I started posting my 2019 reading goals a few days ago. As I mentioned in my last post, I've always had a certain number of books I wanted to read during the year and that was about as much planning as I did. For 2019, I'll still have a specific number of books I want to reach, but I'm also going to be a little bit more strategic as to the genre and topics and types of books I read as well . . . but I'm purposefully keeping my 2019 list short so that I still have plenty of time for "mood" reads. . Over the next couple weeks, I'll continue posting the different categories and book titles on my 2019 list. . I picked up these fiction classics years and years ago and they've been sitting on my shelf still unread. I know . . . it's pretty sad that after a university English minor and after years of reading at least 50 books a year, I still have not read these. I promise, I'll remedy that in 2019. . CRIME AND PUNISHMENT by Feodor Dostoevsky WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Bronte MADAME BOVARY by Gustave Flaubert ANNA KARENINA by Leo Tolstoy . What are some other must-read classics? Do you have any classics on your 2019 reading list? . . . . . . #bookalicious #bookphoto #bookworld #booksofinsta #igreaders #booklife #booksbooksbooks #readmore #instareads #bookishfeature #readersofig #totalbooknerd #tbrpile #2019readinggoals #2019readinglist #2019reading #2019tbr #readinggoals #readinggoals2019 #readinglist2019 #toberead #tobereadpile #tobereadlist #classicbooks #classicfiction
“I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don’t want there to be any second-guessing. I want you to be mine forever.” ❤️ ⚜️ I just finished it this evening...I can’t say much about this one other than I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! 🌹 This book officially comes out next week on the 27th. My review will be up in January, 2019 as part of the blog tour. ✌🏻 ⚜️ Setting up to make this picture looks good is very hard tho, taking the picture is easy but then when it comes to putting the things back after taking the picture really got me so exhausted! 🙃 ⚜️ Now moving on to picking up the next book to read. I’m hoping to read The Cruel Prince before the year ends...hopefully I can make it tho! I guess I’m gonna read Evoke tomorrow then start The Cruel Prince after that. 🙈 . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #bookblogger #bookdragon #totalbooknerd #adult #contemporary #romance #arc #thedatingalternative #lightroom #vsco #vscocam

Book morning! How was your weekend, Book Dragons? On Saturday I’ve read Daughters of the Dragons and on Sunday continue to read Skyward. But I waste a significant amount of time catching Pokemons on Switch 😅 Well, everyone need a break from reading sometime. Do you give yourself a breaks? Or you don’t every need them? 🇵🇱 Dzień dobry! Jak Wam minął weekend, Moliki? Ja w sobotę przeczytałam Córki Smoka (dziękuję @czaplinskaczyta ❤️) a w niedziele dalej czytałam Skyward. Ale zmarnowałam też sporo czasu łapiąc pokemony na Switchu 😅 Cóż, ja też potrzebuję czasem przerwy od czytania. A Wy? Robicie sobie czasem przerwy? Czy nie macie takiej potrzeby?
Happy Monday! Who else is gearing up towards finishing work for Christmas this week? It’s going to be a busy one but I’m so excited to be going to my parents for the festive break this weekend. I’m still going to be doing a little work over the holiday but I’m trying to prep as much as I can.

Dzień dobry! Kilka dni mnie tu nie było, bo jak się okazuje — grudzień to dla mnie najbardziej pracowity miesiąc. I przyznam szczerze, że weszłam już trochę w taki tryb robienia tylko tego, co niezbędne i odpuszczania całej reszty. ⠀ ⠀ Czekam na Święta z utęsknieniem, bo w tym roku, tak jak w zeszłym, stawiam na relaks i nie biorę na siebie dodatkowych obowiązków. Nie byłam w tym roku na urlopie i bardzo jest mi potrzebny taki tydzień bez myślenia o pracy. ⠀ ⠀ Na nowe zdjęcia też nie miałam czasu ani siły, zatem wrzucam odgrzewane kotlety z nadzieją, że są na tyle ładne, żeby mi to wybaczyć... 😅⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #read #reading #bookworm #readinglist #love #mybookshelf #stories #igreads #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookaddict #totalbooknerd #czytam #bookgeek #bookaholic #booklover #czytambolubię #instagramczyta #ksiazka #bookstagram #książkoholizm #ilovebooks #mybooks #bookworm #bookstagramtopasja #fairylights #fairytales #takczytam #tb
Have such mixed feelings about this. Spent so long reading it & I don’t want to dwell on it much more. . For me this was a tough read. Of course the themes are extremely important and I did find them eye-opening, poignant and often sad. I didn’t really know much about the social landscape/history of NI so I’m glad I can say I have a vague understanding now. . But in terms of the way it’s written the chapters and paragraphs are so long, which made absorbing this information really difficult for me. I also found I could only manage a few pages at a time (this could however be blamed on uni tiredness lol). For me #Milkman gets a 2.5/5 purely because I didn’t enjoy the reading experience. . In other news I’m going home for Christmas today yaaaay! And how cool is my new piece of #freddiemercury artwork? 🎄

