The amount of effort required to snap a photo with this creature is insane πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ I'm reading a really great book at the moment! 'The Child' by Fiona Barton. I loved her book 'The Widow' and so far this new one is just as good! πŸŒ₯

Also, some of you may be wondering why I've started posting a few non-bookish photos. There are 2 reasons. The first is that I'm getting a kindle soon, and right now am doing a lot of reading on my iPad and I don't like photographing these. The second is that exclusively posting bookish photos has actually been turning me off reading for quite some time now, the pressure to read from running an exclusive bookstagram has actually been making problems with my reading progress and has turned reading, something I love and am very passionate about, into something that felt like a chore. I will still be posting bookish photos, but from here on out this account will not be 'exclusively' bookish, I'll also be sharing photos of my adventures, day to day life, family, and pets. Even just over the last week I have noticed a massive increase in my reading enjoyment after removing the pressure of ONLY posting bookish photos, and I hope you guys can understand. Hopefully you like these, if not then I guess just unfollow haha. Happy reading to you all and hope you're having a great day/night! 😘
