I know I've been talking a lot about bookish collections lately, and I've got yet another one. I'm so excited about my new collectibles, that arrived today. I'm head over heels in love with my new Barnes & Nobles Leatherbound editions of Arabian Nights and Grimm's Complete Fairytales 💜
Недавно приобрела себе книгу @nika_nabokova#мозгоеды , но честно скажу такого формата книги не читала, а теперь думаю зря. Автор доступным и понятным языком пишет о том ,что делать если:
✅ты находишься в болезненных отношениях;
✅тебя окружают нарциссы и принцессы;
✅забыл,что ты взрослый человек;
✅у тебя есть мнимые страхи.
Да,книга строго 18+
В книги автор рассказывает реальные истории из жизни,даёт подробный анализ ситуации,а главное четко и понятным языком объясняет что делать. При желании книга читается за один день.
💭 «Твой первый шаг- признаться в том, что у тебя есть страхи, и перестать себя за них ругать. Это не показатель того, что ты слабовольная овца и тряпка, а скорее наоборот, хороший такой показатель психологического здоровья»
💭 «Прими как данность:нет никаких волшебных переключателей внутри твоего мозга, чудесных таблеток, техник, способных одним махом запустить радость и счастье.»
4.5 'devilish' stars🌟🌟🌟🌟.𝘗𝘩𝘦𝘸𝘸𝘸 what an entertaining, fun, endearing story,Arrogant devil by RS grey is.Its absolutely my kind of romcom.I live for hate to love stories.
This story follows the journey of Meredith Avery who leaves an emotionally abusive relationship & was determined to start a new life on her own.
Still she was strong willed, charming, funny & optimistic.One thing I loved most about her character was that even though she has been through so much ,she didn't let that part of her life make her bitter or aloof.Then,her decision to start a new life bring her to Texas to the ranch of Jack Mcnight.

Now jack is someone who is cold ,aloof & a hard headed man whose sole focus is his ranch.
For some reason jack had some misconceptions about Meredith even before meeting her thus needless to say they start off on a wrong foot.
Jack tried everything to get rid of meredith but failed to break her spirit.

This is just one piece of the quality of humour you will find in the book.Its so much fun to read how their relationship developed.The slow burn will keep you on edge for sure.The side characters are amazing specially jack's grandmother,Edith & Alfred,the golden retriever.So for all the romcom lovers out there this book is just for you.

THUG is one of those books that has been around #bookstagram for a while. And for that reason I just wasn't sure about it. The fear of the hype, plus my niggles with YA made me not want to pick it up. But how wrong was I? I'll tell you now, very wrong! The Hate U Give is not only the best YA book I've ever read but also one of the best books I've ever read.
So why did I love it so much?
1. It's a very important read. Police violence, brutality and ultimately murder against black people in the US is disgraceful and shameful. Yet at the same time it's still severely denied by large portions of society, especially defensive white people who just don't want to see what's in front of them. THUG shows this well, especially through Hayley's character, the white friend who doesn't realise she's being racist and gets extremely defensive when this is pointed out to her. I hated Hayley but she's such a perfect representation of that type of person!
2. Starr just has the nicest voice. As I've said I have problems with YA. I don't judge anyone who reads it but I have myself always struggled with the genre. My eyes always roll so hard while I read an YA voice they end up in the back of my head. It's mostly because I find their problems trivial and I have my old lady voice of "wait until life hits you". But life has already hit Starr, it hit her at the age of 10 when she saw her best friend get shot and it hit her again at 16 when her other childhood friend gets pulled over and killed by a police officer who mistakes the handle of a hair brush for a gun. Reading this from her perspective made it even more meaningful to me. It showed at what an early age black people in America have to be aware of their race. The fact that her dad gives her the talk of how to behave around police officers at the age of 12 is heartbreaking.
3. It's funny! In spite of the harrowing experiences and the fact that this book made me cry a few times, Angie Thomas manages to balance that with so many funny remarks from Starr. She's hilarious really and the bits about how white people love their dogs were particularly funny.
Have you read THUG? What did you think?

How Successful People Think by John Maxwell 🔑

Goals are easy to set & a journey to commit to. We all can set them but in order to achieve them we have to commit to the journey. The journey might feel like hell sometimes & that’s why we need keep our “why” in mind. With a clear vision of our “why”, the universe will provide us the “how”. From there we plan, execute & commit. 🔥

Suicidal: Why We Kill Ourselves by Jesse Bering — Published by University of Chicago Press
This is a well-researched exploration of the various schools of thought surrounding suicide. There’s some cool stuff about the evolutionary biological perspective on suicide, a comparison between various cultures both historically and in the present and their attitudes and practices concerning suicide and suicide prevention, categorical breakdowns of the warning signs of suicidal behaviour (as well as some tools to assist in suicide-prevention) and a whole lot of other interesting psychology/sociology/anthropology related stuff.
I guess that, as someone who’s been suicidal relatively frequently since I was 15, I’ve always been more invested and interested in the personal scope of suicide instead of the actual theoretical foundation underpinning the research that defines how we understand and think about it. Now that I’m kind of healthy again, it’s morbidly cool to think about suicide in an impersonal way, as well as learning about all the different ways there are of thinking about it. It’s weird how normal sucidal thinking is, but also how the normalization of suicide can be dangerous while the stigma is harmful too... it’s just a really grey area that’s really difficult to pin down and articulate in a reasonable or conclusive way. It’s not that this book really does anything that will conclusively sway you one way or the other in how you think of suicide, but I guess it helps us understand the various motives, reasoning, and behaviour that contributes to both suicide and suicide prevention. Like, I still think about suicide in a relativistic sense, where I’m never going to make a blanket statement saying It’s Always OK To Kill Yourself vs. It’s Never Ok To Kill Yourself, but I definitely appreciate understanding the nuances of this a little more.
If you’re into understanding the nuances of morally grey areas check this out. Jesse is a great essayist and blends personal experiences with research in a funny, humane, comprehensive, and easily-digestible way. :)

“Forget about willpower. It's time for why-power. Your choices are only meaningful when you connect them to your desires & dreams. The wisest & most motivating choices are the ones aligned with that which you identify as your purpose, your core self, & your highest values. You've got to want something, & know why you want it, or you'll end up giving up too easily.”🗣
The power behind your why is what fuels your drive. It pushes you, shapes you, & inspires you to step into the unknown & discover your hidden powers. Hidden powers are something we all have. We just have to be willing to explore a new road to unlock them.🤞🏾

A couple of weekends ago, I spent my night-in reading The Sun is Also a Star by @nicolayoon , and it quickly became one of my favorite YA contemporaries. Following two teens who happen to bump into each other during one busy summer day in New York City, this story took me on a wonderful journey full of serendipitous moments, wonderful conversations, and a cutesy romance that makes me smile whenever I think about it. What I loved most about this story was how different the main characters were; Natasha is a realistic, no-nonsense Jamaican girl who loves statistics and Daniel is a Korean-American boy who is romantic at heart and wants to become a poet. They both have very different views on life but somehow end up spending an entire day together learning more about themselves, each other, their cultures, and the world around them. UGH i cannot gush about this book enough!
