking for the American Dream, as the narrative usually goes. The children were merely looking for a way out of their daily nightmare.” Let that ruminate. --- Also, within the narrative are chapters from a book the mother is reading, which further themes on child migration, and it is one of this novel’s strengths.---- Okay, now here is the part where I gush. There is a section made up of a 16-page sentence that seamlessly connects two narratives in a way that left me speechless. I don’t use the word “brilliant” very often, but this section was brilliant. Let’s put a capital “b” on there: Brilliant. LCA packed a punch: intense, contemplative, moving, and painful at times —weaving my stomach into knots. An emotional whirlwind with an ending that left me demolished. My goodness. Can you tell I liked it?

Happy Fatathon! It's day one, I started Leah on the Offbeat last night, I got about 50 pages into it and loving it!
I fell in love with Leah Burke in Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, she's literally me, but as a Slytherine lol
💛
For Fatathon I decided to dress up as some of my favorite fat characters! I had so much fun doing this, and hope to dress up as my favorite characters again! So enjoy me pretending to be a model for the next week. I also took these photos before I decided to change my theme, so they kinda don't match, but let's pretend they do! 💛💛

I get this face around big dogs, restaurant food, and books 📚 ⁣
⁣
The forehead vein only starts poppin’ when any of the aforementioned things are found in beautiful places, though 💁🏼‍♀️ #insaneinthemembrane (P.S. How well do I match that emoji?!)

Current read 📚
.
I haven't sat down to read a book in what feels like forever, and I've missed it so much
.
Books are important in my life so I decided to pop the housework on the back burner and plonk myself down Infront of my bookcase
.
I don't actually remember picking this book up or where it even came from but it was drawing me in... .
Currently on chapter Seven and I just don't want to put it down - sleep isn't that important right? .

“There is only one god, and His name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'not today’.”
•••
Who are some characters you try to channel in your day to day life?
•••
I’m REALLY trying to channel my inner Arya Stark right now. I’m trying to reread the Stalking Jack the Ripper series to prep for Capturing the Devil, and it’s not going well. I LOVED this series the first time I read it, but since then I’ve seen so many negative things about it that when I’m reading, I can’t focus on enjoying the book. I’m constantly looking for things to argue with all the haters about or things that will make me change my opinion on the book. I just need to be like Arya Stark and tell all of my negative thoughts NOT TODAY! I think it might be time to leave some of the toxic bookish Facebook groups 🤔
•••
Look at this GORGEOUS “Not Today” necklace that was included in the @inkandwonder.designs “Dangerous and Deadly” Wonder Crate! 😍 I’m going to be wearing this beauty A LOT
•••
There are still Crates available for purchase if you haven’t treated yourself to one yet! You can’t use my rep code on it, but you can use it on all of the new additions to the shop that went live yesterday! 💕

Since moving into my new home, I’ve had some struggles taking photos. It’s such a beautiful house with so much character but the lighting inside is truly horrid so I’ve had to adapt. I now pack an entire bag and bring my suitcase chest outside. It usually take me about 20 minutes just to bring things outside and then even longer coming back in because I have to pack it all back 😂😭 BUT the quality of the pictures are so gorgeous that I’m not mad!
⠀ ⠀
Today has been a great day, spent eating some delicious brunch and shopping at Powell’s bookstore. I purchased the physical copies of the Kingkiller Chronicles and the Bear and the Nightingale which I’m so excited to read!
⠀ ⠀
𝓠𝓸𝓽𝓭 What’s a book that you’re excited to read?

نوعها: دراما، حرب
عدد الصفحات: 656
:
احترت كثيرة في اختيار النقطة التي يجب ان ابدأ عندها ملخص هذه القصة والتي تدور على لسان الموت الذي يروي لنا قصة ليزيل التي تسافر عبر القطار مع والدتها واخاها الذي يتوفى اثناء السفر لعائلة تتبناهم. يسقط الدفان كتاباً لتعاليم الدفن فتسرقه ليزيل ويكون هو اول كتاب تسرقه على الرغم من انها لا تجيد القراءة. بعد ذلك تتداخل احداث قصتها اثناء الحرب العالمية مع قصة العديد من الأشخاص ومنهم اليهودي ماكس، وعازف الاكورديون والدها بالتبني.
:
رواية هادفة على الرغم من انها تعضر احداث الحرب من منظور واحد إلا انها كانت مبطنة برسالة مهمة. استمتعت في قراءة صفحاتها كانت مملة قليلاً لكن الاسلوب كان جميل بشكل عام.
انصح بها..

