🌖Book Review: The Grace Year🌗
⠀
Short Review: I’m still working through an emotional recovery.
⠀
Long Review: Holy craptastic. This book. What an emotional roller coaster. What a deep, jaw dropping portrayal of women’s struggles. I won’t give spoilers, but the last 60 pages had me in such a state of anxiety that I spammed poor @sand_between_pages with a barrage of text messages insisting that she TELL ME (X) WAS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Of course she was a horrible friend (good) and refused to tell me anything. Anyway, I made it through through the last 60 pages. I survived. If you are a Hunger Games fan and/or Handmaids Tale fan this book is for you. If you want a movie comparison, it gave me M. Night Shyamalan “The Village” vibes. Put this book high on your list. It’s an amazing piece of work. Five stars from me. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Fall is my favourite 🍁 
The weather is cool and rainy so snuggling up with a cup of tea and a good book is the best! 
Also, my birthday is coming up! 🎂 
And you get to wear all things cozy like scarves, sweaters and socks! 🤗

Fall makes me happy! 😊

What’s your favourite season? 💭

¡Buen martes, booklovers! 🥰🙌
¿Cómo van con la lectura conjunta: “Orgullo y prejuicio”? Yo la estoy disfrutando muchísimo, y más aún con esta vista hermosa. Así de bonita amaneció mi calle hoy, así que estoy bien acurrucadita en mi sillón, cerca a la ventana, leyendo con mi mantita y una taza de chocolate caliente ❄️📚 •

Que tengan lecturas muy felices 🥰

This was a cute little Pride and Prejudice comic I read a few months ago. It's super short but sweet and I really liked the artwork.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Helloooo 👋 hows everybody been! Had a lot happening in my life, but I'm moving back to my parents next Friday which gives me access to my books and props and backdrops so I shall return! And my @faerietalescandles candles (featured in this post)
.
I also have a very exciting announcement for an experiment I'm trying out. I sent out a message to my favourite booktubers asking if they could recommend me some of their favourite books. Because my experiment is to try and find out which booktuber has the most similar reading taste to me. Big thanks to @yerabooknerdzoe @thoughtsontomes and @book_roast for getting back to me 😁 as for everyone else I messaged, I'll just pick some books from their favourite book videos. Probably top 3 books of 2019(thank god I proofread, initially typed 2018!) by the time I get there 🤣 go follow these lovely ladies!

.
So when I finish a book every now and then that they have requested you'll here me talking about this experiment! I chose to feature Sanderson because both Sam and G recommended Mistborn (which I'm actually in the middle of) which also works for #tometopple .
Anyway long winded post over 🤣 have a lovely day guys! Just wanted to let you know what I've been up to.

RESENHA: Notas de Liberdade | @benvira | @fredelboni | 4/5⭐️| pág: 232 #resenhapaixaopp .
.
SINOPSE: .
🌿 Notas de liberdade vai contar histórias cotidianas de 3 garotas totalmente diferentes,  mas em busca da mesma coisa: seu lugar no mundo. .
.
🌿O livro traz a história de Mariana uma menina desencanada, não liga para opinião alheia, luta pela direito de ser ela mesma e claro um pouco maluquinha. .
.
🌿Sofia é uma menina SUPER fofa, meiga, romântica que precisa encarar a vida adulta depois de um acontecimento inesperado. .
.
🌿 E Luiza, uma menina super pé no chão e cabeça firme que agora quer ver se a vida que viveu valeu a pena. •
•
NOTAS SOBRE O LIVRO: . 📖 Esse foi meu segundo contato com o Fred e eu posso dizer que ameeei demais e me envolvi completamente na leitura e na vida dessas garotas, principalmente a Sofia, eu me vi muito nela pela sua forma meiga e apaixonada. .
.
📖 Notas de liberdade é um livro que mexe muito com o leitor pois o cotidiano das três garotas é um momento que toda menina irá passar um dia. Afinal, todo mundo tem escolhas, sonhos, dificuldades e sentimentos e tudo isso irá se tratar nesse livro. .
.
📖Com uma leitura rápida, fácil, leve e de super apego, Fred faz nós leitores se identificar muito com suas personagens e com o livro todo em geral. Foi um livro completamente gostoso de se ler e eu indico demais Notas de liberdade. Um auto conhecimento das três personagens porém se encaixa muito bem com nós mesmas. •

🌼Eai? Gostaram da resenha? Comentem aqui se já leram esse livro e o que acharam.

