'And that's Smith of Hufflepuff with the Quaffle,' said a dreamy voice, echoing over the grounds. 'He did the commentary last time, of course, and Ginny Weasley flew into him, I think probably on purpose, it looked like it. Smith was being quite rude about Gryffindor, I expect he regrets that now he's playing them - oh, look, he's lost the Quaffle, Ginny took it from him, I do like her, she's very nice…' .

Luna is my favorite Qudditch commentator and Quidditch is one of my top favorite parts of Harry Potter. Some of my favorite scenes involve being on the pitch. .

Last week I was sent a copy of “Harry Potter Quidditch: Magical Film Projections” from @Candlewickpress and we’ve had a blast using it. It’s seriously a fun and cool book. Inside are velum scenes from Quidditch that you shine a light through, and it projects the picture onto the wall or the ceiling. It works really well too. (We had better luck using cellphone flashlights than our regular flashlight. Our regular flashlight projected rings of light that made it hard to see the picture. You’ll have to experiment with your light source to find the one that works best for you.) .
🦁
I’ll throw some pictures of the inside on my IG stories today and try to take some of the projections tonight (you may have already seen them when I did them last week though.) .
🦁
I feel like this is also an appropriate post to celebrate my long awaited Quidditch Keeper Ron Funko, which I have been patiently waiting for FOREVER. (it releases in January, but I’m preordering today.) I’m not a funko collector, but Quidditch Ron is a must-have for me. .
🦁
What position would you want to play on a Quidditch team? I think I’d enjoy the challenge of a seeker or bludger, but I think I would like being a chaser best of all.

«L’avevamo sempre addosso, la Luna, smisurata: quand’era il plenilunio - notti chiare come il giorno, ma d’una luce color burro - pareva che ci schiacciasse; quand’era la luna nuova rotolava per il cielo come un nero ombrello portato dal vento; e a luna crescente veniva avanti a corna così basse che pareva lì lì per infilzare la cresta di un promontorio e restarci ancorata»

Italo Calvino, Le Cosmicomiche

Today is going to be a long one so in order to not get burned out I'm making sure to take as many mini breaks as I can. The aftermath of last night's snow fall is still white and beautiful so I plan of taking a quick walk in the park, coffee with a childhood friend I haven't seen in months, a couple reading breaks and a few breathing exercises. Hopefully I'll end my night with a proper dinner of veggies and rice and a Sense8 rewatch. How do you guys deal with a long day? What do you do to make sure you don't burn out? Happy Tuesday lovelies, I hope you're having a great day 💕 #SelfCare #onthetable #morningslikethese #tardis #huffpostgram #culturetripbooks

Hello my loves!
I'm done with this day...all I wanna do is drink a tea and to curl myself up into a ball😩I really hate these kinda days...why are people so unfriendly?! I really don't understand it. Is it so hard to say "please", "thank you"? Or is it difficult to help someone else? I don't think so😶Sorry for this random complaining but I had to write it down. Hope that's okay! However I hope you have a better day.

Hallo ihr lieben!
Nein heute kein "schönen" trallala...ich will nur noch Tee trinken und mich in einer Ecke zum Ball rollen😩Ich hasse solche Tage! Wirklich ist es so schwer freundlich zu sein? Wo ist das Problem "Danke" und "bitte" zu sagen. Oder Gott bewahre jemand anderem zu helfen, wenn man sieht das der andere etwas nicht alleine schafft?! Ich finde das sollte auch oder gerade in der Weihnachtszeit doch möglich sein?😶Aber nein anstatt wird man für dumm verkauft und auch noch von der Seite blöd angemacht. Ich mutiere dann ja zum Kampfzwerg aber irgendwann hat man dafür auch keine Kraft mehr.🤦🏼‍♀️Sorry für das ganze beschweren aber ich musste das einfach mal loswerden! Ich hoffe ihr hattet einen besseren Tag bis jetzt! #bookblogger #bookster #bookflatlay #becauseofreading #readers

