This book is full of wonders. Nina Allan’s The Dollmaker is the story of two outsiders, trying to find a way to be in the world. Studded with uncanny tales by fictitious dollmaker Ewa Chaplin, it’s a contemporary quest through a South West English landscape that is recognisable but slightly uncanny. Andrew and Bramber are characters who have stayed with me since I first read it, and this re-read confirms what a strangely special this book this is. Damned hard to do an elevator pitch for though.

What do you use to inspire ideas? I love pintrest, it's so great for things like this, for artistically challenged people like me!

My second book of the #unreadshelfproject2019 and my current read, a dark fairy tale fantasy set amidst the lands of 14th century Rus, combining Russian myths and medieval history 😍 As my writing world is in the forests and abandoned houses of rural England where all many of dark things dwell, this is a welcome change! . My question for today is what little thing has a fellow #bookstagrammer done for you that rocked your world? Back in early 2016, just before Gabriel was published, I set up a pre-order never expecting anyone to buy it. But someone did, and that act of faith I'll never forget 😍 Stand up, Shay @jamesfahyauthor and take a bow! . . . . . . . . . #thebearandthenightingale #katherinearden #bookstagram #bookstagramuk #booksoutofdoors #booklove #humansofbookstagram #bookhoardersofig #bibliophilelife #readersareleaders #readmorebooks #readersofinstagram #bookishfeatures #booksarelife #becauseofbooks #bookphotography #igreads #bookster #writersofinstagram #readaholic #storyteller #fortheloveofbooks #bookinsta #keepreading #readstagram #writinglife #whattoread #readerslife

So pleased to get a 5 star review for BETWEEN THE LIES #repost from @zubscovered with @regram.app ... 🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 There has only been a handful of times when I have read a book that has caused me to sit there and think ‘wtf just happened?!’ This was probably the most suspenseful and twisted, rollercoaster of a book that I have read this year. Assume nothing. Don’t be like me and think ‘oh yeah it was him, or him or her’ because I promise you one thing you won’t get it right. What would you do if you woke up and didn't know who you were? What if your past remained a mystery? What if the people you should be able trust are lying to you? The cliff hanger sentences that Adams leaves at the end of each chapter only adds to the suspense. You will feel an unhealthy obsession to keep reading long into the night to just confirm that your theory is right – only to find out you were so very wrong. She builds this tension in each of her chapters, a clever way to lure the reader away from the actual bombshell that she reveals towards the end, right at the perfect time. I actually sent Michelle Adams a picture of a revelation in the book with shocked face emojis and I don’t usually do this! It wasn’t a slow burn read either. It was fast paced and there was not a single time when I thought this is dragging a little. Adams is obviously a very talented writer and her information with regards to the medical condition of the main character was phenomenal. She clearly has put a lot of thought and research into this book. None of it was far-fetched and it all intertwined with the narrative effortlessly. This book did it for me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars were awarded and it was worth every single damn star. Bravo.

The Year Of Miracle And Grief by Leonid Borodin. A twelve year old boy finds magic, mystery, romance and sadness at beautiful lake Baikal in Siberia. Deep in Siberia lives the oldest lake in earth. When a small boy arrives on its banks he is amazed by the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains . As this astonishment yields to inquisitiveness he begins to explore the fairytale of the area .... I must admit I had never heard of this book before I received it from the lovely sam @thelondonbookman as part of our xmas book swap. At under 200 pages long it was moving little book. It reads almost as if in someone’s dream and was a lovely blend of genres. I liked the elements of fantasy intertwined in the stunning descriptions and raw emotions very much. I would recommend to fans of books such as The Book Of Lost Things. It’s a book I will look forward to rereading in a few years as I feel I will be able to take something new from it each time. A unique and beautiful read.

