5.28.20✨

May is Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, so I thought I’d feature some books with Asian/Pacific representation (whether they be main protagonists, side characters, or anyone in between). Now, I haven’t read Emergency Contact or Darius the Great is Not Okay yet, but I have read the other three in this picture, and I loved them all! Also, look at how cute Nicola and David Yoon’s books look next to each other😍

📚If you have any good recommendations that feature Asian/Pacific American representation, please send them my way! I’m always looking to expand my horizons and learn and read more diverse books😊

Found a couple of day-pictures from waaay back before I was blogging: sometimes I would take a picture of everything I read or collected during a day in town. Featured here are two beautiful days in autumn 2018 with Lyra’s Oxford by Philip Pullman, Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, Oxford music magazines and various local knick-knacks

finally finished this series and Oh My Gosh i’m so excited 

the last book was amazing—i was a little sad because *spoiler* we didnt hear from jonah’s perspective at all, but i still loved it, and i understand why haddix made that call (and the second-to-last book gave good closure with jonah in terms of character development)

putting this into the tbrbuster tag despite this being a new book because I wouldn’t have finished the series if it weren’t for this challenge! I started out the year with a reread of the books + reading the book of the series I’d bought and never read, and now I’m finishing them up 😊

Hola,

Ich hab mir heute mal wieder etwas überlegt.

@kat.loves.books_ hatte letztens gefragt ob wir schon mal ein Buch abgebrochen haben.

Na? Habt Ihr?

📚

Als Kind habe ich ständig Bücher abgebrochen bzw. aus Faulheit einfach nicht mehr weitergelesen.

Die einzigen Reihen, die mich wirklich interessiert haben, waren “Das magische Baumhaus” und “Beastquest”.

📚

Mittlerweile kann ich es nicht mehr wirklich mit meinem Gewissen vereinbaren ein Buch nicht fertig zu lesen.

📚

Die beiden Bücher, die Ihr da oben seht gehören zu den wenigen Exemplaren, welche ich abgebrochen habe.

📚

Wie gestern schon geäußert, fand ich den Verlauf der “House of Night”-Reihe alles andere als bezaubernd und habe den 3. Band “Erwählt” daher nicht fertig gelesen.

Bei Tom Clancys “Jagd auf Roter Oktober” war es weniger das Was sondern eher das Wie.

Seid geraumer Zeit bin ich ein Fan von Geschichte. Vorallem Die Zeit des 20. Jahrhunderts in Europa, speziell die deutsche Geschichte, hat es mir angetan, denn das letzte und das Ende des vorletzten Jahrhunderts sind meiner Meinung nach sehr interessant, wenn auch dunkel.

Anyway, um mal zum Thema zurück zu kommen.

Jeder, der ein Buch von Tom Clancy gelesen hat weiß, dass seine Bücher sehr Anspruchsvoll sind. Er benutzt viele Fachbegriffe und Abkürzungen.

Das hat mein 16 jähriges Ich extrem abgeschreckt.

Wiederum möchte ich den Film nicht gucken ohne das Buch gelesen zu haben.

Also werde ich es zwangsläufig irgendwann nochmal lesen😅

“I see your fear, and it’s big. I also see your courage, and it’s bigger. We can do hard things.”

.


“The truest, most beautiful life never promises to be an easy one. We need to let go of the lie that it’s supposed to be.” “What scares me more than feeling it all, is missing it all.”

.

This book! I’m glad I took my time and read Untamed by @glennondoyle slowly, because it is a book that requires a lot of quiet reflection at the end of most chapters. This book takes of the ways our brains are systematically trained to the negative in life, and contemplates what would our lives look like if we only let the positive and love have influence over who we are. This book addresses so many large topics such as motherhood, mental illness, addiction, Faith/religion, divorce, race, politics, and so much more. This book doesn’t shy away from the hard stuff, and the things we would rather not think about, but as Glennon writes in this book “we can do hard things.” I think the thing that I loved most about this book is how vulnerable and honest Glennon Doyle is about mistakes. She writes about how by bringing our faults and mistakes into the open where we can see them we can learn and grow from them, instead of internalizing them and then living based on fear and anger. This is definitely one of this books you keep and refer back to as needed, but also that book you want to give to all of your friends and say “read this!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In the quiet haven of Clearing, Oregon, four neighbors find their lives upended when they begin to see themselves in parallel realities. At first the visions are relatively benign, but they grow increasingly disturbing—and, in some cases, frightening. When a natural disaster threatens Clearing, it becomes obvious that the visions were not what they first seemed and that the town will never be the same.

If, Then by Kate Hope Day

“¡Despiadado creador! Me has dado sentimientos y pasiones, pero me has abandonado al desprecio y al asco de la humanidad.”

«Se llevó el vaso a los labios y lo apuró de un trago. Gritó, giró sobre sí mismo, dio un traspié, se agarró a la mesa y se mantuvo asido a ella, mirando con ojos inyectados en sangre, jadeante, con la boca abierta. Y mientras lo miraba me pareció que se efectuaba un cambio… como si se hinchase… La cara se puso súbitamente negra, parecía que las facciones se disolvían y alteraban… Y me incorporé de un salto y retrocedí hasta la pared, con el brazo levantado para escudarme de aquel prodigio, anonadado por el terror».

Edición ilustrada por Fernando Falcone.
