Hey! It's such a beautiful, crisp day in Scotland ☀️ After finishing HP and the Goblet of Fire and Small Great Things, I wasn't sure what I was in the mood for. I knew I wanted something short so I picked up Homegoing. I think it's one of the prettiest covers I've ever owned 🏵️
What are you currently reading, anything exciting that I can add to my ever growing TBR? 📚

Next books on the agenda:
Oswald Spengler's magnum opus Decline of the West Vol I & II (1926-28) and his powerful Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life (1931). Have already read his book The Hour of Decision (1934) and consider it one of the most powerful books one has ever read. It changed my life and gave me a better understanding of the brutal nature of the world as it is not as we think it ought to be. It had this impact precisely because it didn't hold back in showing some of the flaws within liberalism and showed that it is not entirely bereft of criticism or fully reflective of reality (but rather a critique of it to dampen the harshness of it). But the glory in life is in the tireless struggle against this harsh reality (not in a desire to necessarily change the harsh reality). Brave Pessimism no matter the outcome. Attempting to harness the thumos, the Faustian spirit, the will to power. Pushing for the infinite and having a sense of the Occidental ontology of 'becoming'. Dynamic never static. The world is will. There is no doubt these books will live up to expectation.

"On the last day of love my heart cracked inside my body." ❤

Since today is my birthday (25!), I thought I’d share a happy book with you. Then I realized, I haven’t really been reading happy books lately 🤷🏻‍♀️ So instead, I’m sharing this quick, beautiful read from last week!
The way Clemmons describes grief is so relatable. It’s not over-the-top; it’s about the day-to-day getting on after a parent dies. As much as I love books for escapism, I feel a close connection to books that talk about periods of life that we’ll all go through eventually. .
I also love the way the author talks about motherhood. This quote in particular will stick with me:
“I do not see the mother with a child as either more morally credible or more morally capable than any other woman. A child can be used as a symbolic credential, a sentimental object, a badge of self-righteousness. I question the implicit belief that only “mothers” with “children of their own” have a real stake in the future of humanity” 👏.
For a book you can easily read in one day, it’s very little effort for a good deal of reward. I don’t think the book is particularly memorable, but I can see myself re-reading it.
Do you try to balance out each heavy read with something lighter, or go in phases like I do where it’s a lot of heavy stuff in a row?

Sometimes it’s important to treat yourself to an extremely large soy cappuccino, a vegan mince pie and time to just sit and read without being disturbed 😌 I just got my contacts and it’s so weird! Definitely going to take some time to get used to them but I’m so far loving not having to wear my glasses and deal with them steaming up every time I go into a hot cafe or shop 😙 also, I just got a couple books from my local library however I don’t want to stop reading Harry Potter! I’m currently reading the Goblet of Fire and I don’t want to stop reading the series but I’ll probably have to return the books soon 😂 does anyone else do this? I have so many books I have to read but I go back to HP every time ⚡️📖

Ich wurde von der lieben @sarahs_buecher_universum zum #20factsaboutme getaggt. 💚
Normalerweise hinke ich bei den Tags immer sehr hinterher. Aber dieses Mal dachte ich, ich versuch es mal und setz es um. Auch wenn es doch anders wurde, als ich geplant hatte 🙊.
1. Ich habe eine Schwäche für alles, was grün ist, trage aber meist schwarze Klamotten.
2. Ich liebe Autofahren.
3. Ich gehe für mein Leben gern auf Konzerte.
4. Ich habe ein Pflegepferd. (Später möchte ich definitiv mal ein eigenes, wenn es die Zeit zulässt.)
5. Ich tanze für mein Leben gern. (Meinetwegen auch in Supermarktgängen)
6. Ich gebe einerseits leider immer noch viel zu viel darauf, was andere Leute von mir denken.
7. Andererseits ist mir deren Meinung vollkommen egal. (Beispielsweise beim Tanzen in Supermarktgängen.)
8. Ich weiß ziemlich genau, wo ich noch an mir arbeiten möchte und versuche das bestmöglich umzusetzen.
Allerdings ist das nicht immer so leicht. Denn
9. bin ich seit Jahren in Behandlung, weil es um meine psychische Gesundheit nicht immer gut bestellt ist. Das macht es oft schwieriger für mich, die Realität von meiner eigenen Wahrnehmung zu unterscheiden. Realitätscheck und so.
10. Das ist auch einer der Gründe, weshalb ich so viel und gern lese bzw Serien schaue. Wenn ich nicht unterscheiden kann, ob meine Gefühle und Gedanken wirklich real sind oder meine Wahrnehmung sie verzehrt, dann kann ich dem entfliehen. Emotionen ausleben, ohne mir darüber Gedanken zu machen, ob das jetzt berechtigt ist oder Fiktion. Erst für den Charakter im Buch / der Serie fühlen und dann für mich. Die Bücher, Serien und Musik sind dann quasi so eine Art Katalysator für mich und meine Gefühle.
11. Ich finde es einerseits erfreulich, dass immer mehr Leute offen über ihre Psyche und die damit einhergehenden Herausforderungen sprechen.
12. Andererseits ärgere ich mich sehr über den inflationären Gebrauch damit verbundener Begrifflichkeiten. Nicht jeder, der mal einen schlechten Tag hat, ist gleich depressiv und nicht jede Auffälligkeit ist gleich eine Persönlichkeitsstörung. Ach ja, und nur, weil man mal schlecht schläft, hat man nicht gleich Schlafstörungen.

Extremely touched to receive photos from Page Turners Book Group in Kent, who read and discussed The Lantern the other day. Anna made some herb and citrus bundles for everyone to take home and decorated the table according to the sensory themes. There were lanterns outside on the path, and they listened to Erik Satie. “We all had a fabulous evening and enjoyed the book very much,” she writes. “Great to be transported to summer in Provence from November in Kent!” How lovely. A big thank you, Anna, and all the Page Turners.

Books that I've started but never finish and I want to do it before the end of the year 📖
I'm a person who start reading a lot of books and the most part of the time leaves them unfinished 😶
What books have you started and want to finish soon? ❤

Estos son los libros que tengo empezados y quiero acabar antes de que acabe el año 📖
Soy una persona que empieza muchos libros y los deja a la mitad (sin ninguna razón) y a los meses los retoma 😶
¿Qué libros tenéis empezados y queréis acabar antes de que acabe el año? ❤
