WEDNESDAY HUGS, BOOKIES— QOTD: What are some of your favorite retellings? 🐚 Frances Harding’s latest fantasy adventure, DEEPLIGHT (#gifted @panmacmillansakids), is Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea meets Frankenstein. The gods are dead. Decades ago, they turned on one another and tore each other apart. Nobody knows why. But are they really gone forever? 🐚 When 15-year-old Hark finds the still-beating heart of a ter rifying deity, he risks everything to keep it out of the hands of smugglers, military scientists, and a secret fanatical cult so that he can use it to save the life of his best friend, Jelt. But with the heart, Jelt gradually and eerily transforms. How long should Hark stay loyal to his friend when he's becoming a monster - and what is Hark willing to sacrifice to save him? . #panmacmillan #deeplight #franceshardinge #yafantasy #yaretelling
@bloomsburypublishing #partner What was the last nonfiction book you read? . If you only read one book about politics in the US next year, let it be ONE PERSON, NO VOTE. In this brilliant critique of American democracy today, Carol Anderson condemns the blatant voter suppression that runs rampant in our country, which disproportionately affects students and communities of color. It’s disheartening to be sure, but it’s so valuable because she also documents the many ways we have to fight back against the racism and corruption that has plagued our elections for decades. . And just in case you need any more proof of how powerful this book is, I am TERRIFIED of small talk and yet here I am, solemnly pledging to take part in at least one voter registration drive next year. 😱 . Make sure to check out @rockthevote if you have any questions about how to register, what your rights are, and how to spread the word. 💪🏻 . (And a special shoutout to all of my friends in the UK who are gearing up for their own monumental vote today. ♥️) . #onepersonnovote #carolanderson
🖤How was your holiday (Thanksgiving)? • I am currently pulling out all the Christmas decorations and the tree...the moment I have been waiting for all year long - no joke. I clean the house, decorate, and bake all while listening to Christmas music. It’s literally the happiest feeling ever. Better yet the hubster is at work so no one to dictate my decorating skills 💁🏽‍♀️. • • • • • • • • #kerrimaniscalco #stalkingjacktheripper #fictionbooks #favoritebookseries #bookadict #booksofig #bookishescapes #bookshelves #shelfiesaturday #bookshelfgoals #bookishgirl #bookcommunity #instareads #ireadeverywhere #igbookstagram #christmastimeiscoming #bookfandom #prettybooks #bookcollection #bookhoarder #readersgonnaread #readingya #bookrecs #mybookfeatures

HEY THERE, BOOKIES— QOTD: What are some of your favorite sequels? . You know when you love a book so much that, on the one hand, you can’t imagine anything better than a sequel, and, on the other, you’re scaaaared of how it’ll compare to book one? Yes, we bookies are a complex and often paradoxical bunch. . Well, I’m happy to report, POSTSCRIPT is suuuuuch a worthy sequel, with a storyline that stands all on its own and will tug at and possibly tear a heartstring or two. I’ve cried. No doubt, I’ll need more tissues before the end. . #postscript #ceciliaahern #jonathanballpublishers
{ Je voudrais lui dire ses quatre vérités, tout lui déballer, mettre les points sur les i. Mais toutes les pensées cohérentes que je pouvais avoir s’envolent en fumée lorsque nos regards se croisent. } . Hello 💫 Sur un coup de tête, j'ai sorti cette romance de ma PAL, et je l'ai dévoré ! La brique que c'était ( en tout cas en poche ) ne m'a pas fait peur, je l'ai commencé, et terminé quelques jours après 🤷🏼‍♀️ Je ne sais pas si c'est le fait que j'ai un grand besoin de romance en ce moment mais ce récit est d'une addictivité folle ! J'ai vraiment adoré les personnages, et pour changer, ceux-ci étaient presque tous attachants et "profonds", malgré que tout tourne toujours un peu trop autour de