Next up in my Sisters Series is another Jane Austen favorite- Sense & Sensibility. I find outdoor backgrounds to be a bit overwhelming, but I’m actually fairly pleased with how this turned out.
Which Dashwood sister is your favorite - Elinor or Marianne?

If you asked me a couple years ago what my favorite classic is, I would have said ‘A Tale of Two Cities’. I still do love this book, but since then I have been committed to my #classicliteraturechallenge and have read so many more amazing classics that my list of favorites has gone from one to many. •

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!

I'm late for this one but Macbeth is my favorite Shakespearean play for #aprilshelfawareness ❤️❤️ I'm also a big fan of The Tempest.
.
.
Lady Macbeth is my favorite character in the play and it's so cool to see how she's inspired so many others over the years. In particular, I see a lot of her characterization in George R. R. Martin's Cersei. .
.

Q- what's your favorite play, Shakespearean or otherwise?

Cathy: I can’t forget your words, Ellen; they are always in my ear. How life will be changed, how dreary the world will be, when papa and you are dead. 
Ellen: No one can tell whether you won’t die before us. 
Me: Uhhhh Ellen, that doesn’t help.

Book review:
This book was creepy and spooky! It’s about a young governess who is in charge of two beautiful children and she starts to do whatever it takes to protect them. She starts to believe that the children are in danger and that there are things that want to hurt them.
The intro in this book was actually really good and it made me question whether or not the kids were actually in danger or if it was all in her head. 
The narrator of the story was also kinda weird....it started out by this guy telling the story and then switches to first person with the governess....and then it ends....like where did the original narrator go? Where did the group listening to the story go? What happened to the governess! I had a lot of questions at the end that are left unanswered!! Anyways I enjoyed it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

14/60 books read this year...still a little bit of catching up to do but uni is so nearly over for summer! ☀️🏖️
•
James Hogg's 'Confessions of a Justified Sinner' was fabulous and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Gothic fiction, particularly 'Frankenstein'. There's a lot of doubling and characters in chaos, it would be well suited to a Mary Shelley fan. It was also very similar to 'The Monk' by Matthew Lewis - another great Gothic read. Sadly, it wasn't right for my essay but I'm diving into some Hazlitt now to save the day. So many books, so little time✨

Keep pushing guys, it will be the weekend before you know it!

Thanks going out to @a_tad_bit_bookish for this lovely springtime layout of THE LAST DAYS OF OSCAR WILDE 💜💜 #Repost @a_tad_bit_bookish with @get_repost

‘To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.’ ~ Oscar Wilde
Hey awesome book nerds 🤓
Meet Oscar Wilde. His life is ending.

The year is 1898. Wilde's reputation is in ruins.

After the scandal, after the trial, and after the incarceration at Reading Gaol, Wilde lives in precarious exile in Paris. His friends urge him to start another great work, a new play or poem. But Wilde's attention is elsewhere: on the mysteries of art, on the demands of love, and on a final great flowering of the spirit.

As y’all know I’m a huge fan of #classicliterature  This #historicalfiction book is a treasure.  The writing style is a flash back to the prose of the masters. #johnvanderslice has captured the essence of Wilde himself and those around him.  It is agonizingly heartbreaking to read as Oscar fades away. This book truly humanizes the man, showing both the good and bad. It’s a wonderful book for any Wilde fan. 
Thanks to @tlcbooktours for sending me this gem. *
*
*
The above quote of Wilde’s always hits home with me. Someday I feel like I am just existing, going through the routine.  Other days I am living. Being in the moment. Mindful of those everyday little things which bring joy and love. 
What are some of your favorite quotes?

It's a good thing I've read Anna Karenina once before and basically know what's going to happen because these endnotes give it all away! I'm not even halfway and the endnotes already told me the ending 🙄
.

Do you read the endnotes as they appear or wait until the end of the paragraph, chapter, never? I try to wait until a natural break. Sometimes I just skip them altogether. .

