    Monday morning bookshop beauty! 🙌
•
I’ve followed the venerable Parnassus Books in Nashville, Tenn. for a long time on Instagram, so I felt a bit like I was making a pilgrimage today.
•
They were about to hold a reading of James Joyce’s Ulysses when I visited. Rob’s and my purchase was rather prosaic for the highbrow atmosphere: a Lonely Planet guide to the USA. 🇺🇸

Dɪᴇ Pɪʟʟᴇ ᴜɴᴅ ɪᴄʜ ᴠᴏɴ Kᴀᴛʀɪɴ Wᴇɢɴᴇʀ
.
Macht man sich eigentlich nach Jahren mit der Pille noch Gedanken darüber, was man sich da täglich einwirft?
In 'Die Pille und ich' stellt man sich genau diese Frage und viele mehr.
.
Das Buch durchläuft die geschichtliche Entwicklung der Pille von der Markteinführung in den 60ern bis heute. Die Autorin schafft es, die jeweilige Intension der Pille zur damaligen Zeit einzufangen und zu begründen, denn die Zeiten ändern sich schließlich und mit ihnen die Einstellung zur Pille oder die Gründe, warum frau diese einnimmt. Das eigentliche Kernstück dieses Buches sind meiner Meinung nach aber die vielen Wortmeldungen befragter Personen aller Altersklassen. Begonnen von Frauen, die die Pille bei Markteinführung genommen haben bis hin zu Teenagern in der heutigen Zeit, die erzählen, was sie von der Pille halten und warum sie sie nehmen.
.
Fazit: Ich finde "Die Pille und ich" sehr gelungen, da die Pille nicht nur aus heutiger Sicht, sondern im Wandel der letzten 50 Jahre beschrieben wird. So kann man auch heute noch die Frauen der 60er oder 80er verstehen und deren Empfindungen und Einstellungen nachfühlen.

    Werbung (unbezahlt/Geschenk! 😁) Guten Morgen!

Eine neue Woche bricht an und für den Start in die Woche eine wunderbare Empfehlung von mir an euch. Ich habe euch bereits vor einiger Zeit die Empfehlung von Mildred Pierce aus dem @arche_verlag gegeben. Eines meiner Highlights in diesem Jahr. Natürlich kam ich nicht umhin ein weiteres Buch des Autors James M. Cain zu lesen. "Der Postbote klingelt immer zweimal" ist zwar so ganz anders als meine geliebte Mildred, aber auch ein ganz besonderer Roman, der absolut lesenswert ist. .
Es geht nicht um einen Postmann, dennoch ist der Titel mehr als passend für den Verlauf der Geschichte, die ich nun ein wenig anreißen werde. Aber auch hier gilt wieder: weniger ist mehr, lest James M. Cain!!! Frank Chambers, unsere Hauptperson ist ein Vagabund sondergleichen. Sowohl das Glücksspiel hat es ihm angetan, als auch sich perfekt in Situationen einzufinden. Eines Tages macht er Rast in einem griechischen Diner, in den Taschen einen Haufen Nichts, jedoch in Perfektion ausgestattet mit einem gewissen Scharfsinn. Der Betreiber des Diners ist Franks Esprit sofort verfallen. Und Frank Coras. Cora ist die Frau des griechischen Besitzers, und steht  eben diesem eher abfällig gegenüber. Die Sogkraft der beiden wird immer stärker, genauso wie ihr schier unlösbares Problem. Doch die beiden schmieden einen unmoralischen Plan, der jedoch weitere Probleme mit sich führt.
.
Wieder einmal fantastisch geschrieben, konnte mich der Autor restlos begeistern. Mildred ist meines Erachtens zwar nicht zu übertreffen, doch auch diese Geschichte hat wieder einen speziellen Sog. Es wird recht schnell klar: das kann nicht gut gehen. Auf leisen Sohlen kündigt sich ein unaufhaltsames Desaster an. Mit großer Aufregung las ich den Roman und wurde in keinster Weise enttäuscht. Ihr Lieben,  ich hab diesen Monat einen Lauf!

