Happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!
.
@groveatlantic was very kind to send me a copy of Megan Hunter's The End We Start From and it's the perfect quick novel for this season of thanksgiving.
It follows a new mother who gives birth to her son in the midst of a London apocalypse and how she raises her child in the chaos. The book was a fast read, its sentences reduced to the bare minimum that delivered the greatest impact.
Even though I read it in an hour, its haunting tone and tale stuck with me for a couple of days. It definitely makes you think about the things we take for granted, such as food and shelter and sometimes, even family. It's tale is vivid and thought provoking. I really liked the writing style and not to mention that cover! 😍
If you've read this book, let me know what you thought of it!

Kujelaskan lagi pada kalian kalau aku tak menyukai otoritas yang merasa diri paling tahu dan berhak untuk mengatur segalanya. Aku dulu hidup pada masa masa militer Prusia diagung-agungkan. Pada masaku tentara membengkak jumlahnya: dari 3000 menjadi 25500. Wajib militer selama tiga tahun diberlakukan. Buku-buku sosialis dilarang. Barisan serdadu itu suka buat parade dan berbaris. Kalau aku menyaksikan pemandangan itu aku menangis, sambil mengatakan: ‘aku tak mau jadi salah satu dari orang-orang yang menyedihkan itu, jika ada orang yang senang menyamakan langkah waktu mendengar musik sudah cukup bagiku untuk membencinya. Ia dikaruniai otak sebesar itu hanya karena kesalahan’. Jangan tertawa karena memang itulah penilaianku yang sebenarnya! Aku begitu tak menyukai pendidikan yang membuat ‘manusia otomatis yang rusak secara spiritual dan patuh secara mekanis’. Itu sebabnya aku tak menyukai militer apalagi militerisme. Aku bahkan benci seragam seperti pada masaku dimana Presiden pakai baju militer dan supir taksi sekalipun pakai baju seragam. Kulihat pendidikanmu diasuh oleh guru yang mentalnya seperti serdadu. Aku dulu pernah sekolah seperti itu dan aku membencinya. Buatku sekolah itu harus memberi kebebasan dan menjamin setiap individu untuk menyatakan pendapatnya. Aku bahkan memandang guru-guru di sekolah dasar mirip para sersan sedangkan di sekolah menengah serupa letnan!

After 11 emotional and unplanned for days away, I am home. Thank you so much for all of your kind messages. I brought this golden and turquoise wave print fabric home from my grandmother’s fabric storage and it so perfectly matched “The End We Start From”, with the colors and waves on the cover, I had to use it today. .
🌊
I was sent this review copy by Grove Press and I think you could probably finish “The End We Start From” in an hour or less the way it is written. For a book with not that many words in it, the images and feelings those words conjured up for me were incredibly clear. (the cover quote by Emily St. John Mandel calls this book “beautifully spare” and I think that’s honestly the best way you could describe it.) I’m not sure the style is for everyone, but it was so nice for me to read something new. (I think poetry lovers would really appreciate the style too, since it was kind of like a prose poem.) .
🌊
Basically this story is my worst nightmare as a mother. haha. Having a baby right before your city goes under flood waters and then trying to survive? The synopsis describes this as “an indelible and elemental debut—a lyrical vision of strangeness and beauty in new motherhood, and a tale of endurance in the face of ungovernable change.” After all the hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires that were all over the world in quick succession just recently, the images I saw on the news filled my head up as I read this. Maybe for my life this was fiction, but for so many it is not. .
🌊
There were a bunch of sections in italics that broke up the story and I learned that those were inspired and adapted from many mythological and religious texts about the creation. Between the birth of a child, the end of the world, and the theme of creating a new world, I thought it was really well done. If you’re looking to mix things up a bit or want a quick read, this is worth a try. .
🌊
Let’s say in the face of disaster you had the time and ability to save one thing. I’m not talking about family or friends or things used for survival. One thing that you couldn’t bear to think of as lost forever. What would you save? I would save journals or photo albums.

THEY LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER ❤❤ #Aylessio I freaking love this photo 😍

The Mafia and His Angel: Part 3 🌹
Happy #ReleaseDay @authorlylahjames!