 #ميتش_ألبوم 
نوعها: دراما، خيال
عدد الصفحات: 202
:
يتعرض إيدي لحادث في مدينة الملاهي التي يعمل بها مما يؤدي لموته بطريقة مأساوية، ولكنه عندما يستيقظ يجد نفسه في الجنة وعليه مقابلة خمسة أشخاص كان إيدي جزء من حياتهم بطريقة قد لا يكون هو نفسه يدركها.
:
قيمت الرواية سابقاً وهذا البوست للتنبية بأن الرواية ترجمت. وانا سعيد بأن هناك من إنتبه لروايات ميتش البوم وقام بترجمتها.
الرواية مليئة بالعبر والرسائل. شاعرية جداً والكاتب بذكاء وصف الاحداث وربطها بصور تبعث مشاعر غريبة مثال مدينة الملاهي الحرب ومذكرات من عيد ميلاد ايدي بين الفصول. أعجبتني الرسالة التي وضعها فب الكاتب وهي كيف لأفعالنا أن تؤثر في حياة الأخرين دون أن نعي ذلك وقد بكونوا أخرين لا معرفهم حتى ومن الممكن لأفعال تافهه نقوم بها أن تؤثر في حياتهم.
وللمرة الثانية كان صعب علي امسك دموعي مع الرواية وخصوصا مع الشخص الرابع في الجنة. 
رواية مليــــــئة بالمشاعر وخفيفة وسلسة قراءتها. انصحكم فيها جداً. من الروايات التي راح يكون صعب اتجاوزها وابقى اتذكر تفاصيلها.

Falo pessoas normais, pois enquanto eu me afundo em meus pensamentos confusos e perturbados, os outros vivem a beleza de uma vida simples e tão trivial, correndo numa praça para abaixarem as taxas de colesterol e glicose, durante a beleza tão superficial de mais um dia de sol na cidade da beleza..." .

“I leaned back on my elbows and basked in the warming spring sun. There was a curious peace in this day, a sense of things working quietly in their proper courses, nothing minding the upsets and turmoils of human concerns.” - Outlander ☀️ This is the energy I’m hoping for today. A day at Disneyland yesterday definitely helped me unwind a bit it’s still a work in progress and I unfortunately can’t go to Disney every day lol. I’m hoping to immerse myself into the world of Jamie and Claire for a while today. I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable weekend! 💜

.
Si a ustedes también les gustan este tipos de libros, les recomiendo:
🍃 Solo quedó nuestra historia, de Adam Silvera
🍃 Una Sonata de Verano, Belén Martínez
🍃 Canción Nocturna, Benjamin Alire Sáenz
🍃 El Chico de las Estrellas, Chris Pueyo

Still obsessed with this series. It long and beautiful and full of fascinating and conflicted characters. I’m not going to try to summarize it because there are too many plot lines. But just know that I think you should read it.
⠀
One of my favorite things about these books is the varying “codes” that the radiants live by. Do you have a code of honor? Or any rules you would never break?

Club de lectura sesión 3: La señora Dalloway.

Two things I find that mix well in my life are my anxiety and my books. Now hear me out! I always have something to do when I show up half an hour early everywhere I go and reading can take me out of my head for a while. That’s why you’ll never ever find me without a book! Ever.

Two things I find that mix well in my life are my anxiety and my books. Now hear me out! I always have something to do when I show up half an hour early everywhere I go and reading can take me out of my head for a while. That’s why you’ll never ever find me without a book! Ever.

