A Woman | Sibilla Aleramo

Pickpick

"Time and space seemed to me to be fluid, carrying me on their stream; I was the Wandering Humanity, the aimless Humanity, yet inflamed with ideal: the Humanity enslaved by some laws and yet driven by a rebellious will to break them down, to make an existence free from them ..."
Absolutely fabulous! Please read it, especially if you're a mother, it's heatbreaking!
Please let me know if you read it, I'd like to share this reading.

Where Are You Roaming? | Gabrielle DuBois
post image

Novels ambassadors of happiness!

By writing her first novel, the author had a goal: to have fun, to escape from her daily life, to find back smile and well-being.
That's all ?
Yes, and that's a lot, it's even essential because, as the author says:
"When the writer is happy to write a story, the reader is happy to read it!"

www.gabrielledubois.net also thanks readers, maybe you're there!

My #bookstack! What do you notice?

SamHeartCoffee Kate Chopin and Maya Angelou. I loved The Awakening. 13mo
GabrielleDubois Hi, @Jobe Here's a bookstack to complete your current reading! 😉 13mo
GabrielleDubois @SamHeartCoffee I read Wollstonecraft, David-Neel, Sand, Woolf, and I'm currently reading Kate Chopin The Awakening, and I love it! And I loved the others too. Reading women changes the way we see the world and ourselves, women. I see we share a lot and can learn a lot from one another. 13mo

Hi, female readers!
Maybe you would be interested in my new blog post on Goodreads, the title is:
To my daughter
It's about how us, women, behave unconsciously.

JennyM Such a lovely picture 13mo
GabrielleDubois @JennyM Yes, the "picture" is lovely, thank you, Jenny! ? It's been a big big step for me to post my portrait first on the back cover of my books, and then on Goodreads and ... here! 13mo

GabrielleDubois @arlenefinnigan Oh, thanks Arlene! As I wish female word is heard, read and seen, I try my best to share female authors and female thoughts. They're are so many clever and passionate women out there waiting for men to let them have the place they deserve. 13mo
GabrielleDubois @Suet624 Hi, Sue, so you read my blog post on Goodreads? So you're also on Goodreads, maybe? 🙂 13mo
Suet624 I am on Goodreads. Same name as on Litsy. I don‘t use Goodreads too often (honestly, I find it hard to navigate) and I had a hard time finding your blog but, yes, I read it and applaud your thoughts. 13mo
GabrielleDubois @Suet624 Wonderful, Sue! I'll have a look at your page. I found it hard too, in the beginning because it's computer and because it's all in English. But I finally managed. I surprised myself but I found it interesting to share our readings. Not that I don't care about other readers' thoughts, but I'm more used to work alone on my writing. But there are always good things coming out of discussions. 13mo

Reader's humour ...
I was told that I had a problem. So this morning, I went to the doctor's.
'Hello doctor. Here's the problem: each time I open a book, the world disappears around me. Look,' I said, diving into my book ...
'Madam? asks the doctor.

"The author, Gabrielle Dubois, develops each character thoroughly. We come to know Louise intimately as she grows both physically and emotionally through the book. Each new character who is introduced is given adequate space in the book so that we also know them, know how they came to be where they are and why they are now in Louise's life..."

A pray is supposed to go up to heaven, to touch God or his angels, and fall back on you in grace, strength, or hope. But sometimes it fails, and that gives this beautiful quote: "I prayed, but the words fell to the ground, without meaning." #gabrielledubois #bookreview on #goodreads

Jettatura | Theophile Gautier

Small by its length, but so great by its strength!
Jettatura, the bad spell in Napoli.
The ruthless jettatura will mingle with this simple but beautiful love story by the sublime Théophile Gautier. By sowing destruction and death, the jettatura reveals the strength of love.
No moral or useful purpose, only beauty in writing and feelings — the highest and most noble in human beings.
It's beautiful, it's strong, it's #theophilegautier !

GabrielleDubois @CarolynM Yes! A Tom Roberts painting! A great Australian painter, I love his paintings too Carolyn. And yes, the heroine travels in Mistress Mine - France, Polynesia, Australia... from 1876 to 1880. I read a lot of memoirs by French people who went to these different countries at the time, so I couldn't see through their eyes. It was interesting, surprising and fun! Enjoy and let me know, please! 1y

"Oh, but in a bitter wind to have nothing on and know there never will be anything on and you going to get colder and colder till at last you die of it—that's what it was like, living with somebody who didn't love one." That‘s why Lotty Wilkins decides, one day, to use her savings to take holidays in Italy, near the sea, and share the rent of this wonderful place with three other English women whom she meets them by newspaper classifieds.

CarolynM Love this book, and the movie too 1y

The Leopard: Revised and with new material | Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
post image
Pickpick

Italy 1860, monasteries and convents are numerous, Garibaldi's revolutionaries are organizing.
"Soon it would be dark, convents became the despots of the panorama. It was against them that the fires in the mountains were kindled, fanned by men who were entirely like those who lived in convents, equally fanatical, equally closed-minded, just as eager to power, that is to say, as usual, idleness." Wonderful book, reviewed on Goodreads!

GabrielleDubois This Litsy is frustrating! 451 words are really not enough to talk about 100 000 words! 😠 Don't you think so? I always have to cut so much that I think what I write seems not undestanable. 2y
