Pride And Prejudice Jane Austen Fiction 4/5 ⭐ A classic romance from one of my favorite eras in history, written by an authentic Victorian woman. I love Elizabeth Bennet for her love of books, her wit, and her inner strength. 🏷 There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me. - Jane Austen . 🧡🐥🧡 . Who is your favorite romantic couple, in fiction or nonfiction?
After I finished Song Of The Skylark by @the_ericajames , I was curious to know which genre this book would fall under and so I googled it. I found out that it belongs to the genre of Domestic Fiction/Woman’s Fiction. “Domestic fiction" is a term used to describe a body of popular narrative literature written by, for, and about women that flourished during the mid-nineteenth century. Did you know many works of Jane Austen fell into this category? 😅📚 Song of the Skylark provided me with an entirely new reading experience. With the biggest parts of the book set in the times of the second World War, it explored the themes of social class, love and sacrifice during the war in England. I was honestly shocked to find the extent of physical damage England suffered, not to mention the emotional repercussions. The story begins in Modern day London when Lizzie loses her job and has to move back with her parents in the countryside. She meets Mrs. Dallimore at an old age home where she had taken up work as a volunteer. Mrs. Dallimore has had a very intriguing teenage and adulthood, owing to it to the war and now she was spending her last days at the home. Mrs. Dallimore tells Lizzie her story of a young woman who stepped into the roles of a wife, a foster parent and a mother during tragic times of the war and how her contribution altered her life in ways she could never have imagined. 🌸🌸 I would definitely recommend it to readers interested in the Second World War and/or in the themes of family, love, and sacrifice. This book will continue to surprise you even as you turn the last pages of this beautiful story. #bookstagram#unitedbookstagram#booksaremagic#bookstagrammer#bookporn#booksandcoffee#betterreadschallenge#bookish#bookadict#bookaholic#bookshelf#readersofinstagram#instareads#literature#readingcommunity#secondhandbooks#wordgasm#writingcommunity#bookstagramindia#bookpassion#bookobsessed#booksbooksbooks#bibliophile#delhifambookclub

What was the first book you ever write a review for or left a star rating for on @goodreads? I've put mine below which was on A Discovery of Witches by @debharkness. A Discovery of Withes opens up to Diana Bishop, a thirty something scholar at Oxford who has turned her back on witchcraft. As a child her parents died and left her in the custody of a caring aunt, Sarah and her doting girlfriend, Emily. Diana had been successful in keeping magic out of her life until a magical manuscript crosses her desk to study. Ashmole 782 tugs at a part of Diana that she wished would stay buried. In an effort to avoid temptation she returns the book thinking no more of it. Diana's world is turned upside down as creatures begin to show up in high numbers in Oxford. One of which is Matthew Clairmont, a vampire professor who seems to show up whenever he pleases. The manuscript Diana had tried to ignore turned out to be a lost manuscript that could hold the meaning of life for witches, vampires and daemons. In an effort to get her life back Diana tries to recall the manuscript, but the library claims it never existed. A relationship between Diana and Matthew begins to develop and his sole focus is no longer on Ashmole 782. In a world where their relationship is forbidden Matthew and Diana rush against time to find the manuscript. Witches hunt and betray her as she tries to navigate herself in a world she never wanted to belong to. Friendships are tested, laws are broken, loyalty is a luxury and the past is never what it seems. You'll find the story of Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont one you won't want to walk away from. Welcome to the world of All Souls. #adiscoveryofwitches#deborahharkness#witches#review#booknook#booksofinstagram#prettybooks#readingroom#literature#shelfie#mylibrary#bookster#booknerdigans#classics#bookstagram#ilovebooks#readeverywhere#whattoreadnext#mybookfeatures#booktag#bookgeek#bookspines#toberead#bookishrainbow#bookhoarder
Do you like to read historical books? 📖💡 A lot of books that we read about communism is often about politics and the 'bigger' decisions. Not often you really feel the daily of an Sovjet inhabitant. In this book, written in '37, the young woman Ri leaves her Western country to move to the Sovjet Union, to follow her man who has a job as a specialist in a fabric.🔧 She misses her country a lot, but she knows she has to adapt to this new life and works on her communistic career. This book gives a great view into the daily life with a lot of details. Often it feels grey, but you can see the people in this book also look for amusement such as music and dancing.🎶 Read this when you want to know about Sovjet daily life, but not for a deep understanding of the characters. 🔸️Jiří Weil - The Heartbeat of Moscow🔸️
Ever get that feeling you're being watched? You probably are. Her sad eyes. Her thick lips. Her long dark hair. Her quickening of breath. Her hurried footsteps. Her undiluted fear. . • The anxiety a woman has when she knows she's being followed does something to the sadistic animal inside me. We all have issues, mine just run a little deeper than most. My sister and I had a childhood tarnished by an abusive parent. We grew up two very different breeds of our mother's creation. Then I discover the beautiful, yet broken, Alice Young. She's seeking advice, a place to unburden her thoughts. What she gets is a dangerous, callous predator who wants to quench his thirst with her tears. My precious, Alice, feels so alone, but she's not alone. I'm watching her. I feed on the fear of others. Alice Young may prove to be too damaged, even for my appetite. . • A DUKEY'S, DARK DELIGHTS TITLE.

