These novellas are probably the best prequel of a series I've ever read. Like, HOW can anyone not like The Assassin's Blade? It gives so much depth to Celaena's character and we get to know so much but her past is still so mysterious and ughhhh Celaena suffered so much (but then when you think of the end of EoS...) and she's also as badass as ever 😂.
.
Which story is your favourite out of all five? I think The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, The Assassin and the Desert and The Assassin and the Empire are my favourite. If I had to choose only one I'd probably choose... um... idk I can't choose 😂.
.
But arghhhhhhh SAAAAAMMMMMM 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭. We all know who to blame 😡😤😡😤😡😤😡😤😡. Also while I was reading TAB I was reminded of how young Celaena was in the beginning (she was my age now) like it just struck me that going to school is nothing compared to the things she did (haha well duh I'm not an assassin) but you know what I mean. My life is so uneventful 😂.

“ This was why love was so dangerous. Love turn the whole world into a garden, so beguiling it was easy to forget that rose petals were as ephemeral as feelings, eventually they would wilt and die, leaving nothing but the thorns. ”

How do you sway on The House-Elf Liberation Front?
____________________________
⠀⠀
#QOTD: Had you been a student with Hermione Granger, would you have joined the force and fought to free the elves or would you agree with Hagrid and just let the elves be for fear of doing irreparable damage like that done to Winky � ⠀⠀
____________________________
⠀⠀
There is an interesting article on @pottermore’s website, titled “To S.P.E.W or Not To S.P.E.W” that is worth reading and debates both sides of the issue. ⠀⠀
Indeed there are elves like Kreacher, who wouldn’t dream of being set free, but there are surely more elves like Dobby who crave better treatment and their independence.

⠀⠀
Lastly, this is the end of the #hufflepuffaesthetic grid and I’ll be moving onto the next grid soon!

Hey #bookfriends .
.
Hope everyone is enjoying this fine day. .
.
I have to say that How the Marquis Got His Coat Back is a gem. I read the whole short story today. It is now my favourite Neil Gaiman story, I know it doesn’t look like much being a mere fifty-eight pages but it was such an enjoyable read. I am glad I got to read a book that focused on my favourite character from Neverwhere - The Marquis De Carabas.
.
.
I give it 5 ⭐️’s.

#bookreadhappyhour Day 15: Mid-month #wrapup. I’ve only finished two books so far this month, but I’m working on #s three and four. So far my ratings are:
After Alice ⭐️⭐️ (I’m afraid I’ll never understand Gregory Maguire’s writing or his appeal)
Theft of Swords ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I can’t believe August is halfway over!

#grimdragon Day 15: Bookmail is the best mail! Here are my most recent #bookmail acquisitions. I’m a firm believer (and practitioner) of reading the book before watching the movie, and I want to see Crazy Rich Asians, so I bought the book and will start it this week. I came across Master Assassins at Barnes and Noble and knew I had to get it eventually!

Hello everyone! 😄 🌟
I've had a couple of wonderful reading days this past week mostly because of taking part in the #25infive readathon. I managed to start and finish three books; Anne of Green gables, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island. (I still can't believe I didn't read this series earlier. I'm mega annoyed with my young self) have you read them? What are your thoughts? I plan on finishing the series this month because my semester finals start on 1st September ughhhh. 🌟

Persuasion and Lady Susan are my absolute favourite Austen reads. I love all of them of course but one can't help having prefrences 😄 Have you read Jane Austen? Your favourite? 🌟

It was Pakistan's Independence day yesterday and it was a lot of fun at my end! 🌟