“But all I know is that I will never leave you. I will forever be at your side, just like we were meant to be. From the very beginning, we were fated.” 🖤

IT’S LIVE ANGELS!
Ah, look at them all together. TMAHA: Part 3 is finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited 🎉
I was thrilled when I received an ARC of this baby, because I don’t think I could’ve waited any longer. Lylah, you were killing me. If you take a stroll through my feed, you’ll see that I absolutely ADORE this series and … I was not disappointed!
What a wild ride. I was a wreck after part two, and left with so many unanswered questions!! The third, and final, instalment in The Mafia and His Angel gave me everything; and then some. #Aylessio continue to steal my heart. What haven’t these two gone through together?! I’ve really enjoyed watching their transformation throughout this series.
Turning the last page was bittersweet. I have so many favourite moments that I could never choose just one. Everything has now come full-circle, and you don’t want to miss it. This story is heart-breaking and beautiful, steamy and callous. My heart could not be more happy with this conclusion!
Ps. Read until the VERY end 😈
Now you can binge read all the TMAHA books (parts 1 to 3), which I highly recommend!! Romantic Suspense lovers, LOOK NO FURTHER.

This book left me with quite mixed feelings to be honest. I wanted to love it, it’s been compared to White Teeth by Zadie Smith which is one of my all time faves, but I thought it lacked the vibrancy and liveliness of White Teeth, despite both of them portraying the lives of immigrants in London.
.
Brick Lane follows Nazneen, a Bangladeshi woman who moves to London for an arranged marriage. I think the slowness of the book comes from the passivity of Nazneen, as she doesn’t really do much for much of the first half. Her husband, Chanu, is such an interesting character though. He is tragic, annoying, inspiring, and hilarious all at once, and I really felt for him trying to find an outlet for his passions in a system where he doesn’t feel appreciated!
.
My favourite parts of the book were the passages describing anecdotes from Nazneen’s childhood in Bangladesh - I wish there were more of them! The letters from Hasina, Nazneen’s sister, were also interesting (not to mention heartbreaking) but the extremely stilted English that they’re written in is off-putting and tiresome to read. It seemed to me that the first batch were written far better than all the others - her writing seemed to deteriorate, I thought it was inconsistent.
.
Overall, plenty of compelling parts, such as Nazneen’s friend Razia’s struggle with her wayward son, but too many dry patches that dragged, and a romantic subplot that I didn’t care for. Ali did a great job of depicting the rising racial tensions in the early 2000s though!

#theclubofbooksreview - rated 3.5🌟
I finished this last week or the week before. Can't remember. All the days have kind of merged into one big day at the moment and I seem to have lost track of time a bit. I watched an episode of the TV series on #Netflix last night and was quite impressed with how they depicted the characters, Grace in particular is just how I imagined her to be. I almost wish I watched the series now before reading the book. *

The book itself I found to be absolutely brilliant at times. At other times it dragged a wee bit, felt long and for me, was superfluous in detail that I admit to skim reading. Grace was remarkable - she is one smart, vibrant woman and her story was captivating. I wanted more of that and less of the other characters. It's still taking a lot for me to get into a book and enjoy reading again but I started 'The Versions of Us' last night in an attempt to do just that. *

Finally, Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating. We really do have so very much to be thankful for which is why I love the premise of Thanksgiving ❤

I finished Winter last week and right now my idea of a truly great time is sharing a glass of wine and talking about it with someone who inhaled its words deeply, allowing them to seep in slowly and then all at once. Like tea from a teabag. Like falling in love. In an effort towards objectivity I would concede that it’s not flawless - as a statement of liberal values, it is less subtle and stunning than Autumn. It is also bleaker and a tad looser. But that's not what I would want to insist upon. I wouldn’t insist on its plot or characters. Maybe I wouldn’t even linger on its structure, linked to Ali's signature questioning & challenging of the idea of time in a novel. As much as I love literary allusions & clins d'œil, I might not even mention Dickens' hovering spirit. Nor Shakespeare's. Nor Spark's. Perhaps I'd discuss the hypnotic effect of reading almost real-time literature, but briefly, in passing. Surprisingly, I wouldn't necessarily talk of it in terms of its core subjects - protest, the cyclical nature of history, battles lost or won only temporarily, always temporarily, dialogue, finding common ground & a convergence point despite differences. Differences of age. Of generation. Of political leanings. No, I wouldn't expand on any of these. Instead, I'd simply focus on Ali's glee to play with words. On her miraculous power to suffuse them with joy & energy, with irony & anger. With fresh meaning. For in a world in which lies are both sanctioned and sanctified, in which words are rendered meaningless, used loosely to defend the indefensible and hide the void, Ali's capacity to unite past & present, to use words as a power cord, is more necessary than ever. “Art is seeing things” and her words, like Barbara Hepworth’s work, make one "see inside and outside at once". She sees words and makes one see them too, in clear, invigorating light. No. Words are not dead. Ali (Word)Smith makes them hum with life. And that's what I'd want to talk about.