For me, it's impossible to participate in Women in Translation month without looking at manga. I've been reading and collecting manga since I was a pre-teen and the vast array of genres and stories were mesmerizing to me when I was young.⁣
⁣
The various art styles and narratives you can find in manga are enthralling. I know that many people don't generally look at manga or comics when selecting their next read, but I think they're doing themselves a disservice by discounting entire spheres of work simply because they're illustrated.⁣
⁣
Fumi Yoshinaga's work in particular is completely stunning in this volume, All My Darling Daughters. The book is divided into five parts, each a short story interconnected with the others through personal relationships.⁣
⁣
Yoshinaga's grasp of human emotion and relationships is unparalleled and this book makes me tear up every time I read it. As a teen quite a bit of it went over my head but re-reading it now only served to show me how nuanced each character is.⁣
⁣
This is a quiet read, unfolding slowly and beautifully as it progresses. The art is spare and lovely, enhancing the story and conveying each lived emotion perfectly.⁣
⁣
If you're looking to give manga a try and enjoy contemporary stories and contemplative reads this is a good place to start.⁣
⁣
💐 Have you read this or any of Yoshinaga's other work? Any other 'entry' manga to recommend? Please let me know in the comments!⁣

"This book is not for the faint of heart or weak in spirit. It's not for skeptics who don't believe in fairy tales or the powerful forces of good. It's only for brave and intrepid souls like you, who will stare down evil in all its forms." I am so excited to read Pan's Labyrinth!!! The cover is beautiful and the artwork within is stunning! I am ready to get lost in this book.

Do you like creepy, dark fairy tales? I love them!

Gah 😍 I love the cover of Tempting Her Neighbor by @authorkylieking ❤️ SO HAWT
.
Ava McMillan is on her way to college and wants only one thing: for her hot, older neighbor Graham Reese to be her first.
She knows Graham is good friends with her father, but when a beautiful, sweet, eighteen-year-old like Ava wants something, she has to have it, no matter the consequences.
Graham has tried to resist but, eventually, resisting Little Ava McMillan becomes impossible. He knows the only way to get her out of his system, is to have his way with her, even if having her means breaking his friend’s trust for life.

Hace 83 años era asesinado Federico García Lorca en Granada. Fue un poeta y dramaturgo español de gran influencia en la literatura y también, en el teatro español del siglo XX.
Después de que la fecha exacta de su muerte haya sido objeto de una larga polémica, parece definitivamente establecido que fue fusilado a las 4:45 h de la madrugada del 18 de agosto, en el camino que va de Víznar a Alfacar. Su cuerpo, que jamás se recuperó, permanece enterrado en una fosa común anónima en algún lugar de esos parajes, junto con el cadáver de un maestro nacional, Dióscoro Galindo, y los de los banderilleros anarquistas Francisco Galadí y Joaquín Arcollas, ejecutados con él. Juan Luis Trescastro presumiría después de haber participado personalmente en los asesinatos, recalcando la homosexualidad de Lorca.

H. G. Wells envió la siguiente carta al despacho de las autoridades militares de Granada:

H. G. Wells, presidente Pen Club de Londres, desea con ansiedad noticias de su distinguido colega Federico García Lorca, y apreciará grandemente la cortesía de una respuesta.

Cuya respuesta fue la siguiente:

Coronel gobernador de Granada a H. G. Wells.—Ignoro lugar hállase D. Federico García Lorca.—Firmado: Coronel Espinosa.

👉🏻 What is a deal breaker for you when it comes to a book— it can be anything.. character trait, trope, plot issue?? What kills a book?

Here is a shot taken looking down from the upper level of Riverby Books! I still can’t get over how gorgeous it was in there. And yeah, I still have a couple more pics I’ll be posting later this week because I took so many. 😂🙌🏻🤷🏻‍♀️

This week's reads. I definitely don't usually have time for four books in a week, but I was in the zone 😂 I rated all of these a 4/5 stars. I am typically super stingy with a 5-star rating, so these were all truly excellent and compelling.
.
.
Evelyn Hugo was, to me, more interesting than Daisy Jones, although the tone felt similar. A fun old Hollywood story with a surprise at the end. Loved it.  #taylorjenkinsreid
.
.
Thirteen is apparently 4th in a series, but I felt like it stood alone just fine. Crazy premise for a story, and it ended up being one that I had to read in almost one sitting. #stevecavanagh
.
.
The Broken Girls was this month's book club pick, and I loved it! The characters were likeable, and it was a quick, interesting read. Loved the dual timeline stories.  #simonestjames
.
.
And finally, Evvie Drake Starts Over. A light read with nice character development. I like when I can truly root for a character because the author has really endeared them to me. #lindaholmes

Thank you @acornpublishing for the free copy of The Haunting of Elmwood Mansion.

