The second book in the Ram Chandra series done making that book 5 of the summer! A fascinating take on Sita - a good reminder of the strength of women in Hindu mythology. Again - very simple writing but the Ramayana in any form is NEVER a dull read! #namsreadinglist
Sometimes the best things in life aren't things at all, but the little moments we can choose to experience and be grateful for. Like spending time in a hammock with a good book and a few of your closest animal friends. 🤓
And by sometimes, I mean all the time.
I spent yesterday at the beach and most of the time I was reading. It was a perfect day!
I finished 'Unconventional' at half past one yesterday morning and I am so glad I read it. I've never actually been to a convention but I'm pretty sure I would love it! I'm now back to 'Heartland' which I am also very much enjoying. I love books that keep me hooked!
I just got home from an @idinamenzel concert and holy.freakin.cow... It was incredible!😍😭❤️ I have never been to a concert before and I was blown away😵
As far as reading goes the slump be real😭 I started to re-read Ignite Me to see if that would help pull me out, but every time I have a spare moment to read I END UP WATCHING SUPERNATURAL INSTEAD SEND HELP!!! NETFLIX IS THE ENEMY OF READERS😤
"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life." - W. Somerset Maugham.
Somewhere after "lose weight", "stop procrastinating", and "fall in love", "read more" is one of the top goals that many people set for themselves. A good book can be hugely satisfying, can teach you about things beyond your daily horizons, and can create characters so vivid you feel as if you really know them. If reading is a habit you’d like to get into, there are a number of ways to cultivate it. Always carry a book. Wherever you go, take a book with you. If there is a time when you have to wait, whip out your book and read. Great way to pass the time instead of grabbing your phone! Make a list. Keep a list of all the great books you want to read. You can keep this in your journal, in a pocket notebook, on your personal home page, wherever. Be sure to add to it whenever you hear about a good book, online or in person. Keep a running list, and cross out the ones you read. Find a quiet place. Find a place in your home where you can sit in a comfortable chair and curl up with a good book without interruptions. There should be no television or computer near the chair to minimize distractions, and no music or noisy family members/roommates. If you don’t have a place like this, create one. Reduce television/Internet. If you really want to read more, try cutting back on TV or Internet consumption. This may be difficult for many people. Still, every minute you reduce of Internet/TV, you could use for reading. This could create hours of book reading time. Make it pleasurable. Make your reading time your favorite time of day. Have some good tea or coffee while you read, or another kind of treat. Get into a comfortable chair with a good blanket. Read during sunrise or sunset, or at the beach.

I'm back! 👋🏻
It was nice to have a break for a few months, but I'm ready to get back in to the swing of things. I've missed you all so much, and I can't wait to hear about everything you guys have been doing/what you've been reading/what the latest goss in the book world is. 😍
(I'll be replying to messages and emails throughout the week, so if you're waiting on a response from me it won't be too much longer!)
So hey. You are not dreaming, I actually have posted something. I probably been gone for so long, I'm guessing you guys have forgotten about me😓 the truth is... I haven't been able to put into words on how I was feeling about this account and why I wasn't able to post anything. UNTIL I watched @twirlingpages new YouTube video about being authentic and she talks about the reason why she haven't been active on instagram. Listening to her explain her situation made me realise the same was happening to me. I really recommend you to watch it! -
I think everything was moving so fast with this account, I started to get stressed about not being able take photos and post everyday. Plus my uni work also added to the pressure. All of this happening, I started losing my creative spark for bookstagram. I decided then to take a short break to get inspired again.
I know I lost quite a large number of followers, so thank you for those who stayed, I really REALLY appreciate it❤️My posts right now will look slightly similar to my theme before but I'll start making changes soon☺️
Thank you for those who actually read to the end😂 I tend to ramble☺️
Anyway, what is going on with you guys?
Turnus: Villain you loved #fortunefavoursaugust
Now this books doesn't (SPOILERS) really have a villain, it turns out the evil is just.... life. (There is a few bad people but still) and I really liked that aspect?
Q: Favourite graphic novel?
A: This is? Maybe my second, but I loved both this one, and the first I read, Blankets!
@mimi_onthebeach snuck a shot of us reading the 4th book in the Deltora Quest series, The Shifting Sands by Emily Rodda, on the beach yesterday. The boys and I are addicted to this series and I'd highly recommend reading it to you youngens! I love reading outside! The distractions are gone and we connect to the reading and fly through the chapters! The boys ask me to read to them everywhere we go! What a good feeling that is!
What is your favorite book quote? 💜
We are in love with the cover for ! It's a lush, magical story with very beautiful writing! It's about twin sisters with the ability to manipulate beauty as they unearth an ancient curse.
