Friday, take care of yourself. And if you feel you can't, ask someone to help you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ———————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "My dark days made me strong. Or maybe I already was strong, and they made me prove it."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ———————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many beautiful stories told. Far away lands, dashing heros, and intelligent heroines. But the books that mean the most can also be the stories most realistic.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our reality is that we don't talk enough about mental illness, and about how we truly feel. We don't reach out when we should, and just smile, nod and say it's fine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stories like Emory Lord's When We Collided bring light to those dark moments, and even if the matter isn't so pretty, it can be told beautifully.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ———————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Q: How are you really doing?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📖: When We Collided by Emery Lord | Bloomsbury⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #janbookstagram19 : cozy vibes⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #hellobookchelle #minimalgram #booksandminimalism #igreads #readingismagic #fromabove #flatlaytoday #visualscollective #bookphotography #readerlife #ipreview #mindtheminimal #creativeminimalism #goodreads #readersofinstagram #planoly #bloomsbury #emerylord #whenwecollided
«Быть дураком, эгоистом и обладать хорошим здоровьем — вот три условия, необходимые для того, чтобы быть счастливым. Но если первого из них не хватает, то остальные бесполезны» ⠀ Гюстав Флобер «Госпожа Бовари» Впервые напечатана в 1856г. Один из шедевров мировой литературы. ⠀ В добропорядочном обществе процветают эгоизм, черствость, хитрость и изворотливость. Духовный крах, финансовый крах и трагическая развязка. ⠀ После выхода книги Флобер привлечен к суду за «оскорбление общественной морали, религии и добрых нравов». Критиков возмущает натурализм (почитали бы они современную литературу ☺️). ⠀ Приговор суда снимает обвинения, но Флобер ошеломлен: «..о чем же можно писать, если столь безобидное создание, если бедная моя госпожа Бовари была схвачена за волосы и, словно гулящая девка, доставлена в исправительную полицию?» ⠀ Всего через полвека, отмечая столетие со дня рождения писателя, Гюстава Флобера назовут «великим моралистом XIX века, которого Республика имеет честь прославлять» ⠀ Один из сильнейших психологических романов. Автор не морализирует. Его герои сосредоточены на материальной стороне жизни и верят только в общепринятые ценности. Не так ли и мы живем?
👶 Leitura×Maternidade 👶 Quando um bebê nasce, a atenção é toda voltada à eles. É a fase de descobrimento, de tudo (amamentação, mamadas, choro, cólicas, sono, banho, fralda...), com a chegada desse pacotinho de amor💘! Após essa fase, vem o processo de adaptação (conseguimos conciliar o tempo da mãe com o bebê). É nesse espaço de tempo que conseguimos voltar aos poucos à nossa rotina! Foi nesse período de tempo que recomecei as leituras 📖! Minha opção foi em reler livros que estavam na minha lista de releitura. Já que não havia longos períodos para se dedicar a um livro novo (leitura pela primeira vez). Com isso aproveitei para diminuir minha lista de "vale a pena ler denovo" 😊! Reler: se mata a saudade dos personagens, se consegue ler série na sequência (sem interrupção) e não precisa ficar atenta aos detalhes. Mas mesmo assim a leitura te leva a mesma magia da primeira vez✨! Reader: @giani_maximila #lernamaternidade #amigaseleitoras #readers #livros #booksig #igliterario #readerlife
So today for #finnfuryrevolution (which I have been really bad at posting for) it’s books about war and fighting and one of the only books I have with a war or fighting is Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicles. (I own all the others in the series on Kindle). Scarlet was my favorite in the series though so when I found this copy at a used bookstore I snatched it up. I think the Lunar Chronicles was one of the first YA series that I really got into it. Marissa Meyer’s series was what helped make me fall in love with YA science fiction, fantasy *and* retelling. All of her characters are so amazing and unique and her Lunar Chronicles world is so vast and detailed and amazing! I’ll have to reread the series this year some time cuz I haven’t read the books in so long! ———————————————————————— #bookstagrammer #booklove #bookstagram #scarlet #scarletandwolf #thelunarchronicles #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bookishlove #bookshelf #shelfie #bookalicious #bookaddict #bookobsessed #readerlife #readersofinstagram #marissameyer #scifi #lunarchronicles #warandfighting

There are lots of arms, groping for you. They could bite you, but they won´t, if you do not allow. Remember: You have the whole control. If you smile down to those arms, if you smile at those people, they won´t come back to you. But if you show them your weakness, you won´t grow above them and those people will bring you to fall. That´s not your goal. If it´s difficult: Keep going. Let your mind be free, but not your back. It´s good fi it´s difficult, because you work hard. And it´s good if people hate you, because it means you are doing something. They wouldn´t hate you, if you you didn´t do something, they alawys wanted to do, or if you are somebody, they always wanted to be. The key is: Ignore haters. They are a sign of success. #haters #success #keepgoing #mindset Hashtags: #bookaddicts #toread #bookpost #bookaccount #readerlife #igbook #bookpassion #youngadultfiction #wrote #wordlove #writersofig #writersfollowwriters #authorpreneur #authorgram #bookwriter #buchempfehlung #buchblogger #buchtipp #büchersüchtig #germanbookstagram #leseliebe #büchernerd #lesenisttoll #autorenwahnsinn #autorenalltag #luca_stories The whole composition and the concept of the feed are owned by luca_stories, year 2018/2019.

