😎🎩Classic🎩😎 I have been making great strides with reading classic books over the past few months. It is not that I didn't want to before, but I must admit, I was succumbing to the hype of all the new releases.

I read Wuthering Heights back in July with a great group, and now we are reading Jane Eyre. It may be a bit of a Bronte kick, but I don't care. I have always loved Wuthering Heights, and it was great to chat with folks about it!

I am almost halfway through Jane Eyre. I have to confess, it doesn't have quite the spark that WH does for me. I've read it before, and I know lots of people like it. And I do like Jane; she is interesting. And I love some of the passages I'm noticing about how a woman feels, or what a woman should be allowed to do. This must have been quite a revelation back in the day!

I also read The Picture of Dorian Gray last month at the urging of @coffeecoffeecat
and I really liked it! It was a new one for me. It held some surprises! That one went in my Halloween Reads post (the link is in my bio). What classic should I read next? I have Northanger Abbey on my stack here. Any other suggestions? Tell me your favorites!

Most of you may not know this, but I am a geek for #classicliterature and #poetry  Divine Comedy is my favorite and Othello is my favorite Shakespeare works. I've got his entire works, but I love Othello. This is my haul from today, besides the Harvard classic and Virgil I already had. (: And yes, that's TWO Divine Comedy books.

How are you doing on your yearly reading goal (if you set one)?
.
I reached my 2018 reading goal a couple months ago, and I’m proud of myself because it was the first reading goal I had ever set. ☺️
.
However, if you’re not on track to reach your goal, don’t stress about it. There are worse problems in life than being too ambitious with your reading. 🤓

Did you get snow where you live? ❄️ It’s hard to believe that these beautiful golden leaves are now covered in several inches of snow. Even the leaves still clinging to the branches are snow covered. This girl was not ready for snow quite yet but when you live in New England it’s best to live by the motto “anything is possible” when it comes to the weather!

Last weekend I flew through Pride, a modern day Afro-Latino retelling of Pride and Prejudice by @ibizoboi. I am a bit snobbish when it comes to an update of a classic, especially when it is a favorite for me, so I went into this book a little apprehensively. And then I read the first sentence:
.
"It's a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it's a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up."
.
The plot does not follow faithfully to the original throughout, but the heart of the book is fully present. The author took the prejudices, the class struggles, the relational and family issues, and put them in a modern and culturally relevant setting in a way that was thought provoking and beautiful. And I loved the details and wordplay on characters' names (Lizzie Bennett is Zuri Benitez, Mr. Darcy is Darius Darcy, Jane is Janae, Mr. Collins is awkward Colin, and Georgiana Darcy is Georgia). Purists will likely find fault with some of the plot changes, and even I was thrown by the introduction of Bingley's and Darcy's characters as brothers, but ultimately I think that this re-imagining of P&P actually shows the wisdom of Austen and her ability to write about relationships in a way that transcends her era.
.
Have your read Pride? Or do you have another Pride and Prejudice retelling that you've enjoyed? @annebogel posted just this week about three P&P retellings she recently enjoyed, and Pride was one of them!

Last month, a few of us created an Instagram book club called #mimamilee. Each month, we choose a book in Spanish to read together. This month, we took a poll in our Stories to decide which book to read, and a classic, Alicia en el pais de las maravillas (Alice in Wonderland), won. I’ll be reading the paperback version and Poppy will be reading the English board book version by @babylit ! 
If you’d like to join us in reading #aliciaenelpaisdelasmaravillas, here’s what to do:
Follow the #mimamilee founders:
@mrs_hiedra
@sweethomebadalona
@lacasadelcaos
And me, @bilingualbookshelf

Get the book and read it by Dec. 15. Then share your opinion or photos of you reading it using the hashtag #mimamilee. 
In October, we read a thriller, #caminohaciaelpasado by #maryhigginsclark. Even though I didn’t love the book, I really enjoyed having a Spanish reading goal and connecting with the other mamis while we all read together. I encourage all of my bilingual friends to join me! It’s so fun! Message me or comment below if you have any questions.

Who are some of your favorite classic authors?
I only really started reading classics this year! I’ve read four Jane Austen novels, Hard Times by Charles Dickens, and Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. I bought lots of classics too, which I hope to read once I’m on winter break!

