In the first few weeks of quarantine, I was too anxious to read, let alone write. A book that began with a 20-year-old man being confined inside an iron lung machine didn’t seem like the book to attempt right now. And yet. I watched this man—the author, @caro.llewellyn’s father—fall in love and build an art empire and gaze at the sea and raise a human I am lucky enough to have worked with in the book world of New York. Caro’s own journey from Australia to London to New York to Paris and back again made me forget I was stuck at home and remember the world as it was: full of leaps, if you’re brave enough to make them. I can’t wait to discuss her @thestellaprize shortlisted memoir, “Diving Into Glass,” as part of Caro’s new author series, Together Remotely.

✨The Horse and His Boy is possibly my least favourite I’ve read so far. I enjoyed seeing the Pevensy’s again and Mr Tumnus. The story was good but I missed the familiarity of the others characters we meet in these stories. . What’s your favourite story from The Chronicles of Narnia? I think mine is Prince Caspian . #thehorseandhisboy #cslewis #bookish #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #narnia #chroniclesofnarnia #read #reads #reader #reading #aprilreads

Do you hate it when you have a book on your TBR sooo long that the trilogy finishes before you pick it 😂 This happens all the time and then it’s too daunting because now there are sequels to buy as well! Yep way too many books and no time at all!! #read #reads #reader #reading #book #books #bookish #booklover #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworm #booklion #bookdragon #bookowl #shadowofthefox

A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal by Ben Macintyre (2014) Non-fiction about Kim Philby, infamous member of the Cambridge Five, who spied on Britain from within MI6 for thirty years. Initial thoughts: 1. Another @Paryslu recommendation. One thing I love about my family is that, with the exception of Christopher (who isn’t on Instagram so cannot be wounded by the coming spurn), they all give the most excellent book recommendations. (Christopher only seems to read dense philosophical tracts. We ignore his recommendations.) 2. Okay so I’m not into spies, but I AM into the British upper class and the effect of boarding schools on interpersonal relationships, so this played right into my interests. 3. Good non-fiction is just marvellous. I gasped several times while reading this. 4. Cocktails! Intrigue! Marry your secretary because no one else can be trusted! Beirut! Istanbul! Long boozy lunches! Whisking informers out of Nazi clutches! Protocol, there’s no time for that! “Let’s hire him, I knew his father at Eton!” “How do these wily Ruskies keep bamboozling us? It’s almost as if they have EXTREMELY POWERFUL LONG-TERM SPIES!” 5. I sort of didn’t realise that both Graham Greene and John Le Carre were spies. Apparently Greene actually got in a lot of trouble for Our Man in Havana (one of my favourite Greene novels) for revealing too much about the British Secret Service. I did always wonder where he got his material. Pretty cool, though. 6. Swipe right for pictures of anyone I thought was even mildly good looking Furthermore: This was a phenomenal look at treachery within friendship and so much fun. Recommend to fans of espionage, examinations of male friendships, and betrayal.

March reads. I always have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book going at a time; luckily I don’t seem to bug my better-half too much with these partially read books everywhere. Sadly, I haven’t read as much since I graduated from nursing school, but I’m glad to be back in full swing while still working full time. Looking forward to finishing my April reads I’ve started. Enjoy the time we have and everyone please stay healthy! P.S. I’ll be open to swapping books via mailed packages soon if anyone is interested. ✉️ #reads #books #covidsucks #nurseproud #nurselife #iloveplants 🌱

No laws while drinking claws. American Colonies The Settling of North America by Alan Taylor is a all encompassing tale of North America from 10,000 years. It’s always hard for authors to decide their narrative on native Americans. It’s usually either white man bad or natives are savages. The truth lies in the complex grey of both. I think ancient tribes are fascinating but it’s hard to find real stories and new information without picking a “team” of bias. the truth is really, really interesting, while political correctness is skull-crushingly boring. This is a long book through time and the most interesting to me was reading about different immigrants (Russian, Dutch, French, Spanish etc) and their own territories trying to cut out their piece of the North American pie early on. A vast country with wildly different climates and terrains. The settling of the America’s wasn’t without crushing difficulties and death and failures. The slave trade was brutal. Especially in some of the islands. Just wiping out forests to plant sugar cane. It’s hard to go over everything in the book. The multinational view is what was most interesting to me. But for sure have to deal with a bias in the authors view of who’s evil and who gets a hall pass.🤷 #GolfCart #Reads #WhiteClaw #History #Colonies #Natives #Scalp #Ax #mammoth #DCon #Transit #Mask #Eggs #BookShelf #Spring #SpringDownSouth #pollen #life #alive #trails #UN #cornteen #war #settle #moonshine #corn

