Thank you so much to @bloomsburypublishing for sending along a copy of the gorge
Thank you so much to @bloomsburypublishing for sending along a copy of the gorgeous book, The Queen’s Embroiderer by Joan DeJean! It sounds like such a fantastic historical look at fashion and love in 18th century France. ✨ Synopsis: Paris, 1719. The stock market is surging and the world's first millionaires are buying everything in sight. Against this backdrop, two families, the Magoulets and the Chevrots, rose to prominence only to plummet in the first stock market crash. One family built its name on the burgeoning financial industry, the other as master embroiderers for Queen Marie-Therese and her husband, King Louis XIV. Both patriarchs were ruthless money-mongers, determined to strike it rich by arranging marriages for their children. . But in a Shakespearean twist, two of their children fell in love. To remain together, Louise Magoulet and Louis Chevrot fought their fathers' rage and abuse. A real-life heroine, Louise took on Magoulet, Chevrot, the police, an army regiment, and the French Indies Company to stay with the man she loved. . Following these families from 1600 until the Revolution of 1789, Joan DeJean recreates the larger-than-life personalities of Versailles, where displaying wealth was a power game; the sordid cells of the Bastille; the Louisiana territory, where Frenchwomen were forcibly sent to marry colonists; and the legendary "Wall Street of Paris," Rue Quincampoix, a world of high finance uncannily similar to what we know now. The Queen's Embroiderer is both a star-crossed love story in the most beautiful city in the world and a cautionary tale of greed and the dangerous dream of windfall profits. And every bit of it is true. . . #nonfiction#nonfictionbooks#thequeensembroiderer#joandejean#bloomsbury#bloomsburypublishing#historicalnonfiction#historybooks#frenchhistory#bookishconnoisseur#bookgram#readergram#booksofinstagram#bibliophile#readersofig#bookishflatlay#kimmersbooks#historicalbooks

I am not sure if I have ever mentioned this here (or on the blog), but over the past several months now, I have found myself veering more and more towards non-fiction, more specifically towards books on productivity & time-management, even though I’ve been reading other sub-genres as well. And this is new for me, because while I have always read non-fiction, it has typically constituted a relatively small part of my reading, and right now it’s almost at 50% (if not more). Today (on the blog) I am reviewing 3 of the many books I read on productivity and time-management. If you have recommendations to add, or want to share your thoughts on them, I'd love to hear it. . **Direct link in the Bio📎** . Or you can pin this for later📌 https://bit.ly/2MPSqW1

Finished reading "Well That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs And Mistakes of an Accide
Finished reading "Well That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs And Mistakes of an Accidental Activist" I've been following @chescaleigh since her viral video "Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls" in 2012 so reading had me going 'ooh yea I do remember that!' But alot of 'oh wow...I see now.' This a painfully honest and hilarious book self-reflection, vulnerability and growth. I read this whole book in her voice. Every word. Its so hard to capture your sound from inner outside and Fran made it lool effortless. And from her 1st book! Highly recommend this. Love adding this to my growing list of Black authors 💙💚💛❤ #SummerReading#WTEQ#NonFiction#AutoBiography#Memoir#BlackWriters#BlackAuthors

I generally avoid anthologies because I find them to be inconsistent and end up disliking a bunch of the essays. Not That Bad, however, was pretty solid. There were a couple writers that I didn't love, but all of the essays based on personal experience were really powerful. There were several LGBTQ+ and POC voices represented, whish I think is vital in a collection of this nature. This anthology obvious delved into some very heavy subject matter, but I felt like the short chapters and variety of essays kept it from becoming too much for me to handle. I definitely had to space out the essays and if you do have any sexual assault related triggers, this is not a collection you should pick up. All in all, this is a powerful collection with a variety of perspectives that is definitely worth picking up. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ . . . . . . . #bookreview#notthatbad#roxanegay#instaread#reader#read#igreads#reads#whatimreading#reads#nonfiction#essaycollection