I just finished my 23rd book of this year. I’m sort of behind schedule but I think I can just about manage to hit my goal of 50 books by the end of the year.
It’s been raining all week long. Makes for perfect reading weather. Nothing like a cup of tea and a good book. Speaking of which:
-
-
QOTD: how do you choose what book you’re going to read next? Do you go online and read reviews? Do you ask a friend to suggest something? Or do you, like me, stare at your shelves for countless minutes looking at those numerous spines, until you can almost hear a book calling out to you, asking to be read. Sometimes I read the first couple of pages before deciding to stay with a certain novel. -
-
I just started That Thing Around your Neck. I absolutely adored Americanah and Adiche’s other writings. So I’m excited to delve into this book of short stories. Flawless language and interesting characters never fail to excite me! -

You’re on the train to Hogwarts and the Honeydukes Express has stopped at your compartment. Do you: ⠀⠀
① Pull a Ron and grab one of everything on the menu
② Select a pumpkin pasty and The Daily Prophet to read on your journey, or
③ Skip the trolley cart because you don’t want to spoil the feast awaiting you at Hogwarts Castle
____________________________

I took this shot a couple months ago when I visited my sister and we spent the day on the train through Royal Gorge. It was certainly no Hogwarts Express, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Time to update my O.W.L's. (& if you're doing N.E.W.T's tell me where you're at.) August feels like the longest month ever. Basically still have 2.5 weeks to go but I keep thinking it's almost over. .
.
Ancient Runes: Sons of Thestian (half way).
Arithmancy: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
Astronomy: Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy✔️.
Care of Magical Creatures: They Grey Bastards✔️.
Charms: Children of Blood and Bone✔️.
Defense Against the Dark Arts: The Little Friend✔️.
Divination: The Song of Achilles✔️.
Herbology: Mushroom at the End of the World.
History of Magic: Hild.
Muggle Studies: In Search of Mary Shelley.
Potions: Madame Frankenstien✔️.
Transfiguration: When Fox is 1000✔️. .
.
7 down 5 to go. I am loving this challenge. In a way I think I've read faster than intended but I sadly didn't get to do much for 25 in Five. Assignments come first. Can't wait to do my N.E.W.T's over Sept & Oct. .

#grimdragon Day 14: Debut authors. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Children of Blood and Bone. I’m a huge fan of YA, but the idea of an African-based fantasy really appeals to me. It’s on the TBR for next year, so we’ll see how it goes!
📖✨
#bookreadhappyhour: This is heavy. For a YA novel, this book is surprisingly thick!

In my opinion, Robin Hood was a #hufflepuff. He might have stolen from the rich, but he gave it all to the poor and he was just, loyal, adventurous, and lived in the woods. Now, living in the woods doesn’t necessarily a Hufflepuff make, BUT I feel like of the three other houses, ‘puffs might just be the most outdoorsy. ⠀⠀

#bookstagramfeature : "A book published this year"...this particular on 25th Jan'18.
.
.
📌#blurb 📌
🧜This is a story set in Georgian London..about Jonah Hancock a stout widowed merchant who lost his wife and boy on birth bed, comes into possession of a mermaid...searching for ways to make profit out of it.
🧜In other corner of London a most beautiful thoughtless courtesan who loves/dreams to live a extravagant life, is left alone and penniless when her protector dies unexpectedly. She leaves with her friend who is always worried for all the expenditures.
🧜It's during the exhibit of mermaid that Hancock and Angelica collides and a new story comes in the picture.
.
. 📌#bookreview 📌
🧜I personally loved the way the author brought all the pictures live infront of my eyes. The book briefly talks about racism and womanhood too.
🧜I loved the individual stories and the kind of dark poetry by Mermaid in between the chapters much more and though I loved the ending also. But in 3rd volume i was not able to digest the sudden changes in Angelica which were totally against her nature which you will learn once you read this book. So I feel the ending was little huried. But apart from that the book is beautiful.
.
.
📌#bookquote (one of my most fav)📌
She is'wife of' and 'aunt of'; later she will be 'mother of' - perhaps some energetic young man whose achievements will never be traced back to she who birthed him. These claims upon her will only multiply - she will be mother-in-law, grandmother, widow, dependent - and accordingly her own person will be divided and divided and divided, until there is nothing left.