Who else was reminded of Sheldon Cooper while reading this book? I picked this up simply because I was intrigued by the book's growing popularity. I loved Eleanor's straightforward wry responses. She's a lovable character and you start to really empathise with her and her "normal". The story explores the topic of loneliness, parental issues, upbringing, childhood scars (literally and figuratively) and friendship. While the overall tone of this book is light and funny, the author takes a deep dive into the dark hole of loneliness. The episodes felt very real. The acts of kindness and friendship in the story are a testament to the fact that mental health is REAL and a little help goes a long way. There were issues that I would have liked to see being explored more; the whole coming together of Eleanor, in the end, felt a bit rushed to me. I think the author has tried hard to take the middle ground, perhaps the very reason for its popularity. I was and still, am a bit confused about how I truly feel about this book. Yes, I enjoyed Eleanor's character, her idiosyncrasies, felt her pain and loneliness but I wanted something more too. Overall, I think it's a character based book and I would recommend it purely for Eleanor Oliphant's story. #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #gailhoneymoon#nowreading#womenwhoread#readers#bookreview#books#bookstagram#indiabookstagram#stories#bookworm#booklover#bookish#booknerd#bookaddict#booklove#bibliophile#reader#igbooks#booksaremagic#bookmagic#womenauthors#honestreview#fiction#mentalhealth#loneliness
I've barely made a dent in The Seven Husbands of Evenlyn Hugo. I'm currently at husband no. 3. 💍 ⠀ ⠀ This book is different than I thought it would be and I'm excited to see how it plays out. My favorite part of it so far is the setting—an inside look at Old Hollywood's rich and famous. 🎥 🍿 That's one of my favorite things about books—getting a detailed look into otherwise secret worlds.⠀ ⠀ QOTD: What's your favorite not-open-to-the-public setting to read about?
¡Hola, gente! ⭐ Con todo el tema de la #filbuenosaires, no estuve mucho por acá. Todavía no sé si compartiles algunas de las fotos que tengo y un poco de lo que fue mi viaje. Pero bueno, eso ya veremos. 💕 Sin embargo, hoy sí quiero compartiles una foto de estos libros escritos por #mackenzilee. La autora pasó por Argentina en el marco de la @ferialibroba y, básicamente, es un amor de persona. A su vez, me pareció muy divertida y enérgica. Fue genial haber tenido el placer de conocerla y pasar un rato junto a ella y otros BBBs. 😊 Probablemente ya conozcan #laguíadelcaballeroparaelvicioylavirtud, pero definitivamente no pueden perderse #laguíadeladamaparalasenaguasylapiratería, donde se relata la historia de Felicity un tiempo después de los sucesos del primer libro. Es una de las últimas novedades de VRYA y una de las apuestas juveniles más fuertes de la feria. Si eso no los convence, sepan que también viene incluida una historia corta llamada #laguíadelcaballeroparatenersuerte. ¡Un combo imperdible! . ¡Abrazo para todos! Cuentenme en los comentarios si ya leyeron estos libros o si pudieron conocer a Mackenzi en la FIL. 💜 . . #thegentlemansguidetoviceandvirtue #theladysguidetopetticoatsandpiracy #vrya#blogger#bloggerlife#reader#ilovebooks#bookblogger#bookaddict#bookaholic#bookporn#booklover#bookworm#bookgeek#booklife#bookish#booknerd#booksaremagic#instabook#bookstagram#bookstagramarg#bgarg#igreads#igreadersarg
Gifted | Saturdays are for burgers with friends 🍔, Netflix on the sofa 🛋 and reading 📖 What are Saturdays like for you? - Book no. 22 was The Brontës, written and illustrated by Anna Doherty ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - This picture book is part of the Fantastically Feminist series from @hachettekids and it’s all about the Brontës. I would’ve loved something like this when I was younger, I didn’t learn much about amazing women from history and I think it’s so important to educate kids about those who came before them and paved the pathway for feminism. This beautifully illustrated book follows the Brontës from the imagination games which became their first pieces of writing as children through to publishing some of the most important books in English literature. It celebrates imagination, hard work, writing and never giving up on your dreams. Highly recommended for those old and young in your life! - This book was kindly sent to me for review by Hachette but I have not been paid to post about it.
