  • Another good one for an audiobook. You're always selling whether you realize it or not. Closing a deal is the obvious one, but it's also deciding where to go for dinner with someone, or just convincing a kid to put on a coat when it's cold out. He goes off the cuff on some sections and adds a few things that arent in the paperback. Lots of good energy and enthusiasm make for an easy listen.

  • Thank you @booksparks @randomhouse @citygirlcoffee #partner for this epic package!

Do you ever put something somewhere so that you know exactly where it is, and then immediately forget? That’s what happened when I packed this book and coffee. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Luckily I finally found it, because this coffee smells AMAZING! I also think Ali Wong is hilarious and I’m looking forward to reading this collection of letters.

Keep reading for synopsis ↠

Ali Wong's heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters (the two she put to work while they were still in utero), covering everything they need to know in life, like the unpleasant details of dating, how to be a working mom in a male-dominated profession, and how she trapped their dad.

In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, an eight-month pregnant Ali Wong resonated so heavily that she became a popular Halloween costume. Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women, and why you never see new mom comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads.

The sharp insights and humor are even more personal in this completely original collection. She shares the wisdom she's learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her life off stage, including the brutal singles life in New York (i.e. the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam, tales of being a wild child growing up in San Francisco, and parenting war stories. Though addressed to her daughters, Ali Wong's letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving, and enlightening (and disgusting) for all.

  • “I used to feel alone even before I was in here. And in ways we are always alone, and in other ways, we never are, since there are feelings and beings that are unseen and unknown in this world that are around us and protect us.” THE STARS AND THE BLACKNESS BETWEEN THEM, Junauda Petrus
–
Y’all, this one hit harder than I was expecting. First things first, Junauda’s writing ✍🏽 is amazing there’s depth she says so much and by the time it hits you you didn’t even know it was coming. The story of Audre and Mabel was told in two distinct voices who come together to really create an unforgettable story. At the end of the book I was really blown away by Audre’s maturity. If you’re interested in heavy hitting ya, a deep yet uplifting love story I’d definitely recommend!

Astrology was a big theme in this one. I even learned that there’s a such a thing as a moon sign. Have you read this one yet? Adding to your list? I’m curious, what’s your zodiac sign? I’m a Pisces.

  • It is a book mail day! I ordered these last week and they all showed up today. I thought I was in the free and clear because my husband had work today but the snow pushed back his hours, so he actually tripped on these on the way out the door. “Looks like four books,” he said judging me. “That’s because it is four books. Calm down.” He doesn’t care that I buy them but he does judge my tbr pile on top of my bookshelf and doesn’t understand why I don’t read those ones first. To be fair, I don’t have a good excuse other than “because I didn’t want to.” .
.
Have you read any of these? I’m really excited to read The Flatshare, and I’ve been contemplating buying it since pub day, but am only now pulling the trigger.

  • How long is your TBR list? 
Mine is waaaaay too long & I haven't been able to read as much as usual this year since I'm working full time and working at least 20 hours a week for my internship.

Thankfully, I'm in my last semester of school & internship. I'm counting down the days til im not always so busy & tired and can go back to reading more!

  • Let’s talk Final Girls! You would think after my Stephen King marathon that I wouldn’t want to read a thriller-but I just can’t seem to get enough! I joined in on my first buddy read for this one (sup final gorls!!) which made it even more fun. I’m not much of a romance reader, so thrillers are definitely my go-to “easy” read (a beach read could NEVER). It goes back and forth between the past and present, which is something I always love in these types of books. I will say that this wasn’t my favorite thriller that I’ve read this year. A lot of the characters didn’t seem all that developed nor did I really feel invested in any of them. I also didn’t vibe with the writing style wasn’t my but it keeps you guessing and really that’s all I want out of a read like this!
⠀⠀
And that brings me to my 💭 QOTD: What’s you go-to read genre? I am a big non-fiction gal but thrillers are my “easy” read of choice. However, I’m not a big romance/meet-cute reader-bring on the mystery and murder!

  • If you didn’t know, @marianazapata is the queen of slow burn and she does it sooooo well! This wasn’t my favorite, but it was still a great one. I just don’t think it can beat Wait For It and The Best Thing. Those two are at the top of my Mariana Zapata list! 😬