This is my beloved Kindle 💙💛💙E-Readers are a traveling bookworm’s best friend. ⁣ ⁣ A physical book is a unique experience, but the story itself is what’s important to me, not its format. Oftentimes, a strong preference for paper books is simply from habit. That’s what the reader grew up with. One day people will claim they miss the action of scrolling when books are accessed by merely closing our eyes. ⁣ ⁣ This is where I’ve been getting my Caribbean Lit fix. Like “New Worlds, Old Ways”, and most recently, “Here Comes The Sun”. ⁣ ⁣ “Here Comes The Sun” is beautiful and heartbreaking. Nicole Dennis-Benn is a master of creating realistic characters, and using poetic metaphors to describe their relationships with each other and their environment. ⁣ ⁣ I love her use of melodic Jamaican Patwa, allowing the reader a far more intimate look into their lives than standard English. ⁣ ⁣ Anyone who has ever been to, or intends to visit, a popular vacation destination that’s also an impoverished country needs to read this. Especially if tourism is the bulk of that country’s economy. The novel does a great job of revealing the darker aspects of the lives of those who make those manufactured dreams come true.⁣ ⁣ Womanhood, love, vicious cycles, homophobia, colorism, classism, the inner lives of sex workers, and how the tourism industry is a form of colonialism are other themes this book explores. ⁣ ⁣ I’ll read this again, and I highly recommend it 🇯🇲🔥👌🏾🌊☀️👍🏾⁣ ⁣ #authorsofig #tourism #wordporn #nicoledennisbenn #poetrybooks #herecomesthesun #bookworm #bookshelf #ereader #classism #poetryaddicts #sexworkersrightsarehumanrights #homophobia #bookish #novel #reads #currentreads #nowreading #writerslife #womanhood #womenwhowrite #poetic #amazonkindle #literature #prose #creativity #bleedink #jamaica#australia #backpacking

Another perfect Sunday ⭐️ I’ve been doing this thing where I read books in one day and I’m loving it. Has quarantine made anyone else a super reader?! • • I was VERY excited to read this after seeing it everywhere, but sadly, I’m left feeling underwhelmed. Parts were seamless and well-written, but the entire time I was left hoping for more. I also strongly disliked Alix and Kelley and their incredibly toxic “white savior” attitudes, although that seemed to be the point. Idk the book just seemed to introduce these huge (and very important) social concepts and they felt underdeveloped in the end. I didn’t love it, but I think I’m an outlier here. Have you read it? What did you think?! • • • #bookstagram #books #booklover #booksconnectus #bookish #bookishlove #reading #read #reads #recentread #whatimreading #suchafunage

Happy Sunday! • I finished this wonderful book yesterday! It was such a delight to read. I have loved Marie Lu's writing style ever since reading Legend, and I was so glad to read another one of her books. This one was so different from her dystopian novels, but I loved it nonetheless. As a musician, I was so fascinated by the stories of Mozart and his sister. The premise of the book, focusing on Mozart's forgotten sister, is such an interesting idea, and Lu executed it perfectly. Sometimes the switches from real world to fantasy threw me off a bit, but I think that she did a great job of weaving together historical fiction and fantasy in a really interesting way. Overall I would highly recommend this!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Rep search. Hi @bookstabsandwicks I follow one of your past reps and saw you were looking for new reps. I figured I would throw my hat in the ring. ❤ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My name is Krista. Im a 30 year old bookworm who currently resides in sunny California. I love all things bookish but I especially love candles. Your shop has such cute candles and I would love to rep for you to help spread the word about them as. I love the different colors and scent profiles I've seen. As well as the labels you use. So clean and clear. ---‐--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lastly I'm currently surviving cabin fever by painting funkos, surfing Instagram, and reorganizing my house.

A list of all the books I'm 'currently reading'...😅 - The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Ngyuen - Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood - Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell - Go Ahead In The Rain: Notes To A Tribe Called Quest by Hanif Abdurraqib - Educated by Tara Westover - Drive Your Plow Over The Bones Of The Dead by Olga Tokarczuk - The Count Of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas . Since I've been having trouble concentrating on any one book lately, I thought instead of finding one to focus on I'd do the opposite: pick up a whole stack of books that I'm interested in, and read them all. And its working pretty well! I'll read a chapter or two from one, and switch to another, and this way my short attention span right now is working to my advantage. 🤷‍♀️ . . . . #book #books #bookstack #booknerd #booklover #bookphoto #bookphotograph #bookphotography #bookish #bookishpost #bibliophile #bookstagram #read #reads #reading #amreading #currentlyreading #readingupdate #reader #readersofinsta #readersofinstagram #readersofig #georgeorwell #homagetocatalonia #margaretatwood #aliasgrace #atribecalledquest #tarawestover

