Day 24 #thereadersbooknook 'review your last book': I just finished A Whole New World by Liz Braswell which is the first book in the Disney Press Twisted Tales series. I would give this one 3.5 ⛥⛥⛥ The first part of the book is written exactly like the beginning of the movie- even some of the dialogue is exact. In this story however, Aladdin doesn't awaken the genie, Jafar does. The second half really picks up with Aladdin, Jasemin and friends teaming up to defeat Jafar and free Agrabah from his demonic rule (which includes an army of the dead 💀) In parts it was a bit too simplistic for my tastes but there was a lot of action and overall it was a quick, fun read! #bookstagram #instabook #booklover #bibliophile #nerdalert #bookaddict #bookworm #bookcollector #igreads #bookish #allthebooks #booknerdigans #booklove #readmorebooks #bookreview #disneypress #awholenewworld #lizbraswell #aladdin #atwistedtale #retellings #yafiction #yanovel #disneyretelling
My short review of @petesouza’s “OBAMA: An Intimate Portrait”... It does an exceptional job of covering all eight years of the #Obama Administration. @BarackObama is depicted in numerous roles - as a father and a husband; as comforter-in-chief and commander-in-chief. In some of the photos, you see the most consequential hours of #44’s presidency. If you enjoy presidential history (like me), then you’ll love this book. #souzabook #bookreview #photography #bookstagram

So much to do!! Let's get this done!
First book I’m picking up in like 2 weeks (all thanks to binge watching Skam 😩). Has anyone read this series? I hear good things! And the first 2 books are on sale right now for 62 CENTS!! • • • KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER... BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods-and her homicidal mother-have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever. Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm-until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone. _____________________ The Kingmaker Chronicles: A Promise of Fire (Book 1) Breath of Fire (Book 2) Heart on Fire (Book 3)
'Magic always leaves a mark' is the tag line for the book Keeper by @kimwritesbooks which is out in January. If you want a fast paced adventure with a paranormal focus, this is your book. I really liked the world Lainey (the MC) finds herself thrown into, the paranormal world building is fantastic and this is really where you see the writer's imagination come alive. There's a couple of real twists I didn't expect, and I do love a twisty book! I found myself skipping ahead in the really tense scenes, thinking aagghh, what's going to happen?? I would recommend giving it a read. I never though paranormal was my sort of thing, but now I'm really hoping there will be a sequel! #keeper #magicalwaysleavesamark #outin2018 #paranormal #thatcover @fluxbooks
A very informative book. It is very easy to read. You do not need a medical background to read this book. You could just read the chapters that pertain to your health concern. The book advocates an integrative approach to health. Integrative means using natural means and pharmaceutical prescription medication when needed. An approach I agree with. The book has the following chapters: antibiotics, statins (cholesterol lowering prescription medications), GERD (heartburn), sleep aids,steroids, psychiatric medication for adults and children/adolescents, medication for ADHD(attention deficit hyperactive disorder), medications for diabetes, over-reliance on medications :A Pharmacist's View, antihistamines,etc. Knowledge is power! I recommend you check with your doctor before making any dietary,supplement/herb or exercise changes. #health #bookreview #integrativehealth #medication #medications #improveyourhealth #babystepstohealth #doctors #nurses #herbalist #herbalists #cameliawholehealth #cameliahealth #iridology #iridologist #book #helpfulbook #helpfultips #holistichealth
#reseña FILO de Sergio Olguín Por @martinelli7016 📚📚 Relato cuyo eje narrativo principal lo constituyen dos triángulos amorosos, aunque uno de ellos con ganas de convertirse en un Felices los Cuatro, con una gran carga erótica y una extraordinaria virtud: al ubicar la acción a mediados de la década de los 90, una época sin redes sociales ni WhatsApp , Olguín recupera la cultura del levante con el sencillo elemento de la charla de café sobre libros y literatura. Aquí no hay lugar para selfies, stalkeos, clavar el visto o dar likes. Obviamente cuando Olguín escribió la novela no existían estos adelantos tecnológicos pero de todos modos resulta reconfortante leer a personajes que se vinculan por el clásico método de la conversación cara a cara. Con influencias de Osvaldo Soriano y Roberto Arlt y un entrañable recuerdo para David Viñas , con guiños para sus lectores y apuntes autobiográficos, Filo está compuesta por dos partes: en la primera, mucho mejor desarrollada, conocemos a la colorida y variada gama de protagonistas . Cada capítulo es como un cuento, la escritura fragmentada permite armar y construir la novela desde distintos episodios que conectan a todos los involucrados. Final de la reseña en el siguiente posteo 📙📘📗 @megustaleerarg_ #bookreview #libros📚 #literaturaargetina #sergioolguin #reseña #filo #bookgramers
My latest read. New paperback worthy, though it hasn't been released that way yet. Why *would* a movie star marry seven times? The answer might surprise you. Really well-written with solid buy-in to the story and relationships. Great escape with just a bit of salaciousness sprinkled here and there to help us understand the depth of connection.
