a couple hours ago i told my roommate 4+ stories of my life from 2010-2014 that usually make me choke. i taught myself how to unzip my lips and untie my hands from behind my back. there’s one story i still need to get comfortable with speaking about, but it’s hard when tears prevent words from pouring out of my mouth. i watched my father wither away because of chemotherapy and thrust me into a world of psychotherapy. those of you who saw me choke up when i tried to read a poem about my father from colossal heart’s lion section at last year’s book launch, i’m going to talk about what I went through for real this time at the book signing on sept. 29. just be my strength cause i’m gonna beat my face and don’t wanna mess up my makeup. :) #colossalheartedge

One decision I’ve made about writing ✍️ publicly is to simply be consistent. And now you know the driving force — a woman who wrote me a 1-2 page letter every day, for 18 years. In Afghanistan 🇦🇫, they arrived in batches, like flocks of doves 🕊. Initially, fellow pilots wondered who my superwoman of a girlfriend or pen pal was. They learned. I’ll direct special attention for this post to female writers and artists pushing through creative or societal barriers. Share and repost if this story could inspire someone you know. #femalewriters #femaleartists #femaleauthors #womenauthors #womenartists #womenwriters #womenwritersofinstagram #femaleartist #ladyartists #womenwhowrite #womenwhowritepoetry #femaledirector #femaleproducer #womenwhopaint #femalepainter #womeninfilm #womenintv #womendesigners #femaledesigner #womenindesign #femalepoet #womeninart #femaleart #justwrite #justart #writemoreletters #femalesingers #femalemusician #womeninmusic #femalesinger

Hey you. Don’t you worry, I’m still around. Just in a different state, with a whole different setting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember that “life” I keep talking about? That one you desire and dream? Well this right here....is a part of mine. It’s not the tasks, to-do’s, the pile of laundry or anything in this powerful and nonstop world wide web. It’s this one right here, this is the one I desire, and the one I love living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s the one where I’m at the top of a cliff, all by myself, in a sense of wonderment and freedom. Now, it’s time for me to get back into that world. I’m telling you now to go chase yours. You’re going to be so happy that you did.❤️ • • • • • • • • • • #balancedentrepreneur #entrepreneur #selflove #selfcare #femaleentrepreneur #ladyboss #motivational #inspirational #bookauthor #author #forwomen #womenauthors #personalgrowth #businessowner #darlingmovement #momlife #womensupportingwomen #empowerment #writingabook #motivationalspeaker #bookwriter #ladyinbusiness #goalsetting #entrepreneurlifestyle #womenontherise #buildingadream #lifestyle #buildingalife #getaway #vacationmode

BOOK REVIEW⁣ I tend to alternate between being completely immersed in one book and wanting to read every book I own simultaneously. I'm still reading Cat's Eye, but I suddenly needed to read something, anything by Virginia Woolf. Having read (and loved) Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, I decided to start at the beginning with The Voyage Out. I don't know how I only read A Room of One's Own during college, because Virginia Woolf's writing has influenced me more than any classic author's. Also, how did I not know the Dalloways made an appearance in this book? ⁣ ⁣ In The Voyage Out, a couple from London, the Ambroses, join their niece Rachel on a ship to South America. A sheltered young woman, Rachel encounters many people on this trip who wish to mould her in their image, as she learns what it means to be a woman in the world, where people can't say what they wish to. ⁣ ⁣ "'So now you can go ahead and be a person on your own account,' she added.⁣ The vision of her own personality, of herself as a real everlasting thing, different from anything else, unmergeable, like the sea or the wind, flashed into Rachel's mind and she became profoundly excited at the thought of living." ⁣ ⁣ I enjoyed this book immensely, even if it lacked Woolf's distinctive stream of consciousness narrative. For that reason, I'd recommend The Voyage Out to anyone wanting to become acquainted with her writing, as it's more straightforward than her later work. ⁣ ⁣ #bookstagram #bookgram #booktography #instabooks #bookstagramfeature #bookish #bookworm #readersofig #booksofig #bookreview #kindle #bibliophile #thevoyageout #virginiawoolf #reader #igbooks #books #booklover #reading #instabook #booklove #igreads #igbooks #booklife #booksta #instareads #classics #literature #womenauthors #modernliterature
#bookreview I fully admit that I am late to the party on this book. This is one of those books for me that just got so. much. hype. that I knew if I read it then it would never meet my expectations. Numerous comparisons to one of my all-time favorite books, The Handmaid's Tale also made me really skittish. . I'm glad I took my time getting to this because The Power was worth the wait. The novel has a very solid story told from multiple unique voices. This book falls squarely in the realm of speculative fiction and I think Alderman does a very good job creating a very believable plotline out of a completely fantastical situation. . The Power is intense, and at times graphic and violent. In the end it will give you much to think about in the context of today's feminist movement. I undertand the comparison to The Handmaid's Tale, but I wouldn't call this a read alike, either. Overall I give this read 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5/5 stars. . 👉 What book did you put off because of the overwhelming hype? . #thepower #naomialderman #speculativefiction @naomi_alderman #feministreads #baileyswomensprizeforfiction #bookofthemonth #bookofthemonthclub #books #bookstagram #instabook #bookworm #fiction #womenauthors