Habt es schön!
Eure Aki

    QOTD: is there a cover you’d like to change? And what would you change?
🌸
I love exclusive covers, but this one is really amazing. The sprayed pages follow the exact colour of the cover, it’s so beautiful 🥰 it’s just an added bonus to how amazingly diverse this book is, there are só many queer characters and it’s so inclusive! I’m a happy Michelle 😊

    Bana büyüleyici bir kitap serisi önerir misin diye sorsanız hiç kuşkusuz size Ramses'i öneririm. Kendisi 95 model olmasına karşın bendeki büyüleyiciliğini halen daha bir başka seriye kaptıramamış durumda. Bu durum belki de küçüklüğümden beridir Mısır'a ve hikayelerine duyduğum hayranlıktan dolayıdır. Küçüklüğümde zevkle izlediğim Tutankamon çizgifilmlerini ve üniversitede Sanat Tarihi dersinde özenle Mısır'ı ve piramitlerini seçtiğim sunum konularını da atlamamam gerekir. Ve ne hikmetse Thailand'a kadar gidip de Mısır'a ayak basamamış olmak da kaderin bir cilvesidir heralde (: Olsun diyelim, Ra'nın güzelim gözü bedenimde yaşatıyor bana bu mistik güzellikleri.
______☀______
Peki kimdir bu Ramses? "Ramses: Muzaffer komutanların en büyüğü, gerçeğin koruyucusu Güneş Kral." Hiyeroglif yazılarını çözerek Mısır'ın gizemli geçmişinin kapılarını açan Jean- François Champollion, hayran olduğu II.Ramses'i bu sözlerle tanımlamıştı. 'Işığın Oğlu' diye tanımlanan Ramses, M.Ö. 1279 yılından M.Ö. 1212 yılına kadar, tam 67 yıl boyunca ülkesini yönetmiş ve onu, politik gücünün ve kültürel etkisinin zirvesine oturtmuştur.
______☀______
Bu dizeler sadece önsözde bulunanlardan bir parça.. Kitabın devamını tahayyül edebiliyor musunuz? Anlatılmaz da yaşanır cinsten bir dünyanın içine adım atmak isterseniz Ramses size bu güzelim yaz günlerinde içinizi ürpertecek destanlıkla ve bedeninizde estireceği tılsımlı havasıyla eşlik etmeye hazır. 
Peki siz hazır mısınız?

    Are you reading any good LGBTQ+ inclusive books for pride month? 💘
-
I feel like I've been absent from Instagram for like several weeks, but it's only been like three days. I do have summer break, though, so hopefully that means time has slowed down and my summer will be extra long. Sounds good to me. 😂 I also managed to get a COLD on the first day of summer break, I don't know what kind of bad luck that is, but I'm feeling better now. Right now it's 6 AM and me and my mom are on our way to a city that's about 1,5h away from us to service our car, so we're going shopping and stuff while we wait, and it really feels like summer.
-
As for a reading update, I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone a few days ago and I really liked it. Now I'm over halfway through the sequel and I'm really liking it. It's a masterpiece when it comes to the worldbuilding, and the story itself is really good. It's not as good as Strange the Dreamer, but I guess that makes sense since Strange is newer. Still not bad, though, I really enjoy it. 😄

    “𝐈 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐝 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤. 𝐎𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐰 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐦𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧." This book got a unique plot and setting. Spooky and very disturbing scenarios. It literally kept me up at some nights because every chapter will definitely get you hooked. Sara is a great narrator. Her love for her sister is very admirable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only downfall of this book is the constant popping of characters in the story. It was really confusing. Although there is a footnotes to keep you on track, it will still confuse you and make you think, “wait, what?” Also, this book is a little bit long in my opinion, but the ending was really worth it. Never expected it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So my tip: Remember the names. Remember every member of the group and even the small detailed characters to avoid confusion and save you time from back tracking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Overall, it was such a nice read! Thank you @definitelybooks and #Pansing for providing me an Advance Copy of this book. This book will be available to all good bookstore by 24th of September 2019.

    I finished this one just before our camping trip and forgot to share.
This one had been on my list for a while and I was glad to finally read it (thanks Bibi for getting it for me).
Born a Crime is a memoir about growing up in South Africa. Such a good read for learning more about apartheid in South Africa and how race, in general, impacts the way people live. Trevor Noah is a super funny story teller but I’ll go ahead and issue a language warning 🤭. He shares so many valuable insights that I think this is a worthy read. I also loved reading about an area we’ve visited and that is close to our son’s country of birth. Anytime you can read a book by an author with a different set of cards than the ones you’ve been dealt, it’s like stepping into their shoes for a while and it might just change the way you see things.

    8/10: I was wondering right before I read this if I would ever rate Atwood’s writing lower than a 9 or 10. This was definitely a compilation of randomness, which was enjoyable and the shortness of each... mediation might be the best word to describe these cohesive ramblings... served as a great palate cleanser. I was a little disappointed as I found some of the chapters felt a bit forced. A few really caught my attention, however. This included “Let Us Now Praise Stupid Women”, “Unpopular Gals”, and “Making a Man”. My overall opinion is to only read if you are a hardcore Atwood fan, such as myself.

