QOTD: If you could have any superpower what would it be? . I think it'd be so cool to be a shapeshifter! Not only could I turn into something that could fly, I could also turn into a cat and then it wouldn't be frowned upon if I slept all day 😂 Or maybe I'd have my superpower be multiple sets of eyes so I could get through my entire tbr in a timely manner 🤣🤣 . . .

Happy Sunday 🌻
Prequel of the Wheel of Times series: New Spring. I started this book with high expectations but ended up felt rather bored with it, sorry to say. It was good to have insights on the BEGINNING of battle between the light and dark. It was also refreshing to get to know Moiraine and Siuan's relationship and also Moiraine and Lan's relationship. All in all, this book focuses a lot on Moiraine. But the down side of it is, its not really action packed except for the last chapter. It is so slow paced and taking into account of Robert Jordan's writing style (where he tends to use 2 to 3 pages to explain the surrounding circumstances of a market place), it makes the whole book rather dull if compared with the other books of the main Wheel of Time series. This only deserve a 3.5/5 star from me but that does not alter the fact that the Wheel of Time series is still the greatest fantasy series in my view. I would not start off the Wheel of Time series by reading this prequel first but will only start New Spring after I have completed the series. Still highly recommend the Wheel of Time series for the fantasy lovers out there! #bookstagram #newspring #wheeloftimeseries #robertjordan #fantasy #orbitbooks #bookcollector #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookoholic #beautifulbooks #kjreadsfantasy #WoT

Cuando los #libros sirven de consuelo: Fue una semana de locura, que empezó con una mera idea pero que poco a poco fue tomando fuerza y se hizo realidad ❤️ El resultado no fue el esperado, pero me quedó muy claro eso que dicen por ahí: a veces lo importante no es el viaje sino el camino 🌟 Este viaje terminó con un #libro de #anamaríamatute (editado por @eddestino ), una #autora que siempre he querido #leer y que por fin conoceré gracias a esas corazonadas que a veces tenemos los #lectores cuando nos enfrentamos a una #historia nueva 🎵 Al final, me queda como moraleja que si un viaje no se da, no hay por qué no iniciar otro. Y este libro representa eso: una nueva aventura por descubrir ❤️ (Ah, y tiene #mapas , lo recontradoré! ❤️❤️❤️❤️) ¿Qué estarán leyendo en estas fiestas? ¡Nos leemos!
3rd Christmas Gift recommendation, Fairy Tale retellings! "Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley They were among the first books to bring a distinctly girl-power spin to fairy tales—a spin taken up by hit movies and shows TV such as Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and Maleficent." ❄❄❄ Synonyms: "In this first book in the series, orphaned sisters Sabrina and Daphne are sent to live with their recently discovered grandmother, Relda Grimm. The girls learn that they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm, whose famous tome of fairy tales is actually a history book." ❄❄❄ #happyreadingwatching #12dayofchristmasbooks #bookrecommendations #fairytales #michaelbuckly #sistersgrimm #onceuponatime #fantasy #dectivies #giftideas #cleanbooks #bookphoto #booksagram #beautifulbooks #booksbooksbooks #bookworm #bookcollector #booklover #bookcommunity #christmastime

_ 수십개의 태그로 뒤덮힌 책을 덮었다. 대장정을 마친 느낌이었다. 대장정을 마친 것은 내가 아니라 그녀인데도. 8년동안 백악관에서 산 흑인여자. 주로 백인들이 다니는 명문대에서 공부하는 노동 계층 출신 흑인 학생이었고, 변호사였고, 병원 부사장이었고,젊은이들을 돕는 비영리단체의 책임자였고, 온갖 모임에서 유일한 여성이었고 유일한 흑인이었으며, 갓 결혼한 신부였고 스트레스에 시달리는 초보 엄마이자 아버지를 잃고 가슴이 찢어진 딸. 사실 나는 그녀를 잘 알지 못했다. 버락 오바마를 선택하고 또 다시 선택할 정도였던 미국인들이 대체 왜 그 이후 도널드 트럼프를 뽑았을까? 정도의 의문만 가지고 있었을 뿐이었다. 그녀는 그냥 그런 버락 오바마의 와이프, 그리고 수많은 사진에서 풍기는 이미지와 그녀가 하소연한 것처럼 뭔가 ‘성난흑인여자’ 의 느낌, 다소 세보인다는 것 정도. 그러던 중 내가 평소 좋아하던 곽아람 작가님의 리뷰를 보고 대번에 이 책이 읽고 싶어졌고, 마침 올해가 가기 전 이 책을 받아 읽는 행운도 누리게 되었다. 아이로 인해 갑자기 일주일에 한번씩 병원에 다니게 되었고 요즘 잘 먹질 않아 하루에 수십번씩 안아주며 어떻게 해서든 먹이려고 사투를 벌이면서도 이 책이 마저 읽고 싶어 독서대에 책을 올려놓고 한페이지를 읽고 아이를 안고 다음 페이지는 아이가 잠든 후 읽고. 이게 뭔 짓인가 싶었지만 그래도 좋았다. 내가 갑자기, 그리고 그토록 이 책에 매료되었던 이유는 나와는 전혀 상관없다고 생각했던 미합중국의 퍼스트레이디의 삶에서 나와닮은 모습을 발견했기 때문이었다. 자신이 충분한지, 이 일을 잘 할 수 있을지 불안해하고 걱정하지만 최선을 다하는 모습. 일과 가정 사이에서 고군분투하며 모두를 최선을 다해 지키고자 하는 모습, 강한 목적의식을 가지고 혼돈에 휩쓸리기는 커녕 오히려 활력을 얻는 남자 곁에서 ‘오바마 부인’으로 살아가며 남편을 통해 존재가 정의되는 여자가 된 것 같다는 생각을 하면서도 끊임없이 남편과 대화를 통해 우리가 누구인가, 우리에게 중요한 것은 무엇인가, 우리가 무엇을 할 수 있는가, 우리는 충분히 잘 하고 있는가를 지속적으로 검토하고 확인해가는 모습. 