Our next read is here!!! ✨ 𝘡: 𝘈 𝘕𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘭 𝘰𝘧 𝘡𝘦𝘭𝘥𝘢 𝘍𝘪𝘵𝘻𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘥 by Therese Anne Fowler ✨ I chose to purchase this book after watching Z on Prime. The series was remarkable. As a F. Scott fan, I realized there was so little I actually knew about him and even less about his wife Zelda. And this is still fiction, so I think it’ll be fun. Let’s see how it goes, shall we? See you in two weeks! Happy Reading! #lilysbookshelf #bookclubofinstagram #instabookclub #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #dune #happyreading

It’s hard to believe it’s the last day of May! That means it’s time for my May wrap-up and book haul post! 💜 I’ll start with my May book haul. I have five new paperbound books. I won THE WEAVER’S DAUGHTER from the author Sarah E. Ladd, and THE DECEIVERS by Margaret Peterson Haddix and THE LONELY HEART OF MAYBELLE LANE by Kate O’Shaughnessy from Margaret Peterson Haddix. Thanks again to @sarahladdauthor and @haddixbooks for offering the giveaways of these books—I’m still amazed my name was drawn for either! Of course, I bought the other two. I had already purchased and read the ebook of THE STRANGERS, but once I won book 2, I needed the matching book 1 for my shelf.☺️ And I had forgotten that there was going to be a fourth MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY book, but once I realized it was out, I ordered a copy. 💜 I also added a BUNCH of ebooks to my TBR. About half were great deals and the other half were freebies. I definitely need to stop finding so many ebook deals. I’m never going to have enough time to read them all as it is! 💜 As for my May reading, I only finished three books. But they were all ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me! It’s really hard to choose a favorite. And I just realized that these three are each the last book in their trilogy!🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 I do like a good ending though and these all had that! 💜 ———>How many books did YOU read this month?

MRS.DALLOWAY By Virginia Woolf I don’t know if I’ll ever find the right vocabulary to explain what Woolf’s works are. Her apt use of stream of consciousness makes Mrs.Dalloway a difficult read,especially at the beginning. But once you get hold of the text you’ll only find abundance of good literature in one small book. How does she do it? How does she do it everytime? This post isn’t a review for ill have to read it again, to read the human mind from the eyes of Woolf, someone who herself suffered quite a bit from mental illness. Mrs.Dalloway encapsulates the events of one June day in London, the words form an unbroken narration with intermingling timelines, and with no chapters whatsoever it demands your attention at every “moment” in the story. This is what stream of consciousness is about,especially in Mrs.Dalloway, a thought after thought through different mouthpieces, sometimes in real time in the story and sometimes an extended internal monologue. Clarissa Dalloway, a social and glamorous wife of an MP is all set to throw a party and remembering those people she once was very fond of. Simultaneously, in another part of the storyline Septimus Smith is going crazy, borderline mad by shell-shock. Shell shock, probably now known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder does sickening things to one’s mind and body,and Mrs.Dalloway brings you at close quarters with this condition. It is heartbreaking to read about it let alone even imagining what Smith must be going through. With overlapping narratives and brilliant prose this work of art deserves a re-read for sure. Maybe after a month or two I’ll pick Mrs.Dalloway again, and maybe just maybe I’ll be able to find the words best for a masterpiece like this. 🌸 🌼 #thebookishsharma #virginia #virginiawoolf #book #bookreview #booknerd #booklover #bookstack #booksteachus #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #read #write #writeinquarantine #learn #livrestagram #literature #bookaddict #bookphotography #igbooks #bookcommunity #bookgram #bookobsessed #virginiawoolfquotes #penguin #penguinbooks #mrsdalloway #happyreading

#AnnaKarenina is the hardest book I have ever read and I will finish it even if it kills me. Whenever I start to want to give up, my little book buddy #Dumbledore reminds me of the trust that he instilled in me as I began my intellectual and literary quest and that one who begins must always complete the task lest peril be allowed to persist. I don’t know if that last part made sense but it sounded good.