Happy Tuesday! 😃 We're having a chilly, rainy April afternoon so I'm getting chores done around the house. .
.
In other fun news, I'm planning on reading Moby Dick for the first time with my reading buddy group! I'm a little intimidated, but mostly excited. It's one of those badge-of-honor reads, an accomplishment for sure! My plan is to rotate between the book and audiobook to help with the slower parts. .

QOTD: have you read Moby Dick? What book have you read that was a badge-of-honor? 😊

What are some of your favorite classic novels? These are a few of mine, and I am still just so in love with covers too.
❤️📚❤️
I am also still in love with all of these prints from @bookbestiesuk . Today’s #READGUSHMERCH18  is classics merch, and I don’t really have a lot of merch to rep my favorite classics but I think these gorgeous sleeves pair nicely. You can use MEL10 for a discount when you shop with her.

"I beg you will bring me a rose; I love that flower passionately, and since I have lived in this desert I have not had the pleasure of seeing one."
-
We're all familiar with Disney's version of Beauty and the Beast but how many of us know the original tale written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740? Certainly not me. So you can imagine how surprised I was when I found out how little similarities these two versions hold.
-
With that said, I did not read the original tale with a preconceived notion that it's going to be similar to Disney's version. I did not read it with the intention to compare both versions. Yet, I have to say I much prefer Disney's version after finishing this book. The Disney characters that we've become so familiar with—Gaston, LeFou, Lumière, Cogsworth, Mrs Potts, Chip—none of them were in the original tale! Instead, we get fairies. Lots and lots of fairies, fairy politics and alluring dreams.
-
We do not get much interaction between the Beast and Beauty too. In fact, they only interact for an hour (I think?) during dinner every night, with the Beast asking Beauty to marry him; while she dreaded that hour every night because she found him dull and stupid. Their relationship doesn't actually develop beyond that. In addition, Beauty was pretty shallow when you compare her to Belle.
-
There was a ton of backstory in the second half which was literally an info-dump! It just kept dragging the story out and I had to force myself to read on. I found the translation extremely dry too, which did not help. The only saving grace was the illustration despite not being a big fan of the style. All in all, not a fan of the moral of the story, especially the backstory which undermined Beauty's decision to marry Beast. 3/5⭐

This is my plan for tonight: beauty sleep 💤 Especially after my brief but tiring weekend that can be summed up in emojis: ⛵️🌊🤢🤮☕️👩🏻‍💻
•
•
This @spireside room spray is PERFECT for going to bed, because it’s so fresh! If you’re a scent-fiend (like me) who has to have a room spray or candle or wax warmer around at ALL TIMES to smell something (guys, I literally have 2 candles burning right now, a @spireside room spray that I’ve misted, and a wax warmer going 😆🤷🏻‍♀️), then LOOK INTO THESE DELICIOUS SPRAYS! And use BANDAR10 for 10% off your order because I’ve got your back 😏👌

If you’re a scent-fiend (like me) who has to have a room spray or candle or wax warmer around at ALL TIMES to smell something (guys, I literally have 2 candles burning right now, a @spireside room spray that I’ve misted, and a wax warmer going 😆🤷🏻‍♀️), then LOOK INTO THESE DELICIOUS SPRAYS! And use BANDAR10 for 10% off your order because I’ve got your back 😏👌 • • • #instabooks  #igreads  #bookcommunity  #candleshop  #homemadecandles  #booklovers  #bookaholics  #bookshelves  #beautifulbooks  #bibliophile  #bookish  #supportsmall  #spiresidecandles  #supportsmallshops  #amreading  #bookstack  #bookishcandles  #ilovebooks  #bookspines  #classicliterature  #classiclit  #supportsmallbusinesses  #beautysleep  #roomspray  #spireside  #sleepingbeauties  #bookshelves  #bookshelfie  #shuteye

Sadly the sun has disappeared and I couldn't walk to the park to read today. It's been so nice to be outside a little more and I can't wait until it's warmer. For now, I'll have to read inside and get cosy ☔📚

I'm hoping to finish both of the books in these pictures by this evening but we will have to wait and see...

