“Doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.” - Philip Roth, The Ghost Writer
Philip Roth, one of the greatest American writers of our time, died yesterday at age 85. He will always have a special place in my heart. His novel The Ghost Writer was the first book I read for my English degree. His prose was equal parts mysterious and probing, and he will be missed 🖤
Julia’s father leaves and disappears one day, not telling anyone where he is going. Several years later, they find a love letter he wrote to a mysterious Burmese woman. Julia travels to her father’s native land to try and find her father and the mystery woman. There she meets a man who tells her her father’s life story and leads her to the answers she’s been searching for.
Overall, I did enjoy this story. However, there were things about it that bothered me, and that prevented me from really loving the book. I didn’t like the way Julia’s father handled things. It made him a really unlikeable character for me. I can go on and on about this, but I’ll spare you all that. I will say that my favorite part of the book was reading about Tin Win and Mi Mi and their relationship before he came to America. I thought it was very touching and I like that Julia learned things about her father that she otherwise wouldn’t have known. If you’re a fan of romantic historical fiction, then I would recommend this book. Other people read this book and loved it, so don’t let my average rating stop you from picking it up. It is a touching story of love, loss, and acceptance.

Do you have to participate in both the buddy read and the book of the month ❓❓
... Definitely no, you could participate in any activity of this book club separately, any month you find yourself free 😊

Oh the ending!! Wow. I received an ARC of Bring Me Back from @stmartinspress and boy was it a good one. Pictured is my pupper, who put himself in this position with no bribing what so ever while I was reading this weekend! 🐶📚
Bring Me Back is about a man whose girlfriend disappears under suspicious circumstances, and years later he ends up dating her sister. But, things are not quite as they seem, and 15 months into his new relationship, mysterious objects start to appear that have a link to his past relationship, that cast doubts on everything he has come to think of as his own.
There are a lot of clues and theories throughout the book, but I was definitely not expecting the ending (even though it was hinted at- I totally missed the hints!). Definitely another great one by @baparisauthor to check out!
Historical Romance Takeover • Week 4 • Country House Party 🏰
“Before she knew what she was about, she was jumping about like a crazy woman, yelling, “Yes! Yes! I win!”
“You don’t win,” Anthony snapped.
“Oh, it feels like I’ve won,” she reveled.”
Anthony Bridgerton, one of society’s most notorious rakes, excites London when he decides to get married. Setting his sights on the season’s incomparable, Miss Edwina Sheffield, he believes it’ll be easy to win her over. Anthony quickly realizes that in order to marry Edwina he must first impress her older sister, Kate, which is easier said than done! Kate, being all too familiar with Anthony’s rakish ways, vows that he will not marry her sister. As Anthony tries to win her over, things start to change until they can’t deny the passion simmering between them. How can Anthony marry one sister when he’s yearning for another?
This is one of my favorite books from the Bridgerton series! Even though Anthony and Kate have an antagonistic relationship at first, they work together really well and make a great couple. The infamous Pall Mall scene, set during the house party, is a highlight of the book and one of my favorite scenes from the entire romance genre. I’m competitive by nature and I can totally see myself getting very into the game. What are your favorite scenes from books?