Showing off my latest stack… now although this looks like four #books and a #Kindle, it's really two books and a Kindle… I ordered the first pair from Amazon but the package never arrived… I waited patiently and finally it was time for a replacement order… But when the second order arrived, days later the first one came… Amazon said I can keep both orders… so I guess I’ll have to give the extra set to someone who will read them… I read Ann Patchett’s The Bell Canto earlier this year, which I really enjoyed, so I’m looking forward to The Dutch House…I love the cover... As for the Kindle, I traded in my older Kindle for a new one… One night I wanted to sit in a hot tub with my fancy smelling salts and #read my #ebook but I didn’t because I did not want to drop it in the tub… so I said I’ll get a waterproof Kindle… when you trade them in there’s a discount… #happyreading #instabooks #bookworm #bookie #book #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #booklover #booknerd #bookish #booklove #bookaholic #bookaddict #ilovetoread #readersofinstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #sunday

⠀ ⠀ Lust is a wild and warm-blooded desire for something. It’s more often desperate, reckless, and unquenchable than not, and is no less than going to a watery grave where there is no way out.⠀ ⠀ Lust has become such a sexual appetite that has turned its upside down, putting a spin on what’s natural and making it narcissistic and selfish to the hilt.⠀ ⠀ An undue thirst for the pleasures of the body, which is irresistible and poisonous against yourself and the other person.⠀ ⠀ The wish for sexual relations itself isn’t immoral, but when this passion becomes self-serving or inward only, it turns out to be lust (a sin of flesh). ⠀ ⠀ Unlike other sins, it’s classified as a sin of your own choice. An undisciplined soul, refusing to be satisfied with God, is an easy victim of lust. ⠀ ⠀ Today, we swim in a cultural ocean of conspicuous eroticism, sexual advertising, accessible pornography, seductive dress ups, and body mania.⠀ ⠀ It takes two hands to clap. Men and women wilfully draw attention towards their bodies by their gestures and get applauded for their sexual conquests.⠀ ⠀ Likewise, pre-marital sex is becoming commonplace under our breath. Society is rapidly turning a deaf ear to affairs. People are undertaking deceit and immorality by unleashing and jeopardizing themselves at the same time.⠀ ⠀ Humans have become spinners of yarns by dirty tricks. Lust can wipe out the foundation of love which keeps up our families.⠀ ⠀ Flesh, hunger, horniness, deluge is what it’s all about, and people are dead as doornail who will certainly do anything for their self-gratification. ⠀ ⠀ It is well-said:⠀ “Lust is a thing of the blood. Doesn’t need a head or heart.”⠀ .⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Follow @implicitworld⠀⠀ #personalblog #7deadlysins #say #no #to #lust #sexual #desire #appetite #thirst #sin #of #flesh #instagood #followme #photooftheday #happyreading #knowyourworth #implicitworld #personal #development #growth #unspokenwords #thoughts #feelings #we #care #about #you

The beautifully written and illustrated tale of The Boy and The Giant, by David Litchfield, revolves around a boy (Billy), his grandfather and the village giant. Billy think the giant is nothing but a myth. And even though his grandfather tells of all the countless ways this village giant has come to the rescue of everyone in their community, Billy is still a non-believer. But this is until he comes face-to-face with said giant, when Billy didn't give him the warmest of welcomes and the giant ran away. Billy immediately regrets his unfriendly behavior and it determined to make things right. In this story, Litchfield charmingly uses the metaphor of the giant to help readers understand that we don't need to be afraid of things that are different. And this is a message that many could use a bit more embracing in these turbulent times. ** For children ages 3-8.

Happy Sunday friends! 🖤 This weekend I was supposed to be at BookCon with some of my booksta friends. While we didn’t get to go, I’m happy to say that the cosplaying still happened! 🖤 There were a few different characters that I was wanting to cosplay at BookCon: Manon(coming soon), Nightmare from Renegades(which is for sure going to happen someday), and Feyre. I couldn’t decide if I was going to do Feyre in a dress or in her Illyrian leathers ready for battle. So here you have it: Feyre studying up on some battle strategy. 🥰 It’s pretty convenient that my battle ready Feyre uses the same clothing as another character, just minus a few overlying pieces. Except I forgot to put my ears on first.🤦‍♀️ • Do you cosplay? If not, who would you want to cosplay? #happyreading #bookstagram #bookworm #bookwormproblems #bookwormforlife #booklover #bibliophile #booknerd #allthebooks #currentlyreading #bookishpost #bookaddict #bookhoarder #booksandflowers #bookstacovenbabes #bookish #cosplay #feyre #feyrearcheron #acotar #acowar #feyrecosplay #bookcon #bookstabesties #cosplaynewbie #bookcosplay