This book!!!! Written so purely, the string of emotions this novel stirred in me is massive. When All is Said is the story of 84 years old Maurice and 5 toasts he makes; on a milestone of his life, he is sitting on a barstool and remembers all 5 human beings with feelings of joy, pain, anger, regret, happiness, longing. It's so beautifully written, I confess it made me shed a tear or two, but it's more heartwarming than heart breaking, I promise. Isn't life itself is like that, and this is one of the books that tells slices of other people's life in a mesmerising way, you won't regret reading it. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - make sure you read it! Out in 24th January. . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk #readersofig #readersofinstagram #booklove #bookaccount #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #allthebooks #booklife #bookworm #bookspines #bookaholic #coverlove #beautifulbooks #instaread #fiction #ilovereading #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booknerdigans #amreading #totalbooknerd #epicreads #bookreview #bookflatlay #ireadeverywhere #bookdragons #whenallissaid

The Silver Road by @stina_jackson ⁣⁣ Three years ago, Lelle's daughter went missing in a remote part of Northern Sweden. Lelle has spent the intervening summers driving the Silver Road under the midnight sun, frantically searching for his lost daughter, for himself and for redemption.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Meja arrives in town hoping for a fresh start. She is the same age as Lelle's daughter was - a girl on the brink of adulthood. But for Meja, there are dangers to be found in this isolated place.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As autumn's darkness slowly creeps in, Lelle and Meja's lives are intertwined in ways, both haunting and tragic, that they could never have imagined.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I LOVED this book. It's a story of hope, love, loss, desperation and strength. It was well written, the main characters were likeable and my heart went out to them both for many different reasons.

Heyyy I’m back !! So I actually read this book about a year ago and it was the first thing I’d ever read by Marie Lu. I was immediately captivated by the story. It’s so fast paced and exciting, a real page turner. Once I opened the first page, I didn’t stop till I had finished the book. The story centres around June and Day, perhaps one of the most unlikely couples in YA literature, Despite that, I can assure you, you will ship them by the end of the series. Speaking from one fan to another you will not be disappointed:)) Best enjoyed with pukka turmeric gold tea. -E #bookstagram #bookshelf #marielu #juneandday #legend #legendmarielu #booksandtea #bookstagramfeature #bookstagramuk #pukka #bookstoread #books #bookish #bookworm #bookrecommendations

Not for the faint of heart, this Scandi noir comes from the writer of the tv series The Killing. With a multiple murder happening within the first few pages you know this is going to be a grizzly journey. We follow the Danish police as they try to find a sadistic killer dubbed The Chestnut Man, as he leaves a chestnut doll behind at every murder scene. And things get even more interesting when it is discovered the fingerprints on the chestnut dolls belong to a politicians daughter who has been missing, presumed murdered for over a year. The pace really picks up in the final quarter and I had no clue who the elusive, murderous Chestnut Man was. And I really enjoyed the character of Hess, who never gives up fighting for the truth or justice even if no one believes him and it causes trouble.

Just a girl in her onesie and fluffy socks 🐧 . My favourite time of day to read is definitely in the morning while I have breakfast. Since I started working full-time I've had to get used to reading in 20-30 page intervals a few times a day, which is a shame. But the morning is so quiet and peaceful that it's the perfect way to set me up for the day. . I've nearly finished my Little Women re-read and MAY have purchased some more books at the weekend... whoops. I still haven't decided what's next, so leave your recommendations below! ⬇️ . #bookstagram #bookstagramuk #rereads #bookstagrammer #book #books #bookaholic #bibliophile #bibliophilia #currentlyreading #whatimreading #classics #classicnovel #classicnovels #classicliterature #littlewomen #cosy #quiet #peaceful

15. Career of Evil, by Robert Galbraith I don't read many series books, series tend to be fantasy maybe, or crime, which isn't my cup of tea. And then to contradict that I read all the Cormoran Strike books over a stretch of quiestish night shifts (latest one not read). Cormoran Strike is a private detective who investigates crime with his assistant Robin. These are such fun books, the characters are really interesting and the plots intriguing. Btw I never guess a plot twist. #careerofevil #robertgalbraith #cormoranstrike #365booksiveread #365books #booklover #bookstagram #bookworm #booksiveread #kindlebooks #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookreviews #rememberingbooks #ukbookblogger #bookstagramuk #crimefiction

