. "People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within." "Ejderhaların varlığına inanmayanlar ejderhalara yem olurlar. Kendi içlerinde." Bir söyleşide Ursula K. Le Guin'e bilimkurgu yazarı olmasının ona nasıl hissettirdiğini sormuşlar. "Bilimkurgunun iyi bir tanımlama olduğunu düşünmüyorum. Ben bir roman yazarıyım ve şairim. Beni kafanızda tasarladığınız o güvercin yuvasına yerleştirmeye çalışmayın, oraya sığmam çünkü her yerde dokunaçlarım var," demiş. "Mülksüzler" önce kısa öykü olarak başlamış. Ana karakterin gelişmesi için Le Guin'in elinde tuttuğu o koca betonun içindeki elması keşfetmesi yıllar almış. Amerikan yerlileri üzerine çalışan ve Columbia Üniversitesi'nde antropoloji doktorası yapan ilk kişi olan babası sayesinde Ursula, Amerikan yerlilerinin mitleriyle büyümüş. İlk 10 yıl yazdığı hiçbir kitap beğenilmediği için bilimkurgu ve fantastik edebiyata yönelmiş. 🖋 Yazar, şair, kısa öykü ve çocuk kitapları yazarı ve çevirmen Ursula K. Le Guin’in doğumgünü kutlu olsun. #ursulaleguin #sciencefiction #scifi #mu ̈lksüzler #thedispossessed #ilovebooks #booksbooksbooks #bookishphotos #libraryofinstagram #readmorebooks #booknerdigans #englishliterature #booksforever #bookstagram #womenwriters #kitap #kitapkurdu #kadinyazarlar #readmorebooks #bibliophile #readmorewomen #readingaddict #bookaccount #readstagram #literature #edebiyat #wordstoliveby #booklover #bookworm #mollamustafaoglu #womenintranslation

Because time is cruel to all, and crueler still to artists. Because visions weakens, and voices wither, and talent fades.... Because happiness is brief, and history is lasting, and in the end... everyone wants to be remembered —V.E. Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue . . • I am so excited to jump into my second @bookofthemonth pick! @veschwab . . • Available now from @torbooks . . • France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever―and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name. . . #veschwab #theinvisiblelifeofaddielarue #torbooks #thecraft #thecraftfunko #bookish #bookstagram #booknerdigans #libraryofinstagram #readordie #booklover #epicreads #bookdragon #booknerd #readersofinstagram #readersgonnaread #bookreviewer #currentlyreading #bookcommunity #booktography

Hello Bookworms! ——————————————————————————— QOTD: Do you prefer Twilight or Crave? Why? If you haven’t read the Crush series yet... QOTD 2: Would you date a vampire? Personally I enjoyed both of them to some degree. However, there are a few things I’m not crazy about in each series. I totally get stocker vibes from Edward in twilight and even more so with what I’ve heard about midnight sun🙈. The whole watching Bella sleep creeps me out! To this day I still can’t stand the idea of someone watching me sleep. Also Bella has no personality... I am not a Bella fan. In Crush, I wasn’t crazy about some of the writing. The abbreviations annoy me, I don’t know of anyone who talks in them. I also don’t like how obsessed Grace becomes with Jaxon in a WEEK. Ultimately i prefer twilight over Crush! I still think they are both fun reads despite the few annoying parts! I would recommend checking both out if you haven’t!——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— #bookstagram #booklover #bookstagrammer #booknerd #books #booksbooksbooks #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #epicreads #twilight #bookworm #bookshelf #bibliophile #currentlyreading #instabooks #booknerd #booknookstagram #yabookstagram #libraryofinstagram #crush #newadultbooks #yabooks #amreading #ireadya #igreads #stephaniemeyer #bookphotography #tracywolff #writing #writersofinstagram #yawriter

