Today we're continuing our series of spooky collaborations; this time we've joined up with embroiderer @memorialstitches. Read through to the end and you'll find out how you could win all of Carrie's choices + one of her gorgeous pieces.
🦇
Hi everyone, I hope you like the books I've chosen. Let me know if you've read any of these too.
.
1. The Yellow Wallpaper
Cited as a significant example of early feminist literature The Yellow Wallpaper paints a picture of an un-named woman's descent into psychosis. Exploring late 19th century attitudes towards mental health, the subject is confined to a peculiar room and forbidden to work or exert herself. Here begins an unnerving journey which I found both fascinating and frightening.
.
2. We Have Always Lived In The Castle
Often regarded as the author's greatest achievement We Have Always Lived In The Castle was Shirley Jackson's last novel before her death. The book centres around the main character Merricat who, along with her sister and ailing uncle, survived the gruesome murder of her family through arsenic poisoning. The family retreat into a life of social exclusion and isolation, and persecuted by the locals Merricat finds solace in sympathetic magic. The book's dark undercurrent is perfectly juxtaposed with an innocence found in the naive rituals and pagan traditions performed by the sisters. This book is for anyone who has felt shunned for their 'otherness' and created an imaginary sanctuary.
.
3. Dracula
This one will always hold a special place in my heart, Bram Stoker's Gothic masterpiece effortlessly delves into the darkest torments and fears that plagued the Victorian psyche. Immigration, promiscuity and a moral malaise are devilishly explored against the dimly lit gloom of London's streets. The harrowing tale that ensues brings these anxieties to life when the ancient vampire Dracula is shipwrecked in the coastal town of Whitby... and a living nightmare begins.
.
So those are three of my favourite Halloween-suited reads. If you'd like to win the books and my bat embroidery, just make sure you're following @penguinukbooks and @memorialstitches and tag a friend in the comments below.

22. LOVE IS... When one is a muse

@bloomsburypublishing Modern Classics stealing my heart one book at a time 😍 Bloomsbury sent over a few from the new collection and the covers and simple design are so stunning.
.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke has been on my tbr for years so I was beyond excited to snag this copy. I’m hoping I can pick it up before the end of the year 🙏🏻.
.

Have you read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell? And have you gotten your hands on any of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics? They’ve got ten titles in the line up! .

I read this book in a frenzy almost in around 24 hours (not all at once, jeez), once I started I just could not get enough of Ali Smith’s quirky, almost poetry like prose which was a HUGE SURPRISE! I’m not a massive poetry fan, I always joke I’m too dense but actually I’m semi-serious, so the fact that I found something so lyrical and playful so hugely enjoyable is something I’m proud of!
.
Autumn is jam-packed with British cultural references and humour, so I can see how some of it may not appeal to non-UK readers (déjà vu of my Fell review 😂), and I loved it. I loved chuckling at the inefficiency and slowness of the Post Office, I loved feeling like I’d been punched in the gut when Smith so perfectly described the bitter feelings of disappointment and sadness after Brexit and all the awful stuff that came after it. It’s very much a book that makes you feel, that makes you slam the book shut and say YES TO ALL OF THIS! And surely that’s the mark of an excellent book, to provoke a strong reaction?
.
I also loved that it opened my eyes to the work and life of Pauline Boty, which was at first admittedly random, but then I was just as sucked in. Yet more evidence of how women of history are shunted to the side, did you know there was a female founder of Pop Art?! Because I didn’t. 💁
.
This novel is one that I could read 17 times and still find something new to appreciate each time, through her wordplay, rhymes, reflections, references that I may have missed... it’s a veritable goldmine! It’s fun, explorative, informative, contemporary, and I’m so glad I chose this as my first Ali Smith. Very much looking forward to getting to know her work further ☺️

I’ve found FOUR NEW FAVOURITES THIS MONTH! October, I love you.

