  • Un jour, une citation: 🇫🇷 Elle avait pris ce pli dans son âge enfantin
De venir dans ma chambre un peu chaque matin;
Je l’attendais ainsi qu’un rayon qu’on espère;
Elle entrait et disait: «Bonjour mon père»;
Prenait ma plume, ouvrait mes livres s’asseyait
Sur mon lit, dérangeait mes papiers, et riait,
Puis soudain s'en allait comme un oiseau qui passe.
Alors, je reprenais, la tête un peu moins lasse,
Mon oeuvre interrompue, et, tout en écrivant,
Parmi mes manuscrits je rencontrais souvent
Quelque arabesque folle et qu'elle avait tracée,
Et mainte page blanche entre ses mains froissée
Où, je ne sais comment, venaient mes plus doux vers.
Victor Hugo "Les contemplations"
🇮🇹 Lei aveva l’abitudine quando era una bambina
di venire un po’ nella mia camera ogni mattina.
Io la attendevo così come un raggio di sole in cui si spera;
Lei entrava e diceva: Buongiorno, mio piccolo papà!
Prendeva la mia piuma, apriva i miei libri, si sedeva
sul mio letto, disordinava le mie carte, e rideva
poi improvvisamente se ne andava come un uccello che passa.
Allora io riprendevo, con la testa un po’ meno stanca,
la mia opera interrotta, e immerso nella scrittura,
tra i manoscritti ritrovavo spesso
qualche schizzo che lei aveva disegnato,
e varie pagine bianche sgualcite dalle sue mani
dove, non so come, mi uscivano i più dolci versi.
Victor Hugo "Le contemplazioni"

  • “Margot would say she belongs to herself. Kitty would say she belongs to no one. And I guess I would say I belong to my sisters and my dad, but that won’t always be true. To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted. To really be somebody’s, and to have them be mine.” – Jenny Han, To All the Boys I've Loved Before ~ • Happy Sunday afternoon! ✨ I think you can all guess what movie I’m watching this evening right? I still haven’t read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and I really want to! The series has been on my TBR for so long, so hopefully I’ll finally start reading them this month. I’ve watched the movie a couple of times now and it’s just so good! I heard they’re also filming a sequel, so exciting 💛 what books are on your TBR for this month?

  • This is a book I haven’t read in YEARS. Decades, really. And I wonder if my opinion would be different if I reread it now. ••• It seems like the type of book that depending upon when you read it you may come away with very different opinions. ••• I think bc I read it when I was a teenager (maybe even a preteen???) that I’ll still have a soft spot for it. It’s another book I’m excited to share with my daughter.

  • Winner of the National Book Award when it was first published in 1964, Herzog traces five days in the life of a failed academic whose wife has recently left him for his best friend. Through the device of letter writing, Herzog movingly portrays both the internal life of its eponymous hero and the complexity of modern consciousness. Herzog is a man seeking balance, trying to regain a foothold on his life. Thrown out of his ex-wife’s house, he retreats to his abandoned home in Ludeyville, a remote village in the Berkshire mountains. Here amid the dust and vermin of the disused house, He begins scribbling letters to family, friends, lovers, colleagues, enemies, dead philosophers, ex- Presidents, to anyone with whom he feels compelled to set the record straight. The letters, we learn, are never sent. They are a means to cure himself of the immense psychic strain of his failed second marriage, a method by which he can recognize truths that will free him to love others and to learn to abide with the knowledge of death. In order to do so he must confront the fact that he has been a bad husband, a loving but poor father, an ungrateful child, a distant brother, an egoist to friends, and an apathetic citizen.