Never before in human history have so few owed so much to so many, Mr Jiabao. A handful of men in this country have trained the remaining 99.9 per cent - as strong, as talented, as intelligent in every way - to exist in perpetual servitude; a servitude so strong that you can put the key of his emancipation in a man’s hands and he will throw it back at you with a curse. #bookquote #currentlyreading #thewhitetiger #aravindadiga #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookish #reader #igreads #instareads #bookworm #booklife #bibliophile #booklover #kindle #kindlebooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk

I picked this lovely little edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane up just before Christmas. Such a beautiful illustration leading your eye down that winding path into the glittering darkness 😍 I love the way Neil Gaiman blends genres. This is both a magical tale told by a young boy and a moving example of how childhood memories shape us. It contains dreadful beauty and symbolism all wrapped up in a coat of magical realism and fantasy. Marketed as an adult book despite the whimsical nature of its title, Gaiman admits that it wasn't plotted, it just grew, and that delights me as a lot of my work follows that meandering path. .

Are your favourite authors mostly men or women? Tidying up the shelves today -yeah, that's how I roll in my boring life!- I kind of thought about my favourite reads from last year. I was very lucky to receive copies of these fantastic books from publishers and also feeling happy that ALL of my favourite reads from last year are written by women!! Kate Atkinson's #transcription, Sarah Perry's #melmoth,daisy Johnson's #everythingunder, and Claire Fuller's #bitterorange Thinking about my favourite novels, Top five is 2 men and 3 women. I am glad that the image if author is shifting from the middle aged white men in tortoise shell glasses 😂 some women still write under male names in crime fiction, or with abbreviations. Apparently some people still think crime fiction is male business. 😕 This causes an irritation that is too difficult to bear guys. 😏 . . . . .#bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk #readersofig #readersofinstagram #booklove #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #allthebooks #booklife #bookworm #bookaholic #coverlove #beautifulbooks #instaread #fiction #ilovereading #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booknerdigans #amreading #epicreads #favouritebooks #ireadeverywhere #bookdragons

REVIEW: Columbine, by Dave Cullen 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 . I've heard this described as 'In Cold Blood but with a school shooting' - and I can see why. Cullen spent ten years working on this book, hoping to correct the assumptions and mythologies that sprang up around the tragedy (in large part due to media reporting like his own; he was one of the journalists reporting on the ground at Columbine). . Early on he has a tabloid-y habit of teasing unpleasant details to come, which left a sour taste given the subject matter - but once that stops it becomes a sweeping piece of journalistic detective work. Whether building painstaking psychological profiles of Klebold and Harris or exploring the effects of their actions on the survivors and wider community in the years ahead, the level of research and detail is astounding. It was also a slightly surreal and fascinating book for this English reader. I went through secondary school in the immediate aftermath of Columbine, but here it barely caused a ripple. No lockdown drills, no fear, no precautions of any kind in the years to come. In its gun culture America really does feel like a very very different society to ours, and it made this book a lot less... personal?... than I imagine it might be for readers across the pond. It was intense enough from here, so fair warning on that front. Definitely one of the best books I read in 2018 (and my last of the year) - thanks @zukythebookbum for the encouragement to finally pick it up! If you haven't read it yet, this April is the 20th anniversary of the shooting; I believe there's a new edition of the book on the way next month. Highly recommended. .

🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 I have been eagerly awaiting the release of #theaupair since last year. So, when I was able to get my hands on a copy, I cast aside my many other books and put this straight to number 1 on my reading list. A grand estate, terrible secrets, and a young woman who bears witness to it all. Obviously, when reading this statement (in conjunction with the beautiful front cover) my eagerness to consume this book was even greater. Having been able to finish the book in one and half days I could with confidence state that your own enjoyment of this book solely depends on how accepting you are with the pace that it moves and the circuitous ending it presents. I liked this book. It wasn’t a ground-breaking thriller, but it was good and definitely worth the read. An Agatha Christie bought into this generation. Admittedly, a little slow paced at times but I think in order to cover so much ground and past history it was needed. The narrative moves between past and present with both the au pair and main character (Seph) giving their accounts. The fluidity of the text was smooth and well written and the use of imagery by Rous splendid. She was really able to create a vivid image in my mind of the sea, the majestic country house and the cliffs. The characters portrayed unity as siblings and their own individual characteristics was described in perfect detail. One or two characters (like the brother’s girlfriend) I would have liked to have been explored in a little more detail, but this is only because when she is introduced, I thought perhaps she may be part of a bigger storyline. The book itself it definitely worth your time and read. There is a lot of attention on this book at the moment (I have noticed so many of you have read or want to read it) but the only advice I would give you is read it as a blank canvas. Trust me you will enjoy it a lot more. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Zubs 💛💋 . . . . #bookstagram #ukbookstagram #bookstagramuk #londonbookshops #ukbloggers #booklist #bookstack #unitedbookstagram #bookphotography #booksbooksbooks #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #ilovereading #photooftheday #instagood #instalike #mybookishlife #mybookishfeatures #amwriting

