Comme vous le savez (ou peut être pas d'ailleurs), cet été je me suis fixée pour objectif de me replonger dans les classiques de la littérature française. Ainsi, je lisais alternativement un classique et un non classique.
Aujourd'hui, je vais vous parler de la pièce de théâtre rédigée par Victor Hugo : Ruy Blas. Ce drame romantique est composé de 5 actes et en vers.
Synopsis : Dans l'Espagne de la fin du XVIIe siècle, alors que la monarchie est en proie au complot, un laquais se voit chargé, en secret, d'usurper l'identité d'un grand seigneur, et de diriger le pays. Ce laquais, c'est Ruy Blas, amoureux de la reine qui ignore tout de ce travestissement... C'est le premier livre de Victor Hugo que je lis. J'ai déjà lu plusieurs extraits de ses œuvres ainsi que certains de ses poèmes mais jamais une œuvre intégrale. J'ai apprécié la plume de Victor Hugo et j'aimerais bien en lire d'autres désormais.
En tout cas, je vous conseille de le lire, il est relativement facile à lire et l'histoire n'est pas très longue. On retrouve bien la trace du romantisme dans cette pièce qui rappelle un peu celles d'Alfred de Musset. ~ Quels livres de Victor Hugo me conseillez-vous de lire? ~

My comfort zone right now, which links into @authorjennifergilmour
Positive Insta Challenge.. is surrounding myself with reminders of where I’m headed.
After not reading a novel for fifteen years whilst bringing up kids (no excuse) I rediscovered my love of reading last year and embarked on a little writing of my own - had gig noticed😆
Gifts from wonderful friends mean the world to me as I continue to learn the craft and this @stephenking
book was a treasure to read. In fact it could become my first ever re-read as I know I need to continue to follow his tips in here 👌🏼
My great friend @alittlebookproblem
loaned me this Cecelia Ahern as we both adore emotive reads and this, she assured me, I’ll not be disappointed with 🌸
My adorable reading buddy in bed is the little dog and I’m always wrapped in a fleece against the chill.

Even though I miss my chestnut praline lattes, I can't complain about having access to churro lattes. Nope. Can't complain at all 😋 What is your favorite flavored latte?⠀
Day 13: South Asia (I have 2 for this one)⠀
🗝️ The Devourers by Indra Das ⠀
Guys, on Amazon this book is marketed toward "readers of Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, China Mieville, and David Mitchell." UMM you had me at Margaret Atwood AND David Mitchell. But this is also a South Asian dark fantasy with elements of horror set in Kolkata, India? HOW MANY WAYS CAN I SAY YES TO THIS. ⠀
🗝️ The Pauper Prince and the Eucalyptus Jinn by Usman T. Malik⠀
This is a fantasy novella that follows a Pakastani professor in the States who is being haunted by stories of a princess and a Jinn his grandfather told him when he was a boy. I've been on a Tor.com originals kick ever since I read JY Yang's Tensorate series and this looks like a great one!!!⠀
Day 14: South America⠀
🗝️ Ghosts by Cesar Aira⠀
Originally published in Spanish, Ghosts is a novel written in the experimental and surrealist style of Argentinian author Cesar Aira. The events of the novel take place over the course of one day, New Year's Eve, when prospective owners of an apartment visit the construction site and encounter three ghosts. I need this book in my life! Also sounds like a perfectly weird and trippy Halloween read.⠀
Day 15: Central America⠀
🗝️Infomocracy by Malka Older⠀
This is a cyberpunk political thriller written by Daniel Jose Older's sister, Malka Older. She's also a humanitarian worker and a PhD Candidate in governance and disasters?? Here for all of her bad-assery. ⠀
Day 16: Carribean⠀
🗝️ Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord⠀
Mentioning this again because I still REALLY need to read it. It retells a series of Senegalese fairytales and as a fan of Karen Lord already, I'm SO here for this.⠀
In other words, my TBR has grown exponentially once again! GAHHH SO MANY BOOKS TO READ 🙈

What’s your favourite book by Virginia Woolf? I adore A Room of One’s Own, but The Years is my favourite. The edition pictured above was given to me by my Grandad, it was the same edition he kept with him at university and it has since sparked my love of Woolf’s work. ♥
Thank you, Austin! The FACE OFF Book Tour is officially over. I’m scheduling my 2019 events right now.

