Myślę, że to zdjęcie pasuje do dzisiejszego tematu #instawtorek PORTRET. Bo czy mogłabym bardziej pokazać, kim jestem? Jestem osobą, która chodzi z nosem w książkach, która siedzi z nosem w książkach, która leży z nosem w książkach. Moje łóżko pełne miękkich poduch, wygodne ubranie, związane włosy i książka. Tak, tak właśnie widzę swój portret.
Gdybyście mieli zostać namalowani, tak jak w czasach przed aparatami, przed dagerotypem, co znalazłoby się z wami na waszym portrecie?
I don’t really mind, but I love browsing second hand book stores hunting for the book that I’ve been wanting to read for ages or searching for a beautiful vintage edition of a classic to add to my collection, which inspired me to create our “Antique Bookstore” candle. It’s a unique and comforting blend of Vintage leather and aged pages with hints of sandalwood creating the familiar scent of weekends spent browsing in a second hand book store ✨
Piero Morosini, author of Seven Keys to Imagination, concludes the book with this, “Imagination has the chance of creating new, radical and beneficial futures as never before in the history of humankind. In order to realize wholesome futures, our imagination needs to be guided by our wisdom, supported by our determined courage, and developed in the company of our heartfelt intuition. Because positive imagination does start—and end—in the heart.” Get your copy of this book on Amazon now!

