LET THEM EAT CAKE! 🍰🍰🍰
Per visitare il @museodeltessuto ho ricreato il trucco della scena "let them eat cake" (obviously with my own twist) del film #marieantoinette di @sofiacoppola_official e sì, diciamo che mi sono anche accessoriata per l'occasione.
Non so se si è capito che è uno dei miei film preferiti (per non parlare dell'epoca nel campo della moda e dell'estetica in generale).
Torneró sicuramente prima che la mostra finisca.
"Let me ask you something. Do you think there's such a thing as a perfect day?"
"A perfect day. Start to finish. When nothing terrible or sad or ordinary happens. Do you think it's possible?"
"I don't know".
"Have you ever had one?"
"I've never had one either, but I'm looking for it." -Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places.
Nunca había leído nada igual.
Cuando lo terminé me acuerdo que me generó un vacío tremendo.
Estuve descolocada por meses. Es contradictorio, pero me encanta que me haya generado esas emociones. Me hizo reflexionar bastante, me sirvió para investigar sobre la salud mental.
Historias como las de Violet & Finch suceden muy a menudo. Las cosas tienen que cambiar.
Por más conciencia y menos tabúes. 💙
A Theodore Finch le fascina la muerte. Cada día piensa una manera de morir distinta, pero cada día también trata de buscar algo que lo mantenga firme, vivo y despierto.
Violet Markey vive pensando en el futuro, contando los días hasta la graduación, el día que podrá escapar de su pequeña cuidad Indiana y del duelo de la muerte de su hermana.
Cuando Finch y Violet se encuentran en la terraza de la escuela, no queda claro quién salva a quién. Pronto será solo con Violet que Finch podrá ser cómo es. Y es solo con Finch que Violet se olvida de contar los días y empieza a vivirlos. Pero mientras que el mundo de Violet crece, el de Finch empieza a encogerse.
BOOK REVIEW “All The Bright Places” by Jennifer Niven
WARNING : SPOILERS. Hmm.. All The Bright Places, I feel like I’ve read you before. For me, this book was a bit juvenile for me - I would have loved this in high school but I’ve read so many books like it before it felt almost cliche. Bipolar boy meets suicidal girl and boy helps girl find worth from her life. Mental illness is definitely a topic that needs to be discussed widely and included in literature, however this story lacked an original plot for me. Also, Finche’s home life is AWFUL and his parents are so ignorant that it was painful to read. My friend gifted this to me for my birthday as it’s her favourite book. So I can understand why people love it and feel an emotional connection to it, but I personally didn’t feel attached to this particular story. .
All the Bright Places is one of my all-time favorite mental health books. And, before anyone feels the need to comment that's it's "such bad depression representation, though!", let me stop you. Because this book was the FIRST story that made me feel understood. This was the first novel that validated my disease instead of making me wonder if I was just being whiny & dramatic.
And so I passed it on to a friend of mine who also suffers from depression, & she loved it, too.
Which really does make me wonder: Is there such thing as "bad representation" when it comes to mental health? Or are people just upset because it isn't THEIR representation? Because, honestly, I don't feel like it's my place to judge someone else's circumstances or mental state. What helps you, inspires you, comforts you, etc? Is entirely your own.
What are some of your most beloved "bad" books?
📚All the Bright Places📚
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister's recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it's unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the 'natural wonders' of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It's only with Violet that Finch can be himself - a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who's not such a freak after allAnd it's only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet's world grows, Finch's begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?
Review with potential spoilers.... I love a book that you can connect with when it comes to sensitive subjects such as mental illness and suicide... it's not a light subject to talk about and it's not what people want to talk about but it's necessary when it could potentially help just one person that may need it....
I loved the way these to characters, Violet and Finch find eachother and how their stories are opposite but they end up in the same situation at the start..
Then they become what eachother needs and they become eachothers saviours....
I read Jennifer nivens holding up the universe a couple of weeks back and I loved her writing even then and this one is just as good it's a realistic scenario and I connected with it alot from when I was in school and I wanted to change my identity loads of times and I was struggling with bullying.... And I cried at the end so it is definitely a good book.... I honestly recommend this to anyone who hasnt yet read it yet...
I will be starting Everything, Everything tonight so I can't wait to read that... Peace out
Currently reading this book. Got me thinking about life. I see myself as a Fitch. I was always changing. Trying to fit in or trying to express something. I could never figure who I was supposed be or even worse who I was. Sometimes I feel like I'm still looking. It's made me think about how I felt during high school while dealing with mental health. I was constantly harming myself and thinking about ending shit. I was angry. I wouldn't talk to people because they wouldn't listen to me. Why ask if you don't want an answer. Anyway currently loving this book. ❤️❤️ #allthebrightplaces#bookstagram#booklover#booknerd#paperbackhead
