2 women named Alice: 1 has amnesia, the other meets a man with amnesia. If you like strong characters, family dramedy, and the twisty plots found in Liane Moriarty’s novels, give Lisa Jewell a try. Jewell’s I Found You is perfect for fans of Moriarty’s What Alice Forgot. #bookpairing #fplrecommends

How often have you felt powerless in a situation – be it a personal matter, a work challenge, or even a situation that simply demands your attention.

Powerlessness engulfs us, and along with it all that we believe, know and feel. It makes us feel invisible and, in the process, alienates us from ourselves.

To overcome this, Amy Cuddy - Professor and Researcher of Social Psychology at Harvard Business School - introduced in her 2012 TEDTalk* the global phenomenon she calls Power-Posing.

Her study shows that the act of power-posing before an important appearance helps in synchronizing our body, mind and behavior. It builds Presence (the subject of this book) –a state of mind where individuals stop thinking about the impression they make on the other person and, instead, change their impression of themselves by being confident, comfortable, and passionate in their enthusiasm.

In her book, Cuddy explains how behaviour can be altered subconsciously by tweaking the mind and nudging your body language. She takes you through a step-by-step process of inculcating easy and simple changes in your routine; how power posing and believing in your story can help create a more honest and meaningful impact, or presence, on your audience. As she famously says in her TEDTalk: ‘Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.’
.
She also shares various fields of research that back the science behind her theories and the many stories of individuals who have overcome their fears and inhibitions by applying the methods described in this book.

You'll see it doesn't take much to feel strong and confident. Just pretend you're wonder woman and watch the magic happen.

When I read the Alchemist, two years ago, it had already been on my TBR for ever. At that point I quite liked the story of the shepherd boy who set out in search of a worldly treasure. The wisdom imparted in the book through his journey definitely struck a nerve.

Having read some of Coelho's other books now, I don't find them echoing the sentiments.

Books that are autobiographical (The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, The Zahir) seemed a little too spiritual for my taste.

The ones that are fictional (By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept, Veronika Decides to Die, The Devil and Miss Prym, The Fifth Mountain, Eleven Minutes, The Witch of Portobello) were also on similar lines but the story and characters added a little bit of intrigue that managed to keep me engaged.

At the end, though, it was not the out of world experience I imagined it to be. Instead, it was quite okay-ish. Even so, I am glad I read them. Now I'll know that I should pick up the fictional titles from his writing if I do get around to picking more.

The Paulo Coelho - Deluxe Edition Box Set includes ten titles by @paulocoelho (of which I have just finished reading nine - I removed The Alchemist from this picture because I read it back in 2016).
.
This box set edition published by Thorsons (an Imprint of @harpercollinsuk - @harpercollinsin).

#musicmonday had to wait till tuesday this week bc the @xboygeniusx EP that I preordered 500 yrs ago finally arrived 2day⚡️⚡️⚡️
❄️i’m so happy to pair up this intensely-harmonied, confrontational, catastrophic-in-the-best-way, wind-swept, mortifying and redemptive set of six songs with The Yesterday Project by poets Sandra and Ben Doller. this book was an experiment by a married couple, who decided to write each day for 32 days about how they spent the previous day. the setting? an isolating retreat to Mendocino and then Joshua Tree in the wake of Ben’s stage 3 cancer diagnosis. both boygenius and The Yesterday Project glow fervidly as collections, and both do so with multiple voices contributing to the depth of a narrative. each looks at the ways that we crush our own hearts in the softest of violent hands.
❄️carry both into winter friends; they were made for the cold.

This was another one of my impulse purchases - the cover looked great, the blurb had my attention, AND, it was on sale. These are not mere excuses because now that I've read it, I can tell you that all put together, they made a fabulous book.

An adult Ferzana Mahmud looks back at that fateful year when she was ten, had lost her mother to cancer, and her father decided to move the family, which included her three older siblings, to his native Pakistan.

Trying to adjust to their new life in Karachi and the eccentricities of their extended family, the four children escape into a world of fantasy. Imagining themselves as super-humans with incredible powers, they begin to investigate the members of their household.

What catches your attention here is how the story is narrated through the eyes of a precocious ten year old. While she may not make sense of everything, Ferzana's age plays to her benefit and it is she who, more often than not, rescues the foursome from trouble. However, underneath all their hullabaloo and the attempted rebellion, there lurks a quiet attempt at uncovering secrets that no one talks about, but which float in the air within the house.

What spoke to me at the core of this novel was how family, love and loss can repair and rebuild broken bridges. A father's dilemma in providing for his children while struggling to mend his remaining relationships; a patriarch torn apart by his past, unwilling to let go of his ego; a family united by name but divided in so many ways; and amidst them all, these children who don't know where they truly belong.

This is a novel that touched a nerve deep within and by the end it is not the revelation of the secret, but the destination that the family's journey together brings them to, that is a realisation of a new dawn.

Those Children by Shahbano Bilgrami. First edition published 2016 by @harpercollinsin.

I am officially on vacation 🙌🏻 I’m pretty excited about the bookish weekend I have planned. In other news I realized last night that I’ve had this collection of short stories on my shelf for over two years. 🙈 I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get to it. I am still genuinely excited to read it. Does this happen to you too? What book has been on your shelves the longest?

we’re having #thirstythursday with @olivialanguage in case you also want to #DRINK some extra limey moscow mules and read some very sharp stabs at #fascism. xoxo, egb
