"Vanity and pride are different things. though the words are often used synonymously.A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves vanity to what we would have others think of us." ✏
Hey all,I'm back sorry for being inactive for such a long time,I've been busy with my thessis so it's quiet taken a lot of time to finsished it but here I am now.
Finally,I finished this books it was such a thrilled to read this books and I may share some of my opinion while I read it.
Pride & Prejudice is one of the greatest and beautiful ofAusten's work in English literature.she writes in such beautiful style and language when I read It I felt being brought to different world and the languages completely shows the gentleness of woman and the relationship between the social and each individuals of the characters ompletely affected to one another ✏
It took time for me to read as its classics languange but truth is worth to read Especially for those who wants to widen their Vocabularies in English this book is really recommended.I truly had no regard to read it and gladly to put this book as one of my collection in my bookshelves.
What is a classic you still haven't read?
For me it's The Wind in the Willows! I won this beautiful copy when I joined bookstagram about two years ago now and I still haven't read it! 🙈 I also can't wait to try this delicious sounding Alice in Wonderland tea!
It's been raining all week here in LA which is actually lovely because I like the rain, and after the rain comes spring flowers and beautiful colors like these! I have been so busy with life stuff I haven't had time to post or read much 😭 but I did start the audiobook of A Million Junes (almost enitirely due to the glowing rec from @paperbackbones!) and I really like it so far! I'm hoping things with the magic, myths and ghosts get much weirder, and it seems set up that way! But I'll be disappointed if it doesn't get darker/stranger! 😂😈 (I love me some dark magical realism *ahem the Magiciannnnsss*)

Hello lovelies! I hope you're having an amazing day. Mine has been kind of a mess! I almost forgot I had a dentist appointment and got ready in under ten minutes, my husband would be proud *haha*.*
I love the way these spines look together! The color is just beautiful!*
What are some of your favorite spines? I have to say I'm in love with the way The Lunar Chronicles' spines look!
I had to post another photo of Rainbirds by Clarissa Goenawan because I just started reading it and I am really loving it. It's a slower meditative read, the story takes place mainly in the protagonist’s thoughts and I feel like that allows for a much more intimate reading experience. The story’s setting is in a fictional town outside of Tokyo, Japan and centers on a man going to his sister's home in order to settle her affairs after her murder. As he is coming to terms with his sister's passing, questions regarding her murder and regarding her personal life arise as Ren Ishida, our main character, realizes that there was a lot about his sister that he never knew. I'm still at the beginning of the novel, but I'm finding it very addictive.
What was the last book that you couldn't put down?
“...and best of all, the wilderness of books, in which she could wander, where she liked, made the library a region of bliss to her.”
Today is day 22 of #authorappreciationmarch and I’m showing off my collection of nice edition classics. I often use these in my photos but you don’t always get to see what books they are. I adore them for how they look but I also love that they contain amazing stories. Full disclosure I don’t love Twain but the edition was gorgeous so I bought his books too. Lol .
Out of all the books I found I was probably most excited for Little Women. It was a book I loved as a child and love as an adult too. It’s a coming of age novel that follows four sisters. I always loved the story and out of all the sisters I adore Jo the most. If you’ve read this book you’ll also know how much so many people also shipped Jo with Laurie. I was and still am such a person. Lol .
If I had the money I’d buy all the books I loved with these gorgeous covers but I mainly just buy these when I am lucky enough to find them in library sales.
Q: Do you read classics? . . . . #bookstagram#prettybooks#eastonpress#leatherboundbooks#classics
“I BELIEVE IN YOU, NOT MATTER WHAT.”
hey dearies 🌚
isn’t it hard, that the most wonderful people most live (far) away? of course it is!
except for one girl, i found out that my “real friends” here aren’t my “real friends”. i want to do what makes me happy and my “friends” just told me that i would “fall and that my dreams will never come true”. the girl i called my “best friend” told me: “if you fall, i will not help you up.”
and then there are the most wonderful people in my life telling me they would standing by my side, no matter what comes and they live hundred kilometers far away (@romysbooks & @jessisbooks and the other ones)🙄😕 and i miss them so much.
also i want to talk about another topic. at first i don’t wanted to use this picture for a topic like this, but yeah...
i’m happy with my decision and break up school (i graduated one year ago, but wanted to do my abitur). actually i’ve to be the happiest person alive at the moment and i also thought i was, but i’m not. i far rather lay in my bed and cry the whole day and i can’t tell why. i’m scared at this point, because this situation awakes bad memory’s i don’t want them to come back.
maybe it’s because the thing i want to do with all my heart and all my life and my bad head that tell me: “maybe... your dreams doesn’t come true and you have to be realistic.” i hate myself for all these thoughts and i wish i could do something against for.
but maybe it’s something different i don’t know. i still hope everything will become well, because i noticed that i act happy, although i’m not.
hope you’re all happy at the moment! ❤️ much love to you all! ❤️✨