l'héroïne. Mais comme ils sont tous assez présents tout le long, on s'y attache facilement. J'ai quelques points négatifs qui sont revenus, mais surtout 1 : les prénoms dans les dialogues. J'ai eu un grave soucis avec ça, c'est dingue 😂 Ils ne savaient pas dire une phrase sans dire le prénom de la personne à qui ils s'adressaient ; - Ca va, Lily ? -Oui et toi Cameron ? - Ca va bien Lily. -Tfq demain Cameron ? ( je schématise mais c'était quasi à ce point là ) Ça donne un effet moins réel dans les dialogues et c'est dommage. Après dîtes-moi si ils parlent vraiment comme ça aux USA 😝 . Bref je vous en parlerai mieux sur le blog bientôt 👀 Ma limite de mots commence à arriver 🙈 . Je vous souhaite une bonne session d'examens pour ceux qui en ont et si pas, une bonne fin de semaine ❤ . Vous avez-lu ce livre ? Votre avis ? ( PS : je sais, ma photo est pas terrible mais entre les examens, moi malade et les fêtes qui approchent, je cours 😂 )
I haven’t done two posts in one day for a hot minute, hullo again comrades! . . Let’s talk tattoos. I love tattoos. I don’t care if they make me get disapproving stares from old folks, I guarantee I’ll be covered in them by time I’m their age and I’ll be badass as fuck. This has to be my favourite so far (although I say that about all of my new ones when I get them😅) . . The Shining was the first horror film I watched when I was like, maybe 8 and I fell in love with it - it became my bedtime film and I’d watch it every night. When I read the book? Well my love for the story was cemented and it’s forever stayed my favourite film AND book (which is a rarity amongst King fans) and I’m so happy I have my lil twins on my arm😍 . . Do you have any book/film related tattoos? . . . . . .  #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booklover#booknerd#bookblogger#bookworm#bookaddict#bookish#bookishfeatures#instabook#igreads#booksofinstagram#reader#reading#bibliophile#bookporn#bookaholic#booknerdigans#bookcollection#lovereading#lovebooks#bookstagramcommunity#booklife#booklove#mybookfeatures#theshining#constantreader
This is how I feel when I’m picking a new book to read 😁 Currently I’m reading 3 books: chocolate, course of miracles and nonviolent communication.  Q4U: Have you read any of them? Feedback? What are you reading now? 📖  The coolest book store is in LA @thelastbookstorela ❌Don’t forget that I’ll be highlighting your awesome captures in my stories when you use #rocknroamgirl hashtag and spreading the word about your account to others. Let’s grow together 💪🏼
Woah no ones seen this photo before right?! Haha... ha... . . Anyway. DONNA. I hated her so much it physically hurt to read any chapter with her in, which was quite a lot. I already hate this book and she makes it so much worse. The only character that was alright was pre-rabies Cujo and the kid🤷🏻‍♀️ . Today’s quote reminds me of Simpson’s Hit and Run when Bart keeps saying ‘eat asphalt, asphalt eaters’ and I always thought he was saying ‘eat ass, ass eaters’ . . Day 11: For your information ASSMUNCH - unlikable character #theonewiththephotochallenge . . . . .  #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booklover#booknerd#bookblogger#bookworm#bookaddict#bookish#bookishfeatures#instabook#igreads#booksofinstagram#reader#reading#bibliophile#bookporn#bookaholic#booknerdigans#bookcollection#lovereading#lovebooks#bookstagramcommunity#booklife#booklove#mybookfeatures#stephenking#constantreader
