I can't tell if I like BBC Sherlock or not, I haven't watched it but I've seen clips, trailers, edits etc and I'm kinda torn. Like don't get me wrong it has stuff going for it but I'm not sure how comfortable I'd feel with the modern adaption in general considering my love for the classic story. I'm sure it's more of a preference thing than me actually critiquing the series but I've heard... some fan complaints to say the least. #sherlockholmes #classicliterature #literature #arthurconandoyle

Loving this review (& picture) of Natalia Ginzburg’s Happiness as Such (from the August Book Box), by the lovely Emma @thebookshelfofachampagnechild! As you all probably know by now, I adore Ginzburg’s writing and I’m thrilled to pull more of you onto the Ginzburg loving bandwagon! 😀 . “"I want to thank Mamma for the money, shirts, and the dark suit, which I didn't wear on my wedding day. I'll never wear it. I put it away in the closet with some mothballs." - Natalia Ginzburg, Happiness, as Such ---- In my @theboxwalla I received Natalia Ginzburg's Happiness, as Such and I LOVED THIS BOOK! Thank you! I am so grateful to @theboxwalla for bringing this author to my attention, this was my first taste of her work - and now I will read everything she has ever written (I specifically want to read Dry Heart). This novel is mostly epistolary, and I loved how much story came through letters being written, and how well characters were developed within their letters. The story is about Michele, who leaves Italy, told through the letters between him, his mother, his sister, friend, and ex-lover. This book had a taste of the films Igby Goes Down and The Royal Tennenbaums. They are a dysfunctional family, who love each other in an estranged way - it's funny, shocking, relatable, and curious. Really really fantastic. --- "But we're all unreliable and broken somewhere inside and sometimes it seems desperately attractive to be unrooted and breathing nothing but your own solitude. That's how people find each other, and understand”.” . #womenintranslation #booklover

"White Pond and Walden are great crystals on the surface of the earth, Lakes of Light." . - Henry David Thoreau, "Walden" . This is Walden Pond in Concord, MA which my siblings and I visited on one of our roadtrips. The four of us walked all the way around it together, as author Louisa May Alcott (who lived close by) knew siblings are prone to do. #traveltuesday . . . #itwasatadbitcold #siblingsaretheclosestfriends #ibearacharmedlife #lakesoflight #theliterarytourist #classicliteraturequotes #classicliterature #henrydavidthoreau #waldenpond #concordmass #louisamayalcott #orchardhouse #roadtrip #newengland #eastcoast #historicalsights #siblingtrip #readnmarked #writtorg #oldbooks

My first #bookhaul for #victober I thought I would try to fit some nonfiction in. This was published in 1859. This is also the first of the Patterns of Life series by Vintage Classics and I'm obsessed. Definitely going to be getting the rest of these. As a biologist, I really should have gotten to this sooner. * * * * #vintageinthewild #nonfictionbooks #biology #booking #booksofinstagram #bookcollector #bookpile #booklover #bookalicious #bookaesthetic #booknerd #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookishlove #bookstoread #bookstagram #bookworm #books📚 #bookstagrammer #victobertbr #victober2019 #classicbooks #literature #science #classicliterature #classicbookstagram

O projeto já acabou e agora é hora de falar sobre esse clássico lançado recentemente pela @darksidebooks Você sabia que Frankstein não tem nada a ver com um monstro, e esse é sim, o nome do seu criador? Pois é, tapa na minha cara também quando comecei a ler. Uma história, em que mescla o universo da invenção com a humanização, e cria assim, um novo ser todo feioso e meio bizarro. Mas ele é bonzinho, e só quer a companhia de uma moça que não o abandone igual ao seu inventor. Frankstein nos pergunta até onde nossa restrição à sociedade, e nossa busca pelo conhecimento pode nos levar, nos matando ou salvando. E aí, já leu? Que me diz dessa super capa?

