'The Handmaid's Tale,' Hulu's 10-episode adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel, tells the story of a near-future New England where women are stripped of their reproductive rights and forced to bear children as an answer to the nation's plunging birth rates. The series, which begins streaming today, stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, and Alexis Bledel. Though the idea of turning the book into a show was being kicked around for years, there's something eerie about the show debuting in the midst of our current political environment. We spoke to the show's cast and creators about dystopia, feminism and human rights after Trump. "On TV, if all you see is an all-white world, what's the difference between making a show that's about racists and making a racist show?" showrunner Bruce Miller says. "You're still telling the white-girl story. My central idea for Gilead was that fertility trumps everything." To read to full story, head to RollingStone.com.
"Find your soul Food" I've realised my soul food is dogs nature books movies travel kids family good music good food great company! These nourish my soul rejuvenate my imagination put my thinking mind to sleep and wake my dreaming mind up! We feed our minds our bodies but we neglect our souls! It is not only prayer that nourishes you for god is in all ! It's the inexplicable pleasure I receive from staring off into nature listening to music! Feed your soul even if it's for 5 minutes in a day for it will open up a world of possibilities. We need to evolve as a race and our souls will only grow if we nurture it! #TM #styletiskch #tmspeaks #nomakeup #soulfood #dogs #nature #books #movies #travel #kids #family #music #goodfood #rejuvenation #world #life #love #souls 💕

Members of the FFC may look like "regular" women, and we could be anywhere: tweeting about The Handmaid's Tale; bringing orange slices to your kid’s soccer game; swiping left on your Tinder; running your company or running next to you at the gym. Despite this tricky camouflage, be warned: FFC members are rigorously trained in statistical warfare, negotiation, and blocking micro-aggressions as well as grueling physical combat. We know computer code, how to dismantle a grenade, and Missy Elliot lyrics. #workit #ifyanasty

Within the Sanctuary of Wings, the fifth book in The Memoirs of Lady Trent series released this week, and I think I'd buy these for the covers alone! I mean, look at these beauties!! 😍 But never fear because the books sound awesome as well, and I cannot wait to read them! I'll leave the synopsis for book one down below. 🐉 Has anyone read this series? Are you in love with the covers as much as I am? 🐉 Synopsis of book one: You, dear reader, continue at your own risk. It is not for the faint of heart—no more so than the study of dragons itself. But such study offers rewards beyond compare: to stand in a dragon's presence, even for the briefest of moments—even at the risk of one's life—is a delight that, once experienced, can never be forgotten. . . . All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world's preeminent dragon naturalist. She is the remarkable woman who brought the study of dragons out of the misty shadows of myth and misunderstanding into the clear light of modern science. But before she became the illustrious figure we know today, there was a bookish young woman whose passion for learning, natural history, and, yes, dragons defied the stifling conventions of her day. Here at last, in her own words, is the true story of a pioneering spirit who risked her reputation, her prospects, and her fragile flesh and bone to satisfy her scientific curiosity; of how she sought true love and happiness despite her lamentable eccentricities; and of her thrilling expedition to the perilous mountains of Vystrana, where she made the first of many historic discoveries that would change the world forever. 🐉 #thememoirsofladytrent #withinthesanctuaryofwings #mariebrennan #dragons #torbooks
Właśnie skończyłam czytać kolejką książkę 😄. Jak widać mój zastój czytelniczy powoli mija 😋. Jeśli widzieliście na IS, to czytałam "Niebezpieczne Kłamstwa" od @wydawnictwootwarte i ponownie się wzruszyłam 😂. Byłam też na zakupach w Rossmannie i warto było czekać do samego końca, bo ominęły mnie walki przy półkach, a udało mi się kupić wszystko co chciałam i będę mieć teraz zapasy na kilka lat 😂. Na zdjeciu ➡ pieczywo z pasztetem sojowym i pomidorem, 2x jajko sadzone na maśle ghee + świeża sałata i detox tea ☺. #pistacjovaa #breakfast #snack #lunch #dinner #yummy #delicious #healthy #healthydiet #healthyfood #diet #weightloss #vegetables #fit #fitness #fitfood #food #foodpic #foodporn #foodstagram #poland #polishgirl #bookstagram #books #book #love #bedroom #kitchen #gym #vsco

"You’re weird.” “I know.” I lifted my head so my chin rested on his chest. “But you love me?” His lips tipped up at the corners. “I love you as much as a kid loves Santa.” I laughed. “That’s serious.” “Hardcore,” he murmured. #JenniferLArmentrou , #Frigid

