🦋#currentlyreading : Becoming by Michelle Obama ... I had to wait months (with over 200 people on the waitlist) to get my hands on a copy from my local library. I’m not a political person at all by any means, nor have I ever been interested in any autobiographies, but this book has so many raving reviews and came so highly recommended by a lot of other fellow bookworms. Michelle Obama is someone I’ve long admired not only as the former First Lady but a strong, beautiful woman who exudes such style and grace and is as real as they come. . Have you read this book yet? Thoughts? . . . #becoming #michelleobama #book #books #library #librarybooks #supportyourlocallibrary #mybookfeatures #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #goodreads #instareads #igreads #books #bookish #booked #bookcommunity #booksbooksbooks #bibliophile #booklover #bookaholic #bookworm #readersofinstagram #booksofig #booknerd #bookaddict #bookclub #autobiography

📸📲 . . I Finished Normal People by Sally Rooney this morning. Normal people is a beautiful story of young people trying to find their place in the world and who they are. The two main characters navigate their emergence into adulthood is messy, realistic way and the storrytelling though there are time jumps. Loved this book - The writing is clean, doesn't draw attention to itself but is well-crafted : the author knows exactly when to cut a scene. Definitely recommend it ! I'm looking forward to reading Conversations With Friends 🤓 #normalpeople #sallyrooney #lauwrenreads #bibliophile #igreads #bookstagram #book #booklover #booknerd #bookworm #novel #bookgram #instabook #bookpic #bookaholic #bookpassion #bookoftheday #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bookphotography #igbook #readabook #greatnovel #booktography
Finally. I am finally done this beast. This story was a pain in the arse to create. I do however wander around thoughts that are similar to the spreading of too little butter over large pieces of bread. In the same respect. I am perhaps to strained dabbling in ideas and poetry and YouTube. Which have nothing really to do with my story creation. 🤔 and serve more as a distraction in thought. I digress. This story is called Jackson Miller's Endless Staircase. Following a teenage boy named Jackson, who moves into a new house. Upon adventuring through his new home. He discovers a staircase in his basement. A staircase that leads down. Down into depths not possible of the foundation of the house. Later he also finds out that the voice of a missing boy also lives down in that oily blackness. Along with a red-eyed creature with razor hands. You can find the full story at the link in my BIO which directs you to my BLOG. Please also understand that this story is an EARLY DRAFT, not a complete edited story. I guess I shouldn't say that, it is complete in its entirety as far as development goes. Just not grammar and all the tedious shit. Anyways enjoy your Friday. The full story reads about an HOUR. #horror #horrornerd #horrorfan #horrorgram #horrorfanatic #horroraddict #horrormovie #horrorfilm #horrorjunkie #horrormovies #writersofinstagram #amwriting #writer #poetry #writing #writersofig #writinginspiration #creativewriting #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #book #readingtime #readingisfun #readingislife #books #readinglist #bookworm #booklover #reading #bookstagram

📚 #RESENHA 📚 Grande Sertão Veredas Guimarães Rosa Esse #livro é com certeza um do mais importantes da nossa #literatura . No livro, Guimarães Rosa nos convida a conhecer a fundo o sertão; sua paisagem, os costumes de seu povo e até nas palavras do próprio livro, pois o escritor utilizou o idioma do próprio sertão para narrar essa história. É um pouco complicado compreender o livro, o romance é contado em primeira pessoa e de forma contínua, isso mesmo, o livro não é dividido por capítulos. Na trama encontramos Riobaldo, fazendeiro e ex-jagunço que relembra acontecimentos de sua vida; suas lutas, seus medos e seu amor reprimido por Diadorim. Ele conta sua vida a um ouvinte não identificado, a fala do outro interlocutor é apenas sugerida. Achei o livro um pouco, só um pouco, monótono e confesso que me perdi algumas vezes nesse longo monólogo. Mas mesmo assim gostei do romance, é com certeza um livro que ficará por muito tempo gravado na minha memória. Esse livro ficou por muito tempo na minha estante e só essa semana senti um impulso de lê-lo. Tentei ler ele quando era adolescente, não passei nem da primeira página, mas hoje adulto ele entra minha lista de favoritos. #📚 📚 📚# #livros #book #books #bookstagram #Leitura #nacional #brasil #sertão #cultura #clássico #brasileira #grandesertãoveredas #Guimarãesrosa

🔹¿Café o Té? A mi me gustan los dos, aunque prefiero ligeramente más el café. Y la gran pregunta: 🔹 🔹 ¿Toman alguna bebida caliente cuando leen? Yo no puedo, lo intento y falló. Siempre se me olvida la existencia de lo que sea que estoy "tomando" y me acuerdo cuando ya está frío. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 🔹 🔹 🔹 Thanks @ramandeogan for giving me this mug (two 年前發佈). 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 #books #book #libros #libros #instabooks #bibliophile #bookish #igreads #bookwhore #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #bookaccount #bookqueen #instalibros #libros #libro #yanovels #yaromance #mug #bookphotography #bookishlove #librosjuveniles #amorporloslibros #librorecomendado #booksandtea #coffeeandbooks #librosmiadiccion #bookaddict

