I've finished off Frankl's 'Man's search for meaning'.
'What was really needed was a fundamental change in our attitude towards life...It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.' This is the most impressive section I found in the book.
The author himself was once in concentration camps during the world war 2. And this fact makes the whole words more impressive.
By the way, when ever I read something written about someone's predicament, horrible crimes and the like, I wonder why there is evil in the world. To find an answer to this question, I'll continue reading books.

DOLARES DE ARENA “[Libro] uno es un retrato tóxico del amor, no sólo por una persona sino por un pueblo que se convierte en una de las más hermosas prisiones. En [la película] retrata la toxicidad amorosa con más calidez a través de sus personajes y el ambiente visual lo crea con las situaciones y la música. "Dólares de Arena" es más una adaptación de una bachata de Ramón Rocrdero que del libro de Pancrazi. Ambos retratos son dos extraordinarias joyas."
¡Gracias @orsan11! 📚
📚 *Cheesy book related make up product ahead*💄
Looook what I found! My limited edition Twilight Saga palette by @lusciouscosmetics (a cruelty free & vegan brand) I don’t remember when it launched but I’m guessing it was sometimes after the second movie came out. It came in a metallic make pouch with a metallic eye pencil. All these years and I still haven’t used it 😅 For me it’s more of a memorabilia than a make up palette. I think I swatched couple of the eye shadows once and they were really rich and highly pigment. They have some really nice products. Got my first set of brushes from them when they first launched, still going strong ✌🏻
Kupa Altılısı Kitap Yorumu|
Yılın okuduğum ikinci kitabı 😝 Niye yorumu bu kadar geç geldi hiçbir fikrim yok 😶 Bu aralar bu tarz kitaplar okuduğum için bu tarz kitaplardan sıkılmaya başladım.Ama yine de kitapla ilgili pek bir sıkıntım yok.
Bu kitabı o kadar çok merak ediyordum ki asidi derecede beğeneceğim bir kitap olacak diye düşünmüştüm.Evet beğendim ama o kadar da fazla değil.Karakterlerle ilgili bir sorun da bulamadım ama çok samimi gelmediler,Jay dışında 😂❤
Kitap çok akıcıydı hemen bitiveriyor ama ben hemen bitiremedim.Sınav haftasından dolayı 😥
Ana karakterimiz Jay illüzyonist olduğu için ve kitapta bununla ilgili olduğu için illüzyonlar vardı.Her ne kadar çok fazla numaralar olmasa da illüzyon olayının beni pek çekmediğini farkettim 😂🤷🏻♀️
Bazı yerler Jay-Matilda çiftinin çok özeline girilmişti ve oraları atlayarak okudum açıkçası.O kısımlar çok hoşuma Ayrıca kitapta o çok beklediğimiz sondaki intikam asırı cezbedici değildi.Daha farklı bir şeyler beklemiştim 😶🤷🏻♀️
En sevdiğim kısımlardan biri Jay'in altılı dövmesini açıklamasıydı.
Kitabı genel olarak sevsem de çok beğenmedim.Ama önerebilirim bazı yerleri okurken çok eğlendim 😂💘
Konusunu yazmakta çok sıkıntı çektiğim için arka kapağı bırakıyorum bu seferlik,kusura bakmayın 😟💕
Arka Kapak Yazısı 💫
Öne çıkın ve Jay Fields'la tanışın. İllüzyonist. Mentalist. Hilebaz. Ben üçgenler halinde düşünürüm, siz düz çizgiler halinde. Ben masayı gösteririm ve sizi bunun bir sandalye olduğuna ikna ederim. Göz yanılsaması, el çabukluğu, hedef şaşırtma. Ben kandırırım ve dolandırırım. Ama en önemlisi, iyi bir gösteri sergilerim. Bütün dünya benim birini öldürdüğümü düşünüyor ama yanılıyorlar. Sabredin. Hepsi planın bir parçası. İstediğim şey intikam. Kendim için, onun için. Altımız için. O beni hatırlamaz ama her şeyin sebebi o. Bütün bunların sonundaki ödül. İrademe sahip olabilirsem tabii. Belki de ufak bir kaçamak yaparım, ufacık. Haydi, bir kart seçin. İçeri gelin ve şovu izleyin. Ellerime bakın. O kadar dikkatli bakarsınız ki görmeye odaklanmışken gerçekleşen şeyleri fark edemezsiniz. Dünyanızı orada, sahne ışıkları altında yıkacağım.