There will be two winners announced on October 28th!
I’ve grown accustom to the quaint life I’ve built for myself. Content with my nine to five and hanging with my closest girlfriends.
Then Caleb wanders back to our tiny beach town and brings up old memories I’ve suppressed for years. He was my first love, my first everything, and when he left me I swore I’d never love again.
Couldn’t love again.
Now he’s back, a completely different man than I knew before. Yet, every time I catch a glimpse of the boy I fell in love with, my heart beats a little faster.
Can I deal with his life of fame and all the madness that comes along with it? Can I forgive him for breaking my heart all those years ago?

How many times have we searched for our spectacles or bike keys for a long time and then actually find it at the place we started searching. We realise that it was right in front the whole time but somehow we failed to see it. Positivity is one such thing too. Life always gives us some explicit indications to make us feel positive but still we fail to see it.
Positivity is like an exquisite scenic view. But most of the time we blindfold ourselves with negativity. It's impossible to enjoy a scenic view with a blindfold. It's upto us to keep or remove the blindfold because at the end of the day we see things our mind wants to. If our mind is filled with copious negative thoughts, no matter how much positivity life gives you, you won't be able to enjoy it. You will be blindfolded. So start desiring for positivity and flood your mind with positive thoughts and you can easily throw the blindfold away.Remember, positivity is always right in front of you. - A.R_

✨Authors I love and books I adore and writing so good I’ve actually cried (more than once):✨
• Maggie Stiefvater: The Raven Cycle is my most favorite series EVER and All the Crooked Saints! The writing in that books! The storytelling! Ah! I can’t handle these books!
• V.E. Schwab: I can’t imagine the life I would have led (and read) had I never been introduced to V.E.Schwab’s books...Her magical worlds are incredible and original! I’m still dying over my absolute love for Vengeful!
• Laini Taylor: Okay, Laini is a new author love! I’ve only read Strange the Dreamer BUT DAMN DID THAT BOOK BRING HER INTO MY TOP FIVE FAV AUTHORS IMMEDIATELY! I’m starting Muse of Nightmares today, and I’m so so SO excited!
What authors and books have amazed you? 📖
I read P.S. I Still Love You in one sitting yesterday! And, surprisingly, I liked it more than To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before! I know, probably an unpopular opinion, but what can I say? I watched the movie before I read the book! (Sorry not sorry, even though I never do this) And once you see Movie Peter Kavinsky, you can never unsee his adorableness as anything less than perfect 💜
My second novel by Karen Rose and the best thing about her books are that you can pick up any randomly and read them! It’s not a series per se except that they have a similar genre - romantic suspense.
This book had the perfect amount of romance that can make you dream of a night out with your man while being on an adventure too. The dialogues between people were funny; it’s as if I’m watching a movie! 😄Slightly long I felt but the story had to cover about how rich people are not always nice just because of their largesse to the less privileged. The number of contacts they get through to hide and bury their ominous sins that involve cops, lawyers, martial arts fighters and the most common - dangers to the loved ones of these people to get their dirty work done.
Karen has kept the romance started right from the beginning & mystery alive till the end. It also taught me that one shouldn’t judge people because of what someone else has done wrong only because they are related to those bad people.
I’ll most certainly be giving her other books a regular read since there are so many of them! . . .

✨Have you picked up any spoopy books this month?
👻Ever since Tumblr made #Spoopy
a thing when I was in high school, I can no longer say spooky.
🏕️54 - The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay
📚I picked this book up as a part of my #8inBoo
readathon this weekend and could not put it down until well past my 8 hours were over. I couldn't stop myself from picking this up when I saw I was going to get queer representation in a horror novel. While I was not sure enough about the ending of this novel to give it 5 stars, it is one I plan to reread (and I hardly ever do that). I truly feel this is one I needed to read quickly for enjoyment and then go back later for the literary aspects of it. Definitely great psychological horror by way of The Strangers.