⛪BOOK REVIEW⛪⁣
⁣
UNFOLLOW by Megan Phelps-Roper⁣
⁣
-DESCRIPTION-⁣
This is a memoir by the granddaughter of Fred Phelps, the infamous pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church.  We get a view of the emergence of the church, Megan's childhood, her eventual leaving, and the fallout.
⁣
-THOUGHTS-⁣
1. Wow.  Just wow.  Not only do I have such a huge respect for Megan, but it definitely makes me stop and remember that although many of us are sickened by the message of the WBC, that these are real people, who have been born into this religion...as most people are.⁣
2. At first you may be annoyed by Megan's justification of the picketting, the villification of the counter protestors, and her blind allegiance...but trust me, it's all intentional. We are on this trip with her. We are reading this from her understanding at that exact moment. The members of this church have things in common with most of us, as much as we wish they didn't.⁣
3. Megan's writing is beautiful.  I thought it was brilliant that she not only quotes the Bible throughout...but then once she has left, she starts quoting other literature. Her way of thinking is super spot on for me.  I've had a similar realization with Christianity.⁣
⁣
-RATING-⁣
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⁣
I highly recommend this memoir.⁣
⁣
-SIMILAR RECOMMENDED READS-⁣
The Sound of Gravel⁣
Half Broken Horses⁣
Glass Castle⁣

Paperbacks or hardcover?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I much prefer the way hardcovers look on my bookshelf, and I love when there are special designs on the hardcover (like Heartless by Marissa Meyer); however, I find that paperbacks are a little easier for me to read because I'm not so worried about cracking the spine or crumpling the dust jacket.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Has it snowed where you live? Do you like snow? I woke up this morning to a good bit of snow covering everything outside. I love the appearance of snow--the way it glitters in the sun is gorgeous--but after a car accident that left me without a car for a few weeks, I despise driving in snow. So I'm super thankful that I was able to work remote today and that I did not have to drive in the weather!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quick NaNoWriMo update: I'm currently at 7,201 words on my project. A little behind where I was wanting to be at this point, but I'm determined to stay positive. I've written more than I have in a long time, so I want to be happy about this accomplishment! If you are participating in NaNo, how is it going for you?

I almost forgot about #hallofbookmarks Tuesday! Course work has been crazy lately. Mad-Eye Moody is one of my favorite Harry Potter characters so I was incredibly excited to receive this gorgeous & adorable bookmark in my October @the_nerdybutterfly Rep package! Whose your favorite HP character?!

I am basically ready to switch to my winter theme because the weather highly affects my creativity and mood. However, I have tons of fall photos still waiting to be posted, and I love them, so I may have to alternate for a little while. .

The Dog I Loved (book review)

I’m always incredibly weary of books involving dogs. It’s not that I don’t love dogs, but that I do. For the better part of my life I’ve had a dog, and I understand the deep sense of loss you feel when losing them.

Because of this, I’m always hesitant to read any story where one of the main characters is a canine. But this one is something else.

The Dog I Loved is told in alternating points of view from the two main characters - Rosie and Meghan. Rosie is a twenty-nine year old inmate at a correctional facility in Connecticut, serving twenty years for accidentally running over her fiancé. While serving her time, she becomes part of a program where inmates train puppies to be service dogs. Meghan is a wounded veteran and paraplegic who has recently returned to civilian life and is struggling to have independence. The two meet when Meghan applies for a dog from the program and is matched with Shark, Rosie’s first puppy. The two become unlikely friends. A few years later Rosie is unexpectedly released from prison, through the help of a mysterious foundation, and given a job rehabilitating a historic home in Dogtown, an abandoned village on the edge of Gloucester, MA.

