It has been way too long since I last posted. Unfortunately, I've been so busy over the last two months with the new year. So here's an old photo, and I'll try to post more!

I took a deep breath. "Try it again," i said. "Kiss me."
"No," he said. "Kiss me."
"No." And then he smiled. "You kiss me."
I placed my hand on the back of his neck. I pulled him toward me. And kissed him. I kissed him. And i kissed him. And i kissed him. And i kissed him. And he kept kissing me back.
Guten Morgen ihr Lieben 😙
Heute gibts eine Extraportion Liebe für euch mit einem Buch, dass meiner Meinung nach, viel zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit bekommt.
In 'Aristoteles und Dante entdecken die Geheimnisse des Universums' geht es um Familie, um Zusammenhalt, Freundschaft, Liebe, sich selbst finden, erwachsen werden und und und. Die ganze Story wird unterstützt durch Benjamin Alire Saenz' leise, poetische und berührende aber mächtige Art Worte zu gebrauchen, die einem tief berühren und zum nachdenken verleiten. Worte die sich ganz tief in ein Herz graben und dort nie mehr weggehen. Worte die einem verändern, wenn man es zulässt. Worte die sich die ganze Menschheit zu Herzen nehmen sollte, denn die Menschheit könnte von Ari und Dante noch eine Menge lernen.
Good morning dear ones 😙
Today you'll get a huge amount of love - I'd like to present you a book which, in my opinion, receives too little attention. 'Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe' is about family, about cohesion, friendship, love, about finding yourself, growing up and much much more. The whole story is carried by Benjamin Alire Saenz's quiet, poetic, touching and powerful way to use words that deeply touch you and thus provoke thoughts. Words which dig deep into a heart and maybe never leave. Words which might change you if you allow them to. Words which all humans should take to heart, because mankind could learn a lot from Ari and Dante.

"Do you remember the summer of the rain..."
This BOOK!!!! I absolutely adored it! I read it in one sitting the day before my Botany exam, picture that😂 It was so emotional and so touching and just perfect!!! Made me tear up a whole lot, which is something that doesn't happen often. I'm sure that I'll be re-reading it very soon.
What's your favorite thing about this book?
My absolute favorite thing is the stargazing scenes, and the overall strangely calm but at the same time sad atmosphere.
aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe is my favorite book of all time! I reread it at least once a year (I’ll probably reread it this summer) 💙💚 I’ve never related to a character as much as I relate to Ari. I’m so excited to follow the movie adaptation, hopefully the casting will be announced soon!
“Maybe we just lived between hurting and healing.” i totally forgot how good this book was

El Paso, TX, década de 1980. A televisão era o passatempo preferido de jovens e adolescentes. O mundo estava mudando, e Aristóteles, um garoto quieto e sem jeito conhece Dante, um menino talentoso e obstinado. Logo ambos descobrem não saberem viver sem o outro e os dois se suportam em busca de conhecer o que seus pais chamam de “vida lá fora” ou o “mundo que os espera”.
#AristótelesEDanteDescobremOsSegredosDoUniverso parte de uma ideia simples, amizade e descoberta do amor. Mas torna-se gigante ao se ancorar nas relações familiares. Autor homossexual sexagenário, #BenjaminAlireSaenz deixa clara a mensagem: apoie seus entes queridos com todo amor do mundo.
Família é, sem dúvida, a entidade mais importante em suas histórias já publicadas no Brasil (a outra, #AlógicaInexplicávelDaMinhaVida). E a partir de recortes quase aleatórios e objetivos, Saenz molda muito bem seus personagens, que sempre emanam uma vitalidade e um senso de descoberta fascinantes.
A relação de Ari & Dante quase chega ao piegas, mas é salvo pela delicadeza com que o autor trata cada um. Parece conhecer a fundo cada ser humano e os trata com um distanciamento respeitoso como quem sabe muito e interfere pouco. Ou seja, é crível como poucos young-adults.
O vazio do deserto do Texas é preenchido com um turbilhão de emoções, num contraste constante de alegria e tristeza, esperança e desilusão, afeto e distância. Um dos livros mais emocionantes já escritos para os jovens.
“Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz 🌌 Achingly tender. I can’t fathom how much this book would have meant to me as a teenager. #bookstagram#aristotleanddante

Book 8 of 2018. This one has come highly recommend by teachers and students. It is also the first LGBT YA book I’ve ever read. I’m curious to see how I enjoy and can relate to it. #aristotleanddante
Shout-out to Benjamin Alire Saenz for being an absolutely INCREDIBLE AUTHOR. Both of these stories feature excellent families, the most incredible writing and amazing friendships. If you haven't read them yet...you need to.

I've read a quote in Pinterest before that goes like this, "I read books coz it feels like therapy. But sometimes I think I need therapy coz I read books". And that's exactly what I need right now. A therapy. Coz this book just suddenly dropped a freaking bomb of feels at my heart a few chapters before the ending. Its fascinatingly wicked. But I cried. Dunno why. But I did.