Last night I finished A Conjuring of Light and I have no words, just all of the feels. This series was absolutely phenomenal and I'm so glad I finally read it. The world building was spot on, the characters were amazing and everything was just perfect. V.E. Schwab is definitely one of my favourite authors now, and I cannot wait to dive into one of her other series. This Savage Song has been on my shelves for a while now and the story sounds so interesting. Have you read this duology? What did you think? Raise your hands if you love V.E. Schwab as much as I do! ✨
The sweet @shansbookshelf.877 tagged me ages ago to do the #bookscourtshiptag , thank you so much! 💛
» [ Initial attraction: a cover buy book ] - Definitely We are Okay (Nina LaCour). This book ended up being a bit of a disappointment for me, though, because I started it thinking there would be a f/f romance and, well...
» [ First impression: bought because of the summary ] - I bought Thirteen Reasons Why (Jay Asher) because it sounded so interesting. I really enjoyed reading this but I do think differently about it now and I don't know if I would still enjoy it if I read it today.
» [ First date: a first book in a series that made you read the rest ] - A Darker Shade of Magic (V.E. Schwab), of course. Damn.
» [ Late night phone call: a book that kept you up all night ] - It wouldn't be a tag if I didn't mention Blood for Blood (Ryan Graudin), right?
» [ Thinking about the future: a book you want to reread soon ] - I'd love to reread Cinder (Marissa Meyer) or The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern) very soon because they're some of my favourite reads ever and I cannot wait to return to those wonderful worlds!
My girls are suuuper excited to take a real dance class. They make me watch their dancing performances on the grand living room stage , but I’m hoping they don’t freeze up when it comes time to show off! They are also loving this look and find style book because it’s filled with pretty ballerinas. Local friends: you can still grab this book and many others in my moving sale for the next 2 days AND I’d love dance class recommendations (remember I have to pay for 2 girls at the same time) that are in or near Santaquin. Thanks!
Hi! Today I’m going swimming with my nephews and I’m so excited;) And I’m still so excited to see Love Simon tomorrow it’s really all I can think about I took this picture because I looove these glasses I got. I hate the glare in the glasses but otherwise this picture is cute so whatever😂
QOTD: Favorite summer activity?
-going to the pool and then going home to read😻
I’m so excited to be able to feature Heaven Adjacent by Catherine Ryan Hyde 😍It sounds like such an uplifting story about the unexpected pleasures of life and I can’t wait to start reading ❤️I’ll leave the synopsis below!
Roseanna Chaldecott spent her life as a high-powered lawyer in Manhattan. But when her best friend and law partner dies suddenly, something snaps. Unsure of her future, Roseanna heads upstate on one tank of gas and with no plans to return.
In the foothills of the Adirondacks, Roseanna discovers the perfect hideout in a ramshackle farm. Its seventy-six acres are rich with possibilities and full of surprises, including a mother and daughter squatting on the property. Although company is the last thing Roseanna wants, she reluctantly lets them stay.
Roseanna and the young girl begin sculpting junk found around the farm into zoo animals, drawing more newcomers—including her estranged son, Lance. He pleads with Roseanna to return to the city, but she’s finally discovered where she belongs. It may not provide the solitude she originally sought, but her heart has found room for much more.
QOTD: What’s your GoodReads goal for 2018?
I set a goal of reading at least 25 books this year, but so far I’m totally NOT on tract 😅I’ve only read a total of two books and I haven’t had much time to get through my third read lately 😭I’m hoping next week I’ll have a bit more time, cause I miss being able to read whenever I want 😥
Being such a major fan of @orbitbooks I was thrilled when they were willing to send me a copy of TORN. They've hooked me forever on seamstress books, do you have any more recommendations!?
REVIEW: If I had to sum up why I enjoyed Torn in two factors it would be: Sophie's dilemma and the world building in terms of revolution and magic. Our main character, Sophie, captivated me. She was so intriguing because she is a seamstress (and as someone who can't sew, this is already notable) but also has this interesting relationship with her culture/heritage. The political unrest is brewing from page one and this sweeps you up. It's like Les Miserables meets a Tamora Pierce book (hello Sandry!). No I didn't hear the songs while I read this, nope, not at all - of course I did!
Spring flowers... sort of//New York City, USA🇺🇸 ------------------------------

Les piliers de la terre/ the pillars of the earth by Ken Follett
▪️ Today I finally read the last page of this famous book. The story takes place around the year 1000 in England. A joiner, Tom, is trying to find a job to buy some food to give to his family. His biggest dream is to build the most magnificient cathedral of the region.
▪️I'm just so in love with Ken Follett's writing so I was pretty sure I would like that book. Even though the story looks simple at first sight, it is full of actions that change the lives of the caracters. I loved it and i'm super excited to read part two of the trilogy 😊
Aujourd'hui j'ai enfin terminé les piliers de la terre de Ken Follett que j'ai adoré. L'histoire tourne autour de Tom, maçon, qui cherche un travail afin de pouvoir nourrir sa petite famille. Son plus grand rêve ? Construire la plus belle capitale de la région.
▪️Je suis une grande fan de Ken Follett donc j'étais à peu près sûre d'aimer ce livre. Même si l'histoire semble simple, il y a beaucoup d'action et plein de suspense. J'ai adoré et j'ai hâte de lire le deuxième tome de la trilogie.
