- 12.02.18 | monday | 22:37⠀ •⠀ hello loves! happy (belated) valentine's day! 🌹⠀ it's been a little while—a week—since i posted. if you were wondering where i went, i was absent because of work at school. it has been INSANE, with so much due all of a sudden, but it's the norm whenever the end of the school year rolls by. 😩 ⠀ once this week is over, i can get back to regularly scheduled photo-taking and posting! i have to admit, it feels a bit strange coming back to bookstagram after the week-long hiatus though. ⠀ •⠀ non-fiction or fiction?⠀ fiction. i prefer escapism to being grounded (most of the time), and it helps me unwind when i'm stressed.⠀ (also, i didn't realise there was a colour scheme until i took a good look at this photo... 🤔)⠀ •⠀ the story shoutout session is now officially CLOSED. thank you, thank you to everyone who participated! i look forward to hosting another one, maybe a group edition for the next round. 💖⠀ i will be returning everyone's shoutouts in the next several days.

- 27.12.17 | thursday | 10:14⠀ •⠀ does anyone have a book that has been put off reading for months? ⠀ i have quite a number, but none have been delayed as much as #Seed. the premise looks promising—and that's why i bought it!—but lots of stuff (including new books) made me push the book back for quite a long time 😂⠀ •⠀ sypnosis:⠀ Seed loves you. Seed will never let you go.⠀ ⠀ Fifteen-year-old Pearl has lived her whole life protected within the small community at Seed, where they worship Nature and idolise their leader, Papa S. When some outsiders arrive, everything changes. Pearl experiences feelings that she never knew existed and begins to realise that there is darkness at the heart of Seed. A darkness from which she must escape, before it's too late. ⠀