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I adored this book of essays on the reading life, by a woman I deeply admire and whose work I confidently support. I've been a fan of What Should I Read Next? since it launched, and a reader of Modern Mrs. Darcy for even longer. Anne's voice and style feel like a dear friend, and this book highlights the best of what she offers the world. I have already requested our library order copies of this book and passed it along to my fellow librarians to enjoy! Each essay resonated with me in some way, and I underlined at least one quote per chapter. My favorite essay was I'm Begging You to Break My Heart about the emotional power of a read that connects with you on a soul level. Finished books that ellicit big emotions is a favorite reading style of mine. I loved hearing about her relationship with her local library, and the sweet house she owned right next door. I connected strongly when she mentioned memories and places tied to books, because books are one of the ways I can easily organize my life and the moves I made with the fictional friends who kept me company each time I was "the new kid." I genuinely am delighted by this sweet short book and will encourage every friend, family member and acquaintance to read this book and find the essay they most connect with. I am a member of the launch team for this book, and did receive a free copy of the book in exchange for my review and promotion. #idratherbereading#WSIRN#whatshouldireadnext#modernmrsdarcy#nonfiction#currentlyreading#readinglately#bookreview

I haven’t read a book so eloquently written or tragically relevant in a long time. Aside from being a writer, it is both my joy and my privilege to have been a High School English teacher for the last decade. It’s a calling I once treated flippantly, and now, sacredly. I have a list of over 100 students who will walk through the doors of my classroom and it is one of the greatest responsibilities of my life to teach them the depth and breadth of literary genius outside of the canon of books penned by white men. This work matters. Because it’s beautiful. Because it’s encompassing. Because, of all things, it is true. #teacherlife#writer#englishteacher#wocauthors#fiction#nonfiction#literature

Library on Wheels: Mary Lemist Titcomb and America’s First Bookmobile by Sharlee
Library on Wheels: Mary Lemist Titcomb and America’s First Bookmobile by Sharlee Glenn ~ I know I saw this book first here on Instagram, but I can’t remember from who. But this piece of history speaks deeply to me. Libraries are my life blood. I have worked in libraries, volunteered in libraries, and presently spend so much time in libraries that the librarians recognize me and the boys (😂). Someday I hope to work in them again. Without a doubt, I would not be the person I am today without libraries. And so learning about this amazing woman who worked tirelessly to make books accessible to so many people touches my heart. She is quoted as saying, “The book goes to the man. We do not wait for the man to come to the book.” The book is full of pictures and historical documents - which I love! But yet at the same time the history is easily explained and accessible to kids. I only thought it fitting that I take a picture of this book with my library card, there in the corner, that allows me so much access to worlds and history and things unknown. I am excited for my 6 year old to get his very first library card in just a few weeks. #kidsbook#readingwithkids#kidlit#nonfiction#childrensbooks

“Talk the talk, wall the walk - but also -  wear the jacket...As each day passes
“Talk the talk, wall the walk - but also - wear the jacket...As each day passes I am having to let go of so many things that I love in order to invest a majority of my energy into creating what I truly believe in. In the end, everything I do is connected anyway, but somehow it still feels like total abandonment and neglect. With every word that’s written, every thought considered and every page completed, I feel more and more anxious to reach the end result and I constantly have to remind myself that getting there takes me being right here, right now, moving the pen, typing the words and rendering the imagination through these means. It’s a constant cycle of ‘progressing and lapsing’ until I get there, and that’s part of the charm in this path; because that struggle to maintain consistency is a form of personal growth which is rewarding in and of itself and is huge part of the conclusion. The chaos in my mind is the liveliness of my reality... journey with me...” -Yours Truly, -CÆROL K.

Current Read - How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie “It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” “Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”

Make Trouble has been my favorite book of the summer! This book is packed with inspiring quotes, so I pulled out some of my faves! Read it all or just one bullet! . “After all, if it was easy, someone else would be doing it.” This is my new mantra, and I’ve been saying (yelling) it to my friends and colleagues all week! Even Cecile Richards has tough days, but that’s a sign that you’re fighting the good fight and putting in work. &Don’t forget it! 💪🏽 . “If there’s one common theme that runs throughout my life, it’s strong kick-ass women.” What a lucky lady! If you haven’t felt as lucky to be surrounded by amazing women, be that woman to someone else. 👯‍♀️ . “Feminist is not a passive label; it means speaking out and standing up for women everywhere, and also for yourself.” Need I say more? 👌🏽 . Last but not least, I think Cecile and Lauren make a great writing duo, and I hope they write another book soon! 5/5⭐️ . . . . . #bookstagram#tbr#nonfiction#readstagram#madison#madisonwi#maketrouble#igreads#books#bookish#reading#instabooks#booksofinstagram#bookreview#quotes#bookquotes#goingbythebook

I love reading, a lot ❤ and consequently I love books so much that I can spend more time inside of a bookstore that you can imagine, even if I dont end up buying anything 📖 I used to run a literature blog when I was 17 years old. I looove fiction books in the Young Adult romantic and drama genres, but lately I've been getting obsessed with non-fiction books. I like to read about minimalism, decluttering, mindfulness, etc. ✨ As I love books I thought about creating a Favorite books page on my website 😊 I put there my fiction and non-fiction favs and I will update it every time I read one I love.