Ini tidak hanya berlaku bagi kalangan aktivis tapi mereka yang bergerak di dunia hiburan mendapat rejeki yang sama besamya. Dunia hiburan yang padat modal telah mengangkat sekaligus membawa sejumlah orang dalam tangga kekayaan. Pundi-pundi sebuah kelompok musik bisa sama besarnya dengan pendapatan puluhan tahun seorang buruh. Sama halnya dengan pendapatan kelompok pelawak yang bisa menyamai gaji guru selama berpuluh-puluh tahun. Pendapatan dalam dunia hiburan tidak lagi terletak pada kemasan acara yang cerdas melainkan di rating berapa acara itu nangkring. Kian tinggi rating yang didapat maka acara tersebut akan berlimpah-ruah dengan pendapatan. Dalam dunia hiburan yang memakan tenaga dan jaringan yang luas keuntungan untuk masing-masing jalur cukup besar. Baik itu produser, penyanyi apalagi kalangan promotor memperoleh pendapatan yang menawan.
Pasar hiburan yang kini kian terbuka telah membawa keuntungan berlimpah sekaligus kesempatan bagi ratusan orang. Dunia hiburân telah menjadi ritual bisnis yang memakan keuntungan besar dengan hukum pasar kerja yang berbasis pada penumpukan laba. Sebut saja Raam Punjabi, yang sering disebut sebagai raja industri sinetron, mampu melahirkan 150 judul sinetron dengan jam tayang 7000 jam. Industri sinetron telah melahirkan profesi baru, seperti artis sinetron, penyanyi, model dan penulis skenario. Sama halnya dengan tayangan reality show yang memunculkan para pemasok iklan sefta para penyedia jasa layanan sms premium. Industri hiburan dengan kemahiranya telah membawa ekonomi yang tidak lagi berbasis pada sistem produksi normal melainkan pencitraan yang didukung oleh berbagai perusahaan. Bisnis pencitraan ini berdekatan erat dengan sistem ekonomi pasar yang kian diliberalkan. Sebuah sistem ekonomi yang menghamba pada daya tarik pasar serta meletakkan semua orang dalam jeruji konsumen.

Hey guys. Super busy here but here’s my mini review of Avalanche by Cambria Hebert •
It’s not a secret that I’m a huge Cambria Hebert fan! Her books are always sweet and hot and have a great plot. This book wasn’t an exception. Bellamy and Liam were sooo cute and I love how much they support each other all through the story. Bellamy who finds herself running from some very bad people, go back to the only place she’ll feel safe and go back the only boy she ever loved. The mystery, the love story, the characters. I would definitely recommend. The only problem I had with this book is that Liam and Bellamy only spent a week together when they were teenagers. I love the lost lover get back together story as much as the next person but I just finished they had a bit more of a history

"Peraturan ada bukan untuk dilanggar.
Peraturan ada untuk dituruti oleh
pelanggar." (hlm. 43)
Setelah membaca buku ini, aku jadi kepikiran tentang sebuah peraturan (terutama untuk lomba penulisan) yg sering menentukan panjang naskah sebuah karya yang harus belasan ribu hingga puluhan ribu kata. Dan kujamin, penulis buku ini telah melanggar peraturan! 🙊🙊 Bayangin saja, bila semua kata dalam buku ini dirangkai menjadi satu (seperti bentuk penulisan biasa) mungkin panjangnya kurang lebih 10 halaman! Lalu, kenapa ini bisa menjadi 320 halaman? 😌
Itulah hal yang membuatku sangat terkejut saat pertama kali membuka halaman awalnya. Nggak nyangka, kisah thriller ini (yang sinopsisnya bikin aku ngebayangin hal-hal sadis dan mencekam) ternyata ditulis dalam bentuk sajak! It's crazy! Kupikir, buku terunik yang aku baca adalah Illuminae, namun ternyata buku ini lebih unik lagi. Surprise banget deh! Bikin geleng-geleng.
Walau format penulisannya agak "nyeleneh", tapi feel thrillernya terasa sekali. Mulai dari cerita Will tentang kematian kakaknya, hingga saat dia akan melakukan oertauran no.3, yaitu balas dendam. Yang makin membuat buku ini lebih unik lagi yaitu 90% cerita di buku ini bersetting di dalam lift! Bayangin aja, di setiap lantai dari lantai 8 menuju lantai "L" (lobi), aku dibuat selalu tegang dan parno. Gokil! 😨
Aku nggak tahu seperti apa buku aslinya, tapi aku sangat menikmati terjemahannya ini. Aku suka anagram-anagramnya tidak diterjemahin (tetap dalam bhs inggris). Endingnya... oemji bikin spechless! Kalau kamu tidak percaya, silahkan saja baca bukunya. Dan buktikan sendiri 😜
Terima kasih pada kak @meryri30 yg telah menghadiahkan buku ini 😚
The Marrow Thieves
The Marrow Thieves follows the story of a young Métis boy nicknamed Frenchie as him and his companions travel throughout the Canadian wilderness. In a dystopian future where climate change and war has taken the ability of people to dream only Native Americans still dream. Now, the Canadian government uses Recruiters to track down people like Frenchie so that their bone marrow can be used to make people dream.
TMT, is a beautiful book and it's written in a way that tears at your heart. It would be powerful without historical context, it would be an amazing story about family, resilience, pride, and finding yourself. But knowing the injustice faced by the Native communities and the injustice they still face, the book transcends its pages and is so much more important. The book touches on the generational trauma and struggle that arose from colonisation, genocide, unlawful persecution, and residential schools.
TMT is an #ownvoices masterpiece that shows the diversity within the First Nations community. The author is Métis like Frenchie, who is now one of my most favourite characters. He is so vulnerable and real, I remember saying to my sister: "if anything happens to Frenchie I will kill everyone in this room and then myself" (b99 reference 😂). But he's not the only person that steals your heart, RiRi, and Slopper, Miig, Chi-boy, actually EVERYONE is so 3D and their backstories are meaningful and give so much insight on the characters.
Without giving too much away, I wanted to comment on a few details, like the use of residential schools as the new and old sites of genocide. And how the Recruiters were dressed like gym teachers.
All in all TMT is highly recommended by me and in all honesty, I hope this becomes required reading in schools. This is such an important book.

