Book Review
The Palace of Illusions
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Born of fire, Draupadi who calls herself Panchaali narrates her tale leading to the events in the Mahabharata. This is her own account of her peculiar birth, of her terrible anger and forgiveness when wronged, of her many loves, and of her devotion to her desires. She is no flat character who is given a heroic reimagining. No. Her narrative shows her to be a person filled with joys and regrets very much similar to ours. Her barest actions being controlled by the men around her, Draupadi too plays her part to get her share of raw power or fulfill her revenge. .
.
What I loved about the book was how Divakaruni wrote it. .
.
Let's look at her brilliance .
.
📖 First, the text gives powerful voices and more importantly, space, to many women in a text that is known to be set in a "man's world" .
.
📖 Secondly, she makes use of the element of foreshadowing certain events to the best of its ability and connects it to Vyasa, the text's author in a very creative way. .
.
📖 And thirdly, witty dialogue and beautiful lyrical writing is what compelled me to read ahead and stick till the end.

Towards the end, the novel tended to lag and flounder but overall, the book was worth it especially, the parts of her devotion and love of Krishna which struck even an atheist like me as fascianting.

#qotd - Any powerful mythological retellings that you would recommend and why?

Had a very good and refreshing morning today, (if you’ve seen my stories, you’ll know why) and I feel like the time taken out for myself is always a rewarding experience. So try it every once in a while too; read a book, hang out at a local cafe, get a cup of coffee or just people watch for a while. It’s so refreshing.

SABAHATTİN ALİ | KUYUCAKLI YUSUF
🌟 Sınav haftası nedeniyle geçen hafta atamadım, çünkü daha bunu bitirememiştim. Aylık ne okuduğum postu da gelmeyecek çünkü tüm ay boyunca bunu okuyabildim. Attığım tarihten anlarsınız zaten.
▪️
🌟 Ankara'nın Kuyucak kasabasında doğan Yusuf'un 10 yaşında iken annesi ve babasının öldürülüp bir Kaymakam tarafından evlat edinilmesiyle başlıyor hikayemiz. Bu Kaymakamın bir kızı vardır ve kız Yusuf'a vurulur. Büyüyüpte kıza görücüler gelmeye başladığında bunu Yusuf'a açar. İkisinin arasında çok güzel bir aşk geçerken geçmişte yaşanan bazı olaylar ve yeni gelişen olaylar onları yerlerinde rahat oturtturmaz. Bazı acılar gelir ki aile paramparça olup muhtaç duruma düşerler.
▪️
🌟 Sabahattin Ali'nin okuduğum 2. Kitabıydı ve yine mükemmeldi. Kürk Mantolu Madonna'nın aksine MEB'in 100 temel eser listesine giren bu klasik, aile içi mevzuları da konu aldığı için diye düşünüyorum. Gayet güzeldi fakat okul falan derken süratle okuyamadım. İnşallah siz hızla okuyorsunuzdur.
▪️ 🌟 Hangi kitapları okuyorsunuz? 🐨💕 ▪️ 🌟 Mutlu Pazarlar... 👻🍀

My latest @wdbookbox arrived and the theme is love triangles. So this month I got: 🍵 Chocolate Rose Tea from @rosieleateauk which smells incredible. 🛁 Love Letters Rose Gold Soap from @shimmerluxe which looks so pretty I almost don't want to use it. Also a bookmark, 2 stickers and of course the main event, Odd One Out by Nic Stone.
Loving this subscription service so much. 🤓💚📚💚🤓 #bookstagram #bookdragon #booknerd #booknerdigans #bibliophile #booklover #book #books #lovetoread #booksaremagic #bookish #differentworlds #personalibrary #read #reading #wildestdreamsbookbox #wdbookbox #bookmerch #bookmail #bookpost #oddoneout #nicstone #lovetriangles #soap #tea #rosieleatea

A mai kép témája a Holdbéli krónikák sorozat, amelyet sajnos félbehagyott anno a kiadó, de most a Könyvmolyképző elkezdte újra kiadni. Aminek nagyon örülök, mert hatalmas kedvencem lett az első rész (a második mondjuk nem annyira, de akkor is nagyon jó sorozat). Az utóbbi napokban nagyon bennem van, hogy elolvasnám már ezt a sorozatot, de magyarul ugye még nincs, angolul pedig sosincs túlzottan leárazva bookdepon. Szóval egyelőre csak álmodozom róla. 😅

Ti olvastátok már? Hogy tetszett nektek? Esetleg van itt, aki már az egész sorozatot olvasta? 😊

