Happy Monday guys! I hope your week starts off beautifully! I picked out the books I’m planning on reading this week and one of them is “Spring” by Ali Smith. I read “Autumn” during the Fall because duh (how could I read it any other season??? ) and I fell in love with Smith’s words. Her thoughts were hard to follow in the beginning, but once I let Smith lead me I was mesmerized. There were so many profound sentences that it was hard not to stop and just take it in. So to say I have high hopes for this one would be an understatement. 😅
“Spring” was #gifted by @pantheonbooks . ...
With Scott Davis on guitar, I'm giving a dramatic performance of poetry during an art show opening at La Spiaza Coffee House in Wheaton, IL (March 2009). I namechecked various Beat poets. Alan Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac and others, with a strong nod toward Charlie Parker. And the message was "I'm not beat." I have so much to be thankful for. I have no complaints.

| RESENHA | CORTE DE NÉVOA E FÚRIA - SARAH J MAAS | Editora Galera Record |
Finalmente vou falar de um dos meus livros preferidos aqui! Já faz um tempo que estou planejando essa resenha, mas nunca ia pra frente. Normalmente porque eu nunca ficava satisfeita com a foto. Haha
Como esse livro é o segundo, não vou focar na história, e sim no que eu achei.
Se você me acompanha no ig, já deve estar de saco cheio de saber que eu amo essa série com todo meu coração.
O livro foi um daqueles que me atingiu no coração. Me identifiquei com os problemas da personagem principal, pois a Feyre passa por uma depressão muito forte. Eu me enxerguei no livro, e em vários momentos cheguei a entender o que eu sentia lendo sobre isso ali.
Eu achei que a evolução da Feyre como pessoa, e também sua evolução romântica, foi muito bem escrita e que fez todo sentido com a personagem.
Amei o fato de, assim como a autora fez em Herdeira do Fogo, o livro abordar depressão sem fazer disso o assunto principal do livro.
Eu já amo a escrita da autora, e aqui ela explica tudo que ficou em aberto no primeiro livro da trilogia.
Foi uma daquelas leituras que nem senti as mais de 600 páginas passarem. A leitura me agarrou e só me soltou quando terminei de ler.
Qual livro que você leu que te fez sentir completamente abraçada e compreendida? ...
First of all can we all just enjoy that lovely cover! It's just beautiful!
I really liked this novel and although there was a mystery aspect involved, it felt a little more like a drama to me.
Paola and Emily go on a vacation and one day Emily wakes up on the boat and finds Paolo gone. Since Paola knows how to swim, he couldn't have drowned but Emily cannot seem to find any other explanation. Where did he go? But when evidence surfaces, Emily thinks he could have been murder. But by whom? And why?
This was an intriguing synopsis which is what made me want to read it. Emily and Cal (Paolo's best friend) work together to try and uncover what really happened to Paolo and if he really was murdered. I did think that it was interesting since Jacobs is a psychologist and he created Emily's character as one as well. One thing I would've liked to see a little more of was Emily in action. I wuold have loved to see Emily with a patient and just how she would work as a psychologist, but sadly we didn't get to see that.
We got to see Emily struggle with Paolo's disappearance and see how far she would go to uncover what really happened to him. I think the novel wrapped up very well, and the twist was solid enough to make the whole novel come together.
Many thanks to HarperCollins for providing me with an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
