Na alles klar bei euch?
Mein Tag war vor allem bis Mittag nicht so prickelnd... Mit Kopfschmerzen und Übelkeit in der Arbeit sitzen, ist halt nicht so geil.
Nachdem ich nun den Haushalt für heute größtenteils erledigt habe, warte ich mit meinem neuen CR auf dem Sofa auf den Liebsten...
Habt einen schönen Abend
Soooo Today’s the last day for #ockingdoms photo challenge! I have 3 I’m gonna post, but the last one ie today’s will have to wait until I get home, most unfortunately, when there is low light or no lighting aside from crappy in home lighting which means I have to adjust the white balance on my camera and eveything. *gasps* That. Was an extremely long sentence, with plenty of run ons! Sorry grammar nerds. You may throw me in prison now for my misuse of the awesomeness that is the grammars! Also, and this is going to be a shocker for those of you that know me, buttttt I’m gonna drink me some coffee. Not like, a hot cup of just coffee. I’m gonna have me a moolate! (That is a thing. It is delicious! Unintentional advert for DQ. Go get one...)
Anyways, look at Isabutts red and completely chewed up toys! @metalbear666 ahahahaha I was trying to fit the Turd in the photo, but that didn’t happen. #bookishpeepsies#bookstagram#bookstagrammer#bookstagramit#booksofinsta#booksofig#reader#readers#igbook#igbooks#ireadya#bibliophile#ilovereading#ilovebooks#amtired
#ecaverypotterchristmas Day 11- Tom Riddle's Diary/ #aboutthebookstagrammer .
1. I am a dork.
2. I love horror, but I am also a scaredy cat
3. I was sorted into Ravenclaw, but I think I also have some of the traits of the other houses.
4. I severely overestimated my reading skills, so my 2017 goal is now 50 instead of 100.
5. I really like book AND movie Ginny.
Happy #mapmonday everyone. How are you? Ready for another week?
Today is also #mentalhealthmonday and I was MIA for couple of days due to my issues. I started to stress out because of bookstagram. Do people actually like my posts? Should I take better pictures? Am I doing enough? (OCD) and I completely forgot why I started Instagram in the first place! I wanted to fangirl over fictional characters, share my opinion, read reviews, find new books and friends. So I took some time off to think things through and recharge! Now i feel so much better!
So moral of the story is take care of yourself and don't stress out because of small things and if you do - take a break!
Thank you for reading this *
Check out @leahcnoble's photo and review of Waking Up White by Deby Irving: ⠀
On my drive to Maine this past fall I was listening to NPR, to a show all about racism. One of the women being interviewed mentioned this woman Debby Irving and said that her book was incredible, a really great resource for white people looking to learn about race and racism. Couple of days later I was wandering around, exploring Portland with my friend Leah and we went into a bookstore, where I ended up finding Waking Up White, Debby Irving's book. I started reading it in the aisle of the bookstore and was totally hooked. Debby Irving's storytelling style and personal stories make a difficult & complex topic ... accessible. I'm only a couple of chapters in but this is honestly a book I want to curl up with and read for hours.
‘It’s a mistake to think it’s the small things we control and not the large, it’s the other way around! We can’t stop the small accident, the tiny detail that conspires into fate: the extra moment you run back for something forgotten, a moment that saves you from an accident - or causes one. But we can assert the largest order, the large human values daily, the only order large enough to see.’
I seem to have blinked and it’s mid-December. University term time is always like this for me! It’s such a flurry of activity, a lot of which is very inspiring and enjoyable, but overall the weeks become so exhausting. One thing I can never manage is keeping up with is non-work reading, as is probably obvious for those who pay any attention to my feed! It’s just impossible, when rushing through so many novels and theory texts for teaching, never mind the research reading I try (and tend to fail) to keep up with.
Anyway, this is a roundabout way of saying that I’m VERY excited about the Christmas break, not least because I’ll get to read this collection of books, all of which I’ve received this autumn. I’m very grateful to publishers for sending me anything and these books in particular are ones I’m keenest to read now that term is winding down. So, look out for my reviews! And please, do comment with thoughts on any of the featured books.
I’ve started with Anne Michaels’ Fugitive Pieces, reissued by @bloomsburypublishing for their sumptuous new modern classics series. I’ve been meaning to read it for years and so far the prose does not disappoint. The quote above, my goodness!