Will this be my next du Maurier read? The fortunate/unfortunate thing about working in a bookshop is coming across books that you still need for your #virago du Maurier collection. 📖 Dick Young is lent a house in Cornwall by his friend Professor Magnus Lane. During his stay he agrees to serve as a guinea pig for a new drug that Magnus has discovered in his scientific research. When Dick samples Magnus's potion, he finds himself doing the impossible: traveling through time while staying in place, thrown all the way back into Medieval Cornwall. The concoction wear off after several hours, but its effects are intoxicating and Dick cannot resist his newfound powers. As his journeys increase, Dick begins to resent the days he must spend in the modern world, longing ever more fervently to get back into his world of centuries before, and the home of the beautiful Lady Isolda... #dumauriermonday #daphnedumaurier #thehouseonthestrand

If you know me at all, then you'll be aware of my love for flowers. My flat doesn't feel right without some blooming buds in a vase, and I hope to have a garden of my own one day. It's no surprise, then, that I'm enjoying Fiona Stafford's gorgeous new book, The Brief Life of Flowers, which tells the incredible stories and histories surrounding well-known flowers. The dust-jacket is illustrated by the brilliant @angielewin - so lovely! * Appropriately, The Brief Life of Flowers starts with snowdrops, and reading this chapter is making me count down the days to when the Chelsea Physic Garden reopens at the end of the month, and I can go on one of their snowdrop walks to see these beautiful first heralds of spring. * * * * * * * * * * * #thebrieflifeofflowers #angielewin #bookstagramfeature #booknookstagram #bookaddict #bookcommunity #booknerdigans #goodreads #vscoread #vscobook #booklover #bookaholic #bookdesign #readabook #bookish #classicbooks #bookstagramer #booksforlife #bookslovers #booksfordays #bookishallure #bookstagramuk #booksfordays #alwaysreading #favouritebooks #bookishgirl #beautifulbooks #fortheloveofreading #bookishrestorative #fionastafford

14. The Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver This book has obviously done very well (international bestseller et al) but it's not very pleasent at all. I get that history has some murky (light word) stories to tell but this novel has very few redeeming features. Its about an American Family and their missionary work in the Belgian Congo in the 1950s, a grim place to be and still scarred from Colonial rule. I reckon there are better books out there to recommend to pals who want to learn about Colonialism and its disastrous consequences. I finished it because I was away and had no money and nothing else to read, but these days if I don't like something it goes down. Life's too short init. #thepoisonwoodbible #barbarakingsolver #365booksiveread #365books #booklover#bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagramuk #booksiveread #bookreviews #bookclub #booksididntenjoy #booksidontwanttoremember #lifestooshortforrubbishbooks

These are the three main diseases of this country, sir: typhoid, cholera, and election fever.

Book of the day: The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga I’m slowly settling into this book and have to say the imagery of India is amazing. Not because it’s beautiful, but because of its accuracy. Here is an accurate portrait of poverty and the caste system. #bookquote #currentlyreading #thewhitetiger #aravindadiga #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookish #reader #igreads #instareads #bookworm #booklife #bibliophile #booklover #kindle #kindlebooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk

I bought this gorgeous book on Thursday only to discover this was a second book of a trilogy! Do you have books like this- a bit like missing tooth 🙈 It's one if the things that angers me dear publishers: why don't you just number the books or say it's the second book in somewhere we can actually see? Now I need to buy the fiest book too? Maybe that??

