At last, after nearly 5 months, I finally finished Perdido Street Station! (I would have finished it sooner, but I hit a few slow patches and put the book down for a bit, and there were many times where my brain was just too tired to deal with the dense prose. ) I give it a 3.5 out of 5; overall, I liked it a lot, but with some misgivings. First things first, it’s obvious that Miéville’s strong suit is both in his world-building and in his word-smithing; there were many times when I would marvel at both the gloriously-imagined city of New Crobuzon (described down to the most minute detail, at times overbearingly so ), as well as some of the brilliant concepts described within the book — some of my favorites included the freakish gangster Mr. Motley, the tortured-looking Remade, the horrific after-effects of torque energy, and of course, the giant, dimension-hopping, forever-amused spider, The Weaver. However, I must admit that both the plot and characters felt underdeveloped and at times not very compelling; I kept experiencing the feeling that if it were not for the elaborate description of the city and some of the dazzling ideas on display — say, if somebody chopped this down into a 300-400 page book with a more straightforward story — I probably wouldn’t have bothered reading it. And I will go on record as saying that the ending was quite unsatisfying — had it not been for the last 20 pages or so, I probably would have still considered this book a real winner. However, it is one of his earliest books, so I’d still probably give one of his other novels a shot to see if they sit better with me. #perdidostreetstation #chinamieville #newweird #book #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookcover #bookphotography #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #booknerd #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookaholic #booksbooksbooks #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #bibliophile #bookcollector

This version of #HarryPotterAndTheSorcerersStone was printed in 2001, the cover is very serious, away from the illustrations that other books in the saga have. It is so interesting to see all the editions that have come out of these books Está versión de #HarryPotterAndTheSorcerersStone fue impresa en el 2001 por Scholastic en USA, la portada es muy seria, alejada a las ilustraciones que otros libros de la saga tienen.

A massive stack of books I have gotten over the last couple weeks! 📚😍 Some pre-orders, some I’ve already read but didn’t have a hardcover, some from a grab bag, some anticipated books! Either way, a great stack! 👏 #bookstagram #bookstack #bookcollector #bookcollection #bookmail #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile

Hey, all you saps out there! (fans of Sapkowski, that is😉 ). The first of a new series called #thetoweroffools has hit my B&N in both hardcover and trade paperback forms, thanks to the good folks at #orbitbooks . I chose the hardcover option, natch (hint to you guys at Orbit...do more books with hardcovers, please. I’ll give you my money, honest. How about a set of hardcover Witcher books with the US covers? I’d be all over that, and I’m not the only one ). Anyway, this is the first book in the #hussitetrilogy , and I have no idea what it’s about, lol; but, I’ll find out soon enough. Cheers and enjoy!

Yes. Yes I am a 27 year old who loves Barbie 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ • • Hello everyone! It’s book tour day! I was lucky enough to have a chance in participating in a book tour for this delightful Barbie read! 😍 I’ve grown up with Barbie and Barbie movies and little Barbie stories. This one was a lot of fun because it was centred around Barbie in Australia and having adventures around the country- featuring adorable Quokka’s. It’s the perfect book for a Barbie lover like myself and will be released on the 1st of November 👍☺️ Thanks @scholastic_au and @mattel for allowing me the opportunity to share this book with everyone ☺️ • • #barbie #gdaybarbie #australia #childrensbooks #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #reading #bookstack #bookchallenges #bookcommunity #booksandflowers #bookshelf #prettybooks #aussiebookstagrammer #bookishlove #bookcollector

We’ve been talking a lot about moving back to Cincinnati to be closer to my family in the next year. I’m pre-sad about the idea of selling our house. I love so many things about our house, but most of all I love the custom bookshelves that we had installed when we first moved in. I know we could always rebuild shelves next time we own a home, but these bookshelves are so perfect and special, I get really sad thinking about leaving them. We didn’t really have a good idea about the design - we found a local carpenter and just said “floor to ceiling shelves that wrap around the corner.” They turned out even better than we could have hoped - we have rounded ceilings, and he added custom crown so that they fit perfectly. I just want these exact shelves everywhere I ever live! I’m in my feels, pre-nostalgic today. . . . . . #bookshelves #bookshelfie #shelfie #shelfiesunday #bookshelf #homelibrary #homelibrarygoals #builtins #bookcase #bookcases #bookshelfdecor #cozyhome #hyggehome #fromwhereisit #bookstagram #bookish #readstagram #bookcollector

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. -Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay •• She’s a bit of a disaster but I still love her.❤️

🍄QOTD: what's next on your tbr?🍄 For me, I think it'll probably be a review book, simply because they're starting to pile up again. I think I'll start with the bone shard daughter, unless something interesting turns up beforehand. 🌻 Besides review books, I want to finally get the picture of Dorian gray finished. I need to read it a few pages a day kind of thing, as I find classics a little hard to speed through. 🍁 . . . . . . #darkacademia #lightacademia #vintagevibes #shakespearebooks #bookworm #bookish #bookblogger #amreading #bookgram #instareads #bookishlove #readmorebooks #bookstagrammers #bookcollector #readinglife #bookwormproblems #bookobsessed #bedtimereading #readerforlife #bookshark #bookpicture #bookishphoto #bookreviewer #booksaremagic #bookblog #goodreads #bookster #bookishproblems #bookstagram

There's a new book on my shelves! Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking 📖✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was recommended to me by my therapist months ago but I never actually took the opportunity to buy it. But now that I'm spending way more hours indoors and working from home almost every day, I have noticed I've become even more of a quiet person. I had to train my anxiety to behave when I'm out in the busy world but now I'm kinda out of practise. So, I figured it would be a great time to pick up this book and learn about introverts and they way the concept works. I have a feeling it's going to be a great comfort read 🤍 What's the last recommendation you got?