Hi ihr Lieben, ab morgen heißt es: Willkommen im Juni😃. Hier seht ihr einige der #neuzugnge in meinem #bücherregal - ich hoffe, dass ich bald dazu kommen werde, sie zu lesen. Momentan habe ich noch einige andere #currentlyreads (mehr dazu später in den Stories). Jetzt stelle ich euch die Bücher noch im einzelnen vor: 📚#lieddesachill von Madeline Miller ist das einzige Buch in deutscher Sprache auf dem Foto (eine Empfehlung der Buchhändlerin, an der ich nicht vorbeigehen konnte). Klar, dass ich mich darauf freue - Achilles ist einer meiner Lieblingsfiguren der griechischen Mythologie. 📚#kiterunner von @khaledhouissa ist ein Buch über zwei afghanische Jungen, die in unterschiedlichen Schichten aufwachsen. Es ist ein nicht ganz so neuer, aber dafür hochgelobter Roman. 📚#truthwitch von Susan Dennard musste ich einfach haben. Seit ich #throneofglass gehört habe, bin ich total begeistert von #hexengeschichten 📚Das gleiche gilt für #deathbyshakespeare von Kathryn Harkup. (Sieht dieses Buch nicht hervorragend aus😍?) 📚#seeme von @nicholassparks hat @charlottecharonne_autorin empfohlen. Es hat mich neugierig gemacht. 📚Und zu guter Letzt: #theartofacting von @stellaadler - das ist eines der Bücher, von denen ich schon oft gehört und die ich dann gebraucht gekauft habe. 📚Welche Bücher begleiten euch in den neuen Monat? #happyreading #newbooks #amreading #currentlyreading #autor #reading #poetry #writerlife #literatura #book #bücher #dasleseich #leseglück #bücher #lesenmachtglücklich #buchtipp #bücherliebe #bücherwurm #bookstagram

#finishedbook #nextread on to one of my anticipated releases, loved this authors previous work so heres hoping for another gripping page turner, What Lies Between Us. . . Holy Sister....... zzzzzz...... this series absolutely bored me to be perfectly honest and so many times I wanted to just give up on it. I know it's had a lot of praise and has a fan base but it did nothing for me and had I not stupidly bought the full series before reading, I'd never have even made it through book 1 let alone the entire trilogy. I think I can safely say Mark Lawrence is an author I wont be bothering with again. . . #book #bookish #bookaddict #booklove #bookporn #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #bibliomania #library #instabook #happyreading #holysister #marklawrence #whatliesbetweenus #johnmarrs

Pick up your copy today or order at: https://bit.ly/2yPrELz #HappyReading 📚📖📚 "Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But power has its price. It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute. The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined — every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute . . . and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes." #SuzanneCollins #YA #booklover #teen #readingrocks #bookworms #HungerGames #booknerds

With everything going on in our society today, Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman felt like the perfect choice. In Southern California the water is running dry and the people have labeled it a Tap-Out. The question is what lengths would you go to, to protect yourself and the people important to you? We meet Alyssa and Kelton, teenagers that are next door neighbors. Kelton’s family has been preparing for the apocalypse for as long as he can remember but Alyssa and her family are not so well prepared. They journey to find water and a safe place to stay, meeting friend and foe along the way. We see some people gain their humanity while others lose it completely. And by the end everyone is asking themselves, would you be a hero in a disaster like this or a monster? Absolutely amazing and heartfelt storyline, highly recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Out of 5 stars! #reading #books #amazing #thismonthsread #awesome #bookstagram #happyreading #dry #readersofinstagram #booklife #nealshusterman #alwaysreading #bookworms #jarrodshusterman #foreverreading #bookclub #read #book #readbetweenthebinds #discussbetweenthebinds #bookworm #enjoy #joinus #fun #love #keepgoing #great

One of the reasons I love the 'gram so much is I have been introduced to so many books and authors I may not have otherwise come across. My credit card feels the opposite 🤣. As a horror fan, I was familiar with Clive Barker through his movies, but I had never read any of his books. I think this was partly because I'm always hesitant to try a new author by diving into a large novel, because if you don't like them, you're stuck slogging through 500 plus pages. Or at least I am because I have a hard time quitting a book even if I don't like it 😬. @jobis89 (you'll see me shout out Johann a lot because she was the first account I followed and her page has encouraged me to spend a lot of money 🤣) suggested The Thief of Always when I asked which Barker she would suggest to start with, and I was happy when I saw it was on the shorter side so I could dip my toes. Long story short I ended up loving it (it's a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me), and I ended up purchasing 3 more Barker books that are currently on my TBR pile. It reads as a young adult novel, however it had me in tears by the end. I love Barker's writing style, it's engaging and easy to read, and I can't wait to read more of his library. If like me, you've been curious about Barker but don't know where to start, I suggest here. Also, if you aren't a horror fan, this stays away from the gore and darker elements that Barker is known for. #happyreading #clivebarker

