Brown Girl, Brownstones
Despite the fact that I had read almost every book in my high school library ...read secondary grammar school in the UK, by the time I left, I did not find this book until I was an undergraduate at 19 at Bristol U.
As a child of a bajan mother and a biafran father it spoke to many of my questions about identity as a Bajarian born in Britain,ntyen raised in Lagos,Enugu Umahia and Shepherd's Bush ! As the eldest of four siblings , I understood the fierce pride and love with which my mother carried us solo into our lives ,following our separation from our father during and after the Biafran war.
I love Paule Marshall's rich layered complex writing and the many places in which both Silla, the mother character and Selena, the young protaganists stories echo my own. The discovery of racism and its impact on Selena is one of the most poignant I have ever read. I now llive and work in and around present day Fulton St and Brooklyn so that too makes me love the book.

I am sharing this novel with my husband and my teenage daughter that they may better understand the kind of forces that shaped me.

Voy a dividir esta reseña en distintas temáticas para que sea más útil:

RESUMEN:
Cepillos de muy buena calidad (PERO SUAVES). El envase y los cepillos son reciclables (aunque la caja no lo tengo muy claro pese a ser de cartón plastificado) . La marca tiene un compromiso muy interesante con la sociedad y con el medio ambiente (no es la típica marca china que hace 'greenwashing'). Recomendables, mi puntuación sería un 9/10 (porque me gustaría que la marca tuviese la opción de un 'pack' con cerdas medias).

TEMA CEPILLOS:
Los cepillos vienen en una caja de cartón y envueltos individualmente con papel (ver foto). Como tienen colores distintos, van muy bien para diferenciarlos en casa. En cuanto a dureza, son bastante suaves. Yo había probado otros cepillos de bambú de otra marca (la cual los vendía como dureza media) y eran más duros. Personalmente, creo que si estás acostumbrado a los cepillos duros vas a notar muchísimo el cambio, pero todo es acostumbrarse ¡Yo me he acostumbrado! En cuanto al palo, es de madera muy suave y de los dos que he abierto no he encontrado ninguna astilla ni nada raro. Tiene una superficie que es plana (otros cepillos son más ergonómicos, eso hay que admitirlo) pero eso hace que no se gaste tanto bambú para hacer un cepillo, cosa ideal en el tema de reducir los recursos necesarios.

TEMA ELECCIÓN DE LA MARCA:
Es la segunda marca de cepillos que pruebo y me decidí a comprarlos por el cometido de la marca con el medio ambiente. Por amazon hay muchos vendedores que compran los productos a China y simplemente les ponen un empaquetaje bonito; pero sin solucionar así gran parte del problema (explotación, recursos de agricultura intensiva, químicos en los productos...), suelen hacer "greenwashing". Para asegurarme de que no se trataba de greenwashing, comprové si estava en la tienda online 'earthhero' que comprueba la procedencia y compromiso de las marcas que vende. La marca sí que está a la venta en esa web, así que es fiable! Luego comprové que no se tratase de una imitación ni nada por el estilo, contacté con la marca por correo y me confirmaron que los productos que se vendian por Amazon eran oficiales. Esto me dio una alegría porque aquí tienen unos precios mucho más económicos que en su propia web, y los envios con Prime salen gratis (en la web creo que valen 4€). La última cosa que me parece destacable de la marca es la fundación 'humble smile foundation' que es un proyecto muy interesante y necesario.

TEMA RECICLAJE:
La caja es de cartrón plastificado, cosa que me hace dudar entre si es reciclable o no, creo que ese aspecto deberían mejorarlo. Los envoltorios individuales de los cepillos son de papel fino 100% así que son reciclables.
En el mismo paquete indica que para reciclar bien el cepillo hay que quitarle las cerdas (con alicates o cortando la parte superior del cepillo) las cuales se deben tirar al contenedor del plástico. La parte de bambú se puede tirar al compost (tanto casero como industrial y de recogida) y según aquí indica, se degrada en unos 2 meses.

Dicho esto, aquí acaba mi reseña, espero que te haya sido útil :)

I usually love Nora Roberts but Im really disappointed to hate this series, they are really old which I didn’t realise and had downloaded before a 17 hour flight! Only that I’ve already unfortunately paid for these I wouldn’t bother reading, they are so predictable and boring, I genuinely cannot believe that Nora Roberts has written these. Sorry for poor review but not for me.

Hidden: A Mitchum Story (BookShots)
I chose this book out of curiosity because I have the name Mitchum and am an author.
The book had a very slow start with lots of detail and very little significant plot. It was an enjoyable read with the action packed into the last portion of the book. The ending did not spell out a complete resolution for me which was a disappointment. Personally, even though it is a book shot book, I thought it needed another short chapter.

I thought I liked Penny Jordan books. I Did not like this book at all. I did not even finish reading it. Love at first sight within the first few paragraphs, They had not even spoken. There was barely any dialog between the H and h. He totally disrespects her. Always four paragraphs of h agonizing over things. Would not recommend

Hallmark Keepsake Christmas Ornament 2019 Year Dated Harry Potter Collection Light and Sound
This set with Harry, Ron, Hermoine, and the Hogwarts castle is really nice. The ornaments are gorgeous, as you would expect from Hallmark. With the whole set together it goes through a pretty long recap of the movie where the different characters repeat some of their lines from the first movie. It’s really well done! My son asked to keep the set out after we put all the rest of the Christmas stuff away, so it’s still sitting out on our bookshelf. Hope Hallmark adds new characters next year!!
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Large Glass Candle
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Large Glass Candle
Arrivata una candela simile, ma dai colori diversi: blu con il disegno oro. È comunque molto bella ma non è come da foto. Il prodotto è arrivato in uno scatoloncino con un po’ di carta a riempire, ma manca sicuramente di protezione, considerando che con i movimenti della spedizione la cera si è staccata dal barattolo e viene via.... c’è un cartoncino vicino allo stoppino che dichiara l’ufficialità del prodotto.
È per un regalo per mia sorella e so che apprezzerà ugualmente, ma se avessi dovuto regalarlo ad altri lo avrei reso. Non presentabile. Non ricomprerei.
Spedizione Amazon precisa come sempre.
NECA Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat Plush
NECA Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat Plush
After reading all the reviews I decided to go ahead and buy it anyway. The number one complaint is that it does not say all 4 houses. Let's consider this for a moment. The hat does not say Ravenclaw in the movie, and the samples that the hat says are taken directly from the recording on the movie. In order for the hat to say Ravenclaw, they would have had to bring the voice actor into the studio and record the additional phrase, which would be a pretty substantial expense, an expense not worthy of paying for a 15 dollar toy. We should take this item for what it is, an inexpensive novelty and conversation piece for Harry Potter fans. It executes that perfectly for the 15 dollar price tag. If you want a real sorting hat that looks perfect and says all 4 houses at random that you can wear, you would probably expect to pay more than 5 times what this costs. But if you want a cool inexpensive novelty to remind you of a great movie, it's definitely worth every penny.

The stickers were decent. But very small. And only one page of people. 3/4 of the stickers were just “filler” stickers
