Номер 5 за 2018. Книгата е първа от серията "Братята Торсен". Доста слаб сюжет, доста слаби герои, доста слаб изказ (дано не се дължи на лош превод). Успях да се насиля да довърша книгата само благодарение на принцида да не оставям книга наполовина. Но принципът ми щеше сериозно да пострада, ако книжката не се състоеше само от 9 глави. Евтинко четиво, ако имате мнооого време за губене и малък избор за четене. В никой случай не давайте пари - книгата я има онлайн в chitanka.info

I'm definitely no where near the best bullet journaler (is that a word) but I really like keeping a bullet journal and experimenting with different spreads so I might start sharing snaps of it on here also. This week is also the o-week at my new university and I'm so excited, my new campus is so gorgeous and the libraries are ten times bigger than the one at my old uni ✨

“One of the reasons why we crave love, and seek it so desperately, is that love is the only cure for loneliness, and shame, and sorrow. But some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again. Some truths about yourself are so painful that only shame can help you live with them. And some things are just so sad that only your soul can do the crying for you.” -Shantaram, Gregory David Roberts
Shantaram is a 2003 novel by Gregory David Roberts, in which a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin addict who escaped from Pentridge Prison flees to India. The novel is commended by many for its vivid portrayal of tumultuous life in Bombay.
This is my favourite read of 2016. Highly recommended for everyone. The writing style is surreal and the plot is fantastic. It’s based in Bombay which is one of my favourite cities and his writing provides such an accurate picture of the culture and setting of all the diverse people of the city. Interestingly, the story is actually based on the author himself, which only makes all his ordeals and experiences all the more compelling to read about.
QOTD: Have any of you read Shantaram?

Cinder is a book I wanna read soon. Like almost all the books on my bookshelf, well... But I'm really excited whether I like it or not, cause I'm not sure yet.
Yesterday I was at a bookstagram meeting and I bought three books. The first is wonder woman warbringer by leigh bardugo, I just love leigh bardugo's books so I had to but this. Usually I'm not really into superheroes, but I'm excited. The next one is Jackaby by William Ritter. This was really spontaneous, but well it sounds interesting and I like the cover.... The last one is the hate u give by angie thomas and my pauls made me buy it. They (Paula and Paulina) both love it and so I just had to buy it. And many people seem to love it.

Currently I'm reading Caraval, but I have it in the ebook version and well there are a few letters and it's super hard to read them, but possible. So far I like it, it's pretty different and special, but on the other hand like many other books.

‘No matter how many people try to criticize you, the best revenge is to prove that they’re wrong’
hello ✨
Wie versprochen, habe ich neue Bilder gemacht. YEAH 🎊😱🎉😅
Ich hoffe das ihr eine schöne Woche hattet, meine war... sehr abwechslungsreich 😬 Durch die Ferien hatte ich mal wieder viel Zeit zum nachdenken. Ich habe meine Gedanken mal etwas sortiert und mir Zeit für mich genommen. Dabei waren mir die Meinungen von meinen Freunden zu meinen Entscheidungen oder Überlegungen (da diese nicht so erfreut darüber waren), einfach mal egal. Ich habe geschaut, was für mich das beste ist und habe gemerkt, dass mir letztendlich die Motivation für das Abitur fehlt. Ich habe erst vor zwei Tagen mit meiner Facharbeit angefangen, obwohl ich das Thema bereits seit November kenne und bin erst mit knapp der hälfte fertig. Ich habe weder gelernt noch sonstiges. Und meine Scheiß-Egal-Einstellung was die Schule angeht, verschwindet nicht. Ich habe mich jetzt dazu entschlossen, mich für den Job zu bewerben, den ich vorher schon ausgeübt habe. Diesmal aber in einem anderen Laden. Und ich muss sagen, der gefällt mir sogar und da ein komplett neues Team zusammengestellt wird, kann ich mir gut vorstellen da zu Arbeiten. Ich habe eine Geldanlage, um meinem Traum näher zu kommen und vielleicht weiß ich ja auch was ich später machen möchte. Vielleicht gefällt es mir ja so gut dort, dass ich da meine Ausbildung mache. Wer weiß 🤷🏼‍♀️🤔
Und alle die mich kritisieren, gerade die Leute die meinen “immer hinter mir zu stehen” die können mich mal 🙊
Für mich heißt es jetzt: Bewerbung fertig schreiben und abgeben 🙆🏼‍♀️✨
Habt noch einen schönen Freitag 😉💞

I read the book after spotting it on #idefix, expecting a nice distopic novel. However, the book was a mixture of everything and from the very beginning it becomes tiring to concentrate on all the drama - distopic world, superhero/mutant powers, romance, a girl and two boys dilemma, 17 years old heros. It looks like the author wanted to combine every literature genre in one book and consume them altogether. The inner thoughts of the young heroine seem out of blue at times and, unfortunately, it was hard to complete the whole book. It gave me pains, so I seriously consider not to bother with the remaining books of the series. Good luck to yourselves, if you decide to go through it.

I was about to go to the play at the theatres, so I just wanted to recall the story and the characters. It is several hours of reading not even a day, but what a reading it is! Blanche is such a character that flows out of the pages, Stella and Stanley are as vivid as if they are standing right in front of you! One can see their drops of sweat or their spittles while talking, such wonderfully and thoroughly written they are! It is worth both spending several hours over the book and at the play. Strongly recommended!

