Tras acabar de leer este libro no sabría definir exactamente de que trata. Simplemente a veces necesitamos sumergirnos en una historia y dejarnos llevar por esta, al menos eso fue lo que decidí hacer yo leyendo este libro. A decir verdad no he encontrado una respuesta tras esta lectura, lo que si he encontrado es la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre la vida al igual que todos los múltiples temas que se tratan en este libro. Creo que cada libro tiene su momento y este fue mi momento de leerlo, por ello os invitó que conozcais la historia de estas hermanas.

Jeffrey Eugenides has such a way with painfully beautiful words, this entire book feels like a pastel, dreamlike nightmare set in suburbia at golden hour. **We wanted to let you know this book is incredibly graphic and depicts in detail the suicides of 5 young women (this is not a spoiler), please read and watch along with caution💕

I hope everyone’s Sunday is off to a good start. Time to relax and get some me time, boys and girls! 😊👍🏻 .
I love reading articles on the Internet from high-quality online magazines such as the New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Aeon, etc. I chanced upon this great essay on the Virgin Suicides on The New Yorker and took some notes of it on my Hobonichi using my cheap and reliable Platinum Preppy. This is the first time I used it for a whole spread, and I like how smooth it writes on the paper. So, I might get more colors when I visit @scribe
.ph next week. By the way, that is my normal handwriting when I write fast. Lines and curves are all over the place, because I am less in control of my hands and just let it write away. 😅😊 .
Swipe left for a pic of the stationeries used. The rest of the pics are flowers and foliage in my garden. | Have a great relaxing Sunday, everyone! 🏡🌹🌺🌻🍃🌿🌱 .

Combatteva, combatteva , ma , contro chi ? Qual era dunque il suo nemico in quel duello pugnace ? Ne aveva perso la sagoma all'orizzonte del troppo schizofrenico e folle amore , ed ora alla resa , fiacco per la sconfitta indolore eppure struggente aveva nitido il responso . Non vi erano Galli, nè tenaci Barbari , più intimo e viscerale che mai appariva il nemico , e grondava di lacrime quando finalmente intuì che lui ,se stesso , il suo io, era il verace avversario contro il quale avrebbe dovuto immantinente scagliarsi . Era truce il combattere uscendone indenni e asciutti delle chiazze paunazze e amaranto del sangue di guerra , era come osservare o essere imbelli . Piuttosto che avversare il vacuo, avversava se stesso dalle incrostazioni dei timori e dei rantolii di rammarico ed insicurezza pur con animo assai sensibile alle più pure emozioni , e tronfio finalmente vedeva condensarsi un abbozzo di trionfo in chiaroscuro , a valle del traguardo . Forse quella di John non fu la risoluzione di un assedio umorale iniziato all'alba dei suoi stessi ricordi e delle sue reminiscenze da infante , fu un passo , rivolto or ora verso l'innanzi e non destinato all'oblio, forse desiderava un cenno, o forse vanamente desiderava , eppure i suoi ceppi di legno delle valli dei grifoni gli parvero colubrine , rintocchi fiochi della sua timidezza, irruente pulsioni di sè.

Eins der Bücher, die mich seit der Jugend begleiten. Ich liebe Eugenides poetischen, sanften Schreibstil, der dieses Thema fast schon wunderschön umschreibt. Das Buch ist wie flirrende Sommerluft und Tage am Baggersee, obwohl es gleichzeitig so tragisch ist.