And so, the "Villette" read along has begun! This is my first time reading a Brontë novel. (I'm not counting the bits of Jane Eyre I've read). I'm just a couple chapters in, but it's getting interesting! Edit: apparently Rome dows show up in Villette. I purchased my copy early this year in a fun bookstore in Rome, so it is extra special! #rachelsreadalongs

Reasons you should join the read-along of Bleak House by Charles Dickens hosted by @miss.havishams.clock and me: 🍂 1. Charles Dickens is awesome. He is one of my very favorite authors. I love his humor, his characters, his descriptions. . 2. It's perfect for #Victober and also the perfect book to read in the fall! You can also count it for #2020classics . 3. Andrea is super knowledgeable about Dickens. She always has the most interesting and helpful input! She is reading all his books in publication order (many are rereads for her) and Bleak House is next on her journey. I love reading everything she has to say about each Dickens book. . 4. We are considering doing a few IGTV guide videos to go along with the read along. More on that later. . 4. There is a really good FREE auido book narrator on the free Librivox app. Her name is Mil Nicholsen and I am excited to listen to another Dickens book narrated by her. If you are more of an audio book person, it's a really great option. 🍂 Details: -The readalong starts October 1st and goes through the end of November. Swipe to the next slide to see the break down of the schedule. -We will be having a discussion every Saturday. -If you post about it use #ableakhousereadalong. And if you know anyone who may be interested, please share this post with them. -Let one of us know that you are interested and we will add you to a chat group when it gets closer to October. . Will you be joining in? If not, do you have a favorite Dickens? Or a Dickens on your TBR? . . . #theboookishcookier #dickens #charlesdickens #victorianlondon #victorianengland #victorianliterature #classics #bleakhouse #classiclit #classicliterature #britlit #britishliterature #britishclassics #bookdragon #readalong #bookclub #buddyread #favoriteauthor

Today finally feels like fall where I live, but probably because it’s been raining all day. One of my favorite fall reads is Daddy Long Legs because it’s mostly set in a girls college.

✧ “no woman should be made to believe she was not enough” ✧ - do you prefer to read standalones or series? before reading PRIORY i think i likely would have said series but in this single (but mammoth) book, i managed to entirely fall in love with so many characters and people so i might just have to change my answer. in regards to the hate u give, i actually dnfed it but it was literally nothing to do with the book since it was amazing. i just wasn’t in the right headspace and didn’t want to push myself to read if i knew i wasn’t going to take it in. • - the weather is absolutely ridiculous here atm! it’s been about 22°c for almost a week and it’s becoming so annoying since all i want is for proper autumn now ahaha. - • • • #book #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookshelf #literature #yafantasy #classicliterature #youngadultreads #shelfie #read #reader #reading #bookish #photography #photo #bookish #booknerd #yalit #girl #youngadult #youngadultfantasy #fantasyliterature #bookshelves #bookaesthetic #theprioryoftheorangetree #thehateyougive #autumn

And all at once, summer collapsed into fall - Oscar Wilde . . . One of my favourite quotes from a true genius. Not many people know my love for classic literature, but give me a Wilde play or a Keats poem and I’ll be lost for hours. How can you not admire them; the wordsmiths from another world who perfectly encompassed the emotions of many into flowing, enriching words. There’s nothing better than the thoughts of a romantic #oscarwilde #autumn #goodbyesummer #fall #classicliterature #romantics

Have you read The Green Ember series by S. D. Smith? It's an epic adventure featuring amazing and lovable #rabbitswithswords. The story is bound to be a classic and makes great family reading. This morning I learned the final book is available for preorder. In addition, another novella and some cool merch had been added to their shop. I couldn't resist but pre-ordered the two new books and a mug. The novella and mug will ship December 9 (merry Christmas to me!), and the final book will ship in the Spring. I can't wait to get them. Patience is a virtue; patience is a virtue; patience is a virtue... 😜

