🇬🇧 Autumn is almost here, I can't contain my excitement 🍁
Do you have any reading habits on the colder months? Mine are reading by the fire on the afternoons and cuddling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book when it's raining outside!
Happy release day to Merged by @jimandstephbooks! And a big thanks to @month9books for sending me a copy of this intriguing read. Seriously guys, this book was so fun and really made me think. The premise is unique. It’s very different than anything I’ve ever read before and is fascinating. I’m excited to see where this story goes! I’ve dropped they synopsis below👇🏻
Seven of our country’s most gifted teens will become Nobels, hosts for the implantation of brilliant Mentor minds, in an effort to accelerate human progress. But as the line between what’s possible and what’s right, draws ever blurrier, the teens discover everything has a cost. Scientists have created an evolved form of living known as Merged Consciousness, and 16-year-old Lake finds herself unable to merge with her Mentor. Lake, the Nobel for Chemistry and Orfyn, the Nobel for Art, are two from among the inaugural class of Nobels, and with the best intent and motivation. But when Stryker, the Nobel for Peace, makes them question the motivation of the scientists behind the program, their world begins to unravel. As the Nobels work to uncover the dark secrets of the program’s origins, everyone's a suspect and no one can be trusted, not even the other Nobels. As the Mentors begin to take over the bodies and minds of the Nobels, Lake and Orfyn must find a way to regain control before they lose all semblance or memory of their former selves.
"The Fruit of Silence" part 75.
Rizz sold 3 jums (20 dollar cracks) out of the first pack and then it slowed down he told him. Rizz wasn’t about to go in though, he told Boogs that this was an a up all night drug so if he stuck around long enough he would catch more fiends later. Boogs was cool with that but he had school and soon his mother would be expecting him to come home. They sat around for another hour and nothing happened so Boogs headed up the hill to get ready for school. Once he walked in the house his mother asked him why was he in so late on a school night and he used Cookie as an excuse and said she was sick so he hung around a little longer until she went to sleep. Boogs hated lying to his mother but that was better than the truth for now. A whole 2 weeks had gone buy and little by little Boogs and Rizz scraped up the money for Cuba. When Boogs met up with Cuba he explained why it took so long to get him the money. Cuba understood the game already and knew Boogs would start off slow anyways. He admired how Boogs had the money all facing the same direction and neat. Cuba told Boogs in the future to always fold your money on the green side it would always find its way back to you. He laughed and then before they went their separate ways Cuba handed him a bag and told him as long as he always came back with straight money he would keep him loaded up because soon you won’t be able to hold onto it. Boogs thought to himself how when he was finished with everything how him and Riz could grab 125 grams by themselves. Cuba trusted Boogs and Boogs would keep on benefiting. Boogs new he would have to branch out and connect with somebody else because the product was top tier it just needed to be moved faster. He stashed what Cuba gave him and thought about who he could trust . Then it dawned on him his man E from BHP in Brighton, it was about a 20 minute drive from RTH. Even though it bordered one of the richest neighborhoods in MA. it was still a project with low income housing families. Boogs met E in middle school, he was white but grew up in a predominately black project so he was just like everybody else, he spoke black slang and dressed black too.
*Book Review* After the heartache of enduring three miscarriages and the impending break-up of her marriage, New York journalist Jaya is desperate to alleviate her grief.

There she meets Ravi, her grandmother's former servant, who tells of her grandmother's strength, forbidden love, and sacrifices. Through these stories, Jaya comes to understand her own mother and finds a strength she never knew she had.
Good morning, bookish friends! I hope your day is starting off nicely. I can't complain here...the sun is shining, my coffee cup is full, and I'm ready to share a review of my latest read. The Storyteller's Secret is a book that has long been in my TBR stacks, and the timing finally felt perfect for reading it. To be honest, I'm struggling to figure out exactly how I feel about this one. It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride for me. For a good long while, I was coasting along, immersed in the story and the setting. My senses were alive as I tasted the culinary wonders of India, greeted my fellow women in their richly-colored saris, felt the sun baring down on me. I ached right along with Jaya as she mourned her three miscarriages. And I was loving the back and forth shifts in both time and perspective. Then, somewhere nearing the end of the book, the rollercoaster seemed to suddenly veer all over the place. The narrative of the story started to become dramatic in a way that, for me, seemed a little over-the-top, and it felt a bit disorienting. However, the ride did even out, and without giving anything away, I was left feeling very satisfied and emotional in all the right ways in the end. All in all, I was happy to have finally read this book. I feel the good outweighed what didn't work for me, and it ended up being a ⭐⭐⭐⭐ for me.
I know the year isn’t out, but I’ll have to read something super incredible in the remaining months to knock Lori Gotlieb’s “Maybe you should talk to someone” off its position of the best book I’ve read in 2019. First of all let me clarify, this is not a self help book although it is a book about therapy and the author’s own journey seeing a therapist... which is interesting because she herself is one. If you’re interested in psychology, interested in understanding yourself through a psychologist’s point of view, or are seeing a therapist and are wondering what makes a good therapist from a bad one, I cannot recommend this book enough! Is is fabulously written and while I detest reading non fiction, this one reads like fiction and was one I could not put down. Recently I have been reading a lot of books about the mind and about psychology and this one was really a fabulous addition to the list, enough that I might even want to do some courses on the subject. It’s going to be a while before I can stop raving about this one. Rating- 5/5 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

