“I have my grandmother’s skin. Problem skin.” - Julia Armfield, salt slow . . . Just started this book last night and I am already blown away by the first story. Had to stop and just stare into space for awhile after that. ✨ I’m joining a little late in the month, but always happy to hop aboard the Belletrist bus! 🚌 Extra grateful for library books ☺️ . . . . #bookstgram #fiction #bibliophile #belletristbabe

What’s your favorite Christmas/holiday tradition? • Snow is in the forecast for today thru Sunday so I thought it would be fun to do a blue and white stack! I’m just hoping the snow stays mostly in the mountains 😬😂 • I have a couple favorite Christmas traditions. My ancestors on my maternal grandfather’s side are from Denmark. We have a danish Christmas cookie recipe we have been making for generations. It’s labor intensive but so much fun! • Another tradition is Christmas Eve dinner. My immediate family gathers for the best dinner of the year: prime rib and crab legs. My dad has his own secret prime rib rub that beats everything! Afterwards, we open presents from each other. As we have grown up and moved out, this dinner means more and more each year. • I love Christmas traditions ❤️ • • • • #blueandwhitebookstack #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #bookobsessed #bookcommunity #bookphoto #bookaholic #igreads #readersofinstagram #ilovetoread #reader #readreadread #bookstagrammer #fiction #nonfiction #booknerd

Chrollo is a badass, I love him and his simple yet cool design. I think I like him with the headband and suit better than his purple coat lol, not that it's a bad outfit. (Spoiler, sort of, idk?) Anyways, Chrollo killed a bunch of assassin's with pens which is why I made this. Yep. And he's in a suit I just rewatched the episode and wanted an excuse to make a post about Chrollo. Leave me alone lmao. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ Tags So Senpai Sees: #marvel #DC #Dragonballz #Naruto #Anime #comics #manga #nerd #chrollolucilfer #narutoshippuden #marvelcomics #DCcomics #starwars #mcu #Dceu #detectivecomics #Justiceleague #theavengers #battle #fight #fiction #debate #chrollo #brawl #competition #war #dcVSmarvel #art #hxh #hunterxhunter

What were your favorite books of the decade? PLEASE SHARE IN COMMENTS!! THANKS :) My favorite fiction book of the decade was "All the Light We Cannot See" Anthony Doer. My favorite non fiction book was "Endure" by Alex Hutchinson. And the best fantasy series is "The King Killer Prophecies" by Patrick Rothfuss... there's no debate in this subject unless you have read a lot of fantasy... and if so then you know. #bookstagram #literature #fiction #nonfiction #fantasy

I underestimated how much this semester would sit my little tushy down in front of a computer. I haven’t been hiking since October and my bones know it. They’ve been creaking and begging me to go outside. On Sunday they’ll get what they want. But I don’t regret it because not only have I focused on work, moving, and a huge master’s project… I’ve also been working with two literary magazines and I’ve learned so much! 📚 For years I would sit down in front of a computer for hours and read Brevity. It’s been around for more than 20 years and never in my life did I think that I would be affiliated with it, and now I’m working with the team and sometimes I’m left wondering… did this really happen? Is this really happening? How did I get here?! I get to read the submissions, discuss pieces with the team and analyze what works and doesn’t… I’ve grown so much as a writer and I’m so excited to continue working with them until my last semester. My first essay for 2020 will drop on the Brevity Blog in January, but in the meantime go check out the latest issue on brevitymag.com and the daily essays/interviews on the blog: brevityblog.com 📚 Along with @kristendalli, I am one of the co-Editors in Chief of Causeway Lit. We both started out as readers in our first semester and became EIC now in our third semester. I manage the social media and posts on the site. I keep on learning about Submittable and WordPress every day and there are also many screams of frustration during this learning process. Again, I love reading the submissions, working with a team and managing a lit mag. It wasn’t until the last issue went live that it clicked that all three of the genre winners were women (DOWN WITH THE PATRIARCHY!). So I will be EIC for two more issues of @causewaylit, and then we’ll pass on the baton to a group of other @fairfieldumfa students. 📚 I can’t wait to read your stories. Submit to both Brevity and Causeway if you get the chance! And please share with your writer friends, especially if they are underrepresented writers or just starting out. 🤓

A day which we can't afford to miss! Find the review of the highly acclaimed @The Great Indian Novel penned down by one of the most charismatic intellectual of the nation, who could be none other than the Shashi Tharoor. This master class fiction has been able to attain the same cult status as it has been 3 decades back when it got first published by Viking Press. And who could have reviewed it better than our own Sneha Prakash. #classic #epic #fiction #satire #novel

OMIGOSH! 😮 This was a great story right up until the ending slapped me in the face and left me sad and depressed. For me, the story is 50% of a great book and the ending is the other 50%. This ending failed me when I wanted SO MUCH to love this book.