@Regranned from @julezdiary - The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top. How many times do you think that people try to achieve their new goals before they give up? The average is less than one time. And the reason they give up is because of all the obstacles, difficulties, problems and roadblocks that immediately appear as soon as they decide to do something that they have never done before. The fact is that successful people fail far more often than unsuccessful people. Successful people try more things, fall down, pick themselves up, and try again- over and over again- before they finally win. Unsuccessful people try a few things, if they try at all and very soon quit and go back to what they were doing before. You should expect to fail and fall short many times before you achieve your goals. You should look upon failure and temporary defeat as a part of the price that you pay on your road to the success that you will inevitably achieve. Successful people are more concerned with what is right rather than who is right. Successful people are more concerned with the truth of the situation and what they can do to solve the problem, than they are with protecting their egos. Goals!(Brian Tracy) #BookReview #Blogger #bookreview - #regrann
«Ci saranno tante cose a cui dovrò abituarmi, e ce ne saranno altrettante di cui dovrò fare a meno. Il rumore dei tuoi passi, il tuo odore che svanisce sul cuscino, la luce del giorno in cui mi hai lasciato sola.» - Oggi mentre vagavo tra i negozi alla ricerca del nuovo PC, mi sono venuti in mente i protagonisti di questa storia che pagina dopo pagina mi hanno fatto amare la D'Urbano , la sua scrittura e i suoi personaggi. La conoscete? Avete letto qualcosa di suo? Un abbraccio 💕 #bookstagram #valentinadurbano

FILO Autor: SERGIO OLGUÍN Editorial ALFAGUARA 279 pgs. 📚📚📚 Por @martinelli7016 TEÓRICO, PRÁCTICO Y FINALSIN PROMOCIÓN El prolífico Sergio Olguín ha tenido un 2017 repleto de novedades. Luego de la publicación de 1982, su última novela por el momento, y de la emisión televisiva de la adaptación de La Fragilidad de los Cuerpos, primera parte de la trilogía policial protagonizada por la periodista Verónica Rosenthal, llega la reedición de FILO, que Olguín escribiera en en apenas dos meses, entre Agosto y Septiembre del 2002, poco tiempo después de la amargura provocada por Bielsa y sus muchachos en el Mundial de Corea y Japón. Escritor, periodista, futbolero y tuitero medianamente activo , Olguín ya daba muestras en Filo de toda su pericia narrativa. Con humor e irreverencia, logra hacer convivir la pasión por la escritura, los debates universitarios, los amores clandestinos, homenajes al género policial – tanto desde lo literario como desde lo cinematográfico- y su devoción por la vida en los barrios porteños. Hay que tener en cuenta que Filo es apenas su segunda novela.. Pero aquí ya aparecen varias marcas autorales que quien haya leído Oscura Monótona Sangre ( que le valiera a Olguín el Premio Tusquets) va a reconocer fácilmente. Filo debe su nombre, obviamente, a la sede de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras ubicada en la calle Puán. Pero también tiene que ver con sus personajes que viven al filo, al límite. También con acepciones más cercanas al lunfardo, vinculadas con la delincuencia, la marginalidad y la estafa. Y sin olvidar la acepción amorosa. Tal como decían las abuelas: la nena tiene un noviecito, un festejante, una simpatía, un filo.

