🎓My oldest son graduated high school today! 😱 Yes, I'm old enough to have a high school graduate. No, I don't look like I am. After his graduation lunch, we passed the only Little Free Library I know of in the area and I couldn't resist snapping a photo of it. I didn't take any books or leave any books this time, though.

Peekaboo! I see you @lilyjcollins ! I finally bookmarked my #unfiltered so I am always reminded that I am NEVER alone and that Lily's words would always cheer me up when I have those "insecurity breakdowns" I also bookmarked chapter 5 for my best friend, who also has her own means of finding 'perfection' so I made sure I save that chapter when I consult to her about it. As a young journalist as well, i find hope in Chapters 15 and 16 to keep following my dreams no matter the struggle. Chapter 1,3 and 8 are my happy pill, something I flip to when I want to feel loved or merely smile. I even reserved the mom chapter of @waverlyondoheny to read and be inspired with my own mom or at least, my grandmom. Basically Lily's book is the best ever and it honestly has changed my perspective in things and made me more positive and open. For that I am forever grateful Xxx Justine #lilynoticedyay

People don't always need advice. Sometimes all they need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand. As a social worker, I understand the world around me. I lend that ear, that hand, and that heart on a daily basis. I listen without judgement. I love without boundaries. I give without expecting anything in return. As a social worker, I tend to give off an "aura" of understanding and willingness to listen to anyone I interact with. I love my career and I would never imagine doing anything else but sometimes even the social worker needs to take a break. There are a lot of professions that can truly leave their work at work. My "skill set" follows me right out the front door. People expect you to be "on" at all times, you can not be weak or show cracks in your emotions. It's hard for others to understand that even social workers don't always have it all together. That we get to the point that we can no longer give any more. We work day in and day out teaching others about the world and helping them process their issues/traumas/stresses. But who is there to do that same service for that social worker when they burn down? In this world, we compare someone's struggles to someone else's and tell them they need to not complain because they have it "easier". No one's struggles are any less then someone else's, they are just different. Social workers spend all day hearing their clients and making sure they know they are understood, to not feel so alone. Sometimes, that social worker needs that same respect in their life. . . . You have permission to rest. You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken. You do not have to try and make everyone happy. For now, take time for you. It's time to replenish you. Take care of you mind and body. Do the things that bring joy to your world. Do not allow others to dictate how you should feel about a situation. You are beautiful, you are loved, you are wanted, you are enough ❤❤❤ . . . 🌻 Tap photo for details . . . #groovebags #barnesandnoble #shelfie #bookstore #bookishtote #abundleofbooks #bookishlove #idratherbereading #eatsleepread #booklover #bookworm #bookstagram #bibliophile #books

“There are different kinds of darkness,” Rhys said. I kept my eyes shut. “There is the darkness that frightens, the darkness that soothes, the darkness that is restful.” I pictured each. “There is the darkness of lovers, and the darkness of assassins. It becomes what the bearer wishes it to be, needs it to be. It is not wholly bad or good.” ― A Court of Mist and Fury . .

