Lack of Book.
Erin Morgenstern: The Starless Sea. Vintage 2019.

Sidenote from my friend @beybey89: 
I haven’t picked up a book in a while, but whenever I find one that manages to enchant me from the first page, I fall in love with reading all over again.  And afterwards the lack of book can really be felt physically.

Meta Sidenote: This one got sent to me by a friend who feels the same way about books as I, and I thought I'd post it because otherwise you'll have to endure quotes from The Expanse for the next 2 months (there's currently 8 books out and I'm only on book 6, so...). Also, this is a book I'm very much looking forward to reading!

📚DELPHINE DE VIGAN - Vděk 📚

Vděk je mojím prvým prečítaným dielom od Delphine de Vigan a rozhodne nie posledným. Autorkin štýl písania mi neskutočne sadol a knižka sa aj vďaka svojmu útlemu vzhľadu a krátkym kapitolám čítala sama.

Hlavnou postavou je Miška, ktorá trpí afáziou a postupne si prestáva vybavovať slová. Starnutím sa postupne dostane do stavu, kedy sa o seba nevie sama postarať a ubytuje sa v domove pre seniorov. Tam za ňou neustále chodí Mária, o ktorú sa od mala starala, keď jej matka nevládala a stala sa z nich nerozlučná dvojica. Ďalšou osobou, ktorá Mišku navštevuje, je logopéd Jerome, ktorý jej dokonca pomôže nájsť ľudí, ktorí sa o ňu ako o malé dievčatko postarali v čase holokaustu. Dlho ich hľadala, pretože im chcela prejaviť svoju vďačnosť za všetko, čo pre ňu urobili. Svoj dlh splatila Miška zasa starostlivosťou o Máriu a nabádaním Jeroma, aby sa opäť skontaktoval so svojím otcom.

Príbeh je neskutočne smutný no aj humorný zároveň. Plakala som a smiala som sa naraz. Naozaj odporúčam, každý si z tejto útlej knižky niečo odnesie.

Hodnotenie: 5⭐/5⭐

Doing some research this morning I reread parts of this book and it effected me all over again. This really is a must read in my opinion for all Americans, but especially white Americans and ESPECIALLY those that grew up in the south. This book really opened my eyes to so much history that was erased or explained away. .

"En quatre jours, il m'a donné une vie entière, un univers et a fait un tout des parties de mon être." Sur la route de Madison de Robert James Waller

En 1965, le photographe Robert Kincaid, un cinquantenaire solitaire, avide de voyages et de nature, est envoyé dans l'Iowa pour réaliser un reportage sur les ponts couverts du comté de Madison. Il s'arrête pour demander son chemin et fait ainsi la connaissance de Francesca, une femme mariée de quarante-cinq ans qui mène une vie rangée un peu terne. Issue d'une famille italienne traditionaliste, elle a abandonné son métier d'enseignante et son pays pour suivre son mari américain et le seconder à la ferme. C'est un mariage de raison plus qu'un mariage d'amour. Ils ne disposeront que de quatre jours pour se découvrir et s'aimer, avant le retour de la famille de Francesca.  Quel livre, un chef d’œuvre ! Un petit bijou, intense, sensuel, sans mièvrerie, délicat, bouleversant et simple.

En à peine quelques heures j’ai dévoré ce roman, Robert. J Waller m’a transporté durant ses quatre jours intenses avec Francesca et Robert. Ce couple si touchant et sincère.

