Penance - Kanae Minato.

I love Japanese and Korean movies simply for their honesty, how brutal it may be for the audience, they will never left any stone upturned in showing it on screen at times it does becomes cringe worthy for a person like me who isn't so much used to see it the way they show it onscreen. That's precisely what Kanae Minato has achieved in her second novel which I finished back to back after her first one called "Confessions" that I read and reviewed last week. Confessions was more of an account of a fifth grader, what goes inside the mind (and heart) of a kid when tragedy strikes in any form. Whereas "Penance" takes it one more step forward by telling us what goes inside the mind of a parent whose kid (again a fifth grader) gets brutally raped and killed in the school premises. Going by the title I had no idea what I was getting into but as soon as I started it and a couple of pages down the line I could very well imagine where it was going to go but was I correct? O boy, she has some imagination and the way she kept throwing the twists and turns, every ten pages that I actually went numb after midways and was totally engrossed to read what came next. Superb psychological thriller this one turns out with so many twists and turns that it actually became almost the best revenge thriller that I have ever read in the recent past. Although she kept her style of narrating the same story from five different angles intact in this one too as that makes it way too interesting and engrossing to read till the very end.
Emily, a fifth grader, out of town girl gets raped and killed while playing with four of her friends after school hours in the school premise itself. But the turn of events is such that her friends had no idea how that happens so near to them and they have no recollection of the person who actually walks up to them, takes her along and does it. How that impacts the life of not only Emily parents, but the friends in question who are not able to help solve the case makes up the rest of the incredible story stretched...

Hola! Como andan? Les cuento que esta es la primera foto que subo a la cuenta sacada con una cámara 💕, todavía tengo mucho que aprender!.
El libro que pueden ver en la foto es sobre nada más que mi pintor preferido, Vincent Van Gogh. Lo compré usado y por lo tanto es una edición de 1958 en alemán 😂.
Bueno claramente no se este idioma pero la edición es hermosa y por dentro lo que acaparan sus páginas son fotos de las pinturas de él, así que no será problema.
Hoy les pregunto, que opinan de los libros usados? Yo tengo un amor grande por ellos, las ediciones son más lindas, más baratas y nos cuentan más historias de las que encierran en sus palabras.

Things we're going to ignore: 1. My hand that's holding deathly hallows looking like the exorcist 2. Halfblood prince missing bc i made a mistake and it was behind order of the phoenix rip

But other than that I'm pretty happy with this pic lmao
//
I went to a billie eilish concert yesterday and it was so cool shes so crazy talented, and kind omg she kept asking if everyone was okay and hydrated and threw water bottles in the crowd and when she was performing a (unreleased) song everyone put their flashlight on (there's a really cool pic of it on her ig @wherearetheavocados) she teared up a bit but it was sweet and beautiful

Selam 🌸
Bookstagram'ımın ilk gönderisindesin. Bu ortama girmeyi uzun zamandır istiyordum. Ama hep ikilemdeydim. Açarsam vakit ayırabilir miyim ? Bir yandan da açmayı çok istiyordum. Ve sonuç olarak burdayım. Bu ortamda sizlere kitap önerileri kitap yorumları falan fiştik paylaşacağım. Ama yeri gelecek beraber bir gece karanlığında kahve molası vereceğiz, kitap karakterlerine aşık olacağız, sevmediğimiz karakterleri çekiştirecegiz, yeri gelecek beraber dizi film izleyeceğiz, kitap sonlarını eleştireceğiz.
İlk gönderimde lafı çok uzatmak istemiyorum ama beni anladığınızı düşünüyorum. O zaman hoş buldum. 🌸 .

A totally normally currently reading stack, right? I try to get through reading slumps by reading 8 million books at the same time. It hasn’t been working well, though. I think I just need to focus on one and speed through it to feel accomplished. I also think part of the problem is when I try to read really heavy reads back to back, my brain gets tired. Need to alternate a fun read with a more serious one. Anybody else have to do that? P.S. Aren’t these anniversary flowers from my parents beautiful? •

I’ve only read one of the books in this stack 🙈 I read Salt To The Sea last year and it was incredible. Have you read any of these? .
I went out for brunch today with my bff, and she made me cookies 🙌🏻 I’m also going out for brunch with my sister tomorrow, twice in one week, I feel so decadent 😂

I’m thinking a lot about writing and the creative process at the moment and, like everything else, I’m convinced the answer is probably in a book. It’s been sinking in how big the PhD project is and how much finding a space that works - A Room of my Own (!) - matters to my productivity. ⠀

Also wearing this blazer A LOT because if I look academic, I’ll feel academic, right? #phdchat #phdlife

Luna Lovegood might just be my most favourite character in the HP universe. She's delightfully eccentric, crazy, strange, and a little bit mad, sure, but aren't we all? Luna just chose not to hide it. She didn't conform to society's assumptions about the way people should behave. She taught us that we should always - even if it should be a little hard - celebrate our individuality.

There are too many beautiful books in the world, and not nearly enough time to drown myself in them like I want to. Someone, please, just pay us all to read.

📝 Resenha: Uma janela na praia

E. Samuel | 241 páginas | Young adult | Independente | Nota: 4/5🌟

Uma janela na praia insere o leitor no mundo das férias, praias, amizades e claro, muito romance. É nesse contexto que conhecemos Carolina, uma menina como outra qualquer, pronta para desbravar a adolescência e certa de que quem manda no próprio coração é ela mesma.

Tudo isso está indo como o planejado até ela e as amigas conhecerem alguns garotos mais novos, e um deles abalar todas as suas estruturas. Mas, como seria possível apaixonar-se logo por um pirralho? A temporada de férias vai passando e elas ficando cada vez mais ligadas aos meninos do prédio ao lado.

Muita confusão, desentendimento e insegurança recheiam as páginas do livro e as aventuras desses adolescentes. Em uma época onde a troca de mensagens ainda não estava no auge, o jeito era esperar o próximo feriado para curtir a praia e conseguir falar com os amigos.

Mas, o que fazer quando a cada encontro o garoto dos seus sonhos está e a trata diferente? Carolina precisa descobrir o que fazer, se joga a real ou pula fora.

A escrita da Elaine é muito boa e envolvente, tanto que li o e-book rapidinho, em menos de dois dias. O mais engraçado é que me vi em diversas ações das meninas ao longo do livro, então essa conexão com as personagens foi bem forte.

Vale ressaltar que o final pode não vir a agradar a todos, mas preste atenção na verdadeira mensagem por trás das estrelinhas. Precisamos pensar mais em nós mesmas e fazermos a nossa própria felicidade. Isso é de extrema importância.

“Eu não sabia o que o futuro reservava para nós dois. Talvez nada. Mas, sabia o que o futuro reservava para mim: uma vida inteira pela frente”.

Se você está atrás de uma leitura leve, divertida e com aquele ar de romance, Uma janela na praia é a obra certa para isso. Obra recomendada! 😉

E ai, ficou curioso com esse livro?

"Fallen Crest. Akademia" to lekka książka Young Adult. Całkiem niezła, bo na szczęście główna bohaterka mnie nie irytowała (jak to często bywa przy tego typu pozycjach), a jej problemy nie dotyczyły tylko miłosnych rozterek 😏 Całą opinię znajdziecie na blogu 😊

Co aktualnie czytacie? ☺️
