“Facing my pallid reflection in the mirror, I was forced to admit that I was lying to myself. It wasn’t just physically that I’d never fit in.”⁣ — Stephenie Meyer ⁣⁣⁣ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣Another day, another #octobercovengoals prompt! Today’s prompt is “least favorite book/trope” and while I know it’s super cliché and snobby to hate on 𝘛𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵, I picked it because of one specific trope that I really really hate: the plain Jane. I don’t know why, but I get really irritated every time an author of script writer creates one of those female characters who’s supposed to be average looking and clumsy and awkward but is also simultaneously the most desirable person to everyone around her. ⁣ ⁣ First, there’s the whole “she doesn’t realize how beautiful she is” thing, which bothers me because it promotes this idea that women who feel confident about their looks and know that they are attractive are shallow and vapid. Then there’s the whole clumsy girl trope, whereby men are supposed to find a woman’s lack of coordination and awkwardness endearing. What’s wrong with coordinated people? Why is clumsiness so attractive to males? Added to that is the “hot guy falls for average girl” drama, which is just unrealistic. ⁣ ⁣ Of course, 𝘔𝘪𝘥𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘚𝘶𝘯 explains Edward’s fascination with Bella to a greater depth and makes it clear that at least for him, Bella’s pallid complexion and clumsiness weren’t the cause for fixation, but the original 𝘛𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘚𝘢𝘨𝘢 just doesn’t explain why every single boy in Forks is in love with Bella Swan other than the fact that she’s new in town. It’s just so unrealistic and sexist, you know? But it’s not as bad as those makeover tropes, I guess. At least people seem to like Belle the way she is, and not after she’s let her hair down and taken off her glasses and changed into a red dress and heels! 📚 ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #bibliophile #bookaddict #bookblogger #bookcommunity #bookdisplay #bookfeature #bookish #bookishphoto #booklover #bookobsessed #bookreview #books #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #hoardingbooksherdingcats #spooktober #themagicofbookstagram #twilight

Do you have a book you are planning to read on Halloween? I just finished six of crows and I’m planning to dive into the second crooked kingdom on Halloween.

Good morningggg or have a nice day babes. I wonder how are u and is there anything that makes u happy or sad? U know that already but i wanna say that again u can tell me everything u want and dont be shy. Maybe u dont wanna share these feelings with somebody that's okay dont be sad. Okay imagine that u have all superpowers and u can do whatever u want. Okay do not imagine cuz u didnt study for that so it doesnt make sense just work out for what u want then see, you can do it cuz why not everybody has a brain just improve it maybe with somebody maybe on your own just do it. Time flows and it wont stop just focus on your moment and have a bestie called book. It is so friendly. U can learn so many info via books. Then use it. It will be waiting there for you.♥️ #bts #quotes #bookstagram #book #quoteoftheday #tuesday #keşfet #loveyourself 💕 #love #kitap #friends #explore #happyday #haveaniceday #goodday #aesthetic #aestheticpics #quote #quotestagram #quotesaboutlife #quotesdaily #inspirationalquotes #booknerd #bookcommunity #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #bookclub @bangtaninboys