[ Ngobrolin Buku ]~ "Anak laki-laki itu menyayangi si pohon… dengan amat sangat. Dan pohon itu bahagia." ~ hal. 23-25 #quote 🌿. . . Ada pro/ kontra tentang buku yang hanya memuat 53 halaman ini. Dan aku penasaran. Menurutku sendiri, buku ini lebih kepada mengingatkan kita bahwa ada baiknya nilai moral dan rasa syukur ditanamkan sejak dini. . The Giving Tree tentang 2 karakter kuat, yaitu si anak laki-laki dan si pohon yang selalu bahagia jika si anak laki-laki senang. . Mereka melewatkan banyak waktu bersama-sama ketika si anak laki-laki masih kecil. Dan pohon akan menemaninya bermain layaknya seorang ibu yang mengasihi anaknya hingga si anak tumbuh semakin besar. Namun, seiring berjalannya waktu, digambarkan si anak laki-laki ini berubah egois. Dia hanya mendatangi si pohon kala memerlukan sesuatu. Mengambil satu persatu bagian si pohon untuk memenuhi kehidupannya kemudian meninggalkannya sendirian. Hingga di suatu masa, si anak laki-laki mendatanginya untuk kali terakhir. Tubuhnya telah renta dan dia sudah lelah mengejar banyak hal sementara si pohon hanya tinggal tunggul tua. Tetapi, si pohon tetap ingin melakukan yang terbaik untuk si anak laki-laki, ditegakkannya tunggul tua untuk si anak tempat duduk dan beristirahat. . . Buku ini bukan bacaan ringan karena setelah selesai malah membuatku membaca ulang dan berpikir apa sebenarnya yang ingin disampaikan melalui cerita ini. Aku bisa saja mengatakan bahwa cerita ini tidak adil untuk si pohon karena si anak hanya mengambil saja, memanfaatkan si pohon tanpa memberikan balasan yang cukup seperti meluangkan waktu misalnya. Tetapi, aku mengambil alternatifnya. Dibalik cerita ini mengandung pesan bahwa selalu memberikan apa saja untuk kebaikan seorang anak dengan dalih kasih sayang dan kebahagiaan tidak selamanya menjadi hal yang terbaik jika tidak dibarengi pengajaran rasa syukur dan empati. Bukan tentang seseorang wajib balas budi atau apa tetapi sikap 'saling' terhadap sesama dan makhluk hidup lainnya 🌿. . . Buku ini rekomended. Ini terlihat seperti buku anak, tetapi alangkah baiknya jika dijadikan bacaan anak maka orangtua mendampingi. . . Rate: 3 ⭐⭐⭐ . #aksireviewbuku #nature #whpcolorstudy

| Мэтью Грин «Воспоминания моего воображаемого друга» | ⠀ Привет, меня зовут Будо. Это Макс. Макс - человек, который придумал меня. Мой друг. А я его друг, но только воображаемый. И я готов пойти ради Макса на все. ⠀ Невероятно трогательная книга, к которой мне почему-то сложно подобрать слова. Такой родной и близкой мне стала эта история о маленьком мальчике Максе Дилэйни, прячущемся внутри себя, непростом ребёнка, который хочет понимания, дружбы, личного пространства и того, чтобы все перестали мечтать увидеть его "нормальным", в особенности родители. ⠀ Стоит ли говорить, что эту книгу нужно прочитать многим родителям и учителям? Мэтью Грин невероятно тонко раскрывает хрупкий внутренний мир ребёнка, показывая, о чем мечтает малыш, как он потихоньку взрослеет, становясь храбрее и сильнее с каждым днём, что его интересует, как он относится к окружающему миру, что его беспокоит или восторгает. ⠀ И поделюсь с вами цитатами, которые меня зацепили: «Монстры — это жуткие твари, но те монстры, которые ходят и говорят по- человечески, еще хуже.» «Нет, не из-за тебя, — сказал я. — Они ссорятся, потому что они взрослые. Взрослые любят ссориться.» 4/5 📚 Кто читал? Какие впечатления? Это странно, но я эту книгу ни у кого не видела. 🙈 📷🖋 @emiremarque Читали?

Hey bookworms! Were you a fan of The Vegetarian by Han Kang? Do you like books that are clever and witty and sharp and tear apart social structures and relationship expectations like there's no tomorrow? Then you must pick up The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood! . I find it hard to believe that this book was written in 1965 before feminism in North America was even a *thing* and published in 1969, Atwood was (and is) so ahead of her time in her thinking! This book is wonderful. It's packed with symbolism and critique of the standards expected from women in the 60s, specifically young & unmarried women. The main character Marian finds herself in a perfectly fine relationship with her fiancé Peter, but there's just something she can't stomach about normal life as a couple... *I can't take credit for that pun, it's on the back of the book 😂* . The characters in The Edible Woman are all purposely insufferable, although I did quite like Marian, especially in the first part when the narrative was in the first-person. As her relationship progresses and her sense of identity loosens, the narrative shifts to an omniscient third-person narrator which I thought was a very clever technique! There's a third part too but I won't spoil that. . It made me laugh, it made me stop and think, it definitely made me think about the reaction it would have caused upon publication. I will say that the writing isn't as polished as later Atwood's but who am I (not a professional author) to judge?? And it didn't take away from my reading experience so... . #abreadsreviews - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