Summer is over for the grands so much of their reading time is occupied by school, soccer, rugby, and football. But they still manage to squeeze in a some special reading in between.
H. thought this would be a great new series to start until he discovered the middle graders are older than middle grade and *cough* there’s a possible budding romance involved 😆

👻 👻 Synopsis 👻 👻

Pekin Dewlap hasn’t seen a ghost since she was twelve. But she’d do anything to get them back. Starting a ghost-busting business with her two best friends, Amber and Scout seems like the perfect way to accomplish that goal. Of course, playing with ghosts isn’t high on their wish list, so Pekin has to do some arm-twisting to get them on board.
Once committed, Pekin and her friends find themselves in deep, trying to solve the disappearance of 14-year-old Miranda Talbert. Miranda went missing in 1918, and her spirit has wander the halls of Elmwood Manor for the last hundred years.
In the midst of finding Miranda, discovering her budding feelings for Scout and consoling a terrified Amber, Pekin is met by an angry ghost set on thwarting her plans. Will the ghosties be able to help Miranda, or will Pekin’s business die before she solves the mystery?

Sunday thoughts💭

This book is one of my goodreads treasures that I happened to stumble upon this year. 
I just recently started using Goodreads and was blown away by the massive book loving community. Where have you been all my life?? So about The Night Circus, amigos!

The story starts with two magicians who like to make bets. One of those two magicians is suddenly surprised by a five year old daughter that is left under his supervision. He however is more interested in the magical abilities that his daughter shows early on and makes a new wager with the other magician - and what he wagers off might astound you. He bets his daughter as player in the bet. 
The other magician accepts and searches for a player of his own and so the training and the wait for the game to start begin... Tell me you're like me and have a thousand questions in your head and really really want to have the answers to them NOW! I mean what are the rules of the bet is bound and played with magic?? ✨ 
Definitely an interesting read. Probably not what you'd expect, but nevertheless funny, magical, misleading and with wise words written in riddles and some worded very clear. 
The Night Circus is just what it's supposed to be - a dream come true 
Speaking of dreams, I took the circus of dream with me as a vacation read and the surroundings in Italy are as close to a dream as they can get 😎

Esse é o segundo livro que leio do jornalista Klester e gosto muito desse tipo de livro-reportagem que nos mostra que a realidade de alguns pode ser muito mais dura e assustadora. E para quem nao conhece, essa obra conta a história de Júlio Santana, morador de Porto Franco no estado do Maranhão que se tornou um matador profissional aos 17 anos levado ao ofício pelo tio paterno Cícero, respondendo por quase 500 mortes catalogadas em um caderninho durante seus 35 anos nessa carreira.
Eu gostei do livro, a leitura é interessante e flui bem, porém penso que o autor poderia ter aprofundado um pouco mais nas demais execussoes de Júlio ao longo de todos aqueles anos além das citadas, mas por fim, a história do pistoleiro só reforça a imensa desigualdade social no país e a falta de oportunidades para milhões de brasileiros. Agora que finalizei a leitura quero assistir o filme que foi lançado no ano passado! 🎥

Finalizo mais uma leitura que tem como pano de fundo a Segunda Guerra, e como sempre repito, amo esse tipo de leitura. Para quem ainda nao conhece, O menino do vagão conta duas história paralelamente que nos apresenta duas personagens distintas Astrid e Noa, mulheres sofridas que enfretam algumas perdas, varios obstáculos e frustações em meio a um cenário de guerra, porém o caminho dessas duas mulheres e de um bebê judeu se cruzam de uma forma inesperada, dentro de um ambiente circense. E em meio a um cenário triste, de incertezas e desconfiança, floresce uma linda amizade proveniente de sacrifícios e da necessidade de sobreviver que vai uni-las profundamente e para sempre.
Esse tipo de leitura sempre me toca e posso dizer que adorei o livro. Se trata de uma trama triste, porém emocionante dentro de uma comunidade circense, onde uma linda historia de amizade enfrenta uma dura batalha entre arriscar sua vida ou manter sua segurança. Já adianto que o desfecho é surpreendente 😭, uma boa pedida para quem gosta desse gênero.