The Scorpio Races is one of my absolute favorite books. I think part of the reason is due to when I read it and what I was going through. It was 2012 and I was in a mess of a relationship with a vindictive, unpredictable boyfriend. He liked to sleep in and I'm an early riser so I'd wake up with the sun, make coffee, and take a mug and a book out to our apartment balcony where I'd read until it was time to really start the day. This book was just what I needed at the time, as it whisked me away from my reality, but also somehow gave me the confidence to leave a bad situation. . . . When @maggie_stiefvater visited Dallas back in 2017 I excitedly went to meet her and pick up her new novel, but I also had to bring this book along with me so she could sign my copy. It's now one of my favorite things I own. . . . #book #bookstagram #bookaddict #read #currentlyreading #amreading #bookclub #reads #booksofinstagram #instareads #bibliophile #igreads #epicreads #bookgeek #booknerd #ilovebooks #booksnbevs #bookphotography #bookish #booktography #bookblogger #bookishfeatures #becauseofreading #bookstagrammer #happyreading #quarantinereadschallenge

Wanted to let my husband know about what I learned in chapter 13 but instead I just asked if he could read it for himself.⁣ ⁣ This chapter is crucial and how cow’s milk 🥛 increases the chances of men getting prostate cancer. (No, my hubby does not have it thank The Lord) but education is key. ⁣Myth: cow’s milk is good for your bones and prevents osteoporosis. That is false information that dairy companies use only as a selling point. ⁣ We are also the only species that drinks from another species 🤦🏽‍♀️🐮. There are plenty of plant based milk options. We personally like almond, coconut 🥥 and pea milk.

Release date 4/7. THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF AUGUST MARCH by Aaron Jackson @garbagetroll ⁣ ⁣ ⁣My goodness how I loved this little gem of a book. It’s witty and laugh out loud funny and a little absurd and a lot weird in the BEST possible way. ⁣ ⁣ And oh is it full of lovable and quirky characters. As soon as I saw that the blurb compared it to Be Frank with Me I knew I would love it.⁣ ⁣ I had no idea what to truly expect when I cracked this book open and I’m not sure I can even properly describe it. I just adored it. My sweet spot in reading is a lovable, zany story filled with quirky and endearing characters. This one fit the bill 💯. ⁣ ⁣ 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⁣ ⁣ Thanks to @harperbooks for gifting me with a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Book Review: 💎💎💎💎/5 "I will not stay, not ever again - in a room or conversation or relationship or institution that requires me to abandon myself." . What a beautiful and truly insightful book! I found it to be a wonderful mix of a Memoir/Self Help read and will not be sharing my copy because I have filled it with highlights and notes. My favorite chapter was "Know" which talked about learning to be still and listen to yourself and your "know". This book also gave me new insight into how to parent my daughter and my sons. @glennondoyle has the most fascinating mind and enjoying tea with her and Abby would be a dream! A perfect bookclub choice because it would definitely bring much discussion...may even need two meetings to discuss it all! Found this to be such an eye opening book! . #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookblogger #booksbringjoy #untamed #glennondoyle #thedialpress #memoir #selfhelpbook #greatreads #goodreads #booknerd #booknerdssharelove #bookobsession #readabook #read #reads #bookreview #readingobsession #readingbringsjoy #bookloving #booklover #bookbub #penguinrandomhouse #bookphotography

📖 Repost: . . @whatsissyreading 27/100 The Measures of My Powers: A Memoir of Food, Misery, and Paris by Jackie Kai Ellis Source: WPL book 📖 Goodreads Rating: 3.71/5 My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 . . . “On the surface, Jackie Kai Ellis's life was the one that every woman--herself included--wanted: she was in her late twenties and married to a handsome man, she had a successful career as a designer, a home that she shared with her husband. But instead of feeling fulfilled, happy, and loved, each morning she'd wake up dreading the day ahead, searching for a way out. Depression clouded each moment, the feelings of inadequacy that had begun in childhood now consumed her, and her marriage was slowly transforming into one between two strangers: unfamiliar, childless, and empty. In this darkness, she could only find one source of light: the kitchen. Inspired by the great 20th century female food writer M.F.K. Fisher's works, it was the place Jackie escaped into herself, finding life, peace, comfort, and acceptance. This is the story of how, armed with nothing but a love of food and the words of M.F.K. Fisher, one woman begins a journey--from France to Italy, then the Congo and back again--to find herself. Along the way, she goes to pastry school in Paris, eats the most perfect apricots over the Tuscan hills, watches a family of gorillas grazing deep in the Congolese brush, has her heart broken one last time on a bridge in Lyon, and, ultimately, finds a path to joy. Told with insight and intimacy, and radiating with warmth and humour, The Measure of My Powers is an unforgettable experience of the senses.” Goodreads . . . What a beautiful book! Jackie’s story is a pure and honest telling of her trials and struggles, but also of what brings her joy and healing. And the book itself is so gorgeous; the photos, the colours, even the feel of the paper, its a book for the senses! Tastes included, the recipes had my mouth watering and my mind reeling at what it takes to bake the perfect croissant - I had no idea! Her story is one that many people can relate to and brings comfort and encouragement to those in the midst of similar struggles.

