La logica è tristemente sempre la stessa: quella di progettare a tavolino un nemico comune, oggi l'immigrato, uno spettro difficilmente identificabile sul quale scaricare tutte le responsabilità. Il nuovo, provocatorio, libro di Michela Murgia

I’m one with words. I’m also one with control.

As both these quotes suggest, the two don’t go together.

Surprisingly enough, it’s pretty reassuring. In all that I do, my actions will be right alongside my faith.

After all, that’s where I believe to find the answers to my own “mystery.” #thatwasdeep

In my opinion, books like these should be taught in our educational system. Instead of regurgitating facts from book to paper, it’s our ability to really critically think and own it that molds the mind.
If you’ve read this book, drop a comment on your biggest takeaway(s) & tag someone who could benefit from reading this book.
Use the Celery Test to keep your decision making in line to your why. Everyone has advice and everyone has opinions, but only you have your own specific why that drives you. The Celery Test helps keep that at the forefront. “People don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it.” “For great leaders, The Golden Circle is in balance. They are in pursuit of WHY, they hold themselves accountable to HOW they do it and WHAT they do serves as the tangible proof of what they believe.” “Leadership requires two things: a vision of the world that does not yet exist and the ability to communicate it.” - #SimonSinek .

Day 3: Book I read in one night • Roller Girl 👧🏻 🏅💛⭐️by Victoria Jamieson
This is a real gem of a graphic novel that my daughter recommended to me. Before I started my MLS degree study I have to admit I was skeptical of the graphic novel craze. My daughter was crazy about them and I kept harping for her to read “real” books! THIS book (& many more after) changed my mind! There is so much goodness packed into this and others and bonus(!) there’s beautiful artwork to go along with the text! I highly recommend them to young, reluctant readers now. Especially this one ☝🏼, anything by Raina Telgemaier @goraina, the Amulet series, and Be Prepared by Vera Bristol @verabee. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Perfect day to just relax and read 📖

Book 1 Is Free ❤️

Did you watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? Here's something a little more nostalgic 😉✨

It's been a long time since i've spent a whole night awake to get to the last page of a novel. But it was worth it enough for my sleepyness today. Highly recommended, if you appreciate historical novels.

I wish someone had saved me from this book🙊

While browsing Barnes & Noble I stumbled upon this book and the summary seemed intriguing so I was excited when I found it on bookoutlet. Two generations of a family trying to survive the lasting effects of Jim Crow, in a town surrounded by closing factories, racial wealth disparities, secrets, lies and death??... sign me up📝
______
Unfortunately, I was given broken plot lines, drawn out chapters and unexplained relationships. It took me days to read pages and each time I thought the book was picking up its pace it somehow got slower. The plot and timeline jumped all over the place, side characters disappeared even quicker than they appeared and I was unable to connect with any of the main characters because they were beyond dull. Sadly, this was the worst book I've read all year.
______
Life is too short to read bad books & I vow to never continue a book just for the sake of finishing it.

My life might be little and boring, but at least it’s mine - not some assembly-line, secondhand, hand-me-down life. -Chuck Palahniuk, Rant

There's just something special in reading Chuck Palahniuk. Always. His works are gritty, straight to core, yet relevant. The best thing about his works is how he fleshes out his characters to be as human as possible as you and me. Which Chuck Palaniuk book should I read next?

Hey ihr lieben 🥰
Wie war euer Tag? Also ich bin wieder Ferienreif. 🙈 Außerdem freue ich mich schon total auf die Weihnachtszeit. ☺️
Was macht ihr in der Weihnachtszeit am liebsten? Ich liebe Weihnachtsmärkte. 😍 Zudem Kuschel ich mich aber auch total gerne in mein Bett, mit einem guten Buch und einem Kakao. 😚


Die “Zodiac-“ Bücher von Romina Russell fand ich super. 😍 Die Bücher entführen euch in ein Universum voller Geheimnisse und Mysterien. Die Story ist fesselnd und hat starke Charaktere. ✨ Das Buch und die dazugehörige Story hat mich komplett mitgerissen und begeistert!


Und hier ist der Inhalt zu Band 1: ⤵️
In den Sternen liegt dein Schicksal ...
Das Sonnensystem Zodiac besteht aus zwölf Planetenkonstellationen, die nach den Tierkreiszeichen benannt sind. Doch wenn die 16-jährige Rho zu den Sternen aufblickt, sieht sie mehr als nur zwölf Welten: Sie sieht die Zukunft. Denn Rho verfügt über die Fähigkeit, die Sterne zu deuten. Aber als sie die Vernichtung ihrer Heimat Krebs voraussagt, glaubt ihr niemand – bis es zu spät ist. Unzählige Menschen sterben. Dann entdeckt Rho ein weiteres Omen in den Sternen, das nichts Gutes verheißt und ganz Zodiac vernichten könnte. Und plötzlich ist Rho die einzige, die den Untergang des Sonnensystems verhindern kann ... ✨✨

Habt noch einen schönen Abend. 😘
