hello, happy first day of may ♡
it’s time for a monthly wrap up ; regarding reading, april was an excellent month : i read eight books, which is a lot for me since i’m quite the slow reader, + april was kinda a tough month.
.
— la ballade de lila K, b. le callet, 3.5/5
— let the sky fall, s. messenger, 5/5
— l’école des femmes, molière, 3.75/5
— george dandin, molière, 4/5
— histoire d’un merle blanc, musset, 4.5/5
— stalking jack the ripper, k. maniscalco, 5/5
— arria marcella, gautier, 5/5
— le cauchemar du bathyscaphe, k. hosni, 4.5/5
.
let the sky fall was a buddy reread, and, just like the first time i loved it so much.
molière’s plays were so funny and quick to read.
théophile gautier’s arria marcella surprised me in many ways :)
as for musset’s autobiography, it was really original, albeit very short.
and my personal favorite of the month : sjtr ! heheh ;) i’ve written a review in the previous post if you’re interested.
.
what was the best book(s) you read in april?

☕️🌲 #bookishlywritey w 4 — things i look forward to : reading more next month, i’m raising my goals heheh ☕️🌲

have a nice day 🌻
much love xx

joyeux premier mai. voici un bilan de mes lectures d’avril :
.
— la ballade de lila K, b. le callet, 3.5/5
— let the sky fall, s. messenger, 5/5
— l’école des femmes, molière, 3.75/5
— george dandin, molière, 4/5
— histoire d’un merle blanc, musset, 4.5/5
— stalking jack the ripper, k. maniscalco, 5/5
— arria marcella, gautier, 5/5
— le cauchemar du bathyscaphe, k. hosni, 4.5/5
.
let the sky fall était une LC, et relecture pour moi, et j’ai autant aimé que la première fois ♡
pour les deux pièces de molière, elles étaient hilarantes and très rapides à lire.
quant à arria marcella, j’ai été vraiment surprise d’aimer autant ce classique!
pour la nouvelle autobiographique de musset, je l’ai trouvé courte mais vraiment orignale.
et ma lecture favorite du mois : sjtr, qui était top!

quel a été votre lecture préférée en avril ? ☾

des bisous, xx 💋

❝i was determined to be both pretty and fierce.❞
— stalking jack the ripper.
.
.
hi there ♡
i promised a review about this book i read two weeks ago, so there it is (i know it’s long, and to tell i haven’t even talked about half the things i intended to haha ! that’s how much i loved reading it).
-
REVIEW : stalking jack the ripper.
a very well deserved 5/5 ⭐️
alright so where do i start?
first of all, i loved the mc overall. she was a true queen. audrey rose is a female scientist in victorian london (a setting i personally love, and the way kerri maniscalco describes it is simply mesmerizing), and she wants to prove she’s as capable as any man. most times in this type in situations, the woman acts like men to show they’re the same, and that irritates me to see the character giving up on their feminine attires. and thankfully, audrey rose did not : she liked wearing pretty gowns, makeup, hairstyles, laced-up boots and silk corsets, that didn’t not stop her from approaching cadavers daily, wearing riding trousers at a tea party, using her brain cells and be spectacular. she likes to flirt. she likes to act like a lady, but she condemns society’s prejudice. she doesn’t think « i am a woman, but i want to study forensics » but more like « i am a woman, and i want to study forensics. » that’s what i most admired about her.
then there’s her love story with thomas cresswell, the tall dark stranger, the (almost) perfect english gentleman, the sarcastic partner and handsome teammate. audrey rose wasn’t in a competition to prove him she was better, because he had understood that the first time he saw her, and never underestimated her. he always respected and helped her through ; and respect is a quality i highly value.
lastly (and i swear this review could have been ten times longer, given how much i’ve loved this story), let’s not forget how brilliant the plot was : i was surprised (which happens rarely) by the unexpected twists and turns of this story. i don’t read a lot of mystery books, and when i do i often figure out the identity of the killer, except this time i didn’t. i couldn’t possibly guess it - and that was brilliant.

