    "Solo haciendo frente a las grandes pruebas puede la Humanidad elevarse a nuevas y mayores alturas. Del peligro y de la aventura han salido siempre las fuerzas que han llevado al Hombre a nuevas y más grandes conquistas. ¿No lo entiendes? ¿No comprendes que al impedir las miserias y fracasos que torturan al Hombre, la Eternidad no le deja encontrar sus propias soluciones, difíciles pero provechosas, las soluciones verdaderas que se obtienen al vencer las dificultades, no al evitarlas?".
.
Uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos y, probablemente, una de las novelas sobre viajes en el tiempo mejor contadas. Paradojas, misterio, thriller, que giran en torno al amor entre Harlan y Noys. Un amor que finalmente trascendió el Tiempo y el Espacio. .
Asimov no dejó cabos sueltos. El fin de la Eternidad sugiere una realidad en la que los viajes espaciales son posibles y cuyo resultado es nada menos que el Imperio Galáctico. ¿Les suena? Aunque realmente nunca se confirmó, es probable que "El fin de la Eternidad" tenga relación con la saga de la Fundación. En "Los límites de la Fundación" se menciona a la Eternidad. Aunque existan algunas discrepancias, puede que existan en el mismo universo. ¡Genio de genios!

I’ve had #TheCactus by @sarahjhaywood on my shelf for AGES so I was so excited when @reesesbookclubxhellosunshine chose it as their June book club! I’m usually months behind Reese’s Book Club so I’m excited to be reading along for once! This is the story of Susan, a forty-something year old woman who has recently lost her mother, and is struggling to come to terms with the idea of becoming a mother herself. Susan has her whole life arranged perfectly- a tidy London flat, perfect for one person; a job that suits her passion for logic; and an “interpersonal arrangement” that provides cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. But as her due date nears, Susan feels her life starting to spiral out of control. Enter Rob, her indolent brother’s dubious friend. Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob, and begins to see that she might have a chance at real love after all.⁣
•⁣
So far this one’s giving me major Eleanor Oliphant and The Rosie Project vibes and I’m really looking forward to seeing where this story goes. And just look at that cover 😍⁣

    The ultimate summer thriller is here (...or will be in August)! The Turn of the Key was utterly jaw-dropping, heart-racing, and filled with so many insane twists. The story follows Rowan, a young woman who has found the perfect nanny job. The parents offered her a hefty salary and other perks in exchange for living with them and caring for their three young children in their beautiful Victorian mansion. However, Rowan isn’t exactly welcomed by the children -  nor the home itself. The narrative is based on Rowan’s letter to an attorney, which was a really interesting creative choice. Ruth Ware nailed it though!

One of the best parts of this how the author interlaced modern themes with a gothic undertone. The writing is reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe in some places - if he were to write a story in present day. Ware explores implications of technology, specifically having a “smart home.” One of Ware’s greatest strengths as a writer lies in her ability to propel a story through creating effective internal dialogue. The nod to the Victorian era was a nice touch too.

The thriller genre has exploded over the years which is fantastic for readers like me, but unfortunately, some of the stories become formulaic (guys... I’m so over the unreliable narrator trope) and the twists become predictable. Not this book, though. The Turn of the Key sets to bar for what a 2019 thriller novel should be.

Add this to your TBR list immediately and preorder! Thank you so much @netgalley and @gallerybooks for the ARC!

    I have a confession . I highlight and write in books. I take notes in the margins, on the cover and any other blank area I can find. I highlight some of those wisdom nuggets before I rewrite them. 
Now you know. 📚🖋🖍 Are you a book note and highlighter? Or are you horrified at the thought?

