“The Beauty of the House is Immeasurable; it’s Kindness Infinite.” About three December’s ago, I finished “Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell” and ever since, I have been anxiously awaiting its sequel. “Piranesi” was not that, but it nevertheless did not disappoint. Piranesi is a man who lives in a house of many halls with many statues. This house is near the sea, although Piranesi never leaves it. He knows it’s by the sea because of the tides which flood many of the halls at certain times, leaving behind food for Piranesi. There are bones of thirteen former occupants, the Dead, for whom Piranesi takes offerings and tells stories. In this house, there is one seeming occupant living besides Piranesi: “the Other.” Through his conversations with the Other and his meticulous dedication to journal keeping, Piranesi realized that he does not, as he believes, remember everything. How did he come to the House? Why is the Other so different from him? This book is narrated in first person, in the form of Piranesi’s journals. First person is very difficult to get right. Often these narrators come across as vapid, narcissistic naval gazers (hellooooo Holden Caulfield! ), but not Piranesi. First person is wonderful for a character as charming as he. As a reader, I was beguiled by his sense of wonder, his naïveté, and his deep love of his world. I wanted to know him more deeply, so I adored the first person point of view. Have you read Piranesi or any of Susanna Clarke’s other books? I think “The Ladies of Grace Adieu” is in the cards for me before year’s end. #piranesi #susannaclarke #2020publications #storyofahouse #omnibedfordsprings #fallfolige #readingoutside #darkacademia #bookstagram

When I’m feeling uninspired I create poem/word “mood boards” I guess I could call them “mood poems” or “prompt poems.” The point of these poems is to stimulate my senses & my subconscious in order to find what will inspire me next! For example, based on this mood poem, I think I may write about Heaven VS hell and ‘Paradise Lost’ next! Maybe I’ll depict it using summer raspberries VS blackberry winter ~Elle 🦋🦐 • • • • #poetryprompt   #poetryprompts   #poetrypromptschallenge   #poetry   #writing   #poetrycommunity   #poetsofinstagram   #writersofinstagram   #writerscommunity   #quotes   #quote   #darkacademia   #lightacademiaaesthetic   #lightacademia   #strawberryaesthetic   #poem   #poems   #philosophy   #philosophymajor   #writersblock   #writersblockbegone   #writingtips   #writingtipsandtricks   #poetrytips   #writerscommunity   #wordpress   #wordpressblogger   #fruitaesthetic   #oscarwilde   #strawberry 🍓  #ovid

qotd: what do you do when you go on study breaks or have free time? . . . aotd: recently I found myself addicted to tiktok. Even though I’m not on book tiktok, I am on Wattpad tiktok. Which is mainly because my friend sends me things that relate to us when we were in high school. It’s so funny but I found it a great way to give my mind some break from studying, writing essays, and planning lessons. I need to find something else though because looking at a screen all day long is not good for my eyes. . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #booklove #college #university #uni #student #studentlife #bibliophile #studygram #studyblr #coffee #cappuccino #macarons #studying #warmtones #beige #beigeaesthetic #notes #notability #goodnotes #coffeeshop #autumn #lightacademia #lightacademiaaesthetic #darkacademia #darkacademiaaesthetic #academia #darling

Всё не настолько плохо. надеюсь. а вообще, то, что у меня есть подобные мысли должно заставить меня задуматься о поиске психиатра, чем я и занимаюсь... ) ) )

He shares a room under the underpass with Aunt Sally and Carlo the Undertaker, The air smells of ergot and the bloody flux, but both their spots on the floor rest empty, He’d tapped the hand of a woman fat with nightingale throats on the corner of Main and Mercy and headed to Ninth for a couple of grains of spice. He measures out a thimble of holy water from St Benny’s, stolen during a congregational mass on the Prophets and Losses of Zen Zero Sum Games, Miltonism, Paradise Bought chapter twelve, verse twenty, snuck out the back during the fandango of the entrance of the Terminologists coming up the aisle at the sound of the damned. . .

— do you prefer handing in assignments or completing exams ??? honestly, exams stress me out so much & studying for them has always given me so much anxiety so despite how much assignments suck, i definitely prefer them over exams. ~ i’ve got three assignments due next week & one exam to study for so i’m vErY stResSEd right now !! i’m not really feeling confident in the presentation i have due on monday & i’m not really proud of my major history essay so far & i’m not quite sure how to fix it. i’ve been doing really well this semester & i don’t wanna screw it up by flopping in these final tasks !! next week i’m going to definitely have to spend less time reading (ugh ) & more time on my uni wok :’/ ~ not sure how i’m supposed to cut back on my reading when a conjuring of light is THIS GOOD !! with every chapter i read i’m liking holland more and more and i really don’t know how to feel about that !! i’m really enjoying the characters and their banter & everything is so fun yet terrifying at the same time !! i’m definitely going to be sad when it’s all over.

