I haven't posted a shelfie in a hot minute so I thought now would be the perfect time since I'll be moving soon. Books, journals, (usually multiple) coffee cups, Polaroids, pens, old letters and stationary, change for laundry, and other miscellaneous items always cover this area. It's a little messy but it fits me. •

Happy birthday, Papa Hemingway! I can think of no better day to return from my blogging hiatus than on my main literary squeeze’s birthday. Link in bio for today’s post about my love of A Moveable Feast and all things Ernest Hemingway.

QOTD: Do you have a favourite era/time period? Whether it be just a favourite time period to read as a setting or something you're just aesthetically in love with or even a period your just interested in learning about 📚
•••••
AOTD: I always loving reading about both the roaring 20s and the Victorian era. There's just something that I love about them. I think it would be SO cool to be an actor or something in a period piece for either of these times. I would love an excuse to wear a fancy ass dress(no corset though😥)
••
Finally using some of the new props that I got and I really love the way this picture turned out. I love these editions of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books and stories. I only have The Love Boat and Other Stories in this edition but I'm dying to get my hands on the other books available!😍

The view has changed but the book is the same. Starting on my 2nd hour of reading for the #24in48 readathon and finished 70 pages so far. I'm such a slow reader.

• AGATHA CHRISTIE •
Here is a part of my vintage Agatha Christie published in French by @editionsjclatteslemasque ! I love these books so much that I don’t even want to have any new versions or even English ones (okay... this might be a white lie 😁🤣) • Do you enjoy Christie’s novels?
🍃🍃🍃
J’ai commencé à dévorer les livres quand j’étais jeune grâce à Agatha Christie. Mon père me ramenait ses livres quand il allait à des brocantes. 😁 J’adore ces éditions vintage, et je n’ai pas envie d’en avoir d’autres ... celles-ci sont trop mignonnes! • Vous lisez Agatha Christie?

According to Freire, the oppressed internalise the image of their oppressor and strive to become oppressors themselves. The oppressor is captive to his condition just like the oppressed. The solution to their struggle is through a praxis of reflection and action. It's through this process that both parties can reconcile their problems and liberate themselves.•
•
•
•
•
"...The praxis is the new raison d’être of the oppressed; and the revolution, which inaugurates the historical moment of this raison d’être, is not viable apart from their concomitant conscious involvement. Otherwise, action is pure activism"

“I want to do something splendid...Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead... I think I shall write books.”
- Louisa May Alcott
.
.
.
I was able to visit Orchard House and Louisa May Alcott’s grave while I was in Concord, Massachusetts. There are several famous authors buried in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, but Alcott’s grave had the most items left as tributes to her including pens, pencils, and pennies. Someone even left a ‘Votes for Women’ button because Louisa was the first woman registered to vote in Concord. Her and her mother (whom she really called Marmee) were suffragettes and fought for women’s rights. I’ve always loved Little Women, but I now have so much respect for the author after learning more about her life.

Do you ever visit literary sites when you travel?

Whenever you feel inclined to say that romance was more real back in The Old Days™, come back to read this paragraph from a 30’s novel #tropicofcancer #henrymiller #bookstagram #classiclit

I recently discovered PichiAvo [Spanish-based artist duo] and their art is so vivid and striking. I may be a bit obsessed.

Thanks #bookstagram friends 😊 the book that was most successful in my Insta story poll was overwhelmingly in favour of #Circe — I’ve started it and am already loving the plot line & the prose. Madeline Miller is a genius!

I started reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov today and it looks like my reading slump is finally over! I’m really loving it, as I hoped I would💞 This is a reread, but I haven’t read it since 1998 so I don’t remember much of it😂 I was pretty much obsessed with this book back then, and read it multiple times. If you’ve read it I’d love to hear what you think of it! And if you haven’t read it, I really recommend that you do, even if the theme of the book is somewhat disturbing😅 •

Lolita is this months read in our #classiclitlove book club! If you want to buddy read it with us just let me know😊

I'm a day early but I'm in work all weekend so I know I'll forget - Happy Birthday Ernest Hemingway. A Farewell To Arms was my favourite book of 2017 and influenced me in so many ways. I can't wait to start Fiesta:The Sun Also Rises. I bought a gorgeous copy from Foyle's last time I was in London 💙📘🎁 #ernesthemingway #afarewelltoarms #classiclit #classicliterature #vintageclassics #randomhouse #bookworm #firstworldwar #ww1 #bookstagram

Who else is obsessed with @babylitbooks? We’ve loved these board books that introduce kids to classic literature through creative ways for years, and recently added Anne of Green Gables to our collection. 
Each page has a location from the novel and a quote, and the map at the beginning of the book is perfect for finding each location on Prince Edward Island. This is one of my favorites from the BabyLit collection!