  • 10. Dezember ⭐ Die Geschichte von Andreas, wie er Leni aus Momo vorgelesen hat, ließ Kristin mit einem warmen Herzen nach Hause gehen. Das Buch passte zu Leni. Momo war zwar ein armes Mädchen, konnte den Menschen aber gut zuhören und ihnen ihre Zeit schenken. Nachdem Kristin die Haustür aufgeschlossen hatte, schien die Realität sie wieder einzuholen. Der Anrufbeantworter auf dem Regal blinkte, in der Küche lallte der Radio und ihre Schulsachen vom Vormittag lagen noch immer verstreut im Flur. Warum konnte sie nicht in der magischen Welt der Bücher bleiben? Kristins Eltern saßen schon am Küchentisch beim Abendessen. Es gab Pasta mit Ferti-Sugo. Ein Zeichen dafür, dass auch sie von Lenis Tod mitgenommen waren. Kristin Vater war nämlich leidenschaftlicher Koch und ihre Mutter Ernährungsberaterin. „Hattest du einen schönen Nachmittag?“, fragte Kristins Mutter, ehe sie sich der Bedeutung dieser Worte klar wurde. Entschuldigend sah sie zu Kristin. „Danke, ich muss noch viel lernen und esse vielleicht später etwas.“ Schnell verflüchtigte sie sich aus der Küche mit den ungewohnten Gerüchen hoch in ihr Zimmer. Morgen würde sie einen Geschichtetest schreiben. Das Buch dazu lag seit fast einer Woche unberührt auf ihrem Schreibtisch. Kristin setzte sich, schaute es eindringlich an und feuerte es dann mit gewaltiger Wucht gegen die Wand. Jetzt waren ihre Tränen nicht mehr aufzuhalten und sie rutschte vom Sessel unter ihren Schreibtisch, wo sie die Hände um die Knie schlang und endlich weinen konnte. #liebezumschreibenadvent #liebezumschreiben #booklove #lesen #bücherratte #lesewurm #bookshelf #bookishlove #lesesucht #buchblogger #autorenleben #schreiben #bücherregal #bookstagram #booksofintagram #bookstagram #adventkalender #weihnachtsgeschichte #geschichtenimadvent #decemberstories #christmasstories #advent #adventzauber #weihnachten #christmas #dezember

  • Do you enjoy being an adult? . (Personal post) . it was the time when i believed in fairytales and superheroes. waited for hogwarts letter and peter pan by the window for many nights to take me home. i had little friends scattered on the floor of my room, books on the bedside table, happiness inside my heart and never had to force myself to sleep. i believed in wishes and dreams to come true the next time even if i didn't get them at the moment when i wanted. i always had hope. i always believed that everything will be fine. but it's not the same anymore. i sit by the window and all i see is the empty roads and shallow hearts walking around aimlessly. i don't want to close my eyes for i fear my demonic heart that would haunt me if i sleep. the worst part about adulting is not the loneliness or sadnesses that comes with it but the hopelessness that asks me if i ever would be that happy again. © Fathima Ashab

  • What's the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard someone say out loud? . . . My boardmate says "I accidentally picked the nose of the guy beside me on public transpo" like OHMYGOD SERIOUSLY I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD! She unintentionally put her two fingers on both nostrils of her seat mate while untangling her arms from her backpack. After she removed it, her fingers were stuck somewhere 🤔 oh Lord 😮. I wouldn't believe at first, but, it was true 😓 -- Good evening, lovelies! Enjoying the night so far? I'm getting sleepy though. Wish you all a good night.

  • Questi sono i due romanzi che ho concluso lo scorso weekend. Sono entrambe due letture speciali a modo loro. - L'uomo del labirinto 5⭐ Il romanzo di Donato Carrisi è stato un acquisto impulsivo e si è rivelato un thriller psicologico molto intrigante che mi ha fatto venire voglia di leggere anche gli altri romanzi dell'autore. - Without Merit 3,5⭐ Questo secondo romanzo invece è scritto dall'autrice che, da tre anni a questa parte, è diventata la mia preferita. Come mi succede spesso, lo avevo preordinato, mi era arrivato persino in anticipo rispetto alla data di uscita, ma era rimasto a prendere polvere in libreria. Avevo sentito un po' di pareri contrastanti a riguardo e credo fosse questo a frenarmi. Ora che l'ho letto posso dire di pensarla in modo ambivalente, da una parte infatti mi è piaciuto, mentre dall'altra mi ha lasciata confusa e delusa. Per entrambi i romanzi ho scritto una mini recensione su Goodreads e nelle storie, le potete trovare anche salvate nelle storie in evidenza sotto "Updates". Per il romanzo di Carrisi sto valutando anche se scrivere una recensione completa sul blog. Se vi interessa magari scrivetemelo e la farò. Spero che anche voi siate riusciti a recuperare qualche lettura nel weekend. Vi auguro buona settimana 😘