Do you remember the pre-Covid days when you could read a lovely book to your colleague in your lunch break? It's hard to believe this was back in January - such a long time since we've had a cosy lunchtime book club! ⁠ This also might be the closest we'll get to #DarkAcademia - as modelled by our most #ontrend staff, porters Horatio and Alistair. 📚⁠ Like any of the furniture here?

🖤Victorian Sorrow 🖤 ___ How is everyone doing? I've definitely not been enjoying the spooky season as much as I normally do but I think most people feel the same unfortunately. ☹ Everything feels very strange and uncertain these days, but I suppose all we can do is keep smiling and hope for better things ❤ ___ #gothicfashion #victoriangoth #victorian #edwardian #gothic #altgirl #gothgirl #mourning #historicalfiction #history #vintage #spooky #gothgoth #darkacademia #halloween #alternative #timburton #aesthetic #doll #makeup

l'autunno è la stagione dei malinconici , di quelli che si sentono protetti da nuvole imprevedibili e dall'odore pungente della terra bagnata . in autunno la vita ricomincia , i giorni si allungano , gli impegni aumentano e gli umori si fanno cupi . il freddo inizia a farsi strada tra le vie trafficate delle città , e i ragazzi in stazione alle sei del mattino lo insultano sottovoce . in autunno si riaccendono i camini e si tirano fuori dagli armadi cuffie e maglioni , e il mondo si tinge di tinte tristi , come se gli venisse applicato un filtro color seppia . è vero che l'autunno è uno state of mind ; a pochissimi piace. io sono tra quelli. è una stagione che passa anche troppo velocemente , per i miei gusti . vivrei di autunni eterni , con qualche sole in più magari. ma alla fine trovo me stessa solo sotto ai cieli grigi , cieli che ti chiedono un confronto , cieli contro cui devi sbattere la testa . molto scontatamente , in autunno , finisco sempre per ascoltare "autumn leaves" di ed sheeran . ormai succede da anni. e c'e questa frase nella canzone : "Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?" (ti chiedi mai se le stelle brillano per te? ). Penso sia un pensiero molto autunnale ; solo in periodi che ti richiedono una riflessione ti possono venire certe domande esistenziali . e a me queste domande piacciono. #scrivere #darkacademia #autumn #rainydays

This is the most beautiful room in York Art Gallery, which is a fairly small but worthwhile place to visit — especially for their exhibition of Yorkshire artwork throughout the years. Swipe for ‘Egyptian Head Disappearing into Descending Clouds’ (1961 ) by David Hockney and for an on-brand abstract selfie of myself ✌️

hi there! a different(ish ) sort of photo today! 🌾🍂🌾🍂 I’m a quarter way through AKOFAF and desperately don’t want it to end but I absolutely CANNOT stop reading 🥺 qotd: do you wait until all the books in a series is released AND THEN read it? Or read as it releases??? 🤠 idk anyone who waits until the whole series is out! that’s some next level patience 😂 but if I read as it releases I tend to read a little bit slower than usual! (To savour it lolol ) (PERSEPHONE by @rdcandleco is featured! You can use LREADS10 to save! If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that it’s my go-to candle shop hehe ) . . . . . . .

In school I was never a Shakespeare fan. I hated the stereotypes of women that were portrayed in his works (and still hate them in modern works—sorry John Green fans ). 🙈 But when I visited Stratford-upon-Avon, where Shakespeare grew up, I understood a bit of the magic behind his writing and how it has inspired so many other writers after him. So I’ve decided to give his work another shot. 🤗✍️ Do you like Shakespeare? What’s your favorite of his works (I need recommendations )! 📚

So real quick, yesterday evening I was doing a bit of brainstorming on this account and I might begin photographing more than flatlays and desk setups. 💫I’ll still photograph those of course, but I want to expand my content a bit more and add more variety 🍂Gotta take more photos though since I’m running out hahah. 🎞Soooo rereads... have to be honest, haven’t done one in a looong time 😅 actually don’t remember when was the last time lol But this autumn/winter I definitely want to dive again into some books I adore✨Mainly the ones on the desk there 🙈 The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rungs especially is a priority since I feel like it’s perfect for the whole autumn vibe 💫🍂 The Shades of Magic trilogy I’ve also been itching to just dive head first onto it hahah cause my reading experience was honestly an amazing one (and very stressful dare I say when the stakes were upping ), also I miss Kell and Lila (and Rhy who was just so amazing 👌 ) 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagrammer #booking #lifestyle #thehobbit #jrrtolkien #autumnreading #rereads #darkacademia #darkacademiaaesthetic #cottagecore #lightacademia #autumnvibes 🍁 #englishliterature #classiclit #classicbooks #fantasybooks #lordoftherings #sherlockholmes #mystery #literaturelover #booknerd #bookworm #bibliophiles #bookishlife #desksetup #deskdecor #deskspace #cozyspaces #booksandcandles #bookishphotography

Grassmarket became the official site of public executions in Edinburgh in 1660 and remained so for over a century. It’s probably no surprise then that ghost sightings are a regular occurrence there, with reports of mysterious noises, slamming doors, shadowy figures and even disembodied limbs.
