🎅⛄🎄 . . It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...and there’s no better way to welcome December than decorating the Christmas tree and then visiting the nearby mall which is fully decorated and festive! Well, there might be other ways too but this is what I did 😅. . . HAPPY December to you all! . . 💭Tell me your favorite Christmas themed movie! I need some recommendations. . . . #thepapermagician #christmas #christmastree

🔪 Her Every Fear ~ 5 🌟. . . "When bad things happened, the world always looked". . Kate and Corbin are cousins. Kate lives in London and Corbin lives in Boston. Corbin has business that he has to do in London so he offers Kate to switch apartments for six months. When Kate arrives to Corbin's apartment, the police are there and they claim that the woman next door has been murdered. After further investigation, Corbin becomes the main suspect as he left right after his neighbor died and Kate feels more confused than ever... Little to say that this book was mesmerizing. I was enraptured by the story as the past of every hero was unfolding before my very eyes. It was definitely intense and addictive (that is coming from a person who isn't an avid thriller/suspense novel-reader). Highly recommend it. . . @grimanii_k 💕 you're amazing . . . #hereveryfear #thriller #suspense #noelias_thoughts🐥 #trackmypost

🎨 Love, Life And The List ~5 🌟. . . “That we can only control ourselves. No matter how much we wish we could twist and bend someone’s will to ours, they have to want it too”. . It spoke to my heart! Well that didn't come as a surprise. I love Kasie West's books and this one was no exception! So heart-warming and many parts of it hit a bit too close to home. The right amount of funny, dramatic and romantic moments wrapped up in a beautiful story about change, overcoming fears and trying new things. . . #kasiewest #lovelifeandthelist #noelias_thoughts🐥 #trackmypost #coffee

“if you ask me, the best way to go about flying is to cut the strings tying you down ” ― Renee Ahdieh, The Rose & the Dagger. . . ✈ If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? . . I would love to visit Austria! I got the craze from reading The Chalet School series which is set there & has beautiful descriptions that made me fall in love with the country even without seeing it. . HAPPY TUESDAY!

💫The Forbidden Wish ~ 5 🌟. . “You can’t choose what happens to you, but you can choose who you become because of it. ~Aladdin”. . . The title caught my eye from the very first time I came across this book. Both the words "forbidden" & "wish" in one sentence...it got me so curious. And then it was the premise that this actually was a retelling of Aladdin's fairytale from Jinni's perspective, I mean come on, who wouldn't be interested! So long story short, it made a huge impression on me and I got it. I'm happy to say that I didn't regret it! Apart from the fact that once I started it, I couldn't put it down, I had the amazing experience of buddyreading it with Maria, my fellow Greek bookstagrammer and author aka @love_for_books_only ♥. Little to say that we had a blast reading it and talking about it. It bewitched me! Such a beautiful and magical story, in which a simple, ordinary boy & a Jinni begin a dream journey to conquer freedom and happiness. Through the everyday magic of insignificant - seeming - things, they find love in each other and...well, spoilers! So just go and read it already! . . @grimanii_k ❤ . . #theforbiddenwish #aladdin #noelias_thoughts🐥

“Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.” ― Gabriel Garcia Marquez , Love in the Time of Cholera . . There are some books that you read and read and every time you discover something new without losing your interest. That's Love in The Time of Cholera for me! . . 💭 What's one book that you enjoy rereading every once in a while? Have you ever found new details you missed the first time while rereading it? . .

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson . . Hello and happy Sunday! . Was it a relaxing day for you or were you studying/working? I decided to take the day off of everything even though I had plenty to do. The reason why I did that was because something small & seemingly insignificant began to nag at me so I found myself annoyed and was struggling to focus on what I had to finish. . . 💭 Do you often feel like you have to take a step back because the day is leading you to a serious burnout? How do you cope with it? . . Edit: @grimanii_k 🌺 . #hunted #beautyandthebeast #sunday #trackmypost

Happy Sunday 😃 . . "I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.". ~Paulo Coelho . This week has been a storm for me. I’m hoping I’m getting closer to the eye of the storm so that it can be finished soon. I need a rainbow already. In other news, I started my buddy read of Six Of Crows with Emma @loveofboooks (actually reread) in preparation for the next book which is sitting on my tbr pile for so long 🙈 We're only a couple chapters in, but it's already so good, even better than the first time! . . 💭 Did anything surprise you today (or this week)? And if so, in a positive or negative way? . . Edit: @grimanii_k 🌺 . . #beautyandthebeast #funkopop #bookdragon #trackmypost

“Nice things don’t happen in storybooks. Or when they do happen, something bad happens next.

🌟 4 wanderlost stars 🌟 "Loveyoubye." Such a lovable contemporary! It was so sweet and light, so fun! I loved Aubree's journey into becoming an independent and responsible young woman and her relationship with Sam was the cutest! Also the descriptions were beautiful and on point, they didn't tire me at all, on the contrary, it was like I was there as a member of the tour, experiencing all the European sights. I must admit that I achieved a brief escape from reality with this lovely book. Can't wait to read more from this author! . . 💭 Where have you traveled to and which places did you like the most? . .

Hello everyone 😃 . What is your favorite book of the year? I need recommendations because I think I'm falling down the rabbit hole of a reading slump and that's upsetting. . On another note, I started a new series which is called "The Good Doctor". Has anyone seen it yet & what are your thoughts? . . 🌹 Thank you @grimanii_k for the edit! . . #alltheuglyandwonderfulthings #bibliophile #bookaddict

🌟 Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine 🌟 . “If someone asks you how you are, you are meant to say FINE. You are not meant to say that you cried yourself to sleep last night because you hadn't spoken to another person for two consecutive days. FINE is what you say.” . . This book has already received an award but I will give it another one! It was the most engrossing story I've read this year with a very well-developed plot and believable characters that engaged me from the first page to the last! I could easily let go of the fact that Eleanor exists only in the realm of fiction and I could connect with her on a deep emotional level, as I would with a friend. It was probably the closest I've ever felt to a character and that surprised me pleasantly. I can't praise this book enough and I'm shocked it's a debut! I'm really looking forward to exploring the upcoming novels of this author! I gave it 10 bright stars!! ⭐ . . 💭 Have you read it? What do you think of it? . . ❤ Thank you dear Nadira @nadirasworld for the recommendation! It was an exquisite one! . . 🌹 Thank you @grimanii_k for the edit! . . #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #noelias_thoughts🐥 #bibliophile #bookaddict #bookstagram #reading

🌟Wait for it🌟 . 5 stars & I loved it even more than "The Wall of Winnipeg and Me"! Diana, our main character, is that smart mouthed sassy heroine you can’t help but love and support with all your heart throughout the story. Her inner monologues were the best thing about this book and had me laughing out loud and get too attached to her. Both her character and Dallas's were excellent and their relationship has such a realistic growth I deeply appreciated! Ms. Zapata really is the queen of slow burn romance. I was never bored and felt so sad when it was over! I can see myself wanting to reread this one in the future. More books by her pleeeasseeee!!! .

Hello everyone 😃 . My goodness, we're halfway through the year already. Summer has made its way to our doorstep, but it has been raining a fair amount this month (well it has been raining a looot ☔). I'm not complaining though, rain is perfect for staying inside and studying/reading! . What are you doing? Are you done with your exams/school/university for the summer? What are your vacation plans? . Edit: @grimanii_k 💜
