Happy #socksunday!
Do you sometimes wish the day had more than 24 hours? (I mean who doesn’t want more time for reading, right?) But seriously, there are so many things that I want to do, but I don’t have the time for it. I’ve been working on lesson plans most of the day, the workshop I went to this week was quite inspiring, but aaah I need more time to do all the things that I want to try out 🙈

Favorite thing that happened to you this weekend? I finished Josh & Hazel’s guide to not dating this morning and it was so good 🙌🏻❤️ .

Guys, look who's back. Sexy Goldblum making a welcome return to my feed. He's already ready with a pose. Such an attention whore this one.
🌻
#bookreadhappyhour - day 23. Comfort genre - I think Jurassic Park is such a great read. I tend to read so much "literary fiction" that it's always nice to read something that's not quite so realistic. I should do more reading for fun, really.
🌻
#grimdragon - day 23. Hold onto your butts - though not his best role, Samuel L is underrated in Jurassic Park. He's so much fun.

Stephen King said that books are uniquely portable magic, I thought I'd put that to test. 😉

I'm finally doing a Bookstagram Challenge! We'll see if I do all categories or where I end up but this challenge from @bookriot seemed like so much fun! Technically it's for June but I'm a rebel.

First theme is a shelfie and here is mine! The shelf itself are 4 sections of IKEAs Billy for books and 1 for movies (barely visible in the picture). We (my wife and I) have divided it into non fiction, poetry, comics and graphic novels, fiction for adults, young adults and teens, Harry Potter and lastly children's fiction.

We're obviously complete nerds as evidenced by my wife's Captain America shield that is resting against the shelf until we figure out how to get it onto the wall.

The sculptures seen in the shelf are made by my wife because she's pretty darn amazing. And the old looking books lying down are boxes for our bookmarks, book sleeves and such.

Plans for today? I’m headed to church, I need to take pictures, clean house, write a review, work on school stuff. Probably avoid some of that and take a nap...

Good morning booklings and happy Sunday!🖤 I had seriously such a wonderful day yesterday, but I barely got any sleep🙃 So I’m going to be tired for the rest of the day most likely... oh 🐳 I guess🤷🏻‍♀️ Also, these tiny cupcakes I got from the store are seriously DELICIOUS! They are caramel apple cupcakes and I love eating them while drinking tea at night!☕️🍎

QOTD: Easy question today! Paperback or Hardback?
.
.
.
.
Answer: I definitely prefer hardbacks because they are so much prettier in my opinion! But, I do love paperbacks when it comes to actually holding it and reading it, it’s just easier and more comfortable!📚🖤

BOOK REVIEW: The Immortals series by Alyson Noël🖤 I only own the first three of this series, and I can say, that I am absolutely in love with these books!🖤 I’m in desperate need to own the last three ASAP!😆 The genre of these novels is fantasy💕 Am I the only one that gets bothered by not placing the books in order when taking a bookish photo and then realizes it when the photo shoot is already over and you’re editing the photos? (not in this case thank goodness!) Because I do!🙋🏻‍♀️ I do it literally all the time and it kills me inside a little each time😆👍🏻 .
.
.
.
OVERVIEW: I will only give an overview of the first novel, Evermore, because I don’t want to give away any spoilers!🖤 “After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head - wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is - or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.” ~ Goodreads🖤

📕I loved Admission so much (especially when my own memories of admission were still fresh). I saw this book and picked it expecting equal satisfaction, but nope! It was bit of a let down - too typical of a love triangle where lady who has everything wanted to spice up her life
-
📗I like the familiarity of the locations author picked - at some point I was only following locations; they were my pacemakers
-
📘Hey, she ended up getting a rose name bred for her - so I guess you can call it something

✨The Autobiography of a Sex Worker by Nalini Jameela✨
.
.
Sex work is a taboo topic of discussion in social circles in India. Because of this the fundamentals rights and needs of sex workers do not get spoken about at all. How would you improve a situation if people do not speak about it at all? And situation of sex workers in our country need to improve. I would write that in bold and underline if I could on Instagram 🙄. Some enter this profession by choice, some by lack of options and some by force and trickery. There's a lack of understanding from their clients when it comes to issues like personal choice, health & protection.
The role of Police in their lives was what shocked me to the core. In case of arrests, the clients are always let go or can afford a bribe, while the sex worker is beaten up and/or made to pay bribe in "certain ways". This discrimination by people who are supposed to protect the law in our country left me very skeptical about their role in our society.

Nalini Jameela describes in the book the transitions in her life and what led her to make the choices that she made. She also tells us snippets of her interactions with other sex workers of the community. The attitude of clients and society in general towards these women are vividly portrayed in this book.
They are shunned by both the rich and the poor. Yet, it is elements of this very society, from young to old,  from powerful to ordinary men, irrespective of the financial power, that seek out these women as and when needed. This prompts me to believe that the society is very ready (whether they admit it or not) to talk about the fundamentals rights and needs of sex workers in our country.

#NewInMyShelfSunday has got me Celeste Ng! It was on Kindle Daily Deals this week and such deals rarely happen! (I am not justifying, I am stating what I thinm is a fact 😊) Who else finds kindle daily deals helpful... to the wallet? 😉😄 .
.
🌸I'm looking forward to a fresh new week! I hope everyone is too 💕 Last week of September, let's do this!

Happy Sunday! If you're a Hogwarts student and you had any kind of animal as a pet, what would it be? And what name would you give it?
I always think to have a snowy owl like Harry Potter as my pet and his name would be "Winter" or "Summer" 😂

“As i grow older, much older, I will experience many things, and I will hit rock bottom again and again. Again and again I will suffer; again and again I will get back on my feet. I will not be defeated. I won't let my spirit be destroyed.” (Mikage - Kitchen page 42)

Yoshimoto become another Japanese writer i adore right now after read those two stories in “Kitchen”. No wonder that her works were picked up by @Post_Santa as one of collection #BeyondHaruki.

This book consist of two stories “Kitchen” and “Moonlight Shadow”. No relation between these two, but it have same breath and spirit. Maybe it seems that many stories from Japanese writers have same “recipe” that contain element of love, despair, loss, tragic death, mourning and the struggle afterward. I found the same stories about life and relationship in Japanese family after watched some movie : “Still Walking” (2008), “Like Father, Like Son” (2013), "Our Little Sister” (2015) from great Director Hirokazu Kore’eda (huge thanks to @dedaydedi) and also “Her Love Boils Bathwater” (2016) movie recommendation from @casualreader4.
.
.
Even though all stories gave similar element, but it gave me different feel after taste it. Sometimes feeling sad and desperate, but relief at the end. It like you just receive a bit of power to facing struggle in daily life..
.
.
This book gave me the same feeling.
.
.
.
Yoshimoto wrote in “Afterword” part like this : “To all the readers who do not know me personally, who were kind enough to take the trouble to read my small effort, I know no greater happiness than that it may have cheered you, even a little. Surely we will meet someday, and until that day, I pray that you will live happily”

Will you ?
