Leituras de Janeiro 📚
Comecei o ano com oito livros lidos. Me surpreendi com o número é já quero repetir esse feito em fevereiro! 🤞🏽
Paginômetro: 1774 páginas.
____

Melhor leitura: Oh, dúvida! "Fúria Vermelha" é sensacional e me deixou de queixo caído. 😲 Mas quem ganhou meu ❤️, uma vaga para os indicados de melhor do ano e o posto de Favorito do Mês foi "Kindred". Pior leitura: "Ágape", que só li por causa do #30desafiosdeleitura.

Qual o melhor e o pior livro que vocês leram em Janeiro?

Kindred, escrito por Octavia E. Butler, é um daqueles livros que te surpreendem positivamente e te dão um soco no estômago. Ao abordar a escravidão sem rodeios, com uma linguagem direta, Octavia nos convida à reflexão acerca da natureza humana e até onde é capaz de ir o ser humano. Uma preciosidade. Recomendo muito! #igliterario #bookgram #bookstagram #book #books #bookworm #booklove #desafiodeleitura2018 #instabook #instalivros #instagrammer #bookinstagram #livros #livro #ler #leitura #metadeleitura2018 #decemberreading #readers #lendo #amoler #booklike #booklove #booksofinstagram #igbooks #kindred #editoramorrobranco

Min december var fyldt med julehygge, gode bøger og en masse skønne ting. Min månedlige opsummering for december kan læses på bloggen. Jeg fik læst 6 bøger og spist en masse chokolade - mums... 😊

December's reading pile. The bustle and rush of December had me reaching for two poetry collections and two novels, and Anna Livesey's third poetry collection, Ordinary Time, really hit the mark. Intimate and achingly present, it is a beautiful meditation on parenthood and life itself. The other book that ripped me wide open was Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire - a contemporary reworking of Sophocles' Antigone. I have found myself continuing to return to this novel, to think it through again, to figure out how to talk about it and what to say. There's religious duty, inheritance, sacrifice, the fragility of nationality, terrorism, death and burial, the strength and obligation of natural law and duty, familial love and obligation, and an overwhelming sense of futility and despair propelling everything forward. It's an urgent, incredible read #decemberreading #bookstagram #bookish #ordinarytime #annalivesey #nzpoetry #kamilashamsie #homefire #theleavers #lisako #carolinebird #thehatstandunion

"O tempo: via e viagem" é obra tocante. O poeta Solon Borges nos leva a uma jornada que contempla o ajuste da vida ao tempo que ela tem para acontecer. Tal qual o título sugere, na poesia desse livro vemos a vida evoluir tal qual um trem: rumando sobre os trilhos do tempo, com destino ao desconhecido, passando por estações que representam os acontecimentos da vida que nos marcam.
No geral, vale a pena embarcar nessa viagem poética. A leitura é rapida e cheia de oportunidades de reflexões.

Primeiro livro lido em 2018. Terminei há alguns dias e já estou com saudades de Coraline. Nessa obra, Neil Gaiman nos conta a história de Coraline, uma garota destemida que enfrenta um grande perigo em sua própria casa. A escrita de Gaiman é cativante, claramente direcionada aos jovens leitores, mas nem por isso não interessante ao público adulto. O que me chamou a atenção neste livro foi o quão madura Coraline aparenta ser. Tive a impressão que lia uma adolescente (no auge dos seus 15/16 anos) se aventurando nas descobertas das lições que a vida nos dá. A delicadeza dos personagens é única, encantadora. Vale a pena se aventurar com Coraline pelos encantos que Gaiman criou para todos nós.

A few days late but a December wrap up. This last month had some pretty fantastic reads in it, including some Christmas and birthday presents from my parents, @illbecomethesea and @forestwycth. I have a major weakness for @ndpublishing and anything they publish, so naturally I picked up Go, Went, Gone and I Am the Brother of XX when I came across them in recent bookstore outings. A few months ago, we went to a conversation between Michael Chabon and Zadie Smith where she mentioned Conversations With Friends, so I was excited to read it after I got it for my birthday. Overall, all of these were pretty stellar reads, with my highest recommendations going to Go, Went, Gone, which you should read if you’re a human, Her Body and Other Parties, which you should also read if you love good short stories, and finally Between the World and Me, which you should read if you need more good non-fiction, but also if you’re human. -
‘In the beginning was an undifferentiated whole that contained everything: feminine and masculine, space and time, sameness and multiplicity. This totality sank down through the emptiness and revealed itself in multifarious forms. The feminine is dense and corporeal, it is made of primordial matter and was there at the beginning, then the masculine arrived, lighter in substance and mobile. In just this way, space and time came into being. But all these manifestations are mutually dependent, none stands above the other, rather each compliments the other, and in all their multifariousness they remain a whole, a single body. In just this way, individual human beings in society are parts of a living totality - like the different organs in a body, they perform different functions but inextricably connected.’ -Go, Went, Gone.