Gorgeous editions by @picadorbooks
❤️ I miss Housekeeping which I intend of getting as soon as possible. They're so tiny and cute that make me want to read them right now! Have you guys read these? What do you think about them?
still hanging on 'the virgin suicides' but i have to admit i prefer the movie though which is rare for me to say because mostly i like the book more than the movie ✨ and i always am much more affected by suicides in books than i expected to be // i might finish this one but other books i actually stopped reading because of its tragic // still its an enjoyable read because of its unique language • #thevirginsuicides
• i loved the whole playing each other records through the telephone thing • its romantic in some way •
My last read of 2016. I've been wanting to read this for a long time but couldn't seem to find a copy anywhere. Finally found a secondhand one through the book forums.
This is one of the strangest books I've read and I'm still figuring out how I feel about it. Sometimes the prose reads like poetry; other times like a criminal investigation. The story is creepy, haunting and tragic but most of all frustrating because at the end of the day, no one knows why the five teenage sisters decide to kill themselves. And maybe that's what bothers me the most.
Worth a read for the experience.

Whoa! Have I actually managed to post two days in a row for #bookishjuly16
Welcome to my nook... my reading nook that is. I should probably use my chair to read in for my posture's sake, but there's something that feels so luxurious about reclining on a bed.
Here are a few of our favorite covers for #bookishmarch
Carthage, Dracula, The Princess Bride, The Phantom of the Opera, The Diviners, Mistress of the Art of Death, Middlesex, and The Penelopiad.
Y fue en este periodo cuando Madeleine entendió cabalmente que el discurso del amante era de una soledad extrema. La soledad era extrema porque no era física. Era extrema porque la sentías mientras estabas en compañía de la persona que amabas. Era extrema porque estaba en tu cabeza, el mas solitario de los lugares.
MIDDLESEX by Jeffrey Euginides is one of the or the most incredible literary journies I have ever taken. A Journey through Cal nee Carliope Stephanides an intersex person entertwined with the journey of his family and countries. From conflict between Greeks and Turks in a piece of Asia Minor, to travel of a brother and sister, then man and wife when their geet rich American soil. #jeffreyeuginides
Perhaps the number one read of 2016 so far. Thank you #streetbookstore
At last. This one was looking at me from the shelves of the library for a very long time. Don't know exactly why I've waited to read it but somehow I've always felt it wasn't the right moment. Well, wow. This book suits me like a good dress the first time you put it on. It has spoken to me from the first page, talking about life, death, desperation, vitality and the brutal awareness of our solitude and strangeness. And how graciously and powerfully Eugenides writes about sexuality! Great book. A wonder. 📖📖📖📖📖📖 Finalmente. Questo libro mi guardava dalle mensole della libreria da tanto tempo. Non so esattamente perché ho aspettato tanto a leggerlo ma non mi sembrava mai il momento giusto. Beh, wow. Questo libro mi è sembrato subito mio, come quando indossi un buon vestito per la prima volta. Mi ha parlato dalla prima pagina, di vita, morte, disperazione, rinascita e della brutale consapevolezza della nostra solitudine e stranezza. E in che modo sublime e potente Eugenides scrive della sessualità!! #book #bookworm #bookstagram #booksnews #bibliophile #continuiamoaleggere #scratchbook #ilfeuilleton #reading #bookriot #goodreads #bookish #jeffreyeuginides #middlesex #mondadori
review of #TheMarriagePlot
It's not a book for EVERYONE i must say. It centers around a love triangle of 3 brilliantly smart students, Madeleine, Mitchell and Leonard.
Plot: If you're looking for fast paced and suspense plots, this is not it. It's very slow moving that I had to scan many paragraphs in order to keep going. But I TRULY enjoyed the book after the first 100 pages, no kidding.
Ending: Not what you expected, but very realistic 👌
Characters: So you have a manic depressive biologist (so interesting!), a Victorianist feminist, and a theology student who backpacks discovering Christianity. The characters are nothing short of peculiar. Also they are the same age as me, 23, and I found them relevant and non-relevant to my experiences as the same time.
Language: The thing that made me glued to this book was its beautiful language! No doubt Eugenides is such a gifted author that the lack of story plot was entirely compensated for its language and deep messages for the young in love. I loved seeing the characters maturing within that 1 year after college ended, and I'm glad they turned out the way they did 😊
