It’s been quite some time that I didn’t write something that is not book related. So today it’s going to be about how I’m failing at being a mother.
About 9 years ago, when I had my babies, twin boys, nobody told me how hard is going to be. As a matter of fact, about two months after giving birth I kinda realized that I’m on my own and that is when I also realized that depression hit me hard. I wanted so bad to be a good, caring mother but my mind and body were not really listening to me. 9 years later, after reading a bit about parenting, I realized that the first years of life are the most important in the emotional development of a child. Well guess what?! The first years of my boys life I was a disaster, which probably means that I screwed up their emotions.
I got this book at a library sale for 1$. When I looked at the cover, which represents a bunch of Russian puppets, and when I read the description on the back cover, I somehow knew that I have to read it.
Marie and Sophie are sisters that love each other very much. Right at the beginning of the book the family is passing through a tragedy, their father just passed away. The age of both girls is not mentioned but it is clear that they are both close to puberty. It is pretty obvious that they are greatly affected by the loss of their father, it seems like they had a great connection. This event is deciding the paths that they are taking, as it is in that precise moment that they decide their career.
The book is written from both girls perspective. The chapters are really called ‘Marie’ or ‘Sophie’ so the reader knows exactly what they are doing almost at the same time.
Plot:Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing…
Scarlet is the second book in The Lunar Chronicles and it is even better than Cinder. If like me, you had a hard time understanding the first book and you were not really able to connect with the characters, well let me tell you this: Scarlet will not disappoint you!
Safety is a something that we should all feel at all times. And when we feel that we are falling, someone’s hand should grab ours and lift us right up.
What happens when no one seems to notice?! Maybe you didn’t scream for help…and if you did and nobody seemed to care, then maybe you did not choose the right people to be around you…harsh words indeed…but the truth always hurts…
Of course this is more or less true depending on where you live in the world…or your age…or…or…🤷♀️🤔
