Books have the power to transport you across the globe and take you to new places. I thought I’d share some of the books that have taken me around the world, and recommend some of them to you. Let’s start with the books that have let me travel around Europe… Continue reading “Travelling Through Books // Part One: Europe”
If you’re a book blogger, you have most likely heard of the bookish corner of instagram: ‘bookstagram’. It’s a delightful part of the internet filled with pictures of books – what more could you want to surround your bookworm self with?
I started @readerinareverie on Instagram around the same time that I started this blog, and, although my photography skills are in every sense of the word, amateur, I have really enjoyed being part of that bookish community too.
One of my favourite things about bookstagram is looking at the different themes and filters people use to edit their photos. I’ve been using a similar method to edit my photos for a little while, but I’ve recently found an app with my new favourite filter, which is saving me so much time from manually editing my pictures. I’m not normally a fan of standard filters, but I absolutely love this one, and thought I’d share with you how I edit my photos. Continue reading “how i edit my bookstagram photos.”
I have a very surprising fact for you…I have A LOT of books on my TBR! That means my Summer TBR is also pretty large! As such, there are way too many books that I want to read, that reading all of them will be pretty much impossible. So I’ve finally narrowed my list down to the ones that I simply HAVE to read before the Summer is over. The ones that I NEED to put aside time to read!
Welcome to the place where my reveries burst out from ink, soak into my skin and settle in my daydreams. Welcome to my reading corner. Continue reading “welcome to my reading corner.”
When it comes to book-to-movie adaptations, we all know that both the brilliant and the head-in-hands terrible exist. Particularly when it comes to books you have read and loved! Having such a strong attachment to a book you read and loved can be a blessing and curse for the day the movie rights turn into a reality on our screens. Today I thought I’d share the instances where my love for a book equalled my love for the movie, with three of my favourite book-to-movie adaptations, along with my checklist of essentials when it comes to enjoying these movie adaptations during a movie night!
This post is brought alongside Pure Flix, who came up with the brilliant graphic below, and the idea of this movie night essentials checklist! Continue reading “Favourite Book-To-Movie Adaptations + Movie Night Checklist | Pure Flix”
I recently came across a shelf I made on goodreads a couple of years ago, called: “Books-that-made-my-heart-do-the-jittery-thing”. I only added a few books onto it, but rediscovering that list reminded me of some of the books that made my heart beat a little faster because of the gorgeous romances depicted within them. Here’s some of what I found on the list… Continue reading “Books That Made My Heart Do The Jittery Thing”
April was National Poetry month, and I set myself a poetry-writing challenge of writing a poem every day of the month. I was expecting to give up very early on, but I’m quite pleased that I made it to day 25. Okay, so I didn’t make it through the entire 30 days, but I nearly did – and given how much work I’ve got for Uni at the moment, that was quite an achievement for me!
At first, I found writing a whole poem every day quite challenging. Mostly because of a lack of inspiration. Continue reading “National Poetry Month | On Making Inspiration”
