MOST RECENT

‘The Kite Runner’ has been the last book which was a 5 star read for me. I have read a lot of books since then, but this one’s been special.
Exceptional books invoke emotions in you, they make you ‘feel’ and in the process, maybe expose you to things you’ve never seen or heard before. They broaden your horizons, expand your thought process and they might also change your opinion about something. Books are magic.

#BookQuestion : What are some of the ‘exceptional’ books that have done this for you?

If it's not the insomnia keeping me up, it's a migraine...I can't seem to win lately in the sleep department. Early this morning I woke up with a terrible migraine & since my heavy-duty migraine meds don't seem to be helping, I'm hoping an extra dose of caffeine will do the trick 🤞☕🤞

Since reading is pretty much going to be out until this migraine goes away, I might as well take settle in with a good #audiobook. I'm going to start THE STORYTELLER'S SECRET by Sejal Badani, narrated by Siiri Scott. I love books that delve into other cultures & this one takes us into to India, a place I haven't read too much about. It also tackles an issue that is close to my heart & I find a quiet strength in reading about women going through this. ❤

Happy #teathursday everyone! Almost to the weekend!

QOTD: Do you enjoy tea? What is your favorite flavor or type?
*.
AOTD: I love tea! My type/flavor changes with the seasons. Right now I am transitioning from fruity teas to more “fall-ish” teas, like cinnamon and black teas.

#booksandbakes The Lido by Libby Page.
The Lido is that all too rare thing, a sweet and optimistic read. I loved the story of 20-something Kate and 86-year-old Rosemary, who bond over the threatened closure of Brockwell Lido in Brixton.
I used to swim at Brockwell and her descriptions of the pool and the neighbourhood really took me back. Though if I have a quibble, it’s that the book presents a slightly sanitised version of Brixton life. I loved the sense of community though, and cheering lonely, anxious Kate along as she finds her place in a pocket of the city.
Have you read it? Do let me know what you think.
The bake: Cheddar and sorrel muffins. I was sent a sorrel plant by @britherbkitchen a couple of months ago and I’ve been snipping the lemony leaves to add to pesto, salads, or - as here - folded through savoury muffins and scones.

All our pins we’ve made so far! They’re all still available at the moment except the Prythian map pin which sold out 🙊 my favourite is the Carranam pin I think! But we have so much planned for the next few months so who knows if it will remain my favourite 🙊
.
How do you guys feel about seasonal/holiday themed pins? Such as winter, fall, Christmas etc. I’d love to know! We have a couple of ideas for Christmas but would love to know if you guys like them or not! 🤗

How gorgeous are these bookmarks from @moledrocraftco?! I love their designs so, so much!

On another note, who wants to petition to get the rest of Austen’s novels published like this Sense and Sensibility with @himmapaan’s illustrations?? They NEED to be done!!

Tonight I am curled up on the couch and deeply invested in a new book by a debut author (Shattermoon by Dominic Dulley for the #tomeinfinityandbeyond readathon, for those who are curious). I am, however, eagerly counting down the days until I have a new VE Schwab book to read... Vengeful is so close!

It’s almost the weekend, everyone. Happy #fridayeve 🙌🏼 This weekend means nothing for me except immense amounts of packing and cleaning. I haven’t read (unless you consider audiobooks + scripture study, reading), in 4 days and I’m feeling a little empty inside. I really want to finish my two current reads: P.S. I Still Love You, and Nevernight (which was a buddy read with @thewellreadfox and @worldswithinpages but they’ve finished it I think 😭), and also catch up on some reviews for you guys.
-
Do you have big plans this weekend? Do you feel drained and sad when you know there won’t be any time for reading?

Do you like morally gray characters? Who is your favorite?

My favorite character from SoC iz Jesper, but I can't decide if he's morally gray? He's a thief and everything, yet he doesn't feel like one to me. Kaz fits into that description a lot better, so I'll go with him for this question. 🤔

Qotd: Do you read poetry?
Me: Not really, I used to write loads when I was a teenager. I need poetry to be read aloud for it to come alive for me and that can be an awkward thing to do if you aren't alone in a private space.

"Aunque sea mentira, aunque sea un sueño, por favor, mírame. Tu sonrisa de aquel día no es mentira, no es un sueño. Al menos, si te vuelves a mirarme, podría ser mi mentira, mi sueño. Pero el día que pronuncies mi nombre, no será mentira, no será un sueño." (Koushun Takami)

"Don't feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that." Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami (1987)

I'm indulging myself today because yesterday I disappointed myself. I got a not-too-terrible but personally very disappointing grade in one of my exams and spent the better half of yesterday afternoon feeling very sorry for myself.

I have a million and one things to do this week for work and for study. But, this morning, I slept in until 11, made myself a nice big @jingtea tea-tiere full of @birdandblendtea's Spiced Pumpkin Pie and sat and read Killing Commendatore, sent to me by the lovely team at @vintagebooks. Balance is restored.

Enough things in my life have gone wonderfully, unexpectedly well in the last few months that I really can't complain about a bad grade. I really don't have the right to. In the grand scheme of karmic balance, winning some and losing some, I've come out on top. And for that I am grateful.

Happy Thursday lunchtime everyone.

#QOTD: How do you deal with disappointment? It could be exam results, messing up at work, anything.

What you fear is often a mirage. The real deal is in your favour.
Stop holding back on the things God has laid in your heart to do.