Dorian Gray'in Portresi ||#kitapyorumu Merhabalar 🙆‍♀️ Bugün size uzun bir zamandır okuduğum ve çok sevdiğim bir kitap olan Dorian Gray'in Portresi'nin kitap yorumu ile karşınızdayım. Genellikle bende bir algı vardı, klasikler sıkıcıdır, zor okunur, anlaşılmazdır... bence bu algı kendi yaş grubumun büyük bir kesiminde vardır. Ve şunu söyleyebilirim ki bu kitap sayesinde bu algım tamamen yıkıldı hatta daha fazla okuma isteği uyandırdı. Artık her alışverişime birkaç tane dünya klasiği eklemek istiyorum. Kitabın konusuna gelecek olursak, Dorian Gray adında çok mu çok yakışıklı çok mu çok güzel bir adam var ve portresinin yapılması üzerine o portredeki genç ve güzel adamı yani kendisini kıskanıyor ve, "O hep genç ve güzel kalacak ,keşke benim yerime portre yaşlansaydı" diye bir dilekte bulunuyor. Dileğinin kabul olmasından sonra olanları okuyoruz 👀 (Bu spoiler değil, arka kapağında da yazıyor) Bence konusu çok ilgi çekici ve eminim içinizde okuma dürtüsü uyandırdı. Umarım uyandırmıştır, çünkü okumanızı çok isterim. İlk sayfalarda biraz durgun olsa da özellikle sonlara doğru meraktan elinizden bırakamıyorsunuz. Özellikle o son 😶 cidden şok oldum ve beni çok tatmin etti, çok güzeldi... Kitapta başka karakterler de var. Özellikle o felsefi ve dünya hakkındaki düşünceleri ile Lord Henry cidden beni benden aldı. Gerçekten kitaptaki çok önemli bir karakter hatta Dorian Gray'den bile değerli diyebilirim. Sadece onun düşüncelerini bile okumak başlı başına kitabı okumak için bir sebep 😍 yani demem o ki önerimdir. İnsan düşüncelerini, farklı görüşleri , güzellik ve çirkinlik algısını çok iyi yansıttığını düşünüyorum. Alıp okursanız bana yazabilirsiniz 😄 Okuyanlar varsa siz de düşüncelerinizi yazabilirsiniz 💗 #doriangrayinportresi #canyayinlari #bookstagram #oscarwilde #okudumbitti #book #kitap #booklove

“He’s still looking at me. But twenty points to Gryffindor, because I manage to smile up at him.” • • And yes,, I did listen to Dear Even Hansen on repeat (again ☺️) just for this boy as I drew him! • • Just a small drawing to try and picture how I imagined Arthur. Maybe it’s the tie and button up outfit that made him look a bit older than I like, but it’s close to what I thought. Drawing them together shows their different characteristics better. But I made sure to get in those beautiful blue eyes! • @adamsilvera @beckyalbertalli • [#whatifitsus #arthurseuss #artistsoninstagram #art #sketch #digitalart #fanart #character #book #illustration ]

#friendsfriday I have been having a hard time posting about this book, only for the reason I could not even give it the words it deserves. There has never been a book I have felt I need to read yearly. This will be a staple on my book shelf. : : @loriharder you truly are an amazing author and I hope you are planning on another book! This book has helped me be a better friend and learn how to put up boundaries. It helped me allow new and existing friendships flourish and release the ones that were not healthy. A Tribe called Bliss is about friendships, but even more about how to do life. : : If you have not read this book, I HIGHLY recommend you buy it NOW! I can promise you will take something away and if you apply it, you will begin to THRIVE! If you have read this, what is your favorite takeaway? Thank you @loriharder for this amazing gift you gave me! #atribecalledbliss #tribe #bliss #book #words #worthy #deserve #staple #bookshelf #gift #recommend #friendship #friend #friends #thrive #life #lifelessons #friendshipgoals #heal #healthy #promise #healthcoach #lifecoach

Someday I'll learn to copy my Insta captions first... So today's prompt had me stressed because it was so ambiguous. Inspiration. Then I got an idea. Then I got a little carried away. There was a stepladder involved. My first bookstagram ladder! Does that mean I'm Lvl 2 now? . . It's hard to think of books and NOT think of inspiration. Some of the words that have made me think and dream the hardest were from books. Luckily, we privileged modern readers don't have to merely scrawl out our favorite phrases and scratch our beards like the readers of olden times, because we have whole companies like #owlcrate and #fairyloot DEDICATED to making our favorite words into pretty pictures. . . A few of the books whence my favorite words came. #RedRising kind of ruined the fairy theme, but it's represented twice so I couldn't not. If you love #TheWickedKing , you need to stop sleeping on Zen Cho. I'm squealing because I just got THE TRUE QUEEN in all its shiny UK glory in the mail. It's the companion to SORCERER TO THE CROWN, one of my favorite fantasies of all time. It reads like Holly Black but it's for adults, only not too steamy, and with an ethnically diverse cast. In Victorian England. Bam. . . .

On the island of Pate, off the coast of Kenya, lives solitary, stubborn Ayaana and her mother, Munira. When a sailor named Muhidin, also an outsider, enters their lives, Ayaana finds something she has never had before: a father. But as Ayaana grows into adulthood, forces of nature and history begin to reshape her life and the island itself–from a taciturn visitor with a murky past to a sanctuary-seeking religious extremist, from dragonflies to a tsunami, from black-clad kidnappers to cultural emissaries from China. Ayaana ends up embarking on a dramatic ship’s journey to the Far East, where she will discover friends and enemies; be seduced by the charming but unreliable scion of a powerful Turkish business family; reclaim her devotion to the sea; and come to find her own tenuous place amid a landscape of beauty and violence and surprising joy. Told with a glorious lyricism and an unerring sense of compassion, The Dragonfly Sea is a transcendent story of adventure, fraught choices, and of the inexorable need for shelter in a dangerous world.