All of the life lessons that you need, could never be in any manuals because to learn about life, one must first experience it. This one right here is a heart-warming and an immaculate read indeed. If you haven't own it yet then this would the perfect time to do so.
It has been a rainy day and the lighting was too beautiful for a photography session that I just couldn't resist. My January wrapped-up consists of only two books but hey, it's better than none right?
Crooked Kingdom ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was my finally read of January and I've been trying to figure out how to write a worthy review. I still havent figured that out, so this is all we're gonna get!
Okay, so think I liked Crooked Kingdom better than Six of Crows! Again all I can really say is that Leigh Bardugo is a brilliant writer. I dont know how she comes up with this stuff. From the very beginning of the book the stakes are higher than the first book and I was hanging on the edge of my seat from page one. So much happens in this books that it stayed fresh the whole time while at the same time the main plot unfolded seamlessly (and ingeniously!)throught the whole book. This book is a lot more character driven than Six of Crows and I really enjoyed getting to know these characters better. We get so much more back story on each of the crows and really learn why they are the way they are where they come from in so much more detail. Overall this books was relentlessly thrilling and I was so enthralled I was left wanting so much more! It was so captivating I was almost addicted.
Okay that's all I can say but honestly words cant fully depict how I feel about this book! Basically in conclusion, my mind was blown and Leigh Bardugo is a genius and I give this book 5 stars. The end :) #crookedkingdom#leighbardugo#bookreview#books#bookstagram#bookstoread#booksbooksbooks#booksof2020#januaryreads#booksofjanuary#booksofinstagram#bookish#bookishlife#bookishlove#reading#readinglist#readinglist2020#reader#readersofinstagram
Anne Adams, oikealta nimeltään Andrina Adamo, on temperamenttinen ja päättäväinen lapsi, joka rakastaa tanssia. Hänet on suorastaan luotu ballerinaksi. Harmi vain, että isoäiti ja isoisä, Annen huoltajat, eivät tahdo tyttärentyttärelleen sellaista elämää.
Jean Estorilin Annen balettihaave vuodelta 1957 aloittaa 11-osaisen (jos laskin oikein) balettisarjan, jossa seurataan Annen taivalta pikkutytöstä tanssijattareksi. Suomeksi käännettynä kirjoista on julkaistu vain viisi.
Kirja oli yksi suosikeistani lapsena, ja ahmin kaikki viisi Anne-kirjaa suurella antaumuksella, vaikka itse en balettia tanssikaan. Henkilöhahmot, ilmapiiri, ympäristö, tanssit, musiikki... Kaikki on kuvattu kauniisti ja uskottavasti. On myös jännittävää, miten ajaton tarina on. Monestakaan yksityiskohdasta ei huomaa, että kirja on kirjoitettu yli kuusikymmentä vuotta sitten! Aion ehdottomasti tehdä kirjastoon aineistonhankintapyynnöt lopuista Anne-kirjoista. Tai pitäisi ehkä sanoa Drina-kirjoista, koska jostain syystä päähenkilön lempinimi oli suomennoksissa käännetty.
Tämä asetan Porin kirjaston lukuhaasteessa kohtaan 9. Kirja, joka tekee nostalgiseksi. Sopisi toki myös kohtaan 28. Musiikki tai soitin on keskeisessä osassa kirjaa, mutta taidan jättää tämän vapaaksi Anne balettikoulussa -kirjalle. 😍
“I knew what came next. I recognized the faint brush of energy against my skin, the familiar thrumming in my ears.
Then came the screams.”
I picked this book up without knowing anything about it. I didn’t read the back cover or the synopsis. I just went off of a recommended and decided to step out of my comfort zone. The book was a complete surprise for me. I usually don’t read a lot of YA or Fantasy but I was not disappointed! I devoured this book in about three days and it had me hooked.
This book made me think of the Salem witch trials and it seems to take place in old France. I’m not really sure because this is the kind of book where you’re just dropped in the middle of the action and you’re slowly seeing the story unfold. The magic system is not fully explained but I’m assuming the sequel will give us more insight on that. There’s romance, magic, religion, friendship, witches and witch hunters.
I liked the fact that this book is written in first person dual POV but the writing flowed so well that I never had trouble keeping up with the characters.
Lou is vulgar, brave, endearing, and a witch.
Her husband, Reid, is loyal, driven, loving, and a witch hunter.
“ A witch and a witch hunter bound in holy matrimony. There was only one way such a story could end- a stake and a match.”
The reveals weren’t shocking because you see them coming but the story flows and I liked the hate to love relationship between the two main characters. Personally I liked the first half of the book more than the last only because the characters were so well developed in the beginning but it slowed down towards the end. I expected more of a cliff hanger but I am excited for the second book, Blood & Honey, coming out in September because I do really like Reid and Lou’s love story. I related to Lou so much because I have a potty mouth as well😂 I definitely hope to see more of Ansel, the sweetest boy ever! #serpentanddove#serpentanddovereview#bookreview#bookreviewer#bookreviews#minibookreview#readingreview#bookish#bookishlife#shelbymahurin#yafantasy#yabooks#yabookstagrammer#yaseries#yabook#yabookreview#youngadultbooks#bibliophile
Quando a @Coolbooks nasceu, era uma plataforma dedicada à publicação de livros digitais de autores portugueses. Pelo que não tive logo um exemplar físico do meu primeiro “bebé”. Eu estava na China, a viver as “Crónicas de Shaolin”, quando recebi a notícia.
Obviamente que tive de esperar um pouco mais até tê-lo nas mãos, mas quando a minha família me foi visitar a Pequim, pude tirar uma fotografia com a minha obra-prima na Muralha da China.
Hein, o meu livro já esteve na Muralha da China! E tu quantas maravilhas do mundo já visitaste?
I’ve always been a bit of an on and off reader, sometimes I’ll consume a book in a couple of days and other times it’ll take me a month to even get half way through 📚 That said these three I have been really enjoying so far this year and wanted to share with you...
🚀 I bought Elton John’s book after loving Rocketman and buying tickets for his farewell tour later this year. So far I’m enraptured by the musical history and love the amusing anecdotes.
💓 I’ve been so excited for @livpurvis book to come out and so far the physical version of @theinsecuregirlsclub is like reading my inner monologue and doesn’t disappoint with its helpful tips!
💎 I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of crystal healing but it wasn’t until a friend bought me two different stones that this interest peaked. This handy little book by @goldirocks.co has been great as a beginner and helps me to understand it’s all about mindfulness and manifesting what you want.
Have you read any of these books, and if so what did you think? While reading is something I do for pleasure and to unwind (you won’t find any “I read 52 books last year!!!” comments from me) it is something I want to do more often, so would love to know what your favourite reads are 🧡
What I wish I was doing today, rather than getting ready for work... #wouldalwaysratherbereading 🙃
I always wish, belatedly, that I’d taken more time off when it’s the school holidays, even when I don’t really have that much time to take! But we spent such a chilled day together yesterday with only minor disagreements over the making of biscuits and the poor weather which meant we were stuck inside...that it’s a wrench having to get up and get ready for school and holiday club. I know the kids will have a good time (better than me!) but still...I’d rather be at home with them. Ah the joys of parent guilt 😐
Here’s to a good day, whatever you are up to 💕