Oh, I'd also like to greet all those reviews insisting that there's no link between Autumn & Winter, no overlap in characters or plot, with a smile. A mischievous, "Cheshire catly smile". I, ahm, I refute them thus.

Starting on Saturday, the epic post-apocalyptic trilogy is free to download. Please enjoy a good read on me. It’s perhaps my favorite...and it could be your’s too. ⚔️ https://www.amazon.com/Redeem-Knight-Trilogy-David-Mammina-ebook/dp/B014HZAL8E/ref=sr_1_3_twi_kin_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468790526&sr=8-3&keywords=David+V+Mammina#navbar
Summary of what’s inside-
The ultimate and complete edition of the Redeem the Knight series is here. Six hundred years after the assumed apocalypse, the New Vatican has raised an army of holy knights to usher in a rehabilitated world of order and light. Equipped with the Divine Mace and the Armor of God, these knights are exclusively chosen to defend righteousness and crush rebellious evil. While the holy order sets out to portray a greater example for the rest of the rising world, one of their own falls into darkness. A holy knight has committed terrible sins of vengeance against those allegedly responsible for killing his wife and child. In turn, he has been exiled to Islandia, a nearby island, to live out his days of solitude with only a faithful dog to accompany him. This is the story of a disgraced paladin on a quest for redemption in a troubled world that needs him the most.

@Regranned from @julezdiary - Book Review

The uncommon man is merely the common man thinking and dreaming of success and in more fruitful areas.

In our economic system, your income will be determined by 3 factors: First, what you do; second, how well you do it; and third, the difficulty of replacing you.

To achieve something that you have never achieved before, you must become someone that you have been before.

Remember the question, "How do you eat an elephant?" and the answer, "One bite atva time." This is the same way you become absolutely excellent at what time do. You move to the top one step, one skill, one small improvement at a time.

Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly at first". It is not practice that makes perfect; it is imperfect practice that eventually makes perfect.

Goals!(Brian Tracy)

Feliz viernes. Ya por fin llegó el tan deseado fin de semana para muchos, ¿saben qué me gustaría hacer? No, no será leer mucho, será descansar 😂😂. He estado en la semana pegada a cierto libro que me ha tenido muy bien amarrada y que pronto hablaremos de ello aquí.

¿Quién no ha oído hablar sobre Don Quijote de La Mancha? Yo sí, e incluso, en la secundaria como asignación, me hicieron leer y analizar unos cuantos pasajes que vagamente recuerdo, pero pienso que para el próximo año debería honrar al libro y leerlo completo de una vez 📚💜.

Y ustedes, ¿qué opinión pueden darme de este libro? Cuéntenme en los comentarios 😚😚.


Happy Friday. At last the long-awaited weekend arrived for many, do you know what I would like to do? No, it will not be reading much, it will be resting 😂😂. I have been in the week attached to a certain book that has had me very well tied and we will soon talk about it here.

Who has not heard about Don Quijote de La Mancha? I did, and even, in high school as an assignment, they made me read and analyze a few passages that I vaguely remember, but I think that next year I should honor the book and read it all at once 📚💜.

And you, what opinion can you give me of this book? Tell me in the comments 😚😚.

