i love this print from @lucyintheskycreations so much because it reminds me of what i’m always trying to teach my daughters. that true beauty comes from within and a smile is the best accessory.

‘that kind of self-respect is a discipline, a habit of mind that can never be faked but can be developed, trained, coaxed forth. it was once suggested to me that, as an anti-dote to crying, i put my head in a paper bag. as it happens, there is a sound physiological reason, something to do with oxygen, for doing exactly that, but the psychological effect alone is incalculable: it is difficult in the extreme to continue fancying oneself cathy in wuthering heights with one's head in a food fair bag. there is a similar case for all the small disciplines, unimportant in themselves; imagine maintaining any kind of swoon, commiserative or carnal, in a cold shower.’ 💛 what a joy it was to read didion’s words. from the humorous quote above, to the sublime john wayne, a love song to the riveting on keeping a notebook; this book of essays is a beautiful collection of her thoughts. of course, i fell in love with some essays more than others, but as a whole it’s a didion dream. 🙏🏻💕 #joandidion #slouchingtowardsbethlehem #picadormodernclassics

Happy friday! i ended up spending entirely too much time on this. 😂 it started out as two books and then one thing led to another. and here we are. i literally took every book off my shelf to make this happen. my rainbow section is completely obliterated, so i’ll be spending a good portion of my night fixing that. 😆

comment 38 star 392 10 hours ago

My return to indian fiction—after a longish hiatus—with jerry pinto's much-feted "em and the big hoom" was promising at first, but eventually, an underwhelming experience. a debut effort with the unmistakeable intimacy of a memoir, this novel is a portrait of the quotidian terrors and uncertainties of living with and caring for a person afflicted with schizophrenia. the narrative, a first-person account of one such troubled woman's unnamed son, is an amalgam of memories, free-wheeling conversations, diary entries, and (often incomplete) epistles. much of the novel's promise lies in the gentle strokes with which the love story of imelda, the beedi-smoking, tea-drinking, snarky em, and augustine, the sturdy, quiet, pillar of fortitude—the big hoom—is painted. their romance offers us glimpses into the quirks and culture of roman catholic families with portuguese origins, particularly of those who moved from goa to bombay in pre-liberalised india.

but while there is much local colour and idiom to lend it the power of believability, the story is all too soon let down by an absent plot, manifesting itself in a weak final act. the writing is mostly tender, with flashes of delicious wit, but what appears to be an attempt at restraint slips into impotency—a silent death by unnecessary explications, lazy sentences, and limp prose. the poverty of its imagination is best exemplified in the surfeit of questions and aliases punctuating the pages—oddly, for a book about mental illness, it has very little madness about it. while it is laudably brave for pinto to address with much honesty difficult questions about coping with the cruelties of a diseased person, the profundity and pain of it all somehow dissipates on the page, well before it can make its way to the reader. in the end, i was left completely, and regrettably, unmoved.

hi friends, i just got home from manila via 24-hour ship ride. i had so much fun and i'm sad to part with the capital city for now, but i also can't wait to catch up on bookstagram, while i've been gone for a week. i had a huge book haul in manila, both from thrift sales and nbs, and i can't wait to share my purchases with you guys soon! (note: whichwood is part of my haul, and i'm halfway through! it's a wonderful story). anyways, i had fun adventures in manila and i'll be back there soon! 💕 in the meantime, i hope everyone's having a good day, i spent half of mine catching up on sleep 😂

انگار مسیرم تا رسیدن به جایگاه متهم قرار بود تا ابد ادامه پیدا کند و وقتی بلاخره توانستم بنشینم، دیگر نتوانستم جلوِ خودم را بگیرم. قلبم تندتند می‌تپید و بدنم بی‌اراده می‌لرزید. گریه‌ام گرفت و فقط یک کلمه را مدام زیر لب زمزمه می‌کردم: مامان.
فرایند ملال‌آور محاکمه شروع شد ولی من نمی‌توانستم تمرکز کنم؛ انگار از قبل مشخص شده بود که قرار است به اعدام محکومم کنند. من هواپیمای پرواز 858 هواپیمایی کره جنوبی را منفجر کرده بودم. من مسئول مرگ صد و پانزده انسان بودم..."