“Her spirit began whispering to her that sometimes you seem so small and the area around you so big—like the walk to the confessional with a mind full of complex sins...and that trudge of a woman down the passageway to a bedroom against her will...It was so big and looming, trapezoidal and shifting—wouldn’t stay still and was getting fuzzier with each footfall as she swaying, trod. It was surreal and blackening, and rotating off its axis, it was the longest, longest, homestead-unit walkway.” #domesticviolence #domesticabuse #domesticviolenceawareness #wifeyfey #books #authorsofinstagram #amazon #barnesandnobleonline #paperback #kindle #authors #womenauthors #theppitimes

Plost Twist! God has other plans than what I had planned. Or, at least, He wants something else first rather than what I had been working on. . Have you ever had this happen? You think this is where God is leading, but then there’s a giant curve ball. You realize this isn’t the Thing, and it’s actually completely over There in another direction and you’re back at square one. . This happened to me in the last week or so. I realized that my debut book will not be my Leadership book that I just finished writing a couple weeks ago, but an entirely different book that I haven’t even put pen to paper yet. . I have an agent, was in the middle of writing a proposal, All The Things for the leadership book were in motion. It’s done and ready and could be taken to publishing houses by my agent any day. . But God has made it infinitely clear in many different ways, and through many people, that the message He needs out first is not what’s in this book. . So I have two choices. Allow myself to question and doubt and be frustrated. Or, I can trust what Proverbs 19:21 says and move forward. . “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that will prevail.” . I’m choosing #2 . Because the entire point behind me writing, speaking or doing any of this is for the Lord. He’s the reason I started it all. It’s whatever He wants to do through me and use me for. It’s not about me. . I pray daily for the Lord’s leading, in every area. I am a control freak by nature and if left to my own devices, I’ll force things to happen… resulting in me DIY’ing my life when I should be relying on God and His timing. It never ends well! So here again, I am choosing to lift this to the Lord and surrender. Not knowing where it would lead, just following a path until He showed me where to go next. . So here we go! My second book, which will be my first one out (I think. We’ll see what God does!). At least I know my sophomore manuscript is already done, right!? . Do you feel God changing your course on something? What are you working on or creating right now?
Hey everyone! A + G here 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ back from the ether with a couple of books that have some pretty exciting goings-on attached! 💓 We know we’re not supposed to apologize for this, but we ARE sorry we haven’t posted in a while—things have been super crazy for us both to say the least. Life. 💫 BUT— we have so much planned in these coming weeks, including some exciting announcements we’ll be rolling out this week that incorporate these two awesome books, and our local community, and general book-party fun, which is what we’re all about, and we are so stoked to share! Bet you can’t guess what it is!! 😏😋 🤘🏼🖤 Amelie + Gitana 👯‍♀️ ...Also, it’s going to be fall by the end of this week, which makes me want to read HORROR. I’m thinking it’s time to start Handmaid’s Tale. 😏😏😏 ✌🏼Gitana
We’ve recently chatted over brunch and discussed Around the Way Girl by phenomenal woman, @tarajiphenson ! We all agreed that we were very inspired by her life and the choices she had to make to be as successful as she is today. Have you read her book yet? What were your thoughts?
More humid rain in the forecast today, then it’s 60s and fall for the next few weeks 🍂 . After getting home from class last night, I binged 6 episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, thank you for all your suggestions!As school is ramping up, it’s getting a little harder to read for pleasure, but I’m hoping to dedicate some time this weekend to THE WITCH OF WILLOW HALL. I’m not going to put pressure on myself and stress myself out with trying to read all the books. It’ll happen when it happens! . . . . . . . . . . . #thewitchofwillowhall #rainydayreads #fallreads #thursdayreads #spookybooks #witchyread #witchlit #womenauthors #historicalfiction #creepyreads #witchplease #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookishcommunity #alwaysreading #bookishinstagram #bookworm #amreading #bookcommunity #whatiread

🌟🌟 Absolutely love Yoon's novel Everything Everything (go find it now!) but I feel this one doesn't have the same sparkle. It's a story about a Jamaican American teen and Korean American teen, fated to meet, and their family relationships. Content note: suicidal thoughts, deportation.
