I have seldom ventured into the world of comic books and graphic novels and was always into fiction heaving with words, sentences and paragraphs. However, recently I stumbled upon some fantastic graphic novels and despite my love for the dense, 400-500 page literary strings of words, I found myself thoroughly enjoying these books.⁣ ⁣ Hyperbole and a Half is Allie Brosh's humorous, honest, and delightful narration of her life through artwork. This book is a compilation of several stories Brosh has told on her blog of the same name where she covers a lot of topics ranging from childhood experiences to her hilarious encounters with her dogs to self-identity and depression. The graphics by themselves are deliberately crude yet vivid in portraying the emotions, and the narrative often reaches some startling profundity. You will tear through the book in no time and are left wanting for more because it’s amusing and witty as hell.⁣ ⁣ The book at times feels fragmented as you would find yourself reading intense chapters on Brosh’s depression and then suddenly you are learning about her mother inadvertently getting them lost in the woods. From reading a story about a goose getting trapped in her house you are suddenly learning about the illogical processes of her thoughts and feelings. However, there is something inexpressible about this book, especially the chapters on identity and depression, that makes you feel less alone. There is a lot of self-revealing there but there is no hint of any self-pity. She brings the same waggishness in these chapters as she does in the chapters about her dogs.⁣ ⁣ Allie Brosh’s stories accomplish to find amusement in the ordinary, the silly, and the catastrophic instances of life. A super quick read which strikes the perfect balance between some great laughs and tenderness, exemplified with sidesplitting drawings. . . . . #bookstagram #bookrecommendations #bookreview #graphicnovels #hyperboleandahalf #depressionisreal #unitedbookstagram #mybookshelf #ebook #goodreads

#americanroyals #novel Description: What if America had a royal family? When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart. . . . #readersofinstagram #livros #bookstore #igreads #bookblogger #writer #novel #libro #bookclub #writing #bookcommunity #bookreview #fiction #goodreads #writersofinstagram #romance #leggere #literatura #bookobsessed #fantasy #a #instagood #ilovebooks #instagram #photography #readingtime #kitap #livrestagram

#Blacklivesmatter • • Ciao lettori come state?😊 Diversamente dalle solite volte in cui posto, dove generalmente pubblico contenuti inerenti esclusivamente ai libri che leggo, questa volta vorrei anch'io unirmi a chi lotta, come può, una battaglia per cercare di aprire gli occhi e abbattere i blocchi mentali alle persone come quel poliziotto che ha commesso qualcosa che va oltre l'ingiustizia. Vorrei che le persone si rendano conto che questo argomento non è un argomento da prendere alla leggera o ritenerla una cosa normale. Non c'è cosa peggiore che rimanere nell'ignoranza oppure farsi influenzare da pareri negativi e insensati riguardo determinati argomenti. Oltre a condividere la mia passione per la lettura e trovare una community con cui parlarne, la mia pagina è fatta anche per consigliare libri. Non sarò un esperto che se ne intende al 100% e nonstante leggo per lo più libri di intrattenimento e divertimento, mi piace anche leggere libri che contengono temi importanti attuali. Perciò voglio consigliarvi anch'io un libro, che secondo me si vede poco su instagram: The hate u give di Angie Thomas. L’odio con cui crescete i bambini fotte tutti quanti abbreviato con l’acronimo t.h.u.g. l.i.f.e. T.H.U.G. è anche il movimento creato da Tupac Shakur, attivista e rapper assassinato nel 1996 da una gang rivale. Attraverso l'esperienza di Starr, una ragazza afroamericana di 16 la quale assiste all'ingiusta uccisione del suo amico Kahlil da parte di un poliziotto, Angie Thomas ci racconta una storia forte ma vera. Come il razzismo sia un seme che cresce inarrestabile, alimentato come fosse un fuoco, piantando solidi radici nella mente della gente. In aggiunta ci sono altri temi che l'autrice tratta, creando una storia più completa e originale. L'autrice lancia un messaggio di pace ma anche una feroce critica della società americana. Essendo un libro rivolto ad una fascia di età giovane e anche romanzata giustamente, ma credo sia perfetto da leggere e non farebbe male a nessuno, soprattutto per farsi un'idea sull'argomento in questione (c'è anche il film). 👇👇👇

En zo is het alweer Juni! De maand mei was niet zo een goede leesmaand 🙊 ik las 2 boeken en was niet zooo actief op Bookstagram. Maar het belangrijkste: ik heb enorm van die 2 boeken genoten en heb me er bij neergelegd dat het oké is als ik eens een weekje Instagram niet open heb. 🌼 Deze maand hoop ik deze 4 boeken te lezen, maar he: als dat niet lukt is dat ook helemaal oké. 😉