This is probably another #unpopularopinion - I do seem to have a lot of them - but I'm not really a fan of Alice in Wonderland 😕 I don't know why. It's just never really grabbed me, not as a child or an adult. But for #geekyglowreadsfantasy I'd definitely go with the Queen of Hearts over the Mad Hatter. This teeny adorable Queen of Hearts candle came from @paperflamescandleco Fierce Foes box and smells completely deliciously edible!

The Bard's birthday deserves a bit of cross-gartering....work it Malvolio, work it! .
.
This is part of my Classic Literature collection, all done using free motion machine embroidery. I'm busy sketching away new additions to join the Brontes, Austen and Lewis Carroll etc. that I've already tried to capture in stitch. You can see more by visiting my shop link in my @loadofolbobbins profile. 👍

Is there a book you feel like everyone has read but you?
.
For me, it’s Great Expectations! I’ve started it twice, really enjoyed it, and then I lost interest. 😂 I do plan to read it through this year though! 💪🏻

Here’s a special shout out to my dear friend Elsa (@mooncatcher) who sent me this edition of Frankenstein! She is such a wonderful person and her account is beautiful, so I would love it if you checked out her feed. 💕

Who has read MOBY DICK? 🙋🏻‍♀️ And more importantly... who actually liked it? 🐳
•
•
In case you didn’t see my stories, we officially got our feet wet (figuratively) sailing yesterday! ⛵️
•
•
We are super excited about it... but next time we definitely need to go into it with stronger drugs- the seasickness is no joke 🤢
•
•
 Anyway, my husband can’t stop talking about it and I basically feel like I have a budding Captain Ahab as a spouse. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing 🤔

‘To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.’ ~ Oscar Wilde
Hey awesome book nerds 🤓
Meet Oscar Wilde. His life is ending.

The year is 1898. Wilde's reputation is in ruins.

After the scandal, after the trial, and after the incarceration at Reading Gaol, Wilde lives in precarious exile in Paris. His friends urge him to start another great work, a new play or poem. But Wilde's attention is elsewhere: on the mysteries of art, on the demands of love, and on a final great flowering of the spirit.

As y’all know I’m a huge fan of #classicliterature  This #historicalfiction book is a treasure.  The writing style is a flash back to the prose of the masters. #johnvanderslice has captured the essence of Wilde himself and those around him.  It is agonizingly heartbreaking to read as Oscar fades away. This book truly humanizes the man, showing both the good and bad. It’s a wonderful book for any Wilde fan. 
Thanks to @tlcbooktours for sending me this gem. *
*
*
The above quote of Wilde’s always hits home with me. Someday I feel like I am just existing, going through the routine.  Other days I am living. Being in the moment. Mindful of those everyday little things which bring joy and love. 
What are some of your favorite quotes?

I've been working in London again the past two days. I'm exhausted but at least it means I've been able to do a lot of reading on the train. It's always been one of my favourite places to read. Where's yours? 📚 #everymanslibrary #everymanspocketclassics #shelfie #bookcollection #bookshop #waterstones #classiclit #classicliterature #bookish #bookworm #bookstagram
A few weeks ago, I spent a few days in New York City for the second time this year. And I picked up a few books at the Strand because why not? A few of these were new to me. The others I’d read before and wanted to own.

How do you all feel about the sea? I am obsessed 😍 but I know some people find it a bit scary 🌊
•

Today’s #shelfiesunday is a little nautical 🧜🏼‍♀️ because my husband and I are (finally) starting our sailing lessons!!! ⛵️
Today will just be an introductory course. We’ll be taking the official American Sailing School courses after this one 👏

The set pictured here is 'Favorite Jane Austen Novels by  Dover Thrift which includes Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion - Another discovery I got to made during random browsing on Amazon 🤓 (I did come across quite a lot of other editions as well last week which I felt interesting, but for some reason less popular on #bookstagram)
This was available for a quite cheap price being paperbacks maybe? Anyways as I received it, the bookcovers weren't as in the product description 🙄 It had to be floral similar to the box cover😪! Disappointed ofcourse and decided to return it (but yeah only after taking some pictures 😜)
.
.
Plans for Sunday anyone?
I am watching 'The middle' one of my favourite series 😀
Can you guess my favourite character(s)?