Little details make all the difference in a book. When we found this copy of Little Women, we simply thought I had been reunited with an old favorite- but the illustrations made it like new.

QOTD: How often do you read classics? .
.
In the beginning of the year, I made one of my goals to read more classics. So far, I have failed and not read a single one 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️😂I bought Man in the Iron Mask and Lolita while @lovelybookishbelle was visiting me and I’m hoping I can get through at one of them before the year is up! But Callie and I have a very extensive buddy read list so who knows if I will 🤷🏽‍♀️😂

Have you read any of Simone de Beauvoir’s works? I keep catching conversations, discussions, podcasts, and articles talking about waves of feminism and here I am trying to still unravel at a basic level how to define feminism. And then, bam, I learn that there are waves 😳. And I feel like I’m sinking in an over-saturation of info. So, help a beginner out. Where should I start?
.
On a side note, this is also making me acutely aware of the fact that I don’t read nearly enough works from women, and I’d love recommendations from you of some of your favorite women writers! 🖤

It’s been a rough few days (week/month/year?) my reading progress is slow and my time always seems to be consumed by some errand, chore  or task that needs doing. When I do have time, I basically vegetate. I like to absorb and think about what I read, but thinking requires more energy than I’m willing to expend right now. You would think this would stop me from buying books. It doesn’t. They are piling up, unread and collecting dust. I lug them around wherever I go in the hopes of reading even just a page, all this does is give me too much to carry and a sore shoulder.

Admittedly, Hezekiah is a pretty minor character in Their Eyes Were Watching God, but I mean, at least he seems decent?? Besides, I kind of need to practice drawing nonadult designs (which is literally just kittens at different stages of life), so he was a nice opportunity to do so. Here, he's almost an adult, but his legs are a LITTLE shorter than what his adult design should be. Everything else is the same though. I don't think he's developed much in the book, so I'll just say that I headcanon him as generally a kind soul who usually means well for others; however, he can be naive and selfish at times because of his lack of experience in the real world.
--------------------------------
(I hate Joe and all that, but a father-son relationship between him and Hezekiah would be really interesting...) #theireyeswerewatchinggod #zoranealehurston #classiclit #classicliterature #catau #fanart #hezekiah #hezekiahpotts #art #drawing #digitalart #procreate #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #instaart

I hate #mrrochester with a fiery passion. I finished #Janeeyre today after 3 days of reading/listening and yelling out loud the entire time. I absolutely do not understand why Mr. Rochester is considering a romantic literary character. I truly just think he’s a dick who got what he deserved. Also, Jane, girlfriend - YOU DESERVE BETTER!!! I would love to understand why people love this book. If you are a #charlottebrontë fangirl; please do explain what the appeal is because it’s escaping me at the moment. (Ok the writing is amazing, and the story was captivating but I couldn’t get past his arrogance, deceit, and immoral character.) Rant over. Let’s discuss.

I have never been interested in War and Peace until this musical.  It’s amazing how musical theatre can get you immersed and educated in classic literature, history, politics, and society as a whole through song and dance. .

Just a section of my “TBR Shelf of Shame”. I’ve been pretty good about reading most of the books I own but for some reason there’s a few that I just never seem to get to... what’s been stuck at the bottom of everyone else’s lists?

I already got The Great Gatsby in this beautiful edition so it was time to start completing the F. Scott Fitzgerald books. I really liked reading The Great Gatsby so I’m excited to read Flappers and Philosophers too. Who is your favorite “classic” author?

" Encompassing the very best of F. Scott Fitzgerald's short fiction, this collection spans his career, from the early stories of the glittering Jazz Age, through the lost hopes of the thirties, to the last, twilight decade of his life. It brings together his most famous stories, including 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz', a fairy tale of unlimited wealth; the sad and hilarious stories of Hollywood hack Pat Hobby; and 'The Lost Decade', written in Fitzgerald's last years."

Hi friends! Is #Top5Tuesday a thing? If not it should be. It’s so hard to pin down a “favorite” book, but whenever I want to give people a glimpse of the books that have most profoundly moved and inspired me, these are the books I continuously return to 😌❤️

From top to bottom:
The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak 
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Giver by Lois Lowry

Hope everyone has an excellent (perhaps a little snowy?) day!