Hello new week, how are ya? Also new #stripeyjumper alert, picked up this unbelievably cosy number in the sales at what my mother called ‘an old man shop’ but who really cares when it’s striped and warm?! On a bookish note, I finished off Less, Andrew Sean Greer, in bed last night- what a charming read. And charming really is the word because you fall completely in love with Arthur Less whilst he travels the world to escape an old boyfriend. One to pick up for sure. For now though it’s Filofax and cup of tea at the ready. Have a good start to the week everyone. * * * * * #mybookfeatures #thathyggefeeling #smallmomentsofcalm #thatvelvetfeeling #bookstagramuk #capturequiet #currentlyreading #embracingslowerlife #wholeheartedliving #slowmornings #readingisfundamental #fortheloveofbooks #filofaxpersonal #booksbooksbooks #homeisacupoftea #slowdownwithstills #onequietcup #slowandsimpledays #filofaxlove #theslowdowncollective #filofax #cherishandrelish_january #diariesofanoptimist #folkandstory #bookstagram

Happy Sunday 💗 I've had a bit of a crazy weekend in Glasgow, celebrating my friends birthday. Nothing really went according to plan but we had so much fun, and I'll share some bits on my story, if you're interested 💖 I hope everyone else has had a fabulous weekend with a good book as their companion (especially if it's The Wicked King)! ✾ ✾ Today's photo is of my close friend @aroundtheworldwithmarlene who also studies English literature, and has some beautiful tattoos. She's reading this book for uni, and was kind enough to lend me her arm for a quick shot 😂 ✾ ✾ ✾ Do you do buddy reads? Do your friends (online or in the real world) have similar taste in books as you? Or are you a loner when it comes to your TBR pile? ✾ ✾ ✾ ✾ ✾ #bathtubbibliographies #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #books #booklove #bookworm #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookdragon #themagicofbookstagram #bookstagramuk #shadowhuntersunday #icapturethecastle

Day 13 of #allthebooksjan19 = #socksunday So here is the very first picture I’ve ever taken that deliberately has my feet in it 😝. • I’ve spent my Sunday cooking and finally finishing City of Fallen Angels, it felt like it took me forever to get through this one! • What have you guys spent your Sunday doing?

City of Fallen Angels- Cassandra Clare ⭐️⭐️⭐️ • This is the fourth book in The Mortal Instruments series so I’m going to be deliberately very vague about the synopsis and simply say that this book continues the story of Clary Fray and her friends in the Shadowhunter world. • This was a book of two halves for me. The first half of the story I found to be slow paced and at times dull, it took me a lot longer to get through it than I was expecting because I had very little motivation to keep reading it. This surprised me because Cassandra Clare’s books are normally ones that I devour quickly. There just didn’t seem to be much happening in terms of overall plot development, and whilst it was interesting to get more of Simon’s story it didn’t keep me that engaged. • However in the second half of the story the action picked up and we got to see more of the other characters that we’ve come to know and love within the TMI universe. I felt like the various romances, both old and new, were not portrayed as well in this book as they have been in the previous books in the series, but it was still enjoyable to see more interactions between the couples. • If my rating was based on the first half of the book I would have given it two stars, the second half would have got four stars, so I’ve compromised and gone for a solid three stars. Definitely not the best book in this series, but it was still enjoyable for the most part. • If you’ve read the TMI series, do you agree with my thoughts on how this book compares to the previous ones? Or did you really love this instalment?

• 🇬🇧 Happy Shelfie sunday, everyone.📚 Enjoy every word of the story you're currently reading.📖💕 • 🇩🇪 Habt alle einen schönen Shelfie Sunday!📚 Und genießt jedes Wort der Geschichte, die ihr gerade lest.📖💕 • #shelfie #bookshelf #shelfiesunday #sunday #bookshelfsunday #bookstagram #bookstagramde #book #reading #booknerd #ireadya #iloveya #bookstagramuk

To sum up - in the old days there were one thousand castes and destinies in India. These days, there are just two castes: Men with Big Bellies, and Men with Small Bellies. And only two destinies: eat - or get eaten up. #bookquote #currentlyreading #thewhitetiger #aravindadiga #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookish #reader #igreads #instareads #bookworm #booklife #bibliophile #booklover #kindle #kindlebooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk