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“This part I will do alone, leaving you behind. Don’t follow. I’m well beyond you now, and traveling very fast.” #JeffVanderMeer / Annihilation
——————————
I finished this entire trilogy in the span of two days. I read a lot but rarely do I find a book (or books) so engrossing that I gain an almost compulsive need to finish it. The Southern Reach trilogy is some odd, prolonged ghost story. It’s a mystery at its core, a psychological thriller, a skewed look at life and reality, nature and human corruption. It’s intricately woven, strikingly detailed and beautifully written. This is a series that asks a lot of the reader: to be patient, to remember subtleties, to feel satisfied even when the answers are unsatisfying. Honestly, the sheer scope of this trilogy and VanderMeer’s effortless execution of multiple perspectives, tenses and story lines is awe inspiring. My one piece of advice for reading this series is to read them all. Don’t give up in the middle. Don’t take the first at face value. Read them all, and enjoy! Thanks to my hermano @mwcrowley for the killer recommendation and to @fsgbooks for continuing to enable my dangerous book addiction.

#Respire by #AnneSophieBrasme
4/5⭐️
—
Obsession is a theme that I'm fascinated with in literature. A lot of my favorite books deal with obsessive narrators, such as The Secret History (big surprise here) (says absolutely nobody) The Virgin Suicides or The Girls. I could even mention The Dumb House, The Collector or Lolita—although you can't really empathize with these narrators, they remain fascinating and you can't deny that obsession lies at the very core of their perversions.
All of that to say that one of my last reads definitely belongs to that genre: Respire (or Breathe in English) by Anne-Sophie Brasme. First of all, can I pat myself on the back for finally reading in French? Thank you, thank you. *tips hat* Secondly, let me tell you a few things about it. Respire tells the story of Charlène, a young woman who's been in prison for the last two years for murder. Like a lot of the books that I have mentioned in the beginning, Charlène tells us about her early life, her rather sad and dull chilhood and her difficult teenage years. But the real story begins when she reminisces about meeting Sarah, the magnetic new girl at her school who then becomes her best friend. And so begins a friendship that will turn unhealthy, sour and well, obsessive. Obviously, we readers already know how it ends —murder— but the real mystery lies in how Charlène was pushed to it.
A more twisted and destructive Bonjour Tristesse—forgive me for the easy comparison, Brasme wrote her novel when she was only 17. If you like tales of obsession and how far it can push us to do terrible things, I'd highly recommend this book.

'She found her protector warming his hands in front of a leaping fire. He was dressed in a coat of blue superfine, which more experienced eyes than Miss Trent's would have recognised as coming from the hands of a master.'
- Georgette Heyer, Snowdrift

Bookish Advent Day 12! 'Snowdrift' is a collection of short stories by Georgette Heyer that would make perfect reading for Boxing Day, when you have time to put your feet up with a book and enjoy the leftovers. Only two are set at Christmas time, but that doesn't stop making these stories great holiday reads for any Heyer fan. They're gentle Regency romances that have rather similar plots (lots of foiled elopements to Gretna Green and impeccably dressed heroes), but are plenty of fun.

Aggiornamento a casaccio di queste giornate folli:
• bevo litri di spremute perché a) non vorrei beccarmi un raffreddore b) devo svuotare il frigorifero dato che tra 4 giorni si vola finalmente a Casa;
• io e il mio coinquilino abbiamo passato due notti con il Nes in balia di giochi pixellati e attacchi alieni;
• poi i cactus, ma quelli ci sono sempre in giro;
• in ultimo, la lettura di quel libro meraviglioso e fantasmagorico di #4321 di #PaulAuster che non so per quale motivo non è rientrato nella classifica de @la_lettura perché per me è il #librodel2017.

Ho dimenticato di parlarvi dello studio ma quello è fermo o è talmente tanto che boh, scappo nelle Antille.

Kort og godt! Akkurat nå leser jeg "I de dager... 24 julefortellinger" . Passer godt med en liten historie til frokost hver dag. Fortellingene er korte og til ettertanke.