  • Now I’ll start off by saying that I’m a bit predisposed to like this book because I’m a huge James Acaster fan, but I genuinely think that if you like music or James Acaster (which if you haven’t watched his standup, it’s on Netflix, please treat yourself), you’ll love this book! ✨ It details a year or two in Acaster’s life when things weren’t going so smoothly and how he found self-care in his new favorite music genre: albums released in 2016. It’s an interesting discussion about personal growth intertwined with music and themes of religion, with lots of fun and new insights into the musicians/bands he mentions, especially indie or off-the-beaten-path artists. He discusses the excitement of discovering new music and being overwhelmed by it, which hasn’t happen to me in a long time, so I totally understood what he was talking about and really connected with that. ✨ Acaster makes a super interesting point about the process of art not being shown off, only the result & how he struggled with his comedy and found that people didn’t like it very much, which was so strange to read as I found him incredibly funny, and how he was in a really difficult place when he recorded his Netflix specials, which was also strange to me as I found it so funny, uplifting and brilliant! ✨ I enjoyed this one a lot and it was a super great read for days when you’re not feeling your best, as Acaster can definitely empathize. His voice is so strong throughout that you can definitely hear the whole book in his tone, which I kind of loved. Let me know what you thought about this one, or if you’re an Acaster fan like me!

  • I can’t believe it’s been two years of our glorious Romance Book Club at @rebelheartbooks! 
Like most things that make life rich and sweet and beautiful, I can no longer imagine life without it. We’ve talked about so many books. Some we loved, some we hated, some we’ll never agree on. We’ve ranted.  We’ve listened. We’ve laughed and laughed. We’ve searched for the right books, read books we never planned to read, and discovered things about ourselves with each. We’ve stayed out too late, made new friends, cried and celebrated, grown and learned. It’s the best book club with the best people and I feel so lucky I get to be a part of it.

But the greatest part is, we’ve done it together. 
If you find yourself in pretty little Jacksonville, Oregon, you should come join us. Year Three is going to be the best yet.

  • Simplesmente Blue, Amy Harmon, 5 🌟

Blue é uma veterana no ensino médio, com 19 anos ainda está no ultimo ano. Quando ela  tinha apenas dois anos a mãe a abandonou com um desconhecido, que cuidou dela como se fosse uma filha, mas por conta de ser um viajante Blue só começou a frequentar a escola com dez anos. Blue é durona, sem mãe ou qualquer familiar ela não sabe o que será do futuro, mas sabe como manter as pessoas longe. Mas não vai ser tão fácil se manter longe do professor bonito e de apenas 22 anos que vai fazer de tudo para ajudar Blue a descobrir seu lugar no mundo. *suspiros* ahhhh esse livro! Ele é tão bonito, tão profundo, eu tinha grandes expectativas com essa autora por que Beleza Perdida é simplismente maravilhoso, e ela superou essas expectativas. Simplesmente Blue, é Simplismente Maravilhoso.

Temos uma protagonista diferente do habitual, ela mesmo se define como a (puta, piranha) da escola, não se importa com nada e é bem rude, mas isso não passa de uma casca que ela usa para não se mostrar de verdade para ninguém, já que sofreu muito para uma vida só.

Blue é uma menina que ao mesmo tempo é madura e sabe se cuidar sozinha, é inocente e só precisa de alguém para amar. 
Quando Wilson surge na vida dela, ela só quer o afastar, mas ele quer e precisa ajudar essa garota que se faz de mais forte do que realmente é.

O romance é tão sutil até o final do livro que é quase inexistênte, vemos o carinho que um tem pelo o outro, e amamos Wilson, o inglês mas maravilhoso do mundo, ele cuida dela sem pedir nada em troca. 
Muitas coisas acontecem com  Blue, muitas coisas fortes, vemos um amadurecimento grande na personagem. O livro é cheio de emoções fortes, eu amei.

  • “Grief is an amputation, but hope is incurable haemophilia: you bleed and bleed and bleed.” // slade house, david mitchell, 👍🏽
.
.
.
Sort of mixed feelings on this one. It centers a specific house in London called Slade House, and all those who enter never come out...It’s organized within 5 stories, all set nine years apart, of those that have entered Slade House. I read it very quickly and I enjoyed it but I don’t think it did what it was supposed to do. I think it was supposed to be at least a little unsettling but mostly I just found it amusing. Also, I’ve never read BONE CLOCKS, one of Mitchell’s other works, but I know that it ties heavily into that world, so people who have read it might find this one more rewarding. Also, this book is VERY British, which is fine by me but definitely is something to warn about because it relies heavily on British slang and dialect. All in all, this one is mostly a 🤷🏽‍♀️, but I can say it was a great book to read for the two 2.5 hour bus rides I took this weekend. Thanks to @booksnblazers for letting me borrow this!