🖤🐑Well! I had no idea that there were so many #blacksheepofbookstagram when it comes to hyped books. Thanks for all the solidarity yesterday - I had been feeling guilty for abandoning a much sought after book. However, as so many of you commented, we all have different tastes and that’s part of the rich tapestry of life. The important thing is to be respectful and constructive in expressing more negative opinions. . Seriously though, some of you have mentioned books I have in my TBR shelves, such as Educated!! 😳. Do you think the shop will let me return it?! Also, thanks to you black sheep I will now be approaching The Nightingale, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, The Road, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Homecoming and The Goldfinch with caution!! . After DNF The Binding I created an “abandoned” shelf on Goodreads (link in bio if you want to connect there)...hoping not to need it too much! . So what’s your DNF policy? Do you always struggle on heroically, or do you abandon a book after giving it a fair chance? And what do you consider reasonable (page number/percentage) before ditching a book? I used to always finish books until a bereavement 8 years ago, and then of course I reassessed so many things. One outcome was concluding that life’s too short to slog through a book, and not to feel guilty (still working on that one!). Please tell me what your thoughts are on DNF unenjoyable books? . Pictured is a new book I received for my birthday. Swipe to see some of the featured authors. I’m aiming to venture into more short stories this year - do you read them often? . Hope your weekend has been relaxing and bookish. . #bookishconfessions #bookishconfession #bookstagramcommunity #reader #readersofinstagram

Holii 💕 Como ya sabéis estoy de vuelta en Londres!! Hoy me he tomado el domingo así: comer, té, dormir... y repeat. Las vacaciones me han dejado agotada, y no le puedo echar la culpa al #jetlag 💁🏼‍♀️ Hice un directo enseñando las moneces que me he traído de casa, así como algunas lecturas que van directas al TBR de este año... que os iré mostrando igualmente en stories y en las fotos los próximos días 😍 Vuelvo con muchas ganas y con mil ideas y lo que es mejor: inspirada. Estoy volviendo a escribir prácticamente a diario, cosa que no ocurría desde hace años. ¿Cuál es vuestro propósito de 2019? El mío seguir escribiendo y completar mi #readingchallenge de al menos 40 libros😍 #liveinlondon #reading #readingchallenge #readinlondon #bookstagramespaña #booktography #bookish #bookstagramuk #londonbooks #trafalgarsquare #book #leer #lectura #propositos #goodreads

Most people are chained to their own fear and stupidity and haven’t the sense to level a cold eye at just what is wrong with their lives. Most people will continue on, dissatisfied but never attempting to understand why, or how they might change things for the better, and they die with nothing in their hearts but dirt and old, thin blood - weak blood, diluted - and their memories aren’t worth a goddamned thing, you will see what I mean. Most people are imbeciles, really, but Morris was not like this. #bookquote #currentlyreading #thesistersbrothers #patrickdewitt #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookish #reader #igreads #instareads #bookworm #booklife #bibliophile #booklover #kindle #kindlebooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramuk

Michael Bond, who created our favourite marmalade-loving bear, was born on this day in 1926. I love the story behind Bond's inspiration for the Paddington Bear series: apparently, the writer took shelter one snowy Christmas Eve in Selfridges department store in London, where he spotted a solitary toy bear sitting forlornly on a shelf. Taking pity on the bear, Bond bought the toy as a stocking present for his wife, and they named him after their closest railway terminus - Paddington. Today, there's a statue of Paddington Bear at the train station, and I give him a friendly wave whenever I pass through. * * * * * * * * * * * * #bibliofunfact #paddingtonbear #michaelbond #bookstagramfeature #booknookstagram #bookaddict #bookcommunity #booknerdigans #goodreads #vscoread #vscobook #booklover #bookaholic #bookdesign #readabook #bookish #classicbooks #bookstagramer #booksforlife #bookslovers #booksfordays #bookishallure #bookstagramuk #booksfordays #alwaysreading #favouritebooks #bookishgirl #beautifulbooks #fortheloveofreading #abearcalledpaddington