🎻🎻Ένα βράδυ, ένας ηθοποιός του αυλικου θεάτρου καλεί κάποιους ανθρώπους σπίτι του για διασκέδαση.εκεί τους διηγείται μια ιστορία όπου εντελώς ανεξήγητα ένας άνθρωπος, πάλι καλλιτέχνης είχε αυτοκτονήσει, όπως και ο αδερφός του που προσπαθούσε να εξιχνιασει το τι συνέβη.. Λίγες ώρες μετά και ο ίδιος ο ηθοποιός βρίσκεται νεκρός από τους καλεσμένους του. Έχει κι αυτός αυτοκτονήσει, όπως πιστεύουν.. Τι συμβαίνει? Πως συνδέονται όλοι αυτοί οι θάνατοι? Ένα πραγματικά απολαυστικό βιβλίο. Μυστήριο, αινίγματα, αλήθειες, ψέματα, φαντασία και πραγματικότητα, όλα μπλεγμένα. Οι χαρακτήρες δε σε αφήνουν να καταλήξεις ποιος λέει αλήθεια και ποιος ψέματα. Ακόμη και ο ίδιος ο αφηγητής δεν είναι καθόλου αξιόπιστος στα όσα διηγείται (πράγμα που βρήκα εξαιρετικά ευρηματικό ). Το βιβλίο αυτό χαρακτηριστηκε ως αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα, αλλά ο Perutz δε δέχθηκε ποτέ να καταχωρήσει το έργο του σε αυτή την κατηγορία. Οπως και να χει, σε όποιο είδος κι αν ανήκει, το βιβλίο είναι εξαιρετικό και με πολλή αγωνία αμείωτη ως την τελευταία του σελίδα.🎻🎻 Υ. Γ. Η επιλογή να "εμφανιστεί" Ο Κάφκα στην φωτογραφία, δεν ήταν τυχαία. Βρήκα ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέρον το πόσα κοινά είχαν οι 2 συγγραφείς (γεννήθηκαν και οι 2 στην Πράγα, συχνά τους συνεκριναν μεταξύ τους, ακόμη διάβασα ότι και οι 2 δούλεψαν στην ίδια ασφαλιστική εταιρία, την Generali!!! ),αλλά και πόσο ο Perutz φαίνεται να μην είχε τα καλύτερα να πει για τον συμπατριώτη του, μιας και όπως λέγεται στο βιβλίο, έβρισκε ακατανόητο τόσο το έργο του, όσο και το ότι είχε μεταφραστεί σε άλλες γλώσσες και θεωρούσε για τον εαυτό του ότι τον έχει παρακάμψει.. So, there you go ... "Ας ζητωκραυγαζουν τα πλήθη των αδαων μπροστά σε ένα σπουδαίο έργο τέχνης-εμένα μου φανερώνει την κατεστραμενη ψυχή του δημιουργού του. Πίσω από κάθε μεγαλειώδη σύνθεση της μουσικής, των χρωμάτων και του νου, εγώ διακρίνω τη λάμψη του θαυμαστό εκείνου κόκκινου χρώματος του αίματος, της αμαρτίας και της φωτιάς. "

It probably comes as no surprise that Christmas will look a little different this year. Due to pressures on the global supply chain, in many cases the books we have on shelves or on order are the only deliveries we will receive. That means, if there's a particular title you have your eye on, we recommend getting in early before it's gone! #ShopEarly #ShopLocal

L: Book Review 💓 Go Set a Watchman Synopsis: Following on from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman reintroduces us to older versions of the characters we loved, Scout and Atticus. Now living in 1950s New York, Scout is a grown woman with her own life and expanded way of thinking from her upbringing in the south. When she visits back home, she discovers flaws she’d never before seen in her father, and opens her eyes to the growing racial tensions in America. Review: I’ll start by saying To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favourite books and if anything this sequel made me love To Kill a Mockingbird even more. I know there has been a lot of controversy over Atticus’ character in this book, but in truth I don’t see him as a racist, he is a believable portrayal of a white southern man of 1950s America. However, for his daughter Scout, seeing her hero for the flawed human being that he is, came as a distressing realisation. In his old age, Atticus has become more resigned and defeatist, choosing to pick his battles carefully, and opting for silence when he could have used his status to demand justice. I believe Atticus’ silence is symbolic of many moments of White privilege - moments where many of us could have all done better, spoken up and taken action, but instead took the easier option and stayed silent. However flawed Atticus’s character may be, he still lands the important message that allyship starts by being open to changing your opinions and perspectives, because without this willing, no progress can be made. 🌟🌟🌟 - Go in with an open mind #BookReccos #BookReview #bibliophile #BookNerd #Bookstagrammer #CoverLove #BookCover #BookAddict #CurrentlyReading #tbr #GoodReads #BookRecommendations #BookingTogether #BookRecs #NotYourAverageBookSpam #BookObsessed #WhatImReading #BookstaBuddies #BookCommunity #BlackHistoryMonth #GoSetAWatchman #HarperLee #ToKillAMockingbird