비슷한 성격을 가진 여자로서, 당장 내년부터 주20시간 근무를 시도하며 아이를 돌보는 것도 일도 제대로 해낼 수 있을지 불안해하는 엄마로서, 나는 그녀의 삶의 여러 면에 깊이 공감했고 또 내가 되고 싶은 모습을 보았다. 비록 원서로 읽을 재간이 없어 번역본을 읽고 있음에도, 한 문장 한 문장이 너무 좋았다. 똑똑한 사람들은 글도 정말 잘 쓰는구나. 내가 되고, 버락을 만나며 우리가 되고, 미국 최초의 흑인대통령과흑인 퍼스트레이디로 그 이상이 되는 모습에 가장 잘 어울리는 제목(becoming)과 더할 나위 없는 구조. 거의 600페이지에 달하는 자서전임에도 지루한 구석은 전혀 찾아볼 수 없었다. 재미있고 진실되었으며, 따뜻했고 의지가 느껴지는 책이었다. 아직 몇 주가 남았지만 올해의 마무리를 이렇게 좋은 책과 함께할 수 있다는 것이 너무 행복했다. 실로 즐거운 책읽기였다. 부디 그녀가 또 다른 더 많은 이야기를 들려주기 바란다. 몇페이지가 되든지 간에, 얼마든지 또 읽을 용의가 있기에. _ #책스타그램 #북스타그램 #책 #독서 #행복한서재 #엄마의독서 #책읽는지하철 #책읽는지하철100원기부 #비커밍 #미셸오바마 #웅진지식하우스 #becoming #book #bookstagram #bookaholic #booklover #bookcollector #bookmetro

. Brat’ya Karamazovi . . . “The centripetal force on our planet is still fearfully strong, Alyosha. I have a longing for life, and I go on living in spite of logic. Though I may not believe in the order of the universe, yet I love the sticky little leaves as they open in spring. I love the blue sky, I love some people, whom one loves you know sometimes without knowing why. I love some great deeds done by men, though I’ve long ceased perhaps to have faith in them, yet from old habit one’s heart prizes them.” . . We’re kicking off our Brothers Karamazov readalong and discussion using the #BratyaK hashtag. Follow along, join us, and chime in! It’s on now until end of whenever you feel like it . . Reasons you should join: 1. Let’s prove high-nosed Nabokov wrong: Dostoevsky is an extraordinary writer. 2. The themes in BK run through the fabric of our society, even today: how do we judge criminals? How do parents recover from the loss of a child? Why is there suffering? 3. Woolf’s praise: Dostoevsky “alone among writers has the power of reconstructing those most swift and complicated states of mind.” This is before Jung and Freud came into the picture. 4. You’ll cry. Or you’ll contemplate the moral landscape of your belief systems. Either way, you’ll be a better person for it. . #thoughtbubble #dostoevsky #Fyodordostoevsky #brotherskaramazov . . . . . #classicliterature #readersofinsta #booksofinstagram #myeverydaymagic #hygge #thewriterslife #readingnook #mybeigelife #bookcollector #bookwormsunite #readingcorner #bookishlife #bookaddict #bookaesthetic #fromwhereiread #readmorebooks #libraryofinstagram #bookvibes #literarylifestyle #culturetripbooks #amreading #currentlyreading #letsread #bookinsta #burymewithbooks
Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, right? RIGHT? I got the book stack for $5 at @recycledreadstx , where they have a Christmas sale going on so if you are in Austin, definitely check it out. I have no clue how they had the ARC of Au Pair, but I’m glad I scooped it up! ‘Circe’ and ‘An American Marriage’ were a part of my wish-list so I got these separately from another bookstore. My New-Year resolution is going to be a book buying ban. Let’s see if I am successful at all! 🤷🏻‍♀️ • • • • • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #booklove #bookpic #bookworm #bookphotography #bookrecommendation #bookobsessed #bookpic #bookish #booknerd #bookaholic #bookcollector #bookblogger #bookaddict #bookrec #booktrovertgirl #bibliophile #mustread #igreads #booksaremagic #bookreview #bookcommunity #bookaesthetic #amreading #booksonbooks #bookshelf #arcs #bookstack

#bookreview • Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann • 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍/5 • I’ve had this book sitting in my TBR all year and after staying up way too late reading it, I cannot believe I procrastinated it for so long. Grann’s investigative look into the systematic killings of wealthy Osage people in the 1920s-1930s is utterly transfixing. And it’s astonishing that these murders have been so culturally erased from history and memory that most of us have never heard of them. . . In the early 1900s, the Osage people discovered oil on their land and profited greatly from it. The federal government decided that the Osage, not being white men and all, were unfit to manage their own finances and appointed local white men as guardians to control their money and extort vast sums from them. The next step was a widespread conspiracy to murder the Osage and completely possess their wealth. . . The Osage men and women Grann profiles in this book were targeted in a variety of ways, but frequently a white spouse would slowly poison them (to