I read this book solely based on #bookstagram recommendations and am not disappointed! A good mix of positivity and tough love written in a very authentic manner; I found myself relating to so much of what Hollis shared even though I had never heard of her before. She addresses everything from running a successful company to raising four kiddos to handling public criticism to finding ways to persevere through tragedy - and then some. I shared a line from the book that really struck me in my Instagram stories today - let me know if it speaks to you, too! . Have you read Girl, Wash Your Face?

(cont'd-please read old to new sorry 😐) ----- Two hours after the initial call, which usually went as such: "Hey, it's Jim." "How many you need?" "I have $200.00" "Ok. Be there in twenty." Back to the book. After reading the same line ten times, I understood I wouldn't be able to relax while I waited. It was the same drill, car drives past, jump up to check, not him, sinking heart, slump back onto the chair and pray, yes pray, that he would show up in the time given. See, this was all a game one quickly learned to play. I would call after one hour and say, "Hey, it's me, just making sure you didn't forget about me". The dealer would promise that after a couple stops he would be there. I always got along with my dealers. Many were nice guys who had no option as they saw it but to sell drugs. Many would enjoy sitting with me for a bit and chat about anything other than drugs, since I understood they had vultures hovering around them, and people were nice to them so to keep in good relations. I did that too. Lots of manipulation. Two hours later, which felt much longer, there came a knock on my door. I jumped up and was opening the door faster than I'd moved since the last time I waited. My heart, it had this anxious wave until I flung the door open and welcomed him inside. Sometimes the dealers were busy and in a rush. No time for pleasantries. "How many?" "Ahh, four reds please" "I'll do 45 a pill. 180." The exchange is made. He can't see that my black sleep wear is soaked. I would have paid much more, if there were no other option, and if it is available NOW." I said good bye and pressed play. I remember that mixed CD of mp3s. I couldn't listen to those songs for many years after I had kicked. 'Gimmie Shelter came on as I crushed the small hard and pure beads into a fine powder. I scooped the 30 mgs into 100 cc of water, simmered, added the cotton , and sucked the medicine into the syringe. Tap tap tap. Squeeze out the access air. Tie the tourniquet. Insert needle. I hear the click as it enters my hardened vein. I remove the tie. I flag it, the syringe and the blood swirls into the clear medicine. Jim never missed.

This is one heck of a #womancrushwednesday with #tagswithevilqueenreads . When I'm not listening to audiobooks, I'm listening to these two gorgeous ladies, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. They are the hosts for My Favorite Murder, a podcast featured on Spotify that I just can't get enough of. They tell all sorts of true crime stories in such a strange and quirky manner. They remind me a bit of Rebecca and Liberty who do the All The Books podcast (also on Spotify). If you enjoy them, I highly suggest giving My Favorite Murder a listen or vice versa if you like My Favorite Murder, give All The Books a listen. 🖤 They also just announced their new book is coming out in May next year! Stay tuned for the release. I'm definitely getting my own copy. 🖤 #allthebooks#rebeccaschinsky#myfavoritemurder#podcast#podcastlove#podcastaddict#podcasthost#georgiahardstark#karenkilgariff#spotifypodcast#murder#truecrime#horror#truecrimecommunity#truecrimepodcast#classiccrime#nonfiction#murdermystery#creepygirls#mysterysolved#bookchallenge#bookpodcast#gorewhore#horrornerd#libertyhardy#bookriot#murderandmayhem

Just finished #NoHero by #MarkOwen. He wrote #NoEasyDay (which I read a few months back) about the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s complex - which he was a part of. No Hero is a recount of a bunch of different black-ops missions and BUDS (the basic training for Navy Seals). I love anything covert or military - this was no exception.

I have been busy figuring how to behave like a normal young girl which my mother often refers in our recent communications . I am in search of 'my well mannered beautiful child' i was when I was a kid. Mother refers to this phrase every now and then nowadays and I have become speechless to her deep memory which spurts out of her mouth and she starts bugging us how life was back in those times 🌱 Maybe being 60 is what is said to unwind the memories to leave for younger generation.