#bookreview P.S. I Love You ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 stars
I’m sad to say that this is a rare instance where the movie was better than the book 💔 Maybe it’s because I watched the movie first and it’s been one of my faves for years.. I had a really hard time getting into the book. It’s sooooo different than the movie 😭 I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing style, it felt like the deep connection wasn’t there. I literally cry my eyes out every time I watch the movie and I did not even come close to shedding a tear when I read this book. I’m so sad. I’d say it was an okay read once I finally got into it (about half way through). I wanted to love it but was left disappointed.
Did you read this one? What did you think? Did you see the movie? Which one did you prefer?!? Super curious to know!
Side note, I just read a preview of the sequel Postscript and I’m intrigued! I’ve seen a review on Goodreads saying it was better than P.S. I Love You so I will probably give it a shot!
Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry. Childhood sweethearts, they could finish each others sentences. No one could imagine them without each other.
When Gerry dies, Holly is devastated. But Gerry has left her a bundle of notes, one for each month of her year, each signed PS, I love you.
As the notes are opened, the man who knows Holly better than anyone teaches her that life goes on. With some help from friends and family, Holly laughs, cries and finds that life is for living - but it helps if there's an angel watching over you.

#sponsored | BOOK REVIEW! 📚
A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill
Noah Turner has a secret he has held close since he was a young boy. He sees monsters and has befriended one for many years. Noah’s father saw them as well. He went on to build an entire immersive horror experience called The Wandering Dark as an homage to the monsters he saw. The themes within this exhibition have in equal measure brought the Turner family wealth and happiness while also tearing them apart.
This is the story of an outside force impacting the fate of a family. At the center of this tale is Noah and his monster and how their relationship affects the rest of the Turner family.
MINI REVIEW: A Cosmology of Monsters is part horror, part speculative fiction, and part fantasy. It is also a story of family interaction and how everything we do impacts those around us. I’ve kept the synopsis vague because I feel that it’s a story that needs to be experienced without too many hints to what may happen. At the core of this book is Noah Turner, who is telling us the story of his family. While the narrative comes from Noah, this is very much a story of the entire Turner family.
A Cosmology of Monsters is not a book that I would place in any one single genre. There is an overarching element of horror to the story, which seems obvious when you know you’re walking into a book about monsters. The horror is not straightforward in the sense that you’re reading a book of jump scares. What Hamill gives the reader is much deeper with side of mild gore in some parts of the book. I recommend this story to anyone open to trying something a bit outside of the norm. This is a wonderful, weird, and visceral story that belongs on any TBR!

ME TALK PRETTY ONE DAY by David Sedaris in its natural habitat - Paris!
This book has made me think a lot about the nature of house and home. Despite all his struggles - with drugs, with money, with identity - David doesn’t ever describe himself as homeless. Even when he gets kicked out of his parents’ house, he goes to live with his sister. I’m sure there were times when he crashed with friends or couldn’t pay rent, but that doesn’t seem to be a part of his formative experience; at least not the part he writes about. When he does write about a home, it’s usually Hugh’s, the cottage in the French countryside, more than any place he, David, chose to live. That, and the artist’s living room furniture made out of hair (!). As someone who has often been without a permanent dwelling to call my own, it made me think back to my own experiences. What’s the difference between houseless and homeless? At what point do you start calling someone else’s house “home?” I’ve lived in multiple states and countries. I’ve lived in houses and apartments. I once lived in an apartment within a mansion, a converted school bus in the garden of a hostel, in a friend’s attic, and in a tiny house on a farm next to a river. I’ve purchased cars knowing I could live in them if I needed to, and I’ve couchsurfed and hosted couch surfers. Right now, I live in a duplex, which sounds strange to me, as that’s a very suburban, middle class-sounding statement, and though my other half and fur children are there, it only mimics home to me because it’s also missing elements that I’ve only discovered as an adult turn my right-now home into a possible forever home.
I hope David and Hugh has been able to turn what’s now THEIR French cottage and time in France into their forever home.
What has your experience with house and home and travel been like?