aloha #tardisthursday, book nerds 💙 @tediously_brief here 🦋 so sorry today’s post is so late! let me tell you, it has been a DAY (again). i finally got my resurrected macbook air all set up with my applications, only to realize at 6:30p tonight that i most likely left it at the elementary school i head mentor at during our weekly session today. obviously, the school is closed & i had also lost my cellphone inside my house for a solid hour due to the inability to use find my iphone totally crippled me, & i had my first horrible panic attack in such a long time. honestly, it surprised me how shocking it felt bc i have been working so hard at managing my anxiety & panic disorder that it made me realize how far i’ve come in my journey. i used to have panic attacks almost every other day until early last year. i’m really proud of myself for working hard to retrain my cognitive behaviors to be able to talk myself down, usually, when i’m not at the brink of exhaustion & technical difficulties i’ve been privy to as of late.
——————————
i cannot even begin to tell you how utterly OBSESSED with @canterburyroadco I am. (siriusly, just watch my ‘canterbury’ story highlights to see). this doctor who inspired SOMETHING BLUE is just something else, though. just literal bloomin’ perfection in an 8oz jar. with notes of CUSTARD • TEA • PETRICHOR, this candle is just yummy, cosy, delicate, beautiful, & just plain perfection. it’s exactly how i wish the inside of 11’s #tardis smells like. also, how flippin cute is this label?! y’all know I just got a tardis tattoo by @winter_stone. in love with the tardis. i’ll just be over here waiting for a mad man in a blue box to drop into my bedroom. 👋🏻 ——————————
QOTD: how do you wind down after a stressful day? (i need tips, y’all! help me!)

Off to see Infinity War tonight with the family! 😍💛 *woot woot* we we're supposed to go see it on the weekend but decided to go on a beach we haven't been to before yet (I'm excited yet anxious at how burnt I might be after 😂). I think I'm finally going to have some quality reading time at the beach this weekend!!! .


Who else has seen Infinity Wars already? 😍 What're your plans for the weekend? .

Speaking of reading, I've only finished one book so far (not counting ACOWAR which I've avoided finishing because I CAN'T LET IT GO JUST YET 😭 since ACOFAS will be released soon, I reckon I can safely finish it tonight or tomorrow 😂 preparing myself for feels!!!). .


If you've seen my stories yesterday, you'd know how much I've been fangirling over this keeper 😂 and am so thankful I got to snag one! I got it from @pages.remembered at a discount using code LYBRARY10 😉💛 she has some amazing new prints out so check them out and save on your orders using my code 😘💝👌 .

I haven't done a tag in a while and I reckon it's a good time to do the #top3fandomsmerch tag by Dewi  @diary.of_a_fangirl.16547 😘💛
🎁 Alice in Wonderland - obviously 😂
🎁 Harry Potter - Always! 🎁 Star Wars - ultimate geek out 😍
Tagging some friends for this one!!! .

#BookishLyWritey - looking forward to my beach trip with my family this week! 🤗💛

“I'll be a story in your head. That's okay. We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? 'Cause it was, you know. It was the best. The daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. Did I ever tell you that I stole it? Well I borrowed it. I was always going to take it back.” — Doctor 11, “The Angels Take Manhattan,” @bbcdoctorwho @doctorwho_bbca.
——————————
aloha book nerds 📚 @tediously_brief here🗽 if you saw in my stories yesterday, i had to drop off my 2wk old macbook pro at my nearest mac911 to get my screen replaced 💻 so my mama & i have been hanging around santa monica all afternoon + evening & i’ve been working as much as i can, but i also took an opportunity to just enjoy a day with less screen time for a change, & it’s been so nice to have a slower day, just enjoying my mama’s company 😍 she even got me some cute stuff at levi’s as an early bday present! (my birthday is in 1 month)!
——————————
i also brought this amazing big doctor who book pouch (w my fav quote i want to get tattooed) by the amazing pouch queen megan from @novelgrounds with me with my 20th anniv special ed. of outlander & bookish merch to shoot & seriously it fits SO MUCH y’all! it’s so convenient when shooting outside on the go. it fits a thick hardcover, a short paperback, & bookish goodies! & IT’S GOT A ZIPPER CLOSURE. get one ASAP!