I’m feeling nostalgic today for the #12daysofannestagram posts, so be sure to check out the hashtag if you are in need of some Anne today too.

Today is the last day of camp. I will miss the kiddos, but I will not miss the commute.

This photo was taken at the campus. Look at that arch! When I first arrived (driving down a road littered with beautiful private schools and ending up at a campus of Gothic architecture), I told myself I had to take bookstagram photos. But I've taken very few simply because it has been too hot haha. (Although I’m sure it’s hotter in South Africa.)

I had a great time at the beach today and started this testimony, written by @francine_kreiss ! It’s pretty amazing and kinda scary at the same time. I love it so far. I do hope it’ll be translated into English, because I think it’s a great, great book! • Do you often read testimony / True Stories ? I love them! 🙃☺️

Book review:
Ah Dickens, there is just something I love about his writing! 
Little Dorrit shows what debtors prison was like in England back in the 1800s and the negative stigma surrounding the inmates. Little Dorrit is born in the prison, and while she is not an inmate, she continues to choose the prison because the people she loves are in there.
There is a fun cast of characters in this book, which is pretty typical for Dickens novels. His characters really make me laugh, and the villains drive me crazy, which they are meant to! 
If you’re looking for a fun Dickens book, then I would definitely check it out! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There is a fun cast of characters in this book, which is pretty typical for Dickens novels. His characters really make me laugh, and the villains drive me crazy, which they are meant to! If you’re looking for a fun Dickens book, then I would definitely check it out! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #hookedtobooksreviews  - - - - - - #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #bookstagramfeature  #bookish  #bookishfeatures  #bibliophile  #bookaddict  #booknerd  #booknerdigans  #bookworm  #igbooks  #igreads  #bookphotography  #booksofinstagram  #readersofinstagram  #booklover  #booklove  #bookreview  #bookreviews  #bookrecommendation  #bookrecommendations  #classic  #classics  #classicliterature  #classiclit  #charlesdickens  #littledorrit 
Thomas Putnam is stinky, but his saltiness is a mood, to say the least. Also, me making designs for super minor characters? It's... Uhhhh... More likely than you think...

Reading some Hardy surrounded by some luxurious Ucluelet greenery. There's nothing better than reading with distant waves as background noise 😍 Hardy's landscapes may be a touch more gloomy but his descriptions of windy moors and cliffs feel apt! .

The point was not to die, since death came anyway, but to survive, which would be a miracle.”
.
Currently listening to Allende's Island Beneath the Sea on audiobook. I loved both House of Spirits (my first Allende) and Eva Luna (my second), but was disappointed by The Japanese Lover (my third).
.
I rarely read more than one or two books by the same author unless it's a series. But encouraged by @ab_read's love for Atwood, I decided to explore Allende further. I'm more than a third of the way through Island Beneath the Sea, and I am happy to report that I'm enjoying it.
.
Q: Which author whose work have you read a lot of?
A: Only Jane Austen and CS Lewis.

“When you re-read a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before. You see more in you than there was before.” - Clifton Fadiman
🔸🔸🔸
Do you enjoy reading classics? It’s ok if you don’t 😂. I’ve definitely found a few that I loved but I haven’t read very many 🙈. I recently got these because I saw them on @bookoutlet and couldn’t resist! And the cover designs are beautiful. Which one of these should I read first? I’ve read only East of Eden so far.
🔸🔸🔸
How is your day going? I’ve just been writing my research paper all day. ———————————————————————-

Happy Friday Jr. y'all! One more day until the weekend!👏🏻 I'm currently reading My Plain Jane and enjoying the comedic outtake on this English classic, and am slowly remembering Jane Eyre more and more as the book goes on.😅
.
QOTD: What's a classic that you haven't gotten around to reading yet?
A: War and Peace😳🙈
.
.
Room sprays sometimes just make my day 😍(hey that almost rhymes right?😉) This room spray, Reading in the Garden, from @highlandbluffstudio makes my entire home smell like a whimsical garden.