“In principle and reality, libraries are life-enhancing palaces of wonder.”
- Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
Ok, the beginning of this book is EXTREMELY awkward, which is kinda the point. Eleanor is EXTREMELY awkward and not in the adorable, slightly geeky way, but in an unselfaware anti-social way. Again, which is the point.
So, soak in the uncomfortable situations she obliviously bulldozes her way through because it sets you up perfectly for the journey of Eleanor's self-discovery. ……….
I found this book achingly beautiful and traumatizing all at the same time. Very good book.
What other books with socially awkward leads would you recommend?

~When Never Comes by Barbara Davis~
“Integrity isn’t something you have in some parts of your life and not in others. You either have it, or you don’t.” .
Christy Lynn has no troubles. She has survived a troubled youth to become the wife of a best selling crime novelist. She believes her marriage to be an ideal one, until her husband has a car accident, his car ending up in Echo Bay. In the car with him is a half naked blonde.
This book grabbed me from the beginning. A complicated story about a complicated young woman. Her plight tugged at my heart strings, and by the end of the story I wanted her to find her happiness. Christy Lynn learns about her husband’s secret life, and discovers much about herself in the process.
I don't want to give any spoilers away, but the book ends exactly as a book should. .
There is some language in it and some uncomfortable subject matter. The scenes are not explicit, but the main character has had a rough life in the past.
Lovely ending. I was cheering her on. A very satisfying read.
Tell me your favorites in the comments! Looking to drown myself in some authors who have a way of making earth seem small and eternity real. (Bonhoeffer, Tozer, Lewis are current favorites but looking to expand 😍) Thanks in advance!
Udah lama banget gua ga baca buku. Tapi, akhir2 ini jadi ketagihan terus bacanya.
Gua baca buku imperfectnya Meira Anastasia.
Bener-bener buku yang sangat menginspirasi.
Suka banget bagaimana Mamak Meira membagikan hidupnya dan membuag aku bukan hanya termotivasi, tapi juga kagum, merasa ditegur, dan bahkan eyes opening banget.
Mengajarkan aku utk lb sensitive dengan perasaan orang lain, dan juga menghargai, mencintai, dan menerima diriku sendiri.
For this wonderful book..
84 выпуск. Обзор комикс «Бандитка. Вуаля!», что выпустила в своём издательстве замечательная Беата Котащевская @jerichon . Тут как обычно только вердикт. Полную версию можно прочитать по ссылке в профиле. ———————————————————
И пусть многие из тех кто сейчас прочтёт мой вердикт или резюмирующее мнение по обозреваемому сегодня комиксу посчитают меня жутким подлизой, подхалимом и льстецом, но я просто не могу не сказать о том, что издательство «Jellyfish Jam» имеет просто невероятное чувство вкуса, когда дело доходит до издания ими каких-либо альтернативных историй. Что ни книга, то в той или иной степени маленький шедевр. «Мышиная Гвардия», «Диптих», «Прекрасная Тьма», «Через Лес», а теперь список этих восхитительных произведений пополнила ещё и замечательная серия комиксов «Бандитка» от Пола Тобина и Коллин Кувер. Не знаю как Вы, но я лично просто влюбился в его главную героиню, а так же в те головокружительные приключения, из которых состоит вся её жизнь. Во многом это связано с лёгкой и непринуждённой подачей сюжета комикса, его стилизованным под акварель рисунком, созданной внутри него атмосферой Франции, ну и, конечно же, элегантнейшим внешним и внутренним оформлением. Все вместе это делает придуманную Полом Тобином и визуально воспроизведенную Коллин Кувер историю совершенно невероятной. Именно поэтому, когда ты читаешь её, то получаешь огромное удовольствие, а когда она заканчивается на самом интересном месте, и к тебе приходит осознание того, что абсолютно не известно, когда в нашей стране у неё выйдет продолжение, начинаешь сильно расстраиваться по этому поводу. Подводя итог всему вышесказанному, я однозначно рекомендую комикс «Бандитка. Вуаля» к Вашему обязательному прочтению.
Оценка: 9.5/10.0 ———————————————————
I gave this book 🌟🌟🌟. I really enjoyed it, especially the last two chapters where several parts had me at the edge of my seat. There was also many parts where the writing was beautiful. But unfortunately in my opinion this book was too long, with to many tangents that made me bored… Also I was a bit disappointed since I saw some of the plot twists coming. Still I am glad I read this book as I really liked many parts of it. I might just have expected too much because of all the amazing reviews this book has!

