MOST RECENT

🌱📚 I have had the most amazing semester break off uni, it’s been relaxing and fun and rejuvenating. But I’m ready to go back. Starting Monday, i will be onto my second semester of my Masters of Counselling and I’m feeling pretty keen. Not so keen about the 5:30-6am wake ups everyday, but keen nonetheless 😅 I’ve got all my books and notepads sorted out so I’m feeling quite organised 🌱📚

It feels like it's been a really long week.....Tea, and a good old read sitting in the deckchair with our two furry friends, Molly and Suzie, is how I'm intending to spend most of the weekend 😁📚📖 Just finished this 1952 edition I picked up @croftonbooks It's nearly 70 years old but falling to bits now I've had my mits on it!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! 💜🏵️🌾

Sooooo if you saw my stories yesterday you'll know that my agoraphobic little butt got herself ON A BUS. INTO TOWN. VOLUNTARILY. ON A BUSY HOT FLEA MARKET DAY. Which basically meant unsupervised roaming around maybe seven charity shops and the market stalls looking for books, plus a stop at the Patisserie Valerie takeaway counter. 😄

THE BOOKS!
📚 Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews, 99p, Mencap, have somehow never read!
📚 Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine, 99p, Mencap - young female Aspergers protagonist, been on my radar since before my diagnosis
📚 Contagious by Scott Sigler, 99p, Mencap - love a good plague thriller
📚 The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie, £2, market - in a cute Crime Club hardback
📚 Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote, £2.50, BHF - read it years ago, ditto seeing the movie, barely remember the plot at all!
📚 Meg by Steve Alten, £1.49, Oxfam - giant prehistoric shark novel, the find of the day! It's been on my wishlist for years and there's a campy movie out soon.
📚 All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, 99p, Bluebell Wood Hospice - had a copy at some point, movie on the way!
📚 Endless Night by Agatha Christie,99p, Bluebell Wood Hospice - never heard of it, but it mentioned a creepy plot of land where bad things happen. I'm IN!

Have you read any of these? What's your best ever secondhand book find?

#qotd Do you buy books at thrift shops? -
I do! I never know what I will find there. This haul is from my thrift shop raid today (3 for 1£!). .
.
🤓I love William Dalrymple's non-fiction dedicated to India, and I was surprised to find this copy in my neighbourhood. I don't know when I will read it since I'm into English history at the moment, but it's a pleasure to have it anyway. .
.
🤓Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns - I have heard a lot about it, and this is my chance! .
.
🤓Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman - I just love Gaiman's books, and I haven't read this one yet. If I like it, I will definitely get me a better edition.

Review by @kawthereads
* Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë book review *
“It is far better to endure patiently a smart which nobody feels but yourself, than to commit a hasty action whose evil consequences will extend to all connected with you.”
I have been living in 19th century Northern England for the past couple of weeks through this novel; and absolutely loved every second of it.
I am often intimidated by classics, and was by this one as well. But once I started reading I never wanted it to end!
This was not merely a love story as one would expect it to be, this read as a memoir of a strong woman who despite all the hardships and circumstances she’s gone through remains strong and definitely independent.
The book has many feminist themes running throughout it, which is kind of unprecedented due to the time it was written in.
You can practically feel the Gothic atmosphere of the book seeping from it; the scenery, characters and moods running through it all blended together to paint the extraordinary picture that is this book which was a wonderful start to my reading year..
“Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, to absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
5/5 stars ⭐️! #bahrainbooks #bahrainwriters #oldbookbahrain#booksbahrain #bahrainreaders #bookwormbahrain #bahrainbookshop#usedbooksbahrain#secondhandbooks#bahrainspeakers#bahraintoastmasters#bahrainbookaddict#bahrainbookworm#readersclubbahrain#bestbooksbahrain#authorsbahrain#coffeebookbahrain#bahrainteabook#readingbahrain#readbahrain#writebahrain#bookishbahrain#lovebooksbahrain#lovereadingbahrain#bookinstabahrain

So excited that my copy of this arrived yesterday - even better that I managed to pick up a copy secondhand! #risesisterrise #reuse #secondhandbooks

❝ I opened a book and in I strode,
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king,
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter,
And followed their road with its bumps and bends,
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came,
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.❞ Julia Donaldson 📚📖