death) to gain their rights to oil on Osage land. These rights could not be sold but only inherited. Mollie Burkhart was the victim of her white husband Ernest Burkhart and his surrogate father William Hale who poisoned one of her sisters and her mother, shot her second sister, and blew up her third sister and her family, in hopes of securing their money. They had next planned to murder Mollie herself so that all of the land rights would pass to her husband. . . Insidious legal corruption and racism kept most of the murders from ever being properly punished or even charged, because most of the killings went unnoticed as the government blamed alcoholism or illness for Native American deaths. Grann asks, “Would a jury of twelve white men ever punish another white man for killing an American Indian?” In these cases, the answer is an emphatic no. This story contains endless layers of horrors, and it’s a tragedy that American history has intentionally obscured them.
🎈 IT Appreciation Post 🎈 I truly cannot wait for IT: Chapter Two 😍 Last year, IT was my number one favorite movie and I had to watch it three times in theaters. Once the bluray finally came out, I constantly had the film on repeat. I also finally managed to read the novel last year and I fell in love with it. IT became my second favorite book of all time. I know I will love the second part of IT; I just hope it is as good as the first part since it will mainly be dealing with the adult's story, but luckily the kids are coming back for flashback scenes. --------------------------------------------------- #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #booklove #booklover #bookaddict #bookcollector #books #horror #horrorfilm #horrormovie #horrorfan #horrornerd #horrorfilms #horrorgeek #horrorgram #horrorobsessed #horrorcollector #horrorcommunity #stephenking #it #itnovel #itmovie #pennywise #horroraddict #horrorjunkie #weallfloatdownhere

Happy Saturday! 🎄 What have you been up to today? I've finished almost all of my Christmas shopping except for a few things for my husband, so I've started wrapping everything. This is my favourite part of Christmas 🎁😍 I also want to share this book I received from @canongatebooks last week. It's not published until June so I'm going to hold off on reading it for a while but it sounds fantastic! Synopsis: "After the Sickness has killed off her parents, and the bombs have fallen on the last safe cities, Monster emerges from the arctic vault which has kept her alive. When she washes up on the coast of Scotland, everyone she knows is dead, and she believes she is alone in an empty world. Monster begins the long walk south, scavenging and learning the contours of this familiar land made new. Slowly, piece by piece, she begins to rebuild a life. Until, one day, she finds a girl: feral, and ready to be taught all that Monster knows. Changing her own name to Mother, Monster names the child after herself. As young Monster learns from Mother, she also discovers her own desires, realising that she wants very different things to the woman who made, but did not create, her. Inspired by Robinson Crusoe and Frankenstein, My Name is Monster is a novel about power, about the things that society leaves imprinted on us when the rules no longer apply, and about the strength and the danger of a mother’s love." . . . . . #xenatineshoutout #mustlovebooks #decemberbookstagram #dumbledoresbookisharmy #bestbookishpic #unitedbookstagram #bookstagram #becauseofreading #mynameismonster #fortheloveofbooks #bookdragon #bookishpeepsies #bookstoread #fortheloveofreading #bookstagramireland #asecondofwhimsey #booksfordays #readreadread #2019books #bookpics #booksonbooks #bookstack #bookobsessed #beautifulbooks #bookfanatic #bookcollector #bookphotography #christmasbookstagram #ohchristmastree #bookishchristmas