This book is sure in my favourite list because it inspires to chase our dream, no matter how hard it is. There will be several forces which pull us back. But the key is to follow our heart,and make the move.. The best part was , each chapter is through the the perspective of Kabir or Myra. The book is inspired by the author's life.

QOTD: What character do you have the biggest crush on?
I have spoken on here at length about Jace from The Mortal Instruments and today is another one of those days! 😂😂😂 I promise when I finish the series I will stop posting about it so much... and start posting Cassie Clare’s other series 😂😂 City of Lost Souls is my current read and I’m enjoying getting a lot of Jace time! I’m past the halfway point now and fast approaching the end. I am prepared for whatever may come (jk I’m gonna die).
In the midst of dissertation and uni stress and packing up/cleaning my student house, my only respite has been taking my book to a coffee shop to sunny spot for a couple of hours! It’s get me out of the house and away from the internet, which I’ve really been needing recently. The incredible shadowhunter world that Cassandra Clare has created is perfect to fall into for an afternoon and forget about everything that’s going on in my life at the moment. I care so much about the characters that my approaching deadlines don’t matter. We’re so lucky to have such fantastic books!
The perfect accompaniment to my current read is my Jace Wayland and Malec teas from @oriandle! Spicy and sweet and so tasty!!! Go check out their Etsy and follow their insta while you’re at it; they have some exciting stuff in the works and you wouldn’t want to miss it!!! Don’t forget to use my code COSY10 for a tasty discount!

The next day, Laquan was walking after school to the 99 cent store to pick up some supplies for class. He had to do a project about his father for Father’s Day, & as much as he didn’t feel like doing it, he also didn’t want to be the only kid in the class that failed to bring something in. Something made him feel like everybody would notice & know that the reason he had nothing to hand in was because his father had left him. Of course, unbeknownst to him, there were many other kids in his class that were in the same exact situation. Instead of the school offering some sort of support group that could have helped those students cope, it was a subject that was not discussed. Almost taboo to bring up, it ultimately forced them all to deal with it individually as children 😶📑👀 Poetry in black is available May 25th - Order link in bio!
A rush of glitter and glam, with a touch of Kardashian side-eye, this novel grabs you from the start with Lavinia's manic energy and never lets go. Tara Isabella Burton captures the self-absorbed, emoji-laden world of excess in fine detail. Photos, filters, check-ins, likes – nothing happens unless it happened on social media. .
A deeper read of the text may even pull the thread that in today's social media obsessed culture, we may not be *able* to see what's right in front of us, choosing to believe only what's on our phones. Burton's main character Louise alludes to this with her thought, "we cannot be known and loved at the same time." But just like social media, we only show our good side to the world. So it goes for Louise. Anyone who's ever felt like they aren't worthwhile, doubted their abilities, or held the pessimistic view that no matter what they do it's all going to go wrong anyway will find a piece of themselves in the pathetically identifiable portrayal of Louise – at least until the book takes a darker turn. "You can't fool them forever, not even the very stupid ones." .
I've seen some people on GoodReads saying that they couldn't stand the book because of the writing structure. They mentioned that entire pages are comprised mostly of one run-on sentence. While this is true, I think it was definitely the correct choice by the author and editors – the writing style is a great reflection of Lavinia's mania and the breakdown of Louise's soul.
I loved that this book did not follow the current trend of narration by multiple characters through multiple timelines to hide a grand surprise twist – just following Louise was enough "Oh, no, she didn't!" For me. The thrill was in what comes next? Will she get away with it? Won't someone notice?! .
@notoriousdrtib BTW – I love em dashes. 😉
HUGE thanks to Penguin's First to Read program for a free advanced digital galley in exhange for an honest review, 'cause I honestly LOVED this book!