. ✒️ RECENZJA ✒️ . . Moja ocena: 9/10 . Za książkę bardzo dziękuję @wydawnictwoniezwykle 💖 . Dante Cavallaro 4 lata temu stracił żonę i teraz w związku z objęciem stanowiska dona chicagowskiej mafii potrzebuje nowej kobiety. Jego nową żoną ma zostać Valentina, która jest wdową. Jej pierwsze małżeństwo było fikcją, o czym nie wie nikt. Jej pierwszy mąż Antonio był gejem i kochał kogoś spoza środowiska mafijnego. Valentina nawet po jego śmierci nie ujawiła tej tajemnicy nikomu, aby nie narażać dobrego imienia zmarłego, a także chronić samą siebie. Niestety wszystko wyda się, gdy przyjdzie jej skonsumować małżeństwo z Dantem. Dante ma 36 lat i wzbudza strach i szacunek w środowisku mafijnym. Zawsze dostaje to, czego chce. Valentina panicznie boi się nocy poślubnej, jednak okazuje się, że niepotrzebnie, gdyż jej nowy mąż nie jest nią w ogóle zainteresowany. Jej serce wciąż należy do zmarłej przed czteroma laty żony. Kobieta bardzo pragnie się do niego zbliżyć, nawet jeżeli on nigdy jej nie pokocha. . . Pierwsza część serii mafijnej @corareillyauthor bardzo przypadła mi do gustu, więc koniecznie musiałam przeczytać jej najnowszą powieść. Czytałam już trochę książek o tej tematyce i stwierdzam, że ta jest jedną z najlepszych na rynku. Autorka świetnie oddaje klimat tego specyficznego środowiska. Fabuła jest bardzo ciekawa i nie da się przy niej nudzić. Książkę pochłonęłam błyskawicznie, bo jest napisana bardzo przystępnym językiem i nie chce się jej w ogóle odkładać. Akcja pędzi przez cały czas i dzieje się naprawdę dużo. Bohaterowie są bardzo zróżnicowani. Valentina jest bardzo odważną młodą kobietą, która wie, czego chce i stara się wytrwale do tego dążyć. Ma świadomość, że ciężko będzie jej zdobyć serce twardego i zimnego Dantego i nie chce zajmować miejsca jego ukochanej zmarłej żony. Pragnie tylko w końcu mieć kogoś, kto by ją

💙◇ P l a t i n u m  E n d ◇💙 • I really love the message this series is trying to send. I'm not gonna lie y'all, I've had a really rough few days but this volume kind of helped me gain a new perspective. I actually almost started crying at one point.😅 This series is really beautiful tho, and the story just keeps getting better. Tsugumi Ohba, you've done it again.🙌 • What series has made you cry? • #manga #mangas #mangabooks #mangacollection #mangacollector #mangastagram #instamanga #mangalove #mangagram #mangaholic #mangaphotography #platinumend #shonenjump #vizmedia #books #bookphotography #bookstagram #bookaholic #bookish #bookworm #bookcollection #bookcommunity #booklover

What movie or tv adaptation made you pick up the book?  Ah, North and South! One of my all time favorite classic adaptations and classic novels. Everyone screams about Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice (I get it, he is broody and has 10,000 pounds a year), but I'll take Mr. Thornton any day. Talk about broody and swoony! He may not have extensive grounds like Pemberly, but I'll take the cold, harsh north for a chance at him. I'm sure there are plenty of things we could do to while away the cold winter nights...such as sipping brandy and sharing passages from our favorite books by the fire. *smiles innocently*  Fun story of my hot mess 20s: I found the BBC mini series of North and South on Netflix one morning when I was so hungover that I could barely move. But watching Richard Armitage as the broody Mr. Thornton cured my hangover. ↡ ↡ ↡ #12daysofbookfaves | The Martian | Favorite Adaptations #bookqueensdec19 | Snowball Fight: Epic Battles #wildadventuresdec19 | Blew you away #bookstababesdec19 | Under the Mistletoe: Favorite Romantic Couple #fearyournovelbennett | Bah Humbug! ↡ ↡ ↡
MONDAY HUGS, BOOKIES— QOTD: What have been some of your favorite books this year? . I’ve got a holiday gift guide for adult fiction titles {up on the blog}. A guide to help you narrow down your own wishlist & pick out that perfect book for someone else. . Like, if you’re shopping for the person who’s always got a book in hand, THE DUTCH HOUSE might totally be the book for you. . Whether you already love historical fiction or are interested in dipping in your toes, The Dutch House is story magic! It’s got a little bit of Cinderella (think evil stepmother) and Paradise Lost (think banishment). At the heart of the story, as well as being the heart of the story, are siblings Danny and Maeve. It’s also the story about a house and the magnetic push-pull relationship that develops between us and the place we call home. . For more recommendations, the complete gift guide is up {ON THE BLOG}.

“Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off - and they are nearly always doing it.” Frances Hodgson Burnett, . . . More Christmasy books.

Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe (2☆) Have you ever been sorely disappointed by a book? I know I have. The last real disappointment was Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe. Unfortunately, his writing style rendered it very hard for me to connect with the protagonist which, which of course, led to my losing interest in the plot altogether. Actually, that's very interesting since I don't know how anyone could have increased the amount of supposedly scandalous occurrences this book offers but I just felt extremely disconnected from the story. In my opinion, the characters weren't fleshed out sufficiently; most of them didn't even have names or any descriptions, for that matter. They seemed to pass and leave no trace whatsoever... Also - can we talk about the massive spoiler the original cover/ title page presents you with?  #bookshelves #bookhaul #bookstore #bookstagram #bookaholic #bibliophile #literature #classicliterature #classics #readerofinstagram #avidreader #novels #bookquotes #booklover #bookblogging #aesthetic #bookshopping #englishlit #englishliterature #aestheticbooks #review #bookcollection #bookcollector #victorianliterature #classicbooks
FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE DECADE! 🙌🏼 When @spinesvines started the #deckthedecade challenge I knew I had to participate. Who wouldn’t want to look back at a decades worth of reading!? I’ve been keeping track since 2010, and the main thing I walked away with is that my reading taste was TERRIBLE in the early part of the decade, and it’s definitely gotten way more diverse and eclectic since I joined bookstagram in 2016. How has your reading changed this decade?? #tbretcrecs
What book(s) are you ending the year with? 📚Any you didn’t get to? I’d planned to do a reread of Wuthering Heights before the end of the year, but I’m not going to be able to fit it in. Instead, I’m finishing Treasure Island, A Christmas Carol, and The Wind in the Willows. 🎄 🎄 🎄 #bibliophile #bibliophilelife #booklover #beautifulbooks #bookcollector #bookcollection #bookishlove #booksofig #bookworm #booknerdigan #booksta #instabooks #literaturelover #bibliomania #bookobsessed #booksofig #lovelybooks #childrensliterature #bookspines #bookpile #seasonseditions #wutheringheights #janeeyre #brontesisters #penguinclassics #wordsworthclassics
Last summer I revisited Weimar and its stunning historic library - although it had previously been burned to the ground, specialists have been able to restore and preserve plenty of the original texts that were open to the public back when Goethe and Schiller were alive. Speaking of Goethe, of course we also visited both his house and his garden. I'll share some snapshots in my stories, in case some of you are interested!

