An adorable book for kids with different tricks to help them sleep, some lovely craft ideas like creating a night diary, a glitter jar of stars, a sock full of different aromas that can help you sleep, or a box where you can put your anxieties away for the night, together with some tricks to help the kid falling asleep. The illustrations are absolutely adorable #NetGalley

I wouldn't have finished this book if it didn't come from NetGalley.The story doesn't make much sense,why would a supposedly brilliant Chief Inspector decide to conduct all his investigations in a barber shop with some friends that don't seem to offer any assistance.The writing needs polishing, the style is amateur, particularly in the dialogues, the ones between Scorbion and his girlfriend are particularly bad. #NetGalley

When Marcia Pullman is found dead,Chief Inspector Dube,goes to investigate,however soon the victim's husband and even the rest of the police want him off the case.This is a VERY slow burn that goes for 500 pages, but I did enjoy the detail of the investigation and it kept me hooked,you never know what's going to happen next. Set in Zimbabwe, it touches corruption and racial themes.

Harry takes Snape's memory to the Pensive,he sees how Snape and Lily were best friends,and how their friendship deteriorated because Snape was surrounded by Death Eaters and Lily refused to continue to be friends.He sees Snape asking Dumbledore to protect Lily and promising to protect Harry after her death,how Dumbledore had only one year to live after the accident on his hand and Snape promised to kill him to save Draco's soul. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

nanuska_153 The patronus that guided Harry to the sword was Snape,a doe because of his love for Lily.Finally Dumbledore explains Snape that one fragment of Voldemort's soul attached to Harry the night when his parents died and that Harry dying at the hands of Voldemort is the only way of defeating him. #PotterADay 2mo

An easy read,I had a quiet day yesterday and flew through it.It's basically the Rear Window but with agoraphobia instead of a broken leg.The main character is obsessed with old movies,specially Hitchcock,there's A LOT of movie talk,but she only mentions the Rear Window once very superficially despite clearly reliving the movie.A So-So cause it has product placement,there's nothing I hate more than an author invading my imagination with ads.

One of the reasons I love Gabriel Garcia Marquez is because of the magic realism.These 8 short stories take place in different countries and while dealing with very serious subjects(disability,addiction,loss, loneliness...)each of them has a touch of magic realism that make it very easy to get immersed in them. It would benefit of some notes to translate/explain certain words,but the absence doesn't stop you following the story #NetGalleyARC

Howards End | E.M. Forster

Pickpick

The lifes of the Wilcoxs,a conservative very paternalistic family,and the Schlegels,a family with two independent sisters,socialist and immersed in the intellectual world,are intertwined.Very little and a lot happens all at the same time.Sometimes it can be quite dense to follow the thoughts of the different characters,but they are well drawn and like all Forster's the ideas are interesting,surprisingly advanced,and the setting is beautiful.

AvidReader25 I loved this one! 3mo
nanuska_153 @AvidReader25 Yes, I really liked it too! It's not my favourite Forster though 3mo

nanuska_153 @AvidReader25 Maurice is my favourite so far, but I still have some Forster's left so it's opened to challenge. It will be difficult to beat though, because I think objectively A Passage to India is a better book, but still love Maurice more 3mo
AvidReader25 @nanuska_153 I think Maurice is the only one I haven‘t read yet! Now I‘m going to have to bump it up the TBR. 3mo

Two NY Times journalists realise that systemic violence against women is so common that it's not considered news,they wrote this to put faces,names and details to the violence.The amount of violence against women in the world is horrible;the fact that it's seen as normal by governments and communities is terrible;but the worst part is the fact that we don't talk or do anything about it because it's common knowledge that women suffer violence.⬇️⬇️

nanuska_153 My boyfriend asked me why do I keep reading this book if it upsets me so much (I'm currently pregnant with a little girl so my hormones definitely didn't help)my answer was "because closing the book will not make it stop happening". The more people that are informed the more chances that things will change; if you want to inform yourself and find ways how you can help, read this book; it won't be easy, but it is necessary. 3mo

I love Persuasion,it's on of my favourite Austen's if not my favourite.Anne is such a rational character she could be a reader of her own story,has great capacity to understand the situations.Wentworth (♥️sigh)such a strong personality,never doubts himself,he is proud,but doesn't hesitate to leave pride behind and put himself in a vulnerable position even if he is not sure of being accepted.Sir Walter is one of the funniest Austen characters⬇️⬇️

nanuska_153 The only character I don't like is Lady Russell, a wannabe Mrs Weston, but closer to what Emma could end up being as an older person. I don't understand why Anne, who is clearly more capable of reading situations than Lady Russell puts so much interest on her opinion,I guess because she doesn't have anybody else and we all need a parental figure.Gonna miss Austen #Pemberlittens Thanks for organising this @sprainedbrain 3mo

I know this is the least favourite of many,probably because the whole object of the book is to prepare us for the next one,but I do enjoy the look into Voldemort's past and I'm so happy that I can like Harry again after how annoying I find him in The Order of the Phoenix.Also the fact that,like Harry,I can start to pity Malfoy rather than just hate him, at least it gives more dimension to the character than "he is just an evil prick"

Dumbledore was the only one who died during the battle.Bill's face was horribly disfigured by Greyback,but because Greyback was not transformed into a werewolf,Bill won't become one.Mrs Weasley finally treats Fleur well,when she learns that she doesn't stop loving Bill just because he is not handsome,after all,she is "good looking enough for both".The teachers wonder if they will keep the school open for next year