No one too small to make a difference Genre: Non Fiction Author: Greta Thunberg I am not against environmentalism. I don't have any strong feelings about @gretathunberg . But this book is un-readable. Uni-dimensional, repetitive, poorly edited. The message comes with good intentions but is poorly delivered. Yes, sometimes you need to hammer down the point to get it across, but as a reader who spent hard earned $s to buy this, I was hoping for some new content, insights or stories. Unfortunately none of that was delivered. My honest advice: Support her cause. It's wonderful to see a young woman lead such an important movement. But as for this book save your dollars and the 90 minutes you would have spent on this book. Listen to one of her speeches instead. I would recommend the one she delivered at the UN Climate Change Conference . . . #nofilterreviews #coversandspines #coversandspinesreview #nooneistoosmalltomakeadifference #gretathunberg #climatechange #nonfiction #lockdown #quarantine #goodreads #bibliophile #bookish #bookblog #bookbinge #igbookishfriends #bookstagram #instagood #instadaily #instabooks

Men We Reaped 🖤 I Just finished this and I’m still reeling from what an utterly heartbreaking read this was. Ward tells the story of her life growing up in the small town of DeLisle, Mississippi, and particularly the tragic story of how she lost five men who were close to her, including her beloved brother, in the space of just a few years through accidents, murder, drugs and suicide. This is a eye-opening, frustrating, gutting account of how racism and poverty, institutionalised and cemented over generations, culminates in a life spent constantly on the brink of death - particularly for young black men in the American south. I thoroughly recommend this memoir and after experiencing her haunting and beautiful writing, will definitely be reading more of Ward’s books isA. ⭐️ 5 / 5 stars ⭐️ #booksofig #bookstagram #booksta #books #bookstack #bookstagrammer #books #booksofinstagram #junetbr #antiracistbooklist #girlwomanother #thingsfallapart #smallisland #anamericanmarriage #purplehibiscus #ukbookstagram #bookreview #bookaesthetics #blacklivesmatterbooks #bookish #reader #booklover #blackstoriesmatter #menwereaped #jesmynward #goodreads

Probabilmente non è un caso se la #gravidanza ha una durata di #novemesi un tempo utile e necessario per rivolgersi a professionisti in grado di accompagnarla con competenza ed empatia, per frequentare percorsi di preparazione al parto, per #prendersicura del proprio #corpo e per scegliere con serenità la modalità di assistenza e il luogo per partorire. . E forse perché, come diceva #MichelOdent noto #ostetrico francese, pioniere della #nascitanaturale – Non riusciremo a #cambiare il mondo senza cambiare il modo di #venirealmondo – .

BOOKS ABOUT SMART, CONFIDENT AND COURAGEOUS GIRLS __ Ayobami and the Names of the Animals is a picture book that merges fantasy and reality in telling a story about Ayobami and her dreams of going to school to learn to read and write. __ I read this book to my boys and similar to what we are experiencing now, in this story, school was closed but this time because of the war. Ayobami and her friends were excited to return to school after the war. There were scenes of the children rejoicing because they could finally go back to school. My children and I talked a bit about school, my 4 year old wanted to know what war meant so I explained. My 8 year old had a pretty good idea. __ On her way to school, Ayobami came across several wild animals and in exchange for her freedom, Ayobami agreed to write the names of each one of these animals on her way back from school. The rest of the story captures what happened at school and on her way back home. __ This African themed story is great for promoting literacy, highlighting the importance of learning to read, write and spell. The illustrations are sprinkled with pictures of alphabets, sort of emphasizing what the book is about. ***We read the ebook. ***

I read this book last week and it was SO GOOD! 💙 I think more (white) people really need to read it! I’ve seen reviews saying that it’s very rudimentary, and I could definitely see why people say that. That being said, this is a great book to start with if you’re still new to educating yourself why Black Lives Matter. 💕 I can’t recommend this book enough! It was so great and is so important! • • QOTD: What book have you recently added to your TBR? • • #thebookieclub #writingcommunity #amwriting #writersofinstagram #booktag #bookclub #bookclubofinstagram #books #bookaholic #bookstagram #themagicofbookstagram #bookgram #creativebookstagram #mustread #booklover #goodreads #youngadultfiction #MGfiction #YAfiction #readingisfun #WhatImReading #readersofinstagram #SimplyBBooks
