What a deep movie... wow. Everyone played their role so well and so beautifully! Even though this movie is serious and about a murder... it still gives me this freedom and joyful feeling when it ends. Beautiful scene of how Susie fulfills her goal (kissing Ray) and Mr.Harvey (murderer) got rid of her body that was in that safe which meant she is finally free... #moviescene #movie #lovelybones #thelovelybones #alicesebold #saoriseronan

“...she’s lucky to be alive” the detective said.

I can’t help but wonder with all the images shown daily on IG how many have overcome personal challenges to appear “normal” again to be accepted. 🔗Along my journey I worked with author of a bestseller “Lucky” Alice Sebold after a very difficult time in her life. 🔗We worked through her pain and she became a stronger survivor after we met. 🔗Alice...where ever you are, thank you for being who you are and sharing your story as an example of never giving up to others that believe they can no longer endure. 🔗Also for acknowledging me during our time with your memory...”give me three more reps☺️” 🔗We are all so much stronger than we think we are.

Moje ulubione miejsce do czytania 😀 Czytelniczy cel na luty: książka przed ekranizacją. Planowałam ukończyć czytanie serii, na bazie której nakręcono serial "Zawołaj położną" ale zdecydowałam się na wybór krótszej "Nostalgii anioła". Just my favourite reading nook 😉 Reading goal for February: book before movie / TV series. I was planning on finishing "Call the midwife" diary series but instead picked up shorter "Lovely bones". #czytabomadalekododomu #reading #longwayhome #bus #travel #zkmgdynia #liniaz #4254 #czytanie #goals #postanowienia #silynazamiary #lovelybones #alicesebold

Today's drop is The Amost Moon by Alice Sebold.  Artist's model and divorcee, Helen Knightly spontaneously murders her mother, an agoraphobic now suffering from severe dementia, by suffocating her with a towel. But while her act is almost unconscious, it also seems like the fulfilment of a long-cherished, buried desire, since she spent a lifetime trying to win the love of a mother who had none to spare.
Over the next twenty-four hours, Helen recalls her: childhood, marriage, and life as a mother. Her life and the omnipresent relationship with her mother rush in at her as she confronts the choices that have brought her to that crossroads.

"Mi chiamavo Salmon, come il pesce. Nome di battesimo: Susie. Avevo quattordici anni, quando fui uccisa il 6 dicembre 1973."
AMABILI RESTI di Alice Sebold 🍁TRAMA: Susie Salmon,una ragazza intelligente, brava a scuola, con una bella famiglia molto legata alle spalle: un fratellino piccolo, una sorella, una mamma e un papà. A distruggere la loro tranquillità e il loro amore c’è un brutale omicidio. La vittima? La povera piccola Susie, stuprata e assassinata. L’assassino? Ce lo dirà proprio la ragazza, che ci narra gli avvenimenti precedenti e seguenti alla sua morte, dal paradiso personale ("il Cielo"), dal quale inizia a vedere come si svolge la vita nel suo quartiere senza di lei: la famiglia traumatizzata, i compagni di classe sconvolti, il suo assassino che se ne sta tranquillo nella sua casetta, pronto per la prossima vittima.

Warning! Here there be spoilers! I just finished The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and I’m still rolling it around in my mind.  The book’s narrator Susie (last name Salmon, like the fish) tells us her story, and describes the ongoing lives of those she knew on earth, from her very own customized heaven.  The “heaven” described in the book is so different than what I have imagined in my own musings, but it works well enough in this story.  When I started this book I thought it was going to be a supernatural thriller, and that we would watch Susie Salmon’s killer, from along side her in her heaven, until he slipped up and got caught.  What I got instead was an intricate look inside the minds, and of the lives of those affected by Susie’s death.  The Lovely Bones paints a sometimes realistic, but also beautifully embellished picture of grief.  It’s a bit wordy at times, but I tend to enjoy that sort of thing. When a loved one is lost, everyone reacts in their own way. Some run away from the loss. Some face it head on. Some drown themselves in the loss, and some numbly tiptoe around the edge of it. Sometimes we do all of those things to varying degrees. Grief is a complicated thing, once it’s there it doesn’t ever completely go away.  The idea that the dead grieve and long for us too, is both sad and comforting.  Like maybe if we reach out hard and far enough, we’ll feel them reaching back. I enjoy reading about beautiful and comforting afterlives, so this story worked for me. I believe these tales give us hope, and sometimes that’s all we need. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #readandreview #bookworm #bookstagram #bookdragon #bookblog #booklove #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookishgirl #instabooks #booknerd #bookgeek #literature #literaturelove #bookreview #booksuggestion #thelovelybones #alicesebold #lovelylittlebookreview #allthoselovelylittlethings #lovelylittlebookblog #readersofinstagram #readwithme #readandreviewed

