Ecco a voi un mercoledì da leoni.
Un editore, di una grandissima casa editrice, @adelphiedizioni , malato di tennis, con una perfetta ironia e teatralità ci regala questo libro.
Mercoledì all’interno del @iltempo_ritrovato sarà un bellissimo e imperdibile pomeriggio.
Alle 17.00 Matteo Codignola, come editore, traduttore, editor @adelphiedizioni verrà a trovarci/trovarvi in libreria per raccontarci la casa editrice e le novità secondo lui (e noi lo seguiamo fedelissime) imperdibili.
Alle 18.00 alla biblioteca classense come autore con Matteo cavezzali, ci racconterà il suo libro in arrivo nelle librerie.
Noi lo stiamo leggendo e non riusciamo a smettere di ridere pensando a #torben, un geniale tennista/musicista, padre.. del batterista dei #metallica; ci ricordiamo Nove e i suoi occhi con una vita propria mentre aspetta di ricevere e dilata le pupille “oltre quanto si immaginerebbe possibile”; scopriamo nomi di personaggi del tennis del passato e continuiamo a ridere e a sognare per come Matteo Codignola ce li regala.
Questo non è un libro solo per chi ama questo sport, ma per chi ama il Bello e l’ironia sottile che dovrebbe accompagnare tutte le nostre vite. .
📚Desde a infância sou uma leitora apaixonada, e mesmo com a rotina pesada de trabalho + estudo nunca abandonei o hábito da leitura de obras literárias. Lia durante o percurso para meus compromissos, e jamais saía de casa sem um livro na bolsa. 📚Porém, quando minha única filha nasceu há 3 anos atrás, o cansaço da maternidade aliado aos afazeres domésticos fizeram com que eu abandonasse os livros. Em meu (raro) tempo livre eu acabava fuçando em redes sociais ou vendo TV, porque não conseguia me concentrar na leitura. 📚Em 2018 prometi que voltaria a ler pelo menos uma obra por mês. Infelizmente não consegui cumprir minha meta no primeiro semestre, mas fiz pé firme e iniciei meu projeto pessoal em julho, e desde então tenho conseguido ir adiante. 📚Meus escolhidos deste ano foram:
Julho: "Os bebês de Auschwitz" - Wendy Holden
Agosto: "O orfanato da Srta. Pelegrine para Crianças Peculiares" - Randon Riggs
Setembro: "O Homem que Calculava" - Malba Tahan
Outubro: "Histórias de Fantasmas" - Charles Dickens
Novembro: "O Egípcio" - Mika Waltari 📚É uma lista modesta diante dos perfis literários que postam dezenas de resenhas anualmente... Mas essa é minha realidade hoje em dia: poucos livros, mas leituras com dedicação! 📚Você já leu algum livro desta mini pilha? O que achou? 🤓

'Captain Elephant' by Aseem Mahajan
*Full review in my blog. Link is in the bio.*
The story of the novel,with a really amazing cover revolves around the protagonist, Mayas, who was born in the Indian island Pinzoora, with a special physical disorder. Mayas was born with his heart placed at his rear.
Mayas, from his childhood, has been restricted by his parents with special care in his school and life for his physical disorder. But Mayas for all this special restrictions, has been always mocked by his fellow classmates and many people around him. So, he was disgusted for not being independent with his life.
But this disorder of him, which everyone thought to be a curse, proves to be the best for not only him but for the city. Mayas, the Captain elephant with supernatural powers, proves his power when there's a massive terrorist attack in his city Pinzoora, with the help of inspector Kangi and his team.
The first part revolves around the time of the difficulties that Mayas faces in school, life, home everywhere. And, the second part describes about the terrorist attack by the dreaded terrorist named Popananda, and how Mayas have saved the city from the nuclear bomb attack.
Things I liked about the book:
✔️The plot was an unique one. The author tried to create a different kind of super hero novel with full of mystery.
✔️The story, in the beginning was very much appealing. . ✔️The character building was really good.
✔️ The humors that the author tried to put in the family of Mayas, is really commendable. .
✔️ There were limited number of characters, so the narration was clear enough to understand.
Things I didn't like about the book:
✔️The story begins so appealingly, but in the Midway it misses out the thrill and becomes a bit off. It happens because some of the incidents and parts has been dragged so much and so much described, which was actually not needed.
✔️ Some of the conversational parts ( for example conversations between Mayas and inspector in the jungle) was dragged a bit too much.
This novel is filled with humor, mystery. If you are a lover of super-hero novels, you can definitely give it a read. .

I’m warning you right now, I’m going to post about RAYNE AND DELILAH’s MIDNITE MATINEE more and more because even at almost two weeks later I’m still smitten with this story! Jeff Zentner writes how YA needs to be written...from the heart. This book is friendship personified with all the little cracks in between. With love, loss, new relationships, and forever friendships, I cannot say how much I loved this one. THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST! Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee releases on 2/26/19 and is available for preorder now!
💬What’s your favorite YA book? If you don’t read YA, give me a rec in any genre!
This book is made of stuff dreams are made of. I did not read this book, I dreamt it. Each sentence is sheer poetry. I surrendered myself completely from the first page, from then on I was carried away like a twig in the wind. There's just two other books which have been such rewarding reading experiences and those two have been debuts as well. "God of small things" by Arundhati Roy, "Boats on land" by Janice Pariat and now "Latitudes of longing" by @swarupshubhangi . These are my absolute favourite books. I know how difficult it is to choose favorites but when you come across such gems, you can't deny that they shine brighter than others. Coming back to the book, it is not just the language that's beautiful, the characters are some of the most varied you'll ever find in a book. Swipe to read the blurb and you'll see. I also loved the fact that I was transported instantaneously to the places in the book. It was almost as if I'm being sucked into the pages by some metaphysical force. I surely have lived the lives of all the characters and the transition was so smooth, I didn't even realise when I was left with myself in the Drakpo village and couldn't move ahead, the book, sadly had ended. .

📖“How you interact with your universal support team is significant,” Dyer writes. “How you view others is a projection of how you view yourself...It’s so important to see interactions as holy encounters, because this set in motion an attractor energy pattern. In a holy relationship, you attract the collaboration of higher energies. In an unholy relationship, the attractor pattern exists, too, attracting low energies and more unholy relationships. By bringing higher spiritual energy to everyone you encounter, you dissolve lower energies.” (pp. 94-95)