✍ Review: #bookandcornerreviews
•
This is a modern African literature presenting the ideological contestation of the traditional and modern ideas within the time frame of pre and post-colonial life in Nigeria. The style of writing is a conscious blend of his native language and English. Achebe has received criticism for choosing English as a medium to voice the adversities of people instead of their native language. However, in anticipation of an expansive reader base, he has written the book in English but has kept some of the local words as it is making sure that his native language doesn’t fall victim of globalisation. The major portion of the story dealt with a constant tussle between the old and the new, modernism and traditionalism. In the beginning, the novel had shed light on the Nigerian ways of doing things with storytelling being a prominent part of their culture. The invasion of white missionaries and colonial government not only disintegrated the Igbo society but also imposed English language attacking the customs of a collapsible culture. This had a deeper impact on the lives of native communities as they had to let go of their values and culture system which led to a systematic destruction of individual identities.
•
Half of the time  I was cringing away from the violence and killings. Often, I found myself quickly turning the pages to avoid reading the Okonkwo’s beating his women and children and killing which is why this remains a 3 star for me. I wouldn’t say it is a must read but this book is a good reminder of the blessings and privileges we tend to ignore sometimes.

I was making a list of my best reads of 2017 & realised how difficult it is to select just a few of them😆

Though I'm sure about a few titles like 'Anna Karenina' & 'The Mayor of Casterbridge', I'm going to take some time to contemplate over the list, and will be sharing it around the end of the month.
.

And among other things, things have taken a crucial turn in 'A Tale of Two Cities'. Going to wrap it up in a day or two, ah it has already taken a lot of time😅
.
.
By the way, what's your favourite/best read of 2017?

#DecemberBookRide Dec 13- Books that got your pockets *almost* empty.
❄
I am religiously a paperback person for so many weird reasons(won't even start on that)🙈.
I search beautiful hardcover editions every now and then, but usually end up picking their paperbacks, one, so that I don't end up my pocket money before the month ends, 'cause then I will be sulking that I can't buy more books where I would have already bought a dozen! None of us want a book buying ban now, do we? 😂
Two, I want to buy those beautiful editions without going on a guilt trip! Hence I decide to wait all the time! And these are just few of those weird reasons.
❄
These amazing books were the courtesy of @tbb_box (September month). After booking my first subscription box, I couldn't avoid the guilt trip, but these books were so good(trust me I want to use a better adjective here, to explain how much I loved them), that it was all worth it.❤

“A fashionable milieu is one in which each person’s opinion is made up of everyone else’s opinions. Does each opinion run counter to everyone else’s? Then it is a literary milieu.”- Marcel Proust, Pleasures and Days
Good morning bookworms 🌻 For a long time I’ve wanted to read Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time series, but never got around to it. The other day I found this on the sale table at the bookshop and I had to take it! This is Proust at the beginning of his writing career; a collection of short stories and poems completed before he turned twenty-two. I can’t wait to get around to reading it! Have you read anything by Proust? I’d love to know your thoughts.

“A fashionable milieu is one in which each person’s opinion is made up of everyone else’s opinions. Does each opinion run counter to everyone else’s? Then it is a literary milieu.”- Marcel Proust, Pleasures and Days Good morning bookworms 🌻 For a long time I’ve wanted to read Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time series, but never got around to it. The other day I found this on the sale table at the bookshop and I had to take it! This is Proust at the beginning of his writing career; a collection of short stories and poems completed before he turned twenty-two. I can’t wait to get around to reading it! Have you read anything by Proust? I’d love to know your thoughts. #books  #reading  #bookish  #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #bookfeaturepage  #vscobooks  #vsco  #vscoreads  #lovereading  #bookphotography  #quotes  #marcelproust  #fiction  #paperbacklove  #almaclassics  #bibliophile  #bookworm  #bookclubcollective  #literary  #lifestyle  #booksandcoffee  #met_createchange  #thefinchbook  #bookflatlay  #igbooks  #culturetripbooks  #readersofinstagram  #booksofinstagram 
Judul: Pasung Jiwa
Penulis: Okky Madasari

