Wrapping up my #QuillClub GoT challenge today. What's your favorite book in the series or season of the show? I think I have to say this one is mine.

Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur

Have you read Milk and Honey yet? Really such a wonderful, powerful poetry collection. I was inspired to make this honey chai iced latte by the title and the poems inside. You can find the simple recipe over on my blog if you'd like to try it for yourself! The link to my site is in my profile. 🙂🍯🐝🐝

"Moon-letters are rune-letters, but you cannot see them," said Elrond, "not when you look straight at them. They can only be seen when the moon shines behind them, and what is more, with the more cunning sort it must be a moon of the same shape and season as the day when they were written. The dwarves invented them and wrote them with silver pens... These must have been written on a midsummer's eve in a crescent moon, a long while ago."

Under the Tuscan Sun | Frances Mayes
post image

It's the first day of summer and I'm just about to start reading Under the Tuscan Sun. Which, to me, seems quite perfect. Have you read it? What did you think? I love the film but have heard they're quite different. Very much looking forward to something new!

Jess_Read_This One of my most favorite authors. The book is quite different than the movie 🎥 😂Mayes joked about the movie version of her's love life being far more active on film than real life. (edited) 2y
caskandquill @Jess_Read_This Haha, that's great! 😂 2y
jfalkens I love the book, haven't seen the movie yet 2y
caskandquill @jfalkens Looks like we're opposites in this then! Let's watch/read and compare notes. 😂 2y
jfalkens @caskandquill lol I'll have to see if Hulu, Netflix or my library has it 😊 2y

Talking about Bilbo as an inspiring character today and this week here, on IG (@caskandquill) and on the blog (link in bio). To me, he's inspiring because of his bravery and his caring heart. He heads off into the unknown even when he's more comfortable at home with his pantry and his handkerchief. Partly, he does this to help others and also because of a little "something Tookish" that awakes in him. Here's to one of my favorite adventurers!

Katpie1701 This is such a great pic! 😍 2y
caskandquill @Katpie1701 Thank you so much! ☺️💚 2y
TheWhiteHatter I am so in love with this whole picture, especially the picture of Bilbo! The Hobbit is one of my all time favorite books! 2y
caskandquill @TheWhiteHatter Thank you so much! 🙂 Same here! One of my most favorites (if not THE favorite). Such a charming and welcoming story. 2y

"There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after."

This quote really is speaking to me lately. I've had some revelations in my life recently that seem rather simple on the outside, but will hopefully have quite an impact on me. Trust one of my favorite books to continue to give me wisdom! ? #TolkienTribe #Tolkien #TheHobbit

soulsfiredesigns One of my favorite things about Tolkien, there's always more to glean no matter how many times I read his books 💚 2y
MrBook Nice pic! Another candle for @BookBabe to need 😆. 2y
caskandquill @MrBook Thanks! And I feel that, @BookBabe, my collection is OUT of control!!! 😂 2y

This is taking me forever to read, but I am so enjoying it! I've been reading less this month (a well-deserved break, I say!) and, let's face it, this book is long as hell! 😂 I'm nearing the midpoint and every page is increasing my anticipation for the show's return to HBO. 😍

soulsfiredesigns That one took me so long! It was worth it though! 2y
caskandquill @soulsfiredesigns Okay, good, I'm not the only one! 😂 And yes, it's totally not for lack of interest. Loving it! 2y
soulsfiredesigns Martin is kind of that way for me, his books are so intense it just takes me longer, I need extra time to absorb it all 🤔. But definitely worth the struggle!!! 2y