IT'S LIVE!!! The Librarian's Vampire Assistant, Book 2 it's here get it on your preferred platform today!🍾🍾🍾🍾 I think this book is possible more fucked up than the first, and I mean that in the best possible way. Poor Michael, first he's charged with finding 500 illegal newbie vampires and the first vampire to be in charge of two territories to top it all off he has to tell Miriam, the accidental prone librarian he is strangely fascinated with, the truth about what he is and *takes in a deep breath* that Mr. Nice the cliched looking the head of the Vampire Council expects him to turn her and for there to be a wedding between the two of them any day now. Unfortunately Michael has made little headway in to finding the missing vampires, it's as if they just vanished and he's trying to figure out a way to stall Mr. Nice about Miriam because he likes her the way she is, human, and he doesn't want to marry her he doesn't love her (the vampire doth protest too much). Just when Michael starts making headway on the missing vamps someone attempts to kidnap Miriam and kill Michael. As per usual with any Mimi books when the 💩 starts it hits the fan at full speed.
Overall, this book was hysterical! When I wasn't LMAO😂😂😂 I was holding my breath in anticipation of what would happen next😲. Mimi has seriously surpassed her own level of "Lets fuck with the characters and the readers". This is a first person POV through Michael's eyes it's a great narrative. The conflict is completely resolved in this book so it's technically not a cliffhanger but the last chapter is the giant ass of Mr. T. Zer. (It's a teaser!😲😲😲😲) But that's also good news you know why?? That means BOOK 3!!! 🙌🙌🙌❤😄😄 #bookreview #librariansvampireassistantbook2 #LVA2 @mimijeanpamfiloff #vampiremystery #notyourmamascozymystery #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #booklover #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookblog #bookworm #bookfun #bookish #bookstagrammer #books #bookthings #readersofinstagram #fortheloveofreading #fortheloveofbooks #iheartbooks #iheartreading
QOTD: Do you guys feel that Indian writers writing love stories should make an attempt to come up with fresh ideas- uninfluenced by Bollywood?
Well I finish this book today and I am gonna say that it was really disappointing.
This is the story of Abhimanyu- of his college days, of his friends and of the tactics he attempted to woo his lady love- Naina.
The story is a clichéd college romance, the characters are absolutely stereotyped- the guy is this self absorbed, arrogant fellow who disregards the girl's wishes and forces her to accept him nonetheless. Even the girl is this character who doesn't want a relationship yet doesn't want to let the guy go- basically friend zones the guy.
There is no character development, all of them seem equally shallow, the plot has Bollywood influence to it's greatest extent- the ending has been just written somehow, the narration is mechanical, there is problem in thought continuity and there are quite a few grammatical errors as well.
The only solace is the swift past- present transition, the episodic narration and the one-liners which reveal the anguish of unrequited love.
Over all there is a genuine attempt to mirror the real world- but I feel it has just resulted in generalizations and has not emotionally connected me to it at all.
Thus I would like to give it ⭐⭐/5.
Pick up this book only if you like love stories or are a die- hard Bollywood fan.

Monsters a novel by Sharon Dogar.
This is the incredible story of Mary Shelley- radical, rebellious and entranced. It is the story of a young woman who defies tradition and society and who draws upon the monstrous elements of her own life to create the most memorable monster of them all. Celebrating 200 years since the publication of Frankenstein, acclaimed writer Sharon Dogar bring to life the passion, tragedy and forbidden love of its teenage author.
How good does this sound, especially good timing for me as I am just reading Frankenstein for the first time too! Thankyou @andersenpress

Happy Book birthday to Little by Edward Carey!
Thank you @riverheadbooks
for gifting me this book. I can’t wait to read it, it’s gotten amazing reviews and it sounds so good!
The wry, macabre, unforgettable tale of an ambitious orphan in Revolutionary Paris, befriended by royalty and radicals, who transforms herself into the legendary Madame Tussaud.
In 1761, a tiny, odd-looking girl named Marie is born in a village in Switzerland. After the death of her parents, she is apprenticed to an eccentric wax sculptor and whisked off to the seamy streets of Paris, where they meet a domineering widow and her quiet, pale son. Together, they convert an abandoned monkey house into an exhibition hall for wax heads, and the spectacle becomes a sensation. As word of her artistic talent spreads, Marie is called to Versailles, where she tutors a princess and saves Marie Antoinette in childbirth. But outside the palace walls, Paris is roiling: The revolutionary mob is demanding heads, and . . . at the wax museum, heads are what they do.
Will you be adding this one to your reading list?