Seperti pada buku-buku sebelumnya, pada buku “Pasung Jiwa” ini pun Okky Madasari masih mengangkat tema tentang pergulatan manusia dalam memperoleh kebebasan sejati dan perlawanan atas ketidakadilan. Itulah mengapa  buku ini menarik untuk dibaca, karena dapat membangkitkan semangat dan rasa empati.
Ada dua tokoh utama dalam buku ini, yaitu Sasana (Sasa) dan Jaka Wani (Cak Jek).
.
Cerita dimulai dengan pengenalan tokoh Sasana yang dipaksa bermain piano sejak kecil untuk memenuhi obsesi orang tuanya yang menyukai piano dan musik klasik. Sementara Sasana menyukai musik dangdut yang dianggap sebagai musik-nya orang mabuk dan tidak pernah sekolah oleh kedua orang tuanya. Disinilah Sasana merasa terperangkap.
.
.
“Seluruh hidupku adalah perangkap. Tubuh adalah perangkap pertamaku. Lalu orangtua, dan semua orang yang kukenal. Kemudian segala hal yang kuketahui serta segala sesuatu yang kulakukan.”
.
Saat masa kuliah di Malang, Jaka Wani merubah Sasana menjadi Sasa, penyanyi dangdut dengan bedak dan gincu tebal yang terkenal dengan goyangannya.

Jaka Wani (Cak Jek), sosok yang tergila-gila dengan seni namun terjebak dalam kemiskinan, dan nasib membuatnya menjadi seorang buruh pabrik di Batam. Hidup seperti robot, kerja dari senin sampai jumat, dari pagi sampai sore. Namun bahkan gajinya tidak cukup untuk membeli barang yang dibuat oleh tangannya sendiri di pabrik tersebut. .

Novel ini syarat akan protes dan mengungkapkan suara-suara orang yang merasa jiwanya terpasung. Lewat kisah beberapa tokoh, penulis juga mencoba mengungkapkan ketidakadilan yang mereka terima baik yang dilakukan oleh aparat negara, atasan, maupun orang-orang yang mengatasnamakan agama. Kisah Marsinah seorang buruh yang berjuang melawan ketidakadilan namun harus membayar perjuangannya dengan nyawanya juga sedikit diangkat dalam buku ini.

Membaca buku ini membuka mata saya untuk mengerti lebih dalam pergulatan batin banyak orang yang kehilangan kebebasan, diperlakukan tidak adil, namun tidak bisa melawan karena terpasung rasa takut, takut akan pandangan agama, sistem sosial, ekonomi, dan terlebih politik. #AyoMenulis

Judul Buku : Milea, Suara dari Dilan

Penulis : Pidi Baiq @pidibaiq

Novel “Milea, Suara dari Dilan” karya Pidi Baiq ini merupakan seri ketiga dari kedua novel sebelumya, yaitu “Dilan, dia adalah Dilanku tahun 1990” dan “Dilan, dia adalah Dilanku tahun 1991”. Novel ini menceritakan kisah yang sama, hanya saja jika kedua buku sebelumya kisah diceritakan dari sudut pandang Milea, maka novel Milea berkisah dari sudut pandang Dilan. Dan ada penambahan kisah-kisah yang tidak diceritakan Milea pada novel sebelumya.

Bagian awal novel ini menceritakan secara singkat kehidupan Dilan kecil dan keluarganya. Kisah selanjutnya lebih banyak membahas cerita masa remaja Dilan, dan saat-saat dia melakukan pendekatan dengan Milea, hingga masa-masa pacaran sampai akhirnya putus. Dan bertemu kembali saat semuanya sudah tidak bisa kembali seperti dulu.

Buku ini menjawab pertanyaan saya, dan mungkin juga pertanyaan sebagian besar pembela Milea, kemana dan apa yang dilakukan Dilan setelah putus dari Milea? Mengapa sepertinya Dilan tidak pernah berusaha mencari Milea, malah terus menjauh. Pertanyaan-pertanyaan tersebut terjawab pada novel ini.

