'Y am mirar a través del espacio con instrumentos e inteligencias con los que apenas si hemos soñado, ven a solo cincuenta y cinco milliones de  kilómetros de ellos una estrella matutina de la esperanza: nuestro propio planeta, mucho más templado, lleno de verdor de la vegetación y del azul del agua, con una atmosfera nebulosa que indica fertilidad y con amplias extensiones de tierra capaz de sostener la vida en gran número.' - H.G. Wells, La guerra de los mundos

Leyendo este clásico en el parque 👽🌴🍃 ¡Es fenomenal - qué historia más chulo!

If you haven't read The War of the Worlds I can say so far that I'm really, really enjoying it. If you have read it, don't tell me how it ends! 😉

'The fury of a demon instantly possessed me. I knew myself no longer. My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body; and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.' - Edgar Allan Poe, The Black Cat

What is it about black cats? Why do they conjure up such ideas, thoughts and superstitious? And why do people love them so much? 🖤

"I think I have heard you say that their uncle is an attorney in Meryton”
•
“Yes; and they have another, who lives somewhere near Cheapside.”
•
“That is capital,” added her sister, and they both laughed heartily.
•
“If they had uncles enough to fill all Cheapside,” cried Bingley, “it would not make them one jot less agreeable.”
•
“But it must very materially lessen their chance of marrying men of any consideration in the world,” replied Darcy.
•
- Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 🎩💰
•
•
What snobs! Personally, I would have jumped at the opportunity to explore Cheapside in the early 1800's. But then again, I don't own Pemberley.

Hey Bookstagram folks! Let's go spooky. What is  your all-time favourite Gothic literature monster?
🌘
For me, I would go classic : Dracula. ⚰
✴
Or the ghosts in A Christmas Carol.🕯
🏰
Remember: Frankenstein is the scientist, not the creature. 🖤📗

'Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.' - Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein
▫️
A day by the lake at St. Moritz. Blissful. Lying on the bank, sun shining, feet in the water, snoozing. Happiness is completely free.
▫️
Also, being in the country which was the birthplace of the novel Frankenstein is an added bonus.

''O God!' I screamed, and 'O God!' again and again; for there before my eyes--pale and shaken, and half fainting, and groping before him with his hands, like a man restored from death--there stood Henry Jekyll!' - Robert Louis Stevenson

The end of a day's writing. Brain fatigued, I had to take a few moments to remember the word 'adverb' ('Preverb'? 'Proverb'? No, that isn't right...) and I can't face another cup of tea. All in all though, a good day. Those days when you finish writing on an exhausted high are heaven sent. ✴🖤✴

'Els Quatre Gats was just a five-minute walk from our house and one of my favourite haunts. My parents had met there in 1932, and I attributed my one-way ticket into this world in part to the old cafe's charms. Stone dragons guarded a lamplit facade. Inside, voices seemed to echo with shadows of other times. Accountants, dreamers, and would-be geniuses shared tables with the spectres of Pablo Picasso, Isaac Albeniz, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Salvador Dali. There any poor devil could pass for a historical figure for the price of a small coffee.' - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

'Villains!' I shrieked. 'Dissemble no more! I admit the deed! Tear up the planks! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!' - Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart 🖤
•
I know it's not his most favoured quote but it's my favourite. Whoever screams "Villains!" at unsuspecting policemen in a frenzy of anguish deserves a tip of the hat at the very least. 🎩
•
What's your favourite line/quote/phrase from Poe...?

Today was a day for bargains - at Re-read, a second-hand bookshop on Gran Via in Barcelona, you can pick up 5 books for 10 euros. 📘💶

'Tears were not the things to find their way to Mr. Bumble's soul; his heart was waterproof.'

'Bless their dear little hearts!" said Mrs. Mann with emotion, "they're as well as can be, the dears! Of course, except the two that died last week.'

So I'm currently binge-watching a BBC adaptation of Little  Dorrit from 2008. It stars Matthew Macfadyen, Claire Foy and one of my favourite "character" actors, Eddie Marsan. It's really watchable and I'm hooked. If you love Dickens and you get a chance, took a look.
•
Have you seen any historical adaptations recently that you would recommend? Film or TV. Many thanks! ✴🖤✴
