I really enjoy books with Greek/Roman mythology in the story line. Are there any that you recommend? . Book 1 of the Lords of the Underworld series was on my TBR list since 2013 🙈 I shouldn't have waited so long to read it, I enjoyed the story and the modern take on Pandoras Box. . . . #genashowalter #genashowalterbooks #lordsoftheunderworld #thedarkestnight #pandorasbox #greekmythology #sexyreads #paranormalromance #romancebook #paranormalbooks #instabook #bookstagram #bookgram #booknerd #booklover #anotheronebitesthedust #finishedreading #readingchallenge #2018readingchallenge #readingchallenge2018 #maketimetoread #readingtime #timetoread #paranormalromancereaders #readinglife #januaryreads #bookworld #bookaddict #addictedtoreading #bookaholic

Book three of the #AirAwakensSeries! With that very cruel ending of Fire Falling, I'm so glad we got into the story quickly. Vhalla was a fierce determined protagonist through this story. (As always.) She traveled across enemy territory alone, sacrificed her voice and whatever freedom she had left for the man she loves, and proved herself more than capable of withstanding the force of the North and judgement and cruelty from the Emperor. Her name was stolen from her, but she took it back in stages and I'm just so proud of her! She had her moments of defeat, where her head hung low, and she didn't want to fight anymore, but she refused to give up in the end. She found strength, whether driven by her own will or fighting for Aldrik. Nonetheless she found it and stood with her chin held high. More of Aldrik's past was discovered and you found out some of the reasons why he is the way he is. He's very morally grey and never pretends that he's not. He has demons and is working on shutting them up, but it doesn't come easily. He also showed glimpses of what he'd be like as the future Emperor. It's going to be awesome when he finally takes the throne! 👑 Oh and he sasses and challenges a certain someone so much that there were times I was biting my nail because I was waiting for retaliation. (But it's still so great though.) I love Jax! He brings a sense of humor that was needed and it helps balance out the friction raging around. Elecia has definitely grown from Fire Falling and she's actually one of my favorites. I love her bluntless and how she carries herself. She doesn't apologize for who she is. And Baldair! Originally I didn't know how I felt about him, but he proved he was loyal and only looking out for what's best for Vhalla- and Aldrik. He's on my favorites list as well. I really liked this book! I saw negative reviews for it and was a little nervous going in, but it didn't disapppint. There was a lot of build-up for the battle against the North, but Elise spent time developing Vhalla and Aldrik's relationship and other characters. It wasn't as good as Fire Falling, but up there with Air Awakens. The ending though!! (😮😯🤤😢☹😭) Rating: 4.5/5

(I'm also currently reading THE LETTERS OF SYLVIA PLATH and I'm in year 1946 and these two books are *talking to each other*) +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ What man came up with the description "Sugar and spice and everything nice" when that is a biological and cultural impossibility? +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Anyway, these books are feral and gorgeous.

First Austen read for the year: Finished! Verdict: I love this book. The themes presented in the novel were more mature and less romantic compared to the other Jane Austen novels I noticed. Then I found out that it was because this novel was written twelve years after Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey she was 36. There’s for sure a lot of interesting characters, symbolisms and emphasis on society, values and change. This one is a good read! 💗 “We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.” Jane Austen, Mansfield Park 📿 📿 P.S. I’ll be reading Emma next! 😉 📿 #myshelfoffavourites #austen18 #books #read #classic #bookworms #bookstagram #bookphotography #finishedreading #book #bibliophile #bookish #chapters #booklover #fiction #igbooks #photography #feature #booksofinstagram #collection #goodreads #bookworm #fortheloveofreading

There is nothing more potent than the power to grasp for something just as you feel it slipping away from your grip. That it’s an impulse in all of us, to fight for the thing that we are losing, even if we’ve already lost. 🌌 #FinishedReading #FragmentsOfTheLost by #MeganMiranda #Death #Mystery #bookstagram #standalone #memories #heartbreak #friendship

I was under the impression that this would be a fast paced/page turner. Instead, it was actually a slow but mysterious book filled with secrets and of course, magic. Although I truly enjoyed the writing, at times it felt a little slow (just being honest). But, overall a magnificent book that made me live within a magical word. I have never liked the circus in real life, but in this one, I'd love to live in! . . . #finishedreading #thenightcircus #erinmorgenstern #review #finalthoughts #circus #magic #magician #bookstagram #bookreview #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #igreads

