“She remembered Chiyo telling her that finding one's match was like finding one's other half. Mariko had never understood the notion. She was not a half.

"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: your mind transcends limitations, you consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be"- A monk who sold his Ferrari by robin Sharma English level: Medium #book #booktag #booktime #bookgeek #bookblog #bookstagram #bookclub #bookshelf #bookworm #bookquotes #bookquotes #booksofinstagram #booknerd #booklove #bookaholic #bookphotography #booklover #bookblogger #read #reading #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotesdaily #motivation #motivational #motivationalquote #motivationalquotes #motivated
Every sentence she spoke formed a melody, her voice like the musical notes of a snake charmer luring him from his basket. She stood apart from the mural of women who had graced him with their presence over the years. It was as if they formed a flat image while she alone was three dimensional.  #MattersOfConvenience #RoyLPickeringJr #AuthorOfInstagram #WritersOfIG #BlackAuthors #booklovers #bookworms #bibliophile #bookquotes  #diversebooks #bookishlove #writerlife  #indieauthor   #blackbookquotes Art by @eringopaint
Buonasera lettori, oggi volevo chiedervi cosa ne pensate del liceo classico. Io frequento il liceo classico e al momento della scelta ho sentito molti pareri contrastanti, chi diceva che ti aiutava per il futuro e ti apriva la mente e chi diceva che non serviva a niente, che è una scuola che al giorno d'oggi non ti permette sbocchi sul mondo del lavoro. Voi cosa ne pensate? Materie come greco e latino servono ancora? • • • #booklife #bookquotes #italy #girl #rome #turin #naples #milan #eleanoroliphant #tea #limontea #greentea #liceo #liceoclassico #latino #greco #linguemorte
She surrounded herself with #books at #work and at #home . Her living space was a testament to her first and abiding #love with shelves jammed with books tables crowded with them.

Just do your best — in any circumstance in your life. It doesn't matter if you are sick or tired, if you always do your best there is no way you can judge yourself. And if you don't judge yourself there is no way you are going to suffer from guilt, blame, and self-punishment. By always doing your best, you will break a big spell that you have been under."

•[She closed her eyes against his chest and listened to the beats of his heart. The best sound she’d ever heard. The best she’d ever felt. And also the worst. She had tasted something that could never be hers. Not without killing him. It was too much to bear.]• ⠀ ~Odinsbarn, Siri Pettersen. ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ What's your favorite underrated book/series? ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ Good evening everyone and happy Sunday! The book in this pic is the Italian edition of The Rot by Siri Pettersen, second book of the Raven Rings trilogy which I've already mentioned in some of my older posts but this series is so good that's impossible don't talk about it. I found this second novel amazing if not better than the first one with his union of human world and magical settings. The characters are amazing too and Rime, one of them, is seriously book boyfriend material! I really think that everyone should read this trilogy as soon as possible. ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ #bookph #bookpages #bookcover #fairylights #bookflowers #flowers #therot #ravenrings #siripettersen #booksoftheday #bookstagramitalia #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookreviewer #quotesoftheday #bookquotes #candles #bookscandles #unitedbookstagram #bookquestion #fantasy #literature #bookhoarder #darkfeed #booklife #booklover #bookpost #booknerd

Se c’è una cosa che amo particolarmente fare è spulciare le librerie altrui, scavando fra i tomi si possono scoprire tante cose. Nella libreria di mio nonno, che purtroppo non ho mai potuto conoscere, ho scovato questo gioiellino e in qualche modo mi sono sentita più vicina a lui. Forse lasciamo un pezzetto della nostra anima nei libri che leggiamo e amiamo, o forse i libri stessi si trasformano in una parte di noi; o più probabilmente entrambe le cose. ✨ #libro #libri #leggere #lettura #robinsocrusoe #danieldefoe #bookstagram #booklove #booklover #bookworm #bookquotes #bookblogger #instaread #instareading #read #reading #bookshelf #instabook #instabooks #paint #painting #oldbook #oldbooks #oldbooksmell #romanzo #romanzi #bookphotography #bookpic #bookish

