happy friday, friends! Reading time is precious so I heeded everyone's advice on yesterday's post and abandoned The High Season. I have a few books I'm debating on, so we'll see what I pick up next. ⠀

I've partnered with @danielwellington to let you track your reading time in style. Use the code MICHELLEREADS to get 15% off a watch of your choice. If you love the cuff too, you can purchase one to match your watch for 50% off as well. I'm a big rose gold fan, so I was so excited to see that they offered that color option 🤗⠀

How do you track your reading time (if you do at all?)⠀

Release Day Blitz for The Charm Of You by Jennifer Probst 💗 .
.
Q.O.T.D - What is your favourite Jennifer Probst book? Mine would have to be my first JP book Searching for Someday, I still love and reread Slate and Kate 😍 .
.
It Takes Three Simple Steps To Make a Guy Fall in Love with you…
Determination.
Seduction.
Charm.
Let the game begin... Presley Cabot has come a long way from the overweight, awkward college student who fell hard for the gorgeous track star, Nolan Banks, only to be humiliated after their one night together. Now, she’s one of the billionaire badass owners of LWW Enterprises and has everything she’d ever wanted in life, leaving her past behind.
But when Nolan comes back into town, and doesn’t even recognize the girl he once destroyed, she decides to invoke her own personal revenge. The plan is simple—make him fall hard for her, then dump him. She transforms herself into his perfect woman using three simple steps to spin her web.
But she never planned on getting caught up in old feelings…and new promises…

Nolan Banks leaves Wall Street behind to open up a brewery in his small college town. Finally ready to carve out his life away from the dreams of his family, he never expected to find an immediate attraction to the sexy corporate mogul who challenges him at every step. He falls hard and fast, determined to show her they’re meant for each other, until the truth of their shared past shatters their fragile foundation. But Nolan is playing for higher stakes, and he’s not about to let Presley walk away without a fight. Can he convince her his feelings have nothing to do with the game rules, and everything to do with the woman she is? .

"Don't wait for someone to make up their mind about you
waiting for someone who doesn't keep you waiting
wait for someone who wouldn't even think twice
when given the choice to be with someone like you" {waiting}
by Rania Naim
I really love this poem and the book. The poem fits perfectly to my current situation...I am waiting...for love, the right job and for so many other things in general. But it is not good, only to wait till something is happening. Sometimes you have to take a risk and see what will happens next. And sometimes, it's good to move on. Because you know, it won't get better...someone or something will never change. So keep that in mind, sometimes it is good to wait and sometimes it is good to move on.

Have a wonderful day!

"Tell me that and we’ll go. Right now. Save ourselves and leave this place to burn. Tell me that’s how you want your story to go and we’ll write it straight across the sand." - Alwyn Hamilton .

•hello!
I've recently read Rebel of the Sands by @alwynhamilton and I loved it. It's one of the best book I've read this year. Why did I wait so long to read it, honestly?

📚B A L D W I N 📚
James Baldwin est un grand nom de la littérature afro-américaine. Il était très impliqué dans la lutte pour les droits civiques aux États-Unis.
Mais James Baldwin était aussi homosexuel...
Connu et reconnu, il a décidé de mettre de côté ses vieux combats pour s'attaquer à la cause homosexuelle. Dans "la chambre de Giovanni", il nous livre une part de lui... Celle de l'homosexuel refoulé bravant les interdits de son temps...
Je vous livre mon avis sur le blog (Lien dans ma Bio).🤗
Avez-vous déjà lu du Baldwin ? 🤔

I hate driving far but I’m willing to hike to a beach that’s secluded. If it’s big enough to fit our beach blanket then I will happily count that as a success. We can flop down after taking the dog for a swim and read a chapter or two while we soak up the sun. I’ll get irrationally excited about the fact that there is wild mint growing all around us and I’ll pick some to use as a bookmark.

I vowed to not buy any new books until I read more from my tbr shelf, but when I saw #Americanah by #ChimandaNgoziAdichie for a reduced price I couldn't resist 🙈
In other news, I just finished "I know why the caged bird sings" by Maya Angelou and wow, what a book. What a remarkable woman she was and the writing is so beautiful, I'm planning on buying more of her books 💕 🏵

"I was beginning to lose track of what 'society' actually was. I had a feeling it was all an illusion."

Convenience Store Woman is a dark and subversive look into conformity and societal expectations. It challenges the reader to think about what they perceive to be socially normal and acceptable, which ultimately makes this a rather uncomfortable read.

The writing style is very brisk and to the point, making it a quick read. However, I felt that this made the story feel somewhat incomplete. I would have much preferred to have had a deeper insight into the minds of the different characters, as I found it very hard to connect with any of them and to understand their motivations.

Convenience Store Woman is unlike anything that I’ve read before. I certainly didn’t love it, and do feel that maybe some of its charm has been lost in translation, but I did appreciate the social commentary and the quick glimpse into the main character’s rather unusual world.

⭐️: 3/5

Have you read Convenience Store Woman? I’d love to know what you thought of it if you have!

