INCIPIT
English caption down below⬇⠀


🇮🇹 Cominciò la sua nuova vita tirandosi in piedi, circondato da un buio freddo e da un'aria viziata che sapeva di polvere. Udì un rumore sferragliante, metallico. Un fremito violento scosse il pavimento sotto i suoi piedi. Il movimento improvviso lo fece cadere. Poi si trascinò all'indietro, a gattoni, con la fronte imperlata di sudore nonostante l'aria fredda. Battè la schiena contro una parete di metallo duro contro cui scivolò fino a incontrare l'angolo della stanza. Si lasciò cadere sul pavimento e tirò le gambe al petto, stringendole forte, nella speranza che gli occhi si abituassero presto all'oscurità.

🇬🇧 He began his new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale, dusty air. Metal ground against metal; a lurching shudder shook the floor beneath him. He fell down at the sudden movement and shuffles backward on his hands and feet, drops of sweat beading on his forehead despite the cool air. His back struck a hard metal wall; he slid along it until he hit the corner of the room. Sinking to the floor, he pulled his legs up tight against his body, hoping his eyes would soon adjust to the darkness.

Good morning! 🌞 When I saw these two trees earlier this fall, they immediately made me think of the Two Trees of Valinor. So pretty. 🤗

Is there anything better than a cold day, a hot cup of coffee, and a modern classic? ❄️☕️☺️📚 @the_spines

Good morning, friends! 👋🏻 Guess what? I finished THE SECRET HISTORY by Donna Tartt, and I couldn’t have loved it more. For my full thoughts (and trust me there are MANY) ✨head over to the blog✨ for my review!

The skinny, though? 📖 This book is something special. The prose is thoughtful, the story is well-paced and skewed with anticipation rather than surprise, the characters have more depth than some of the actual humans I know in real life, and questions of ethics, elitism, wealth, scholarship, power, death, life, and friendship are posed openly and with room to explore the dark and grey areas of each. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the depth and representation of female characters left something to be desired, but I nonetheless fell in love with this magnificent exploration of human behavior. Full marks from me. 🙌🏻

New blog post on meeting @lilyallen, and a review of her introspective, candid and compelling book My Thoughts Exactly <link in bio>. “I’m strong. I can be tough. I’ve been broken. I’m opinionated. I’m a people-pleaser. I’m spoilt. I’m needy. I contradict myself. I try to do good. I want to do good. I’m impassioned. I’m observant. Most importantly, I tell the truth. And this is my story.” I have all the feels. Within a week, I finished Lily Allen’s self-read audiobook (the print version isn’t available in Canada yet, but you can preorder it here) and saw her perform at the Phoenix in Toronto. It was my fourth time seeing Lily Allen live, and she didn’t disappoint.... 👑👑👑 To read the rest of my review, click the link in my bio!

This book was so much fun to read through🙌🏼. When I was in college I was realllyyyyy close to being a History major instead of English because of my obsession with ancient Egyptian history. I remember I fell in love with it when I saw The Mummy for the first time when I was ten and my parents bought me a book on hieroglyphics. This book reignited my fascination with its history and made me realllyyyy want to visit Egypt and live out my Evie dream🙆🏻‍♀️. Also, I loved reading about the different women. I knew a bunch about Cleopatra already, but learning more about Hatshepsut and Nefertiti were particularly interesting to me. Made me reallyyyyy wish I had went to @ucla and could have taken a class from @karacooney ! Anyone else in love with a time period? 👑

Synopsis from @amazon : This riveting narrative explores the lives of six remarkable female pharaohs, from Hatshepsut to Cleopatra--women who ruled with real power--and shines a piercing light on our own perceptions of women in power today.
Female rulers are a rare phenomenon--but thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt, women reigned supreme. Regularly, repeatedly, and with impunity, queens like Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra controlled the totalitarian state as power-brokers and rulers. But throughout human history, women in positions of power were more often used as political pawns in a male-dominated society. What was so special about ancient Egypt that provided women this kind of access to the highest political office? What was it about these women that allowed them to transcend patriarchal obstacles? What did Egypt gain from its liberal reliance on female leadership, and could today's world learn from its example?
Celebrated Egyptologist Kara Cooney delivers a fascinating tale of female power, exploring the reasons why it has seldom been allowed through the ages, and why we should care. #whenwomenruledtheworld

Hello reader friends! How is everyone handling their preparations for the holidays? I’m excited because it means an extra day of reading. Yay! So I’m in a small writing slump again (they happen) and I was thinking of trying bullet journaling as a way to organize my thoughts. So I’m wondering if anyone keeps a journal for the books they read? I’d be curious to hear some details if anyone is willing to share!

How cute are these Christmas socks? Got a bargain last week on this 2017 @happysocks giftbox. I especially love the candy cane ones, by the way why is there no candy cane emoji? 🎄
.
Also, there might not be any pictures the next couple of days. I'm currently in bed with the stomach flu 😩😩 And this is the only picture I had left from my little shoot on Friday, so yeah...

“I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot he held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for the fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

This was my first venture into adult fiction, and I fell in love. This is most possibly one of the most magical romances I’ve ever encountered, and one of the most unique stories I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. -

It’s been a while since I’ve read The LOTRs but the saga of Aragorn aka Strider aka Elessar aka Isildur’s Heir still resounds.
I’ve been thinking about how voice can help against the backdrop of an existential crisis and how in the midst of the wild a little bit of say-so helps go-go. Aragorn came to mind, particularly the words above as wanky as they can be at 4am around a backyard campfire in Northcote. Aragorn is the essence of Frost’s road less travelled, he takes the long way round to come into a place of true greatness, through extreme adversary.
The point? It’s fine to ramble. Ramble on as Led Zeppelin sang, just keep that voice, strong and true—of who you are and where you are. The rest takes care of itself.
The road less travelled is hard—but if you can hold all that you are, close to chest—Arwen Star—it makes every bit of difference. •