𝕃𝕖𝕤 𝔼𝕟𝕗𝕒𝕟𝕥𝕤 𝕋𝕖𝕣𝕣𝕚𝕓𝕝𝕖𝕤⁣ ⁣ Written by Jean Cocteau and published in 1929, Les enfants terribles tells the tragic story of Paul and Elizabeth, two siblings who isolate themselves from society because of the neglect suffered in early years and adolescence. ⁣ ⁣ A short modern classic which at first sight gives the illusion of a simple fun story nevertheless there’s so much written between those lines. My first read of Cocteau, one of the favourite things about this book were his drawings, the one on the cover is one of them. I later found out he was an artist too, as a matter a fact his life was fascinating. ⁣ ⁣ Just last week I’ve done some training for work about how children deal with adverse traumatic experiences and how trauma affects the person they come to become. I find it difficult when it comes to children, it gets to me and even reading this book had left its mark on me. Cocteau’s attempt to bring attention to such delicate matters is brilliant, and he definitely got my attention. I want to read more of his work, I want to understand him better as a human.⁣ ⁣ 𝒯𝒽𝑒 𝓌𝑜𝓇𝓁𝒹 𝑜𝓌𝑒𝓈 𝒾𝓉𝓈 𝑒𝓃𝒸𝒽𝒶𝓃𝓉𝓂𝑒𝓃𝓉 𝓉𝑜 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝓈𝑒 𝒸𝓊𝓇𝒾𝑜𝓊𝓈 𝒸𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓉𝓊𝓇𝑒𝓈 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝒾𝓇 𝒻𝒶𝓃𝒸𝒾𝑒𝓈; 𝒷𝓊𝓉 𝒾𝓉𝓈 𝓂𝓊𝓁𝓉𝒾𝓅𝓁𝑒 𝒸𝑜𝓂𝓅𝓁𝒾𝒸𝒾𝓉𝓎 𝓇𝑒𝒿𝑒𝒸𝓉𝓈 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝓂. 𝒯𝒽𝒾𝓈𝓉𝓁𝑒𝒹𝑜𝓌𝓃 𝓈𝓅𝒾𝓇𝒾𝓉𝓈, 𝓉𝓇𝒶𝑔𝒾𝒸, 𝒽𝑒𝒶𝓇𝓉𝓇𝑒𝓃𝒹𝒾𝓃𝑔 𝒾𝓃 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝒾𝓇 𝑒𝓋𝒶𝓃𝑒𝓈𝒸𝑒𝓃𝒸𝑒, 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝓎 𝓂𝓊𝓈𝓉 𝑔𝑜 𝒷𝓁𝑜𝓌𝒾𝓃𝑔 𝒽𝑒𝒶𝒹𝓁𝑜𝓃𝑔 𝓉𝑜 𝓅𝑒𝓇𝒹𝒾𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃.⁣ ⁣ I think we all aspire to live in a kinder and better world and it starts with the little humans, the under 18s. Either a sibling, a neighbour, a relative, a pupil, a patient, a service user or even a stranger, be kind. The constant “ you are not good enough “ “but whoever is better” or “they will be alright” are not okay/ enough. Don’t be afraid to ask “are you okay?”, to give them a bit of your time. Let’s do our bit to help them become the adult we’d like to be whether is our job in whatever capacity or just informing an agency about your worries 💛 ⁣ ⁣ On a lighter note, what shall I name this cactus? 🧐⁣

In recognition of Banned Books Week, I highlight John Steinbeck. Steinbeck showed us compassion, empathy, and the true nature of the human soul (both good and bad). Through his words, he compelled us to examine ourselves and try to become better human beings. If you want to try a bit of Steinbeck, a good place to start is the short story ‘Junius Maltby’. In just a couple dozen pages, this iconic author changes how we view others. #bannedbooksweek #banned #johnsteinbeck @steinbeckcenter @americanlibraryassociation #ofmiceandmen #grapesofwrath #juniusmaltby #timshel #bookstagram #bookshelves @penguinclassics @mybookfeatures @bookflatlay #thepageswelove #compassion #empathy #booklover #salinascalifornia #california #classicliterature #booknerd #bookworm

{Unbezahlte Werbung} ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Frankenstein 🧟‍♂️- wir alle haben diesen Namen schon mal gehört. Wir alle haben ein Bild oder eine Geschichte dazu. Mary Shelleys Frankstein, war dann doch etwas anders, als ich es mir vorgestellt hatte, aber es hat sich gelohnt. ☝🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Die Idee, Gott zu spielen, selbst zum Schöpfer zu werden, beeindruckt die Menschen seit Urzeiten. Im Mittelpunkt ihres Romans steht nicht nur das legendäre Monster, sondern vor allem die Lebensgeschichte des besessenen Wissenschaftlers Victor Frankenstein. Das Buch, welches als Briefroman verfasst ist, erzählt die Geschichte um Frankensteins Monster aus Victors Sicht, seinem Studium und wie er es schafft, totes Fleisch wieder zum Leben zu erwecken. Doch das Ergebnis seiner Versuche erschüttert und entsetzt ihn so sehr, dass er dem Wesen seinem Schicksal überlässt. Verzweifelte auf der Suche nach Nähe und Akzeptanz endet alles im Chaos und Verwüstung... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Im Buch ist das „Monster“, im Gegensatz zu den meisten Verfilmungen, zwar auch äußerlich abstoßend, doch dahinter steckt ein intelligenter, sensibler aber von seinen Emotionen und der abweisenden Umwelt zum Unhold geformter Mensch. Hier ein Auszug, der mich zum Nachdenken bewegt hat: 'Ach! Warum brüstet sich der Mensch damit, dem Tier gefühlsmäßig überlegen zu sein? Das macht uns nur zu bedürftigeren Wesen. Wenn unsere Triebe auf Hunger, Durst und Begierde beschränkt wären, dann könnten wir beinahe frei sein. So aber werden wir von jedem Windstoß umhergetrieben, von jedem zufälligen Wort oder jedem Bild, das uns dieses Wort vermittelt.' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Der Schreibstil ist nicht immer einfach, es hat seine 'Längen' und man darf hier auch nicht allzu viel Spannung und Grusel erwarten, wie es einem die meisten Schauergeschichten und Filme zuvor gelehrt haben. In diesem Buch geht es eher um Moral, Verantwortung und die Vorurteile unserer Gesellschaft. Und ja, trotz seines Alters passt vieles noch heute. Oder schauen wir nicht auch immer erst auf das Äußere? Und sollte der Mensch es vielleicht lassen, durch künstliche Weise neues Leben erschaffen zu wollen, weil es ihn am Ende doch noch einholen wird?💭 @dtv_verlag

