I’m just gonna get right to it: I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. Despite the intriguing plot and Chloe Benjamin’s writing chops, I think there was just so much hype surrounding this book that my expectations were unrealistic (i.e. I expected this to be one of the best books I’d ever read, and although it IS a good book, it doesn’t make my list of all-time favorites). The story begins in 1960s New York City with four young siblings on their summer vacation, all of them essentially bored. One day, they overhear rumors about a fortune teller who can foresee the day of their death, and so with nothing better to do and a desire for reckless adventure, they set off to meet her, inevitably changing their lives forever. ✨ .
.
The story is told through the different perspectives of the four siblings, and it focuses on how each of them decides to pursue their lives while bearing the knowledge of the day they will die. It’s a really interesting premise, but ultimately, I think one of the reasons I wasn’t crazy about this book is because I genuinely disliked all four of the main characters 🙈 (but maybe that was the point 🤷‍♀️). They were all very self-absorbed, and I just couldn’t find it in me to care about them. On a more positive note, I think the novel poses some interesting questions about fate vs. free will that are worth talking about. I know a lot of people enjoyed this book, so if you think it sounds up your alley then definitely give it a shot and don’t let my review discourage you from reading it!.

Nada melhor do que aproveitar um bom lugar para ler acompanhada da minha querida  Jane Austen. Vocês sabem que eu sou apaixonada não só pelos livros da Jane, mas também pela pessoa que ela foi.
Mas e você, o que acha dessa autora? Já leu algum livro dela? 💙.

~ DAY 50 ~ KonMari Books ~ .
📚 
JOYWORK: think of how you like to display your spark joy books. The KonMari Method™️ does not specify to colour code them, this is just an assumption most people have since clothes are colour coded. It does look pretty but maybe there’s another way that works better for you. I know librarians who need to have their books sorted alphabetically and by genre. So have a think now what makes most sense to you and get ready to organize them all accordingly as soon as you’ve completed your joycheck.
🌈 
What Marie Kondo does write in her second book, Spark Joy, is that she has her clients store their books in a bookcase or on a set of shelves placed OUT of sight in the wardrobe, in a storage room or in a cupboard. And though you’d normally keep all of one category together, for books it’s ok to store them in separate places, where it makes most sense, ie: cookbooks in the kitchen. .
📖 
When I post a photo that belongs to someone else I ask them for permission first - sweet Emily from @sweetbookobsession said yes to sharing her photo under one condition: that I don’t say anything negative about the number of books she owns 😂 She said she could never whittle it down to just 30 (this is the number of books that Marie Kondo says she has). They all spark joy.😍 I let her in in a little secret: I myself have much more than 30 books and they too all spark joy. That’s really all that matters!
✨.

“Sometimes life can pull a lot out of you... Just squeeze you dry. And if you don't have a way to get back whatever's good and precious to you, it's like losing your soul.
