Ljubavne priče (Hese) – Svi odgovori svode se na isto: život ima smisao jedino kroz ljubav...
Ljubav je opsesivno osećanje koje je presudno uticalo na čitavo delo kultnog pisca, nobelovca i autora velikih romana svetske književnosti: Igra đinđuvama, Sidarta i Stepski vuk. U ovoj knjizi, antologijskom i najobimnijem izboru ljubavnih priča Hermana Hesea, otkrivamo sasvim novo lice pisca koji je prikazao mnoge mračne ali i svetle strane ljudskih emocija. Ove priče su upravo posledica takvog putovanja do ljubavi i natrag, koje vodi kroz samo središte duše.
… što više volimo i što smo više sposobni za predavanje, time je smisleniji naš život. S verovanjem u to „što Sidarta naziva ljubav” može se živeti. – Herman Hese

It's high time you look forward and stop waiting for the past. .
It's time you take the leap of faith and become stronger.
It's time you start living instead of just existing
It's time you tell your problems that they are no longer in control and that you are gonna beat the shit out of them.
It's time to become happy again, to meet new people, to have new experiences, to rise from the dirt and to fly like a phoenix.
In an ideal world with no chores and if you had all the time in the world, would you still read? As much as I love reading with a nice cuppa along, I also like to take walks in the parks, tuck in a good movie and have long conversations with my fav people. Being between pages is great but this beautiful world has so much more to offer isn't it?🌻

Our latest #2019StellaPrize shortlist author interview is with Melissa Lucashenko, author of Too Much Lip.
In it Melissa shares with us how she likes to write, the musicians, authors and filmmakers who inspire her work and a favourite line from her book. See link in bio.
Only 4 stories in Married Love lived up to my expectations. These are the title story, and the following; ____________________*She’s the One
Great story, if one overlooks two things; the late focus on a character and the ending that felt a bit too forced, too fabricated.
I love how the story has potential to be expanded from different angles, apparently that’s one of the signs of a good story too :) _________________________ *In the cave
A 7-page, beautiful and intentionally symbolic piece about Linda, a woman presuming one-sided love and trying to protect her heart from what might follow.
First sentence; “AFTER THE SEX, he fell asleep.” (p. 193) "But she wasn’t in love, though she had been ready to be. Love sank down gently from where it had been swollen in expectation – she imagined a red balloon deflating to a foolish remnant." (p. 194) ___________________*Post-Production
Great beginning, build-up & ending. Story took many unexpected turns that could have felt forced under different authorship but here, Hadley makes me want to give her another chance :) First sentence;
“ALBERT ARNO, THE FILM director, dropped dead at his home in the middle of a sentence.”
The rest is an engaging, unpredictable drama involving the film director’s widow, brother, step-son and mistress. •
I didn’t like the other 8 stories because of the seemingly forced symbolism, the usage of many big words (sesquipedality, apparently :) and the seemingly forced endings.
I couldn’t help but notice her overuse of the word copse :) Overall, I’d recommend Hadley, her writing reminds me of Ann Beattie’s in some parts.

Chloe Reardon has a problem, and his name is Gavin Wallace.
Okay, Gavin isn’t exactly a problem, unless you consider a highly attractive wind vampire with dubious intentions a problem. Especially if that vampire is your boss. With an affinity for kilts and excellent taste in music.
But none of that matters because Chloe Reardon has had enough of dangerous men. Danger is overrated. Danger is the opposite of sexy. So Gavin is the last man—or vampire—on earth she needs to let into her heart.
Except what if the most dangerous man you knew was also the one who made you feel the strongest?

“Instead of disappearing, she makes me feel reappeared. Reimagined. Her touch shapes me, draws out the boldness that had been hiding in my core.”
I seen this quotes when going through goodreads and I loved it I dug a little deeper and discovered it’s from Girls Of Paper And Fire. I think I might start this book in April I’ve had it for a few months now and just haven’t been able to get it.
Have any of you read it? How was it?

3/5. First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung. These types of memoirs hit really close to home. I learned a lot about the Cambodian Genocide and it’s so heartbreaking and horrific. I really wanted to give this a 4 but I think the writing from the vantage point of a 5-8 year old was all over the place at times. I also just learned that this is a Netflix movie produced and directed by Angelina Jolie.
Until the age of five, Loung Ung lived in Phnom Penh, one of seven children of a high-ranking government official. She was a precocious child who loved the open city markets, fried crickets, chicken fights, and sassing her parents. While her beautiful mother worried that Loung was a troublemaker—that she stomped around like a thirsty cow—her beloved father knew Loung was a clever girl.
When Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge army stormed into Phnom Penh in April 1975, Ung’s family fled their home and moved from village to village to hide their identity, their education, their former life of privilege. Eventually, the family dispersed in order to survive. Loung trained as a child soldier in a work camp for orphans, while other siblings were sent to labor camps. As the Vietnamese penetrated Cambodia, destroying the Khmer Rouge, Loung and her surviving siblings were slowly reunited.
Bolstered by the shocking bravery of one brother, the courage and sacrifices of the rest of her family—and sustained by her sister’s gentle kindness amid brutality—Loung forged on to create for herself a courageous new life. Harrowing yet hopeful, insightful and compelling, this story is truly unforgettable. #memoir#cambodia#genocide#vietnam#war#freedom#refugees
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. :)

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
One of my favorite parts of this book revolve around the topic of self-sabotaging our own creativity:
📝 “Some of the malevolent complexes’ favorite thieveries and punishments of women’s creativity revolve around promising the soul-self “time to create” somewhere of in the foggy future. Or promising that when one has several days in a row free, then the rumpus will begin at last. It’s hogwash.”
This is just a way to suffocate the creative impulse further.
Another great way of suffocating creativity is Only-iffing; Only if I had a such and such degree then my work would be decent. Only if I receive such and such thing...
Many put their talents in the back burner:
📝 “I’ve seen women insist on cleaning everything in the house before they could sit down to write.... and you know it’s a funny thing about house cleaning... it never comes to an end. Perfect way to stop a woman.” 🧹
How do you nourish and protect your creative life? And if you don’t; How do you procrastinate? 🤔
(And yes! A Review of Women Who Runs With The Wolves is coming soon!) 🐺