This book has to be my most read book till date.
my first ever encounter with Sylvia Plath was with her poem 'Daddy' - . // bit my pretty red heart in two.
I was ten when they buried you.
At twenty I tried to die
And get back, back, back to you.
I thought even the bones would do.
But they pulled me out of the sack,
And they stuck me together with glue. //
I couldn't understand at that time why I was able to connect with her, but some time later when I was in my own labyrinth I was able to comprehend the attachment I formed with her. In some really severe hopeless moments, I found solace in the words of the person who, like everyone around us, was thrown into the real world with a really brute force. But unlike everyone else, it took her, and to some extent, me, years to find a stable ground. When everyone around was growing with a pace that seemed unattainable to me, there I was - with Sylvia, stuck in a world where we were convinced that the only way to live was by being hard on ourselves. She taught me how to reflect on myself and my thoughts, and slowly I found myself getting out of the bell jar.
I don't know if I found her or if she found me, all I know is that we have always belonged together. They say that you're an amalgamation of all the books you read, but of all the authors I've ever read she's the one I feel the most myself with. .
she died when she was 30. She committed suicide by suffocating herself to death. She couldn't find her own ability to stand up, but she helped me find mine.
"'Comme je vous comprends, dit Goethe. Ce sont précisément ces détails-là, une toilette mal choisie, un léger défaut de la denture, une exquise médiocrité d'âme, qui font qu'une femme est vivante et vraie. Les femmes des affiches ou des magazines de mode, que presque toutes les femmes essaient aujourd'hui d'imiter, manquent de charme, parce qu'elles sont irréelles, parce qu'elles ne sont qu'une somme d'instructions abstraites. Elles sont nées d'une machine cybernétique, et non pas d'un corps humain! Mon ami, je vous le garantis, votre provinciale est bien la femme qu'il faut à un poète et je vous en félicite!"
L'étudiant reprit le livre et rougit de fierté. Ce que Goethe avait écrit à une inconnue était beau et triste, nostalgique et sensuel, sage et enjoué, et l'étudiant était certain que jamais encore d'aussi belles paroles n'avaient été adressées à une femme. Il songe à Christine et la désire infiniment. Sur ses vêtements ridicules, la poésie a jeté un manteau tissé des mots les plus sublimes. Elle en a fait une reine." Kundera, le livre du rire et de l'oubli, folio, p.228-229
4/5 🌟 for Lady in the Lake by Laura Lippman
In 1966, Baltimore is a city of secrets that everyone seems to know—everyone, that is, except Madeline “Maddie” Schwartz. Last year, she was a happy, even pampered housewife. This year, she’s bolted from her marriage of almost twenty years, determined to make good on her youthful ambitions to live a passionate, meaningful life.
Maddie wants to matter, to leave her mark on a swiftly changing world. Drawing on her own secrets, she helps Baltimore police find a murdered girl—assistance that leads to a job at the city’s afternoon newspaper, the Star. Working at the newspaper offers Maddie the opportunity to make her name, and she has found just the story to do it: a missing woman whose body was discovered in the fountain of a city park lake.
Cleo Sherwood was a young black woman who liked to have a good time. No one seems to know or care why she was killed except Maddie—and the dead woman herself. Maddie’s going to find the truth about Cleo’s life and death. Cleo’s ghost, privy to Maddie’s poking and prying, wants to be left alone.
I LOVED this novel. It’s such an interesting story told in such an interesting way. The story is more of a slow burn but the writing style keeps you glued to the page for sure.
This story is told through multiple POVs. Mostly Maddie’s and Cleo’s, our victim. Then the rest are chapters told from the POV of a random character from the chapter before. Some people may not like this but I liked it. It was really unique and interesting way to tell the story.
While the main characters are ridiculously flawed and selfish I still found them likable in a way. Just a couple of women trying to leave a mark.
I also loved the ending, I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll just leave it at that.
One of the best things that has happened to me over the past year has been the stream of buddy reads that I’ve done with a few close friends. At least some segment of our now-five-person group always has one going, and we keep pace with each other and text throughout the whole book. We live in different places, so it’s been an amazing way to stay close and stay in touch between visits. As soon as we finish one, everyone asks, “What’s next???” ❤️ @ijs992@alicallamack@daniellepalecek#instagramlessBrent
Right now we’re reading Furyborn, which is a re-read for me but one I definitely needed in order to read the sequel that came out earlier this year.
Do you do any IRL buddy reads?