#Wovember Day 13: Book. We have a huge (bordering on obsessive) collection of wool, knitting, sheep and fibre books. However, the most important book where we live is “Anne of Green Gables” for obvious reasons. Clearly, we needed to find a way to tie these two things together, and thanks to Diana the Wonder Sheep, we succeeded. Someday we need to get her into the musical. 🎶

Thanks to Book Depository and their free delivery, I've managed to collect quite a few of these lovely Penguin English Library editions. If you haven't heard of @bookdepository before, check them out at https://tinyurl.com/ybmolbvr
🌹
I don't really favour contemporary romance novels but give me an old classic with a love story at the center of it any day! I recently finished my reread of Jane Austen's Persuasion and took as much delight in the book as I did the first time round. This is one I'll never tire of reading again and again.
🌹
Anne Elliot was persuaded by her good friend and mentor Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth even though she was deeply in love with him. Seven years later, pushed once more  into the company of the now rich and highly eligible Captain Wentworth, Anne has to face the feelings she still has for him while unsure of how he regards her.
🌹
Though a simpler story than the other Jane Austen books I've read, this was such a comforting read. I love how well Anne's emotions and her uncertainties have been portrayed and what distinct personalities the characters have been given. And of course, this isn't just simply a romance novel. I am highly appreciative of the social commentary prevalent throughout the story, often imbued with wit and satire.
🌹
And I have to say, Captain Wentworth is so far my favourite Austen hero. Who is yours?

Who's your favourite classic literary heroine?  Mine is Jane Eyre.  She even inspired my heroine.  Come and discuss heroines, classic lit, and Jane Eyre in particular.  On my book page @thedraughtsmandamsel

A close up of the glittery Charlotte Brontë pin ~
Quote:
"I am not an angel,' I asserted; 'and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate"
Jane Eyre / Charlotte Bronte
-----------------------------------------------------
How are you doing, fare friends?
Do you like Jane Eyre?
Well, I most definitely do. So much so, that I got my inspiration for lady Annabelle from her 💜.
What do I like about her?
She doesn't change for a man, but for herself. And she doesn't want to be put on a pedestal. She wants to be precived as herself; faults and values altogether.
I really hope my Annabelle is an inspiration to you as well.

Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate" Jane Eyre / Charlotte Bronte ----------------------------------------------------- How are you doing, fare friends? Do you like Jane Eyre? Well, I most definitely do. So much so, that I got my inspiration for lady Annabelle from her 💜. What do I like about her? She doesn't change for a man, but for herself. And she doesn't want to be put on a pedestal. She wants to be precived as herself; faults and values altogether. I really hope my Annabelle is an inspiration to you as well. #qotd : who is your favorite classic protagonist? _________________________ #bookstagram  #classiclit  #janeeyre  #englishlitlover  #myinspiraton  #strongfemales  #bookishquote 
The two things I buy the most frequently:  books and mugs.
.
Someone recently made some unkind comments about Bookstagram, and the abundance of mugs was one of the critiques. Well, to each their own, but imho, the more the merrier.
.
What do you love buying, other than books?

“‘Where did you go to, if I may ask?' said Thorin to Gandalf as they rode along.
To look ahead,' said he.
And what brought you back in the nick of time?'”
Looking behind,' said he.
—J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Happy Sunday!

What’s a classic you recently read? —-I’d never read The Hobbit until this year! And even though I thought it was slow at first, I ended up loving it! .

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

Happy birthday, dear Dostoevsky! Thank goodness you were born. And thank goodness you survived an execution. And pursued that which was your calling. 🎂

С днём рождения дорогому и великому. Достоевский — спасибо за напоминание что есть в этом мире человеческий дух. Любовь. Теплота.

