Leituras concluídas 🦑: outubro (07.10.17)
releitura de "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” JK Rowling
A leitura #50 de 2017 foi a releitura de um dos meus livro preferidos de Harry Potter ♥️
Comecei o mês de outubro com um presente para mim. Percebi que ao invés de ler algum livro de alguma meta eu queria na real reler um livro que eu amava, e o 3 do Harry Potter seria minha próxima leitura então não resisti e peguei, não me arrependo uma gota. Com eu amo esse livro.
É nesse ponto da série onde a história começa a ficar séria e aquela mágica inocente dos primeiros livros começa a dar espaço a um história mais complexa e cheia de facetas e novas crenças. É nesse momento que começa a se desfazer a confiança cega nos “adultos” ou nos sistemas burocráticos adultos. Azkaban já não é puro mal. O ministério não é mais puramente correto. É onde o “mal” e o “bom” começam a se misturar e a ver que o mundo tem muitos nos de cinza e que as coisas não são o que aparentam ser.
É nesse livro que a história e seus personagens começam a crescer e a enfrentar a vida de cara. Não são mais crianças. E que livro fantástico. Tudo nele é incrível e te toca com uma sensibilidade que só Harry Potter sabe ter. Vejo como tive sorte de crescer junto com essa história e ter lido em fases da minha vida que correspondiam ao grau de amadurecimento dos personagens. Percebo o que HP é e sempre representará na minha formação. Ler HP é entrar em contato com a minha criança interna, é cuidar dela, é perceber que o mundo, apesar de tantas e tantas desilusões, ainda tem uma inocência de criança.
Ah ♥️ ⠀
5/5 ✨ ♥️
I had this one on my kindle for a good long while, and I was blazing through romance at the end of the year to meet my Goodreads goal. Most of All You had some very beautiful and touching parts. There was real trauma and repercussions for both main characters, and the love that formed was truly addicting to read about. However, there was just a little too much unbelievability. This was a love story, and not a smut story, so I will definitely be reading another from this author.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ for this beautiful book
Seven months ago, I decided to start a separate Instagram @whatsallyreadnext completely dedicated to my love of books! 📚 I wanted a forum to post reviews, share what books I've been reading and discuss them with other book lovers.
What I didn't realise that seven months later, I would have over 1500 followers, get to know some lovely people from the bookstagram world and have people actually looking forward to my posts everyday! 😄 It's a fantastic community and I wish I'd known about it sooner!

Thanks for sharing this great quote and picture, @creating.a.heavenly.haven 😘😘
Happy weekend guys! Apologies for being so absent over the last few days. I’ve been so sick! I don’t think I’ve ever slept so much in my life! I’ll be catching up on comments ASAP! .
I’ve heard so many amazing things about The Bronze Horseman that I had to grab a copy for myself. I’m hoping that it will be my next read. Have you guys read it? .
Synopsis: A magnificent epic of love, war and Russia from the international bestselling author of TULLY and ROAD TO PARADISE Leningrad 1941: the white nights of summer illuminate a city of fallen grandeur whose palaces and avenues speak of a different age, when Leningrad was known as St Petersburg. Two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha, share the same bed, living in one room with their brother and parents. The routine of their hard impoverished life is shattered on 22 June 1941 when Hitler invades Russia. For the Metanov family, for Leningrad and particularly for Tatiana, life will never be the same again. On that fateful day, Tatiana meets a brash young man named Alexander. The family suffers as Hitler's army advances on Leningrad, and the Russian winter closes in. With bombs falling and the city under siege, Tatiana and Alexander are drawn inexorably to each other, but theirs is a love that could tear Tatiana's family apart, and at its heart lies a secret that could mean death to anyone who hears it. Confronted on the one hand by Hitler's vast war machine, and on the other by a Soviet system determined to crush the human spirit, Tatiana and Alexander are pitted against the very tide of history, at a turning point in the century that made the modern world. .
The first book from our #bookmail haul (which I showed in my post yesterday) that I’m super excited to tell you about is Little Bear Needs Glasses. I love the concept, and the illustrations are just way too cute! 😍 My toddler is having such a blast with this book already, and keeps wanting to read it over and over again! 🙌🏻
Little Bear trips over things, makes mistakes, and simply cannot see very well. His friends are worried, so they all begin to offer that he try on their glasses to see if they’re the right fit for him... except none of them are. Little Bear discovers that he needs glasses that are all his own, in order to see just right.
What makes this book SO much fun are all of the different little reusable glasses stickers that you put on Little Bear to “try on” to help him find his perfect pair!
There’s actually another book just like this one called All Better! which is about some animal friends who keep getting boo-boos, so it has little band-aid stickers that you help fix them up with... and we’ve definitely added it to our book wishlist now! 😉📚♥️
Another great quote from my morning reading. Sounds pretty easy right? Often when we have a talent for something, it’s easy to not let the world know out of fear. If you’re good at something, tell the world about it. How can you help the world if they don’t know what you can do? #fridaymood#lettheworldknow#neverhideyourtalent

Em "Um perfeito cavalheiro", Julia Quinn consegue descrever os sentimentos dos personagens de maneira real, pura e bonita. É um livro apaixonante.
Benedict e Sophie se mostraram um dos casais mais encantadores que já li, amei demais esses dois. E torci muito por eles.
Livro mais que recomendado!

