The Swan Thieves by #elizabethkostova
📘📓📘📓📘📓📘📓📘📓⠀

This book had such a transformative affect on my life choices and awoke a curiosity of the people behind paintings.⠀

I recorded a 60-Second Spoiler-free book talk over on my youTube channel (link in bio, ⚡️live⚡️at 7pm 🇬🇧). ⠀
Official blurb: ⠀

Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life - solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient.⠀

Desperate to understand the secret that torments this genius, Marlowe embarks on a journey that leads him into the lives of the women closest to Oliver and a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.⠀

Kostova's masterful new novel travels from American cities to the coast of Normandy; from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love. The Swan Thieves is a story of obsession, history's losses, and the power of art to preserve hope. ⠀

This is probably one of my favorite stories about Dracula! I was immediately sucked into this story, and this book is a 26hour listen. I could not stop! I NEEDED to know if they found Vlad Dracule or if he remained a mystery! So many delicious layers and intrigues the best I can compare it to is The Ninth Gate meets the DaVinci Code meets National Treasure, but we’re talking about horror and Vampires. I highly recommend this book! Spectacular ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 from me, and I look forward to rereading it in the future as I’m sure I missed some clues early on!

📔 #sundaybook • The Historian • by Elizabeth Kostova🚞🛤👿 This is a great start of the fall, when darkness is so much more touchable. It is moderately fun to dwell into a scary book.. Ok, this one is not that scary but rather intriguing.
This said on the back cover: "Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to ''My dear and unfortunate successor''.." And The Times has a short review: "Obsession, possession, and the struggle against the brevity of life...Kostova captures, beautifully, the turn on a dime from light to dark." 🌌🍂🍁🗝
At the end, the author answers some q&a and it is ⭐. • • Sidenote; the book starts in a small town in Europe that I love and adore to the moon and back!💛 🏰

Are there books you keep meaning to read and never quite manage to pluck from your shelf? This is one of mine, bought at least two years ago and shamefully still unread.
It ticks all my boxes - dark and rich and bloody 😈 Maybe if I leave it in plain sight I might actually make it an October read.
📖
Today has been very chilled. From reading in bed with the rain beating down this morning, to a walk through a wet but sunlit forest this afternoon. Hope yours have been equally as relaxing, instafam! 📖

Por fin lo terminé.
Y WOW.
Mi reseña?
Es un libro de vampiros, si. Pero es mucho más que eso.
Es un libro de investigaciones, es un libro de diferencias culturales. Es un libro de misterios, de historia. Es un libro de libros y gente sabía. Es un libro de supersticiones. Un libro de pueblos antiguos, su gente, sus creencias y miedos. Es un libro de aventuras y anécdotas increíbles. Es un libro que filtra una historia de amor. Es un libro de datos, lugares, fechas increíbles. Es un libro de hechos crueles pero reales, que la gente se niega a creer o tilda de "leyendas". Habla de Drácula. Pero no el Drácula romántico de Bram Stocker, sino el Drácula sanguinario, cruel, atormentado por sus enemigos e implacable gobernante. Pero sobre todo el Drácula sabio y ávido de sabiduría.
Es un libro que te impacta y atrapa, desde que lo abres hasta que das vuelta a la última página, con los ojos completamente abiertos, y diciendo: QUÉ?!
Maravilla de libro.

Lots of readers and editors dislike prologues in books. Is it necessary? What is it saying that you can't say in chapter 1? Generally it's intended to set a mood in advance of the story before plunging into plot and character, but sometimes it just feels like an unnecessary delay.

Well, all I can say after opening #Elizabethkostova's #theshadowland is that all prologues should aim to pack a punch like this.

"You think your pain and your #heartbreak are #unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was #books that taught me that the things that #tormented me most were the very things that #connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” – James Baldwin

#currentlyreading I’m taking another soirée into Shakespeareland! This time it’s #kingjohn and it’s performed by a full cast! I can not wait! I’ve been working my way through my Unread Shelf this year and it has proven to be very rewarding. In other news my current audiobook on #thelibbyapp is #thehistorian by #elizabethkostova and it is ROCKING my world. I am loving every minute of this 26 hour audiobook.

If the stars are all in alignment or at least shining brightly, I think one can be a #Sith and an #Illuminati at the same time! 🧐🧐🧐