Dzień dobry😊 ————— Kto z Was lubi piec?🙌 ————— Ja uwielbiam bardzo, ale jak coś upiekę, to zwykle to bardzo szybko znika i nie mam nawet jak zrobić moim gotowym wypieką🙈 Czasem dzieje się tak, że jak tylko się dowiedzą, że coś upiekłam, to „Przynieś, przynieś!” Zauważyłam, że ludziom nie chce się piec😅 A ja to bardzo lubię, ale jak nie mam czasu, to tego nie robię. Ale nie tylko słodycze, ale i dania bardzo lubię z piekarnika🤤 Kurcze, bo aż bym coś zjadła 😂 Miłego dnia😍 #książka #czytam #bookstagrampl #bookstagramfeatures #igbooks #readmorebooks #booksarelife #booksph #bookshelves #bookcover #bookreview #bookshop #booked #bookblog #bookoftheday #booklife #picturebook #bookhaul #bookgram #bookphoto #bookart #bookcommunity #booktag #bookcases #bookhoarder #totalbooknerd #czytambolubie #bookishlove #papierowyksiężyc #catsloversworld

Skończyłam "Tracę ciepło" Łukasza Orbitowskiego i biorę się za "Chrobot". Co do książki Orbitowskiego - długo nie mogłam się wciągnąć i cały czas mam wrażenie, że nie jest to najlepsza jego książka jaką czytałam. #bookstagramfeatures #igbooks #booksarelife #booksbooksbooks #bookshelves #booksigning #booksph #polishbooks #yabooks #bookcover #bookreview #bookshop #bookoftheday #booked #bookblog #booklife #picturebook #bookphoto #bookhaul #bookgram #bookcommunity #bookart #bookcase #booktag #totalbooknerd #bookhoarder #ksiazka #czytam #czytambolubie
Monday......... I’m jumping with joy, not really, because I’m sick 🤒 But that shouldn’t keep you from going to the Saxo link in my bio and find a special treat 😜🎁 Go get your love-fix. It’s a story of second-chances, friends reuniting and relationships expanding. It’s hot. It’s suspenseful. It’s swoon-worthy. It’s sexy. It’s romantic. It’s got all the feels 💕👌🏻 #totalbooknerd #new #freestuff #bookworm #booklover #lovestory #friendstolovers #heartbreak #pain #romance #romances #romantic
#Sunday was bliss... . . I finished A Christmas Carol and started hunting for my next read ahead of the new year. I bought 100 Nasty Women of History by @canhangram last June and it’s been moving up my TBR list steadily these past months. I decided I’d read a chapter a day, so I have 100 days of meeting awesome women every.single.day. Quite excited 😄 I’ll share a snippet as often as I can. I think every mother should buy this for her daughter (and herself, her husband, son and dog) ❤️ Have a lovely week! It’s just 7 days until #Christmas ! . . . . . . . #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookish #booklover #bookworm #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookphotography #bibilophile #vscobooks #bookishfeatures #instabook #totalbooknerd #igreads #currentlyreading #coffee #reader #readmorebooks #booklove #bookstagramfeature #bookphoto

It’s been so long since I used to post daily that now I don’t know how to get back into that routine? It’s like I’ve lost the motivation (?) but I still love books and this community and I want to get back to posting regularly 🤔 Maybe I need to try new filters and change things up a bit?