Christmas will be here before we know it. Do you have a bookworm on your list? Are you looking to treat yourself? My novel, "A Walk With Henry", is available in paperback and e-book on Amazon. For those loyal Barnes and Noble members, don't fret, the paperback can be ordered from their website. ⛄🎄⛄🎄⛄🎄 Here's a recent review: "What a beautiful story about friendship, love, healing and community with a cast of strong female characters! Julie Minten's novel was such a pleasure to read. I completely got lost in Oak Bend. Reading A Walk with Henry was like sitting down with a girlfriend and catching up! I highly recommend it and look forward to her next book!" #fiction #goodstorytelling #newauthor #awalkwithhenry #booklovers #bookworm #read #hobby #readingisfun #christmasiscoming #christmas #christmasgift #treatyourself #loveandloss #love #friendship #community #igdaily #instagood #instagrammers #photooftheday #picoftheday #bookreview

Carey (The Girl With All The Gifts) Toby Litt (Corpsing, DeadKidSongs) Courttia Newland (A Book of Blues) James Miller (Sunshine State) and David James Poissant (The Heaven of Animals) along with new voices in the field, including the EXIT EARTH short story competition winner Rachel Connor, this anthology is ready to go nuclear!!!

Paulo Coelho’s, The Alchemist is a fantastic, short read! 📚”To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only obligation.” The story is about Santiago, a shepherd boy who travels in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. On his journey, Santiago meets many interesting people, each teaching him an important life lesson. “What starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within.” The Alchemist is a book that speaks to the power of our hopes and dreams. 📖 Have you read this book?

@booksofstarlight tagged me to do the "20 random facts about me" thingie so I thought I might as well attempt to do it since none of you know me.
If you have any questions you wanna ask me about anything or are wondering something then feel free to do so, I'll gladly answer.
1. Im 21

2. I live in sweden

3. I speak 3 languages (swedish, english and bosnian/serbian) (I probably could understand a little german as well, but like very very veeerryyy little, like todler level)
4. I study human rights at uni/college (?), which is basically a lot of law stuff, intertwined with politics and lots and lots of philosophy.
5. Literally addicted to coffee, like I feel sick and nauseous every morning until I get my coffee.
6. Some of my fave books, that I definitely recommend are; Jane Eyre, Invisible Monsters, The Bookthief, And The Mountains Echoed, 1984.

7. I cant sweeten my drinks. Like tea, coffee, lemonade, etc... I cant drink it with sugar, it disgusts me. I like the taste of the beverage itself and sugar just ruins it. Also I cant drink the last sip, theres always a small sip left at the bottom, idk why, I just never drink it.
8. I put hot sauce and/or bbq sauce on everything

9. Out of every bouquet of roses I get, I save one rose after they wither. I have a vase with a bouquet of dried up roses and every rose is different. Its kinda sad, they are dead flowers whose beauty is half preserved but still.. 10. I have so many issues with time. How irregularly it passes and changes in relation to how much we've experienced it, and getting older, and life passing me by, and also timezones like the fuck?

11. Sunflowers are probably my fave flowers. And also venus flytraps!! I have a small baby flytrap in my room and Im doing my best as a single mother to keep it alive tho I do forget to water it sometimes... 12. My grandpa is one of my biggest "inspirations" for reading. He always used to tell me such unique, intresting stories when I was a child, that I had never heard or seen anywhere else, and he always used to encourage me to read and talked about how books are important.
13. I really like mythology, doesnt matter if its greek, egyptian or whichever

Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley 5/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reclaim your Heart ✅
thoughts: it may be really good use for sisters who can actually relate to the author @yasminmogahed 's life experiences. there was the odd paragraph here and there which really hit home. however on a whole it was quite repetitive and a bit of a downer (i was waiting for an uplift like a happy ever after but it didn't have that). yet it reassured where you are is not who you are. strive towards your end destination, Jannah iA. it is eye opening heart opening and mind opening about what should be prioritised in this Dunya and i loved loved loved the short poems (like this pic) on the end. 📚 @amsons / 12.49£ #bookworm #books #reading #love #blogger #bookreview #reclaimyourheart #food #coffee #quote #quoteoftheday #deathbeforedecaf #instafood #faithfoodandfitness #islam #muslim #faith #spiritual #potd #iphone #sky #jj #friends #girls #happyweekend
