<div> —  Georges Perec, L'infra-ordinaire     <br> </div><span>What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms. To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us. We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we go downstairs, we sit at a table in order to eat, we lie down on a bed on order to sleep. How? Where? When? Why?</span>

What books have you had on your TBR for the longest time?


Mine are these four books.

“Boy swallows universe” is on my TBR for two years now. 😖

“We Hunt the Flame” for more than two years. 😣 I didn’t feel like reading it at the time but now the bookstagram is just filled with posts based on this book. And now that the sequel has been released, I’m gonna finish this book as soon as possible. I have read a lot of good things about it on bookstagram.

“Darius the great” too I’m gonna read very soon. Because this too has a sequel coming out and I don’t want to procrastinate anymore. 😬

“Sycamore row” has been on my TBR for three years now. 😶😶😶😶

This year I’m definitely gonna read these. 🙌

Also I had these three gorgeous bookmarks inspired by Arabian Nights all this time inside one of the books and I had no idea. 🥺🥺❤️❤️

I’m sorry for neglecting you guys for so long 😭.

“No human eye can isolate the unhappy coincidence of line and place which suggests evil in the face of a house, and yet somehow a maniac juxtaposition, a badly turned angle, some chance meeting of roof and sky, turned Hill House into a place of despair, more frightening because the face of Hill House seemed awake, with a watchfulness from the blank windows and a touch of glee in the eyebrow of a cornice. Almost any house, caught unexpectedly or at an odd angle, can turn a deeply humorous look on a watching person; even a mischievous little chimney, or a dormer like a dimple, can catch up a beholder with a sense of fellowship; but a house arrogant and hating, never off guard, can only be evil.” -Shirley Jackson (The haunting of the hill house)

Existence and perspective folks -

“ I see you everywhere, in the stars, in the river, to me you’re everything that exists;the reality of everything. ”

~ Virginia Woolf, Night and Day

“ The great object of life is sensation- to feel that we exist, even though in pain. ”

~ Lord Byron,Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

My favorite book trope is the ‘enemies to lovers to enemies’ trope

They start off as mutual enemies for stupid reason while they’re on the same side, realize that they’re actually in love with each other, and then end up on opposing sides anyhow. It’s just *chef’s kiss*

17/100 DOP

So today was a very normal day. I studied maths, though I wanted to move forward in accounts but I don’t feel like studying anymore so I m gonna end today with just this much. Though tomorrow I really need to get 70% of accounts syllabus covered or else me will be in chaos. Damn, “i don’t need sleep, I need my syllabus covered.“

Book Rec #1

I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman

I’ve heard the name Alice Oseman float about before, but never thought to check out her works. I usually don’t stray from the fantasy, romance genre (I’m basic like that).

However, I came across this because a friend (who hadn’t even read the book) recommended it solely because one of the main protagonists was a hijabi fangirl of a group (in her mind that equals me). Nevertheless, I bought the book. 

Things I love about this book:

  1. The diverse range of characters in this book is great thing to see. From POC protagonists, to the realistic portrayal of the characters with all their complexities. 
  2. For people that are/were part of fandoms, you’ll see that there are so many funny, relatable moments in this book. 
  3. Alice portrayed fandom culture so accurately. The good, bad and the ugly.
  4. It’s just a good read.

I cannot physically express how much I want to wear a poet’s blouse and dramatically yearn for the heavens to open up and reveal to me their wonders, while lying draped over a divan in my gargantuan library in my obnoxiously large château.

Can someone give me some good poetry recommendations? I really want to read more poetry but I’m not sure which books to buy. Oh also books written in verse!! I would like to read those too.

For any Harry Styles fans on here, read this book! There is a character basee on Harry in it, and this character is perfection. Do yourself a favor: buy, read, laugh, cry, fantasize and love. I’ll be awaiting the thank you’s after you’re done 🍓🍉🍒😍❤️
