🎉🎉 I have the honor of my first #bookmail ever being #AmericanDirt by @jeaninecummins 🎉🎉 Though her research began back in 2013, we need this novel now more than ever. When we think of migrants and immigration we need to be thinking of the real individuals with stories, hopes, dreams, and reasons. It cannot be stripped of its humanity. 
I already teared up reading the author's note so I suspect I'll be moved start to finish. Mark your calendars for this release or just keep following me, I'm sure I won't shut up about it! Thank you to @flatiron_books !

Can you guess what's next on my TBR? 🤔😀 What's YOUR next read?
📚
📚
I've heard nothing but glowing reviews about Get a Life, Chloe Brown by @taliahibbert — and I CAN NOT wait to start this beauty!
💜
💜
Blurb:
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family’s mansion. The next items?
.
Enjoy a drunken night out.
Ride a motorcycle.
Go camping.
Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex.
Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage.
And... do something bad.
But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
.
Redford ‘Red’ Morgan is a handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle, and more sex appeal than ten-thousand Hollywood heartthrobs. He’s also an artist who paints at night and hides his work in the light of day, which Chloe knows because she spies on him occasionally. Just the teeniest, tiniest bit.
.
But when she enlists Red in her mission to rebel, she learns things about him that no spy session could teach her. Like why he clearly resents Chloe’s wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior… 💜

📚"《Soy Bárbara- se dijo, para alejar la furia que le provocaba la sonrisa tonta de su padre- sé cuánto valgo y me importa un carajo lo que opinen》. Ese convencimiento, al que se aferró para sobrevivir aquella noche, fue el que dominó su vida." Esta frase resume completamente lo que es este libro. 
Esta segunda mitad del año estuve yendo a varios eventos organizados por editoriales. Nunca lo había hecho por que, al no conocer a nadie, me daba vergüenza ir sola. ¿Ustedes fueron a alguno? Si lo están dudando, vayan! Es muy lindo estar rodeada de gente que siente la misma pasión que yo por la lectura y escuchar hablar a otros tantos que nos acercan los libros. Uno de los eventos que fui hace unos días fue el festival "Historias que enamoran". #festivalhqe

Muchas autoras invitadas contandonos de sus libros, sus espacios de escritura y como son cuando están en el rol de lectoras. Una de esas tantas autoras fue María Border. Por esas casualidades, tengo dos libros de ella, comprados totalmente al azar. Fue ver una sinopsis y llevarlo a casa. Como había firma de libros, quería tenerlos leídos cuando estuviera con ella. Obviamente, no llegué pero agradezco no haberme apurado con este libro, por que es de esos que se merecen su tiempo de lectura. "La estrella prohibida" nos cuenta la historia de Bárbara: su adolescencia, su adultez; sus miedos y su libertad. A la edad de 13 años, se ve en un nuevo barrio, junto a sus padres y su hermana Melisa. Ya desde el primer día conoce a Yago, Luciano y Tadeo (alias el Sapo), unos chicos que formarán parte de toda su vida. Siendo unos años mayores, estos adolescentes sienten la necesidad de cuidarla de todo y de todos. Pero Bárbara es fuerte, es decidida y no se deja pisotear por nadie. Su carácter y su boca hacen que vaya al confronte todo el tiempo, defendiendo sus creencias incluso frente a sus padres; incluso si eso hace que resiba unos cuantos golpes.

Qotd : Have you ever seen a ghost? 😌 Also did any of you read Creepover series? .
I haven't seen any ghost and I would like to keep it that way. I have read the series though because I love reading stories which are related to these supernatural presences or creatures (?). @veschwab writes some good stuff on them and this book is one of them. Its predecessor creeped me out and this did the same. Cass and his ghost bestie go on yet another ghost-venture. This time in Paris and some serious challenges are dished out for Cass this time. 
I loved this book for its narrative technique, the descriptions were beautiful. I love Paris! J'aimerais aller à Paris un jour 😊 (For a detailed review please visit my blog - link in the bio)

“That became my mantra for motherhood from there on out. You have suffered enough. If you can make it easier, make it easier, and don’t feel guilty about it.”
•
Dear Girls is Ali Wong’s memoir written as several letters to her two daughters explaining life lessons she’s learned the hard way and her hopes for their future, including how they better not be stand-up comedians. •
She writes about the immense struggle of being a female Asian American comedian in a sea of white males, the intense pressure of being a working mom and her fears of raising wild children since she herself was one. There’s even a guide to the best Asian food restaurants. •
Ali has an unapologetic and hilarious way of speaking her truth. I switched between the audio and hard copy and would recommend the audio, read by Ali, it definitely adds to the experience.
•
I fell in love with Ali after watching her stand up specials on Netflix and this was almost as good. She talks about how hard it is to be a mom in such a candid and honest way. It’s something that you don’t hear often enough and if we can’t laugh about it we’ll just end up crying.