My second book for 2018 was "Behind Closed Doors" by B.A.Paris. Althogh I do not usually read thrillers and I had serious suspisions about the book (the explanation on the back of the book was not promising, the plot seemed quite simple and plain), I read several comments about the book and decided that I would spend the time, even if it turns out to be in vain. So I started reading the book and could not stop reading until the last word was read and reread. The book was shockingly written and you directly and immediately find yourself in Grace's shoes. I related to Grace immediately, -spoiler - suffered for Molly and could not but sign with relief at the end of the book. It all seemed classic and banal, but nooo it was too well written.

Dan Brown'un klasik tarzında yazılmış bir kitapla yaptim 2018 yılı açılışını. Başrolde Dan Brown'un klasikleşen karakteri Robert Langdon ve onun ortasında kaldığı karmaşık bir din/bilim/cinayet/entrika hikayesidir. Kitap çok heyecanlı, bir kere ele alırsanız, bırakmak istemeyeceğiniz tarzda, kısacası alışık olduğumuz bir kovalamaca, heyecan ve gizem dolu 530 sayfa. Kitapta bahsi geçen ve tüm dünyayı sarsacağı belirtilen buluştan fazla etkilenmedim, anlatım itibarıyla daha sarsıcı bir son bekliyordum sanırım. Ancak, tabi ki, her bir sonraki sayfayı merak ederek bitirdim kitabı, dolayısıyla zevk aldığım bir okumaydı. Her zamanki gibi tam olayı çözdüm dediğiniz anda, yeni bilgi ve keşifler ortaya çıkıyordu, o nedenle kitabı yarım bırakmak bir opsiyon bile değil. Iyi okumalar! #07012018 #danbrownbaşlangıç #danbrownorigin #kitap #kitapaşkı #kitaplar #bookstagramfeautures #bookstagramfeautures #bookstagram #book #bookshelf #reading #bookclub#singlememberbookclub #bookcomments #readable

Hi. I guess I do these posts every month where I rant about not being able to post and whatnot. This time the hiatus was longer than expected. To the point where I don’t know anything about new releases or what’s happening in the book community at all.
I won’t say I’m sorry for not posting because I’m not. Not really. I wish I was active so I could remain in contact with you people. But I was at a weird place in my life where Bookstagram suffocated me. The thought of taking a picture, editing it and posting it felt too much for me at this time. Plus, I am dealing with stress because of my university and there are some factors in my life that are keeping me off balance.
I’ve come to realise that I’m insignificant in this huge world and even in this Bookstagram community. But I always did it for my love of the books and pictures and to reach out to people who have the same interests as me. But I never want this to be forced or something I “have” to do. I WANT to be a part of Bookstagram but my mental health comes first. It’s taken me a long tome to realise that I need to come first in every facet of my life. And it’s actually very freeing.
I also believe that I don’t need to be tied down to maintaining the perfect feed or the perfect theme. I just want to take pictures that make me happy and share it with the world!
So, that is why this picture happened. I was eating the popcorn by @pop.nosh and thought let’s just take a picture of things I like. I added my diary and the pen that I received when I was very new to Bookstagram by @aquahogcodes who is an amazing human. 💕 The Bookstagram bookmark was from my very good friend @pagesofteastains who is my feed goals and is an awesome person all around! ❤️ The background is reminiscent of my old and early Bookstagram days when I never thought I’d even cross 100 followers and now I’m over 1200. 💖
Thank you for sticking around my lovelies! You make my world a lil bit better and I’m grateful for that! ✨

‘Why can’t we be like that?
Wish we could be like that.’
hey ihr 🌚
Wer von euch kennt das Lied ‘Secret Love Song’ von Little Mix? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Also ich muss schon sagen, dass ich in diesem Lied echt auf die kacke haue 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
Nein mal im ernst Leute. Lassen wir One Direction mal weg, ja? ICH HABE NOC NIE SO VIEL UND SO KRASS GEWEINT, WIE BEI DIESEM LIED!
Das Lied ist VERBOTEN TOLL! Ich muss es mir immer wieder anhören und heule die GANZE Zeit 😭💔 Ich darf dieses Lied wirklich nicht in der Öffentlichkeit hören.
Also, wenn ihr mich auf der LBM heulend seht und ich Kopfhörer in mindestens einem Ohr habe, dann läuft nur der Song und mir geht’s gut! Naja gut. Eigentlich nicht, da dieses Lied mein Herz immer wieder in tausend kleine Stücke zerfetzt 😭💔
So. Das musste ich jetzt mal eben loswerden.
Sage arbeitet ja leidenschaftlich gerne an ihrem Schmuck. Habt ihr ein Schmuckstück das euch viel bedeutet? Bei mir ist es die Kette, die ihr auf dem Bild sehen könnt. Ich habe sie letztes Jahr (warum hört sich das so verkehrt an? 😂) von meiner Mama zum Abschluss bekommen 😍❤️ Es ist eine Silberkette und der Anhänger ist in der Form meines Sternzeichens 🙈 Der Wassermann 😇🔝
Finden sich hier noch ein paar Wassermänner? ☺️💖
