171023 #bookishsolacereviews #bookreview Title: Dubliners Author: James Joyce My Rating: 2.4/5 Genre: Modern Classic . . My Thoughts: I always feel a bit bad when I rate a classic very low, but I just could not get into this collection of short stories. The fact that I needed to write and essay about it sadly didn’t make me like it more. I normally enjoy reading β€œold” literature and especially like writing style and language, but it just wasn’t the case for this. I am aware that capturing the feeling of the ordinary lives of the 20th century Dublin was precisely the authors intention but to me it was just boring. The theme of paralysis though was exceptionally written, and it made me like some of the stories; especially β€œThe Dead”, a bit more. What also was frustrating is that the tales just stop instead of ending which made the experience deeply unsatisfying. The book is in no way terrible, it just didn’t take my fancy. . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #igreads #bookishfeatures #books #book #reading #read #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookdragon #booklover #bookhoarder #bookish #bookphotography #novel #instabook

Day 23: Favorite Duology. I haven't read that many duologies! To All The Boys I've Loved Before used to be my fav, but it's a trilogy now... And I already just Six of Crows last week in a pic haha. The Wrath and the Dawn was an amazing surprise for me, I never expected to love these books so much. The covers are absolutely gorgeous and the romance is one of my favorites ❀️ I love the Persian culture (at least I think that's what it is?) in this book and all the delicious food that's mentioned! Another fav duology is This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab. Do you know of any great duologies? #thebookdutchessesoctober #thewrathandthedawn #theroseandthedagger #reneeahdieh #duology #favoriteduology #bookandleaves #bookstagram #bibliophile #celebratereading #celebratebooks #yafantasy #lovereading #nevernotreading #bookhoarder #coverlove #beautifulcover #bookphoto #booknerd #booklover #bookdragon

Morning Bookstagram! I am sick with whatever flu like thing I have so I am staying home from work today. I do still have an errand to run today so sadly I will have to get out of the house... It may do me some good though. πŸ˜… I am still working towards my three current reads and I hate how I haven't been able to get very far in any of them. 😭 Reading slumps are the absolute worst. How do you get out of yours? #readingslumps #redseasunderredskies #scottlynch #bookreader #reader #igbooks #bookdragon #bookworm #booklover #reader

Day 23 of #octoberlibrary17 - Fairytale day! πŸŽƒ I chose A Court of Thorns and Roses for this one. This book is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, in which Feyre is Belle, and Rhysand is the Beast (and Tamlin is totally Gaston). πŸŽƒ I loved these books so much, the whole trilogy. I mean, Faes are amazing, I love reading about them and how every author has different stories about them. πŸŽƒ I really hope this week will be better than last week. I'm going to see American Assassin with my best friend tonight. We both love Dylan O'Brien so that should be a blast πŸ˜‚. And then I won't be home for the rest of the week!

Hello, I just quickly wanted to talk about my username. I have realized that many might not understand it since it's in Hindi. So *drumroll* my username means "books" πŸŽ‰ but the plot twist is that normally, one would write it as kitabe so I decided to write as kitabae meaning "books before anyone else" i know i am so smart πŸ’πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‰ Happy reading!
