"Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies." 🌹🌹🌹 I just started my re-reading of this series with @tales_will_travel , and can FINALLY say I own them all. Haha! I enjoy that they reprinted the covers and made them more uniform than they were. I just finished the first book and I forgot about all the typos in there! Not just grammar in general, but incorrect words were slipped in here and there. Wow... but overall super excited to keep reading, the first book was pretty easy to get through, let's see how the rest go! 🌹 🌹 🌹 #vampireacademy#vampires#highschool#reread#buddyread#bestfriendforever#ya#shelfie#currentlyreading
Can never go wrong with this book, especially in this setting 👌🏻🏝🌞🌊|| 📷: @bridgetmolloy_ #bita#booksintheair#allthelightwecannotsee "Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge. Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” ( San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” ( Los Angeles Times)."
"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours." - Alan Bennett
"She was lost in that deep and certain sense that there was nothing beyond her own experience. As if there were only one way things could go, the years leading you down a corridor to the room where your inevitable self waited - embryonic, ready to be released." ❣️
