This was an ok read. There are not too many books I can think of that are set in Afghanistan, which makes this interesting. But the writing just didn‘t grab me. I did enjoy the first book though which I read a few years ago.

Lie With Me: A Novel | Philippe BESSON

“...[accepts an] absence that is not death...” A strange state of limbo to be in but applies to all kinds of relationships. #bookstagram #relationships #amreading

This book was amazing. Even as someone who isnt married or in a relationship this was a very intresting and eye opening read. I think everyone should read this book. It definitely even helps with figuring out how you yourself feel. Also as someone who was in a relationship with someone who showed me no love language let alone my own I see what people crave and expect from their partners.

I read this one for this weeks Epic Reads challenge. I love how these challenges pull me to reading books I might have missed. It was a difficult, but worthwhile book.

Mating in Captivity | Esther Perel

Mating in Captivity offers more questions than answers, but the questions are worth asking. On the surface, this book appears to primarily address difficulty with physical intimacy, but underneath that premise, the reader is invited to see eroticism as another language with which to communicate. Perel's a polyglot and her mastery of language adds poetry, making Mating in Captivity a breathless read.

🎶Something in your eyes is makin' such a fool of me
When you hold me in your arms, you love me 'til I just can't see
But then you let me down, when I look around🎶


Cinfhen Bipolar Disorder is so rough. An acquaintance , someone I just know from the neighborhood lost her husband to suicide only weeks ago. She said at his funeral he suffered in silence for years as he dealt with Bipolar Disorder. He was 52😭😭😭 4w
Eggs @Cinfhen 😢😢💔💔 4w
lucifare This would be an interesting read and perspective, I have been diagnosed with BPD for years and I know it‘s a struggle not only with myself but for those who are around me. 4w

Eggs I‘m sure it would be @lucifare . According to google, Bipolar disorder @Cinfhen is a mood disorder and bpd is a personality disorder, though there are shared symptoms. What do you think @lucifare ? 4w
lucifare Yes, they can have some of the same symptoms. Many people with BPD can have bipolar disorder or depression or other mental illnesses along with it. My doctors explained to me that personality disorders are more entrenched learn behaviors and inability to regulate and respond to an environment, and mood disorders are chemical imbalances, but they definitely overlap and influence the other. 4w
Cinfhen Thanks for clarifying @Eggs @lucifare 4w
Eggs Thanks @lucifare💗💗 4w

1. I don't know about ever, but the shortest book I've read so far in 2019 was “The Spectator Bird“ (226 pgs).
2. Longest book ever was “War and Peace“ (1,802 pgs). Every year I read a book that is 1,000 pages or more.
3. I do genealogy research, so I have books in my house from the 1800s (town histories and the like)
4. “What We Will Become: A Mother, a Son, and a Journey of Transformation“ -- published on 11/12/19

#bookquestion #EST @ljuliel

ljuliel You‘re able to crank out those books pretty quickly, so a book of 200+ pages was probably a breeze. 😊. Now.....War and Peace....I‘ve heard is a REALLY good book. That is one.big.book. 4w
Amiable @ljuliel “W&P“ was a lot more readable and enjoyable than I expected! I took my time with it -- it took about 3 or 4 months to finish. Had to download that on my e-reader, though -- didn't want to carry that puppy around on the train to work! 😬 4w
ljuliel I can imagine. You‘d build up some powerful arm muscles 💪🏼 4w
