When I saw that @viragopress was celebrating their 40th birthday by releasing new, beautiful editions of some of their books I practically skipped to the bookshop. I mean, just look at how beautiful this one is! . . I have never read anything by Rebecca West but I was instantly drawn to this tale of a shell shocked soldier who returns home with no memory of the last few year's of his life...and in love with a woman who definitely isn't his wife! #vmc40 #bookstagram #rebeccawest #viragopress #viragomodernclassics #booksthatmatter #bookishinsta #readmore #newbookday #newbookalert #prettybooks #bibliophile #alwaysreading #springdays #mayweather #inthegarden #bookishlove #embracingtheseasons #bookworm

"Let us again pretend that life is a solid substance, shaped like a globe, which we turn about in our fingers. Let us pretend that we can make out a plain and logical story, so that when one matter is despatched—love for instance—we go on, in an orderly manner, to the next." Virginia Woolf, The Waves 🌊🌊🌊 . . . Everytime I try to think of words to describe this book I can't. It seems to exist on a level of its own free from comparison. When I first read it, I felt as though a new perspective had opened up, and I have never been the same since. #bookstagram #virginiawoolf #thewaves #vintageclassics #bookreview #virginiawoolfquotes #bookpic #modernliterature #bookishlove #readwomen #booksthatmatter #booksoninstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #vintagebooks #waves #bythesea #seasideview

I was walking home from work the other day when I realised that Anthony Trollope actually worked in Custom House in Belfast. That's his blue plaque in the background! Which is a coincidence because I have been slowly working my way through Barchester Towers for the last few weeks. I've been enjoying slowing down the pace with this book. #bookstagram #belfastarchitecture #anthonytrollope #customhousesquare #belfast #penguinbooks #penguinclassics #classicbooks #victorianlife #victorianliterature #booksinthewild #booksoninstagram #bookclub #flaneuse #whatimreading #lifeinthecity #visitbelfast #belfastlife #bookishlove #bibliophile #bookworm

Coffee, Book, Croissant, Repeat! There's probably 100 variations of this photo on my Instagram, but it really is my happy place so I can confidently predict I will share a few more 😉 What's your favourite thing to photograph? #bookstagram #booksandcoffee #happyplace #coffeetime #bookphotography #caffenero #bookishinsta #bibliophilia #aprilbookstagram #bookworm #coffeeshop #bookishfeatures #booksarebetter #bookishpost #readmore #anthonytrollope #barchester #penguinclassics #classicbooks #bookishphoto #victorianliterature #belfast #inspiremyfeed

On this day in 1816, Charlotte Brontë was born in Thornton in Yorkshire. This is one of my favourite editions of her novel Vilette it's from 1905 and it has coloured illustrations by Edmund Dulac inside. Plus I found it in a charity shop. Happy Birthday Charlotte! #bookstagram #charlottebrontë #onthisday #happybirthday #villette #prettybooks #oldbooks #edmunddulac #illustration #booksilove #bibliophile #interestingbook #bookish #weekendreading #readingisfun #charlottebrontebirthday #bookflatlay #littlebitsof_life #flashesofdelight

Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery was the perfect place to spend an afternoon. I loved wandering the halls looking at French Impressionism and Glaswegian Art. The place feels grand and full of heritage and the best bit is that it's totally free to visit! #travelgram #glasgow #artgallery #museums #artgram #travelpic #victorianarchitecture #glasgowlife #kelvingrove #weekendaway #bookstagram #visitscotland #scotlandisbeautiful #culturevulture #glasgowcity #travelgirls #wanderlust #traveluk #travelgoals #littlebitsof_life #lifethroughalens

You know in Beauty and the Beast when Belle visits that sweet bookshop and slides along on the book ladder? Yeah...I think I found that exact bookshop in Glasgow. Except there's even a spiral staircase here too! #bookshop #dreamhouse #bookstagram #bookshelves #booklady #bookishlove #independentbookstore #bookclub #bookishlove #beautyandthebeast #bibliophile #glasgowlife #bookclub #bookshelf #booksamillion #liveauthentic #travelgram #readingisfun #independentbookshop

Happy Sunday from (almost) Sunny Glasgow! I am always fascinated by books that were written during the conflict they describe. Like this one by Steinbeck that describes the invasion of a "country long at peace". He wrote it during WWII before he knew how the war would end and so there's an added level of suspense throughout. #bookstagram #steinbeck #johnsteinbeck #themoonisdown #bookish #whatimreading #sundayreads #bookphotography #booksoutside #booklist #booklovers #bibliophilia #bookblogger #bookpages #littlebitsof_life #glasgow #kelvingrove
