THE FAROE ISLANDS: Barbara - Jørgen-Frantz Jacobsen

Enjoyable, if a bit uneventful at times. Characters evoked emotion in me (positive and negative ones!) which is always a good thing.
3/5 - didn't mind it!

Have you read Barbara? What did you think? Let me know! 😁

Next up: ICELAND!

'Someone is walking directly behind me, matching me pace for pace. Her perfume catches in the back of my throat: a strong, heady mix of musk and something floral. Jasmine maybe, or lily. She's so close she'd smack into me if I stopped abruptly. Why doesn't she just overtake? It's a quiet street, tucked round the back of the university, with space for half a dozen cars to park but the pavement is easily wide enough for two people to walk abreast of each other.' - Opening paragraph. *

A quick, sharp and claustrophobic rollercoaster of a read. It all happens so quickly and you get sucked in. The perfect kind of read if you are suffering from a book hangover or feel a slump coming on. Thanks to @meetbookgirl @avon_books for this one. It was a great read!
Rating - 3.5🌟

"I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right." --Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
Writing has been a #struggle for me lately. Mostly because I don't have the time to #write, and when I do find that time, it's at the end of a very exhausting day and writing is the last thing I want to do. But still I try to write. Because God has given me something to say and I'm going to say it. As I sit here trying to finish this #school assignment and hating #words, I'm determining to write tonight. Sometimes beautiful words can be written at ugly times.
Have you been struggling in your writing lately? How are you dealing with it?

SCOTLAND: Negative Space - Zoë Strachan

Slow-paced, forgettable characters, often vulgar... I really wanted to enjoy this one, but unfortunately I just didn't. Deserves a re-read in the future though, as there were interesting themes and ideas running through it!
1/5 - really didn't like it!

Have you read Negative Space What did you think? Have I got it all wrong? 🙈 Let me know! 😁

I DID IT!!😱💪🏻😍
Okay, I already told you, but who cares?
When I started reading it, I thought I’d make a review, when I had finished it. But I just don’t feel like doing it.
I can’t tell you why, but it just feels strange to do a review of a fairytale, if you understand?
So instead I’ll just write some of my thoughts here, but it won’t be a real review.
First of all, I really enjoyed reading a fairytale.
It has been a long time since I did last, but I really love fairytales.
I really like sometimes to read a book without a deeper meaning. Not because I don’t like those, I do, sometimes I just need a break.
Because a lot of fairytales don’t have a deeper meaning, the author just wants to tell a good story. And I like that.
While reading it, you hear about Bilbo (from The Hobbit), and that he is writing the book, you’re reading right now, Lord of the rings.
It just makes the story even more magical, and make it seem more kind of... real. Of course I know, the story isn’t real, but when you read it, you kind of... imagine it was real. You don’t just imagine the story and the persons, but you also imagine it was real.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t imagine that every story I read is/was real. I am imaging the persons, the universe, the whole story, but I don’t imagine it was real
But I did with this one!
It’s hard to explain... because I know, it is just an imagination, but I still imagine it.
I’m not sure you’ll understand, but I don’t think I can do it better than this.
The book really changed my mind about Gollum, you know that ugly creature Bilbo steals the ring from, in The Hobbit.
In The Hobbit Gollum is just ugly and disgusting, but in this book he actually turns out being very cute. If you ask me, my sister doesn’t think so😂
I won’t give the book any stars, because this is just my thoughts, not a review.
But I want you to know, I really liked it, and hope to read more fairytales in the future.
But I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts!😀
Have a great Tuesday!😊💕

NORTHERN IRELAND: Eureka Street - Robert McLiam Wilson

Interesting fictional account of difficult times in NI, but I didn't really feel any connection with the characters, and rushed for this one to be over. Not my cup of tea!
2/5 - didn't like it!

Have you read Eureka Street? What did you think? Did I entirely miss the point? Let me know! 😁

Next up: SCOTLAND!

'We lose ourselves in books, we find ourselves too' - Author Unknown.
I sure am looking forward to losing myself in a book tonight. Yes it's 6am and I am already dreaming about the end of the day! 🙊 I hope everyone had a better Monday than I did. I ended up working extremely late after receiving some unexpected information from a child, had dinner at 8pm and saw Saara for all of two minutes 😭😭 Here's wishing today is a heck of a lot more calmer!

"One man's ways may be as good as another's, but we all like our own best." --Jane Austen, Persuasion
Happy Monday! A fresh start to a new week. I've got a lot of #school to get done this week before I fly out to see a friend! I'd really like to not have to do much of it when I visit her, but it's going to be #busy! What are you up to this week, friends? Have any fun plans? What are your #goals?

What thoughts waft through your mind when think of books?
Perhaps several evenings spent cuddling one, sanguine eyes pursuing a most delightsome string of words; finding them there carved into paper as if echoes of cherished dreams - the snuggest & the sweetest.
Does it remind you of nights innumerable spent thinking, “just one more page,” yet silently promising not to yield ‘til THE END?
Or, the rush of excitement felt on beholding the book that seemed as though it had been written for you!
Or of the sigh that escaped when a book simply did not turn out the way you’d so been vouching for?