.
Rumor has it that we will be getting our first snow of the season later tonight. I’m crossing my fingers! I love snow! Maybe not the shoveling part or having to clear paths in the yard for our pooches so much, but it’s all worth it in the end when you can enjoy the beauty of it and hibernate with cocoa and a book.
.
Do you get happy when you hear snow in the forecast or does the idea of snow make you cringe? ❄️❄️❄️

  • "She scoured the Earth, wandering and ravenous, looking for doors. And she found them. She found them in abandoned churches and the salt-rimed walls of caves, in graveyards and behind fluttering curtains in foreign markets. She found so many her imagining of the world grew lacy and tattered with holes, like a mouse-chewed map."- The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow 
HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR. If not my entire life. This is one of the most stunning, beautiful books I have ever read 😭😍🥰 Thank you @grimdark_dad for always recommending stellar books like this one. I love this book so much, I just want to go back in time and start over from the beginning. Again and again. 
January Scaller was once a dreamer who imagined that there was more to this world than meets the eye. Caught up in stories and childhood games, she was always a dreamer. But as she grows older, her benefactor Mr. Locke attempts to reign her in to turn her into a proper young lady. January is a ward of Mr. Locke as her father travels the world for him hunting down rare artifacts for an archaeological society. Yet one day January discovers a book about other worlds. And she begins to remember a time when she discovered a Door to another world. And with that, she realizes her life can never be the same. 
This is a damn perfect book. At least to me. It is everything I want in a book and more. It may sound silly, but it really spoke to my soul. 😭I really think this is one that should not be missed, and I'm tagging a few people who absolutely have to get their hands on a copy 🥰

  • I spent my Sunday immersing myself in some self-study with this fantastic book from @emma.mildon and a soak with one of my favorite CBD bath bombs from @chasinunicorns .

Not pictured: the AHHMAZING Yin/Gong practice given by @meditatingtaurus at @circusoulyoga afterward!! I think I'm nailing this whole #selfcaresunday thing... even if I don't post about it until Monday. 🤣

❓What’s your favorite book setting? I’ve become obsessed with books set in Alaska! It sounds absolutely gorgeous.
•
Calla hasn’t seen her father since she was 2 and hasn’t talked to him in 12 yrs, but when she gets a call that his days may be numbered she heads to Alaska to finally meet him. While she tries to get used to Alaskan life and get to know her dad, she also meets a pilot, Jonah, and their relationship moves from hate to friendship and then something deeper.
•
I loved this book and flew through it. The characters are so well developed and complex, you really got invested in their individual stories. The romance was sweet and I loved Calla and Johnahs banter and how they meshed despite being very different. My favorite part of the book through was the family relationships. As someone who also had an estranged and complicated relationship with my father, who passed away this past summer, I really connected emotionally to the story. This was the first book I’ve read that made me ugly cry. Tucker really captured the conflicting emotions a daughter feels in the situation and I thought the relationship that grew was very genuine and made my heart happy.

I am so glad I finally got around to reading this one, it was a cute romance but also had a very profound and moving story that will stay with me for a long time. If you haven’t read this yet, get on it!

  • "The need to give him what he wanted, to climb out of the machine and into his arms, was so great that it nearly overwhelmed the terror that gripped her at the thought of leaving the machine, the anxiety that if she embraced her father, she would be Heloise again, not the armored saint she needed to be." #mykecole #thekillinglight ⚔

Hey friends! I recently devoured The Killing Light, the final book in Myke Cole's emotionally wrought trilogy, The Sacred Throne.

Endless thanks to @tordotcompub for sending me a copy!

The Killing Light releases tomorrow!

Oof. What a perfect finale for this brilliant series!

Breathless action scenes, heart felt character work & nearly perfect pacing. This series completely wrecked me! It's a masterclass in translating onto the page ALL THE FEELINGS! I was left moony eyed & a little weepy. Okay.. a lot weepy! Heloise will forever be a treasured character for me & the series is, without a doubt, an all-time favorite!

For all of the horror within this series, Myke Cole writes beautifully & turns a phrase as well as anyone. That juxtaposition is what makes me go weak in the knees when I'm reading a dark fantasy series. Brutal, grim, bleak.. yet there's an inkling of hope.

This series is for those of us that like our fantasy diverse & intelligent & stabby & gut-punchy! The writing is brilliant & the worldbuilding staggeringly vivid!

I've tried to do this book, this series justice, but nothing I say can properly capture the soul-crushing beauty that it contains. You just have to read it for yourself!

My full (gushing) review is up on the blog if you are interested! Link is in my profile!

Don't Monday too hard!

