Alright, short story time and a peek into my weird mind and how this relates to this book. .
I have been irrationally afraid of vampires my entire life. As a kid I could never sleep unless the blankets were pulled up around my neck. (you won’t find me tempting a vampire or making it any easier for them to get at my throat) .
Flash forward several years when I refused to read Twilight during the Twilight craze because anyone who believes a vampire can be good deserves what they get. Anyway, after I got married this all came up when the Twilight movies were coming out and I revealed this deep fear to my husband. Later that night when I was just about to fall asleep, my husband slid his arm over and placed two fingers on my neck and whispered “just feeling for the perfect spot.” hahaha. OMG. I basically flew out of the bed and it was in that moment that I had this wild thought that I had no idea who my husband really was after all and that he could in fact be a vampire lying in wait to drain the life out of me. .
Eight years later I’ve finally read (and enjoyed) Twilight (book one), I’ve come to accept that my pale and handsome husband may be a vampire, and this is a funny joke between us. .
Anyway, why do I mention this? haha. Because when I read the synopsis for “Unraveling Oliver” it reminded me of that moment. This book opens with the horrific crime of Oliver basically beating his wife to death after years of wonderful marriage. They share a career of writing children’s books together and then suddenly he’s beaten her into a coma. It’s that one moment where you look at someone you’ve known for so long and wonder and realize maybe you didn’t know them like you thought. .
BECAUSE MAYBE YOUR HUSBAND IS A SECRET VAMPIRE. Or someone capable of beating you senseless. It’s honestly terrifying. This book isn’t new, but it arrived on my doorstep this past week and isn’t very long. I’m thinking about bringing it to BEA with me next week to read on the plane! .
Has anyone read it? What are some of your book-inspired fears?

"At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done--then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago."

Sharing the covers of my darling new Puffin + V&A Classics. This has quickly become one of my favorite collections.

I swear these last few days have been super busy! I'm getting ready for my last live video over at @theliterarybox on Facebook, planning for NYC and trying to read, catch up on TV and keep myself and my child clean and fed!
How is your day going? Got any tips on how to get more done in a day?

today was such a gloomy and grey day that the world appeared to have an apocalyptic faded filter slapped over it. the best sort of day to spend by the window with a steaming mug of tea, a book, candles and soft tunes. 🌧

Poziom fejmu, rozpoznawalności i blasku gwiazd na tym zdjęciu przekracza wszelkie granicę. 😉

To wszystko za sprawą tej pani po lewej stronie czyli sympatycznej Moniki (@books.and.cats.lover), która miałem okazję poznać na WTK 2017. I nie było to w żadnym razie spotkanie przypadkowe. Tylko celowe i zamierzone spotkanie. 😉

A ten gość po prawej? Jego to chyba nie kojarzę. Jakis no name, który tylko wcisnął się w kadr. 😂

Jak już dobrze wiecie Targi zakończyły się w ostatnią niedzielę. Czas więc na moją relację. Jeżeli jesteście ciekawi jak przebiegały te wszystkie spotkania z autorami (i nie tylko), chcecie poznać tajemne sekrety niektórych autorów kryminałów (jedni nie pamiętają treści swoich książek, inni przyjmują łapówki,), w jakich okolicznościach powstał zwrot "Pan Lechita", o co dziwnego poprosiłem pewną autorkę albo jak zakręcić Remigiuszem Mrozem by to on nie wiedział gdzie jest to zapraszam na bloga. Link w opisie profilu. Tak czeka na Was długa opowieść ze szczegółami wszystkich spotkań, które miałem okazję odbyć. Życzę przyjemnej lektury. 😉

P.S. No i pozdrawiam wszystkie osobistości instagramowe, które miałem okazje poznać (@ewelinalaszczuk, @w4osobie Wy wiecie o kim mowa). 😁

P.S.2 No i rzecz jasna pozdrawiam kocią gwiazdę polskiego bookstagrama czyli Borysa. Jego zdjęcia znajdziecie tutaj -->> @books.and.cats.lover 😊

P.S. 3 Nie będę już nic więcej pisał. Lećcie na bloga i sprawdźcie, kogo zaraziłem moimi P.S. 😂

I shall do one thing in this life - one thing certain - that is, love you, and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die.

"You know, you spend your whole life feeling like you don’t quite fit in anywhere. And then you walk into a room one day, whether it’s at university or an office or some kind of club, and you just go, ‘Ah. There they are.’ And suddenly you feel at home."-One Plus One, Jojo Moyes.

