Tomorrow may be Dad’s 64th birthday but today he treated me 💙 - a book on my mental ‘to read’ list for sometime and as I collect Smith’s books {she is one of my favourite writers} this hardback edition is perfection ✨🙏🏼

"The past is the beginning of the beginning and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. #hgwells #britishwriters #newbeginnings

Sounds like an INFP to me. Already in love with Elizabeth Goudge’s lyrical writing! #Britishwriters #currentread #quote bookworm

Paradise Lodge is easily one of the funniest books I've ever read - right up there with High Fidelity.
Maybe you have to enjoy dry humour to appreciate it but I'll share anyway:
"I knew Matron had had a tough life. She often talked about the bad old days whenever it was she'd grown up - when you weren't allowed to eat a bag of crisps in the street and they probably didn't have crisps anyway, but even if they did she couldn't afford them and people's parents were always drowning themselves or drowning kittens or leaving in the night or whipping children."

The latest from Sebastian Faulks, Paris Echo, has arrived. I have high hopes.

For the last time, we present to you our amazing Top 10 😍😍😍. Slide to check out the randomly selected battle pairings for Round 2. Each poet has been paired with another poet, regardless of country. Round 3 is our Coach's Challenge. @angel_writer @_aashrayraizada @thehollowgram @lindalokheeauthor challenged the competitors to create a 4 stanza, 16 line poem using a line from each of the coaches' poems in each stanza. Only one poet from each battle pair will advance along with 1 wildcard. It's going to be so difficult to form our 6 semi-finalists. But, we have some incredible judges (@therebelpoet_ @destructivediary @wordsofvinay @jarraley @palemanpoetry) who will be making some tough decisions in a few days. Comment below to cheer on your favorite competitor. Who are you rooting for? Which country are you hoping wins? 🇺🇸🇮🇳🇬🇧🇦🇺

#BakitaReads - September book recommendation: @slayinyourlane 🙌🏿🙌🏾🙌🏽 This is a book I wish my younger self had read and a book I'm so grateful to read now. I've highlighted so many lines of this book - it's filled with realities, wisdom and hope. A book I've always needed!

I love that this book features the experiences of so many phenomenal Black British women killing it in their respective industries, but the authors' voices remain the most prominent.
I'm loving and appreciating the growing number of writing that centres on Black British women's experiences. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- #bookrecommendations #Books #reading#booklover #broadenyourmind #sharingiscaring #entrepreneur #SocialJustice #businessowner #businesswoman #WorkLifeBalance #WorkLife #blackwriters #britishwriters #blackwomenwriters #booklover

The Complete Short Stories of Roald Dhal, Volume One, includes stories written between 1944 and 1953. Many of us know Roald Dhal (1916-1990) for his children books but since today is Roald Dhal Day let’s draw some attention to his stories for adults too. My favourite ones in this collection are Katina, The Sound Machine and Lamb to the Slaughter. Many of Dhal’s stories take place in apparently normal and innocent situations where unexpected and often disquieting events happen. Dhal himself said: “I ought to warn you, if you haven’t read any of my stories, that you may be a little disturbed by some of the things that happen in them”. His stories have been translated into Spanish (second photo in this post). #roalddhal #roalddhalday #shortstories #shortstoryteller #cuentos #historiascortas #writers #whatiamreading #bookreview #bookrecommendation #bookclub #books #libros #librorecomendado #clubdelibro #english #ingles #spanish #español #escritores #relatos #britishwriters #reading #lectura #livres #livresrecommandes #histoirescourtes #booklover #leyendo #literatura

An unsentimental examination of the death (and decomposition) of two married zoologists. I haven't read anything like it. One to savour. #beingdead #jimcrace

When your world ends and suddenly you realise there are so many other things yet to be discovered.

Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden is the story of an orphan girl named Mary Lennox. Her loneliness and inquisitive nature lead her to find the secret garden. As an ill tempered and neglected child, the garden soothes her and helps her to piece her life back together again. It is a kind of a story that can be enjoyed by both child and adult together. "One of the strange things about living in the world is that it is only now and then one is quite sure one is going to live forever and ever and ever. One knows it sometimes when one gets up at the tender solemn dawn-time and goes out and stands out and throws one's head far back and looks up and up and watches the pale sky slowly changing and flushing and marvelous unknown things happening until the East almost makes one cry out and one's heart stands still at the strange unchanging majesty of the rising of the sun--which has been happening every morning for thousands and thousands and thousands of years."
