  • Are there any places that you associate with particular books? As you know I’m a big lover of audiobooks, I listen to them as I walk around London and so different parts of the city remind me of different stories. During my break from Instagram I’ve been delving into Shirley Jackson’s work - starting with The Haunting of Hill House - while also spending a lot of time at Hampstead Heath. This has caused the two things to become inextricably tangled in my mind, so I thought I’d put a gothic twist on “the heath” for this photo to show how I see it when I’m there... What have you been reading this month? I’d love to hear which books you’re squeezing in before the end of the year. ☾

  • Have you read The Silent Companions? I read this one early on in the year and was captivated by it. It feels as though you’re reading a classic gothic novel, but also has something fresh to bring to the table. I’m reluctant to say much more as it would spoil the mystery of the story, but I found it to be engrossingly creepy and I was equally invested in all three timelines (which is a rare feat). I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read it too.

  • Y’all... we are officially just a month away from the release of Wicked King 😱😱 ✸ ✸ ✸ Because I am spoiled and have absolutely AMAZING bookstagram friends — I was able to read TWK early. (Seriously, @book_junkee makes dreams come true 🙌🏻) But I am still pretty excited to get my hands on a finished copy! ✸ ✸ ✸ I have been trying to be good and not buy multiple editions of books, but I took one look at the BN special edition and decided to preorder. Oops 😬 It’s just so pretty!! I cannot help myself! ✸ ✸ ✸ I legit can’t decide whether I like the white or black covers more. My heart says white... of course 😂😂 But man do I find my eyes straying to that lovely black too 👀 ✸ ✸ ✸ Good thing it is a bookworm’s prerogative not to choose favorites 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 ——————— Recommend a Book // #allthebooksdec18 Favorite Book Cover of 2018 // #decinbooks18 ——————— #thecruelprince #thewickedking #hollyblack #bookrecommendation #bookaesthetic #bookcommunity #booksofig #bookgram #readersofinstagram #readersofig #readergram #instareads #readerlife

  • Hello Potterheads! . QOTD: Do you collect different copies of Harry Potter? If so, how many different editions do you've got? . I've got two complete hardcover editions in German, two paperback-boxes in English, the first three illustrated books in German and the first two books in English in Gryffindor colours. And I'll be getting another complete hardcover edition in English soon. 😂🙈 . Yes, I know that's a bit strange. But all these editions are so beautiful! 😍😱 . . 🇩🇪 Hallo ihr Lieben! . Sammelt ihr verschiedene Ausgaben von Harry Potter? Wenn ja, wie viele verschiedene habt ihr? . Ich habe zwei komplette Ausgaben als gebundene Bücher in Deutsch, zwei Taschenbuch Boxen in Englisch, die ersten drei Teile als illustrierte Ausgabe und die ersten zwei Teile in der englischen Gryffindor Edition. Außerdem kommt bald noch eine weitere englische Ausgabe als gebundene Bücher dazu. 😂🙈 . Ich weiß, ich bin etwas seltsam. Aber all diese Ausgaben sind so wunderschön! 😍😱 . . . #bookstagram #harrypotter #potterhead #bookish #gryffindor #funko #booklover #bookphotography #book #booknerd #readabook #lesen #bücherliebe #bookaholic #harrypotterbooks #bibliophile #bookgram #readersofinstagram

  • #bookhoarder #bookwormsunite #bookworm #readersofinstagram #nerdlife #needtoread #nerdsofig Luckiest Girl Alive is a...strangely good, sometimes bad/cliche novel. I gave it 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 because I did end up liking the writing style - just not everything on/off the page. The book centers around TifAni FaNelli, her life in NYC ("Manhattan," as her wanna be rich mom specifies), and an event in her past that a company is making a documentary about. You find out the event about midway through the book. You also find out about a smaller, also just as tragic event before then. There is a whole lot of tragedy in this young girls life. It's a miracle that she was able to overcome it and lead the life she was leading, even if she wasn't sure it was the life she wanted. My biggest issue with this book was Ani's sex life. There were details in it about how she liked her sex rough, but her fiance wouldn't ever dream of debasing her the way she wanted to be, etc. And that's fine, I have no judgement anout how she likes her sex, but I do have an issue about the way it was written. First we find out how dark she likes her sex. Then we find out about the event with the boys. Then more dark sex. Then the big plot twist in the middle - and then no more sex talk at all. It's like it was written in just to shock people. Plus, there was no info whatsoever about WHY she likes her sex that dark. I don't buy that it came from Event #1. If that had happened to me I would never have wanted sex again, let alone that kind. But hey, to each their own. But yeah, after Event #2, no mention at all about sex. Other than that, I did like it. Didn't love it, so yeah...3.5.