Happy Wednesday Bookstafam! I thought today I would show not only a #womenwriterswednesday stack but a #pinkstack for #breastcancerawarenessmonth . Cancer is something that has affected everyone, we all know/love someone who has battled with it, and cancer doesn't discriminate. . Whilst there are so many other worries this year, cancer doesn't stop. I would ask that if you can, to make a donation (pennies or pounds, it all helps! ) to any cancer charity that is close to your heart, as during times likes this, cancer doesn't stop, it only makes things harder. If you can't make a donation, make a pink stack instead and raise awareness. . I've tagged some wonderful accounts to take part, but this is an open invite to anyone to have a go! . #photooftheday #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #instabooks #bibliophile #bookish #literature #bookaholic #bookphotography #bookstagrammer #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookporn #ilovebooks #readersofinstagram #bookworms #booksbooksbooks #bookcommunity #readmore #bookobsessed #booksarelife #totalbooknerd #bookstagramscotland   #readmorebooks #scottishbookstagram #bookchat

Very happy to get my hot little hands on this book today! I have been wanting to read this book, as I have heard so many good things about Dolly’s writing (I know Everything I Know About Love has a bit of a cult following ). I love a good contemporary rom-com so I am sure I will love this one! 💕 What is your latest book purchase?

Nineteen eighty four, published in 1949 is one of George Orwell's most famous works. The novel is based in the dystopian world, where Oceania (one of the world powers ) is governed by an all controlling hyper vigilant party. Even thoughts are not spared and people are monitored via their telescreen. Brainwashing people into believing propaganda is the order of the day. Loyalty to "Big brother" is enforced. Winston Smith, the protagonist longs for truth and decency. But even to think of this amounts to crime, especially when Big Brother is always watching. The novel was banned in the US for being pro-communist and in the erstwhile USSR for being the exact opposite. Upon reading the novel it becomes evident that the novel simply shows the evils of totalitarianism. The text has great political value along with a gripping narrative, making it a great read! The novel does get a little dark and intrusive at times, but the sheer brilliance with which it has been written transcends that. It is a novel that makes you question and seek parallels between the story and the world around you. #1984 #1984georgeorwell #georgeorwell #georgeorwell1984 #georgeorwellquote #orwellian #orwell #orwelliansociety #orwell1984 #penguinrandomhouse #penguinclassics #bookstagram #booklover #book #booknerd #bookcommunity #bookcommunity #bookaddict #books #booksbooksbooks #bookreview #bookrecommendations #bookrecommendation #bookreviews #bookreviewer #bookreading #bookreader #read #readersofinstagram #reading #reading #readmorebooks

Coucou mes petits poulpe, j'espère que vous allez bien ?Aujourd'hui je vais vous parler d'un manga aux tendances steampunk super intéressant! Résumé: Les êtres humains ont fait de leur planète un désert recouvert d’ordures. Le seul endroit habitable est la Mégapole, ville géante où s’entassent hommes et robots, ainsi que les mystérieux Ersatz, créatures monstrueuses pourchassées par la Milice. Dans ce monde en perdition survit Misha, jeune orpheline aux dons d’empathie sur-développés. Incapable de contrôler sa capacité à lire les émotions des autres, elle se tient à l’écart de ses semblables. C’est pourtant grâce à ce pouvoir qu’elle trouve Reborn, un robot morphing errant sans mémoire au milieu d’une décharge. Mes notes: Général: 4/5 Personnages: 4,5/5  Histoire: 4/5 Style: 3/5 Je conseille ce livre  à tout les fans de science fiction et d'univers futuristes.  #lectricecompulsive   #lire   #livrestagram   #livraddict   #lectureterminée   #livre   #lecture   #lectureaddict   #lecteur   #lecturedumoment   #lectrice   #read   #reader   #reading   #bookcommunity   #booklover   #bookshelf   #book   #bookstagramfrance   #bookstagram   #booksta   #bookaholic   #bookinstagram   #booktubeur   #bookaddict

• Photo de produits "flat lay" pour Instagram et site internet • Récemment, j'ai rencontré une instagrameuse "book addict" avec qui j'ai décidé de faire un partenariat : elle lit les bouquins, me les passe le temps d'un mois, j'en lis si je le désire (et si j'ai le temps surtout ) et je les prends en photo pour son compte insta en mentionnant les maisons d'édition et les auteurs. Ce style de photo produits est appelé "flat lay". C'est un style extrêmement créatif car chaque produit doit être accompagné d'un tableau. En rapport avec l'objet/le sujet, en rapport avec le mois de l'année ou la saison, en rapport avec un lieu, etc. Cela se fait également en photo culinaire, mais pas que. La photo de produits est quelque chose d'assez nouveau pour moi, mais qui me plait énormément ! C'est créatif, c'est diversifié, c'est un travail qui prend énormément de temps entre le moment où l'idée germe dans ma tête et l'édition finale de la photo sur mon ordinateur, et ce process en entier me parle ! #flatlayphotography #flatlay @flatlayphotographers #flatlay_photographers #flatlay_moment #flatlaylovers #creative_flatlays #flatlaygoals #flatlayinspo #flatlayinspiration #flatlaysquad #flatlaylove #flatlayoftheday #flatlaytoday #flatlayforever #flatlaystyle #flatlay #bookaddidct #bookdragon #bookworm #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #mybookishfeatures #booklove #bookcommunity #goodreads #booknerdigans