Jane In Love #bookninja drops happening this week thanks to @booksontherail and @penguinbooksaus
SYNOPSIS: At age twenty-eight, Jane Austen should be seeking a suitable husband, but all she wants to do is write. She is forced to take extreme measures in her quest to find true love – which lands her in the most extraordinary of
Magically, she finds herself in modern-day England, where horseless steel carriages line the streets and people wear very little clothing. She forms a new best friend in fading film star Sofia Wentworth, and a genuine love interest in Sofia’s brother Fred, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever and kind-hearted.
She is also delighted to discover that she is now a famous writer, a published author of six novels and beloved around the globe. But as Jane’s romance with Fred blossoms, her presence in the literary world starts to waver. She must find a way to stop herself disappearing from history before it’s too late.
‘To reach for a dream, even if you are struggling, is the most freeing sensation in one’s life.’~ Anubhav
Everyone is fighting.
Some over their past. Some with their present. And Some for their future.
We all have a heartbreaking past like Miraya, a disastrous present like Anubhav and an unfulfilled dream like the empty frame of Shaurya.
But all we need is the power and the optimism like Kasturi to shake it all off and live the life we want.
This book has answered many 'Whys' for me right at the moment I needed it the most.
Now all I need to do is give all of myself to the life I want, heart, soul and mind, and for the day when I can proudly say..... I am Abhyerna. And This Is My Story
This poem literally written “Early One Mourning" and is virtually one long extended metaphor. With all poems, one must pay close attention to every word...each one matters/ Early one mourning, the red sun was rising,
The grass on the hillside lay glassy with dew;
I sang on the braes like the wind in the Heather
That carries, as always, the mem'ry of you.
The mountains above me lay stilled, in their slumbers,
The valleys below me lay shrouded in mist-
And dew-pearls were clinging to webs, in the hollows,
All silver, where Earth by the moon had been kissed.
The crescent moon sank on the distant horizon
And swallows were dipping in air like the sea-
That rolled over hills like the waves of the ocean
That echoes the cry that my heart cries with me.
The rivers did murmer from grey-pebbled shallows-
And whispered the secrets my heart longed to know,
While singing a song of the anguish that follows
My soul, in its sorrow, wherever I go!
The wind was a spirit that wailed in the desert,
Lamenting and lonely for shades of the night-
That fade with the dawning, a dream of Forever
That flashes away like a falcon in flight.
The sun rose at last, at the height of its zenith,
A torch for the gods, and the shadows they cast,
And silent, I watched him awaken in glory,
For mem'ry of Darkness was over, and past.
𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙮.
She stood at the threshold of a house that had become her home. Before her, everything lay shattered.
She thought she was ahead of the game, I mean, the psychotic woman who would do anything for the one she loved was bound to win… right?
Who did she love?
Was it me?
Was it her?
I didn’t care any longer.
In the game of cat and mouse, Mackenna thought she had won. She thought she had defeated me in her war against all odds.
I was the type of odd she didn’t see coming.
I was the collateral damage that raged an inferno in her life, after all, I learned from the best.
The tables are about to turn, my love.
I’m coming for you.