  • Q: How many books have you read in 2018 so far? And which one is your favourite? 📖🤗✨ . . . 🇬🇧 EN: Inspired by @anniekslibrary , whose reading skills are insane (she reads so many books in such a short amount of time!),😍 I want to read more books this month. I’ll never reach my 2018 reading goal (set on 25 books - read 8). 📖 But I’m proud of myself that I have actually read some books, one of this year’s reads has also become my favourite book. So I’m actually not dissapointed in myself. I think I did well ☺️ . Are you happy with the amount of books you’ve read in 2018? How many books have you read so far? 📚 . . 🇳🇱 NL: Geïnspireerd door @anniekslibrary , wiens leestempo echt iets is om op jaloers op te zijn (zij leest zoveel boeken in zo’n korte tijd!), 🙈💕 probeer ik nog een aantal boeken voor het einde van het jaar lezen. Mijn leesdoel van 25 zal ik nooit bereiken. Maar ik ben wel trots op mezelf dat ik in 2018 tenminste een aantal boeken gelezen heb. Mijn lievelingsboek daarvan was ‘Een lied voor Achilles’ 😍 van Madeline Miller. Ik kijk daarom ontzettend uit naar Circe, haar tweede boek, dat in januari in het Nederlands uitkomt 😱 . Hoeveel boeken hebben jullie in 2018 gelezen 🤔 En welk boek daarvan vonden jullie het meest tof? 📖✨ . . . . . . #goodreads #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookpassion #bookstagrammer #yareads #yabook #bookworm #bibliophile #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #bookhoarder #booknerdigans #yalovin #bookdragon #ireadya #booksofig #booksofinsta #readerlife #yafiction #readingtime #bookphotography #bücherliebe #bookish #booklover

  • 𝒜𝓇𝒾𝒶 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝐸𝓉𝒽𝑜𝓈 - 𝒫𝒶𝓇𝓉 𝐹𝑜𝓊𝓇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aria booked a table at the Ivy to catch up with Maggie. The restaurant had a beautiful Christmas decoration that the girls loved and set up a tradition for nearly a decade to meet there on the second Saturday of every December. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘I just can’t get over how gorgeous the Ivy is.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Don’t beat around the bush Aria; tell me what’s been going on with Ethos?’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Things have been great, he is almost too good to be true, I cannot think of anything he could improve on, he has got the right attitude toward everything, career, work-life balance, family, morals.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Right…. But tell me about that date, the one that was preceded by a written letter.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘It was just magical Maggie, he booked a chauffeur to pick me up from home and drive me to Elmsbridge. I mean the drive itself was just breath-taking, the closer I got to his neighbourhood the more I realised his upbringing and roots – blue blood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We approached his house and it looked like any normal English home from the outside. A small little front yard that has not been overly well kept or decorated, a cute little car parked outside, a few wall shrubs hugging the house making it look ever so homely, at that point I thought to myself ‘maybe this boy is not as blue blooded as I thought he was’ which was a relief for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘But then it dawned on me, looking perfect is the perfect cover up.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #storiesbymay #theivychelseagarden #brunch #ariaandethos #theperfectman #relationshipgoals #writersofinstagram #mystory #readersofinstagram #londonphotography #christmasdecorations #christmasinlondon #christmassy #christmasmagic

  • GASP AN EBOOK? ON MY FEED..!! • 🎄 • This has been on hold for a long time but about 10 weeks ago I received a free ebook from @brainwalkerfans in exchange for an honest review,, and well here’s that review « 6/10 I must say i was captivated by the concept of this book to start with [young boy with a passion for science and a somewhat estranged father is somehow combined] The writing consistently keeps me interested. Which was a sigh of relief because there have been many ebooks which have made me just want my eyes to roll back into my head and stay there. Its very easy to understand and yet its enjoyable We have some brilliant world building here. Wonderful and quizzical imagination from the authors. Nothing goes unexplained and it adds to such an intricate setting I’ve never been much for science. I personally hate it not my favourite at school but the science behind this book is easy enough to understand and makes for a sweet plot All round good characters. Realistic dialogue and relationships between the characters - a book peeve of mine is unrealistic dialogue and overdramatised relationships:/ A book definitely worth looking up » { #bookstagram #booklover #booklove #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookworm #booknerd #bookish #bookphotography #bookshelf #ebook #bookreview #bookblogger #reader #writer #readersofinstagram #writersofinstagram #brainwalker #igreads }

