The Corset by Laura Purcell. Dorothea is the 25 year old daughter of an upper middle class gentleman whose wife died some years previous. Dorothea's father is anxious to marry her off, however, Dorothea is a feisty and independent young woman with a mind of her own & pushes against the social confines of polite Victorian society. Before her death, Dorothea's mother converted to Catholicism & instilled in Dorothea a penchant for charitable good deeds. Dorothea, with a keen interest in phrenology & how the shape of people's skulls are in direct correlation to their personalities and actions, goes to the local women's prison for further research.There she encounters Ruth. Ruth is a sixteen year old girl incarcerated for the murder of her mistress. Ruth's story is heartbreaking. The daughter of a seamstress & an alcoholic father, she learns to sew from her mother. Tragedy ensues & an angry and grief-stricken Ruth believes that she conveys all her feelings into her stitches which are then encountered by the ultimate wearer of the garment. She is apprenticed to the Metyards, mother and daughter. Ruth is worked night and day & herself and the other girls are subjected to appalling acts of cruelty at the hands of the Metyards and the Captain, until one day they go too far... As she tells Dorothea her life story from her cell, Ruth, feisty and spirited, recalls all that led to her incarceration. She firmly believes she can stitch her feelings including hatred and bitterness, sadness and grief, into the commissioned garments and that as a result, she is responsible for many deaths. Is it a supernatural possibility or does Ruth teeter on the edge of madness? I thought this book was fantastic and even better than The Silent Companions.The different voices of Dorothea and Ruth, both of whom are extremely likeable characters, are very different yet each voice resonates in their own story. The juxtaposition of life in the upper classes versus life at the very bottom is so well described so as to make you imagine you are actually there. A fantastic Dickensian style tale about poverty, child labour, abuse of power, betrayal, murder & revenge, all with a supernatural twist. 5*++

I have loved this series since I was 14, it’s a hilarious fantasy full of magic and fighting and it’s my second favourite series (after Harry Potter) and I think it’s seriously underrated! But it was only supposed to be a 9 book series so when Derek Landy announced Book X I was so excited!! I went to the book tour and got to meet him and have this book personally signed, I was definitely the oldest person there though, even though this possibly is ya (you follow the main character from 12 to 21 I think)!

'- Nie bierz tego tak do siebie. Jesteśmy tylko ludźmi, wbrew pozorom nie jesteśmy tacy ważni. To, co sobie wmawiamy, co wmawiają nam politycy czy celebryci, nie jest prawdą. Żyjemy w świecie iluzji i uważamy, że każdy z nas ma znaczenie, że wszystko, co robimy, jest częścią większego projektu. Nie znam bardziej zakłamanego gatunku na ziemi. A wiesz jakie jest największe kłamstwo, a zarazem moje ulubione? To, że każdy z nas ma siły, by zmienić świat. Jesteśmy zbędni, wszyscy...' - fragment powieści 'The Writer'. 😀🔥📖 Ciąg dalszy znajdziemy w ➡️📖😀

In mezzo alle colline toscane, avvolta dai suoni della natura, con il frinire continuato di grilli e cicale. Ispirazioni! •

"You must be as strong as this prison, as strong as the stone and ocean that hems you in. You are brick and barbed wire. You are iron."
Grace & Fury
.
.

Grace & Fury by Tracey Banghart was an enjoyable read- it had oppression and revolution, plots and intrigue set to an Italian-esque background. It was mostly about the love between sisters and the lengths we'd go to to protect those we love. It gets 4🌟 from me!
.
.
.
I can't really think of a reason not to give it 5🌟, apart from the fact that it just didn't 'wow' me. .

Tag 23: Buch-Accessoires
Hallo!🌷
Als Buch-Accessoires kann man so einiges benutzen. Jeder hat eine eigene Definition davon, was man als Accessoire benutzen kann und für mich sind es eindeutig Funkos, Blumen und Schmuck - wie man überdeutlich auf meinen Bildern erkennen kann. 😁 Aber tatsächlich besitze ich auch eine Kerze, wobei ich meinen Besitz an Kerzen unbedingt vervielfachen möchte. 😍
.
Was sind eure liebsten Accessoires für Bilder oder als Deko zum Thema Buch?📚

Habt nich einen schönen Tag!🌷
Liebe Grüße,
Luisa 💕

The Book Fairies are so so excited to have launched their first ever mini-shop in the UK today! It's nestled inside an independent bookshop and this one is aimed at children 💚

We hope they love opening the chest and seeing photos of other #minibookfairies around the world! We also hope that this is the first of many!

Please forgive the slightly crap photo and the shaky video... we were focused more on the excitement of it all 😁

La Bottega

0   5  

This is a tale that makes you appreciate life!.... I vote *OVE* as 'character-of-the-year'! The author has created the most memorable character to be found in a novel --in years. *OVE*, is an unassuming man. He likes routines, and rules. He's an honest man. Doesn't smile and give compliments -- but he's a man of integrity. 
To watch OVE grow - heal the loss of his wife -and allow his neighbors to love him (and love them back) -- is is a treasure.
This book has great humor & great heart! 📖 #books #book #read #reading #lovebooks # #booklove #booklover #instagood #booklovers #bookstagram #library #igreads #epicreads #bookish #instabook #igreads #bookishescape #bookshelf #bookaddict #literature #lovebooks #bookoftheday #igbooks #amancalledove #lecture #livres #lecturedumoment #livreaddict #fredrikbackman #bookmark #dzreaders #livreaddict
