Segundo o relatório do Fundo de População das Nações Unidas de 2011, as mulheres realizam 66% do trabalho no mundo, mas são remuneradas com somente 10% da renda e são donas de APENAS 1% das propriedades existentes. A quem depende financeiramente do outro, na maior parte dos casos, só resta acatar, obedecer, se submeter. Nesse sentido, a ONU Mulheres tem um lema muito legal: IGUALDADE SIGNIFICA NEGÓCIOS. Que esta semana traga trabalho e renovação do impulso criativo e criador a todas as mulheres do mundo! Na foto, Carolina Maria de Jesus, escritora inspirada e mulher mais que inspiradora. #iluminuraacessivel Carolina Maria de Jesus, com um lenço cobrindo sua cabeça, em frente a simples casebres de madeira.
Hier noch eine weitere Errungenschaft von der Leipziger Buchmesse 😍
Auf dieses Buch hab ich schon eine halbe Ewigkeit gewartet,aber für den Kauf extra bis zur Messe gewartet
Ich finde es etwas schade das diese Ausgabe nur in Softcover bzw. broschiert erhältlich ist 🙀
Handlung: Scarlett Dragna fürchtet sich vor ihrem Vater, dem grausamen Governor der Insel Trisda. Sie träumt davon, ihrem Dasein zu entfliehen und Caraval zu besuchen, wo ein verzaubertes Spiel stattfindet. Doch ihr Wunsch erscheint unerreichbar – bis Scarlett von ihrer Schwester Donatella und dem geheimnisvollen Julian entführt wird, die ihr den Eintritt zu Caraval ermöglichen. Aber ist Caraval wirklich das, was Scarlett sich erhofft hat? Sobald das Spiel beginnt, kommen Scarlett Zweifel. Räume verändern auf magische Weise ihre Größe, Brücken führen plötzlich an andere Orte und verborgene Falltüren zeigen Scarlett den Weg in finstere Tunnel, in denen Realität und Zauber nicht mehr voneinander zu unterscheiden sind. Und als ihre Schwester verschwindet, muss Scarlett feststellen, dass sich ein furchtbares Geheimnis hinter Caraval verbirgt ...
Würde gerne sofort beginnen, aber ich muss erstmal Secret Fire zu Ende lesen 😁
"Out of the corner of her eye she thought she saw Jace shoot her a look of white rage - but when she glanced at him, he looked as he always did: easy, confident, slightly bored.
'In future, Clarissa,' he said, 'it might be wise to mention that you already have a man in your bed, to avoid such tedious situations.'
'You invited him into bed?' Simon demanded, looking shaken.
'Ridiculous, isn't it?' said Jace. 'We would never have all fit.'
'I didn't invite him into bed,' Clary snapped. 'We were just kissing.'
'Just kissing?' Jace's tone mocked her with its false hurt. 'How swiftly you dismiss our love.' "
Happy 10th anniversary to City of Bones! I felt like I had to show some love to this beautiful book today. 😍 This is one of my absolute FAVORITE series'! If you couldn't already tell, I'm kinda obsessed with The Shadow World & this is what started it for me. I was a little later in the game with these, I had tried reading them awhile back & I ended up putting the first book down (can't really remember why?) but last year I picked it back up while I was in a slump & completely fell in love. This series introduced me to one of my favorite authors & a PHENOMENAL world. Everything about these are perfect to me. I'm currently reading TID & loving it even more. ♡
Another quiet masterpiece and #booksforchange .
Mary has spent thirty- five years looking after her father, Canon Jocelyn and her late invalid sister.
They reside in the decaying Dedmayne Rectory which it self symbolises all that is outmoded - including values and thought processes.
Into this world enters Robert Herbert and Mary's life will never be the same again... F.M.Mayor was born in 1872 into a clerical household that respected and encouraged women's education. Mayor read History at Newnham College, Cambridge. She wanted to purse acting but was unsuccessful in the pursuit of it, owing to ill -health. Mayor was no stranger to unfulfilled love - her fiancé died in India from typhoid fever in 1903. Her dreams of a happy future were dashed. She then quietly passed her life till her death in 1931.
To quote Susan Hill, 'This lost work of genius...is elegant and flexible, most fluently expressing every shade of human emotion.' Thanks @viragopress for publishing this gem of a book.
song of the night: don't forget about me // cloves 🎶 slight theme change in the next couple of days 📷 hope you all had as lovely a day as you are 🌹

Steinbeck's letter to his son in love, reposted on The Atlantic this morning. Enjoy. .
. "First -- if you are in love -- that's a good thing -- that's about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don't let anyone make it small or light to you.
Second -- There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you -- of kindness and consideration and respect -- not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had.
Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.
The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.
If you love someone -- there is no possible harm in saying so -- only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.
Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.
It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another -- but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.
Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I'm glad you have it.
And don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens -- The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away. .
"I've always thought the best relationships are those that are as happy and content in silence as they are in action"
I've always had this thought on relationships.
When reading this book few years ago and I felt a strong connection to Isla, it felt like her thoughts were my own.
