"A melancolia é impossível de combater porque, a partir do momento em que nos aventuramos no mundo, teremos sempre saudades de tudo. De tudo. Do que fizemos e do que não fizemos, de quem se cruzou no nosso caminho e de quem jamais conseguiremos encontrar. Cuidar das plantas no nosso jardim é prolongar a existência a criaturas que hão-de morrer quando nos esquecermos delas; é querer fazer com que o amor dure mais tempo para, quando nos virmos livres desta vida de uma vez por todas, partirmos de coração a transbordar de tudo o que deixamos para trás."
- João Tordo, 🇵🇹 .
. Ah! Livro lindo demais! Contudo, devo considerar que tal palavra deriva do Latim melancholia e do Grego melankholia, “tristeza”. ( literalmente, queria dizer “bile negra”, pois melané queria dizer “negro” e kholé, “bile”)
🤔😅....e cá estou a transbordar alegria, mergulhada em saudades .

Here’s a non superhero-y comic for folks interested in comics but turned off by “superheroes” To be fair to superheroes there are A LOT of titles that have nothing to do with the movies that are out, there are side heroes that are great, and a lot of indie writers at say Image also write for the big two (DC & Marvel) I mean superheroes comics are essentially mash ups of fantasy and sci-fi! There are different tones and characters for everyone! *steps off soapbox* However, it did take me a year of reading comics to seek out superhero titles on my own! I still really enjoy indie comics that are not related to DC or Marvel. But can we read more than Saga, Paper Girls, and Locke & Key? Yes I think we can!! There are so many amazing writers, artists, and colorists to check out! I definitely read certain comics just because my favorite writer is on the book. Anyways I’ve had my eye on this Chilling Adventures of Sabrina for awhile and had to get it after seeing @ginandcomics rave about it! (Also you should totally follow her!) Spooky Sabrina the Teenage Witch, yes please!!! 🧙🏻♀️ #comics#comicbooks#comicbooklover#comicbookfan#chillingadventuresofsabrina#archiecomics#bookish#bookstagram#coverlove#bookworm#bibliophile#bookaholic#booknerd#readerlife#readmorecomics

I've heard so much about these books 😊 My mom is reading A Man Called Ove and im reading Beartown. I just started it last night and I'm loving the small town feel and character profiles. Have you read either of these?
I'm about to step into my exam! Ick I'm sooooo nervous I had anxiety all night!! Wish me luck🤗
After this I'm grabbing coffee and a book!! (ok maybe some rhum as well haha 😂) I wanna finish Sweet Little Lies by Caz Frear today so I can start The Woman In The Window by A.J Finn!
What's your current read? 👇

Qui dit vacances dit lectures ! 📚 Et je ne sais pas vous mais ce n’est vraiment pas évident de choisir quel livre prendre et lire pendant ces vacances 🤔 C’est déjà assez dur pour moi de respecter ma PAL du mois donc imaginez mon problème quand il faut choisir quelques livres à glisser dans ma valise. 📚
J’ai pris trois livres avec moi et si j’arrive à tout lire pendant cette semaine de vacances ( ce qui n’est pas forcément gagner vu la tonne de choses que je dois faire pour l’université), je me trouverai sûrement une autre lecture ☺️📖
Nouvelle photo de moi et je ne suis pas seule, mon chat Nymerion s’invite sur la photo. 🐈
Et vous, associez vous les vacances avec la lecture ? Des livres en particulier prévu pendant vos vacances ? 📚
My book haul from @book.chor. And they were sweet enough to send me personal flowery note and bookmarks.
I am eagerly waiting to start with The Hundred year old Man. But before that doing a readalong with @shalakasdesigns and @pagesinsidemyhead for The The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
I guess I will finish these books before those still lying in my tbr. Who knows 🤷🏻♀️
Happy Galentine’s Day!! Because I am a firm believer in all things Leslie Knope 😉
I am also a firm believer in strong female friendships! I am so lucky to know the most amazing ladies because of bookstagram!! I have tagged a bunch of the people who make my bookstagram experience so much brighter! I hope you’ll join in the love and tag some of your bookish besties too 🤗
I have to say I am especially grateful for my #repsquad 😍 Those girls are always there for me and they make everything about my life 1000 times better!
After a lot of joking about us needing a candle, @bibliotrix.lestrange MADE IT HAPPEN and sent me this candle for Christmas 😭😭 She is amazing and I love her so, so much!
Bookish friendships, in my experience, are some of the best friendships. I am incredibly grateful to know you all!!

Happy Saturday my friends! Do you like to collect special editions of books?
I definitely do for my favorite authors! Or if I like a certain cover more than the original I will buy that one instead.
One of my forever favorites is the @owlcrate edition of Heartless! It was their very first exclusive cover and although I may be biased because it is Marissa... I still think it is the best they have ever done!
My February crate is out for delivery and I am doing my happy dance because I cannot wait to see what the exclusive cover looks like for the month!! Plus I am really excited for the book I think it is 😬
Alright I am off to run some errands and get some chores checked off my to do list so I can dedicate the rest of my day to reading 💁🏻♀️ Have a great day guys!

Have you had a final book in a series not live up to your expectations?
I have to admit that Immortal Reign wasn’t quite what I was hoping it would be... It certainly wasn’t a bad ending or a bad book. I just didn’t love it as much as I anticipated I would. Which was disappointing considering how excited I was! Maybe my expectations were just too high.
I liked the actual ending of the book. But the lead up didn’t feel as seamless as I would have liked. The plot was a bit choppy at times. And after all the drama and build up throughout the previous books, the resolution was a bit too simple for my tastes.
I guess you can’t love them all 🤷🏻♀️ But I wanted to 😭😭

Oh look, Brittany is once again going to talk about how she met Pierce Brown...
I can’t help it guys 😂😂 It is a really good story 🤷🏻♀️ Pierce was so genuinely nice (to look at 😏) I kid, I kid 🤣 He was honestly super genuine and kind and gracious. He was there a very long time but he spent time talking with every single person who came through the line! I can’t even begin to imagine how exhausting that would be. 😳😳
But also, he definitely was nice to look at too. Nothing wrong with taking a moment to appreciate that 😉
I also quite enjoy looking at these AMAZING bookmarks designed by @merwildandco from the @illumicrate Howler box (I am going for the gold medal in flawless transitions 😏😏) The next special edition box is going to be for A Court of Frost and Starlight. Just think about how epic that is going to be!! Make sure you are on the @illumicrate email list so you get the first notice when preorders open!
