So today I ended up reading this book. Got this book one day by chance when my father was cleaning my sister's shelf. This book was full of life lessons. I really enjoyed reading this and I bet u If u read novels than u must have a look on this one and after reading it u will thank me for that.
Do your children ask you to read the same books again and again and again? Here’s why. Kids learn through repetition, so it's not surprising that they tend to ask for the same books over and over — this is how their brains absorb the stories and language patterns within. ... It's likely that hearing the phrasing and structure of a story many times over helps children grasp and hold on to new vocabulary. #booksfromdayone
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/5 stars
I just finished this book yesterday, and am SO grateful to everyone on bookstagram who told me to read this. This book was incredible. It is about a writer, Monique, who is chosen by the elusive and aging film star Evelyn Hugo to write her biography. Monique doesn't know she's been chosen, but as Evelyn's life story unfolds the reader learns what it is that binds these two together. This is one of those stories that I can't tell you much about without ruining it, so instead I will tell you what makes this book shine:
The writing in this book is stellar. It is emotional, and even raw at times. This book examines identity (and its sacrifice). It talks about race, class, abuse, sexuality, sexism, and misogyny. This book's characters are beautiful, flawed, lovable (and hateable) people who you get attached to and whose welfare you cheer for. I love that this book tugged at my heartstrings and made me laugh AND cry. I love that it surprised me. I love that when I set it down last night I was smiling.
If you're looking for a book that takes place in a previous era but that speaks truths that we still need to hear today about hope, love, and care for one another, I commend this story to you. I hope it brings you the pain and joy that it is intended to. 💚
Yesterday we went to Stratford-upon-Avon to shop. The hubby @kezwilliams12 and I love to go to charity shops.
If you like books, go to charity shops FIRST. I mean, there are times that I pay full price for a book because I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT.
I have even been known to stand in the queue at Midnight for a brand new release. We went to a couple of discount bookshops too.
The book on the bottom "Elizabeth's Rival" I bought NEW but 1/3 of the retail price because it was in the discount shop. Same as Lorna Byrne and Edward IV.
The other two at the top of the photo, "Henry" by David Starkey (One of my FAVOURITE Monarchy historians) and "Victoria"... They both look like yhey haven't been read. They look BRAND NEW.
I can't really tell you what my favourite genre is. Because I love biographies and history. But also fiction/fantasy.
I just in the spring had so many books that I was able to sell most of them and bought our brand new wash machine and dryer with the money I received from the sales.
Now, my library is growing again. I already have almost 50 books again. I will probably not be able to get through them even by the end of next year. But I will have them when I am ready. 😀
Are any of you avid readers and if so, what is your fave genre? Leave a comment and let me know. Also let me know what you are reading and if you have any suggestions for me for the genres I am interested in. (I still am interested in art history too and artists of today of course). Thanks for dropping by! 😀
