While I was cooped up with my brother during Hurricane Irma, I was so stressed out I couldn't study or write. So I began writing about the conditions outside in a battle scene, and I ended up scrapping the whole thing the next day. But there's a happy ending to this story! After the hurricane blew over and I was able to relax, I had a whole bunch of ideas that came to me. To this day, I still have the scrapped scene in my computer. It may not have been able to fit in my current story, but it turned out to be my hidden muse. ＼(^o^)／ #ThursdayThoughts
These are my editions of the first Harry Potter book! I’m so excited to finally have the house pride edition 💚
Most of the stressful things for this week are done with and I couldn’t be more happy. Still there are a few others left 😬
I’m halfway through Outlander and omg it’s so much better than the show in certain aspects but I definitely love that I have a clearer picture in my mind because I’ve already watched the show 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
There are two things that men should never weary of, goodness and humility ~Robert Louis Stevenson, Kidnapped.
This is one of my mom's amazing books. Showing it off today for Art & Illustration, the @bookriot prompt. Because, look at that art and type and wow 🎨. Cheers to Warwick Goble!
As you may know, Kidnapped is a historical fiction adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It ran as a serial in a magazine for a few months in 1886 before it was published as a book. This is a 1946 edition.
I read this in a Guardian article: In the Collected Works of Stevenson [Kidnapped] boasts one of the longest and most elaborate subtitles in English literature: "Being Memoirs of the Adventures of David Balfour in the Year 1751; How he was Cast Away; His Sufferings in a Desert Isle; His Journey in the Wild Highlands; His Acquaintance with Alan Breck Stewart and other Notorious Highland Jacobites; with All that He Suffered at the Hands of his Uncle, Ebenezer Balfour of Shaws, Falsely So-Called. Written by Himself and Now Set Forth by Robert Louis Stevenson with a Preface by Mrs Stevenson".
Yay words! And art!
My way of coping is different from yours and it should be respected. Not everyone experiences and copes the same and yet, you cannot tell me how to deal with my own issues that only came up in 2012 and I have had to deal with cutting off a toxic parent and cut down my impulses. #mentalhealth#mentalillness#quote#nikitagill#bookquote
💀🕸 I am obsessed with these creepy retellings of old classics. I think it’s such an awesome idea! I still have yet to read Android Karenina which I picked up for a couple of dollars at the book fair. It’s such a cool twist on old classics, and I’m a fan of anything quirky, creepy or weird hehe. 💀🕸
📚A Cor Púrpura - Alice Walker 📙
Você é preta, é pobre, é feia. Você é mulher. Vá pro diabo, ele falou, você num é nada.
Meu primeiro contato com A Cor Púrpura foi através do filme estrelado por Whoopi Goldberg e Oprah Winfrey, e dirigido por ninguém menos que Steven Spielberg. Adoro esse filme, e o livro também entrou para a lista dos meus preferidos da vida!♥
A história se passa na Geórgia de 1909 a 1950 (mais ou menos), e conta a vida de Celie, que é negra, pobre e semianalfabeta.
No início do livro, Celie, com 14 anos, é separada da irmã pelo pai abusivo, com quem teve dois filhos, e entregue ao seu futuro marido, Albert (chamado de "Sinhô" por Celie).
É muito difícil resenhar esse livro, acho a história muito forte, Celie quase que diariamente é espancada ou estuprada pelo Sinhô, além de sofrer vários outros tipos de abusos. O livro retrata uma sociedade extremamente racista e machista, onde uma mulher negra não é absolutamente nada, e sim, é um livro triste, daqueles que você fica muitas vezes com um nó na garganta e outras vezes na torcida para que não aconteça mais algo terrível com a personagem, mas também é um livro sobre superação. Não tem como não se apaixonar por Celie, pela sua humildade, doçura e ingenuidade (quase que infantil).
Vários personagens vão surgindo no decorrer da história, alguns apaixonantes. Esse é um livro que conta não só a história de Celie, mas também das gerações de sua família.
O livro não é escrito na forma culta, então no início pode ser um tanto difícil entender o que a personagem fala, com todo o regionalismo de suas palavras, pois toda a narrativa da história é feita através de cartas escritas por Celie à Deus.
Alice Walker escreveu o livro em 1982, e a autora foi a primeira mulher afro-americana a ganhar o prêmio Pulitzer de literatura.
Let’s talk sequels for a second. I have the WORST habit of reading the first book in a series and then never reading the rest of the series. Sometimes I’m waiting for the second book to come out then by the time it does, I’m reading something else and keep putting it off because I’m not as invested in the story anymore and other times there’s just no good reason.
Prime example: The Ember in the Ashes series. Read the first book last year and absolutely loved it and immediately bought the second book. Have I read A Torch Against the Night even though I’ve owned it forever? Nope and there’s no good reason. It’s an awful habit and it’s one I’m trying to fix. It’s my goal to re-read Ember and read Torch before the next book comes out next year. (As well as continuing all the OTHER series I have yet to finish)
Do you always start and finish a series or are you like me and read the first book and never get around to the rest of the books? 📷 photo of our Torch Against the Night Bookmark by @ageoffangirls 😍