A very fitting #foodFriday 🍰

I asked my sister to bring the Toblerone cake from my favorite bakery all the way from Lahore. The frosting actually melted a bit (another reason to dislike summer 😑), but still tastes heavenly which is really what matters 😋

While in St. Louis, I was lucky to meet one of my most active FB readers face-to-face. Brent Warren even got an early copy of I Am Number 13 for his upcoming birthday. And we both had peanut butter cup cheesecake.

Thanks, Brent, for making time to meet me!

Erst jetzt dazu gekommen Klüssendorfs dritten Roman [Werbung, selbstgekauft] zur Protagonistin April zu lesen (longlist Buchpreis 2018). Die mit schwerer Kindheit belastete Hauptfigur lernt den älteren Chirurgen Ludwig kennen. Beide lieben es, Verrücktheiten im Alltag zu veranstalten. Ludwig verliebt sich schließlich in April, sie heiraten und bekommen einen gemeinsamen Sohn. Der von Anbeginn dominant auftretende Ludwig entwickelt sich Verlauf des Romans von April weg, nimmt manchmal sogar dämonische Züge an. Die Ehe zerbricht, ein erbitterter Scheidungsfeldzug gegen April ist die Folge und sie sieht sich wiederum mit dem Elend eines ohnehin schwierig zu meisternden Lebens konfrontiert. Ein tiefgründiger Roman, der vor allem durch seine schnörkellose Sprache besticht. Kein leichter Stoff, aber dennoch ein lesenswertes Werk, finde ich😊. #becauseofreading #booknerd #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #igreads #bookish #bookphotography #bookmark #alwaysreading

Ganz zufällig habe ich nacheinander zwei neue Bücher derselben Verlagsgruppe gelesen, die aber unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. "Die Wahrheit über Dinge, die einfach passieren" war genau mein Buch. Die Geschichte hat mich sehr berührt und durch ihre Klugheit beeindruckt. Den Inhalt von "Die Hochhausspringerin" muss ich jetzt erst mal sacken lassen. Das Buch war anders, als jede Dystopie, die ich bisher gelesen habe, erschreckend und am Ende hart. Ich kann nur hoffen, dass es auf dieser Welt niemals so weit kommt. Zwei großartige Bücher!

Do you prefer I answer the QA in a post like this, or with video on my story? The videos would be of me, and I’m a bit hesitant bit if you prefer it, I’ll do it! Makes it more personal right?
.
I have today off work and if you’ve been following me for a while, you know today is reserved for taking photos. I’m not at all happy with the batch I took last week, which means I have to take double the amount of pictures today... Sometimes I don’t realize the photos are crap until I start the editing process and NOTHING I do with the edits work out well. I used a different lens last photoshoot and it shows. Back to my beloved 50mm f/1.4 for me 😂

Finally, a new theme! I'm going back to basics with this one. Some wooden flooring, less clutter, a cup of something hot and yummy. It feels nice.
.
.
This was a recommended reference for translations during my module on ancient poetry and song, and it actually ended up helping with my exam revision. It's nice to have everything condensed to what you need during exam season, instead of having twelve separate books for each poet. I'm also having flashbacks of May, where my housemate and I took some pillows outside and attempted to revise in the sun a few times. Most of the time we just ended up watching Buzzfeed Unsolved and drinking Pimms, but when I finally got down to it, this was a decent volume of translations to work with. It has some nicely summed up introductions too, that hit you with the basic facts and correlations. I'd definitely recommend it to someone who's just getting into ancient poetry. It feels really nice in the hand as well? You know what I mean? I don't know, it just does.
.
.
Anyway, it's so nice being back here. I know I've said that in all of my posts since yesterday, but I'm feeling really excited again and it's had a positive effect on my mood in general too, so yay! ⚡️

I got bookmail today! The lovely @frost.kay.author was kind enough to send me the first three books in her series The Aermian Feuds 😍 Has anyone read this series? I've heard great things and can't wait to start 🤗 I'm more than halfway through City of Heavenly Fire, and once I've finished the TMI series I'm going to dive into Rebel's Blade 🗡

QOTD: What are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it?

AOTD: CoHF - so far, yes!

• It’s not easy bein’ green / having to spend each day / the colour of the leaves •
Day 17 of #macchiatosineden: ‘The Green Mile’, green books 📗
.
The book on the left is ‘The Narrow Road to the Deep North’ (奥の細道) by Matsuo Bashō, a Japanese poet from the Edo period.
Written in the guise of a travel journal, this collection of haibun [a combination of prose and haiku] is in fact based on a journey Bashō embarked on to obtain new energy and inspiration for his art.
.
The book on the right is the Italian version of ‘Memoria de mis putas tristes’ by Gabriel García Márquez.
The plot itself might seem a bit sordid, but the execution is poetic and melancholic, and it shows that everyone could find love, regardless of age or circumstances.
.
A part from the colour green being part of their covers, there seems to be no connection between these two books. Right?
Well, what do you know: for his novella, Marquez was actually inspired by a Japanese book, ‘House of the Sleeping Beauties’ by Yasunari Kawabata.
.
Another funky element – Bashō embarked on his journey on 1689 and Kawabata won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968 (same numbers, different order… remember I have a weird fascination for this stuff 📟)