Ada sebuah kata-kata Dilan yang saya suka dalam buku ini, yaitu saat ia bertemu dengan wanita yang orang sebut pelacur, “Bagiku, jika aku tidak bisa membantu mereka untuk keluar dari itu, aku akan memilih untuk diam, itu lebih baik daripada bersikap mencemooh dan menghinanya.” Awalnya saya kurang tertarik tertarik dengan novel-novel berisi kisah percintaan anak SMA seperti ini. Satu-satunya alasan saya akhirnya membaca novel ini adalah ingin mencari tahu bagaimana seorang Pidi Baiq yang awalnya lebih saya kenal sebagai anggota band The Panasdalam dengan lirik-lirik nyleneh, kemudian menulis novel yang dapat membius pembacanya. Dan akhirnya sayapun terpesona dengan gaya penulisannya yang sederhana, ringan, mudah dibaca oleh siapapun. Namun setiap untaian dan pemilihan katanya dapat membuka lebar-lebar ruang imajinasi pembacanya. Saya pun tanpa sadar kembali mengingat-ingat masa sekolah dulu dan ingin sekali menuliskannya meski hanya dalam blog. #AyoMenulis

"The devil's in the coincidence." I like books that seem to project a certain expectation then smashes them, along with your heart, to bits. Tremblay writes kids very well and one can't help but feel for these lost boys. As with A Head Full of Ghosts, Tremblay has some interesting narrative style choices, which worked to service the story in the end. The last 50 pages gutted me. @sadie_reads_them_all oh the heartache!

💟 Second post of the day! I’m finally starting to get back into the swing of things. And it’s been beautiful here the past few weeks so picture-taking has been super easy!

💟 Here’s a picture of one of my favourite Funko’s ever, badass Prisoner of Azkaban Hermione. I used to role play as Hermione when I was, like, six or seven years old. I loved her.
.
💟 Which is an obvious reason I *had* to include a Funko of Hermione in my 1K Follower Giveaway thats coming up! I’m still picking up a few pieces here and there, but I already have three books, including one signed by Leigh Bardugo!
.
💟 The boyfriend and I are going to see the Disaster Artist today! I’m really excited, I saw the trailer the day it dropped, and I’m a huge fan of Seth Roger* and Kelly Oxford. What was the last movie you saw?
*damn autocorrect, I KNOW I typed Rogen!!

🌻R&B (slow paced book) - Eldest by Chris Pailini 😐
🌻Dicso (book with a flashy cover) - ACOTAR by Sarah J Mass.
🌻Emo (a book no one liked but you loved) - no one else in my life likes Twilight but it still holds a special place in my bookish heart 😂💕.

"We are all bound together in the web of life, and so we are never parted. Attachment is a very human idea."
She smiled at him and unlaced their fingers to ruffle hers through his hair. "I love when you talk about humans as if you're not one."
He laughed. "I'm at least part bird."

I did a bit of a detour. This collection of short stories is just calling to me. I read the first story and ohmygod, the reader in me who loves chance encounters, unexpected twists of fate, & flawed characters is crying tears of joy. Now I need more Alice Munro in my life. #CanLit

I have to admit that I’m not always as good at picking up LGBTQ+ reads as I’d like. Well, nothing that I would class as substantially so anyway. There are books that skim the surface (ie generic gay characters who always turn up in awful YA books) but I don’t always feel like it counts. These two classics, though, caused quite a stir in their day with references to lesbian relationships.

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

I needed a short nonfiction rest from the wild, weird, wonderful world of Murakami's fiction and this quiet little book was the perfect interlude.
.
Written by Chickasaw poet Linda Hogan, Dwellings is 17 meditations (or essays, if you will) on our relationship with the natural world around us. She writes of air and wind, water and mud, creatures like bats and snakes, wolves and eagles... Using her own tribe's history with the land and all its inhabitants, she turns a critical eye towards modern society. We are both a part of nature and apart from nature.
.
I enjoyed her spare and unflinching writing and her storytelling. She moved easily among disparate topics, speaking of science in one breath and ancient traditions in the next, all the while wrapping them in her own experiences. A bit from the book itself:
.
"Here, there is a feel for the mystery of our being in all ways, in earth and water. It is a feel for the same mystery that sends scientists to search for the beginning of the universe. We seek our origins as much as we seek our destinies."
.
"And we desire to see the world intact, to step outside our emptiness and remember the strong currents that pass between humans and the rest of nature, currents that are the felt voice of land, heard in the cells of the body."