Q. Have you seen The Crimes of Grindelwald yet??😍 .
A. I HAVE!😄 I saw it in 4D which was amazing!😍 I avoided any reviews or spoilers so I could watch it bias free and I loved it!😄 It was much better than I thought it was going to be😂 My only issue is I'm not a fan of Ezra Miller as Credence😅 After I saw him in the Amy Schumer movie Trainwreck I just can't take him seriously😅
.
I'm obsessed with this Slytherin ribbon bookmark from @athousandcrafts 😍 If you've seen my previous post you will know I am a proud Slytherin🐍 It is just so pretty😍 It also gives me Southside Serpent vibes (anyone else watch Riverdale?)🐍
.
If you want to see more pretty ribbon bookmarks like this, hop on over to @athousandcrafts! There's some great Game of Thrones and ACoTaR ones! (You'll be seeing my ACoTaR ones soooon😄) You can use my discount code CASSANDRA10 for 10% off!!😄

Hallo ihr Lieben,
hier seht ihr  Einen Rosengarten Versprachich nie - Eine Dokumentation des Bundesamtes für magische Wesen zu interspezifischen Balz- und Paarungsritualen
.
.
.
Klappentext:
Und wieder berichten die AutorInnen des Bundesamtes für magische Wesen über ihre Beobachtungen der Mitbürger mit magischem Hintergrund. Mit diesem vierten Arbeitsbericht, der im Frühsommer 2018 erscheint, dokumentieren wir exemplarisch interspezifische Beziehungen und Balzrituale magischer Mitbürger beiderlei Geschlechts, sowohl solche heterosexueller wie schwuler Orientierung. .
.

Interspezifische Beziehungen und Balzrituale

Nicht nur im Wonnemonat Mai ziehen bleiche, in jüngerer Zeit sogar glitzernde Jünglinge mit alternativen Ernährungsbedürfnissen auf Basis von Hämoglobin die nichtmagische männliche wie weibliche Bevölkerung an. Vor allem sich auf Partnersuche befindende junge Leute sind anfällig für den Charme dieser meist harmlosen Mitbürger magischer Herkunft.
Aber nicht nur Vampire, sondern auch Werwölfe, Nachtmahre, Dschinnen sowie Dämonen und der eine oder andere Incubus und natürlich Menschen wissen über sich ergebende interspezifische Begegnungen zu berichten, vom erotischen Rendezvous bis hin zu langjährigen Beziehungen.
In vierzehn Geschichten der Mitarbeiter des Bundesamtes für magische Wesen treffen Sie magische Mitbürger, die sich auf ihre ganz eigene Art und Weise mit dem Beziehungsstress im alltäglichen Leben herumschlagen. Sie finden Humor und Horror, Komödie und Drama, kurz: das allzeit komplizierte Liebesleben, egal ob schwul oder hetero, wie im echten Leben auch. .
.
.
[Die ganze Rezi findet ihr auf meinem Blog]
.
.
Mein Fazit:
Eine Kurzgenschichtensammlung die nur so vor Vielfalt strotzt.
Es kommen allerhand Wesen in den Geschichten vor, sodass für jeden etwas dabei ist und auch verschiedene Sexualitäten.
Einige Geschichten fand ich richtig toll, andere nicht so sehr. Aber so ist es wohl bei fast allen Sammlungen mit Kurzgeschichten.
Unterhaltsam und interessant, besonders weil es nicht nur um die typischen magischen Wesen ging.
💖💖💖💖

I'm still trying to find my groove on my Instagram theme. I don't have a whole lot of time in my week to spend hours on a single pic, so I'm trying to find something that I'm happy with and that doesn't take up half my day.
How does this look?
In other news, I have officially met the 50,000 word word count for #NaNoWriMo and have almost reached the end of my story for the second time and hopefully the last complete re-write of the book! Haha
I'm very excited to have it done and let it rest for a bit. I know my website isn't getting as much love as normal and my reading has declined a bit, but that's soon to change! 😁😁

What if humans found the key to immortality? Dying was no longer a part of life... But the earth would get awfully crowded. So they'd have to come up with a solution to keep the population under control. This is how the Scythedom was born. Professional killers, or saviours of the human race? And how would you decide who gets to live and who has to die?
.
A fascinating, thought-provoking novel.

📚 Which kind of bookish merch do you like to collect?📚
.
🐉 I love collecting pins, candles and magnetic bookmarks. They are the best 😍 The only problem with bookish candles is the shipping cost, so if you know any shops based in Europe please let me know (and I’ll forever be grateful! Not my bank account though, but meh lol)
.
🐉 I also just finished an assignment for college so I now plan to do nothing but read all day, yaassss!
.
🐉 Have a very nice bookish day!

'Whatever comes,' she said, 'cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.'

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend.
Last night I finished Lethal White by Robert Galbraith. It was my first read for the #readwithacobaf reading challenge and the prompt, books set in another country. I really enjoyed it and loved being back with Strike and Robin. My next read is going to be Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli.
QOTD: What are you currently reading?
AOTD: I'm just about to start Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Good morning bookies 😊
.
Hope you're all gonna have a great Sunday. I've got house cleaning, taking a few pics in advance, family visits, reading and writing on my agenda for today.
.
Q: Have you read any books by Cecelia Ahern? Which one's your favorite? I love the magic realism in her stories. The Gift is a sad book but, in my opinion, one of her best.
.
Happy #socksunday everyone 😍 And yes, I definitely love fun socks 💙💜