What is there to say about Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied, Sing that hasn’t already been said? It is beautiful, powerful, and heartbreaking. Ward’ s writing is mesmerizing. When you read her words, you immediately fall through the page and emerge in the Deep South.
Ward has created a novel that is magical realism at it’s best. It starts so slowly you don’t even notice it at first. Just a pinch here. Just a dash there. Until suddenly you find yourself surrounded. Of course a ghost is narrating this chapter. You wouldn’t have it any other way.
Sing, Unburied, Sing is an intimate portrait of a poor, black family struggling to survive in Mississippi. Jojo is a young boy trying desperately to protect his sister both from the world and from their absent, drug abusing mother. His mother, Leonie, is a woman addicted both to her boyfriend and to meth. No matter how hard she tries, she can never manage to put her children’s needs above her own.
Ward uses these characters to explore the racism, both blatant and inherit, that infects America. She explores the way violence against black bodies echoes out from the past and still scars our lives today. She highlights the privilege of white skin in subtile and quiet ways. Ward never tells. She shows.
In Sing, Unburied, Sing, there is no white and black. Only White (capital W) and Black (capital B). Race is a proper noun. An idea that has overarching consequences that bleeds into every interaction the characters have, from buying candy at a gas station to being pulled over by the police.
Her characters are complex, lovable, and deeply flawed. They have strong, clear voices that will stay with me for a long time. I love Jojo, Kayla, and Pop. I want to put them in my pocket and carry them around with me and protect them from the world.
Sing, Unburied, Sing is a novel that everyone should read. Important, thought provoking, and beautiful, buy this book, read this book, then tell someone else to read it! .
Next up for me is definitely going to be something light and fluffy. I'm pretty sure I have a book hangover. ❤️
My dear Bagginses and Boffins, Tooks and Brandybucks, Grubbs, Chubbs, Hornblowers, Bolgers, Bracegirdles and Proudfoots!
Yes, that would be me, the one yelling "Proudfeeeeet!"
When I’m not stealing a Mearas from the stables of Edoras, you can find me talking all things bookish on my Instagram. That’s right, my account isn’t exclusively Tolkien. At all. Yet, I somehow ended up as one of the original hosts of #MiddleEarthMarch . It feels like Pippin at the Council of Elrond: “Where are we going?”
Like many others, my Tolkien obsession started with Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The book wasn’t that popular where I am from, at least I had not heard of it. I had just turned 17, and Tolkien’s universe somehow sucked me in. I read the ‘Red Book of Westmarch’ in three days over Christmas and made anyone who dared to insult the Rohirrim my archenemy ;). No, seriously, don’t do it.
I obviously like all things Rohan (and Merry and Pippin), but my main love is The Hobbit. I firmly stick to “the 3 B's: Balin, Bard, and Bilbo”, though I’m strangely fascinated with the Nazgûl, too. I can’t wait to talk Middle-earth with all of you.
Forth Éorlingas, and “Where are we going?”
People come up to me all the time and never ask me..'So where did this whole 33ana3rdcurios bookshop come from' So I was reading the Old Curiosity Shop by Dickens and I had a old copy of Catch 22 to hand...and like some spurious cosmic ordering service the two amalgamated into the bibliographic beast that is the filler of bookshelves. I like where seemingly unrelated and disparate things crossover so mixing Catch 22 and the old curiosity shop, throw in some vinyl and photography and you get me and #33ana3rdcurios
Hoje venho falar sobre o livro "A Última carta de amor". Não foi muito fácil. Faz um tempinho que terminei de lê-lo. Passei um ano para terminá-lo e isso me fez me sentir um pouco mal, pensei que estava com algum problema de interpretar textos ou algo do tipo (rsrsrs). .
