I had a Brontë sisters’ love-in this year, reading books by Anne, Charlotte and Emily. I’m currently reading a biography titled The Young Brontës by Phyllis Bentley. I’m fascinated to learn how this family fostered three talented authors in a time when women were usually not formally educated.

Aproveito o post para deixar um pedacinho do livro que comprei na @leituracampogrande. É do "Poesia que transforma" do @brauliobessa, publicado pela @editorasextante
"Que o medo de cair
não lhe impeça de voar.
Que o medo das feridas
não lhe impeça de curar.
E que o medo do toque
não lhe impeça de abraçar."
O que acharam? Vamos incentivar todo mundo a ler? 😘
• a whole lotta Anne Shirleys 👩🏼🦰 🏡 for a calming moment. It's the 14th of December and I still have bought only one Christmas present. One. ☝🏼 1️⃣ Oh well, I think I'll escape reality and go back to my book 🤓 •
qotd: what’s your star sign ? 🌟
- i am a leo, though i act nothing like a leo. i’m suppose to be an extrovert, confident etc. but i’m the complete opposite.
- also does anyone else buy books for just the covers, the green book on the third stack is so cute but i have no intentions of reading it.
Check out our new blog post on The Snowy Day, written in 1962. ⠀⠀
This book captures the magic and excitement of a first winter snowfall and all the possibilities it brings. The little boy Peter is filled with wonder and fun ideas as he ventures out in the new snow.
One week in...one book done. My goal is one book a week, every week I’m off 😬. #learningisbeautiful.
BTW - this book is not about how moving fast is good. It’s about how speed, in the absence of control and thoughtfulness, is dangerous. For all my friends who have played sports you know that the KILLER combination is Speed, Power and Control. These 3 are virtually unstoppable @beautifulnoun

What the heck this has pirates???? Bitch…I'm in!!! This one's hard to rate because I love ships & pirates (& I didn’t even know it?!) and finding female characters who go off on pirate adventures (again, didn’t even know it?!). And there were a ton of elements of this world that I loved, like the shadowmen, hints of magic, and harbor towns. But it was still kind of hard for me to get into the overall story. I’ll admit it took me about 35-40% to be drawn into this one, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. No, I have never read a book like this but am certainly looking forward to reading the sequel!
Caroline's father is jailed on trumped up charges. He can be freed if Caroline agrees to transport a crate to its final destination. She's told not to look into the box, but curiosity get’s the better of her &... it contains a boy around her age. Can she get her cargo to its final destination with seemingly everyone on the river out to stop her? And what about her hopes and plans for the future? What will she have to lose in order to gain back her father’s freedom? Caro's ancestors were all badass smugglers or excellent sailors, so she's following in their footsteps.
In the end I didn't care very much about the love interest, but I did like Caro! She was sassy & tough. Overall, this was an exhilarating, delightful, and charming book. If you want a YA novel filled with badass pirates, witty banter, swashbuckling action, fantastic characters, and a not so steamy romance, then this is the book for you!
Happy Reading x