Happy Release day! Savage Lands by @staceymariebrown 🖤 Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance ° "I felt lost and found at the same time. He was everything I thought a legend would be. Overwhelming and on another plane, high above us mortals." ° Synopsis (Ch. 1 included in my bio! ): Almost twenty years after the barrier between Earth and the Otherworld fell in the Fae Wars, Budapest is balancing on the precipice. A battle for dominance is brewing between the elite fae and the privileged humans in Eastern Europe. The prejudice between the sides is bubbling with hate and violence. Nineteen-year-old human, Brexley, has grown up in privilege, but not without heartbreak. After being orphaned, she is taken in by General Markos, living in a walled city rife with power grabs and ruthless political games. Then one night the course of her life changes, and Brexley is thrown into the most feared prison in the east. Terrorhaz—where you go in but don’t come out. She must learn to live with the worst of fae and human criminals. The rule of hierarchy puts humans on the bottom, where the only way to survive each day is to make alliances with the fae. Here she meets the sexy, vicious legend, Warwick Farkas. A myth among man and fae. He is as brutal, cruel, arrogant, and as lethal as the lore says he is, ruling the prison with unchallenged authority. Brexley can’t deny an intense draw to him, one that might cost her life. If The Games don’t take her out first— A fight to the death where only one survives. ° This book sounds too 🔥🔥🔥 to be true! I cant wait to dive in. ° 🌻: What would be the most terrifying Paranormal creature to come across?

Hello everyone! It’s been such a crazy couple of days between being sick and getting my first covid test but I’m in good spirits. My days have been spent cuddling with Steven, curling up in bed, and reading romance novels. So really nothing unusual that I don’t already do in my down time. I finished Final Serenade by NN Britt a few days ago and it was so good. Very angsty and, I rarely say this, it’s sequel was somehow even better. ◼ ◼ ◼ You get to spend a day with your favorite fiction character, who is it? #bookstagram #books #bookshelves #bookish #ireadya #libraryofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookstagramflatlay #flatlay #booknerd #bookaddict #bookaesthetic #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #tbr #bookstagrammer #finalserenade #nnbritt #kindleunlimited #romancebooks #explore @nnbrittauthor

New Release ⠀ Return Billionaire to Sender by @annikamartinauthor is now LIVE! ⠀ ⠀ Blurb⠀ I may be a shy, lowly letter carrier, but when my beloved apartment building is threatened by a mysterious and reclusive billionaire, I'm willing to push the envelope. I'm going to march right up to Malcolm Blackberg's fortress of fierceness and deliver a cease-and-desist notice he can't refuse. ⠀ ⠀ Only, no sooner do I get inside his gilded doors than things go sideways--fast. I'm mistaken for Malcolm's court-ordered emotional IQ coach, as if I'm acting out a wacky postal carrier cosplay. ⠀ ⠀ They drag me in, a sacrificial lamb for the big bad. Make that big, smolderingly sexy bad. ⠀ ⠀ So I make up a lesson involving a story about our building as he glares and fumes. Can he tell that I have no idea what I'm doing?⠀ ⠀ Before I know it I'm flying around the country, up close and personality testing the most devilishly exasperating man I've ever met. ⠀ ⠀ He's scary for sure...but the way he sometimes looks at me turns my knees to jelly and has me writing love letters to his gorgeous eyes, his mouthwatering smile, his impressive...package. ⠀ ⠀ Our coaching sessions are getting hot-hot-hot, but I can't let my guard down. If he ever finds out I'm a first-class fake, I'll lose everything I've ever loved in this world...⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Download today on Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Nook!⠀ Amazon: https://amzn.to/33xcQMS⠀ Nook: https://bit.ly/343pFjA⠀ Apple: https://apple.co/2Zx3IXB⠀ Kobo: https://bit.ly/32w6bDv⠀ ⠀ Goodreads: https://bit.ly/35AiCA5⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #ReturnBillionaireToSender #AnnikaMartin #RBTSrelease #RomanticComedy #ContemporaryRomance #Alphahero #Billionaire #BritishHero #Enemiestolovers #valentineprlm @valentine_pr#bookish #bookcommunity #avidreader #bookphotography #romancebooks #booksbooksbooks #amreading #ireadromance #SheReads #libraryofinstagram #ilovebooks #bookaholic #bookpicture #igbooks #igreads #bookishfeature #NewRelease #needtoreaditnow ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Happy Tuesday, and thank you guys for all the birthday love yesterday 💖💖 It was hard to get out of bed today after a night of celebrating with cocktails at home, but I made it 😂⁠ ⁠ Have you been reading a lot lately? The weather in Lisbon is perfect to stay in with a book these days, but I've been busy with launches and giveaways, so I haven't been able to read as much as I'd like. Still, I'm enjoying The Pearl Sister, but it will probably take me more than my usual week to finish it.📚⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #readerslife #booksbooksandmorebooks #bookheaven #bookholic #bookinsta #prettybooks #booksofig #bookblogs #readmorebooks #readingismagic #bookstagramfeatures #addictedtobooks #bookreviewer #bookishthoughts #bookstacks #readersofig #whatimreadingnow #mybookfeatures #booksaremagic #bookaddict #bookcommunity #booklover #prettybooks #readingismagic #currentlyreading #bookaesthetic #alwaysreading #beautifulbooks #libraryofinstagram #prettybookplaces