QOTD: Does anyone else occasionally buy a book and then forget what it is about?
.
I purchased The Hazel Wood during a Barnes & Noble sale because I thought it sounded great, but I keep forgetting what the plot is! Every time I look it up, it’s like someone (or thing) steals my memory of the synopsis. I am not really one for cover buys, but this novel is so pretty, it’s making me feel slightly guilty for my forgetfulness!
.
I’m off to watch iZombie and read. I hope your Wednesdays were kind—remember, we’re nearly to the weekend!

“Look,' he interrupted. 'You had a beautiful friendship. Maybe more than a friendship. And I envy you. In my place, most parents would hope the whole thing goes away, or pray that their sons land on their feet soon enough. But I am not such a parent. In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don't snuff it out, don't be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching others forget us sooner than we'd want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!” — @AcimanAndre, Call Me by Your Name.
——————————
aloha tuesday, book nerds 🌞 @tediously_brief here 🌸 if you didn’t already know, andré aciman’s call me by your name was one of my top reads this month, as is his most recent, enigma variations. i absolutely adored the film, but this book. wow. from the first line i have been mesmerized by aciman’s beautiful moody writing. his words make you feel as you are reading them. it’s an emotional experience. specifically, p225’s elio’s father’s speech to elio, which is just everything. not only do i wish & hope all lgbtqia+ youth are able to experience this level of love & acceptance from their parents & loved ones, but also all people can receive such a wise & beautiful sentiment of support, love, & acceptance from their families. this book has inspired so much of my WIP’s familial bonds for my protagonists because change happens the more we write our desires into normalcy to show others that love is love, human is human, kindness is kindness. & we should all love & support each other bc life is hard enough already, as do our hearts break enough without having to be broken by our families. .
.
also the biggest thank you to @novelgrounds for custom designing the most beautiful denim zippered pouch with a beautiful excerpt from elio’s father’s speech from CMBYN. if you would like to order one of these, you can request it by placing a custom order on the @novelgrounds etsy shop!

“What did you imagine?”
“The Olympics. Maybe even a Starbucks.” — Okoye and T’Challa, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) •



The owner of this account is currently hyperventilating at the thought of watching Avengers: Infinity War tomorrow or what she had named as Thanos and the Group of Mighty Looking Men 😂😂 Oh my gosh!! Could you believe it that tomorrow is 25th already?!!! Like hey, I need to sleep now so I could just watch it tomorrow. Also, I want to scream like a rabid fangirl that I sometimes am but I’m afraid I would lost my voice tomorrow 🤣🙈 So yes, saving all my energy for tomorrow. Not to mention I still have cough and flu so yeah, here is hoping I don’t bother other people while watching the movie tomorrow 🙏🏻 So excuse me while I spam you all with my fangirl babble about Avengers for a while 🤣 Also these gorgeous bookmarks are what I won from lovely Tiffany (@biblionatic) GA courtesy of @nerdy.post ☺️♥️ Go check them out because Tiffany’s feed are simply gorgeous and @nerdy.post bookmarks are also stunningly pretty 😍





Lovely Lina (@linathebookaddict), Chelci (@moonprincess37) and Callie (@beverageandbook) tagged me to do #booksandflowerstag so here we go 😆 Thank you, ladies 🤗♥️
🌺 Gerbera (book everyone should read) • Six of Crows
🌺 Rose (timeless classic) • Alice in Wonderland
🌺 Carnation (prettiest book) • The Language of Thorns
🌺 Baby’s Breath (Children’s book) • The Little Prince
🌺 Peony (favorite romance) • Autumn in Paris
🌺 Daisy (summer book) • Percy Jackson
🌺 Tulip (winter book) • Wintersong