QOTD : Are you participating in any readings challenges ? AOTD: Well,besides the Goodreads reading challenge, I am participating the #readingwomenchallenge (@thereadingwomen ) , #finnfuryrevolution and Year of the Asian Reading Challenge on my blog • • • • • #bookblogger #bookflatlay #readersofinstagram #readingchallenge2019 #asianfantasy #booksandseasons #booksandseasons #bookgram #bookphotography #bookobsessed #bookcommunity #unitedbookstagram #booksandcoffee #booksandcoffee #booksbooksbooks #booksbywomen #fantasy #vscobooks #bookstagramfeature #bookstagram #bookhoarder #readerlife #ilovebooks 📚 P.S. I don't have a physical copy of the book Descendant of the Crane, I have just photoshopped it😎
#qotd : Were you ever disappointed by your favourite author's book? . #aotd : I was majorly disappointed with Fredrik Backman's My Grandmother sends her Regards and Apologises. I had super high expectations with him after reading A Man Called Ove but I was terribly disappointed with this one. Read on to know why. 👵🏻 Elsa, a seven year old girl has no friends and is bullied in her school. But, she has an amazing grandmother who boosts her confidence and gives her all the love she deserves. However, her grandmother dies because of cancer but just before dying, she asks Elsa to go on a secret mission, thus making her aware of her well-concealed secrets. 👵🏻 Initially, I found the book to be very interesting and emotional. The insight into a child's life who is bullied were heartbreaking. However, it turned out to be very stretched and unnecessarily complicated. Elsa looks at the world from a different perspective, which is almost fairy-tale like and that's how the story is narrated. It was good at first but too much of unnecessary details and diversions made the entire book boring. The actual plot and the story line was good, as expected from the author but the narrative could have been better and less chaotic. . . #indianbookstagrammer #book #postitfortheaesthetic #communityovercompetition #bookfeaturepage #bookfeatured #booktography #bookobsessed #readmorebooks #readingislife #mybookishfeatures #readerlife #unitedbookstagram #magicofstorytelling #bluebackground #bookrecommendations #booksbooksbooks #bookcommunity #welovebooks #trackmypost #wintertheme #winterbooks #winterwonderlandbooks #handmadecraft #booknerdigans #bookstagraminsta #booksofig #fredrickbackman
Happy Friday! What's your favorite treat yo self treat?🌠 I am absolutely in love with @nerdy.post !! In love. In fact, my Grishaverse box arrived yesterday!!!! It's AMAZING. I can't wait to share it with you but hoping more people get theirs so I don't spoil it for anyone. But I'm thinking an unboxing pic is due for tomorrow! 🌠 This print is from one of her other boxes! One of my favorite features of this box is the build your own box feature. It's perfect for someone like me who missed some boxes because I can still get some of the prints and bookmarks. Perfect. 🌠 Big day tomorrow, @noahbearsmith and I are hosting a DnD session! First time hosting, nee characters and campaign. So excuse me while I slip into host mode! Gotta get everything ready! What are you up to this weekend? 🌠 Sting necklace from @sweetmelissasgiftsetc ! 🌠 #bookstagram #nerdypost #nerdypostunboxed #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookworm #bookowl #bookdragon #bookpirate #bookish #bibliophile #bookobsessed #booknerd #booknerdigan #lotr #lordoftherings #gandalf #bookishquotes #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #reader #readerlife #instabook #totalbooknerd #igreads
I discovered Alecheim during my Isaac Babel research. My favorite story by Sholem Aleichem is Back from the Draft. Though marked with sarcastic humor, it was emotional to visualize a man negotiating for his son to not be drafted 😢. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sholemaleichem #yiddish #bookstagram #reader #readercommunity #bibliophile #booklover #bookers #jewish #draft #yiddishliterature #writer #writing #jewishwriters #writingcommunity #readerlife