I was immediately interested in this novel for a few reasons, probably the biggest one being the location in the second part of the story, Gloucester MA. I spent the better part of my summers throughout my childhood in Cape Ann and nostalgia got the better of me when I was looking for my next read.

That being said, this is a fantastic book. It is a beautiful tale of the power of dogs to make us feel less alone and help us in ways that humans cannot. But it also is a gorgeous tale of female friendship and kindness. It’s an incredibly emotional story from start to finish, and any who has ever loved a dog should read it!

Thank you to @netgalley and @stmartinspress for my review copy!

Året er 2014. Jeg sidder på mit værelse med en bog omkring historien bag alfer, og efter de første par sider er mit verdenssyn ændret for altid. For på trods af, hvad samtlige børnebøger og film har bildt mig ind er alfer åbenbart oprindeligt onde.

Okay, for dem af jer, der har læst The Cruel Prince eller A Midsummer Night´s Dream er det her nok ikke nogen overraskelse. Men for 13-årige mig var det alligevel lidt af en ubehagelig åbenbaring, at der kunne være sådan en stor kontrast mellem den måde alfer bliver fremstillet på i litteratur. På den anden side er det nok ikke nogen overraskelse, at alfer bliver fremstillet venligere i børnebøger.

Hvis du kunne møde en alf i virkeligheden, ville du så gøre det?

Wr got so much snow yesterday where I live! I was able to work from home yesterday, but I’ll have to drive in it today 😒I’m a very comfortable snow driver, but I don’t have my winter tires on yet.
.
QOTD: A series conclusion that you’re excited for?
.
We’ve been getting so many conclusions this year: Five Dark Fates, The Toll, Supernova, Queen of Nothing, and more! At the beginning of the year Imagine Me will be released and I’m really excited for it! I loved Defy Me and it ended with so many questions left unanswered!

Recently read: Expectation ~ Anna Hope “You must keep hold of your friendships, Lissa. The women. They’re the only thing that will save you in the end.” I read this over the course of last week but could have read it quicker if I had more time, I didn’t want to put it down! 
Expectation is the story of three friends - Hannah, Cate and Lissa. The three women are now 35, but the story flashes back to various moments earlier in their lives, including when they all lived together in their late 20s in a big house on London Fields. Expectation tells the story of these women’s lives and their ‘expectations’ for how their lives would turn out, but I think is also an excellent reflection on society’s expectations of women in their 30s generally, and the pressures that are placed on women to have great marriages, children and also successful careers. 
I did find it depressing that these old friends didn’t particularly understand each other all that well (I don’t think they save each other as much as the above quote warns them to), but I do think the story is a good consideration on the way we view other’s lives and always imagine that the grass is greener elsewhere. This is also an absolute love letter to London, which I of course adored about it (the characters don’t live far from me, their local cinema is my local cinema). All in all I would very much recommend this. It’s being compared to Normal People, and for me it doesn’t quite reach those lofty heights. However (and probably particularly as I am a woman in my 30s) I found this book to be so relevant, on the nose, and an important spotlight on the way as women we view our own lives and those of our friends. I’m sure it’ll keep me thinking for a while, and it will be one I look forward to re-reading. 🍅🍅🍅🍅/5

QOTD- what Christmas reading are you most looking forward to?
I picked up the Christmas, A Biography and I’m super excited to read about all the behind the scenes history of characters 😊.

Has anyone read #thegodofsmallthings? I finished it a few weeks ago and was left feeling terribly conflicted. I loved the gorgeous prose, but a lot of the time I have to admit I was utterly lost!
•
In other news I finally got some freelance work to compliment my English classes! I’m absolutely stoked but also now realise I have to get my time management up to scratch! 😂 I’ve gotten too used to a simple routine!
•
Hope all your weeks are starting off nicely :)