QOTD: So if you have to choose, who you would rather see die in Infinity War tomorrow aside from Thanos? Because we could all agree we rather have Thanos to die instead of the others.

aloha monday, book nerds 🎭 newly migraine-less @tediously_brief here 🧘🏼‍♀️ spent the morning with a killer migraine, but now i am free from it’s painful clutches, ready to like a bookish candle or two as i gear up to kick the remainder of this cold away, get some reading + editing done, & then log all of the *bardugo giveaway* entries to pick the winners! i’m hoping to get the announcement out by tomorrow (sorry for the delay, @jesysbooks’ flight to europe ended up being two days earlier than we had thought, so things are a little chaotic at the moment.) but enough about that.
.
if y’all haven’t owned a @canterburyroadco candle yet, you need to run to your nearest internet browser bc holy soy wax, let me tell you. does @ladyshanelise know how to blend a #aesthetic scent profile or what?! i am obsessed with her gorgeous scented candles. this og ONE MORE CHAPTER is part of a series she has (i also own the young adult edition), but the scent screams #bookstagram, as does the label. (omg can we talk about her BEAUTIFUL labels, though?)
.
ONE MORE CHAPTER smells of COTTON • PEARS • SUNFLOWERS & it is the sunshine of my life. 🍐🌻 run, don’t walk, to grab yourself one. i already have a list of candles i want next from shannon!! (london fog + rainy day reads omg need).
——————————
QOTD: do you burn your bookish candles?
——————————
i’ve been chatting in the DMs a lot lately abt the fact that i burn a couple candles at a time. i love that i’m inspiring some of you to burn your candles more! i love burning certain scents whilst writing certain scenes to help me get into the right headspace. it also doesn’t hurt that every time i burn through a fav, i support my fav candlemakers by replacing it with a new one!

It's my first year anniversary in bookstagram and I can't believe how amazing it has been! I know I'm supposed to be sleeping now especially since I only had an hour of sleep before running my first half marathon today but it's such an important day that I wanted to take the time to write this post first. Thank you all so much for making my year amazing and for sticking with me for a whole year 😭😘💛

To be honest with you all, I didn't know about the community when I started posting bookish photos. It was only after I got the hang of using Instagram then that I discovered such an AMAAAAZING community existed and I'm absolutely thankful for being a part of it (even if it wad accidentally at first 😂). I was so clueless when I was starting out that I'd never imagine to meet such amazing people here on the community and to have gained the sweetest friends here even if most of you are thousands of miles away! I've also gained amazing bookish siblings whom are so dear and precious to me 😘💛 I'm truly thankful for also having had the opportunity to work with so many amazing shops I've been fangirling over 😭 I'm still over the moon! ➴
There's still so much I want to say but I might end up writing a novella if I keep going 😂 so I'll end it here... for now. ➴
No tags today but I would love to know:
❓what made you start your own bookstagram account
❓how you encountered the bookstagram community 👯 And tag some of the amazing friends, BFF's, or bookish siblings you've met here! 😘💛 Spread the love and be kind. Happy weekend, beautiful! ➴
P.S. I initially started my feed with photos of myself with a book, so I thought I should post a photo of me reading for my anniversary 😄

.

.
#BookishLyWritey - Goals! My First half marathon everrr 😍💛 and being a part of such an amazing commmunity.