Dneska jsem četla článek v @zenaazivot (uznávám, že mám trochu zpoždění, protože se jedná o listopadový číslo) o instagramu. Jak působí negativně na psychiku sledování krásnějších, uspesnejsich, a nepochybně lepších lidi, co se denně stravuji v 5* restauracích a davaj si speciál latte ve Starbucksu a jejich dokonalejch životu. Prej z toho vznikaj různý deprese a pocity méněcennosti, zvlášť u někoho, kdo opravdu instagramem žije a postuje denně několik fotek, kterých před zveřejněním udělá kdoví kolik, než vybere onu vítěznou prezentující jeho dokonalej život. Tenhle článek by si měl přečíst každej #insta kdoví co, protože všichni jsme lidi, všichni máme rádi to hezký, voňavý, chutný a "lepší", co jinak běžně nemáme. Všichni umíme bejt krásní, milí, obletovani a nobl, stejně tak jako nechutný prasata. Máme blbou náladu, jsme vulgární a chováme se jak dementi. To je opravdovost. #instagram #fact or #fiction ?

Why am I posting a picture of a book with onions? (Because I’m weird). Let’s just say this book is wonderful and onions play a big part in it.... and the book deserved a kitchen setting (though I actually read this book sprawled out on the sofa while my family were around and we were feasting on wine and cheese). This book is romantic. Sexual. Magical. Spiritual. This book will make you hungry... and it even includes recipes. I’ve now gone and hunted down other books by this author because I loved it so much. #mexicanbook #mexicanauthor #likewaterforchocolate #mexicanliterature

[Lu] Les trois derniers tomes de la Passe-Miroir par Christelle Dabos. Après avoir gobé le premier tome, La fiancée de l’hiver, en deux jours il y a un an ou deux, j’ai attendu la sortie du tout dernier, La tempête des échos, pour lire tout le reste. • Que j’ai gobé en 5 jours. C’est imaginatif, sensible, les personnages sont originaux et attachants... Je me suis évadée dans une histoire si prenante que ça m’a rappelé pourquoi j’aime autant les littératures de l’imaginaire ✨ • • • #lecturedumoment #sfff #fiction #imaginaire #coupdecoeur #inspiration

Here's a few of my favourite character quotes from Fate of The Hunted to celebrate reaching 5000 followers! The quotes are not all completely accurate but they're close enough. There are plenty more quotes that make me smile but these were the ones I could share without spoiling anything. I'm not entirely sure whether they're as funny out of context, especially since it's some of the actions that follow which makes them funny.

Thank you to everyone who was part of a curated conversation at the National History Museum on behalf of The Citizens Archive of Pakistan. "Para-sites and Parafictions" is a curated conversation with Sabeen Jamil (Mantiq of the Mantis, ), Mirela Radulescu (Saaf Sutra Foundation), Madyha Leghari, Afshan Shafi, Hadi Rehman, Sarah Haider, Khadija Arham, Zainab Zulfiqar, Durrie Baloch, Sadia Khatri, Fiza Khatri, Anam Abbas, Najia Sabahat, Komal Ghazali, Zahra Malkani and Shahana Rajani, Noor us Sabah in the Shared_Studios portal. . In the current phase of the Story Share Initiative, CAP has sourced an immersive audio-visual installation from Shared_Studios to provide citizens with a platform to share experiences and build connections within Pakistan and also with the rest of the world. The physical installation of the portal re-enacts a beautiful metaphor to open or spread out from a folded position – an unraveling of thoughts as we aspire to reach an end point - encourage a vacuum of sorts – since a vacuum is an all containing whole, a beginning that begets, greater than any part. . This session is aimed to function like a mind-map; encouraging a constellation of ideas from a pool of interdisciplinary creatives who can expand, expound, create and re-create existing creative practices from various vantage points; exploring boundaries of intimacy and vulnerability, emotions and desires that are pre-linguistic and challenge the current infrastructures we work within, generating and dissolving energy fields that connect both physical and emotional relationships. These are some of the starting points for thinking about infrastructures as ephemeral and unstructured, embodying multiple dimensions. . #mantiqofthemantis #citizensarchivepakistan #mantes #infrastructure #ecosystem #sustainable #trust #friendship #network #faith #nationalhistorymuseum #performance #gesture #conversation #fiction #parasites #expand #connect #love #writers #artists #literature #history #herstory #karachi #lahore #NAPA #saafsutra #framework