#currentlyreading and enjoying ‘Rebecca’ by Daphne du Maurier with my #ClassicsLadies and it’s honesty been hard to put down since I started it. I also recently got this “Bookish Babes Club” tote bag from @nookandburrow and it’s perfect for carrying the handful of books I like to bring around with me.

⠀⠀
The #hufflepuff grid is almost over, and while Ravenclaws are notorious readers, I feel there is a large hufflepuff presence here on bookstagram. Which leads to my #QOTD:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What book would you recommend a Hufflepuff � These books would include loyal friendships or involve fighting for justice in an unjust world.

The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If you're after some well-pitched Gothic horror with mostly female characters, an interesting premise and a good balance of drama and subtlety, this book will not disappoint you.

It reminded me of The Haunting of Hill House, even though The Silent Companions is set in Victorian times and is, I think, more strictly plotted. Recommended if you like your ghosts and mysteries with a definite horror bent; it really gave me the creeps.

I borrowed three books from my school library today. I'm planning on rereading the whole ToG series so I got The Assassin's Blade (I'm ready to cry my heart out 😢). I finally borrowed SP Last Stand of Dead Men ahaha... I finished Kingdom of the Wicked like months ago and I hadn't been bothered to borrow the next book till now 😅. And I'm borrowing And Then There Were None for a group buddy read #diversitybookclub 😁. I've never read any of Agatha Christie's books so hopefully I'll enjoy it!

What an epic read! This is an unbelievably good fantasy read that lived up to its hype! 。 ✏️
In the land of Orisha, the cruel and ruthless King Saran orders the massacre of the powerful maji clans in 'the Raid'. Zelie, a maji of life and death (reaper) from the Iku Clan survives the Raid. Chosen by the gods, Zelie, Tzain and Amari (princess of Orisha) are sent to an epic journey to restore magic in the land of Orisha. They have to retrieve 3 holy artifacts and complete a sacred ritual which can only be performed by a maji, at the Holy Temple on centennial solstice or magic will disappear forever. 。
✏️
Children of Blood and Bone is a moving tale of love, betrayal, injustice and forgiveness. It is well-paced and there was never a dull moment. Intriguing plot, amazing world building, well-developed characters & magical storytelling - all the elements of an epic read! And now I wait in anticipation for the next book and it is already killing me slowly here. 。

Hey #bookfriends .
.
Just finished reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. It was an interesting read, though not my favourite of his books. I still adore it. .
.
I give it 3.5 ⭐️’s .
.
This wasn’t even on this months TBR but hey it’s a Gaiman book, I couldn’t resist reading it when I bought it last week.
.
.
#qotd : Is there an author whose books you cannot resist reading as soon as you buy them? Even if you have other books you are in the middle of? .
.
Neil Gaiman is one that is for me, if you haven’t already guessed.

It was so hard finding this book. I finally got it! 😆 I'm so excited to read it. This book is set in the same world as #TheGirlWithAllTheGifts by #MRCarey I highly recommend that book, it was an amazing read & I'm not a fan of #zombies at all.

So, I've finished reading Orphan X and all I can say about this book is - Jason Bourne meets The Equalizer. Wow! Thumbs up! 。
✏️
12 years old Evan Smoak is taken from the foster home by the U.S government to be trained as a weapon for the government's offline covert operations. Known as Orphan X in this Orphan Program, Evan goes through gruelling training which has equipped him with impeccable skills and knowledge. Years later, Evan breaks with the program and disappears. Using his skills and knowledge, he now helps those who are in desperate situations and he is now known as The Nowhere Man. During one of his personal mission, he discovers someone is targeting him and wants him dead. Who and why?
✏️
This first book of the Evan Smoak series already grabbed my interest right from the first page. Fast-paced and jam-packed with action, it kept me at the edge of my seat throughout the story. I will definitely continue reading this series! 。

