My plan for the weekend.. #24B4Monday
I'm working on friday (and I don't know how many hours yet!), so i'll do most of my reading on saturday & sunday.
My goal is 18 hours, at least, and finish 3 books:
📚 Morning Star (I'm halfway through)
🎧 The Dream Thieves (I've listened to The Raven Boys last week and I loved it!)
📚 The Sandman, volume 2

@TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

“Usually the recipe for a bestseller is to give people what they want. My challenge is and was: give them what they do not expect. Be severe with them. The world of media is full of easy answers, wash-and-wear philosophies, instant ecstasies, what-me-worry Epiphanies. Probably readers want a little more.”

This chapter.. ?? I think it's one of the most traumatic ending ever!!
The first time I read it, I was in shock!! I couldn't believe half the things I was reading, like "Pierce Brown, what are you doing?! Also, you can't do all THIS and then expect me to wait months for the next book!!!"

Now, second time around, I'm still in shock but I've already started book3, Morning Star ?

DGRachel I STILL sob through this ending, even on rereads. I really fear what Pierce will do to the readers in Dark Age. 3mo
La_Cori @DGRachel I am worry for Dark Age as well.. 🤞🤞 let's hope it will be less painful than this one! 3mo

Chi manda le onde | Fabio Genovesi

?? "E cosa c'è dietro di noi non lo vediamo, ma qualcosa c'è. Tutto il mare gigantesco e la sua acqua che non dorme mai, e le onde che arrivano da sempre e per sempre una dopo l'altra, toccano la riva e sembra che finiscono lí, ma invece non finiscono. Solo tornano indietro per farne salire altre e altre e altre, con una spinta che non so da dove viene ma c'è, sta là in fondo e ci manda su e giù, su e giù.."

La_Cori ?? "And whatever is behind us we don‘t see, though something is there. The whole gigantic sea and the water that never rests and the waves that have always come and will always come, one after the other. They break on the shore and that seems to be the end of them. Only it‘s not. They withdraw so that the next one can rise and the next and the next, with a shove from who knows where, but it‘s there and it sends us up and down, up and down.." 3mo

This is my collection: i've got vol.1 to 4 in italian, in the first translation each book was divided in 2 or 3; there's also vol 1,2 and 5 in english (I couldn't wait for A Dance with Dragons to be translated so I bought it as soon as it came out!!).