Thanks to @theclubofbooks for this post a few days ago. We love reading posts like this. Knowing how much you enjoy reading Elementum Journal brings such big smiles to our faces. Hope you've managed to get your copy back from your husband @theclubofbooks 😉
Morning everyone! What are you all up to today? Any concrete plans or just going to go with the flow? I have lots of cooking to do for the week ahead and then plan on settling down with a new read! *
So, give me anything to do with nature, apart from camping, and I am there. That's why when a truly beautiful journal arrived the other day it made me heart happy. It is described as glorious. I promise you it is. Scroll across to see a couple of the stunning images in this book which is perfect for nature, book and art lovers like myself. The husband has bagged it for his current read but we both enjoyed turning the thick pages and being utterly mesmerised. *
Full of poetry and prose, from the Scottish glens to bone caves to leaf talk, this journal is like having a conversation with nature. One of my favourites was the chapter on 'abandoned mines', where an engineer has created 3D maps of more than 350 abandoned mines around the world. His imagery is odd yet breathtaking. *
The journal would make the perfect gift for any occasion. It is shipped worldwide and annual subscriptions are available too. Have a look at their account on Instagram - it is a wonderous feast for your eyes! @elementumjournal

I'm back with a 'Word of the Day' - it's been a while but I haven't had to use a dictionary for a while too. I doubt I'm getting better with my words; probably just pure fluke! 😆 *

Today's #WordOfTheDay is 'tchotchke' which is an inexpensive souvenir, trinket or ornament. It's pronounced chahch-kuh! Here is the paragraph it was used in, taken from 'Water for Elephants' - "I used to think I preferred getting old to the alternative, but now I'm not sure. Sometimes the monotony of bingo and sing-alongs and ancient dusty people parked in the hallway in wheelchairs makes me long for death. Particularly when I remember that I'm one of the ancient dusty people, filed away like some worthless tchotchke." Now there's a paragraph for you and that is why it was a 5🌟 read! *

Wishing everyone the best start to the week and the happiest of Mondays. Well, as happy as we can be about the fact it's Monday but you get my drift! 🤗💛 ______________________________

Book Thoughts/ Review!
Wow, it has been a while since I have posted! This week was so busy for me. My only day off from work was today, which means time to play catch-up on reading and posts, so I decided to give my thoughts and review of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
I feel like there is not much I could say that has not been said already about this book. I loved the writing, the characters, the settings, everything. The way Oscar Wilde wrote scenery to reflect how the characters were feeling, and accent what they were saying was perfect, and my aspect of the book. For instance, when Dorian first met Lord Henry at Basil’s studio they went into Basil’s garden for a talk; the garden was beautiful and lush, full of blooming life, just like Dorian’s mind blooming from talking to, and learning from Lord Henry’s hedonistic philosophy. The way this scene was written made it so impactful, and I do not think it would have been such an important scene if not for the garden’s life accenting it.
Speaking of Lord Henry, he was by far my favorite character. I understood fully why people found him so interesting, he was charming, he spoke his mind, and had really fascinating views on life. If he were real I would totally sit and talk to him for hours.
The Picture of Dorian Gray was a phenomenal book with well developed characters, beautiful imagery, and surprising philosophical points, which is why I give it a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5!
Have you read this book? What did you think about the characters’ views on life, do you agree or disagree with them? Comment below!

To journey through the book with the March sisters & to learn and cherish so much!
What a splendid read indeed!

PS. Have you watched the BBC's dramatisation of the novel? (I am only one episode through). What did you make of it?

#theclubofbooksreview - don't expect this to be your normal average read. It's not. It's weird. It's strange. At times, it reads really well. A lot of the time, I wanted it to move quicker and go somewhere. *

A and B are young women. They live together. B is becoming more like A. If A's boyfriend, C, likes A because she is A, but now B is the same as A, where does that leave A? *

This book has a lot of potential. Thank you to @readinginheelsuk for sending me this one a while ago! I think I knew where the author was going with it and I found it quite disturbing at times. It measures the amount of life extracted from us by our relationships, interactions, watching mundane TV on repeat. Yet I had no motivation to pick it up once I put it down and found it boring. Yet I wanted to carry on. But I just couldn't. The characters are unbearably flat and it just doesn't make for a compelling read. It's a DNF at approximately page 120.
#AlexandraKleeman - "Our faces, on the other hand, were made up of hundreds of different parts, each part separate and tenuous and capable of being ugly, each part waiting for a product designed to isolate and act upon it. Every time I looked at my face, I seemed to find another new piece to it, floating there next to or underneath or inside the others, all the parts together but impossible to connect." ______________________________

What was your last DNF? Tell me I'm not the only one!

“Dia tidak mungkin tahu bahwa pada saat ini, orang-orang yang berkumpul secara rahasia di seluruh negeri, semua mengangkat gelas dan berkata dengan suara pelan, "Untuk Harry Potterㅡanak laki-laki yang bertahan hidup!"”
ㅡHarry Potter and the Philosoper's Stone, J.K. Rowling.

Happy weekend, muggles! It feels like three-hours-free-day instead of three days.😂🙌
Ketika semua orang membaca Harry Potter sejak kecil, aku baru baca tahun ini, di usia 14, shame on meeeeeeeee. Harry musn't proud of this muggleborn Potterhead.
"WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN AFTER ALL THIS TIME, DUDE? THIS SUPERMAGICAL BOOK SHOULD BE ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE SERIES FOR ALL TIME." Tapi ya, Harry Potter, TLC dan Trilogi Legend masih berebut posisi wahid bookseries favoritku.
What do you think about Harry Potter series? Buku seri ke berapa yang jadi favoritmu?
Karena jujur, meski aku sangat-sangat-enjoy baca buku ini, aku merasa bosan sekaligus kagum. Kagum karena imajinasi Rowling yang tertata, dan bosan karena konfliknya entah muncul kapan.😂
Tell me your non spoiler opinion!🙌
Aku belum tamat baca buku pertama soalnya.😂