Bonjour, bonjour ! Il est tôt mais comme c'est la photo d'hier j'espère que ça passera inaperçu 😜
~
Donc, il y a 1 an, le 14 février 2017, @marque_pages avait lancé un #relistesfavoris auquel j'ai participé avec plaisir 😃 Avec une selection de 23 livres 😊
~
Cela m'a pris presque 1an de les relire, bien sûr, j'ai fait un bon nombre de découvertes entre les relectures mais j'ai adoré me replonger dans ces histoires que j'avais tant apprécié 😄
~
Avant bookstagram, je ne savais même pas que la petite pile de livres qui attendait gentiment avait un nom, PAL, et je ne me doutais pas que celle ci grandirait si vite et que j'aurais autant envie de découvrir de nouveaux univers, moi la pro de la relecture 😅
~
Mais du coup, j'ai rapidement abandonné les relectures pour me consacrer aux nouvelles lectures et j'ai un peu délaissé et oublié mes livres préférés, du coup ce challenge est tombé à pique et m'a permis de replonger dedans avec grand plaisir 😃
~
Et vous, vous relisez certainses de vos lectures ou pas du tout ??

Encerrado 🙌🏻
Tudo deu certo mas deixemos de lado o intocável Paraíso perdido do Milton, mas três livros foram finalizados e mais dois livros (Tu não te moves de ti + Ensaio sobre a cegueira) para a pilha infinita. Mas dei uma baita adiantada

‘Nothing is ever certain.’ 6/26- a book you pick solely for the cover. But seriously love this novel. Found it through the film weirdly. #26bookchallenge #thelovelybones #alicesebold

Just finished this. Unusually, for me, I watched the film first and as soon as I started reading I realised how admirably restrained director Peter Jackson was with the story.
.
The story, as is necessary in cinema, is more compact and pared down. It is also less gory and yet more suspenseful than the book.
.
Like the protagonist / narrator I was 14 years old in 1973. The diary in the photo is my diary from 1972-1976.

#МилыеКости от #ЭлисСиболд
Самое первое и самое красивое издание я заказала ещё до того, как оно поступило в продажу. Это вторая книга #AliceSebold, о первой книге #Счастливая я писала примерно полтора года назад, там автор описала свою жизнь, с чем ей пришлось столкнуться и что пережить, когда её изнасиловали. Но позже она узнала, что ей повезло, по сравнению с другой жертвой, которую там же изнасиловали, убили и расчленили. И после книги о себе она написала эту, в память о девочке (обо всех девочках, подвергшихся насилию, ставших жертвами психопатов).
Несмотря на тяжёлый сюжет, когда в самом начале 14-летняя девочка становится жертвой насильника и погибает, книга читается легко. Мы видим, что происходит после смерти глазами главной героини. Что происходит с семьёй, родителями и братом с сестрой, что происходит с насильником, всё это описывается и эта жизнь, после смерти есть сюжет для книги и для, уже снятого, фильма. 
Героиня видит своего мучителя, своего убийцу; видит, почему он стал таким, сколько он терпел в детстве от матери. А когда вырос, стал срывать свою агрессию на таких же детях, которым когда-то был и он сам, таких же беззащитных, таких же слабых, тех кто не сможет дать отпор и защитить себя. Его можно понять, но ни в коем случае не оправдать. Он сам сделал свой выбор. Вместо того, чтоб прекратить этот круговорот зла, он его продолжает. В этом его ошибка и вина, за которую он обязательно будет наказан.
Родители девочки мучаются из-за ужасного чувства вины, которое давит, не выносят этого бремени, ломаются, пытаясь найти виновного, тогда как их вины в этом нет, но они взвалили её на себя и забыли о том, что у них есть ещё дети, которые тоже нуждаются в их любви и внимании. И хоть здесь нет счастливого конца, жизнь продолжается, рождаются новые люди, а любовь может всё победить и помочь пережить всё самое плохое. Только не все в неё верят и не все хотят и могут любить.
Перечитала, так как пришла пора расстаться с этой книгой, которая теперь будет радовать новую хозяйку. Фильм до сих пор так и не посмотрела, почему-то не так представляла себе героев.