Mid-read progress ✨ This book has been so unconventional in its structure and the female narratives are so well written. These stories speak to all women and I’m happy I’ve added this book to my collection. Each chapter is told from the perspective of a modern Black woman living in Britain. Their experiences living in their respective communities are well worth reading and listening to. 🍂I’m still reading this book (progress has been slower than I would’ve liked 😅 ) but I won’t forget to give a more in depth review once I’m finished. 🍂It’s already mid-October...what are your plans for the day? After a full day of therapy I’m planning to buckle down and write some book reviews. It’s always nice to wind down with something I love to do ☕️

Good morning my friends. Long time no see. I’ve been way too busy lately, that with a midterm and projects due this week I was really on the grind all of last week to get stuff done. I’m looking forward to showing you what I’ve been working on for figure drawing, though! I’m not working with nude models this time lol. My professor recently told me something that has finally helped me figure out what I want to do in this class and I’ve been really enjoying myself since. Though, this morning I’ve finally let myself have a few quiet hours to myself before I get busy, doing a little bit of reading, coffee, and animal crossing. And later I hope to watch something spooky. I am in a mood today and I think a cheesy Disney Halloween movie will be the only thing to satisfy me. In any case, I hope you guys are having a good week so far, though it may only be Tuesday. And I hope you have a cozy day. 💕 . . . #mybookfeatures #libraryofinstagram #booknerdigan #readersgram #bookies #bookphotography #bibliophile #booknerd #bookblogger #bookcommunity #bibliophile #bookstagrammer #igreads #reading #becauseofreading #fantasybooks #becauseofbooks #fantasybook #bookaesthetic #booklover #bibliophilelife #cozyvibes #autumn #rhysand #acourtofthornsandroses #acourtofmistandfury #acourtofwingsandruin #acourtofsilverflames #fantasyfiction #fantasyfiction

this weekend, i finished LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND—a short, unique book that‘s already been optioned for @netflix ... but that ending?!?! 🤨😅🤯 if you’ve read it, i gotta know—yay or nay to the end? 🌟 rating: none 📖 genre: dystopian // suspense #️⃣ pages: 256 read if you liked: BIRD BOX, GET OUT LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND was very different. i think this is one of those books that will make you scratch your head—and i believe that’s by design. it covers topics like racial bias, the end of the world, fear, governmental control, technology addition and more. it’s truly a perfect choice for a book club, and i think it’d be great as a movie. i heard Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts are rumored to star in it 👀👀👀 it’s about a white, married couple and their two kids who decide to escape NYC to a remote town for a weekend. after a few days there, an older Black couple shows up at the Airbnb and ask to be let in, claiming that they’re the homeowners. they explain that they were just in NYC and there’s a blackout/something terrible is happening and they didn’t know where else to go. what?!?! would you believe them + let them in with no proof? afterwards, weird things start to happen. there’s a loud boom outside, the son starts to get sick and lose all of his teeth, hundreds of deer show up in the clearing outside, and flamingos appear out of nowhere in their backyard. it’s seriously wild 😂 i have no idea how to rate this book or even how to write a review. it started so strong and then it literally just “ended”—but the more i ponder on it, i believe that was a metaphor for us here on earth. it’s surely a book that will have people talking and the author did a great job playing on emotion! thanks to @wordsandwine_bookclub for sending me your double copy and @harpercollins for the ARC!

