I am hesitant to post about this book (which I finished on Saturday) because I feel incredibly nervous that I won't be able to clearly express how much it means to me, but that is how it goes with art that is honest. There are books like these that find you, that slip into your heart and make you that much more open, books that make you trust yourself - or as @brielarson texted me about it today, whom I lent it to right after, "It feels like infinity" 😳❤️ read this book and share it with your sisters--- I want part of our resistance to be sharing necessary, infinite art with each other (hence why I post so much art on here 👻) 👋 #SisterhoodOfTheTravelingBook ❤️💕💐🤗❤️ #TheArgonauts #MaggieNelson ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Today, on what is apparently the bluest day of the year, we're celebrating the brilliantly blue cover for Bluets by Maggie Nelson, designed by @suzanneldean. We're very excited to be publishing Bluets for the first time in the UK this June, and will have early copies in this week #BlueMonday #Bluets #MaggieNelson #TheArgonauts @vintagebooksdesign

"But whatever I am, or have since become, I know now that slipperiness isn't all of it. I know now that a studied evasiveness has its own limitations, its own ways of inhibiting certain forms of happiness and pleasure. The pleasure of abiding. The pleasure of insistence, of persistence. The pleasures of ordinary devotion. The pleasure of recognizing that one may have to undergo the same realizations, write the same notes in the margin, return to the same themes in one's work, relearn the same emotional truths, write the same book over and over again--not because one is stupid or obstinate or incapable of change, but because such revisitations constitute a life."
I have a lot to say about this quote. First, how freeing, as a writer, to realize we might repeatedly return to the same themes and ideas in our work-- something that not only every writer does, but that allows us to evolve and change and grow!!! It's something I'm only just coming to terms with. I'm finding my themes. Second, if you've read Adler's Pitch Dark, doesn't this remind you of the passage that lists "The sins of..." (I will find this quote when I get home and type it out, because it is beautiful!) -- what a wonderful structure! I'm so into it. Third, I agree with the sentiment expressed about slipperiness inhibiting some joys of being defined. I feel that struggling to evade definition took up a lot of my teenage years (and because of it I fit into some very stereotypical image of teenage angst, obviously & ironically) and it was exhausting and futile. Nelson is probably describing a "slippery" identity a little more dignified than my teenage foolishness, but, ya know, I'm only 22 so most of what I connect with is rarely dignified. Finally, just finished the book and I'm already sure I need to revisit it, as I don't think it I understood it completely. If you wrote a review of it on your instagram let me know as I'm interested to read other people's thoughts.

Some recent life-replenishing tools in a photo. Books and @bjork. All things starting with B are good (my dog Bunty however is absent). Prepare for an essay caption... I haven't been able to devote as much time and thought to social media as I normally would for quite some time. The truth is, with all new developments taken into account (university, Summer heartbreak, whatever else applies), I haven't quite been myself mentally. It has taken me a great deal of time to recover from a broken heart (reaching the other side now, however), yet the timing of starting uni in the midst of that was very difficult indeed. On one hand, it's been incredibly exciting- I've never been able to approach groups of people with such ease in all my life before, and form such strong connections. Yet on the other hand, it's been intensely overwhelming; I was silently suffering away in a private battle with which I didn't know whom to turn to. I struggled with new concepts on my modules, began to switch off in lectures and hence fell behind massively. I've often felt frustrated with myself- not being able to reach my full potential and perfect everything I learn; lacking the energy to do so. Many a time I've wanted to post and put a little more conscious thought into my 'monologue' captions as a method of venting, but so many attempts just resulted in me crashing into bed each night, unfulfilled. So I am sorry for my unavailability, the friends who I've forgotten to wish happy birthday to, the messages I've failed to respond. No one deserves to get only a half or a quarter of the 'real me'. I've been trying to get back to the right mindset these last months so I can be a better person. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS: I'm now getting a lot of help from my university student support, things are looking a lot brighter for next semester (and I now know what to expect and how the system works). I hope to start posting on @fatmfanclubscotland and @loveforlowe_ again. And as you can see, during my period of self-punishment and frustration, I've been productive. I'm taking steps to restrengthen my vocabulary and ability to communicate whatever nonsense goes on inside my head by (continued in comments)

My favorite Italian cookies, green tea, and an interesting read to keep me company on this cold rainy day. I've heard a lot of hype about this book so I'm excited to give it a go. Has anyone read it? -Melanie

Le 11 janvier, le livre événement, Les Argonautes de Maggie Nelson. En attendant, lisez une partie rouge traduit par Julia Deck. #lesargonautes #maggienelson #editionsdusoussol #litteraturedureel #bookstagram #livre #InstaBook #unepartierouge #theargonauts #theredparts

I've been (re)reading these beauties the last couple of weeks. 💭☕🌙
Johnson's Train Dreams was a complete surprise, it reminded me a lot of Goethe's Die Leiden des jungen Werther (The Sorrows of Young Werther, is that the translation?). Definitely one of those texts that will stay with me for years, although I did not really relate to the subject matter as I clearly was not the intended audience. But I nevertheless appreciate his writing and his protagonist, as I rarely find characters that are so clearly not classifiable as hero or anti-hero but rather average, everyday personalities. That's really refreshing. I also was blown away by his prose.
I especially revisited the passages about queer family making in The Argonauts, which makes me want to read so much more on the subject.
Williams's work I am partially reading for my thesis, and even though it's from the 90's it somewhat reads like a commentary on current US politics. Definitely worth it.
Hope you all have a wonderful day 💕💖

Neues Buch, völlig überraschend in meine Hände gefallen. Sowas muss man doch ausnutzen. ☺ Ich kann also den Feierabend kaum erwarten... Ich war diedes Jahr ja nicht ganz so erfolgreich mit dem "Spaß"-Lesen, weil es soviel Uni-/Projekt-/Diss-Mäßiges zu lesen und zu lernen gab. Falls es euch interessiert, mein neuester Beitrag zu meinem Lesejahr 2017 wäre jetzt online. 📚 Schaut vorbei unter https://labyrinthbewohner.wordpress.com/2017/12/05/mein-buecherjahr-2017/ !