From my Instagram-name, you have probably guessed that I love music. I have always had a big passion for music and sound, thus also speech. During my years at uni, I studied both the English language, literature, and history along with Musicology, and I have always been very interested in how to use the voice - both in terms of speech sounds, but even more importantly, in singing. Aarhus Universitetsforlag publishes these beautiful, tiny books called "Tænkepauser" ("Reflections"), which gives a brief introduction to a certain subject. Here are three with subjects close to my heart: The voice, sound, and language. 🎶🔊🗣️ #tænkepause #aarhusuniversitetsforlag #bøger #bookish #sprog #language #stemmen #voice #lyd #sound #books #bookstagram #reader #readerlife #rradersofinstagram #igreads #igbooks
||It is only a novel... or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language.|| ~Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey 📚🔍📷☕🎧🎵 ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ Mark Twain once described classic novels as "a book which people praise and don't read.", sadly this is the ugly truth 📗📘📙 Authors have been conveying their thoughts and stories into words of literature for ages.. Some authors' books have survived and are still acknowledged as timeless pieces of literature for having intriguing plot device and compelling characters ☆ 📙📗📘 Usually classics can be just as entertaining and engaging as our modern literature.. The terminology might be unfamiliar and outdated but isn't that necessary to comprehend and learn more about the time they were written in ☆ 📘📗📙 I wouldn't describe myself as a classic reader but someone who finds great pleasure in reading intellectually and aesthetically pleasing books.. There are books that I've read cuz' of their scientific significance or due to my interest in a certain historical era ☆ 📗📙📘 Long story short, classics shouldn't be tossed away and I think they should appreciated more.. I'm not trying to force anybody to read classics cuz' they 'have' to, but rather to explore the origins of certain literature mythologies, ancient plot devices and interesting terminologies and see how the evolved over time ❤ Do you read classics cuz they interest you or cuz you feel like you kinda have to? ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ #bookblogger #littlestoriesofmylife #beautifulmatters #beautyofstillmoments #moodygrams #seekinspirecreate #livemoremagic #liveinthemoment #livethelittlethings #bookcommunity #booktography #viewfromabove #kimmersbooks #bookishfeatures #alliseeispretty #allthebeautifulthings #petitejoys #readerlife #booksbooksbooks #momentsofchic #simplethingsmadebeautiful #bibliophile #bookphotography #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #prettylittlethings #instamoment #postitfortheaesthetics #vintagelife

How many bookmarks are too many bookmarks 🤷🏼‍♀️ The correct answer is there can never be too many because I want them all 😆 . Have you seen all the new things popping up over on @sjwonderlandz Etsy shop? Not only does she have a ton of gorgeous bookmarks but she has prints, pins, wooden bookmarks, and now even mugs 🙌🏻 I recently became a winter rep for her and am so excited to be able to share a discount code with all of you so you can become just as obsessed as I am with all of her beautiful items. She has everything from Harry Potter to Gilmore Girls and even will work with you to make custom items (she seriously comes up with the neatest designs - check out the ones she made for @blackheartreads and #awesomeAFbuddyreads bc they turned out amazing)! . My code JENN10 will save you 10% on each item in her shop (not including items already on sale). She just recently listed January/February exclusive prints so be sure to check those out before they are gone.