🍔🔜🥐 КЛИШЕ И БАНАЛЬЩИНА ИЛИ ЛЁГКОСТЬ И НЕПРИНУЖДЁННОСТЬ??? ✍🏻Что-то этой осенью меня так и тянет на французскую эстетику. Круассаны со сгущенкой, конечно всегда в моём сердце, но я всё же считала себя девушкой Англии! С Лондонскими дождями, Гарри Поттером, Шерлоком Холмсом, Королевской семьёй, супер красивыми мужиками и знаменитым файв-о-клок! ) Но сейчас мне видимо нужно что-то другое! Ну что ж, посмотрим! Франция, так Франция! Мы отправляемся в Париж! Новую, очаровательно банальную телесказку нам представил Нетфликс «Эмили в Париже» 10 серий по 25 минут.📽 Одного трейлера достаточно, чтобы любой понял, что это за история. Главная героиня Эмили Купер молодая американка-маркетолог, переезжает в Париж из Чикаго по работе. Её фирма занимается пиаром брендов класса люкс и она приехала для того что бы встряхнуть французский рынок американским видением.🗽 Молодая американка в Париже, до боли знакомо неправда ли, хмм... посмотрим, Кэрри была в Париже, Cерена с Блэр были в Париже, и даже Мэрилин c Одри были в Париже! Теперь очередь приключений Эмили. И сюрприз-сюприз, Эмили нам не предложит ничего нового. Картонный Париж, как с чрезмерно отфильтрованной ленты инстаграма и нереалистичная сюжетная линия, самой главной героини. Прекрасная Эмили воплотила в себе мечту практически каждой девушки, у неё есть квартира с видом, что ни день новые модные наряды, прогулки по самым популярным местам города, круассаны и вино на завтрак, походы по галереям с интересными друзьями и конечно же любовь! Фестиваль стереотипов. Самое забавное, что каждый второй знает английский язык и спокойно поддерживает беседу. Вот тут-то у французов конкретно бомбануло и они раскритиковали картину в пух и прах. Французы показаны карикатурными и ленивыми, которые только спят и видят, как бы затащить в постель, юную американку! По-моему, тут точно такая же ситуация как и с иностранными фильмами где русских показывают в шапке ушанке, с балалайкой в одной руке и медведем в другой! Американцы в очередной раз показали своё невежество и неуважение к другой культуре, и что снимать фильмы они умеют только про себя! ПРОДОЛЖЕНИЕ⤵️⤵️⤵️

➵ 1984: Um livro com críticas e reflexões atemporais l George Orwell @companhiadasletras #resenhasentimentodeleitor Quando comecei a ler 1984, não esperava me deparar com uma realidade tão assustadora e marcado pelo totalitarismo — e o pior: tão parecida com a nossa. “O grande irmão está de olho em você.” 💬 A trama acompanha Winston Smith, um funcionário do Ministério da Verdade, que trabalha “alterando o passado”. Cheio de questionamentos sobre sua realidade, Winston começa a se sentir sufocado pelo sistema vigente e começa a se rebelar (mesmo que só em seu íntimo ). Quando Winston conhece Julia, uma mulher por quem se apaixona rapidamente, os dois embarcar em uma jornada perigosa para tentar enfrentar o Partido e viver o amor que sentem um pelo outro. 👉 Com certeza, o que eu mais AMEI nesse livro foi a construção do mundo — apesar de ter me apegado aos personagens também. O sistema de dominação utilizado pelo Partido acontece através da censura, do totalitarismo, da vigilância e da alienação. Tudo isso me fez refletir sobre a sociedade atual e os nossos governantes, me fazendo pensar que a história não é tão surreal assim. 1984 vai assombrar seus sonhos e entrar na sua cabeça. De repente, você vai começar a enxergar esse livro em todos os cantos! Mesmo assim, não posso deixar de recomendar essa leitura tão necessária e urgente.