“This actions will have no echo.” — Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom •



Could we talk about how great Six of Crows is? Because seriously, I love this duology so much, I probably bore you with how many times I talk about it 😂🙈 So I choose it for today’s #BookishLyWritey topic. Yes! I’m here to talk your ears off about one of my favorite books so Six of Crows duology it is! I really love how this duology practically have so many relevant things in it. Like how it teaches us to keep fighting against the odds, how to accept ourselves; flaws and all, how your past doesn’t define who you really are, and many more. I really love this duology 😭♥️♥️ The fact that this duology is also consist of heist, cunning plans and some twist that just take you on a roller coaster ride only makes me love it more. If you haven’t read it yet, don’t waste any time and go get it now. Also, featured in this photo is Six of Crows bundle from @malvara.id go check them out if you are interested 😉 And of course, the pretty bookmark is all the work of amazing Stella (@stellabookishart) and lastly, the gorgeous prints are courtesy of none others than the talented @silketara 🙌🏻♥️ •




Lovely Nik (@novels_and_coffeebeans) and Chelci (@moonprincess37) tagged me to do #bookishsins so confessions time, people 😂🙌🏻 Also, tysm darlings 😘💛

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” — Oprah Winfrey •



Choose your kind of adventures! Because there are many kinds of adventures out there, what kind of adventures that suits you more? Are you more like the type who likes to embark on a mysterious dangerous journey or more like the hero adventures one where you have a purpose whether to save the world or the prince/princess or your family/siblings? Or perhaps you are the reluctant protagonist who go on an adventure because you have no choice in your fate? I choose tv shows for today’s #BookishLyWritey so, what is your favorite tv shows? Mine would be Sherlock, Supernatural, Hannibal, The Originals, Teen Wolf, Merlin, Game of Thrones, etc. Let’s choose what kind of characterization you would like to have from Game of Thrones and Supernatural! So I honestly would like to be an assassin like Arya if somehow I found myself stuck in Game of Thrones and would definitely choose to be a huntress in Supernatural 😉 I would love to be a witch or a vampire in The Originals though 🤣♥️ That aside, I just got myself the ticket for the first day of Avengers: Infinity War and totally couldn’t wait to watch it next week 😍♥️♥️♥️





My darling Lina (@linathebookaddict) and Patty (@namastayreading) tagged me to do #top5newreleases 😉💛 Tysm lovelies 😘❤️ Fyi, I want to read these books but haven’t gotten the chance or the money to do so yet 😂
🛍 Ace of Shades

hellow world 🌝
promise, these are some of the last snowy shots i took lol once i’m done posting all the winter-y pics i have left be prepared for a shiny spring feed (at least i’ll try)
- i also wanna keep including some photos of paris cause you know, prettiest city in the world ;)
.
i just bought fifteen second handed books, most of them were classics, and i feel so happy rn. i love paper books, especially when they’re already used. there are two stories to a book : the one words tell, and the one paper tells. knowing that someone read it before you is an odd yet comforting, keen feeling :) don’t you agree ?
.
-
☕️🌲 #bookishlywritey w 3 — days of happiness : talking about something that makes me happy : basically, bookstagram. posting pictures i took, answering your amazing comments, and discovering new books makes me happy :)☕️🌲

je continuerais aussi de poster quelques photos de pari de temps en temps étant donné que paris, plus belle ville du monde <3 je me lasserais jamais d’y prendre des photos heheh
.
je viens d’acheter quinze livres d’occasions, la plupart des classiques, et j’ai vraiment trop trop hâte de les lire. récemment j’ai lu deux pièces de molière : george dandin, et l’école des femmes, j’ai adoré les deux ^^ (molière en général ne m’a jamais déçue).

des bisous, xx 💋
bonne soiréeee

“She had a wild, wandering soul but when she loved, she loved with chaos and that made all the difference.” — Ariana Dancu •



Wednesday is here so we are already half there from weekends! Anyway, good evening, lovelies. I just had a video call with my little sis who is currently studying abroad now and totally envy her when she told me she is going to go to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter 😭 Like oh my gosh!! Between the two of us, I was probably the most hyped and fangirl over it yet she bypass me on going there 😂🙈 Here is hoping I could go there soon this year. Let’s talk about holiday plan for today #BookishLyWritey topic. Because I love holiday and traveling despite how broke I am for it 🤣 So what kind of dream holiday you want? Or when you go traveling, what kind of things you are looking forward the most? I especially love exploring the new cities and seeing all the scene and building. Also the foods!! Let’s not forget about the foods 😂 So far, my favorite place which I had been to for holiday would be Japan. It was really beautiful place filled with rich culture and many gorgeous scenery. I totally want to go back there all over again if only I wasn’t broke 🙈