Ich bin schon sehr auf die #Argonauten gespannt. 😀
Habt eine schöne Woche und zieht euch warm an! Langsam wird es ja richtig frostig!

“I told you I wanted to live in a world in which the antidote to shame is not honor, but honesty.” When I consider what this would look like in practice, I am a little intimidated by the immense vulnerability that it would require. .

Because some books are meant to be read more than once to be fully understood and appreciated.

39. The Argonauts: Maggie Nelson's writing is hard to define but then so is she. It's this inimitability that makes her as a person so interesting and her writing so illuminating. The Argonauts is a memoir of sorts, more academic in nature than your average but then also way more personal than most. It's an interrogation into gender, identity, motherhood, queer families, love, affection, marriage and more. What I like best about Nelson is how she breaks down boring binaries that boring people assume define modern life: female/male, gay/straight, conservative/radical etc. She simultaneously shows us that things are more nuanced than that while also reminding us that we are all bound up in the same narrative of birth, love and death (this is a love story above all else I believe). This was a timely book to read in the lead up to the same-sex marriage vote (although Nelson enlightened me on how even the term 'same-sex' is exclusive and reductive) and I think everyone should at least read an article by this woman. I saw a quote by Ray Bradbury earlier this week about how we need to read widely across all religions and art forms, to gather all the cross-references we can get because we never know when our head is going to use this fuel, this food for its purposes. But mostly we need to read to understand and to empathise right? And golly this country could do with a bit more of both those things right now. Ok, rant over, this was a great book.

November wrap-up! These are the books I read in november. Not as many as I had hoped, but still a few good ones. Most of these books I've reviewed and you can find them on my blog!

Rereading Maggie Nelson's THE ARGONAUTS for a paper I owe from a previous semester. This is my third time through, and I think I take a photo every time I get to this passage. #maggienelson #theargonauts #joy

“Perhaps it’s the word radical that needs rethinking. But what could we angle ourselves toward instead, or in addition? Openness? Is that good enough, strong enough? You’re the only one who knows when you’re using things to protect yourself and keep your ego together and when you’re opening and letting things fall apart, letting the world come as it is—working with it rather than struggling against it. You’re the only one who knows. And the thing is, even you don’t always know.” •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I haven’t posted in ages but after finishing this latest book (the most feminist thing I’ve read in months) I decided to revive this insta. I can’t say enough good things about this book. It’s hard to describe - undercurrents of memoir, queer theory, philosophy, history, feminist literary criticism & more run through this piece. Like most people I know who’ve read this, I found Maggie Nelson’s thoughts on queer maternity (slash feminist motherhood in general) most salient/provocative. It’s super weird to read something and realize you’ve literally never encountered that specific situation or experience represented in literature before (even though they may relate to things in your life). That happened a lot with this book. And thanks to @hborghi for the recommendation! #theargonauts #maggienelson #feministbookworm #feministreads #bookstagram #bookgram #lgbtreads #lgbtqbooks #feministliterature #feministlibrary #bookworm

"The Argonauts" had been nothing if not an engaging read, more informative and emersive than most of my academic texts on similar topics #theargonauts #bookquotes

Mmmmm..... lunchtime self care practice. Removed myself from the office. Found an air conditioned corner somewhere cute. Feeding mind and body and creative coursings. THIS BOOK by Maggie Nelson is totally realigning. In the first 80 pages I’m all infused with challenging questions and fascinating perspective. #gender #sexuality #feminist #queerlit #theargonauts #writingletterstoyourself #icedlongblack #escapism #selflove

Because I'm not very bright, my reading life is divided into smart books that I read when I have to and pleasure books that I read when I want to. This though? This smart book pleased me. *

@librerialondon reminded me how much I enjoyed this book by #MaggieNelson 🌟 “I feel I can give you everything without giving myself away, I whispered in your basement bed. If one does one's solitude right, this is the prize.” • •

Today we hit the library book sale for real... it was bag day and though there wasn’t much in the way of fiction, I did find a bunch of true crime and some other goodies all for a grand total of $6! It was a little overwhelming with the amount of people swarming the books, but check out my story for my haul!
In the spirit of my haul, I decided to go true crime for my recommendation. Maggie Nelson’s THE RED PARTS is a true crime/memoir about her aunt’s murder and it is simply phenomenal. She brings a very human and deeply personal touch to this often clinical or procedural genre and her writing, of course, is fabulous. As a companion, there is her poetry collection, JANE: A MURDER, also about her aunt, but written before her family knew what really happened.
If you happened to read THE FACT OF A BODY that came out earlier this year, it reminded me a lot of Nelson’s book. I recommend them both for true crime aficionados!
After a tiring afternoon at the dog park, we are off to a haunted corn maze—wish me luck!

Today was THE BEST day! I got to hang out with @_ecmoore_ and show her around Oly. Of course we went book shopping but we did lots of other fun things like eat burritos as big as our heads and drink coffee and buy the cutest cards. I love when bookstagram friends become real life friends! This community is so great. Also Emily is a gem and I’m so glad we got to meet.