Here are my December reads! The highlights were Pride and Prej (always), Carrie Fisher’s everything, What Happened (which should have been titled ‘WTF Happened’ but still), The Goldfinch and Olive Kitteridge. Donna Tartt and Elizabeth Strout know how to write, yo.
📚
Anyway, that makes 80 books in 2017. Bit good, lads – and so many highlights among them. I probably won’t do monthly posts again, in large part because piles of books aren’t the most interesting images. Instead I might post about individual books more when they stand out to me. We’ll see! I would really love reading recs from you, though, because I don’t have too many lined up for 2018 and that just won’t do.
📚
So, what would you recommend? Any stand-outs in 2017 that I need to check out? HMU.

In the blissful Christmas Chronicles (28th December chapter) Nigel talks about that warm lazy reading time in between Christmas and New Year – well this year I had that joy, and this is one of the books I curled up with.

Today I finished my last December book, Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare @cassieclare1 It totally counts even then it’s January first. Shhhh. Anyways I gave this book five stars on Goodreads. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Here’s my review: This book huh. I found the beginning and end golden but the middle a little dull. To truly enjoy this book you have to let yourself which I had trouble figuring out how to do until the very end. This is one of those books that you can easily picture as a movie playing in your head. The plot is very interesting but at points I had to go back and reread because it got confusing. I think rereading this book would allow me to enjoy it to what this book is. 😉 where will I find the time though?

Good morning, folks! Here is my reading wrap-up for December. I finished 12 books last month, putting me at 123 for the year. It was the first year that I set a reading goal for myself, so I wasn't sure what would be a realistic number for me. Well l more than doubled my goal of 50, so clearly I underestimated myself. 😂 Did you set a yearly goal for yourself? Did you reach it?
.
Here are my yearly stats thanks to Good Reads:
• 46,205 pages across 123 books
• Shortest book: The Grownup by Gillian Flynn, 64 pages
• Longest book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling, 870 pages
• My average rating: 4.1 out of 5 stars
.
Here’s my breakdown for December:
• The Daughters of Ireland ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• NOS4A2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• Jacob T. Marley ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• Mistletoe and Murder ⭐️⭐️⭐️
• The Chalk Man ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• The Great Train Robbery ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• Christmas Days ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
• Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
• Gather ‘Round the Sound (not pictured) ⭐️⭐️
• The Phantom of the Opera ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
• Bone Gap ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
• Never Let You Go ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
My 2018 reading goal is set for 100 books. I plan to go back to my TBR Raffle when choosing my next read so I’ve plugged my entire TBR list into a raffle app on my phone. I’ll still be reading my books to review by their deadlines, and listening to audiobooks when I work (those will mainly be chosen based on what I have available on my audio apps) but all other books I’ll leave in the hands of the raffle. If I choose a book that’s part of a series then I will read the entire series before moving on.
.
Did you set a goal for yourself this year? How do you choose which book to read next?

14 books read this month making it 198 for the year. This was an incredible month of reading, Olsen Tomasula and Field are three fantastic contemporary authors, cream o crop, Maso and Young were remarkable reading experiences, might be my favorite I’ve read by Stein, talk about the mother of prose, and Brossard, dear, I’ve put you on the radar, really exceptional stuff. Highlights: The Book of Portraiture, The Art Lover, ULULU, Nietzche’s Kisses, and of course MMMD, all were great though, like really much so. Looking back, might be the best month of the year, hard to say, but it sure felt fluid, seamless. Kawabata’s Dandelions not pictured. Read Field, read Olsen, read Tomasula, read Maso, and the others, well, you know what to do.