📌 Dicembre 2019 📌 Il Giunco Mormorante, Nina Berberova 📌 61/2019 ⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫/⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪ . . . @culturalpills ne parla molto meglio di me, ma ci provo. . . "In russo c'è immancabilmente una poesia per ogni caso della vita" . . . Settantanove pagine e un Adelphi rosa talmente piccolo da stare dentro il taccuino. Perché è un regalo, perché una sua prima vita l'ha già vissuta, ed è passato tra mani così delicate che ci hanno visto me. Settantanove pagine. Pensi di divorarlo in mezz'ora, e invece a un certo punto chiudi. Assimili. Certe parole devono affondare.  Verrebbe da dire "troppo breve", forse, e invece no. Come il "troppo lungo", coi libri, non esiste. C'è questo frammento, c'è questa dimensione, sospesa forse, dissolta, eppure indimenticabile. La Berberova, che mi ha ricordato un po' temi e profondità, delicatezza e malinconia della Nemirovsky, sceglie di dedicare questo ristretto spazio ad un canto di resilienza, a una delicata protesta, alla volontà di affermazione di qualcosa di elegante, di indifeso. Una voce bassa, ma sicura.  Settantanove pagine e la sensazione di non poter dire abbastanza parole. O di dirne troppe. Racconto di esuli, di frammenti di identità sparpagliati per tutta Europa. Di appartenenze impossibili e di nostalgie lancinanti. Di questa poesia che è un po' Russia e un po' Francia e nessuna delle due. Di frammenti di sofferenza personale che si fondono a un flusso dai nostalgici tavolini di un caffè. Di città verdi come vetro o grigie in un crepuscolo mattutino. Di una Venezia aerea, eterna, che scompare senza inseguire. Dissolta, quando volti l'ultima pagina, in qualcosa che ti rimane dentro. . .  Settantanove pagine. E ancora tanto da metabolizzare. Il libro più sorprendente dell'anno, e anche quello con il valore affettivo più alto.
I finished my embroidery/pillow project!!! It was so much fun, and I can’t wait to start my next one. Hope you’re all having a nice Sunday. I’m just about to finish The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock, which is so good! I highly recommend it! .

THANK YOU!!! 🤯🥺 - Being I missed yesterday’s challenge day, I may try to make it up but I wanted to post a big THANK YOU! 😭💕 - This is a such a big number.. and this isn’t counting the next weeks before 2020 actually hits. I could’ve actually maybe hit 100K by the end of the year. Either way I am just speechless at this number. I went back and looked at the top posts in this and the first one with the most, Black Butler on the top left, had it just over 1000 likes 😱 The rest of the posts range from 1000-600 range, as the very last photo bottom right is about around 650 I think. 😭🤯 - I just cannot say Thank You enough right now. This is such a big number and I can’t get over it 🥰 I love you all!! I’m very thankful for all the friends I’ve made on here and all the support. When I’ve posted I’m sick I get so many messages asking if How I am and get better. I get messages all year long of just random things that turn into some other fun talk and maybe making a friend. I’m very very thankful for everyone and all the support!! 😩🥰 - THANK YOU!!! - Again not enough thanks could thank everyone. I am over 3000 followers as well I just really noticed and ugh 😭 I’m very happy right now. Thank you again for all the support and I hope this next year will be just as great. I’ve been treated better on here than sometimes in life and I just cannot just thank everyone enough. - - #junjiito #blackbutler #junjiitocollection  #manga #anime #mangashelf #books #book #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #mangaka #mangacollection #mangalover #booklover #mangastagram #mangaofinstagram #bookcollection #booklife #mangafan #shelfie #topnine #top9 #topnine2019 #top92019

Sharing one of my favourite collection today! I love these tiny gorgeous collectors edition by @panmacmillan and add them to my library as and when I can. They happen to be one of those editions I buy cause they are so pretty. I have read Little Women and Walden out of the lot and I loved the experience, you can just slip them in your bag and take them everywhere. What about you? Are you guilty of buying books because of their covers? Do you have any particular editions you collect? - Mansi #mymcl #macmillancollectorslibrary #bookcollection #bookcollector #booksandcoffee #littlewomen #louisamayalcott #tessofthedurbervilles #thomashardy #walden #henrydavidthoreau #grahamgreene #ourmaninhavana #masterandmargarita #mikhailbulgakov #unitedbookstagram #bookstagramindia #readersofinstagram #eveningcoffee #bythewindow #onthewindow #handsinframe #cozyreading #classics #bookish #met_createchange #culturetripbooks #indianreaders #bookaesthetic #beautifulbooks
