Besides reading, visiting thrift stores is another passion of mine. We went to a few this weekend in The Berkshires, and I spotted this vintage card catalog for $125. Needless to say, it didn't make it home with me, but it sure did bring back good memories of my elementary school days hanging out in the local library!
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
This book is written with such empathy; it's full of tragedy, hurt, sadness but also courage, love and redemption.
It tells the stories of four Chinese immigrant families in San Francisco. It goes back and forth through the childhood of the Chinese mothers in pre-1950's China, and the the stories of their American born children. There is constant tension between the mothers and daughters, but there is also love. Misunderstandings arise when the nuances of the mothers' wisdom cannot be translated to English, with the mothers speaking broken English and the daughters speaking broken Chinese meaning is lost in translation. .
"My mother and I never really understood one another. We translated each other's meanings and I seemed to hear less than what was said, while my mother heard more." .
. "[I] looked in the mirror. I was surprised at what I saw. I had on a beautiful red dress, but what I saw was even more valuable. I was strong. I was pure. I had genuine thoughts inside that no one could see, that no one could take away from me. I was like the wind."
. "She cried 'No choice! No choice!' She doesn't know. If she doesn't speak, she is making a choice. If she doesn't try, she can lose her chance forever." .

He estado fuera de IG todo el día. #AllIWantForJanuaryIsABook Challenge: día 17: Lectura angustiosa/preocupante/depresiva (¿Cómo traduzco "Angsty" ): Sinsajo de seguro. Digo, tenemos personajes que viene con trauma de uno y hasta dos Juegos del Hambre, muerte, sufrimiento, es de esperarse que sean "angsty" (En serio, ¿cómo lo traduzco?).
I've been so busy all day I haven't been checking IG. #AllIWantForJanuaryIsABook Challenge: day 17: Angsty read: Mockingjay for sure. I mean, we have characters that have been through one and even two Hunger Games, deaths, and suffering, it is expect to be a little angsty. ||

But that's not the reason I'm writing/reposting.
Well, it's not the *only* reason.
I just want to say that @kath_reads is one of the kindest people I've "met" in the #bookstagram community
I like her energy.
Also, she calls me 'Ms. Britney' in our PM's. Anyway, thank you Kath for taking a chance on an indie and a "newbie" to this platform. You're the kind of person who makes me think that maybe I'm not too "old" for it after all. #Repost@kath_reads with @repostapp
Happy Release Day to #BritneyKing's #DeadInTheWater.
He’s a contract killer. She likes to even the score. Smack dab in the middle of suburbia, few married couples are as competitive as Jude and Kate. But then, most married couples don't keep score in the form of body counts. Each hell-bent on a silent pact to out-do the other, the games begin.
Who ends up on top is anyone’s guess. But with these two, one thing’s for sure - not everyone comes out alive. After all, there are a few things they can agree on: All is fair in love and war. And if they can’t make it work - they’re dead in the water. (Goodreads)
I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I read Water Under The Bridge (Book 1) last year and I loved it. Jude and Kate instantly became my OTP. King's writing style is incredible and the plot is very unique. It's dark and twisted and I love it.
I'll be posting my full review on my blog when I got home.
Yo yiggity-yo. So today was insanely busy. However, I'm finally able to chill at home and sip tea while watching whatever terrible show I find on Netflix because I need cheesiness in my life. That being said, I've had zero time to read which has been depressing. Yay final semester though.
It's time to keep on keeping on bookish peeps.
"Alex Gino's heart-warming book examines the subtle ways in which society inadvertently reinforces gender roles, bringing to light how harmful such behaviors can be. Further topics covered include the importance of being open minded toward another person's perspective, what it's like to feel trapped in the wrong body, and the importance of practicing empathy."