"I wanna take a ride through the Indigo Over the sunset in Mexico Open my eyes, no more goodbyes I still see you" 💙 We are closing in on the end of the rainbow 😱😱 But that doesn’t mean I can’t prolong it just a bit more 😏 💙 Friday is finally upon us my friends. Let’s all celebrate 🥳🥳 💙 Any fun plans for the weekend? It’s a three day one for me 🙌🏻 But it’s supposed to snow buckets so I will probably spend most of it at home, doing school work and maybe sneaking in some reading. Honestly, nothing could sound better after such a long week! I’m looking forward to it 🤗 ——————— #spinningsilver #naominovik #bookgeek #bookcommunity #bookphoto #bookaesthetic #booksofig #bookgram #readersofig #readergram #instareads #readerlife

Hi bookworms! 🐛 . The Winter of the Witch finally came out! Last week I received my pre-order from Bookdepository and it is so beautiful 😍😍 Here is the entire series in a row, but unfortunately they don't match 😞 I got the first book in a paperback and then it turns out that I love the series! So annoying! Maybe one day I'll buy the first one in hardcover as well but there are so many books to buy, it's difficult to justify to myself 😅. . . I hope I get to it relatively soon, but I first want to finish Harry Potter and the half-blood prince and I also still have to read Beartown for book club! Those reader struggles 😅. .

Şems'in Konya'dan ayrılması Mevlana'yı çok üzmüştü. Her gelen yolcuya onu soruyor, her giden yolcuyla haber gönderiyor, ümitle Şems'ten haber almayı bekliyordu.. Mevlana'nın Şems'in gidişine böylesine üzülmesini anlamayanlar Mevlâna'ya 'Sen, Şems'ten evvel de bilgisinden şüphe duyulmayan biriydin. Sen Şems'ten ne öğrendin de onun gidişi bu kadar perişan etti seni. Boyle kendini parçalıyorsun.' diye soruyorlardı. Mevlâna, "Şems'e rastlamadan  önce üşüdüğüm zaman ısınıyordum, ama Şems'ten sonra ısınamıyorum. Çünkü O bana birşey öğretti 'yeryüzünde bir kişi  üşüyorsa sen ısınma hakkına sahip degilsin.' Eskiden açken çorba içince doyardım ama şimdi doyamıyorum. Çünkü yine biliyorum ki yeryüzünde aç kimseler var. İşte Şems bana bunu öğretti."

My #currentread is #theunabridgedjournalsofsylviaplath I used to be highly skeptical of Plath’s work before as I associated it with morbidity and I thought she’s one of those people who get famous because of their controversial suicide story. But I fell in love with her craft when I read ‘The Bell Jar’. Her writing is really introspective. Her poems equally reflective. Plath was only 30 when she died. She left behind one of the most essential pieces of literature and assimilation of her thoughts. I recommend you to read her book(s) at least once in your lifetime. It would open up your mind to a whole new realm of possibilities. A true creative genius, my literary hero. #readersofinstagram #bookcommunity #bookstagram #book #books #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookworm #bookaholic #bookphotography #bookish #bookhoarder #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksbooksbooks #read #reading #reads #readers #reader #readersofinstagram #readerlife #readersofig #betterreadschallenge #goodreadschallenge

Hoje eu resolvi trazer uma indicação que eu acredito que seja da minha escritora favorita, @megan__maxwell. Os Príncipes Encantados também viram Sapos foi publicado pela @editorasuma . Para você que não saiu da série Peça me o que quiser, eu super recomendo ler outras histórias da autora, como essa que não tem nada de clichê e se parece muito com a vida real. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SINOPSE: Kate e Sam se conheceram muito jovens, durante férias de verão na Califórnia e se apaixonaram à primeira vista. O amor entre eles supera o tempo e a distância e, ao terminarem a faculdade, ele a pede em casamento. Os anos se passam e o casal parece ter construído a vida perfeita. Eles têm uma carreira de sucesso, duas filhas lindas e continuam apaixonados. Sam, que cresceu em um orfanato, conseguiu com Kate tudo o que sempre quis: uma grande família. Até que um telefonema muda tudo...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀MINHA OPINIÃO: Esse livro é fantástico, fala sobre infidelidade, segundas chances e amor. Mostra o quanto as aparências enganam e que tudo tem um porquê. Lembra que em problemas no relacionamento, ambos tem culpa, e o fato de não compreender isso, coloca o amor à prova. No entanto se há amor, há a possibilidade de perdão? Não tenho muito a dizer que não seja apenas: LEIAM! Tenho certeza que vocês vão gostar.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reader: @jessruiiva ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #meganmaxwell #sumadeletras #igliterario #readers #livros #amoler #amigaseleitoras #livroseleitura #readerlife
What's your current read? . . I'm currently reading Imprison the sky by @acgaughen the 2nd book of the Elementae series. I love the 1st book so much that I plucked the courage to email the publisher to request an ARC. And to my surprise, it was granted??? 🙀😳 . . I'm only 40% into the book so far but I have to say, I'm already loving it! This series is honestly one of the best elemental theme books I've read in a long time so I'm super excited that I get to read book 2. I can't wait to write a full review once I'm finished with the book 😆 just to give you guys a hint of what the book is about here's my short summary of what happened so far: . Wind elemental + a ship hybrid with a plane + badass captain + slaves + secret islands + pirates + family + sexual tensioooon. . . ☀ #gmbingochallenge Tidemakers: Elements. ☀ #bamjanuary19 Day 18. Book with Magic. ☀ #bibliowivesjan19 Day 18. TGIF (bookish character you'd party with). ☀ #bookqueensjan19 Day 18. Character that deserves their own book.