❤️ ICYMI ~ ANNOUNCEMENT (with new logo ) ❤️ For a while I've been considering changing my account name, as over time the way I've used this account has subtly changed. What started out purely as a Bookclub account, has developed into a space where I share my own reviews and thoughts, and so I thought it was about time to change the account name to reflect that ☺️ So with immediate effect, my account name is changing from @wearethecuriousbookclub to @bristolianbooks 🥳 It would be incredible if you could share these changes, as this might cause confusion, and I'd love to keep all of my existing friends ☺️ Thank you for all of your support ❤️ #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramcommunity #bookishcommunity #bookcommunity

R E V I E W ✨ The Monsters We Deserve by Marcus Sedgwick ✨ ‘Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not himself become a monster’ - Nietzsche (p 226 ) This book is a perfect, hidden gem. I had never heard of it before I picked it up and it was a total cover buy, but oh such a good one! The book is part modern gothic horror story, part literary critique, part reinterpretation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It’s also a book about a book (love those! ) and that chimes so well with the package/production of the book being part of the story with its amazing developing illustrations as chapter dividers. Love that too! It’s a book I find hard to put my finger on, but what I did find throughout is a very creepy sense of unease, of finding out where the book was taking me along with the main character (who shares a name with the author and has the same initials as Mary Shelley ) and step by step taking us further into darkness where monsters lurk, both imagined and real. I love that! This is great literary horror, and a special treat for those of us who love classics and who have debated whether classics should/can be viewed and analysed through a modern lens, and whether the author’s own idea of what the book is has any bearing of how readers are supposed to understand it. If this sounds deep, it is and it isn’t—all this is part of the treat that is this little book. The book is also just a straight forward gothic horror that stands firmly on its own two feet. Does it sound intriguing? Pick it up! I read it in one go and loved it. ★★★★☆ ••• Taut, tense, terrifying. Prizewinning author Marcus Sedgwick writes of the monsters we create in literature and in our own minds in this reappraisal of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Hᴀᴘᴘʏ Tᴜᴇsᴅᴀʏ! One of the things I’m appreciating more now that most places are closed is the park! At least for now I can still go for a walk to the park and see all the pretty autumn leaves 🍂 I made Andy take like a billion photos for me which he got bored of very quickly. Do you drag anyone into helping with your bookstagram photos? 😂 I don’t usually but I had to live my best autumnal life today and get him to take a few. Q: What are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it?🍁 ʜᴀsʜᴛᴀɢs #bookstagram #books #park #bookish #currentlyreading #reading #readersofinstagram #booktober #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #bookworm #booksofinstagram

✨QOTD: Do you own any collector’s edition books? . ✨AOTD: only one— Asunder by David Gaider (featured ). As many of you know, I adore both books and video games... and when they meet, I am in heaven! 😍 . ✨Id love to collect all the books in this special edition. Especially Masked Empire by Patrick Weekes (my second favorite ). They are a little pricey so it will have to be a slow acquisition. . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookobsessed #booklover #bookworm #bookdragon #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booksbooksbooks #videogamebooks #asunder #davidgaider #dragonage #dragonagebooks

Fun fact, I’m actually typing this at 4am because I’ve stayed up to keep reading The Rage of Dragons. Also because I got lost in Balloon Drama Tik Tok. That was a RIIIIIDE 😂 . . #qotd - What was your last read, what’s your current read, and what will your next read be? My last read was The Once and Future Witches, my current read is The Rage of Dragons and I think my next read will be The Four Winds by @kristinhannahauthor ! This book is gorgeous and sounds AMAZING! Thank you @stmartinspress for sending me a copy. Synopsis below! . . TBR sign is from the amazing @bookish_signs - make sure you check her shop and use ERIN10 to save! . . Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance. . In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation. . . ——— . #historicalfiction #krıstınhannah #thenightingale #stmartinspress #bookmail #bookhaul #bookstack #beautifulbooks #prettybooks #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booksofig #booksofinsta #bookaholic #bookfeature
