“I watched her while she swept up the glass; today would be a glittering day, full of tiny sparkling things.” I have no idea what took me so long to read this book, it‘s just so beautifully macabre! Has anyone else read it? It‘s going to be made into a movie soon, which should be interesting. #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #macabre #wehavealwayslivedinthecastle #shirleyjackson #penguinedition

Happy Independence Day America! On this day in 1776 Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence (the signing wouldn't happen for another month). Colonial history has always been my favorite in American history, with Lafayette being one of my favorites - such an adorable little Frenchman! #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #independenceday #fourthofjuly #americanhistory #usa

Les Misrables | Victor Hugo

So google just informed me that today is the anniversary of the completion of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Unpopular opinion: Javert is my favorite. #bookstagram #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #lesmiserables #lesmis #victorhugo #javert

chroniclesofabookworm Javert is my favorite too! 😍 6y

Paddington | Michael Bond
post image

Paddington Bear was one of the first series I remember my father reading to me, with its complex sentence structures and big words. (What other children's story uses the word "emigrated" in the first chapter?) Michael Bond helped to shape my early literacy in a way that no other author could have. Rest In Peace sir. #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #paddingtonbear #paddington #michaelbond #rip #orangemarmalade #pleaselookafterthisbear

Now let me tell you a little story, I wasn't into HP as a kid. My mom bought me the first book in '97 out of the $1 bin. I read it and saw the ending coming when we were introduced to Quirrell. It wasn't until I met my best friend in college that I gave them another go. They are not part of my childhood, but these books will always be a part of that summer.And I can say that I am proud to be a Gryffindor! #bookster #bookish #harrypotter #jkrowling

The Buried Giant: A novel | Kazuo Ishiguro
post image

It was a long and amazing day at the Celtic Fling, but now I'm going to curl up with The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. Has anyone ever read this author before? Thoughts? #bookstagram #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #theburiedgiant #kazuoishiguro #authorianlegend

Exhibited an extreme amount of control in the bargain book store and only walked out with two $1 books. Still struggling with the lighting in this motel room. #bookstagram #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #thepeopleinthetrees #hanyayanagihara #charlesdickens #dickens #greatexpectations #barginbooks

Love this Secular Saints candle! "Patron Saint of cross-dressers, star-crossed lovers, and upstart crows." Walking into that bookshop in Litiz was such a good idea! Now I'm fighting with the lighting in this motel room. #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #shakespeare #williamshakespeare #secularsaints #candle #secularsaintscandles

I am so incredibly pleased with this book! It was like Naomi Novik took the best of Master and Commander and combined it with Marie Brennan's series. Dragons + Napoleonic War = Awesome! I will definitely be continuing the series. Looking forward to forcing my dad to listen to the audiobook on our roadtrip this weekend. #hismajestysdragon #naominovik #audiobook #bookish #booklove #booknerd #dragons #temeraire

I'm nearly finished reading His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik. I'm really loving it! I first read Uprooted and was so impressed by it that I decided to jump feet first into Novik's series. Also my Page Anchor came today! It's already so useful. #bookster #pageanchor #naominovik #hismajestysdragon #bookish #temeraire