Nightlight with his literature namesake from the Guardians series by William Joyce. <3 We started this series in November and have been delighted by it. The kids beg to read them. They are full of beautiful illustrations, heart, adventure, danger and love. When we knew we were adopting this fluffy white beastie, we knew his name had to be a nod from this time in our lives, reading books that we all love so well.
Hello booklovers!! . Q- Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? . . . My plans are to go to the library today!! I haven’t been in awhile and just want to look around. Most of my YA fantasy novels come from there & I get my romance from kindle. I requested two audiobooks from them and I’m patiently waiting. 😬😬 I’ve seen a TON of posts about The Cruel Prince so I hopefully I get my hands on that! . . . Does your library have an app that you take advantage of? I only recently got mine after a friend mentioned it ☺️ . . . #booksofinstagram #bookaddiction #bookaholics #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookobsessed #bookstack #bookworm #booknerd #booknerdigan #booklover #bookish #booklove #booklife #booklit #ilovereading #bookstagrammer #bookstoread #fiction #readersofinstagram #readerlife
[ 18.01.19 ] . . . [ #toptenTBR del 2019 ] . . . #9 Il miglio verde, anche se in generale direi più libri di Stephen King ⚡ . . . Ieri sera ho finito Le notti bianche di Dostoevskij, mi ha stupita 💫 adesso però per finire il libro mi manca la cronaca di Pietroburgo, penso di leggerla oggi. . . . #quotd Avete letto Il miglio verde?
The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm by @christopher_paolini : 5/5 ⭐s _________________________________________ Okay, let me start of by saying....I LOVED THIS LITTLE BOOK SO MUCH!! From the moment I cracked open the book, I got the sweetest whiff of nostalgia that stayed with me until I flipped to the last page. I did not realize until last night just how much I missed Eragon and his world. And Christopher's writing!! It's stunning. I finished this book in one sitting, and almost turned around to read it over again. Yes, it's just a collection of short stories, but it is officially my favorite book I've read in 2019 so far. Which is really saying something, considering I read Vengeful and The Martain this month. If anyone out there was on the fence about reading this wee gem, jump off and race to your nearest bookstore. It's magical and beautiful and nostalgic, and it...hints at things to come.
Just finished When I’m Gone by Abbi Glines. God, I felt refreshed after reading this. Too much YA and Fantasy read could really drain the life out of you sometimes. Because let’s be honest, some YA & fantasy reads today got a very complicated plots and world building you just literally have to go back with some phrases and pray you got it the second time around. Hahaha! But hey! Still a fan of YA & fantasy reads. ❤️ #bookshelf #bibliophile #bookstagram #booknerd #bookphotography #bookish #bookhaul #igreads #yabooks #fictionreads #book #bookporn #bookish #bookaddict #bookishness #booknerdigans #goodreads #bookstagramfeature #bookhoarder #bookgram #readerlife #readeveryday #bookgeek #readersofinstagram #bookcommunity
"You think that killing millions of people for the crimes of a few is going to be the answer to all your problems? Okay, so a group of people have resorted to terrorism, and your solution is to blow up everyone there? Just because they may have a culture different to yours, speak a language that you're unfamiliar with, live according to a faith that differs from your own does not rule out the fact that they are still people.They are real people, men, women, children, who hate the violence and conflict that erupts every hour of the day!" . . . Operation Dard and Devotion! A novel that made us all realize and acknowledge the power that Wattpad as a story-telling platform offers to anyone who seeks it. ODAD, as we call it, is the most influential and eye-opening story I've come across on wattpad. ODAD talks about terrorism and religion, yesss the two things that are so complicated or in our case so entangled that talking about one can not be imagined without mentioning the other. Yet, it does not only talk about them but also tries to highlight the difference between them. What makes this story even more interesting is the reality that the author has put in its