I miss libraries! This shot is from @gladstoneslibrary which I visited last year. I'm hoping to go again when it reopens in 2021. My local library is still shut too. There are a couple in the wider area that have reopened, but only for collecting orders. I miss browsing, reading, being surrounded by books and the hushed atmosphere of study and knowledge. Joining in again with #AnotherWorldOctober today's prompt is a place you miss/a favourite place.

I hope to read more of THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD with #misshavishamsbookclub hosted by @miss .havishams.clock. I might also continue watching The Haunting of Bly Manor.

I made the mistake of listening to Sleepy Hollow on audio while going to sleep and let me tell you I had the most terrifying and insane dreams...but it's Spooktober so it's fine 😳😅 I really loved Heather Ordover narrating the book. Her voice is so soothing and beautiful and yet still sounds really eerie and I think she was the perfect person to narrate this amazing, gothic tale. I also enjoyed the subtle background ambiance, I always prefer when audio books do that because it makes for a much more immersive read. Anyway, if you haven't tried Sleepy Hollow on audio, I highly recommend it! Maybe just don't fall asleep listening to it like I did 🙈 . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookblog #bookblogger #bookbooksbooks #bookcommunity #libraryofinstagram #igbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #darkacademia #darkacademiaaesthetic #darkacademiaclub #fortheloveofreading #simplisticliving #slowliving #mindfulmoments #cozyvibes #cozy #vintagevibes #vintageaesthetic #girlsthatread #audiobooks #bookrecommendation #sleepyhollow

Is there a specific size of book you prefer? While I love smaller paperbacks for their lighter weight and the fact that they easily fit in my bag, I prefer to read the trade paperback size because it's bigger and therefore the writing is normally larger too. I have awful eyesight and even with my glasses on I have a hard time with small print. So while I was out thrifting today I spotted a trade paperback size of The Goldfinch and was so happy because the copy I already owned was very small 😅 I now feel even more motivated to tackle this monstrous beast of a book in November! I am absolutely in love with The Secret History and I have very high hopes that The Goldfinch will be just as amazing . . . . . . . . . . . #thegoldfinch #donnatartt #thesecrethistory #literaryfiction #literature #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookblog #bookblogger #bookbooksbooks #bookcommunity #libraryofinstagram #igbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #darkacademia #darkacademiaaesthetic #darkacademiaclub #fortheloveofreading #simplisticliving #slowliving #mindfulmoments #cozyvibes #cozy #vintagevibes #vintageaesthetic #girlsthatread

It is Banned Books Week. 🚫 Which previously banned title comes to mind first? It is my fifth day in Estonia. 🇪🇪 Just to clarify, before I travelled I spent a morning taking photos in my library. My stories are a mixture of photos of my library and Estonia at the moment. I’m quite busy with other stuff here I don’t have time to take any book photos. 🍂 It’s the first of October, if you would like to join the Excuse My Words Bookclub in October our choice of book is 👀 Watching from the Dark 🐺 which is only 99p on Kindle. 🌒 Tag #excusemywords so we can see and share. #bannedbooksweek #bannedbooks #bookhaul #chilternclassics #chilternpublishing #classicbooks #bookproblems #igreads #currentlyreading #bookclub #currentread #mylibrary