Have you ever read a book that you thought you enjoyed, but when reflecting back you can't really remember what it was you liked about it? 🤔 That's exactly how I feel with Oligarchy by Scarlett Thomas. 📖 . The book focuses on Natasha, a Russian schoolgirl who finds herself enrolled in a boarding school where social cliques and eating disorders are commonplace. 🏫 I thought the idea for the plot was great, and it had such potential to really make a strong and influential statement about these themes. 👏🏻📚 . I remember being really excited to read it! I got started and found that it wasn't what I expected. Then the more I read, the more I felt the author had wasted the potential they had with the idea. Looking back a week later, I can't really remember what I liked about it - only the negatives. 🙅🏻‍♀️ I hate when that happens! 🙈 .

Today's OPL Top Shelf feature is "The Myth of Perpetual Summer" by Susan Crandall! 📙 Lauren M., specialist at Willa Cather Branch, took time to describe the work of historical fiction: "A young woman comes to term with her tumultuous past and the consequences of generations of long-buried family secrets in this beautifully written historical fiction. Set primarily against the background of the American South in the 1960s, this story is part coming-of-age and part homecoming. The plot is engaging, touching on themes of reputation, family responsibility, forgiveness and misunderstood mental illness. Strong female lead. Vividly described Southern setting. Well-crafted story. What's not to love?" Sound like something you could get through on these cold winter days?

Releae Day Blitz!!! The Marshal’s Teacher (Yours to Protect, Book 3) By Este Holland Author Book synopsis: Protecting him is no hardship. Chaze Pullman has a sixth sense for trouble. He never thought it would come in handy when a man threatens him over a hot US Marshal. Kean York may be recovering from a gunshot wound, but he’ll go to any length to protect a certain stubborn man. After all, Chaze’s life was put in danger because of York… Or was it? When emotions run high, information can be overlooked, and Chaze’s instincts are telling him something else is going on. Something that may not involve him at all. This is the third book in the Yours to Protect series. It’s novella length with a cliffhanger for the overall plot of the series, but it is HEA for the main characters. Check out the link in my bio for more on this hot series. #literature #esteholland #releaseday #fiction #romance #blogtourhost #blogger #booklovers #bookshelf #bookaddict #blogtour #reading #books Tour provider A Novel Take PR

||Review|| Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . For a YA book, I was pleasantly surprised with how dark and ruthless this book was. There are mean girl vibes mixed with Kill Bill vibes all wrapped up in a YA retelling of Macbeth. It is written incredibly well and has, at times, a poetic feel to it. Capin’s writing is full of imagery and is captivating. . The main character, Jade, is out for revenge on the group of boys who drugged and sexually assaulted her (there is a trigger warning page in the beginning of the book). The teenagers in the book are the stereotypical rich prep school kids who can get away with murder. Specifically, the group of boys who are athletes with no regard for anyone but themselves, let alone for girls and their consent. It gives the book a contemporary relevance that is chilling. . I could perfectly picture this as a movie. It feels like a cult indie teen film with strong females you root for despite their morally gray actions. The short / sometimes abrupt phrases and flashbacks from Jade’s perspective push the point across that she is out for revenge. Jade immediately goes from being sexually assaulted to doing everything in her power to take back control. She is a strong character. . “I can take every single thing they tried to ruin and make it mine again. Make it a weapon that cuts them down and bleeds them dry.” This book is bloody and unapologetic. It dives right into a gritty story of vengeance and doesn’t back down. I can’t say enough about how beautifully written it is. The characters are dark and ruthless and the story pulls you in. . Thank you to @macmillanusa and @wednesdaybooks for the advanced readers copy! I really enjoyed this book! . #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookstoread #decemberbooksread #foulisfair #yabook #instablog #arc #instabooks #bookworm #booknerd #youngadultbook #fiction #goodreads #booksharks #bookworm #booknerd #youngadultbook #fiction #macbethretelling #goodreads #booksharks

"There will come a time , " I said, "When all of us are dead . All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra , let alone you . Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this "- I gestured encompassingly - " will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away , but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after . And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it . God knows that's what everyone else does.

My family recented visited me in Paris and the owner of their airbnb let us keep some of the (many many) books in the apartment!! Always excited about free books!! My French is at the level where if I decided to read these it would be a (very) slow process, but I was happy to keep them nonetheless. (Murakami is one of my favourite authors so I was happy to snag this version if 'What I Talk About When I Talk About Running,' and as far as the Beauvoir, I sort of just took it because I figured at least one of the books I take should actually be French and not a translation lol also because I liked the cover. No shame in that though!!)
