Ventisei anni, fuori sede, fuori corso. Una giovinezza passata a sfuggire ai predatori, ai bracconieri, negandosi accenti e rossetti sgargianti come insegnano le brave mamme del sud. Cadere nella tana del lupo, infine, per paura di dover tornare alle origini con la coda tra le gambe e di finire per somigliarci, a quella madre automa che lava, stira, organizza incontri combinati. L'apprendistato di Rosita presso lo studio di Ludovico Lepore, avvocato spregevole ma magnetico specializzato in diritto di famiglia, dura giusto il tempo di una prigionia, e di un romanzo ambiguo e sottile. Chi ha bisogno di chi, chi ha il coltello dalla parte del manico? Quanto costa cara l'indipendenza, in un piccolo harem della Padova bene dove la parola resilienza è blasfema e il valore di una donna, di una segretaria, si giudica dai caffè che ci serve? Gli esiti del gioco, imprevedibili: perché gli uomini si mordono la coda girando in tondo, le donne fanno.

"Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last" - Sherlock Holmes . This is probably my best looking book. It has the feel of leather with gold text. It is also a book with many of the short stories featuring Sherlock and Watson. These stories were originally published in news papers in Britain. . . . . . #book #bookcommunity #bookworm #SirArthurConnanDoyle #Shakespeare #bookporn #bookstagram #bookgeek #booklife #plants #green #books📚 #bookblog #bookgram #watson #bookclub #bookaholic #bookinstagram #booknerd #booklover

Se ho imparato una cosa dall'ALCHIMISTA, (@paulocoelho) che l'universo ci invia, segnali inequivocabili, sta a noi la capacità di capirli e tramutarli nella nostra Leggenda Personale. Non se in questo momento io abbia la maturità o gli occhi per vedere e coglierne a pieno il significato,certo è che oggi, molto per caso, mi sono imbattuta nel sito @bookblister, mettendo a posto tutti quei pezzi che cercavo di legare da ormai troppo tempo. Ma ve ne parlo meglio nel post delle 14.00 sul blog. ***La leoncina è una creazione @lamesciacrochet_ ***MATILDE***

❔What's the best short story collection you've read? 📖 Hook and Eye is a collection of twelve stories set in Singapore that allow us a glimpse into lives in the margins. In "Painting the Eye", an insurance salesman find himself becoming more empathetic towards his clients after he takes up painting and his new keen sense of observation makes him wonder if there's something more going on than meets the eye with his most recent client. . "Identity" explores the feelings of a new Singaporean, her struggles, conflicts, hopes and wants. . "Cave Man" stands out from the other stories in that it's set in a futuristic Singapore of the author's imagination where the people now live underground and everyone yearns for a chance to spend a few years on the surface. . "The Moral Support of Presence" gives us a sardonic account of what a woman's death signifies to those around her and how they react. . "The Borrowed Boy" take place on Eid or Hari Raya as it is known here. As an act of charity, Junaidah and her family pick a boy from an orphanage to accompany them on their outings on this festive day and the story that follows provide an insight into the tensions and expectations that form part of Junaidah's life. And my personal favourite, "Rich Man Country", narrates the aftermath of workplace accident and the thoughts that flow through the half delirious mind of the anonymous injured foreign construction worker as he is transported away from the scene of the incident. 📖 Thank you for sending me a copy of this book to review @ethosbooks. #maybookstagram18 - lyrical or simple prose #mayinbooks18 - book written by a POC #grimdragon - short stories/anthologies #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookrecommendation #reviewedbybliss #bookblog #sglit #shortstories #asianliterature #booksandnature #readingtime #ilovereading #becauseofreading #unitedbookstagram #bookstagrammersunite #libraryofinstagram #booksofinstagram #libraryofbookstagram #met_createchange #whatareyoureadingsg #readingnationsg #idratherbereading #culturetripbooks #instabookclub #bookstagramit #natureinthewrittenword #bookcommunity #totalbooknerd

« Louise ? Quelle chance vous avez d’être tombés sur elle. Elle a été comme une seconde mère pour mes garçons. Ça a été un vrai crève -cœur quand nous avons dû nous en séparer. Pour tout vous dire,à l’époque,j’ai même songé à faire un troisième enfant pour pouvoir la garder. » Lorsque Myriam décide malgré les réticences de son mari de reprendre son activité au sein d’un cabinet d’avocats, le couple se met à la recherche d’une nounou. Après un casting sévère,ils engagent Louise et sont conquis par son aisance avec Mila et Adam, et par le soin bientôt indispensable qu’elle apporte à leur foyer, laissant progressivement s’installer le piège de la dépendance mutuelle. Leïla Slimani. Chanson douce . Quel livre !!! A lire si ce n’est déjà fait. #chansondouce #leïlaslimani #editionfolio #instalivre #bookstagram #bookcommunity #lireenfolio

Finished #GristMillRoad by #ChristopherJYates 📚 this book has been on my TBR for ages 🤓🤓 I was super excited when I got it but unfortunately it really didn't work for me. I didn't like any of the characters and I found it really boring. I also HATED the writing style - dialogue quotation marks are a must have for me. I don't know why some authors don't use them but it really puts me off 👀 I've read a lot of reviews saying that this book was too gruesome or disturbing but for me it really lacked that shock quality that I love, I really didn't find this book shocking, upsetting or gory in any way (not sure what that says about me 🙈). I'm also really, really disappointed by the ending. I feel there are so many questions left unanswered. . On the plus side, I really love the cover!! 😍🖤 . . . #bookstagram #instabook #instaread #bookworm #nowreading #crimefiction #currentlyreading #readcrimefiction #newread #crimenovel #bookblogger #igbooks #bookaddict #ctimebooks #bookish #bookcommunity #igreads #bookphotography