(Unbezahlte Werbung) Hier zeige ich euch mein CR💝 Ich hatte mal wieder richtig Lust auf eine neue Dystopie und dachte mir, „Pretty, special, ugly“ wäre genau das richtige. 😊 Die Thematik, welche die Oberflächlichkeit und den steigenden Schönheitswahn bemängelt, spricht mich total an. Zurzeit bin ich bei Seite 120, aber durch Schulstress und dem ständigen suchten von „Game of Thrones“ komm ich kaum voran 😩 Kurzbeschreibung: Tally kann ihren 16. Geburtstag kaum erwarten - denn mit 16 wird sie endlich hübsch! Sie bekommt dann die übliche Schönheitsoperation, die physische Unterschiede und Makel ausgleicht und somit allen die gleiche Chance gibt. Statt einer langweiligen "Ugly" wird Tally eine glückliche "Pretty" sein und im schönen Teil der Stadt leben. Doch vor ihrer Umwandlung zweifelt sie, ob sie wirklich das bequeme, vorbestimmte Leben einer Pretty führen möchte ... #book #bookstagram #bookish #bookquotes #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #bookphotographie #bücherblog #bücher #buch #currentlyreading #bestseller #bücherqueen #bookreview #booksofinstagram #lesen #fallvibes #germanbookstagram #ilovebooks #jugendbuch #dystopia #dystopie #beauty #plasticsurgery #scottwesterfield

„It’s not that simple. ... It can be. If you let it.“ 🌺🌺🌺 Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend?! It’s already Sunday evening here in Germany and I’m currently sitting on the sofa and I’m watching some TV...😉 What are you doing right now? 🌺🌺🌺 Today’s post is about „Only the Perfect“ by @ellethorpebooks 📚. It was my first book by Elle Thorpe and I finished reading it about a week ago. The blurb sounds really interesting, the characters are sweet, especially Jamison is very lovable. I had lots of fun with this story, but somehow it was just not THE story for me. Some final spark was missing, I can’t really point out why exactly, sometimes you can’t explain. Anyway, it was a pleasure to be one the ARC team 😃 🌺🌺🌺 #bookquotes #bibliophile #bookstagram #arc #rezensionsexemplar #unbezahltewerbung

I love this quote, because I really believe a book is a gift that keeps on giving! Books are especially great gifts for kids. While many adults already have specific tastes in books, kids are typically open to any book that will make them smile, make them laugh and make them think. Give the gift of books to children on your holiday shopping this year and you’ll give them the gift of stronger lifelong learning! What’s better than that?!⠀ _⠀ You can shop for all my books - dedicated to addressing the universal themes and challenges we all deal with - on my website:Shop now via the link in my profile.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #shoplocal #smallbiz #smallbusinesssaturday #smallbizsaturday #shopsmall #holidayshopping #givebooks #bookgifts #giftsforbooklovers #giftsforbookworms #giftsforkids #booksforkids #kidsbooks #NHwriter #NHauthor #NewEnglandauthor #childrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #storytime #readaloud #readtome #kidlit #childrenslit #kidlitpicks #bestkidsbooks #giftgiving #giftoflearning #bookquotes #quotesaboutbooks #quoteoftheday

There are a number of reasons why this quote is relevant today, and tomorrow there will be even more examples, whether that means another shooting at a yoga studio, or a rapist gets off because of his victim’s clothing, or a rapist gets off because he’s young and the judge doesn’t want ruin his life, or, or, or, or..... 🎧 But I thought to share it because it was fresh in my mind because of a podcast I’ve been listening to, ‘Happy Face’ which mentions this quote specifically in Episode 8. It’s produced by the daughter of the Happy Face Killer, Keith Jesperson, who raped and murdered eight women, and only turned himself in because two other people had been convicted of his crimes. He wanted the credit. While in prison Jesperson did interviews and spoke calmly and thoroughly about his victims, about how it was ultimately their fault he killed them. If only she hadn’t spoken that way about men, if only she hadn’t provoked him, if only she hadn’t made him do it. If only she hadn’t laughed.

