Good morning! I am so excited to have finally received my copy of Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. It's been on my radar for ages, and all the online shops kept sending my money back (or giving me credit notes๐Ÿ™„) because its always out of stock. And then when I did finally manage to go into 2 big and very REAL bookstores they also disappointed me by saying the same thing. So is everyone reading this book?๐Ÿค”Anyway I also had to get a copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman because she sounds like me (sans vodka)๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ #bookstagram #igreads #igbooks #bookmail #bookhaul #littlefireseverywhere #celesteng #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #gailhoneyman #sareaders #loot #bookdelivery

Hello beautiful people! It's been about 3 days since I uploaded anything even tho I just started my bookstgram and I feel bad about it, but the thing is I'm going through a really bad reading slump and I don't know how to get out of it. I wanna read so bad but I just can't and it's also making me feel really bad. Which means there's no progress in anything I'm reading. I'm forcing myself to go through a poetry book cause u know poetry books are easy to go through, I'm reading mind platter by @najwazebian and I'm actually really enjoying it, it's giving me all the feels.

THURSDAY HUGS, BOOKIESโ€”
๐Ÿ“šQOTD: Are you an impulse buyer when it comes to books or highly strategic?

Haha, Iโ€™m 100% impulse buyer and 0% self restraint. Okay, like, Iโ€™ve managed to walk out of a bookshop without a purchase. About five times *high five* Lol. But thatโ€™s not really saying all that much, since I probably spend more time in the book than the grocery store.

Both of these books are about thinking and both of them have pencils on the cover. Interesting.
I'm #currentlyreading Thinking, Fast and Slow after many recommendations. Not going to lie - I'm not enjoying it much. There's just something about the writing style that bugs me and so far? I haven't learnt anything new.
I'm interested to see how it compares with Mindset by Barbara Oakley. I LOVED "Learning How to Learn" so I hope it's as good.

THRONE OF GLASS READ-A-LONG

I've finally decided to re-read #TheThroneofGlass series, all in preparation for the final book, #KingdomofAsh ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ I joined @moonlight_books read-a-long (thanks to @under.the.midnight.sky) and I'm only starting on Saturday. But no worries, there is no pressure to catch up just yet.

As well as loving my experience reading Ready Player One, I am also delving into this gem. If you don't know who Lester Bangs is/was than perhaps you'll remember Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous and the role portrayed by the late great Phillip Seymour Hoffman? Lester Bangs wrote about rock music in a way that makes poetry dipped in chocolate seem almost offensive. Oh and say hi to Zooey. She may or may not have been named after an awesome and somewhat quirky actress, who was named after a book called Franny and Zooey by J. D Salinger (which is an amazing book by the way).

โ€œBooks are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Without books, the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are engines of change windows on the world and lighthouses erected in the sea of time. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.โ€
- I am continually fascinated by people throughout history who have risen up from their humble beginnings and absolutely defied all odds in their fearless pursuits of freedom and justice. The effects of their hard work that they achieved through blood sweat and tears is still influencing how we live in the world today. With all thatโ€™s going on in the world at the moment, it begs the question who will the next one be? I recently discovered โ€˜Hamiltonโ€™ (I know only 3 years behind *shakes head) The level that it speaks to me is uncanny. What he did for America I had no idea, I hence forth consider myself educated and blessed. Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years old today, his spirit lives on here in South Africa in the hearts of the people. Alexander Hamiltonโ€™s not only lives on through his incredible work, but also with the true spirit of America *cough not Trump, and most importantly the super catchy songs ๐ŸŽถ Iโ€™m just like my countryโ€”Iโ€™m young, scrappy, and hungry, and I am not throwing away my shot! ๐ŸŽถ - which historical figures through time speak to you and your beliefs, and do you think that more people will rise up to challenge the injustices of the world today?

WEDNESDAY

I've been on a reading spree lately, devouring any book that comes my way. I usually can't finish a book that bores me or can't pull me in. But I'm starting to see the beauty in every book.

#JonathanBallPublishers sent me Wild Signs and Star Paths by Tristan Gooley. It isn't at all what I would usually read but it's beautiful hardcover pulled me in. Its surprisingly so interesting ๐Ÿ˜‚ I honestly can't believe it.

Have you ever stepped out of your genre?

I really wanted to take a picture of this book that would maybe, capture how beautifully itโ€™s written. Particularly, how color is used as a descriptive tool throughout the book - it didnโ€™t turn out as expected but I still really like it! Besides the fact thatโ€™s itโ€™s stunning on the outside, it is hands down one of the best books Iโ€™ve read this year. Itโ€™s such an important one and it highlights mental illness in a way that is achingly beautiful. Everyone should read it.

