Books I am taking to college

Hello fellow book lovers!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you the books I am taking with me to college.

If you follow me on twitter probably you already know I am going off to college, actually I’m going in the day before you are reading this, or at least the day before I am publishing this, and because I can’t take my entire shelf with me, I needed to narrow it down to only a few books. I am going to live in my godmother’s house (again, if you follow me on twitter you may know why) and I am simply taking three physical books with me so I don’t take to much space.

So here they are, the physical books and e-books I am dragging with me to college.

As I am going to come back home every weekend (it’s only an hour ride), I may bring different books from time to time. I have not read the book in the middle, I read the others, but I love them so much I can’t leave them behind.

The Playslist Book Tag

 

 

Hello, fellow bookworms.

Today, I’m going to do an exciting tag, the playlist book tag sums up two of my favourite things ever: books and music. I listen to music every day, I literaly breathe music, I did a post only dedicated to my favourite music at the moment.

Let’s skip the babbling and get to the point, here are the songs that remind me a lot of books I’ve read.

“Cut back down to my knees
Gotta get back, gotta get free
Cut back down to my knees
Lean back now, lean back and breathe”

 

 

 

 

I am going to be 100% honest with you and tell you that there is not a reason for me to relate this song to The Raven Boys other than I heard it first in a fan video about the opening credits of this series’ adaptation. Fan Video link.

“And I don’t really care
If nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got
A lot of fight left in me”

“The more I stray the less I fear
And the more I reach the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh it’s calling out and I won’t walk away”

“A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we’ll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way”

“I’ll hold you when things go wrong
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn
Baby, I am right here”

“I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean

I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut”

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed TEDx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun.

With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike.

Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

My Rating : 5 stars // Goodreads link // Chimamanda’s Ted Talk – “We Should All Be Feminists”

A stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure’s agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall.

In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure.

Doerr’s gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

 

I have actually not read this book yet but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, and I’ll, definitely, pick it up as soon as I’m able to buy it.

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Top 5 Thursday: Books that have personal meaning to me

Everytime I read a book it means something to me, I’ll probably remember something about it forever, but these books are different, these books mean special things to me, personal things.

I can’t choose only one book out of this series, I always loved them all. When I was a kid, my godmother used to give me tons of books, she thought every ocasion was good to give a book, I remember that she gave the first ones when I didn’t even knew how to read. Geronimo Stilton was the series that marked my childhood the most.

Geronimo Stilton was and still is a big part of my life, I own 15 books and also some movies. I don’t quite know why this was such an important thing on my childhood, I devored those books, I believe they were the first books I read about mystery and crime solving. Today I consider it to be the series that got me into reading.

 

  • Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix: Goodreads

I’ll admit it, please don’t throw rocks at me, I read Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire before I read the rest, actually I’m reading them in order now.

There I was, a 12 year old girl spending some days on her uncle’s house, with a 800 pages book on her hands, excited like hell to read it. I read this book in 4 days and as soon as I finished it, I started rereading it.

Everytime I am feelling down I reread this book or the one that is bellow this one. Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix still is, to this day, my favourite Harry Potter book and I believe it is going to keep like this.

 

4.12 stars of rating on goodreads, pretty good, but not enough, this book deserves all the starts for a simple reason: it has the character that everyone in the book community was waiting to read about.

Cath is like us, a fangirl, she reads, she writes and she is considered one of the most relatable characters I have ever read about. Fangirl has different and unique characters.

Relatablility is the thing that puts this book in this list, every time I read Fangirl it speaks to me in a very magical way, I can, without even trying, to place myself in Cath’s place.

 

I read this book in an afternoon, it was the fastest book I read in my life, I loved every single sentence of it and I will read it and recommend it and quote it to anyone who believes gender inequality is a non-existent thing. *Mr.whompa loompa, president of USA*.

Because of this book you can see that in my blog’s sidebar, specifically on my Get To Know Me text, I consider myself a feminist and I’ve been doing it since I read this book, it doesn’t mean I wasn’t a feminist before, I just started calling myself a feminist then because I realized that it was a bigger issue than i thought.

This book made me the activist that I am today, last year, in the same class, I managed to make a public speaking about Gender Equality ( in which a got 20/20) and a essay about environment, two things that I am really passionate about.

 

I finished reading this amazing book in June 18th, I created this blog a couple of days after it. This was the book that got me into blogging.

None of my friends reads fantasy, most of them are into contemporary and romance so when I finished acomaf I had an urge to talk to someone about it, it was he best book I read this year and the feelings that it left me with were taking over my life. Therefore I created High Lady’s Library which now is big part of my life.
