I keep changing my KEY😅
But looks like I'll use this DOTs because they are simpler.
there aren't many decorations I use in this spread because I dont have much time to decorate it due to overwork and not feeling well. I only printed a flower paper that I found on Pinterest and pasted it.
You can also see that I'm less productive from this spread. Hm~ I need to fix it next week.
“Uma mente bem informada, é a melhor segurança contra o contágio da insensatez e do vício. A mente vaga está sempre à procura de alívio e pronta para mergulhar no erro, para escapar do langor da ociosidade.
Carrega-a de ideias, ensine-a o prazer de pensar, e as tentações do mundo lá fora serão contrabalanceadas pelas gratificações derivadas do mundo de dentro.” 🍁

❝As regras existiam por um motivo: se você as seguisse, teria sucesso; se não as seguisse, talvez acabasse ateando fogo ao mundo.❞⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shaker Heights é uma cidade cuja fundação foi meticulosamente planejada beirando a perfeição e tudo que não for convencional é mal visto por lá.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Elena, nascida e criada em Shaker Heights, segue religiosamente as regras e foi graças ao seu planejamento que conquistou a vida que sempre quis: um marido amoroso, um emprego estável e quatro filhos que têm de tudo.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mia e sua filha Pearl são recém-chegadas e as novas inquilinas de Elena. Seu passado é um mistério, já que Mia sempre viveu como nômade trabalhando com a fotografia. Sempre que um projeto era entregue, as duas iam atrás de uma nova cidade com novas inspirações. Mas dessa vez, se estabilizariam em Shaker Heights e levariam uma vida normal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Duas famílias diferentes que se cruzam e seus opostos podem criar faíscas, que por sua vez podem criar pequenos incêndios por toda parte.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
O tema central é o que une personagens tão distintas entre si: a maternidade. Planejamento familiar, adoção, gravidez indesejada. A autora utiliza dramas familiares para abrir um leque e expor preconceitos (sejam eles raciais ou de classes), questões éticas, obsessões e que o comum é apenas um ponto de vista.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honestamente, no começo tudo parece monótono demais. Mas à medida que as páginas são viradas, a leitura é fluida e rápida o suficiente para absorver cada detalhe. Celeste tem a sabedoria necessária para escrever sobre o cotidiano e construir várias camadas relevantes. O desfecho conta com a certeza de que a perfeição são várias mentiras encobertas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Não é um livro pra se divertir. Não tem requintes, nem reviravoltas mirabolantes. Ele é reflexivo e cru com pontos altos e baixos. É mais profundo do que as palavras podem sugerir e mais raso do que as altas expectativas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s Saturday—my favorite day of the week—which means I’ll be heading to the library before I do my errands for the day. Do you have a library routine? I try to go once a week; I find that I do less book buying if I make it a set day. Little steps to book buying self-control! #victory 😂🥰
Growing up Anayat ullah and Naseem hijazi were the authors I first read. And which I still love.
My mom and family were really big fans of these two and I also joined this little fan club. Specially their way of describing scenarios. ❤️ Which doesn't make one boring while reading about technicalities of war.
So coming up to review, I thought what good post on 23rd March than a novel on Pakistan army and 6th sept.
This book was published just a few while after 1965 war and whenever I read it. It makes me realize that situation isn't that different. Specially when a few days ago when India tried to break into our territory we reacted the same way and we were ready to die for Pakistan.
📌 The protagonists of the novel hajra is a girl who's parents migrated from kashmir before her birth and who died due to hypothermia. She starts working as house maid in very young age. And crave for love until she realizes that she has all grown-up and men try to take advantage of her.
📌 Iqbal is a useless rich brat who think every girl can be seduced by money or some words. Who loses his eyes in the war yet becomes more happy due to his faith.
📌 Subedar akbar a man who is just like all other men who see a girl of lower status and take advantage of her.
📌 Afzaal the wolf in the skin of sheep who tries to destroy our country pretending like being a Normal harmless person
📌Captain asmat who is a little too practical
📌 BRB the most important character in this novel who will never stop flowing insha Allah as it's made by Pakistanis 🇵🇰 And all those people we see in our daily life are in here.
The best part about this novel is that it has a perfect blend of everything in it. And it doesn't feels like that the whole situation and society belongs to nearly half century. Whenever I read it I feel more and more patriotic. 🇵🇰
And even makes you realize the flaws in our society and how not all what glitters is gold .
Will I recommend?
Yes yes yes.. Anayat ullah is such a great writer
Rating 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Have you read Anayat ullah's work?
P. S. happy Pakistan day🇵🇰 #parhlikh#bookstagram#bookstagrampk#urdu#urdubooks#pakarmy#pakistaniblogger#novel#pakistan

The table is set for a hard boiled story! (😬). I adored Ray Celestin’s previous two books in this series so have really been looking forward to this one! (I even broke my book ban for it! 😜) The first one is set in New Orleans, the second in Chicago and this one in New York. 👍🏻
In Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, a family is preparing for Hurricane Katrina. Told in Jesmyn Wards signature lush language, she deftly describes a family in all their dysfunction trying to scrape together the limited resources they have to prepare for the oncoming storm. The characters in this book are so vivid and flawed they seem to exist separate of the page. A father who is largely absent and a heavy drinker, still dealing with the ripple effects of losing his wife. Esch, a fourteen year old girl who has tried to find love in others bodies and has recently found out she’s pregnant. Skeetah, a boy who devotes all of his time to his prized pit bull China and the new puppies she has birthed. Finally, Randall and Junior, who are trying to find footing within a family that is short on parenting and guidance. As Katrina gains ground, the family grasp on to what they can of each other and try not to be pulled apart.
This book was a punch in the gut and I was left breathless by the end of it. Ward is one of those writers that tells a story and each time I think “No one else could ever tell this story.” Her writing is always atmospheric but I really think it reaches another level in this book as she describes the sizzling heat and humidity full of the oncoming storm. Reading her Author Q&A, she talks about how she lived through Hurricane Katrina and felt the need to write about it and this comes across in the urgency of her words and her descriptions of Katrina. She also says that she felt compelled to write about Katrina because so many people criticized those who stayed before/during/after the storm. I think she does a great job addressing that in this book as it deftly shows the restrictive realities of rural poverty.
Overall, a book I won’t soon forget. One I feel like I will return to again.