scenes which makes it hard to differentiate between reality and fiction. It is a story of love, hope, fear, revenge, and redemption. ODAD is about a girl who gets kidnapped by a group of terrorists and well you can imagine what happens next, just make that 3 times worse. . . Ps: I didn’t finished this book because I was too scared of the ending and the devastation it’s bound to cause. . QOTD: Is there any book you didn’t finish? And why? . . #bookstagram #bookstagrampak #books #epicreads #universalbooks #bookworms #bookshelfs #bibliophile #booknerd #novels #readersblock #reading #readersofinstagram #readerlife #readersofinstagram #literature #literaturequotes #fiction #selflove #selflovequotes #motivationalquotes #coffee #kimmersbooks #pakistanireadersinitiative #wattpad #wattpadstories #odad
We got that snow we were looking for this week, and they’re calling for more! This winter chick is not complaining 👌🏻 . . Book 3 is officially going into editing this week, and I am so excited about it! It’s going to be very different from the first two, but I had a blast writing it! More info to come soon! 😬❄️❤️ 📚
Thank you @authorbrendanovak and your PR people for gifting me an E-ARC of #beforewewerestrangers I saw this book a few months ago, so I was really excited to read it. I enjoyed the pace of this book, and the character development. I read a lot of books of this genre, so books have to work hard to stand out to me. BWWS did a great job. I loved the narrative. This is only my second Brenda Novak book, and I am excited for more! 💜💜💜 #bookgram #avidreader #readingislife #bookaddict #readerlife #readreadread #readgoodbooks #bookishlife #bookhoarder #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #goodreads #bookspines #amreading #instablogger #readallthebooks #alwaysreading #allthebooks #read #booknerd #mustread #booklover #thriller #BrendaNovak #fiction
An animal you wanna have as a pet?🤗 A weird one? . I would love a penguin, lie seriously they are so adorable 😂! Also an elephant, a baby elephant, that would be great 😊😂.
Currently reading ‘The Art Of Racing In The Rain’ by Garth Stein and Oh My God it is an absolute delight!! 😭😍 I might be a little biased being a dog parent and all that but this really is the perfect book for anyone who knows that compassion isn’t only for humans. Please give it a read if you have not already. @muffytales I can’t thank you enough ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookishfeatures #mybookfeatures #bookishlove #bookblog #beautifulbooks #bookblog #readersofinstagram #igreads #slaytheflatlay #bookishlife #eveningtea #readerlife #bookworm #bookclub #bibliophile #currentlyreading #theartofracingintherain #garthstein #bookrecommendations #bookstagramindia #reads #bookblogger #bookstafam #funkopop #funkophotoaday #funkomania #bookstagrammer #instabook #bookphotography
It's friday! I'm so ready to actually have the time to finish reading The Wicked King! I'm trying to prepare for the book hangover that's evidently going to happen when I'm done. 😂 • • QOTD:What is the next book on your TBR list? • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #bookish #book #bookworm #bookaholic #bookhoarder #bookshelf #bookshelves #read #reader #readersofinstagram #readerlife #bookreaders #readmorebooks #readmore #shelfie #wintersong #thelightbetweenworlds #bookhangover
Book review : Less by Andrew Sean Greer . . Book 11 of 2019 . A book that has won a prize in 2018 #cowreadingchallenge2019 ( my city shortens to COW :) )... Also according to Instagram , I'm the only person in the world participating haha). . With this book, Greer won the Pulitzer last year . Due to my past experiences with literary prize winners and the mixed reviews of it around, I've been book procrastinating it and it has been pushed back to the bottom of the TBR pile a few times. . I'm not sure what I was worried about , it was very readable ! The characters even had names! ( I'm looking at you Milkman haha). . Arthur Less is about to turn 50, his writing career has stalled, his on and off fling about to get married. He has found a way to put his head in the sand for both events by accepting every overseas work propositions coming his way and thus start Arthur Less' world tour . . As I said there has been some mixed reviews, it won the Pulitzer and a lot of people found it absolutely hilarious while others called it pretentious and boring. . I ended up somewhere in the middle. I had a few laugh at loud chuckles . Imagine : An Idiot Abroad crossed with Eat, Pray , love. I also had a few eye rolls . Yes, he's mocking the life of a writer yet the teasing feels affected, like a big inside false joke for the high brow literary world. . Greer is clearly talented though. He created quite an unlikeable, wishy washy, pitiful , self absorbed character that ended up winning me over. . By the end of this short ( 270 pages) novel as I was cheering Less on and was more than satisfied by the ending. . 