Je n’ai pas pu résister, les larmes ont coulé, ça ne m’était pas arrivée depuis plus d’un an avec «La voleuse de livre». Je n’ai qu’une chose à dire Lisez le !! 5/5💎

Book 94. This one was so different I almost quit it several times. It’s a murder mystery where a man wakes up in the body of a different person each day. He can only escape if he solves the mystery by the 8th day. This book requires you to think. It was interesting. #read #readersofinstagram #reader #readmore #readmorebooks #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookish #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bookworms #bookgeek

“Quando siete felici fateci caso”, diceva Kurt Vonnegut. E non parlava di grandi trionfi, ma di quelle gioie semplici che durano un attimo. 
Come quando scopri per caso un posto che non conoscevi e ne fai il tuo rifugio, dove ti sentirai sempre al sicuro. Succede così anche coi libri: ne apri uno e ci trovi dentro un po’ del tuo mondo, qualcosa che non hai mai detto a nessuno, o quella frase che ti fa sorridere e ti cambia l’umore. 
Tutto ciò per dire che questo weekend a Milano c’è #Bookcity e la città brulica di eventi dedicati ai lettori. Per stare in tema, su @milanfoodieinsider vi racconto di 5 librerie milanesi che mi fanno sempre brillare gli occhi (e venire l’acquolina in bocca). Perché, come direbbe Kurt, le cose belle vanno dette ad alta voce.

I had the weirdest dream last night. I was under some posession that made me cut off my fingers and remove some of my internal organs and the wounds didn’t heal and it didn’t hurt at all. 
I can’t blame full moon this time.

What a great book - completely original and wonderfully written, I could not stop reading it. I read the entire thing yesterday, stopping only once, just long enough to make lunch. It starts off with one college girl falling into a deep sleep, her roommate unable to wake her. Before long, more and more people fall asleep, the sickness taking over the small town. Brain scans reveal their brains have more activity than has ever been recorded - they're dreaming at an unheard of level. But what are they dreaming of? Told from many view points, #thedreamers explores the power of an epidemic, the response of a town, and the nature of dreams. I loved it and would definitely recommend it.

"Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven't loved enough"⁣
⁣
I finished The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak last night and sighed, it wasn't a regular sigh, it contained the knowledge that I was changed somehow, affected in a way I couldn't yet articulate. Some books have the power to do that, don't they?⁣
⁣
The Forty Rules of love follows two parallel narratives, one is that of Ella Rubenstein who is 40 years old and recently employed as a reader for a literary agent. Ella is suspicious and often scornful of love and it slowly becomes clear that she is in an unhappy marriage. The other narrative is set in the thirteenth century and follows Rumi and his spiritual companion Shams of Tabriz who helps him on his journey to become the famous poet he is known as today. ⁣
⁣
Ella is quickly fascinated by Shams and as a consequence with the writer of the book, Aziz Zahara. As she reads on and learns of Shams' 40 rules of love, she feels the void of love in her life and wonders if Zahara is meant to set her free, like Shams aimed to do for Rumi.⁣
⁣
So many ideas presented in this book resonated with me, caused me to think and also identify my own faults as a human being that I feel humbled by this novel. Elif Shafak writes beautifully and weaves the two parallel narratives really well. I paused when I read this for example -⁣
⁣
"Prose or poetry, the words come to me in flocks and then leave just as suddenly, like migrating birds. I am only the bed of water where they stop and rest on their way to warmer lands"⁣
⁣
The lyrical quality here tugged at my heart so much. An absolute beauty of a book, this one! ⁣

Sunday afternoon 👊😊
Ez a könyv egyszerűen gyönyörű📚😍 a sorozat is valami elképesztő lett, annyira átadja a világot, a környezetet amiben élünk, amit sikeresen tönkre is teszünk! Sajnos! 
Pedig függünk a környezettől, tőle kapjuk a táplálékot, minden lélegzetvételünket ahogy Attenborough mondta. Nem vesszük elég komolyan az egészet, mert azt képzeljük,hogy a környezet mindenből képes talpra állni. Egy bizonyos szintig talán így is van, de el fog jönni az az idő amikor már minden cselekvés késő lesz....s talán nincs is annyira messze az a pillanat,amikor be kell majd látnunk, hogy ezt baromira elszúrtuk...
Ugyhogy tegyetek meg mindent amit lehet, vegyük komolyan, s olyan életet éljünk ami a legkevésbé károsítja a környezetünket!
S nézzétek meg a sorozatot, vagy vegyétek meg a könyvet. Megéri 💪😉
