#outlander@outlander_starz I was indeed jealous; an emotion I hadn’t felt for some years, and was appalled to feel now...
You are an idiot, I told myself savagely. What is the matter with you? I tried to relax, breathing deeply through my nose, eyes closed.
Part of it was Willie, of course. Jamie was very careful, but I had seen his expression when he looked at the boy in unguarded moments. His whole body was suffused with shy joy, pride mingled with diffidence; and it smote me to the heart to see it.
He would never look at Brianna, his firstborn, that way. Would never see her at all. That was hardly his fault—and yet it seemed so unfair. At the same time, I could scarcely begrudge him his joy in his son—and didn’t, I told myself firmly. #drumsofautumn#dianagabaldon#dianagabaldonbooks#jamiefraser#willie#bookquotes#outlanderstarz#outlanderseason4#samheughan
“He is dog. His life is ocean, stick, ball, sand, grass, ride in the truck, sleep by the bed, look deep into the eyes of the humans, lure them outdoors, greet them with a burst of joy when they come home, love them. Fill this brief life with more.” #JacquelineSheehan, Lost & Found
This is one of those books that’s been in my #tbr forever. I pulled it out for a blogging friend’s challenge and finally got it read. Doesn’t it look sweet? It is but it’s also cloaked in this sadness that it just couldn’t shake. It was a good read and I’m giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s but it wasn’t quite what I was expecting.

Do you have any happy go lucky puppy books to recommend? The dog MUST NOT die however. I like to believe my fictional doggies lives are eternal. This one was full of grief but at least the dog survives 😅 .

“But in the end, it comes down to a matter of respect, and the simplest way that respect is communicated is through tone of voice, and the most corrosive tone of voice that [we] can assume is a dominant tone.” Recently finished Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Blink, and it is full of insightful nuggets like this one. It’s so easy for me to snap at someone I love. I’m learning to be more respectful and understanding, especially with the hubs.

🇬🇧The book every little girl should read. Every woman, every mom. And also a book that all boys should read, too. To understand that gender is not something that defines you, it’s not something that makes you “less”. You can be a man and love writing or cooking or dancing. You can be a woman and climb mountains or invent the first computer. You can identify as male or female or anything in between, and that should not prevent you from going after what you dream and fight for what you believe. There is nothing in the world that is gender specific, only people forgetting that we are all human beings🙋🏻♀️
Beautiful book, beautiful illustrations. Go read it ❤️
🇮🇹Il libro che tutte le bambine dovrebbero leggere. Le donne, le mamme. Ma il libro che anche tutti i bambini dovrebbero leggere, per capire che il sesso di una persona non è qualcosa che ti definisce in negativo, che ti rende “inferiore” in qualche modo. Puoi essere un maschio e amare cose come cucinare, scrivere o danzare. E puoi essere una femmina e scalare montagne o inventare il primo computer. Poi identificarti come uomo, donna, qualsiasi cosa tu voglia, e questo non deve impedirti di inseguire i tuoi sogni e combattere per quello in cui credi. Non c’è nulla al mondo che sia specifico al sesso di qualcuno, ci sono solo persone che si dimenticano facilmente che siamo tutti esseri umani🙋🏻♀️
Bellissimo libro, bellissime illustrazioni. Leggetelo!❤️
„Just because someone hurts you doesn't mean you can simply stop loving them. It's not a person's actions that hurt the most. It's the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.“
- Colleen Hoover, It Ends with Us
Eine Geschichte, die wirklich unter die Haut geht. Gerade, als ich dieses Zitat rausgesucht habe, habe ich schon wieder Gänsehaut bekommen und ein bisschen feuchte Augen.
Ich habe dieses Buch verschlungen!
Lily ist eine wahnsinnig sympathische und auch authentische Protagonistin, auch Ryle ist jemand in den man sich wahrlich verlieben könnte.
Es geht in diesem Buch nicht nur um Lilys Leben im Hier und jetzt, sondern auch um ihre Vergangenheit, die auf ganz fantastische Art und Weise nacherzählt wird.
Es handelt sich wirklich um eine wahnsinnig emotionale und ergreifende Geschichte, ein so wichtiges Thema.
Colleen Hoover hat es geschafft, mich das fühlen zu lassen, was Lily gefühlt hat.
Ich habe gelacht, besonders durch Allysa und Marshall, ich habe Herzklopfen bekommen und am Ende sogar Tränen vergossen (was wirklich sehr selten vorkommt).
Nach wie vor fehlen mir noch ein wenig die Worte, besonders auch wegen des Nachwortes.
Ich kann dieses Buch wirklich nur empfehlen, wenn ihr mit schwierigen Themen in Büchern umgehen könnt.
Mir hat es tatsächlich sogar ein Stück weit geholfen, gewisse Verhaltensweisen zu „verstehen“, da ich beruflich ebenfalls täglich mit solchen Themen konfrontiert werde.
Ich werde dieses Buch definitiv noch einmal lesen! 💕
ONE MORE DAY!! Marriage is tough, but what would you do if your failing marriage was splashed across the tabloids – manufactured headlines for mass consumption?
Matthew & Tinley's emotional story arrives February 22nd!
⋆✰ ⋆About the Book⋆✰ ⋆
I married the man of every woman’s dreams.
My husband is the leading man in their filthy fantasies. I know because they’ve told me.
Matthew Barber is Tinsel Town’s most sought-after movie star and I’m the girl next door. Tinley Atkinson, the former child star with an Ivy League education, and the daughter of a deceased Broadway legend.
Three short years later, it’s all crashing down.
We were the quintessential celebrity couple—Mattley, Hollywood’s Heartthrob and America’s Sweetheart.
We fell in love, and the whole world watched as our fairytale romance unfolded between the pages of glossy magazine spreads and candid moments splashed online.
The public is fascinated with the rumors swirling around us—I’m the jilted wife and he’s the no-good cheater. I’m infertile and years of drug abuse is to blame. He wants kids and I would rather have a career.
He’s the love of my life.
What am I going to do about that?
Marriage is tough and it’s even tougher in Hollywood, I’m ready to fight . . .

Can you name the book on the mug?
#myhomeschoolinglife is just getting underway. The child is working on a computer project while I enjoy my kale and spinach smoothie in my Graeme mug and look over the chemistry lesson. Guess you could say Graeme and I have some chemistry going on. LOL The quote 'round the bottom of my mug says "constitutionally incapable of not saying something shocking" and the print above is the passage from the book which contains that quote.
The mug is available through my Society6.com/bonnylasscreatives store. :) #society6#bookishmug#bookquotes
Die Grundlage der Scham ist nicht irgend ein persönlicher Fehler, sondern die Schande, die Erniedrigung, die wir dabei empfinden, daß wir sein müssen, was wir sind, ohne daß wir es uns so ausgesucht haben, und es ist das unerträgliche Gefühl, daß diese Erniedrigung von überall zu sehen ist. #milankundera#dieunsterblichkeit#bookquotes#nurse#nurselife