    Wrong Crowd (Kingsley Academy Book 1)
By Lisa Helen Grey 🔥🔥🔥Now Live!🔥🔥🔥 My entire world was turned upside down the day my mum died. I feared what my life would become when an aunt I never knew about came swooping in and threw me into the unknown. 
She was rich. I couldn’t even afford a pack of gum. 
We were complete opposites, yet I wanted a fresh start in life, and she was promising to give me that. I just had to live with her for a year, until I graduated college. However, from the very first day it became clear that I was completely out of my depth. It was a deal I couldn’t pass up, not if I wanted to stay off the streets until I could find a job to support myself.
Everyone at Kingsley Academy was in a league of their own. The girls were high-class, yet as fake as Barbie dolls, and the boys were handsome with that appealing bad boy edge. Especially Kaiden Kingsley. 
He was charismatic, athletic, and sexy as hell. He also hated me so much he was willing to do anything to send me back to where I came from. And I didn’t even know why. 
He was cold, cruel and twisted in a way I could never compete with, yet I found myself gravitating towards him. 
Secrets, lies and deceit. 
Everyone reeked of it. 
I wanted answers—needed them. 
Before my mum died, I thought I knew everything about her. It turns out, I didn’t know her at all. 
There’s a reason she left all this behind; a reason why Kaiden and his elite group are on a mission to punish me.
And I’m going to find out.

This sweet, little book was written quite well, and captivated me after the first few chapters. The beginning seemed a little rushed despite the length of the novel, however, the remaining chapters greatly overshadow this. I enjoyed reading this novel, despite how limiting the plot was able to have been in these short 200 odd pages. This book was immensely easy to read and should be enjoyable for all that reads it. I give this novel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5, generous or not. I would mostly likely read this novel again. AND again!

Murder Murder Little Star follows a seemingly insecure mother, Frances, whose children have all recently left the nest. The novel starts as Frances begins a new job with a film company as a chaperone to child star Twinkle, in an effort to occupy the freed up time that she now has. From the get-go Twinkle is presented as a spoilt, entitled brat whose fame and fortune has gotten to her head, inevitably forming enemies with her co-stars and production team, most of which remark pleasantries of her death (even by their own hands)! Frances grows sympathetic of Twinkle as her mother seems unattached at times, leaving Twinkle having to constantly defend herself as she is left without much of a support system, which Frances consequentially makes attempts to provide support Twinkle, especially as multiple attempts had been made on Twinkle’s safety on set of the production.

Nearing the end of the novel, Frances closes her relationship with Twinkle as she is praised for suggesting a brilliant idea that will start a new chapter for her career, whilst Frances battles her own insecurities and takes back control of her life after finding confidence through her new job, all in a bittersweet close to the short novel.

    The Break by Katherena Vermette, is a powerful, inter-generational story that explores the lives and relationships of 5 women - mothers, sisters, cousins, daughters - as they navigate a tragedy that unexpectedly brings them all together. Set against the backdrop of the social and economic injustice that plague so many indigenous women in Canada, this story is achingly personal and breathtaking in its clarity. Told from alternating points of view, the  novel illuminates Vermette’s astounding gift as a writer. Despite using nearly a dozen different character perspectives to bring forth the story,  each comes across fresh and true to their nature. The story’s pacing is beautiful, slowly revealing the larger picture of the tragedy and - more importantly - how all the characters are tied together. Most elegantly, Vermette is able to show off the incredible strength these women have to raise families, have careers and survive hardship with only each other to depend on. I wholeheartedly recommend this read, and would like to give thanks to the estimable @thunderbirdwomanreads for turning my eyes towards it.