"It is the same magnetic call that, since before human history, has brought the sea turtles to the beaches of Celestun. The slow blood of the turtles hears it, turtles who have not been here since the original breaking of the egg that held them, who ran toward an ocean they did not know, who have lived their lives in the sea then felt the call of land in deep memory and so return to a place unseen. Forever, it seems, they have been swimming through blue waters in order to return, to lay their eggs in sun-warmed sand, and go back to the clear blue-green waters of their mothers in ancient journeys of creation and rituals of return."

I needed a short nonfiction rest from the wild, weird, wonderful world of Murakami's fiction and this quiet little book was the perfect interlude. . Written by Chickasaw poet Linda Hogan, Dwellings is 17 meditations (or essays, if you will) on our relationship with the natural world around us. She writes of air and wind, water and mud, creatures like bats and snakes, wolves and eagles... Using her own tribe's history with the land and all its inhabitants, she turns a critical eye towards modern society. We are both a part of nature and apart from nature. . I enjoyed her spare and unflinching writing and her storytelling. She moved easily among disparate topics, speaking of science in one breath and ancient traditions in the next, all the while wrapping them in her own experiences. A bit from the book itself: . "Here, there is a feel for the mystery of our being in all ways, in earth and water. It is a feel for the same mystery that sends scientists to search for the beginning of the universe. We seek our origins as much as we seek our destinies." . "And we desire to see the world intact, to step outside our emptiness and remember the strong currents that pass between humans and the rest of nature, currents that are the felt voice of land, heard in the cells of the body." . "It is the same magnetic call that, since before human history, has brought the sea turtles to the beaches of Celestun. The slow blood of the turtles hears it, turtles who have not been here since the original breaking of the egg that held them, who ran toward an ocean they did not know, who have lived their lives in the sea then felt the call of land in deep memory and so return to a place unseen. Forever, it seems, they have been swimming through blue waters in order to return, to lay their eggs in sun-warmed sand, and go back to the clear blue-green waters of their mothers in ancient journeys of creation and rituals of return." . #lindahogan  #nonfiction  #bookflatlay  #booksofinstagram  #bibliophile  #bookstagram  #reading  #booklove  #instareads  #nature  #nativeamerican  #igreads  #dwellings

My headache remedy 🙄 good book , hot chocolate and bed. But for my Polish gang here, this is an awesome fantasy book that has Polish named characters like Agnieszka or Kasia... The author is a first generation American raised on Polish fairy tales.. Teraz widze ze w Polsce ta ksiazka nazywa sie ‘Wybrana’ Polecam!

When you only have a few hours before you have to leave for your flight and you really should be cleaning and packing and finishing up work stuff, but instead you light a candle, make some tea and start watching Gilmore Girls, and you know it’s a bad decision, but sometimes it feels so good to be bad, and you’ll have to remind your future self of that because you know your future self is going to be cursing your irresponsible, hedonistic former self when you’ve only got 30 minutes to complete an hour’s worth of tasks, but hey, as long as you don’t accidentally pack a cat it should all be okay 🤷‍♀️.

Okay, I’m back. So, yeah. I’m leaving on a trip and it’s pretty much guaranteed that I’ll be running late, and I’ve come to accept that about myself, and I just wanted to pop in to say this @spireside candle has been described as “Christmas in a jar” and I wholeheartedly agree because it definitely smells like Christmas trees 🎄.

Have you ever thought about how weird it is that so many of our childhood stories prominently feature kissing? I mean, basically all dairy stories demand some kind of kiss take place. We were all raised to believe true love’s kiss is the solution to most problems. Is there any need or am I just a huge cynic?