Nota: 5/5 + ❤
Hello @theenchantedbookshop. My name is Lori and I would be delighted to represent your wonderful shop. I’m an avid reader and lover of #allthingsbookish from East Texas. I’m a fairly new #bookstagrammer but I’ve had a blast getting to know fellow #bookenthusiasts here on IG. 📚
I love getting others excited about books whether it’s through my words, photos, or sharing fun #bookmerch . I visited your shop right after Christmas and got a great deal on some beautiful #bookmarks . Thank you for hosting this #TEBrepsearch2 . I look forward to sharing more of your beautiful products in the future. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
There are certain things in life that are meant to be savored, they say. I say, we should savor as many things & situations as we can. We should find beauty in small things and appreciate it to the fullest. •
My library holds some books that are meant to be savored too. Books I just don't want to read in rush, while trying to achieve my #Goodreads challenge. Nope. This is one of them. Tell me about yours! 💫
Hallo @spreadthebooklove ! Ik ben Acta Fabula Est (Lieselotte) uit België! Ik volg jullie site/Instagram al een tijdje en ben altijd onder de indruk van de nieuwe producten die jullie lanceren. Ook in mijn lokale boekhandel spot ik jullie producten en dan is het toch altijd moeilijk om aan de verleiding te weerstaan. Mijn favoriete product is een boekenlegger waar Fight Evil - Read Books op geschreven staat. Veel succes met jullie zoektocht naar een REP! #bookloveREP
Today’s post is inspired by and the information provided by @sarasreadingdiary - she created the #readforwomen hashtag.
In 1918 on the 6th February, The Representation of The People Act was passed in Great Britain and Ireland. For the first time, woman had a vote. The right to vote came with restrictions but it was a start!
On 8th March (which also happens to be the day before my birthday 😉) it’s International Women’s Day. A day to celebrate women 🎉
So bookishly, for the months of Feb & March, Sara suggested we read only books written by women writers, or at least make an effort during those months to read more women authors than normal. It’s not a challenge, there’s no prompts, it’s a celebration of women in literature, so if you’re joining in, share your posts using the hashtag #readforwomen .
I love this idea and will be joining in for sure! And I’ll be kicking of February with a readalong of Small Great Things by Picoult. Pictured are some other books I’d like to read. I do have some blogging commitments and an IT readalong in March so I will read a few books by male authors but otherwise it’ll all be books by women authors!
QOTD: even if it’s just for one of the two months, are you going to join in? Are there any books by women authors you particularly want to read?
Oh my goodness THIS BOOK. I am one of those people who absolutely believes in the power of music…. to inspire, to heal, to convey emotions when you are at a loss for words. Music moves me in a way that nothing else does. So when I saw The Music Shop by @rachelcjoyce as a choice for @bookofthemonth, it was a no brainer for me that it would be going in my book box. This book is a gorgeous testament about the power of music to connect us and heal our brokenness. I sat down with it late in the evening and did not move from my spot until I had turned the last page. I underlined and notated all over the pages of this book -- there are so many amazing quotes scattered throughout this charming and lyrical work. 🎼
The story begins in the late 80s and centers around Frank, a lonely but kind man whose passion for vinyl records knows no bounds and who has been blessed with the gift of being able to select the exact album that a person needs to listen to at that particular moment in their life. While the rest of the world is taking the leap into the digital age of CDs, Frank stubbornly clings to his vinyl records and the deteriorating neighborhood that he so dearly loves. One morning, a beautiful and mysterious woman enters his store and both their lives are changed forever.
This book just made my heart swell... I loved the wonderfully quirky characters and the timeless message that "where words fail, music speaks" (Hans Christian Anderson). This is a must read for music lovers and for anyone who has ever felt so saddled by their emotional baggage that they think they can not possibly be loved. ALL THE STARS for The Music Shop. #music#readwithus#bookclub#alwaysreading
GOOD MORNING TO ME!! YALL THIS COVER IS SO GORGEOUS 😍😍😍 it’s def my fav from the series wow wow wow. .
Release Date: 9/18/18
In this third installment in the #1 bestselling Stalking Jack the Ripper series, a luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of scandal, madness, and horror when passengers are murdered one by one...with nowhere to run from the killer.
Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they're delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.
But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea. It's up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with all clues pointing to Audrey Rose as the next victim, can she unravel the mystery before she unwittingly stars in the killer's horrifying finale?
Firstly, I'm sorry for the terrible edit. For some reason I didn't take my current reads with me when I did my beach shoot. So, behold! Old school edits from when doing something like this first became a thing!
My rating: 3/5 ⭐⭐⭐
This book was weird to rate: it was better than other celebrity memoirs I'd given 3 stars to, but not as great as the one I'd given 4 stars to. I also had to keep reminding myself to stop expecting the voice of Lorelai Gilmore to take over the book (whoops!). Perhaps this book (and I feel the same about Anna Kendrick's) is just better to listen to the audiobook than to actually read it. It wasn't bad or boring, per say, but I had higher hopes (always - and I have learned my lesson I just can't seem to lose hope). There are about 13 chapters in this book, and I only really loved the last 3: a short chapter about Parenthood (which could've & should've been longer), a chapter on Lauren's thoughts about the modern world and advice she'd give younger people through her alter ego "Old Lady Jackson" (which was great! Way less annoying than Lily Collins's never-ending advice and wisdom from her book), and lastly, what it was like to do the Gilmore Girls reunion (which was great but not surprisingly - not as detailed as I would've liked*). *(I'm not (that) delusional, I wasn't expecting gossip or juicy behind-the-scenes secrets or a minute-by-minute account of what it was like. Just... More.)
Other things Lauren writes about is life before she was famous (duh), struggling through college (surprising), struggling to become an actress (always), random stories and things she's learned (again, always), and what it was like doing Gilmore Girls the first time - a surprisingly short chapter, which is understandable, but still a bit unfortunate.
Maybe I'm upset because half the point of this memoir was to illustrate the full circle between Graham's big break and doing its revival 9 years later. I mean "from Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls" stands out more on the cover of this book more than its actual title. I know I'm venting and rambling for no real reason & if you're reading this I'm sorry that you are! But yeah, these are my thoughts on ...
I’ve got a lot swirling in my head with everything I need to do, so this weekend I plan out everything that needs to happen between now and the end of March. How do you approach planning when things start piling up?
"SHE HAS MY HEART.
SHE HAS IT ALL." .
Perfect ending to amazing series. I cried, I swooned (oh Romeo Romeo) I laughed... so many emotions ... Pure happiness I felt after this read.
If you haven't read the Hashtag Series make sure you do. You will fall in love with these characters as much as I have.
The Hashtag Series Book 7
That’s what happens when you get married.
Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.
I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.
I can’t have happily ever after, know why?
Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing. Someone.
Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I have on the fraying rope of that happily ever after will snap right in my face.
In our face.
I can’t let that happen. No matter what.
Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.