  • A padaria dos finais felizes, jenny Colgan, 3,5 🌟⁣
⁣
Sinopse:⁣
"Um balneário tranquilo, uma loja abandonada, um apartamento pequeno. É isso que espera Polly Waterford quando ela chega à Cornualha, na Inglaterra, fugindo de um relacionamento tóxico. Para manter os pensamentos longe dos problemas, Polly se dedica a seu passatempo favorito: fazer pão. Enquanto amassa, estica e esmurra a massa, extravasa todas as emoções e prepara fornadas cada vez mais gostosas. Assim, o hobby se transforma em paixão e logo ela começa a operar sua magia usando frutos secos, sementes, chocolate e o mel local, cortesia de um lindo e charmoso apicultor. A Padaria dos Finais Felizes é a emocionante e bem-humorada história de uma mulher que aprende que tanto a felicidade quanto um delicioso pão quentinho podem ser encontrados em qualquer lugar"⁣
⁣
🗣 Eu achei que esse livro fosse me deixar mais encantada do que realmente deixou, confesso que fiquei um pouco decepcionada. Bom o livro mostra a nova fase da vida de Polly, que se muda para uma cidade pequena com uma mão na frente e outra atrás. Lá ela conhece novas pessoas, começa um negócio de panificadora e vê a vida na cidade ficar cada vez mais no seu passado. ⁣

O enredo do livro é bem bom, mas se perde em alguns pontos, e não explora muito alguns personagens que na minha visão teriam muito para mostrar.
⁣
O livro é leve, bem aqueles filmes de sessão da tarde, mas achei que tem muitos pontos desnecessários, enrolação de mais em algumas partes. O romance é tão lento e até quase o final do livro ele é quase inexistente. ⁣
⁣
Mas é bem daqueles livros para você espairecer a mente, com diálogos engraçados. É um bom livro pra limpar a cabeça depois de sair de uma leitura mais densa.

  • A bibliophile files the catalogue of the books she has in the part of the brain that recalls covers of books (and, by default, the titles of books). Sometimes that cataloguing system fails and you end up bringing home duplicate copies of books. @theboxwalla sent me a beautiful hardcover of Clarice Lispector’s The Besieged City a few months ago. Forgetting that I had this copy, I bought the Penguin copy with the mesmerising cover last Friday. Back to the bookshop to exchange it for another book 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • How long is your TBR list? 
Mine is waaaaay too long & I haven't been able to read as much as usual this year since I'm working full time and working at least 20 hours a week for my internship.

Thankfully, I'm in my last semester of school & internship. I'm counting down the days til im not always so busy & tired and can go back to reading more!

  • “I used to feel alone even before I was in here. And in ways we are always alone, and in other ways, we never are, since there are feelings and beings that are unseen and unknown in this world that are around us and protect us.” THE STARS AND THE BLACKNESS BETWEEN THEM, Junauda Petrus
–
Y’all, this one hit harder than I was expecting. First things first, Junauda’s writing ✍🏽 is amazing there’s depth she says so much and by the time it hits you you didn’t even know it was coming. The story of Audre and Mabel was told in two distinct voices who come together to really create an unforgettable story. At the end of the book I was really blown away by Audre’s maturity. If you’re interested in heavy hitting ya, a deep yet uplifting love story I’d definitely recommend!

Astrology was a big theme in this one. I even learned that there’s a such a thing as a moon sign. Have you read this one yet? Adding to your list? I’m curious, what’s your zodiac sign? I’m a Pisces.

  • I cannot do this book justice by penning my thoughts to paper, because Lispector’s words are pure and utter magic. Beguiling sorcery—her words, her mind. If people find quoting an author on bookstagram spurious, then ta-ta 👋 “I’ve always wanted to find someday a person who would live for me because life is so full of useless things that I can only bear it through extreme muscular asthenia, I suffer from moral indolence in living...maybe I created Angela in order to have a dialogue with myself? I invented Angela because I need to invent myself—Angela is a startled woman. All I know I cannot prove. What I imagine is real, or else on what basis could I imagine Angela, who roars, who bellows, moans, pants, bleating and growling and grunting.” - Clarice Lispector.

  • Starting to feel the approaching mid-term pinch...what’s getting you through this term, teacher friends? 
Seeing the brilliant purple of the jacarandas whose lavender bells are starting to carpet the footpaths, and the mauves of a flowering tree I have not yet identified as I make my way to and from school is getting me through...💜

  • Fuck. Clarice Lispector is good. 
I made a stop at kino and picked up these this afternoon. Opened up to the first page of Breath of Life on the train. So good, so fucking good. “This is not a lament, it’s the cry of a bird of prey. An iridescent and restless bird. The kiss upon the dead face. I write as if to save somebody’s life. Probably my own. Life is a kind of madness that death makes. Long live the dead because we live in them. Suddenly things no longer need to make sense. I’m satisfied with being. Are you? Certainly you are. The meaningless of things makes me smile complacently. Everything must surely go on being what it is. Today is a day of nothing.” -Clarice Lispector.

  • What are you reading this weekend? I started Clarice Lispector’s A Breath of Life, and: my word - pure delight! The tension experienced by the protagonist author is an absolute paroxysm of the existential. Oh, to peer inside the mind of Lispector...
