All the Sonnets of Shakespeare | William Shakespeare
post image

I recently made a trip to the library, and I may or may not have raided the poetry shelf. The ones I borrowed include, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Paradise Lost, and the Shakespeare Sonnets! I‘ve been really getting into poetry these days, finding the freeness of it intriguing. I‘m hoping I could learn a thing or two about writing them, a little summer project for me! :)

Reyzl Bravo 👏🏻 I don‘t read poetry often but, when I do, I really enjoy it. Last summer, I read my first Swedish poems and, even though it was harder than English, it was very moving. I guess that poetry has that magic that transcends even language at times. I loved the poem you wrote and I hope to see more 😍 2d
Sharv_Sona @Reyzl I truly believe that poetry is the freest form of writing as the words seem to glide like feathers in a late autumn breeze or like soft waves hugging the shore. This is why I‘ve fallen in love with poetry and as for the poem I wrote to you, I am filled with immense joy that you liked it, as it was my first poem. 😊 2d
Reyzl @Sharv_Sona I‘m truly honoured ❤️ 2d

I don‘t know what to say. This book has left me speechless and the rarely happens. Two words to describe this book: Emotional Damage. Usually I cry at the end of the book, or don‘t cry at all. In this book, however, I have burst into tears multiple times throughout the book. I don‘t know what to say. I don‘t even know what I‘m feeling. Broken? Complete? How can a book make me feel two contrasting emotions just through some pages?
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.

Sharv_Sona @Lovelylottereader I was thinking the same exact thing when I was writing this! 😂 1984 has really changed us all :) 2d

“I mean, I love her, and I‘d do anything for her, and I know that‘s reciprocated. But there‘s nothing romantic there. And besides, she doesn‘t feel that way about men. Or women. She‘s loves fiercely, and the people she cares about mean everything to her, but she‘s first to say she‘s rather have chocabuns warm her bed than another person. (…) That‘s a direct quote, straight from her lips.”

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK FOR AGES. IT CAME OUT YESTERDAY. I have no more patience and I am SO SO happy that I can finally read this! After the pain ‘The Gilded Cage‘ (previous book) left me in, this book better heal me.

This book pulled me right out of my reading slump which I immensely thank it for. I missed reading and I‘m glad that I came back to it with such a good book! This time I‘ve tried out annotating my book and it was so much fun! I think that this book was great, and I can‘t wait to read the sequel! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Before I begin with writing a review for the book, I would like to profusely thank @Reyzl for introducing this book to me, and yes, now that I have read this book I agree on that fact that there should be a play for this book.
Now, coming to the actual book review. I thought that this book was outstanding and completely breathtaking. In the past days, I hadn't had much time to read, but last night I read through it and it was amazing. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5!

Reyzl Woohoo!! 😍👏🏻 I knew that you would like it!! It‘s an amazing book, scary at times and disturbing, but it truly makes one reflect about human behaviour and social norms. (edited) 1mo
Sharv_Sona @Reyzl Precisely! A truly reflective book, sprinkled with a bit of trauma! 1mo

It feels like it‘s been ages since I‘ve read something other than my notes! Haven‘t had much time to read because it‘s the end of the school year and the tests are weighing down on us :( But I‘m glad that I‘m back to reading!

So excited to start this one! Also, thank you @Reyzl as you are the one who recommended this book to me! :)

Reyzl My pleasure!! I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did @Sharv_Sona It‘s one of the books that I have more vivid images of. The way it is narrated and the characters‘ development transform the text into images in a unique way. Please, let me know when you finish it, and we can discuss it. (edited) 1mo

This book has been on my TBR for ages, and I‘m glad that I had the chance to read this book! This was an outstanding book about the story of some sisters which has amazed me! I have to say, it took me longer than expected to finish this book, but I thank you @Reyzl for inviting me on this journey!

Reyzl I‘m so happy that you enjoyed it🥰 I love Beth and Laurie❤️ Do you have a favourite sister or character? I recommend the old movie too, @Sharv_Sona (edited) 1mo

I‘m sorry to say that this was quite a disappointment for me... The writing was too “casual” with too much profanity for my liking. I practically had to force myself to finish it, which is why it took me so long to finish. I suppose the storyline was good, but wasn‘t executed in a manner which I would enjoy. Others might have enjoyed it, but it just isn‘t my cup of tea. 😔

⭐️⭐️.5/5 (because I‘m feeling generous)

LoverOfLearning love love love this cover. 😍 Sorry it was a disappointment! 2mo
Sharv_Sona @LoverOfLearning was the ‘love, love, love‘ a reference to Pride and Prejudice? And yes, I was sad when it turned out to be a disappointment :( 2mo

I have no words. My love for classical literature has has increased in masses, and I am amazed at what skill there was in the Bronte sisters. I wish I could travel to the past and visit some of the amazing authors which were present during this time. This book sent me on quite the rollercoaster. My love for gothic literature has grown - if even possible. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I‘m tired of being enclosed here. I‘m wearying to escape into that glorious world, and to be always there: not seeing it dimly through tears, and yearning for it through the walls of an aching heart: but really with it, and in it.

“As they say, history does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.”

This was one of my favourite quotes from the book because we can see the truth practically happening in front of our eyes right now. I couldn‘t help but make relations from the book to our world right now, and that‘s made this book 10x better.

When reading the book, you can see how Atwood‘s writing has changed over the years, and I must say I quite enjoyed reading this. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

But among these bloody fingerprints are those made by ourselves, and these can‘t be wiped easily. Over the years I‘ve buried a lot of bones; now I‘m inclined to dig them up again.

The corrupt and blood-smeared fingerprints of the past must be wiped away to create a clean space for the morally pure generation that is surely about to arrive. Such is the theory.

This book was beautiful heartbreaking, it left me torn in shreds. I really don‘t know what else to say. It was a breathtaking story about an Afghan-American woman going back to Afghanistan to learn the truth about her family. Believe me when I say I cried. Unfortunately I could post any quotes because the internet was down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I finished this book on Thursday, but forgot to post a review, and the internet was down yesterday so I could post it then either. Either way, I enjoyed this book a lot. I mean it. I unfortunately didn‘t have the second book with me, and so I read (and finished) another book, but now I have the second book! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars.