Evening, Booklanders 🦄. How is your weekend going? 🦄
Here is the thing; I can be quite vain, and the new covers for the Grisha trilogy were just so pretty and shiny, and I couldn’t help but buy them all! (Cover buys, anyone? 😂) So I have been marathoning this trilogy for a week now and I thought I would share with all of you what I thought of Shadow and Bone.
A solid 4 out of 5 stars; because to hell with it I absolutely loved this book. •
It’s been a while since I read a fantasy novel that was captivating, enchanting, full of plot-twists, action-packed, AND with relatable characters (which was the best part).
The plot was great, and you kind of have a feeling you know where it’s going and you may have a feeling that it’s cliche; but you are always wrong and Leigh Bardugo stirs the ship somewhere else (or maybe I am just that gullible). However, the one thing I didn’t like was that it was a bit slow-paced at the beginning, but there’s that mark that you are going to cross and then you won’t put the book down.
The writing style was also pretty good, maybe not poetic, but it had its own perks. For example, the prologue and epilogue were absolutely fascinating, and if you link their words together; the whole novel will feel like a big circle and you’ll feel like you are back where you started (but it’s a good thing here, I promise). Also, it was quite a surprise to discover that the turning point in this book happened exactly in the middle of it (just do the math), I don’t know if anyone cares about that, but I loved the vibes of it.

QOTD: If you have read Shadow and Bone, what did you think of it? 🦄
Any cookbook lovers or foodies out there? I purchased each of GP’s cookbooks as soon as they released and they are always my go-to answer when I want to prepare something healthy and tastes good. But, I do find some of the ingredients a bit fussy for everyday mom’s like me.⠀
Do you have a favourite go-to cookbook?