'And that's Smith of Hufflepuff with the Quaffle,' said a dreamy voice, echoing over the grounds. 'He did the commentary last time, of course, and Ginny Weasley flew into him, I think probably on purpose, it looked like it. Smith was being quite rude about Gryffindor, I expect he regrets that now he's playing them - oh, look, he's lost the Quaffle, Ginny took it from him, I do like her, she's very nice…' .
🦁
Luna is my favorite Qudditch commentator and Quidditch is one of my top favorite parts of Harry Potter. Some of my favorite scenes involve being on the pitch. .
🦁
Last week I was sent a copy of “Harry Potter Quidditch: Magical Film Projections” from @Candlewickpress and we’ve had a blast using it. It’s seriously a fun and cool book. Inside are velum scenes from Quidditch that you shine a light through, and it projects the picture onto the wall or the ceiling. It works really well too. (We had better luck using cellphone flashlights than our regular flashlight. Our regular flashlight projected rings of light that made it hard to see the picture. You’ll have to experiment with your light source to find the one that works best for you.) .
🦁
I’ll throw some pictures of the inside on my IG stories today and try to take some of the projections tonight (you may have already seen them when I did them last week though.) .
🦁
I feel like this is also an appropriate post to celebrate my long awaited Quidditch Keeper Ron Funko, which I have been patiently waiting for FOREVER. (it releases in January, but I’m preordering today.) I’m not a funko collector, but Quidditch Ron is a must-have for me. .
🦁
What position would you want to play on a Quidditch team? I think I’d enjoy the challenge of a seeker or bludger, but I think I would like being a chaser best of all.

"L'anno scorso ho riletto Guerra e pace trasversalmente, cioè seguendo soltanto le vicende di Pierre Bezuchov, proprio come se fosse un amico con cui avevo deciso di passare una settimana, e questo breve soggiorno mi ha confermato che Pierre Bezuchov è senza dubbio uno dei miei due o tre migliori amici, qualcuno a cui vorrò bene tutta la vita, che sarò sempre felice di ritrovare a intervalli regolari per confrontare le nostre vite, vedere a che punto siamo."

Question: what Middle Earth race would you probably be?
I’d love to say I’d be a great warrior from Rohan but in reality I’d most likely be a Hobbit. I’m short, a bit lazy, and love to eat. I’d definitely fit in at the Shire.

Today is going to be a long one so in order to not get burned out I'm making sure to take as many mini breaks as I can. The aftermath of last night's snow fall is still white and beautiful so I plan of taking a quick walk in the park, coffee with a childhood friend I haven't seen in months, a couple reading breaks and a few breathing exercises. Hopefully I'll end my night with a proper dinner of veggies and rice and a Sense8 rewatch. How do you guys deal with a long day? What do you do to make sure you don't burn out? Happy Tuesday lovelies, I hope you're having a great day 💕 #SelfCare #onthetable #morningslikethese #tardis #huffpostgram #culturetripbooks

It seems like it was only yesterday when @tillanddill released their zodiac sign collection. And now, there's only one sign left to complete it! How crazy is that?! Anyway, here's the hottie #Sagittarius design which is now available as bookmark, postcard and button pin. 😊 You can use my code "kath10" for discount. 😉 I'm excited for Capricorn because it's my sign (and I've been waiting for it since the beginning of 2017 😂) so I have high expectations, Demi and Lily. Haha. Kidding! 😚💕 #tillanddill

چون می روی بی‌من مرو ای جان جان بی‌تن مرو
وز چشم من بیرون مشو ای شعله تابان من
هفت آسمان را بردرم وز هفت دریا بگذرم
چون دلبرانه بنگری در جان سرگردان من
تا آمدی اندر برم شد کفر و ایمان چاکرم
ای دیدن تو دین من وی روی تو ایمان من
بی‌پا و سر کردی مرا بی‌خواب و خور کردی مرا
سرمست و خندان اندرآ ای یوسف کنعان من
از لطف تو چو جان شدم وز خویشتن پنهان شدم
ای هست تو پنهان شده در هستی پنهان من

Happy Tuesday! I spent Sunday wrapping some gifts & writing a few more cards to post out. These two are now ready to go. How are you getting on with your shopping? Still a few things left to buy? Not started yet...? 😂 I'm almost there but struggling to come up with ideas for the remaining gifts I need to get. I'm not quite in the Christmas spirit this year, hopefully it will click soon. What's your favourite gift you've received for Christmas?

This wonderful card came from one of my friends - she made it herself. I love to get snail mail, even more when it's lovingly crafted.

