I haven't read for fun in ages so what better way to start up again than with my favourite author 😌📔 #pleasurereading #isabelallende #thejapaneselover

Estuvimos en la presentación del nuevo libro de #isabelallende #thejapaneselover #elamantejapones @atriabooks en la librería Barnes & Noble en Nueva York. Bill Goldstein fue el encargado de entrevistar a Isabel. Nuestro editor @armandocorrea y @jcastillobooks también acudieron para apoyar a la escritora. 📖

Un honor compartir con la escritora Isabel Allende la misma editorial @atriabooks @simonandschuster y la misma editora @jcastillobooks aquí en la presentación de #thejapaneselover

What's one of the more weird foods you've made and/or tried?


I ask this because last night I was with a club from school and we did something called the Crazy Cooking Challenge and my group ended up getting the main food as Chicken Hearts. I cooked and tried them, and surprisingly they weren't that bad! We found a recipe that was called Japanese-style Yakitori Chicken Hearts and based it off that. I know it's by far not the weirdest food but it was out there for me.

Yaaaas, no more nursing books for now. #isabelallende #thejapaneselover #bookworm

There was no questioning what my next read would be. Everyone knows how much I love Isabel's writing. ☕️ ~Also, I would like to send a virtual and loving hug to everyone today. Now that I know people from all parts of the globe, events like yesterday's hit closer to home. 💔

This is going to be my stay-sane-while-moving-twice book 😅 #readingaread #igreads #bookstagram #isabelallende #thejapaneselover #bookmark #bookdepository

This is such a wonderful and moving book @allendeisabel #thejapaneselover #mybookshelf 📚

I've been rustling around so much getting myself packed for some epic parental visiting, not to mention packing Rosa's bags for her adventure at @mathewyastremski 's house, I never really posted what the heck I'm reading now. I've always got more than one book on the go at a time, but this is my fictional fix of the moment.

“We are all born happy. Life gets us dirty along the way, but we can clean it up. Happiness is not exuberant or noisy, like pleasure or joy; it's silent, tranquil, and gentle; it's a feeling of satisfaction inside that begins with self-love” - - #isabelallende #thejapaneselover 🌐🏝🌑🌊

Abbiamo detto spesso che amarci è il nostro destino, ci siamo amati nelle vite precedenti e continueremo a incontrarci nelle vite future. O forse non c'è né passato né futuro e tutto accade simultaneamente nelle dimensioni infinite dell'universo. In questo caso, siamo insieme costantemente, per sempre.
È meraviglioso essere vivi. Abbiamo ancora diciassette anni, Alma mia. Ichi
We have often said that loving each other is our destiny, that we have loved each other in past lives and will go on meeting in lives to come. Or it may be there is no past or future, and everything takes place simultaneously in the universe’s infinite dimensions. If that is so, we remain together forever.

It’s fantastic to be alive. We are still seventeen years old, my Alma. Ichi

Ci sono libri che vanno centellinati, assimilati con cautela, passo dopo passo, vuoi per lo stile ostico o per le tematiche impegnative. E poi ci sono libri talmente comunicativi e densi di emozioni, che lasciarli per troppo tempo sul comodino è quasi doloroso. "L'amante giapponese" è proprio uno di quei romanzi che non si fa attendere. Il ritmo narrativo è incalzante e coinvolgente, la trama accattivante, i personaggi sono ben delineati e caratterizzati con consapevolezza dall'autrice, senza inutili e superflue  digressioni, ma senza nemmeno risultare superficiale.
Ho trovato parecchio interessante il breve squarcio storico relativo alla deportazione dei giapponesi nei campi di concentramento americani, evento che passa in secondo piano nelle vicende della seconda guerra mondiale.
In tre parole (o quasi): un romanzo che dà soddisfazioni. Da leggere!
TITOLO: L'amante giapponese

"I was unable to give up my security, and so I was trapped in convention." I tried to like this book but just didn't. This tale of a secret relationship between a rich Jewish woman and a poor Japanese gardener was marred by flat stereotyped characters, history dumping, and underdeveloped / implausible plot details. All of this did make for a lively book club discussion though! I've heard other books by Allende are better -- Anyone have one to recommend? 🌼

Excited for this Saturday because I've got a potluck brunch AND a potluck dinner planned 🍽 but first a peach smoothie bowl with more @westlafarmersmarket peaches, @salbachia Seeds, coconut flakes, and cinnamon on top 🍑 •

New reading. And one I read every year. Beach Music by Pat Conroy. "When I was in a kitchen I could no longer feel the pressure of the world on my shoulders; for me cooking has always been a high form of play, and teaching someone how to make a meal memorable was a combination of thrill and gift that I never tired of giving." Melodically spellbinding. Reminds me of living in the South. Also reading Happy People Read & Drink Coffee. And The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende (Just bought tickets to hear her in November.)