  • >when fear arrives, something is about to happen<⠀ •⠀ •⠀ Hello, hello, hello! Short caption today because a) I haven’t been reading and so have no updates and b) I have WAY too much work to do and not enough time to do it. Finals start next week and it’s only just starting to to hit home that they’re coming up. I’m also low key freaking out because I have a music performance in approximately 2 hours in a format I’ve never encountered. It’s basically me playing in front of 2 members of the music faculty to make sure I can actually play my flute (spoiler: I can), but I’m still getting increasingly nervous. Stage fright is a bitch, ain’t it? Also I realize this post should probably be about Wylan, because, y’know, flute but 🤷🏼‍♀️ I need some fearless Inej vibes. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ QOTD: What was the last book you finished reading?

  • Was it so hard to believe about it all? Was i wise enough to take the blame and fall? All I do is keep wondering about us, about it now That's when I know, that's when I know, that's when I know. Because chances comes with choices We pay a price to earn better prizes It's upto me now, to feel happy or to feel low That's when I know, that's when I know, that's when I know. And since you didn't turn back, we both have given up on years That we went past by and how I learned to ignore your tears So maybe it was all for nothing, maybe it was all just for show That's when I know, that's when I know, that's when I know. I've learnt to close my doors now, it started with you As I open up several others, to start afresh, start anew Does it make me less emotional? If it makes you feel so That's when you'll know, that's when you'll know, that's when you'll know. I do not regret them, it was a blessing to have known you as a person I might even miss our moments well spent, in good faith and fun And in moments such as now if I write of it feeling all down in woe That's when you'll know, that's when you'll know, that's when you'll know. I may have loved you or maybe I never did in all this time And if you really feel that way, sadly even then it is fine Because this is how I'll really end, reeling it all in, gently and slow That's when you'll know, that's when you'll know, that's when you'll know. Life does have its ups and forever downs, we must take it as a yes So wake up to a new morning and it'll hurt you less and less And when it tests us to let it go or when to fight toe to toe That's when we'll know, that's when we'll know, that's when we'll know. #writersofinstagram #writersofig #amwriting #amediting #authorlife #bookish  #novel  #readmore  #shelfie  #bookstagram  #booktastic  #amreading  #readersofinstagram #bookwhore  #bookoftheday  #boolnerdigans  #booknerd  #bookhaul  #bookaddict #booklove #bibliophile #bookclub #ilovereading #bookworm #yalit #yabooks  #booksofinstagram  #bookporn #creativityfound

  • I finally got A Ladder to the Sky after a month long wait at the library. It’s about a talentless sociopath that will do anything to further his career in writing. Which I’ll admit is hard to relate to as I’ve repeatedly told my boss as long as I have plenty of money for books and time off to travel I’m good. ⠀ ⠀ I’m a simple woman. ⠀ ⠀ Anyhoo, it’s gotten crazy good reviews and I can’t wait to be disgusted by him! #johnboyne

  • I was supposed to wait and see if could get Bibliophile for Christmas. As you can tell I have 0 self control. But in a fun way. Not a I-bought-a-Ferrari-and-now-have-to-sell-my-organs kind of way. Loved the concept and the art and the lists. Definitely a must have for every bibliophile. Rating: 4.5/5💃🏻

  • Throwback to my best day. Eight years ago, I was in Dublin viewing the Books of Kell. After my tour, I took a staircase to what I believed was the exit and was hit with this. THE LIBRARY OF TRINITY COLLEGE. Like the naive fool I was, I didn’t know this library was in Dublin. I knew it existed. Never quite got down to pinpointing it’s location. Now I’m not a crier, but things got emotional. That’s all I’ll say. Anyhoo, I can’t wait to go back again someday.

  • This weeks used bookstore finds! 🌻 The Unabridged Journals of Silvia Plath: I read the abridged version of her journals three years ago and fell in love with her raw vulnerable voice. Dare I say, I loved it even more than The Bell Jar? Very excited to dive into the unabridged version. 🌻 The Outsiders (50th Anniversary Edition): I read this book for the first time 5 years ago and I blame my high school for not requiring me to read it earlier. I’m excited to introduce my hardback to my paperback. I hope they get along. 🌻 Still Me: It’s odd to only own the last book in a series, but I regret nothing. This was by far my favorite book and while I needed the highs and lows of the previous two to fully revel in the joy that is Still Me, I’m ok only having this one on the shelf. At least until I find the other two on sale. Mama loves a sale.