Mi rivedo, giovane quattordicenne, varcare le soglie del Liceo Classico per la prima volta con il mio Castiglioni Mariotti sbrindellato, ricevuto in eredità. Non sapevo che una volta messo il piede nel mondo latino, sarebbe stato impossibile tirarmene indietro. Perché i latini, e la loro letteratura, e le loro superstizioni, i loro dei e i loro grandi autori avrebbero avvolto per sempre la mia vita con il peso magico delle cose difficili e grandi. ⁣
⁣
La tragedia, in questo senso, è forse il dono più bello dell’immenso lascito che devo alla mia formazione liceale. Nella tragedia ci si riconosce, ci si addolora, ci si affeziona e si odia perché, prima di noi, persi in una mitologia che affonda le radici all’inizio del tempo, eroi e carnefici si sono scontrati con gli affanni della vita. E questo continuo dell’animo umano, che si trova scagliato in tempi sempre diversi, ma negli stessi dolori e gioie, fa capire che in fondo all’uomo c’è qualcosa che non muterà mai di forma. I latini e i greci hanno preso questo qualcosa e gli hanno dato nomi, volti, spessore teatrale. ⁣
⁣
Non importa che Seneca abbia composto le proprie tragedie nel I secolo d.C., la sua psicologia, quella che anima i suoi personaggi, ereditati anch’essi da precedenti tradizioni, è ancora così tanto nostra che quando la spada trafigge i figli di Medea o il petto di Fedra, ci si sente trafitti a propria volta. ⁣
Ciò che è umano non cambia mai di forma e di sentimento.⁣
⁣
“Il risultato è la creazione di un teatro che è contemporaneamente umanistico e infernale”, cito l’introduzione di Biondi per questa edizione @rizzolilibri tradotta dal grandissimo Traina che comprende la Medea e la Fedra, donne umane colme del potere oscuro degli inferi.⁣
⁣
Seneca sa dare a entrambe un’altra veste rispetto a tutte quelle già tramandate, nella sua visione queste donne che perdono la ragione e si condannano da sole per i propri peccati, non hanno alcuna possibilità di perdono. La mia amatissima Medea, la sua controversa forza, di eroina e carnefice insieme e Fedra, ingannatrice, ingannata a sua volta dall’amore per il figliastro.⁣
⁣
Tornare alla letteratura latina, per me, sarà sempre come tornare a casa.

✨ @reesesbookclub made me do it!! @reesewitherspoon November Book Pick is - ‘The Giver of Stars’ By @jojomoyesofficial , anyone else read this or wants to?✨
—————————————————————————
BOOK SYNOPSIS:
‘Alice had come halfway across the world to find that, yet again, she was considered wanting. Well, she thought, if that was what everyone thought, she might as well live up to it.’
-
England, late 1930s, and Alice Wright - restless, stifled - makes an impulsive decision to marry wealthy American Bennett Van Cleve and leave her home and family behind.
-
But stuffy, disapproving Baileyville, Kentucky, where her husband favours work over his wife and it’s dominated by his overbearing father, is not the adventure - or the escape - that she hoped for.
-
That is, until she meets Margery O’Hare, a troublesome woman - and daughter of a notorious felon - the town wishes to forget.
-
Margery’s on a mission to spread the wonder of books and reading to the poor and lost - and she needs Alice’s help.
-
Trekking alone under big open skies, through wild mountain forests, Alice, Margery and their fellow sisters of the trail discover freedom, friendship, and a life to call their own.
-
But when Baileyville turns against them, will their belief in one another - and the power of the written word - be enough to save them? ——————————————————————————

Sometimes, I just want to put on a pair of earplugs and leave the whole world behind for a while. Especially when there are tragedies happen in other places in the world, and you can do nothing to help them. Just thinking about them makes me so sad and frustrating.

Sometimes, I just want to put on a pair of earplugs and leave the whole world behind for a while. Especially when there are tragedies happen in other places in the world, and you can do nothing to help them. Just thinking about them makes me so sad and frustrating. #prayforhongkong . 有時候真想戴上耳塞,遠離塵囂一段時間。特別是當年你知道在世界的其他角落悲劇正在發生中,但你卻無能為力時,真的很難過。 #香港加油 . #thebookstagram #caffeinated #books #readingtime #awalktoremember #toalltheboysivelovedbefore #reading #igreader #coffee #readingtime 📖 #閱讀 #文學 #閱讀時光 #文字 #書單 - 11 hours ago

Hello Bookstagram ✨
J’ai commencé Les aventures d’un apprenti gentleman et pour l’instant j’aime beaucoup ma lecture !

Je trouve Monty très drôle je pense que ça va être un personnage coup de cœur.

Bien qu’ayant vu passer quelques avis sur ce livre, je n’ai pas cherché à voir de quoi il parlait réellement. Je sais que l’on va parler de piraterie, mais pour l’instant je ne sais pas comment cela va être mis en place. J’espère finir ce livre cette semaine et vous en reparler très vite ! ▪️▪️▪️▪️ #book #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfrance #bookblogger #bookish #booknerd #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bookphotography #bookcommunity #bibliophile #igread #igreader #cozyvibes #readersofinstagram #allthebooks #plaisirdelire #readinglife

A brief break from posting about my current read to report that I finally got my hands on Lullaby by Leïla Slimani. .

I've read very mixed reviews so I decided not to spend the money on buying myself a copy, in case I don't like it, so I visited my local library and picked it up there.
.
It's probably a good thing too, because I'll actually be forced to read it before it's due back. Rather than it collecting dust on my TBR trolley 😂
.
I'm excited to get to this one soon! Let me know your non-spoilery thoughts of this book down below! I'm so interested to hear the divided opinions! .
