  • "It sounded great at the time," God laments, "but I am no better than when anime authors put their characters in wet bathing suits." He went on, staring out into the vast, dark universe as he lit his pipe off of a supernovae. "Unfortunately, I kind of opened up Pandora's box here with The Gospel of Luke. I mean, what relevance to the ultimate storyline of all humanity does this book provide?" A tear comes to his eye, knowing that he has lost creative control of his creation.

some little factoids about my studies:
• i study english literature
• i love romantic poetry
• my favourite genre is gothic ! 
fc: 7 (̂ ˃̥̥̥ ˑ̫ ˂̥̥̥ )̂ #qotd: what book are you currently reading?

  • ⁣Unlike a lot of my shelves, I’ve actually read the majority of these 📚☀⠀
⠀
Here’s to the 5/8s I’ve read! I started reading classics as a teenager so I’d seem more cultured and could pretend that my favorite novels weren’t about kids with supernatural abilities. ⠀
⠀
And now I read them because I’m an English major... 😂 However, I no longer feel like a fake in my love for them! Classics are classics for a reason. They show how literature shapes the world and how we think 🌎 ⠀

———————— - ❆ - ———————— 4.5🌟 
WHERE TO START. This has probably all been said before, because I’m usual I’m late to the game 🤷🏻‍♀️. These characters had so much depth. I absolutely adored every single one, and I thought that Leigh Bardugo did an amazing job on crafting their backstories to explain why they are the way they are. Some of these stories were heart-wrenching, and really made me feel for the characters (especially Kaz 🥺). -
I was in awe of how aware Kaz was of his surroundings, and how he always seemed one step ahead of everyone (including me 😂). I do wish there had been a little more of a challenge for them, and I think the tension could have been build around the situation a little more. However saying that, the book is incredibly character driven, which makes up for this! (Also WYLAN IS THE MOST PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLL EVER 🥺) -

  • 🌿Do you have a favourite classic?

Mr Boddington’s Studio is a luxury stationer from Manhattan. These beautiful editions were sold exclusively at @anthropologie until they went out of print for less than £20. They are currently difficult to find for a decent price, it’s best to keep regularly checking second hand options until a copy you can afford pops up.

An interesting fact: there was a printing error on Jane Eyre, and Emily Brontë is credited as the author instead of Charlotte Brontë on the boards underneath the dust jacket.

Capture @theartfulelle.

  • Shyam Selvadurai’s Funny Boy is a novel in six stories. The Sri Lankan Canadian novelist expresses bold issues of homosexuality, civil war and racial inferiority in a prosaic form.
📚  As the name suggests, Funny Boy. The novel opens up with Arjie, who is a sweet, funny boy. The joint family is like a big world to Arjie where he finds happiness in small things.  His interests are unlike what society expects. Indulging himself in the girl’s World, he loves to drape sarees, play bride-bride and try different shades of lipsticks. 📚
Shehan stands out to be another strong figure. He makes Arjie realise his sexuality and live for him. In the battles of life, Arjie finds his soulmate who helps and protects him. However, Shyam Selvadurai confesses to not look Funny Boy as an autobiographical novel. Whereas, instances of commonality touch peaks. 📚
The shift from personal to the political emerges as the most important twist of the novel. With the rising political disturbances in Sri Lanka. However, the war between the Army and Tamil Tigers snatched the comforts of masses. As the war ends it is understandable how the ‘win’ was served to none and only emotional upheavals inaugurated. Arjie clearly talks of the emotional avalanche in 1983, Riot Journal which comes by the end of the novel and subsequent damage caused to the house. Thus, leaving their territory and residing in Canada. 📚
Fun Facts.  1)It is The Toronto Writer’s Award-Winning first novel.  2)Filmmaker Deepa Mehta announces in 2018 that she will adapt the novel into a film.  3)The LTTE assassinated Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 at a time when he was widely expected to return to power.  #booksrecommendation #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #booklover #couldandshouldread  #englishlit #racialequality #shyamselvadurai #readinggoals #classics #justread  #bestofinstagram #readingxommunity #quarantinebookstoread #bookaddict #readersgonnaread #readersareleaders #literarydigest

