I’m hitting that hard part of the term when I think I’m on top of it, but then there’s a 3000 word paper I didn’t know about. Not gonna lie, I cried. I broke down. I saw red. I lost respect for the person giving me the news. It sucked. It still sucks. 🍄
Coming home to a package from @hickorynut.t that contained these pendants and this amazing book for foraging (and treats!!). Thank you so much, love! I appreciate you so ✨💕 #aventurineforest

b l u r b "Tentang Kejora—yang rasa sedihnya ia tumpahkan dalam puluhan lembar surat. Tiap kata yang memenuhi lembarnya setara doa, harapan, dan rintihan yang terus meminta agar waktu dapat diputar ulang.
Tentang Raffa—dan rasa sesal yang memenuhi benaknya tanpa pernah berani ia keluarkan. Kata pisah terus membayang di ingatannya meski waktu telah berlalu, bersama imaji seorang gadis mungil yang menyandang nama bintang paling terang. Bintang yang jaraknya dua langkah dari sang mentari.

coming in Fall 2019
Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 4/24
Frank Li is one of the most real and authentic voices I've encountered in years. I grew up with Asian-American "limbo" kids like Frank and Joy, trapped between the worlds of their immigrant parents and American peers, and this is one of the best representations I've read of what living in that environment is like during those critical teen years. I laughed and cried on the wonderful, emotional roller coaster ride that is FRANKLY IN LOVE.
High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo—his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance—“Date Korean”—which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful—and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks it’s the perfect plan, but in the end, Frank and Joy’s fake-dating maneuver leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love—or himself—at all.
Here’s a quote from one of my favourite books #bridgeontheriverkwai
My heart goes out to everyone affected by the Christchurch shooting and I pray for the lives that have been wrongly taken.
This is one of New Zealand’s darkest moments and I just hope that we can recover from it, we’ve only just gotten over what happened to Grace and for this to happen to us divided us as a nation. To any of you that are in Christchurch please stay safe and pray for those who have unfortunately had to go through this madness.

This is one of those books that’s going to stick with me, and my brain will be processing it long after this review is posted.
With insightful and well developed characters set into an explosive plot, this book was basically impossible to put down. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. #JodiPicoult has a gift at making nearly every character relatable, or at least comprehend-able. Understanding a person’s history encourages empathy in the reader within the novel and outside of its pages.
Picoult treats each character, whether you agree with their viewpoint or not, as human. Which, at its core, should really be what this book is about. We are all human, regardless of politics. We just need to learn to treat each that way.

A rainy day is as good excuse as any to check out our local library 🌈
Thank you to the tagged publishers for the free books! | I’m officially on spring break, which means I finally have time for some extra long reading sessions 🤓 Here are some of the books I plan to read this week! I finished THE GIRL HE USED TO KNOW by Tracy Garvis Graves this past weekend (review to come), and I’m currently reading QUEENIE by Candice Carty-Williams + HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE and am loving both! ✨ Wishing you all a wonderful start into your week 🤗
💛Werbung💛 Was lest ihr gerade?📚🤓
Im Moment lese ich immer noch "Black Forest High" und bin da auf Seite 140🤓 Ab morgen kommt dann noch "Fake Roomie - Liebe braucht keine Regeln" dazu, denn das Buch lese ich mit ein paar anderen Bloggern zusammen in einer Leserunde😁 Alle, die noch mit ihrem eigenen Exemplar des Buches mitlesen wollen, können sich übrigens gerne noch dazu gesellen🤓
Hier ist erstmal der Klappentext des Buches:
1. Wir verbringen keine Nächte zusammen.
2. Wir vermeiden es, uns nackt zu sehen.
3. Wir küssen uns niemals auf den Mund.
4. Wir gehen auf keinen Fall miteinander ins Bett.
5. Wir verlieben uns nicht!
Sich stets zu nehmen, was er will, hat Cameron Jefferson zu dem gemacht, was er heute ist: Vermögend, erfolgreich, gefragt. Nur bei Amy Watson – seit Jahren seine beste Freundin – hält sich der attraktive Geschäftsmann zurück. Das klappt aber nur, weil Cameron die Regeln seiner sogenannten Freundschaftsformel streng befolgt – bis Amy ihn darum bittet, ihr bei der Besichtigung ihres Traumhauses mit Rat und Tat zur Seite zu stehen. Denn die Eigentümerin lässt durchblicken, dass Pärchen bevorzugt werden. Was liegt also näher, als sich als eins auszugeben und das Haus gemeinsam zu beziehen? Vorerst. Dass Cameron dazu die 1. Regel brechen muss, heißt ja nicht, dass er auch gegen die anderen verstoßen wird. Oder?
Introducing one of my most anticipated reads of the year (seriously read the synopsis below- you'll die) Middlegame by Seanan McGuire.
Out May 2019
PS did you hear the news today that her Wayward Children series is officially becoming a tv show? We are #blessed .
Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.
Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.
Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.
Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.
There's so much pressure when someone asks you for a book recommendation, isn't there? I feel like my brain goes into overdrive, trying to think of the perfect book for them to read. Then, cue the panic that you feel until they've finished it, worrying if they'll like it or not. There really is no greater feeling than finding out that they enjoyed it! Anyone else get those nerves?!
It's our youngest's second birthday today...which is totally crazy, I'm not sure where the time has gone! Sadly I've been in bed unwell all day, and Mr Moore has taken the day off to entertain the girls. I haven’t even been able to get any reading done. ☹️ I'm hoping I'll feel well enough later.
Happy Monday, bookstagrammers! I hope you've all had great starts to the week and have managed to fit plenty of reading in!