Tre ore di fila in totale, in piedi, al freddo. Tante persone conosciute, in un clima eclettico e stimolante. L'attesa, la trepidazione, gli sguardi incuriositi dei passanti che si chiedevano il perché di tanta gente in coda. L'occhio che cade sui libroni pesantissimi in mano e il lampo di riconoscimento: "Oddio, ma davvero c'è McCurry dentro? Proprio lui?". Sì, proprio lui. Una vita per immagini, una vita in giro per il mondo, lui che il mondo ce l'ha offerto tramite i suoi scatti che catturano l'anima dei posti e delle persone.

“‘Look. I told you not to worry about the neighbours. But watch out for the cops. They’re murder.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the most terrible, most mysterious things about life is that a warning can be heeded only in retrospect: too late.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin. 4.5/5 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I just finished reading my first ever James Baldwin and I fell totally in love with his writing style. The story is so gut-wrenching and full of raw emotion. It tells the story of a young couple. Fonny, the male protagonist, has been falsely accused of a crime. His fiancée, Tish, and their families work tirelessly trying to clear his name. The story explicates the hardships and racial injustices many minorities experience, both in the past and in present-day America. Although the novel may fall under the category of fiction, experiences like this are often nothing further than the truth for many POC living in America. The beauty of literature is that it can fully immerse you in the world of a novel and allow you to understand experiences outside of your own. I hope that the many readers who will come across this tale will end this book with more socially aware eyes, and use their privilege to make a difference where it counts.⠀⠀

""As long as we agree to be your monsters," she countered. "Monsters? No. I want you to be something far more dangerous." Somehow, in the space of a heartbeat, he was by her side, so close that she could feel the crackling energy in his body, not so tightly coiled now." - Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies . . Grim Lovelies by @meganshepherdauthor ✅ I was looking forward for the book only subscription by @shelflovecrate to arrive, since I heard about it. Can't really say why, but I'm emotionally attached to this book - when I see it, it makes me instantly happy. I love the design and also like the story so far - the big finale is a bit billow out for me, but I adore the character building. My dear Cricket - and Petra, the queer community addition. 🤗 Also there are a lot described, where I just have to laugh - because "mummy issues" or goblin parties. . 📚 Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime. Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose the only lives they’ve ever known…but if they succeed, they could be more powerful than anyone ever bargained for. . . #grimlovelies #slcmischief - Grim Lovelies with bookish pets #bookstagram #bookquotes #bookworm #books #book #bookishlove #booklove #bookish #bookreview

“She walked with measured steps, draped in striped and fringed cloths, treading the earth proudly, with a slight jingle and flash of barbarous ornaments. She carried her head high; her hair was done in the shape of a helmet; she had brass leggings to the knee, brass wire gauntlets to the elbow, a crimson spot on her tawny cheek, innumerable necklaces of glass beads on her neck; bizarre things, charms, gifts of witch-men, that hung about her, glittered and trembled at every step. She must have had the value of several elephant tusks upon her. She was savage and superb, wild-eyed and magnificent; there was something ominous and stately in her deliberate progress. And in the hush that had fallen suddenly upon the whole sorrowful land, the immense wilderness, the colossal body of the pensive, as though it had been looking at the image of its own tenebrous and passionate soul.” -I love Africa. I think after spending 12 years there and visiting five African countries I can safely say that the beauty there is the rarest and most exotic I’ve ever witnessed. This picture was taken at a rural farm in Namibia. Where a kudu occasionally roamed through, my best friend and even had a small incident where the kudu almost came into our room.😅 From the lush mountains and cobalt seas of South Africa to the moon like landscape of Namibia to the sweltering tropical heat of Zambia, it is all raw and simply begging to be used in a Story. I am aware that there are a few works of African fiction such as Nnedi Okorafor’s novels and then there’s Tomi Adeyemi debut ‘Children Blood of Bone’,which I have some very strong opinions about... But the landscape and people have such artistic literary potential I’d hate for it to be swept aside for more main stream content, -what cultures/ landscapes would you love to see represented more?
