I read this book years ago and honestly can’t remember a thing about it- except that I loved it. So it deserves a second turn! #booklist #books #bookstagram #wallylamb #shescomeundone #ineedanap #shouldbesleeping #readmore #talkless #reads

I’ve been making a conscious effort to use less plastic this year and this book from @penguinlifebooks is going to help me massively with my goal, as are the beeswax wraps (of which I own several and can confirm are amazing), in addition to my glass water bottle (hefty but pretty and so useful). I’m so intrigued to try this jar of toothpaste and the deodorant cream too; I assume I’ll know how well both work by how much distance people keep from me on the tube. According to Will McCallum, Head of Oceans at @greenpeaceuk and author of How to Give up Plastic, by 2050 there could be more plastic bottles in the ocean than fish, by weight, which is appalling, so I’m definitely going to do all I can to educate myself and attempt to #breakfreefromplastic .

I’d give anything to be back in my reading spot today instead of at work 😫
.
So far I am definitely intrigued by The Map of Salt and Stars, but I’m not far enough into the book to have much of a serious opinion just yet. Trying to plan out the last week of May and my reading goals. Hoping to squeeze in one more book before the end of the month after this one... we’ll see if that works out 🤷🏻‍♀️ how are your reading goals going for this month, book friends?

Presence by Amy Cuddy ...
🔅🔆🔅
“The opposite of powerlessness must be power, right? In a sense, that’s true, but it’s not quite that simple. The research I’ve been doing for years now joins a large body of inquiry into a quality I call presence. Presence stems from believing in and trusting yourself-your real, honest feelings, values, and abilities. That’s important, because if you don’t trust yourself, how can others trust you? Whether we are talking in front of two people or two thousand, interviewing for a job, negotiating for a raise, or pitching a business idea to potential investors, speaking up for ourselves or speaking up for someone else, we all face daunting moments that must be met with poise if we want to feel good about ourselves and make progress in our lives. Presence gives us the power to rise to these moments.” - Amy Cuddy in Presence

Changing our body language directly changes our body chemistry. Through the action of changing our posture, becoming aware of the way in which we carry ourselves, and the bodily poses we take on a regular basis, we are literally re-configuring our brains to cope the best they possibly can in any given situation. We are bringing the quality of presence into our bodies and minds. We are at peace with ourselves. We are in the present moment.
This powerful, thought-provoking, wonderfully readable book explores many fascinating aspects of the body-mind connection; shifting from research/experiments conducted by Amy Cuddy and others, to inspiring real-life personal stories of vulnerability and courage from the author as well as people from all over the world.
This book is amazing... must read!!! ✨
Thank you so much dearest @mikey.anne for sharing this book with me, (I don’t think it could’ve come into my life at a better time!) and thank you for reminding me of my own strength, confidence, poise, and presence... especially in those many moments when I feel anything but! You are magic and I love you much darling woman. ✨💛

#geekyglowreadsinspring Foxglove: Rainy Day Read- I feel like an Agatha Christie mystery is perfect rainy weather reading 🌧
.
I just planted some Foxglove flowers in my garden 😍 I love them and the big fuzzy bumblebees do too! 🐝 They are so pretty. I’m hoping to add a few more if I have the space.

🎪КАРУСЕЛЬ
📕Оценка: 4,5/5
~~~~~
•«...во всем мире безнравственны только те, у кого есть совесть»•
~~~~~
Испытываю какой-то необъяснимый восторг, когда вижу как Моэм мастерски сплетает паутину человеческих судеб! На этих страницах есть ирония, печаль, раскаяние, радость - все те чувства, которые превращают нашу жизнь в круговорот.
~~~
Его язык легкий, но не посредственный! Он красочный, много жизненных и таких знакомых рассуждений в речах персонажей.
Мэри Ли – та, которая связывает всех героев этой карусели, выступает резонёром, по-моему мнение.
Все те недостатки, на которые мы сами хотели указать и встряхнуть посильнее героев - все делает за нас мисс Ли. Она открывает своим друзьям глаза на их глупости и ошибки, причём её правда обличительна, бьет в сердце, но мисс Ли не стремится смягчить её, чем ещё больше располагает к себе.
~~~
Добродетель и греховность постоянно переплетаюсь на этих страницах, как змеи на кадуции. За что из этого мы получаем большее наказание? В каких дозах они должны сосуществовать, чтобы сделать человека счастливым, а не разрушить его жизнь? Эти вопросы автор позволяет разрешить читателю самому. Справедливость? А всяк ли получает по заслугам? Здесь есть пример того, как изворотливый лжец может получить все материальные блага, уважаемое положение в обществе, тогда как другой - искренний и душевный - страдает от собственной глупости.

Его герои молодёжно -возрастные. Как бы странно это не звучало.
Молодёжь Моэма - это те молодые люди, которые вылетели в большой мир и ищут своё место в нем. Именно о такой молодёжь идёт речь - когда у них внутренняя борьба с собой, и диссонанс между мнениями общества и своими стремлениями.
А возрастные - уже взрослые люди, которые неожиданно наступает на старые, как сам мир, грабли. Грабли эти ощутимо дают им в лоб, бьют по самолюбию и принципам, но именно благодаря им они что-то меняют в своей жизни.
~~~~~
Несмотря на большое количество персонажей, всё выглядит органично. Каждая история - это приоткрытая дверь чей-то души, которая раскрывает свои тайны. За это я и люблю Моэма - все герои, создаваемые им - абсолютно разные! Каждого хочется выслушать, хочется понять и узнать его.

THE HERETIC’S DAUGHTER by kathleen kent (historical fiction) perfectly evokes the fear, frenzy, & hardships of a dreadful period of our history + fierce familial love + powerful & poignant = 👍🏻

“And with every step I thought of my mother’s courage as she faced her judges. With every step I thought of her cleaving to the truth even as she fell the short distance of the rope. With every step I thought of her pride, her strength, her love.
And with every step I thought, I am my mother’s daughter, I am my mother’s daughter...”

If this is an accurate depiction of Anxiety and OCD then this book achieves what John Green wanted to achieve... however if it’s inaccurate then boo. As someone who really wants to start educating myself more on the various mental illnesses this is the first book of hopefully many on my way to comprehending mental illnesses and how I can be a better ally to those who suffer. With that said I’m taking suggestions! Any genre fiction or nonfiction I want to know what mental illness and why you found it informative. This book, thankfully didn’t have a #manicpixiedreamgirl but it was weak outside of the mental illness card, plot wise it’s lacking ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 from me, but if it’s accurate I’m willing to bump it up s notch!