Twitter has been going wild with dress like the book covers but I’ve been thinking about starting a photo series on here of book characters. ⁣ •⁣ I give you: Alex Stern from Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo⁣ •⁣ “You couldn’t keep sidling up to death and ripping your toe in. Eventually it grabbed your ankle and tried to pull you under.”

#Repost @bookshelf7194 with @get_repost ・・・ "شعرت بشئ ما ينسحب من جسدي ببطء .. ثم يموت داخلي .. الأمل .." #عيسى_الشواف #إذما ،للكاتب #محمد_صادق ماذا ستفعل لو خرجت مؤخراََ من علاقة سامة؟ روحك منهكة، قلبك حزين، لا تملك الطاقة حتى لتنطق ببضع كلمات لأي شخص، ذكريات مؤلمة كثيرة لدرجة أنها محت كل ما هو سعيد و جميل. "عيسى" - المُخرج بحُلمه و موظف البنك بواقعه- تطلّق أخيراََ من "أسماء" التي حوّلت حياته لجحيم منذ أن تزوجا، فقد رأى في روحها السلبية الحزينة نور بسيط قرر أن يُخرجه من تلك العتمة المحيطة به لكن ما حدث كان العكس، فـ"أسماء" هي من استطاعت أن تصنع من عيسى ذا الروح المنيرة اللامعة و الحلم الجميل و الشخصية الساخرة، عيسى بائس هادئ حزين خائف دائماََ. لكن، هو الآن حر، فقد تطلّقوا اخيراََ. أين ذهبت تلك الـ"أسماء" التي كانت أول من تعرّف عليها بالجامعة و أحبها؟ ماذا حدث لها؟ كيف أصبحت علاقتهم بعد الطلاق؟ من قال أن خروجك من أي علاقة سامة يعني أنك ستكون بصحة نفسية سليمة؟! فـ"عيسى" لم يشعر ابداََ بتلك الراحة! ظلّت حياته كما هي؛ بلا ألوان، فقط الأسود و الرمادي الغامق.. إلى أن وصلته هدية عيد ميلاده ال36 و هي" عيسى الصغير"؛ نسخته من 18 سنة، جعله ينفّذ تسعة أوامر مقابل فوزه بتسعة جوائز تغيّر حياته .. لكن، كيف؟ - من هو "عيسى الصغير"؟ - ما تلك التسعة أوامر و ما هي التسع جوائز؟ - كيف تعرف أنك في علاقة سامة؟و ما طرق التعافي منها؟ - ما سر " عيسى" الذي اخفاه عن الجميع و الذي كان بداية ظهور مسحة الحزن في عينيه و شعوره -لأول مرة- بالخوف من 18 سنة؟ - "عيسى" اخطأ في الكثير من إختياراته، هل فشل في إختيار اصدقائه ايضاََ؟ . ✨✨✨✨✨✨ لم نشأ أن نُطيل في وصف الكتاب خوفاََ من حرق و لو تفصيلة بسيطة منه، فجميعنا نستحق أن نشعر -بدون سابق إنذار- بكل المشاعر الموجودة بتلك الرواية؛ حالة من الصدمة، و السعادة الممزوجة بالحزن، و الضحك المبلل بدموع البكاء، و الإمتنان لكل ما هو سيء و جميل في حياتنا. #إذما -و بدون منازع- هو الأول في قائمة أفضل كتب معرض الكتاب 2020 في رأينا. أعطانا محمد صادق هديتين - في سياق قصة كتابه- و هما 24 إجابة لـ( كيف تعرف أنك في علاقة سامة؟) كما قالت الكتب، و 23 خطوة لـ (تتعافى من علاقة سامة) ايضاََ كما قالت الكتب. و هي - من وجهة نظرنا- من ألطف ما قدّمه لنا الكاتب في كتابه. ✨✨✨✨✨✨ . . 🔹🔹تعليق بسيط 🔹🔹 🔸الأحداث مشوُّقة، و بعيدة كل البُعد عن "الملل". 🔸رواية درامية. 🔸 عدد الصفحات: 365 🔸دار النشر: #الرواق_للنشر_والتوزيع 🔆 التقييم "من خمسة نجوم": ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ . #reads #اقرأ #اقرأ_معي #ج