  • "We are all stardust and stories." Das sternenlose Meer ist am Montag endlich auf Deutsch erschienen und ich war sehr froh ein Rezensionsexemplar bekommen zu haben, da der Nachtzirkus von Erin Morgenstern eines meiner Lieblingsbücher ist. Das Buch handelt von Zachary Ezra, der eigentlich an seiner Masterarbeit schreiben müsste, sich aber lieber in der Bibliothek durch willkürliche Bücher liest. Eines Tages findet er ein Buch, in dem seine eigene Lebensgeschichte drin steht und wird in eine geheime Welt hineingezogen.

Zuerst war ich sehr begeistert von der Idee des Buches und all den literarischen Anspielungen. Ein weiterer Plot des Buches waren Kapitel, in denen metaphorische Szenen beschrieben wurden. Ich kann bis jetzt nicht sagen, was der Sinn dieser kurzen Einblendungen war und worum es da eigentlich ging. Leider haben diese auch den Gesamteindruck des Buches verschlechtert. Ich hätte gerne mehr Zachary erfahren und einen stärkeren roten Faden gehabt. Trotzdem ist das Buch ein Highlight für bibliophile Leser.

  • -BEHIND THE STUDYGRAM-
Hi! Although I’ve had this account for nearly a year this is like a introductory post to the person behind the studygram account. So, hi my name is Jessica and I’m 15 years old. I enjoy reading and I spend most of my time watching Netflix or playing The Sims 4😂 
Some facts about me:
> My favourite bands are ABBA, Queen, The Beatles, McFly and Busted.
> I am a holder of The Diana Award > I used to be Guide
> I was a Prefect in school
> I am addicted to buying stationery 
My Account: 
I’ve had this account for nearly a year and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Joining the studygram community has been amazing - everyone is so welcoming and nice. I created this account so I’d become more motivated in year 11 and although my GCSEs have been cancelled it’s really helped to motivate me. I’ve spoke to so many fantastic people in the studygram community and I’m so grateful for everyone🥺 I’ve spent lockdown making notes on Biology and Chemistry which is giving me a head start to A Levels and honestly the only thing that motivated me to do that was this account and seeing all the incredible accounts I’m following doing the same. I can’t wait to see where this account brings me in college and hopefully it will motivate me as much as it does now. I hope you are all having a good day and stay safe💗

  • WAKING GODS by Sylvain Neuvel 👽 the second book in the Themis Files, and I think the best of the series!

I don't read a lot of science fiction but this was good fun! A lot more happens in book two and the interview style is mixed in with other forms so that solved my only complaint from the first book. Action, relationships, revelations and some London locations which I always love 💚

I often think that the second book in a trilogy can be the best! We know the characters yet aren't quite wrapping things up yet, therefore it's all drama.

Which book do you enjoy most in a trilogy?

  • Good morning and happy Wednesday ఌ I’m so close to being done with the semester and some how my English class still has a another book we’re going to squeeze in before the final lol. We haven’t finished the first book yet, but I’m thinking we’ll be done with it sometime this week. I have another stats exam tomorrow that I’m trying not to stress out about. I’ll be dedicating my day to studying for that and hopefully won’t get too distracted in my room. I hope you guys are having a great week! ఌ

  • Which is your favourite book by Charles Dickens?
----
Mine are Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol and Great Expectations.
----
Also, today I finished reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens today. And I feel like I have won over a monster because its a 900+ page read with thousand different subplots and a million characters (Yes, I am exaggerating a bit but this is what it felt like). This book, however, is a very clever masterpiece that mocks the Chancery court system and its structure drives home the very point that it is trying to make. It is very long and at times dragged out and that is what the Chancery court system came to mean. In fact, it is said that this book flamed the fire that led to a huge overhaul of the legal system in England!!
📚
This book presents a wide variety of social aspects to ponder upon and its treatment of women and children is also something that I have learnt to recognize as Dicken's signature style. I think this book could actually be divided into many different novels and each would give its readers a lot to think over. It is that brilliant.
📚
However, to me, after reading other Dicken's works such as The Tale of Two Cities and The Great Expectations, the characters of bleak house seemed a tad bland. They just dim in comparison to the two books I mentioned and it might be because my heart is partial to these two. But, it is still an important read and must not be skipped by anyone who loves classics and especially Dickens.

