Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
Sorry for being MIA this past week but things have been hectic with exams and packing. Why packing? Because I'm flying to Germany tomorrow!! ✈️ I'm going there with some of my best friends to take part in a choir competition in Wernigerode. I will try and post as much as I can but things may get rough with all the travel as well as preparing for the competition. I am excited to visit some new bookstores!😱
Happy reading 📚

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
Is anyone else busy with exams? I'm writing Chemistry on Monday (which I hate) 😓 so now I'm stuck reading my school books, which seem to be the only books I don't like 🙈 any type of books you guys don't like?
Happy reading 📚

catebutler Best of luck on your exams!! 🤞🏼 7y
JoRead Good luck! I'm not too fond of auto-biographies and school books if it's a subject I don't enjoy 😉 7y

High.Lady.of.Books Thank you! @JoRead and I must say, autobiographies aren't my favourite either 🙈 7y
Literaryfairy6603 I just finished my exams a few weeks ago... I agree with you that school books generally are no fun to read (probably because of all the analyzing)... good luck!! 7y

Chocolat. Joanne Harris | Joanne Harris

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
So this is a rare case where I don't have a favourite when it comes to book vs movie even though they are quite different. Chocolat was fantastic as a book and amazing as a movie. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Johnny Depp starred in it? 🤔 has this happened to you? 🌸
Happy reading 📚

Smangela The BFG! I thought it was done so beautifully 😍 It's my favorite childhood book so I had high expectations and I think Steven Spielberg did it great justice! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I agree 🙋🏻 @Smangela I loved the movie and the book 🙈 7y
catebutler I loved both the movie and the book with this. I actually tend to like both, even when quite a bit different. Unless it is poorly done. Now, I want to watch the movie! 🎥 🍿 7y

High.Lady.of.Books Me too 🍿 I've watched it sooo long ago I definitely need a movie night 👍🏻 @catebutler 7y
CreateExploreRead Oh I have to agree. The movie was great and so was the book! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books It's quite rare for me to like both, I usually prefer the book, so I absolutely adore this story 💃🏻 @CreateExploreRead 7y
AmandaL Same! Loved the movie and the book. 7y
High.Lady.of.Books So glad I'm not the only one 🙈😅 @AmandaL 7y
CreateExploreRead Agreed!!! 7y
KathyWheeler They are very different, and I too loved them both. 7y
High.Lady.of.Books The movie was a great adaptation yet the story was different and unique, I love that about it 🙈 @KathyWheeler 7y

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
The Divergent trilogy is one of my favourite dystopian series's. Is it just me, or are almost all dystopians a trilogy? 😅 I read these some years ago and devoured each book the moment they came out. I am quite disappointed with the movies though. Let me know which faction you guys belong to 🙌🏻 I'm probably part of Erudite 🙈
Happy reading 📚

High.Lady.of.Books I know 🙈 they're my favourite @heytheredeonna 7y
BookishMouse I think I'm Amity! I also really loved the Four book. 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I loved it too 🙋🏻 @BookishMouse It was so cool to read about his past 7y
BookishMouse @High.Lady.of.Books I really enjoyed his perspective. 7y
Smangela Love the cover art of these 😍 I hate a love/hate relationship with this trilogy haha 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I have a lave relationship with the books and a hate relationship witht the movies 🙈 @Smangela 7y
Bookish.Taylor I loved the first book! Liked the second, and could have done without the last. The movies need to burn! I feel like I would have been Amity. 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I must say, the last book was my least favourite. 🙈 @Bookish.Taylor 7y
Smangela @High.Lady.of.Books I hear that! I didn't even watch past the first. I like Shailene Woodley but they changed too much! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I didn't even recognise the book in the last movie 😐 @Smangela 7y
HollieTurner Erudite for me 😊 7y

"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."

Hi fellow bookworms ??
So I don't know about you guys but I really struggle to enjoy a book when I've seen the movie first. That is unfortunately the case with The Great Gatsby even though it is an amazing book ? Now I've made it a rule to never watch the movie before I read the book ? any movies spoiled a good book for you guys? Let me know!?
Happy reading ?

inked.delights Ooh that's a shame! The book is almost always better than the movie 😬 this is also true in the case of The Great Gatsby, although I really enjoyed the movie 😊 Leo played his role so well! And yes.. I've already seen Cloud Atlas but I would have liked to read the book first.. 😔 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I know! I just hate to know what happens in a book, I love all the twists and turns a story has 😊 and I agree, Leo was perfect for the role 🙋🏻 @inked.delights 7y
inked.delights @High.Lady.of.Books Old sport 😏😏 7y