To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
•
You guys, I don't even know how to review this book. The synopsis of this book would just be "People go to summer house and have dinner. Time passes and some of them die. They go to lighthouse." But that doesn't get into what I love about Virginia Woolf: the way she captures the deep consciousnesses we carry around with us, the way our thoughts and anxieties and daydreams fill up a room.
•
And seriously, nobody can write a sentence like Virginia Woolf - and those beautiful sentences don't always make sense! You have to just let the words wash over you and forget about understanding every little thing. She uses these precise images, a whirl of ideas, that creates an effect more than a cohesive story.
•
"All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a wedge-shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others... and this self having shed its attachments was free for the strangest adventures.”
•
Okay, talk to me about Virginia Woolf. My favorite of hers is still Mrs. Dalloway - what's your experience been?

Jane Austen, in English, & in French. Because you can never have too many Austen in your house. I actually love reading Austen both in English & French - because i can grasp, with the French version, some little details I might not have noticed in English. Anyways, Jane Austen is always a good choice. Don’t you think? • The candles are from a French shop: @histoire.de.bougies - Aren’t they cute?
🍃🍃🍃
Jane Austen... en anglais et en français. J’aime beaucoup relire les Austen en français, parce que ça me permet de relever des petits détails que je n’avais pas vu lors de ma lecture en anglais. Ça vous arrive aussi? • Les bougies viennent de la boutique @histoire.de.bougies ! Et les sublimes versions françaises de chez Archi Poche!

Why they translate people's name? 😎
.

This book is about nostalgia that yearning for the past, and an anticipation: the lover's arrival.
.

A bit funny coz there are 2 man that waiting for their love. One is a husband waiting for his "4 years apart" wife (because of war), and the second one is a man who waiting for his neigbour's "4 years apart" wife (after shocked moment, found that his friend's "4 years apart" wife was his early love). 😂
.

While waiting, the second guy decided to broke up from a woman he no longer loves and ignored a 'girl next door' who adores him, and keep wonder why she married a man like that and unfortunately, the destiny brought to become his neigbour in this fugitive place. Hmm.. he even planned to ask her, to run away with him. 😅
.

The setting is in a small rent house in Berlin, Germany. Filled with Russian expats. They are Russian.
.

The ending is good, he decided to do what a man ought to do, but I don't like it. I expect more... 😂😂😂
.

Anyway, it's only 3,5⭐from me. I wish Nabokov wrote the ending differently (as in my mind for example) it would be 5⭐story 😆!!

This book is about nostalgia that yearning for the past, and an anticipation: the lover's arrival. . A bit funny coz there are 2 man that waiting for their love. One is a husband waiting for his "4 years apart" wife (because of war), and the second one is a man who waiting for his neigbour's "4 years apart" wife (after shocked moment, found that his friend's "4 years apart" wife was his early love). 😂 . While waiting, the second guy decided to broke up from a woman he no longer loves and ignored a 'girl next door' who adores him, and keep wonder why she married a man like that and unfortunately, the destiny brought to become his neigbour in this fugitive place. Hmm.. he even planned to ask her, to run away with him. 😅 . The setting is in a small rent house in Berlin, Germany. Filled with Russian expats. They are Russian. . The ending is good, he decided to do what a man ought to do, but I don't like it. I expect more... 😂😂😂 . Anyway, it's only 3,5⭐from me. I wish Nabokov wrote the ending differently (as in my mind for example) it would be 5⭐story 😆!! . #oneweekonebook  @gerakan_1week1book #semangatbacabuku  #bookstagram  #bookgram  #bookgeek  #bookaholic  #Bookaddict  #booknerd  #bookeaters  #bibliophile  #bookfacelicious  #bookworm  #bookday  #bookdragon  #goodreads  #bookish  #buku  #read  #reading  #bookday  #penerbitserambi  #classic  #classiclit  #maria  #mary  #masenka  #vladimirnabokov  #sanwafeature  #booktographyid 
“I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way.”
- Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility .

In honor of Jane Austen who died 201 years ago today at the age of 41. It’s amazing to think that so many years later her characters are still some of the most beloved in English literature.

