my baby graduated from high school this week (😭), so it seemed an opportune time to read: EDUCATED by tara westover (memoir) reconciling years of abuse with love for & loss of family + sad, searing, & ultimately triumphant = 👍🏻❤️ ✏️ “...it is this fact, more than any other, that makes my family different: we don’t go to school.” ✏️ “My life was narrated for me by others. Their voices were forceful, emphatic, absolute. It had never occurred to me that my voice might be as strong as theirs.” ✏️ #educated #tarawestover #memoir #whatiread #becausereading #bibliophile #littlebookreviews #books #readingisfun #readinglist #readingrules #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #instaread #ilovebooks #voraciousreader #readbooks #instabooks #readabook #readmore #readmorebooks #igreads #thefinchbook #whattoread #whattoreadnext #reader #brettlikes👍🏻❤️

Hey lovelies 💞✨ How was your weekend? Mine was pretty quiet, and I managed to finish a few books including To Kill A Kingdom. What did you guys do this weekend?

Before selecting Northanger Abbey as my next read, I'd only read one other Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice, which I more or less knew by heart from watching various film and tv adaptations of it repeatedly. Reading Northanger Abbey, however, was a completely different reading experience as I knew practically nothing about the story, and I was pleasantly surprised at how emotionally involved I was in the story of Catherine Morland, who leaves her rural childhood home to go to the bustling city of Bath. The introduction of a gothic setting and storyline in the second part of the novel worked very well and made me think of Jane Eyre arriving at Thornfield Hall. I'll admit that the reason I picked this novel was in part due to the fact that the protagonist and I share the same first name, our brothers are both called James and I was born in Bath... so it was basically written for me, right? 😉 . What did you think of it, if you've read it? I'm very interested in reading more Austen, so I'd love to know which of her novels you'd recommend! . . #northangerabbey #janeausten #cherryblossom #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookstagramfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #libraryofbookstagram #bookporn #igreads #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #bookfeaturepage #thefinchbook #whatiread #reading

One of the last Shirley Jackson novels I haven't read but I can't bring myself to read it because it means getting one book closer to having no Shirley Jackson left to read ya dig? I'm like that with tv shows as well—RIP all those shows I've never finished because I didn't want them to end . . . #thebirdsnest #shirleyjackson #penguinmodernclassics #penguinbooks #penguinclassics #bookflatlay #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bibliophile #met_createchange #thefinchbook #bookclubcollective #igbooks #igreads #booklovers

let the summer poolside reading commence! 😎 ☀️ LOVE AND OTHER WORDS by christina lauren (fiction) flows easily between a beautiful young friendship turned to love & untying the knots of misunderstandings & heartbreak as adults + while love stories are not typically my genre, i quite liked this one = 👍🏻 ☀️ “I worry that Elliot is right and I’m wrong and—like always—he’s taking care of both of our hearts while I flop around, trying to figure it all out.” ☀️ “Boyfriend didn’t seem to cover it. Elliot was kind of my Everyfriend.” ☀️ #loveandotherwords #christinalauren #summerreadinglist #poolsidereading #whatiread #becausereading #bibliophile #littlebookreviews #readingisfun #readinglist #readingrules #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #instaread #ilovebooks #voraciousreader #readbooks #instabooks #readabook #readmore #readmorebooks #igreads #thefinchbook #whattoread #whattoreadnext #reader #brettlikes👍🏻

Hey lovelies 💞 I absolutely love these editions but I still haven't gotten around to reading them. I do hope to read more classics this summer, but I'm still deciding where to start. What are your favorite classics?

Book Review : . Book 2️⃣1️⃣ of 2018 . . This is my first Dostoevsky, I had always imagined whenever I would read him I would be moved to tears. Sadly , that did not happen, it could just me, because all the ratings on good reads for this book say it's splendid. . . This is Dostoevsky lesser known short story, also known as 'A Gentle Creature'. For me, this book is all about, what one should not do in a marriage - be an egoist , assume about your partners feelings. It's also a story of how even if two good people come together to be unified through sanctity of marriage, how it can end up bad making them unhappy. This story first appeared in Dostoevsky's journal, The Diary of A Writer. Synopsis : A fourty one year, pawnbroker rescues a sixteen year old orphan girl from her evil aunts. The girl is about to be forced to become a third wife for an old merchant. The pawnbroker decides to rescue her, thinking he who is well versed in Goethe and of noble birth would be better for her than the merchant. . . . . Rating 3/5 . #jottedramblingsreviews . . #igbooks #igreads #bookblogger #ilovereading #booksofinstagram #fyodordostoyevsky #unitedbookstagram #rusticphotography #booksofig #aestheticfeed #ilovereading #cappuchino #booksandcoffee #thefinchbook #metcreate_change #bookstagramindia #booklover #reading #readfrommybookshelf #penguinblackclassics #littleblackclassics #booknerd #bookphotography #pursuepretty #bangaloreblogger

“Harry Potter was a highly unusual boy in many ways. For one thing, he hated the summer holidays more than any other time of year. For another, he really wanted to do his homework, but was forced to do it in secret, in the dead of night. And he also happened to be a wizard.”-JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Happy Saturday bookworms 😊 it feels like ages since I last posted but today called for a post I think. What with all of the studying I’m doing these days there is little time for reading in the proper, enjoyable sense and I was craving a good dose of escapism. There’s no comfort read quite like Harry Potter. It takes me right back to my eleven year old self, reading my books in the dead of night and waiting for school holidays to finish so I could get back to school. Did you love school as a child or did you never want the holidays to end? #books #reading #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #lovereading #bookfeaturepage #goodreads #vsco #vscobooks #vscoreads #met_createchange #bookclubcollective #quotes #jkrowling #harrypotter #childrensliterature #fantasy #bibliophile #booknerd #literary #lifestyle #bookaddict #booksandcoffee #readingjournal #currentlyreading #thefinchbook #igreads #readersofinstagram #culturetripbooks

I had a nightmare as I was about to finish The Devils, the kind where I had to force myself to scream so I could wake up. In the dream, a shadowy figure was approaching. His face was covered and all I could see was his eyes and ridged brows. He slowly started to reveal his face and I knew I had to wake up before I saw it. ▪️The novel is never this literal. It's a sprawling story of possession by misguided beliefs, political and moral. A secret society of young radicals plan to overthrow the system through fear, a fear so consuming that the masses would easily welcome any form of salvation even if it meant losing free will. Free will, atheism, and literature all come in to play as the devils are revealed in the second act. ▪️ I loved it—6 stars even—but really how does one rate the classics or to be particular, any of Dostoevsky's big books? It is an important work; it is necessary. ▪️"You cannot imagine what sorrow and anger seize one's whole soul when a great idea, which one has long and piously revered, is picked up by some bunglers and dragged into the street, to more fools like themselves, and one suddenly meets it in the flea market, unrecognizable, dirty, askew, absurdly presented, without proportion, without harmony, a toy for stupid children."

Happy Friday! Any jigsaw puzzle fans out there? We have been slowing working on a puzzle of wonderful cream tea, cake & other goodies. We finished it just in time for last week’s Royal Wedding! — When I think cream tea, I always think of home. I’m heading back to the UK for a few weeks next month & decided this Bryson read was appropriate to get me in the home spirit. Do any UK BG folks have any suggestions for bookish events happening in London next month? — Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend! 🎉