RiddlesReviews My mom is the exact opposite! She says she would never want to read a book before seeing the movie because it would "spoil the movie"!!! Crazy, right? 7y
High.Lady.of.Books Quite 😂 @RiddlesReviews I would rather have a movie of two hours spoiled than the whole journey of reading and discovering the story 🙈 7y
RiddlesReviews @High.Lady.of.Books that's what I said! Who knows how long it will take to finish the book. A movie is quick in comparison. 7y
High.Lady.of.Books Precisely! @RiddlesReviews Great minds think alike 🙋🏻 7y
Bookwormeverlasting Same! I have to read the book first 7y

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
Some late night reading while I'm supposed to be stydying for my exam on Thursday 😅 I loved this book the first time I read it and I am not surprised to find it just as good the second time around. Reading is probably one of my favourite things to do while procrastinating 🤓 anyone as guilty as I am?
Happy reading 📚

#book #coffee #bookish #bookworm #bookaholic #bibliophile #procrastination #booksy

BookishMarginalia No guilt! I call that productive procrastination 😉🤓 7y
TheMuggleBornReader I'm studying at the moment. With my book just sitting next to me, screaming and begging for me to read 😂 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I like that! @BookishMarginalia Will have to adopt that phrase 🙋🏻🙈 7y

High.Lady.of.Books Same here @TheMuggleBornReader why is it that I love to read yet hate my school books? 😅 7y
Bookwormeverlasting Everyday! Lol. I should be washing the dishes but I'd rather read 7y
petitepages Same here! I think I read more books during finals week when I was procrastinating then I have my whole summer break😂 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I think I read at my best when I'm not supposed to read 🤔 @petitepages Maybe because it's not allowed that makes it so much more enticing and enjoyable 😂 7y
ludreadsbooks Same 😂😂 7y
Alytrue One of my favorites as well. Sadly, when my daughter had to read it for school last year she didn't care for it😱. She much preferred Huck Finn🤔 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I haven't read Huck Finn yet, sounds like I need to give it a go 🙈 @Alytrue 7y
High.Lady.of.Books Glad I'm not the only one @ludreadsbooks 🙋🏻😂 7y
Rachel_R._Smith Reading and cleaning are my #1 choices for procrastination. So when my house is really clean, you know I'm putting *something* off. 😂 7y
Chocomeiske Read this in high school and haven't read it since... 7y
High.Lady.of.Books @Chocomeiske It's just as good the second tome around 🙌🏻 you pick up on ekstra details 7y

The Night Circus | Erin Morgenstern
post image

"The circus arrives without warning."

Hi fellow bookworms ??
Finished The Night Circus last night and absolutely loved it. It's unique atmosphere and beautiful writing made it a joy to read. Even though it is a slow burner, it kept my attention from start to finish. Don't know about you guys but this book made me seriously crave caramel popcorn ?
Happy reading ?

inked.delights Loved the Night Circus! 🎪 and omg yesss if I'm going to reread it, I'm definitely going to eat caramel popcorn while reading 😍 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I love eating snacks while reading and popcorn is definitely one of my favourites 🙋🏻🌸 @inked.delights 7y

Merethebookgal Loved this book! And I agree about the popcorn 😋 7y
High.Lady.of.Books I think I'll have to do a reread soon as I'm already missing the circus 🙈🎪 @Merethebookgal (edited) 7y
BenefitsOfBeingABookaholic I love this book sooo much!!! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books It's become one of my favourite books 🙋🏻💃🏻 @BenefitsOfBeingABookaholic 7y
BenefitsOfBeingABookaholic Nice!! Have you read caraval? It has a similar kind of feel to the night circus @High.Lady.of.Books 7y
High.Lady.of.Books Not yet @BenefitsOfBeingABookaholic It's right at the top of my TBR 🙈 I don't know why but Carval is so much more expensive than any other books in the bookstore, so I'm saving to buy it while also waiting for the price to drop 😅 7y
BenefitsOfBeingABookaholic Ah nice! It's quite a pretty book which maybe is why it's more expensive 😁 7y
catebutler So glad you enjoyed this! It is one of my favorite books! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books It has definitely become one of my favourites too 🙌🏻 @catebutler 7y

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien
post image

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
The Hobbit is a fantastic book that I enjoyed immensely (even though I have not read The Lord of the Rings yet). This story about adventure and stepping outside of your comfort zone is a fun read that keeps your attention throughout.
Happy reading 📚

#bookish #bookworm #candles #book #red #bookaholic #bibliophile #white #vsco

emmekamalei Yes! The Hobbit is the best place to start with Tolkien. 😊 You definitely gotta read LOTR next also! 7y
High.Lady.of.Books That's the plan @emmekamalei I'm very excited to get started 💃🏻😊 7y
MrBook All the streets in my neighborhood have Middle Earth names. 😁👌🏻 7y

Hi fellow bookworms 🙋🏻
So to start this exciting new journey on Litsy, I decided that my first post should definitely be one of my favourite reads. This is an amazing book that definitely influenced my way of thinking. I hope this book will mean as much to you as it does to me.