🎄⁣ #12BooksOfChristmas ⁣ ⁣ On the forth day of Christmas, J. R. R Tolkien gave to me:⁣ ⁣ The Hobbit! ⁣ ⁣ When I was about 10 years old, my older brother @phillyeli brought The Hobbit home from the library. I'd never heard of it before but after he finished it he passed it on to me saying I would like it. ⁣ He was right. ⁣ I often cite the 'Riddles in the Dark' chapter, where Gollum challenges Bilbo to a game of wits with Bilbo's life as the prize, as one of my favourites in all literature. It's so fraught and imaginative and even though it's not 'action packed' the tension is palpable.⁣ This, of course, led on to devouring The Lord of the Rings and being blown away by the film trilogy (which my brother and I still quote endlessly to this day, which my parents love 😉! )⁣ ⁣ The Hobbit is definitely one of the best books that was ever recommended to me and it shaped my reading habits for life. ⁣ 🎄⁣ What are the best books you've had recommended to you? ⁣ 🎄⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ #thehobbit #lordoftherings #jrrtolkien #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #bookcover #booksofinstagram #bookishfeatures #bookinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bibliophile #bookworm #bookcommunity #bookobssesed #booknerds #booksofig #booksbooksbooks #bookcollector #beautifulbooks #prettybooks #bookpic #bookstagramUK #bibliogram #readingcommunity #readingmood #voraciousreader #bearreads #bookdevourer
📝What is the most epic romance you have ever read? 📚 Don’t need any more caption or explanation, The Bronze Horseman series by @paullinasimons is the most epic historical romance I have ever and will ever read. These three books are my favourite books of ALL TIME. Set in WWII Russia and America and spans 60 years to present time, Alexander Barrington and Tatiana Metonova’s love story will stay with me forever and ever. Please enjoy a small extract from book1 The Bronze Horseman below. 📚 “Soldier! Let me cradle your head and caress your face, let me kiss your dear sweet lips and cry across the seas and whisper through the icy Russian grass how I feel for you… Luga, Ladoga, Leningrad, Lazarevo… Alexander, once you carried me, and now I carry you. Into my eternity, now I carry you. Through Finland, through Sweden, to America, hand outstretched, I stand and limp forward, the galloping steed black and riderless in my wake. Your heart, your rifle, they will comfort me, they’ll be my cradle and my grave. Lazarevo drips you into my soul, dawn drop by moonlight drop from the river Kama. When you look for me, look for me there, because that’s where I will be all the days of my life.” 📚 #thebronzehorseman #tatianaandalexander #thesummergarden #wwiiromance #historicalromance #beautifulbooks #bookaccount #epicromance #bookcollector
Layered up so I can sit outside and read, while the Small Furry Carnivorous Mammal explores the leaves on the balcony.. It's just warm enough to enjoy a book and cigar before the rain sneaks back in this evening. #bookstagram #instabook #booksofinstagram #books #reading #book #bookcollection #bookcollecting #darkstarsafari #paultheroux #travelbook #travelbooks #bookcollector #homelibrary #literature #foliosociety #bookshelf #booklover #booknerd #booklove #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookaholic #ilovebooks #readmore #readmorebooks #bookclub #nonfiction #alwaysreading #greatreads
Hey bookstagram! Just want to say I know I haven’t been as active lately! I apologise to anyone who’s not ok with this! But my “real” life has been pretty hectic lately!😩 I feel about as dark and twisty as old mate Salazar! 🖤 But for real I am trying to get back to normal and even managed to take some new pictures! Yay! 🖤 • • Qotd: what HP house are you in do you love it? Did you originally want something else? 🤔 • • #adelaideblogger #readingtime #bibliophile #jkrowling #slytherin #harrypotter #housepride #twirlingpages #openbook #bookcollector #bookobsessed #ausbookishfeatures #bookblogger #ausyabloggers
No one writes a series quite like Sarah J. Maas. The moment I finished Empire of Storms, I needed to know how the Throne of Glass series ended. And it was a long wait for Kingdom of Ash. - I have never encountered a character like Aelin in any book; she’s full of contradictions, yet still a queen filled with an unimaginable, unwavering strength. I love all of the side characters in this series as if each book is wholly about them, and I could barely get through the story fast enough, terrified for their well-being with each turning page. - That being said, I liked the book, but didn’t love it as I had Empire of Storms or some of its predecessors. A lot needed to happen in this finale, so the book accomplished everything it needed to, but I have so many different reactions to this story that it’s hard for me to process all my emotions. I have a full review coming soon (I’m laptop-less at the moment), but if you’ve read Kingdom of Ash, or any of his series, please tell me your thoughts! . . . . . .