It’s a wrap up peeps! I dropped the ball and haven’t finished Salem’s Lot yet so I guess that’ll be included in next month, and HP is never included in my rankings because that’s just unfair to other books 😬 1. Meddling Kids - Edgar Cantero!!! Yes pls!!! Loved everything about this and I ship Andy and Kerri hard 2. The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty. Classic. Creepy. And maybe if your kid says she made an imaginary friend thru a ouija board, don’t be chill about it 3. Furiously Happy - Jenny Lawson. I for real cannot believe the life she lives. Ridiculous in the best way 4. The Lingering - SJI Holliday. A few loose ends IMO but still a refreshing take on a haunted house! I appreciate this one Okie that’s all I have!

She changes a little something in him. While he will always be Big Bad V... She soothes him almost like Butch does. The ending, no matter how many times I read it, is gut wrenching. I do like that my JM went through his transition, FINALLY! And Phury stepping up to take his Brother's place as the Primale is a good deal, true? 🖤 #bookdiary #bookjournal #bookjournalling #book #reading #happyreading #bookaddict #instareader #readersofinstagram #happyeverafter #hea #bookcover #happyending #romance #romancenovel #happycouple #bookstagram #bookstagramer #bookworm #recommendedread #bookboyfriend #favoriteauthor #jrward #jrwardauthor #blackdaggerbrotherhood #bdb #vampire #vampires #vampireromance #paranormalromance

May: 6 books. Bringing me to a total of 25 for the year so far. Almost halfway to my goal, and with summer finally here, I'll get tons of outdoor reading time. My favorite book of May was Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult, and I have to say, probably my favorite of the year so far.

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon For English, please scroll down Έχω ξεκινήσει και διαβάζω τα βιβλία της σειράς «Outlander» της Diana Gabaldon (diana_gabaldon), αλλά επειδή είναι τεράστια, αποφάσισα να τα ακούσω. Με χαρά σας ανακοινώνω ότι έχω ακούσει μέχρι και το τρίτο βιβλίο (μιλάμε για 45 ώρες βιβλία!!!) με τίτλο «Voyager» που το προτιμώ από τα προηγούμενα δύο. Μάλλον φταίει το ότι είχε πειρατές; Δεν ξέρω. Ένας λόγος που θέλω να διαβάσω τα βιβλία, είναι γιατί θέλω να δω τη σειρά που έχει βασιστεί σε αυτά. Όσοι την έχουν δει λένε ότι είναι πολύ καλή! Εσείς έχετε διαβάσει τα βιβλία ή έχετε δει τη σειρά; Τι παρακολουθείτε αυτόν τον καιρό; I got on this journey to read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, but since the books as huge, I decided to listen to them. I'm excited to announce that I have reached and read (listened) up to the third book, which is rather more to my liking than the previous two. Maybe because there were pirates in it? I don't know. One reason I want to read throughout the book series, is because I want to watch the show based on the books! Everyone that has already seen it says it's great!

Chronicle of a Student: Many people say that the lockdown is the best time to learn or do something new and I agree with them. I feel that although there is a lockdown, we should find ways to engage ourselves. For me a student of class 8 it is a bitter-sweet sensation as I have summer holidays but there is the lockdown so I can’t meet my friends and I get a bit bored at times because I have nothing to do but I know that there are people in Maharashtra and other places who are having a worse time than me. During my free time I usually read a book or watch TV. Everyday I try to do something new as it helps in keeping me occupied. Most of the days I play on my tablet with my friends and we talk to each other. I think that we should keep in touch with our family and friends. Many people think that the COVID-19 pandemic is coming to a close but experts say that it might take 4-5 years. I have started to get used to the lockdown as it may take a while for the COVID-19 pandemic to go away and I urge everyone to do the same.