Hey #bookfriends .
.
Sorry for not posting more regularly of late, just been exhausted. .
.
Anyhow, here’s my recent book haul. .
.
1. How the Marquis Got His Coat Back
.
2. Planet of the Apes Omnibus: Volume 1
.
3. Planet of the Apes Omnibus: Volume 2
.
4. Planet of the Apes: Tales From the Forbidden Zone
.
5. The Ocean at the End of the Lane
.
.
I had hoped to get the third and fourth volumes of The Planet of the Apes Omnibus’s but the third was unavailable from QBD and they forgot to put the fourth on my order receipt.
.
.
Happy with what I did get though. The Ocean at the End of the Lane I actually got last Sunday as it was in store when I was ordering the rest then. Picked up the rest today.
.
.
I have to say How the Marquis Got His Coat Back is the smallest and shortest book I own now. It is a mere 58 pages. Will be able to knock that one out in one sitting.
.
.
The two Planet of the Apes Omnibus’s collect the novelisations of the second to the fifth film of the original film series. While Tales from the Forbidden Zone is a collection of short stories. .
.
I have already started reading Ocean at the End of the Lane even though it was meant to be on my TBR for September. I was empty handed last week when I purchased it and couldn’t resist starting it as I did with The Graveyard Book when I bought it. It’s Neil Gaiman, hard to resist.
.
.
I do have a another Planet of the Apes book on preorder. Planet of the Apes: Visionaries which comes out on the 28th of this month. .
.
I hope that I didn’t bore any you guys with my lengthy post. Thanks for reading it if you made it all the way to the end.

Who else is excited for the next installment in the Fantastic Beasts series, “The Crimes of Grindelwald”? I preordered it the moment I could and I absolutely cannot wait to see the movie.

Newt is, of course, a member of House #Hufflepuff and a Magizooligist, a job I wish I had. Which brings me to the #QOTD:

What profession would you choose if you were a wizard �

Would you be an Auror like the Longbottoms, a professional Quidditch player like Viktor Krum, or maybe a wandmaker like Garrick Ollivander? (There are so many options, tbh)

Hello everyone! How is your weekend going so far? I've had a brilliant time doing the #25infive readathon. Its the middle of day 3 and I have clocked in about 13 hours which is good enough considering I gobbled up Anne of green gables last night! Omg why in the world didn't I read it before?! I'm going to go ahead and make this a Anne readathon with trying to squeeze in as many of the remaining titles as I can in the coming days! 😄 🌟

Clearly my mother is home from China and she brought me so many bookmarks (cause it is a truth universally acknowledged that one can never have enough bookmarks!) I read art of war in my early teens and can still recall parts of it from memory which is strange since I only read it through maybe once. Probably gonna do a reread soon. 🌟

QotD: Bookmarks or Dog-ears? 🌟

This was such a heartwarming book. Like there were so many "awwwwww" moments. Heidi's such an innocent girl 😄. It'd be great if I had a Heidi in my life 😆. Oh wait... I had a friend in Hong Kong called Heidi 😅😂. Anyways my sister and I watched an animated series of Heidi when we were kids and we loved it (we still have most of the DVDs... Maybe I'll rewatch then someday and revisit childhood 😄) But yeah I'm so glad I decided to read the book.

Ughhh school is so busy right now 😭. I have so many assignments... I'm actually looking forward to year 11? I just wanna get year 10 over and done with.

I recently read this verse novel called The Art of Taxidermy (by Sharon Kernot). It was such a fascinating book! It was set in Australia (I think after WW1? Though it felt pretty modern) and about this girl - Lottie - who has an interest in collecting dead creatures and preserving them. I think this was my first time reading a verse novel and I quite liked it. It was such a unique story and I really enjoyed learning about the main character and her (and her family's) past. It was so good and I think I learnt a few things from that book. I recommend it 😀.

Also I know my photos aren't very good but I hope you guys enjoy reading my captions more than looking at the photo haha 😂.

