#flashback to last weeks #ArtSmash, my #birthday edition! Happy to announce that my #painting was NOT SMASHED! That in itself was an amazing gift, though I also had a fantastic night, and am so honored and proud to know and #love you all. ;)

Some yellow and green books because I love the cover of #AfterAlice by #gregorymaguire under the dust jacket soooo much. It's this tie dye map aesthetic, like A+ cover design 🌼🍀 Also featuring: #truelettersfromafictionallife by #kennethlogan , #untilbeth by @lisa_amowitz , and #thegirlwiththedragontattoo by #steiglarsson 🌼🍀 None of which I have actually read yet... But I own them all so obviously they're on my TBR and LOOK AT THOSE COVERS 🌼🍀 #bookstagram #books #bookish #bookaddict #bookaholic #yellowbooks #greenbooks

I'm in the mood to lose myself something really epic and fantastical, so I've started re-reading an old favorite - all of the books in "The Wicked Years" by Gregory Maguire ^^ #노미미 #mimiroh #wicked #위키드 #gregorymaguire #전자책 #킨들 #amazonkindle #kindleoasis #혼자놀기 #읽스타그램 #책 #책스타그램 #데일리 #데일리그램 #인스타 #인스타그램 #ilovereading #ebook #ereader #영어 #영어책 #북스타그램

#Bibliophile2017 - Favourite cover. It's still sitting in my TBR pile, but this was a total cover buy from last year.

Fuga nos livros (@fuganoslivros)

Oi pessoal! Esse livro eu li ano passado! Estava interessada em assistir ao musical mas não sabia do que se tratava.
.
Wicked narra as histórias das vidas das bruxas de Oz por uma perspectiva bem diferente. Eu o li antes do Mágico de Oz e gostei bastante do final 💚
.
Apesar da leitura não ter me prendido tanto no início, da metade da história até o final eu acabei me apegando aos personagens e gostei.

This counts as a sparkling picture, right? 🤓✨ I need props.
Anyway, this is one of my awesome $0.50 finds, and although I haven't read anything Oz (and I've hardly seen the movie(s?) either!! 😱), I want to read this one ☺️

Current reads & financial planning, a not-so-lazy Sunday morning. I painted my nails yesterday so I had to make sure and get at least one photo in before I wreck them as usual

I've made a conscious effort to revisit things I've loved in the past. From music to literature. Indeed its been an amazing Saturday.

Gregory Maguire work creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. I have always been interested in the Broadway musical Wicked so once I saw this book on the shelf I had to buy it. Plus the pages are green so it's an eye catcher.


Gregory Maguire crea un mundo de fantasía tan rica y viva que nunca vamos a mirar a Oz de la misma manera. He estado siempre interesada en el Musical de Broadway Wicked así que una vez que vi este libro en el estante tenía que comprarlo. Las páginas son verdes por lo que es un atrapa ojos.

"A notion of character, not so much discredited as simply forgotten, once held that people only came into themselves partway through their lives. They woke up, were they lucky enough to have consciousness, in the act of doing something they already knew how to do." -Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire || This is how I feel about art. It woke me. #fictionmeetsreality #artistasmagician #oz #gregorymaguire #sonofawitch #wicked #themagicschool #bookquotes #wethelucky

Love the bookish quotes that came in The Bookish Box's "Bookish Notes 2017"! And of course, I'm in love with the Les Miserables bookmark too.

Acabou o mistério! Wicked é minha leitura atual (mas li muito pouco. Culpa de Westworld).
.
Comprei na bienal de Minas Gerais (2016) e na época ele era lançamento aqui, mas a história já faz um super sucesso nos musicais da Broadway e agora em São Paulo 💚 (alguém assistiu?)
.
O livro traz uma nova perspectiva da Terra de Oz. Ele é mais focado na vida de Elfaba, a bruxa má do Oeste. A improvável amizade com Glinda (a bruxa boa) e quando elas se apaixonam pelo mesmo homem - se tornando rivais.

The endlessly thinking about yourself...
⚫️
I had an anxiety attack yesterday. I did everything I could to get ready to go out last night to a TKE event with Andrew: I listened to good music, I took deep breaths...I changed clothes at least eight times. Nothing fit. My hair was terrible. My makeup was fab but I felt ugly and stupid and worthless. When Andrew gave me an out, I cried half my makeup off and changed back into a sweatshirt. Great, heaving sobs. I texted him that I was "a failure and a coward," and I meant it.
Y'all, this hasn't happened in a while.
Then I read this paragraph in Gregory Maguire's Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister this afternoon. Oh, to be a nail on the hoof of a horse! Something insensible and dull for a change. To not worry so much about myself and my place in the world.
This mental illness struggle is ongoing and requires vigilance. I have to take care of myself, remember to breath, and remind myself that I MATTER.
Guess what? You matter, too. 💜
