-john steinbeck

qotd: when/where do you reflect on your life?
aotd: nature has always been an escape for me. sitting in silence watching nature helps me clear my mind. reading books helps me to understand things outside of myself. nature and books. hence, my bookstagram. this account is basically like looking into my soul.

“do you know why books such as this are so important? they have quality. and what does the word quality mean? to me, it means texture. this book has pores. it has features. this book can go under the microscope. you'd find life under the glass screaming past an infinite profusion. the more pores, the more truthfully recorded details of life per square inch you can get on a sheet of paper the more literary you are. that's my definition anyway. telling detail. fresh detail.”
-ray bradbury, fahrenheit 451

qotd: sunday plans?
aotd: church and then my husband is taking me on a birthday surprise for my birthday tomorrow.

“we need the tonic of wildness...at the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. we can never have enough of nature.”
-henry david thoreau

Hey reader friends!
have you read the wren hunt? if yes, what did you think about it?

mini review/ recommendation:
synopsis : every winter, wren silke is chased through the forest in a warped version of a childhood game. the boys who hunt her are judges, powerful and frightening pursuers, who know nothing of her true identity. if they knew she was a augur, their sworn enemy, the game would turn deadly.
but wren is on the hunt, too. sent undercover as an intern to the harkness foundation - enemy headquarters - her family's survival rest on finding a secret meant to stay hidden.
as the enmity between two ancient magic reaches breaking point, wren is torn between old loyalties and new lies. and trapped in the most dangerous game of her life.

i must say, this was an interesting but different kind of book. it has a bit of magical realism to it. is it a thriller or a love story? not exactly. the premises of the story is set in a fictional village in ireland called kilshamble. where on every st. stephen's day a game of chased is played. where a group of masked boys chases symbolically a fake wren.

wren is an augur or a seer, who lives with her grandfather. their magic is getting weak, in order to save her family and tribe she goes undercover as an intern to their arc rivals the judges, to find a map which will locate ancient magical stones to restore their power. but, wren discovers there are more secrets that her family is keeping from her.

watson creates a different kind of atmosphere where in ancient magic coexists in the modern world. it's dark and bit creepy, also a bit of love interest. as for character i liked the main protagonist wren, she was brave, fearless and feisty girl.
overall i enjoyed reading this book which i received in my subscription book box from @booksnbeyondbox
my rating 🌟🌟🌟
do i recommend reading? yes!

she knew her place in the world -
she would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
she wouldn't adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”
-nikki rowe

We dropped our sweet foster daughter off at a leadership conference 5 hours away from us for a week. she cried when we left and wouldn’t tell us what was wrong. i knew she was already home sick and just got a text that said, “i’m fine. i just didn’t want you guys to leave.” i picture dropping her off at college in a year and having the same scenario. i’m so proud of this kid. she’s been a huge blessing in our lives.

and i got to see my long lost cousin. i needed her hug.

“any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. these pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of godlight’ in the woods of our experience.”

“life is like the river, sometimes it sweeps you gently along and sometimes the rapids come out of nowhere.”
-emma smith

while kayaking, we explored every slough of the river. we found a small spring, parked out kayak, and walked the creek. we ended up finding an old mill on our adventures. •