Uma Mulher no Escuro ┊ Raphael Montes ┊ @companhiadasletras ┊ 256 págs. ┊ #ResenhasCeuLiterario ┊ 4,6 🌟`s
⠀
Victoria Bravo é a única sobrevivente de um crime que massacrou sua família: seus pais e irmão foram brutalmente assassinados em casa e tiveram os rostos pichados de preto por um adolescente que estudava na escola da família. Anos depois, a garota ainda carrega as marcas profundas que o trauma lhe causou - tem traços infantis de personalidade, não consegue se relacionar com as pessoas e é alcoólatra. Leva a vida sem expectativas de realização profissional ou pessoal. Não teve mais notícias do algoz da família até então; agora, porém, ele está tentando entrar em contato com ela - invadiu seu apartamento e pichou uma mensagem na parede. Em pânico, Victoria se vê acuada e sem saber em quem confiar, já que parece que ele segue seus passos, a acompanhando muito de perto.
⠀
Com um suspense bem trabalhado, o livro nos dá três possíveis suspeitos: um amigo, o psiquiatra da garota e um futuro namorado. Sabemos que o assassino da família se chama Santiago, mas o livro deixa a nosso encargo escolher um dos três para tentar definir qual dos homens é, de fato, Santiago. Toda a narrativa é feita em 3ª pessoa, exceto as páginas do diário do garoto, que nos dão uma ideia do motivo do crime, bem como passagens isoladas do assassino no presente, enquanto observa Victoria lidar com seu recente ressurgimento na vida dela.
⠀
Por ter um pequeno número de páginas, a fluidez da história é incrível, mas os personagens e a trama em si não são profundamente desenvolvidos, não gerando aquele 'laço' profundo do leitor com os personagens (que tanto amo no King, por sinal). De forma alguma isso foi negativo, já que acredito que foi intencional desenvolver a trama de forma mais rápida e numa sucessão de acontecimentos.
⠀
Foi a primeira obra que li do autor e devo dizer que não me decepcionou. Ela prende o leitor e possui reviravoltas muito interessantes, dá pra criar diversas teorias com os envolvidos. Acredito que fãs de suspense vão gostar bastante da obra, bem como quem ainda não o é mas procura um livro bom sem ser muito pesado para enfim iniciar no gênero.

Milena não aguenta mais seu chefe. Grosseiro e machista são só alguns dos adjetivos que o descreve e se ainda não bastasse tudo isso, ele não valoriza o diploma que com muito custo Milena conquistou, a menospreza pelo simples fato de ser mulher - deixando explícito que mesmo exercendo a mesma função que os homens, as mulheres são inferiores. Mesmo nesse tormento Milena não pode jogar tudo para o alto e abandonar seu emprego e por isso, vai suportando da forma que consegue e, a única razão para aguentar essa tortura, é o humor negro da melhor amiga, que sempre encontra as melhores formas de matar um chefe inescrupuloso, contudo o baile de máscaras - um reunião de ex-alunos - está próximo e mesmo temerosa em reencontrar o amor de sua juventude, Milena decide ir.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💬 Eu não gosto muito de ler livros curtos, aqueles em formato de contos, sempre acho que fica faltando alguma coisa e com Baile de Máscaras não foi diferente, em pouquíssimas horas já finalizei a história de Milena, embora devo dizer que senti que a trama tinha muito mais potencial do que foi exposto. Milena me conquistou logo no início, mas por algumas atitudes bobas, acabou me deixando com raiva e duvidando da coerência de sua postura.
Um certo ponto crucial da história, não me convenceu, a autora jogou alguns pontos aqui e ali para não deixar tal fato surreal demais, mas foi justamente esses detalhes que me deixou cética.
O triângulo amoroso foi, na minha opinião, desnecessário e a forma como foi retratado me pareceu diminuir Milena como mulher - a Milena que me foi apresentada, pouco parecia com a que interagiu com o ex.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💬 No mais, eu amei a escrita de Tatiana, foi minha primeira experiência com a autora e fiquei ainda mais curiosa em ler uma outra série dela.