Helló ősz, helló sötétebb feed! Vagy legalábbis remélem, hogy a könyvekkel is működni fog.
De ha már ősz, tudtok nekem ajánlani helyeket, ahol lehet őszi dekorációt kapni? Mert karácsonyi szinte mindenhol van, de szeretnék venni az aktuális szezonhoz passzolót is a fotókhoz 😂
Én még mindig kávéfüggök, macskázok, próbálom utolérni magam fejben, a hétvégi semmittevés is erről szólt. Szétszórt és motiválatlan vagyok, összezavarodott ettől az egésztől, és nem tudom, hogy hogy húzzam ki magam belőle. Eddig a barátaimmal beszélgettem online és offline, de lassan ideje lesz valami könyvet választani, ami eltereli a figyelmem, de nem sok érzelem van benne, mert azt most nem tudnám elviselni. Káosz, tudom. Ez egy ilyen időszak, a másik profilomon ( @gyorgytekla) próbálgatom, hogy a kreatív energiáim felélesszem, talán itt is mernem kellene elrugaszkodni a jól megszokottól. Az új színek talán erre lesznek jók, próbálgatni az újdonságot.

Hey, dragilor! Ce mai faceti? Ce mai cititi? ❤📖
Va doresc o saptamana cat mai frumoasa si spor la scoala! ❤😘
💎Day 17 din #kingdomofphoto : "Guilty Pleasure" 💙😏😅
Nu am cuvinte cat de mult imi place cartea asta! Roth este pur si simpu: gdjsjgssghshs!!😂 @practice.with.books sunt sigura ca ma intelege.😅❤
Abia astept sa apara si volumul 2, dar cred la cat de nebuna sunt, ca o sa imi iau celelalte volume pe engleza. Sunt sigura ca daca o sa mi le iau pe engleza o sa stau cu telefonul langa mine nonstop ca sa caut traducerea. 😅 Nu pot sa spun ca ma descurc foarte bine la engleza, pot sa spun ca sunt mediocra, dar tot vreau celelate volume cat mai repede!!😋
Imi cer scuze de descrierile mele foarte lungi, dar eu vorbesc mult, asa ca imi pare rau!🙏❤😅
Q: Care este placerea voastra nevinovata? A mea cred sunt dulciurile.❤😅🍪🎂🍬🍭🍩🍫🍨🍦
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 If I could give more stars I would!
Hands down one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It was SO descriptive, I felt like I knew all of these people. I honestly didn’t believe this was fiction. The author took so much time and effort into making every single scene believable and authentic.
Please go listen to it on audio. It makes it feel SO real! Each character has its own narrator and each narrator really gives a feel to exactly who their character really was. It sounds exactly like a documentary/interview would sound! I could not stop listening to this book and didn’t want it to end!!
QOTD: What’s the most recent book you either listened to or read that blew you away?
Have a great Tuesday everyone 😄

I ran from him, even though my heart knew better.
Love was one thing, but survival another.
He chose a life of crime. I never wanted any of it; I only wanted him. I left when the danger bled into my life, taking more than I was willing to sacrifice.
I should have known he'd come for me. Men like him always get what they want.
The temptation in his eyes, the heat of his touch . . . it's all still there, but his gaze is harsher now and his grasp unrelenting.
He's not the boy I fell in love with, although pieces of what we once had are still there. I can feel it.
I know what he wants from me, and I know it comes with a steep price. I'll pay it though, if for no other reason than to touch him again. Just once more.
I'll close my eyes and forget about the risks that come with this life and with him. I only hope he doesn't do the same.
Desperate to Touch is book 2 in a series. Hard to Love must be read first. Start reading Hard to Love today!