“In the tunnel where I was raped… a girl had been murdered and dismembered. I was told this story by the police. In comparison, they said, I was LUCKY. But at the time, I felt I had more in common with the dead girl than I did with the large, beefy police officers or my stunned freshman-year girl friends. The dead girl and I had been in the same low place. We had lain among the dead leaves and broken beer bottles.” --- And that’s the beginning of Alice Sebold’s memoir, “Lucky”… The rape Alice experienced as a college freshman at Syracuse University (New York) decimated all ideas she had of a just universe. Being rape exists within the range of traumas... Our nation was founded by the traumatized fleeing their oppressors, and in this process, these newcomers then traumatized America’s original inhabitants. One of the primary shames of our nation is the traumatic enslavement of an entire race, taken by force of violence from a distant continent… In 2017, from the start of the presidency of a man who boasted about sexually assaulting women, a revolution’s bound to come. Many politicians and artists fall from their formerly-protected podiums. This is just the tip of the iceberg. So many victims remain too afraid to come forward… But there’s a drumbeat growing louder #MeToo #TimesUp… If the underpinning is formed by trauma, perhaps, a nation could be reformed from it. Voice to the voiceless. Listening without judgment is the greatest gift we can start with. “Lucky” is a multilayer of irony on how our luck is defined. Thank you, #AliceSebold, for speaking about the unspeakable, rape, PTSD and the victim’s pursuit of justice. *** Alice obtained an MFA from UC Irvine in 1998!🖤 Her other book, “The Lovely Bones,” remained 1st on the TIMES Bestseller list for 5 months and was later adapted into a 2009 film of the same name by Peter Jackson, starring Mark Wahlberg, Saoirse Ronan, Stanley Tucci, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Michael Imperioli.

Interesting talk by Alice Sebold at UCI last week. A little too political for my tastes but loved hearing about her writing. Plus, she’s working on a new project. Hurray!

Have you ever noticed that part of what comedians do is simply tell the truth of certain situations? Life is funny. Human beings are contradicted and complex. I love to laugh at myself and love those who can do the same. If I can laugh and get some intellectual distance from a situation, then everything is o.k.

Have you ever noticed what makes you immediately feel close to someone is their vulnerability and ability to share some of their truth with you?  Maybe mysterious is considered sexy by some because it is layered with fantasies, projections, addictions, and idealizations. But, when you can remove those layers and be totally naked and still confident...well...there is power in that. Maybe you realize that you are sexy without the mystery because you work out hard lifting heavy truths.

After writing a memoir, I better understand why I love reading memoirs—-“The Glass Castle,” by Jeanette Walls, “Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal?” by Jeanette Winterson and “Lucky” by Alice Sebolt were inspirations, not just for the beautiful writing but also for the clear moments of honesty. These authors gave me an intimate part of their lives. 
The worst advice I ever received was “Be mysterious” and “Remember that life is hard.” I decided to be straight-forward, truthful, and make life a whole lot easier.

Have you ever noticed that part of what comedians do is simply tell the truth of certain situations? Life is funny. Human beings are contradicted and complex. I love to laugh at myself and love those who can do the same. If I can laugh and get some intellectual distance from a situation, then everything is o.k. Have you ever noticed what makes you immediately feel close to someone is their vulnerability and ability to share some of their truth with you? Maybe mysterious is considered sexy by some because it is layered with fantasies, projections, addictions, and idealizations. But, when you can remove those layers and be totally naked and still confident...well...there is power in that. Maybe you realize that you are sexy without the mystery because you work out hard lifting heavy truths. After writing a memoir, I better understand why I love reading memoirs—-“The Glass Castle,” by Jeanette Walls, “Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal?” by Jeanette Winterson and “Lucky” by Alice Sebolt were inspirations, not just for the beautiful writing but also for the clear moments of honesty. These authors gave me an intimate part of their lives. The worst advice I ever received was “Be mysterious” and “Remember that life is hard.” I decided to be straight-forward, truthful, and make life a whole lot easier. #writersofinstagram  #memoirs  #autobiography  #truthquotes  #truthbetold  #truthsetsyoufree  #truthteller  #writingprompts  #honesty  #mysterious  #inspirationalwomen  #tuesdaymotivation  #tuesdaythoughts  #lifequotes  #lifeisbeautiful  #lucky  #theglasscastle  #jeanettewalls  #jeannettewinterson  #alicesebold  #lifeisgood  #lifeisgreat  #spiritualgrowth  #spiritualjourney  #motivationalquotes 
I have actual bookmarks that I really love and hold places in my favorite books, and then I have this.  My trusty old admission ticket for The Expelled. I use it in my currently reading books. It seems fitting since I mostly read horror, thriller, mystery, and suspense.  What are some of your favorite non-traditional bookmarks?  #currentlyreading #thelovelybones #alicesebold #booknerd #bookworm #bookgeek #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #instabook #readandreview #readersofig #readersofinstagram #readwithme #bookish #bookishgirl #readwithme #booklove #bookdragon #allthoselovelylittlethings #lovelylittlebookreview

I finished this #book months ago, but sometimes I suck. 
#thelovelybones is sweet and haunting. 
It exposes the ugliest and most beautiful parts of the #grieving process from multiple perspectives. 
I don't know why I have been #reading such gloomy books, but despite it's less than cheerful plotline, I recommend to especially those suffering from a loss. 
I found a sense of #peace that I haven't known yet regarding the #afterlife through this story, and I think that's worth sharing.

Just finished this book. Love❤ 
Susie Salmon 14 years old was murdered and she narrates the story from heaven. The movie is very different from the book. I recommend🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