As a child my world was books, I’m #4 of 7 children in my family, and often when people learn that they do two things. 1) widen their eyes in surprise at such a large family, and 2) nod their head as of to say “it all makes sense now, she’s a middle child”
🌼
As “the forgotten child” I could read a book a day, and I often would. I don’t mean that I was neglected by anyone, but just very quiet, and out of sight, because I was reading. As an adult, I’ve begun to collect those books that gave me my childhood. When I saw a chance to own this set of books, I leaped at it, and cried joyful tears when the package arrived and I added them to my shelves.
🌼
As Rory so eloquently puts it “I live in two worlds. One is a world of books...It’s a rewarding world, but my second one is by far superior....” If you could live in a book world, where would you go?

“We must remember what ruthless and utter destruction our own species has wrought, not only upon animals, such as vanished bison and the dodo, but upon its own inferior races. The Tasmanians . . . were entirely swept out of existence in a war of extermination waged by European immigrants, in the space if fifty years. Are we such apostles of mercy as to complain if the Martians warred in the same spirit?” ― H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds

Happy birthday to the unparalleled Charlotte Brontë! I first read Jane Eyre as a teenager and I’ve read it twice since—each time I fall in love with the story just a little bit more.
.
I think I might celebrate by watching the 2006 adaptation with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens, which is by far my favorite. 🖤

Charlotte Bronte was born on this day in 1816 🎉🎉 I recently read Jane Eyre (for the first time! 😱😱) And it really was such an amazing book. It is so atmospheric and and the prose is like poetry it's so pretty. Not to mention Jane herself is an awesome, strong character. I'm glad I finally got around to reading it.  Any other Charlotte Bronte fans out there? What should my next read be? .

It's Saturday! May your days be filled with books and laziness! Unless you have things to do; then may your days be productive! .

Happy Birthday to Charlotte Bronte, born on this day in 1816.⠀

The eldest of the three Bronte sisters, Charlotte was the driving force behind the publication of the sisters' works. Her novel Jane Eyre revolutionized the art of the novel with its intimate and emotional portrayal of the private consciousness of its eponymous heroine.⠀

Currer Bell, or Charlotte Bronte born on this day 202 years ago. The eldest out of the three famous Bronte sisters whose novels have become standards of English Literature. Jane Eyre was the first heroine I knew which I fell in love immediately and the first classic lit book i bought. It is still my favorite untill today.

Decline and Fall by Evelyn Waugh | Little, Brown; 1977. 
Some more Evelyn Waugh for you, a later reprint of his 1923 novel. I like these editions, and Waugh is one of those writers to read everything by. 
Evelyn Waugh’s first wife was also named Evelyn. As far as I can tell, his name was pronounced Ee-vlin while hers was Eva-lyn.

Thank goodness this cover is pretty, because that’s basically all this book has going for it as far as I’m concerned 😑

Listened to the CALL OF THE WILD on audio as part of my “one classic per month” dealio, and let’s just say it wasn’t my favorite... 😆 click the link in my bio to see why I gave one star to dog 🐶

Did you see that there is a new Little Women adaptation that airs on PBS May 13th 8:00 pm? #classiclit #booktomovie #adaptation #willyouwatch?
I’m a pretty indecisive person, and when it comes to picking my favorite book, well that’s really hard. My default answer is Anne of Green Gables, but sometimes I wonder if that’s really true.
.
Today I had such an Anne moment when I stepped outside into the garden area of our yard, with the sun beginning to lower in the sky, and the feeling of spring almost tangible around me.
.
I thought, yes, Anne is my favorite book and heroine for the optimism, hope, and perseverance she inspires. For her love of nature and reminding me to go outside and look at the pure beauty of our world. For her love of learning and exploring and being and living. And for the special feeling of coming home whenever I open the book for a reread.

Are you able to pick a favorite book? What is it that makes a book your favorite?