    🌟Bakabiliyorsan;gör
Görebiliyorsan;farket..
🌟-Bence biz kör olmadik,biz zaten kördük.-Gören körler mi?-Gördüğü halde görmeyen körler..
Nobel ödüllü yazarın okuduğum ilk kitabı.. Öncelikle belirtmeliyim ki yazarın farklı bir üslubu var.Kitabı dümdüz yazmış,nokta ve virgülden başka noktalama işareti kullanmamış,satır başı diye bir şey yok,özellikle diyaloglarda konuşma çizgisi bile yok,bu yüzden okurken biraz zorlandım ama sayfalar ilerledikçe yazarın anlatım tarzına alıştım ve konuya daha çok hakim oldum.İlginç olan diğer bir konu da kitapta hiç isim geçmiyor..Kişiler farklı özellikleriyle tanımlanmış,ilk kör,doktorun karısı,koyu renk gözlüklü genç kız,gözyaşı yalayan köpek..gibi.Yazarın bu tarzını sevdim,en azından kim kimdir? diye karışmıyor kişiler.
Kitabın konusu da bir o kadar ilginç ..arabasının içinde trafik lambasının yanmasını beklerken birdenbire kör olan bir adam var,bu körlük öyle bir şey ki bizim bildiğimiz körlük değil,beyaz körlük..Daha sonra körlük yavaş yavaş yayılıyor ve bir salgın gibi ülkedeki herkes kör oluyor,yalnızca kör olmayan tek bir kişi var onun ise niye kör olmadığı muamma..İlk başlarda körlük diğer kişilere yayılmasın diye ilk körler karantinaya alınıyor ve onları eski bir akıl hastanesine kapatıyorlar.Sayıları arttıkça yaşam koşulları zorlaşıyor,yiyecek bulmakta bile zorluk çekiyorlar ve bunun için ağır bedeller ödemek zorunda kalıyorlar.Karantinadayken Yaşadıkları şeyler gerçekten korku vericiydi.Onları düşünürken empati bile yapamadım.
Son olarak gerçekten okunması gereken bir distopya.Her ne kadar beni okurken çok yormuş olsa da..🙈 Kitabın bir de filmi var.Uzun bir ara verdikten sonra izlemeyi düşünüyorum.
Bu arada biz bu kitabı Haziran ayında kurduğumuz okuma grubumuzla okuduk. @mavibirokur 💛 @okuyuncaanlarsin 💛 @kitaplarin_diyari_ 💛 Temmuz ayında da Albert Camus’dan YABANCI okuyacağız.Bize katılmak isterseniz mesaj atabilirsiniz💛💛💛

    🌟-Bence biz kör olmadik,biz zaten kördük.-Gören körler mi?-Gördüğü halde görmeyen körler..

    Does anyone else have posting anxiety when it comes to Instagram? ⁣
⁣
I just celebrated having this account for SIX years on May 31st, and I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without it! However, I think we all struggle with amounts of perfection thats expected with having an account that is considered an “influencer” account. ⁣
⁣
This last month, I’ve been figuring out that while ‘likes’ and ‘followers’ are great, worrying about those things takes the fun out of having an account that I had originally started for fun to begin with!! ⁣
⁣
A little confession... I used to hate posting pictures of my face on here. My friends started a “back of Carmen’s head” hashtag because I would only take pictures from the back 😂 I figured people are following because of books, not my face! I know that’s obviously not true, but it was an insecurity I had with myself, and overcoming that has been a little tricky! ⁣
⁣
I’ve been incorporating my life and more of my interests on this account, and things that make me happy overall, and I can’t tell you how freeing it is just posting what you want instead of what you think other people want. ⁣
⁣
All I’m saying is, don’t let social media run you... you run social media. Don’t get discouraged when people unfollow, or something isn’t performing well. 𝑱𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒅𝒐 𝒚𝒐𝒖, 𝒃𝒐𝒐 𝒃𝒐𝒐!

    Received a lot of backlash yesterday after opening up about my illiteracy. Instead of getting angry or upset I decided to make a change. I went to the public library and got a library card! I have always been self conscious about my inability to read so I’m taking the first steps. Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card! 📚💕💪 #rabbitsofinstagram #books #librarycard #reading @worldliteracy_foundation