Ten dzień, dla Mikayli  był  bardzo ciężki, nie tylko straciła chłopaka i najlepszą przyjaciółkę, którzy za jej plecami ucięli sobie romans, który trwał dwa lata, ale także rodzinę i dom, w którym dorastała. Przypadkowo świadkiem przyłapania na zdradzie okazuje się Jake, chłopak o niesamowicie dobrym i wrażliwym sercu, który postanawia wziąć roztrzęsioną dziewczynę pod swoje skrzydła. Proponuje jej spędzenie czasu z jego znajomymi, Mikayla korzysta z tego zaproszenia chcąc oderwać się od rozczarowania, które zaznała. Mogłoby się wydawać, że wieczór jest uratowany, gdyby nie fakt, że po powrocie do domu świat dziewczyny wypadł jej z rąk tucząc się w drobny mak. Dom płonie, a jej rodzice i dziewięcioletnia siostra stracili życie, już nigdy ich nie zobaczy. Nie tylko została sama na świecie, ale straciła wszystko, jedyne, co jej zostało to sukienka, w której była na balu i Jake, który nie zamierzał zostawić jej z tym wszystkim zupełnie samej. Bez wątpienia Jay Mclean porusza w swojej powieści bardzo trudne tematy, które się skumulowały dotykając jedną kruchą istotę, która uczyła się, jak przetrwać, jak zdobyć siłę. Oprócz żałoby i zdrady mamy tutaj ciężką walkę o siebie, o zaufanie drugiemu człowiekowi.  Chociaż mam wrażenie, że taki bagaż doświadczeń, jaki spada na bohaterkę jest przekoloryzowany, czy też mało realny, zważywszy na to, że obcy ludzie bez wahania ofiarowują jej wszystko, bez udziału odpowiednich organizacji może nieco czytelnika skołować. Dziwnym zachowaniem jest tez przyzwolenie rodziców chłopaka na to, aby sypiali ze sobą w jednym łóżku rzucając uwagę, aby założył, co trzeba, na co trzeba i kiedy trzeba. 🌟🌟🌟 #snieznooka #bookstagrampl #bookstagramfeatures #igbooks #booksbooksbooks #booksarelife #booksph #bookshelves #bookcover #bookreview #bookshop #booked #bookblog #bookoftheday #booklife #picturebook #bookhaul #bookgram #bookphoto #bookart #bookcommunity #booktag #bookcases #bookhoarder #totalbooknerd #boikishlove #książka #wydawnictwkobiece #więcejniżmy #tv_stiffe
🐉🐉🐉 „Człowiek, bowiem, który ucieka przed własnym strachem, zwykle odwlecze jedynie najgorsze i nic nadto”. 🐉🐲🐉 „Przygody Toma Bombadila” to składające się z szesnastu, dłuższych lub krótszych wierszy, dotyczących tytułowego bohatera Śródziemia. Ta część książki może nie przypaść do gustu ludziom, którzy nie są miłośnikami twórczości Tolkiena, ci drudzy powinni być zadowoleni. „Kowal z Przylesia Wielkiego” opowiada historię miasteczka, w którym dokładnie, co dwadzieścia cztery lata zostaje urządzone przyjęcie dla dzieci, w trakcie, którego jedzą przepyszny tort, w którym ukryta zostaje gwiazdka będąca kluczem do Krainy Czarów.  To pewnego rodzaju pożegnanie tytułowego kowala z światem magii jego walkę z rzeczywistością jej pozbawioną. Szarą i pozbawioną czarów. Człowiek, który nie posiada wyobraźni zaprzecza każdej formie istnienia zaczarowanego świata. Kowal nie jest „ślepy”, widzi elfickich wojowników, którzy szykują się do walki. To także opowieść o tym, że w każdym z nas jest pragnienie poznania czegoś niezwykłego i bycie tego częścią. 🐉🐉🐉 #snieznooka #bookstagrampl #bookstagramfeatures #igbooks #booksbooksbooks #booksarelife #booksph #bookshelves #bookcover #bookreview #bookshop #booked #bookblog #bookoftheday #booklife #picturebook #bookhaul #bookgram #bookphoto #bookart #bookcommunity #booktag #bookcases #bookhoarder #totalbooknerd #boikishlove #książka #wydawnictwozyskiska #tolkien #opowieścizniebezpiecznegokrolestwa
Guys I finished ACOWAR tonight and my god that book utterly destroyed me more than ACOMAF did. Honestly, though, I’m gonna need some time to recollect myself before going on to read ACOFAS. Also, in this picture, I have two crystals of you couldn’t tell what they were. The bigger one is amethyst but you can’t tell because of the editing and the second one I’m pretty sure is a clear quartz.