@ruqkishreads recommends. "The Sun Is Also A Star is the kind of book I will never get tired of re-reading. It revolves around two immigrants who meet in New York city and spend that entire day together, getting to know each other and falling in love, however one of them is being deported back to their country that very day. There is something very fresh and unique about the way Nicola Yoon writes her books, I really liked and enjoyed her first book Everything Everything but The Sun is Also A Star simply swept me away. There is just something so incredibly beautiful about the way she brings her characters to life. And despite the fact that Natasha and Daniel are not more than 17 year old, and that the story is mainly about how love at first sight can last a lifetime (which I normally disagree with) there is nothing childish or cliché about this book. The facts and the historical background in between seamlessly blending with the rest of the story is one my most favorite things about this book. I keep recommending this book to everyone irrespective of the genre they prefer, you simply have to read it to know why I love it so much." #BloggerTakeover

Вас не угнетает, что вы покупаете больше, чем читаете? ⚪ Что некоторые книжные покупки стоят совсем нетронутые? ⚪ Вы сели на книжную диету, но все равно хочется новеньких книжек? ⚪ У меня такая же ситуация. И вот я для себя решила так - планировать к прочтению три книги из предыдущих покупок (2016г. и по порядку с этого года). Так и просматриваю покупки свои и вроде бы как новые книги пролистала, осознала, что нетронутых книг много - жажда шопоголика чуть чуть утоляется 😄 А три - чтобы оставался простор для спонтанного выбора еще пары книг. ____________ Итак, на июнь месяц я взяла: 📕 Другая судьба (покупка июня 2016) - что было бы с миром, если бы Гитлер поступил в художественное училище (куда в реальности его не приняли) 📕 Шоколад (покупка января 2017) читаем вместе с @marina_books_blog 📕 Зулейха открывает глаза (покупка февраля 2017) - о вынужденном переселении татар в СССР. ⚪ Как вы справляетесь с книжной диетой? ⚪ А как формируете планы к прочтению? И вообще, практикуете? У меня в первый раз такое, попробую. Кто-нибудь хочет присоединиться? ⚪ ⚪ #мирдолжензнатьчтоячитаю #книги #книга #книгочей #книжныйчервь #литература #книгомания #книгоман #книгоманьяк #книголюб #люблючитать #чтение #читатель #чтопочитать #чточитаешь #ячитаю #книжныепокупки #книжнаяполка #книжныйблог #книжныйобзор #книжныйотзыв #моябиблиотека #книганашевсе #ялюблючитать #ниднябезкниги #bookstagram #books #китепbook

Ok, so at the time this picture was taken, I was currently reading Flame in the Mist but I actually finished it this afternoon. And, guys....don't hate me, but it wasn't THAT amazing! *runs and ducks from flying books* 🔥 It wasn't a BAD book. I didn't have any issues with the writing style, the world building was great! But, the characters were seriously lacking for me throughout most of the book. I think I really only enjoyed like the last 25% of the book. The other 75% just didn't really do much for me. One of the POVs, l almost wanted to skip through entirely. From what I understand there will be a sequel though, and I'm usually pretty forgiving on first books in a series. 🔥 Overall, because of the ending, I gave this book a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️, but I will definitely pick up the sequel. Again, the ending. I needs to know!😏 🔥 I decided to take a break from Fantasy for a bit so I'm currently reading Orphan Train as well as Buddy reading "Wonder" with my little fifth grader! (I'm still in shock that I have a fifth grader now). 💙 Have you read these?! No spoilers! But, id love to hear your thoughts! 🔥 . . . . . . . #flameinthemist #currentlyreading #bookmark #bookmarks #amreading