📖 Repost: . . Posted @withregram@stephanies_books Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada. Not sure if its because I'm too excited to start Where The Crawdads Sing, but I just kind of willed this book to be over. Not a bad read but not particularly gripping. 3/5 🤷‍♀️ . . . . . . . #aloneinberlin #hansfallada #novel #historicalnovel #fiction #read #reads #reader #reading #book #books #bookblogger #bookrecommendations #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #instabook #bookshelf #bookworm #bookclub #bookstoread #readersofinstagram #readingtime #isolationreading #isolation #isolationbookclub . #covidreads #coronareadingchallenge

Here are two of my most recent additions to my bookshelves, and two books that I hope to read at some point this Spring. After having a strange run of contemporary reads I’m finally moving back into fantasy and so these are at the top of my TBR at the moment! ❤️⠀ * ⠀ What’s one book you hope to read this Spring? ⠀ * ⠀ #books #book #bookworm #booklover #bookstagram #read #reads #reader #reading #agatheringofshadows #veschwab #infinityson #adamsilvera

Mary Higgins Clark (2000) BEFORE I SAY GOOD-BYE London. Pocket Books ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 out of 5 stars The sleeve reads, “After her husband Adam is killed when his private boat explodes, Nell McDermot is thrown into a pit of grief. She wants answers and she wants more than anything to say goodbye - but both now seem impossible. That is, until a medium contacts her claiming to be Adam's channel. When the investigation proves the explosion was not an accident but a bomb, Nell goes to visit the medium. And, soon enough, she is receiving instructions from Adam from beyond the grave. Or is she? Haunted by grief, Nell undertakes the instructions - unaware that a terrifying chain of events is about to be unleashed. With a dangerous loop closing around her, Nell doesn't realise that she might be going to meet Adam a lot sooner than she thinks …" Smashing. A proper great whodunnit. Enjoyed this one thoroughly! #MaryHigginsClark #BeforeISayGoodBye #MaryHigginsClarkBeforeISayGoodBye #Book #Books #Read #Reads #Reading #BookShelf #Library #Review #Reviews #BookReview #BookReviews #GoodReads

"Telling a story is often about obligation and sympathy, identification and empathy" (302).⠀ ⠀ I put the ebook of Emma Copley Eisenberg's The Third Rainbow Girl: The Long Life of a Double Murder in Appalachia on hold at the library primarily because the positive review I read led with the fact that it was set in West Virginia. (I grew up in WV, and there just aren't as many books set there as I'd like!)⠀ ⠀ This book blew me away. For me, it held three-pronged appeal. First, I love true crime books, and Eisenberg's investigation of the 1980 murder of two women in Pocahontas County is well investigated and thoroughly explained, with plenty of context and backstory to build up the horrors and aftershocks of the murders and the women who, as victims, are at the center of the story. Second, Einseberg REALLY "gets" West Virginia, the reasons that West Virginians take pride in their home state, the ways that it's set apart from Virginia (my current home) and, really, every other state in the U.S. And third, the book is in large part about Eisenberg herself, about the things that led her to WV and the forces that drove her away, about her own drive to understand herself and these crimes and what the twisted threads that weave it all together.⠀ ⠀ ". . . the relationship between what is believable and what is true and, further, what makes a story believable to one listener but not to another turn out to be some of the murkiest parts of human cognition" (195).⠀ ⠀ I thought The Third Rainbow Girl was beautifully written, thought provoking, insightful, and horrifyingly brilliant. It's about the nature of truth and about the stories we tell about ourselves and about others. I HIGHLY recommend this book . . . whether you were born and raised in WV or not. ⠀ ⠀ When does the setting of a book draw you to read it? Do you like true crime? Has anyone else read this one?

While staying in, like many of you, I’m doing a lot of puzzles, baking, crafts, and reading! Thank goodness for books, am I right? Just rediscovered @colleenhoover and I like this darker side of her. I loved “Verity” because it kept me guessing and still shocked me in the end. Thanks for the recommendation, @jmacsheets.