Happy Monday! It's Not Supposed to be This Way by Lysa Terkheurst is quite amazing and inspiring. We all go through major challenges and life has this way of bringing about disappointments. Lysa's book takes us through one of her biggest disappointments in life and the wisdom she gained through God's grace, love, and wisdom.
Here's the synopsis: What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?
Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.
How could a book as popular as Beartown take me by surprise? Well, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I never read the cover...
I thought I was in for the underdog story of a small town hockey team, but in reality this book is so much heavier. How do a town, a team, a family, and a young woman respond after a terrible trauma?
While the events are difficult to read, the character development is SO beautiful. I ❤️ Benji.
POLICJA. Bardzo dobra książka. Ciekawy pomysł na mordercę i jak przystało na Nesbo zaskakujące rozwiązanie. Śmiem twierdzić że to jedna z najlepszych książek z cyklu z Harrym Hole. Polecam bardzo.
Czy to zwykły zbieg okoliczności, że oficer policji zostaje znaleziony martwy w miejscu dawno popełnionej zbrodni, którą badał, ale nie zdołał jej rozwikłać? Gdy w następnych miesiącach taki sam los spotyka kolejnych dwóch funkcjonariuszy, schemat postępowania mordercy staje się równie oczywisty, co potworny: brutalnym zabójstwom policjantów odpowiadają nierozwiązane zbrodnie z przeszłości. W miejscu przestępstw brakuje jakichkolwiek śladów, a wydział zabójstw właśnie stracił najlepszego śledczego.
W tym samym czasie w szpitalu leży w śpiączce ciężko ranny mężczyzna. Pilnuje go sztab policjantów, a jego tożsamość jest objęta ścisłą tajemnicą.
Happy Sunday, bib-files! I hope everyone is having as lazy of a day as I am. Went for a quick run this morning and now it’s time to literally spend the rest of the day on the couch reading 💆🏼♀️. What did everyone read this weekend?? 📚

Seasonal reads 📅
I find it both amusing and fitting to read books that refer to a particular season or time of year when it *is* that time — which is why I’m currently reading Winterlust (gifted by @greystonebooks). I said I would read it in November but... life and other books happened, I suppose 😅
A cosy Sunday snapshot ☕️ What are you reading at the moment? I've started Little Fires Everywhere this weekend

Good morning everyone! 🌞 I’m sooooo glad it’s finally the weekend!! 🎉 I am (slowly) making my way though The Goldfinch, and though it’s rather long, I’m liking it so far – I really can’t tell where it’s going! So hopefully I’ll make some good progress with that this weekend! I have a lot of admin (booooo) to do this weekend but at least I’ll feel more organised once it’s sorted 💪🏻 so wish me luck with that 😂 What does your weekend look like? Got plans to read anything? ✨📚

I’ve had the most chill day ever today. The clock just hit 7 PM, and I’m still in bed reading and listening to Harry Potter ASMR’s on repeat. Really living my best life. I didn’t take any photos today, so I hope you don’t mind a repost of my favourite photo object, my beloved book cart. Which I miss so dearly 🌝
Q: What have you been up to today? And please hit me up with your favourite ASMR videos, I’m obsessed!
I would apologize for sharing my #ReadingOutsideMyComfortZone TBR stack super late but it feels appropriate that I would share my romance stack on Valentines Day. These are the four books I selected this month. Generally I don’t gravitate towards romance but occasionally bookstagram makes me feel some FOMO so I felt like it was worth exploring.⠀
I’ve already read two of these this month - All The Ugly and Wonderful Things which was a 5 ⭐️ read and Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune which was a 3 ⭐️ read. Official reviews to come for both of those, but in the meantime I think I’m going to start Get a Life, Chloe Brown.⠀
Are you a romance reader? What are some of your all time favorites in the genre?⠀

Wow I read The Song of Achilles fast! 😍📖 Such a beautifully written book. Now I want to read more Greek stories! 🙌 Any recommendations? I could continue in the Percy Jackson series.