#bookstagramfeature : Book and dessert is a heavenly combination 📖🍩😋
.
.
The book in picture is Don Quixote and I just completed it's 1st part and moving on to 2nd. I bought this book last year since in Amazon list it was the most bought book.
.
It is written in 1605 and that was enough for me to get my reading eyes on it. But I was not able to pick it since it is huge...however it is only 1000pgs book...but the language and font makes this book not less than 1500pgs. Originally it was written in Spanish but it's English version has its essence reserved.
.
📌#bookreview #part1 📌
⚔️Don Quixote (not real name) is a 50yr old and a Hidalgo who lives with a niece and a housekeeper. He loves to read lots of books on Knight chivalry and has a whole collection of them. Somehow it gets into his head that these fictions are non-fiction and that Spain needs a Knight to make wrong rights. So he ride his nag and make a Squire out of a poor and simple farmer, 'Sancho' promising him a governorship and goes on an adventure. In this adventure Don imitates the Knights and their adventures of books in his real life. For him windmills are Giants, Inn is a castle, harlot a princess, flock of sheep an army etc. And in this all Sancho is blindfolded by his greed and agrees on everything to his master except some "blanket tossing" since he is not so mad. Also Don's friends: a priest and a barber are trying to found him and cure him. And are they successful?!
.
⚔️This book is beautiful, humourous and miserable at the same time. The language/dialogues of the book are written in such a leisure. They are soo rich and beautifully written that you wont be able to read it fast. You can savour it but not devour it.
⚔️The book has awesome stories in stories and some beautiful sonnets.
⚔️At times you might feel the story is dragging but that's the essence of this book.

Hello everyone! I'm just about to start the #25infive readathon. My goal is to finish Magnus Chase and Anne of green gables. Since the goal is for 25 reading hours in the next five days I'm pretty sure I'll have time for a book or two more. I'll decide those along the way, but here's my reading list for now! 🌟

#bookreadhappyhour Day 8: #summerofscifi. I tried reading Revenger last summer, but I DNFed it. It was one of those books that had a great description (Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly?! Yes, please!) but it failed to live up to it. Maybe one day I’ll give it another try.

Hello everyone! The weather just isn't clearing up enough for me to take a new round of photos. It's raining and raining and raining some more. So here is a shot I took a couple of weeks back, but never posted. 🌟

Anyway how is your week going so far? I'm about halfway through magnus chase and the ship of the dead. It definitely isn't my favourite Riordan, but a fun fast paced read as usual. I'm also thinking of starting Anne of green gables on the side. 🌟

QotD: Do you have a favourite flower? 🌟

Dreams Before the Start of Time by Anne Charnock: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is feminist speculative/science fiction that feels like realism, told through a series of vignettes/character studies that all in some way connect to two friends, Toni and Millie. It's beautifully done, although really more philosophical than anything else. There's no plot to speak of, just an examination of how families can work (and not work) in many different forms, and some consideration of what the quickly-advancing science of fertility will do to family dynamics.

It felt very calm and peaceful to read, interesting without being overwhelming, and the tone was so confident, the sci-fi touches so deft, that I wasn't at any point jarred out of the story to question the science, which is quite an achievement. Well worth a read.

Bookstores are my kryptonite. I couldn’t carry all of these home from San Francisco, so I mailed a box of books and movies home to myself. Don’t judge me! 😘 Here are a few of the beautiful treasures I found.

This is the cover of my shiny new edition of the Silmarillion 😊 I'm hoping to start it next week after I get back from a weekend away with my friends. Peeps who've read it; should I read it straight through or in bits with other things in between?

Thank you @readerscosmos for these beauties.

So #SillyJuly was a bad fail. I couldn't even keep up with the bad captions game but let's just all forget the fiasco that it was.
.
.
I'm currently reading a book in which a married woman commits adultery. In my opinion it doesn't matter what the gender is, adultery and infidelity are the last straws in any relationship. I mean, why not just walk out instead of putting your partner through shame and pain? I don't think I would ever forgive someone if they did that. I would literally be singing 'I bust the windows out your car' while banging the baseball bat through the windows. I'm fiercely loyal and if you can't repay the same, you better make your windows bulletproof sister.
Enough of my rant. What do you think about second chances? Would you forgive someone if they pleaded and begged? Or would you kick them out on their ass?

