••••• "To a parent, your child wasn't just a person: your child was a place, a kind of Narnia,a vast eternal place where the present you were living and the past your remembered and the future you longed for all existed at once." - Little Fires Everywhere By Celeste Ng • #currentread
“ and in your hesitation I found the answer I had been looking for, you didn’t really love me “ // excerpt of a book I won’t write #7 ・ ・ I got my Noble Design Rep package 📦 today and it’s so great! Her goodies are such good quality and I highly recommend! ( @a.n.d.made ) ・ ・ #booksaesthetics (thanks sm @thxsby ! ) ・ the hunger games ~ coal dusted faces, broken down streets, a burnt loaf of bread, hunger starved faces, crisp air blowing through forest leaves, birds chattering, shocked faces, slips of paper, hushed whispers, mahogany tabletops, bottles of whiskey, whisk of blonde hair, whisper of a spear through the hair, fiery dresses, resonating booms, red hot smeared blood, a well placed arrow, frantic kisses, purple berries, screams of agony, broken rules, death sentences, long nights, nightmares. A kind of hard found love. ・ welll maybe I did that right? it was fun anyway ・ { #hungergameaesthetics #hungergames #reflections #poetry }

QOTD: How many books are on your tbr? . . Yay I’m back with more photos 🎉I only took enough for the next week though so I’ll have to find time to set up for another shoot soon 😅 . . I was looking through my shelves today and realized I have a TON of books on my tbr 😭Most of the books on my shelves are unread, and of course I have a few books on my birthday and Christmas list too 🙈There’s just too many books and not enough hours in the day 😖
Working away on some bookshelf reorganization! I made two pies, cleaned my house, and hit my reading goal for #averyharrychristmas so I am feeling amazing but exhausted. . . Lots of people think I’m crazy for organizing by color, but it’s way easier for me to find things this way! How do you organize your shelves? . . #thebookshipproject #shelfie
It's almost the weekend!🍃 • It's been a long week in the world of Shailey and I'm so glad it's almost over. That also means it's another day closer to my birthday (four more days to go!). I'm getting some books and bookish things and I am very excited to share them with you all. QOTD: Do you prefer stand alone or series when it comes to books? A: I'm a series gal myself, I love reading continuing adventures and storylines. Probably bias because the first book series I read was Harry Potter and now I'm hooked!
I put The Dry on my TBR list a while back because it’s the first book by Jane Harper in her Aaron Falk series. Force of Nature, the second in the series, will be released in February. Also, I read this with a bunch of bookstagram buddies and can’t wait to discuss this with them after Thanksgiving. 📚Summary: Federal Agent Aaron Falk hasn’t been back to his hometown for twenty years. He and his father fled to Melbourne when Aaron’s friend Ellie died and neighbors insinuated that they were involved in her death. The death of Aaron’s childhood best friend, Luke, brings Aaron back to the funeral in Kiewarra, a small Australian town in the country suffering from a two year drought. 📚This mystery initially gave me a vibe like Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. The story was well crafted and I didn’t figure out whodunnit. (And there are actually two mysteries... ). Falk is a likable, flawed character and I’m excited to get my hands on the next book! #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaddict #booknerd #bookworm #readmore #books #bookish #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #bookreviewer #bookstagramfeature #igreads #bookphoto #bookphotography #booklover #bibliophile #bookishfeatures #lovetoread #kcbookstagram
Qotd: Where do you like to take your Bookstagram photos? . . Unfortunately both my house and my apartment have awful lighting, so I’ve been struggling on where to set up to take photos for a while 😭I finally found a really good spot that lights up my photos well, but unfortunately it’s right in front of my front door 😅So it’s a major inconvenience for everyone else when I set up shop, but hey, the things we do for Bookstagram 🤷🏻‍♀️
Soft power... . . . I’ve already recommended this book, but I just recently finished it (finally) and oh my god is it a good read, especially if you are an introvert such as myself. If you have ever thought to yourself “I wish I was an extrovert so my life would be easier” read this book. It’s amazing. . . #bookphotography #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #bookfeaturepage #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookporn #booksofinstagram #booksofig #quietpower #quiet #goodread #introvert #extrovert #selfhelp #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookaholic
Book title with "N" #thebookishnovchallenge DNF (Did not finish): I couldn't get into The Name of the Wind. I found Kvothe a rather irritating character. I know a lot of people love this series, but it just wasn't for me 🤗 #fanaticalbirdnov Underrated read: I loved The Eyre Affair! I have yet to read the rest of the Thursday Next series, but it's definitely up there on my TBR list! 📚👍🏻 #readwritenovember . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #bookfeaturepage #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #booknerdigans #booklove #booklover #booklovers #instabook #instabooks #bookcover #bookporn #bookphotography #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookblogger #ilovebooks #bibliophile #funko #funkopop #popvinyl #read #reading
Don’t compare your life to others. There’s no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time.
Transparency: I want to talk about forgiveness, and the one person I found it tiresome to forgive over and over again. My father. There are so many things that I've wished for. That he were better. That he was consistent. That he would take accountability for what he's done and what he's said. That he knew me better, and that it doesn't feel like two strangers talking. But I've forgiven him. I always do, because I just think that sometimes you just need to in order to push forward. But it always does depend on the situation. And although I've forgiven him, it doesn't necessarily mean I have to pursue anything further. We still talk, but it's minimal. Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting. But there's already so much that I'm angry about that I chose to forgive him for a sense of peace. I wanted to share this because I think it's important to know that forgiveness, in some cases, can be vital to self care. Because sometimes holding on to all that anger can destroy you, and you're too good for that. . . . Night my darlings 🌙💕
My 300th post! I cannot believe I’ve being doing bookstagram long enough to hit 300 posts.. holy ghosts Batman. It wouldn’t be a milestone post without a Shadowhunters themed picture haha oops? (This was totally planned) ♥️ My collection of the UK editions for this series is slowly going (very slowly), I can’t justify buying books I already own when there are so many books I don’t own yet I want to buy! ♥️ QOTD: what book(s) will you buy multiple editions for?

I feel like all the recent reading I've done has been for school. #lainitaylor #strangethedreamer #book #bookstagram #igreads #bookishfeatures #books #bookish #igreads #literature #evening #wednesday