Scout Finch is a good bird- I mean, Finch. Admittedly, I don't feel as strongly for her as I do with Boo, Atticus, and Calpurnia, but I mean... She is the protagonist... :"^))
-----------------------------
(Scout's design is supposed to be based off a dove/pigeon, but I low-key heavily based it off Atticus's design because genetics. Her fur is scruffier than her dad's though, so at least it's not the same??) #tokillamockingbird #harperlee #catau #classiclit #classicliterature #scout #scoutfinch #fanart #art #drawing #digitalart #procreate #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #instaartist

HELLO HELLO! I’m just popping in to say Jane Austen is the Awesomest (pun YES) and share a million of her quotes because today marks 201 years since she died. (Morbid. So morbid.)
-
From Emma → “I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other.”
From Mansfield Park → “She was of course only too good for him; but as nobody minds having what is too good for them, he was very steadily earnest in pursuit of the blessing.”
From a random letter to Cassandra → “I am sorry to tell you that I am getting very extravagant and spending all money; and what is worse for you, I have been spending all yours too.”
From Persuasion → Captain Harvile: “I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which did not have something to say on women’s fickleness.” Anne Elliot: “But they were all written by men.” MIC. DROP.
-
If only paper was still that sassy.
-
💭 You pick the question: (or, if you’re ambitious, answer them ALL !!!)
1) What introduced you to Jane Austen?
2) Who’s your favorite Austen heroine?
3) Who’s your favorite Austen hero?
4) What’s your favorite non-canon ship?

Calpurnia is a low-key platonic wife for me because... I love her... Her design was meant to be based off a magpie, but I fucked up and based it off a loon instead. (I also added a heart marking on her chest to be cute but shhhhhh-) Nice. Also, yes, everyone in the Finch family (including Calpurnia and possibly Dill because I can) will get bird-based designs because... Finch... *thrown off cliff for the shitty joke*

I decided to spice up my favorite classic to an unexpected one! I know I’m usually pro Persuasion and East of Eden but this story stuck with me as a reader and writer. #favoriteclassic #classics #bestbooks #frankenstein #maryshelley #classiclit #bookstagram #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #reader #booknerd #booklife #bookblogger #booklove #amillionpages #amillionadventures
To be honest, the first time I read #wutheringheights by #emilybrontë I was not a fan. I thought it was tedious, depressing and drawn out. BUT. When I read the last few paragraphs, my entire perspective shifted. I realized I had been looking at the book the wrong way the entire time, and it was one heck of a revelation. Wuthering Heights still has one of my favorite book endings of all time - the last few paragraphs are irrefutably poetry. This novel is all about the human condition, how souls twist and wither in isolation, the meaning of freedom, love and more. It’s a classic for a reason, and a book that will stick with you, but you definitely need the right mindset and perspective.

What are your opinions on classics? 📚
—
Personally I have yet to read a “classic” book. And I honestly don’t even know where to start.. I feel like because I tend to appreciate stories for simple fun, something that drones on in a beautiful writing style may be entirely lost on me..

• HI FROM THE USA •
QOTD: Do you collect these gorgeous @penguinclassics ?
🌵I love them so, so much! I mean aren’t they gorgeous? I’m missing a few, but hopefully I’ll find them soon! Also, I arrived in the US yesterday... and boy, I feel like I’m in Wisteria Lane. It’s so amazing! I mean, guys, there is a golf course right in front of the yard. How crazy is that? (For you fellow Americans, it mustn’t feel this way, but to me, it’s like the American Dream right here.)
🍃🍃🍃
QDJ: est-ce que vous collectionnez cette magnifique collection des éditions @penguinclassics ?
🌵Je les adore, c’est une de mes collections favorites! J’espère pouvoir la compléter un jour. Sinon, je vous écris depuis les USA (oh, la, la!)! Je n’y avait pas remis les pieds depuis 5 ans, et je suis tellement contente d’y être à nouveau. Un pays que j’aime et que je déteste à la fois par certains côtés. Mais quelle joie d’y revenir! Je suis en Caroline du Nord et c’est magique... on se croirait dans Wisteria Lane... vraiment! Il y a un terrain de golf juste derrière la maison (QUOIIII?!). Je vais à la plage cette après-midi. J’ai tellement hâte de voir l’océan!

"Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began.

Consider all this; and then turn to this green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself? For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou canst never return!" - Moby Dick, chapter 58, "Brit" #Maritime #Literature #ClassicLit #MobyDick

What’s the book that’s been in your library the longest? I’ve had my copy of #littlewomen since I was nine— got it as a Christmas gift from my great grandmother! It wasn’t until years later, though, that I really fell in love with the March family and, of course, Professor Bhaer, my forever book boyfriend. Fun fact: there’s a little-known musical adaptation of this book, and my husband used the song in which Bhaer proposes to Jo to propose to me. 💑 #bookstagram #classiclit #louisamayalcott

What better book to read in the Italian sunshine than this beautiful, little, re-discovered classic? This the latest instalment in the Penguin European Writers' series and is penned by Italian author, Cesare Pavese.

I spent a glorious post-gondola hour sipping coffee whilst fully immersed in this. The brooding summer heat permeated from the page and, combined with the evocative Italian landscape depicted, perfectly matched my surroundings. I will always associate this book with fulfilling my no.1 bucket list dream of visiting beautiful Venice but found this an enjoyable read of its own accord, rich in brooding characters, lyrical prose, and emotional complexity.

Reading always make me want to travel. This time it's about my home country, which I've never been to, and I cannot wait to visit it. Technically i'm from the South since the country was devided in 2011. I grew up in Kakuma Refugee Camp because of all the conflicts in Sudan. 🏠 "This large house is built neither of stone nor yet of red brick but of the very mud in which the wheat is grown, and it stands right at the edge of the field so that it is an extension of it ... It is a chaotic house, built without method, and has acquired its present form over many years: many differently-sized rooms, some built up against one another at different times ... Some of the rooms lead off one another, others have doors so low that you have to double up to enter, yet others are doorless; some have many windows, some none. The walls are smooth and plastered with a mixture of rough sand, black mud and animal dung, likewise the roofs, while the ceilings are of acacia wood and palm-tree trunks and stalks. A maze of a house, cool in summer, warm in winter; if one looks objectively at it from outside one feels it to be a frail structure, incapable of survival, but somehow as if by a miracle, it has surmounted time" — Tayeb 🏠
Ahh, I miss building such houses.  When I left Kenya for Australia, I couldn't wait to get out of that horrible place. But after living here for some years, I started missing these little things from the place I was so eager to leave. Every now and then, i'm hit with a pang of nostalgia. 🏠
"All really inhabited space bears the essence of the notion of home ... the imagination functions in this direction whenever the human being has found the slightest shelter: we shall see the imagination build "walls" of impalpable shadows, confort itself with the illusion of protection—or, just the contrary, tremble behind thick walls, mistrust the staunchest ramparts ... the sheltered being gives perceptible limits to his shelter. He experiences the house in Its reality and virtuality, by means of thought and dreams. It is no longer in its positives aspects that house is really "lived," nor is it only in the passing hour that we recognize its benefits" — Gaston

Boo Radley would make a low-key rad platonic husband... Not gonna lie... (Also Atticus, but pretty much everyone goes for him these days lmao-) That aside, I like how his design came out, even if it's a little generic. I imagine his fur to be fairly matted (and possibly faded) due to staying inside so often, but he's still a good fluff at heart.

What was the last book you didn’t want to end?
.
I’ve been wrapped up in ‘Spinning Silver’ by Naomi Novik for a couple days now and it’s SO GOOD. I’m dreading the ending because I know it will come too soon. 😭
.
P. S. Isn’t this vintage Alice the most beautiful thing? Here’s the ISBN for anyone interested: 9781587265327

Here’s the ISBN for anyone interested: 9781587265327 . . . . . . . #aliceinwonderland  #alicesadventuresinwonderland  #lewiscarroll  #beautifulbooks  #prettybooks  #bookish  #bookishfeatures  #bookstagrammer  #bookstagramfeature  #bookphoto  #bookphotography  #bookflatlay  #booksonbooks  #booksoninstagram  #bookaccount  #bookcommunity  #bookcollector  #bookcollection  #bookblog  #bookblogger  #classiclit  #classicliterature  #booksandplants  #zebraplant  #culturetripbooks  #vintagebooks  #met_createchange  #bookcovers
