I‘m back!! I just finished reading #RoyalAssassin by #RobinHobb. Absolutely loved reading this, although it had a slow start, the ending was definitely worth the wait! Cannot wait to start #AssassinsQuest which is winging its way to me as we speak 🎉 #Fantasy #AssassinsApprentice #WolvesHaveNoKings 🐺

I got my beautiful special edition of The Book of Dust Volume 1 a couple of days ago and I am so in love with it ❤️❤️❤️ #CoverLove I have started reading it and already cannot put it down! #BookOfDust #PhilipPullman #Clothbound #SpecialEdition #HisDarkMaterials I hope they do the next two in the trilogy like this or I am going to be very upset! ✨✨✨

The Art of Love | Ovid, Rolfe Humphries
post image

While we are on the subject of Ovid, this is the dust jacket of a beautiful book I bought a few days ago! #CoverLove ❤️ I think this is the prettiest Vintage Classic I have ever seen and I had no idea they came in hardbacks (?) will be on the look out for more! #Ovid #Love #Classics #TheArtOfLove #Vintage

Thought I would share my battered copy of Ovid's Metamorphoses, it has colour coded tabs in it for easy access to the bits I need for my masters thesis. 📖 I am only kind of okay with breaking the spines and writing in etc. in school/uni books, is that odd?? #Ovid #Classics #Masters #Metamorphoses #Chaos #Rome

kathedron I've still got my Latin edition from twenty years ago: I couldn't persuade myself to part with it. 2y
TheBookselvesOfMillie @River_Voice that is amazing! I don't think I will ever part with any of mine 2y
mariaku21 My copy was passed down by my older siblings so there's notes all over it. It's great to see their opinions in different pens and handwriting. 2y
TheBookselvesOfMillie @mariaku21 that is so nice to see all their thoughts! I don't think any of my scribbles would make sense! I have studied this book twice and there are a couple of pages I wrote in the first time round and I haven't got much clue as to what I meant 😂😂 it was years ago! (edited) 2y
mariaku21 @TheBookselvesOfMillie I can't read some of their notations, my older brother has atrocious handwriting. One sister wrote everything in shorthand and the other wrote in pencil and some of it faded. 2y

Still a child at heart ❤️ I have picked up David Benedictus' sequel to the amazing work of A. A. Milne. They have recently (ish) come out in new editions for the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh and I plan on collecting the whole set! AND they are filled with the lovely illustrations of Mark Burgess, which are inspired and are in close keeping with those of E. H. Shepard in the original tales!🐝🍯🐻 #AAMilne #Pooh #Piglet #Eeyore #Tigger #Honey

Cinfhen Love ❤️ 2y

This is another short book, and is about what it says on the cover! It is really easy to read and interesting to learn about the trial of a book in the 1960s, definitely recommend if you are just looking for some light non-fiction reading 📖 #CoverLove #DHLawrence #LadyChatterly #Trial #Law

Just read this short story by J.R.R. Tolkien 🌿 a very cute read, especially when you are sat under a tree in the sun! 🌞 the cover features a beautiful sketch #CoverLove The story is quaint and draws many parallels with Tolkien's life at the time of writing, it is a wonderfully curious journey 🍄 #Tolkien #LeafByNiggle #ShortStory #ReliefFromTheDissertation

Bedtime reads!! 🎉😴🐲 I tried to find the cover to match my Temeraire copy (first book in this series) but sadly the seller I bought this one and the third book off had the right picture displayed but this was what arrived in the post 😓 I am too excited to continue the story to care too much right now, but if I happen to bump into the other one on my book travels then... #Dragons #4Lyf #ThroneOfJade #NaomiNovik

GondorGirl I hate when that happens! At least you'll be able to buy a matching cover later on. Enjoy your book! 2y
TheBookselvesOfMillie @GondorGirl me too!! Yes will definitely be on the look out for them! 2y

This is one of my favourite books ever. The storyline is amazing and it is beautifully written, you can almost feel the humid climate of Malaysia. You are never quite sure what turn the book will take next. I highly recommend this book and, I mean, it has gold foil on it so there is #CoverLove too! 💗 I look forward to reading A Gift of Rain soon #TanTwanEng #TheGardenOfTheEveningMists

GondorGirl I don't need another copy of this book... I don't need another copy of this book... I don't... 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 One of my favorites! I read this with almost all my kiddos too! I highly recommend the graphic novel too. This cover is gorgeous 2y
TheBookselvesOfMillie @GondorGirl you can never have too many! Especially if they are all as beautiful as this one! 2y

TheBookselvesOfMillie @ForeverNerdy I will have to check the graphic novel out then!! 2y
GondorGirl @TheBookselvesOfMillie The graphic was illustrated by David Wenzel and is absolutely beautiful. The artist is also one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. 2y
TheBookselvesOfMillie @GondorGirl that sounds awesome, will check it out now! 😃 2y

Who else is excited about this coming out soon?!?! 😱 I got this teeny tiny preview from Waterstones the other day. I absolutely love the His Dark Materials trilogy, so cannot wait to read this companion trilogy!! 💗 #PhilipPullman #HisDarkMaterials #BookOfDust #TBR #HighlyAnticipated

This is a lovely book, an easy read and beautifully laid out. And I mean just look at the cover! #CoverLove This book takes you through Greek and Roman mythology, it gives you low down of who is related to who, and what each god rules over. It has some great illustrations that bring the book to life, along with some pictures of "modern" (in relation to these ancient gods) art associated with them. A great beginner to mythology! #Mythology #Dreamy

There is nothing more satisfying than having a well kept bookshelf, I admit I often procrastinate by re-arranging them. These are the handful of books that are keeping me company while I complete my masters 💗📚 #Shelfie #Procrastination #UniBookSelf (I'm studying Classics so that is why there are a load of those kinds of books on the top shelf there...)