Cozying up this #november with some classic #sherlockholmes ☺️ #sirarthurconandoyle created some of the most famous literary characters of all time, and #sherlock and #johnwatson have taken the world by storm since he first started publishing in the 1880s. When Conan Doyle killed off Holmes, the “fanatics” (where the term “fan” was born!) demanded Sherlock be brought back and he gave in. While these gems were originally published bit by bit in a newspaper, it’s easy to find a copy of all the stories in one book. Whether you read the longer mysteries or just the short stories, #holmes and #watson will always bring a cozy, nostalgic and exciting sense of adventure to your reading. These characters and stories have stood the test of time for a reason, and I highly recommend adding some Sherlock Holmes to your winter reading list!

✨2018 read # 10✨
I have to thank @bookfairiesworldwide // @bookfairies_newyork for this one! I found this contemporary gothic horror leaning against the entrance to a subway station in Brooklyn and I had to give it a go. “Abigale Hall” is definitely inspired by some of my favorites like “Jane Eyre” and “Rebecca,” so it was very interesting to read. If you’re looking for something on the creepy side, give it a go! Stay tuned to my Instagram story to see where I drop it for the next reader to pick up!

Who else had been visited by a Book Fairy? What did you find?

🌊Rime of the Ancient Mariner 🌊
S1: 'God save thee, ancient Mariner! 
From the fiends, that plague thee thus!— Why look'st thou so?'—With my cross-bow 
I shot the ALBATROSS. 💧
S2:Down dropt the breeze, the sails dropt down, 'Twas sad as sad could be; 
And we did speak only to break 
The silence of the sea! 💧
S3:Four times fifty living men, (And I heard nor sigh nor groan) 
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, 
They dropped down one by one. 💧
S4:O happy living things! no tongue 
Their beauty might declare: 
A spring of love gushed from my heart, 
And I blessed them unaware: 
Sure my kind saint took pity on me, 
And I blessed them unaware. 💧
S5: My lips were wet, my throat was cold, 
My garments all were dank; 
Sure I had drunken in my dreams, 
And still my body drank. 💧
S6:The self-same moment I could pray; 
And from my neck so free 
The Albatross fell off, and sank 
Like lead into the sea.💧
S7:The helmsman steered, the ship moved on; 
Yet never a breeze up-blew; 💧
S8:This seraph-band, each waved his hand, 
No voice did they impart— 
No voice; but oh! the silence sank 
Like music on my heart. 💧
S9:Upon the whirl, where sank the ship, 
The boat spun round and round; 💧
S10:I pass, like night, from land to land; 
I have strange power of speech; 
That moment that his face I see, 
I know the man that must hear me: 
To him my tale I teach. 💧
💧

Some books perfectly capture a time and place. In A World of Love it is summer, it is Ireland. A World of Love has a sweet sadness about it and events shaped by World War I play at the heart of the book. It has all the hallmarks of a Bowen novel—an Irish house with character, plenty of class issues, family dramas deeply felt, fields gilded by the sun, mysterious love letters, the intoxicating blindness of love. It’s a novel about imagining. A strange, dreamlike novel, a ghost story.

I love how some trees hang onto their leaves for as long as they can. Some trees in my garden are almost bare, others are aflame with reds and oranges, while this one is still clinging onto its last few green leaves 🍃
.
.
I was recently sent Fiona Sampson's 'In search of Mary Shelley' by @profile.books and it is proving to be an excellent read so far. After reading, and loving 'Frankenstein' last year, I was eager to find out more about the woman behind the book. I recommend 'Frankenstein' to people all the time and I think I'll be doing the same with this book 💛

🌺Lest we forget🌺

Armistice Day - marking 100 years since the end of the the First World War, in which up to 19 million people are thought to have died.
🌺
Featured here are a few books set during WW1.  I have yet to read Sixteen Trees of the Somme (a lovely prize from @quercusbooks ) and The Return of the Soldier.  Have you read any of these novels?  Which books set during conflict or wartime would you recommend?
🌺
I have included some pictures from the beautiful “Weeping Window” sculpture of poppies we saw last year at the Ulster Museum.🌺

If I'm gonna be honest, I'm not sure how much of this is symbolic and how much of this is just aesthetic, but I guess it's not too bad?? Anyways, I decided to kind of revamp my cat design for Ralph because I thought the old version was too generic?? I probably should've changed more of it, but the nostalgia factor caused most of the updates to be subtle. Yikes. Like I said though, at least the piece doesn't suck.
