This atelier perched atop a house in #valparaiso has embraced the light with a stunning amount of windows on every wall and skylights on the roof. This is my idea of studio space. #chile #armchairadventures #architecture

Day 7 of #NaNoWriMo is nearly done and I’m sad to say I have my managed to type a word yet today. I’m hoping to manage to add even just 100 words before bed, just so I know I have pushed forward. Today’s #wrimohero prompt is #meetthementor - who are your favourite authors? This is so hard to answer because there are SO many! The ones I come back to time again, though, are: JK Rowling, Brandon Sanderson, Laini Taylor, Patrick Rothfuss, Erin Morgenstern, Phillip Pullman. I’m also going to add Anne Lamont, Jeff VanDerMeer and Elizabeth Gilbert for their writing advice! QOTD: who are your favourite authors?

So many of those classic cartoons contain a musical soundtrack with a classical kick.
In this month's edition of Armchair Adventures, educator Len Sharp will talk about the pieces from great composers that accompany vintage favorites from Tom and Jerry, Donald Duck and 'Fantasia 1940,' just to name a few.
'Music in Cartoons' will allow Sharp to explore how compositions from Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bach and Mozart have accompanied helped move animation through the decades, from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Carman Community Room.

Another brilliant box from @booksthatmatteruk - the book looks brilliant (as you would expect from a Man Booker nominee!) and I love the beautifully designed badge, key ring and sticker as well. Also love the touch of including some Black History Month info! Well done, Molly! #smashedit

This is my (slightly ambitious) TBR for the next couple of months. I say ambitious because I’m about to enter a super busy period at work, we’re still working on renovations at home, and I’ve also decided (possibly rather stupidly) to join NaNoWriMo this year.🙈 I’d ask why I do these things to myself but it seems a rather pointless question really. I’m excited to read Strange The Dreamer and Autumn for the first time and am looking forward to rereading The Book Thief and The Wise Man’s Fear. No Plot? No Problem is hopefully going to guide me through NaNo whilst helping me maintain some shred of sanity... wish me luck.🤞 QOTD: What over-ambitious goals have you set for yourself lately?

The struggle of being human. Such a truly compassionate story to achieve one's dreams. So glad I've chosen this book as my holiday read @benfogle #up #everest #armchairadventures

Happy#socksunday lovely people! I hope your weekends have been filled with books, relaxation and happiness. We’ve had a lovely couple of days with lots of walking around the beautiful city of Copenhagen - my legs and feet are aching and grateful to be back at our lovely Air BnB for some down-time. I finally finished reading Red Clocks, which I started back in April; even though it’s taken me so long to read I did really enjoy it and found it very pertinent and thought provoking. Trying to decide what to pick up next (alongside Warlock Holmes of course, which I’m still loving!). QOTD: What have you read recently (or ages ago!) that you’d recommend? Anything that should be added to my already teetering TBR?! 🙈

Warlock Holmes in Copenhagen! We’re enjoying a long weekend in Denmark to escape the DIY chaos at home and get some proper R&R and I had to bring Warlock Holmes with me. I’m absolutely loving @gsdenning’s highly entertaining Sherlock retelling - there aren’t many books that make me laugh out right but this one has! Just what’s needed after a busy, stressful few weeks. ☺️ QOTD: what’s your favourite light-hearted or humorous read?

If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know by now that my @pageanchor is my favourite bookish accessory. I remember seeing one on Instagram when they were preparing to launch and had mine preorder as soon as humanly possible. I still maintain that it is one of the most beautiful and functional things I own. I’ve also loved seeing the different designs be released and have really enjoyed how well the Pageanchor team interact with people here on Instagram - always liking and commenting when their product is featured. I would absolutely adore the chance to be a rep for the upcoming season, to continue to promote a product I love and work with their awesome team. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all who enter.✨ ⚓️ #pageanchorrep #bookstagram #bookstagramuk #bookworm #booklove #bookdragon #readmore #bookstagramfeatures #somanybookssolittletime #armchairadventures #bookish #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookblogger #ILoveBooks #bookishaccessory #bookmark

I’ve been fortunate enough to be sent a copy of @gsdenning’s Warlock Holmes: A Study In Brimstone for review and decided to make it one of my October reads. Sherlock Holmes + fantasy + humour? I’m there. I’m only a little way in but it’s already got me chuckling to myself so I’m looking forward to getting further into the story. QOTD: What are some of your favourite retellings? Any that bend the story or characters in strange and unusual ways?

Hooray for work wives who bring you coffee on a blustery Friday morning. Just 8 hours until the weekend... QOTD: What lovely small gestures make your day a bit brighter?

I am struggling to remember the last time I sat and read for any length of time and this makes me inordinately sad. Reading is my escape, my happy place, my way of redressing the balance - it’s no coincidence that my current reading drought coincides exactly with my feeling increasingly stressed, anxious and low. But making the time just seems to be impossible - there’s always something else that ‘needs’ doing.😞 I’m carving out a little corner of time now - just 15 minutes - whilst my phone (and I!) regains some charge before heading back out again. QOTD: do you find that a lack of reading (or anything else) has a big impact on how you feel and function?

Name that western geological marvel! When you spend too many hours on Google Earth and randomly find cool places. #geology #utah #roguegeologist #freetime #nerdalert #googleearth #mysteryplace #armchairadventures

Last but certainly not least in my poetry favourites is this exquisite book from @robgmacfarlane and @jackiemorrisartist - the illustrations are absolutely stunning, seeming to live right off the page, and the wonderful collection of acrostic poetry celebrating the natural world bring back all the wonders of a childhood spent in the garden and exploring the woods. Filled with nostalgia, hope and marvel this collection is the antidote to our hectic digital lives. You’ll want to wander in the great outdoors from the first page.

I fell in love with @ladybookmad’s poetry with her first collection - the princess saves herself in this one - but for me, her second collection - the witch doesn’t burn in this one - is something truly remarkable. Raw and empowering, Lovelace uses not just the words but the form of her poems to raise a call to arms at the same time as inviting you into the embrace of the sisterhood. This collection raised the hairs on my arms with it’s power and the connection it offers.