It's #mmdbookclub day! For May we read What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell, and this month we get to chat with the author herself.
I liked this book, but haven't found myself thinking about it much since I finished. So what does that mean about the book, do you think? I'm definitely looking forward to hearing what Blundell has to say about her own work and to seeing more about what others have thought (especially since I haven't spent as much time on the forums this time). That's what is so great about book club!
My bottom line for this read: ⭐⭐⭐💫
Book post! 📖 📚🤓
Needing to catch up on some book thoughts before the backlog of what I’ve read gets too large! 😬
The Woman in Cabin 10 started out a little meh, but got more interesting and intriguing as the story and characters developed. It’s actually a 2016 publication, just took me awhile to get to this one. It follows a travel journalist on an assignment on an exclusive luxury cruise. She gets an experience of a lifetime, but much different than she expected! 😉 It’s a good summer read, not exceptional - but worth your time. 👍🏻 #bookstagram#books#bookworm#bookshelf#bookreview#whatimreading#galveston#texas#islandlife
Роза Эпштейн "Книга Розы" 🌹
📚Эту книгу прочла взахлёб, настолько интересная, что невозможно оторваться, тем более очень люблю биографии от первого лица и для меня не важно известный это человек или нет.
📚 Роза Соломоновна Эпштейн рассказала свою историю и историю своей семьи в период до Великой Отечественной войны, во время и после. 📚Каждый раз читая военные книги, я не перестаю удивляться, что приходилось переживать людям, и как это их не сломило. Иногда задаю себе вопрос : "Смогла бы тоже, вот так , как они ?", но все же стараюсь не углубляться в эту тему, так как выросла в другое время и мне уже не понять , как это было раньше , только читая книги и восхищаясь людьми , их стойкостью и мужеством, могу что-то для себя понять... 📚Роза пишет очень легко, без всяких ужимок и выпячивания ( как это бывает иногда в биографиях) , фотографии в книгах очень помогают понять образы людей , обозначенных в книге . Несмотря на сложное время, много весёлых историй , которые пересекаются с историями, когда на волоске от смерти, но судьба -удивительная штука.
📚В общем и целом очень советую эту книгу!
"You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose" - Erin Morgenstern
This is how I felt while reading the night circus.
Bound to each other since childhood, Celia and Marco are to play a game to the finish that involves the fate of the Night Circus. The 'Le Cirque des Reves' is the brainchild of a select group of people who are rich, elite and powerful. In time, it becomes a site due to which diverse peoples from all over the world connect with each other for their love of this circus. And so it belongs to everyone. It is the home of the twins, poppet and widget who are born during its inception and are the very part of its magic. For many others it is a place where they can get lost and remember it long after it has vanished.
What is most appealing is the way this book hits the senses. One can almost feel the touch of satin, the scents in the air of caramel apples and cinnamon and smoke, or the changing colours of Celia's dress from black to gray to green. There are acrobats, illusionists, fire eaters and contortionists that belong to normal circuses and then there are tents that contain mazes, wishing trees, ice gardens or even a pool of tears. The fact that the story is told in different places and time frames and still moves at a steady pace adds to the magic of the book.
It's a must read for anyone who believes in magic, the magic of love, friendship and above all of storytelling. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Qotd: What's the one scene or quote that stuck with you in the book?
