Finnished my reading.
Love the history of the Tudor. A story full of intrigue and conspiracy. An excellent description of the glittering castle on the one side and the smell of death on the other. Such was life at the Tudor castle.

I managed to read the book to the end. The book is full of action until the very end, but still I was not too impressed by the story itself.

#croatianedition

Now it is time for book 3.

quote
AyaOfSiwa
Glass Sword | Victoria Aveyard

"Lanac je pričvršćen za moj ovratnik. Povodac. Ja sam pas."

"The chain is attached to my collar. Leash. I'm a dog."

#croatianedition

Finished the book 2. It took me so long to read it. But I didn't give up.
Now it is time to dig in the book 3.

quote
AyaOfSiwa
Glass Sword | Victoria Aveyard

"Nitko se ne rađa zloban, baš kao što nitko ne rađa samoga sebe."

"No one is born evil, just as no one is born himself."

#croatianedition

I am almost done with book 2, finally.

quote
AyaOfSiwa
Glass Sword | Victoria Aveyard

"Crvena krv se tako teško čisti."

"Red blood is so hard to clean."

I'm so slow in reading this book.
I think I have been reading it for months and no way to finish it. I'm so slow. But I do not give up.

AyaOfSiwa
Glass Sword | Victoria Aveyard

Ako sam ja mač, tad sam mač od stakla - i bojim se da se već polako razbijam.

If I'm a sword, then I'm a sword of glass - and I'm afraid I'm slowly breaking.

AyaOfSiwa
Glass Sword | Victoria Aveyard

You can't forget some losses."

"Novac ljude čini očajnima. Trgovci ga žele dobiti, kupci zadržati - i sve ih zasljepljuje."

Finally read the first book. I liked that book, but I was expecting a bit more of the story. The story is a little loose, it simply requires more, more action. Not actions but more detailed stories. Even though I liked one phrase in it. It says: "Anyone can betray anyone".

This novel hits right where it hurts.

quote
AyaOfSiwa
Lullaby | Lela Slimani

"Uz djecu se osjećamo sami. Njih ne zanima od čega se sastoji naš svijet. Slute da je surov, mračan, ali ne žele znati ništa o tome."

"We are feeling alone with the kids. They don't care what our world is about. They suspect it's cruel, dark, but they don't want to know anything about it."

#croatianedition

quote
AyaOfSiwa
Lullaby | Lela Slimani

"At about 4pm, the days without commitments seem endless. In the middle of the afternoon we become aware that we have wasted time, we start to worry about approaching the evening. At that time of day, one is ashamed of not serving anything."

I could read this book unceasingly.
Something ruffled in me, ghosts of the past are awaken..
Excellent book.

What marriage makes to the young, immature women (wife) who are still nothing but girls?
Lila is so mean, still, but why?
What makes it so, why is she that like?

I read the book surprisingly fast. This book has drawn me into it's story.
I had a friend like Lila, but I quickly discovered who she really was and forever told her goodbye.

I started reading this stunning book. I like it very much. I can not drop it out of my hand. I have a feeling like I'm in the book, side by side, with Lila. I'm looking for her approval for everyone.
And she is such a mean girl.

I have to leave this book for a while. I can not read it anymore. It's too soft for me. I will continue on another occasion. I need a break. I need something more interesting.

So I start another, stunning book.

I'll return to this book on another occasion :)