" dedi ve Dawson'ın sessizliğini onay kabul ederek dövmeli elindeki eldiveni çekip çıkardı. "Buna bakınca... Bilmiyorum, " dedi dudaklarını ısırarak.

  • REVIEW: I purchased Dumplin' by Julie Murphy over 2 years ago and totally forgot about it. Hello, never ending TBR. Then I noticed it was a movie on Netflix with Jennifer Aniston. I read the book on Saturday and watched the movie on Sunday. . Willowdean "Dumplin'" Dixon is the daughter of a former beauty queen in Clover City, Texas. She is a self-proclaimed fat girl who wants to reclaim her confidence. She decides to enter the Miss Clover City beauty pageant and her mother, a former winner, just so happens to run it. . Well, I don't know the author's intention, so I'm unsure if this was meant to be a body positive book. However, I think the author touched on a lot of great topics. . Willowdean struggles with her body and her worth. She meets a cute boy who takes interest in her, but she doesn't want to date him. She doesn't want to be judged by other people who will look at them and wonder why they are together. . Her beautiful bestie enters the pageant with her and Willowdean freaks out. She is upset because her friend could win and that's not the point of this particular revolution. But Ellen, the bestie, points out that Willowdean can't say who can join the revolution. . Fair point, Ellen! That's the beauty of the book. It points out the hypocrisy of body image issues. It doesn't matter what size you are, you almost definitely have an issue with your body. Thanks, society! Ellen feels she doesn't fit in the beauty pageant world, just like Willowdean. But Willowdean only sees fat and not fat. . I could go on forever! My rating is 3.5 stars. . . . #books #bookstagram #ilovebooks #audiobooks #mustreads #beautifulbooks #readmorebooks #allthebooks #readingtime #booklife #bookphoto #bookishlove #bookstoread #reading #bookgram #readersofinstagram #igreads

Whether your looking for something nice or something a little naughty, I’ve got you covered with my 25 days of naughty and nice holidays reads! . . 📖The Good, The Bad and the Duke by @jannamacgregor . . Snag a copy 👉🏻 The Good, the Bad, and the Duke (The Cavensham Heiresses Book 4) . . 👇🏻BLURB👇🏻 . . A lady with a noble mission. A duke looking for redemption. A forbidden love that cannot be denied, in The Good, The Bad, and The Duke by Janna MacGregor. Lady Daphne Hallworth is ready to celebrate the holidays with her family. But when they accidentally leave her home alone, Daphne uses the time to work on her dream—opening a home for unwed mothers. But her quest isn’t problem-free: She’s in a battle to win the property for the home against her brother’s best friend-turned-enemy, Paul Barstowe, Duke of Southart. And that’s not all: someone has stolen her personal diary, which holds secrets that could devastate her family. Daphne has always harbored private feelings for the man her family scorns…though perhaps striking a bargain with the handsome Duke will solve both their problems? Paul, long considered good for nothing, aims to open a hospital to honor his brother and restore his reputation. So when a conflict over the land brings him straight into Daphne’s life, they make a deal: He will help her find her diary if Daphne can change her family’s opinion of him. But before he can win her family’s affection, he has to win hers first. Maybe love was the answer to their family feud all along? . . #thegoodthebadandtheduke #historicalromance #nicelist #booknerdigan #bookstagram #bookobsessed #bookquotes #bookpassion #bookishlove #greatreads #alwaysreading #booksofinsta #igreads #instaread #readersofinstagram #shelflove #bookreview #litfic #whattoread #igbooks #sharingiscaring #addittoyourtbr #holidayread
