“We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep - it’s as simple and as ordinary as that ... There’s just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds and expectations, to burst open and give us everything we’ve ever imagined .... We cherish the city, the morning; we hope, more than anything, for more.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Throwback to this beautiful book, my summer read which I forgot to post about. Michael Cunningham does a marvellous job at capturing Virginia Woolf’s style and writing in this novel that is, in a way, a meditation on Woolf’s famous Mrs Dalloway. Delving into the lives of women, of inner battles, and outer actions which don’t always align with inner desires and wishes, this is a touching book, full of little details, both beautiful and harsh. I’ll leave you with this poignant quote from the perspective of a young mother: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is almost perfect, it is almost enough, to be a young mother in a yellow kitchen touching her thick, dark hair, pregnant with another child. There are leaf shadows in the curtains; there is fresh coffee.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . .  #bookstagram #bookquotes #michaelcunningham #virginiawoolf #women #womeninliterature #life #lifeslittledetails #bookreview #summerreading #mrsdalloway
“There is nothing worse, not even the daily hell of the ghetto, than for a mother to live with such fear and uncertainty about the fates of her children.” • •  I’ve read hundreds of historical fictions but this one was different. I found this one a little difficult to get through, not because it was bad, but because it was so heartbreaking and realistic. I think because it is based on true events that I kept putting myself in their shoes and I had to take multiple breaks throughout the book.  The novel is about a Polish-Jewish family who get separated in WWII. Each chapter rotated between the family members throughout the years of the war.  The two characters that I most felt for were Felicia and Addy. They both were the loneliest and it was so heartbreaking. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have my mom or didn’t even know where she was. The author did a great job at describing the characters guilt, worries, and loneliness. When you’re missing your family you really do feel like you’re missing apart of you.  This novel was a heavy read but oh so worth it. Each family member suffered during the war but the one thing that motivated them was their family. I applaud Georgia Hunter for searching for her family’s history and putting it on paper. It is so important for not only her present and future family members, but also for us readers to learn about this amazing family.  I highly recommend this to everyone, even if you are not into historical novels. I’m not going to rate this book because this is a real family’s story and I find that wrong. However, I really enjoyed it. I was crying sad and happy tears for this family. I really felt like I lived through that with them. . . . .  #bookstagram #books #reading #read  #instabook #bookreview #bookshelf #reads #summerreading #bookworm #bookfriend #booklover #bookphotography #booksandflowers #cozyreading #bookcollection #bookblog #booksforlife #currentlyreading #mybookfeatures

This is a photo I took over summer at a pop up @booksparks event. It was a lot of fun and I loved hanging out with a few bookstagram friends like @spinatale @ireadergosum (who is partly in the photo lol) and @bookwnoname  I also ended up loving the two featured books at the event Daisy Jones and the Six and Like a Love Story.  This was a impromptu photo I took that I didn’t think I’d ever post but I’m glad I can share it now.  _____________________________________________ Q: Have you had a chance to meet any bookstagrammer friends irl?

Just finished "Less" by Andrew Sean Greer. This book was a depiction of both a physical and philosophical adventure, in a plea to reject the mundane. I loved how much it highlighted the importance of connection, however fleeting, and the impact of loss.  @asgreer #less #bibliophile #bookstagram #libraryfinds #queerreads #summerreading #love #loss #reading #pulitzerprize
I just finished reading " A Nearly Normal Family " by @mattiasedvardssonforf and what a thriller it was! I am still reeling from the ending of this one. I absolutely love the authors style of writing. From the minute I started this book I was hooked. I was totally consumed from start to finish. It was a very intense read and full to the brim of suspense. It is definitely in my opinion crime fiction at its best and probably one of my favourite reads this year. I love how the author told this story from the viewpoint of the father, daughter and mother. This is a murder case and the suspect is 18 year old Stella. Stellas' father is a pastor and believes his daughter has been framed. Her mother believes Stella is hiding something. There is 3 sides to this story and the truth is out there somewhere lurking. This is a fantastic masterpiece, high praise for @mattiasedvardssonforf 📚💫 #bookcommunity #bookstagram #bookish #reading #books #booknerd #book #bookphotography #ilovebooks #summerreading #bookshelf #bookgram #irishbookstagram #bookworm #bookaholics

