I thought I’d post a shelfie today🌈 I have to say, I’ve really fallen in love with my rainbow-organized shelves. I didn’t think I’d keep them this long (I’ve had them like this since June) because of my ocd, but it’s just so aesthetically pleasing and now I don’t know if I’ll go back😆

📚Tell me what you’re doing this Sunday! How are you relaxing?

Also reading this! Yes, I know, I’m crazy to read more than one book a week but I like to alternate. I have my daytime read and my nighttime read incase you’re wondering 😊

Weekends are devoted to physical copies and when I’m cooking, working out, or at my day job, it’s audiobook time.

Q: do you have a reading pattern? Or am I just crazy?

I picked a book at random from my library’s database and since they don’t have the preview image on the website, I have to wait until it arrives to see what it looks like. I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t a flaming Darth Vader drifting past the lovechild of Mitt Romney and Pierce Brosnan.

“First published in German in 1940 and widely recognized as a classic of philosophical anthropology, Laughing and Crying is a detailed investigation of these two particularly significant types of expressive behavior, both in themselves and in relation to human nature. Elaborating the philosophical account of human life he developed in Levels of Organic Life and the Human: An Introduction to Philosophical Anthropology, Plessner suggests that laughing and crying are expressions of a crisis brought about in certain situations by the relation of a person to their body.

With a new foreword by J. M. Bernstein that situates the book within the broader framework of Plessner’s philosophical anthropology and his richly suggestive and powerful account of human bodily life, Laughing and Crying is essential reading for anyone interested in the philosophy of the body, emotions, and human behavior.”

review:
Un libro basato su ricerche estensive, che mostra il valore della collaborazione in azienda. Lo fa al di là dell’idea più semplicistica che “collaborare fa bene”, analizzando quali siano i giusti livelli di collaborazione e quali invece possano essere controproducenti. Introduce il concetto di leadership collaborativa, identificando gli aspetti comportamentali che possono causare problemi. E investiga il concetto di network come modalità di collaborazione. Davvero un ottimo libro, molto attuale anche grazie alle recenti scoperte in ambito di network analytics.

(source : https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/sep/20/making-a-demon-of-jk-rowling-is-a-wretched-sport-born-of-misogyny-and-resentment)

HMMMMMMM


It’s kinda weird how all this misogyny and resentment didn’t come about until after she exposed herself as being transphobic…

It’s almost as if the hate for her isn’t because of misogyny but because she’s an absolute f***** ****…

and no doubt I’ll get a bunch of J.K lovers in the comments saying “oh she didn’t even say..” or “she’s not transphobic because…”

FACT : J.K Rowling IS transphobic. There is nothing at all you can say to change this. Water is wet. The sun is hot. J.K is a transphobe.

Should she be cancelled? Absofuckinglutely.

If people in positions of power and influence use their fame to spread hate and negativity and to cause harm to communities of people around the world, then they don’t deserve to have said power and influence.

If you don’t cancel someone when they abuse their privilege you are letting them and everyone else know that the behavior is acceptable.

Transphobia isn’t acceptable.

Cancel J.K Rowling.

There are so many more female fantasy authors that are worth your time than her. So this will be my last post on the matter. Let’s boost the authors that actually deserve our time and attention instead, and let J.K fall away into obscurity.

WAGS (book 2): Stay by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch–an anonymous virtual assistant service–is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting…until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth–that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

My Review: 5/5 Stars

So glad Matt got his own story and happily ever after! Poor guy has been through a lot in the last few books and totally deserved his own happy ending. When Matt isn’t in the rink playing hockey is is dealing with the aftermath of his divorce and the issues is ex is causing that is keeping him from seeing his kids. Nothing is easy and he just wants something that makes him feel less insane. Hailey runs a company that is basically a delivery service for anyone and at any time. You need something? They’ll find it for you. Hailey has had a suspicion that one anonymous client is none other than Matt Eriksson, the hockey star for Toronto. And when a request comes in from Matt that she needs to do personally it gives them a chance to cross paths in real life rather than just the exchange of messages. They are great for one another. Both dealing with divorce and how that killed their confidences, they learn together what it means to date again and fall in love with someone who will appreciate you. Loved this story! Both are such great characters and of course there are a ton of cameos from our favorite characters from this world/series.