I just realized I hadn’t posted yet today. 🙈 I’ve been busy all morning but I actually have a super chill afternoon/night so I’m hoping to finish a good chunk of The Eye of The World. I just started the audiobook of Ready Player One and I’m super intrigued. 🎮 Has anyone got any amazing bookish deals today??? Other than my big @bookoutlet purchase yesterday I’ve only placed one other order with Colourpop for some new lipsticks and a highlighter. 💋 ⛈ @onceuponabookcase announced their Black Friday sale!!! You can get 20% off their website. I loveeee the phonecases I’ve gotten in their past boxes. I have the Luke’s Diner one from the November box on my phone right now. 🤗 This Phantom of the Opera one was from their October box. If you want to see more phone cases in this styler check out @chicklitdesigns, they design all the phone cases included in the boxes. 😄 ⛈ Also two of my other faves announced their sales too! @dreamyandco is having 20% off their Etsy, no code needed, and @novelheartbeatcreations is having 25% off with the code BLACKFRIDAY17. 🎉🎉🎉 ⛈ • • • • • • • • • • #book #reader #reading #bookstagram #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #yareads #yareader #youngadult #yabooks #epicreads #shelfie #currentlyreading #currentread #goodreads #bibliophile #igbooks #igreader #bookreview #bookworm #ilovebooks #ilovereading #readersofinstagram #readersofig #bookstagramfeatures #bookish #tbr #onceuponabookcase #phantomoftheopera
"Sekretna księga Świętego Mikołaja" Angelika Stubner 🎅. Pewnego razu Święty Mikołaj tak się zmęczył podczas swojej podróży, że zasnął, a wtedy z jego kolan zsunęła się sekretna księga, w której znajdowały się przeróżne życzenia dzieci. Księga trafiła do krainy zamieszkanej przez baaaardzo dużą rodzinę pingwinów 🐧. Zachwycone rysunkami z księgi zaczęły budować z lodu nieznane, cudowne figury. A chcąc znaleźć się bliżej rozwiązania zagadki, wspięły się na szczyt góry, bo przecież właśnie z nieba spadła księga. Co było dalej i czy Święty Mikołaj odzyskał swoją własność, przeczytajcie sami, bo to naprawdę ciepła, sympatyczna historyjka 😍. Polecam szczególnie dla dzieci w wieku 2-4 lat, tym bardziej, że ma nietypowy dodatek - tytułową, sekretną księgę, przewieszoną przez okładkę na czerwonej wstążeczce. Właśnie ta mała książeczka totalnie urzekła Huberta, gdy w ubiegłym roku ją kupiliśmy. Miał 3 latka i w tamtym momencie naprawdę wierzył, że trzyma w ręku własność Świętego Mikołaja. Możecie sobie wyobrazić jaki był podekscytowany 😀. Książka ma twardą okładkę, niewiele tekstu i całkiem fajne ilustracje. I chociaż nie jest to nowość, widziałam ją dzisiaj na allegro za 9 zł (nową, do wyczerpania przedmiotów). #sekretnaksiegaswietegomikolaja #angelikastubner #dasgeheimebuchvomweihnachtsmann #wydawnictwozielonasowa @wydawnictwo_zielona_sowa #childrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #booklover #bestbooks #czytamdziecku #dzieckoczyta #ksiazkidladzieci #bedtimestory #books #bookstagram #picturebook #booksforkids #kidlit #bookish #bookshelf #booklove #ilovebooks #bookobsessed #favoritechildrensbook #favoritestories #boybooks #bookreview #hubisiowabiblioteczka #hubisiowo #christmasbooks
Channeling my inner @savor_and_read again 😮 . I’m getting back into reading. I was too much Gary Vaynerchuking (aka less consuming and more DOING) but I tell you, reading books are like the mentors I never had. . This book is great. Such a great way to understand yourself and have an appreciation for introverts. . TAP the ❤️ if you are an introvert or appreciate introverts!