#bookreview - Eleven year old Jack and his two sisters are waiting in their broken down car for their pregnant mother to return. She had said she would go phone for help but that was hours ago. Unable to bear the stifling heat, the children go search for her on the abandoned road. But she’s nowhere to be found. She never comes back. Three years have passed and Jack is struggling to survive and take care of his sisters. Then, one day he comes across a clue and tries to find out what happened that summer day which changed their lives forever. My top three thoughts on ‘Snap’: 1. There’s not much given away in the blurb, in the tagline on the cover or even in the first few chapters. I started reading this only because of the Man Booker Prize tag. But this book had me wanting to know more when I finally got into the flow of the story. There are no massive twists that try to throw you off nor are there any gimmicks that try to take away your focus from the main storyline. It’s a book that proves to be a compelling read once you finally get invested in it. 2. I appreciate Belinda Bauer for attempting to write a unique thriller. I personally go through so many thrillers in a month that this one stood out for it’s simplicity, different subgenres, clearly etched characters, intricate plot and straightforward approach. 3. There are so many different narratives in the book and it requires a bit of patience for all the different threads to finally connect. It’s a slow burner type of book that could have could have packed more of a punch with more a more tightly paced storyline. I felt I had waited too long to get to the ‘twist’ in the book. The first chapter promises so much mystery and it delivers on answers so close to the end. Rating:⭐⭐⭐(Liked it) #snap #belindabauer #audiobook #bookedin3

Book No. 12. "Gem in the Lotus" by Abraham Eraly. I'm always fascinated by history, especially when it's as rich, diverse and deeply interesting as India's. I plan on reading up as many of his books as I can get my unmanicured claws on. Suggestions on other books on Indian/Egyptian/Mesopotamian histories are always welcome. #booklover #bookaholic #bookstagram #endoftheworld #epicreads #booksarelife #bookcommunity #booknerd #bookpassion #bookrecommendations #greatreads #bookobsessed #bookworms #bookster #totalbooknerd #bookgram #readmorebooks #bookstagramfeature #ilovebooks #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookaddict #currentlyreading #bookclub #amreading #indianhistory
It’s that time of the year to look back and retrospect. A time to pat yourself on your back, make a commitment to do slightly better the next year. Well, to try, at least. It’s kind of a tradition and is among those few that I really love. And speaking of year-end traditions, looking back at my top reads for the year is something that I absolutely love doing. In the past 3 years, it has become even more so because when I look at the books I have read, it reaffirms my faith that even after motherhood I haven’t stopped doing what I love. It’s a validation in a sense of holding on to my pre-motherhood self which is a promise I had made to myself. . Anway. Speaking of books and reading, I have actually managed to read 45 books this year and am currently on to my 46th which I hope to finish before ringing in the New Year. . Before the reading counter strikes zero with the New Year, I always list my top reads from the year that was. If you have a chance, do take a look at the books that figured in my list in 2017, some great books in there. In keeping with tradition, therefore, here are my top reads from 2018 in no particular order. . . Click on the temporary link in bio🔗 for the complete list. . .

𝒞𝑜𝓃𝒻𝑒𝓈𝓈𝒾𝑜𝓃𝓈 𝒾𝓃 𝒶 𝒷𝑜𝑜𝓀 𝓈𝓉𝑜𝓇𝑒, I’ve only read the first Harry Potter Book, never finished the series. I plan to do so soon! This picture is a reaction of someone saying the 𝐵𝑜𝑜𝓀 𝒢𝑜𝒹𝓈 have judged me. . . . . .
🍂On the hunt for a good thriller, suspense, late night read. Any suggestions ? 🍂
🍂All smiles on my Bday today🍂

“Ohh books.. you still my soul on the most frantic days “ . . .
“It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world”. . . . . So I’ve officially finished Caraval. I’m currently 200 pages into Legendary and I must say I’ve officially gone down the rabbit hole. From beginning to end I was hooked, there was never a dull moment. I was completely immersed there were so many twist, turns and clues to decipher. I’m throughly enjoying continuing the story into Legendary. Stay tuned for an update and full review on the series so far . . .