“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.” — @veschwab, A Darker Shade of Magic.
——————————
aloha tuesday, book nerds 🍵 @tediously_brief here 🧚🏼‍♀️ i am still feeling residual as travars ability envy rn. idk what it is, maybe since it will almost mark a full year next month since i had a proper airplane necessitating trip ✈️ maybe I’m just spoiled but i feel like it’s healthy to get out of los angeles every once in a while so (1) i can appreciate living here, & (2) so i can feel less numb to everything, which i feel like starts to happen the longer you stay in lala land w/o venturing outside of it.
.
i am so in love with this beautiful ADSOM tote by @stellabookishart emblazoned with one of my fav quotes of all time that was in my @wickandfable special edition 📦 i think this quote accurately describes how i’m feeling rn, as well as my philosophy on life. i always want to live to the fullest, travel more, see more, love more, experience more. adventure courses through my veins, even if i am an indoorsy extroverted-introvert. i think making even mundane every day tasks into a fun adventure is good for the soul, be it just an adventure to a part of your neighborhood you don’t always head to. every outdoor shoot is an adventure to me. & i absolutely am in love with discovering more about myself & my craft, through my adventures. i also can’t wait to discover more through the adventures I have planned in the coming months!

QOTD: what’s a quote you think accurately represents a personal philosophy of yours? (see my additional answer in the comments below).

Today’s #aprilinbooks18 prompt is characters who love books, and it inspired me to collect some of my favorite novels featuring bookworms! I’ve revisited each of these stories at least once since my initial read, and they stand the test of time. If you like books about books, or bookish people, read them.
.
This photo also meets the prompts for a few other challenges:
.
#bookishlywritey: week 3 is 5 days of happiness, and all these books make me very happy! (Though, TBH, The Time Traveler’s Wife also makes me sad.)
.
#aprilbookishgirls: bookworm characters: Lazlo, AJ, Henry and George and co, and Henry are all bookworms, and I love them for it.
.
#mindforbooksapril: journey: Lazlo goes on an epic, transformative journey in Strange the Dreamer, and I cannot wait to see it continue in Muse of Nightmares.
.
#aprilreadsbooks18: I ship it: I actually ship all the couples in these books.
.
I have a massive headache due to the constant temperature fluctuations we’re experiencing at the moment (damn you, sinuses!), but I’m off to get some exercise. Till next time, bookworms!

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” — J.R.R. Tolkien •



We talk about simple things that make us happy yesterday, so let’s talk about our favorite food for today #BookishLyWritey topic. Because who doesn’t love food? Confession time, I’m not good with cooking. As in I could make fried rice, fried egg, spaghetti and instant noodles just fine but ask me to make soup or other complicated foods and I would wave white flag 😂🙈 Because seriously I love eat but I’m bad on cooking, I could never even peel fruits to save my life 😭 That aside, there’s so much joy you find in eating good food especially when you share it with your loved ones. So quick question, what kind of food you like to eat together with your family or friends? For family, I definitely love eating shabu-shabu together! Shabu-shabu is a Chinese-Japanese nabemono hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water. Honestly, it’s really delicious! As for with friends, I absolutely love eating almost anything from burgers to pizza to even fried rice because when you hang out with friends, usually you would have fun no matter what kind of food you choose to eat.

