Hej, hej kochani. 🤗 "Strach jest dobry - podkreślił Jan Ko. - Dzięki niemu jesteśmy ludźmi myślącymi. Tylko idiota się nie boi. Jeśli czujecie strach, to dobrze. Będzie waszym sprzymierzeńcem." "Nowy świat" to pozycja dla fanów literatury postapo. @jacakbdg coś dla ciebie. 😁 I zdecydowanie coś dla mnie. Lubię takie klimaty i bardzo dobrze czyta mi się takie historie. Fabuła stworzona przez autorkę jest ciekawa i pozwala puścić wodze fantazji. Podobało mi się, aczkolwiek mam jedno małe zastrzeżenie. Brakowało tutaj opisów miejsc tego świata po apokalipsie. W takich książkach to jest bardzo ważny element. Dzięki temu możemy sobie wyobrazić jak wyglądał, a raczej co zostało z takiego świata. Co prawda były wzmianki, ale to dla mnie troszkę za mało. Co do samej historii nie mam więcej zastrzeżeń. Ani chwili się nie nudziłam, było ciekawie i czytało się szybko. Bohaterowie od razu wzbudzili we mnie sympatię. To trójka młodych ludzi, którzy próbują polepszyć swoje życie i starają się przetrwać te ciężkie dni. Nutka tajemniczości jaka ich okrywa sprawia, że z ogromną przyjemnością czytało się o ich losach. Dla mnie to taka fajna, lekka książka. 😁🤗 Czytaliście? Lubicie książki postapo? Ja uwielbiam, to zdecydowanie czadowy klimat. 😁 Dajcie znać a tymczasem miłego dnia. 🥰🤗 #nowyswiat#ałbenagrabowska#wydawnictwojaguar#kochamczytać#postapocalyptic#readinglover#readingisfun#bookaddicted#postapo#vscocam#vscbooks#zmniejszamstoshanby2019#mybook#love#bookpost#pilishgirl#bookgirl#everyday#readeveryday#alwaysreading#ksiazkimojamilosc#apokalipsa Etap VIII #czytelniczeigrzyska2019#taniaksiazkapl
There are so many aspects to the final "battle" in the Harry Potter series that just make is one of my favorites. I won't spoil it because I know a bunch of you are reading the series for the first time next month with various bookclubs, but it just goes to show how phenomenal JK Rowling is ❤ * #qotd : What book or series has one of the best final battles? * How stunning is this Hogwarts House stained glass sleeve? I've been OBSESSED with this print and of course HAD to buy it the moment @createdbyraemn listed one because her sleeves are honestly the best quality. Ever. Don't believe me? Buy one yourself and use my code ENCHANTRESS10 to make your purchase even cheaper! * * * * #berryenchantedaug19 - Godslayer: hero * #wildadventuresaug19 - snake on the cover * #bookishsummercourtaug19 - high tide: best final battle

I was generously given a free sample of the monthly book Ellie + Ott (In exchange for an honest review). 🤰🏼🤱 This is a book series for new parents. There is a gift set for each month of the baby’s life starting from month one through month twelve (so far—it looks like they are adding more over time). I’ve recently announced to the world that my husband and I are expecting our first child in February. So it was super exciting to get my first review copy of a picture book by @ellieandott. If you are interested in getting your own set, you can use the code E+O10 to get 10% your order. Click the link in my bio to see the full review!
New Review - Bark of Night by David Rosenfelt, the audiobook narrated by Grover Gardner, borrowed from my local library. Witty, snarky, sarcastic and an absolute hoot. Book 19 of Andy Carpenter series. Too good to miss! See my full review of this remarkable audiobook at https://rosepointpublishing.com or follow the link in my profile. (8/18/19)
I know I'm doubling up on poetry posts, but I never had any illusions that I would be able to read AND post about exactly one poetry book per day. I'm actually pretty proud of myself for never getting more than a day behind. Anyway, Fragments from the Biography of Nemesis by Lois Marie Harrod had me thinking about how art often begets art. You could argue that all art is a response to something: people, places, events, other art. The majority of Harrod's poems in this collection note a place, a date, or the words of another writer. These are responses to something that calls to her, a need to relay or echo. I'm not sure how much this book is explicitly about the Nemesis from mythology. She's most famous for causing Narcissus to see his reflection in the water and die from love of himself as revenge for him spurning Echo. I may be reading into things a bit too much, but it seems to me that Echo and Narcissus aren't so different. Both were obsessed with beauty to a fault, and so are artists, they're just better at seeing beauty beneath the surface. Art is caught in the call and response or echo between reality and representation. Part of the artist's curse is never being able to fully recreate what they see whether it's right in front of them or in their mind. Maybe this is their own punishment from Nemesis. Favorite poem: "Love as Snow." Favorite line from "How to Write That Poem That Was Translated from the Bulgarian": Think about yourself instead:/Who will you be/in the sunlight? #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booksofig#thesealeychallenge#amreading#poetrybook#bookofpoetry#womenwriters#womenauthors #readwomenwriters#readwomenpoets #womenpoets#readdiversebooks#currentlyreading#readpoetry#reading#bibliophile#summerreading#readingchallenge#instareads#bookpost#ilovetoread#readingaddict#31poetrybooksin31days#girlswhoread#womenwhoread#poetrypost#bookaesthetic
Are there characters from literature or figures from history whose story you think could be expanded on? There are certainly women in the Bible who don't get a fair shake, and Gomer, the wife of the prophet Hosea, is one of them. Kwame Dawes's book, Gomer's Song, is an imagining of Gomer's story. Note, it's not a REimagining because the actual story of her in Hosea gives almost no information besides that God commanded Hosea to marry a "harlot" as a representation of the Israelites' unfaithfulness to God. Hosea buys her back from her other lover(s) to show God's love in spite of sin. Dawes's poems attempt to give Gomer more of a voice, more autonomy over her body. But no one's body belongs to them in the Bible. You have free will, but you aren't acting through your own vessel. Women suffer from a double ownership: God's and men's. Perhaps Gomer is behaving from a sense of survival or maybe she is in love with someone who won't or can't marry her, but her motives are unimportant in the grand scheme. I appreciated that this book tries to give Gomer more control, but her body seems to be the most important thing about her. I didn't feel like I ultimately learned much about her other than her sex life. I also don't necessarily think the book is written the way it is just because a man wrote it. Men should be able to write from female perspectives, and many do it well. But in this case, Dawes has written about a woman who belongs to God, can only be legitimized by a husband, and now her story is through a male filter. I can't help but question the authenticity and wish that Gomer could speak for herself. Favorite poem: "On Me and Men." Favorite line from "Hinterland": and we looked/into the inscrutable dialogue of the night/and poured our stories out, softly, softly. #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booksofig#thesealeychallenge#amreading#poetrybook#bookofpoetry#writersofcolor#poetsofcolor#readwritersofcolor#readpoetsofcolor#readdiversebooks#currentlyreading