    Good evening! Recently I finished reading Veil of Ashes (Princess Vigilante #2) and Caraval. One I gave a 4/5 stars, and the other I gave a 5/5. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with Caraval and it had easily become one of my favorite books. I’ll keep it short and not post a part of my reviews for each of them on here, but if you’re interested, they can be found on my goodreads, bookbub, and blog. You can find the links in my linktree! .
.
Qotd: what was your last 5 star read?
.
.
Aotd: Caraval 🃏 I am so happy to have finally connected with a character (Scarlett) in a book. Most of the characters are fearless, but she was able to grow from being cautious and I found that to be very captivating. Especially since I tend to be on the cautious side as well. .

    Notes on a Scandal by Zöe Heller 👀 *SPOILER WARNING*
I found this to be a surprisingly profound study on the interlocking natures of discontent and loneliness. Sheba's repeated consent to the repetitively scandalous motions of her affair were precipitated by unguarded feelings of dissatisfaction, which Barbara eagerly brought under a magnifying glass. Sheba is a wonderfully twisted specimen of desire and could very well be the subject of a book entitled "Why We Cheat" (if there was one). Contrary to what several Goodreads reviewers seemed to think, I didn't find Barbara mischievous or cunning — just impregnably lonely. Taking possession of Sheba at her vulnerable moments seemed to me one of the natural courses of her overwhelming solitude. She overstepped boundaries, undeniably, but Heller painted her so sympathizingly that I couldn't help but acknowledge the roots of why she acted the way she did toward Sheba.

Overall, highly recommended for anyone interested in Freudian character studies.

Puan:5/5 "Kendi gerçeklerine ulaşana dek her gerçekten şüphe et."
✴
Herkese merhabalar. Bugün özel bir kitabın yorumu ile buradayım. Çünkü ilk defa yazarı Türk bir bilim-kurgu kitabı okudum. Başlarken biraz önyargılı davranmadım değil ama kitap kesinlikle isteklerinizi karşılıyor.
✴
Kitabın ana karakteri Ervin Altan kişilik değişmesi yaşayan bir savaş pilotu. 2100'lü yıllarda Çinli ve Türk bilim insanları bir madde keşfeder, Şeytanın Gözyaşı. Bu madde yaşlanmayı belirli bir yaşa kadar durdurur ve daha sonra da Ölümsüzlük Deneyleri'nin başlamasına sebep olur. Deneyler için zenginler parasını, fakirler ise canını sundu. Ölümsüzlüğü elde etmek için öldürülen masumlar çoktu. 2302 yılında Hera lakaplı Ervin Altan görünürde Ölümsüzlük Deneyleri'nin destekçisi gibi görünsede hakikatte bunu durdurmak için Proje'de çalışan biridir. Sistem, ölümsüzlüğü bulduğunda kaynak yetersizliğini bahane ederek fakir halk için ölüm emri verecektir. Ve bu katliam planını durdurmak isteyen Proje, başarılı bir asker olarak Ervin Altan'ın kendisine en çok ihtiyaç duyulan zamanda uyandırılmak üzere Cryonics yöntemiyle donduruyor. 100 yıl sonra Hera, ölümsüzlere karşı başlatılacak olan isyan hareketlerine liderlik edecektir.
✴
Öncelikle kitabı beğendim fakat kafamı karıştıran, hoşlanmadığım birkaç durum oldu. Kitap ana karakterin ağzından yazılmış ve ana karakter kişilik bozukluğuna sahip olduğundan yer yer Ervin'in girdiği kişilikler kafamı karıştırdı. Bazen halkın Hera'yı fazla efsaneletirdiğini düşündüm. Çünkü Hera savaş pilotu ve savaş uçağı kullanıyor, birkaç dövüş tekniği biliyor, normal zekaya sahip biri. Bu detaylar içinde Hera'yı kitaptaki kadar efsaneleştirecek bir özellik bulamadım. Bence Hera'yı diğerlerinden ayıran tek özelliği kararlılığı ve cesareti. Ki bunu da yapsın da diğerlerinden farklı olup baş karakter olabilsin.
✴
Kitap bir üçleme şeklinde olacak, çıktığında diğer kitapları da okumayı düşünüyorum.

    HAPPY SUNDAY, BOOKIES—
QOTD: What read are you spending the weekend with?
.
I’m still making my way through my four current reads, though, I’ve spent most of my Sunday with Queen of Air and Darkness—the f e e l s, guys, the feels! I’ve passed the halfway mark and am insanely glad that at 800+pages, I’ve still got another normal book-length left before I need to say goodby to what have become some of my favorite Shadowhunter characters.
.
Happy Hugs 🤗