    Mine are Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol and Great Expectations.
    ----
    Also, today I finished reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens today. And I feel like I have won over a monster because its a 900+ page read with thousand different subplots and a million characters (Yes, I am exaggerating a bit but this is what it felt like). This book, however, is a very clever masterpiece that mocks the Chancery court system and its structure drives home the very point that it is trying to make. It is very long and at times dragged out and that is what the Chancery court system came to mean. In fact, it is said that this book flamed the fire that led to a huge overhaul of the legal system in England!!
    📚
    This book presents a wide variety of social aspects to ponder upon and its treatment of women and children is also something that I have learnt to recognize as Dicken's signature style. I think this book could actually be divided into many different novels and each would give its readers a lot to think over. It is that brilliant.
    📚
    However, to me, after reading other Dicken's works such as The Tale of Two Cities and The Great Expectations, the characters of bleak house seemed a tad bland. They just dim in comparison to the two books I mentioned and it might be because my heart is partial to these two. But, it is still an important read and must not be skipped by anyone who loves classics and especially Dickens.

  • With the release of 'If It Bleeds,' a collection of novellas that contains a story about a haunted cell phone and one story told in reverse, it is official: the King is dead. Always one to overplay his hand and stretch one bonkers idea to the next, Mr. King admits that he is finished and that he was already "pushing it" with 2017's 'Sleeping Beauties.' With the reservoir officially run dry, King will hit himself over the head with his own typewriter and then force himself to eat the pages of 'The Mist.'

Book 7 was more for work purposes, having got through the last 9 years without teaching or reading it! 💫⁣
⁣
If we ever go back, I’m going to have to look at how to make it engaging and draw on my amazing colleagues and department to help me for sure! 👨🏻‍🏫⁣
⁣
Whilst I understood the underlying themes and idea behind it and who/what the characters represented, the ending was meh and, in my opinion, unnecessary. Maybe I’m missing something. 🤷🏻‍♂️⁣

  • "What they, in their innocence, cannot comprehend is that a properly constituted, healthy, decent man never writes, acts or composes"
Thomas Mann, Tonio Kröger •

I keep returning to British, French, American and Russian classics which is why one of my bookish resolutions for 2020 was picking up some German classics whilst expanding (or rather starting) my very own collection. Since I am lucky enough to be able to borrow books from my mum's shelves I never saw the point in acquiring my own copies. I might have mentioned somewhere, though, that I plan on switching to English and German (literature) at uni in order to become a teacher come autumn, meaning that there really is no excuse left for neglecting the German part of my collection any longer. Consequently, my very first book haul of 2020 consists of a more or less wide selection of what I've read and liked or even loved. I am hoping to pick up some unread German classics in the future, too - my priorities being works by Theodor Fontane, Heinrich Mann, Böll, Stefan Zweig, Kleist, Brecht, Tucholsky and Lessing. •
Do you see a pattern in your reading as well? And do you often pick up books that were written and published in your mother tongue?

 Starting to share my favourite quotes was such a good idea - I just love all the conversations that ensued! Thank you! Most likely, I'll continue sharing some favourites in the coming weeks!:) Other than that, I've also come up with a personal TBR for the summer including The Brothers Karamazov which I'll be buddy-reading with Jenny @jenny_cooke_reads , some Shirley Jackson, namely We Have Always Lived In The Castle and The Haunting of Hill House, as well as Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. 
What books do you plan on reading next?