Warning...don’t try this at home! 😂

Meet my Poison Apple “Freakshake”! That thing is loaded with vanilla ice cream, cinnamon and chocolate donuts, caramel and chocolate sauce, whip cream, cherries...and sneaky bites of apple! It was an ooey-gooey mess and the most dangerous thing I’ve ever stacked on top of books (don’t try this at home). 😱

Back to the books! Here is my latest bookhaul... I actually ordered these a couple days ago from the Barnes and Noble 2 for $20 Teen books sale. I’m most excited for Girls Made of Snow and Glass, which has come highly recommended by a few people. Plus it’s a Snow White retelling... so it seemed fitting for this pic! 🍎

What books have you recently purchased that you’re excited about? 🍎

I’m gonna go slip into a sugar coma now... 🍨

Do you remember the day you told me those three magical words, I traveled in space and time that day. " I  l o v e  y o u ", these words left your lips and made a home in my heart filling the void that once my heart was used to.

I've kept that moment alive in my memory. It becomes more alive when I see it on a wall, hanging from a nail and trapped in a frame.

I remember that moment. .

In the time that's yet to come, I see us growing old together.

There you sit, with a cat resting on your lap and reading Pride And Prejudice for sixty-sixth time in your late seventies.

With your glasses on, you'd read aloud stories to our grandchildren or maybe fairy tales. Yes, that'd be great and when you'd feel tired, I'd make a cup of coffee for you.

you'd sing them lullabies and when they'd fall asleep, I'll be the only one awake.
I see us growing old together.

You'd lean on my left shoulder and maybe then, we'd watch some movie. good old movie. I'd prefer watching "me before you". What about you? .

Then, you'd tell me if time travel was possible, you'd have traveled back in time and have said 'yes' that day. You'd repent on tearing the love letter apart I once wrote to you.
Even then, I'll hold your hand.

I'll tell you some good things. Good things, like stories. Stories about time travel, about the beings who live on Mars, about the promises meant to be broken, about pretty little things that matter.

About us, in some parallel universe making love together.

I'll tell you stories, to make you feel it's alright.

To make you feel it's not a dream.

To make you feel we were like this, always. Together. .

I'll stay there only, with you.

but I'll not tell you whether time travel is possible or not,

because even I'm trying to figure this out since the day you've told me " I  l o v e  y o u ". .

I see us on a wall, hanging from a nail and trapped in a frame. // lost in space and time and love

THE SERVANTS... it explores avenues that have never been explored before. It's daring and captivating - whether you're a religious person or not. There's everything for everyone. PILOT EPISODE.

Finished "The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon In Two" early this week and I must say that though I enjoyed it, I was a bit disappointed as well. Much of the action was concentrated in the last few chapters and everything that came before just felt like a prelude before the main event which seemed always around the corner but wasn't. It was well-written, imaginative and funny, and I loved spending time with favourite characters, but for me the pacing was all off. However, after what happened at the end, I'm very excited to read the next book in the series.
It's been a very hectic month so far, but since it has been filled mostly with things I enjoy, the work hasn't felt a whole lot like "work" and it's only the lack of free time that I want to change 😅 I've been reading other books as well in the meantime, be sure to stop by my Twitter for discussions/mini-reviews on them and all other bookish things. It's @AnuNandeWriter for those of you not following me yet.
Hope everyone's having a nice weekend! 😊

Dreya is an enigma at best, and a terrifying foe at the worst. Soft-spoken yet strong, she wields Air with panache, having used it so deeply that her entire body has turned the color of clouds. 🌫💨🌬⚡️#runebinder

[FLASH-FICTION]
.
.
The pain was more than she could bear. With every burning quake she whimpered in agony, shuddering from the shock.
Once she got her breath back she prepared herself for the next torturous event...but what she felt instead was another hand clasping over her own.
She caught herself before looking at the hand and who it belonged too. Tears filled her eyes as she smiled at him. The one she truly loved.
And then it all fades away, the pain rendering itself as void, because in his presence no such adversary could exist. And that was why she loved him the most.