3.5/5 . Have you read it? What did you think? Do you enjoy reading Pulitzer's winners? . #bookreview #less #pulitzerprize #pulitzerprizewinner #andrewseangreer #readmorebooks #mmdchallenge #diversebooks #literaryfiction #libraryaddict #readingaddict #aussiereader #aussiebookstagrammer #aussiebookworm #bookreviewer #bookporn #ilovereading #ilovereadingbooks #bibliophile #bookish #bookaddict #readerlife #readersofinstagram #readmorebooks #readinggoals
2019.03: Des histoires de musique et une de silence – Collectif sous la direction de Marie-Chantale Gariépy [Productions Somme toute, Collection Tête première]. 7 nouvelles abordant la thématique de la musique. Pas besoin d’être musicien pour apprécier ce livre. Sans aucun doute la nouvelle de Michel-Olivier Gasse qui m’a le plus accrochée. On passe un moment dans le centre-ville de Sherbrooke dans une petite boutique de disques. Rencontre entre deux adeptes de jazz qui conversent de leur amour pour ce style musical.
Sper că ați avut o săptămână bună și vă doresc un wekeend plăcut. Eu m-am îmbolnăvit și am stat acasă. Și am zis să citesc, dar nu pot. Nu știu dacă vi s-a întâmplat vreodată, să nu puteți citi nimic pentru că sunteți setați pe o carte. În capul meu numai volumul trei din „trei coroane întunecate” e, și e clar, sunt condamnată ca până nu citesc acea carte, sa nu pot sa citesc altceva #bookcommunity #bookgestante #bookings #carte #bookstack #bookobsessed #threedarkcrowns #bookhoarder #booktography #readerlife #mybookfeatures #bookbinding #bookphoto #bookworms #bookgestante #cititoripasionati
Word of the Day: Characterization . Stein on Writing, Chapter 4: Making Fascinating People 🏃🏻‍♀️🧖🏼‍♀️🕺🏻🕴🏽🧟‍♂️🧚🏼‍♀️ . In stating the obvious, our emotions are not affected by a story in a major way unless we are devoted to the characters. Our characters must come first, and we must learn not to tell our readers who a character is, but show them. Characterize through an action. . ▶️ Telling: Pamela is skinny. ⏭ Showing: Pamela stood sideways so everyone could see just how thin she was. . Or how about exaggeration? ▶️ Telling: Nora was overweight. ⏯ Showing: Nora weighed three tons naked. . Oversimplified examples, yes, but the point is clear. Let’s try a creative exercise. Can you describe yourself through characterization by action? 😜 . I’ll go first! . ▶️ Telling: Try and guess what I’m telling you about myself. 🙈 ⏯ Showing: Bernadette sat down at the table and pulled the sanitizer from her purse, quickly saturating her hands with the slimy substance. She inspected both forks and, as the waitress passed, asked to exchange the forks for a pair that hadn’t been left unattended for god knows how long. She just hoped no one would try to snatch anything off her plate or breathe on her food as they asked for “just a taste.” Another dinner with savages. . . . #writersden #instawriter #writingtips #writer #writerswrite #writingofig #iamwriting #artisticvision #writingmystory #read #instareads #readersofig #readerlife #constantreader #readersgonnaread #readerforlife #iamreading #instabookstagram #bookstagram #bookaholic #bibliophile #bookster #publisher #fictionalcharacters #funwithwords #thenextchapter #nonfictionbooks #unedited #wip #novelist

Tem coisa melhor do que ganhar presente sem nenhum motivo específico? Hoje fui surpreendida com esse livro, que me foi enviado por uma amiga muito querida! / There's nothing better than getting a gift without any specific reasons!

i’m banana cake
Picked up a few bookish goodies today. I’ve never read any Sarah J. Maas, but when my friend @krisreadsbooks tells me to buy a book, I buy it. There are only a handful of people who know my taste well enough that I accept all of their book recommendations implicitly. Do you have any kindred book spirits who always know if a book is for you or not?
