The Maison Théâtre Book was designed for a performance venue specializing in theatre for children and youth. In the spring of 2014, a benefit dinner was held for the Foundation with the goal of raising money to give underprivileged children the chance to experience the theatre. The event, called Tous debout pour nos p’tits loups, paired creative directors with chefs who created an updated version of their favourite childhood dishes for guests. A souvenir book was handed out to all attendees. Maison Théàtre’s geometric identity inspired the masque, the foundational element of the concept and evening. The masque permitted the expression of the duality between chefs and creatives. ⠀ Photo @lg2montreal⠀ #theinlay#theinlaydesign
I judged a book by its cover 📘 and unfortunately got exactly what was coming to me, if not what I was expecting. ✨Book Review, featuring style over substance✨ • An Unkindness of Magicians follows a competition among the underground magicians of New York City. This time around the competition that determines which house rules the Unseen World has come years early, and it comes at a time when magic starts going wrong. The power is fading. And we follow multiple magicians as they compete, some trying to maintain control and others who want to see the status quo crumble. • This sounds like an EPIC story right? A mix of the deadly consequences in the Triwizard Tournament of Harry Potter, the intrigue of the game in The Night Circus, and the magical atmosphere of the Element Games in A Gathering of Shadows. But boy did it not deliver. • This story suffered in terms of pacing, in terms of writing style and in terms of development. There’s nothing wrong with dropping readers in the middle of a story and expecting them to learn the stakes and about the world as you go along. But there is something wrong when a reader walks away from what was supposed to be the resolution of the main conflict and thinking “That’s it? That SENTENCE is what we get on this battle?” • There was a lot of potential here. The bits of the world that the author actually developed were fascinating and original. I really loved the dark nature of some of the characters and the secret of what was happening to the magic. But that doesn’t make up for the fact that the plot was completely surface level. It felt like a story pitch to an editor rather than a final product. I so wish this story was put in the hands of a better writer. • So goodbye, beautiful book. You will soon be rehomed to the nearest Little Free Library. What was the last book that you were disappointed by?
Hello fellow readers🤓 I decided to reread Wild, a memoir, by Cheryl Strayed for my next book to read. I read this book in November of 2015, being the first book I read while commuting to the city. I am curious to see what it will be like reading this for the second time! . Wild tells the story of how Strayed overcomes the grief of her mother’s passing by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. . Looks like I will be back to reading on the rails, wishing I was hiking on the trails🏔 . . . #wild#wildbook#wildnovel#cherylstrayed#pct#pacificcresttrail#memior#bookstagram#bookcover#bookmark#currentlyreading#currentread#reread#rereading#igbooks#femaleauthors#readwomen#readwomen2019
"it occurs to me that this is what it means to be a feminist. Not a humanist or an equalist or whatever. But a feminist. It’s not a bad word. After today it might be my favorite word. Because really all it is is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that’s always finding ways to tell them they’re not." • • I finished reading this book last night and can I just say I love the overall message. It's basically supporting the views of feminism and how most journeys often begin: a slow creep into the eye opening movement before being completely taken away with it's overwhelming current. There were some things that got me heated, but I do believe that was the point of it all. However, if anyone tried to do a "bump n grab" to me, just know that I'd probably end up going to jail due to uncontrollable rage. Nevertheless, this was a quick read with a simple message about feminism. It addresses issues like the school dress code and how it's completely ridiculous. It even touches lightly on racial issues, although the story focuses more on the inequality amongst boys and girls. Overall, a decent read with a clear message. I give this a solid 4 🌟's because I honestly feel the author didnt have to reference Bikini Kill every other chapter. • • • • • #bookstagram#bookislife#teensnovel#bookquotes#bookshelf#books#bookworm#book#bookcover#goodreads#readinglist#bookish#ya#youngadult#bookcommunity#bookphotography#booklover#bibliophile#bookhauls#travel#traveller#travelling#writersofig#writing#poetry

¡HOLA! ¿Como andan? ¿Que andan leyendo? Percy Jackson, Narnia, Fablehaven y Eragon fueron historias que me toco conocer hace mucho tiempo y que me marcaron mucho en su momento. Muchas de esas historias fueron las primeras con las que logré conectar y las que me abrieron este enorme universo que es el de la lectura. ¿Que historias les abrieron las puertas a este universo literario?
Who is up for a Heidi cover showdown? Show of hands? I love to collect covers and editions of books I cherish, and yes Marie Kondo, I have more than 30 books! Like 300, maybe. So I'd like to know which cover you love best and why. Also, have you read #heidi lately? Sometimes a book is just so gorgeous, like the #puffininbloom edition in the middle, my prettiest book, period. But sometimes a cover accurately depicts the character and stories, like the #vintagebook on the left. Or, as my pal @carrottoppapershop points out, sometimes it gets a key detail right, like Heidi's BLACK hair! Which one yodels Heidi to you? #classicbooks#bookcover#bookcollection#bookish#vintagebooks#usedbookstore
2019 book 9: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks. Now this was a good plot where I pretty much had no idea why was going on. Partially because the clues were in the background and partially because the author gave up very little until it was dumped on you. Either way it was an interesting read and kept me entranced the whole time. Definitely recommend! Also worthy to note: in trying not to be a hoarder and realizing I’d rather read books I’ve downloaded or from the library, I’ve decided to get rid of 30-40 books I have on my shelves that I’ve bought and just don’t feel like reading. It feels like a waste but it’s only like $15 worth of books as far as what I paid. Hopefully without them, I’ll start reading the rest of my real books soon. #book#books#bookclub#booknerd#bookcover#author
Who else is excited for season 4 of The Magicians? 🙌 We definitely are. Have you read the books as well? I liked them but it's one of those rare cases when I prefer the filmed version 🙈 Anyway, this photo is from the photoshoot we had back in spring with @anahambalkova as the photographer. I'm also adding a couple of shots with me as Margo because why the hell not 💁♀️ ~Bailey Book: #themagicians#levgrossman#helpthemagiciansremember#margohanson#margocosplay#highqueenmargo
