It’s recommendation time, friends! Do you have any most favorite books that you’d like to recommend to me, or anyone else reading this post?? I totally want to recommend *The Remnant Chronicles* series by @maryepearson, because these books are SOOOO good and definitely some of my faves, and I really need more people to read the series so you can love it too! 🥰 What about you?? What book or books would you recommend??

It a brand new week... are you planning to read anything really awesome this week? I am currently SO behind on my January TBR right now and I’m stressing a little that we only have 10 days left in the month🙈 My plan for this week is to hunker down and read as much as I possibly can, starting with *Circle of Shadows* by Evelyn Skye, which I just started, and am already loving! 🤓 What are you planning to read this week??

  • It’s a dreary, rainy day here in Alabama today so I’ll be curled up with a book for the rest of the afternoon. I’m currently reading DOPESICK but I like to mix in a fiction book when I’m reading a nonfiction book with a heavy topic. It gives me a chance to take a break and escape into a story. I think I’m going to pick my fiction read from this #bookstack. Which book would you recommend?

  • another russian classic that’s in my #tbr - i promise that soon enough i’ll start actually reading these massive novels instead of just posting photos of them!! i’m waiting until spring break though as i prefer lighter, easier reading during term.
.
here’s a poll: should i read war & peace, the brothers karamazov, the master & margarita, or crime & punishment first? i’m leaning towards crime & punishment as it’s such a classic and i’ve had so many people recommend it to me!
.
side note: got this copy of war and peace for $1 at a thrift shop - score!

Drifter
by Kristy Marie
Publication Date: January 21, 2019
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser
Cover Model: Patryk Stawinoga
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Blurb:

Bianca

Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him. 
Hayes

Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. I figured if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here at the quiet limit of the world”… as a monk will repeat a simple pregnant text, over and over again in prayer.” ― Evelyn Waugh, The Loved One “Mr. Schultz, you're jealous of whispering Glades. And why wouldn't I be seeing all that dough going on relations they've hated all their lives, while the pets who've loved them and stood by them , never asked no questions, never complained, rich or poor, sickness or health, get buried anyhow like animals?” ― Evelyn Waugh, The Loved One

  • No matter what you are going through, you are Never Alone! Life can get messy, give yourself permission to not be perfect and let the one who is perfect pick you up, guide you and comfort you. Love on those around you and lift them up in thier times of need, being a safe place! 
Highly reccomend lysa Terkeurst new book: Its Not Supposed to be This Way.... for anyone who wants to admit thier life hasn't always been perfect and you have or are walking through a season filled with some sort of pain.  A perfect read for living in the "messy middle". There are others out there who have went through pain too, and there is always hope! I realized I have come across so many in the last 2 weeks who out of conversation I have recommended this book... I figured I should finally just post for all ❤

  • // Right now If you choose to read the coming words from me, 
it means you're accepting to what I believe 
and then you're entitled to your opinions but do not have the right to degrade mine. // . . . . .

1. When I say that my principles are based upon my faith and that I truly believe in it, it doesn't mean that all the other people associated with my 'Religion' have to be like me.
It's the same case with people putting allegations on my belief saying that I too believe in killing innocent souls because my LORD orders us to.
And clearly this is by default in each and everyone's mind, but NO! This isn't right. Putting false allegations on my faith is WRONG. Because I don't worship Satan. .

2. When I choose to cover myself and agree that I'm more comfortable in it, it is not my parents or my religion putting words in my mouth. It is my sole choice. I'm educated and have freedom, so I'll always do what I have thorough knowledge of. Nobody can force me to do it.
If I'm wearing my choice and you don't agree to my dressing style, so you have the option to navigate your eyes from me.

3. Nobody should be allowed to harass other people with words and worse causing physical harm. Nobody has this right to bully people on the basis of what they do or choose to wear or decide to work on.

Religions, castes, believes, faiths, these should never come in between. Insulting people for their body shape is WRONG. Showing off your skills and degrading the ones who are trying to achieve something is WRONG. .

4. Killing people in name of SAVING YOUR CULTURE AND TRADITION is wrong. Now whether it comes from people who take name of Lord before blasting the bomb in the mob or is it the mob that murders the person for false accusations, it is all WRONG. (continued in comments) . . . . .

  • A Time to Keep Silence 
by Patrick Leigh Fermor, DSO OBE

SOLD

Signed and inscribed by the author.
1957 1st UK Edition, John Murray London (author's third book)
(the previous ed was limited edition by Queen Anne Press 1953)

Hardcover red cloth w/ Dust jacket, clipped, see pictures.
Fine condition. Clean and tight copy.
Jacket shows some closed tears, old tape stains on the back (see pictures), now plastic protected. "A wonderful insight into the calm and contemplative 
world of the monastery from a premier travel writer." In A Time to Keep Silence, Leigh Fermor writes about a more inward journey, describing his several sojourns in some of Europe's oldest and most venerable monasteries. He stays at the Abbey of St. Wandrille, a great repository of art and learning; at Solesmes, famous for its revival of Gregorian chant; and at the deeply ascetic Trappist monastery of La Grande Trappe, where monks take a vow of silence. Finally, he visits the rock monasteries of Cappadocia, hewn from the stony spires of a moonlike landscape, where he seeks some trace of the life of the earliest Christian anchorites. More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life. 
Leigh Fermor writes, "In the seclusion of a cell--an existence whose quietness is only varied by the silent meals, the solemnity of ritual, and long solitary walks in the woods--the troubled waters of the mind grow still and clear, and much that is hidden away and all that clouds it floats to the surface and can be skimmed away; and after a time one reaches a state of peace that is unthought of in the ordinary world."

    world of the monastery from a premier travel writer." In A Time to Keep Silence, Leigh Fermor writes about a more inward journey, describing his several sojourns in some of Europe's oldest and most venerable monasteries. He stays at the Abbey of St. Wandrille, a great repository of art and learning; at Solesmes, famous for its revival of Gregorian chant; and at the deeply ascetic Trappist monastery of La Grande Trappe, where monks take a vow of silence. Finally, he visits the rock monasteries of Cappadocia, hewn from the stony spires of a moonlike landscape, where he seeks some trace of the life of the earliest Christian anchorites. More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life.
    Leigh Fermor writes, "In the seclusion of a cell--an existence whose quietness is only varied by the silent meals, the solemnity of ritual, and long solitary walks in the woods--the troubled waters of the mind grow still and clear, and much that is hidden away and all that clouds it floats to the surface and can be skimmed away; and after a time one reaches a state of peace that is unthought of in the ordinary world." "More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life" (New York Review of Books). "His shortest book (and to my mind his best) it's hammered terseness is a good match for the sobriety of the subject" (Anthony Lane, The New Yorker). #sydneylights #sydney #books   #fiction   #literature   #reading #rarebooks   #bookshop #bookstagram   #instabooks #instabooks   #instagood   #igreads #readinglist   #classicbooks   #goodreads #bibliophile