Whaddup guys! What are you currently reading? I recently started reading Witch and Wizard by James Patterson and it's just okay in my opinion. I just don't like that the writing sounds like an adult who is trying to sound like a teenager. 😂 Other authors are good at it but it's just too obvious in this book in my opinion. ✌ Day 25 of #AprilBookstagram : Hilarious Characters No one comes close to being hilarious when it comes to the Weasley Twins! And man, I really need to reread Harry Potter soon! It has been 4 years since I last read the series and I want to refresh my memory before I read Cursed Child. 😂 . Q: Fave Harry Potter movie? . . . . . . . . {#book #read #books #igreads #reading #like4like #booklove #booklover #bookporn #bibliophile #bookworm #bookaholic #bookaddict #youngadult #bookish #bookstagram #instabooks #bookstagramfeature #booknerdigans #bookphotography #vscocam #vscobooks #vsco #harrypotter #jkrowling #hermionegranger #ronweasley

"Я была Алисой"-Мелани Бенджамин . Довольно неоднозначное впечатление произвела на меня эта книга... и вот почему🔻🔻🔻 . Книга рассказывает историю взросления Алисы Лидделл и её сестёр. Алиса-девочка, вдохновившая Чарльза Доджсона на написание культовой истории, которую многие любят и перечитывают на протяжении многих лет. Но что стоит за таким невинным образом ребёнка-музы? Как Кэрролл в реальности относился к Алисе и что он с ней делал, пока никого не было рядом? 😷 . От истории я ждала чего-то светлого и способного подарить радость, но во время чтения у меня было такое ощущение, что автор намеренно решила показать писателя (Кэрролла/Доджсона) в невыгодном свете и очернить его. Мэлани переплетала вымысел с теми немногими реальными фактами об Алисе, найденными в письмах, газетах и т.д. Если бы можно было забыть содержание этой книги, я бы это сделала и это одна из немногих книг, которую мне было некомфортно читать, что бывает очееень редко.  Конечно, после слов Мелани в конце романа о том, что всё в этой книге-выдумка, мне стало немного легче, но в то же время захотелось кинуть книгой в автора🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️так как какой был смысл писать это, что она хотела этим показать?? . Читать это произведение и воспринимать его как чистой воды монету точно не стоит, и вообще книга напомнила бульварный роман для любителей покопаться в "грязном белье" других людей☠️
İHANET ÇARKLARI | BÜŞRA TORAMAN #okuyucuyorumu "Bak, bekle," dedi Gregg onu susturarak. "Sadece dinleyeceksin. İnanmak zorunda değilsin. Sana söz veriyorum, eğer beş dakika sonra hala gitmek istersen, seninle beraber kardeşinin yanına kadar geleceğim." "Bunun beni ikna edeceğini mi sanıyorsun? Yüzünü bir daha görmeyeceğimi söyle. O zaman yukarı çıkmayı düşünebilirim." Gregg başını yana yatırarak gülümsedi. " Bu söylediğinde ciddi olmadığını ikimiz de biliyoruz." ✳✳✳✳✳✳✳✳✳✳ Merhabalarrr!! Amazon Efsanesi Üçlemesi'nin 2. Kitabı ve devamı olduğu için konusundan bahsedemiyorum yoksa bol bol spoi olur😊 Ama amazon topraklarında bir isyanın çıkması ve bunun bastırılmaya çalışılması ile amazon ve koper topraklarında çoğu şeyin değişime uğradığını söyleyebilirim sanırım. 1. kitaba göre o kadar çok aksiyon, macera, hareketlilik vardı ki bir solukta hemen bitirilebilir. Sırların bir kısmı açığa çıkıyor fakat yeni sırlar ortaya çıkıyor. Alekacım bu ne gizem? diyesim var😊 Şu Pamela'yı uzay boşluğuna falan gönderebiliyor muyuz😐 Başta da sevmemiştim şimdi de sevmiyorum!! Kaldı son kitap. Merak içindeyim. Aleka ve Gregg'in atışmalarını çok seviyorum. Onlardan biriyle veda edeyim. ⏩"Beni bırakırsan, umarım üzerine düşerim ve başını yere falan çarparsın." "Bu güzel dileklerine bayılıyorum. Günümü daha da aydınlatıyor." #fotoğraf ; @akik_kitapligi #ihanetcarklari #busratoraman #ephesusyayinlari #kitap #kitaplar #oku #kitapokumak #bookishfeature #book #books #bookstagram #bookish #booklife #bookaholic #bookmark #bookworm #bookshelf #booking #booklove #booklovers #alıntı #booknerd #instakitap #bookphotograpy #kütüphane #kitapsevgisi #kitapkurdu #kitapzamani