Heya Booknerdigans!! ๐Ÿค“
๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ 
So I was thinking of dedicating Tuesdays to awesome kiddies/picture books? What do you guys think?
๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ 
โ€œMilly and the Mermaidsโ€ is a super sweet book. It follows Milly on her familyโ€™s outing to the beach where Milly is determinedly waiting (and sending signs) for the mermaids to show up. (SPOILER ALERT ๐Ÿคฃ) She disappointedly leaves the beach with only a shell, but that evening the shell grows and guess what.... ... .... ... inside is all the mermaids and their castle and little Milly happily gets to swim and play with them all night.๐Ÿ˜Š
๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ 
โ€œIโ€™d love to see a mermaid,โ€ says Mum. โ€œDo you think we ever will?โ€
Milly smiled. โ€œ You never know!โ€ she said. โ€œYou never know!โ€
๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’™
Super cute little story by Maudie Smith and the illustrations (by Antonia Woodward) are absolutely perfect!
๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ 
This was Isabellaโ€™s choice outfit the day I took this photo๐Ÿคฃ Sheโ€™s a little cutie๐Ÿ˜
The second pic with the open page is her favourite๐Ÿ

For a long time, I struggled with self-love. It was one of the reasons I stepped away from my blog. With every post and photograph, I tore myself down and convinced myself that my content wasn't good enough. Towards the end of 2017, I started feeling anxious and self-destructive, hating on myself whenever I had the chance. Basically, my mind was constantly against me - telling me I wasn't good enough whenever it had the chance.

But once 2018 came knocking, I decided to be kind to myself. I decided to forgive myself for hating on everything I do and be more loving. I started taking my diet seriously, I started accepting that I was beautiful in my own way and finally, I accepted that my content was my own - I had begun comparing my feed to others (not a good idea) . I also started working on loving myself, ALL of me, but it's a journey I'm still working on.

_

I received #MilkandHoney by @rupikaur_ as a birthday present in March. I devoured it but I realized later that the book was meant to be a slow read, something to open when you're feeling low and need some encouragement. Sometimes I used it to read my thoughts on paper - the heart breaking parts at least.

I loved the book and will be doing a review soon. I'm dying to get my hands on her second.

I won't say Milk and Honey helped me see the light but it definitely helped me gain back some confidence. โค๏ธ

Best. Ever. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š It has happened to me so many times (mostly checking out other people's stuff because I am nosy like that) ๐Ÿ’œ (๐Ÿ“ธ @oneofthexylophile) Also, I am trying to build my confidence by complimenting people - pretty bags or their cool decor, fabulous shoes and, of course, excellent taste in books! Every so often I do it and hope it makes their day because it does make me happier โ˜บ๏ธ Readers make the best friends! ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿ““ ๐Ÿ“–

Is it just me or is this book really difficult to get through. I have read a number of books in the past year and this is the one that Iโ€™m battling with. Not sure if I should push through or just give up and read another book ๐Ÿ“–

Managed to finish โ€œSpecialsโ€ by Scott Westerfeld on Saturday night and Iโ€™m relieved in a way that Iโ€™m done with that series. I always do this to myself - I read a book and love it and then read all the books in the series in a row ๐Ÿ™„ So after a great end to the series, Iโ€™m happy to be shifting gears a bit and reading a different style and genre. Also a first from this author for me... __________________________________________________

Eish guys, Iโ€™m not gonna lie. Studying is hard. My brain feels like mush and Iโ€™ve barely even started this degree. At least I can say that the theory Iโ€™m currently nose deep in is interesting and applies to majority of the literature I am into. But yoh, itโ€™s a lot. It can get so overwhelming. Right now I am just making my way through recommending reading, trying to develop a solid thesis question and select a minimum of six books to focus on. Send chocolate, ima need it. ๐Ÿ˜…

Gglympse in to Mpumulangas biking subculture. Spent 20 minutes with a biker gang or two at their annual get together in Mattafin yesterday. This is the brother of the fella in the previous shot. Was a rowdy affair to say the least ๐Ÿ‘Œ

#FacesofsiSwati "Rains are coming and that implied someone was burning something somewhere!Benjamin chuckled as he explained to me about hes cultural superstitions. His explanations was complemented by his fierce gaze in to the sky.Suggesting that he could almost see the fires burning that caused the formation of these oncoming clouds.
