Blown. Away. Published just a couple days ago, this book was such a complete and total surprise. It’s a story about a mama and her boy, and the lengths she’ll go to in order to protect and take care of him. It’s about a man with the mind of a child and a heart bigger than the giant body he lives in. It’s about friendship and relationships and communities and truth and love. Rose is a giant of a woman in her own right, but she is a fierce and persevering force of nature when her son is involved. And Poe. OH MY GOODNESS, POE. I loved him so much – think Big John from The Green Mile or Lennie from Of Mice and Men. That will get you in the ballpark. I’ll include the book jacket summary in the comments, but just know that it’s a beautiful, moving piece of writing. Please do yourself a favor and go pick up a copy. I cannot believe that more people haven’t been chattering about this one. So – GO READ IT. And start chattering! 😁 A big, Poe-sized thank you to @ecwecwpress for sending me a digital copy of this novel. I am so glad it found me! Full review on my blog and Goodreads. .
I made my lil bro do the setting and I really loved what he's done so here it is.
Also I think this is great book to read in October and I plan to soon.
Did you read it? What do you plan on reading in October?
Môj malý brat naaranžoval túto fotku a mne sa strašne páčila a tak je tu.
Táto kniha vyzerá ako dobré čítanie na október a preto si ju plánujem prečítať.
Čítali ste ju? Čo ešte plánujete čítať v októbri vy?
Im Jugendbuch kann es, meiner Meinung nach, nie genug Lektüre über aufklärende Themen geben. ☝🏻John Green hat sich in seinem ersten Buch nach fünf Jahren, dem Thema Zwangsstörung/Nervenkrankheit angenommen. Ein auch für ihn sehr persönliches Thema. Ich habe „Turtles all the way down“ ziemlich spontan gelesen und auf dem Blog auch etwas dazu zu sagen (spoilerfrei) 🐢Den Link findet ihr im Profil.🐢
What things make you instantly happy?📖
mine are; having a long gym session, book mail, rainbows, sunset and sunrise, my dog, watching my favourite tv show, ticking something off my to do list, feeling productive, the zoo, disneyland and finishing a long book. 🌙
I believe it’s really important to stop once in awhile and make the time to do something that will make us happy.
Also another thing that means me insanely happy: NIKOLAI😍 I’m so so happy that I read the Grisha trilogy this year and I’ll definitely be reading the Six of Crows duology before the year ends!
I am currently way too obsessed with an anime called the Ancient Magus' Bride 😤 I guarantee that if you love fantasy you will love the anime, I haven't read the manga yet but I hope to at least get the first two books soon 💓 It is so magical *wants to live in that world*
It’s #purplethursday and the whole of October is Domestic Violence awareness month. Today’s author @authortonyfaggioli wanted to show his support for survivors and honor the victims of domestic violence by donating all profits from the October sales of The Snow Globe to @safehorizon, a local shelter in NYC. The Snow Globe is a mystery thriller about a woman pursued by her ex. Interwoven in the story are the memories of horrible experiences from years ago. Which prove even more traumatizing than the present day reality of a physical stalker. Please be warned: It touches on subjects that may be triggering.
Have you guys seen the cover for the sequel to Caraval yet? What do you think? It looks so pretty! I can’t wait to read it and see how the story continues. .
What books are coming out next year that you’re excited about?
I love this part of my bookshelf. 🌈 Momentan sind meine Gedanken nicht so bunt und blumig, wie dieser Teil meines Bücherregals. 🌧 Aber ich schaue es so wahnsinnig gerne an. Es sieht einfach so schön aus. ☺️
Ich genieße jetzt einfach noch meine restlichen freien Tage.
Was macht ihr? 😘

I took a beautiful walk around Walden Pond with my children. The water was still and crystal clear, shimmering by the end in the noonday sun. Not every day with small children is memorable, and some need to be forgotten, but this was a keeper!

Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book broke my heart on multiple occasions. I don’t want to give too much away so all I’ll say is that it follows a court case that is based on racial discrimination and injustice. I absolutely couldn’t put it down. Picoult has created some complex characters and a plotline that is evocative and eye-opening. Most of all, it’s realistic. It was difficult to read, knowing it accurately tells the story of the inequality and prejudice faced by so many people across the world on a daily basis. While at times it was frustrating to view the storyline from the perspective of characters with abhorrent opinions, I think this contributed to making the book’s message all the more powerful. I can’t recommend it enough. Thanks to @meganbleexo and @bleesue for repeatedly telling me to read it! 📚 #bookreview#igreview#bookstagram#books#reading#fiction#instareads#instabook#igreads#goodreads#booksofinstagram#jodipicoult#smallgreatthings
For about two years I've been telling people I'm going to get a St. Bernard one day. Yesterday I took the patronus thing on pottermore and got a St. Bernard! It's meant to be! lol 😂
What is your patronus??
Okuduktan sonra "keşke çocukken de okumuş olsaydım" dedirten bir kitapla karşınızdayım. Aslında bir çocuk kitabı bu. Ama Aziz Nesin'in de "Bu romanı salt çocuklar için değil, anababalarla öğretmenler için de yazdım." dediği gibi gerçekten yetişkinlerin de mutlaka okuması gereken bir roman.
Ahmet ve Zeynep adlarında iki arkadaşın mektuplaşmalarından oluşuyor kitap. Zeynep İstanbul'dan Ankara'ya taşınmış taşınırken de kardeşim dediği arkadaşı Ahmet'e söz vermiş mektup yazacağına dair. Roman boyunca bu iki çocuğun ailelerine, arkadaşlarına ve okullarına dair yaşadıkları olayları çocuk gözüyle mektuplarında birbiriyle paylaşmalarını okuyoruz. Aziz Nesin, yetişkinlerin çocukların gözünde nasıl göründüklerini, nerede nasıl yanlışlar yaptıklarını yüksek mizah anlayışını kullanarak oldukça sade ve anlaşılır bir dil kullanarak anlatmış. Okurken, klasik olan tabirle "güldüren ama aynı zamanda da düşündüren" bir kitap. .
Okurken kahkahalar atabileceğiniz çok güzel detaylar var kitapta. Okuması kesinlikle çok keyifli. Ayrıca Hababam Sınıfı'nın o çok güldüren birkaç sahnesi bu kitaptan alınmış okurken onu da fark edeceksiniz. Kaç yaşında olursa olsun kitap okumayı sevmeyen çocuğunuz öğrenciniz veya kardeşiniz varsa mutlaka bu kitabı tavsiye ediyorum. Sonuç olumsuz olmayacak eminim. :) Ve yetişkin olarak sizlere de mutlaka tavsiye ediyorum. Daha önce onu hiç okumadıysanız Aziz Nesin ile tanışmak için şahane bir kitap bence. 🍁

These covers are so gorgeous that they don’t even look real! 😍 I’m #currentlyreading#LikeaRiverGlorious by #RaeCarson and not quite sure how I feel about it. There’s not a lot of action, which normally doesn’t bother me, but I’m hoping that’ll change in the next few chapters.
I’m off work for the next 4 days for all break! I was able to work really late Tuesday and Wednesday, so I could also get Thursday off. So now I’m going to do house chores all day today so I can truly enjoy my vacation. ✌🏼
Have y’all read this series? What did you think?
Cozy morning vibes ☕️ Lovely picture by @thewordwraith, wearing her smoky quartz + sandalwood meditation bracelet. I love following Rachel because she is alway inspiring me to put down my phone and pick up a book instead.

I think that I've read one book in the last three + years that didn't have to do with pregnancy, birthing, sleep training, or parenting. (It was The Universe Has Your Back by @gabbybernstein, by the way! ✨) What about you? Have you read any good books lately? I'm a Harry Potter girl through and through, though these days my crystal books are the only ones that I ever pick up on a regular basis. I would love a great suggestion to ease me back into reading, or just to hear what kind of books you like!

SINOPSE: Honoria Smythe-Smith sabe que, para ser uma violinista ruim, ainda precisa melhorar muito…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Mesmo assim, nunca deixaria de se apresentar no concerto anual das Smythe-Smiths. Ela adora ensaiar com as três primas para manter essa tradição que já dura quase duas décadas entre as jovens solteiras da família. Além disso, de nada adiantaria se lamentar, então Honoria coloca um sorriso no rosto e se exibe no recital mais desafinado da Inglaterra, na esperança de que algum belo cavalheiro na plateia esteja em busca de uma esposa, não de uma musicista.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Marcus Holroyd foi encarregado de uma missão…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Porém não se sente tão confortável com a tarefa. Ao deixar o país, seu melhor amigo, Daniel, o fez prometer que vigiaria sua irmã Honoria, impedindo que a moça se casasse com pretendentes inadequados. O problema é que ninguém lhe parece bom o bastante para ela. Aos olhos de Marcus, um marido para Honoria precisaria conhecê-la bem (de preferência, desde a infância, como ele), saber do que ela gosta (doces de todo tipo) e o que a aflige (como a tristeza pelo exílio de Daniel, que ele também sente). Será que o homem ideal para Honoria é justamente o que sempre esteve ao seu lado afastando todo e qualquer pretendente?

Com seu estilo inteligente e divertido, Julia Quinn enfim apresenta ao público o Quarteto Smythe-Smith, o terrivelmente famoso e adoravelmente desafinado grupo musical que conquistou os leitores antes mesmo que as cortinas se abrissem para ele.
