Diary of a #bibliophile Chapter 19 I'm dreaming that I am awake. I dream that I get out of bed and walk across the room, not this room, and go out the door, not this door. I'm at home, one of my homes, and she's running to meet me, in her small green nightgown with the sunflower on the front, her feet bare, and I pick her up and feel her arms and legs go around me and I begin to cry, because I know then that I'm not awake. I'm back in this bed, trying to wake up, and I wake up and sit on the edge of the bed, and my mother comes in with a tray and asks me if I'm feeling better. When I was sick, as a child, she had to stay home from work. But I'm not awake this time either. After these dreams I do awake, and I know I'm really awake because there is the wreath, on the ceiling, and my curtains hanging like drowned white hair. I feel drugged. I consider this: maybe they're drugging me. Maybe the life I think I'm living is a paranoid delusion. Not a hope. I know where I am, and who, and what day it is. These are the tests, and I am sane. Sanity is a valuable possession; I hoard it the way people once hoarded money. I save it, so I will have enough, when the time comes. - The Handmaid鈥榮 Tale, Margaret Atwood #book #literature #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #thursdayreading #keepcalmandread #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood

#aliasgrace es una serie de #cbc y #netflix , basada en la obra de #margaretatwood , de cuya mano tambi茅n naci贸 #elcuentodeladoncella #thehandmaidstale , obra versionada con 茅xito por #mgm y #hulu y disponible en #hbo . Como 茅sta, #aliasgrace es una serie que destila cierto feminismo y un tono reivindicativo. Afortunadamente, lo hace en su justa medida, sin caer en anacron铆as ni discursos exacerbados. Al fin y al cabo es una serie hist贸rica y es, precisamente, del contraste de lo que se nos cuenta con nuestros valores actuales de donde surge el discurso y su efectividad. Resulta, en cambio, un tanto artificiosa la inclusi贸n de ciertas subtramas y personajes cuya utilidad para el relato solo existe en base a esa intenci贸n cr铆tica y no en tanto al relato, lo que puede chirriar un poco y sacar al espectador del relato en alg煤n momento. Afortunadamente, la serie es siempre 谩gil e interesante, est谩 bien rodada por #maryharron y bien interpretada por un elenco encabezado por #sarahgadon , si bien su personaje peca de ser repipi en exceso y un tanto impertinente para la 茅poca y la posici贸n social que ocupa. Es dif铆cil creerse su ingenuidad ante ciertos eventos y situaciones cuando luego su forma de pensar y expresarse es bien distinta. En resumen: no es una serie perfecta, pero s铆 muy recomendable.

Ok I have to say this was a slow read for me. In the sense that the descriptions are beautiful but also very VERY extensive and long. But I still enjoyed it. Also the parts that were climactic had me going "wtf is going on girl!??" So yeah I'll watch the show at some point. I wonder if the show is a slow builder too? 馃馃馃 #feminist #feminism #art #beauty #diversecreations #blackreaders #blackgirlreader #girlpower #blackgirlmagic #chilling #colour #femalewriters #feministreads #feministbooks #diversereading #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #blackreader #blackgirlsread #bookaddict #bookstagram #female #bookcovers

BOOK // Mon coup de 鉂わ笍 du moment ! 馃摉 Je regrette presque de ne pas l'avoir d茅couvert avant 馃檴 (publi茅 en 1897 en France) Pour info, l'auteure Margaret Atwood nous embarque dans son roman de science-fiction qui d茅crit un futur dystopique (plus proche qu'on ne le croit) dans lequel nous suivons Defred, une servante 茅carlate qui nous raconte son histoire... Bref, j'ai h芒te de le terminer et de commencer la s茅rie ! 馃槉 Mais je vous en parlerai davantage dans un prochain article ! 馃挕 鈥⑩⑩ #new #book #laservanteecarlate #margaretatwood #decouverte #coupdecoeur #thehandmaidstale #robertlaffont #partenariat #reech #enjoy #goodday #angers