Currently reading Spellslinger series by Sebastien de Castell and loving it. I am on Shadowblack at the moment which is book 2. ( You can read my review of book 1 at my blog link in bio) #aprilreadsbooks18 #aprilinbooks18 #bookishlywritey #bloomingreads #addlebowtiesapril18 #beastlybooksapril18 #delightinginspring
Reading quirks:
- At home I need quiet to read, but outside I can read on bus, train etc with all the noise no prob
- Have notepad on cellphone open so I can add my thoughts for my review
- Do not like to read excerpts of books, they are like spoilers for me.
- Sometimes if I am reading a really exciting part I have to cover bottom of page so don't skip ahead.
- Cannot read more than 1 book at a time

aloha #mapmonday, book nerds 🗺 @tediously_brief here ⛺️ is anyone else feeling as wanderlusty as i am lately? the wanderer inside me is clawing to get out. 🐅 maybe it’s because i’ve been feeling really run down lately (i had the worst migraine on friday + almost fainted from exhaustion 💀). i was looking up airbnbs in santa barbara to get away for a couple days but my mama was telling me i need to focus on just taking time to stay still, which might be better for me since trying to pack & squeeze in a quick jaunt when i have so many commitments might actually end up stressing me out even more. (y’all my mama needs her own advice column bc she’s always right. i’m so blessed she’s extending her stay again for me.) so for now, i’m just traveling in my imagination. staring at this map of orisha is currently my favorite mode of escapism. 🤔 💭 ✈️ 🗺

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” — Walt Disney •



Hello, Monday~ Let’s approach this day with some positivity even though all I want is to just sleep and laze around 😂🙈 How’s your Monday had been? As far as Monday goes, mine had been going really well. So here is hoping the rest of the week would fly so fast we are on weekend again 😉 This week topic from #BookishLyWritey is about days of happiness. So let’s share happiness around. What kind of things that make you happy? Let’s start with simple things which make you happy! For example, I’m so happy today because I spotted three kittens when I take Bilbo for a walk. Honestly they are so adorable and seeing Bilbo gets all curious and trying to approach them even though they are afraid of him which is really funny because Bilbo isn’t that big and more like a ball of fluff.





These lovely ladies @moonprincess37 @linathebookaddict @ly_brary @happymarysbooks tagged me to do #topfivedisneymoviez so here it is. Thank you, ladies 😘♥️

I'm so happy to have had some cleaning and reading done during the weekend after two weeks of being in a slump because of Kira (missing him so much). We owe finishing the marathon yesterday to him especially since we only started running to get him out of the house and have some excercise. Still missing him everyday. 💛

Hey lovelies 💓
QOTD: what’s your current read?
▫️▫️▫️
So if you saw my story, you would’ve seen that it is snowing and freezing rain here, not at all spring weather 😭
I had a final exam scheduled today for university, but my school along with 5 others in the area canceled everything today so it’s postponed 😅
▫️▫️▫️
I’m currently reading Legendary by @stephanie_garber and I’m loving it! ✨
I want to finish it tonight, and then probably going to Ash Princess 👑 ▫️▫️▫️
My beautiful and cozy hoodie featured here is by @booksandballads - isn’t it adorable? 💓

“One of the most cowardly things ordinary people do is to shut their eyes to facts.” — C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader •



When speaking of know-it-all character, I’m sure the one who come into your mind would be Hermione! Because how could we not? Hermione is one of the most knowledgeable bookish character! Not to mention how badass she is. #BookishLyWritey topic for the day would be a book that’s special for you! What books that would forever remain special for you? I have lots for this! Like Matilda, Harry Potter, Narnia, PJO, SoC, etc. Each one of them are special for me because those books reminds me of my reason for reading and makes me fall in love all over again with reading and books. Although, I feel like my list of special books would only grow as I kept reading considering I would keep discovering new magical books to read 🙈💕



Lovely Lina (@linathebookaddict) tagged me to do #bookishbeachtag 😆 Thank you, love 😘♥️
🌴 Sand in your swimmers (a book with a disappointing ending) • More like I wish the end could be different? The Chronicles of Narnia
🌴 Swimming between the flags (safe bet author) • Leigh Bardugo
🌴 Oh a pretty shell (beautiful cover) • Heartless
🌴 Sunburn (a book that got steamy) • ACOMAF
🌴 Sand castle (a book that was built up but failed to deliver) • I couldn’t think of one at the moment