Sabriel by Garth Nix: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I reread this recently and it's still great. I am a total sucker for a female lead who's powerful but inexperienced, and counters that by being deeply pragmatic (hi, Susan Death) and Sabriel is a good example of that. Plus it's part alternate history in the best way, the magic system is well thought out and interesting, AND it has a talking cat. Can't lose.

📖#grimdragon - recommend a series
📖#allthebooksaug18: make this a movie, please! It would be really easy to make the film of this super diverse, and I'd love to see the magic of this setting brought to life onscreen.

It’s no secret that #hufflepuffs have an aptitude for gardening and herbology, Professor Sprout is a testament to that, and those things are also something I find interesting.
⠀⠀
This is a photo I took last year of our sunflowers on the farm. This year we did not grow them, as our patch is part of a space we left fallow, but next year we will be back at it! Check out my gardening page @ouro_boric if you are interested. ⠀⠀

Reading The Goldfinch, is my reward for finishing the good copy of this assignment & binge reading The Picture of Dorian Grey for my queer lit class.
I also applied for 3 jobs that I think would be awesome (I'm sure many hundreds applied also), & I have a super secret project I'm working on.
Walks on Saturday really did revive my passions and my drive. It also reminded me to approach things differently and challenge myself more. .

"There is this idea that you either read to escape or you read to find yourself. I don’t really see the difference. We find ourselves through the process of escaping. It is not where we are, but where we want to go, and all that. ‘Is there no way out of the mind?’ Sylvia Plath famously asked. I had been interested in this question (what it meant, what the answers might be) ever since I had come across it as a teenager in a book of quotations. If there is a way out, a way that isn’t death itself, then the exit route is through words. But rather than leave the mind entirely, words help us leave a mind, and give us the building blocks to build another one, similar but better, nearby to the old one but with firmer foundations, and very often a better view. ‘The object of art is to give life a shape,’ said Shakespeare. And my life – and my mess of a mind – needed shape. I had ‘lost the plot’. There was no linear narrative of me. There was just mess and chaos. So yes, I loved external narratives for the hope they offered. Films. TV dramas. And most of all, books. They were, in and of themselves, reasons to stay alive. Every book written is the product of a human mind in a particular state. Add all the books together and you get the end sum of humanity. Every time I read a great book I felt I was reading a kind of map, a treasure map, and the treasure I was being directed to was in actual fact myself. But each map was incomplete, and I would only locate the treasure if I read all the books, and so the process of finding my best self was an endless quest. And books themselves seemed to me to reflect this idea. Which is why the plot of every book ever can be boiled down to ‘someone is looking for something’. One cliché attached to bookish people is that they are lonely, but for me books were my way out of being lonely." -Matt Haig #bookish #bibliophile #bibliophagist #book #magic #library #lovers #world #leapaquehablemos #mind #mess #art #reasonstostayalive #words #narrative #storytelling

Recently I listened to Pamela Paul from the NY times book review podcast speak to Mohsin Hamid about his Man Booker shortlisted book Exit West. Something about the way he expressed his thoughts while writing the book made me want to read it right away. He says we are all immigrants at any given point in our lives, even if we don’t physically emigrate.
Today, we still don’t have enough dialogue about immigration, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid comes across as an urgent, relevant book. With a measured dose of magic realism, Hamid weaves a narrative about a people in crisis. Inhabiting a fictional city, Saeed and Nadia must fight to keep their freedom intact. Exit west is a narrative that is told in the most soothing of voices. One that touches you deeply and makes you think about other people, the not-so fortunate ones for whom life is an endless struggle, every single day. -