It snowed yesterday and a bit this morning, but I’m not ready for the snow! I miss late Summer and Fall when I could walk around without my puffy coat and when I didn’t have to clean snow off my car. The bright side to Winter’s unwelcome entrance is that I can lie around the house reading books like this short story collection without feeling like I should be outside enjoying the warm weather. Recommended to me by @caecilia_saori .
She always has great photos and thought provoking captions. One of my favorite book instagrammers for sure ❤️.

Кто всё ещё пытается словить хотя бы немного новогоднего настроения,но безуспешно,тот я!🙋🏼‍♀️🙍🏼‍♀️

⠀ 
С книгами та же проблема — читаю то ужасы,то научную фантастику и читать про Новый Год и Рождество даже и не тянет...Касаемо фильмов/сериалов —мыслями я в киновселенных «Оно», «Очень странные дела», «Звёздные войны»,и на счету всего один просмотренный фильм с рождественской тематикой...поэтому праздничная атмосфера есть только на фотографиях инстаграма,такие вот пироги.😅😆
⠀ 
А у вас как с новогодней атмосферой?Небось и снег выпал,и ёлку нарядить успели??😒😔И самое главное— что сейчас читаете и связан ли сюжет с приближающимися праздниками?

Мне интересно, есть среди вас любители читать? я не представляю свою жизнь без трех вещей: музыки, рисования и книг📚 Летом, благодаря сестре @alyonasantulip , я увлеклась чтением о вампирах😈 "Дракулу" я вообще прочитала не одного автора.  Если сравнивать Брема Стокера и Графа Олшеври, то второй вариант мне больше понравился - там сюжет интереснее и мистики поболее😈
А какая ваша любимая книга?

Hello Lovelies!
.
How are you doing?
Time is running fast, it’s Tuesday again what means #booksandhotdrinkstuesday!
Today’s theme is: winter-ish book covers ❄️
.
These are the most winter-ish covers I could find on my shelves (apart from the Christmas covers what I’m saving for next week).
Which are your favourite winter-ish book covers?
.
.
.
Have a lovely evening!
.
.
.
Ps, don’t forget to check out my lovely friend Katha’s account @katha_logisch, who created this fun weekly tag, to see her beautiful pictures.

I still haven’t found a Poe story I like more than The Cask of Amontillado, to be honest 🤷🏻‍♀️

Do you like Poe? Any obscure stories of his you think I’d appreciate?

“Allow the world to vanish when you go into it. To listen is to search for new opportunities, to seek fresh challenges. The most important book you can read is the one about yourself. It is open.”
—Erling Kagge, Silence: In the Age of Noise

First off, thank you to @pantheonbooks for sending me this book. It’s a beautiful, peaceful book that focuses on taking the time to enjoy silence. It’s less about noise—or the absence of noise—and more about inner peace and using silence to find it. I loved the short chapters that gave me a chance to pause and meditate on what I just read—and listen as I was doing it. And the ending was perfect! Highly recommended! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a particularly loud time of year. I love the Christmas music and the laughter. But don’t forget that sometimes we need the silence too. Where do you go when you need silence?

.

1.	Скільки книжок налічує ваша бібліотека?
На даний час 68. Довгий час читала тільки електронні.
2.	Скільки не прочитаних книг?
21. Мда. Є чим занятись.
3.	Скільки книг читаєте за місяць?
Рекорди не б’ю. Приблизно 3-4. А якщо це коротенькі то можна і 5-6.
4.	Скільки годин в день виділяєте на читання ?
Звісно, залежить від книги. Якщо дуже цікава так, що не відірвеш , то хоч цілий день (якщо є час), а взагалі – 2-3 години.
5.	Скільки коштує найдорожча книга, яку ви можете собі дозволити?
Своєчасне питання. Довгий час чекала, щоб в книгарні з’явилась одна книга. І коли цей час настав, ціна її 280 грн. І я її купила? Пфф. Тому за книгу можу видати до 230 грн. Але можеее і подумаю. А може ні. А може і да😏
6.	Скільки книг плануєте прочитати у 2018 році? 
Точно більше ніж у цьому. Ну, хоча б постараюсь😅
7.	Скільки сторінок читаєте за день? 
Стараюсь прочитати не менше 50.