This book is amazing. A fast read and a wonderful story. And even when I'm not down for romance books, I was never ever bored of reading this book. Left me with some kind of a hangover. -M

Mawar Merah: Mosaik by Luna Torashyngu
My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
Date finished: May 25, 2017

Note: pinjem buku ini dari si kece @ijakarta.id

Jadi begini... dulu.. saya salah satu remaja yang hari-harinya dihabiskan bersama buku-buku jenis teenlit. Salah satu dari mereka yang tak sabar menunggu malam minggu karna itu artinya tak perlu repot-repot tidur karna besok tak ada sekolah, jadi bisa pinjam buku sebanyak-banyaknya dan habiskan waktu sama novel dan komik pujaan (meski nggak pernah janji nggak sentuh fiksi selama hari sekolah juga, sih). Intinya, saya ingat ketemu buku ini diakhir tahun-tahun sekolah itu, dan entah bagaimana takdir mempertemukan kami kembali saat ini. Saya nggak pernah sempat baca buku ini, masa itu. Tapi saya ingat benar kalau Luna Torashyngu adalah salah satu penulis favorit saya. Kebayang dong, bagaimana bersamangatnya saya saat akhirnya, saat ini, bisa baca buku ini (ada sedikit keinginan untuk bernostalgia dengan masa-masa dulu juga, sepertinya). Nah, balon excitement saya seolah dikembangkan di bagian-bagian awal buku ini.
Premisnya menarik. Menjanjikan cerita yang akan jadi luar biasa. Saya pikir. Buku ini tentang seorang pembunuh bayaran, soalnya. Tentu -harusnya- akan jadi seru dan menagangkan, bukan?
Mengurai kasus. Menebak apa, bagaimana, dan mengapa semuanya terjadi. Hal-hal semacam itu.
Tapi sayang, balonnya gak pernah tertiup sempurna. Sedikit demi sedikit udaranya keluar, lalu kempes seutuhnya.
Balon itu.
Seperti ketertarikan saya pada buku ini. Perlahan-lahan saya kehilangan minat. Saya nggak bisa benar-benar menghubungkan diri saya baik dengan dunia ini, atau pun tokoh-tokoh yang terlibat didalamnya.
Review yang benar-benar tidak masuk akal, nampaknya.. Intinya, mungkin buku-buku Luna sudah bukan lagi zona nyaman saya.

I had a $5 discount at Indigo/Chapters so I bought the boys some graphic novels 😄
Our youngest is obsessed with Captain Underpants and we thought that Rick Riodan's graphic novels would be a good gateway for our oldest to venture forth into the awesome that is his writing (from what I've heard. Kinda aged out of his series I think. We'll see.) But yeah. Just because I'm in a bit of a reading slump doesn't mean my offspring have to be 😛

Έχεις αναρωτηθεί ποιος είναι ο στόχος σου σε αυτή τη ζωή;
Τι θα έκανες για να τον πετύχεις;
Θα θυσίαζες οτιδήποτε;
Τον χρόνο σου, την οικογένεια σου;
Ή ακόμη και τον ίδιο σου τον εαυτό;

Сегодня #вкнижнойсреде у нас с @maru_i_pushister книга Энн Ламотт «Птица за птицей. Заметки о писательстве и жизни в целом». Другие статьи этой рубрики можно посмотреть по тегам #travelcoma_books #вкнижнуюсреду. В творческих кругах эта книга сейчас очень популярна (и остаётся бестселлером уже 20 лет). И не зря – книга понятная и хорошая. Автор – писатель во втором поколении, обучает писательскому мастерству, смело заявляя: «Я готова вытащить из вас любую ненаписанную книгу». Обложку к русскому изданию оформила Натали Ратковски, дизайнер и иллюстратор, живущая в Германии, она же автор книг "Профессия– иллюстратор" и "Разреши себе творить". Так вот, о чём же пишет писательница Энн Ламотт: 💠Если хотите писать – пишите, вы имеете на это право. 💠Публиковаться не так важно. Важно писать. В процессе вы растёте, это и работа, и игра, когда «захватывает дух от находок, возможностей, новых горизонтов». 💠 Сразу хорошо и гладко не получается, или получается очень редко. Надо регулярно писать, практиковаться. «Есть только один настоящий способ: долби каждый день свои гаммы, бери пьесы все сложней и сложней, слушай, как великие музыканты играют твои любимые вещи, — и потихоньку научишься. Есть в работе моменты, когда все наскучит и встанет поперек горла, и не знаешь, сможешь ли ты сегодня взять себя в руки и продолжать. Вы думаете, у признанных писателей не бывает этих часов скуки и уныния, когда сам себе кажешься ничтожным и суетливым, как блоха? Все бывает. Но порой чувствуешь, что писать — великое счастье, что именно этим ты хочешь заниматься всю жизнь. Тот, кто вправду всей душой жаждет писать, всегда найдет способ сказать свое слово. И сделать это очень, очень важно». 💠«Хорошо писать – значит рассказывать правду». 💠 Пишите о том, что пережили сами, «всё, что случилось с вами, принадлежит вам». 💠«Чем лучше человек пишет, тем лучше он читает, тем больше находит в чужом тексте. Учиться писать стоит хотя бы ради этого». 💠 Писать надо понемногу, маленькими порциями. Мелкими шагами можно осилить большой путь. Автор даже вынесла эту идею в заглавие книги. Продолжение⬇️⬇️⬇️

Oh Lord ! This book was so good ! I really like the multi-perspectives it made the book more dynamic than the first two, in my opinion. I absolutely love the new characters: Manon, Abraxos and don't even get me started on Rowan ! The way the plot unfolds really keeps you on the edge of your seat and kept me reading for hours. Every minute of it was a delight. 5/5 🌟 of course !