Happy Reading People !!! I hope you all had a great weekend.... So a few weeks ago I read a book “How To Win Friends And Influence People” by Dale Carnegie(wait that influence thingy is not relevant to #Instagram influencers 😀😀😀😀).. Wanted to put a note or something in my insta I mean Who am I to review the work of a legendary... If anything I have learned from this book is how to be polite despite the fact that it’s not 1935 and sometimes courtesy costs you a thing or two but there is no harm in being polite, is there?? On a separate note it’s a must read for asinine and haughty tribes 😃😃... Gonna read Dale’s next that’s been lying on the #bookmate shelf.... Ok.

🎉 1000 Followers 🎉 . . I’ve woken up to 1000 followers this morning 😳 Thank you to everyone who follows me, I have no idea what I’m doing but I’m very grateful for all of the support 💛 . . I thought I would do a ‘face behind the account’ post now I’m at 1000 followers so here it goes. My name is Melissa, I’m a 31 year old humanities teacher from Liverpool. I specialise in Geography and A Level politics. Before I became a teacher I was a journalist for 6 years in London, living the high life until I met my partner Carl and settled down. We decided to move back to Liverpool 2 years ago to buy a house together and hopefully expand our family in the future. . . Carl was born in South Africa so we spend most our summers there with his family and decided to buy in Cape Town & eventually plan to move there full time 🙏🏻 . . I absolutely love the community I’ve found on here. I’ve only ever used Instagram for personal use and found it quite fake with lots of comparing and showing off but the home community is so kind and supportive, I am really enjoying it. . . We are redecorating our home for the second time as I feel the first time was very rushed to get it all done and everything is very white so I can’t wait to share our renovations with you. . . Happy Sunday 💛💛 . . #happyhome #homeaccount #1000followers #homesofinsta #happyweekend #garden #stringchairs #happyreading #bookworm #ighomes #instagramhomedaily #myhomedaily #homeinspo #homeaccount #renoproject

Zeit ist relativ. Wir leben ständig mit der Erwartung unsere Zeit sinnvoll zu nutzen. Sind ständig auf der Jagd uns selbst zu optimieren.

#qotd Do you like tea/coffee without milk? #aotd: I like any kind of tea. It doesn’t matter for me if the tea is with milk or without. However today i tried to make black coffee and I didn’t like it. This coffee tasted bad without milk. So after taking some pictures i added milk with it. #readingupdate I've finished ONE OF US IS NEXT. It’s sequel of One Of Us Is Lying. I loved this book. I'll post my review soon on this book. That's all for today. Hope your Eid was spent well. ⁣ Stay safe & happy reading ♥

Wrap up time! So all the books I read this month bar one have been audiobooks or ebooks so all I have is a collage. A good month, I read 10 books, trying to up this to 12 in June in order to meet my goodreads goal. My stand out reads of the month have been The Other Mrs by Mary Kubica, Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw and 488 Rules for Life by Kitty Flanagan. I also loved the Passengers by John Marrs, I just love the plot of all of his books, every time I read a synopsis I think "oh that sounds great". This month I also started my bookstagram page and have recieved so much love already ! My reading challenge fits at 48/150. Here's to another month!

for too long I have been silent.⁣ too long saddened and not angered. ⁣ because I haven’t felt like I’ve had the right words to say. ⁣ ⁣ & that’s all, completely, 100% on me & I’ve failed.⁣ ⁣ on my lack of proactive learning and reading. on my lack unlearning. my lack of listening. ⁣ ⁣ I’m going to try to change that. I feel like a step in the right direction is adjusting my reading life. In the month of June I will be reading a majority (if not all) books by BIPOC. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve already started White Fragility. its already helped me learn so much. but let’s continue on in our un/re learning. ⁣ ⁣ here are some of the books I am going to try to read. if you have any you want to add that you’ve learned from and want to let me know, please feel free to drop a comment or DM. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #booknerd #bookaholic #alwaysreading #readmorebooks #amreading #happyreading #readersofinstagram #readallday #currentlyreading #reader #igreads #igbooks #instabooks #bookish #bookhaul #readersofig #instabook #acolorstory #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #theeverygirl #sharetheeverygirl⁣ ⁣ #diversenovel #weneeddiversebooks

It’s been 18 years since the first Harry Potter movie release, but this series still makes me feel like I’m on cloud nine ❣️ . . Inspired by @anuprit_0828 , I started to binge-watch the Harry Potter series during this lockdown. When Amazon started delivering again, I found this Harry potter illustrated edition by Jim Kay, published by Bloomsbury and instantly ordered by my sister @gulatisadhna 🥰 . . Oh boy, this edition is love at first sight and a must have!!! I am in love with Harry Potter, again ❣️ . .