A história é incrível, a maneira que ela foi construído é sensacional. São duas histórias que se encontram para que a vida de quatro pessoas tenham um final digno e feliz para todos. A autora trouxe reflexões importantes sobre divorcio no passado, traição, a autonomia da mulher seja financeira ou na sua liberdade ao escolher seu parceiro. .
A narrativa traz duas mulheres: Ellie, uma jovem jornalista de sucesso que está envolvida com um homem casado e temos Jennifer, uma jovem casada, exemplo para as mulheres da década de 60. As histórias dessas duas se unem quando Ellie precisa fazer uma matéria excelente para que nao perca seu emprego. Ela encontra uma linda carta escrita para Jennifer na década de 60. A grandiosidade da historia está exatamente nesse encontro dessas duas personagens. .
Mas, o que me fez ter dificuldades na leitura é que as primeiras mudanças de uma narrativa pra outra acontece "sem aviso" e isso me fez me sentir perdida, iniciei a outra parte tendo que construir tudo novamente, os personagens, os espaços e isso me cansou, me fez parar de ler muitas vezes, você nao consegue entender a ligação entre as duas personagens, do passado e presente. Parece que nada faz sentido. A narrativa é extremamente lenta. Chegando um pouco mais a frente a autora começa a nos dar alguma dica, a ligar pequenas coisas, e aí a gente descobre a força da história. E é lindo. São personagens que erraram, mas que desejam concertar as coisas, amadurecer e ter o melhor que o amor pode oferecer e é interessante ver o amadurecimento delas através do compartilhamento de experiências uma da outra e vê-las decididas a perder tudo para ter o tudo que o amor real proporciona. .
Sem dúvidas, Jojo Moyes é uma grande autora. E quero ler mais livros dela. Aceito dicas! :) #bookclub#ler#bookclub#bookinstagram#booklovers#loverbook#leitorescompulsivos

Snow day means I can snuggle up with my new book. “Stronger than the Struggle” by Havilah Cunnington.
Also, gonna Watch last nights video study that goes along with it. Love her book club and studies.
Bridal hair. The very term strikes fear into the heart of any hairstylist. Seldom do you sleep well the night before. Plan all you want, how the hair falls out of those rollers, how it all comes together is intricate, ultra detailed, includes structure and placement. You can't pre think it because it just happens. In the moment it comes together and it is better than you could plan because it is you and a craft and years of practice. That's why in high end salons only the best and most experienced do brides. The raw nervous anticipation of stepping into a monster updo including veil...is how I feel reconstructing this last section. What I know about hair is you can stress about it all you want but in the moment of pulling it together it just happens. To contrast with writing: I have 450 pages I am thrilled with. 50 pesky pages, two scenes that aren't driving things. It hit me. This scene I am unsure of tells us nothing about Cora. It tells me a lot about a character for book three who needs to know his place. This is not his book and not his time to shine. My whole premise of this book revolves around Cora. The last section will have to be rewritten. Almost in entirety because I have a clear vision this morning. I got side tracked with this other character. Ohhhhhh wait Til you meet him. Never mind! This is not about him. I am nervous because I am listening to negative reviews. Oh! A humdinger I am still trying to get over. "Lack of education is obvious in your writing. Are you actually a hairstylist who wrote a book?" Seriously, that was in a review. So, time to shake that off. Stepping into this scene is nerve wracking! I think I can do it, pull it all together, But I haven't placed the rollers or gauged the mood of the bride, so... Stay tuned!
Lotta books out there about streetfashion or streetculture or streetsomething and most of them written from the outside looking in so you will get the same views all over and over ..

In my brand new book #itstartswithme I open up and talk about my own body image struggles, I am so glad that I opened up to help other girls & women. At the time when my book got published and starting selling online through @amazon and in #australian book stores I did feel totally vulnerable as I had let go of one of my deepest inner struggles, however by letting go I have now been able to help others and girls & women from right around the world who have struggled not fitting into the so call Perfect Body Image Modelling Front Cover Magazine or Top Supermodel Looks have also opened up to me and it seems sometimes when you think you are the only one going through something there is always someone else out there in the world going through a similar thing.

FYI I love my #matthewwilliamson sheets, it took me weeks to find them whilst unpacking the new house!! #letsstartabookclub#helpeachother#cornerofmyhome#tassels