Tarian dua wajah
penulis: s. prasetyo utomo
harga: 55.000
dewi laksmi seperti ditakdirkan sebagai titisan terakhir nyai laras, leluhur di daerahnya yang pada masa silam menjadi penari istana yang amat tenar di seantero negeri. syahdan, dalam perjalanannya sebagai penari, laksmi kelak dipertemukan dengan aji, keturunan nyai laras, yang sejak berusia satu tahun telah ditinggalkan oleh ibu dan ayahnya. ayah aji, sukro, mendekam di penjara akibat terlibat kasus pembunuhan dan perampokan. sementara sang ibu, aya, memilih minggat ke luar pulau, menjadi penyanyi klub malam. bagaimana kehidupan keturunan nyai laras dan bagaimana dewi laksmi bisa menjadi titisan penari legendaris itu?
dirajut dengan gaya cerita realis-imajinatif yang menjadi ciri khas cerita-cerita sang penulis, pembaca seolah dihanyutkan oleh alur cerita dan pertemuan para tokohnya yang tak terduga. inilah novel tentang tari, pilihan jalan hidup, problem keluarga, cinta, keteguhan hati, spiritualitas, hingga mistik. semua kisah itu diukir dengan kata-kata puitis dan disajikan dalam cerita yang apik, menawan, dan penuh inspirasi. *** novel ini menghanyutkan perasaan dan emosi pembaca ke dalam arus dan pusaran cerita yang mengesankan sejak awal hingga akhir.
----- ahmad tohari, sastrawan, penulis trilogi ronggeng dukuh paruk.
gaya penulisan s. prasetyo utomo sangat unik dengan penggunaan kata-kata puitis yang ringan dan dapat mudah dicerna oleh pembaca. proses pembentangan antara cinta dan maut digambarkan secara ganjil, lalu membawa kita ke akhir cerita yang mencengangkan.

wie ihr vielleicht wisst habe ich ja seit etwas längerer zeit ein bullet journal. das liegt daran, dass ich irgendwie so einen organisationtick habe😂 ich weiß auch nicht, ich plane so viele sachen.. alltägliche, schule etc. manchmal bin ich von mir selbst genervt, dass ich einfach alles durchplane😂
außerdem bin ich auch noch richtig schüchtern, auch wenn das vielleicht viele in meinem umkreis nicht erwarten, weil ich immer versuche es zu überspielen.. #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #pagesofapril18 #verrateeinkleinesgeheimnis #saveme #booklove #leseratte #buecherwurm #fruehlingsfeed

Happy saturday! .
new review for the weekend: vladimir nabokov’s lolita (continued in comments)

so this was an amazing read.

lolita probably needs no introduction – a lot of people know the premise without ever having read it (the kubrick film certainly helped with this). and, despite this, a lot of people seem to have particular opinions on the “morality” of the book, which is always interesting in a book they've ever read.

literature is a space in which we should be challenged – including our views, understanding of the world – and lolita is one such dislocating book that does exactly that.

it's the story of the “doomed” humbert humbert, a middle-aged professor with an infatuation/ twisted s****l obsession for 12-year-old “lolita.” the important thing to remember about the novel is that it is told entirely from humbert's point of view, apart from a couple of pages at the start from a fascinated and revolted doctor who treated him. the subject matter of lolita is uncomfortable and hideous, but nabokov knows this – this novel is hardly a defence of these desires. it is an interrogation of the delusional lengths to which humbert will go to defend his actions and protect himself from the knowledge of what he is doing – although at the same time he is also incredibly self-aware, but till manages to bypass any ethical scruples he feel to satisfy his urges.