"Щоб зрозуміти світ, іноді треба зосередити увагу на його невеличкій часточці, дуже пильно придивлятися до того, що поряд із тобою, й уявляти собі, що це і є всім.
Я відчував себе поглинутим і стертим неозорістю – і не лише передбачуваною неозорістю часу й простору, а й невблаганною відстанню між людьми, яка існує навіть тоді, коли вони перебувають на відстані простягненої руки одне від одного, і голова у мене йшла обертом, коли я думав про всі ті місця, де був, і ті місця, де не був, про втрачений, широкий і незнаний світ, про брудний лабіринт міст і вулиць, про розвіяний попіл і ворожу неозорість, про втрачені зв’язки й загублені речі, що вже ніколи не знайдуться, і мою картину затягло в цей могутній потік, і вона летить невідомо куди: крихітна іскорка духу, іскорка, що стрибає на хвилях темного моря."

Question: what type of stories you like to read or movies you love to watch? 😊
Here,s something @shumaylamunyr taught me ,invest more in books and read more and she forcefully made me read and thats how i developed my interest for reading..
I will forver be thankful to you angel ❤❤❤
Its been long since i got back to reading routine and i kinda miss that so i am back on track with this one i left halfway ( i have almost forgotten the background of it 😂) Anyhow i have picked it up from where i left and i am enjoying it.
Its not a teenage or newly found romantic story (Thank God) its based on after marriage realistic events which mean its a bit closer to reality and complication which i really like , i am not a love at first sight and happy events and happy endings kinda reader 😂 ( weird, right? )
I am a bit realistic.
Anyhow i am simply enjoying the plot going smoothly and on perfect timing about shauna and her best friends and marriage..
If you are into simple life stories you would love this..
Its a plain story no big turns and twists..
No major events except a few...
Im on chapter 20 and will be finishing it soon...

«Posso sapere cosa ci fate qui?» si decise a chiedergli, esasperata.
«Davvero non lo indovinate?» Mio dio! Quando le rivolgeva quell’espressione da canaglia, non sapeva dire se avrebbe voluto cancellare il suo sorriso sornione a forza di sberle o a furia di baci. Lady Charlotte Ashcroft non ha mai avuto alcuna intenzione di sposarsi. Tuttavia la strada della giovane s’incrocia con quella di Thomas Francis Stuart, Duca d’Arcy, irriverente libertino sull’orlo della bancarotta a causa del gioco e delle donne, vizi ai quali è notoriamente dedito. Quale migliore occasione per quest'ultimo, per risanare le proprie finanze e garantire un erede alla casata, se non quella di sposare l'esuberante e attraente Baronessina ?
L’antipatia di Charlotte verso Thomas è intensa e istintiva, quasi quanto l’attrazione che suo malgrado prova nei confronti del Duca. Un corteggiamento serrato, sfrontato, appassionato… ma Charlotte non è certo il tipo da lasciarsi intrappolare anche se, si sa, l’amore può nascondersi ovunque. A volte anche sotto le apparenze di un mero matrimonio d’interesse. Dopo averci deliziato con le splendide atmosfere, fortemente Austeniane, del suo primo regency Matrimonio d’Onore, un successo incredibile di critica e di pubblico, in questo spin-off Marilena cambia leggermente registro. Lo fa con maestria e ci regala un nuovo storico sempre ricalcante l’ambientazione e il mood del precedente, questa volta con una vena piccante e ironica in più. Nemmeno troppo velata. Stiamo a vedere se vi piacerà anche questo!

Outline by Rachel Cusk
“A woman writer goes to Athens in the height of summer to teach a writing course. Though her own circumstances remain indistinct, she becomes the audience to a chain of narratives, as the people she meets tell her one after another the stories of their lives.
Outline is a novel about writing and talking, about self-effacement and self-expression, about the desire to create and the human art of self-portraiture in which that desire finds its universal form.”

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Series: Six of Crows #1
Genres: young adult, fantasy
I feel extremely relieved because I finally finished Six of Crows.
It took me quite some time but I didn't give up on it just to move on to Crooked Kingdom and King of Scars. ( I'm too fond of The Grishaworld. )
Six of Crows follows a gang of criminals in the fictional city of Ketterdam in Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, as they embark on an impossible heist that it could save the world as they know it and make them wealthier than they could ever imagine, but it could also end with them dead.
Even though I struggled a little with the first chapters, I won't deny that it has a solid plot, great action, impressive world building, and a well constructed heist that pays off fantastically, but it is the characters that really make this book stand out from the crowd.
Six of Crows left me desperate to read Crooked Kingdom, so I’ll be doing that as soon as I possibly can. I’m now completely obsessed with the Grishaverse, so I’d like to revisit Shadow and Bone too and the other books in the trilogy. "Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart."