"Often we do not achieve for others the good that we intend but achieve something, something that goes on from our effort. Good is an overflow. Where we generously and sincerely intend it, we are engaged in a work of creation which may be mysterious even to ourselves..." The Bell Iris Murdoch 😊 🙂 It's another #tribandtuesday and a #booksiveneverpostedbefore post - at least not the covers, and not together. I love these covers. They are understated and, unlike some, I feel like there is a real affinity between the design and the book. 📚 👌🏼 Iris Murdoch is an underrated writer in my opinion. I have her "Under the Net" to read on my shelf, and I'm looking forward to it. 📚 👍🏼 Have you read any of her work? 📚 🤔 Or any of the other books on display here? 📚 🤷🏽‍♂️ I'll leave you with another gem from The Bell: "Our actions are like ships which we may watch set out to sea, and not know when or with what cargo they will return to port." 😯 🤔 #irismurdoch #vintagepenguins #oldbooks #ernesthemingway #johnbuchan #hansuyin #evelynwaugh #dhlawrence #flatlaybooks #classicliterature

I’m not saying the first line of Pride & Prejudice is the best first line but it’s well known and is the only one I can ever remember because for some reason my mum liked to recite it fairly often. Plus I have a copy of P&P with a guinea pig on the front so that worked out well 😆 The illustrated edition by Alice Pattullo is gorgeous and colourful and also smells amazing! . #prideandprejudice #janeausten #guineapigprideandprejudice #illustratedprideandprejudice #alicepattullo #bookstagramuk #booklover #bookcollector #classics #classicliterature #firstlines #bestfirstlines #animalsoncover

All is for the best in the best of possible worlds ~ Voltaire (Candide, Or Optimism) ☕ People either seem to love or hate Candide by Voltaire - I, for one, adore it. Of course, the plot is more than exaggerated and the characters veer into caricature but, in my opinion, that's the whole point of the story... I do not know what I expected going into the story - a rather dry but philosophically profound essay on anthropology probably. Instead, I got an incredibly absurd, fast-paced and hilarious story I was able to fly through in one go! In other words, I'd recommend giving Candide a try ☕ #bookshelves #bookhaul #bookstore #bookstagram #bookaholic #booknerd #bibliophile #literature #classicliterature #classics #readerofinstagram #avidreader #novels #bookquotes #booklover #bookishlove #bookish #bookblogging #bookobsessed #aesthetic #bookshopping #englishlit #englishliterature #aestheticbooks #review #bookcollection #bookcollector #bookishpost

My current read - Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy... Since I simply adored Tess of the D'Urbervilles and really liked Jude the Obscure as well, I thought I'd give Under The Greenwood Tree a try. What's your favourite Hardy novel and have you had a look at his poetry yet? #bookshelves #bookhaul #bookstore #bookstagram #bookaholic #booknerd #bibliophile #literature #classicliterature #classics #readerofinstagram #avidreader #novels #bookquotes #booklover #bookishlove #bookish #bookblogging #bookobsessed #aesthetic #bookshopping #englishlit #englishliterature #aestheticbooks #review #bookcollection #bookcollector #bookishpost