タイトルからはいっさい想像がつかなかったが、きづけば「被差別部落」にかんする本であった。 _ 昨年から、とある先生にお借りした『荊冠の神学』という、被差別部落解放とキリスト教を論じた本を読んでいる。 _ そのころから、社会から抑圧され、また見えなくされてきた「被差別」のひとびとのことを知りたくなり、意識的にまた無意識のうちに、かんれんする本と出会ってきた。 _ まさか、もっとも敬愛する松陰先生の本において、そのテーマと出会うことになるとは、思いもよらなかった。 _ さて _ 松陰先生を小説やドラマにしたとき、かならず登場するのが、この「高須久子」という女性である。 _ 松陰先生の「恋」をえがいた『獄に咲く花』という映画もあり、まさに松陰先生と高須久子の「恋」がとりあげられていた。 _ 彼女は、当時25歳だった松陰先生よりひとまわり上の女性で、山口の萩にある野山獄という牢屋にいれられていたひとだった。 _ 罪は、姦淫。 _ そのように言われてきたが、本書は、高須久子の入獄理由にかんして、まったくちがう説、いや資料にもとづいた事実を展開する。 _ それは、彼女が、被差別民を「平民同様」にとりあつかったこと、そのことが親族の不興を買い、獄にいれられてしまったという事実である。 _ そしてこの事実は、被差別部落のもんだいに触れたくない「平民」的な発想の歴史編纂者の暗黙の了解によって、隠されていた事実だったという。 _ 高須久子は、当時「人にあらず」と言われ差別されていた被差別民を、ふつうの人と同じようにせっし、心をかわした。 _ そのタブーをやぶった彼女は、親族から「姦淫」の濡れ衣をきせられ、牢屋にいれられてしまった。 _ その高須久子に、松陰先生は獄のなかでであい、心をかわしていたのである。 _ 松陰先生も、身分のへだてなく、役人のおぼっちゃん(高杉晋作)も、足軽の子(吉田稔麿)も、なんの差別もなくかかわった教育者であった。 _ その松陰先生が、当時の身分の「外」においやられていたひとたちをも差別しなかった高須久子と、出会っていたのである。 _ その事実を知ったうえで「吉田松陰像」をえがくと、いままでとはまた異なった松陰先生を、おもいえがくことができる。 _ 「人間解放」者としての吉田松陰を知った、この意味はまことに大きい。 _ しかし、天皇陛下をうやまいながら被差別民の解放をうたうという松陰先生の姿勢は、日本における「聖」の概念とまた社会構造をかんがえたときに、矛盾してしまうだろう。 _ その矛盾をかかえた松陰先生は、やはり人間であり、だれよりも人間らしい。 _ 松陰先生の魅力は、知るごとに増すばかりである😊 _ またなにより、高須久子の魅力が計り知れないことも、新しく知ることができた。 _ January17 Wednesday 2018 #finishedreading

. . . Good morning ☕️ from sunny Vienna! (Yes, the sun was still out there somewhere - just, hiding) . Love sunlit mornings! Even a regular day at work starts with a smile 😊 Talking about sunny and light, here is a book 📖 for anyone looking for a cozy little palate cleanser of 320 pages. . After her Evelyn Hugo book has surprised me (& deservedly ended up in my top 5 list of 2017) I opened Jenkins Reid‘s earlier novel: One True Loves with anticipation. . It was a very fluent read: easy language, not much challenge here, with one surprise element for plot - yet unfortunately, filled with dialogues that made me roll my eyes 🙄 (Men just don’t talk that way, ever). At times, I wondered if I was reading the script of a cheesy evening TV show on good old ABC. That being said, I sensed that Reid‘s conscious writing was there, also in her earlier days - it all, had yet to grow and blossom. . Evelyn Hugo was general fiction, rich in plot and character development. Had I read One True Loves independently, expecting actual: chick-lit I wouldn’t have ended up equally disappointed. I envy jessicaeli.reads and dizzyreads who both, have Evelyn yet to come - enjoy, ladies! A thank you also to les__livres__ for reading & discussing with us. . . 💬 Do you tend to read books by the same author in chronological order? Starting with the older ones first? . . #onetrueloves #taylorjenkinsread #unitedbookstagram #chicklit #palatecleanser #easyread #comfortable #biblioquestions #iread #books2018 #cilitalksbooks #finishedreading #lastread #booklover #bookworm #booktography #femaleauthors #femalewriters #bookreview #bookish #bookandfruits #readalong #bluebooks #readingtime #tuesdayreads #lightreading