Here, let me post something to @instagram while I’m supposed to be finishing a paper for school (ABOUT PROBLEMATIC INSTAGRAM USE 🤣) but avoiding it until I finish The Testaments because I only have a few pages left and I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN. 🙌 . . How’s your Sunday going?! 😜
« Elle pensa que même si la vie est incompréhensible, nous la traversons probablement avec le seul désir de revenir à l'enfer qui nous a engendré, et d'y habiter auprès de qui, un jour, de cet enfer, nous a sauvé. Elle essaya de se demander d'où venait cette absurde fidélité à l'horreur, mais elle s'aperçut qu'elle n'avait pas de réponse. Elle comprenait seulement que rien n'est plus fort que cet instinct de revenir là où on nous a brisé, et de répéter cet instant pendant des années. Et pensant seulement que ce qui nous a sauvé une fois pourra nous sauver à jamais. Dans un long enfer identique à celui d'où nous venons. Mais clément tout à coup. Et sans sang. » #alessandrobaricco #sanssang #litteratureitalienne #summerreading #jaimelire
Tek kelimeyle MUH-TE-ŞEM 😍 Öncelikle biraz konudan bahsedelim. Kya bataklık bölgesinde tek başına yaşamaya çalışan küçük bir kız. O kızın kendisini yabani gören kasaba halkı ve çevresindeki yabani hayatta ayakta kalmasını anlatıyor. Bir taraftan Kya büyürken diğer tarafta seneler sonra kasabada gerçekleşen bir cinayet davası var. 🐦 🌿 Yazarın doğa bilimcisi olması ile roman çok güzel bir doğa tasviri içinde geçiyor. Kuşların, kabukların, çimlerin, böceklerin bir çok özelliği aralarda çok güzel hikayeye karışmış. Öyle bir yedirilmiş ki hem göze batmıyor bilgiler hem de ana karakterin kendisini oluşturuyor bir taraftan. 🐦 🌿 Insanlara neden güvenemiyoruz? Çocukluktan yaşadıklarımız, başımıza gelenler, beklemediğimiz kişilerden yapmaz dediklerimiz... tam bir örnek hikaye. Belki de bu yüzden kendimi Kya ile özdeşleştirdim. Yaşadıklarından değil de hissettiği duygulardan.🐦 🌿 Kya kadar Tate karakterine de aşık oldum. Tüm hikayede yaptıklarıyla, sevindirmesi, üzmesiyle bile. 🐦 🌿 Son olaylarda heyecanla sonuca nasıl bağlanacağını bekledim. Kimi yerde gözler dolarak kimi yerde sevecen duygularla. 🐦 🌿 Özellikle Kya'nın karakteri beni çok etkiledi. Anlatımı, dili, konusu, kurgusuyla elimden bırakamadım. Soluksuz okudum. Kesinlikle tavsiye ediyorum. Belki seneler sonra tekrar okurum. #kyanınşarkısöylediğiyer #wherethecrawdadssing #deliaowens @salonyayinlari
As You Wish by Cary Elwes  I love the Princess Bride movie though I have never read the actual book. The movie captures true joy and adventure and I can just remember watching it with my brother over and over again. It also has some of the best one loners ever. This book As You Wish has all the same magic as the movie. Reading the behind the scene stories of how the movie got made and some of the most iconic scenes was a total blast. Some of my favorite parts of the book are when cast members tell stories about Andre the Giant and what a beautiful caring human being he was or Billy Crystal making the crew laugh constantly. Truly an fun entertaining read that I def recommend to anyone who enjoyed the movie growing up. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • • • • • • #theprincessbride #asyouwish#book #books#bookish#read#bibliophile #currentlyreading #summerreading #bookworm #booknerd#bookporn#bookstagram #bookstagrammer #instagood #instabook #instaread #bookpic #bookaddict #bookreview #bookcommunity #laugh#love#readingchallenge #bookobsessed #bookishlove

Hello lovely readers! “Beauty Queens” by Libba Bray is an amazing original satire, where beauty queens being flown to their pageant end up in a plane crash and stranded on an island. The situation itself is humorous, but Bray also adds in elements, such as advertisements and witty commentary throughout the book, as if the reader is actually watching a reality show. This book points out a lot of flaws in our consumer-driven society today, and it introduces us to the characters, all of whom turn out to be far from typical beauty queens. Don’t be put off by how strange and out there this book may seem at times, just go with the flow and look for the subtle humor in the details. It’ll be a fun read, I promise. #reading #books #yabooks #bookreviews #bookstagramer #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #bookish #bookworm #bookblogger #bookster #booklover #bookobsessed #booknerd #bookphoto #bookishfeatures #summerreading #summerreads #booknerdigans #bookishfeatures #bookphotography #cozyreads #cozyreading

A throwback to summer. 🌞 I just loved this book. 📖 💟
On my second book from this collection. The first one, The Selection, began slowly but then was difficult to put down and since then I find myself using every little second I have to read some lines so I can find what happens next 😉 Even brought it to a poolside Bingo game at the resort we're staying 😆🤞 #kieracass #theelite #theselection #booklover #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #ilovebooks #summerreading #summerread #beachbook #bingo
"Το διάβασμα μας κάνει όλους μετανάστες. Μας παίρνει μακριά από τα σπίτια μας, αλλά το σπουδαιότερο, μας βρίσκει σπίτια παντού"  #currentlyreading #bookstagram #instavivlio #instabiblia #summerreading
I read 5 books over the summer. My favourite was Circe by Madeline Miller. These were books 3 and 4 and were amazing! The doll factory is a Thriller by Elizabeth Macneal and it was so descriptive that at some points it made my stomach turn to the point that I had to stop reading and take a moment because I felt sick.  I went through all the emotions reading The toy makers and every twist and turn surprised me. Robert Dinsdale gave a new meaning to sibling rivalry! #booklover #summerreading #thedollfactory #elizabethmacneal #thriller #18thcentury #victorian #hydepark #london #art #exhibition #murder #thetoymakers #magical #robertdinsdale #toysoldiers #plottwists #siblingrivalry #war #romance #perspective #bookworm
Our hostel in Prague had a cute and comfy communal area with beanbags and lots of books so I left behind Everything I Never Told You for someone else to enjoy. An easy and enjoyable read, a little bit tame for a crime thriller in my opinion but some great emphasis on important values in life. . . . . . #books #travelling #everythinginevertoldyou #bookblogger #bookblogging #instabook #summerreading
